Tor.com goes live, get 24 free sci-fi and fantasy e-books

Tor.com logo beta

Back in May we got wind of a new social fanzine site especially for science-fiction and fantasy readers, Tor.com was due for launch we were told imminently, but as with these things the launch actually didn’t happen for a couple of month – over the weekend Tor.com was launched.

If you read the earlier post you know that had you signed up for the newsletter, Tor was giving away a free e-book every week in their weekly newsletter. Now that the site has launched, Tor will make available all 24 titles that were given away in the newsletter–only till the 27th of July, so head on over to the site and download them–in their Freebies Bonanza, there is a selection of artwork for download as-well, some would make an excellent desktop wallpaper.

Here is the list of all the available e-books;

    About half of these titles are available at no cost through Amazon.com Kindle books. The advantage to getting them through Amazon is they are then in your library should you ever wish to download them to your Kindle again.

    The titles that are not available from the Kindle bookstore as of this morning are the following:

    Farthing
    Lord of the Isles
    Lord of the Isles
    Sun of Suns
    Spirit Gate
    Starfish
    Touch of Evil
    A Shadow in Summer
    In the Garden of Iden
    In the Midnight Hour
    Battlestar Galactica – Available, but strangely priced at $6.29
    Darkness of the Light
    Three Shadows
