Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

Magic for Beginners Free Download

Cover ArtKelly Link’s collection of short stories Magic for Beginners–for which I have never heard anything but praise–has been made available for download on the Jelly Ink Press site.

The title story and The Faery Handbag both won Nebula and Locus awards. (They aren’t included in the free download for contractual reasons, although you can read The Faery Handbag here.)

Jelly Ink Press also offers her first collection, Stranger Things Happen, for free download. Best of all, both collections are made available under Creative Commons licensing. So far derivative works include audio versions, short movies, plays, and even a cello version of one of the stories.

If two freebies aren’t enough Link’s newest collection, Pretty Monsters, has just been released for sale.
