Fairies and Curries and Sherlock Holmes

Free Today on Amazon

Got myself a Saturday morning grab bag of freebies that I’d love to share with you.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I love fairies and stories set in Ireland. Finding a book with both is one of my sweet spots. The book listed below is actually a novelette, perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon.

If you like curry, you’ll probably want to grab “The Big Book of Curry,” which includes dishes many different regions, including Africa and the Caribbean. Myself, I love Thai and Indian curries, though I haven’t had a Japanese or Vietnamese curry that I’ve liked. Maybe something in this book will tempt my palate in that direction.

Finally, I’ve included two Sherlock Holmes short story compilations. The free, public domain versions of these two books that I previously downloaded had crappy formatting. The two books below ordinarily cost $2.99 and have awesome formatting. The Go To menu includes a handy table of contents. Get them while they’re free!

Have a great Saturday!

  The Sidhe Princess by Loucinda McGary
In the rural Northern Ireland of the 1960s, sixteen-year-old Moira Mullins is newly released from her second stay in a mental institution. Her problem is that she can’t seem to escape the notice of the other-worldly inhabitants of the wild lands bordering her family’s farm. Creatures nobody else can see or hear. When one of these beings, a fairy princess called the Maid of Ulster, offers to foretell the future, Moira jumps at the chance. But the Maid has ulterior motives that could have tragic results for Moira, who learns the future is sometimes better unknown.

  The Big Book of Curry Recipes by Dyfed Lloyd Evans
Curries are one of the world’s culinary success stories. They are now prepared, in various guises throughout the globe. Curries were originally developed in the Indus valley some 4000 or more years ago. Indian traders introduced them to Southeast Asia and East Africa whilst Buddhist monks introduced them to south Asia and East Asia. The British introduced them to the remainder of the world. This book contains over 700 recipes for curries and curry-associated dishes with recipes for starters, main courses, accompaniments, breads, pickles, curry pastes and spice blends, and drinks from the Indian sub-Continent. Also included are curries from the remainder of Asia, from Africa and from the Caribbean.

  The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
After Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes in the novel A Study in Scarlet in 1887, he wrote a series of twenty-four short mysteries featuring the detective and his colleague, Dr. Watson, in the pages of the Strand Magazine from 1891 to 1893. THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES collects the first twelve of these tales—including “A Scandal in Bohemia” (which introduces Irene Adler), “The Red-Headed League,” “The Five Orange Pips,” and “The Speckled Band”—some of the greatest stories in the Sherlock Holmes canon.

  The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Could it be that Sherlock Holmes has finally met his match in the villainous Professor Moriarty? Quite possibly. The only way to know for certain is to read the climactic story “The Final Problem” from this collection of Sherlock Holmes tales. In this second compilation of stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (following The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes), we learn about Holmes’ first-ever investigation in “The Gloria Scott”; meet his older, smarter (and fatter and lazier) brother, Mycroft; and are introduced to the most evil criminal mastermind in English literature, Professor Moriarty.

Disclaimers and Disclosures

I found these books via Amazon’s Kindle eBooks store. Resources for free Kindle and other format eBooks are listed in my sidebar.

These freebies are limited time offers, so there is no guarantee any of these books will still be free when you click on the links. Grab them sooner rather than later.

Books that I have previously listed will occasionally come up free again. I add those to my current posts for people who didn’t see them the first time.
