Seventeen-year-old Kella O’Malley is living through the apocalypse. Maybe.
She’s definitely running from feral cannibals.
When a pandemic begins mutating humans into killers during her spring break in Georgia, Kella joins with a group of teens and twenty-somethings to carry precious CDC data north on the Appalachian Trail. With no cell phones and no clue how far the mutation spreads, their only hope is to stay ahead of the “Hyenas” and hike faster than the world can end.
“The end times are not what you were expecting,” Kella writes in the shelter logbook along the way. “Be prepared for a lot of stomach growling. And a serious lack of condiments.”
“Also, take note: Cities overrun by feral human cannibals do not make for great spring break destinations. But on the bright side, it’s very unlikely now that boredom is what will kill you.”
“Falling in love is terrifying. It ranks somewhere between murder hornets and being eaten alive by Hyenas.”
Apocalypse Thoughts is a Young Adult novel about possible love, possible zombies, and a definite shortage of coffee during the possible end times.

Second Edition with expanded content.
Five missing years, an unexplained mark between his eyes and a brutal and barren childhood had not prepared Tom Bradon for his destiny but here it was and it had him by the short hairs; become a wizard and save the Earth or loose everything and die.
Tom Bradon had come a long way from his early years in an orphanage run by a fanatical religious order where he had been repeatedly accused of and punished for using magic and consorting with evil spirits in his daily life: something, to his knowledge, he had never done. Now, as an adult, he was an archeologist, a college professor, and the leader of an expedition to determine if a recently discovered planet was civilization's fabled home planet - Earth. He felt truly at home on this new planet. A feeling of rightness had enveloped him from the moment he set foot on its lush green fields and ran his fingers through the clear running brooks. Little did he realize, he was home and he was not who he thought he was. Those first five missing years of his life and that little scar between his eyes that has turned into a five pointed star since arriving on the planet, had never been explained but now will become the key to his true identity, his true purpose and his future. He will have to confront the dissolution of everything he thought he knew about his world and everything he believed about himself in order to leave behind his disastrous childhood and develop into the wizard he was destined to be. He must save himself, TanLa, the ex-slave who foresees their joined destiny, and the very Earth itself from Kan-No, the non-corporeal evil presence that brought Earth's civilization down four thousand years ago and still reigns supreme.

The Big Squidheaded Guy Who's Not Cthulhu is back--and this time, it's really, really personal because the monster who's out to destroy him is his own brother! Twenty years after Krakenstein and Magenti saved humanity from itself, the giant monster battles are still going on. Towering "bug lady" Magenti may have disappeared of late, but Krakey is still patrolling the world. Tailed by the Moray 2 stealth sub, which is captained by none other than longtime Krakenstein "human friend" Shea Sanders, the titan isn't able to stop the latest problem by himself: Nefarious Evostar and its mysterious leader Delta have kidnapped Dr. Palmer Xane, a cutting edge nanotech scientist, along with over a dozen of his brilliant disciples. And they've also sprung Ult Shepperton, career confidence man, from prison to guide their nanobot titan, a "cloud" of trillions of nanos that can assume any form Ult wants--and Ult is looking for whatever it takes to end his nerdy do-gooder giant monster sibling, because a yearly festival in the former Max Shepperton's honor featuring hippie girls wearing that tentacled mug on T-shirts have pushed him over the edge.
First in a brand new trilogy of Krakenstein adventures, this and the next two shift focus people-wise by adding three new characters front and center: Nestor "Shag" Lander, a sharp-tongued and more than capable soldier of fortune; Rhone Ferris, star of her own "world mysteries investigation" TV series; and young Jona Sanders, Shea's daughter by Moray captain Bryn Harker...who was lost in the pivotal battle for Wasp Island. Shag, Rhone and Jona are gonna have to jump right in deep, as they've been tasked with rescuing the abducted scientist-engineers from Evostar's heavily fortified and defended private island in the Aleutians. All the thrills, chills and fun of the Krakenstein Chronicles - Krakenstein vs. Koalatron, Revenge of Krakenstein and Bride of Krakenstein - return in yet another wild ride into a reality filled with noble scientists, ruthlessly ambitious billionaires, cutting edge tech...and all-American daikaiju!

Imagine being sent on a time-travel mission expecting to arrive in a certain period of time and finding yourself in a very different era—a major period in the history of the United States. Imagine finding yourself with people totally unfamiliar with things you’ve been accustomed to all your life: your skills, foods, views on sanitation, means of travel, kinds of recreation and even your vocabulary. Imagine, too, that despite your advantage over the people you meet in history, you find yourself learning as much from them as they learn from you. Whether you’re a time-travel aficionado or a lover of historic novels, you won’t be disappointed with Mission in Time.

Father, the Artificial Intelligence tasked with ensuring the safety of the ark flotilla and the human embryos and gametes aboard, named this new world Takali, and he terraformed it until it could sustain human life.
Jonathan was a college student, studying to be a librarian.

Jonathan viewed Father as nothing more than an AI, who seldom spoke to his organic children.
However, after a chance encounter with Father at his local church, Jonathan's life changed forever. He suddenly found himself intertwined in the deep political and religious affairs of Takalian politics, all because of the insistence of Father, who saw great potential for Jonathan to carry out his ambitions. With Takalian civilization rapidly changing around him, Jonathan needs to navigate an unfamiliar world, all while making sure that the changing course of events does not lead Takali into utter ruin.

Unknown to them, rebel, dreamer, Space Force Sergeant “Jax” Jagger and select black crew members plan to seize the vessel for themselves. Their goal—to jet on out of the solar system and found their own planet.
But there’s trouble—Jax’s romantic interest, super-smart biochemist Sharla Brown is along for the ride and wants none of this and the military isn’t playing either. If Jax and his crew are to escape, they will have to outrun Space Force’s fastest interceptors and once out in the Far Reaches face threats unimaginable. But all of this is worth the gamble. Because if they can’t get reparations on Earth, they’ll be taking them in space!

He had absolutely no idea why she was there instead of his girlfriend who was also his current receptionist/paralegal. After coaxing a very short explanation out of her, loud enough for him to actually hear, the surprises just kept coming. Some, he found, were actually quite nice. But others, definitely not so much. Regardless, Penny is far more than what he thought initially, and as the two begin to get to know each other, he finds she is turning him into just as much of a prepper as she is. She also realizes...and resents...the country's march towards a police surveillance state. So, Horatio decides to ponder those first thoughts she offered to him, and any additional ones he could get her to share with him, because even those first thoughts she shared with him were worth far more than any Penny coin.

*INKD is a Prophecy disguised as Fiction about the miracles, dangers and saving grace of 3D printers. The story gives you a glimpse of our lives in the present and future with 3D printers in Oregon, known in the near future as the rebel tattoo state for unregistered tattoos.
Several scientists and software engineers get kidnapped and INKD for transport. Rose, our beautiful redheaded IRA bomber joins forces with French and American families to rescue them. She meets her French boyfriend Jean Pierre in England after she bombs a café with him in it, for the first but, not last time. Hold on to your seat belts as she arrives in Portland, Oregon.
At present, in 2014, the reality is the 3D printers are here to stay. Guns can be printed, houses under 5k have been printed, food, cars, chocolate can be printed, customized makeup from a 3D printer by MINK; even human organs have been and will be printed.
In the very near future the 3D printers will provide food, shelter, and sustain us. Millions will be displaced, billionaires will be created. Some of the 3D printer companies listed will make owning stock in Apple or Microsoft back then and now look like kindergarten spare change compared to what is about to happen.

Laura Maverik is an orphaned programmer who lives in a virtual reality completely cutoff from the suffering that plagues the world. But how will she cope when a glitch takes her out of her virtual sanctuary and into the real world?
By 2149 the ubiquitous use of virtual reality creates a failed utopia, a system of indentured servitude, and the virtual division of society. In theory, the VR Initiative of 2051 intended to save the planet from overpopulation, promote equality, and help the Earth heal from human-caused environmental destruction. In practice, it allowed The VR Corporation to silently create a planet-wide totalitarian regime and enslave a global workforce all for the sake of keeping humanity “safe” inside a virtual reality.
After spending eighteen years in the VR, Laura finds herself back in this damaged and unforgiving world she tried to escape. She's anxious to return to her life in the VR, but forces reveal a different world than the one she remembers. She learns of a resistance movement fighting to free humanity from enslavement and discovers the true legacy of her deceased parents.
Can Laura help free humanity from a corrupt corporation and restore her parents’ legacy before it’s too late?
If you liked the dystopian worlds of Brave New World, 1984, or Ready Player One, then you’ll want to read about the dystopia created by the VR Corporation in 2149.

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.
