Free E-books I've 'dug up' for you

I haven't had the time to finish reading a couple of these e-books. Please download them for free/donate money to the authors at your own discretion. Views expressed in these books are those of the respective authors alone and have nothing to do with me.

All artwork below is copyright to the respective artists. Please do not reproduce. If the artists/authors would like me to remove the miniature pictures please let me know and I will do so. Ditto with the book links.

To sum up: My favorite one is "A Galaxy of Heroes" by Gus Flory. The other books aren't quite my style, but are books by some really nice people. I'm sure they'd love the support of downloads/reviews if you'd be willing.

Cover for 'Rubberband Lazer - Or, The Adventures of Casey Norider and Jaq Synergy, Vol. 1'  Sci-Fi/Cowboy Novel "Rubberband Laser" pay by Donation (or free to download) by Nathan Reese Maher. This wasn't exactly 'my kind of book' but I know the author, so I thought I'd pass on the good word. Looks like a Sci-Fi/Western with cowboys, martians, and rubberband laser guns. Looks very cool! https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/156301

Bubblegum Princess (A great way to tell your little princess you love them!) Children's Fiction Currently free (limited time only) a very nice book for reading to your daughter by S.E. Gordan who's a great guy: http://www.amazon.com/Bubblegum-Princess-little-princess-ebook/dp/B007YUP1FS/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1335980931&sr=1-1 Please support this fine author and person by downloading his book and giving him a nice review. Thanks! Lots of ads at the back which is annoying, but, oh well. Also, the story might not work so well for little boys. ;)

Product Details Sci-Fi Book (Adult War Story) This one's not quite my style. Too serious, too much killing. http://www.amazon.com/In-Her-Name-Empire-ebook/dp/B0026RI9TO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1335983005&sr=1-1

Product Details Free Sci-Fi Book This book's start is a cool, action-packed space battle. After that I kind of lost interest. Might want to check it out. ;)  http://www.amazon.com/Honour-Knights-Edition-Battle-ebook/dp/B0047DWCDO/ref=zg_bs_158580011_23

Product Details Free Fantasy Book with an Internal Link to Another I haven't had the chance to read all of "Mage-Wrought" yet, but the author looks like he knows what he's doing. Might want to give this one a look: http://www.amazon.com/Mage-Wrought-The-Warrior-ebook/dp/B0078IO8G4

Galaxy of Heroes A Free Sci-Fi Novel (This book is my favorite of those listed here. It's epic, so far as I've read.) The novel looks and feels great. A lot of quick action, punchy lines, and stuff like Star Wars. Looking forward to reading it myself. Witty main character, vivid aleins and descriptions.  http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-of-Heroes-ebook/dp/B002RL9L96/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1335986608&sr=1-2

  A Free Sci-Fi Short Story (Adult) This short story was really interesting, well-written, and contained a lot of action. My only problem with it were several 'adult' references which (I believe) make in inappropriate for younger audiences. I'd rate it: 18+ Only "Adult References and Violence" They weren't 'terrible' but it wouldn't be something I'd want my younger readers reading either.


Labyrinth Lord: Revised Edition (no-art version) A Free Tabletop RPG Game For some reason you can't get Warrior, Rogue and Mage on RPGnow.com anymore. However, I did find an interesting retro-clone of the original D&D game. There is an advanced 'no art' book too for free and a very sweet character sheet (also free). The emphasis on combat was a little over the top, but as a very nice PDF with all the original D&D basic set rules (and some nice additions like levels up to 20 included) it's not a bad thing to check out. Gives you an idea of where the whole tabletop gaming industry started. It's also a fine example of how to layout a book better than I did. I rolled up a character but died pretty quickly. Still, might be worth a look for all you 'old school' RPG fans out there.
