James Patrick Kelly has just launched a new monthly ebook ‘zine called James Patrick Kelly’s Strangeways, currently available on the Kindle and the Nook for the low, low price of 99 cents. Each issue will contain reprints of two of his best stories, two essays and some bonus material.

Issue Number 1 includes his multiple-award-losing novelette “Plus or Minus” and the short story “The Propagation of Light in a Vacuum”. There’s also an essay introducing the ‘zine and another discussing our chances of reaching the stars. The Spectacular cover was done by John Picacio.

Fiction for the upcoming issue #2 will be his 1990 Hugo winner “10^16to 1” and the quirky short “Unique Visitors”.

  1. multiple-award-losing novelette sounds like of snarky, John πŸ˜‰

  2. It’s from Kelly’s website.

     

  3. Yes, I should have included that in the quotes. πŸ™‚

  4. Honestly, I’m not sure the concept is sound. I rather pay for an ebook collection with twenty stories, that bit-sized pieces like this. Sure, you could argue that people won’t shell out that much money and splitting it into smaller pieces is smarter, as the barrier is much lower to shell out some money, but I think that only works if you already big-time famous (say, Stephen King level).
