Favorite Free Reads!

My Mom was looking for good SF or Fantasy books, cheap FREE. So I compiled a list, with links, for her.

On Basilisk Station, by David Weber

Oath of Swords, also by David Weber, one of the best Epic Fantasy series out there.

A Hymn Before Battle, by John Ringo, excellent military SF

1632, by Eric Flint, rollicking good alternate history

Draw One in the Dark, Sarah Hoyt, urban fantasy fun

In the Heart of Darkness, David Drake and Eric Flint, for more alternate history, Roman this time.

The Forlorn, Dave Freer, space opera by one of my favorite authors.

All Cats are Grey, by Andre Norton

The Answer, by H Beam Piper, and any others by him you can find!

Ham Sandwich, James Schmitz, classic SF

Drums of Jeopardy, the book from which Boris Karloff may have drawn his name. Pulp fiction

The Insidious Fu Manchu, by Sax Rohmer, more old school pulp fiction.

The Moonstone, Wilkie Collins, one of the first detective novels.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L Frank Baum, a perennial favorite of mine.

The Mysterious Island, Jules Verne, my favorite Verne book.

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Rudyard Kipling

A Princess of Mars, ER Burroughs, more classic SF/Fantasy fusion

Starliner, David Drake

I may add more later, Mom, but this should start you! And my readers, suggestions in the comments are always welcome, she isn’t interested in Paranormal Romance, or “adult” themed books.

  1. excellent list, I’ve liked everything on that list that I’ve read.

    I’d suggest James P. Hogan’s Inherit the Stars as well. While predictable, I thought it came off well. Anything by Kipling is good.
