Good grief, would you believe it’s Friday already? Well, it surely is – and Friday means free fiction at Futurismic, as is customary. Eyeballs at the ready? Let’s go!
Here’s another couple of titles from ManyBooks.net:
Everything went a bit loopy with the Feedbooks RSS feed over the weekend, and I ended up with about 400 titles in my feed-reader, most of which seemed to be boxing-themed, for some odd reason. I think I only cleared out the duffers, and the sf titles I’ve already linked, but you may want to go browse around and check just in case.
Otherwise, there’s another huge wodge of Richard Kadrey‘s stuff:
- “Mouse Lights“
- “The Birth of Athena“
- “Herzog’s Benediction“
- “A Cautionary Tale“
- “The Enigma Event“
- “Field Trip“
- “Pembroke’s Saga“
- “Ubiquitous Computing“
- “The Tears of the Moon“
Plus another novel by Matthew Phipps Shiel:
- “The Stars, My Brothers” by Edmond Hamilton
- “The Premiere” by Richard Sabia
- “The Great Potlatch Riots” by Allen Kim Lang
- “Pharaoh’s Broker” by Ellsworth Douglass
Also via SF Signal are a few freebies from Solaris Books: a short story called “Tornado of Sparks” by James Maxey, originally published in The Solaris Book of New Fantasy, and the ongoing serialisation of Chris Roberson’s Three Unbroken.
EOS Books are giving away a free electronic version of Karen Traviss‘ novel City of Pearl.
And last but not least, your weekly helping of Friday Flash:
- Sarah Ellender is “Demon Driven“
- Justin Pickard has been poking around in “The Landsberger Vats“
- Gareth L Powell is stuck in the “Departure Lounge“
- Neil Beynon makes “The Climb“
And there it is; that should keep you busy for a while. Weekend web warriors should keep an eye on their feed readers over the next few days, as Futurismic begins syndicating its new resident webcomic – watch this space!
In the meantime, your tip-offs and shameless self-plugs are always welcome – FFF submission deadline is 1800 GMT.
Have a great weekend!
