As reported on BoingBoing, publishing company Pyr has released Sean Williams’ novel, The Crooked Letter, as a free PDF download.
According to the author’s blog:
For those who aren’t familiar with it, The Crooked Letter is kinda urban New Weird on a massive scale. It’s been compared to China Mieville, Philip Pullman, Ursula K Le Guin, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Michael Moorcock, yada yada, and it won both the Aurealis and Ditmar Awards the year it was released (the first fantasy novel in the history of the awards to do so). Chronologically speaking, it’s the first book in my ‘Change’ series, and stands as a prequel to The Stone Mage & the Sea, The Blood Debt, and The Changeling. It’s also my attempt to take all the world’s religions and wrap them up in a crazy Darwinian package that even an atheist like me might be tempted to believe. It was the most difficult book I ever wrote, and now it’s free. Check it out!
I’m particularly excited about this because I’ve been wanting to release my novels on the web for as long as the web has existed, and this is the first time one of my publishers has agreed to do it. Huzzah! Tell your friends!
To get your very own copy, simply download it from the official Pyr website.
