Kindle Freebies – June 8, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

Too many freebies that were too good to pass up.

Fiction downloads include scifi, dystopia, fantasy and a horror anthology with an irresistible title.

For recipes, an evil wonderful author has released a batch of cookbooks on dangerous delicious topics such as muffins and cupcakes. Drool.

Travel includes the usual city guides, plus a book on traveling alone. I traveled alone through Spain and it was an exhilarating and sometimes frightening experience. Though I had a “Let’s Go” travel guide, it was mostly by the seat of my pants. A guide like this could have been useful.

Finally, a three-in-one puzzle book game.

With all that, I’m bound to have a good weekend. Enjoy your weekend, too!

Fiction

Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon
At the start of this riveting launch of a new far-future SF series from Kenyon (Tropic of Creation), a disastrous mishap during interstellar space travel catapults pilot Titus Quinn with his wife, Johanna Arlis, and nine-year-old daughter, Sydney, into a parallel universe called the Entire. Titus makes it back to this dimension, his hair turned white, his memory gone, his family presumed dead and his reputation ruined with the corporation that employed him. The corporation (in search of radical space travel methods) sends Titus (in search of Johanna and Sydney) back through the space-time warp. There, he gradually, painfully regains knowledge of its rulers, the cruel, alien Tarig; its subordinate, Chinese-inspired humanoid population, the Chalin; and his daughter’s enslavement. Titus’s transformative odyssey to reclaim Sydney reveals a Tarig plan whose ramifications will be felt far beyond his immediate family. Kenyon’s deft prose, high-stakes suspense and skilled, thorough world building will have readers anxious for the next installment. (From Publisher’s Weekly)

Extinction Point by Paul Jones
Reporter Emily Baxter has a great job, an apartment in Manhattan, and a boyfriend she loves. All that changes the day the red rain falls from a cloudless sky. Just hours after the first reports from Europe, humanity is on the brink of extinction, wiped from the face of the earth in a few bloody moments, leaving Emily alone in an empty city. As she struggles to grasp the reality of her situation, Emily becomes the final witness to the end of our world… and the birth of a terrifying new one.

The Dragon Diary by M. Margaret Neil
When Emma Taylor translates an ancient Latin diary describing a dragon-slaying, her curiosity about the local legend is piqued. Looking for answers in the wild moors of Cornwall, she encounters her handsome cousin Jarod McNeill. Jarod has evidence that the diary is authentic – he holds the dragon’s claw. But an avalanche of unexpected pitfalls complicate Emma’s life, as she fights a forbidden attraction to her cousin. And despite sabotage, arson and even murder, she’s determined to prove the existence of dragons. Emma thinks she knows what secrets lie in the depths of the bog, but she’s dead wrong.

Teddy Bear Cannibal Massacre
Tim Lieder’s anthology is an entertaining trip into the Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone. It is a place where a War Against Clowns is violently waged, a magician is taught magic by a Scottish crab, a pretty lycanthrope unleashes her wild side in a London club, and a not so imaginary friend helps a shy young man get the girl.

Seven Reasons To Go Travelling Solo by Chris Mitchell
Seven Reasons author Chris Mitchell writes: Solo travelling changed my life. I left England in December 2002 to backpack in Australia, thinking I would travel for six months, a year at most. That was 10 years ago. I never went home. I ended up living in Thailand by accident and continuing to travel extensively across South East Asia, driven by a passion for scuba diving that I only discovered because of travelling. Quite early on I posted an article on TravelHappy called Seven Reasons To Go Travelling Solo. The ongoing response to that article has been huge, sparking hundreds of comments and emails from people wanting to travel alone. This ebook collects and updates the original Seven Reasons essay along with other useful and inspirational articles from TravelHappy to help and reassure those of you who want to travel solo. I’ve also included a previously Solo Travelling FAQ answering the most common solo travel questions posed by readers.
