For I am the devil, and I am in love.

She was made to bow at my throne. A sad, pretty apostate.

A vampire with no bite, no power, and no bloodline. Friendless, damaged, and bearing a powerful secret.

One, as king, I will treasure. Hide away. Sequestering my new queen from court.

She is only for my eyes.

Pearl will exist to please me, to love me. And to assure it, each dusk her memories of all I’ve done to her shall be washed clean. A fresh canvas—a lump of innocent clay to mold as I will.

And my will is a terrible thing.

Publisher's Note: Catacombs is a tale of pure horror. If such material offends you, please do not purchase.

Paige walked down a dimly lit hallway.
She had heard that a bathroom was located somewhere nearby.
The girl eventually spotted a door with the word 'restroom' carved elegantly into the wood.
The sounds of male and female voices filled the hall, and Paige froze.
She thought the voices were coming from the bathroom, but as she walked further down the hall she realized that the voices were coming from behind a curtain.
The thick curtain hung at the end of the hallway.
Unable to fight her curiosity, Paige carefully slid the curtain to one side.
Holding her breath, she peeked into a spacious room.
The curtain was meant to replace a door.
The room beyond it was so very dark; the only light came from two candles that sat on a wooden nightstand.
Paige heard movement and her gaze shifted toward a large bed—the bed was situated in the center of the room.
A soft gasp left her lips.
++++
An extremely attractive couple was engaged in sexual intercourse.
Their bodies were beautifully sculpted, looked nearly unreal.
The powerful muscles in the man's long, lean form could clearly be seen in the soft candlelight.
The woman was shapely, golden-blonde hair a pool beneath her.
His gorgeous waist-length locks were a true raven-black.
Paige ran her tongue over her lips.
The woman was resting on her back, legs twisted about her lover.

The Last Child part 1: A dark and disturbing Supernatural Suspense Thriller
by Sean Kerr
$0.00, 187 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (17 reviews), #1 in History of Catholicism
Some children are born for a purpose.

Samuel is having a tough time of it in school as he is tormented by a vicious gang of bullies, but it is nothing compared to the torture of his home life. Every night he hopes that his friend will take him away from his horrors, a friend he calls the Universe, a constant voice that speaks to him in his darkest moments. At least the Universe loves him.

As his teacher, Christina King wants so much to help Samuel, but she’s haunted by her own horrific childhood and the monstrous tragedy that stole her youth. She feels drawn to the young boy, she understands his pain, but she has no idea of the nature of the true horror that binds them in a vicious game of tug and war.

There is only one group of people who know the truth about Christina and Samuel, a sinister group of watchers who have observed them all their lives, a group known as 'I Tredici'. They have been waiting for centuries, and as the signs of the oncoming apocalypse reveal themselves in blood and brutal murder, they know the ancient war is upon them at last. Only they understand the roles that Christina and Samuel must play in the coming days, and only they know how the outcome will change the course of history forever.

For Christina, this is the start of her journey towards a terrible truth, but for Samuel, it is the start of a new and terrifying existence.

'If Derek had been facing the window, he would have seen it, the figure standing behind the lower pane, watching him through the darkened glass. It was nothing but a blurred outline behind the frilly lace curtain, but it was there, its head juddering violently from side to side until it became indistinguishable from the lace that concealed it.'




Nail of Iron
by John Schulz
$0.00, 291 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #18,333 in Occult Horror
Genetic experimentation, gene manipulation, nuclear micro science, and threatening religious providence come together touching upon the lives of an ordinary couple from a New York suburb. Near retirement and seeking to settle away from a terrible past not of their creation but from one forced upon them by fanatics on the other side of the globe decades ago, they find themselves the mistaken product of an shuttered government experiment.

Their world of common repetition, family and set friends, stagnant and predictive, is bent into a driving story of physical and spiritual revelation, of politics outside of civilian life, of the shifting machinery that is progress and its silent war with the foundation of the divine.

Man has stepped into the realm of the divine with a heavy clad boot, the delicate weave of creation shaking under his inelegant hand and his brutish infantile grasp of the machinery of the universe. Its here that we will find out answers but only by destroying first, causing ruin, and gaining wisdom. Can it be done without causing our own extinction?

Ghost: Retelling the Phantom of the Opera (Alydia Rackham's Retellings)
by Alydia Rackham
$0.00, 295 pages, 4.9 out of 5.0 (28 reviews), #1 in Teen & Young Adult Theater & Musicals Fiction eBooks
THE WORLD'S MOST HAUNTING LOVE STORY--AS YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE...
A cavalier vicomte--the new owner of the theatre--insists on having his own work performed, all the while being haunted by a devilish spirit.
A young soprano's grief for her father's death has robbed her of her ability to sing.
A world-famous tenor has been mysteriously summoned to Paris...
And a shadowy figure lurks through the opera house, torn between his desire for love and beauty, and his need for a terrible revenge.

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER ELEVEN:
“Mamselle, your hands are like ice,” Mercier whispered. “Please, let me help you.”
“I’m all right, Mercier,” she answered. “I…I need to watch…” She let go of him and pressed herself into the curtain, her attention fixed on the stage. The stagehands were setting it with the dining table of Don Giovanni’s house, laden with wax foods. The lights came on. Musicians, Giovanni, and Leporello entered, and began their banter once more.
The music became uneasy. It stirred and shifted, like a sleeping dragon.
Donna Elvira appeared, making one last plea that Don Giovanni repent from his wicked ways. Giovanni refused, and Elvira turned to flee through the upstage door in tears—
Screamed.
Christine frowned.
Tonight—that scream sounded different.
She strained to see…
Giovanni and Leporello argued about who could be at the door that would scare Elvira so badly.
Dreadful knocks upon the wood. Leporello hid.
Giovanni went to the upstage door himself. Opened it.
The Commendatore stood in the doorway. Stony drapery cascading around him. A sword on his belt. His helmet gleaming in the lights.
Giovanni recoiled.
Mozart’s music gasped—and let out a fatal scream of its own.
A chill raced down Christine’s spine.
Silence.
The Commendatore slowly raised an arm…
But instead of pointing down at Giovanni…
His finger directed the entire opera house to look to Box Five.
“Don Giovanni! You invited me to dinner—and I have come!”
The violins played a sinister pulse beneath the deliberate hammer-fells of that voice—that voice, without guttural resonance or sharp vibrato—only pure, fearsome penetrating tone. An instrument more perfect than mortal hands could contrive. Its power pierced to bone, filling the theatre, shaking the very floorboards.
Rinaldi and Paquet—Giovanni and Leporello—looked stricken to the core. They stumbled, gaped at each other in confusion—but the music went on. So, they had to sing.
And they did sing. As if a spell had been put upon them by that entrancing, terrible voice: they sang as they never had before.
With his outstretched right hand, the Commendatore seemed to twist his fingers around Rinaldi and Paquet’s very souls, rending notes from their bodies like water from rags. But the Commendatore never addressed them, never pulled his dreadful gaze down from that box. And each phrase fell like a clap of thunder down upon the heads of those sitting in it.
“Repent! Change your ways,
For this is your last hour!
Repent, villain!
Repent!
Yes!
Yes!
YES!”
Suddenly, the statue flung its hand in the air, as if about to call down lightning.
“Ah! Your time is finished!”
And in a blaze of flame, and a billow of his cape, he vanished through the
upstage door.
An icy feeling of dread swallowed Christine.
Rinaldi shared her foreboding. He shot anxious looks at Paquet as he continued to sing.

“What strange fear now attacks my soul!
Where do these fires of horror come from?”

The chorus of “demons” now began to lurk onstage, their leering masks twisting and turning as they crept closer, and joined their voices:

“No horror is too awful for you!
There is far worse in store!”

CRACK!
BOOM.
Christine’s head jerked up.
A blinding flash overtook the ceiling.
A cloud of dust exploded around the chandelier.

When Nathan Milton wakes up to find his wife Cassie missing, he thinks nothing of it—until his hand grazes the pile of dirt on her side of the bed. When the police arrive, they only notice what isn’t there; all of Cassie’s clothes, toiletries, the money from their safe, and her car.

That’s enough for the world to write it off as a runaway, but Nathan knows something isn’t right—his wife would never abandon their twins.

Not in a million years.

Weeks later, after the police officially end their search, Nathan receives a clue that may be the key to unraveling the mystery. With his twin girls in tow, Nathan’s desperate search takes him to the hometown his wife never spoke of—a place buried away within the woods of old New England. But this town has roots that grow far deeper and darker than he could have ever imagined.

Soon, Nathan finds himself embroiled in a maze of trees, deceptions, and bargains made in blood.

The Asylum Confessions
by Jack Steen
$0.00, 245 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (54 reviews), #4 in U.S. Horror Fiction

They arrive alive. They leave dead.

But first, they give me their confessions.

Fans of Stephen King, Joe Hill and like to read books like The Bird Box, The Haunting and can't get enough stories about serial killers are going to enjoy reading the deathbed confessions from The Asylum.

My name is Jack Steen and for those who arrive on my 'death' ward at the Asylum, I'm the last face many will see before they die. I am the night nurse at the Asylum for the Criminally Insane.

Most of my patients are serial killers and mass murderers and they know me as the Angel of Death.

When they come onto my floor, I offer a deal: tell me their story, their 'untold' story that hasn't been read about in the news, sensationalized by media or cataloged in a ridiculous number of academic papers. I want the real story - the one they haven't old anyone. Some of these killers have never confessed to their crimes, some kept certain information to themselves...those are the stories I want.

If they give them to me, I'll make their death...easier. They're already dying, that's why they're now my patients. If they play nice, I can make their death less painful. But only if they play nice and tell me their confessions.

The majority of these killers are expert manipulators. I realize they could be playing me and messing with my head. It's a chance I'm willing to take.

And now...they might just be playing with yours too.

Inside this book are 4 DeathBed Confessions:

Patient 1024 has an interesting 'appetite'.

Patient 974 is the Ken to his Barbie, and he would do anything to keep her happy.

Patient 871 is a Nanny, but not one you want watching your kids.

Patient 1203 is the sweetest, broken soul you'll ever meet but her confession is a hard read.

WARNING: There is swearing in this book. And some stories might be a trigger for something you have a hard time handling.

But, these are the confessions of serial killers, mass murderers and such.

NOTE: These once were published as novellas. Now they're in a full length novel.

Satan's Historian (The Lucifer Chronicles Book 1)
by Carmen Kern

What if you call for Death but the Devil shows up instead?

When a desperate college student, James Rucker, makes an appointment with death, he hardly expects Lucifer to show up at his door instead, job offer in hand. An offer Rucker can't refuse. Not if he wants his family safe and fully souled.

Rucker is sentenced to a new circle of hell, writing Lucifer's memoir in the bowels of a university library.

Within twenty-four hours, Rucker is pulled into the world of the supernatural where he encounters Lucifer's right-hand demon, Fear, the Devil's daughter, and an imprisoned fallen angel. Little does he know there is another force watching him from the darkness. But is this being friend or foe?

As Lucifer reveals the stories of his origin, Rucker discovers there is more to history than what he learned in university, and his own past isn't what he thought it was.

The bets are on the table as heaven and hell roll the dice for Rucker's future.

SATAN'S HISTORIAN is the first novella in the new series, THE LUCIFER CHRONICLES.

Scary Stories for Kids and Children: Collection of 50 Bedtime Stories
by thooya K
$0.00, 137 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #166 in Horror Short Stories
Scary Stories for Kids and Children:

For some reason, everyone loves a good scary story, and this includes kids. Children of every age, from toddlers to teens, love to shiver in response to something creepy or scary. Our selection of scary stories for kids includes not only some very short stories but also some longer stories where the suspense builds. Make sure you choose one appropriate for the age and emotional maturity of the kids listening to the story. For very young children, we suggest you share your plans for telling a scary story with parents before doing so to avoid any problems.
Scary stories do not need to be long and drawn out. Kids have short attention spans and our collection of short, scary stories for kids considers this fact and provides a good scare in a short amount of time.

Advice For Scary Stories:

As a parent, you are the one leading your child through the scary story. You need to be a strong figure for them in this moment so that the child does not regret having asked for this story in the first place. Your kid will be looking to you as an example. If the story is told in a menacing way it will only taint the child’s perception and probably cause nightmares at some point.
Show confidence, courage, and respect as you weave tales of cosmic horror and wicked witches. Children have amazing imaginations. Activate them with a weird tale and they will love it; fail to control the amount of horror and they will be upset.
When telling a scary story remember to:
•Lead your child on a spooky journey
•Let him or her be the hero
•Refrain from using gory details
•Offer a great and positive conclusion

After the scary story is told your child will probably have questions. If they appear to be too nervous perhaps it is not the best idea to tell more scary stories. However, scary stories are one of the most requested types of stories by children, especially around Halloween and other “scary” times so be sure to engage their curiousity if you feel that they are up for it. Only you know your child and their tendencies.
Each kid is different, and you need to be smart about what stories you decide to tell!

$0.00, 94 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #79 in Two-Hour Literature & Fiction Short Reads
Pareidolia Creepy Photos

Pareidolia is the tendency to notice human attributes in inanimate objects - the faces people notice in popcorn ceilings and the personified patterns in shower tiles, for example. The creepiest pareidolia pictures on the internet capture the disturbing sensation of seeing faces in objects that should not be there. Although the faces are often cute when found on a car's bumper or a smiling towel rack, the most unsettling examples of this phenomenon will send shivers down your spine.

While some of the faces are undeniable and obvious, there are a few inanimate objects that have the most disturbing expressions - but only once you see them. These creepy photos of pareidolia popping up in everyday situations, much like pictures of ghosts, are mysterious and unnerving. The longer you linger on vague patterns, the less random their shapes become.

An elderly woman suddenly appeared in my sister’s room
“I was home alone for a weekend a few years ago while I was still in high school. After school one day I was driving home, and when I passed in front of my house I thought I saw some old lady in white clothes in my sister’s room looking through the window. I thought it was stupid, so I went in the room to check out what it actually was, but I couldn’t find anything. I pretty much forgot about it until later that night I got a call from a very panicked and scared neighbor saying there was some old lady pacing back and forth in my sister’s room. I still have no idea what it was, and I’ve never seen anything like it since.”

Collection of Dark Web images old, creepy black and white, murder, and horror.

Do you know why the old picture is creepy? They seem creepy because they show how humans were, it's like when you find an old recording of your voice as a child or you find a notebook from your adolescent days; something is off, they seem fantastic yet they are a technological development. Here are some scary and strange photos that shouldn't exist. Most of them cannot be explained. Can you imagine taking a happy photo and then later find out that there's a ghost behind you?
The paranormal has always been interesting for both skeptics and romantics. Some people believe in the supernatural, and others don’t. But sometimes simple photographs turn out to be very surprising, spooky and even terrifying.


All of this photography is evidence of evil or horror occurrences most people would find terrifying. Check out these...

They are imaginative tales of a nightmare, dreamlike, magical and ghostly world.
I speak of dreams, nightmares, or true stories, but all as if they were dreamed of by the dead, by the dying or being predestined to soon discover the other life.
They are tales that take us into the world of nightmares and ancestral fears, symbolic of our human nature.
I speak of dreams and nightmares, or true stories, but all as they were dreamed by the dead, the dying or those who are predestined to discover the other life soon.
Dead and alive meet in no man's land, or in the dream dimension, where remorse or anguish take shape.

The White Castle: A Surreal Dark Fantasy Romance
by Louisa Alcroft
$0.00, pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #154 in Dark Fantasy Horror
A curious structure stood amidst the expanse of marshes, built upon a great mound of granite and earth to keep it from the rising swamp water. Its walls had been made of carved logs, far advanced in the process of decay. Its interior was painted white and sparsely furnished, most rooms laying empty, with splotches of continents made of condensation and mold working their way into the plaster. The scent of wet leaves permeated the halls and winding staircases, occasionally a fire was lit within to ward off the darkness. There was no one to wonder at how this castaway home came to be, such was its obscurity, for no other sentient eyes were laid upon it than those of its inhabitants.

There was but one figure that occupied it permanently, an emaciated woman with skin that no longer remembered the sun’s caresses, though her eyes and her heart had known them too well. She would spend long hours gazing up at the menacing disk, and then down at the reeds and the bog – she grew to find them beautiful, although at first they did not welcome her. Wild fancies often took hold of her as a means of passing the hours.

At times she would behold the marshland with the amplified wretchedness of decay, seeing the dutiful ferryman row his vessel through the heavy mists of dawn, lowering unhappy hosts through the dark mirror of still waters. No mortal eye could see through its grim surface, so she believed, yet the sallow figure perched at the windowsill was certain that the life of these half-glimpsed ghostly forms would one day begin anew with the help of the serpents and the maggots which writhed at the bottom, welcoming each guests in the manner they were accustomed to.

They were those who had left their posts before their time, she was told, and no other visitors were ever to be expected.
Even so, when the ferryman would wave at her, she would not dare to look into his eyes for too long, dreading to discern in them the disappearing land from whence he came.

Other clockwork days were spent in drawing fragments of what she remembered, or thought she remembered – a life which seemed to her evermore otherworldly than that of the morning mist.

And as for the remainder of her imaginings, these were crafted from the stories her Keeper’s had told her.

A story from a drawer
by Olber Andr
$0.00, 253 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #105 in Historical Fantasy
To be honest, the world's biggest lie begins with the phrase "to be honest», and the truth – with “I’m sorry”. So, I’m sorry, but I don’t understand one thing. Why everyone says that their stories start with something extremely scary or majestic, but for some reason no one says that there are stories that start on their own?
What can unite the legendary general, the Princess of the Infinite Desert, the assassin, the mayor-scientist, the magician, the orphan, the strongest man in the world and the inhabitants of a mysterious underground country, whose existence is indicated only by giant terrestrial drawings?
I do not know how now, but one hundred million years ago only one thing — the desire to survive.
Dzhiar Starelli drank whiskey after a hard session, Gria ran safely through the halls of the Golden Palace, Kles was just beginning to learn the basics of Chaos and Order, Deamon was tracking down another victim, and Syravek Deriua was just looking for peace. But the sudden arrival of alien invaders changed the course of things, forcing everyone to rethink the meaning of existence.
Only El Varaai, a man with a thousand faces, knew the truth of the matter, but the seer could not warn anyone, because something even made him capitulate to new challenges.
That's how this story began. A story where little people are capable of great things, and righteous desires lead to fatal consequences. The story that marked the beginning of everything we use today. But is it over?

When we were kids, we used to share scary stories with our friends. And, more often than not, we would exaggerate a little bit (or a lot) to make the story juicier. But, now, as grownups, we still have some scary tales to tell; only this time, they come from the workplace, and they’re 100% real.

We asked a few people to share their most terrifying work experiences and their answers got us mixed feelings: from giggles and tears of joy to goosebumps and facepalms. Without further ado, here are the scary stories that we heard, and a few tips that’ll help you avoid being on this list next year.

Chapter 1: The Horror in the Pines
Chapter 2: Black Torture
Chapter 3: The Black Priest
Chapter 4: The Black God's Hunger

The silence of the pine woods lay like a brooding cloak about the soul of Bristol McGrath. The black shadows seemed fixed, immovable as the weight of superstition that overhung this forgotten back-country. Vague ancestral dreads stirred at the back of McGrath's mind; for he was born in the pine woods, and sixteen years of roaming about the world had not erased their shadows. The fearsome tales at which he had shuddered as a child whispered again in his consciousness; tales of black shapes stalking the midnight glades . . . .

Notes and Tips


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.

The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.

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.


Free book searches on Amazon

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.


Reddit Groups

There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


eReaderIQ

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.


BookBub

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 Magazine

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.


Overdrive

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.


Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.


Notifications

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.
