Free SF, Fantasy and Horror Fiction for 5/16/2013

Something’s very rotten on a sailboat in the middle of the North Pacific. I’ve got Part 3 of my contemporary fantasy novelette, The Raven’s Head Dagger and the Custom of the Seas. For those of you who like coming late to things, there’s a Part 1 and a Part 2 as well.

What’s special about today’s free fiction?

  1. Tor has a story from George RR Martin’s Wild Cards shared world: “The Button Man and the Murder Tree” by Cherie Priest
  2. Books One and Two from Christopher Buecheler‘s The II AM Trilogy
  3. Books One and Two from Jay Swanson‘s The Vitalis Chronicles
  4. Silvia Moreno-Garcia has posted the first chapter of her upcoming contemporary fantasy novel, Young Blood. Read it and then give her all your money (it’s crowdfunding, so that’s what you’re supposed to do)

One thought on “Free SF, Fantasy and Horror Fiction for 5/16/2013”

  1. The series title for The Vitalis Chronicles causes an unfortunate disconnect in my head. I’m old enough to remember when Vitalis Hair Tonic was a best-selling grooming aid. (Google reveals it’s still manufactured. Hadn’t noticed, if it’s in any local stores. Possibly because between a hairline receding at relativistic velocities and thinning hair in general, I haven’t used hair-grooming stuff for a long time.)
