Free award-winning fantasy prose from Tor

I’ve only just seen this today, but the awesome Tor.Com, one of the biggest short fantasy stories publishers out there, is giving away a free mega-book of the award-winning prose they’ve been posting on their site for five years.

I’ve just downloaded my copy and it’s huge. I mean it. You should have a few extra hundred MB for the .pdf and the .mobi is well over 100 MB as well. 151 stories, 3800 pages. Pictures, great writing, everything. And you should get it ASAP, because the offer ends on Tuesday, September 3rd.

Get the eBook(s) here.

And have faith that they’ve got good stuff. They’re a bit like legends in the biz.
