"By far the best book I have read this year. Not only in the horror genre, but overall."
After two strangers appear in the dilapidated 70s' town of Kerwall, the lives of every resident change. Members of the community are forced together as the number of bodies and secrets increase with every passing moment. As tensions rise and the inhabitants reach breaking point the question is raised: is it Kerwall’s newcomers draining its inhabitants or are they simply slipping through the cracks which have existed all along. With knowledge as their only tool against the world’s deadliest predator, the hunt for power commences. Kerwall’s hope rests on the shoulders of its youngest residents, forcing them into the depths of the earth, questioning everything they’ve ever known.
Will Kerwall ever be safe, or is the whole town trapped in the grasp of these outsiders?
Warning: DO NOT ENTER ALONE. Drag someone with you and if you are unable make sure to leave with your sanity in tact.
This nod to classic horror will leave you feeling as isolated as every character, constantly checking over your shoulder until the very last pages. Beginning the universe in which Reed’s future novels will take place, Kerwall Town demonstrates the scope of genres which can be expected from him going forward.

| Sightings: Gamagōri Gargantuan|
by J. F. Rodo Rome
$0.00, 171 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (6 reviews), #176 in Occult Horror
The Gamagōri Gargantuan is the enormous sea creature of legend rumored to reside in the triangular area between Japan, Philippines and the Marshall Islands: “The Gamagōri Depths.” It takes its name from the prefecture in Japan where it was first spotted in modern times “Gamagōri.” The first known sighting this century was off the coast of Gamagōri Japan after the massive 1934 Muroto Typhoon.
For hundreds of years, sailors and fishing villagers, alike in this area have told the tales of seeing the “thing” in the same scantily travelled area of the Pacific.
Sightings have continued to present day throughout the same area of ocean—in the lost sea surrounding Japan with numerous newspaper reports and first-hand accounts.
There are disturbing consistencies that should be acknowledged. First, the massive sea-monster is often initially mistaken for a landmass or corral reef (until it is too late); and two, the other commonality is that this massive thing just so happens to originate in the Mariana Trench the deepest part of the ocean. Perhaps the perfect, or only, place habitable by such a large predator.

He realizes that these brutal slayings aren’t as random as they first appeared. The town of Malheur seems to be idyllic, situated in the center of a quiet agricultural river basin of eastern Oregon. But one day’s work disabuses him of that notion. The job of police chief is one that he’s long sought. He’s found a place where his mixed heritage won’t make him stand out, but instead will be an asset in this ethnically diverse community. But he hadn’t imagined the bizarre split that exists between reality and the town’s normal facade. And things are about to become even stranger. The spirit of the murdered girl is bent on revenge, and she’s brought to bear the power of her Shinto gods to bring the perpetrator of her murder to justice.

No man could have made such prints, even if a man were walking barefoot in the dead of night across an inhospitable mountain slope.
When Ellen MacDonald arrives for a surprise visit to her uncle’s remote lodge on the lower slopes of the snow-swept Cairngorms, Doctor MacDonald is on a most unusual case.
At the time-hallowed monastery of St Bechan, a brother has fallen dangerously ill with a mysterious sickness. The doctor’s diagnosis suggests a baffling fever, but to the monks of St Bechan, steeped in the dark myths of the Black Peak, it is a case of possession.
Sudden, savage deaths follow – animals, and then men. In the shadow of the jagged peaks towering against the grey skies of Scotland an immemorial legend has come to light – a legend reaching across hundreds of years and thousands of miles. In the chill mountains a low, fretful wail rises and falls with the driving wind – the cry of the SNOWBEAST!

| A Grim Light Rising: Book One of The Illuminariad|
by Joseph Burgo
$0.00, 351 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #93 in Dark Fantasy Horror
The opening installment of a new epic fantasy series more akin to literary/psychological fiction than to the standard swords and dragons fare. The author has published several books in the popular psychology genre and brings his extensive background as a psychotherapist to bear on his characterizations. Although never so identified, one character suffers from bipolar disorder, endowed with special powers but only during his manic phase. Another might be described as a charismatic narcissist: he lives forever by draining the life force from those who fall in love with him.
THE SAGA BEGINS
Young Devianna must flee her village before anyone discovers she is Vacillian, a freak of nature who unpredictably shifts back and forth between sexes. The civilization of Messano was long ago decimated by a plague which left most people void of "fellow feeling" while dooming a few rare mutants such as Devianna to pariah status. If they find her out, the villagers will stone her to death.
Devianna soon crosses paths with the itinerant bard Madino, part of a secret order of hyper-empaths that has been striving for centuries to heal Messano and return it to its former glory. The ancient chronicle he declaims at Castle Inario, about the wise Soltans who once ruled the entire world, inspires King Nical with visions of unlimited power. When Nical's idiot-savant brother Tavi teaches himself to read and resurrects the lost art of forging iron, Nical sees a way to build himself an unstoppable army. He hasn't yet realized that he has ceased aging or that he owes his enduring youth to the servant girls who fall in love with him, only to wither away and die.
Arran - Nical and Tavi's other brother - swings back and forth between hopeless despair and giddy joy. Under the influence of foria smoke, a stimulant that elates him, he one day discovers that he can fly like an eagle and read currents within time unfolding. Soon he becomes a prophet-like figure to disaffected youth across Estneva, calling thousands of men and boys to enlist in Nical's new army. The three brothers join forces to conquer all of wide Messano, unaware that the slaver Silvana has for years been training a secret army of her own to usurp the throne.
Richly drawn characters vie for power in this dark fantasy, unfolding on an epic scale. By the best-selling author of THE NARCISSIST YOU KNOW, WHY DO I DO THAT?, and THE LIGHTS OF BARBRIN.

This novella begins his continuing saga, as he is compelled by combinations of choice and circumstance to use his newfound power to become everything from a seeker of personal vengeance to a reluctant anti-hero to oppose various threats that come his way and may present an even bigger menace to the Queen City than he is. This is his origin story, where he begins the long journey that will ultimately culminate in his becoming the lycanthropic monster hunter and champion code-named Beowolf you will see in various upcoming publications by Wild Hunt Press (hint: look out for BOOGEY KNIGHTS Vol. 1 and MANSION OF THE MACABRE Vol. 1, to name two!). However, the road that brings him there will be a difficult one filled with horror, tragedy, trauma, and triumph along the way, and it all started here!
In his first exploit, you see Nero's origin as he seeks bloody revenge on those who had tormented him in the past, and also finds himself forced to use the power of the werewolf against the threat of the monstrous canine known as the Jack Dog and the vicious pack of feral dogs under his control that seek to become nothing less than the alpha predator of the Queen City, feeding on humans and targeting Nero, a newly created werewolf, as a rival to be eliminated. Can the young Nero prevail against the Jack Dog and his brutal pack even with the power of the werewolf at his beck and call, and while he is still just learning how the power works? And does he even want to, considering his own hatred of the human species?

***** One of my favourite films is the ‘Wickerman’ and this had a similar mood to it for me. Highly recommended!

Paige swore under her breath and fumbled around until her hand brushed soft velvet. Withdrawing a box of matches from the bag, she struck it against the side of the box until a flame flared to life and she lit one of the nearest candles to her, her pupils shrinking in the sudden burst of light.
Then she looked up and let out a short, bitten-off scream.
A…thing was there, looming above her, observing her with the impassivity of the cat. Though most of it was shrouded in darkness, Paige knew it was a demon. She could vaguely make out the silhouette of wings, of huge horns curling up from its head like a gazelle. She wanted to light more candles to see better, but she didn’t want to look away from the creature.
“You…you heard me?” Paige asked, licking her lips nervously. “I…can you talk? I mean, can you understand me?”
“I can,” replied the demon in a deep, booming voice that gave it away as a male.
“What’s your name?” she asked, feeling a little foolish, but how else did one converse with a demon?
He seemed faintly amused by the question.
“You may call me Kryanis,” he said, with a slight inclination of his head.
“Where’s my sister?” Paige asked, but even as she asked, she feared she already knew the answer. She hadn’t heard Paige running up the stairs out of the basement and there was no other way out – if she hadn’t run out, but wasn’t anywhere in the room, then…
“Why, she’s with us, of course,” replied Kryanis, calmly.
“What do you mean, she’s ‘with you’?” Paige demanded, her heart pounding in her chest.

A book full of impotence and condemnation, in a difficult but understandable jacket. After Unknown Tendencies, I come up with a new book called Homicidal Tendencies. Also a psychological horror / thriller but this time as part 1 should have been. Maria wakes up in an insane asylum and there begins her struggle to remain human.
Whether she succeeds with a lot of trial and error and being thrown back into her past is up to her, although sometimes it doesn't seem that way and the battle will sometimes become impossible.
Especially when she ends up in her own hell. This is not a book for a cozy evening but more for a freezing cold winter evening with the warm flashing fire.
I hope you enjoy it. You will be an exception for time.
You will live forever.
Thou shalt kill for me Namtillaku, only then will I Namtillakuforgive you for your disobedience.
Always be watchful for the realm of shades. When you die the earth will lose a piece of life!
You are hereby condemned to an Eternal life.

This place felt, in Stacey Miller’s words, like ‘watching paint dry.’
It was sad enough that she was born here. Everything seemed like it was written down like in a book. A bore, she called it. To her, living here was just pure torture. She had enough of the place.
Holly field was a beautiful place. It was the usual look of a town with a mix of forestry and homely buildings. All the houses looked the same. Cozy and average with the picket fences and gates. Some with manicured lawns and gardens. They all looked the same. The town had a simple look to it. It was the only place she had ever known.
Being the kind of person she was, which was an isolated and self-absorbed personality, she wanted nothing but to know more about the world outside her town.
Where else would she go? Why would she go? Could she even go?
Of course not.
She was a sixteen-year-old brunette, who lived with her quite odd parents. A sixteen-year-old girl with short brown hair and dark eyes and no siblings who just lived like everything that was going to happen, happened.
Of average height, modest stature and with no care for any of that, Stacey kept modest time away for herself. With her olive skin, moody and cool attitude, ‘house with no neighbors’ kind of home and ‘dress me, I don’t care’ kind of wardrobe, Stacey barely had any close friends. Friends she had, but nothing more. Always cool, calm and collected, Stacey had a dark cloud over her thoughts concerning where she lived. She did not hate it. She just didn’t know...

“They? Who is they?” Esther raised an eyebrow. “You can’t mean?”
“Who else? She and Jason. There was this picture where she had just a bikini on and Jason’s packs were fire. Sometimes, I wish Mac was more masculine,” Joanne said right before she slammed her locker door and walked towards Chemistry class.
“Urghhhhhhh! Can these people go a day without talking about their silly pictures?” Leila said under her breadth with her hands clutching her backpack.
As she walked through the hallway, her locker seemed farther away with every step closer. Slowly, the walls began to close in, and the grounds opened. Leila could see nothing but black. The purple paint now cold, black, the tiles the same, the people in the hall morphed into obsidian, gooey aliens and the entire hallway spiralled in circles.

Under the shadow of war, young Marcus tries and fails to protect his mother from terrible violence. Traumatized after her brutal death, for which he blames himself, the boy is driven north by Imperial slavers.
Slipping free, he stumbles into the Valley of the Kings, where the dead are restless and the walls of the world are thin. At the edge of death, Marcus is saved by Lord Takuri, a fearsome warrior-priest who demands unwavering service in return for aid.
While voyaging between worlds, things become complicated when Marcus encounters the Shadow Prince, a prehistoric dark god who offers Marcus a miracle -- but at a terrible price. Marcus struggles to make a path through a world of war and political intrigue that is filled with prehistoric technology and twisted sorcery, monsters and demons, and lies a thousand years old. Through it all, he must decide just how far he is willing to go for a second chance.
A fresh take on science fantasy and horror, DREAMSHADOW explores the unrelenting power of the human will, the price of redemption, and the blurred line between good and evil.
CW: Mature Content and Themes
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.
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.
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 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.
