The Culture is one of the greatest universes ever conceived. Whenever I try to think beyond the horizon, I feel its influence. Thank you.
Suvudu has started up a free library that gives away electronic editions of the first books in some popular series. If you haven’t read Noami Novik’s Temeraire series or Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars series, check them out. I recently read the first three books in the Temeraire series and really enjoyed them. Think Patrick O’Brian with dragons. If you have a Kindle or Kindle for iPhone you can download them straight to your device for free.
Also, Tor is continuing to offer great books for free, this time giving away Charles de Lint’s Spiritwalk.
Tor.com is still giving away un-DRMed electronic editions of several books as part of their freebies bonanza through Sunday the 27th. Some favorites of mine including Old Man’s War, Crystal Rain, Four and Twenty Blackbirds, and Orphans of Chaos are there. If you have a Kindle, you can grab them for free though the Kindle store.
