Baen books
David (and all other ebook affictionados who have not found their way to it yet), what I was talking about in Vancouver was the free library at Baen books, which now numbers some 44 entries: novels, short story collections, a couple of novellas, usually, as I said, the first one-two-three books of a series. They specialize in military SF and military-styled fantasy - but they publish Lois McMaster Bujold and Elizabeth Moon (the first SF and so far only writer my Mum has been persuaded to read). My own favourites are the Honor Harrington series by David Weber, and the series by Weber and Ringo beginning with March to the Stars. The series that starts with An Oblique Approach is also fun - alternative history in the latter days of the Roman Empire. Baen also believes in putting up generous dollops of forthcoming books; see their schedule page.
