Sunday, May 22nd, 2022. This is the day the horseman’s plague escaped its internment. Not by the devil’s hand but by mine, and by those who aided us in our expedition.
The contagion spread from a tomb in Rome into Germany, and within weeks consumed all of Europe’s mainland, leading to a global military effort to contain the outbreak. But the virus survived, and the pharmaceutical company that procured the strand, too powerful to infiltrate.
It only took a few months before the infected emerged along the Eastern Shoreline of the United States. Coastal Quarantine Zones were established, but they were not prepared. No one was. No one had been. And no one was intended to be.
But as I sit here in a familiar home, embarking on a new expedition, trying to right my wrongs, I realize my chance of survival is slim against a virus that has evolved into something more instinctual, more sophisticated, than the mindless undead that rose from the tomb they were condemned to.

Billions around the world celebrated Khaos when it was finally revealed, awestruck by the rogue planet entering our solar system. However, for a small group of individuals, it was apocalyptic. Dr. Peels had predicted the path of the celestial body, warning the governments of the world that a near miss was likely. Still, no government had listened, citing other predictive models as the most likely path.
In secret, Dr. Peels built a cooperative effort between private industry, lobbied congress and passed laws, ensuring his veiled plans could unfold. Quickly, humanity began to crumble, coups ensued, and anarchy took hold. Dr. Peels was forced to launch his hand-picked crew early, but things quickly fell apart before the mission began. As the vulnerable crew raced towards Mars, the one thing which held them together wasn’t human, it was an android named Omega, tasked to learn all it can before it’s too late. It’s a race against time, gravity, and the laws of nature in this Khaotic story of salvation.

by Froylan Cervantes Jr
$0.00, 308 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (4 reviews), #576 in Science Fiction Adventure
It had been nearly sixty years since The Push forced almost the entire population of the Earth to extinction. A sudden loss of gravity had caused nearly everything on the face of the planet to become thrust into the sky. Buildings and planes that were shredded fell upward into the clouds, and massive amounts of earth and ocean were torn up and began to circulate in the atmosphere. Only those who could find a way to keep themselves underground were spared the colossal destruction. As for the rest, their screams filled the cold, red skies.
After the dust settled, people emerged from the darkness to try and find a way to live. Most established settlements where it was warm, including Noble, the city in this story. The survivors learned to live in their new environment, retreating underground when it became too unsafe. Massive bodies of ocean still floated above, often crashing back to the ground and drowning everything in the water’s raging path. Other threats existed, but the people thrived.
It was a new start in a strange new world.

"To put it simply, mankind became so proficient a hunter, domesticator, and sportsman that the bulk of his efforts, insofar as mindless beasts are concerned, were necessarily reoriented to protecting those mindless others from himself. It goes without saying that such temperance is without natural precedent, and so too that it represents a reorganization of spirit that occurred in just the knick of time. Populations of fang-toothed simpletons are on the up-and-up, if only because we fancy ourselves virtuous."
Explore realities foreign and familiar, follow alternate timelines to glimpse their unenviable conclusions, and brush the far-off extremities of an infinite network of potentiality. From Earth with Love in Every Language chronicles, from nine perspectives, the state of life on Earth and the nature of its masters.

Dr. Miles Cole and Alexandria Rizzo find themselves deep in a cave on Cuba’s coast. The obelisk they found at the dig site earlier is illuminating the cave, revealing to the duo that they are actually in a man-made structure, an ancient temple. They float through the temple channel into a circular room with several openings leading to new hallways with inscriptions on the ceiling. Alexandria uses her background in cryptology to try to decipher which opening they should explore. Once they make their choice and are inside the selected hallway, the water picks up speed enough speed to make turning back impossible, and forces Alexandria to make split decisions at forks in the channel. In a rush, Alexandria makes a wrong choice, leading them down a path of rushing water, gathering more and more speed. The two, realizing the danger, attempt to turn the boat around, tipping themselves over in the process, and losing the boat to the current. Wet, and missing half of their gear, they fight, swimming against the rushing water by grabbing along the walls of the temple, back to the previous hallway. Once on the correct path again, it isn’t long until they reach the center of the temple. There, they catch their breath, and the recent near death experience ignites a discussion about death, the afterlife, and the Kingdom of Heaven.
The center reveals dozens more of the strange obelisks, and a variety of machines. After some inspection, it becomes clear that the obelisks are actually energy cells that power the machines; the holes act as teeth on a key. Among the ruins, they also find diagrams and blueprints of the ancient civilization’s technology in a library of sorts. After experimenting with several machines, Dr. Cole discovers a platform with an opening for a power cell and inserts the one found at the dig site. Upon activation, the platform begins moving along the top of the water. He and Alexandria are able to use the platform to exit the cave. When they can hear the sound of the ocean outside, the platform stops and begins to make its way back from where it came. The two exit the platform and wade slowly back through the shallow water along the mangrove forest. Alexandria makes Dr. Cole promise to reimburse the hotel for the boat. Once back at the car, Alexandria and Miles are shocked to find Mr. Johnson and Mr. Rodriguez waiting for them.

Book One of the Refuge Omnibus series.
Just as Jason Wolfe, a widower with a ten-year-old daughter, is contemplating giving up his police badge for a less stressful life, an armada of starships falls upon Earth in a blitzkrieg invasion of fire and death, and he is suddenly challenged with their very survival. Even as the alien invaders decimate the human species while destroying anything that may aid survivors, a pair of vicious sociopaths use the opportunity to prey upon their fellows. Jason and his daughter join with other survivors in fleeing and fighting both foes. During all this, strange, new abilities emerge among human survivors, abilities that once resulted in the burning of witches. Might these abilities, if they can be controlled, aid in surviving the chaos — or even in eventually repelling the invaders? Is it only coincidence that these powers are emerging now? If it’s real, is it still magic?

Refuge Earth, book 1 of the Refuge Omnibus series, saw the kryls’ mighty armada destroy Earth’s civilizations and cull the human population back to a fraction of what had been.
Raven, book 2 of the Refuge Omnibus series, followed the opposing groups of survivors in the following weeks of bloody, post-apocalyptic chaos in which developing psychic abilities played a large part in who survives. Many died, but many survived, after which deteriorating conditions drove those that lived to abandon the ruins of Petaluma, and they headed north to find a new haven.
Wolfehaven, book 3 of the Refuge Omnibus series, begins six years after the caravan of refugees fleeing Petaluma established a new community on the bank of the Russian River in the redwood empire of the northern California coastal mountains.
During a hunt, Raven, Emmie, and Satan encounter Sherri, a young woman pierced by two arrows, with a four-year-old daughter and a babe in arms trying to flee a pair of assassins. In the middle of saving them with the powers they have used daily, they are confronted by a horror from six-years past — a kryl on a capture mission. They survive the confrontation, but with grave injuries that only Lila can handle. En route back to the village, they learn that Sherri’s assassins had been sent by their old nemesis, Ned Morgan, who not only survived the loss of his army six years prior but has established a new reign of terror.
Lila treats those injured, but Sherri, who has come of age under Ned Morgan’s domination and teachings and believing that such powers come from the devil, has trouble accepting all the psychic abilities she witnesses that are everyday functions in the community that has saved her and her children.
When events bring Wolfehaven’s existence to Morgan’s attention on the tongue of a traitor, the mad prophet sets out to finally eradicate the vile minions of the Evil One who opposed him in the past. Will their magic be enough to withstand the forces he brings against them, angry, brutal men believing the prophet's teachings and committed to slaying every living soul and putting the village itself to the torch?

In the ancient world, man was the ruler of all he beheld. His technology had allowed him to reach new heights of human dominance and progression. But then came the Wasting, when a blast of pure energy struck down from the sky and the earth was blackened by the dark clouds that eventually covered the surface of the world. All life was nearly lost, and the few remaining human survivors scratched out a bare existence in small colonies as they struggled against the now deadly world around them.
But then came the time when some of them realized they had been changed by the strange force that had so radically altered their world. They could see into the fabric of reality itself, allowing them to make changes as they saw fit. It began in the most basic forms, calling forth the elements and moving things with their minds, but it eventually grew into the arts of healing and modifications of items that they called enchantments. These people formed a new society, which they called the Order of the Magi, and they set their will upon the world around them, making things better for themselves and the rest of humanity that had come to rely upon them. A great city was built and they formed their headquarters there, watching over the people of the Waste and protecting them from the new monsters that had emerged from the energies that had laid the world waste.
But then came rumors of a new enemy, a strange army from across the sea, which seemed intent on enslavement and destruction. And along with this new enemy would come the secrets of the hidden past, and eventually a revelation of the world as something quite different than any of them had ever believed possible.

Magenta Rising (The Tilt Series Book 1)
Central Otago, New Zealand. Three hundred and fifty years after a catastrophic disaster has killed 99.9% of the planet’s population, the survivors – descendants of the only underground shelter to remain miraculously intact – struggle to survive in a hostile new world.
Drenched in deadly ultraviolet rays, the human race’s dwindling genetic code is in crisis. To nurture and rebuild it, a cloning program was established to mass produce identical self-aware male and female clones to undertake the environmentally dangerous tasks for the fledgling, canopy-protected colony of Sinai. These replicants were all called, simply, Joseph and Clara.
With a century and half of faithful servitude behind them, two military cadet Claras experience an unexpected “life variation”. They suddenly evolve, step outside the cluster and form – for the first time – their own awareness.
This evolution takes each of them on their own personal journey where, together, they uncover just how far the leaders of the new Earth will go to protect the human race from extinction.
Sinai's Descent (The Tilt Series Book 2)
With Sinai’s binds unraveling, the two Claras must choose which side to stay loyal to, and decide who, in a world torn apart, the real enemy is.
In the depths of the jungle-covered outer sector, renegade Clara struggles to come to terms with her own past, to face the responsibilities of what she has done and, more importantly, to embrace what she must become.
Sinai Clara, embedded amongst the elite Humanitarian Services, faces her own demons. After all she has witnessed and unsure how far she must go to stop its momentum, she joins forces with those who plan to take Sinai down from within.
In the explosive conclusion to The Tilt Series saga, the Claras make their own mark in the uprising that could finally bring Sinai’s corrupt rulers to their knees.

A ten-year period of accelerated climate change cripples the United States. In its wake, a barbarian horde punches through the east coast usurping the water trade from established, successful tribes. Those like Sam Mason’s, the largest tribe in Wilmington, North Carolina. Los Angeles born biologist Tom Mason discovers a gene regulating neural growth factor in engineered mosquitoes that prevents disease outbreaks. His world-renowned work drags the Mason family into the secret world of retired pharmaceutical giant Arnold Stone, who envisions other uses for the expression system.
Tom raises his son, Sam, in Raleigh as the Earth changes. Tribes form along the Southeast Coast in the wake of civilization’s mass exodus into the mountains. Those left behind must carve a living amidst gangs, mutated man-eating animals and plants, pestilent weather, and a swelling barbarian horde. Estranged from his father, Sam moves to Wilmington and joins the Divers, a powerful tribe supplying freshwater to an exhausted, starving Southwest. While Sam competes with sharks the size of a school bus for food, Tom travels into North Carolina’s swamplands to collect strange samples and is coerced by a sadistic interdimensional being to make a deal.
Disillusioned by the Divers, worried about his mother alone in Raleigh, Sam defects from the Divers. He must make a choice – leave his tribe to fight the horde or help his father fulfill the bargain, sliding into a wasteland rife with mutation and under control by interdimensional beings that harvest energy from the dead. He must confront a new race, one mutated by the Stone strain harnessing special powers. The race created a new, powerful energy source using radiotrophic fungi, and none who seeks them ever return. But a mysterious interdimensional entity watches over Sam, bound by an agreement struck with his father. Described as unsympathetic, destructive, and selfish, and known for farming human souls for sustenance, the entity might be Sam’s only hope to survive his journey.
Master Hunter combines two books, The Stone Scry and Cuddles, which collectively form the Master Hunter series. The complete story includes updated formatting and some minor edits.

It is not an actual, literal mark on the hand or forehead, as so many have expected, but—make no mistake—it is real, it exists, it does come. “On the hand” for those who live for pleasure of the body; “on the forehead” for those whose intellect is evil. And what is it exactly? It is the Mark of the Beast, and on September 1, 2061, it is signed into law in Kazan, Russia by the world’s eight most powerful leaders, inaugurating the seven years of Hell on Earth referred to as “the Tribulation.” Even a day before the treaty is ratified, Kazan is stricken by a massive earthquake, fire, and eruption of new geysers—these express God’s rage with those who wish to unite humanity against Him. These eight men, having escaped this disaster narrowly with their lives, assume the worst is over and ratify the treaty anyway.
And then September 2 dawns, only to reveal much worse back in the country that the Lord holds most accountable for Kazan: the United States. America's final president, the False Prophet, Ryan Cooper Preston, whose life and career and administration seemed so full of hope and light and freedom, will find out he is viewed by his own God as most culpable for things. Because he worships freedom, self, and sin, and teaches Earth to do the same. What September 2 holds specifically in store for man is “Pyramid Lake 1,” the first of three colossal earthquakes that open up huge literal divides through much of North America. The scope is unimaginable, and 20 million die. Only 1 percent of what is damaged or destroyed—including many entire American cities—can be repaired to any noticeable degree. In the most poetic and symbolic aspect of the earthquake’s terror, the nation’s “divorce capital” Reno, Nevada is itself split apart, its two halves relocated to the opposing sides of the massive new crevasse between two portions of the country. In a nation where one-half of all who marry eventually divorce, such judgment has now come. Far worse yet is on its way as Genghis Khan, who does still live as "Restored Republic" Nationalist dictator Hu Chiang of China, prepares to carry out his war of vengeance from East Asia.
And it certainly isn't just the everyday people of the U.S. who are guilty…nor is it only those who divorce who are held accountable. It is also those in power, indeed those in the White House, and it is those, too, whose marriages are cold and bitter. The President and First Lady, who never technically divorce, drift farther and farther apart, and soon resort to lust and sin to keep alive their marriage and their waning motivation for their duties. The horrors of "Pyramid Lake 1" are strong and certain warnings both for them and for their people. They all fail to listen. Instead, Mrs. Preston embarks on a whirlwind tour of the Orient in the wake of a new regime in China; there she is wined and dined and misled into thinking that the East has turned a new page, a lie to which she soon succumbs. Meanwhile, back in Washington, her husband, rather than look inward at himself and his great nation to see what could be changed, decides to direct his malice at both Carl Ring and smaller nations whose threats he wants removed.
Regrettably for Preston, regrettably for Earth, he soon finds out that Ring--who owns the audience at his trial at Fort Leavenworth--is now a martyr, now a magnet for desperate people. Preston soon invades Mexico and props up a right-wing regime, also making time to pour out fire on nations in Central America and the Middle East. Urged by Israel's prime minister, whose nation is now wearied despite its victory in another full-scale war--the Muslim world is livid over the return of Jewish daily sacrifices to the Temple Mount--Preston hits nuke-ruined Iran with record-breaking conventional bomb runs.
But all man's efforts are in vain. God will still judge. Darcloch, in Scotland for now, will soon have a global ministry that says just that. Even now he knows that only courage and true love will do.

"The writing lures you into a false sense of tranquility that borders into meditative until images of unspeakable suspense and horror abruptly snap you from your comfort zone."“Tell me,” he said. “Please tell me.”“It’s an engine,” she said. “But it jumps between realities. Dimensions. Worlds.”“This is what you’ve been working on?”“They’re infinite,” she said. “There’s no end to them that I can see. We could do this forever and it’d always be different. Some places of destruction and death and loss. Others washed in peace and wealth. In some there are so many people that no one could even count the worlds they live on, let alone the people themselves. In others they’re all dead and long gone and other things have replaced them.” Shrugging now. As if it were beyond even her. “They’re infinite.”“But this,” he said. “But this isn’t ours?”“Are any of them?”While I was editing The Dragon Hunt, I spent time every day writing flash fiction. This collection of short stories is the result. It ranges from fantasy to science fiction to horror to dystopian fiction. It was very fun to write and I hope you love reading it.

Kaila Guidry has always known she is different. After all, her mother insists she hide her hair under a tin foil shield and a wig before leaving the house. When Kaila meets Jordyn Stryker one day at school, she begins to understand the origin of her mother’s seemingly irrational fears.
Jordyn Stryker was born and raised far from Earth, a starseed, one of six new students sent undercover to Louisina’s Bush High to learn human ways. When Kaila is pushed to her limit by high school bullying and cruelty, Jordyn steps in and awakens her to a new reality, and to love. Out of loyalty to him, Kaila looks the other way when the real purposes of the starseed begin to unfold.
As the horrific plan behind the starseed visit to Earth moves forward, Kaila and Jordyn, caught in an impossible love, must face who they really are and decide where their true loyalties lie.
"I will gladly give this story 5 stars. It isn't often that I find a new twist on the old sci fi, but Gruder has managed to give it a unique perspective." --Recent Reads
"Kaila was very relateable to me, she loved her family but longed to know a sense of normalcy." --Fun With Books
"Liz Gruder created in her protagonist a dichotomy of child and woman that I found positively endearing and very entertaining. Kaila is a teenager who conveys the innocence of a sheltered child with her earnestness, compassion and sweetness." --Mommasez
"Starseed brings a nice sci-fi flavor with a dash of romance to the genre. Fans of SF in general can enjoy . . .the juicy splashes of science fact and fiction, along with those who would like to dip into the genre pool without being drowned in too much SF too soon. This is a welcome edition to the SFR YA genre." A Writer's Dream
“I really liked the story. It caught me off guard and won me over after the first chapter. The main conflict is a personal one for Kalia. Will she embrace her alien side or continue life as a human?” --Pixie Dust Reviews
"The concept of starseeds was a big selling point for me. I’ve watched enough Star Trek and sci-fi in my time that this really hooked me. Aliens, who look perfectly normal, and so much like humans they might as well be, are hiding among us. Maybe they’re trying to help us into a Golden Age. Maybe they simply want to watch and learn about us. Or, maybe, they’re here for another, darker reason." --The Forbidden Library

| The Enemy Within: A Dystopian Thriller|
by Graham Watkins
$0.00, 236 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (8 reviews), #642 in Literature & Fiction (Kindle Store)
A car crash, an old suitcase and a dark secret leads to a story of arson and murder.
Simon Reece's journey through this dystopian crime thriller, searching to find his identity, draws him into a world of lies, danger and murder. This is a world controlled by evil policemen, corrupt politicians and all seeing computers, a world where fiction and science come together, of suspense and action where vulnerable citizens are mere pawns in a terrible experiment. As Simon Reece fights to expose the truth he faces mortal challenges, deadly enemies who will stop at nothing and a state which will do everything in its power to destroy him. Reece's quest is a story of Orwellian madness writ large in the 21st Century.
Paul White's review says all;
Revelations in the aftermath of a tragedy, lead Simon Reece, cyber-security entrepreneur, to embark on a quest to discover his true identity. This personal catastrophe intersects with national calamity – a fractured country, paralysed by rioting, plagued by terrorist violence, struggling to find its own new identify; a nation highly susceptible to the arguments of a populist movement that offers an apparently surefooted pathway amidst the sinkholes of a collapsing society and body politic.
The book’s author, Watkins, masterfully taps into the zeitgeist of potentially post-Brexit Britain, immersing the reader in a maelstrom from which the lead character and the country are co-joined in a struggle in which so-called “special relationships” are exposed as ephemeral window-dressings concealing shady goings-on where vested interests are ruthlessly pursued. Watkins takes us on a journey at which every twist and turn leads to revelations that shatter the very foundations of what might be considered normal, both for the individual and for society at large.
At the heart of the book lies a fundamental question: in highly volatile times, how much “collateral damage” to our freedom and civil liberties are we prepared to accept in return for state protection from myriad threats and dangers?
In a book that combines Buchanesque plot lines with Orwellian dystopia, every reader will surely find themselves reflecting on how Watkins’ vision could all too easily become a devastating reality.
| The Seventh Carrier (Seventh Carrier Series Book 1)|
by Peter Albano
$0.00, 397 pages, 3.8 out of 5.0 (41 reviews), #1856 in Military Thrillers (Kindle Store)
It is the first day of December, 1983. Ted ‘Trigger’ Ross is a very long way from his past as a World War II hero, as forty years later he travels aboard the steamer Sparta, through the Bering Sea.
Then, as if from nowhere come Japanese aircraft, Zeros, World War II vintage — and nearly four decades after that war ended, they are heading straight for Sparta.
As they undertake their strafing run, destroying the blood-soaked Sparta and killing most of her crew, Trigger Ross is hurled out of calm normality and back into the horrors of war.
Because for the crew of the carrier Yonaga, World War II has not yet ended.
The crew of the carrier Yonaga are samurai, and that means following orders, even to the death.
And the crew of the Yonaga have orders to attack Pearl Harbor. Orders that have never been revoked, and which must therefore be carried out.
As Ross, a prisoner on board the Yonaga, finds himself carried back towards his homeland, he draws upon all his inner strength and understanding — of Japanese culture, and of warfare — in a desperate bid to avert disaster.
Meanwhile the American authorities, baffled by repeated reports of ships attacked by Zeros, search for answers.
Brent Ross, Trigger’s son, believes his father lost at sea. Having heard tales of Japanese ‘holdouts’ many years after World War II, Brent suspects that something similar may be afoot.
Brent is right. But how long will it take his superiors to realise that?
As the Americans seek answers, and Brent seeks support for his theory, the Yonaga travels on, relentlessly, getting ever closer to Pearl Harbor.
The original attack on Pearl Harbor was made by six Japanese carriers: now the seventh is on her way. And the Americans, for whom World War II ended almost forty years previously, are completely unprepared for any attack.
Will the Yonaga reach her destination?
And if she does — what then?
Peter Albano (1922-2006) was a US writer who served in the US Navy 1942-1946; he is known mainly for the nine-book Seventh Carrier sequence of military adventures staring the World War Two Japanese aircraft carrier Yonaga.

Brock and Huck have to get a wagon full of silver from the Cerro Gordo mine to Los Angeles, knowing there is a ruthless killer waiting to ambush them somewhere along the two-hundred-and-fifty-mile trail. They can only hope that the men they've recruited to help them are better than the men Tiburcio Vasquez has recruited to kill them.

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.

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.
