Directory of Free Science Fiction With Biology

You may have noticed a slight change to the Biology in Science Fiction blog's appearance. The change isn't merely cosmetic - I finally launched a project I've been fiddling with for quite a while.

One of the wonders of the internet is the abundance of quality fiction you can read (or listen to) for absolutely free. I've been collecting free fiction links as I run across them in a list, which has gotten less and less useful as the list has grown. My original plan was to clean up and organize the list for my own use (removing all those dead SciFiction links, alas), but as I got down to sorting, I realized that other people might be interested in what I was putting together. Add to that the fact that there are more free stories released each month than I could possibly blog about and the solution was obvious: make a web site with the information!

Of course it turned into a bigger project than I expected, but I think it's finally ready to share:

I'm still tweaking the formatting and the categories and I have a long list of links that are yet to be added, but I'm hoping that some of you will take a look and let me know if the layout is confusing or anything is broken or missing.

You can subscribe to the site's RSS feed to keep on top of the latest additions:

You can rate the stories, leave a comment or send me a suggestion or correction.

I hope you find the database useful and interesting!



  1. Good and Great Work Peggy,Thanks!

  2. Thanks for sharing it with us. I am looking forward for more on your ideas.

  3. Looks great! clean, professional, organized.

  4. This is a terrific idea. I love finding niche directories like this. I hadn't thought of sci fi from this angle before. (which is peculiar when I think about it since a lot of my own writing has a, sort of, biological component.)


  5. I hope it helps you guys find some entertaining stories to read :)
