Baen publishes only science fiction and fantasy titles, and touts their offerings as “powerful plots with solid scientific and philosophical underpinnings are the sine qua non for consideration for science fiction submissions. As for fantasy, any magical system must be both rigorously coherent and integral to the plot, and overall the work must at least strive for originality.”
I’ve found several great science fiction eBooks on this website – why not peruse it for yourself: you might find something you like? Once you click the link above, click on the “Books” link on the left-hand side of the web page. From there, you will see a good list of free material.
Once you click on one of the books and read its description and want it, you can download the Kindle version to your computer and then transfer it to your computer.
Once you have downloaded it to your computer, you will need to transfer it over to your Kindle. It’s pretty easy, and you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/xfer into your web browser for my instructions on how to do it – this is the same guide I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but you can read it for free by clicking the link.
Rather than transfer it from your computer to your Kindle, the Baen website has a pretty neat setup: it can also be yours by either downloading it to your computer or, if you sign up and authorize Baen’s server to email it to your Kindle, it will email it to your unique Amazon email address and it will transfer via Whispersync to your Kindle (there will be a 15 cent fee to do so unless you use the WiFi option of your Kindle).
Before you can email items to your Kindle you must authorize access by WebScription.net. You will need to login in to your Amazon Kindle account by clicking here and in “Your Kindle approved e-mail list” add the address @webscription.net
You only need to do this once. Then, back on the middle part of the webpage for the book, you will need to enter the address for your Kindle device here and click “Send” and you should be good to go.
