Go On Take The E-books and Run

And the good day for free fiction continues with another huge haul of free e-books, a continuing serial,  a science fiction story at Tor.com and more. And of course be sure to visit Regan Wolfrom and John DeNardo at SF Signal for more free fiction pointers [tell them Boris sent you  - Then you can mash].

• At HiLobrow: "Herland - Part 6" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Science Fiction. 1915.
      "But just as a clear-eyed, intelligent, perfectly honest, and well-meaning child will frequently jar one’s self-esteem by innocent questions, so did these women, without the slightest appearance of malice or satire, continually bring up points of discussion which we spent our best efforts in evading."

• At Tor.com: "Warm Up" by V.E. Schwab. Science Fiction.
     "It’s been 297 days since David died—and came back. He may have survived the avalanche, but the aftermath has been far worse. His wife moved out, taking his son with her, and a devastated David hasn’t left his house since, terrified of the mysterious new power that followed him home from the ill-fated expedition. After months in seclusion, David’s ready for a fresh start, and ventures out, determined to keep his power in check. But David’s power isn’t the one he needs to worry about."
