Looking for something good to read? A screenplay by Ursula K. Leguin, maybe? Novels by Brenda Clough, Susan Wright or Vonda McIntyre? Or maybe a handful of short stories to while away that wait for your much-delayed flight home from Kathmandu (now that we can look forward to a new and different president)?
Check out Book View Cafe, a nifty new website featuring work by over two dozen women writers working in SF, horror, fantasy, YA, and related genres. We (disclosure: yes, I’m one of the roster) have banded together to make the site a place where we can bring our out-of-print work back, republish short stories, and show off new and experimental fiction. Much of the work is free; there will be some available for subscription, and some for a nominal fee. Read on screen, or download a PDF to your computer to take elsewhere. And right now, since we’re in the roll-out phase, everything is free free free!
There’s also the Book View Cafe blog, with brief posts on divers topics by BVC authors. I know, another damned blog. But there’s stuff in there runs the gamut from comics to Camelot. You know you’re curious.
I don’t know if Book View Cafe is an entirely new publishing paradigm, as the big kids say, but it’s at least on the leading edge. And there’s really good stuff in there. Come check us out!
