Utopia Downloads

Posted by Nick Wells

Our new publication Dystopia Utopia Short Stories includes a wide range of original stories to establish the breadth and depth of inspiration for modern sf, fantasy and YA fiction. Although our fabulous series of Gothic Fiction titles focuses on short stories, we included a few chapters of essential, early Utopian novels from Samuel Butler, William Morris, Mary Shelley, Richard Jefferies and Edward Bellamy. So here are the full texts, unabridged, available for you to download, as free PDFs.

You can read them on desktop computers, iPads, Kindles, Samsung Notepads, iPhones and any other device you can view and save PDFs.

If you like them, please let us know on our Facebook pages, or on Twitter. Please leave any comments below.

Many thanks

The team at Flame Tree.
