Freebie Thursday: Brief Objects of Beauty and Desire

This is the second installment of our new Freebie Thursday feature, where we’ll spotlight a book, comic or short story available for free. This week’s freebie is a collection of stories from the Year Zero Writers collective.

Brief Objects of Beauty and Desire is the first sampler from the Year Zero Writers, released in 2009, featuring work from the the likes of Sarah E Melville, Anne Lyken-Garner and Heikki Hietala. A collective of independent writers passionate about pushing boundaries and by-passing the chain of editors, publishers and marketers to speak directly to the reader, Year Zero Writers produce work that is bold, daring and unafraid of the dark. It’s available through Smashwords in a variety of e-book formats.

What’s more, their second anthology, Thirteen Shadows Waiting for Sunrise, is also available for FREE. If you like what you read, check out the Year Zero Writers website for more information about the publications available by individual authors.

And don’t forget, there is still time to get your hands on a free paperback copy of the Short Stack anthology we have released with Pulp Press – find out how you can win one!

Well if that’s not enough to make you forget it’s not quite weekend yet, we don’t know what is!
