In the year 2030, a dying scientist released a volatile pathogen into the atmosphere.

Raised in solitary confinement on a strict diet of cigars and alcohol, Wilhelm Baggotry has successfully prematurely aged his body to that of a ninety-year-old. But will it be enough to fool the Greys and gain their trust? Or will the Resistance be destroyed, and youth become a thing of the past?

The Girl in the Golden Atom (Ray Cummings' Matter, Space and Time series Book 1)
by Ray Cummings
$0.00, 359 pages, 3.7 out of 5.0 (23 reviews), #234 in Molecular Physics
First published in 1922, "The Girl in the Golden Atom" by Ray Cummings is a classic work of science fiction and one of the first to explore the world of the atom.
"The Girl in the Golden Atom" is the first and most famous work in Cummings’ Matter, Space and Time series ("The Fire People" and "The Man Who Mastered Time" dealing with the other two matters, respectively), which postulates that matter, space and time are interlinked and that one cannot exist without the others. 

"The Girl in the Golden Atom" was enormously successful at its publication, and Cummings went on to write an equally successful sequel, "The People of the Golden Atom". This novel stays as Cummings’ most highly regarded fictional work.

"The Girl in the Golden Atom" is the story of a young chemist who finds a hidden atomic world within his mother’s wedding ring. Under a microscope, he sees within the ring a beautiful young woman sitting before a cave. Enchanted by her, he shrinks himself so that he can join her world.

Ray Cummings  is viewed as one of the founding fathers of the pulp science fiction genre.

One of the aliens thinks David is the right man for the job, the other one thinks he’s an idiot…



A Voyage to Arcturus: A Sci-Fi Classic
by David Lindsay
$0.00, 265 pages, 3.4 out of 5.0 (22 reviews), #31 in Time Travel Science Fiction
This carefully crafted ebook: "A Voyage to Arcturus" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
A Voyage to Arcturus combines fantasy, philosophy, and science fiction in an exploration of the nature of good and evil and their relationship with existence. Described by critic and philosopher Colin Wilson as the "greatest novel of the twentieth century", it was a central influence on C. S. Lewis' Space Trilogy, and through him on J. R. R. Tolkien, who said he read the book "with avidity". An interstellar voyage is the framework for a narrative of a journey through fantastic landscapes. The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, which, in the novel (but not in reality) is a double star system, consisting of stars Branchspell and Alppain. The lands through which the characters travel represent philosophical systems or states of mind, through which the main character, Maskull, passes on his search for the meaning of life.
David Lindsay was an author now best remembered for the philosophical science fiction novel A Voyage to Arcturus. The secret of Lindsay's originality as a novelist lies in his metaphysical assumptions.

With few options left but to contact someone offline for help, Cassidy runs a game scenario where she controls a starship, activates some artificial intelligence programs, and plots a course to the nearest connection to the outside world. Unfortunately, an alpha tester going by the username of Zart Tender has plans for her ship and the AIs, and they don’t include her.


Cassidy will have to take her skills to the next level to defeat Zart and call for help before the hacker can wield the game as a weapon against its users—and the rest of the world.

“Their gods have failed them,” said Isabel, “These poor natives look to the sky for someone to save them from the arbitrary horrors of this world.” Isabel took the beef jerky from Max. She tore it open and stuffed a piece in her mouth. She made devil eyes over a wicked smile. “They got us instead.”

The Extraterrestrial Highway is officially known on maps as Nevada State Route 375. 375 is the back door to Area 51. And on that highway is the town of Rachel, population 54. A mile or two past Rachel is an abandoned gas station. One mile beyond that gas station is the Black Mailbox. Nobody knows who put it there. Some say it first appeared around 1949 some time after the Roswell incident. Legend has it that at time it bore the name of a Steve Medlin. Who was he? No one knows.

The Black Mailbox an artifact of sorts, it's been hijacked by vandals, painted white then black again, blown to pieces with shotguns. But it always reappears. And when it is there it's the destination of offerings from those who make the pilgrimage to touch the Black Box in the desert.

UFO hunters have reported a Black GMC Denali that appears on moonless nights. A lone driver gets out and collects the contents. Those who attempt to intervene find themselves waking in their cars with no memory of that night. No cell phone videos, no photos, no text messages. The only evidence of being there, a red pin dropped on a Google map that lead them to this place.

This is the story of the people who drive the Black Denali.

The Fire People (Ray Cummings' Matter, Space and Time series Book 2)
by Ray Cummings
$0.00, 254 pages, 3.6 out of 5.0 (14 reviews), #xx in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Alien Invasion
First published in 1922, "The Fire People" by one of the masters of early science fiction, Ray Cummings, is the second novel of trilogy of tales of Matter, Space, and Time ("The Girl in the Golden Atom" and "The Man Who Mastered Time" dealing with the other two elements, respectively). The Matter, Space and Time series postulates that matter, space and time are interlinked and that one cannot exist without the others.

"The Fire People" is the story of a fiery invasion from another planet. No one could have suspected that the Earth was in mortal danger. It started with a small meteor streaking across the sky and smashing into the Earth's surface, but the event was so much more than a simple collision between the Earth and a wandering piece of space rubble. A strange glow began to radiate from the meteor, a glow unlike anything known to Earthly science; and with these emanations came death, anything coming into contact with that light was immediately destroyed. The fate of the Earth fell into the hands of an inquisitive newspaper reporter and a brilliant professor of science as they strived to save mankind from its first interplanetary threat, an attack from a distant neighbour...

Ray Cummings was an American author of science fiction, rated one of the "founding fathers of the science fiction pulp genre".

Suffering: What is It Like to Be Euthanized?
by Brandon Long
$0.00, 258 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #xx in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Military
Looking into the eyes of someone who is in abject suffering is difficult. Most mammals work to end the suffering of their fellows, and even strangers. However, when there is only one option left to help someone, to end their suffering, we must face a philosophical question: is it worse to end suffering by euthanasia, or to allow the continuation of suffering?

In America, factions have formed in the medical community and society abroad pushing back against what they see as "murder". Others see it as a kindness, a reduction of overall harm caused.

This is the question Chris, an Army Medic in a quarantine camp, must face in Suffering while caring for victims of a prion disease outbreak. Prions are real disease-causing agents, and can persist in the environment for decades, and can't be degraded with heat, acid, or disinfectants. Once infected, it is a death sentence, but a slowly unmerciful one that presents like dementia.

Factions form in the quarantine camp when soldiers begin to euthanize patients. Some characters take drastic steps to prevent what they perceive as murder. The morality of these topics must be explored with the public and medical community alike before sensible policy can be applied.

Suffering is science fiction, with blended elements of thriller. The idea for the book came about when I heard a single sentence that irrevocably opened my eyes to the depths of suffering that exists in the world while working in emergency medical services as an EMT.

In a doctor's office my patient looked at his wife and said, “I can’t do this anymore.” The room lost its air, but she ignored him by making small talk with me. She had heard this before. How we treat the dying reflects what we think about death. Is it moral? Is failing to end someone’s suffering as bad as causing it? What does knowing that the best-case scenario for some people alive right now is an end of all experience do to you?

Suffering is a fictitious phenomenological exploration of euthanasia, in the eyes of the patients, and clinicians. What would it be like to be consensually killed for your own good, or what would it be like to kill consensually for a patient's good?

It's Not the End of the World
by Clint Gage
$0.00, 284 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (22 reviews), #38 in Dystopian Science Fiction
From two guys who’ve never written a book comes the definitive post-not-apocalypse comedy about survival and relationships in a time when the world didn’t end.

Dave and Melanie thought an asteroid was going to destroy the planet. For a full seven weeks, so did everyone else on Earth. But then… it missed. Now, along with the rest of humanity, Dave and Melanie have to deal with the choices they made during “The Countdown” and figure out if there are any parts of their old life worth hanging on to after “The Miss.” The passing asteroid left society in shambles with gas as the only reliable currency, NASA without a single employee, and local bars stocked with deadly homemade hooch, but at least it’s not the end of the world.

Like any good false apocalypse comedy, It’s Not the End of the World contains mature themes and language that may be most appropriate for readers 17 and older.


Scarcity
by Robert Calbeck
$0.00, 523 pages, 4.9 out of 5.0 (19 reviews), #2 in Hard Science Fiction
Thirty years into the future, the world is still reeling from the effects of another world war. World leaders have banned all fossil fuels other than oil, leaving the major powers to fight over what’s left. The results are chilling: starvation, war, rationing. Billions were left dead in their wake. The survivors have limped into a new equilibrium subsisting entirely on green energy, but there is not nearly enough of it to grow and transport sufficient food or keep everyone warm in the winter. Everyone has an identification chip implanted to monitor their Carbon output, ensuring compliance with the green new world.

In this world where the most precious commodity is electricity, a former paratrooper named Luthor Tenrel stumbles upon a new stable element capable of creating endless, self-renewing, clean energy through its ability to manipulate gravity. On the eve of his reveal at the International Energy Convention, ruthless men attempt to take Luthor's discovery—and his life. Framed for crimes they didn’t commit, Luthor and his team struggle to escape the seemingly omnipotent conspiracy that will stop at nothing to possess Luthor’s technology. With the help of the mysterious Vika and the strange gravitational powers of Luthor's new element, their small band must evade governments, criminals, and Luthor’s own demons to have a chance to end scarcity once and for all.

Robert Calbeck's debut novel throws readers into a complex and detailed world that explores the consequences of Climate Change and the policies designed to fight it. Hard-fi fans will appreciate the meticulous research to make Scarcity believable, but fantasy lovers will be drawn to the gravity-manipulating antics that read more like something from Brandon Sanderson.

Craig Edmonds and his young family are awoken at 2 AM by someone banging at their front door. On their doorstep they find an unexpected delivery… a large crate with a generic label addressed to his family.

It has taken him years to recover from the psychological trauma he’d undergone as an elite Marine sniper, but his life was now simple and complete.

But then he opens the crate to discover an intricately carved wooden mirror. Now Craig must fight an enemy far worse than any he’d encountered in the Middle East. Only this time he is battling against time and the embodiment of evil in a desperate attempt to save his family.

Ellen was born to suffer and watch those around her succumb to their misfortune. With the deaths of both of her natural parents, Ellen experiences more sadness, loss and tragedy than most people would endure during several lifetimes.

Azra’s mysterious origins are revealed to show her complicated place in the Universe and how she, and only she, has the ultimate power to change everything.

Robin Wray never looks back.

When she was six her parents signed her over to the NIF, a government institution that turns gifted children into deadly soldiers.

As the geopolitical climate hits a boiling point, the investigation leads Robin through a labyrinth of twists and turns that make it impossible for her to know friend from foe.

Notes and Tips


I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.

I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.

The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.

If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.

If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.

The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.

Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.


Free book searches on Amazon

Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:

Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.

From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.

Those same searches with a keyword:

Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.


Reddit Groups

There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


eReaderIQ

The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.


BookBub

The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.


Galaxy Magazine

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date

​They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online.​ Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.


Overdrive

If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.


Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.


Notifications

Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
