A Redtail's Dream - Lushly illustrated webcomic based on Finnish mythology about a boy and his shapeshifting dog. Appropriately snowy! It's complete, too, so you can read it from beginning to ending.
Sauerkraut Station - A science fiction novella about a girl who lives on a space station, the boy traveler who comes through, and the events that they endure. Along with sauerkraut recipes and what it means to make a difference.
The Conversation - "The Conversation is a collaboration between editors and academics to provide informed news analysis and commentary that’s free to read and republish." An intellectual friend sent this to me and I promptly started screaming, "Where has this been all my life?"
The Blue Castle - Escape into this adult novel from L.M. Montgomery (you may know her better as the author of Anne of Green Gables). Bobbed hair! Disreputable fellas in jalopies! Unwed mothers! Heavens to Murgatroyd!
Books, Free or Worth It - I recommend more free online long reads here. Victorian scenery-chewing and Edwardian South Seas adventures await.
