Download Down Among the Sticks and Bones for Free Today, and Come Back Tomorrow For the Next Book!

Across the Green Grass Fields, the newest novella in Seanan McGuire’s acclaimed Wayward Children series, arrives on January 12th.

But before that happens, this week Tordotcom Publishing and the Ebook Club are offering free downloads of ALL FIVE PREVIOUS NOVELLAS! One per day. Every day a doorway!

In the Wayward Children series, children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

And this week, the Ebook Club is giving away one Wayward Children novella per day!

“A mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy — a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll’s and C. S. Lewis’ classics” —NPR


One Book Per Day Will Be Available:


Monday, November 30th: Every Heart a Doorway (Vol. 1)
Tuesday, December 1st: Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Vol. 2) (TODAY!)
Wednesday, December 2nd: Beneath the Sugar Sky (Vol. 3)
Thursday, December 3rd: In an Absent Dream (Vol. 4)
Friday, December 4th: Come Tumbling down (Vol. 5)

Download DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES before 11:59 PM ET, December 1st, 2020.

How it works: Subscribers to the eBook Club get a free sci-fi/fantasy book at least once a month (lately it’s been much more than that) just by signing up with a valid email address. You’ll get an email when the download window is open.

Note: If you’re having issues with the sign-up or download process, please email [email protected].

Note for Apple Users: iOS 13 changed where your download goes. They’re now either in your iCloud account or within a Downloads folder within Safari (the down-arrow icon in the top right). More troubleshooting help here.

For some Chrome users on Apple devices: Certain versions of Chrome on Apple devices are downloading the webpage instead of the actual ebook file. While we figure out a way around it, switch to a different browser or email us at the above help email and we’ll get you sorted.
