I was going to live another day. That was my thought, till I walked into a tree branch. I hit the branch hard. Pain swepted through my body. My world went black. I wasn't sure if I went to Heaven or Hell. All I know is that I was not in pain. I didn't want to go back. I woke up and pain was worse than ever. Not only was I in pain, Humans invaded my world. Johnny was trusting Humans. Johnny had included Humans into our family. Humans that will only take from us in this new world. I had to get stronger to get Sunshine and myself away from these Humans. Every time I move or tried to stand up, the pain knocked me down and my world turned back into darkness. This time I knew that I was not in Heaven. I was in Hell. I had to get back to reality. I couldn't die, knowing that Sunshine was not safe. I fought the darkness. I fought throught the pain. I was awake. My battle had just begun. I knew that I could not trust Humans.

The virtual world of Sol has an end date. If the Corporations discover Ana’s secret, she will have one too.
Ana, like everyone else, escapes the horrors of realworld by hooking into Sol - a perfect cyber reproduction of our solar system. Inside the simulation, Ana explores the Earth as it was before the Devastation, and uses her e-games prize money from combat Arenas to fund her meagre existence and maintain her anonymity.
Unlike everyone else, Ana is hiding a fatal secret; she is blind, and the all-powerful Corporations hunt the visually impaired.
When the world discovers that Sol has an imminent end date, the news is calamitous for Ana because, without Sol, she will lose everything. Forced from the virtual sanctity of her realworld container, Ana seeks a legendary engineer to upgrade her cybernetic implant.
But leaving home puts Ana in the crosshairs of the same Corporations she has fought all her life to remain hidden from.

| A Printer’s Choice: A science-fiction murder-mystery about crime, faith, and the power of free will|
by W. L. Patenaude
$0.00, 333 pages, 4.4 out of 5.0 (87 reviews), #3 in International Mystery & Crime
In January 2088, life in outer space is rocked with news of its first homicide. The dead man—a young Dominican Priest—had secretly made his way “upside” and lived as a common laborer. His intentions are a mystery and the killer’s identity and motive are questions that the best investigators of the new world cannot answer.
With public order threatened, the reputation of the ruling engineers at stake, and criminal elements seizing the opportunity to gain control, authorities seek help from Earth—itself recovering from decades of war and environmental crises. With assistance from the Vatican, they recruit Father John Francis McClellan, a parish priest from Boston and a retired US Marine Corps expert in “high-defs”—the artificially intelligent three-dimensional printers that built the new world.
A Printer’s Choice tells a story of faith, the future, and the power of free will. It explores questions about sentience, choice, and the necessity of choosing well. Set in locations on Earth and in the orbits, the story takes place in a future extrapolated from today’s geopolitical and ecological turmoil. In this epic debut novel, author W. L. Patenaude illuminates not just the struggles of our world, but also the promises and implications of building a better one, one choice at a time.

When the 1% flees a climate-ravaged Earth for a luxury Martian colony, will the survivors left behind build a new utopia or collapse into post-apocalyptic chaos?
Earth has devolved into corporate feudalism. The mega corporation NewOrigin promises a quick escape from an Earth made uninhabitable by global warming, and a fresh start on their new Martian colony.
But when a whistleblower reveals that the colony has the capacity to hold only a tiny fraction of the Earth’s population, the ultra elite stampede for a standing spot near the bathroom on the last shuttle to Mars.
There is Liam and his daughter Jemima, distant relatives of the CEO of NewOrigin, who battle against Earth’s remaining billionaires in a race to the Skylift shuttle minutes before its last launch.
Then there is Finbar, an establishment loyalist working at one of the largest social media networks on Earth. If she just keeps her head down and ignores the rioters outside, her contract promises her a golden ticket to Mars.
But does the new colony really offer salvation? NewOrigin’s rule becomes increasingly authoritarian in the struggle to control an overflowing population. Florentine, the once tech-billionaire, finds himself a member of the overstuffed colony’s burgeoning underclass.
In a world of only the powerful, who will dominate, who will revolt, and who will be left when the dust clears?
Earth and Mars evolve in parallel over the next one hundred years. One society runs from its mistakes, while the other must meet them head on.
When Tsunami, the great granddaughter of the once mighty NewOrigin CEO, flees Mars to beg political asylum on Earth, old resentments must be confronted in a planetary-wide, precedent-setting immigration hearing.
Descendants of Power is darkly comedic science fiction at its best, merging rising fears of climate apocalypse with dreams of Martian colonization as it strives to answer the question: can we outrun our own human nature?

The order is continued to protect and preserve the second prophecy.
To the present day ... Rachael Balsano owns a bookstore in the Austrian Alps, blissfully happy in her vocation ... until a strange book is returned.
Ralph Balsano is a leading scientist at The European Environment Agency ... coincidence?
A foreign stranger, David, must convince the modern world- science itself - not only to listen to his story, but to act upon it.
Flame Tide ... Cure? ... or Curse?

My name is Emmi Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio city. Every slumdog I know underestimates me. They think I am a dumb kid who could not survive alone, not without my brother, but I have been through so much, and I have never asked anyone to fight my battles. My mother abandoned me when I was five years old and here I am – about to reach the grand old age of sixteen. Believe me, anyone who can survive ten years in this place deserves respect.
Ever since my brother Arturo started working for a mysterious man, our lives changed dramatically. At first, Arturo had money and it went to his head, but then he disappeared, and I thought I was never going to see him again, until he escaped... from prison.
That is when things really got crazy. Our friend Killow was infected by nanites which gave him superpowers, but also turned him evil. And now we have no idea where he is. Oh, and I forgot to mention our friend Dynah who also has superpowers and is non-evil.
The plague came and my best friend Lel died. It broke my heart, but I will not be beaten by this world. 'Live for the moment' is what Lel used to say, and I will move forward in her honour. I will prove to my brother I am not a kid any more, and I will show our rotten country that this dumb, blonde, 'bottom-leveller' is a force to be reckoned with.

The world before the Great Flood, a time of great civilisations that are now vanished.
Who did build the pyramids of ancient Egypt?
Who were the ancient gods?
Did the Annunaki really live among us?
What really happened to Atlantis?
Who was the fair-skinned, red-headed god of Aztec lore?
There was a time at the end of the last great ice age when the gods roamed the earth and soared through the sky. A time when Atlantis thrived as one of the pre-eminent civilisations of the antediluvian world and boats travelled regularly from Europe to the far continent, now called America.
Then came the end of the world as all knew it, wiping out all of those advanced civilisations, leaving just handfuls of people to start again and build their societies anew.
Trevor Daffyd explores , through a handful of extraordinary men and women, how the ancients came to grips with their own catastrophe and asks the question, could it all happen again?

**Winner of Wattpad's: Watty 2014: People's Choice Award for Science-Fiction**
'My name is Arturo Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio City – the capital of a nation ravaged by a war which was won by extremists. Offered a choice between slavery and disenfranchisement, we exist in an underclass so disconnected we effectively inhabit a different era. Daily life involves scavenging, theft and substance abuse with a bunch of misfits who are somehow still in one piece after years of abandonment. I am a natural born fighter and although I despise warfare, I must witness the downfall of those bastard elites while fulfilling my romantic intentions with the forever unattainable girl of my dreams.'
Skye City is a biopunk adventure set in a world where science is indistinguishable from magic and oppression is near-inescapable. Technology has created a newer, 'superior' form of human and genetically engineered monstrosities are as terrifying as anything encountered in your nightmares. The underclass have been underestimated and as they fight back the boundary between freedom fighter and terrorist becomes increasingly blurred. Meanwhile, the drug-induced haze of a traumatised mind places a question mark over the meaning of reality.
'Skye City: The Rise of an Orphan interweaves heavy social issues and philosophy, milking the sci-fi genre for all its worth. The slum dog's efforts to maintain their humanity in such a heartless age, when everything is going against them is palpable. The 99% versus 1% theme focuses our minds on where society might be heading and forces us to look at things how they are, if we wish them to be truly different.' Dean C. Moore - Author of Renaissance 2.0

Hamster in a Microwave: It should have been a straightforward investigation of an Arthur Steel Foundation employee who had been murdered in San Diego. Never in Nina Steel's wildest dreams did she think it would lead her to a head to head confrontation with terrorists so incredibly vindictive that nothing would stop them from achieving their goal, even if it means annihilating each other.Once the terrorists realize Nina Steel is hunting them down, they attack her and her team with the ferocity of red fire ants. Except these ants have nuclear weapons. In the wild melee that follows Nina Steel makes a critical oversight and one of her genetically engineered counterparts is dealt a mortal blow. With all of this, it does not seem possible Nina Steel will prevail. In classic Mr. Hansen politically incorrect style, Hamster in a Microwave takes you on a rocket sled ride that leaves not only you, but the characters winded by the end. Every page builds the excitement at an unrelenting pace. Nina faces one deadly crisis after another and finds herself unable to save the life of a new friend. Never has Nina Steel been up against such violently cruel terrorists, terrorists that think nothing of using a nuclear weapon to kill just one person. Furthermore, unknown to Nina Steel, Dr. Betty Marsh, the genetic engineer who designed Nina has broken all the rules and is working on super human technology again by planning to redesign humanity to create a totally new species. Can Nina Steel deal with these terrorists in time to stop Dr. Marsh? Or does Dr. Marsh already have the upper hand and will force Nina Steel to destroy humanity herself if she attempts to stop the human redesign plan.

The days we spent together felt like weeks. A bond was clearly forming. He helped me through my toughest time, the death and rebirth of my brother. And yet his own journey was so short, the deal he was offered so unfair, even by the standards of Eryx. He never got to discover himself, but I am glad he got to experience freedom, friendship, family, however briefly.
Born in a laboratory, created presumably to kill, he was so far from his apparent design. He deserved to glimpse the beauty our world reveals on those rare occasions when it suspends our drive towards extinction. And he deserved to see the Enclave flourish into something which can prevent our self-destruction, which can reshape humanity.
San Teria wanted an army of puppets but created beings superior to themselves, not just physically but in every way. These children, the telepaths, who were bred for obedience, were actually bred with compassion and reason which I suppose could be mistaken for obedience in the correct circumstances and this misunderstanding backfired in the best possible way. They created not puppets but opponents who will fight for justice, reluctant heroes who can lead our wretched species from the dark ages. We have so much to learn from the telepaths and I am honoured to know them. I just pray the rest of the Enclave are okay.

My name is Emmi Basilides. I am the sister of a rebel soldier who is missing in action. The world of Eryx is falling apart. People are vanishing all around me. Many are dying. Some are simply leaving no trace and I do not have answers. The lack of closure is a real killer. I just want to flee this warzone, but you cannot run from a world war.
Everywhere I go, the violence follows me, and the scariest thing is how well I am adapting. I am supposed to be the care-free airhead, the one who depends on everyone else. Well, that is what the gang have always thought. The ironic thing is, when it comes down to it, time and again, they look to me. And I never wanted leadership, I never wanted conflict, but I am not given a choice. Right now, life is about two things: running and waiting.
We keep running from battles, but in the process, we run into fresh battles. And all the while, we are waiting for my brother, my friends, and my boyfriend to safely return. I do not know if they ever will. I do not even know if hope is helpful any more. I am just trying to keep my sanity intact, but as the madness spreads around me, this damn plague, this bio-weapon is making things a million times worse.

"A Spirit's Dreams Never Die."
This is the touching and sometimes humorous story of the pursuit of "unfinished dreams" that spans eight-hundred years... a story about music and love that transcends time.
Derrick Mattingly is a young man in 2071 with dreams of becoming a progressive music artist, and finding eternal love in a world where culture has been turned upside-down... a world where humankind is aided by androids, virtual reality, and surreal technology... a world where new challenges and adventures confront him every step of the way.
But his time-travel journey actually began way earlier than 2071, beginning in Medieval Wales in the thirteenth century. There, in a simple life in the countryside, his life essence DID find eternal love with his beloved Katherine.
Derrick's journey and struggles then continued into the seventeenth century in Vienna, Austria, future home of great composers like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven. The royal palace staunchly supported "the best" musicians and composers in the world, sponsoring lavish musical productions that touched the souls of even the most jaded amongst the nobility. But how can Derrick's musical talents as a classical composer be discovered? He is but a common worker who repairs shoes, a far cry from the elitist world of high-society!
These past experiences helped shape the being of Derrick Mattingly... his current "essence", and in 2071, his pursuit of dreams of eternal love and artistic excellence continue along with his sexual awakening, despite all the daunting obstacles the world can throw at him. This is the story of "unfinished dreams".

| Travels in Time & Dimensions|

Travels in Time & Dimensions is an anthology of short stories and novel excerpts, set in Christopher Jackson-Ash’s FirstWorld Multiverse. CJA’s writing explores the complex paradoxes that time travel inevitably throws up and the eternal debate over whether our lives are controlled by fate or chance. He is fascinated by the never-ending battle for domination between Law and Chaos and the role that the Balance plays in finding an appropriate middle way that we should strive to follow. And how does good and evil fit in? Perhaps, rather than fate or chance, we are ruled by our genes. Does the battle that Heroes undertake to come to terms with their special genes mirror the author’s own struggle to come to terms with his sexuality? And where does the companion to the Hero fit into the narrative? The Immortal Prophet, Nostradamus, wrote that sometimes the Companion is more important than the Hero. This anthology demonstrates the veracity of that quotation as the Heroes are supporting characters to the Companion. This anthology can be read as a stand-alone work or be used as an introduction to CJA’s FirstWorld novels.

One Faith. One Galactic Empire. And A Thousand Worlds Yet To Convert!
In the 51st century, man has spread throughout a great swath of the galaxy without having found any sign of alien life or another habitable world. Instead, mankind has splintered into a score of bio-engineered sub-species spread out across more than a thousand terraformed worlds. The Holy Terran Empire rules over three hundred of these man-made planets. Earth, the One, True World is the Empire’s Capital. The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Rome governs the Empire, hand-in-hand, with the Imperial Family.
Not everyone is pleased with this arrangement.
Zephyrinus Zapatas, a dutiful citizen of the Empire and loyal son of the Church is more than happy with the Co-Dominion of Emperor and Pope. At sixteen, Zeph leaves home, seeking a life of service to the two crowns. He finds his opportunity in an invitation to join the Emperor’s Own, the elite Corps of Imperial Marines.
The Corps’ training is arduous; its moral code, exacting, but; Zeph welcomes the trials and the strictures. The Corps will demand sacrifices. In return, the Imperial Marines offer its recruits little more than a career fraught with peril to life and limb. Zeph accepts the life, however short it might be, because it comes with the chance of achieving his greatest ambition: reaching the rank of Knight Defender of the Faith and Empire.
His training, ambition and his faith will all be tested in the fires of battle against a cruel alliance of space pirates terrorizing scores of worlds.
The Holy Terran Empire is a new space opera series for anyone who can't get enough sword & blaster action.

The lanes of travel for spaceships were so wide, even between the same solar systems, that it was infinitely unlikely for two passing vessels to come close enough to share communications.
Then, in the hangar, a presence arrived like an eruption. Etta detected it immediately. It numbered in the dozens. Living things, aliens, were warping in one by one until they filled the hangar like an army, complete with a nefarious leader who courageously commanded them all with a sinister laugh.

At the dawn of a new Dark Age, the world of Edomia reels amid the clash of warring species, and the rise of a militant new religion from beyond the stars. Heir to the ancient Goddess-worshiping matriarchy of Taugwadeth, Princess Ashna N’rene is sent on a dangerous journey to form an alliance with her people’s most obstinate foe, the fanatical, misogynist Curions, adherents of an alien faith only recently carried to Edomia from medieval Earth. But success in this endeavor may be no more desirable than all-out war with the ravenous race of arachno-sapiens known as the Sc’dorim. Faced with two equally dire prospects—to become concubines for the Curions or livestock for the Sc’dorim— Ashna and her companions must fight for their own enlightened way of life, their faith, their freedom, and all they have ever loved, before their once-proud world of women passes forever into the hands of men. Paralleling the story of Ashna’s adventures, a modern-day Marco Polo recounts his travels through the quantum portal that connects Earth to Edomia. A small boy when he arrives from Earth in the year 1965, Brother Morek looks back over many decades to recount his enslavement by the Sc’dorim, his friendship with a fellow prisoner, his escape and rescue in the midst of battle, and his struggles to adapt to life on a world at once familiar and nightmarishly strange. Along the way, Morek offers rich insight into the culture, and science, art, language, and mythology of his adopted world.

Set in a magical fantasy version of the Victorian era, the Clockwork Twist series follows an unassuming and introverted clockmaker from London, named Twist. When a clockwork princess needs his help, Twist finds himself on an adventure around the world surrounded by airship pirates, secret societies, treasure hunters, vampires, magical kitsune, a genie or two, and occupationally dragons. Are you all caught up on the series?
Continue the journey in Book Seven: Family!
After a lifetime alone, Twist finally finds himself as a part of a family, among his close friends and his new bride. But will their support be enough to save him from an angry dragon that wants to drive him mad?
His friends now safe from vampires, and his bride at his side, Twist thought he might have some time to rest after his most recent adventure. But what was once only a mild annoyance has now grown into a true threat.
Twist never meant to kill the dragon. He had only tried to defend himself, but the dragon had been slain all the same. Now, the dragon's ghost still clings to Twist's skin, giving him uncomfortable sensations, hallucinations, and nightmares. Some warn that the dragon's ghost will plague him until it drives him mad and eventually takes possession of Twist completely. Although they say that this should take years to happen, thanks to Twist's powerful sight, the dragon's ghost is getting stronger much faster than that.
The best hope that Twist has to free him from the ghost is gypsy magic. Jonas spent his childhood among a troupe of gypsies, and says that the woman who took him in as her own grandson was a powerful witch who might be able to help Twist. Without anywhere else to turn, Twist and his friends now have to set off across the world, once again, this time to meet a witch.

Harper feeds information sparingly, but gives just enough so as to keep you hooked, and make you want more."

Reality is a coin, and you've only seen one side.
Trapped by an act of betrayal and sabotage, the mind of neuroscientist Aida Doxiphus is locked in an alternate view of reality where the future can be easily predicted—a view that the profiteering saboteurs believe that they have to themselves. And they’ll do anything to keep it that way.
Though she appears unconscious in this world, Aida is more than active in the other. She uses her extraordinary view to save the lives of people around the globe. Her actions, however, come at a steep price: every moment she inhabits the alternate world accelerates her toward death—that is, if the saboteurs don’t kill her and her family first.
After an attempt on Aida’s life in the hospital and the murder of her lab technician that night, her husband, and daughter, along with the medic who brought her in are pulled into a race for their lives. With nothing but their brains and fortitude—and aided by a group of Buddhist monks in New Mexico—the Doxiphus family must elude their hunters in both worlds and expose the saboteurs and their reality bending plans before time runs out.

Viking Norway meets Victorian London in this gripping dystopian debut.
It has been 183 years since Mason destroyed the Old World, terraforming it into a beautiful, frozen tundra which he claims with tyrannical sovereignty. In the midst of this New World, Alira is a wanted woman, running from Mason and his sadistic minions. Forced to hide her true identity, Alira must survive the darkest, cruellest forms of humanity as she searches for the truth of who, and what she is. Why is she prophesied to destroy the world, why is she known as The End of Everything? And why, when Mason can kill with a single stare, does she want to look into his eyes?
Mixing the allure of fantasy with the gut-wrenching tensity of a thriller, The End of Everything is the first in a brutal tetralogy of emotion and survival. Each part twists Alira’s personality, turning her from a naïve, immature girl into a relentless survivor who straddles the boundary between heroine and villain.

| The Making of an Angel: Book 4: Light in the Darkness|
by Anthony Harrington
$0.00, 302 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (2 reviews), #16 in LGBT Action & Adventure
Book 4 begins with Angel being presented in court to King Edward. During a visit back to her time, she is involved in stopping a dirty bomb plot in London. Use of the Time Door creates an energy surge that has NASA puzzled. Events lead to Angel revealing the existence of the alien she and the Clan are hosting, to the President of America. This part of her adventure ends with her and Duke Pendle setting off to journey down to London from York, and having to deal with an army blocking their way.
...The Duke gave instructions to his men to hold fast where they were. He and Angel walked their horses forward. When they were about four hundred yards from the opposing army, they stopped. A group of three armoured knights trotted forward to meet them. Watching the advancing knights, she drew the Glock, cocked it and let her arm dangle down. The mounted knights advanced until the gap between them was no more than ten feet. The knights’ shields, which each had slung to the left of their saddles, bore their colours.
“Earl Coullson, and Sir Hingston, and that third with you I would guess to be Sir Henry de Beauchamp. What makes this army in my path?” the Duke asked, in a stern voice. All three knights looked askance at the long shape of the machine gun resting in the Duke’s lap.
“Good morrow to you, Duke Pendle. We have no quarrel with you, my Lord, unless you seek to push past us. However, this woman here must come with us for trial. I have received word that she assaulted and falsely imprisoned three knights, using black arts which showed her to be a witch.” Earl Coullson said.
Bryan smiled broadly.
“Aye, she kicked their arses for them, no question, but it was soldierly skills, not magic, that felled them. This is the Lady Angel. One of the three fellows, I take him for the spokesman, though he did not identify himself, called her a whore. When she knocked him down, the other two sought to draw their swords and were similarly knocked to the ground. Now, leaving that matter aside, I am summoned by the King and must go to London. Give me leave to pass with the Lady here, and my men, and we have no quarrel.”
“That, I regret, I cannot permit. If you wish to stay and speak on her behalf at the Lady’s trial, I will provide you and your men with all proper accommodation. I will require you to lay down your arms, however.”
“Give up my sword? To you, whom I laid low at the Oxford tourney two years back? I don’t think so,” the Duke said.
“For the last time, hand over the Lady and turn back,” the Earl said, his impatience clear in his voice.
Angel brought her gun hand up, showing the Glock.
“Bryan, you’ll want to steady Thunder, this is going to be loud.”
“So, she calls you by your given name, Duke Pendle? Have you no shame, to take your whore to see the King?”
The speaker was the third knight, whom the Duke had named as de Beauchamp. Angel shot him through the left elbow.
The report echoed across the plain like a thunderclap. Bits of chain mail and flesh went flying in a spray of blood. All three of the knights’ horses reared and pranced. While the horses were still bucking wildly, Angel put three shots through de Beauchamp’s helmet, blowing it and much of his head off his shoulders. His body fell sideways off his horse. Regaining some control of their mounts, Earl Coullson, and Sir Hingston turned their horses and made to gallop back to their army. Angel shot both men in the back, knocking them off their horses.
Bryan stared at her in shock.
“I’m getting a little annoyed at being called a whore, Bryan. Give me that bloody machine gun,” she said, holstering the Glock...

| Tarot Magic: Event Programming|
by Krylov Petr
$0.00, 96 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #48 in Alternative History
This book discusses the branch of esotericism that deals with event programming by Tarot cards.
The book draws on the author’s many years’ experience reconstructing its theory and verifying it in practice.
In Russia, the book finds its online niche within the context of the Patience of Medici. Legend has it that the Patience of Medici is a magical practice that makes it possible to control the future.
Historical and literature sources have mentioned it under various names for hundreds of years.
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.
