Free Fiction!

Now and again, we discover samples, excerpts, or even entire stories worth pointing out. Most are hosted by other sites.

Please note that we are not claiming to have any relationship with these authors, business or otherwise, by providing these links, here or elsewhere on the site. In some cases, we are friends. In others, they don’t know us from a hole in the ground, and that’s fine.

Also please note that many of the links on this page will take you to other sites.
