tor.com stories

Now free on the US version of Apple’s “iBooks” store: Tor.com’s four major award finalists from 2009, nicely done up as elegant ePub files for your iPad (and, once iOS 4 ships on June 21, your iPhone).

  • “Eros, Philia, Agape” by Rachel Swirsky, Hugo and Locus Award finalist
  • “A Memory of Wind” by Rachel Swirsky, Nebula Award finalist
  • “First Flight” by Mary Robinette Kowal, Locus Award finalist
  • “Overtime” by Charles Stross, Hugo Award finalist

All four are also available for free in Amazon’s Kindle Store and the Sony Reader store; they’ll appear soon in some other channels as well. They’ll stay free until after the Hugo Awards are announced at Aussiecon 4 in Melbourne, Australia, over Labor Day Weekend.

Hey, thanks! Already read "Eros..." and the Stross and enjoyed, looking forward to checking out the other two during some upcoming would-be-boring commute. And as a newly converted e-reader user, I always appreciate free or cheap well-formatted e-books and stories.

As the art director for Tor.com I would like to state that these are officially deemed the cutest versions of these stories you can get.

@Irene: It's true. After checking them out, I was only barely able to restrain myself from wolf-whistling*.

Hey, what about those of us who don't use eReaders? How about some PDF love?

Almost all of our stories are available as PDF on the site:
http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=stories
(Or click on "stories" above.)

Morticah and fuddster: They should start populating other channels throughout the day.

I Tor! Going to get these right now.
For those without readers, the Sony store books are in ePub format and you can download the software and read them right on your computer without hooking up a reader.

@7: NickPheas, if you go to the pages for those stories at this web site and hover your mouse pointer over "DOWNLOAD," you get your choice of PDF, Mobi, HTML, or ePub to download.

Downloaded and stored to my iPad, ready for my reading enjoyment. Thanks, guys!

I already read the Stross, loved it. Filled with the Christmas spirit. The EVIL Christmas spirit! Hohoho-muahahahahahaha!

People looking for ePub versions can download the PDF versions and run them through the versatile Calibre software, available for multiple desktop platforms just a Google search away. It does e-book format conversions and manages your library on the desktop.
