Campbellian anthology: more than 860,000 words of free fiction from new sf/f authors

A reader sends us The 2014 Campbellian Anthology, a free and DRM-free ebook (.epub and .mobi) with 111 authors eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and over 860K words of fiction."

The volume you now hold in your hands is considerably larger, and includes a multitude of works from 111 contributors, spanning more than 860,000 words. (Should anyone be curious, that exceeds the combined total in George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords and A Dance with Dragons, which are -- so far, at least! -- the two longest volumes from A Song of Ice and Fire.)

  1. How ironic that the original 2013 anthology appears to be entirely unavailable anywhere on the web -- I literally followed every single Google link, and all the relevant ones pointed to the original blog post, with links that are no longer available. Such is the fate of a free-as-in-beer, DRM-free ebook after only a few months, whereas you can find just about any non-free book, even the most obscure ones, on torrent and cyberlocker sites these days with just a few minutes of searching.

    Anyone know where one can find a copy of the 2013 anthology? I couldn't find anything in the original blog post that suggested that the free anthology couldn't be redistributed, making its utter disappearance all the more depressing.

  2. What they don't tell you is that you may get all 860,000 words, but you have to assemble them yourself.
