Via Bill Shunn comes this link to free downloadable science fiction. Some of the works (including Shunn’s novella “Inclination”) are available by following links on this page.
I actually wonder now that the ballots are a mix of traditional paper publishing (from magazines with ever declining circulations) and others are from online zines, does the easier availability of the online stories give them an edge in these voting situations amongst works of similar quality? Even when you can get copies of the paper sent to you, following links to Helix or SCI FICTION is lower friction and suitable for an impulse read.
One thought on “Download Free Science Fiction”
These days the writers or publishers of the nominated works usually post the stories free online anyway, so that pretty well levels the playing-field. What works aren’t made public are usually posted privately in the members area of the SFWA web site.
