In the free and untamed Wild West, love might blossom in the most unexpected place.…
When the man from the orphanage mistakes Chase Logan for Jessie Strong’s husband, the least Chase can do is help Jessie adopt the child she so desperately wants, the little girl who will be Jessie’s only family in the Wyoming wilderness. Three days are all she asks. Three days pretending to love a woman who is unlike any he has ever known.…
Jessie knows it’s chivalry, plain and simple, that spurs Chase Logan to come to her rescue the day little Sarah arrives at her door. A man like him isn’t made for settling down; he is as wild as the land he roams. She should know better than to let down her guard, to allow herself to long for a family and a life with someone she hardly knows. And yet she dares to hope that maybe, just maybe, Chase Logan is the man destined to make all of her dreams come true.

Disenchanted (Land of Dis) by Robert Kroese
- Normally: $3.99
- Genre(s): fantasy, magic, humor, adventure
King Boric the Implacable knows death comes to all great warriors. He just didn’t expect it to be so damn fickle.
Felled by an assassin’s blade, he should be spending eternity carousing in the Hall of Avandoor. Instead, his spirit is bound to his decaying body by the enchanted sword of Brakslaagt. And unless he can hunt down the mysterious Lord Brand, who gave him the weapon so long ago, he is cursed to wander the earth forever as an undead wraith.
So begins Boric’s extraordinary journey across the Six Kingdoms of Dis as a walking corpse who wants nothing more than to be disenchanted and left in peace. His is not an easy quest: along the way he is burned, riddled with arrows, and nearly blown to bits. But when he finally comes face-to-face with Lord Brand, Boric will discover that nothing - in life, in death, or in between - is exactly what it seems.

The Jane Austin MEGAPACK™
Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature. Her realism, biting irony and social commentary as well as her acclaimed plots have gained her historical importance among scholars and critics. Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to her development as a professional writer. From her teenage years into her thirties she experimented with various literary forms, including an epistolary novel (which she then abandoned), wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1815), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.
Austen's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century realism. Her plots, though fundamentally comic, highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her works, though usually popular, were first published anonymously and brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime, but the publication in 1869 of her nephew’s A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced her to a wider public, and by the 1940s she had become widely accepted in academia as a great English writer. The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship and the emergence of a Janeite fan culture.

Operation Frühlingserwachen (‘Spring Awakening’) was the Eastern Front counterpart to the Battle of the Bulge; a powerful late-war counteroffensive dreamed up by Hitler and enacted by the Waffen-SS. Launched from the German lines around Lake Balaton, some 70km (43 miles) west of Budapest, on 6 March 1945, the operation was intended to drive the Red Army back across the Danube and reclaim the Hungarian capital.
Even more so than its western counterpart, Operation Spring Awakening was doomed from the outset. The German units involved in the offensive were demoralized and understrength, the terrain did not favor them, and, worst of all, the Soviets knew they were coming. What followed was in many ways a re-enactment of the battle of Kursk with late-war weaponry – the advancing Germans faced line after line of minefields, anti-tank guns, and dug in infantry. That the offensive made any progress at all is testament to the impressive fighting qualities of Sepp Dietrich’s Sixth SS Panzer Army.
Illustrated with color maps and contemporary photographs, Waffen-SS: Hungary ’45 tells the story of the last great German offensive of the war. It describes the brutal fighting around Lake Balaton and the Sarviz Canal as well as the desperate final thrust of I SS Panzer Corps that came close to breaking through the Red Army’s lines. It also covers the overwhelming Soviet counteroffensive, which saw the Sixth SS Panzer Army driven all the way back to Vienna in a matter of weeks.

The H.B. Fyfe MINIPACK™
Horace B. Fyfe (1918-1997) was an engineer by trade and a popular science fiction writer. He published extensively in SF magazines from his first appearance in Astounding in February 1940 until his last publication in Analog in January 1967. Sadly, Alzheimer’s cut short his career, but his family stepped in to save many of his files, including more than 90 unpublished stories and an unpublished historical novel.
Most of his unpublished works is either juvenilia or attempts to break into other fields, such as suspense or romance, that misfired. But a few are lost gems, and we will shortly have a third collection of his stories published, The 24th Golden Age of Science Fiction MEGAPACK™: H.B. Fyfe (vol. 3) which will include two previously unpublished SF tales. And our next ghost story MEGAPACK™ will have a ghost story that would have been right at home in the original Weird Tales.

Encyclical Letter Laudato Si' of the Holy Father Francis: On Care for Our Common Home
The complete text of Pope Francis' encyclical letter on climate change and inequality.
"Nothing in this world is indifferent to us."
"More than fifty years ago, with the world teetering on the brink of nuclear crisis, Pope Saint John XXIII wrote an Encyclical which not only rejected war but offered a proposal for peace. He addressed his message Pacem in Terris to the entire 'Catholic world' and indeed 'to all men and women of good will'. Now, faced as we are with global environmental deterioration, I wish to address every person living on this planet. In my Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, I wrote to all the members of the Church with the aim of encouraging ongoing missionary renewal. In this Encyclical, I would like to enter into dialogue with all people about our common home."
- Pope Francis
