  • Archive of Our Own, one of my favorite sources of fan fiction
  •, another excellent source of new material

Merchandise Sites

  • CafePress (wide variety & easy to post your own, but limited to certain fandoms that have agreements with the site)
  • Etsy (not necessarily licensed, but often very creative)
  • Society6 (highest-quality artwork I’ve found on any of these sites)
  • Zazzle (also a wide variety)

Sources of New Books & eBooks

  • catalogs the free offerings from Amazon and B&N for Kindle and Nook respectively
  • Kindle Buffet has a daily listing of free or discounted Kindle books
  • ManyBooks has some free and some discounted eBooks
  • Open Library has eBooks you can borrow for a fixed period of time
  • Overdrive lets you check out digital books and audiobooks through your local public library
  • Project Gutenberg has free digital versions of classic books whose copyright has lapsed
  • You can also sometimes find temporarily free eBooks on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Books, and Apple iBooks. These are usually free for a short time as a promo, but if you “purchase” them for $0 when they’re free, you own them permanently the same as if you’d paid for them. Just search “free Kindle books” or “free e-books” or “free books” in whichever site you prefer to see what’s available today.
  • You can subscribe to email newsletters that list discounted and occasionally free books at,, and
  • If you own a Kindle and are an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow one book per month from Amazon’s Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
