    Thanks!

    In that category, here’s a great free podcast magazine of science fiction short stories.

    With Amazon, I always get the feeling that a bunch of authors are getting screwed to make these offers possible. Maybe the authors in this collection, or the authors of a lot of other titles, won’t get the pay they deserve.

    And speaking of Amazon, I won’t buy from their sweatshop mail-order business, either.

    It’s not just Amazon. Many companies embrace a race to the bottom pricing/wages ethic that isn’t right for me.

    I don’t enjoy paying more. I just don’t want to sow the seeds of other people’s unlivable wages & then wonder why they’re sowing the seeds of my unlivable wages later.

      This book is being offered directly from the publisher. The story has nothing to do with Amazon. The linked io9 article directs readers to the publisher’s blog:

      The only thing Amazon-related about this is one of the file-types they’re offering the book in.

      Nice speech, though. ;)

        :) oh. I went to the site and saw they sold stuff on the iTunes store. It’s a recurring magazine called “Stupefying Stories” modeled after the pulp paper magazines of old… It has no reviews right now. So if you grab the freebie, consider buying an issue and reviewing it. I will.
