When a tragic accident claims the life of a small-town cheerleader, a stunned community mourns a beautiful girl taken all too soon. Caught on the fringes is Wade Shaunson, a clean-cut kid still sorting through the rubble of a lost relationship with the dearly departed.
Wade is haunted by visions of his brief affair with Kiki Malone. He looks back to the moment their eyes met, then ahead to the future they never built together; he even sees into her mind at the moment she died. But in every thought looms the specter of the night he broke her heart, and a sickening secret that could shatter his reputation.
On the night of his sleepy town's biggest football throwdown of the fall, Wade confronts his guilt, his sins and so much more. There is blood, and a harrowing chill, and an eldritch force in the woods. Yet every shock and brutality pales next to what lurks in the soul of an American teenager.
Award-winning writer and filmmaker Adam Bertocci has been praised by Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, The New Republic, GQ, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Back Stage, Broadway World, E!, Maxim, IGN, Wired, Film Threat and more. In his debut short story, he tries his hand at the horror genre—with terrifying results.

Evil comes in many forms. Perpetuated by a violent culture, evil thrives in the cracks of humanity, exposing our flaws and inherent weaknesses. Yet for each instance of evil witnessed throughout the course of history there is an act of light. Of goodness. The world is a dangerous place where the bad things continue to hide even as generations come and go.
Dr. David Freeman knows this fact too well. A successful psychologist, David cannot believe the depth of horror that comes into his quaint offices in Des Moines, Iowa. It is an old nightmare returned to mock his memories. Sitting across from David is a piece of his past that he had long hoped to expunge.
Kristoff Dornz, former Kommandant of Belzac and SS officer, has done horrible things. Untold numbers perished under his command in the summer of 1943. He doesn’t recognize David as he unravels the troubling tale of his life and his need for atonement. Now in his mid 80s, Dornz suffers from the nightmares of Nazi occupied Poland- nightmares he created. All he wishes now is to find peace, and to be rid of the ghosts of his past.
It will take every ounce of willpower David has to overcome his memories of those cold moments in 1943 as Dornz, now going by the alias of Lucien, weaves a complex tale of partial truths and bold lies. David closes his eyes and remembers the day when Dornz began his medical experimentation on Elyse, the love of David’s life. The latent need for revenge, to right old wrongs, and his conscience as a medical professional bound by oath clash as their sessions continue. Here, confronting the demons of his past, David Freeman has a desperate choice to make: either help a patient or become the very monster he sought for so long to destroy.

by Michail Bagiryan
$0.00, 92 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #xx in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Occult
This is the story about God, about the Devil, about the life of Cain in our present days. I base a considerable part of my reflections on the DNA research by Professor Lipton.
Seraphim is a monk who is considered to be the Chosen One. Cain, who lives on the Earth forever, is trying and analyzing Seraphim, and exploring the power of prayer. Their research suggests that prayer affects DNA and blood. People, who pray, do not get sick, which is a proven scientific fact.
The book shows the power of prayer, proven by the scientific research. Through the power of prayer, we can change the structure of our DNA; fight any disease without outside intervention. In addition, the prayer removes all kinds of fear and completely changes our achievements for good. The message of the book is to motivate people to pray.

The evil is beyond what we think: it is in the very explanation of the origin of the Universe and life. Neither the religions of the whole world nor the sciences of our time explain it. What is the origin of this creation? Nobody knows. That is why you have to look for alternative answers. I expose a probable hypothesis, although perhaps it is not true either. But let's be aware that only one worm does not stumble. Let's look for explanations here and there.
First we have to eliminate inequality and human injustices, to then continue with the investigation of how and why the Universe arose.

by JJ Slate

WITH PHOTOS - Author of the bestselling book, "Missing Wives, Missing Lives"
Studies have shown that marriages typically thrive the most in the months after the wedding, a period known as "the honeymoon period."
Not these marriages.
Spousal murder is never acceptable, but newlywed murder seems to be on a completely different level. It is unconscionable to think someone could stand in front of his family and friends, pledging to honor and cherish another person for the rest of his life, and then kill his spouse in cold blood just months, weeks, or even days later. It happens more than you'd think--and, contrary to popular belief, it's not always the husband who acts as the aggressor.
In her third true crime book, bestselling author JJ Slate examines more than twenty true stories of newlywed murders, delving into the past of the victims and aggressors, searching for answers to the question everyone is asking: How does this sort of thing happen? These shocking cases of betrayal and murder might just make you think differently about those five sacred words, "till death do us part."

Lauren Corvidae—Miracle Child—can cure cancer with a touch, but can she save her family and herself?
“A very promising start from a new young author.” - Anika Drew
“Good story with characters that are easy to identify with.” - Charles Helmholt
“An engaging story with many plot twists. You might think you know where the story is going, but find still another unexpected turn.” - Gwendolyn Johnson
A girl is born into our modern world with a miracle touch. She can cure the most grievous wounds and illnesses with the brush of a hand, but a world full of faith may not be ready for miraculous proof.
The Tragedy of Power is a gritty, violent thriller. It’s the first chapter of Lauren’s story and also the story of how the world reacts to her confounding existence.
While Lauren is seemingly burdened with divine purpose, her young life offers her no relief from the moral complexities her abilities bring her way. She could become a hero, but right now she’s just a child under immense pressure. Can she find a way to use her power for good and still be free?
Fair warning to the reader: this book is not all action, violence and excitement. Alcoholism, abuse, depression, self-harm, religious persecution, and manipulation are among the demons Lauren faces.
You'll find the Tragedy of Power gripping and hard to put down.

Something Strange This Way Comes!
We have been told, from the earliest days of our childhood, to be wary of strangers.
From a fear of strangers who stalk their prey in their homes as darkness descends, and one mother's valiant attempt to protect her family, to an eerie encounter of two strangers in a seemingly innocent chance meeting on a lonely rural bus stop bench, and to an awkward transient who needs to avoid eye contact with the strangers he encounters lest they fall victim to his death curse, all three stand-alone shorts in this collection involve unexpected strangers meeting.
Join Mark Leslie as he introduces you to Mary, to Rupert and to Peter; three people that he calls friends, but folks that are still strangers to you, and you should be weary of. At the end of the ficional jaunt, he also shares the inspiration and story behind each tale.
If you enjoy weird and strange Twilight Zone, Outer Limits or Black Mirror styled dark and eerie tales, then you're sure to enjoy this collection of short tales that run about 12,000 words.

These stories were dreamed up, thought about, written, and finalized during a time where I was misdiagnosed with an illness. I was on many medications at the time. Once things were squared away, I was removed from all of the prescriptions. These medicines made me experience many weird things, including watching the walls bleed. They made things appear that weren’t there, like the Shadow Girl story - something that actually happened to me. Mind, Then Move was an actual nightmare that I woke from. At times, these medicines would put me into deep sorrow, and at other times there was a deep instilled in me of things around me that simply were not there.
Thank you for reading my 2018 Halloween special release. I hope you like these stories as much as I liked putting them together.
Have a fearful read.

Settings range from 17th-century France in the heart of the werewolf trials to the resurrection of the Aztec black arts to a medicine man's revenge in the Old West to the depths of Hell to mob vengeance and modern day necromancy to sociopathic serial killers and on to alien worlds in the distant future.

"brilliantly descriptive piece on man´s apparently unstoppable descent, literally into hell,…"

My people fell. My city burned. And I was sold.
Born a noble, I never expected to be bound, chained and stuck in a cage.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I suppose it doesn't matter. No one cares how a slave feels.
Though there is something strange about this man that draws me to him.
In the wake of losing everything, could I have possibly found something better?

Polybius was designed to be a test, and that's what it still is. We still keep data on the game, and on the people who play it, and sometimes the data still comes in handy, I’m told, more importantly, some of the people who prove to get high scores on the game, folks who ace the test so to speak often come in very, very handy indeed for certain top secret projects. That’s why the project has never been shut down.

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.
