Of course, there’s my stuff on this very website….then there’s all this free SF (note this is a work in progress):
- SF short stories
- Nature’s SF ‘Futures’ Stories
- Free Speculative Fiction Online – Lots of good stuff here, often from contemporary professional markets (see the Link Policy for details on what is eligible and included). Contains some tidbits from two of my favourite writers: Gene Wolfe and Samuel Delany.
- Best SF Presents
- Cyberpunk Project
- Science Fiction (Bookshelf) – Gutenberg.org public domain works along with other works licensed for free distribution. Also contains older, classic works, like The Time Machine, that you won’t find at Free Speculative Fiction Online.
- OMNI Magazine Collection, 1982-83 (Wayback Machine, Internet Archive, a repository of snapshots of websites)
- OMNI Magazine, Feb, 1984 (Wayback Machine, Internet Archive, a repository of snapshots of websites)
- OMNI Magazine, October 1978 (Wayback Machine, Internet Archive, a repository of snapshots of websites)
- Galaxy Science Fiction, 355 issues, 1950-1980 (Internet Archive)
Free SF Books From People I know:
- Cory Doctorow’s Free Stuff and from Free Spec Fic Online
- Peter Watts’ Free Stuff from his page and from Free Spec Fic Online
Other Free Audiobooks/ebooks
- LibriVox – Free public domain audiobooks.
- The Educational Audio & Video Library | Open Culture – Free audio books and ebooks.
- Project Gutenberg – SF Bookshelf link above, but Gutenberg has lots of other free books and audiobooks. I’ve downloaded classic audio books, like The Marvellous Land of Oz (a strange and wondrous book with a suicidal couch, an all girl Army of Revolt, and a gender-bent protagonist).
- Wikibooks – like Wikipedia, but for books! Mostly non-fiction. You can read books, create books, fill in gaps in existing books, edit books, etc. (I modified a few things in a technical book that were in error). In principle, I like this a lot, but I’ve found it useful only once or twice. Comes with the usual Wikipedia proviso regarding accuracy/completeness.
