As some of you are probably aware, I publish RPG material and fiction anthologies through a little outfit called NUELOW Games.
We've been doing okay with our fiction anthologies in the Robert E. Howard Collection, which are put together by yours truly, but I wish we were doing better. I like putting gas in my car, and I like even more the notion that people out there discover that Howard was a lot more than just a guy who created Conan and wrote fantasy stories. I have this crazy idea that if interested readers saw ratings or comments on the titles, they might turn into actual readers.
With that in mind, I am offering interested readers of this blog each one free copy of one of the following NUELOW Games collections of classic pulp fiction. I am hoping that you'll post rankings or reviews at DriveThruFiction.com when you're done with the book--be they good or bad--and I wouldn't mind coverage on your various blogs either. No strings attached, however... if you want a free book, just put a reply at the bottom of this post with an email address so I can send you the free download link. Or you can email me at stevemillermail [at] gmail.com; mention 'free NUELOW book' in the title.
Here's a list of the books that are subject to this offer; pick one in a genre you like. They are all in pdf format, which is compatible with most ebook readers, but can certainly be read on all desktop and laptop computers, as well as iPads and iPod Touches.
