Re: Free book downloads

I noticed that my previous attempt to post this link failed to label it properly:

Baen Free Library

And if you like the old stuff:

Astounding Stories of Super-Science

(In the May 1930 issue you'll find a letter to the editor from Forrest J. Ackerman, who would have been fourteen at the time. (For those who don't know who he was, he was the first person in history to wear a costume to a science fiction convention.)

The science classics to catch up on
If you’ve got time on your hands, why not catch up on some of the science classics you’ve always intended to read (or pretended to have read).

Galileo Galilei’s Sidereus nuncius (The Celestial Messenger) was the first telescopic survey of the sky, published 400 years ago. Historian John Heilbron reflects on the little book that changed everything.

Self-taught mathematician Mary Fairfax Somerville first achieved an overview of scientific achievement — and arguably launched popular science as a genre. Science writer Richard Holmes enjoys her brilliant and original 1834 book, On the Connexion of the Physical Sciences.

Alfred Russel Wallace's masterpiece of biogeography, The Malay Archipelago, takes readers on a joyride through the vast chain of islands stretching eastward from Sumatra. Science writer David Quammen enjoys “a wondrous book of travel and adventure that wears its deeper significance lightly”.

Science writer Philip Ball reviews the surprising insight and imagination of John Dalton’s New System of Chemical Philosophy: “one of those foundational books that doesn't say what you might think it should”.
