For purposes of SF vitality, and as a kind of promotional move, I’ve decided to put a full copy of my Complete Stories online as a free HTML page. This isn’t a Creative Commons release, it’s a free sample. As before, Complete Stories is Copyright © 2012 Rudy Rucker as a volume, and the individual stories are copyrighted to their authors. If you like what you see, you can buy an ebook or a print version of Complete Stories via the links at Transreal Books.
Just for fun, I’ll post the covers of my earlier story collections, along with the Asimov’s SF magazine covers that feature images of my stories—three of the Asimov’s covers are of tales I co-authored with the redoubtable Bruce Sterling, and one shows a cover of a surfing tale I wrote with Marc Laidlaw.
