DEAD BY NIGHT
He felt his heart falter, then fail.
The blood in his veins slowed. Movement became difficult then impossible. His consciousness began to fall away and with his failing vision, he watched the world fade and disappear as his last breath left his lungs, a pained wheeze that seeped from deep within his chest.
At that, Miles Goodhall died.
“Mummy? Is Daddy in Heaven?”
For want of a better answer, Helen nodded in agreement. “Yes.”
Satisfied, Megan return to her colouring, scribbling over the lines to turn a black and white picture of a cartoon duck entirely pink. Helen wiped at her eyes, wishing that Michael was there with her.
She would have been surprised to know that he was.
THE LUNAR TICK
The world is my clock.
I don’t have to turn the key to wind the spring to turn the cogs that turn the hands. It just happens. The Earth turns on a tilt, and the physics of the motion wind me up and wind me down, ebb and flow, ebb and flow.
But it isn’t the Earth’s fault.
The moon causes all my problems.
No. That isn’t true.
Being a werewolf causes some problems.
And drug addiction causes others.
Not a good combination of issues.
When there is no more room in Hell, the Devil will lease a spacious double-room with impressive views of the Georgian city of Bath.

Trapped in a secret, deep underground military base, Lilly takes comfort in the arms of a long-term captive there who's like no man she's ever met before. In a world where passion and power reign supreme, he helps her survive in a foreboding environment. When discussions turn to the social agenda playing out in the world above, and the political spin associated with it, he proves himself more brain than brawn. After he reveals secrets hidden in religious texts, the occult, and secret societies, the veil is lifted from Lilly’s eyes.
Working towards a set goal for thousands of years, the global elite and the men behind the curtain, have been following mystery school teachings. Using arcane knowledge encoded into readily available texts, their leading societies, the Freemason's, the CIA, and the Catholic Church's dark agenda has long been to get humanity to believe many falsehoods at a certain point in time. These untruths are currently being championed. Having, for the most part, achieved their goals, the global elite are now ready to execute their agenda—put plans in action. With the clock ticking, Lilly hopes to escape in the nick of time.
Like Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code,” this book includes research, knowledge, and facts, but it’s also controversial and confronting and isn’t suitable for all ages because it’s technically an erotic, paranormal romance. However, the sexual content, an integral part of the story, is limited because of the scope and breadth of material covered.
This tale is perhaps better described as a dark comedy covering many conspiracies. Subjects weaved into this story include human anatomy, climate change, the Federal Reserve, Darwinism, Woman’s Lib, nuclear weapons, False Flags, multiculturalism, religion, mythology, gods and goddesses, and more.

Bill is serious, sure he is right, and has sharp fangs.ACT 1
A toast to our newest full-professor.
(All raise glasses to Jean)
No one deserves it more. Your book measuring the differential effectiveness of contrasting therapies on rape victims is outstanding. May the power and glory lie softly upon your shoulders.
Or is it lay? Never could keep them straight.
Thank you. I’m so lucky to have such decent people as friends. They are hard to find.RALPH
You had something, Johnny?JOHNNY
Yes. I want to bring a guest to our next meeting. A most unusual man who will amaze and delight.BILL

You and Jean were all over that poor guy.JEAN
We were just testing his sainthood. He didn’t pass. I didn’t know human faces could get that red.
Well, you’re not likely to get this guy’s face red. He’s not a theologian, not a philosopher, not a scientist. He’s a shaman, a Brujo from the desert of Sonora.____________________

There comes a time in every person’s life when he or she will inevitably say, ‘I’ll do anything for a better life.’ Or, ‘I wish we could live in a nicer home.’ Or even, ‘I wish I could win lots of money.’ Purely out of desperation, stupidity or just for attention, a person would even go as far as to say, ‘I’d sell my soul to the devil for…,’ unaware of the consequences that may follow.
Jack Richards is the perfect example of someone who is desperate to improve his pathetic excuse for a life. He’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants. He lets slip what’s on his mind late one evening, something which would have been best to have avoided.

“If you don’t wish to be a hot-head, don’t feed your habit. Try as a first step to remain calm and count the days you haven’t been angry. I used to be angry every day, now every other day, then every third or fourth…For habit is first weakened and then obliterated.”
Over the last years, I have occasionally been struggling with writer’s block. It looks like this: I have an unfinished manuscript that I cannot bring myself to complete. When I work on it, I look at one of the many unfinished sections, write half a paragraph – maybe half a sentence, and that is all. I do not know how to proceed. At some point this condition stirred my intellectual curiosity. I was puzzled by the question, which ability I am lacking when I experience writer’s block. After all, I do know the language of my paper and I know how papers in my discipline are supposed to look like. I know the subject matter of my paper well enough. I am sufficiently motivated to get to my desk and start working on the manuscript. Why is it that I cannot write?

Heather Colson has just arrived in Columbus, Ohio, for a rodeo event. She's staying at a Best Western hotel. She's lucky to get a room because there's a high school state cheerleader championship in town and all the other rooms are booked.
Later in the evening, some cheerleaders blast their television next door. Heather walks over and asks them to turn it down. They then blast the television again and start pounding on the wall, so Heather calls the front desk. Then after Heather falls asleep, someone knocks on her door around midnight. When she opens it, a tall cheerleader tells her she ran into her truck. But when Heather goes outside, the girl pulls a knife on her. She orders Heather to take a walk across a snowy field and into the woods. They soon end up down a hill and alongside a culvert, where the two decide to fight.

| The Jug of Death|
by Ms Christina Engela

Unfortunately for Stuart Flane – Captain of the Terran starship Mercury - and his intrepid crew, their latest assignment did not go without a hitch ...but then, the thing was called ‘the Jug of Death‘, and obviously with good reason.
"It’s a funny old ‘verse," Flane thought. Most people who found out a cursed object was responsible for the untimely messy – and unavoidably mysterious deaths of 13 people, would steer the hell clear of it... but for some weird reason, some people seemed to think that owning such a thing was a smart investment – or that it would somehow end well for them!
"The Jug Of Death" is a preview of "Panic! Horror In Space" - a series of sci-fi-horror misadventures in deep space with the crew of the I.S.S. Mercury - which, of all the starships in the elite Terran Space Fleet, is probably the unluckiest ship in history!

What do you do when there are a series of murders that seem unrelated? When the operations room started to investigate multiple murders of a gruesome nature, the pieces of the jigsaw were rather hard to put together. Not only were victims unrelated, but there seemed to be little sense to the trail of destruction the murderer had left behind him. Detective Inspector Ian Thomson and Detective Inspector Shelley Ward and working against the clock as their Chief wants results and wants them now. Can Ian and Shelley discover who the murderer is? Can they link the dots and put together a case that will stick? Since the murders started to happen twenty five years beforehand, it‟s not easy for the police to find motives. Even a profiler brought in to help them throws little light upon who the murderer is. Follow the trail with them and see how the details unfold of a serial killer whose activities seem to make very little sense to anyone, least of all the coroner who is able to put A and B together to come up with the idea that this isn‟t a small scale murder spree. In fact, it‟s one that is changing history. The murderer has a reason and when the reason is found, perhaps they will be able to put the pieces together. Gruesomely real and detailed, the book tells you the process that is taken to try to bring the murderer to justice. However, justice isn‟t always fair. Anxious to be able to close the case, Shelley Ward and Ian Thompson follow the trail and try to step into the shoes of the killer in an attempt to find out where he is likely to strike next time. Only the killer knows although he has given the pair of them hints. Can they unlock the secrets and put an end to a long spree of killing that makes no sense? And will the killer pay for the unhappiness he has caused to so many people? You can only find out by reading the story and taking a leap of faith, hoping that the detectives have what it takes to get the man behind bars and paying for his sins.

Sam wondered why Bobby emailed him when he never answered any of them in the past. He received no more emails since the wave split the state in into two parts.
Sam was curious about whether Bobby went Oregon. He called Bobby's parents about that. His father answered his phone. “Hi Sam.”
“Hi sir, you heard about the big island in the Pacific?”
“Yes, a bad tidal wave. We all survived it here in San Jose.”
“Also, I heard about that and that you didn't evacuate either?”
"Have you heard anything about Bobby?"
"Did you know that I stopped bailing him out of the LA county jail."
“He was annoyed with you about that in one of his emails.”
“He's been emailing you?”
"Yes. Still, he has no email address.”
"I see. Well, police near Oasis called about him stealing a camper-pickup truck south-east of Oasis and a hotel cash drawer in Oakland just before the wave struck. So, he is wanted for that and now he's been missing."
"What about this email he sent you?"
"His last one, he said that he was hitch-hiking to Oregon."
“It seems that he stole that truck to get away from there. It might be of interest of the Oasis Police if you inform them about that email?”
“Right,” and they ended the call.
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.
