Oh hey!

It looks like the Suvudu Free Library, which is apparently associated with Random House in some fashion, has put the first novel of John Birmingham's Axis of Time trilogy, Weapons of Choice, up for free download (scroll down on the Free Library page). Birmingham's an interesting author -- he's an Australian whose main area of work was showbiz detective novels with titles like He Died With A Falafel In His Hand, but in recent years he's built up an impressive side line in crazy fun technothrillers. His books start out with some surreal event (in the Axis of Time books, it's a science experiment gone wrong that throws a near-future naval task force back into the Battle of Midway in World War II) and then remorselessly play out the results, but with a focus on the characters caught up in these events. If that seems like the sort of thing you might like, you really now have no excuse not to check Birmingham out.
