I, Sniper: A Bob Lee Swagger Novel

They sent me an email with the code "OTS2" for BookShout, but the link in the email actually used the code "OTS3", which gave the latter set of books. I used it, and went back and manually entered "OTS2", which gave me the first set of books, and I was able to use that, too. Out of curiosity, I decided to try "OTS1" (expired) and "OTS4" (invalid).

So it seems that you can probably get two free books, one from each set, but you have to use BookShout to read them.

Gatsby Girls by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Quote:
She was an impulsive, fashionable and carefree 1920s woman who embodied the essence of the Gatsby Girl -- F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, Zelda. As Fitzgerald said, "I married the heroine of my stories." All of the eight short stories contained in this collection were inspired by Zelda.

Fitzgerald, one of the foremost writers of American fiction, found early success as a short story writer for the most widely read magazine of the early 20th century -- the Saturday Evening Post. Fitzgerald's stories, first published by the Post between 1920 and 1922, brought the Jazz Age and the "flapper" to life and confirmed that America was changing faster than ever before. Women were bobbing their hair, drinking and flirting shamelessly, and Fitzgerald brought these exciting Gatsby Girls to life in the pages of the Post.

A foreword by Jeff Nilsson, archivist for the Post, adds historical context to this wonderful, new collection, which is highlighted by an introduction written by Fitzgerald himself. Each story is accompanied by the original illustrations and the beautiful cover images from the Post. Read the stories that made F. Scott Fitzgerald one of the most beloved writers in America -- and around the world -- still today.

Anthology of the World's Greatest Poetry, Free from Delphi Classics

Delphi Classics, a part of the Delphi publishing company, has a brand new Facebook page. "To announce this news," they are offering a free poetry ebook--an anthology of "thousands of the World's Greatest Poems ever composed." It's available both as an ePub and a Kindle/mobi.

I know that you probably have a dozen anthologies of the world's greatest poetry (according to their editors) lying around at home. So do I. But do you have one in digital form? Do you have this anthology; this one may have bazillions (ack! the spell checker didn't flag that!) of poems that none of the other anthologies do. You wouldn't want to live a deprived life by not having copies of these other poems, would you? I thought not. So keep reading.

A simple way to obtain the ebook is to go to this page: https://www.facebook.com/notes/delph...86165844873258. You should see a link to download Kindle/mobi and a link to download the ePub. Click on the link of the format that you want, or both of them if you feel so inclined, and the download(s) should start very soon.

I would have given you direct links to the downloads, if I could've figured out how to do it (Ack!). Anyway, it's still easy peasy just like I've given it. I don't know that you even have to log in to Facebook (I didn't have to, but I think that I may always be logged in) and you don't have to say that you "Like" Delphi Classics to get the book. No hoops to have to jump through, I like that!

Free from the start-up small press re-publisher via KDP Select @ Amazon:

The Cruelest Lie by Milton E. Lyles, a coming-of-age suspenseful literary drama novel which looks to be of the Southern Gothic sort, set in a Louisiana small town with plenty of murders, lies, and hidden secrets being dragged into the light, originally out from small press Zinn Communications in 1998.

The CRUELEST LIE is a gritty telling of treachery, greed, love, betrayal, and courage set against the lush background of the Louisiana bayou country. The story centers around the deaths of three young men and the small town corruption and avarice that threatens to destroy an innocent boy setting in motion a deadly struggle between integrity and iniquity, truth and deceit.

Bo LeDeaux, at seventeen, by fate and cruel circumstances is compelled to escape the ruthless judgment of Sheriff Gilbow Brown, a man who uses the law to fuel his insatiable appetite for money and power. Bo’s confrontation with the sheriff is complicated by the murderous scheming of Tommy Sligo. A madman acting on the commands of an unforgiving God, and by Bo’s own wild mother, who fights to preserve her own ebbing sanity and her insatiable desire for cocaine long enough to save her son from the sheriff’s malice. Bo, Ruby and Gilbow Brown engage in a deadly struggle that plays Ruby’s beauty and cunning against Bo’s youthful isolation and Gilbow’s brute strength and unmitigated corruption, a struggle certain to doom Bo if Gilbow triumphs.

The ensuing melee unearths the web of lies that grips their small Louisiana town, lies that delineate past sins, heartless betrayals, brutal murders, and unremitting evil until only one lie remains, the cruelest lie that threatens to destroy them all.

Free from Amazon - Before I Forget by Leonard Pitts Jr. I haven't read any of his fiction, but I always enjoyed his columns in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

This powerful novel of three generations of black men bound by blood — and by histories of mutual love, fear, and frustration — gives author Leonard Pitts the opportunity to explore the painful truths of black men's lives, especially as they play out in the fraught relations of fathers and sons. As 50-year-old Mo tries to reach out to his increasingly tuned-out son Trey (who himself has become an unwed teenaged father), he realizes that the burden of grief and anger he carries over his own estranged father has everything to do with the struggles he encounters with his son. Part road novel, part character study, and part social critique, and written in compulsively readable prose, Before I Forget is the work of a major new voice in American fiction. Pitts knows inside and out the difficulties facing black men as they grapple with the complexities of their roles as fathers.

Bargain @ $2.99 for today only (Nov 19th) according to the newsletter from Open Road Media (couponable @ Kobo, should be available in all the standard stores, price good for Canada & US, possibly other regions as well, etc.):

Twice Upon a Time by the late Daniel Stern (Wikipedia), a collection of his literary stories remixing other literary stories, originally published in various literary magazines and first collected by W. W. Norton & Co. in 1992.

This is a bit pricier than ORM's fiction sale titles usually are, but I'll note that Stern's two other collections of reimagined classics from them are currently priced at $9-13 CAD each, depending on where you look.

More sly and imaginative tributes to some of the greatest writing of the modern age, from author Daniel Stern

In Twice Told Tales, Stern wonderfully reimagined classics of world literature—from Forster to Freud—in homage to their authors and the power of great writing.Twice Upon a Time continues the project, though this time Stern goes further, weaving stories around texts as diverse as Marx and Engels’s The Communist Manifesto and the poetry of Wallace Stevens. In “Bartleby the Scrivener,” Melville’s famous copyist is relocated to Hollywood; the hero is an agent who “would prefer not to retire.”

Infectiously clever, Twice Upon a Time enchants like the best of the authors to whom it pays tribute.

Free from the small press publisher via KDP Select @ Amazon:

Darwin & Fitzroy by long-time actress and occasional playwright Juliet Aykroyd, a play based on the complicated relationship of Charles Darwin (I really shouldn't have to link you to Wikipedia for him, no matter how poorly you might have been educated regarding evolution) and Robert FitzRoy (Wikipedia), Captain of the HMS Beagle. This has been performed in theatres and here's a post from the British Society for Literature and Science's blog about it.

DARWIN & FITZROY is the first published play in nearly 150 years that authentically portrays Charles Darwin and Robert FitzRoy, two iconic figures in English history, and captures their turbulent, complex and competitive 35-year relationship that started with the voyage of the Beagle in 1831 and ended with FitzRoy’s suicide in 1865.

In life, what began with fledgling 23-year-old naturalist Charles Darwin being accepted by Commander Robert FitzRoy of the HMS Beagle to join his five-year voyage of exploration of South America and the world for the British Admiralty ended 35 years later with FitzRoy dying impoverished, buried in an unconsecrated grave in the lonely yard of the All Saints Church in Upper Norwood, while Darwin was interred near the tomb of Sir Isaac Newton in Westminster Abbey as a scientific genius for the ages.

And it was during the voyage of the Beagle that FitzRoy’s religious orthodoxy came face-to-face with Darwin’s early theories of evolution. From discussions in FitzRoy’s cabin in the 1830s off the coast of South America to the heated debates of today, the clash of these two geniuses has been felt for centuries as people try to explain the world through the prism of creationism vs. evolution.

Playwright Juliet Aykroyd was originally approached by Julian Hunt, Lord Hunt of Chesterton, CB, FRS, who graciously wrote the Foreword to this publication, when he was the Chief Executive of the UK Meteorological Office after he had seen her play about the architect John Vanbrugh. Lord Hunt was the ninth Director of the Meteorological Office, Admiral Robert FitzRoy being the first, and he was interested in bringing FitzRoy’s contributions during the first half of the 19th century to light; contributions that included his commanding of the Beagle and the invention of the daily weather report. Drawing on her personal history as a professional actor and as an award-winning playwright, it was Juliet Aykroyd’s idea that the play should be about the stormy relationship between Charles Darwin and Robert FitzRoy.

The first performances of the play were at the University of Reading and the Bloomsbury Theatre in London when Lord Hunt was retiring his post in 1997 and subsequent performances included one at the Royal Institution of Great Britain in 2009.

The Forbidden Ride: An Icelandic Love Story by Gerald & Loretta Hausman (Wikipedia), the former of whom is a folkloric storyteller with a number of literary awards and quite a few trad-publications to his credit. This is some kind of newly-written historical literary coming-of-age magical realism-sounding adventure drama set in 10th century Iceland, and I have this inordinate fondness for cultures which produce dragon boats and Iceland is my 2nd favourite country, and thus I'm posting this.

THE FORBIDDEN RIDE is the story of 15-year-old Freyja and the love of her life Jarn who is 17. Set in 10th century Iceland, a time of harsh laws and cruel men, Freyja falls in love with Jarn, a handsome young man from the next settlement, only to have him ripped from her by her father Sigurd as he enforces a merciless, ancient Icelandic law against Jarn for the crime of riding Sigurd's spirit horse Faxi without permission.

Surrounded by customs and rules that make little sense to her, Freyja must overcome her lack of status as a young woman in a man’s world of brutal justice and blood in order to save her family from banishment and shame, and with the help of the magical shaman-horse Faxi, to regain her freedom to be with Jarn.

Free from the author via KDP Select @ Amazon:

From Here: Three Short Tales by Elizabeth Malin, who under the penname of Libby Sternberg has had a few mystery novels small-pressed from Five Star and Bancroft, and under the penname of Libby Malin is a Sourcebooks-published author of humorous chick-lit/romantic comedy.

These ones are general literary/contemporary fiction tales.

FROM HERE: A semi-retired opera star prepares for a role with a small regional troupe, reminiscing about his life and a now-deceased mentor, a tenor who sang so beautifully he brought even the jaded narrator to tears.

THE DIVA AND THE DRUG ADDICT: Two very different individuals are thrown together at a halfway house after spending time in therapy for personal problems. They learn to accommodate each other, but struggle with their singular challenges.

RUSSIAN TROPICS: An obscure Romanov princess escapes to Florida with her uncle, but when he dies, she must make her way in the strange land alone, always hoping her family will join her. Fifteen years later, she works as a maid for a gentle employer who offers her a brighter future...just as a hurricane threatens the land and the truth threatens her heart.

Bargain @ $2.99 for today only (Nov 24th) according to the newsletter from Open Road Media (couponable @ Kobo, should be available in all the standard Canada & US stores, may also be discounted in other regions as well, etc.):

The White Notebook by the late 1947 Nobel Prize-winning French author Andre Gidé (Wikipedia), translated by Wade Baskin. This is the 1st part of his 1891 semi-autobiographical novel Les cahiers d'André Walter and comes with an extensive introductory note by the translator.

This first published work lays bare the early brilliance and philosophical conflicts of André Gide, a towering figure in French literature

Nobel Prize–winning writer André Gide lays bare his adolescent psyche in this early work, first conceived and published as part of his novel The Notebooks of André Walter, completed when he was just twenty years old. This profoundly personal work draws heavily on his religious upbringing and private journals to tell the story of a young man who, like the author, pines for his forbidden love, cousin Emmanuelle.

This unique portrait of Gide as a young man presents the passions and conflicts, temptations and anguish he would explore in maturity.

Bargain @ $1.99 for today only (Nov 25th) according to the newsletter from Open Road Media (couponable @ Kobo, should be available in all the standard Canada & US stores, may also be discounted in other regions, etc.):

The Times Are Never So Bad: A Novella and Eight Short Stories by the late Andre Dubus (Wikipedia, and father of the namesake writer of the Oprah Book Club Selection House of Sand and Fog), who's won a bunch of literary prizes and whom the Amazon bio-blurb says "is considered one of the greatest American short story writers of the twentieth century". This was originally published in 1983 from David R. Godine, which was apparently a Canadian imprint, according to the author's introduction.

Dubus’s fourth collection is a compassionate depiction of lives that are never as neat as his characters would have them be

In his fourth collection, Andre Dubus revisits the themes of infidelity and fallibility that he has been known to explore with such unflinching honesty and unfailing respect. Set in the New England landscape and populated by the men and women he has come to claim as his own, these stories are ultimately characterized by their extraordinary ordinariness. They are a reverent testament to the quiet sadness of humble lives.

Deeply moving and insightful, The Times Are Never So Bad is yet another masterful work by a writer whose Chekhovian sensibilities inform—yet never distract from—his own fully realized perspective.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Andre Dubus including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Bargain @ $2.99 for today only (Nov 26th) according to the newsletter from Open Road Media (couponable @ Kobo, should be available in all the standard stores, price good for US, geo-restricted as Random House still owns the rights in Canada and possibly other Commonwealth nations):

The Box Garden: A Novel by the late US-born Canadian-immigrant Pulitzer Prize & Governor General's Award-winner Carol Shields (Wikipedia), her 1977 literary fiction novel.

The story of a woman dancing on the edge of a difficult life

Ever since her husband left her—seemingly vanishing into thin air—Charleen Forrest has supported herself and her fifteen-year-old son on what she earns as an obscure poet and part-time gofer for an even more obscure scientific journal. But when her estranged mother remarries, prompting an unplanned reunion, Charleen finds herself moving out of her familiar existence.

A dazzling counterpoint to Shields’s debut novel, Small Ceremonies, imbued with her scathing wit and dead-on observations, The Box Garden is an unforgettable portrait of a woman who finds transformation—and happiness—where she least expects it.
