THIS MESSAGE HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE MINIONS OF FEVRE RIVER

Good News New Yorkers, last week our friends over at Penguin Random House in conjunction with NYC Subway Transit Wireless rolled out a new program to help ease boredom during your commute.

And here it is, a shiny new link to SUBWAY READS

On Sunday, Subway Reads started delivering novellas, short stories or excerpts from full-length books to passengers’ cellphones or tablets.

The idea is for riders to download a short story or a chapter and read it on the train. Subway Reads will even let riders choose what to read based on how long they will be on the subway — a 10-page selection for a 10-minute ride, a 20-page selection for a 20-minute excursion, a 30-page selection for a 30-minute trip. Delays not included.

And one of the top stories available now to read is GRRM'S chilling horror tale SANDKINGS.



And here is the LINK leading to the Free Transit Wireless Wifi station map for availability in your area.

Happy Reading!

What a great idea, and what a great way to introduce new readers to books they might not normally come across. In this information age a good grasp of reading is so important. I remember the first time I read Sand Kings. Phenomenal.

Goodness. I didn't realize he wrote that. It's one of my favorites. I watched the teleplay as a child. Congrats Subway Reads and grrm

Not a New Yorker
But I read "Sandkings" when it first appeared in Omni, back when the world was green and I was barely an adolescent. And I still remember being absolutely creeped out by that story, even if the details have faded.

Since I can't take the subway, guess I'll have to find a copy of it somewhere.

I love/hate that terrifying story! I've been keeping an eye out for it ever since i read it in a collection i got from the library years ago. Maybe this means it will be republished in a way non-New Yorkers can easily find it in the future. Yay!/*shudder*!

Joining the minions
Congratulations for this incredible idea!
I love Sandkings, as it is, apart from a wonderful work, also one of the earliest part of my collection of George R.R. Martin's works!
I was wondering, would it be possible to join the team of the minions of Fevre River??
Thanks,

Matteo

Sandkings
Wow! I recall watching (more than once, as it is one of my fav episodes) as the first episode of The Outer Limits.
Every time I tell people about Outer limits, I always reference the SandKings episode.
