Thumbs up Free (Kindle) The Man Who Sold the Earth by John Russell Fearn [Sci-Fi Collection]

The Man Who Sold the Earth by the late British author John Russell Fearn (ISFDB, Wikipedia, SFE), edited by British editor Philip Harbottle (ISFDB, SFE), is a collection of his vintage science fiction short stories with a new introduction by Harbottle, mostly with themes of space or transdimensional travel, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint.

These seven stories were mostly originally published in the 1940s in various magazines, but a few appear to have been posthumous collaborations with his estate, which appeared from the 1970s onwards.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
The Man Who Sold the Earth is a collection of short science fiction stories by the masterful John Russell Fearn.

The Man Who Sold the Earth features Jacob Mastervil, a man who controlled the world through money. His iron grip around the world is ruled by a cold, disinterested view of humanity, no love for any fellow human, and no seeming moral compass. Bruce Calthorp is the man's secretary, and is increasingly uneasy at Mastervil's moves. However, standing up to Mastervil leads to peril...

The Ghost Sun, with Sydney J. Bounds, follows the Elders of the Tormah as they visit the Ghost Sun and encounter people from Terra, and is an exploration of man's travels through space from the perspective of another species. A warning and an encounter will change fates...

Earth Asunder tells a tale of an asteroid threatening a future Earth controlled by large regional governments. Safety lies underground, and the technology to live there is spearheaded by two scientists. However, when their popularity threatens the power of a world leader, he makes a move to split the earth asunder...

A Matter of Vibration, with Sydney J. Bounds, is about a transdimensional world and a trapped woman. The cold dimension starts to encroach on ours as Will Gregory tries to pull his childhood friend back, but the vibrations grow stronger...

The Man Who Bought Mars is a tale of intrigue, stepping through time, and the greed of corporations. Can Hal Bailey take back what is his? Will the man who bought Mars defeat those who would steal it from him?

Eclipse Bears Witness is about Evelyn Glendon, a woman desperate to bring her father home - a brilliant man who has discovered secret cities on the Moon. A space exploration to measure and transmit images of the latest solar eclipse is her last chance, but she is denied entry to the ship. Howard Dale, lead scientist of the expedition, is sympathetic, but has to fall in line with corporate and the community. Will she be able to get her father back and prove his brilliance?

After the Atom tells of atomic war and one scientist's last ditch attempt to find a way to prevent this in the future with an apprentice. When an unexpected atomic blast allows them to visit the future, they find the consequences of man's actions.
