I get a lot of freebies, most of genres I don't mind free but don't want to be browsing in. It helps keep my recommendation list focused.
Thanks for that...I too will have to do this (for a different genre)!

Thanks, DR.

I'd already changed the recommendation status of the books in question months ago, but they keep returning to haunt every device I buy or refresh! They seem to reappear on the carousel of downloadable books on my Android devices whenever there's a Kindle app update. The problem is that they take the place of books I'd rather return to or resume reading.

I also winced when I read my own words in your quote. I sounded a tad ungrateful for the opportunity to try horror books at a discount or free, didn't I? I'd have gone back to change my post if it weren't immortalized in the very response that made me aware of my own ingratitude! Sobeit.

Some of Your Blood by Theodore Sturgeon, currently $3.99 at Amazon Main US only and Barnes&Noble

$3.49 at Kobo, and eligible for coupons (i.e., $1.75 with test50 right now)

Named one of the Horror Writers Association’s Top 40 Horror Books of All Time, Theodore Sturgeon’s gripping psychological thriller both fascinates and terrifies with the story of a troubled soldier and his bizarre, violent obsession with vampirism

At the height of an unnamed war, a soldier is confined for striking an officer. Referred to as George Smith in official papers and records, the prisoner comes under the observation of Army psychiatrist Philip Outerbridge, who asks the young man to put his story down on paper. The result is a shocking tale of abuse, violence, and twisted love, a personal history as dark and troubling as any the doctor has ever encountered. Believing the patient to be dangerously psychotic, Dr. Outerbridge must dig deeper into his psyche. And when the truth about the strange case of George Smith is fully revealed, the results will be devastating.

Told through letters, transcripts, and case studies, Some of Your Blood is an extraordinary, poignant yet terrifying, genre-defying novel.

Until October 31st, small Canadian speculative fiction specialty publisher Chizine are holding 50% off selected dark fantasy/horror collections and novels when you direct-buy.

Many of the titles have blurb info praise from Ellen Datlow, Cory Doctorow, and Locus and other magazines, and several authors have won or been nominated for significant fantasy and horror awards.

Discount is automatic and no coupon is needed; most titles work out to $5. Outside their own webstore and Weightless Books, CZP are distributed by HarperCollins in most outlets and the titles I spot-checked were priced around $11.10 CAD when I looked in the Kindle store.

They've overhauled their website since last I shopped there and the store login links are no longer obvious, but you should still get a DRM-free bundle of ePub/Mobi/PDF, though there may now be site backup/re-download limitations.

CZP have a blogpost with a list of links to the eligible titles, but there's no obvious way to link to just that, so you'll have to scroll down to the Oct 20th Halloween Sale announcement on their frontpage.

Sale titles are:

Every House is Haunted by Ian Rogers
Eutopia by David Nickle
Enter, Night by Michael Rowe (Lambda Literary and Spectrum Award-winning author)
Horror Story and Other Horror Stories by Robert Boyczuk
Hair Side, Flesh Side by Helen Marshall
The Hair Wreath and Other Stories by Halli Villegas
Monstrous Affections by David Nickle (Black Quill Award winner)
Picking Up the Ghost by Tone Milazzo
Stories from the Plague Years by Michael Marano (contains a Shirley Jackson Award nominee novella)
Remember Why You Fear Me by Robert Shearman (World Fantasy, British Fantasy, and Shirley Jackson Award-winning author; blurb says this collects his best reprint tales + 10 previously uncollected stories)
The World More Full of Weeping by Robert J. Wiersema

If you're strapped for cash around this time of the year, CZP has in the past held a more general 50% off almost everything sale on Black Friday if you think you can wait and see.

Today's US Kindle Daily Deal is (it says here) "five thrilling Halloween-themed books." Four of them are mysteries, but one is the Oxford University Press edition of M. R. James' ghost stories for $2.99. As discussed above, much of James' work is public domain in the US, but this is still a good deal if you want a cheap annotated edition of all the stories published in his lifetime.

Whisper by Michael Bray is FREE today on Amazon US.

Quote:
It was supposed to be a fresh start. A place for Steve & Melody Samson to begin their new life together away from the noise and crime of the city. However, their new home – an idyllic cottage nestled deep within the dense solitude of Oakwell forest-has a disturbing history, hidden for generations by the locals. There is evil in Hope House, and the cursed forest that surrounds it. Evil that has awakened after lying dormant for decades, and has terrifying plans for the young couple.

Once you hear the whispers, it may already be too late.
Sounds fairly traditional, but the reviews are very good.

ETA: Just found a collection on Amazon entitled Great British Horror, Volume I from the same publisher. It includes Whisper, as well as the following:

The Thing Behind the Door by G.R. Yeates
Happily Ever After by Matt Shaw
Insulation by Craig Saunders
High Moor by Graeme Reynolds
The Copycat Murders by William Meikle
Duplicity by Ian Woodhead
Sam by Iain Rob Wright

Price for the next 5 days is $0.99 -- with the proceeds being donated to Centrepoint (a UK-based charity).
