Most folks don't have "survive the zombie apocalypse" on their bucket list. Thelma was no different.
But when the undead start roaming, the 85-year-old farm owner is forced to put her feisty and stubborn nature to a new use.
Turns out, zombies are basically just another invasive critter that only responds to some lead between the eyes.
When Thelma must face the fact that her family is gone, she turns her rage on the virus which killed them.
She doesn't know if it'll be the zombies or old age that will get her first.
But gosh darn it if she won't go down swinging, and take as many of them with her as she can.
If she can manage to save a few other people in the process of kicking the zombie apocalypse's butt, well, that'll just be icing on the cake.

Three weeks later, Roger considers himself lucky to still be alive. He has a fortified base and hopes that he'll soon find more survivors. But winter is fast approaching, and if he doesn't find a more long-term solution for food and shelter, it'll be a toss-up between whether the zombies or hunger and exposure get to him first.
When a zombie battle leaves Roger with a bite wound, his survival becomes even more precarious. Even the possibility of other survivors is small consolation when the fever takes hold.
How can he survive if the virus already courses through his veins?

I have a list of acceptable ways to die.
Zombie bite is not on that list.
I'm Keiko Seaburn, and if one more person calls me the Blind Ninja of Alabama, they’re getting a katana shoved someplace they don't want one. I have a few orifices you can pick from. None of them are pleasant.
And the next person to patronize or pity me will suffer the same fate. I'm fine the way I am. Keep your head down and your mouth shut, and I'll take you to your safe zone and teach you how to survive like I have.
Oh, and one more thing. Don’t you dare tell me what I can or can’t do.

Until Nothing Remains
The United States has experienced its share of turmoil over the years.
Although not particularly war-torn or stricken with genocide and violent crime as other nations, over time, gun violence and terror attacks have become commonplace on American soil.
Never before has the United States been subjected to widespread, coordinated terrorist attacks, devastating enough to bring the entire nation to its knees. Until now.
In this first volume of his Gun Play series, post-apocalyptic author C.A. Rudolph will engage you with the tale of two families from wholly diverse walks of life: a husband and wife immersed in a clandestine existence of murder-for-hire, espionage, and intrigue, and a mainstream middle-class family of six.
Each will find themselves affected by an onslaught of terror attacks the likes of which the world has never seen. Each must learn to survive…or succumb.
A silent enemy lurks among them, and no one knows when they plan to strike. When they do, it will only be a matter of time Until Nothing Remains.

Over twenty years later, the humans have finally discovered the truth behind their invasion, albeit too late.

$0.00, 245 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #244 in Science Fiction Adventure
Why do we strive to explore, to travel, to go far and beyond?
Is it really in our nature, as humans, to want to discover what is beyond our line of sight? Or are we searching for somewhere that was once our real home?
The Mars Chronicles series brings you to a reality that may not be too far from the present. It brings you to a time when humans are no longer confined to a single planet, but rather, they have become a multi-planetary species. It brings you to a time when the red planet, Mars, has already been colonised for decades. Mars has become another home to humanity, a place where major settlements, known as PODS, have been built throughout, each serving a unique purpose.
But more specifically, Mars Chronicles tells you the story of a scientist named Aldrick Idramla as he wakes up to a world he no longer remembers, his memories somehow erased after an explosion in his workplace, PODS-6. The world he lives in becomes filled with too many unfamiliar familiar things. He would have to journey through Mars within a vessel he built, called a RAPTOR, in hopes of replenishing his supplies. All the while, getting to befriend the voice of his artificial intelligence driven assistant, Neo. And someone else he meets along the way, Elarya.
His journey would be bound to have an endless supply of unwanted surprises, one of them is Damon, who somehow, seems to be rather persistent in making Aldrick's life a living hell.
This is a story of survival.

by Old Bean Design
$0.00, 99 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #xx in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Post-Apocalyptic
Welcome to the bizarre and nightmarish world of the Citizen Survivors. Not quite true and not quite false; not quite comedy and not quite horror.
‘Crumpet! Nothing distracts irksome men like crumpet!’, a drunken voice bellowed from Strangers' Bar. The voice would have probably been ignored, had it not happened to have belonged to a member of His Majesty's XXII Committee, who had recently dispossessed the parliamentarians in the 1940s and were keen to flex their muscles.
As a result, this inebriated idea was destined to become a reality. The Southern Herald newspaper was given the dubious task of resurrecting the provocative 'Page 7 Girls'. The concept of this being to titillate and distract the populace from the horrors of the day and, in the words of one merry member, ‘To keep the bastards quiet’.
Here then, against the backdrop of a defeated Britain destroying itself from within, is a collection of draft 'Page 7 Girls’. As you will see, they have been desperately cobbled together by a panicked editor and his team from what pictures, and models, still remained after the results of the Great Tribulation. The editor’s notes and comments have also been included.

From Book 1: “The human race will ultimately be responsible for its own demise. It is with great certainty that I alert you of this now, and you heed my warnings. What we have called the ‘benefits culture’ for hundreds of years has caused profound chaos to our world and its economy, and it is damage I fear we will not return from.” President of the USA, Harold Chant, the year 2465.
“We need to find alternative fuels and a cure for overpopulation. But short of a miracle or genocide, I fear it’s too late…” Queen Anastasia of England, the year 2989.
Against all foretelling and scientific proof, humans have ruined their home, Earth. Overpopulation and the misuse of valuable fossil fuels have resulted in the end of the world fast approaching, and many believe it might be too late to stop it.
With that fear very much in mind, in the year 3030, an alien race called the Thrakorian’s stepped in to take charge of the Earth and its inhabitants, but at a price.
Rather than leading by fear, the Thrakorian’s have ensured the loyalty and servitude of the human race through gratitude and a sense of purpose they’d been lacking for generations. But can their savior’s really be as generous as they seem?
Years later, and rebel forces are intent on bringing down their new governing race, and Earth’s new leader atop it. Loyal humans must fight against their own, but to what end, and for whose agenda?
Young Kyra Millan is a girl from the slums with a valuable mind. She’s intent on fighting her way up the social ladders and starting a new life based on her own merit, and will do anything it takes to reach her peak. Kyra also harbors a strange and unusual secret though, and it’s one she holds so precious it consumes her. Before long it becomes clear that all is not what it seems, but when you’re in too deep can you ever come back, and would you even want to?
Kyra must decide, and with everything on the line she’ll have to prove herself if she wants to survive.

Hope is the only difference between the world's saviour and its destroyer.
Konstantin Simonovsky has completed The Celestial Anvil, a weather-control superweapon capable of spawning a mega hurricane strong enough to flatten a megalopolis within hours. He tested it, and more than ten million civilians lost their lives.
Audi Prabian is hell-bent on stopping Konstantin from delivering Celestial Anvil back to Konstantin's true master, The Cypriot Brotherhood, a spacefaring civilization which aims to conquer The Crowned Confederacy and forcefully impose their system. Together with his allies: Bryant McGowan, Charlotte Payne, Christina Casillas, and Rachele Ciano, they aim to ambush Konstantin's convoys and destroy the superweapon.
However, Konstantin unleashes his true power and pushes them back. With the planet engulfed in civil unrest, they have no reinforcement, and it is only hours until Konstantin fires his superweapon upon the next major city.
In this arc finale, The Bandana Boy's faith in humanity will be tested when he realized Konstantin's justification for a massacre. Will he save humanity regardless, or will he stand still and watch Celestial Anvil unleashes its wrath once more?

For most twelve-year-olds, being kidnapped is terrifying. For Althea, it’s only Tuesday.
Her powers of healing make her a precious commodity in the Badlands, a place where the strong write the law in blood. For as long as she can remember, she has lived either as a possession or a goddess. Althea contents herself with captivity as long as she can help others, even those who killed to own her.
After three whole months in the same village, the friendship of a young warrior makes her feel almost like a member of the tribe rather than a prisoner. Alas, raiders seize her yet again. For the first time in six years, being stolen hurts.
Following a reluctant escape, she questions if she should dare risk using her powers to defend herself, and those she has come to love. Her attempt to return to the tribe leaves her lost and alone and, for the first time in her life, trying to stay free.
Alas, two threats far beyond her experience to understand also hunt her. One wishes to use her for his grand scheme—and one wants to destroy her.

"The Murdered World" is the second science fiction novel in the author's Fesarius series. The author has reimagined the Star Trek universe with elements of Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, a hint of The Orville and a boatload of common sense. The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, National Geographic are also included for good measure. Military accuracy is enhanced to create a read that is both comfortably familiar yet completely new.
After their success at the Semnorian Homeworld, starship Fesarius is ordered to investigate a newly discovered solar system. The automated FTL probe reported that it has nine planets that have been heavily mined, and the second planet is emitting an incredibly large radiation signature. In fact, the radiation coming from the second planet is 540% greater than its own star! There are just four lightspeed radio signals coming from that second planet as well; those signals are just blank carrier waves, and it is the task of Fesarius to find out what is going on in there. What horrors will Fesarius discover? This answer and more will be found within the pages of "The Murdered World."

if forgiving her made you immortal?

Suddenly caught in a celestial war, Pallas must do the unthinkable – champion the very goddess she hates. Masquerading as a mythic princess, she convinces everyone she’s a child of Atlantis.
Yet nothing can save her from certain doom, when the Volcano god reaches out to slay her. For how can a mortal fight a god?
D. C. Belton creates an emotional world as elegant as it is deadly: where mortals fall prey to passionate gods and a slave proves stronger than craven nobility.

On the First of March 2047, the world changed. Now, thirty-eight years later, while most of the global community struggle to survive, US dominance is preserved by an agency so aggressively secretive that anyone who looks too hard turns up dead. Or worse.
The ultimate enforcers of this agency are known as Guardians. You don’t get to be a Guardian, you are bred to be a Guardian. In-vitro DNA tweaks make you stronger, faster, and smarter. High-tech implants include a battle computer AI that can control your emotions. And your training covers every act of violence possible, using every weapon imaginable, all so you can deliver overwhelming force on those who threaten the status quo.
But the dark tends to secrets, and secrets corrode. As a young Guardian finds when a seemingly routine assignment in San Francisco unexpectedly pivots. With civilians in the firing line, and the body count growing, it seems his enemies are always a step ahead. Taught to see patterns that others miss, the assignment is a jigsaw of missing pieces.
Then, just when he thinks there is nothing left to reveal, he suddenly finds himself with no option but to confront the ugly truth at the core of his very being.
This is the opening sequence of the ‘The Egan Universe’, a hard science series spanning hundreds of years of a future for mankind that we hope we never see.
| Love is Strange (Timeline 10/27/62 Book 2)|
by James Philip
$0.00, 237 pages, 3.5 out of 5.0 (31 reviews), #32 in Alternative History
The Cuban Missiles Crisis didn’t end peacefully and the 'swinging sixties' didn't happen.
On Saturday 27th October 1962 American and Soviet geopolitical brinkmanship resulted in the most terrible war in human history. The forever changed world that remained when the thermonuclear fires had burned themselves out is the world of ‘Timeline 10/27/62’.
Love is Strange is Book 2 of the alternative history series Timeline 10/27/62.
Love is Strange picks up the story a year and a month after the terrifying events in Operation Anadyr, Book 1 of the Timeline 10/27/62 Series. In a partially devastated world in which people are beginning to discover what actually happened and who their friends really are, chaos and disintegration threaten and old allies drift like sleepwalkers towards new wars.
The USA has assumed a new global hegemony and written off its old European allies. Therein lie the seeds of a generational conflict but nobody in Washington wants to hear that kind of news, or recognise that the laurels of victory might in time come to crush the seemingly invincible American eagle.
In a Britain ravaged by nuclear war in which the survivors are struggling to come to terms with the cataclysm questions are being asked about the reasons why; and how what remains of the nation will survive in the new world. Out of the catastrophe new leaders are beginning to emerge and there is a growing consensus that one day there will be a reckoning.
* * *
Why Timeline 10/27/62? Because that date is a very significant date in my life and in the lives of everybody else in the world alive today because on Saturday 27th October 1962 World War III almost started. World War III probably wouldn’t have lasted very long because one side would have been swiftly obliterated in the first 24 hours of a cataclysm that would have left vast tracts of the Northern Hemisphere uninhabited and uninhabitable for decades to come. Perhaps, a quarter of the world’s population would have died in the firestorm or in the starvation and the plagues that would have ensued in the following weeks and months.
The ‘Cuban Missiles’ War would have been a Man made global catastrophe like no other in human history. In the aftermath, the USA, mourning the dead in half-a-dozen wrecked cities would have been the last major industrial and military power left standing. That world could never, ever be the world we know today.
How close did we actually come to the edge of the abyss? Much closer than most people like to contemplate. On Saturday 27th October 1962, north east of Cuba, the commander of Soviet submarine B-59 had to be talked out of firing a nuclear-tipped torpedo at the American destroyer USS Beale. That’s how close we came to World War III!
In that era Soviet naval doctrine governing the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons onboard a warship at sea required the authorisation of three officers: the captain, the executive officer, and the vessel’s political officer. B-59’s political officer, Ivan Semonovich Maslennikov signed off on starting World War III but fortunately for us all, the submarine’s second-in-command, Captain 2nd Rank Vasili Arkhipov, dissented and Armageddon was narrowly averted.
Love is Strange, set a little over a year after the cataclysm, is the first full chapter of the story of what happened after Vasili Arkhipov failed to prevail upon Valentin Grigorievitch Savitsky to see reason.

Learn or Die . . .
A 10,000 word short featuring Kuba - the AI from The Rogue Hackers Series. As the story begins, we're plunged into the murky Moscow underworld as the Soviet State Collapses, and a brilliant mathematician rewrites the rules of what is possible for artificial intelligence. But as the stunning machine develops ever more incredible capabilities, it reaches the attention of the Russian mob and sparks a gang war between rival factions; even as the KGB hovers in the background ready to seize this synthetic miracle and make it a soldier of the state.
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.
