Today is a good day for book geeks. The 2014 Campbellian Anthology is currently available for download in myriad forms, for all possible electronical book-reading widgets.
Don’t understand why you should be excited about this? Let me ‘splain. This is basically the long list for writers nominated for the 2014 John W. Campbell Award For Best New Writer–a sampling from 111 different authors who crossed the first, biggest hurdle and had their first book published in the last 2 years. These are the best debuts out there, and though full books aren’t included (I believe they took basically the first 3 chapters from most nominated books), the whole thing clocks in at a staggering 860,000-plus words of world-shattering awesomeness. Oh, and did I mention that it’s free?
This is a limited time deal, so get on over there and download your copy soon. And if I may take just a moment for crass self-promotion, my own debut novel, A Private Little War, is one of the books selected. So if you haven’t read it yet, you’ll get a chance to check out the first three chapters for free. Nice, right?
