Had a moment of panic last night while i was hashing out some minor details for Wraithkin (did you know that when an object orbits around the sun it’s called a heliocentric orbit? I didn’t know that…) when my Pandora station warned me that I was about all out of music for the month. You see, it gives you 40 hours a month free, and then after that you either pay $0.99 for the rest of the month or $36.00 for the entire year. That’s not bad until you remember that you’re paying for something you can get for free via your radio station.
Now, if you’re listening to hard metal, you generally can’t find that one your local radio station. Heck, the only time I hear “Enter Sandman” by Metallica is when SteveFM is preparing to broadcast a Hokies game (yes, Virginia Tech comes out to “Enter Sandman”. It’s why I adopted them as my second school, and am trying to figure out a way to implement the “chirp” from Ball State into their chants), or very rarely on one of the classic rock stations.
But this isn’t a music post. Well, not really. I was thinking of what Sarah Hoyt‘s been doing down at her little corner of the web and realized that, outside of the first six chapters of Corruptor and the almost complete The Absolute True Story of Santa Claus, I didn’t really have any samples of my work. Part of that is my utter suckage at writing short stories (as evidenced by TATSSC), and part of it is that I really don’t know what to write. Should I put up some newly created short stories? Or perhaps I should post snippets of something? I should I post a link to a bunch of free books so you can read them all in your spare time?
I like the first option, the second… not so much. But the third, the third I believe is a winner. So here’s a link to Baen’s Free Library.
Yep, free. No email registration required, no DRM locking you from sharing them with your friends. Go and read. I’ll see you next month, after you’ve worked your way through their free library.
