I was delighted to discover the Baen Free Library - a site started by writer Eric Flint, whose refreshing view on making works available electronically definitely meshes with my own. The offerings are limited, true, but I love that the books they make available are often the first in a series. What a great way to allow people to get a taste of a writer's work - and of course once people are hooked, they will want to read the rest of the books in the series. Authors who have one or more of their books available for free from this site include Lois McMaster Bujold, Catherine Asaro, Andre Norton, David Weber, Harry Turtledove and, of course Eric Flint. Selections change periodically, and various formats for download are available - so check it out, sf lovers!
