Free fiction: Kelly Link's collection called "Magic for Beginners"

Cover image of short story collection titled Magic for Beginners by Kelly LinkKelly Link's collection "Magic for Beginners". [via Boing Boing]

Includes 2 Nebula Award winning stories, but misses 2 stories from print edition.

My own experience has been limited to only one of her stories - "Most of My Friends are Two-Thirds Water" (not from this collection) - and it wasn't a happy one because of language used. But one story is no way of judging an author, & she seems to be a well-talked-about one.

Table of contents.

  1. "The Hortlak"
  2. "The Cannon"
  3. "Stone Animals"
  4. "Catskin"
  5. "Some Zombie Contingency Plans"
  6. "The Great Divorce"
  7. "Lull"
