Godiva:) Glad you found us too! Spread the word. Who said there was no free lunch? Ha! I'm like a kid in a candy store on these hundreds and hundreds free ebooks each day. Some are better than others and I try my best to give you the best of the best and read Look Inside. If this grabs me I post it. It's got to have a good title, good cover, and good content. If it grabs my attention I'll look. Kind of reminds of Blink by Malcolm Bradwell.

Here are some more Freebies for 2/28/2012

The Lonesome Child on Wysocki StreetEarl has designs on a family. In fact, he has his eyes on Mike and Kerry Seaton's family. Day after day is spent staked out near their home to learn everything he can about them so he can have the family he has always dreamed of. What he doesn't anticipate is the ghostly secret that is unknown to everyone involved. The secret lures him back to his stakeout spot even though he longs to turn away.

This is a short story.

"It's an all-too-rare surprise and delight, in the independent press, to discover writing as strong and evocative as Derek Clendening's. This is a writer whose work I look forward to reading more of, and whose career I look forward to following."

Michael Rowe, author of Enter, Night

ZOMBIES!!! (Complete Biography of 14 of the World's Most Popular Walking Undead)Are zombies real? Where do they come from? A Zombie, in a general description, is a non-living person who has lost his or her sense of identity or self-awareness, and is only interested in the consumption of any living organism around, no matter what the cost.

Overall, MOST are not a very intelligent group of creatures, but tend to make up for this deficiency in mass numbers. A lot of people have mixed ideas of what zombies actually look like. Some people believe zombies are bloody creatures with missing limbs and such, however a zombie can look just like a normal person, a person that has simply been bitten.

One thing is almost certainly true in every zombie tale, if you're bitten by one, you will become one. The state of "zombieism" is almost always severely contagious, and often tends to spread like wildfire.

This book provides a complete biography of several well-known types of Zombies with pictures of each.

The next one Clowns looks really good, based on a true story, and has a creepy cover! It's downloaded!

Clown in the MoonlightCLOWN IN THE MOONLIGHT is based in part on the true story of Ricky Kasso, the so-called Acid King, who murdered a friend in the Northport woods back in '84 claiming Satan told him to do it, then proceeded to bring high school classmates to view the mutilated body for days afterward. Occult, hardboiled, and noir matters enter the mix as a nameless drifter teaches Ricky and friends what the true nature of hell is really all about. Extras include the first chapter of Tom's forthcoming Bantam hardcover THE LAST KIND WORDS (due out June 5), the first chapter of his digital-only dark fantasy novel NIGHTJACK, and the short horror story "Shadder."

UPCOMING NOVEL: "THE LAST KIND WORDS"

From International Thriller Writers Award winner and Edgar Award nominee Tom Piccirilli comes a mesmerizing suspense novel that explores the bonds of family and the ways they're stretched by guilt, grief, and the chance for redemption.

Clowns remind of Wayne Gacy!!

The next one Charnel House looks really good!

Charnel House. Short Story.A man has moved into a haunted house, but just how far will he be willing to go to protect himself from danger?

Charnel House is a 5,500 word short story written to commemorate the 100th short story posted on the blog Alanjameskeogh.wordpress.com

It is not included in the Whispers in the Shadows series.

To read a two really, really good stories try In the Walls of Eryx by H.P. Lovecraft and don't ready or research anything on it and Pigeons From Hell by Robert E. Howard.
The Best of Robert E. Howard Volume 2: Grim Lands Page 281.

Enjoy!!

Here's a bonus for today---Not free but worth every penny-----The Other RoomThe Other Room is a collection of weird horror fiction, containing twelve stories of the uncanny and the surreal.

A naive student finds that his crumbling bedsit can be as haunted as any Gothic mansion.
A man stumbles across another world which is the mirror image of his own.
A young woman who everyone thinks is beautiful wonders why, given what she sees in the mirror each morning.

Influenced by writers such as Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman these tales, like all good horror stories, are as much about the psychology of the protagonist as the fate that awaits them.

The Other Room contains both new and previously published stories that will challenge your conceptions of horror and literary fiction.

Tales of Occult Horror: Real-life Encounters with the Supernatural
.99 cents Feel a profound sense of dread at the supernatural horrors that scratch at the surface of our world. This collection of thirteen true stories casts a dazzling light upon the dark realms of witchcraft and the occult. Read of frightening real-life encounters with apparitions, arcane magic, demons, poltergeists, and possessions. Inside are chronicles of several notorious locations, with unrivalled levels of detail and length. Discover the black magic mysteries of Clapham Wood - marvel at the supernatural phenomenon at Dudley Castle - and shudder with fear at the entities that stalk the corridors at Littledean Hall. An evil eye gazes on Coalhouse Fort - Pendle Hill - Whittington Castle - and Denny Abbey.

Peter Drake and T.M. Simmons are my two very favorite writers of true ghost stories and paranormal....Ghost Hunting Diary Volume II (Ghost Hunting Diaries)
This second collection of ghost hunting diaries is another selection from those T. M. Simmons kept during her twenty-plus years of adventures in the paranormal world. Naked Ghost, Oh, My! evolved from her encounter with Patrick at the Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas. That experience led to her second paranormal mystery, Dead Man Haunt, now also available in e-book format. Dead Time Ghosts is a tale of a happening at her own haunted house. Purity Perfidy relates the story of another house cleansing where ghosts bothering a child were successfully sent on their way. April Showers of Ghosts and Summer Solstice Ghost Hunt are cemetery investigations, wherein the investigators find proof of spirit communication. Shades of the Wild Wild West is another scary tale during a cemetery investigation, where one of her friends is attacked by an evil entity. In this volume, she has also added a couple extras for your enjoyment. These stories are true, and she hopes you also enjoy the excerpt from Dead Man Haunt, the fictional paranormal mystery included at the end.

Worth every penny! Enjoy! Keep the lights on[:)

Charlene:

My interests in scary stuff got started in a similar fashion as Robert E. Howard in that my grandmother told me ghost stories when I was a young boy. I'll never forget them. She also pulled out a Ouiji Board and had me participate. Me being so young and thinking it was some kind of game I thought she was moving the planchette after asking the questions because I sure wasn't. I've never touched one again. T.M. Simmons and Peter Drake both concur that messing with the Ouiji Board trying to contact a loved one can bring in something else that's evil from another dimension.

I believe there are good and bad spirits and have experienced both. The main thing is that I believe in Jesus Christ who can whip any evil spirit. I purchased the book Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back and believe what is written. Also Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon--Survival of Bodily Death is another one of my favorites. One of my best friends experienced death and was brought back to life eight times during open heart surgery via a defribulator. He shared with me his experiences that are similiar to what Dr. Moody writes about. I have reviewed both of these books.

My favorite shows growing up were Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock, Night Gallery, and the old Boris Karloff scary movies.

Ok - Quid Quo Pro Clarice I mean Charlene[:} What was the catalyst that got you interested into scary stuff?

This first one is based on a true story - Suffer a Witch - Just downloaded it! Eleven customer reviews and all Fives *****

Suffer a WitchDecades before the Salem trials, a brutal witch craze sweeps England during the civil war of the 1640s. When young Puritan zealot Matthew Hopkins, self-styled Witch-finder General, meets the power of folk magic in spirited Pippa Wylde, the daughter of a village "cunning-woman," the two are swept into a battle for survival of body and soul.

After a tragic event during which the medium is injured, Naomi and Martyn feel that whatever is causing this needs to be exorcised. As the two begin to get close, the entity begins to intensify its attacks. It is decided that they need to look into the history of the property and the people who lived in Naomi`s house to discover the truth behind the `mysterious room' underneath the house. As they look deeper into the house`s past, Naomi and Martyn discover a dark and terrible secret about the previous owner and how she was connected to the disappearances of several neighbourhood children. Will they discover the truth in time?

These Strange Worlds: Fourteen Dark TalesIf You Go Down to the Woods .....

The last witch trial in Gloucestershire was held in the Forest in 1906, making it the perfect setting for its very own Witch Project. The fifteen intrepid writers interviewed owners of pubs and haunted houses, unearthed the spirits of mysterious wells and pools, ancient standing stones, and the eerie industrial heritage of mines and mills. They visited castles and churches, uncovered ghosts of soldiers, murderers and old poets. They also researched Big Cat and wild boar sightings, not to mention the ghostly goings-on of a famous rock band in a forest castle. The Book, If You Go Down To The Woods....A Dean Witch Project, is crammed with photos and spooky stories from all over the Forest.

Walking At Night: A Collection of HorrorA childhood evil thought long dead reawakens. In the deep, dark woods death methodically stalks its prey.

A tortured survivor quests endlessly for atonement that may never come. Strange and terrifying creatures that shouldn't exist, do.

These are some of the chilling and speculative themes found in Brian J. Jarrett's Walking At Night: A Collection of Horror. A work some fifteen years in the making, this collection features some of the author's darkest themes and some of his strangest worlds yet imagined. This collection will take readers on nine suspense-filled trips to the dark side of humanity and to places beyond the realm of science and reason.

Old Man Miller's Dog
A man struggles to contain a horror from his childhood he thought he'd left behind.

The Ice Cream Man

Walking at Night
A young man trapped along a country road in the darkest of nights encounters his worst nightmare.

Otto's House
The dark woods behind a young woman's house hold a horror far worse than she could ever imagine.

Death Hollow
A dying old man recounts his tale of meeting death...and living to tell.

The Double-Cross
The perfect murder takes an unexpected turn.

Reflection
Four teenage boys stumble upon what appears to be a strange mirror inside a boarded-up cave. What they discover is not a mirror at all, and what's behind it might kill them all.

The Hidden and the Haunted
Cursed with horrific visions of murder, a man tirelessly searches for his missing sister and the atonement he so desperately needs.

Paranormal JourneysThey lurk in the darkest corners of a forgotten cemetery, within the shadows of a forlorn country hotel, among the swaying branches surrounding Devil Worshippers Mountain and inside the long corridors of an abandoned hospital. They are watching us, trying to make contact from the other side. They exist within a world between ours and the next. Take this journey with paranormal investigator Paul Cagle as he encounters supernatural phenomena while searching for the ultimate truth. It is a journey you will never forget.

Downloaded and first one I'm reading - true stuff!

Some really good ones! Enjoy!

Hi Alina:) Yes, Yes! I've seen The Whole Wide World about Robert E. Howard and the last two to three years of his life with girlfriend Novalyn Price Ellis - Vincent play Robert's role really good and so did Renee Zellweger who portrayed Novalyn; One Who Walked Alone: Robert E. Howard the Final Years Thank you for mentioning this as it's much appreciated because I'm a big fan of REH works; Blood and Thunder: The Life and Art of Robert E. Howard

Robert wrote quite a bit of horror stories and probably his scariest one is Pigeons From Hell. It was shown on Thriller with Boris Karloff and can be viewed on Netflix Episode 36 on this website ---- http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Thriller/70157146?trkid=2361637#height1463 Really good actors and very scary even in black and white.

To view a short intro to Pigeons From Helll please YouTube ----http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D38gnfPoAzI

For another scary story by REH one of my favorites is Man On The Ground.
Thanks again Alina as I can talk about Robert E. Howard all day!

I hope you're a regular here!

Freebies 3/1/2012

I'd like to thank everyone at Amazon[:) for all of these free ebooks at us.kinlib.com. I don't look anywhere else because Kinlib is compatible with my Kindle and I can keep the fonts the size I like. This is really cool. I still purchase ebooks regularly of my favorite authors but it's nice sampling these freebies and finding a diamond in the rough! An Amazon fan forever!! I also purchase regular books, too.

I can't thank my son enough for giving me this Kindle for my birthday last year as he know how much I love to read. He's a lifetime yearly subscriber and gets free shipping on everything. I'm like a kid in a candy store now!

Authors - We Amazon ereaders are looking for the best so give it to us in a short novella/sample freebie and you might have a fan for life! Spread the word. Thank you. This is how I found James Everington, T.M. Simmons, Peter Drake, and more!! I'm purchasing everything they put out except lovey dovey stuff.

This is one of my hobbies by doing this as it's something that's fun and I like helping others. Who knows - Maybe one day I'll be considered an expert and be famous like Siskel and Ebert:)

Authors - If there's nothing in the Look Inside, a corny title, erotica, or the cover doesn't grab my attention I move on as I'm looking for the best. When I first started doing this I put just about everything and anything. Now I'm more selective so if I put your freebie here I'm endorsing you and probably downloaded it, read it, and gave you an honest nice review.

Shining in the Dark - Stephen King: Page to ScreenCarrie. The Shining. Christine. The Shawshank Redemption.

Four of Stephen King's best stories. Four outstanding motion pictures directed by auteurs as diverse as Brian De Palma and Stanley Kubrick.

Since the publication of his first novel in 1974, Stephen King has entertained, enthralled and terrified the world in equal measure. Forty-nine novels and more than three hundred and fifty million copies sold later, he's still going strong. But for a figure who has made such an indelible impact on the landscape of contemporary fiction, King's influence on cinema is equally profound, with hundreds of motion pictures and television productions based on his work; some more loosely than others.

Shining in the Dark focuses on four of King's most seminal works, and the four classic movies they inspired. It examines the themes common to King's work and how these are transferred to celluloid.

Shining in the Dark is an indispensible resource for those studying the books and movies of Stephen King, and a must-read for all fans of the undisputed master of horror.

Also includes a free sample of Gavin Bell's full length novel: HALFWAY TO HELL.

MercyA young man right out of high school visits with his grandfather for a fishing trip. The day starts off bright, but turns into a nightmare from which he might never recover.

Weird TalesRichard Ferguson serves up a gourmet's delight of living, walking, shrieking nightmares.

If you are a connoisseur of heart-pounding terror accompanied by a side dish of the eeriest of whimsy-tales brewed in the outer limits of a great imagination, you couldn't ask for a more frightening menu.

Richard Ferguson has prepared five of his most unsettling short pieces -- bizarre tales of dark doing and unthinkable acts where horror and madness take on weird, unearthly forms . . . where indistinct shapes in the dark and bumps in the night are always signs of something dreadful on the prowl.

The settings are familiar and unsuspected.

RUM AND HORS-D'OEUVRES -- One would hardly think two bankers relaxing on a porch would attract the forces of evil . . . unless one of them practiced the dark arts of Haiti.

THE GENEALOGIST -- When Harry Poindexter sets out to learn about his ancestors, he has no idea what malevolent forces he will unleash.

THE NIGHTRIDER'S SONG -- Doctor Vodun and The Mambo Sisters find out loose lips can sometimes do more than sink ships when their rock group heads for the next gig.

LI FAN'S CAMERA -- Johnny Corbett discovers that sometimes crime not only doesn't pay, it can unlock an unfathomable surprise.

BAEL STUMPE -- When Bael meets his father after thirteen years, he enters the world of madness.

In Richard Ferguson's cookbook, the entrees are always flavored with evil spices.

Elixir of Death"Elixir is a place," Laura murmured, "of unspeakable joy and unspeakable evil, and the journeys we can't avoid taking between them."
Highschool English teacher Darin Hartley becomes fascinated with one of his students, Laura Whitcomb, a girl with a tragic and violent past. When he agrees to read the first chapter of a novel she's written, he doesn't realize those few pages will introduce him to the nightmarish town of Elixir, a place certain government agents don't want him asking any questions about. Yet even if Elixir is no longer on any conventional map, Darin has to find and enter it, because it holds the secret to the restoration of his sanity and happiness.

Great cover and Look inside - elixir of death!! A really great review*****

Losing Time Gaining EternityThese are dark days and nights for Devlin Haddon.
Why has he woken up in the woods covered in blood?
This is a man with secrets from the world and from himself. But he begins to get answers when he is drawn to his cellar beneath the barn; his special room where a skinned body hangs from a beam.

His situation worsens when he meets the dark stranger who takes him to a place that is to become his new home for 'all homes are sacrosanct'.

In the hellscape the truth is revealed, and Devlin meets his new companion, for eternity.

From the writer of MASSIVE ABRASION.

Dracula (Illustrated)This edition of DRACULA by Bram Stoker features the original text, along with Stoker's short story, "Dracula's Guest," beautifully designed and carefully proofed for the Kindle and including several detailed maps and historical illustrations.

Told in a series of first-person missives and reports, and set in 1890s Transylvania and England, DRACULA is the source of every vampire story told in the 20th century, the founding text of the entire genre. Count Dracula, as Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, Mina Murray, and Dr. Von Helsing learn, is a dangerous and powerful creature who's lived for hundreds of years and possesses powers no mortal can claim. Bent on creating legions of Un-Dead followers in populous London, Dracula must be stopped-but how?

Also includes a brief introduction and author bio.

That's it. Congratulations!

Enjoy Folks!

The Old Forrestal Place (An Anthology of Short Horror Stories)
The Old Forrestal Place is a fast paced, adrenaline pumping series of short horror stories. Set in the town of Wilde's edge it narrates the encounters of the residents when the protagonist accidentally released a long buried evil.

The stories are highly engaging and written in a style which moves the plot line along quickly.The characters are convincing and you can feel and hear their desperation as they struggle against the evil which seek to overcome them, one by one.

The reader is sucked into the world of the residents as the stories unfold. The tension builds up until the final episode when the end finally comes. Or does it...?

If you can find this story Man Overboard by Winston Churchill it's an excellent horror story. Who'd ever thoughr that Churchill could write a great horror story? Man Overboard takes place on a ship sailing on the Red Sea. It was about a man that was on a ship. There was a concert on the ship and the man went outside to get some fresh air and have a cigarette. That's all as I'm not a Spoiler.

Enjoy!

Let's not forget the classics.

The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe (Includes Essay About the History of the Horror Genre).
There are many Poe collections and stories freely available and a number of versions in the 99c category.

This is seriously one of the most suspenseful and gripping works I've ever read The Monk; a romance.

This is a very clever take off of the gothic genre by Jane Austen. Very entertaining and amusing. Northanger Abbey

There are a number of ghostly tales by Sheridan La Fanu. Vol 1 here: J. S. Le Fanu's Ghostly Tales, Volume 1. If you like them then search for Sheridan La Fanu and pick up the rest of the free volumes.

Of course we can't forget Frankenstein and Dracula.

The Castle of Otranto is another free classic credited with being the first horror/gothic genre books ever written along with The Monk.

Entwined - Tales from the CityRust & Blood: StoriesRUST & BLOOD

Stories of horror and crime from Ed Kurtz, author of BLEED.

Love and cannibalism, retribution and madness, the horrors people commit in the name of goodness and the abominations that await behind closed doors. RUST & BLOOD collects nine stories of horror and crime where the tables are always turned and no one ever gets out unscathed.

Tower of the Living Dead - Part 1Ginger's MarbleThe family that feeds together strays together. It's about family. It's about zombies. It's about Ginger.

This short story was selected as a finalist in a fiction contest by Brains magazine .

Bonus content: please enjoy the first chapter of my coming of age horror novel "Fall Leaves and the Black Dragon"

Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps-Volume 2 - New York City (Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - New York City)Like The Don said, "Buy this book, or I'll make you an offer you can't refuse."

"Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - Volume 2- New York City" is not a continuation of "Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - Volume 1- New York City," but rather a complement to Volume I. Volume 2 starts in the time period of the early 1820's, and ends in the mid 1900's.

This is not a book about nice people. This is a book about the lowest forms of life ever to walk the face of the earth: Mafioso, murderers, con artists, prostitutes, base street thugs, crooked politicians; people who do deliciously decadent things to other people, as easily as stepping on a roach . The exception is New York City Detective Joseph Petrosino, who took on the vicious Black Hand, but lost his life in Sicily because he wasn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.

A Laymon Kind of NightA late-night walk home through a city teeming with danger...a nosy neighbor who discovers more than he bargained for...a take on Body Snatchers with vans instead of pods... Journey into the shadowy realms of human behavior where our darkest impulses are exposed to the light.
