Two Free SF Books
This is a free book alert courtesy of Krakatoa at AoSHQ. His brother has written a Science Fiction series, which he describes as
a little something for those looking for sweet literary payback against the overwhelming tide of PC, post-modern, post-morality, ham-handed political manifestos regularly generated by today's publishing houses. I bring you a non-PC, post-idiocracy, double-fisted mud-in-the-collective's-eye romp.
The first book is Firing of the Crucible and it is FREE until Saturday, August 20. Here's an excerpt from the blurb:
Your ship was the only one to survive The Last Battle. The High Court is in exile. All other planets and races of your fallen Empire lie at the mercy of ravenous hoards. Your last hope is a planet that was sealed away from the rest of the universe and used to try and breed the ultimate warrior. A project started over two hundred thousand years ago...
You must get there without the enemy following you.
Going there without direct permission from the Emperor means your mind will will wiped. Or you will be executed. Or both.
There is also the slight problem that the project was terminated because the resultant race was too violent, too uncontrollable, with too much of a chance of killing their handlers instead of their targets.
The planet's name in the records means "terrifying experiment". The natives just call it Earth.
Also free during this period is his novella Attila the Runner: Episode 1: Awakening. Here's the blurb for this short read:
At birth Attila was saddled with a name he could never live up to. At age 7 he was forced into a body he could never excel in. At age 14 he chose to commit actions he could never atone for. Unfortunately, much like his namesake, the rules and expectations of others weren't something he gave much attention to. Unfortunately for those others who wanted to force them on him that is. Especially since at age 21, he got the ultimate "reset". If only he can find the "On button" for all his new abilities.
