Free Books for Kindle

In case you missed my earlier post, here it is again.  Open Road Media has set the price of 5000 of its books to $0.  Fritz Leiber, Harlan Ellison, Richard S. Prather, lots of poetry and nonfiction and classic fiction.  You cannot go wrong.  Just go to Amazon's Advanced Search for Kindle, type Open Road Media into the publisher blank and sort low to high.  I hope your Kindle has lots of memory.

I've seen this mentioned on other blogs this morning too. Apparently there are lots of genre fiction titles available, including romance and romantic-suspense.

You name it, they have it. Great stuff, and it's all free!

Janis Gore said...

I found the announcement. It lasts until 12/20. Merry Christmas!

Greg Daniel said...

Even more can be found by using "Open Road Media Sci-Fi & Fantasy" and/or "Open Road Media Mystery & Thriller" as the Publisher in Amazon's Advance Search.

I got 15 books this morning and will check again when we get home this afternoon.

What a deal!

I wonder who writes all those westerns as by "Brett Halliday"? Do you know any, Bill?

I've gotten a dozen or so, and am still browsing.

Bill Crider said...

I think Davis Dresser wrote all of those. I read one years ago.

I slipped into some of the .99 c before I stopped. I ended up with 47. Yikes. Maybe, someday, I'll read them. There was a dearth of mysteries (maybe 2?) a lot of Harlan Ellison but no other SF-F, I got a few books of poetry, some classics, some humor. Thanks for the tip, Bill!

Brian Freemantle
Ted Wood
Peter Dickinson

OK, I took the Powder River westerns and the collected stories of William Humphrey.

Stop me before I download again!

Went back and got the Michael Lewin mysteries and a collection by Algis Budrys.

Richard, there is a ton of sci-fi on there besides Ellison, including many books by Robert Sheckley & John Brunner. Both are relatively forgotten these days but if you like classic sci-fi it doesn't get much better than these two.

Richard Robinson said...

I must not have been looking right, I saw a couple of Brunner, but not the other authors. But then I sorted by price.

Richard Robinson said...

I only looked at the ones for $0.

If you search the way Bill suggests in his post (open road media and then 'low to high') then it will list everything. Lots of good stuff in every genre. It may take you half the weekend to get through the list though! I'm on page 113 and still haven't reached the end. Having a blast working my way through it however.

I ended up downloading about 20 books to my daughter's Kindle (I don't have one, but obviously now I'm gonna have to get one), including some Muriel Spark, Gillian White, and Howard Fast. I also got a biography of Joe Dellasandro. You have to admire someone who was once a Warhol Factory denizen and is still alive today!

Deb, I recommend the Kindle Paperwhite. It's clearer and easier to read and the light lets Jackie read in bed while I am trying to sleep.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

I love reading how many different authors different people are finding to buy.

Bill Crider said...

I love it, too, and I'm going back to look around some more.

Roy Epstein said...

I don't think anyone has mentioned Loren D. Estleman yet.....His wonderful Detroit series is included here. Also, one of my favorite sci-fi writers, Robert Silverberg, has a few on here.....Fans of more modern sci-fi should check out the books they have by Ian McDonald, Ian R. MacLeod, and Dave Duncan.

Horace McCoy has some great novels on here, FYI.
