Fiction to Get You Through Your Workday

With summer nearly over, you might be less motivated than usual to trudge through another day at the office. Thankfully Daniel Orozco is here to help. Work in Progress readers will likely remember his short story “Orientation” from May. Now you can read that story and three others about life on the job (be it bridge repair, the police beat, or temp work).

“Orientation,” “The Bridge,” “Officers Weep,” and “Temporary Stories” are now available as free ebooks for a limited time. Check with your favorite ebook retailer to download.

And if you get caught reading short stories at your desk, Kobo and Blackberry are offering a chance to win $500 in free coffee for your office—that should smooth things over.
