Free Kindle Books

Rumor has it that Open Road Media has listed 5000 books for free on Kindle, including the Digger novels by Warren Murphy and some Shell Scott books by Richard S. Prather.  For example, this one and this one.  You can search around for more.  Better jump on this deal!

I got 37 Shell Scott mysteries for $0.00. The other four are available for an insignificant amount of money.

You can't go wrong with a deal like that!

Thanks very much!

Thanks so much! I browsed through the Open Road fiction catalog and also so for free Ray Garton, Harlan Ellison, Brett Halliday (a lot of westerns), Hubert Selby Jr., James Jones, Stanley Elkin, etc. Alas, Amazon's categorization of books is not fool proof. After 80 or so pages of free books I did not see the Prather or the Murphy book.

Still fun to look a well worth the effort. Just go to the Advanced Search page for Kindle and enter Open Road for publisher and sort price "low to high".

Thanks. I got some Ray Garton and Hubert Selby Jr.

Got some Joseph Hansen and Richard Prather

Bill Crider said...

What a great deal this is! Hansen is another of those undeservedly forgotten writers.

A bunch of Brian Garfield titles, non fiction by Ann Corio (!) and Bel Kaufman, an Irwin Shaw novel I'd never heard of. Still going,

Thanks!

Fritz Leiber, The Black Gondolier & Other Stories

Bill Crider said...

Thanks for mentioning the Ann Corio book. Got it.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

I recommend Stanley Elkin's THE DICK GIBSON SHOW to anyone who hasn't read it. It's a classic of the earlier, dare I say better, days of talk radio. Also Andre Dubus.

Horror author Rex Miller Iceman, Frenzy and his other novels is on the site too.

My Kindle is going to explode.

Steve Oerkfitz said...

Got about 30 titles and none are downloading to my kindle. I haven't used it for awhile so I am expecting to be on the phone to Amazon for a few hours fixing this.

8 of 9 titles in the Albert Samson series by Michael Z. Lewin (all but #1).

Don Coffin said...

I have long felt that Amazon needs to let us select multiple titles at a time instead of one-at-a-time...

And Mike Lewi's books (not just the Samsons) are a steal, even it you have to pay for them. Among other things, he nails the setting (I have lived in Indianapolis, off-and-on for most of my life).

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

I like his Samson and LeRoy Powder books a lot. The English-set ones are OK, but I prefer the others.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

And if you like spy stuff, there are a lot of Brian Freemantle books worth getting.

Don Coffin said...

If anyone is interested, John R. Tunis's three great baseball novels--The Kid from Tompkinsville, The Kid Comes Back, and World Series--are in the mix.

Bill Crider said...

I loved those when I was a kid.
