The Earth Rages. Humanity is hunted.
In the Seven Realms of Man, reality is an afterthought. There is no disease, poverty, religion or war.

Outside of the Seven Realms, the world has become Wilderness, where every living creature hunts for human blood. It is a land of madness, a place where the Earth itself Rages for the extinction of humanity. From the Wilderness three strangers will be changed forever, and the world with them.
Harley Nearwater begins his journey from the Wilderness to the Seven Realms. He seeks only the company of others for a time, to find respite from the harshness of a world he no longer recognizes. Death follows him.
Quinlan Bowden searches for his wife, and knows to find her he must leave behind the security of the Seven Realms.

Brinna Wilde dreams of a place beyond the Wilderness, the only world she has ever known, where the last of the faithful wait for Judgment Day. Her dreams lead her to the Seven Realms, where the gifts of the greatest civilization of man might guide her toward redemption.

The end of everything is about to begin.

Fate brought Amanda and Vicki together – or did it? Society has collapsed, perhaps vanished, in the aftermath of a devastating outbreak. The two women survive after travelling to a remote farmhouse in southern Canada.
This is no conventional post-apocalyptic tale – there are no zombies, gunfights, action sequences, heroes, or villains. As co-operation and compromise extend to love and romance, Amanda and Vicki come to question the values and beliefs of the past, and their relevance in their new micro society.
‘Was That the Apocalypse?’ is a simple story of the relationship between two very different women. Mostly gentle in tone and content, it is at times, funny, sad, sexy, confronting, and irreverent.

Waters unveils the neuron chip to a raving crowd, but the public at large is frightened and unreceptive to the technology.
Amori’s rebellious daughter Katie blames him for not being able to save her mother.
Torn between his duties as a scientist and father, both his home and work life put him under immense stress.
Someone close to Amori betrays him, and his life unravels.
The neuron chip slips out of Amori’s grasp, and into the hands of a nefarious conman with aspirations of world domination.
Engrossing, entertaining, and thought-provoking, Chippies is a fast-paced science fiction story you won’t be able to put down.

Their competitor, Cosmoservice, uses arks, a species native to space that no one knows the origin of, but have the ability to jump through space time at will — and Stelomm wants to compete. There are rumors developing of a transphase, a process that allows matter to be here and then there, instantaneously and the emergence of psidroids.
Fiordfar may hold the key. Immediately after reaching the rank of reachfar, he resigns his service and wanders off to find the answer to the transphase and the secrets of the drakron. He will encounter many and all are affected by him in ways that change their lives, intertwining them forevermore. One of them may finally answer the mystery: what is the purpose of psidroids?

Inquiring memes want to know: Was “Satisfaction” the first-ever punk-rock song? (Can we find an objective, measurable, scientific way to answer this question?)
And: In what state of mind were the Stones, when they wrote this song? (Were they stoned? Were they drunk? Were they exceedingly hung over?)
Furthermore: Are all good songwriters necessarily competent psychologists, while only a small subset of psychologists might be considered competent songwriters?
On a surprisingly related note: Is it true that over their developmental lifespan, women accumulate ever more garments and footwear until they require offsite storage, while a man prefers to wear the same article of clothing over and over and over again, until it crumbles into dust?
And finally: Is time travel a thing of the past? Or is time travel off-patent, and available and waiting for you to use anytime between two and three o’clock GMT, yesterday afternoon?
To fulfill your need to know – or to assuage your feelings of guilt, for needing to know – you absolutely must read Part 7 of the reality-bending e-book series, Pop Psychology From Abba to Zappa, “Mick & Keith’s Excellent Therapy Session: I Can’t Get No Satisfaction, But… Why Not?”
An enhanced understanding and appreciation of many things, including the intricacies of the songwriting process; how to tell pop from punk; The Ramones vs. The Stones vs. The Sex Pistols; the short-lived "high" of material world self-indulgence vs. lasting, deep & meaningful gratification; the surprising and ominous legal hazards of time travel; and the amazing true story of The Rolling Stones' greatest hit – all of this, and more, is just a click away!

Zlatcov listened to Schmeltzer’s’ transmissions and gritted her teeth. She slammed the throttles forward, pressing her into the seat, not caring about the damaged engine. The shuttle passed through the exhaust of the frigates engines, coming up on the blind side. Her view screen melted and crackled, but held.
Up and over the top, slamming her against the straps holding her in the seat. This elicited excited shouts and yells from the assault bay. She spun the shuttle around and applied full thrusters, bringing them to a dead stop relative to the ship, two meters above the deck. The ramp slammed down and six figures dashed out.
“BLOW IT, HOLMES!” yelled Knight. The young apprentice demo man placed a cratering charge against the windows over the ship’s Bridge and they scrambled away from it. Before he stepped away, he could see the shocked expression through the windows of the French Captain and his bridge crew. Holding up his hand, counting down with his fingers. At two, every man in the squad dialed up the magnetic lock on their boots, holding them fast to the hull. At one, the charge erupted in a blinding flash, shattering the plastisteel armored windows. Air rushed out, followed by several bodies wearing the sky blue of the French Navy. They milled around for a few seconds as they flew out into space, then fell still, dying quickly from decompression.
Bjorn Stenger grabbed the still hot, shattered window edges and swung himself into the Bridge, into the howling airstream. His right arm erupted, firing without discrimination at whatever figure was still moving in the disappearing air. Behind him the rest of the team swung in before metal shutters slammed downward, closing off the breech.
“Shupe, get the engine controls. Shut this sonofabitch down. Cahr, Orr, you HOLD that passageway!” said Knight, pointing to an access way off to one side. “Do not let anyone through. Tank, main corridor, start clearing it. Yee, pull anything you can of Intel off their hard drive. Holmes, start placing demo charges at all stations, two minutes.”
Yee started banging on keyboards through his gloved fingers. “Just because I’m a frigging Asian doesn’t mean I know computers, you know.”
Knight ignored his grumbling, stepping over to the fire control panel and shoving aside the dead body there. He programmed an overload into the main 2cm battery, charging it but giving it no firing coordinates.
A flurry of shots sparked off a bulkhead, soundless in the airless compartment, and Tank came bounding back onto the Bridge. He spun, fired, and then fell heavily backward as something crashed into his suit and then exploded with a sharp CRACK. A shaped charge round, used to penetrate armor, had caught him in the leg, shattering it. He sat back up and fired three grenades down the hallway, then started cursing, dragging himself out of the line of fire.
“Time to go, Gentlemen,” said Knight, and they retreated back towards the metal shuttered windows where they had originally come in. Orr and Cahr fired even, measured shots designed to keep their opponent’s heads down, sending ricochets around corners, while Yee and Shupe half hauled, half dragged the Heavy Suit soldier to the window.
“Breaching! FIRE IN THE HOLE!” yelled Holmes, and another charge shattered and bent the steel shutters. They remained in place though, blocking their exit.

Drinking and flying is a bad combination. Stephan Forks learns this the hard way when he rams another ship in spite of the vastness of space. A moment later, a strange woman stands on his bridge, looking around with a frown. She's clearly a figment of his imagination. Nothing in his colorful past of smuggling and smaller crimes prepared him for people appearing out of nowhere.
Maria Callaway has carried more names and appearances than she can keep track of, and she's bored beyond belief. When she runs into Stephan, he seems to be an amusing pastime. He's interesting, disorganized, pursued by pirates, and handsome. A little too handsome, actually. Maybe she should leave?
Neither of them can foresee the chain of events set in action from their meeting. Adventure and danger go hand in hand during the upcoming days, and the collision resonates not only through their own lives, but changes the destiny of the world as they know it.
"Touch of the Goddess" is the first book in a series of three, mixing mythology, science fiction, and romance.

Gwyn leads her comrades, ex-Militarian Adrik, and childhood friend, Rodrigo, in a high-stakes treasure hunt on a forbidden planet.
If successful, she will be the only smuggler in the quadrant with access to the ancient treasures of the Louvre, and an endless supply of contraband. If she fails, the Militarian will send her and Adrik back to the prison planet they escaped from.
Can Gwyn steal some of the greatest art in the galaxy from a planet locked down by the Militarian?
Or, will she find herself locked away, while the priceless artifacts in the Louvre call her name?
Hunted: A Pleiades Adventure

Will the government destroy her?

You see, the eight-member crew of the Cepheus are all Rehabs which is slang for someone serving a life sentence who, although they cannot go free, have been deemed rehabilitated.
The entire crew of ex-cons are woken after fifty-nine years of cryogenic sleep only to discover that the derelict ship USS Ptolemy is located further out in the system than originally expected. The ship is clearly powered down and tumbling aimlessly, but the moment that the Cepheus decides to hail the ship, they get a reply from a surviving member of the original crew. Yet after over 300 years now, such a thing would be entirely impossible.
A boarding party is sent to the Ptolemy where they quickly discover that someone somehow is definitely still alive on that ship. And even more curious than that impossibility, it also becomes apparent that someone has spent a lot of time modifying the machinery and devices on that ship, bringing forth advances that don’t even exist aboard the Cepheus. But none of this answers the biggest question of all: where are the four missing shuttle craft and where are all the other members of the 100+ crew?

by Ani Gonzalez
$0.00, 133 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (12 reviews), #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Cozy
Three deliciously spooky (and hilariously funny) mystery stories in a little shop that wasn't there yesterday.
The Mystery of the Halloween Mask
Halloween is usually a blast in Banshee Creek, Virginia, also known as The Most Haunted Town in the USA, but not for Magical Mystery Shoppe owner, Dora Pendragon. The immortal witch is tasked—or, to be more accurate, cursed—with guarding dangerous and mysterious objects in her dimension-hopping store. This is, to put it mildly, not the most fun way for a witch to spend eternity, and when a cursed mask disappears from the shop on Halloween night Dora is caught in a race against time. She has to solve the mystery behind the curse, find the mask, and return it to the shop before its bloody legacy exacts a terrible price.
The Mystery of the Christmas Doll
Christmas in Banshee Creek usually means cold weather, hot chocolate, and lots of toys. But when a haunted doll with a bloody past arrives in the Magical Curiosity Shoppe, Dora Pendragon suspects that the innocent-looking toy is determined to find a new owner. Will Dora solve the mystery behind the doll before it finds a new victim?
The Mystery of the Love Potion
It's Valentine's Day in the Most Haunted Town in the USA. February is a slow month for Banshee Creek, but not for Dora Pendragon. The Magical Curiosity Shoppe seems to be searching for a new item, and it's not the only one. A mysterious stranger is also looking for a delicate glass bottle with curious markings and powerful magical contents. Should Dora give up the precious liquid, or should she finally confront the eldritch force that holds her prisoner, once and for all?

He enjoyed chili dogs, video games, and hanging out at the mall with his friends, but all that changed on a cold night in November when his young life was suddenly cut short. Death gripped his soul tightly and would have succeeded in delivering him to his afterlife if it wasn't for a sympathetic vampire who happened upon the teen's body.

| The Stealer of Memories|

$0.00, 157 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #744 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction
It has happened to all of us, we're talking with our brother of a childhood memory and suddenly he says, but you didn't do that, I did. And that seems normal. But, what do we remember when we remember? Scientific studies show that in less than twenty-four hours we have already changed the memory of what has happened to us. Perhaps our memories are not always completely ours, only partially ours, partly they are what others who were in the same place have told us, and partly perhaps they are memories of others that with time are infiltrated in our brain. The narrator of "El Ladrón de Memorias" does not steal memories, but he feels like a thief, because he is drawn to pulling at some moments other people's most intimate memories, only to realize that he can no longer differentiate his memories from the others. “The Stealer of Memories” is an autobiography of the entire world.
"Rarely have I had the opportunity to read a book on ebook format with the characteristics of "The Stealer of Memories". Mois Benarroch has the strange particularity of talking about anything and has a way of making you unable to stop reading. I have compiled many fragments of his book because they seemed interesting, intuitive and I think I almost believe that in fact the author is a memory thief:
"…But there is one that doesn't go away. And it is that every text is autobiographical. Each character is the author. Nothing original in that. I know. But I'm not saying that every text is based on the life of the writer. Just the opposite. It is based on the not-life of the writer. The wife who appears in the text of a male writer is not the writer's wife, and vice versa, the homosexual will be the one who was not, the rich one is the rich one that the writer longs to be, if he is poor. The writer defines himself by what he cannot be. What he cannot be is not infinite. One cannot not-be just anybody. He can only be characters or people he is able to imagine…"

| Gestation (Project Chrysalis Book 1)|
by John Gold
$0.00, 278 pages, 4.1 out of 5.0 (32 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > World Literature > Russian
To face Death itself, to hide from deadly guards, to conduct dark rituals and to use forbidden death magic? Being sent to Hell is definitely not what 12-year-old Anji would have ever expected from a government orphanage program.
Chrysalis — the project of the century. It is a hyper-realistic fantasy RPG game, set in the Middle Ages. Leveling up, distributing attribute points, and choosing your way of life are only a few ways the players play the game. Chrysalis is the perfect virtual space where every orphan under the care of the government is placed in an in-game family to receive all the love and care of parents they so desperately need. This project helps kids socialize and mold them into the adults of the future. They are in charge of how they grow up in the virtual space, which was built to advance society.
But something went seriously wrong for Anji.
He has lost everything that he had been so happy to finally receive. Now, instead of a loving mama and strict but generous father, he has bloodthirsty demons and flesh-eating worms. Instead of fishing and baking lessons, he has to perform bloody rituals to survive the nine circles of Hell. Instead of the dreams of a happy childhood, his wounded child’s soul suffers demonification.
Betrayed, for the sake of someone else's master plan, he appeared in the most hopeless place of Chrysalis. It is full of ash, despair and… possibilities? Sagie, Anji’s in-game username, fueled by homesickness and revenge, will go through the Hell to face what is hidden in the darkest corners. The road will be long and difficult, but those who can, do.
Once, long ago, the first wave of Wanderers appeared in the world of Chrysalis. They had proved themselves by killing the ancient gods. Now it is time for the second wave of Wanderers and for new young gods, dreaming about a wide-scaled and deadly war. The beta-test is now open to people. While they are “playing” in Chrysalis, they have no idea about the truth behind the Project.
Project Chrysalis: Book one: Gestation is the first of four books of a brand new LitRPG series. This is a story of a battle for your dreams. It is full of turns, twists, riddles, and revelations; it is a story of… Oh, sorry. No spoilers today.
The story of Sagie has just begun.
But first, one line of advice: do not believe your own eyes.
| Becoming the Dragon (The Dragon Inside Book 1)|
by Alex Sapegin
$0.00, 178 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (120 reviews),
From now on he’s got two hearts beating in his scale-clad chest, and two mighty wings on his back. In the faraway planet of two moons, he was born again as a dragon… but would it make him any less human?
The Dragon Inside, a bestselling series by Alex Sapegin, is comprised of a total of five books:
– Becoming the Dragon
– Wings on my Back
– A Cruel Tale
– Crown of Horns
- Home at Last
It is a saga of portal traveling, bodily transformations, reincarnation and epic combat, but first and foremost a story of discovering and reclaiming one’s true self.
Having unwittingly stumbled into the site of a scientific experiment, Andy gets teleported to the faraway planet of Ilanta, inhabited by both human and supernatural beings. In this new world, he will encounter all kinds of exciting adventures and grim challenges, mastering his newly developed magic skills, befriending orcs, elves, and dragons, fighting the good fight, and eventually continuing on his quest for justice reincarnated as a dragon.
It was obvious right from the get-go that destiny has something unique in store for Andy Kerimov, a small-town teenager who survives a direct strike from lightning which leaves him with immunity to electronic devices and extraordinary magic powers just waiting to be released.
Teleported to the fairytale world of Ilanta, Andy gets no cordial welcome: he is captured, chained up and sold into slavery — but not before he accidentally activates an ancient artifact and sets Karegar the Dragon free, who would later become his mentor and foster father. When fatally wounded, Andy chooses to undergo an ancient ritual to be reborn as a dragon, a.k.a. a Master of Heaven.
He will have to go a long way before settling into his new body and mastering his newly acquired powers. On his way, he will make loyal friends and bitter enemies, going through fire and ice, defending the right and taking the weak under his wing. Little does he know that he is destined to play a central part in an epic conflict soon to break out where the future of the two planets, as well as his now-faraway homeland, would be at stake…

Vivarium is a dangerous planet. Its mystical landscape is teeming with blood-thirsty creatures. On Vivarium, even the most vicious killers have predators. It's a world of hunters and hunted. And that's why everyone wants so bad to go there.
After three and a half months asleep on a spaceliner, Fora is finally there--on Vivarium. Fora and her family are VIP guests at the wildlife park on the planet's rocky surface, so Fora gets access to any of the luxurious hotels and observation stations built in the middle of natural animal habitat. Fora's just glad to be there and see the incredible animals she's read so much about, but a few days into the trip, she knows something is terribly wrong.
The park is supposed to be safe--huge teams of wranglers and high tech facilities protect the thousands of visitors from predators like the miasmor and the bricklebarb. Even the park's most dangerous attraction, the Darca, can be viewed in safety under the right circumstances. Though, the massive flying creatures are elusive--Fora can only hope of seeing one up close.
One morning, Fora wanders off alone and runs into a wild darca. Instead of killing her instantly, the animal does something shocking, something magical, and Fora finds herself drawn to the ruthless killer.
With the help of Daymus, a strange wrangler boy who catches darca every day, Fora hunts for the truths behind the mysteries of Vivarium, even as she comes face to face with a hunter that will threaten the very structure of the world. A hunter that's been hiding for generations.

A classic high quality action-packed treasure quest thriller of a London detective agency searching for ancient lost treasure.
Private investigators of a detective agency search for lost treasure after the discovery of an ancient map on an old piece of parchment and tales of it leading to lost treasure.
The investigators are fanatical with hunting and discovering what is there and the lost treasure, and they explore what they can, in a remarkable detective adventure.
They find strange mind-bending ghostly energy formations, witnessed haunting the region, which they have never heard of, even after consulting the most advanced paranormal scientists, and one gains strange magical-like powers.
The riddles are almost unsolvable, and their investigations with the paranormal scientists lead them to use a new highly advanced technology to search deep beneath the site, and discover far more than they expected.
The source of the occurrences is found deep underground, where they discover one of the strangest ghostly energy formations encountered, hidden away for centuries, in alternating dormant states, trapped in reality, and discover the lost treasure of a queen.
Workmen constructing a new section of the London underground near London Bridge during the Second World War uncover a large underground cavity and a workman discovers an ancient map on a tattered piece of parchment inside, which he believes leads to lost treasure, and he hires the detective agency to search for it, before the railway company starts filling in the cavity to complete the railway line, and while they do they investigate sightings of ghostly formations and a killer Santa, and they bring in archaeologists to excavate the cavity and they find the remains of an underground Roman burial site.
Leading archeologists are brought in to excavate the site and discover why it is buried away there, so deep beneath the ground, and start digging up what they believe are unknown prehistoric creatures, but soon find they are far more, and they find strange unknown species of life forms, frozen in strange states, as though frozen in ice.
Scientists unsuccessfully scan below the ground, searching for what is below, but while using a new form of the scanning technology they uncover things that never showed up on the original scans, and realize something below is stopping them from seeing what is there.
Something strange is buried deep below, hundreds of feet below, at least thousands of years old, and a blurred image of it is detected, and after examinations of it they grasp its immense size.
Eventually a tunnel is located, of Roman origins, going straight down towards it, and where the treasure must be located!

Enjoy an adventure in Junk city with a colorful cast of characters led by none other than Johnny Mustache himself. Newly made partners Johnny and Kayla stumble upon a discovery that leads them down a rabbit hole unlike anything the agency has ever seen before! Be sure to catch this first installation into the Johnny Mustache series that sets the tone for all the wild adventures of the Mustache Marauders. Check below for a free sample!
“You do realize the eighties are over Johnny?” Kayla screamed over the sounds blaring from the speakers. Her ears throbbed from the volume as she gripped the wheel until her knuckles were white. Didn’t he realize how ridiculous he looked sitting there in his brown bomber jacket, aviator glasses, and what was left of his hair sticking out in cow licks. She reached over and spun the volume knob annoyed.
“Besides you weren’t even born until eighty six I doubt you even remember the eighties. I don’t get your obsession with all this crap.” She scoffed at him and turned to see his face nose to nose with hers. His bushy mustache almost touching her face. It always reminded her of two hairy caterpillars kissing.
“First and foremost Kayla Ann, never and I mean absolutely never under any circumstances do you touch the radio when Danger Zone is playing. Secondly the year I was born is irrelevant because the eighties live inside us all just like Johnny Mustache.” He pounded his finger on his chest and stroked his mustache.
“Did you just refer to yourself in the third person? Is that where we are now?” Kayla rolled her eyes and tried to tune him out.
“Johnny has grown too big for first person, he needs three now.” Still trying to ignore him she reached to the GPS and idly scrolled through. They were getting close to the lake and she was getting a little nervous. They had been partners for almost a year now. A year of these antics every day exactly like this and they weren’t just during calm moments like these either. No he liked to do the craziest stuff at the most inopportune time. Pulling her hair out seemed like a liable option most days, some days she had come all to close. Chief had assured her time and time again he was one of the best secret agents the country had to offer. All she had seen so far was an idiot, an overgrown man child that got dropped in her lap for babysitting duty.
Johnny reached over and turned the volume up and started the song over again.
“Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to get back in the zone. The Danger Zone.” Johnny reached up and flipped his collar. Nodding along to the song getting lost in his own little world. At least he wasn’t juggling knives in the car like last time. A small sigh escaped from her lips as she tried to relieve some of the tension in her knuckles. Just focus on the mission she told herself. This partnership was just a small chapter to a greater ending. She let her foot sit heavy on the gas pedal and opened the engine up. She loved the sound of an engine on the highway and this one she had fined tuned herself. The agency preferred company cars to be black and that suited her just fine. The inside had dark gray leather that could only been seen from inside the tinted windows. She looked over at the seat to admire it and smiled a bit. She really did love her car. She rubbed the leather on the passenger seat and panicked suddenly. Why was she able to touch the seat? Her head snapped to only see his legs hanging inside the car. Johnny had propped himself up outside the window and was holding his arms out like wings. She could hear him singing along at the top of his voice. She reached over and starting punching him in the leg repeatedly.
“Get inside the car right now!.” She grabbed the fabric of his blue jeans and yanked him inside forcefully. He fell through and plopped in his seat looking rather annoyed by her.

by Ingo Potsch
$0.00, 21 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #82 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > 30 minutes (12-21 pages) > Science Fiction & Fantasy
Captain Madog Rhuddlan was one of the earlier pirates of the Milky Way, and he belonged to the most successful galactic robbers ever. Coming early in the history of galactic piracy, he had little and few to learn from, and had to come up with his own stratagem, tactics, and methods. He proved to be so good in being bad that it was widely assumed that he had entered into a Deal with the Devil. This notion was also supported in legends extolling his fabulous richness and his great successes, which he obtained against all the odds. Madog Rhuddlan was apparently able to ignore risk and just go about his desires, while nothing bad would happen to him, and calamities would only affect his enemies. Even his death, it was claimed, might have been something very different from what the official history of the galaxy, as derived from her archives, tells us. But whatever may have truly occurred back then, and however large his treasure may have been, about which there are different stories, giving descriptions ranging from enormous to outright fantastic, it is certainly true that Captain Madog Rhuddlan was one of the most dangerous pirates of all times. Many others who followed in his footsteps – or at least tried to do that – learned from him, and what he had established in methods lasted for long; as did his life, which was surprisingly long for a pirate. During that comparatively long years of menacing the Milky Way, Madog Rhuddlan raided large numbers of spaceships and settlements, and always managed to get away from those who hunted him, even though the Milky Way's most famous pirate extinguisher of that time had been set upon his traces. Perhaps it was finally this threat, which induced him, as one legend has it, to feign his death, though others insist that finally the evil one took him, as it had been part of Rhuddlan's Deal with the Devil.

The book follows their first year in their new school, with an Alien as headmaster, and where they learn everything from Cosmic History through to how to fly a flying saucer, and comes to a shocking conclusion in a field trip to Mars where ancient secrets are uncovered.

The Earthians were horribly split up internally. But Kcid took a man's delight in inhabiting them.
The body of a man lay on the bed. He appeared to be sleeping, although an experienced finger would have found almost no pulse, and a practiced ear would have detected only the feeblest breathing. Life in the body of the prone figure was at a low ebb.
Slowly, seemingly out of the very head itself, a haze began to ooze — a gray, filmy, foggy vapor which grew thicker and thicker, spreading out until the man's face was totally obscured.
The haze assumed shape and even a kind of substance, and when it had formed into a long, oval mass, it began to float across the room.
It settled down in the seat of a large upholstered chair, almost as if it were trying, humanlike, to make itself comfortable.
After a moment the mass of gray vapor began to glow, first with a dull orange tint gradually brightening to red, then into purple and finally into a luminous green. Tiny points of light began to flash inside it, and then one sudden, stabbing beam leaped out of the glowing hazy stuff. It passed swiftly up through the ceiling and beyond into the sky, and continued out into the great empty reaches of space…

If reincarnation were fact, would you be guaranteed rebirth on the same planet?
The Department of the Afterlife on Aleya has a lengthy history of reincarnation errors, and for a 23-year-old waitress named Suzan, death didn’t go as expected. In fact, it went downright wrong; she found herself being redirected in a “go towards the light—no wait, actually not that light, go down the hall to the left and go to that one, past the fountain” scenario and ended up on planet Earth. Gilbert Chalk's new neighbor isn't exactly your average girl next door; she's from the universe next door.
Until the auditors of the afterlife correct their mistake, Suzan is left with nothing but time to find out what it means to be alive, to be dead, and to use a West Texas food truck as an interplanetary mobile phone. Gilbert discovers a bizarre connection to Suzan's home planet, but unfortunately Aleya isn’t the way she left it. How do you ever get back home when everything about “home” has changed? Do you really want to go back?

It’s 1892, the fourth and nastiest year of the Civil War. With war prices for some things going through the roof, there are some cargoes that are too tempting, tucked down in places too risky, and a ship captain has to weigh both if he wants to make a profit and stay afloat. Last I saw my parents, they were going to do the sugar run to Jamaica. Up in the cold North sugar cane simply doesn’t grow. You have to go where it’s warm and for us in the U.S., that means the Caribbean, which is unfortunately down next to the Confederate States of America and we have to sail right past Florida with its people doing their best to be unpleasant. I won’t kid you. It’s a dangerous run. Normally, they would have been back in port a week ago, but they’re overdue. Nothing to worry about yet – much.

CHICAGO, 2064: MANKIND CAN REWIND
Talon Avalon is a timecaster--one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV, the Tachyon Emission Visualizer, which records events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened.
With crime at an all-time low, Talon has little to do except give lectures to schoolkids--and obsess on his wife's profession as a licensed sex partner.
Then one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder. When Talon uses the TEV to view the crime, the identity of the killer is unmistakable--it's him, Talon Avalon.
Someone is taking timecasting to a whole new level and using it to frame Talon. And the only way he can prove his innocence is to go off the grid--which in 2064 is a very dangerous thing to do.
Time is NOT on his side.
Featuring all of the action, thrills, and humor of other Konrath books, but set in an outrageous never-before-seen future, the Timecaster series is ecopunk on super steroids. Add in healthy doses of sex, some characters from Konrath's previous books (Talon is Jack Daniels's grandson), and a lot of outrageous ideas about technology, society, and politics, and Timecaster is a book that will appeal to anyone who likes to be entertained, even if they don't dig on sci-fi.
If you are a more sensitive (or adventurous) reader, this handy scale rates specific categories from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) to give you some idea if this is your kind of book.

No one likes the idea of being labeled and put in a box--but what if you were the only one to be left out of all the boxes? Born without an assigned Identification, this is the reality that parentless Ambiguous19 finds himself in-- it's been almost a century since the Old World ended, and he's ineligible for work, marriage, legal status or even basic human rights. Dominion, as its citizens know it, follows a rigid caste system based on two identifying adjectives passed down from parents to their children. With one positive and one negative that's reinforced through education, in theory, no one's ego can be too inflated. There's no room for individuality. No such thing as art, or free thought. In Dominion, there's only compliance and the belief that nothing lies outside its Walls-- that this is what's left of mankind, and to preserve it takes absolute perfection.
It takes the fateful meeting of a bold infiltrator from the Outside to turn A19's world upside down, and to show him just how much of it is left to discover. She introduces him to the worlds and concepts hidden within long-destroyed novels, and teaches him how to take solace in the struggles in stories like 1984.
As he begins to see the benefits of being a clean slate, he stumbles into a full-blown revolution against his government, and with the help of his friends realizes just how much he has to lose by not standing up.

She just wants a normal life, but as a phase-shifter things are always complicated. Her friends each seem to hide a secret, but hers could get them all killed.
Dylan has a problem - she is only as solid as the light around her, and she doesn't know how she does it. Whether by instinct or desire, she seeks out the shadows and other dark places that let her disappear. It helped in her job as a Night Courier, delivering high-value black-market packages to unnamed people. It made her unstoppable, rare, and valuable. Turning to smoke or vapour would seem like a good thing when it happens in dark and dangerous places, but she feared losing herself to it.
She enlists the help of a former police officer to help her leave the life of shadows and danger behind. Unaware of her true identity, he changes Dylan's name to Simone and assigns her a babysitting job, watching over a cafe owner name Carol.
As Simone, she works as a waitress, hoping to keep her own secret while helping those around her and finding a semblance of a normal life. As she discovers more mysteries around her, she wonders if anyone truly has a normal life.
When she meets a man with the ability to negate her mutation, she is intrigued, but he seems to be more of a complication than friend. He can track her, and finds ways to interfere with what she's doing. She can't tell if it's intentional, or why and how he finds her.
Now Dylan has more secrets than she knows what to do with, and her past has tracked her down.

THIS IS EPISODE 2 IN THE BLACK HULL SERIAL NOVEL. NEW EPISODES EVERY TWO WEEKS OR LESS.
Black Hull is a lost-in-space thriller, with strong elements of suspense and mystery. There are also tones of subtle eroticism, minus graphic imagery. It is intended for adult audiences.
This thriller’s edge of your seat narrative keeps the reader questioning: What’s going to happen to Mick next? It’s given up front that Mick Compton is a man with a past: he’s facing thirty years in prison for violence—and he’s lost his once highly coveted position with NASA’s FRINGE outfit. Now, facing a long stretch in prison, with two sons and an ex-wife he wants back, he’s faced with a horrible dilemma—do the time and miss out on his children’s youth, or run one black hull smuggling operation in a distant system, get a meaty reward, and pay off a connection with a standing offer to wipe his crime history from the UCA database.
All is going well until the ride home: Mick finds himself waking up prematurely, long before arriving in Earth orbit. He’s floating in dead space. Not only has he woken from cryo early, but he’s not aboard his black hull vessel any longer: he’s in an escape pod with only enough power for several more hours of life-support. It is Mick waking up that begins the first episode in the Black Hull serial novel. The fast-paced writing, the mystery of what happened to his crew, and Mick’s panic-stricken quest to stay alive in a strange future and get back home to his family creates an incessant need for readers to devour each new episode in this serialization. The action of the plot is interwoven with riveting flashbacks that depict Mick’s mistakes leading up to the loss of his marriage and the murder of his wife’s lover. Mick’s is a story of a man grappling with regret, clinging to a far-fetched hope that somehow, things can be made right again, despite man’s known laws of physics.

Sasha is the youngest scientist of this new generation and has pioneered the way to a whole new level of genetic engineering… but little does she know, that’s going to spell trouble.
After countless years of hard work at Gentec Laboratories, she’s made an amazing breakthrough. Sasha has created her own strands of DNA, not just from current species, but ones that have been long extinct. Her specialty: predators.
Just as things are being finalized on her latest creation, she wakes up in a forest without any memory of arriving. It takes only seconds to realize she’s no longer on Earth, and even less to realize she must fight to survive.

The only thing is, the further they travel, the more Sasha begins to realize what this place could be. Doubts seep into her mind as they travel deeper into this strange world. More than skill will be needed to escape this place; they’ll need luck and a lot of help. Some of that is found along the way, but with it comes secrets from the past and dire warnings of what lies ahead.
Can these two, a scientist and a hunter, make their way off this harrowing planet alive? An incredible, and terrifying, adventure lies ahead!

NEVER REPRINTED SCIENCE FANTASY CLASSIC! When the first volume of this classic trilogy appeared as a complete novel in the March 1952 Amazing Stories, it caused a sensation and hundreds of readers wrote in demanding a sequel. It took two more sequels to begin to satisfy the reader's hunger for "more Flannigan, please!" Ray Palmer, editor of rival Other Worlds, hailed the Flannigan stories as "terrific" and called the author, a "worthy successor to Edgar Rice Burroughs." For the first time in more than half a century, read this thrilling, colorful science fantasy adventure that captures all the excitement and energy of the classic pulp magazines. Don't miss this visionary trilogy that become increasingly off-trail as it develops from book to book, and is certain to remind some readers of the work of Jack Vance. A song was the clue that propelled Michael Flannigan from one world to another. A song and a dream. The song told of a strange woman and a strange land, and so did the dream. Most vivid of all was the image of a strange other dimensional gateway shaped like a lens that lay somewhere on the Moon. That's why Flannigan became an astronaut, and that's why Flannigan made certain he was chosen pilot on the next flight to Luna. Behind him, Flannigan left the woman he loved and who loved him. But he left even more behind when he found the the inter-dimensional gateway and passed through it. There he found he found a primitive world of swords and arrows, with ancient legends of golden gods and lost magic, a world enslaved, groaning beneath oppressors, fighting constantly for its life. There Flannigan discovered the truth about himself, about his identity. If he could only believe that truth! There he also found his lost love, Altinra, "she of laughter, whose eyes were like the dawn." But, when Altinra was captured Flannigan determined to free both her and all the people who dwelt in the land beyond the lens. Flannigan's only hope was his knowledge of Earth weapons like explosives and guns! To rescue Altinra, Flannigan determined to fight the terrors of this hidden world of monsters and primitive city states with modern weapons. It was a daring dream that would carry him to victory or death. And did Flannigan really want to live? For if he won he would have to choose, not merely between two worlds, but between two loves! "I'd stand in line for a story by Stu Byrne!" said Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Balrog Award winning sf author Ardath Mayhar says that Stuart J. Byrne writes science fiction "with strong metaphysical elements [that] develops the color and excitement of Edgar Rice Burroughs, melded with the complex visual imagery of A. Merritt. In short, it is a compelling read." With a special introduction by the author.

by J.F. Holmes
$0.00, 175 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (13 reviews), #226 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Fantasy
Being the Captain of a Privateer is hard work. Having your hard-charging but impulsive younger brother as the Master at Arms is harder. Trying to keep your ships' wizard from drinking himself to death is even harder. Having your long-lost royal love show up in a bordello when you're trying to get a little R & R after months at sea, and being attacked by cultist? Hardest.
Brian Cumberland does the best he can to balance the lives of his crew with his own desire to live life as a free man. Skirting the border between being a privateer and an outright pirate, Cumberland stumbles into the middle of a religious cult intent on corrupting the kingdom of an old friend. Swords are drawn, magic flares, and ships burn.
I asked Lilith for her bow and, when she handed it to me, asked her if she needed it back.
“No,” she answered, an amused smile on her face. She handed it to me, and followed it up with a kiss. It was deliciously warm on my cheek. I smiled and started jogging down the beach.
The Marines halted their advance when they saw me, a single man walking towards them. “CHALLENGE!” I yelled at the top of my lungs in Ringlander, and their commander stepped forward out of the ranks. I knew it was their leader by the moonlight shining on his golden armor, and the stiff horsehair plume on his helmet.
“Cumberland, I knew it would be you,” he said when he got close enough to speak without shouting. “There will be a pretty reward when I bring your head in.”
“Lord Farstal. Been a long time.”
“Not long enough. My sister still has a broken heart. You left her standing at the altar, and brought shame on my house.” He paced back and forth in front of his men, slowly swinging his sword.
“As nice of a set of teats she had, she would have still turned into a fat harpy within a few years, and she had a sour disposition, like her brother. You always were an uptight prick.”
He stopped swinging his sword and smiled at me. “You will pay for that, baseborn. Do you challenge me to single combat?” I had forgotten how huge the man was, a veritable giant. He handled the two handed sword like it was a toothpick, and I had seen him in the pits of Dece, fighting death matches for FUN. His troops were shouting encouragement, and he was pumping himself into a rage, the better to cut me in half.
“Nope!” I said, pulled back the bow, and shot him in the face. He stood for a second, then fell forward onto the sand, dead before he hit the ground, the head of the arrow standing out from the back of his helmet. Like I said, I’m strong, and honor be damned. There was a stunned silence from the Marines. Before they could react, I dropped the bow, turned and ran my ass off.
“TRISTANNNNNNNN!” I took a second to shout, before I lost my breath from running. I lowered my head and powered on through the sand, all the while angling to my left, steadily moving diagonally towards the trees. My objective had been to prevent the Marines from forming a shield wall, and it had worked. Every single one of them was chasing after me, bent on avenging their commander. Thankfully I was unburdened by armor and faster than most. As I ran towards the trees, they angled after me, presenting their flank to the waiting archers of Lilith and the rest of the Halfies.
The Marines ran into an arrow storm that came whistling out of the moonlight, mowing down a dozen of them and throwing the rest into a mass of confusion. At the second volley, more fell, and then the half dozen Widowmakers, in full armor and lead by Tristan, charged forward in a solid wedge, shields up and interlocked, stabbing forward with their short swords. Behind them were Lilith and a half dozen archers, with short bows singing, releasing an arrow every second. They crashed into the disorganized Marines and started the brutal butcher’s work of cutting their way through the mob.

He thinks he has the risk under control until his master sends him into the imperial palace and Kirrin comes face to face with the supreme ruler himself.
Kirrin must choose. Does he commit the act from which there is no return, or does he find his way in the darkness that has enveloped him.

After braving the ocean, Nyra finds herself incarcerated on the other side of the world. The would-be saviors are in the midst of civil war, and her presence inflames their rivalry. Caught by the Sorja herd, Nyra is held prisoner with Olieve; a Royal as garrulous as she is blind, neither friend nor foe, but essential to the young dragon’s escape. Yet even escape has little promise, as the opposing Raklisall herd has a poisonous outlook on Agrings, so potent it reawakens an old scandal of superstition and murder.
At the crux of deceit, scorn, and prejudice, Nyra must unearth new weapons in her natural repertoire and learn the identity of a mysterious hero. Only then can she return home and at long last free her downtrodden kin.

A murdered mage. A legendary sword. A poet in peril!
The mightiest wizard of all time is dead, murdered by ambitious rivals who crave his power. Locked in his tower are the secrets to world conquest. The only man who can retrieve them is the son he never loved.
Calibot thought he’d finally found happiness as a poet in the court of an influential duke. But the same ruthless sorcerers who killed his father are now after him. His only defense is the legendary dragon sword, Wyrmblade, his lone bequest for a miserable childhood. Enchanted within the sword’s steel is the key to his father’s magic. But using it could cost Calibot his soul. Worse, this may always have been his father’s plan.
As he struggles to complete the mad last wishes of the father he loathes, everyone with a stake in The Known World’s future will try to stop him – his power-hungry uncle, the murderers, even an earth fairy bent on revenge. If Calibot fails, he dies. If he succeeds, he’ll lose everything he’s ever loved . . . including himself.

Welcome to the world of Selot. This is the second volume of his adventures.
After the defeat of the Emissary which threatened the destruction of the Marquisate of Atiarav, Selot returns to the Uicics to inform the Council of the outcome of the mission, and to complete his training. He’s forced to undertake another endeavour, this time with the Rotmandi people, a mysterious group settled to the north. To prepare for the undertaking, he must carry out a very difficult apprenticeship under the guidance of master Janavel who incessantly makes him overcome his limits and weaknesses. He does his apprenticeship with Marrhit, a Vetem warrior who is just a few years older and who has outstanding abilities. Marrhit shows him ferocious hate, inextinguishable and apparently incomprehensible. And yet, together, as a mismatched alliance, the Council entrusts them with a new and terrible challenge.
Selot picks up pieces of truth about his life which eventually forms his one belief; to maintain ‘what is right in his heart’.
In the meantime, the fate of the marquisate of Atiarav is always more uncertain and the search for the Cumbal is not at its end.
“Selot, observe how the earth transmutes every single thing, even death, into life; it does this in silence and in the dark, without protest. It collects every thing and transforms it. Every part of life lays its roots into the ground. Be humble, silent, trustworthy, and strong like the earth.”

Can anyone truly see life through the eyes of another?
The secretive Brotherhood practices an ancient magic that transforms the eyes of the dead into a powerful magical talisman that lets them access the skills and abilities of their owners. They are shunned and feared wherever they go.
Kalis has taken refuge in an abandoned church and played the part of an ordinary citizen for years, but when his young friend comes to him with news of her mother’s death, he breaks his mask and seeks revenge on her behalf. When the killer destroys Kalis’ home, he’s left with the eyes of a killer and an abandoned child who needs his help.
Kalis’ only hope is to fabricate a new set of eyes before the killer takes over his soul, but when he’s injured he has to rely on Sasti to help him. He learns too late that the killer had a special fondness for little girls that invades Kalis’ dreams and his every waking moment.
If Sasti can’t finish his new eyes for Kalis, he will have to choose between the eyes of a killer and blindness. That is, if he can fight back the urges long enough to coach her through the process.

From the author
The phrase "eye color magic" struck me as such a unique concept that had to be explored. Kalis is the first in a series of novellas that takes us through a world where the proper preservation of someone's eyes gives practitioner the knowledge and skills of their former owner. Unfortunately, that's not all they inherit.

Deep within the heart of an ancient city ruled by a powerful empire, a young orphan named Baltor struggles daily to survive, having to drink from animal troughs and steal food. Pursuant to imperial law, the minimum penalty for thievery means the loss of a hand...the maximum penalty is death!
As what happens to most thieves, the day inevitably comes when Baltor does get caught stealing--this time a link of sausage. Thankfully he is not caught by a guard, but by a beautiful and exotic woman named Lady Lydia. She not only graciously offers the boy some breakfast, yet a surprising proposition--become "a master thief" like herself. Having no other choices in life, he agrees to both offers.
After breakfast, Lydia leads the boy to a magnificent "top secret" underground labyrinth located underneath the city, where expert thief-training grounds were built five centuries earlier. Instead of training him however, she unexpectedly hands him off to a man she introduces as Drill Instructor Humonus before disappearing into the depth of the labyrinth.
Right away, this cold-and-cruel man's hardcore training proves to be hellish and dangerous for the boy...will he even survive DAY 1? And what in the world do the pictured swords have to do with Baltor's past and future?

Reading the present and past lives of trespassing souls, and then determining if they should be granted a chance to return to the human world to live another human lifetime, or if they should be banished to eternal darkness in the Soul Drop is what the role of Custodian entails. But reading these souls means witnessing the disturbing and disgusting sights of the actions they have taken during their lifetimes. Seb finds those sights so sickening and distressing he cannot deal with them. As a result Aelfric Duir, his mentor, is left to pick up the pieces, taking on Seb's workload along with his own.
Members of Seb's Custodian group, and those of Aelfric Duir's group, are becoming increasingly frustrated with Seb. They know he is capable of so much more and are concerned that Aelfric, taking on the additional burden, is becoming exhausted.
Returning home for the Christmas holidays, Seb looks forward to stepping away from his failures and living some semblance of a normal life. But then he is attacked ... The attack is vicious, unconventional and life-threatening.
Now the concern is no longer Seb's inability to fulfil his role, it is whether he can survive the night while Aelfric and the groups seek to identify, locate and stop his attacker...

In the arm of a particularly attractive spiral galaxy, there once was a speck of a solar system in which resided a planet of such exquisite beauty that anyone who caught the merest glimpse of it died of sheer joy. This story has nothing to do with that planet. Instead, this story takes place on a planet that looks more like a flying chunk of coal bereft of beauty of any kind. Officially, this planet has been designated 788682 Fólkvangr Lamda Ratatoskr ZaoJun AC-141 III. Everyone just calls it Flurdge.
After inadvertently angering a high ranking general, Pentinium, young wizard-in-training, is promoted to sergeant and granted command over a squad of misfits: Trent, A spy too fascinated with his own hair; Jay, a self-proclaimed expert in the transportational arts; Zeus, incredibly boring intel officer; Erin, a psychopathic elven sniper with a scrapbook; and Stappy, the resident dwarf and explosives expert with Deep Pocket Pants of Holding. Their suicidal mission: destroy the Global Goblin Army's nigh impregnable Fortress, Soombine. They'll have to overcome mine fields, orc patrols, corrupt officials, and their own ineptitude if they have a hope of succeeding. But, don't worry. The ever-optimistic Pentinium will lead them through it. Right? ...Right?

She begins to wonder if they’re even making a difference. That changes when Evey and Isaiah are imprisoned, beaten, and used as bait to capture the infamous Robin Hood.
But Evey has a secret--one that not even Isaiah is privy to: the merry men don't exist, and neither does their leader.

An inexperienced wizard summons a strange hollow rock from the sea. Out of the rock comes something large, nasty and very hungry, and soon it's heading for Camelot. And there may be more of them…
Normally Merlin would step in at this point and save Camelot; but Merlin has mysteriously disappeared, leaving the fate of Camelot in the rather less powerful hands of Gwydden the Abstruse, a wizard whose main talent is in making dragons that explode unexpectedly, and Gwydden's sidekick Hergrim, a dwarf with a large axe, a large red beard, and a short temper.
Will Gwydden and Hergrim be able to save Camelot and its inhabitants, or will it (and they) be devoured by an ancient race of evil shape-shifters?

Puzzled, they looked at each other inquiringly. The child continued to stare.

Damien grew up on a farm with beautiful green pastures and lots of cattle. Just because Damien's life was the envy of his friends, Damien was dying inside because of the abuse from his father. Damien's father made him work all day in the blazing hot sun loading branches into the wood chipper. Damien was getting sick and tired of not getting anything to eat or drink all day. When Damien would ask his father if he could take a break, as tears flowed down his cheeks, Damien's father would call him names like sissy boy, your pathetic, and I don't know why you were born. Damien's love for his father quickly grew into hatred. Whenever Damien would lay his weak body down for the night, he would dream of putting his father into the wood chipper, but Damien's anger hadn't quite reached that point yet of going through with his dream, but it sure was in the back of his mind.

Being my first book, expect a lot of mistakes and flaws in it
But still, it would be your support that would help me get better and better day by day.
So nothing else i've got to say, just read it.
I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.
I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.
The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.
If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.
If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.
Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.
Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:
Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.
From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.
Those same searches with a keyword:
Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.
There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:Kindle Freebies
The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.
The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.
Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date
They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online. Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.
If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.
Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
