Great SciFi and Fantasy from Lightspeed, Or How We Added George RR Martin to the Collection

We just landed George R.R. Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula K. Le Guin, Neil Gaiman, Cory Doctorow, and Orson Scott Card!

No, we didn’t add Game of Thrones, or Ender’s Game, or American Gods. But thanks to Lightspeed and its editor John Joseph Adams, we can now say we have amazing short stories, novellas, and interviews from all these timeless SciFi and Fantasy authors.

In our promise to deliver libraries the best ebooks from indie authors and publishers, we are proud to be adding such incredible content that pays homage to classic SciFi collections. If you have a patron looking to dive deep into new SciFi or Fantasy worlds, then Lightspeed is a great place to have them start. Whether it’s to read classic reprints from the likes of George R.R. Martin, or discover new and emerging authors, they’re sure to find something they love in these pages.

And we have every Lightspeed ever produced, with a new edition uploaded each month, all available to purchase on a Forever License - meaning you never have to re-buy or re-license the ebooks you purchase. Your library effectively owns them forever.

In addition to great reprints from some of the biggest names in SciFi and Fantasy, Lightspeed is also filled with original content, like the outstandingly named “The Cross-Time Accountants Fail To Kill Hitler Because Chuck Berry Does The Twist” from author C.C. Finlay, along with numerous Hugo Award Winners and Nominees.

From Lightspeed’s editor and bestselling anthologist John Joseph Adams:

Every month Lightspeed brings you a mix of originals and reprints, and features a variety of authors—from the bestsellers and award-winners you already know to the best new voices you haven’t heard of yet.

In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF—and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales. No subject is off-limits, and we encourage our writers to take chances with their fiction and push the envelope.

When you read Lightspeed, it is our hope that you’ll see where science fiction and fantasy comes from, where it is now, and where it’s going.


We’re proud to be adding such great content to our curated collection
