NEWLY UPDATED
COMPLETE QUINN PARKER TRILOGY

This post-apocalyptic reality representation asks a crucial question: If humanity waits too long, what could possibly happen? Will the very worst of times come as a consequence? Will the world we have known come to a point where simple survival is not only incredibly challenging but nearly next to impossible? If mankind had acted sooner, would it still have been too late? Are we but the authors of our own troubled future, of a time and circumstance slowly starting to dramatically unfold?
Is the one species granted the gift of self-awareness going to fail at the most critical juncture of its existence? Will human beings lack sufficient enough awareness to realize that it was by their own hand that they proved to be the creator of their own undoing? That is the essential underlying theme in this exploration of what could easily happen if humanity does not immediately wake up and collectively face the potential consequences of global inaction. Climate change is real. It poses a serious threat to the long-term existence of our species—not to mention an entire world of others. If a potent sense of urgency is not instigated in all of us now, we will suffer together as a result. We may well create the unquestionably challenging future we all deserve.

When at last a message arrives, the news is as bad as it could possibly be: the rescue mission has crash-landed on the planet!

In the adventures that follow, the explorers will face death more than once, will discover the answers to the mysterious signs of life on Hesikos, and will find that the future of the whole planet hangs in the balance…

Return to the Lost Planet is the second in MacVicar’s series of six thrilling science fiction adventure tales about Hesikos, filled with trials and tribulations, wonder and calamity.

Praise for Angus MacVicar:



‘Absorbing science fiction’ Kirkus Reviews

Angus MacVicar was an accomplished Scottish author, screenwriter and playwright who published work in a variety of genres. Earlier in his career he was known for his crime thrillers and autobiography, but his early writing was interrupted by his service as a captain in the Royal Scots Fusiliers, which meant that most of his juvenile science fiction was not published until after World War II. It was then that his ‘Lost Planet’ series became extremely popular, with MacVicar himself adapting the stories as TV and radio serials.

Battleborn
by Andrew Beery
$0.00, 179 pages, 4.8 out of 5.0 (8 reviews), #3 in Space Fleet Science Fiction eBooks
An imperfect hero for an imperfect time. For generations, the Riker men have been the best of the best. For the Battleborn that comes with a cost.

***

I had to give the other guy credit. That was a fine right hook. Every bit as good as my mom used to give me. Of course, the best right hooks were the ones I landed on the other guy rather than the ones the other guy landed on me. My dear departed mother had always taught me it was better to give than receive. It’s unlikely that her cherished advice was meant to apply to bar fights, but then, she wasn’t a big fan of bars or fights in general. I spit out the blood in my mouth.

My name is Tad Riker. I serve as a tactical weapons officer for the Wolves, but I was raised by the Stallions. The poor unfortunate reprobate, who was even now feeling the wrath of my fist, was serving as an armorer for the Stallions. That’s why I took this fight so personally . . . not that he was an armorer, but that he was a Stallion.

Alien Minds
by E. Everett Evans

"Were you looking for a roch, nyer?" An oily voice spoke up just by the elbow of George Hanlon. "I have some excellent ones here, sir."
"Yes, nyer, I want several, if I can find ones to suit me," the young man replied. Nor could anyone, glancing at him, know he was not a native of this planet, Szstruyyah, which the Inter-Stellar Corpsmen, in self-defense, called "Estrella." For the cosmetic-specialist who handled the secret servicemen's disguises had done a marvelous job in transforming the blond young Corpsman into an Estrellan native.
Hanlon continued looking into the outside cages containing these tailless roches, the Estrellan equivalent of wild dogs. "I want eight, all as near the same size, coloring and age as possible."
"Eight, did you say?" the merchant looked at him in astonishment. Hanlon, carefully reading the surface of the man's mind, sensed the conflict there between the ethics his religion and philosophy had taught him, his natural love of haggling, and a desire to make as much profit as possible. But he could not sense the slightest suspicion that the man confronting him was not another Estrellan...

Aries' Red Sky: A Vergassy Universe Novel
by James Young
$0.00, 373 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (9 reviews), #10 in Space Fleet Science Fiction eBooks
"[S]pace opera that plays out on a grand scale, and Young conduct[s] it with aplomb."--Pop Cults, the website of Geek and Alternative Culture

For over seven hundred years, the Spartan Republic's citizens have known one truth: Terra is coming. Descendants of exiles who dared to defy an emperor, the star nation's 70 billion citizens spent the centuries training, arming...and waiting.

In 3035, Leftenant Ian Campbell, Spartan Defense Forces (SDF), discovers a strange anomaly on his corvette's sensors...and realizes the wait is over. The Spartans must convince the Terrans of the cost of subduing their nation. If they succeed, the Republic survives. If not, the SDF will be forced to paint the stars red with their enemies' blood.

The Confederation of Man was born in the terror of the Harran Empire's death throes. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Humanity now spreads from its cradle on Earth to hundreds of stars across the Milky Way, and seeks out new worlds to add.

Captain Marcy Cochran was hoping to find a habitable planet; she didn't expect the system to already have hostile humans. Now a captive, Cochran must contend with a crew proving to be as dangerous as their enemies, and prevent what has started out as a misunderstanding from becoming a full-fledged interstellar war. For Terran law is quite clear: All humanity will answer to the Confederation. For the Spartans, that makes the government on Earth no different than the empire it supplanted...and they would rather die on their feet than subjugate themselves once more.

Aries' Red Sky is the newest novel in James Young's Vergassy Chronicles universe. A prequel to An Unproven Concept, it is the first in the Spartan Trilogy. If you like space opera, high body counts, and capital ship battles on a galactic scale, pick up an author who has been recommended by Amazing Stories, Pop Cults, and The Midwest Book Review.

The Erelim Brothers never really fit in.

Born in an era of violence and war, the Erelim Brothers made it their ethos to raze the darkness and corruption of their time. With their natural abilities, years of training and countless battles fought, they discover it’s not all what it is made out to be when you’re the most powerful beings around. Despised and envied by their peers and upper class they find when you’re at the top of the food chain, everyone else wants the position for themselves. When the wars end they find themselves surrounded by enemies and sycophants alike. Not willing to be part of the cycle all over again, they decide to eliminate themselves from the equation.

But they could have never imagined just how far they would end up.

In a new time, they discover deep roots to the problems of man and encounter unlikely companions who may or may not be what they hoped for. Nothing is ever simple, this new time brings enemies abound. They learn impossible truths to everything they understood. From one decision to another the brothers are reminded, yet again, those who hold to an ethos like theirs will never sit on the sidelines. Although they weren’t looking for more trouble, they will answer when it comes calling.

Brothers will be brothers though. They share in everything and watch out for each other. Family may never let you down, but when your close to one another, the bond of brothers is wrought with harsh truths and good times. Even if it is at each other’s expense.

Unseen powers will be unleashed and swords will cross as the Erelim Brothers find themselves in the middle of conspiracies and enemies. Some of whom aren’t so bad to look at.

When the United States of America crumbles under civilian protests and riots, a new United America rises from the ashes…

After a reformation, United America runs like a well-oiled machine. Solar power trumps fossil fuels, strict laws keep crime at an all-time low, and at sixteen, residents are assigned their role in society—and fulfill it without complaints. But unbeknownst to the citizens, they are also under constant monitoring, and reigning President Vaughn has eyes in every sector of the gleaming country.

When Rosaline Thatcher turns sixteen, it is time to receive her position in society…

When President Vaughn calls Rosaline to the stage, she dutifully follows orders. Though she dare not disobey, it’s unclear why she is being singled out. As she passes her best friend, Wesley, she’s reminded of what’s at stake. With her new role, she could be torn from her friends and family forever.

Rosaline goes from ordinary citizen to leader of the free world…

Shocked and overwhelmed, Rosaline can’t understand why she was chosen for the most vital position of all. But with great power comes great responsibility, and with the help of those closest to her, the fate of their thriving country rests in her hands.

When she discovers a secret location only known as the O.C., the United America Rosaline thought she knew may turn out to be history’s greatest fraud…

In a society where citizens obey without question, what will happen when one girl dares to defy, and what will that mean for United America?

“A thrilling read” New Consciousness Review
“Having the right amount of adventure and romance, this crisscrossing genre tale isn’t just a good read, but may also look great on a big screen.” Portland Book Review
“…the book mixes uncommon palettes and manages a masterpiece with it. It is a surprising, suspenseful, and utterly superb read from start to end.” Self-Publishing Review
“…highly recommended, indeed; especially for thriller and sci-fi readers who have become deluged with too much predictability and who seek cutting-edge action, believable protagonists, and action that is solidly intense throughout.” Midwest Book Review
“Deft dialogue, crisp plotting, and a likable central figure make this multidisciplinary scientific adventure an exuberant and involving read.” Kirkus Review

Sci-Fi Thriller Noir, delving into the nature of reality

Evyline Marron had been caught at a young age—early enough, it had been hoped, to make a difference, an intervention with good intentions, but which would unwittingly serve as the beginning of an education. How to fit in. How to be, for appearances sake, one of the sheep.

Two decades on and the child psychopath is now an accomplished neuroscientist, pursuing an understanding of her own nature by peering into the deceased heads of others.

And for that she needs specimens, of which there has been something of a dearth of late, a situation that had necessitated a scheme to encourage suitable candidates to gift access to their craniums upon death, a scheme that has Evyline charming her way into the heads of the great and good.

But they just aren’t dying soon enough.

And then, quite out of the blue, the cerebral cortex of a very particular individual comes Evyline’s way.

An individual possessed of some very peculiar notions indeed.

He never talks and has withdrawn to the confines of his own mind and imagination. Jack loves his brother and longs for the deep connection they shared as children when Corban looked out for Jack in the absence of their parents.

At first glance, this seems much like the story of so many others who are faced with similar difficulties, but Jack and Corban’s story is different. Jack finds himself drawn into a world called Alexandria. In this land, individual minds are intimately connected into a shared experience, separate from the reality we live in, consisting entirely on the combined imagination of those that created it.

In Jack’s quest to find and connect with his brother, he discovers that he is the link upon which all humanity depends and that Alexandria has a great role that is bigger than anything he ever imagined. How does such a land even exist? What is Jack’s role in such a world? Jack searches to find these and other answers as he fights to defend Alexandria against the great evil that is growing in the land.

Lan and Kiska k’Adesina are hunting for Claybore’s legs.

The sorcerer had been dismembered and his parts strewn along the infinite length of the Cenotaph Road.

Over the years, through the millennia, Claybore had slowly reunited his parts.

Only Lan Martak stood between Claybore and domination of not a single world but myriads of them.

Lan had destroyed the sorcerer’s skin and in his own mouth Lan tasted the metallic tang of the magical tongue once used by Claybore to speak spells and world-wrecking curses.

Will Lan break the spell and stop Claybore? Or will an ancient curse close the road behind him…forever?

As they design, build, and install traps, rooms, obstacles, and repair, they are a one-stop shop.

Waters of Eternity
by John Russell Fearn
$0.00, 116 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #85 in Science Fiction Anthologies (Kindle Store)

Our world has changed…

It is no longer our own.



Waters of Eternity is a gripping collection of three original novels from classic science fiction author, John Russell Fearn.

Never before in ebook, here are three thrillingly prophetic stories from a master of the genre.

In Waters of Eternity, Life on Mars takes a terrifying turn as Rad and his partner Invia realise that the resources of the planet have grown scarce. Forced into action, they turn to the only option they have left – a complex water compound of immense power and great danger…

Next, Fearn turns to a forewarning vision of the future in which the planet has become a World Without Women, set three years after a global pandemic that eradicated the entire female population of the Earth.

That is, all but one…

And finally, in The World In Wilderness, a small group of pilots returning to Earth after observing the distant cosmic collision of two stars find something they never expected.

Every human being on the planet has disappeared.

In this captivating collection of novellas, we find John Russell Fearn at his most imaginative, engaging, and far-sighted. The ideas we gain in Waters of Eternity may yet have the power to come true…

Praise for John Russell Fearn:



“… A pioneer of science fiction […] he was one of the Greats of the earlier ages, and his name should be there with Hugo Gernsback, John W. Campbell, Stanley G. Weinbaum, Murray Leinster, and all the others whose thoughts and works formulated today’s modern science fiction.” — John Carnell, New Worlds

John Russell Fearn was an extremely prolific and popular British writer, who began in the American pulps, then almost single-handedly drove the post-World War II boom in British publishing with a flood of science fiction, detective stories, westerns, and adventure fiction. He was so popular that one of his pseudonyms became the editor of Vargo Statten’s Science Fiction Magazine in the 1950’s. His work is noted for its vigor and wild imagination. He has always had a substantial cult following and has been popular in translation around the world.

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


eReaderIQ

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.


BookBub

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:

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.


Overdrive

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.


Gutenberg

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

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.
