Grimdark Magazine is run by people who love the grimdark direction that science fiction and fantasy seems to be taking.
Things like the Horus Heresy and the First Law series are what get our hearts hammering with excitement. There is such a wealth of talent in the sub-genre and a genuine need for an ezine that deals specifically in the grittier nature of people in futuristic or fantasy settings that we felt compelled to get this ezine up and running.
Also home to Evil is a Matter of Perspective: An Anthology of Antagonists.
Issues are available as either ePub or PDF.
Project Runeberg is a volunteer effort to create free electronic editions of classic Nordic (Scandinavian) literature and make them openly available over the Internet.
Founded in 1992, the project concentrates on old books from Sweden and the Nordic countries, and is an equivalent to Project Gutenberg. The catalogue seems to contain books first published in 1483.
Since it seems to be primarily a conservation project, there is a technical process involved in recontructing the books to read. See the site for more information.
Founded in 2012, Dragonwell Publishing is based in the US Northeast and publishes 4-6 books a year, focusing mostly on science fiction and fantasy.
Dragonwell Publishing titles have been featured by Publishers Weekly, ForeWord Magazine, RT Book Reviews, San Francisco Book Reviews, and Portland Book Reviews, and highlighted by Historical Novel Society and Mythopoetic Society. Our books have been among the winners of the 2013 ForeWord Book of the Year Award and 2014 Independent Publishers Book Award.
Books are available in ePub, Mobi and PDF formats.

Glitch Rainby aa5an: Read
Really enjoyed this novella, like early Gibson but with contemporary themes as source material. Drones, social media, self driving cars, AI, etc,....
Hopefully there's more to come.
Arachneby kevin: Read
Arachne is an unique entry in the cyberpunk genre. It steps between the dystopia of William Gibson and the otherworldliness of Phillip K. Dick.
Full of 'almost' body-horror, corporations so mega that they transact court cases in nanoseconds, and AI characters with more spiritualism in their circuits than the humans that inhabit this post Big-One San Francisco.
A must-read for cyberpunk fans!
The Thief's Gambleby kevin: Read
I was intrigued by the promise of a living fantasy world, instead of the usual "I was there three thousand years ago, Gandalf. And look, we're still using swords!"
A world where characters have lives, likes and concerns. Where technologies and discoveries change over time. This is epic fantasy that covers the passage of time in a meaningful way.
A fantastic series.
What people are saying about Libreture
I'm using Libreture to manage my books now and it's a very cool service...
I recently signed up to this. It's a nice way of storing all your DRM Free eBooks in one place. You can also share your library with others! It also helps support DRM-Free authors, publishers and bookshops by allowing users to link to where they got it from.
I think its really awesome, and ive been kind of glad someone is trying to build stuff in the eReading space that isn't vertically integrated.
