Some SciFi Short Stories I've Had Published

Postby Driftwood » Wed Jul 03, 2013 6:13 pm

If anybody is a sci fi fan you can download six of my sci fi ebooks from the link below.
It may give some an idea for an adventure game, (Or maybe not.)
They're all free downloads in multiple formats. The tax issue is so convoluted (Even involves IRS) so I didn't bother.
Any comments welcome, flamethrower or otherwise. :)

I'm a speed reader so went through all 6 in less than 30 min. :wink: When I have a little more time I'll write up reviews for each on Smashwords. Keep writing!

If you're downloading PDF format it should open adobe reader and display on screen with option to download. What format did you select?

No registration required for free books(I think)

Yes that is probably the case for Kindle download but I've found I can download any of the file formats without logging in.
I download other books from Smashwords to pc then transfer to my Kobo via usb.

It wasn't just the Kindle d/l, I also tried to d/l as plain pdf so I could read on my PC, but I couldn't do that either.

Shucks! Never realised that. I've never had problems with free downloads. The site might be recognising my IP address even without logging in or maybe a cookie.
Thanks for the info.

All's well :wink:
I managed to download the Moon Relics to my nook. No problem.. So something is working.
Looking forward to read it.
