If you don’t know about Free E Day, you should check out the directory here: http://freeeday.wordpress.com/free-e-day-directory/free-words/
It’s a list of people who will be giving online literature, art and music away FREE on December 1.
But more specifically, I’d like to direct you to my contribution to the Free E Day project, the download of my eBook version of “Engines of Desire”. This is not an ordinary ebook by any means. It’s an exe file that opens up something more like a website to display the poems and videos. I’m very excited about this sort of presentation, as is Adoro Books, who used the same format for my book Flesh Wounds.
“Engines of Desire” is a revival my collection from the seventies, praised by people like Alan Ginsberg and Robert Bly and a major cult seller at the time. But this new format really lights the work up, and includes lots of recent poems and video poems.
Actually, “Engines” is available for free NOW, at this link. ONLY WORKS ON WINDOWS
Best bet is to right click the link then save it to your computer http://adorobooks.com/freeday/EnginesOfDesire.exe

I’d also like to draw your attention to free work (also available immediately) by Adoro author Grayson Moran. His “Sky Seeds” is a really nice SF tale, but told in contemporary times, most of the characters being young Mexicans who find out what the history of Earth is really about and use hyperspace travel to smuggle to other planets and head off a universe-wide conflict.
It’s a pdf document that reads on any computer with Adobe or other pdf reader.
Again, best to right click and save, then open from your hard drive: http://adorobooks.com/freeday/SkySeeds.pdf
Also from Adoro Books
And last, but absolutely not least, you can download a free copy of “Mayan Calendar Girls”. These locos inspired Adoro to put books out on exe and their novel, a pretty wild item anyway—sort of a “Hot Hitchhiker’s Guide To 2012 Gone Wild On the Mayan Riviera”—utilizes the format incredibly well. You’ve never read anything quite like this, with words popping up meaning and satirical pictures, great artwork, and various different sequences to read through the book. It’s a book that’s at once funny, sexy, eductational, thought provoking, and exasperating.
