After a few years it was discovered that the ‘Butchers’ (name given to those infected with the fungal infection) were constantly evolving in strength and knowledge therefore becoming a threat to all humanity because if not dealt with, they might find a way to travel to other parts of the world and doom every living creature. 10 000 soldiers were sent to Zanzibar to completely eradicate the butchers. Unfortunately all the soldiers were never heard from again after two days of arrival into the island.

In the evening light of the setting of the western sun, all could witness the tantalizing glittering prizes of polished gold and silver, gems and jewelry, shining magnificently like a beacon of hope.
It was as if the mountain itself called and beckoned all to come and feast themselves upon the riches within.
It was widely published the cave was uninhabited, for it was newly born and unexplored.
A company of hearty adventurers was quickly assembled and prepared for a glorious excursion, promising rich reward. Before any other could muster a company to take the prizes within, five hearty adventurers eagerly volunteered, impatient to get to the mountain before any other. There were neighboring cities, and so it was only a matter of time before this opportunity would pass them by. If they acted now, the riches of this excursion would not only economically secure Bryton on the map, but would promise a life of ease for the five who staked claim to the treasure hoard within the cave.
The treasure was free for the taking!

In December 1900, three lighthouse keepers vanished without trace from the remote Scottish island of Eilean Mor.

An emergency relief crew was sent to man the lighthouse, and at the end of their month-long duty, they resigned from their posts, never to speak of what they had experienced.

In the present, a group of environmental researchers arrives to observe the wildlife. While exploring the lighthouse, now deserted, one of the team discovers a manuscript written by one of the relief keepers, a man named Alec Dalemore. As a sudden storm cuts off their escape, the researchers come to realise that Dalemore wrote the manuscript as a warning to all who would come after him -- a warning of something ancient and powerful and strange beyond imagining…

The Lighthouse Keeper is a supernatural tale based on the Flannan Isles mystery, one of the greatest unsolved enigmas in maritime history.

London Macabre: A Novel of Fantastical Victorian Terrors
by Steven Savile
$0.00, 420 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #43 in Occult Horror

"Savile has a talent for finding beauty in the macabre" The Guardian

"The thrills never stop!" The Times

It begins innocently enough, with the death of a prostitute in Bedford Square, London. She isn’t the first ’flower girl’ to die and she won’t be the last, not now the killer had a taste for it.

The man, Nathaniel Seth, is one of the Brethren, a shadow society of occult dabblers and black magickers who hide away in the darkest parts of the city, in corners where they could not be seen by polite society. Little did Seth know that his own life was only hours from ending, his flesh to be taken as host for a daemonic entity clawed all the way out of hell’s pit in the centre of the hollow earth because Seth himself breached the Catamine Stair. Now things are afoot. Strange things. The lions of Trafalgar have fulfilled their prophecy, climbing down from the plinths around Lord Nelson’s column to defend the city. The daemon is out, stalking tender prey through the gaslit streets, meat markets, fish stalls and slaughter houses of Whitehall. He has a taste for women, though not ordinary women. These women are different. Special. They may look like whores but they have the blood of angels flowing in their veins. If he can kill enough of them, bathing in their innocent blood, then the daemonic Seth believes he can open the ancient Ald Gate--one of the seven great gates of London--the last gate to Eden, and go home, even if it means tearing London herself apart.

A group of stedfast men stand in the daemon’s way, led by Fabian Stark, a man himself doomed to die before even the first die is cast, and each of them cursed in their own way: Dorian Carruthers, Haddon McCreedy, Eugene Napier, Anthony Millington, and Brannigan Locke. The Grayfriar’s Gentleman’s Club.

Full Moon Cleaners: By Fair Means or Foul
by James Nolan
$0.00, 306 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (2 reviews), #15711 in Occult Fiction
My name is Faith Jordan. I clean up crime scenes after the police, CSI, and the dead have gone home, and faithless, dark places where the dead, and other creatures, linger on.
When I was twelve, my mother died during an exorcism gone wrong. If you’re thinking Linda Blair, levitating beds, projectile vomit, and spontaneous flesh wounds, don’t. It was worse. Because it was real. No Hollywood special effects. Just a charismatic priest that my mother shouldn’t have trusted. Believing he saw the devil in my mother’s eyes, the priest tried to scratch him out with his pale fingers. Ash Shannon, a former priest who left the priesthood when he fell in love with my mother, burst into the church and tried to stop him. Ash was too late.
I made it a point to learn about exorcism rites. And biohazard bags. And other things that go bump in the night. When I grew up, I opened a crime scene cleanup biz called FULL MOON CLEANERS. My main responsibility is to thoroughly and discreetly mop up after someone or something dies violently, to restore a scene to what it looked like before the violent death. I am daily exposed to nasty human blood-borne diseases and nasty inhuman viruses like vampire, zombie, and the rarer werewolf virus.
The crime scenes I’m currently cleaning smack of werewolf and my business partner, Eddy, has a pathological fear of dogs. So I’ve involved Val Starr, an animal forensics expert who heads up an animal rescue SWAT team, who knows a thing or two about howling, hairy beasts.
Ash, the demon profiler, is back in my life. He came back because he thinks I need protection from a big, bad demon who is tracking an ancient grimoire and killing people in an attempt to become a werewolf the likes of which the world has never seen—the demon he believes was involved in my mother's death. Oh, and I may have been infected by the werewolf virus too. As Ash says, we'll take it one full moon at a time….

Angels fall but never die.

Vesta Valley, California, a region world-renowned for its hundreds of vineyards, has also been notorious for dark phenomena. Beyond acres of grapevines, sits the Meadow of Dead Angels, an untouched land with reported sightings of bizarre creatures, people burning, people flying, and—most famously—a crazed woman who had been eating her toddler son alive. Of course, many claim the tales are mere campfire stories and urban legends, internet “PulpDummies.”

Following the sudden death of her mother, Abigail Munro grieves alone, spending much of her time drinking and popping pills or wandering aimlessly in her campervan. During this time of despair, she encounters the eccentric “Top Hat Man,” who convinces her to seek her mother in the Meadow of Dead Angels. Desperate for healing, she travels to the cursed grounds, accompanied by her close circle of friends.

On this impromptu camping trip, Abigail and her friends learn the truth about the land, as they become the prey of an otherworldly evil. If they hope to escape, the group must uncover the source and macabre history of the vile entities plaguing them.

Unless something poisons the soil beyond redemption; then only decay survives: no creature or bird comes by, no plant will grow, In such a place, unchanged through the passing of time hate can fester in isolation; memory can endure as strong as reality, keeping it waiting; until unsuspecting, its victim happens by. Can some sin can transcend time, reaching through lust and hate, into the future. Can the undead take the place of new life to live again, this time forever

The sequel to Bill Smith and the Haunted Escapologist. Jokin’ Jake has as good as admitted he was trying to kill the Great Gonzini, otherwise known as Eric Thompson by sabotaging the props in his escapologist act. The trouble for the local representative of the police force who arrested him is who is going to believe an admission of guilt provoked by a possessed medium at a séance? And Jokin’ Jake has employed a very expensive smartarse Barrister who is set to make his name with a very public trial and by proving it was all just a publicity stunt. And who is giving the evidence? The medium or the Voodoo Witch that possessed her? And why is Jokin’ Jake seemingly content to be in prison awaiting trial? Could it be the series of murders of people connected to him? And then there is the attempt on his life while in prison, apparently by the prison nurse who was supposed to be cutting his toenails. Bill Smith assists the redoubtable and phlegmatic Chief Inspector Williams as he continues his enquiries and finally Jokin’ Jake is brought to trial with somewhat unexpected results. And Rose Primrose the only genuine medium that Bill Knows (and doesn’t believe in psychic powers anyway) generally makes things tricky by consulting the astral plane.

Top 5 Scariest stories from ancient Japanese history
by Deep Read
$0.00, 8 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #116 in 15-Minute Literature & Fiction Short Reads
The truth is, we can’t help ourselves when it comes to peering back through the lens of history--searching for tragic tales of intrigue, adventure--and unbridled historical horror--because let’s face it. There is a reason why the ancient island nation of Japan has cultivated such a rich history and lore which is revered the world over and that's because, pound for pound--Japanese History is jammed to the rafters with more ghosts, spirits and unbound ancient warriors than you can shake a bamboo stick at.

Number 5

Number 5--The Divine Wind And this one, in particular, is such a tale of historical significance--that we just have to talk about it, purely from an etymological perspective. Because you know that we all love words, right? Well, for those of you that know the term Kamikaze actually translates to Divine Wind in Japanese.

Which, is pretty metal anyway--but the actual reason behind that is something else entirely. Now, over in the rich and intricate history of Asia, the Mongol Empire are a pretty big deal--although they are inexplicably tied more so to the ancient kingdom of China, than Ancient Japan. However, that is not to say that the Japanese didn't have their own Mongol Horde to face down--it’s just--well, something incredibly interesting happened.

And not only once. But twice. Let me explain. In 1274--Kublai Khan of the Mongol Empire sent a massive navy to conquer Japan--with an estimated 30 thousand to 40 thousand men, made up of Chinese and Korean warriors, as well as the highly feared Mongol Troops. The navy set off in the Autumn of that year--harrying the northern coastal islands of Kyushu. However, once the main fleet arrived and began to anchor in Hataka Bay--as the legend goes, a force of nature struck. A Divine Wind.

Barry had heard the rumors: monsters lived in Gloomwood; people who went in didn’t come out; something supernatural controlled Gloomwood. They were myths. Gloomwood was nothing but a patch of dense forest. Forests don’t hurt people.
Now two teenagers, young people who knew how to take care of themselves in the forest, were lost in Gloomwood. All he had to do was go in, find them, and bring them out. Fine. So, why were Barry and the rest of the search party afraid to enter Gloomwood? Why was Alan frightened of the snakes he knew would be hibernating, or Ned, an experienced hunter, terrified by the thought of encountering a bear? Why was Barry sure the forest would close in around him and crush him? Were they irrational fears, or was Gloomwood as deadly as the legends claimed?

What Readers Are Saying About Ashdurton -
***** A perfect picture of the darker side of rural life.
***** We know that there is something nasty and not quite right in this story but we are not quite sure what will be revealed as the author masterfully misdirects our attention until the full macabre truth of the story is revealed.
***** One of my favourite films is the ‘Wickerman’ and this had a similar mood to it for me. Highly recommended!
***** Fantastic clever descriptions, readable, engaging, educational .... I won't be stopping in some farmer's caravan from now on. Clever twists in the story and brilliant dark humour.

The Night Shift Scary Story
by Deep Read
$0.00, 4 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #2366 in 15-Minute Literature & Fiction Short Reads
I don’t usually hold back when it comes to talking about my job which was working security at the sub-level of a local hospital. You’d be surprised to know how common break-ins were at that place which usually ended up being a couple of junkies trying to get high on some of the weird chemicals that were being kept in the labs.

It started out as a regular graveyard shift at work but I’ll lead in with a curious backstory regarding the doors that led to the morgue. In order to keep the place more sanitized, they had recently installed sliding doors that would automatically open if someone passed in front of them thus removing the need to touch any handles or doorknobs and prevent anyone from leaving the doors open by accident.

In the blink of an eye, it's time to die.

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


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 Magazine

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

​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.
