Tor.com Free Short Fiction Reading Challenge
For the last few months our Uber Users have been busy adding short fiction to WWEnd and to celebrate the new feature I thought it would be a good idea to have a short fiction reading challenge. We have had a short fiction challenge before but it was for anthologies, collections, and omnibuses. The Tor.com Free Short Fiction Reading Challenge is for individual short stories and novellas put out by Tor.com. We have over 300 of them listed on the site so far and you'll find links over to Tor in the story descriptions so you can read them for free on their site. How cool is that?
And since its Tor, you know the authors are top notch household names... well, in more geeky households anyway. Authors like Kim Stanley Robinson, Ellen Kushner, Michael Swanwick, Seanan McGuire, Harry Turtledove, Kameron Hurley, Eileen Gunn, and Charles Stross to name just a few. These are a mix of original fiction and reprints in a multitude of sub-genres so there is plenty for everyone to love.
So the rules are simple: pick any shorts you like from Tor.com for your list. They don't have to be the freebies either -- Tor won't mind a bit if you buy some of their non-free novellas -- but they do have to be from Tor. As usual we encourage you to take a flyer on some new authors and of course we hope you'll try to split your reads between male and female authors. The reviews are just suggestions in this case but we do want to know about what you're reading so drop by the forum to let us know how you're doing. Don't let the reading level numbers scare you off -- these are shorts after all.
Note: WWEnd is in no way affiliated with Tor.com. We just like their fiction.
