Free fiction: Book View Cafe

From Guardian:

New site. "Launched on Saturday by a group of published writers – including the wonderful Ursula Le Guin – it describes itself as a new approach to publishing made possible by the internet, offering short stories, poetry, a screenplay and episodes from serialised novels for free".

"There are currently 21 authors involved, with a definite leaning towards the science fiction/fantasy/horror genre. They say they're doing it to establish a more direct link with their readers, to make some of their out-of-print work available".

Already they have some genre fiction, neatly organized in categories. Eventually, I hope my reprints [feed] will pick up their new content, but so far I haven't got a handle on how to do it.
