Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Post by Deeb » Sun Jan 28, 2007 8:53 am

Edited by Admin: This thread continues from <a href="http://sennadar.plebian.net/forum/viewt ... t=7">Links to Good Reading (Part 1)</a>.
---

Ok, I was bored so I went through the whole thread and sorted most of the stories out for easier access, yes I probably mislabeled a couple stories, sorry in advance. I plan on going back and sorting/listing most of the adult stories later.

:)


All sites with mature content have been marked as such with a '(NSFW)' tag


Original Fiction:
  • http://www.sennadar.com
    http://www.asstr.org/~rapina (NSFW)
    • Rapina's story is a swords and sorcery adventure tale that includes adult themes and graphic scenes but is not nonstop erotica.

      A young woman unwittingly becomes caught up in the plot of vengeance of her sorcerous late aunt against the lecherous reverend who executed her. Yet by the time Rapina becomes a young woman and her Aunt's plot comes to fruition, certain unforeseen events have occurred. What was originally planned as a simple, reversible possession instead leaves Rapina both blessed & cursed with the rudimentary powers of a lust spirit and on the run from the Reverend's powerful noble family.

    • A huge repository of Fantasy and Science Fiction books, everything from Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp and Aesop's Fables to modern fantasy and sci-fi from Zelazny and others.
    http://www.baen.com/library
    • The Baen Free Library is a digital library of the science fiction and fantasy publishing house Baen Books where (as of April 2006) 81 full books are available for free download in a number of formats, without copy protection. It was founded in autumn 1999 by science fiction writer Eric Flint and publisher Jim Baen to determine whether the availability of books free of charge on the Internet encourages or discourages the sale of their paper books.

      The Baen Free Library represents an interesting experiment in the field of intellectual property and copyright. It appears that sales of both the books made available free and other books by the same author, even from a different publisher, increase when the electronic version is made available free of charge.

      In 2002, Baen also started adding CD-ROMs into some hardcovers of newest titles in successful series. They contain the complete series of novels preceding the printed book (for those books that were the latest in a series), other works by the same author, some works by other authors, and multimedia bonuses. The CD-ROMs have a prominent permissive copyright license which expressly encourages free-of-charge copying and sharing, including over the Internet.
    http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/
    • This site has all the known Baen CD's and some you where never able to get other than at conventions or such. No need to burn, just dump each to a seperate folder, and run the start_here.html and enjoy....

    • This site is all about the adventures of Jonathan Ashton. It is a dark tale, full of mystery, adventure, magic, and monsters. Evil abounds everywhere, and who knows how our hero will emerge?
    http://www.datapacrat.com/www.wulfarchives.com/ (NSFW)
    • Wulf is the main character in a series of erotic swords-and-sorcery adventures set in the world of Thystra. Wulf is a self-described ne'er-do-well who is nonetheless possessed of an innate sense of fair play, and who usually ends up doing the right thing, much to his own chagrin. Though he constantly complains of how badly the gods treat him, he seems to keep falling into bed with an astonishing variety of exotic women. Physically, he's of medium height, in good physical shape, with brown hair and dark eyes, and seemingly permanent beard-stubble. He's handsome in a roguish, somewhat boyish way that many women find refreshing, though his personality ranges from cynical resignation to depressive self-pity. Wulf is a decent street-fighter, a passable sword-fighter, a poor magician, and a competent thief. He likes to think that between his various skills, he retains enough to survive.
    http://www.nas-kan.org
    • In Brian Antoine's online serial novella Tales of the Family nas Kan, a sci-fi/magic-based society of anthropomorphic animals inhabits a planet in the Tau Ceti system.
    http://beyondthefarhorizon.com (NSFW)
    • Gina Marie Wylie, the lady behind the Beyond the Far Horizon site, probably wouldn't agree that it is a repository for adult fiction. Her vision for the site was a place for writers of genre fiction in her terms, e.g. Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Romance, etc. While she does allow stories with adult content, it really isn't the theme of the site.

    • FictionPress is a website intended to allow authors to showcase literary works and receive feedback from other users in the form of reviews. Registration is free of charge and at the current time the website has over 144,000 registered users.

      FictionPress was originally the "original fiction" section of FanFiction.Net, but it branched off into its own site, evolving from a purely fanfiction media to a site embracing all forms. At the moment the most popular form of writing on it is poetry, but many users also write fantasy, science fiction, essays, plays, and so on. Many other specific genre choices are available, and there is also a "general" genre for writing that doesn't apply specifically to the listed genres. The FictionPress community is made up of groups of individuals who review each other's work and create off-shoot forums. Commonly, philosophical and political debates may occur between users.

Aware of his people's history, he knows that his ancestors escaped from their country on the far side of the mountains during a time of great strife. As Tellimakis approaches adulthood, he is consumed with curiosity as to the fate of the great civilization left behind by his forebears, and sets off for the huge mountains in an attempt to rediscover the ancient Kingdom beyond. He finds many surprises on the way, not least among them, the charming Setisia.

    • These free novels are books and fictional works presented in their entirety online either as html or a downloadable file; they are available as free online novels from the authors in order to promote their work, seek representation, promote additional work, and/or develop a following. Though these free online novels are not found in the mainstream bookstores, many of them will eventually be discovered for their entertaining and enlightening value not always recognized by mainstream publishing until after a following is established.

      As he and his cloned girlfriend race across the US in a van modified to fly, they stay just one step ahead of assassins in an engaging (and often humorous) tale that takes them from Miami, to the Moon and beyond.

      This novel has a wealth of fast-paced science fiction action, more than a few plot twists, and many good laughs along the way.

    • Zig Zag has captured the imagination of Sabrina Online fans so much that she has become a minor recurring character in stories written about Sabrina. Furthermore she has collected fans all of her own. Often her stories are based in the "Sabrina-verse", with Zig Zag being the main character rather than Sabrina. The most well-known Zig Zag fan fiction would be "ZZ Studios" by James Bruner, which takes a closer look at Zig Zag, her life story, and chronicles how she falls in love with computer engineer James Sheppard. In nearly all Zig Zag fan fiction, James Sheppard (a German Shepherd/Coyote hybrid) is taken to be Zig Zag's special someone.

And now, after hundreds of generations, the Modern Era of Man begins. A new time. A new battleground. This new era has replaced Blades and Bows with high explosives, automatic weapons and complex computer code.

    • The novel introduces us to Robert Gu, a man slowly recovering from Alzheimer's disease thanks to advances in medical technology. As his faculties return, Robert (who always has been slightly technophobic) must adapt to a very different world, where almost every object is networked and mediated-reality technology is commonplace. Robert, formerly a world-renowned poet but with a notoriously mean-spirited personality, must also learn how to change and how to rebuild relationships with his estranged family. At the same time, Robert and his granddaughter Miri are drawn into a complex plot involving a traitorous intelligence officer, an intellect of frightening (and possibly superhuman) competence hiding behind an avatar of an anthropomorphic rabbit, and ominous new mind control technology with profound implications.

    • The book is a collection of short stories telling the tale of three generations of a highly dysfunctional family before, during, and after a technological singularity. It was originally written as nine novelettes and novellas, all published in Asimov's Science Fiction. The first three stories follow the character of "venture altruist" Manfred Macx starting in the early 21st Century, the second three stories follow his daughter Amber, and the final three focus largely on her son Sirhan in the completely transformed world at the end of the century. According to Stross, the initial inspiration for the stories was his experience working as a programmer for a high-growth company during the dot-com boom of the 1990s

Fan Fiction: Web Comics:
  • http://www.sluggy.com
    • The Sunday Times of London has described Sluggy Freelance as "TV buff heaven ... think The Office-style sardonic observations about everyday life set in Buffy the Vampire Slayer's universe, with Battlestar Galactica thrown in ... very funny indeed.
    http://www.elgoonishshive.com
    • El Goonish Shive (EGS for short) is a web comic by Dan Shive, launched on January 21, 2002, that depicts the lives of a group of friends in their junior year of high school. These lives contain transformation guns, alternate universes and a shape-shifting half-squirrel girl. EGS is not a simple gag strip; the characters are complex and believable presentation is attempted despite a setting where, for instance, females can use Hammerspace.
    http://blacktapestries.comicgen.com
    • Adult comic, in that adult scenes are present and the main character swears a lot. It's a pretty long comic thus far, and updates very regularly. Fantasy story about a shape shifter drifter.
    http://crimsonfury.comicgenesis.com
    • They now call me the Crimson Fury; a wolf with the coat of blood and the appetite to match. This is my story, the abhorrent tale of a human turned wolf in a kill or be killed world.

    • Kaerwyn on the other hand, may not let you leave. Kaerwyn is governed by the coexistence of Fate and Chaos. Fate controls the future, Chaos makes the path towards that future a little more interesting. The Dragons of Kaerwyn have forever tried to maintain a balance between the chaos and fate, but sometimes they too are consumed by the chaos, and that is when the proverbial shit happens.

    • Schoolbooks and Brimstone. Heaven. Hell. High school.
    http://www.megatokyo.com
    • Set in a fictional version of Tokyo, Megatokyo portrays the adventures of Piro, a young fan of anime and manga, and his friend Largo, a video game enthusiast. The comic often parodies and commentates on the archetypes and clichés of anime, manga, dating simulations and computer and video games, occasionally making direct references to real-world works. Megatokyo was originally presented in the gag-a-day format, with continuity of the story a subsidiary concern. Over time, it focused more on developing a complex plot and the personalities of its characters.
    http://www.machall.com
    • Mac Hall is about a group of college students who are typical slackers. While they sometimes do some actual work for classes, most of the time they just goof off and hang around the campus having fun. The comic takes its name from MacDonald Hall, a dormitory at Bowling Green State University. Later on, the cast moves into a house, where they currently reside. The series seems to have less focus on college life and more focus on the cast's antics afterwards, but it recently has started to return to a college focus.
    http://www.exploitationnow.com
    • In the beginning, Exploitation Now concerned a female porn star and a male moogle-like person, and their comedic (and sexy) mishaps, such as accidentally summoning tentacle monsters. Eventually, however, the focus shifted to a female mad scientist with a dramatic past. One strip alluded to this shift by showing Bimbo and Ralph in the background, sitting on a couch and musing, "Remember when we used to be in this comic?" Like many web comics, the comic slowly evolved from being a gag-a-day strip into long dramatic storyline, which finished off with a tragic ending.
    http://www.errantstory.com
    • Errant Story is a web comic by Michael Poe.
      This story is set in a complex world of Elves and Humans, of magic and guns, of love and hate.
    http://www.pvponline.com
    • Originally, PvP focused on video gaming and the larger "nerd culture" including comics and RPGs. 1UP.com described it as "The "real" origin of game-based comics", and in the same article puts it under the heading of "non-gaming web comics". Over the years, the humor has broadened to include technology jokes, relationship humor, in-jokes about and mocking of the generation gaps between the different characters, with gaming increasingly taking a back seat. Kurtz occasionally comes under fire for his satire.
    http://xkcd.com
    • Although the characters are usually stick figures, the comic occasionally features landscapes, intricate mathematical patterns such as fractals, or imitations of the style of other cartoonists (as during "parody week"). The subjects of the comics themselves vary. Some strips feature simple humor or pop-culture references, some are statements on life and love, and some are mathematical or scientific in-jokes.
    http://www.penny-arcade.com
    • As a (primarily) topical video gaming news comic, there is little plot or general continuity in Penny Arcade strips. Any story sustained for longer than a single strip is referred to as "dreaded continuity", something of a running gag in the news posts.
    http://www.clanofthecats.com
    • Clan of the Cats is an urban fantasy web comic by Jamie Robertson. It chronicles the adventures of a witch, Chelsea Chattan, who is also afflicted by an ancient family curse. In times of stress she transforms into a black panther. This, coupled by her increasing magical power, makes having an ordinary life rather challenging. The stories deal with supernatural themes mainly, but also creep into the realm of normal everyday life.
    http://www.wanderingones.com
    • The story is set in the Pacific Northwest in 2066, thirty-one years since the Earth was devastated by a deadly pandemic. Civilization as we knew it has collapsed, and many parts of the world have been reduced to a barbaric state. The comic follows the adventures of Ravenwing, a Native American warrior and tracker, as she attempts to battle a neo-Nazi nation that lies to the east and is intent on crushing what remains of civilization.

A rolling tremor passes through the land of Uton signaling a return of long absent magic as well as an ancient evil that accompanies it. Ryson Acumen, purebred delver, senses the changes throughout the land. In his investigations, he learns that legends he considered fables hold more truth than fantasy.

I was looking for links to my books, The Fovean Chronicles, and I came across this

You can read it here:

http://www.intwiz.com/Fovea.aspx - the link is one of those above

Someone commented that my website wasn't very good, which it wasn't, but it is a lot better now.

By the way, one of the reasons that it IS so good (the book, not the web site) is because literally thousands of people have given me their opinion on it. I post the chapters one at a time and then get opinions on them.

Some of the comments are of the quality of 'you are a doody-head', while others have been really good, such as 'no horse could be that big,' or 'you have the dwarves all wrong' or 'you need to know this about refining metal'

I don't mean to self promote - this just caught my eye, so I thought you might like to get the author's actual appreciation. You all are why I do this, and you don't always get to hear the author thank you. If any of you want an autographed copy of the first book (it's out now) let me know.

As the website is now, you can't read all of book one online for free. Only the first 3 chapters. After that, it appears that you need to buy it.

The second book in the series does appear to be free for reading online though.

Curious. I did read the first book completely. and online too. should even have it in my HD still. Must have decided to market it since. Just goes to show The early bird really catch the worm. Good book. Although the Antihero thing is taken a bit to the extreme, and it's even more exaggerated in the sequel.

I just wanted to say that I've really been enjoying the "Survivor" series by Scotland the Brave on SOL.net. The first two books were good, and I like where number three is going. If anybody likes the Eric Flint 1632 series, or likes the Conrad Stargard series, then you will really like this one also.

Fel, Is it done yet? Probably not, but I don't have anything better to do! Is it done yet? Probably not, but I don't have anything better to do! Ahhh, its done... dang, now what am I going to read???
New books! Yay! let the nagging begin! Is it done yet? Probably not, but I don't have anything better to do! Is it done yet? Probably not, but I don't have anything better to do!...

True, I really have nothing better to do in my free time, I mean, what could be better than reading Fel's stories or being messed with by Spec? Thanks for the fun spec!

Imagine somebody shoots you. Through your heart. And then you procede to beat the bugger up. Because while you certainly are dead, it seems that you forgot to die.

And suddenly you see Vampires, Trolls, Ogres, Faeries and other wierd creatures... and then the fun begins..

Not fantasy nor science fiction, but free:

<a href=http://rickdakan.com/download.htm> The Geek Mafia <a>

High-Tech thriller, lovestory, betrayal, car chases ...
A good read.
