Ten Things Online for Free

1. Free e-Books page at Fictionwise.com -- 9/11 report, Jules Verne, Frankenstein in mp3, and some SF award desperados.

3. Mayang's Free Textures version 10 -- 1750 interesting texture images; daily max on downloads is 30.

5. For you emoticon addicts, free stylish emoticons.

6. Dowload audio (mp3) versions of the Bible and other inspirational audio books -- several languages, plus you can listen online versus downloading.

7. Three free books by author Holly Lisle: Fire in the Mist, Sympathy for the Devil, and Mugging the Muse. The first two are wonderful novels, the third is a terrific e-book on writing.

8. Housestyle is "a free style analysis tool that checks your documents against a range of individual house styles, helps convert documents from American to British spelling (and vice versa), support inclusive language (e.g. with regard to disability, ethnicity, gender and religion), and harmonise preferred spellings." (Not sure about this one, but if it does what it says it can it would be a good addition to your toolbox.)

10. Make a custom map of the world at Planiglobe.com.

    About the free books:

    The two novels she gives away are part of the Baen Free Library where you can get many more free books.

    This is not obvious if you follow the link from hollylisle.com so I thought I'd mention it. The library's main URL is:
