Soulmates by Mike Resnick, prolific Hugo & Nebula Award-winning author, & Australian author Lezli Robyn is their collection of science fiction & fantasy shorts, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Phoenix Pick Press.
This is their featured Free Book of the Month selection for July, and the title story was voted to 2nd place for Asimov’s Reader’s Choice Award for Best Novelette.
These stories were written together in collaboration and published in assorted anthologies and magazines, alongside a bonus solo story from each author.
Offered worldwide through July, available DRM-free directly from the publisher.
Free for a limited time until the end of July, available worldwide @ the publisher’s dedicated promo page (DRM-free ePub & Mobi available worldwide, requires valid email address; follow the instructions on the page to reset the price in the cart to $0.00 during checkout)
The tie-in offer is for a bundle of issues #1-3 of Galaxy’s Edge magazine which is edited by Resnick for just $3.99, with each issue containing a mix of new stories and reprints by up-and-coming and well-known authors, plus portions of a novel serialization and reviews. IIRC, this tie-in deal has previously been offered with another BOTM or as part of a special sale in the past, so you might already have it, but it’s otherwise a good deal.
Multiple award-winning authors, Mike Resnick and Lezli Robyn, get to the heart of the matter in Soulmates, which showcases all the words they have penned together over their years as collaborators (with a bonus solo piece by each). Whether a robot, alien, some kind of supernatural being or human, rising above our prejudices and ignorance allows us to make emotional connections that can have a profound effect on our lives.
Each of these stories examine a facet of the simple, yet incredibly complex, concept of companionship. They will make you laugh; will make you cry…but most importantly they will make you look at the very basic notion of soul-mates in a different light.
