You can now read past editions of the Hardball Times Annual for free. A PDF file of the 2004 Annual is available on our FTP site, and the 2007 and 2008 editions are available at Wowio. Here’s the link to the 2007 book, and here’s the link for 2008. We’re working on the 2006.
And, if you like those, purchase the 2009 Annual in actual print form. It won’t be available for free until next year.
