Free Anthology; Tiptree Awards

Two quick things:

First, you may recall Mary Anne Mohanraj did me a mitzvah recently and did a thoughtful and very interesting guest entry on racism (two, actually). Some of you mentioned at the time you wondered what her fiction was like. Well, here’s a chance to find out: MAM is a contributor to a new, free speculative fiction anthology called Thoughtcrime Experiments, along with a number of other writers and artists. It’s available in html or pdf form, and soon as a publish on demand book. Happy reading.

Second, in addition to the Nebulas being announced over the weekend, the Tiptree Awards for the year were also unveiled, with the award going to The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and Filter House by Nisi Shawl. Congratulations to the both of them!

  1. Wow, The Knife of Never Letting Go was one of my favourite readings last year. That one was amazing, and this week, hopefully, I will start reading the second book in the series.

  2. I saw that MAM was also tagged on George R. R. Martin’s site as being one of the new Wild Cards writers.

    Which is awesome.

  3. The only version the site carried was the .pdf and manybooks.net only had the ePub version. Guess I won’t be reading it.

    I tried to generate a .mobi file from the html source files, but it wasn’t working properly. My last resort would be to crop the page numbers from the .pdf file and see if it’ll reflow nicely or not, then creating a TOC. But then I realized how much time I was spending on that and decided my time was better spent posting this comment :)

    Note to authors/self-publishers: please make sure your e-books are in ePub and mobi formats to cover most of the ereader market out there. And of course pdf for the non-ereader market…

  4. Dani, if you see this: I’ve reported the bug to Manybooks.net. I bet he’ll fix the problem soon, and I’d personally appreciate it if you’d check again later this week to get the book in .mobi format.

  5. Here’s a post with the download links all in one place.

    Formats are for Kindle/Mobipocket, ePub (I wasn’t aware of the ManyBooks.net version, but I like mine better anyways, if only because I can actually generate a sane Mobipocket from it), Sony Reader (the older ones that can’t read ePub) and Microsoft Reader.

    For those who own a Kindle 2, yes, the Kindle/Mobipocket file has section-by-section navigation (tilt the joystick left and right to skip ahead or back by sections).

  6. Thanks to both Sumana and Arachne! Both your links worked, and Manybooks.net is also up and running now. (I did submit a bug report to manybooks, I neglected to mention that in my post.)
