If you’re a member of this year’s World Science Fiction Convention in Denver, electronic copies (as RTF files, which are readable by almost all word processors) of four of the five best-novel Hugo Award finalists are yours for the asking. See John Scalzi’s blog for the details (and many thanks to John for handling distribution!).

Included in the bundle are Ian McDonald’s Brasyl, Robert J. Sawyer’s Rollback, John Scalzi’s The Last Colony, and (if you live in the United States) Charles Stross’s Halting State.

(The publisher of the fifth finalist, Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, declined to participate in this giveaway.)

And let me publicly say what a stand-up, terrific guy John Scalzi is. He didn’t have to organize this; he didn’t need to make his massively popular web platform available to anyone but himself. But he’s a true gentleman. THANK YOU, JOHN!

(Thanks, too, in my case, to my publisher, Tor Books, which controls the electronic rights to Rollback and authorized the use of the book in this program.)
