Not many books can make me laugh aloud. But I can't help giggling at regular intervals reading this series. Slapstick, childish and toilet humor. But delivered with a stroke of genius. My favourite read for a long time. - Verified Purchase Review
SOMETIMES, EVEN THE BEST VAMPIRES CAN EARN THEMSELVES A GOOD SMACK...
Sid Tillsley, forty-six, is an alcoholic benefit fraudster from Middlesbrough. He’s sexist, homophobic, overweight, extremely lazy, and a dogger. However, one thing sets him apart from the rest of his fellow Northerners…
He can kill vampires with a single punch.
Meanwhile, in Northeast England, a monster has arisen, one that doesn’t subscribe to Tits magazine. A vampire beast stalks the Yorkshire moors, mutilating and destroying everything in its path. The vampire elders fear the Firmamentum has reappeared–a phenomenon that occurs every few millennia when a human and a vampire are born, ultimately powerful and destined to oppose each other.
The Coalition, a council of vampires and humans mandated to hide the existence of the creatures of the night, believe Sid to be the Bellator, the chosen one destined to fight the vampire beast. Sid finds himself the centre of human and vampire attention, but he’s more concerned about drinking down the pub with his mates and trying to end his two year drought with the ladies. Besides, Sid has more important things to worry about. The Benefit Office is on to him, and if they see him fighting immortal vampire monsters from Hell, they may take away his disability benefits.
This is the new, revised Sid Tillsley Chronicles, re-released in October 2014! If you already have, or have read the first editions, this 2nd revision contains rewrites and more material!
“Sid is hilarious, entertaining and, strangely enough, charming. Maybe charming is too strong a word...”

‘Are you doing what you want to do…or are you simply another piece of a darkened puzzle? Your own actions predetermined by powers higher than you?’
Six short stories.
Darkened Soul: Pieces of a Darkened Puzzle explores these questions as the futuristic dystopian world introduced in Darkened Soul presents itself in this new collection of tales.
In the novella, “Pieces of a Darkened Puzzle,” the young witches Aidan and Serena Worthhill live a life in hiding in the city-state of California. However when the teens dive into the secrets of their past, they unearth revelations about their family. Not only does the truth potentially aim the evil Nosferatu at them, but there are far-reaching consequences that lead to tragedy.
The world above and the world below unfold in the short stories that follow. In “She Walks in Shadows,” Jonathan and Ursula, the Nosferatu from Darkened Soul, engage in a game of one-upmanship that take a deadly turn when they encounter the ancient Titania. In “One or the Other,” Angela Hillworth’s desire to be a normal mother clashes with her witch heritage as witches are hunted, forcing her to make a heartbreaking decision. Then in “Where Were You When…,” a reporter’s need for a scoop results in her discovering an underworld…and the people who guard it…
Come into a world where fantasy, sci-fi, and horror meet. A world where the question arise…who pulls the strings: Nosferatu, human, witch…or someone else.
As above…so it is below…

$0.00, 780 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #112 in Dark Fantasy Horror
Don’t buy this book.
No, seriously. Don’t buy this book. Whilst we publishers of this book cannot and do not claim that it is possible for books to be ‘cursed’, we still advise you not to buy this book. Not that this book is cursed. Nope. Not at all. Even though the last five people who bought a copy of it have vanished mysteriously, leaving behind only a small spatter of blood and a vague smell of brimstone.
Still, we advise you not to buy this book.
It’s a very, very nasty book, full of very horrible stories. Stories like RETURN TO RETURN TO OZ, UNDERCURRENT, OLD HAG, CTHULHU DOESN’T DANCE, BLOOD ORGIES OF THE WHORES OF DRACULA, INSOMNIA, THE ROAD TO KYOTO, and many other terrible tales that will give you sleepless nights. And you want a full night’s sleep, don’t you? Better off like that.
So yeah, don’t buy this book.
Also, if you’re feeling particularly humanitarian, you should know that this book comprises the entire omnibus of the horror writings of Justin MacCormack. So really, you should probably buy the separate books instead. That way the author gets more royalties. Really, he needs another gold-plated swimming pool. So another reason that you shouldn't buy this book.
If you need another reason, just know that this book clocks in at 780 pages full of spine-tingling horror, which is far too many for any respectable book. You certainly don’t need a book the size of a doorstop, or a small brick. The only conceivable use for such a book would be to put it in a sock and hit people with, and that’s really not particularly socially acceptable behavior.
Not to mention the curse. Oh wait. No, forget that. No curse here.
Look, I’m begging you here. You can’t see it, but I’m down on my knees, right here in my office, as I’m typing this to you. Please, why aren't you listening to me? What, you think this is some kind of a joke? I’m desperate here! I can feel them… the things from the pages… oh god, I can feel their breath on my neck… please, if you’re reading this, I’m begging you, DON’T BUY THIS BOOK!!!

… “Then she started sprinting to the edge of the field before the ‘Lovers walk’. I could see on this path that there were two young people running to get out of the storm. The witch pointed her arms forward before yelling ‘Beelzebub, bring down the tree. Beelzebub, bring down the earth.’ As she shouted I saw the hilltop where the tree was tear apart. It was as if giant invisible hands had torn the earth apart. The tree came crashing down upon that young farmer he had no chance. Then the witch screamed out ‘Beelzebub close her mouth’. We know that since then the young farmer’s wife has not been able to speak. Then I knew that I had witnessed the work of the devil through that young witch. I was totally shaken but then I ran back into town to fetch the constable.”

| The Secret World on the Other Side of Mind|
by Sudhir Mittal
$0.00, 452 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (2 reviews), #164 in Occult Horror
Forget all that you know about your world; especially when the world was made round only to keep you wandering endlessly. Even though sometimes you might look racing up, but you end up merely in a loop. Without an exception, for winning the game of your apparent life in real sense, knowing its all secrets beforehand is indispensable.
Rubert, our protagonist, is a simple next door living guy. He doesn't see an iota of dark webs around his 'Apparent World', unless one day, he starts hearing some occult voices in his dreams. He gets intimidated by the voices which insist him to venture out and meet a white bearded master on the Himalayan peaks. The very following day he agrees to it, though in his dream only, lo! His employer happens to commission him on a new engineering project in the same mountains.
Midst the shivering cold, not many hours have passed after Rubert arrived in mountains, he encounters a strange old man in astounding circumstances. This chap turns out to be no ordinary man but the same advanced Himalayan mystic, who can perform any miracle of the world. He is such a master that he already knows Rubert's mind in entirety. After suspecting in the beginning, Rubert finally submits in and grows immense faith in his host. For four successive days the former visits the cave of master on the hilltop. During this time, master excites Rubert about the 'Secret World' and narrates to latter innumerable maxims, experiences, experiments, analogies and also the unheard before stories. Before the adieu, out of great love, the master bestows Rubert three things - (i) the capability of invoking a 'divine vision'; (ii) a miraculous wooden box which could produce enlightening text written on the green leaves; and (iii) the unfathomable knowledge of 'eternal truth' in the secret world.
Later on in the life of Rubert, everything keeps on happening strictly as per master's plan. After finishing the engineering project on mountains, Rubert returns into his apparent world and continues living with his beautiful wife, cute daughter, loving mother, conspiring colleagues in his office and also a tyrant moody boss there. Although generally the life was supposed to be the same, but it is no longer that way for Rubert. Now he has got the mystical ability to watch out his 'Apparent world' and 'Secret world' both, that too simultaneously. Gradually he attains the capability of talking to and even seeing his master through the telepathy. Also through the miraculous wooden box which he possesses now, he can read his master's messages any time. And not only this, by way of invoking his divine vision, he enjoys another great advantage of watching eternal truth of the entire world around him. Given this all, his apparent world has never remained the same.
Running through the innumerable experiences, experiments and expounding by master, finally Rubert learns to conquer his 'Apparent World'. In his fulfillment, the mysterious mission of master also completes successfully.
'The Secret World.....' is lot more than a book for several reasons. Most figuratively it doesn't preach dogmas upon the reader; rather it sticks to the ground practicalities of modern life. This novel, which chiefly revolves around Rubert and Master, never imposes orthodoxy upon the readers. Sudhir Mittal's writing etiquette has never been in that way. After meeting master on the hills, when Rubert returns into his apparent world, the whole story takes a tantalizing turn. Written beautifully in 'Flashback' mode, this book puts up the intrinsic facets of householders' lives in superb clarity.
An important note at last! This book might reveal certain mystical experiments which the readers may tempt to try upon themselves, though it will be absolutely safe and easy for them. In this way, not only Rubert enjoys the 'Secret world', but you also do that greatly.
| Saving Malaya (The chosen ones series Book 1)|
by Victor Sanchez
$0.00, 154 pages, 3.7 out of 5.0 (24 reviews), #250 in Teen & Young Adult Horror eBooks
Malaya has escaped into a world of exotic dancing and drugs, trying to hide from her ability to see into the future. With a series of murders amongst her she's forced to deal with her gift before she becomes the next victim.
I could see my dad sipping his steamy coffee as he drove his usual path to work. The morning was unusually dark and the roads glistened from the rain reflecting off the oncoming traffics. The amusing voice of the early morning radio host discussing home remedies accompanied him on his trip. The dream was peaceful until the sound of a large deer crashing into the windshield interrupted his routine. His coffees rapidly found protection on the passenger seat when the antlers impaled my father’s chest. The overwhelming cry of bones breaking and the car swerving out of control completely overpowered the radio. My father closed his eyes and whispered “I’m so sorry Malaya,” even though I was miles away from him.
Right before the car was completely devoured by a massive oak tree the dream transformed and I could see the seven year old girl I used to be. She had awakened from our shared nightmare. I remember that moment like it was yesterday. Her face was barely recognizable and her stringy brown hair was clinging to her face as she ran to find our father. She was wearing my favorite pink nightgown that made me feel like a princess running through castle halls. I remembered how I couldn’t live without that gown. My father was standing near the door gathering his final items, as he always did before he left for work.
“Daddy, please don’t leave!” I cried, holding tightly to his sleeves, standing in the way of his exit. He could sense the agony I was experiencing as I tried explaining my dream as best as an eight year old could. He always listened attentively, never making me feel like a freak. He knelt down in front of me, and wiped my tears with the handkerchief he always kept in his breast pocket. His eyes were comforting, reassuring me that everything would be ok. They looked exactly how I remembered.
The house was quiet and the only audible noises were the echoing of my cries. I still remembered how he whispered in my ear “its ok baby, nothing is going to happen to me.” His embrace made me feel like it was just a dream. I could hear his voice like I was still in that moment, “It's just a nightmare.” My crying slowed down with the comforting tone of his words. My father hugged and kissed me again before he finally left, forever. “I’ll be back, I promise,” he softly said. An unfulfilled promise was the last words I ever heard my father say.
The scenery rapidly changed as police officers showed up with the news of his death. I could see the little version of myself fall into my mother’s arms crying as reality exploded in front of me. Even at such a young age I wanted her to forgive me for not doing more. I told her everything I dreamt and never wanted to dream again. By fourteen, I was heavily sedated and spent most of my evenings sitting by the window praying for my father’s return, he never did. The medication I was given made it difficult for me to differentiate the line between reality and fantasy. My dreams began feeling real and life was a place I wanted to escape. My mother could barely look at me or get me to talk and my twin sister Alice stared at me like I was a lost soul. She was right, I was definitely lost.

Gothic Romance. What is Gothic Romance? It is real life in its extremes like this story of Susie. Most everyone’s has in their life intensity of emotion, reason, and spiritual experiences, plus violence, fear and even terror. There is love found, lost, and regained. There are family, marriage, work, travel, and dreams. Gothic Romance is my favorite because it is my life and yours. We can experience it through reading and learn from it. We can vicariously experience its triumphs and tragedies. Welcome to Gothic Romance or did I say our life?
I am Susie in my late 30’s now, but I have to remember my gothic romance from the beginning.
I was a voluptuous virgin with extraordinarily physical endowments. My pure personality of spirit, intellect, and emotions were as beautiful as the promise itself. I was winsome but self-willed. Would I hear the Call, make a full commitment to love the Divine more than anyone or anything and enjoy His daily Shepherding and Blessing, or manage her life my way with satan always having the last word? Could I ever get his foot off my neck? My hero soulmate Jim is divided between his loyalty to Church ministry and his deep love for me. Does he compromise his even deeper love for Church ministry and fully include me in his life? Will Jim ever find a way to commit to me with his heart more than his Church work? I wished, hoped, even prayed sometimes until finally at the very last moment when all hope was gone I gasped for air through my tears.

On the outskirts of town,
Far away from civilization, someone makes a call to 911. He speaks in a devilish tone and hoarse breath; he wants to be heard. He blurts out horror stories and cries. In the background, things can be heard. Rattling. Scraping.
At first, the operator thinks it's some kind of joke – a silly prank. A flash on the screen makes her think twice. They’ve been getting calls from the same number. On further investigation, things get weirder. People have been making complaints about occult horror in an area where there’s no electricity – in a town long forgotten. The FBI gets involved. They want to check the area out immediately but don't have any personnel in the vicinity. It's in the middle of nowhere. They make a call to the only law in that area, to Sheriff West, and ask him to scout the area out. They advise him to use precaution; something is not right.
Sheriff West, a man that’s lost his spark, receives the information while dangling his legs over his desk. He scratches his head and calls in his only deputy, Martinez. He doesn’t like Martinez very much – in fact, he hopes he leaves his office just like the other one did. He shrugs and tells Martinez to get in the car. It’s time to go check the place out.

In Barthamos, there is only one way for an orphaned human to get ahead: by entering the annual military competition, a deadly challenge where all species compete to earn a placement within the nation’s army. A highly selective military, the nation’s defenders’ have primarily consisted of Meticians, an aggressive species with extraordinary strengths. A mere human, Alena has spent her life training for the skills test.
Tane, the king of Barthamos and leader of the military, is an exceptional Metician that takes great pleasure in expanding his power. When he hears rumor of one survivor from a powerful and extinct group of summoners, he'll do whatever it takes to bind her to him.
Alena finds her life drastically changed when she goes from struggling to survive to becoming the king’s mate. Trapped with no means of escape, can she realize her power in time to win her freedom? Or will she be forced to live out her life as the king’s breeder?
Warning: This story contains graphic scenes, rape, and violence. This story is intended to give the reader mixed emotions and take them on a journey in which they have no idea what will happen next.
Was she standing in the room with the king?
She felt as if she was going to fall to the ground. She knew it was him from the pictures scattered around the city honoring him as their protector. He was supposed to be the most powerful Metician in history. Well, at least, that was the message spread around town. Standing across from him made Alena believe it though. His power filled up the room to the point it was almost suffocating.
“I don’t understand.”
She said, knowing she probably sounded ignorant but had no idea the protocol in this situation. How had things changed so fast? What was she even supposed to do in this circumstance?
She heard his deep chuckle reverberate throughout the room as he put the cup back on the table and began to stride towards her. She couldn’t stop herself from taking a step back as he moved so close that she could smell his musky scent.
“I asked what your name is.”
She swallowed in fear as she looked up into those cool, emotionless eyes. His expression made her feel as if her body was freezing over, unable to do anything except stare helplessly into those piercing eyes.
“I am Alena, your highness.”
“Alena,” he repeated, one of his hands coming up to brush lightly against her cheek causing her to shiver in response.
“Well Alena, you are going to become my mate.”

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.
