I thought I'd just share this link with you. You may be familiar with Deborah J. Ross from her awesome novels in the Darkover world of Marion Zimmer Bradley, but you may not be aware of her science fiction... and she's now offering some for free over on her blog! Go check out her novel Jaydium, which begins here.
Deborah has been a real inspiration and mentor for me, and she's fantastic. I hope you enjoy Jaydium!
