2017 Tor.com Free Short Fiction Reading Challenge
Back for another go 'round is the Tor.com Free Short Fiction Reading Challenge! We had a lot of takers last year and Tor keeps putting out great FREE short fiction so there are lots more to read.
This challenge is for individual short stories and novellas put out by Tor.com. We have over 450 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 still not affiliated with Tor.com. We just like their fiction.
