For a Limited Time, Free Downloadable eBook of “Siren”

Luck and Death at the Edge of the World

For a limited time, I am was offering my story Siren as a free downloadable ebook.  It is now available for instant download on Amazon — and it’s priced at $0.99, which is pretty much the next best thing to being free.

This story was originally published in Albedo (see the cover image, below).

Albedo is Ireland’s longest-running, award-winning journal of science fiction, fantasy, and horror and it has published the likes of Robert Reed, Bruce McAlister, Brian Stableford, and Norman Spinrad.  It is a print-only publication, however, so Siren is not available elsewhere on the net.

Siren deals with the relationship between two characters through a series of incarnations in a series of settings — occupied Greece during World War II, Chile just after Pinochet’s coup, the New Jersey of the near future, and a space station in a more distant future.  The dynamics of their interaction appear to be stable and unalterable — if a little unsettling — but change is coming from an unexpected direction.

If you need a free PDF reader, go here.

If you want to convert the PDF into pretty much any ebook format you can think of so that you can read it on your iPhone or Kindle or other device, get a free copy of Calibre here.  I use Calibre to keep all the ebooks I’m reading organized, to change their cover art, and to add or change metadata.  It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty awesome and I recommend it highly.

If you read Siren, write me an email at and tell me what you think.

Tell me you loved it and read it three times in a row.  Tell me you think it’s trash and that you’ve deleted it and warned your friends against it.  Tell me it gave you nightmares or visions or a headache or a skin rash.  I welcome it all.
