Brooklyn-based bookstore Singularity & Co is resurrecting vintage science fiction titles by tracking down their copyright holders and getting permission to make them available in DRM-free PDF, Epub and Moni format. Each month, the store, together with the community, selects one out-of-print or unavailable novel and publishes it online and on all the major digital book platforms for little or no cost. Subscribers can choose either a one-year membership for $29.99 or a lifetime membership for $129.99, which offers access to every book they save.

Singularity & Co was founded earlier this year after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign and praise from authors including Neil Gaiman. The bookstore has also republished two classic novels in print format (A Plunge Into Space by Robert Cromie and The Torch by Jack Bechdolt) and will soon be releasing a third (Mr Stranger’s Sealed Packet by Hugh MacColl). Wired reports that the bookstore is thinking of branching out further by offering new sci-fi books, opening an e-store with cover art-inspired merchandise, and reviving vintage titles from a different genre.
