Tobias Buckell, fellow SFNovelists member, has just posted the first third of his third published novel, Sly Mongoose, on his website. (His third website? Dunno.)
You can find the first third of books one and two at the same location.
Speaking of SFNovelists, if you'd like to check out regular writing-related posts by published authors, you'll find the group blog here.
