Free Kindle Book Listings for 2017-10-15

These are the categories for which I post free book lists:



Zombies
Zombies (SF)
Apocalypse

Time Travel
Colonization
Space Opera

Vampires (Horror)
Vampires (P&UF)
Paranormal & Urban Fantasy

Science Fiction

Sword and Sorcery
Fantasy

Horror


I process them in that order, so what appears in a prior processing will not show up in a later one. For example, if I process it as a Zombie book, it will not show up in Horror or Science Fiction.

All in all, it takes me 15 to 30 minutes to process all the groups. Part of the order above is to facilitate my own examination of the books that are free. For example, I prefer to look at the Horror and SciFi books without having the vampires and paranormal books intermixed.

Right now, each list will have up to 32 of the top-rated newly free books for each category. "Newly free" means I haven't posted it as a free book within the past 6 months. The books listed are derived from Amazon searches for free books, then data is collected from each book's web page so I can create a presentation of details for each book.

The planned posting schedule is once every week or so. Notifications of new listings will be in various GoodReads discussion groups, as well as on a discussion topic on the Reddit Freebies group. You can also receive RSS updates using the link at the bottom.

Note that if you click on a book's description or the horizontal bar above it, it should bring the next book to the top of the screen. Some horizontal bars are red or blue. They're just reminders to me that I already purchased that book (red) or that I already listed that book as free in the past (blue).


These are the Amazon searches that my lists are extracted from:

Apocalypse
Colonization (SF)
Fantasy
Horror
Paranormal & Urban Fantasy
Romance (Fantasy)
Romance (Historical)
Romance (Paranormal)
Romance (SciFi)
Science Fiction
Space Opera
Sword and Sorcery
Time Travel
Vampires (Horror)
Vampires (P&UF)
Zombies
Zombies (SF)

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.


Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

​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.
