From Russia, With Love...
How do you destroy your enemy? Go for the heart, then take over the brain.
The Z1219 virus, created by Russia's most skilled scientists, is the deadliest biological weapon in history. Harbored in the human bloodstream, it remains undetected until detonated. Once detonated, the host becomes a walking corpse with only one goal: Eat everyone.
And now it is in America, packaged in the mail order brides the Russians shipped over to destroy us all.
With the disease now running rampant and no cure yet discovered, it is every uninfected person for himself.
Homes are destroyed and the families inside them torn apart. Relationships can help or hurt as those left uninfected discover they are not entirely untouched by the disease.
Follow a group of strangers as they struggle to do anything necessary to survive without losing their humanity in the process. Some will win this challenge. Most will lose.
It's a new world and the zombies aren't the only monsters. They're just the easiest to recognize in a country gone horribly wrong.

Onur Ozer In 1984, in a small village in Turkey, opened his eyes to the world as the son of a family who made their living by beekeeping. The living of a childhood away from society and introvert has played a major role in the development of his imagination world and his fiction skills, even in those years. The author is quite successful in transferring the elements of fear coming from mysterious and obscurity, which he often treats in his stories, to the reader by blending them with emotions. In the narration, the writer attaches great importance to visuality, involve the readers in the stories with the detailed descriptions he uses and give personelly experiences of the events and feelings to the person who reads it. Another important feature of Onur Ozer's stories is that fiction plays the mind games and encourages the reader to think.

“Not for nothing but last time you practically kicked me out.” She said as he stopped by the stairs and looked at her. “I mean so it is what it is.” She shook her head.
“I didn’t kick you out. I had a mission coming up. I had to leave town that night.” He began as she rolled her eyes.
“Yeah, Alexandria looked like she was ready for you.” She said sarcastically.
“You’re upset about that? About Alexandria?” He said a bit in shock.
“I’m not upset with anything.” She laughed some. “Your free to do anything or anyone you want. “ She walked past him, but he reached out and grabbed her wrist before she stepped on the stairs.
“Are you still with James?” He asked, and she heard a hint of jealousy. It did something to her as she turned and faced him. He was so close.
“Why do you even care Aidan?” She went to pull her wrist back, but he stepped closer and she backed up. Her back hit the wall at the bottom of the stairs. He looked intense and she swallowed hard.
Aidan felt jealousy course through his body. He never got jealous before but now something was pulling at his insides. He wasn’t familiar with the feeling. “Because I’m curious.” He finally said as he stood inches from her. His hand still on her wrist.
“You know what they say about curiosity.” She swallowed hard.

Just over the hill was this little town called Eadondale with a population of one hundred and twenty-five. Eadondale had one church, one school, one bank and one restaurant. Eadondale may not be as big as a big city, but if you ever came to visit you would think otherwise. Everyone left their doors to their house unlocked. Everyone smiled and waved to any stranger that came through this small town. The neighbors were always eager to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, but evil would be lurking in the shadows, waiting to strike at any moment.
The evil I'm talking about is a man by the name of Johnny Walker. Johnny is what you would call a true hell raiser. Johnny stood six feet two inches tall and drank a lot of beer. When he had just a little too much to drink he would get into fights at the bar. Johnny would like to drive his loud Harley Davidson motorcycle in the wee hours of the night, waking up all the neighbors in town. The only thing Johnny was good at is using his pickaxe that he always carried on the side of his motorcycle.

A 1940s Gothic mystery.
A dilapidated manor on a remote Scottish isle. An old maze, concealing something even older. Strange dreams and awakening desires.
Yearning for new surrounds, Iris Muir accepts a position at historic Dorchadas House, on the remote Scottish island of Eirig. Drawn to the wild landscape, Iris hopes to forget the burdens of her past: her father’s death, a narrow life in a small-minded town... but the dilapidated manor houses its own secrets. There are strange cries in the night, and is the stoic housekeeper Mrs McInnes all she seems?
Iris begins to have disturbing dreams about the maze, planted centuries ago in the manor grounds to honour the ‘old ways’, concealing something even older.
“Even on that first night, I dreamt. A presence, in the darkness.”
Despite the consuming task of refurbishing the manor as a guesthouse, Iris increasingly feels the brooding presence of Neas and Eachinn, the two brutish farmhands who seem as much a part of Dorchadas House as the old maze.
Autumn wanes and Samhain Eve approaches. The island folk prepare to honour the dead and the Goddess Nicneven, as they have done for generations past.
“The women play their part, too. We’re the most important, you could say …”
Has something more than chance drawn her to Eirig?
'Dorchadas House' combines elements of folk-horror with adult themes.

| The Woods|
by Steven Finkelstein
$0.00, 342 pages, 3.7 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #334 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Occult
The Woods is set in the fictional town of Feral, West Virginia, a rural community with a modest population. Tad Surrey is the middle child of the family, sandwiched between older brother Casey and younger sister Daisy. Casey is athletic and popular, while Daisy is intelligent but withdrawn, possessing artistic tendencies but virtually no desire for social interaction with her peers. She lives away from the rest of the family, cloistered in the attic of the farmhouse in which they live. Tad himself is also a loner, finding most in common with his younger sister, and choosing to spend much of his time playing solitary games of his own invention in the woods on and around the Surrey property.
It is deep in the woods where Tad feels himself inexplicably drawn one day, pulled like a magnet to a certain spot, far off the beaten paths with which he is familiar. There, he encounters a dapperly dressed man who calls himself Daddy, speaks in riddles, and whose very existence becomes a mystery into which Tad is drawn, sometimes against his will, sometimes with an eagerness that frightens and perplexes him. From this first meeting between these two very dissident minds and lifestyles, a complex chain of events starts to unravel, beginning with a cautious, hesitant friendship, and ending in discordance that could very well rip the Surrey family apart at the seams. Along the way, there is somnambulism, magic, a party of legendarily epic scope, and a mystery going back over fifty years. Who is Daddy, and how did he and his friend Stitch come to be living in the decaying mansion in the woods? That is the question that Tad must answer, if he is ever to have a hope of a normal life again.
The Woods is at its core a novel about what ties a family together. It is about the challenge to that family by an outside influence, and it is about the collision of worlds and world views that are so fundamentally different that they were never meant to touch on one another. It is about whether the bonds of that family will prove strong enough to draw them together against adversity, in the face of this lurking, unknown threat. The protagonist, Tad Surrey, is at a crucial time in his life, on the cusp between innocence and experience, but what he may end up experiencing, if things are not put right, could very well be the end of him.

Trust. Sometimes it is freely given. Other times it is hard-earned. Either way, it’s is a fragile thing. Give it to the wrong person, and it just might cost your life.
The second volume of Ink Stains literary anthology explores the complexity of placing your trust in another person and what can happen when that trust is betrayed.
Join authors Brian Becker, Cooper O'Connor, Marc E. Fitch, I. K. Paterson-Harkness, Daniel Henshaw, J.D. Kotzman, Melanie Marshall, and Douglas Andrew Smith as they deftly delve deep into the dark side of betrayal in a collection of literary tales.
From random encounters with strangers in the night to lovers turned enemies, from “I swear I didn’t know!” to “Who’s laughing now?” our authors dissect reasons betrayal is inevitable, no matter what the relationship, and the sometimes fatal consequences of such actions.
Ink Stains, a quarterly dark fiction and horror anthology published by Dark Alley Press, features gritty fiction. We are about shining a stark light on the shadows of life, exploring those dimly lit corridors, and unearthing those long-buried secrets. We are about examining the human existence and the human psyche in its raw, delicate and dangerous state. We don’t shy away from controversy, nor do we believe good will always triumph over evil or that someone will always be around to save the day. Sometimes all we have is ourselves. And the stories that keep us turning the page.

Perhaps driven by suffering at home, the boy matures quickly, both physically and mentally, ultimately transforming himself into the old man’s superior in every way. With equal measures of cleverness and cruelty, the long-suffering youth eventually engineers his step-father’s suicide, incidentally losing his mother in the same brutal event.
By this time in his young life, Johnny has mastered the football field, having amassed playing statistics impressive enough to leave the community scrambling to keep him local throughout the remainder of high school. Afterward, he changes his name, coasts through college on a full scholarship, and then drafts directly into the pros for a glorious career. After retirement, when the glory fades and his wife’s affection yields to younger, more popular players, Johnny Bullet takes justice into his own hands. The resultant consequences are tragic.

Others comments on the book:
“J C Michael unleashes upon ordinary, unsuspecting characters a fiendish plot that only maestros such as Bentley Little and Michael Slade could rival.”
~ Dean Lombardo, author of Vespa
“A crazy ride to hell and back, if you’re ballsy enough to take on this awesome book.”
~ Claire Riley, author of Limerence
“A literal trip into the abyss echoing with the screams of those classic movies from the 80s where the big bad was bigger than life, unrepentantly evil, and no one was safe. By the time Michael’s 200 beat-per-minute pandemonium kicks in it’s too late to do anything but keep rolling and pray you make it to the last track.”
~ Bracken MacLeod, author of Mountain Home
“Michael’s novel of sex, drugs, music and evil pulls you in seductively, then turns the amp up to 11. With a silky, snaky style reminiscent of Clive Barker, Michael weaves a tale that takes recreational drug use to a whole new, terrifying level. The book moves at a terrific pace, to the THUMP THUMP THUMP of dance music. And all the time, in the background, there is an elegant, sophisticated evil DJing the entire rave.”
~ John F D Taff, author of Little Deaths
“Fantastic. Epic. I’ve done a lot of drugs, and wrote my share of stories, but never have they both danced together in the darkness such as in Discoredia.”
~ Mark Matthews, author of On the Lips of Children
“Trainspotting meets 28 Days Later. Outstanding!”
~Andrew Lennon, author of A Life to Waste

What you are about to read is not a story. There is no beginning, middle, or end. What follows is nothing more than a series of journal entries involving shadow people, sleep paralysis, and crippling fear. It’s not pretty, it doesn’t follow story logic, and nothing works out well in the end.
You've been warned.

| Red Scare|
by T. R. Pearson
$0.00, 180 pages, 3.8 out of 5.0 (15 reviews), #29 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Travel
From the acclaimed author of A SHORT HISTORY OF A SMALL PLACE and SEAWORTHY comes a wholesale departure -- a comic/horror/romance/fantasy infested with both unsavory American politicians and venomous Venetian lizards. Awash in Pearson’s singular wit, Red Scare tells the headlong story of a public school biology teacher and a National Gallery curator who join forces to thwart the dire consequences of a medieval Italian curse. This novel, though slender, is packed to overflowing with priapic senators, clueless teenagers, dubious art history, clumsy quasi-romantic repartee, garish worldwide bloodletting, corrosive humor, and enough malicious scuttling reptiles to keep you from ever planting your bare feet on a darkened floor again.

The fifth book of the Free Nightmares series. Be the victim of an Ouija board. Most authors would write such a book in a traditional way: a person becomes possessed, an exorcism is performed, the demon is banished, and all is well; a happy ending for everyone.

| So. I Met a Ghost|
by Paul McAvoy
$0.00, 228 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #85 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Teen & Young Adult > Horror
When my parents split up I started drawing pictures of gravestones in a church near my dad’s (I know it is weird, get over it), and here is where I met Beth. But I soon found that Beth was no ordinary girl, but she was in fact a ghost. I am not talking creepy ghost, the kind that puts a curse on you, but just an ordinary person really. I soon learned she was being chased by some nasty piece of work, and I soon realised there was only me who would be able to help her.
Not only was I going to try to save her from her hunter, but also try to help her move on, go into the light, and all that. Not much to ask, seeing as I was a teenager, was it! In the process I would learn that the ‘unknown’ was pretty clear, and that some men can be more evil than anything conjured up by the wildest of imaginations.
So… I met a Ghost is a sometimes creepy, sometimes funny short novel for young adults by author Paul McAvoy. A page-turner… you will not want to draw breath until the last page is read…

The Magi (a Lexington Avenue Express short story - 2,200 words - Strong Language)
The Aryans were never certain. Some of them said it was Casper like the ghost because his skin was so light, but some of the older guys agreed his nickname was Gasper; that's what limey sailors called a cigarette during a big war that ended before most of them were born. The old man in question smoked and coughed constantly. Whatever nickname the Bloods in McAlester called him, the Aryans referred to OKP-101333 as Casper the Gasper and they cut him a wide berth. He was a lifer and everyone knew a graying lifer could be very dangerous.
“We gotta' ditch this damn truck,” the kid with the swastika tattooed on his neck whined.
No shit, Adolph, Casper thought, but he nodded his agreement stoically and rumbled a deep, phlegmy cigarette cough as he steered the big truck carefully down the narrow gravel road.
Until Clovis, New Mexico the third member of the group had parroted Tattoo's every word. Number three was silent now, his shaved head bouncing against the partition that divided the truck's cab from the cargo box. Casper could smell the sweet stench of the black blood oozing into the seat fabric; the parrot would be dead soon.
Tattoo leaned across the dying man and studied the fuel gauge. “This sumbitch ain't gonna' make it much further. We're gonna' have to find us another ride, man, and our pardner here, looks like he's about had it, too.” As Tattoo whined in an exaggerated West Texas drawl, his hands opened the unconscious man's coat and snatched a pack of cigarettes and a police revolver from the pocket of the blood-stained prison coveralls the wounded man was wearing.
Three days before Christmas, the driver-side airbag had deployed when the Oklahoma Department of Corrections van transporting them from a work detail had struck a deer. The van plowed heavily into a ditch beside Highway 4, north of the State Penitentiary in McAlester. Three of them had escaped from the crash site. Eighteen hours later they travelled together down a dead-end gravel road in northern New Mexico; one of them hopeless, one insane, the third quickly bleeding-out.
“Lookie there,” Tattoo whined. “That's a strobe flashin' up ahead. Must be on top'a one of them big microwave towers. They gotta' keep some supplies and stuff in the work sheds at those places, don't ya' think?”
Yeah, maybe they'll be servin' a church supper, too, with a choir and everything, you damn, white fool, Casper thought.
The diesel sputtered for an instant, signaling the fuel tank was almost empty.
“If we can just make it up this hill, we can coast down to the tower,” Tattoo whined, nervously tapping the dashboard with the barrel of the .45 automatic he'd taken from the dead DOT officer in Clovis.
Casper nodded again. This time he had to agree with Tattoo. Whatever is down there, he thought, it's got to be better than what we left behind.
“Look at that!” Tattoo said, spotting the small sign on the gate at the crest of the hill. “Tower KQ74, Cana County District. SHIT, OLD MAN, WE MADE IT! Look at that trailer house down there. Gimme' a minute and I'll have that gate open and we'll pay us a visit to 'ol KQ74."
As he watched Tattoo hack at the chain on the gate with a tire iron, Casper thought about the Clovis, New Mexico weight station. They'd coasted into the DOT scales at 2:00AM, out of fuel, hoping to steal another vehicle and continue traveling west. It was there an armed DOT inspector had spotted their orange prison coveralls as they climbed into the cab of the WT-Express truck. Tattoo had opened fire.
“Get this sumbitch movin'!” Tattoo barked angrily, slamming the door of the truck, interrupting Casper's thoughts. The young man grunted in pain as his thin, purple tongue lapped blood from the gash the broken chain had left on the back of his hand.
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.
