Amazon lives in Pacific Standard Time, apparently.

Today (February 25th), in honor of the anniversary of the first US electric printing press patent (by Thomas Davenport in 1837) and as a thank you to her readers and supporters, editor Joanne Merriam‘s ebooks The Glaze from Breaking and A Multitude of Daggers are available for free!

A Multitude of Daggers is a fun fantasy novella loosely related to her short story “The Boatman” which was originally published by On Spec: The Canadian Magazine of the Fantastic in 2007.

The Glaze from Breaking is a reprint of the 2005 Stride Books paperback edition. Reviews of the 2005 edition called her images “sharp and vivid” (Verse) and “both unusual and just right” (Shearsman), said her collection is “well worth seeking out for its elegant exploration of love and loss, recovery and redemption, eroticism and the echoes of the heart” (chicklit) and compared her writing to Boris Pasternak’s early work (“where the poet does not so much observe the natural world as fuse with it” – Shearsman again).

They’re free until around midnight Pacific Standard Time.

In 140 And Counting contributor news: Simon Kewin was featured in trapeze magazine on Thursday and had a short story, “Wolf Emit,” in Every Day Fiction the same day.
