This week we have an interesting choice of books.
If you were a fan of Fractured Fairytales, This short story may be for you. I like free stories because you have a taste of the book before you buy.

Each fairy tale in the series puts a delightful new spin on classic stories and themes.

Now for something Weird!
Strangers in the Land (The Zombie Bible) by Stant Litore. A STEAL at $1.99. The first in a triology.
Stant Litore’s The Zombie Bible retells biblical tales and ancient history as episodes in humanity’s long struggle with hunger … and with the hungry dead.
Four must stand against the dead. The aging prophetess Devora. Hurriya, the slave girl. Zadok, a legend among warriors. And the widower Barak, who has sworn to defend his homeland from a migration of walking corpses greater than has ever been seen.
Devora is all too familiar with the unclean dead. She was there when her mother was pulled screaming from her tent by zombies. And when her mother rose, famished for flesh, it was Devora’s hand that ended her hunger. Now Devora has struck an uneasy alliance with those she fears most among the living. Yet the strangers in the land must stand together if they are to rid the land of its curse.
The Mad Scientist’s Beautiful Daughter by Angela N. Hunt. The Kindle Ebook is a STEAL at $2.99.
I am the Mad Scientist’s Beautiful Daughter.
In the so-called Real World, my father, Hugh Marvin Hyatt, was a high energy physicist, specializing in Electrostatic and Electro-overstress Events, up to and including Electromagnetic Pulse Events.
He played with lightning. For fun. And on top of all of that, he was just my Dad.
December 7th, 2002, around 10 in the evening, my father died.
For years, I resisted writing about him, tired of constantly living in his shadow. Until the day my eldest daughter turned five and she asked me about rainbows and I began to give her the exact same lecture about the property of light that my father gave me.
Yes, this is about my father. But it’s also about finding your way when the pole star that always drew you home is no more.
