|Hugo-eligible works just want to be free

Various Hugo-eligible works people might be interested in, for free or nearly free:
Future Visions [SHORT STORIES], available for Kindle for free. Lots of interesting hard SF short stories. I was wondering where all the hard SF was! Here is some, anyway. Some quite good stuff here — I'll probably end up nominating at least one of these stories, probably more. I'll try to post on this once I've finished them all.
Letters to Tiptree [RELATED WORK] is selling for Kindle for 99 cents until the end of the Hugo nomination period. I would have paid rather more than that for the Tiptree-LeGuin correspondence alone, which is wonderful and heartbreaking (although makes me feel a little voyeuristic). The "modern" letters vary widely in quality and appeal. The hilarious thing was that when the letters were written by people whose work I know, there was a 100% correspondence between whether I liked their work and whether I liked their letter. (I only guessed one, though — Nicola Griffin was pretty easy.) Anyway, it's definitely going on my Related Work list.
Citadel of Weeping Pearls (Aliette de Bodard) [NOVELLA] - forestofglory has informed me that she says on her website that she is happy to provide copies to those nominating for awards. I haven't read it yet (or even obtained it yet) but I really like her stuff, and let's face it, you have a novella slot left over, don't you? :)
