Infinity Plus: New Science Fiction/Fantasy Books for the Kindle
For years, Infinity Plus provided a source for high-quality, free science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories online, plus nonfiction and some novellas. You can still access their website and read hundreds of great stories. But now, too, they've launched a great new e-book series that's very reasonably priced. Their first releases are as eclectic as the short fiction on the website. If you're looking for something new to read, check out some of these books.
A Writer's Life by Eric Brown -- In a departure from his science fiction roots, Eric Brown has written a haunting novella that explores the essence of creativity, the secret of love, and the tragedy that lies at the heart of human existence.
Take No Prisoners by John Grant -- In the fifteen superbly literary stories of this, his first collection, Hugo- and World Fantasy Award-winning author John Grant goes to places other fantasy and SF writers have yet to find on the map. As a special bonus, this new e-edition of Take No Prisoners includes two novelettes from the author's Leaving Fortusa cycle: "The Hard Stuff" and "Q".
One More Unfortunate by Kaitlin Queen -- Relentlessly drawn back to a circle of old friends and enemies, Nick Redpath has all kinds of issues to deal with. But first he must prove that he didn't murder his old flame, Geraldine Wyse... Kaitlin Queen is the adult fiction pen-name of a best-selling children's author. This is her first crime novel.
And, finally, the collected fiction of critically acclaimed SF/F writer Keith Brooke, in five volumes:
