The free stories I posted for International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day are now all available on AnthologyBuilder. In fact, there’s enough of my fiction up there now that you theoretically could put together your very own collection of Marie Brennan stories, since the minimum for an antho purchase is 50 pages of material. But I recommend finding a couple of other authors you like and making a bigger book, since $14.95 is kind of a lot to pay for nine stories, several of which are flash.

I really like the idea of AnthologyBuilder, and I hope it succeeds. This strikes me as the ideal approach to making an author’s short fiction backlist available, without depending on bookstore support for a collection.

    I only have a single story with AB, but it’s a novella featuring the same main character as my SF series. When I need bound copies for giveaways, I order it in sets of five. I’m my own best customer so far, but it’s a handy service to have out there.

      I thought of that after I made this post, actually. That could be very useful.

        5 of us are doing a reading at Wiscon, and put together an anthology of our work to give away as a door prize. Just a marketing ploy for us, but we’re curious to see if it generates any buzz ;o)

      So, now that I’ve posted about my own novella, let me clarify my last comment — I thought of this option after I posted about AB, and then Nancy Fulda moved at the speed of light and got the story into the database in an hour flat. So yes, it is handy as all get-out. 🙂

    I’m a major AB fan. I’ll remember to put some of your stories in my next anthology there ;o)
