Some great finds among the free Kindle books offered today at amazon.com.
Vin of Venus, a Beat To the Punch novella by David Cranmer, Paul D. Brazill, and Garnett Elliott, a hardboiled/sword and planet mash-up.
Hitting Back, a 5000-word short strory by Linda L. Richards about a female assassin.
Copp for Hire, the first (of six) Joe Copp, P.I. novels by Don Pendleton, creator of Mack Bolan, the Executioner. Originally published in 1987.
To add to your Pendleton fix, there's Guns of Terra 10, a 1970 SF novel with treacherous aliens invading Earth.
Speaking of Pendleton, his widow Linda has a new-agey "non-fiction" book available: Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom. This is evidently a 2002 follow-up to Don and Linda Pendlton's 1990 To Dance With Angels. Doctor James Martin Peebles, 80 years dead, speaks and offers advice from the other side. Three Principles was a 2002 EPPIE finalist. I am wisely withholding judgment on this one.
And Rachel E. Holman has edited Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Worlds, featuring stories from nineteen writers (many now well-known) who were helped and encouraged by MZB.
