Fatal glitches. A corporate cover-up. And something haunting the depths…
Three years ago, a horrific accident closed ACM-1134, the energy mine on Ketarus-4. Now the mine has reopened, and Justin Barclay has joined the first new batch of miners hired to begin harvesting the energy stored below the planet’s surface.
But as he settles into his new job and home, Justin quickly discovers that the mine’s polished exterior is masking a host of hidden dangers—some of them fatal. When the mine’s technology begins malfunctioning, Justin’s coworkers mysteriously disappear, get injured, and some even die. Justin knows something else is going on—and he’s the only one willing to do something to stop it.
With his job and his life on the line, Justin works to uncover the mine’s darkest secrets to save himself and his fellow workers. But the company doesn’t like Justin digging where he shouldn’t be, and they’re determined to put a stop to his inquest once and for all—at any cost.
As Justin begins to unearth the mine’s darkest secrets, he starts to realize that sometimes it’s better to let the past stay buried.
The Ghost Mine is a gripping sci-fi/horror novel sure to thrill you and chill you late into the night. If you’re a fan of Ridley Scott’s Aliens, you’ll love this book.
"Wow! The Ghost Mine is a phenomenal story. Ben Wolf excels at so many elements of storytelling, it’s impossible to identify a single gem: richly developed characters; a fascinating and detailed future of machine-human hybrids and deep-space mining operations; an intriguing mystery; shocking-yet-believable twists; breakneck action; and more than a few leave-the-lights-on/eye-watering moments of sheer terror.
Now imagine all this in the hands of a deft wordsmith. Man! Think Aliens meets Ender’s Game meets Rambo.
Taut, vivid, and captivating, The Ghost Mine will leave you breathlessly bandaging paper cuts from flipping the pages so fast. This one’s a definite winner."
—Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of the Immortal Files and Dreamhouse Kings series
“A snappy, fun, wild ride from hell! Wolf’s knockout novel brings all the sci-fi intensity of Ridley Scott’s Alien movies together with a Michael Crichton style thriller. When space colonization goes wrong in The Ghost Mine, it means a long, nail-biting night of sheer reading delight! Positively unputdownable!” - Brandon Barr, USA Today Bestseller and author of the Song of the World Series

Interview with the Author
Q - What makes the Feast of Weeds series special?
An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I wanted to write something I would love to read. I've always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and thought about end-of-the-world books I’ve loved--Stephen King's The Stand, Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower. But also recent stories like The Girl With All the Gifts, The Passage, and even Stranger Things. I’ve always found stories with big epidemics/events that reinvent the world so thrilling. I also love getting into some of the science, like the genetic engineering, that would make the situations plausible.
Feast of Weeds gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but...without giving too much away...I guarantee you've never read a zombie series like Feast of Weeds before.
Even though my cast of characters are teenagers I’ve definitely had plenty of adults write me about how much they’ve enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too.
No matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you furiously turning those pages.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence:
Q - Why should readers give these books a try?
The prequel hit #5 on the New York Times and #8 on the USA Today bestseller lists. I've gotten tons of emails from readers letting me know how much they loved Feast of Weeds (stay-up-all-night-even-with-work-the-next-day love). But more than that, as a reader myself, I am always looking for the next Stranger Things, The Passage, The Girl With All The Gifts. THAT'S the kind of story I hope you'll find in Feast of Weeds. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases).
Feast of Weeds is a fast, dark apocalyptic ride. Just remember...nothing is what it seems.

by NE French
$0.00, 317 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #206 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Post-Apocalyptic
BETTER: A dystopian thriller. Witty, snarky and nicely grim.
A post-apocalyptic America is overrun by super-virulent-viruses. The surviving population is controlled by pharmaceutical superpowers. Citizens are assigned a grade based on their perceived value to the technocracy. This grade determines the quality of healthcare they receive. Many citizens are forced into slavery merely to get the minimum cover needed to survive. Few dare to oppose the system and those that do don’t tend to live long.
It’s Faith’s seventeenth birthday and it seems, so far, her attempts to buck the system have failed: she couldn’t complete her resistance mission, got infected and getting cured got her in debt to the very corporation she’d been trying to attack. Now she’s forced to work for the enemy. If that wasn’t bad enough she’s been relocated to a high-risk compound where her chances of survival are slim...
"I’m out of time.”
But things are not quite as they seem. Faith is playing a long game and others are about to get played. In particular, a certain Forces Commander…
“He reckons he’s got me all figured out. He has no clue.”
Or perhaps Faith has underestimated her adversary. It wouldn't be the first time...
Classic dystopian futurism with a brilliant, intense and sardonic heroine. A gripping and potent read.

APOCALYPSE is the fifth and final book in the 5-book Novum series, which is now available in one massive (>600 page) volume called "Novum Chronicles" exclusively on Amazon!
If you asked the people of Civica what they fear more than the Novum; the mythical ship-eating creature that roams the black water beyond their colony's protective borders, they will tell you it is the Betas; a race of artificial humans created by their ancestors long ago and cast out after the destruction of Earth, the so-called Fall of Man.
Now, in the midst of a bloody civil war, those same people have no idea what new danger is fast approaching their colony, and why the return of a small and unassuming cargo sub called the Rogue Wave will either help trigger humanity's final apocalypse, or be the key to its future survival under the sea.

Led to believe Adolf Hitler gave his life to ensure Germany’s bright future, what unfolded isn't what anyone expected. With Enforcers in the streets to maintain order, citizens go about their lives in fear of stepping outside their bounds. Whispers of the horror awaiting those who go against the Enforcers are more than enough to keep people in line.

You're invited to explore Havenworld, a series of stories and characters in an exciting new connected universe. Read the stories, then vote for your favorite to become the next novel!
Imagine a world broken. Where humanity believed their only chance of survival was hibernation in stasis chambers until the day arrived to claim the world as theirs again.
Imagine a dystopian future where glittering cities exist alongside unchecked wilderness, where one can stumble from a cyberpunk setting into a post-apocalyptic one. Imagine the strange and wondrous sites and residents of such a place.
If you can imagine that, you might just be in Havenworld.
After the Cataclysm nearly wiped out humanity, the remnants of mankind survived in Havens: city-sized constructs built to reboot society and usher in a new age of civilization.
However, the new age was not the type the architects had envisioned. The same greed and lust for power that existed before the Cataclysm resurfaced and the Havens quickly became quagmires of political and economic conflict, threatening to destroy the future envisioned by their founders.
This is a world where an indecisive young man can witness the end of all things. Where a boy's impending death can lead to a new life. Where a girl's escape from captivity still may not free her. Where the naivety of youth can be manipulated for evil deeds. Where taking on that last job might be the worst mistake a desperate hacker ever makes.
One of these stories will become a full-length novel. Your vote counts, you make the call!

| Cyberside: Beta|
by Aleksey Savchenko
$0.00, 115 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #13 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Cyberpunk
Classic Cyberpunk with some refreshing twists
Set in a dystopian future, humanity has escaped the decaying physical landscape of Earth by transferring its collective conciseness into the digital world known as the Cyberside. Though designed to be a utopia, the Cyberside has quickly devolved into a chaotic, dangerous digital landscape. The story follows two main characters: a monster hunter, James Reynolds, and an "information vampire", Matilda. James has lived his entire life in the Cyberside as his stoic, no-nonsense persona, “Taciturn.” Matilda, on the other hand, is a frenzied bundle of emotions and desires.
Originally hired to eliminate the Matilda, James finds himself at the center of a diabolical conspiracy. Together they will journey to reload the supervising AI System and unveil the mystery behind its original architecture.
A world to explore, a message to consider…
Cyberside is a science fiction novel that explores human emotions. Written with a focus on characters as much as technology, Cyberside is an allegorical take on the role of progress and technology in the modern world; while focusing on recapturing humanity in an otherwise cold, often inhuman landscape. It’s a journey through the tech ridden world of the Cyberside through the eyes of two disparate characters thrust into an adventure together.

| Schrödinger’s Elephant|
by Jonathan Frame
$0.00, 533 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #533 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Dystopian
The End of Man. The Future of Woman.
Schrödinger’s Elephant is collection of five novellas, inspired by the work of ethologist John B. Calhoun who defined the term Behavioural Sink to describe the collapse of society resulting from overcrowding. These stories take points in a history where the crisis of overpopulation is resolved by women uniting to eradicate men completely from the world, to continue humanity’s journey as a single-gender species. And the resulting consequence of that.
Why Schrödinger’s Elephant? The Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger said “Imagine a cat in a box. Quantum mechanics implies the cat is both alive and dead until the box is opened and its state can be determined”. And with that, the thought experiment Schrödinger Cat was conceived.
Schrödinger’s Elephant takes the idea of the Elephant In The Room, the subject no one is prepared to discuss, to be the ever-expanding global human population and the resulting environmental and social consequences - depletion of natural resources, the increase in violence as more and more people compete for survival. Only that particular Elephant is in the next room, the room politicians and world leaders ignore, the room no-one dares open the door to, for fear what state they may find.
The five novellas are
Universe N :- A scientist despairing of the human race attempts to introduce a virulent flu epidemic to cull the human population to a more manageable number
Spark :- A series of attacks on women ignites the switch where women first band together to defend themselves against the rising tide of crimes against their gender by men.
Born of Woman :- Set several years after Spark, a group of men are on the run and being hunted down by the authorities. They believe they are some of the last men left alive on the planet.
Alphabet :- In a world populated by women, one woman investigates a Collective in the belief its members are illegally trying to create male babies. At the same time, the world’s paediatric scientists are trying to engineer foetuses to produce women who are capable of reproducing parthenogenetically, that is the ability to self-fertilize.
Only Human :- A lone woman travels through the world, pursued by a vicious pack of creatures that threaten to kill her.
| The Vancouver Model: Landed Money is Foreign Money: How Excessive Wealth-based Immigration can Hyperinflate a Housing Market|
by Dr. Eric C. Sayre
$0.00, 112 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #11 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Political
This is not an anti-immigration book. Historically, immigration has been important to countries with low natural birth rates (including Canada). Benefits include a predictable growth in the working population, cultural diversity, and infusion of new ideas into arts and science. Nations like Canada are built on this premise. I have friends and coworkers who are immigrants, recent and otherwise. My mother is twice an immigrant, first moving to the USA from Poland as a child, then immigrating to Canada with my father as a young adult. Immigration is an important part of who we are as Canadians.
But too much of a good thing can be harmful. Canada has aggressively increased its annual immigration targets, and this is accelerating. Current projections take us from 310,000 in 2018 to 340,000 by 2020, with some projecting 450,000 per year by 2021. Unless this influx is matched by an accelerating growth in housing stocks, upward pressure results on housing prices. Compounding this, if the immigrants we admit are preferentially wealthy, it is as if we allowed foreign buyers unfettered access to our real estate. Official foreign buyer numbers remain low, even while vast amounts of foreign capital are used to outbid local-earning would-be buyers, yet this capital is not counted or taxed as foreign, due largely to politics.
Indeed, the connection between immigration and real estate prices is such a political hot potato that no one in the mainstream media—let alone any politician—will discuss it at all. It is however the topic of this book, albeit, in a fictional, near-future setting, in which the Canadians are the migrants with the much stronger currency, buying up the real estate in the relatively poor nation of Ghana under invitation from the Ghana Immigrant Investor Program (GIIP). And just as published statistics have shown that the vast majority of multi-millionaire migrants entering Canada today through the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program end up thousands of miles from Quebec (their top destination is Vancouver, BC), those entering Ghana via the GIIP nearly all land in the coastal city of Zoya. Under both policies (the real and the fictional), the governments’ preference for attracting the wealthiest foreign migrants it can is so blatant as to be built into the names of these policies.
The Vancouver Model: Landed Money is Foreign Money begins in one author’s vision of a 2029 dystopian Vancouver, BC, in which in which extreme overpopulation resulting from excessive, wealth-based immigration has combined with hyperinflation brought on by decades of cheap money and foreign capital, to trigger an exodus of Canadians seeking better lives elsewhere. Their preferred destination? Zoya, a picturesque harbor city of four million people in the developing African nation of Ghana. The Ghanaian government welcomes wealthy Canadian migrants as they believe this may accelerate Ghana towards first-world status. But just as we see in present-day Canada, not all Ghanaians benefit from this policy. The harbor city of Zoya is particularly affected, as its temperate climate and picturesque beauty have made it the top choice for immigrating Canadians, many even dubbing it the “new Vancouver”.
This book follows two families—one Canadian and one Ghanaian—as they navigate differing paths through a period of unprecedented global migration between Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Zoya, Ghana.
The author, Eric C. Sayre, PhD, is a statistician and researcher currently living in Vancouver, BC. Besides being an author, he is a well-published scientist, with over 250 publications between 1997 and 2018, including a mixture of first-authorships and coauthorships on articles published in peer-reviewed medical journals, abstracts presented at scientific meetings, research reports and invited talks.

Q: When is a secret not a secret ?
A: When it is TOP SECRET just like Roswell and Area 51, etc.
Here is another example from a “Deep state” Top Secret conversation accidently ‘overheard’ by an engineer whilst repairing a voice operated TV from the presidential suite.
An ongoing secret executive commission enquiry is actively down playing this leak from ‘whistle blowing’ status to a tin whistle ‘toot’ of absolutely no importance to National Security. And I quote “...the sort of thing you read as a short story in the ‘cherry picking’ series of eBooks, Odd Reads: for busy people.” End of quote.

Fans of Farscape and Killjoys will love the crew of the Ghost.
Wil Calder was an astronaut testing Earth’s first Faster Than Light engine in an experimental space pod when he ended up stranded on the opposite side of the solar system. Even if NASA could come to get him, they didn’t know where to look.
But that was years ago.
Now, Wil is a lonely intergalactic outlaw and smuggler, looking for a crew, because space is lonely and boring. He’s got a ship, now he needs some friends or at least people to work with, maybe boss around a little.
What he isn’t looking for, is a plot that would destabilize the entire Galactic Commonwealth. A scheme he and his new crew aren't remotely qualified to stop, but who looks at qualifications these days? They can’t just turn their backs on the galaxy, can they?
Between epic space battles, a quest for redemption and a daring heist, the crew uncovers a dangerous secret.
If you tried to cross the Buck Rogers TV Show from the early 80's with the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, you'd come close to the rollicking good fun of this classic space opera.
Join the crew of the Ghost on the first of many fantastic adventures.

SEVEN DOORS TO SEVEN ROOMS OF THOUGHT
1 Accept the statement of Eminent Authority without basis, without question.
2 Disagree with the statement without basis, out of general contrariness.
3 Perhaps the statement is true, but what if it isn't? How then to account for the phenomenon?
4 How much of the statement rationalizes to suit man's purpose that he and his shall be ascendant at the center of things?
5 What if the minor should become major, the recessive dominant, the obscure prevalent?
6 What if the statement were reversible, that which is considered effect is really cause?
7 What if the natural law perceived in one field also operates unperceived in all other phases of science? What if there be only one natural law manifesting itself, as yet, to us in many facets because we cannot apperceive the whole, of which we have gained only the most elementary glimpses, with which we can cope only at the crudest level?
And are those still other doors, yet undefined,
on down the corridor?

He accidentally found out what was going on in the universe. He wanted to do something about it – that was his first mistake! Then he tried to run – mistake number 2! Now “they” are closing in and earth and the rest of the galaxy will never be the same again.
SOMETIMES PEOPLE REALLY DO THINGS TO HELP OTHERS AND SOMETIMES THE “GENTLE SCIENTIFIC TYPE” CAN BECOME QUITE THE HERO!
Sample of this book:
"The night was very black and in the distance the headlights were very faint indeed. The sensor noted the light, measured its length and performed a hundred different calculations on them and their source and after a short time it was satisfied that there was no danger to the things in its care and returned to close quarter's surveillance mode.
In the distance the lights grew larger and came to a stop on the road near the sensor. A pair of feet emerged from the driver's side of the car and the stranger got out. He was a tall, broad shouldered man and quite handsome in all appearance. Yet a close look at his features would reveal that this entity was slightly irritated.
In a gruff and restrained voice he said, "Discontinue physical mode" and walked off in the direction of the sensor. Behind him there was a faint buzz and the space where the car stood was now empty. If a time monitor were available and pointed at that particular spot, one would have seen the jet-black car shimmer, turn slightly silver and fade.
The man stopped and looked around. The car was gone and he surveyed his location. The moon was just showing up in the distance and with his enhanced vision he could clearly see for miles and miles around him. He was in a valley of sorts and the trees were thick near the center of the valley. He checked the main highway about five miles away and all was quiet and he continued his walk towards the center of the trees. He was about fifty miles from Belize, halfway to the next town called Stann Creek. All was quiet as it always was in Belize, British Honduras, Central America, before the rainy-season. He had just returned from one of his monitoring stations in the rain forest.
He approached a large boulder with trees tightly packed around it and paused. He scanned the area for about three miles around and noting that nothing stirred and that the sensors were quiet, he uttered "Open" and the face of the bolder, a space about ten feet high and just as wide, seemed to dissolve before his eyes."

That day has come.
It’s time to let Vira out.
But her secret identity must be shielded, and there’s only one man who can do that. Lieutenant Park. He’s meant to be adaptable – but he’ll have to be more if he has any hope of controlling the socially awkward Vira. Worse, when he finds himself at the foot of a growing conspiracy that could swallow the Coalition whole, he’ll find he’ll have to trust her. But will she ever trust him?
Vira is the seventh instalment in the Galactic Coalition Academy meta-series.

You’ve thought about them since you were a small child…people who could fly without the aid of a manmade mechanical device. I’m not talking about dragons, wyverns, or the Thunderbird legend of the American Southwest. Those don’t resemble humans at all. I’m talking about what appear to be humans or human-like creatures flying over us without the assistance of a manmade flight device. Some appear to have wings, while others simply are able to levitate high above the ground. Maybe you’ve even had a dream or two about having the ability to fly over the countryside, high above the trees, as if you were a giant bird. Anyone who has been to Sunday School or studied the Bible will confirm that men and women with the ability to fly, better known as angels, have existed since the beginning of time –long before mankind walked the Earth. Practically all major religions make reference to some type of manlike being who has the ability to soar through the air. Some people will testify under oath that they have witnessed flight by creatures they believe were human, or at least humanoid. Then, of course, there are others who will quickly dismiss such statements as pure fantasy. Let’s take a closer look at the possibility of the existence of flying humanoids.

Paul Grayson walked the city street slowly. He was sauntering towards the spaceport, but he was in no hurry. He had allowed himself plenty of time to breathe the fresh spring air, to listen to the myriad of sounds made by his fellow men, and to revel in the grand freedom that being out in the open gave him. Soon enough he would be breathing canned air, pungent with the odor of compressor oil and the tang of the greenery used to replenish the oxygen, unable to walk freely more than a few dozen steps, and unable to see what lies beyond his viewports.
Occasionally his eyes looked along the low southern sky towards Alpha Centauri. Proxima, of course, could not be resolved by the naked eye, much less the stinking little overheated mote that rotated about Proxima. Obviously unfit for human life and patently incapable of spawning life of its own, it was Paul Grayson's destination, and would be his home for a few days or a few weeks depending entirely upon whether things went good or bad.
Only during the last four out of two thousand millions of years of its life had this planet been useful. Man needed a place to stand; not to move the earth with Archimedes's lever but to survey the galaxy. Proxima Centauri I was the only planet in the trinary and as bad as it was, it was useful for a space station.
In an hour, Paul Grayson would be locked in a capsule of metal hurling himself through space towards Proxima I. He was looking forward to ten days cooped up in a spacecraft of the type furnished by the Bureau of Astrogation to its engineers which was a far cry from the sumptuous craft run by the Big Brass. His confines would be lined with functional scientific equipment; his air supply would be medically acceptable but aesthetically horrible; and his vision limited to the cabin, for beyond the viewports would be only the formless, endless, abysmal blackness of absolutely nothing while the ship mounted into multiples of the speed of light...

No good deed goes unpunished.
The historian Kel Cam enjoyed a pleasant life in Azera, the colorful capital of the Azere Empire. In the dark days, he taught classes at the University. In the bright days, he traveled the wide steppes to visit Blue Order communities, seeking clues about the mysterious, long dead civilization of the Elders in their libraries of ancient texts. However, when his best friend, Lefe Sol, the son of the ruler of Azere, discovers that his father has arranged his marriage to Ren Loh, the fourth daughter of the Empress of Jasmyne, Kel offers to stand by and help Lefe deal with his unexpected, and unwanted, bride-to-be. Kel soon finds himself caught up in the intrigues of empires which not only upset his well ordered life – they lay it to ruin.
"Beneath the Lanterns" is an old fashioned novel of adventure and travel set in an imaginary land – a land of colorful cities, sweeping steppes, and lush valleys littered with the ruins of a lost advanced civilization. It is a world of sixteen days of day light under the Yellow Lantern and sixteen days of night lit by the Blue Lantern. And across this wide and wild world under the Yellow and Blue Lanterns, Kel Cam finds that he must flee for his freedom, if not his life.
"Beneath the Lanterns" is C. Litka’s fifth novel. As with all of his novels, this new, stand alone story, features richly drawn and engaging characters, imaginative settings, humor, and lighthearted adventure.

'When you’re in hell, only demons can save you...'
For a thousand suns humanity has lived on this world, a world of advanced knowledge and medieval ways, a world whose history has been lost in a fog of tales and fragments of ancient learning.
Upon this planet a young man is betrayed and sold by those he called family. Lost and alone, he discovers a weapon more powerful than anything he could imagine. Now, holding the power to level entire cities, he may be the last hope for a humanity on the edge of extinction.
But the howl of the pack has changed, and what was once a sound of comfort and protection brings only terror as it echoes across the mountains.
When high technology meets low society, when the natural clashes with the artificial, when the very world itself seems bent on eradicating humankind, those caught in the middle must choose, though every choice brings with it its own loss.
A choice between humanity, and the pack.
Spanning time, space, and consciousness, The Pack is a 90,000 word stand-alone novel.

Dr. Tex Arcana and the Cult of the Relics finds Tex and his crew uncovering the lost treasures of the martyred saints and sinners from the Bible!
Honey became serious before she said, "When I was as good as dead in that coma last year, my spirit traveled to Heaven. I can't describe to you how wonderful it was. The flowers and plants weren't just alive; it was as if they had cute personalities too. They spoke to me.
I talked with all of the apostles too. They told me about their few regrets in life. There was always one thing that they had left undone that they would have done differently.
Then I saw the Lord. He held my hand so that I would not fall down at His feet. He told me to right the wrongs for them. You and I will reveal their treasures of those celebrated saints to the world and prove that the Bible is the Word of the one true God."
Tex nodded with the hope that his bride would believe that he truly understood the enormity of her message before he said, "Each apostle, saint, and sinner named in the Bible left behind relics to be revealed. But where are they?"

Broken Bones & Ten Dollar Bills is an anthology of science fiction stories that explore our relationship with body altering technology, be that genetics or other techs. Read stories that explore our relationship with technology but also those people who traffic in these goods, those scientists who invent them and the corporations who profit from our awkwardness about being embodied.
These stories aren't light and fluffy, they're packed full of "what if", "how can" and action. If the visions of these authors are anything to go by, humanity is in for dark times.

A short Science Fiction tale about an impossibility and the investigation into it. Outer space. Other planets and an interesting Artificial Intelligence.
Sample of the Book:
"His personal Anti Grav Unit was acting up again for the third time this month and he was not pleased. Just back from searching the Rocklands for evidence of reported Silica migration, it had been necessary for him to repair his AGP unit twice due to dust in its most sensitive parts. It was time to trade it in for a newer model.
Taurant Anderson, six feet three inches tall with a rugged but handsome face and a lean muscular body with an adventurous and prankish attitude toward life, was considered "The" Silica expert on 23rd century Earth. It had started off as a hobby in his school years and his insatiable curiosity lead him into the most extensive study of the formation, structure and later the function of sand and rocks, ever done.
The profession did not pay particularly well, but he enjoyed his work and was fairly well off. His lifestyle could be considered modest by some, but he was more concerned with how much fun he was having. When he was not out exploring some far off region of the planet, he enjoyed his quiet life in his subterranean complex with his computer and its sophisticated interplanetary links.
As a matter of fact he was not really interested in repairing his AGP Unit, at this particular moment, at all. He was actually thinking of the communications and mail that was waiting for him in his computer database. There was a lot to catch up on.
With a casual shrug, he stored the unit in his utility closet and headed for the lounge. 'I'll get to you later' he thought as he descended the stairs to his den. The closer he got to his computer the more excited he became. He was eager to find out what was happening on the various planets he was in communication with. At last count he was accessing some two hundred news bases and was inter-linked with seventy-three planets in this sector of the galaxy.
Taurant walked up to the smooth titanium security door of his den and entered the seven digit manual code and said 'Access T. Anderson Bravo Delta Two'. The security computer matched the voiceprint of his vocal access code with the manual code and satisfied, opened the door.
He entered, said 'lights' and sat at the central console of his interplanetary link and activated the computer as the den flooded with lights."

Sometimes in facing your fears, you discover a truth you wouldn't believe.
An entire town has vanished. And so has the world's greatest scientific mind, Fenton Treeby. The Internal Security Bureau wants answers and fast. ISB Agent Steve Boardman, is assigned to the case, but it's his first week back on the job after recovering from severe work-related PTSD. To make matters worse, his assigned partner, Lynna, is as busy trying to prove he's crazy as she is looking for a way to pin the disappearance on the Pan-Asians.
Boardman has a different theory. One that might be just enough to confirm Lynna’s idea that he’s cracked up. Can he prove her wrong and keep himself together long enough to discover what really happened to Fenton Treeby and the town?
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.
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.
