What would you say to an easy, free download of some of the best speculative writing of the year? I downloaded the 2013 Campbellian Pre-Reading Anthology a week or so ago, and it is worth every penny. No wait...it's FREE.
Straight from the Supefying Stories Site:
Named for John W. Campbell, Jr., whose 34 years at the helm of Astounding Science Fiction (later renamed Analog) defined the "Golden Age" of the genre and launched the careers of dozens of famous writers, the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer is presented annually at WorldCon to an outstanding author whose first professional work of science fiction or fantasy was published within the previous two years.
Now, for the first time in the award's 40-year history, the 2013 Campbellian Pre-Reading Anthology provides a much-needed and long-overdue guide to the newly emerging talents eligible for this year's award. Containing 80 complete short stories by 43 different authors, as well as additional information about another 58 potential candidates, the 2013 Campbellian Pre-Reading Anthology is your guide to the newest science fiction and fantasy writers who are helping to define the future of the genre.
Best of all, thanks to the generosity of the participating authors and their respective publishers, this e-book is absolutely free -- but it's only available for a limited time, so download your copy today at these links.
