The followup to the top free dystopian/post-apocalyptic book.

When the zombies arrived twenty-five years ago, the world did not end. People adapted and learned to live with them. There are two varieties of zombies. Gerries wander around slowly and aimlessly. Renals are always at an eleven. The only thing that they want is to eat, and they always sprint towards that goal.

However, now a new variety has surfaced: Revenants. These are zombies that retain their memories and personalities from when they were living.

Elliot is a Revenant ---a zombie that kept his humanity--- and a vegetarian that's not interested in eating people. On the same day that he made his first public appearance, a switch was flipped, and the world changed.

Bonnie and Tyler are teenagers in love. They have lost everything and are running for safety when they encounter a stranger.

Ray is now the protector of a boy, Little Mike. As they make their way to Ray's house, neither are sure if they are ready for what's inside.

Patrick awoke with no signs of the Survivors of Rathe. He leaves the safety of his home to search for them only to end up someplace unexpected.

Julie was at work in the tv studio when she realizes that it has been overrun by zombies.

Combining the episodic nature of TV with the in-depth character found in novels, If you like The Walking Dead and LOST, you will love this series that combines suspense, action, and fear of the unknown.

“Is this the end? The apocalypse?”


Sheriff Eli Roberts has discovered enough trouble at the mine outside of town to last him a lifetime. And he's had more life-and-death fights in the past day than most lawmen have in a career. But now he has just one mission: save his town from the dead.

As if zombies in town weren’t enough, the Sheriff also has to deal with an ornery Doctor, a saloon girl (that he's falling for), and a corrupt Mayor (who appears to know more than he's telling). To make it even worse, they’ll all have to work together if they want to live.

Melody 8: Book one: The Day of the Song
by Ernie Howard
$0.00, 57 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (7 reviews), #4 in 90-Minute Teen & Young Adult Short Reads

My mother used to sing to me when I was scared at night. She would lay beside me, and I would place my head on her chest. Hearing the song through the vibration of her body. I loved my mother's voice. Right up to the day she was put to death because of it.


My name is Melody. I was born on The Day of The Song. When the world I have never seen, changed. I came into this world just as the song stopped. If the timing had been just a little bit off I wouldn’t be writing this right now. My mother would have ripped me to shreds. The song turns good people into bloodthirsty killers. At least for ten minutes every week. Any other time people in my town are pretty boring. The only other time anyone gets killed is if they are caught singing. Preacher, our leader, takes it upon himself to head the executions. He is a much hated and loved man. I hate him. He killed my mother.

Preacher has pushed me into a new life. I am going to find where the song is broadcasted and stop it. I am going to create a new song, a new frequency. A melody that will unite us. If I don’t, what is left of civilization will be lost.

If you are a lover of post-apocalyptic stories, you need to get ready for a new twist on the genre. We must change the vibration, or the frequency will forever change us.

“Ernie has a gift that few writers have but thousands aspire to. His words...there tangible. You can not only visualize exactly what he's written but you can feel...and smell it.”Bob Williams, author of Music City Macabre

“Behind the macabre facade, and despite the sadness, there’s a lot of heart to this story, and it further strengthens Ernie Howard’s status as one of the most promising new writers on the indie scene.”Eamon Ambrose, Author of Zero Hour. This is a review of The Pool, by Ernie Howard

Egg, Psycho and Benny live to survive in an area of NE USA ravaged by the final world war a century earlier. Despite the rigours of their existence they enjoy a relatively favoured lifestyle. They rule the roost. They are the major gang in the area and relatively untroubled, despite the existence of mutants, irradiated areas of land and the occasional illness or injury.
Their lifestyle takes a turn for the worse when they encounter an enigmatic girl who persuades them to take her to the deadly and feared Hot Zone. Things will never be the same again as they tread forth into an area where they are no longer in charge of their destiny.

A colorless life by day.
What secrets are kept at Sinai?


Sealed in a biospheric dome that protects them from the deadly surface world live one hundred humans and their twelve Spirit guardians. Most nights, Éin has vivid dreams of adventure and mystery. Most days, the drudgery of a cyclical life drains the color from the other inhabitants. Yet some things are not as the Spirits say.

I am a fox, desperately protecting my kin from the crowds who would destroy us. But what are these memories of a life I never lived?

AWAKE
I keep my dreams hidden away; I must never speak of them. I try to live as obediently as I can, following every ritual and requirement. I long so deeply to grow closer to my God and to see the face of the Creator. Yet with every prayer, the Spirits give me a non-answer and turn me away from the truth I seek. What are they hiding?

For fans of Lois Lowry's The Giver and the imaginative works of Frank Herbert comes the second installment of David Gallagher's Dominion of Dreams series.

“The best what-if thriller for a long, long time — makes you think, makes you sweat, and makes you choose, between what is and what might have been.” —Lee Child

Istanbul, 1683: Mehmed IV, sultan of the Ottoman Empire, is preparing to lay siege to Vienna, capital of the Holy Roman Empire, when a mysterious visitor arrives in his bedroom—naked, covered in strange tattoos—to deliver a dangerous, world-changing message.

Paris, 2017: Ottoman flags have been flying over the great city for three hundred years, ever since its fall—along with all of Europe—to the empire’s all-conquering army. Notre Dame has been renamed the Fatih Mosque. Public spaces are segregated by gender. And Kamal Arslan Agha, a feted officer in the sultan’s secret police, is starting to question his orders.

Rumors of an impending war with the Christian Republic of America, attacks by violent extremists, and economic collapse have heightened surveillance and arrests across the empire. Tasked with surveying potential threats, Kamal has a heavy caseload—and conscience.

When a mysterious stranger—naked, covered in strange tattoos—appears on the banks of the Seine, Kamal is called in to investigate. But what he discovers is a secret buried in the empire’s past, a secret the Sultan will do anything to silence.

With the mysterious Z Protectorate one step behind, Kamal, together with Nisreen—a fierce human rights lawyer—is caught up in a race across the empire and time itself—a race that could change their world, or destroy it.

The Man Who Sold the Earth is a collection of short science fiction stories by the masterful John Russell Fearn.

The Man Who Sold the Earth features Jacob Mastervil, a man who controlled the world through money.

After the Atom tells of atomic war and one scientist's last ditch attempt to find a way to prevent this in the future with an apprentice. When an unexpected atomic blast allows them to visit the future, they find the consequences of man's actions.


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. His other works with Venture include The Golden Amazon, Waters of Eternity, and War of the Scientists.

Walking in the footsteps of giants, Daniel Hayward, is brought back into a conflict that threatens the whole of the Charted Systems, one that he had long since abandoned. When a simple job on the barren mining colony of Jotunhiem quickly becomes complicated, Daniel and the crew of the Mazu are forced to deliver the goods to Neo-Shanxi, once the home of The Family. The origins of the war between the Loyalists and Separatists, that would consume the Charted Systems, begins with a single man Dr Charles Jung, an optimistic scientific genius who made terraforming and colonisation possible. Old prejudices and paranoia cause a rift between the CERE and the Chinese colony of Delta Nine, leading the head of the Neo-Shanxi Assembly, Chairman Zhang, to seek independence from the CERE and to ensure the future of his people is left in the hands of his grandchildren, Alistair, Oscar and Wesley Jung. POST-TERRA FIMRA is a brutally savage and serenely beautiful depiction of a future not so unrecognisable from present day. With humanity in the early stages of colonising distant planets, the series explores the lives and relationships of those affected by the conflicts of political interest and the desolation of war. THE FAMILY: POST-TERRA FIRMA is a collection of books 1-5 in the POST-TERRA FIRMA series.

Lieutenant Commander Kyle West is one of Unified Fleet’s greatest fighter pilots. Every day, he leads his squadron into battle over Earth’s cities in a seemingly endless war against a vicious alien race, defending his home and his loved ones.

Millions of miles away, the Fleet’s Elite Squadron attacks from another angle, engaging the enemy on its home turf. Casualties are high, and the Squadron needs more of the Fleet’s very best. But joining the Elite is a death sentence—a surety Kyle isn’t willing to face. Until a devastating attack wipes out the family he refused to leave.

Commander Andrei Dezhnyov, an Elite Squadron gunner, isn’t sure what to make of the cocky new American pilot. Kyle is equally uncertain about the snarly Russian, but as they warm up to each other, their tentative alliance becomes a deep bond—one that endangers them both when a daring and disobedient rescue reveals secrets that call into question everything they’ve ever believed about their enemy. Secrets that their superiors would kill to protect.

Commander John Hanson recounts his harrowing adventure with the Electites of space!

Sometimes, I know, I must seem a crotchety old man. "Old John Hanson," they call me, and roll their eyes as though to say, "Of course, you have to forgive him on account of his age."
But the joke isn't always on me. Not infrequently I gain much amusement observing these cocky youngsters who strut in the blue-and-silver uniforms of the Service in which, until more or less recently, I bore the rank of Commander.
There is young Clippen, for instance, a nice, clean youngster; third officer, I believe, on the Caliobre, one of the newest ships of the Special Patrol Service. He drops in to see me as often as he has leave here at Base, to give me the latest news, and to coax a yarn, if he can, of the old days. He is courteous, respectful ... and yet just a shade condescending. The condescension of youth.
"Something new under the sun after all, sir," he commented the other day. That, incidentally, is a saying of Earth, whence the larger part of the Service's officer personnel has always been drawn. Something new under the sun! The saying probably dates back to an age long before man mastered space.
"Yes?" I leaned back more comfortably, happy, as always, to hear my native Earth tongue, and to speak it. The Universal language has its obvious advantages, but the speech of one's fathers wings thought straightest to the mind. "What now?"
"Creatures of space!" announced Clippen importantly, in the fashion of one who brings surprising news. "'Electites,' they call them. Beings who live in space-things, anyway; I don't know that you could call them beings."

Sometimes, one should be careful what one wishes for...

Life in the Navy looked far more exciting in the recruitment vids than it did in one Lieutenant’s case. It was so tedious, all it did was provide skills. He had wanted to visit other worlds, meet interesting people and experience new things. Yearning to see the outer reaches of the Abinarr Star Kingdom and beyond, young Lieutenant Theodore Lawrence turned to his estranged uncle in search of the adventure the Navy had failed to deliver. The Expeditionary Vessel Vanguard would surely be more exciting.
What he would get would be a mystery, like no other. Intrigue, danger and secrets so great, people were willing to kill to keep hidden. Now he would be in life or death struggle. He and his crewmates fates would rest on Theodore’s skills, ability, and guile, while they rewrite the history of the Star Kingdom.

The Bleeding Fist.
Something happened in the desert. Communication was lost over three years ago. The human military command structure is in shambles. Something is destroying everything in its path, military and civilian alike. Only a few people still survive. The attack tank unit Bleeding Fist, trapped on a planet far from home, no help is coming for them and no way out.

The Mongruxx, a band of mercenaries.
Lost in time and space, with their stasis unit buried in the wreckage of a Machina transport starship. Destroyed over a billion and a half standard years ago. The wreckage continued on at hyper relativistic speeds until eventually it was drawn down a gravity well and decelerated. Ending up here in this place, the white desert.

Together, they might just make it out of this alive.


Sam, the commander of the Bleeding Fist, a group of three attack tanks.
The tanker crews, a hard-bitten lot that just wants to make it through this hell hole with their naughty bits intact.
“The end is Nye” - known by the crew as the “Nye”
“Little disappointments” - known as the “Little”
“Up the river Styx” - known as the “Styx”
Joined by a civilian group of engineers, freight drivers, laborers, and other layabouts and ne'er do wells just trying to make through another day.

Golgoth, the leader of the Mongruxx. With Atilius at his side, Seneca the Ol’ bastard with his drinking skin and the rest of the Wolf Pac fighters, they will keep their promises until that final day.

Circles within circles.
Schemes and plans by the Synthocts that attempt to control and manipulate them all. The brutish Ogin lost in their animalistic fury and need to control. The cultists, mad in the worship of the old gods. And the gods themselves, watching all of this and none of it across the edges of forever.

So tighten up your body armor, make sure you keep a round in the chamber and have a good supply of cigars on hand, my friend, for it is a long walk following the path of the wolf.

Targeted by their deadliest operatives and hunted by the police for crimes he only technically committed, he is forced to live off the grid as he struggles to figure out how to get his life back.

The BushMaster Tech Battles

A voice at the back of his head told him that he should give the console to Bill that instant. Or just take it to Old Man Dave. Let the tribe leader take responsibility. But this was the most interesting thing that Eric had encountered in months. In years. And his curiosity spurred him on.

“No.” It was just a game. Besides, that kind of activity would draw attention. Though the game was smart. It had found a section of crumbling wall that provided another way into the compound if you knew where to look.

It was only moments before the sky lit up. It was if a lightning storm had suddenly appeared. Then Eric felt the whump of something loud and close and gigantic. The walls shook. Everything shook. Eric felt the vibrations deep in his own organs. He found himself on the floor. All he could see was Bill’s homemade boot and the edge of a dirty sock. The man pulled himself up to sitting.

“If that was the Hepworths, we’re in deep trouble,” Bill whispered.

$0.00, 331 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (5 reviews), #22 in Cyberpunk Science Fiction (Kindle Store)

“A rousing piece of cyberpunk adventure . . .” — Denver Post



With the power of a machine to destroy . . . And the will of a man to be free . . . Cyborg Jon Hundred faces the challenge of a lifetime.

He must tunnel through a titanic mountain on the planet of Pellay before a computerized mining machine beats him to it. The inhabitants of the pioneer settlement are betting on Jon Hundred and have wagered their lives in servitude for a chance at freedom.

But can he who is only half human conquer that which is all machine?


Praise for Steeldriver:



“A special work of art and craft . . . [DeBrandt’s] energetic prose is so vivid, graphic and concise that the book seems to become a multimedia event right there in your hand . . . If Larry Niven, Philip K. Dick and Philip José Farmer had ever spent a month drunk together, they might have shaped a book like Steeldriver. And they’ll wish they had. I sure wish I had.” — Spider Robinson

“Vibrant ideas that enrich science fiction’s cyberpunk sub-genre . . .” — Vancouver Sun

Don H. DeBrandt writes science fiction, fantasy, horror, superheroes, cyberpunk, cyberfolk, and cyberanything else. He’s also published horror fiction in Pulphouse and a novella in the SF magazine Horizons. His fiction has earned him Honorable Mentions in both the Year’s Best SF and the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. DeBrandt lives in Vancouver BC, and is notorious in certain circles of Northwest Fandom (but not for his writing). His hobbies include leather-tasting, naked laughing gas hot tubbing, and being thrown off roofs by irate hotel security. He does not plan to run for office, ever. There are too many pictures.


Chilling Effect: A Global Climate Thriller
by R.J. Pineiro
$0.00, 251 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #38 in History of Arctic & Antarctica
A RUTHLESS ECO-TERRORIST.
A WOMAN DETERMINED TO STOP HIM.
Chilling Effect, R.J. Pineiro's newest thriller, explores a world in the not too distant future where terrorism is taken to a new level, one with world-ending consequences. 
  
"Fiction of the first order!"--Clive Cussler
"Fascinating, stupendous, and terrifying."--Douglas Preston
     
You never know what you're capable of . . . until the monster inside of you pushes you beyond your moral line in the sand.  
  
These are the opening thoughts of former climatologist William Kiersted as he prepares to attack our delicate ecosystem.  He is hell-bent on avenging his father's death and will go to extremes of terrorism never before seen, all to strike a blow to those whose hubris led to his father's demise. He will take full advantage of the greed and narcissism ever-present in the world, as well as the fragility of our planet to ecological terrorism, and use it to plot a scenario so grim, yet so compellingly real it could have been ripped from today's news headlines.
   
Rachel Daly, star of the CIA's Global Climate Counterterrorism Unit, has tracked Kiersted for months, from the Greenland ice sheet to the streets of Paris and the Siberian plains.  She joins forces with SEAL Team Six and Russian Spetsnaz, in an attempt to spoil Kiersted's plan.
   
Enter Doctors Natasha Shakhiva and Konrad Malone, experts in the study of the Earth's permafrost, which gives clues to the planet's past but also to our future. They are among the very few scientists in the world who understand the global implications of Kiersted's plan to cripple humanity, if not outright destroy it.
  
Across three continents, the battle rages in this fast-paced, heart-rending thrill ride whose chilling effect will leave you fearful for the future we're leaving our children. 
     
"The opening chapter is mind-bending enough, but it only gets better, with cutting-edge science, vivid characters, and a plot that accelerates to a mind-warping-climax.  Highly recommended." 
--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of the Pendergast series of novels
  
"Pineiro's vision of what it might be evokes visceral fear."
 --Mark Berent, New York Times bestselling author of Storm Flight.
   
"Pineiro scrunches you into the ejection seat and sends you rocketing aloft." 
--Deang Ing, New York Times bestselling author of Loose Cannon.
   
"Pineiro knows how to move a story right along smartly from one crisis to the next with the tension always building . . . gets right under the reader's skin so that in the end the payoff is like Fourth of July fireworks."
--David Hagberg, USA Today bestselling author of Joshua's Hammer.

The ebook comes with 6, exclusive, high quality interior title artworks!

Some select synopses:

Atman's Oculus:
There always seems to be some talk, here and there, about the end of times, the apocalypse. Different cultures have their own theories which was popularised in recent years with the 2012 change on the Mayan calendar. But what if the true apocalypse was that which obliterated the inside of man, ruining the hopes and dreams of all. The loss of hope, direction and desire: this is the true end of things. Zane Dekker faces this as he seeks to escape his own terrible past. Driving his Streamliner truck over the wasted lands, he keeps moving, keeps drugging himself with 'Immerse' with the hopes that his mind will never have to experience his past pain again. His only redemption? It lies in the city of Akenburkt and in the technology 'The Atman's Oculus' which will look into the very depths of Zane's being and lay his soul to bare.

The Throne of the Hidden God
Failed businessman and down-on-his-luck Dr Geog Shultzer is an African-born, German entrepreneur who seeks to rise beyond his lot in life. Once he was breakout success in his youth when he started his business, but now he flies back and forth over South Africa at the whims of the Department of Land Reform to secure lands in Waterval, Corina and Machadodorp. Throughout his dealings, he begins to learn of some mystery surrounding the reason for the purchase of these land developments which, he has been informed, contain the 200 000 year old remains of an ancient metropolis. Joining his quest for knowledge and riches is Professor Rik Bauman and together they unearth a great mystery connected to the oldest culture known to man: that of Sumerian's of Ancient Mesopotamia.

The ReChronicler
In 1920s England, Doctor Grenville has made an infamous name for himself by studying extra sensory perceptions. However his research has made him a subject of ridicule among his intellectual peers. At a technology fair, the chance for glory tempts him as he encounters the mysterious Severiano, whose master holds a powerful device that is capable of editing the course of history...

Voltaire Crisper's Life Mechanic:

An odd title to be sure, but it belies a story of the creation of Voltaire Crisper: the companion made by the genius of hermit,Mikael Lavant. On the Southern hills of Wellington, New Zealand, the story begins with Voltaire's creation . The fact that Mikael names him thus shed's light on his deeper purpose for family, as it is also the same name of Mikael's grandfather who had supported him before he died. The origin of his 'Crisper' namesake coming from the methods used to bring him to life, including CRSPR gene editing/therapy. In a modern take inspired by the alienation and technology-ostracized culture of today and Mary Shelly's 1818 Frankenstein. The story continues with Voltaire Crisper's awakening and subsequent abandonment of Mikael...but a greater story of redemption of lost souls lies within.

$0.00, 226 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #7 in Crime Action Fiction (Kindle Store)

Looking for a new thriller writer to fall in love with? Get this gripping conspiracy now!



Could this really happen in the near future? For all thriller fans and readers of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne, Scott Mariani, John Lyman, David Baldacci or James Patterson.


A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor’s thesis (PhD), which fulfils not only the criteria for ‘originality’, but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.
Jason’s idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.
But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realizes that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realizes that the only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.
The race is on...



Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will ask….one of two questions:-

1: Is it really possible?

2: When will it happen?


What people have been saying about this book:-

Awesome Read: ‘I read many books and this one was one of the best I have read. I loved it and think I will read it more than twice. It was the kind of book that was almost impossible to put down. Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to everyone.’

A Thumping Good 'Must' Read!: ‘ ‘Browsing the Kindle store for something to 'unwind' me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. The characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non-believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!! Far better than the Da Vinci Code by a country mile, I am certainly recommending this to all my many friends.’

Well Written: ‘I was looking at a different book, Dan Brown Inferno and this title came up on a reviewers comments suggesting it to be worth a read. I have to agree, it is. Loved the idea of cloning Jesus and for me it was written well, had page turning elements to it but I was disappointed when it ended. In a nice way though! It does leave one hanging...’

Totally preposterous, but enthralling! : ‘I just happened on this book while browsing to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let's be honest - recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to anyone else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is - a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!’

Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book Two free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

Yugoslav People’s Army brats Jovana and Hristijan grew up in a secluded border-watch compound, dreaming of grander horizons. They get their wish in the worst way possible when Predrag, a rogue Army captain, kidnaps Jovana for no apparent reason. Hristijan manages to rescue her, but their ordeals are far from over.


On the run, they uncover the shocking secret behind Jovana’s upbringing: she is the chosen successor to Maršal Josip Broz Tito. With Yugoslavia on the brink of collapse, it is her duty to keep order among the country’s quarrelsome nationalities – and stop the Serbs from grabbing power. There’s only one tiny problem: Jovana was never trained to take on her new role as the only hope for a unified Yugoslavia.


Joining forces with a hard-fighting mute girl, Jovana and Hristijan must make their way to Slovenia to prevent its secession from the Yugoslav Federation. To get there, they will have to outwit Predrag, who is determined to capture Jovana and win the approval of his Serb nationalist father.


The fate of Yugoslavia now rests with a band of snarky teenagers. Armed with nothing but a few guns and an old Army truck, they are about to make their mark on history.

Mars Hostages
by M.G. Cooper
$0.00, 621 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #2604 in Science Fiction (Kindle Store)
Humans will set foot on Mars sooner or later, because of this I decided to put all my ideas together and write a story about the First Human Mission to explore Mars. From the creation of a World Space Exploration Organization to the elaboration of whole plan to reach the objective, and the execution of the mission that I called Terra-1; for this I considered Human aspects and technical issues. Keeping the goal to land on Mars by early 2032.

I realized that if I wrote it that way, maybe many readers would consider it too technical, so I decided to include some mystery; then it became a Science/Science-fiction/thriller book. To make sense an important topic in the book is the protection of the Earth, the fight against Global Warming and climate change, you will discover why.

This combination of themes forms the body of my novel “Mars Hostages”.

Here is the description:

While Marsnauts were exploring the Red Planet, someone was fighting to Save the Earth.

In 2032, the first Human expedition of Mars was taking place, a great moment for humanity; the crew consisted of international members, a team of Marsnauts as they were called, two of them remained on Mars Orbit and four landed on the surface of the planet.

The mission went very smoothly, just few technical glitches, their goal was to stay on the surface of Mars for near one Earth year, and set up the first Mars Base formed by a Lab, Greenhouse and a rover, this Mars Base was named Terra Camp and was the foundation to assemble a bigger base by future missions.

The time came to lift off from Mars and rendezvous with the orbiting crew and from there begin the journey back to Earth.
Something went wrong, the lift off engines of the Mars Lander did not start, Mission control was looking at all the possible situations; simulations were carried out but nothing seemed to be wrong, until a phone call was received to let them know that the real problem was beyond their reach.

The Crew had limited supplies, the longer time they had to remain on the surface the longer time they would require to reach Earth.

Someone, somewhere on Earth has taken control of the Mission, but, who and Why?

Scientists, engineers and Interpol have a few days to discover who was behind this situation and why, and to find an alternate way to lift off from Mars, all efforts were focused on the safety of the crew. The World came together wishing the crew a safe return.

This is not a Novel about the new Space Race; on the contrary, it is about international cooperation and synergy to achieve one goal: the design and development of the first Human Mission to Mars, opening the way to have permanent human presence there. This is the story of a dream that came true, the human spirit of exploration that reaches an objective with Imagination, collaboration and the will to do it. This is also a story about the Earth, about caring for our only home in the universe.

This is a story of hope, survival and environmental awareness.

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.
