Happy November 13! Have a present: The entire Subterranean Magazine #4 — guest edited by me — is available for you to download here, absolutely free. Why? Well, because we sold out the entire print run, for one reason, and for another reason we thought that these stories were just so damn good that as many people as possible should see them. And you’re as many people as possible! Congratulations.
Seriously, I’m extremely proud of this magazine. It’s a great mix of new and established authors, each of them taking some of the grand cliches of the genre and breathing new life into them. I got rather more than I expected when I signed up to edit this, and since I was expecting, you know, a lot, I was pretty dizzy with happiness at the finished product. I think you will be too. Read these stories! Love them! Nominate them for major awards!
The magazine is in pdf format so you can see the layout and art just as it was. Enjoy! Also, please feel free to spread the word — we like sharing this good writing.
And as long as you’re enjoying some fine written entertainment from Subterranean, let me also point out that until the 17th, Subterranean is having a 40% off sale on some of its hottest titles, including my very own You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop Into a Coffeeshop: Scalzi on Writing. This on top of books by Poppy Z. Brite, Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean, Joe Lansdale, Cherie Priest, Robert Silverberg and Connie Willis, among many others. Get ’em while they’re hot and cheap!
