Here we go again – it’s your weekly dose of free science fiction to read on the intertubes! Dive on in…
Just the one from Feedbooks:
- “Vital Ingredient” by Gerald Vance
SpaceWesterns presents “Semantica” by Fredrick Obermeyer
Strange Horizons presents “The Shangri-La Affair” by Lavie Tidhar
Subterranean Press Online presents “Three Fancies from the Infernal Garden” By C S E Cooney
Here’s an untitled snippet from Paul McAuley
A couple of stories from Interzone have made their way onto the BSFA Awards shortlist, and so TTA Press have set them free in PDF format so everyone can get a taste:
- Greg Egan‘s “Crystal Nights“
- Paul McAuley‘s “Little Lost Robot“
Escape Velocity celebrates similar nomination by going one further: you can download their first three issues in PDF format for a limited time.
Here’s a week’s worth of Everyday Weirdness:
- “Colors” by Mari Ness
- “Downtown” by DJ Barber
- “The Man with Inverse Gravity” by Christian M Heidicker
- “Digging Holes” by James Hartley
- “Gary Sump’s Hidden City” by Aaron A Polson
- “Memorywort” by Kurt Newton
Rather than enter all of these manually each week, I’ll just recommend you grab the Everyday Weirdness RSS feed.
As always, both you and we owe the inclusion of these little morsels to our vigilant buddies over at SF Signal:
- Mindflights presents “Soulsong” by Rabia Gale
- The Scientific Indian presents “Noah’s Ark” by Narendra Desirazu and “Touchstone” by J Ramanand
- Afterburn SF presents “Time Tracker” by G Miki Hayden
- Genrewonk presents “The Historian’s Apprentice” by S Andrew Swann
- Big Pulp presents “Affections Between Space” by James Boone Dryden
Plus another huge batch from the Free Speculative Fiction site. Phew!
Finally, here are a few bite-sized morsels of Friday Flash Fiction. The theme this week was ‘bad film title puns’…
- “MySpace: 1999” by Shaun C Green
- “The Man in the Iron” by Gareth D Jones
- “Full Meta Jacket” by Neil Beynon
- “From Tusk till Dawn” by Sarah Ellender
- “The Remains of the Clay” by Gaie Sebold
And that’s it for another week – don’t forget you can let us know about stuff that you or someone you know has published; if it’s free, science fictional and on the internet, we want to know about it!
In the meantime, have a great weekend, ladies and gents.
