Free Fiction Monday: Dix

Free Fiction Monday: Dix

This week’s Free Fiction Monday is a little different. It’s a way to sample my new Diving novel, Searching for the Fleet, before its publication day on Tuesday, Sept. 18. The novella “Dix,” which was first published in the March/April issue of Asimov’s, follows Yash Zarlengo, an engineer aboard the ship Ivoire, as she tries to cope with the fallout of the accident that caused the Ivoire to be propelled five thousand years in the future. When First Officer Dix does something that shocks Yash to her core, she must put her own life on the line to uncover a threat that could mean the end to everything she knows. 

Dix,” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only. The story, which is part of the Diving Series novel Searching for the Fleet, is also available as an ebook, paperback, and audiobook. The novel will be released on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    You are wicked… I have too many books in my pile to begin another series of books, but this story makes me tempted… I really can’t, but I’ve already bought your Diving Into The Wreck book a year ago, when you put the Becalmed book in the Monday story, and it’s waiting in The Pile. Oh, and the Charming series, and I’ve been looking at The Protectors as it’s only one book so it would be easy to keep up if you decide to continue writing, and your FantasyLife omnibus looks tempting… I really should unsubscribe from your blog, this Monday stories keep adding to my books and I don’t have any shortage of reading material.

    • LOL, Ana. That’s the point of a TBR pile, though. All those things to read–when the mood strikes you at 2 am. Please stay on the list. You don’t have to buy the books. I just like sharing the stories.

        Don’t worry, I’ll stay on the list, I like your stories a lot, and you’re insights on the writing business, so even if I keep adding to my TBR which I shouldn’t (I’m reading books I bought 2 years ago), I’ll be around here blaming you for hooking me up to another series 😉

        • LOL. I just read a book I bought 10 years ago. And I just rebought a book I cleared out of my collection five years ago, thinking I would never read it. Now I want to. The author made double the money on me.

          And thank you!

    • Oh, and I will be doing a lot more with Protectors, now that I’m here and settled. I’m putting my research books in order now…
