Just collecting at one place the various tools this site has to find free online fiction.
Variety SF links to free fiction via two totally independent tracks:
- Manual posts.
- Automatically find fiction via a software bot.
- All free fiction posts: archive, feed.
This is a selection of relevant entries from the main feed.
- Only "good" online fiction: feed.
Definition of "good" is, of course, a personal one - stories rated "A" by me.
Automatically selects relevant posts from among all free fiction posts. This is a low traffic feed - one or two posts a week, sometimes not even that.
Automatically generated posts.These are generated by software bots that continuously troll a large number of known publishers of online fiction. They generally find more fiction early on the month, but someone or the other is always publishing - so there should be something most days.
Note these are very high traffic feeds, particularly the later one; very few items are likely to appeal to any specific individual. Program generated tags are added as prefixes to feed item titles to allow automatic client-level filtering based on personal tastes. Ruthlessly delete what is not obviously of interest, or it can quickly overwhelm.
Caution: While I take some care to ensure inappropriate content doesn't slip in, it occasionally does. One of the costs of unattended software. Take care.
