  1. So many names I don't recognize - have to read more short fiction than I do. Thanks for posting this Jim.

  2. Just updated this post to include World Fantasy Award nominated stories "The Sun and I" by K.J. Parker, "The Prayer of Ninety Cats" by Caitlín R. Kiernan, and "Effigy Nights" by Yoon Ha Lee

  3. James, thanks for including me in the list, the signal boost is always welcome.

    However, the link you provided for my novella, "Trial of the Century," only links to the PDF.

    Below is the link that allows downloading of the user's choice of PDF, ePub, or mobi format. I like to be platform friendly. :)

    1. Thanks for the info. I've updated the link. And thanks for a great story.

  4. Have now updated the post to include the 2014 Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award nominated stories "Over There" by Will McIntosh and "The Irish Astronaut" by Val Nolan.

  5. "The Irish Astronaut" is not available in that link.

  6. "The Irish Astronaut" by Val Nolan, as well as “Opera Vita Aeterna” by Vox Day, have been taken offline by their authors so I've removed the links. Thanks.

  7. have updated this list to unlink a few more stories that are no longer online.
