Nearly two decades after the fall, the transcendent city of Iris is the only place rumored to have a cure to the disease that decimated the world. Beyond Iris, are the remnants of the old world, crawling with the Depraved. Infected with Lethe, they no longer remember the people or dreams they were once willing to fight for, and are left instead with familiar voices that whisper dark and unfamiliar words within their minds. Instinct is all that keeps the diseased struggling to exist another day.
Deep underground, below Iris, exists a compound, prison to the Nameless who traded their freedom for the cure to Lethe. It is here that 736 fights to protect those she loves. Not against the Depraved that she's taught to fear, but against the society that saved her from that fate. She was willing to trade away her rights to regain the ability to form memories, but she won't let the cult that cured her treat the lives of the Nameless like a resource to be used and discarded. At least, not without a fight.
How much is 736 willing to sacrifice for revenge against her captors? For those she cares about? For freedom? Everything has a cost, what would you be willing to pay?

Samuel finds out that there is more to the world than the dystopian misery he lives in. The knowledge changes him, encourages him, makes him do things he'd normally be too afraid to do. Soon enough, he joins the rebellion but ahead of him lies more - far more - than a straight path to freedom. There are things he doesn’t understand, things he wants to deny, things he can do that no one else can... and they’re all coming for him.
"Hayward’s world takes place in a frightening version of a world that ours could become. She does a wonderful job of capturing the worried, secretive feeling of needing to avoid the watchful gaze of a regime that is not looking out for the best interest of its people. In a lot of ways, it hits home, especially in these days of riots, lockdowns and unethical facial recognition. Despite it all, Hayward leads forth into a new and hopeful day, assuring the reader will need to know what comes next"

July 8, 1954. PJ has 126 days to live and he doesn't even have the Christmas Plague. When things were normal and PJ lived with his parents in Chicago, his diabetes was an embarrassment. Then the Christmas hit, spreading like wildfire through the cities, and his parents sent him to live with Miss Bernice where his diabetes became an annoyance. Now with his parents and Miss Bernice gone, down to his last bottles of insulin, his diabetes feels like a death sentence.
Now, Millie, a fellow plague refugee living at a neighboring farm, tells him rumors of a city where there's no more plague and things are getting back to normal. It sounds too good to be true, but dying slowly alone in rural Nebraska sounds worse, so PJ heads out with her on a thousand mile trek to find more insulin. But this post-plague world is full of dangerous surprises and PJ and Millie don't know who to trust. Are they really heading toward a promise of the past or into a nightmare future?

2am. Not a single person is around to witness the blossoming of a fresh crack in the fragile reality of Madhattan. It’s just a small wormhole, really, a bridging between two points in space and time that would have preferred to remain ignorant of each other.
That's how this first story in the New Warped City Stories series opens. What happens next, like most of what happens in NWC, is unexpected.
These stories are a dry, darkly humorous, and inventive look at people who take mutation for granted and random acts of physics as a simple fact of day-to-day life.
First time in New Warped City?
When the first modulation hit everything changed, even the name.
The effects weren’t localised to Madhattan, or the Eastern Seaboard or North America or Earth. There’s no-one to tell anyone how extensive the modulation was. Science needs stability, lenses need precise curves, computers need logic.
The nights are dark in New Warped City and when the corkscrew moon isn’t dimly glowing you can see the stars, but you can’t recognise any of them. In the black sky there are clusters and voids, great blue and green sweepings of light, ripples, spirals, godawful confusions and nonstellations. Every night a wedge of an entire galaxy, cut like a piece of sparkle pie, sweeps overhead, disintegrating in a fear almost audible.
As above, so below. Nothing escaped the modulation.

The moon's orbit has been disturbed by corporate warfare, laying the Earth victim to massive king tides and fierce dry electrical storms. The elite have taken to the skies in gigantic flying cities, leaving the third class workers to survive on the ground with no support, striving to rebuild life on the planet's surface.
This is the setting for Dead Earth Dreaming.
Above the waterline but underground are Breeding Colonies, used to create genetically engineered workers by the Upside authorities, pumping out obedient and thoughtless slaves for the system. Occasionally though, a worker will show signs of individualism, and for this they are placed in a rehabilitation institution.
C22108/3 was incarcerated as an indigenous boy, and after 23 years he escapes his outback prison and heads for the old city of Sydney to find freedom as a man. An Upside detective, Junger, is sent to find him with the aid of a T2R, a Tactical Response Retriever.
C22108/3 connects with the locals, inheriting the name 'Kelly' through his use of a lead suit to evade the tracking of his Internal Position Monitor. The chase is on for Junger to intercept Kelly before he reaches the Bunker, an abandoned Colony reopened by a band of punk squatters. Overseen by the sole survivor, Cat, the Bunker is now utilized as a medical centre and IPM removal ward for Upside refugees wishing to be freed from the constraints of Authority.
Human spirit will shine in a world with no future.
Originally written in the 1990s, now is the time to read Dead Earth Dreaming.

Three-hundred years ago, Chairman Yacopo forced his people to leave their planet and invade a neighbouring water world. Within that time, he sterilised and exterminated groups of his population in the name of environmentalism.
Now, he wants a planet in a red dwarf system, twenty light-years away. A planet left devastated by a nuclear war. His scientists have created an organism to de radiate it, and he must seek permission to gain access.
But because these organisms are sentient beings, he must deceive the alliance to sidestep anti-slavery laws.
He’s also ignorant that a six-year-old time traveller sets his heart on assassinating him.
Can the Chairman achieve his dream based on lies?
Red Star is better to read after Rayner’s first series—Plan8 Slaves (Firesnake,) whether that be in the form of the original complex multi-point of view box set or as a simplified standalone omnibus book (spanning the first series) from a single character’s point of view.

The President of the United States is coming to terms with being told that he has not been privy to the biggest secret. A country starts an operation to rewrite history, with the aim of rearranging the geographical make-up of the world for its own benefit.
Max Ritter is working hard on renovating his house deep in the English countryside and is oblivious to that fact that an emissary from a benevolent alien species from a distant star system has brought a message. A message to humanity, and very shortly it’s going to face its ultimate challenge from dark forces and if not acted upon human civilisation will be changed forever.
A member of parliament, and a possible future Prime Minister has been put in the insufferable position of being blackmailed by an international drug trafficker and pornographer. An elderly scientist learns about the alternate life he’s lived, and is finally able to tell the truth about what he witnessed in 1945.
For Max Ritter all those memories of his previous life and the war have been almost forgotten, along with the thoughts of the suicide of Adolf Hitler, the architect of Nazism in a bunker under Berlin in 1945.
That was the end of Max’s journey, or so he thought, and the start of a new life for both he and his wife. Not once did they consider that they would again suffer the feeling of absolute fear and the dreadful hopelessness they’d endured all those years ago. Not until one warm summer’s day decades later when they are visited by Ralph Barnes.
Barnes is the powerhouse behind the black world. He wields immense power across the globe, and has spent more than fifty years masterminding, controlling and organising the operations in the secret black world. He brings evidence that Hitler did not die in 1945 as the world thought, and with that news comes a new and a far more frightening enemy.
Barnes asks Ritter if he can help, and after a fruitful meeting with the old scientist, Ritter reveals to the President that he wasn’t as open with the truth when they travelled back in time. He offers up an idea entirely based on the recovery of one vital piece of equipment. The president immediately orders that everything possible must be done to recover the equipment.
The powers that move in the shadows behind the British government cannot allow the blackmailing of a member of parliament, and the fear shuffling along the corridors of power is that the material could be sold to rogue state to bring down the government.
Mike Jarvis and Nick Grant are members of the shadow British department that works alongside the Americans on alien retrievals. They are sent to recover the material from the criminal whose business spans the globe and his connections within the intelligence world run deep. His reach goes further, and he is responsible for a more heart breaking crime closer to home.
The search for the equipment Ritter spoke of had become the property of a billionaire who subsequently traded for favours to a foreign power. The President after a consultation with a specialist advisor, realises that the foreign power in question will start to, or is already using the equipment to create their own new world order.
After discussions with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, President Daniels orders General Cooper to ready a recovery team, and to retrieve the equipment. Zak Winters is the nephew of another black world leading light and it is he and his team are chosen.
With the prospect of their actions starting a nuclear war, the decision is made to deploy the team to retrieve the equipment, as the outcome of the other scenario is unthinkable. The team are sent to infiltrate the foreign country and retrieve the equipment in an all-out gamble. Time is running out as alien forces return to reap Hitler’s revenge.
Winters, Grant and Jarvis along the rest of the team face the final test, to finish the job started all those years ago.

by Michael R. Hartman
$0.00, 360 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #174 in Science Fiction Adventure
This is the second volume of the PALDERYN series, and is a follow-on from the first book, PALDERYN: Apocalypse:
Five Star Rating - “Palderyn was a very intriguing read. The way the author weaved the different timelines together and how the humanity of the divine entities was portrayed made it hard to put the book down. I look forward to reading Book Two of the series” - Diana.
The second volume carries on the tradition in the same vein as the first novel taking the reader deeper into the Palderyn world. What was once friend, is now foe, and things are not as they seem. Peace has been destroyed, and a warning has been issued by Ntombi, the young African sangoma from Earth:
"… The adversary has set in motion a series of events challenging the very nature of our understanding. The creature is also the guardian of an alternative future, and if you try to prevent what is happening, that event will destroy you. Do you understand? In that choice, everything will be lost …”
Four significant events happened across three worlds:
The planet Palderyn is recovering from war and life is returning to normality. However, things are not as they seem. Dissension is growing and a new cult is taking hold.
On the planet Luxo, a cyborg reflects on the demise of his creator, and clones his creator’s daughter to assist him. The daughter takes on the task to resurrect her species.
In the Place of No-Time, the Guild of the Oracles identify a malignancy within the overall time frame of the universe. They determine that if the situation is left unchecked, the malaise would lead to the eventual dissolution of all. The oracles identify only one entity that is able to rectify this.
On Earth, a young African sangoma and guardian discovers there was a false initiation of the universe. In this, the original entities within were displaced into an abyss, together with a deep hatred for all that supplanted them.
During these circumstances, the various viewpoint characters in the story are scattered, and each in their own right, contribute towards defeating the entity that deceives them all.

It is The Future, and the Mennonites of rural Pennsylvania live much as they always have, while the world around them has changed enormously. Indira left this place years ago to travel the Earth and beyond, but now for personal reasons she has returned. It is here, of all places, that she encounters "Paul" (his real name unpronounceable), a lumbering, stone-skinned, yet soulful alien who has now settled on Earth as penance for a crime he committed long ago. This is their story.
"A wonderful story, beautifully told." — Brynne Chandler, screenwriter for Gargoyles and Batman: The Animated Series
"Jim Cleaveland's first novel, Alien In a Small Town, is a philosophical meditation on Science and Theology. It's also a lot of fun. A truly alien extraterrestrial, appropriately named Paul, goes on a moral quest in a world of humans. From a sexy female android to space hermits, Cleaveland presents a universe of wild possibilities that never loses its moral center." — Brad Linaweaver, author of Moon of Ice and The Land Beyond Summer.

"Surrender will mean annihilation for every man, woman and child on Earth and the space colonies. We are doomed, Madison, and our only hope of survival is to destroy Deorca.”
Captain Greg Madison of the Trans-Solar Defense, is running a routine patrol with his crew when he has a strange encounter with the enemy.
The Deorcans were reptilian; ruthless invaders from beyond the Black Deeps, and they intended killing all known life forms throughout the Universes.
Then after thirty years of resource draining war, they finally lay down an ultimatum: Earth had to surrender or be destroyed by a missile that would cause the disintegration of the solar system!
While those back on Earth are navigating the surrender, Madison and his crew take aboard the Admiral with a secret mission.
They are making their way back to the Deorcan home planet to destroy it, or die trying, beginning a nightmare voyage to the Dark Constellation, home of the Deorcan home world.
When crew members start acting strangely and sabotage is discovered in the engines, Madison and the doctor begin to look for clues of this strange behavior. When crew members start seizing, they discover a connection between the strange behavior and physical ailments with an undetectable radiation, which literally causes people affected to go mad before dying.
As they traverse deep space and reach the edge of explored space, things continue to get more perilous and unexplainable.
The Dark Constellation sits in a place that they may not return from, but they push on in the hopes of their sacrifice saving those they left behind.

What you should know before you buy this book
This is a complicated book. Of all my books, it is the most complicated one. It is also a funny book, but—and how can I put that without offending you?—your sense of humour may not get it if the quality of your mind is mutilated due to watching too many mindless TV shows. As the title says, it is an unedited book. So, don’t complain about mistakes. There could be few, there could be many. If your English is below average as mine, you may be lucky and not notice any mistakes. But whatever errors you discover, they are part of the deal. Very importantly, this book is a serious read from a metaphysical and philosophical perspective. However, sadly, most of you may not understand that; some of you, however, will. What else should you know? This book is a hell of an entertaining novel with a crazy plot. So, if the metaphysical and philosophical stuff doesn’t click with you, just ignore it and focus on the plot. That should be okay as long as you don’t ask stupid questions like, “Is this realistic?” The answer to that question is always, “Yes, it is!” Everything is realistic if you see it in the context of its relevant reality. You see, this is where the crazy plot and the serious metaphysical contemplations merge. Does that sound confusing? It shouldn’t, provided that you maintained enough of your childhood’s inquisitiveness. Well, I’ll leave it at that. Just read the book. It’s not really complicated at all as long as you manage to negotiate your thinking around the little challenges mentioned above.
Initially, each of the following three parts was planned to be a separate book. However, thematically—especially from a philosophical perspective, but also as far as the plot is concerned—these three parts complement each other, and it was decided to combine them into one book.
ONE: Unedited Memories
Just in the event that Emma #2 crashed the car and killed us both or only me or should the gangsters or only one of the gangsters, which would have been enough, manage to kill me with a well-aimed bullet, if I didn’t manage to shoot him first, my other self and I decided to separate before the race so that at least one of us would survive in the event of a disaster of the kind mentioned in the first half of this “crazy” sentence.
TWO: Unedited Realities
We had this long conversation about the end of time, God’s residence, and what the universe and BMWs are really made of, at first between ourselves, then later a fly, the gentleman with the Space SUV and two robots joined us. That conversation went from Tuesday 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. the same day. That’s a long time.
On the other hand, Einstein tells us that time is an illusion, and that reality isn’t what we think it is. These are issues that needed to be clarified, which is precisely what we did.
THREE: The End of Eternity
The year is 2090. I, Carl Andrew Quinton, am 94. Inexplicably, my appearance hadn’t changed since 2018, when I was 22. There is an explanation.
This explanation represents literary and scientific breakthroughs. There is no other literary and scientific work like it and no appropriate introduction for the reading adventure that’s waiting for you could be found anywhere in the universe. So, this here will have to do.
Sounds exaggerated, I know, but it is true.
Scientists and literary critics around the world will discuss, argue and get excited about the thrilling metaphysical revelations in this book for decades to come.
You, the reader, will find out how the world was created and why it can be both at the same time, infinitely large and tiny as nothingness.

This carefully crafted ebook: "Gulliver's Travels illustrated by Arthur Rackham" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships), a misanthropic satire of humanity, was written in 1726 by Jonathan Swift. Like many other authors, Swift uses the journey as the backdrop for his satire. He invents a second author, Captain Lemuel Gulliver, who because of a series of mishaps en route to recognized ports, ends up, instead, on several unknown islands living with people and animals of unusual sizes, behaviors, and philosophies, but who, after each adventure, is somehow able to return to his home in England where he recovers from these unusual experiences and then sets out again on a new voyage. Jonathan Swift (1667 – 1745) was an Anglo-Irish poet, writer and cleric who gained reputation as a great political writer and an essayist. Jonathan, who became Dean of St. Patrick's in Dublin, is also known for his excellence in satire. His most remembered works include Gulliver's Travels, A modest Proposal, An Argument against Abolishing Christianity and A Tale of a Tub.

by Andrew J. Offutt
$0.00, 207 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (5 reviews), #15411 in Science Fiction Adventure
A strange white cat wandered about the streets of Reme while Captain Tiana Highrider, master of the pirate ship Vixen, held court.
The red-haired beauty was queen of the pirates and had seen many strange things throughout her adventures, but when a harmless blind beggar moves with the certainty of his sighted days, her instincts are prickling.
Suddenly, she and her adopted father, the mighty Caranga, are brought before the king and asked to take up the quest to return his kidnapped daughter. The king also tells of a dark power he unwittingly unleashed in his desperation to have his daughter returned; the Eyes of Sarsis – a dark power even the most commanding of magicians desire to remain buried in the earth.
At the same time, more mysterious things are happening through the city – animated bodies, mysterious orders, corpses without blood – and at all, a white cat lurks in the shadows.
Tiana’s thirst for adventure and the promised reward lead them through the city, out onto the open sea, into dangerous territory, and seeking strange lands in the quest to return the king’s daughter, find the stolen treasure, and most of all, defeat the Eyes of Sarsis, a power no man can break.
Along the way they ally with strong barbarians, magicians, unknowable creatures, and ancient beings to fight the awful power of the vampiric Eyes…

Except for 25-year-old police officer Nyle Maxwell, who can't log out. Killed in a car accident on his first day on the job, Nyle gets his mind uploaded to Capes Online to save his life. But the one way mind-to-game upload process means Nyle can never return to his physical body in the real world.

Things get even worse when a villain known as Dark Kosmos takes over Capes Online not long after Nyle's arrival. Trapping all of the players in the game and cutting off all contact with the real world, Dark Kosmos targets Nyle for death.
Now Nyle must become a true superhero and save his fellow players from Dark Kosmos while adjusting to his new digital life. All of which would be much easier if he didn't have a hyperactive sidekick overly fond of puns or if he even wanted to be here in the first place.

"Reminds me of the quality short stories from the old masters." GPD - Amazon Reviewer
Josie is just a normal girl going shopping during a deadly pandemic. But when a protest turns violent, Josie is trapped. Now she must act quick in order to live as the riot grows out of control.
If you enjoy stories about deadly viruses and the end of the world you'll enjoy this one. Inspired by modern day real life events.
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.
