Thursday Morning Free Fiction and Comics

More cool freebies! A few e-books (DRM free), the latest online issue of Stone Telling (speculative poetry) from which this morning's illustration comes, many cool comics, the conclusion of Robert Vardeman's serial at Paizo, and the conclusion of the awesome audio-fiction story "The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath The Queen’s Window" at StarShipSofa. Highly recommended! Based on the first two parts, it's easy to see why it won a Nebula award.
