Wednesday Night Lights: Tor.com

Many of you know who Tor Books is. As the publishers of Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, Orson Scott Card, Andre Norton, Cory Doctorow, John Scalzi, and many more--sometimes it seems like every science fiction or fantasy book is published by Tor--librarians are very familiar with them and their work.

This past Sunday, Tor launched a giant interactive social community at Tor.com. In addition to offering interesting posts and discussions from Tor employees and other experts in the field,* Tor.com has downloadable art, free fiction, and until Sunday, 24 free downloadable books from the Tor catalog.

Not only is this an exciting opportunity to take part in an online community hosted by the biggest science fiction publisher out there (how serendipitous is that?), but you can get some free books!
*In the interest of full disclosure, I am one of those experts in the field. I write on all matters short fiction.
