Here are some (mostly) free things we’ve enjoyed reading on the kindle.
Tyger Tyger: A Goblin Wars Book book by Kersten Hamilton (interesting; Celtic mythology)
Cobweb Bride by Vera Nazarian (fairy tale)
BECOME (Desolation #1) by Ali Cross (fantasy YA)
(In none of the above 3 cases was I inspired to pick up the sequel, however.)
I enjoyed The Corpse Reader by Antonio Garrido (which wasn’t free).
I really enjoyed Fledgling (Liaden Universe) by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Thanks, Baen Free Library! This one “worked” for them in that it got me really interested in the universe and now I will buy more books in the series.
Another fun (free!) find was Anna Katherine Green. Her work is strongly reminiscent of Poe and Doyle. I was entranced with the first paragraph of The Mayor’s Wife which is well worth the read. Subsequent novels of hers haven’t really been keepers (and there’s been some antisemitism and other assorted racism that make for immediate deletion). Still, I haven’t tried everything I’ve downloaded yet. Amazon thinks we should read her Amelia Butterworth mysteries. [Update, the first is a good mystery so far, but man, had to take a break when I hit racism… this time anti-Chinese-American.]
Ooh, the 2014 Campbellian Anthology of Campbell Award nominees.
I also have some other free stuff (incl. Cory Doctorow) that I haven’t read yet.
Have you found any good free Kindle gems since our last post on the topic?
