Hi All,

I got this link from another source for some free short story downloads: -

http://www.bmw-audiobooks.com/

I haven't had time to research what kind of writing all four authors write, but the last of the four is Karin Slaughter.

Hope you like them!

According to http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk

Don Winslow has written numerous books, some of which are classified as "erotic fiction".

Simon Kernin is a British author, born in 1966 and has 5 novels and an omnibus edition (of his first two novels) to his name.

There is no entry for James Flint.

James Flint is a British novelist. Born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1968 he did a journalistic apprenticeship on the Times of India in New Delhi before studying philosophy and psychology at Wadham College, Oxford. On graduating he spent a year in New York City studying jazz theory and technique, returning to the UK to take an MA in Philosophy and Literature at the University of Warwick.

In 1994 he moved to London, where he worked as a section editor for Wired UK and science editor of the technology and art periodical Mute. Since then he has written features and reviews for many national newspapers and magazines, including the Guardian, the Observer, the Daily Telegraph, Time Out and Arena.

Flint is the author of the novels Habitus (1998: Fourth Estate, UK; St. Martin’s Press, US; Marco Tropea, Italy; Au Diable Vauvert, France; Gallimard, France); 52 Ways to Magic America (2002: Fourth Estate, UK; Marco Tropea, Italy), which won the Amazon.co.uk Bursary Award for the year 2000; and The Book of Ash (2004: Viking, UK; 2006: Au Diable Vauvert, France; Marco Tropea, Italy), winner of a 2003 Arts Council Writers’ Award. He has also published a short story collection Soft Apocalypse – Twelve Tales from the Turn of the Millennium (2004: Au Diable Vauvert). His short fiction has appeared in collections published by Penguin Books, the New English Library and the ICA. When it was published in France in 1992, Habitus was judged as in the top five foreign novels of that year's Rentrée Literaire. Time Out called it "probably the best British fiction début of the last five years".

In 2002 one of Flint's stories (The Nuclear Train) was filmed for Channel 4 by the director Dan Saul. Flint also scripted the film installation Little Earth (http://www.londonfieldworks.com/little/main.html).
