The Lone Star Stories Reader, edited by Eric T. Marin

I like free books. So when I was alerted to the presence of a free PDF copy of this brand-new anthology, also available in print form, I was excited. I don’t get around to reading e-zines as often as I should, and there are some amazing stories one can read for free out there. This is a collection of fifteen of the best from several years of Lone Star Stories, and it’s available for download here. I do, of course, encourage you to buy a print copy if you like the PDF. Eric Marin pays the contributors out of his own pocket, and it would be great if he could recoup some of the costs. (Or, ideally, make millions of dollars and publish all sorts of things, but I’ll aim for a more realisic goal.)

The stories include: “Wolf Night,” by Martha Wells; “Seasonal Work,” by Nina Kiriki Hoffman; “Janet, Meet Bob,” by Gavin J. Grant; “The Great Conviction of Tia Inez,” by M. Thomas; “Angels of a Desert Heaven,” by Marguerite Reed; “The Disembowler,” by Ekaterina Sedia; “A Night in Electric Squidland,” by Sarah Monette; “Thread: A Triptych,” by Catherynne M. Valente; “The Frozen One,” by Tim Pratt; “Dragon Hunt,” by Sarah Prineas; “Manuscript Found Written in the Paw Prints of a Stoat,” by Samantha Henderson; “Giant,” by Stephanie Burgis; “When the Rain Comes,” by Josh Rountree; “The Hangman isn’t Hanging,” by Jay Lake; and “The Oracle Opens One Eye,” by Patricia Russo.
