          Death's Heretic Audiobook | James L. Sutter | Audible.com - Freebie until Feb. 16

          Death's Heretic Audiobook

          Death's Heretic


          Publisher's Summary

          Nobody cheats death. A warrior haunted by his past, Salim Ghadafar serves as a problem-solver for a church he hates, bound by the goddess of death to hunt down those who would rob her of her due. Such is the case in the desert nation of Thuvia, where a powerful merchant on the verge of achieving eternal youth via a magical elixir is mysteriously murdered, his soul kidnapped somewhere along its path to the afterlife. The only clue is a magical ransom note, offering to trade the merchant's successful resurrection for his dose of the fabled potion. But who would have the power to steal a soul from the boneyard of Death herself?


          Enter Salim, whose keen mind and contacts throughout the multiverse should make solving this mystery a cinch. There's only one problem: The investigation is being financed by Neila Anvanory, the dead merchant's stubborn and aristocratic daughter. And she wants to go with him. Along with his uninvited passenger, Salim must unravel a web of intrigue that will lead them far from the blistering sands of Thuvia on a grand tour of the Outer Planes, where devils and angels rub shoulders with fey lords and mechanical men, and nothing is as it seems....


          Death's Heretic is FREE until February 16, 2016.

            Instead of offering a preselected freebie today, Wildside Press is offering the following. (I plan to use the coupon to buy a megapack.)

            Australia Day -- the National Day of Australia -- is coming up (January 26). It marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Philip. Kobo has selected two of our ebooks for special promotion that day, Australian James Doig's horror anthology AUSTRALIAN GOTHIC (which will be priced at AU $.99 for the duration of the promotion) and New Zealander Lyn McConchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES: BEASTLY MYSTERIES, which will be priced at AU $2.49. If you live in Australia or New Zealand, check out the Kobo site over the nest week for these and other great deals.


            Tuesday is Free Ebook Day at Wildside Press. We usually do a freebie on the web site (last week's was "The Teacher from Mars," by Eando Binder; the week before was a Fritz Leiber short story collection.) Sorry, there won't be a specific freebie today -- you'll just have to go to our web site and pick one out for yourself. Use coupon code FN0T1AZ729293 to take 99 cents off your order of 99 cents or more. One use per customer, please! Coupon expires tomorrow.


            Feel free to buy some extra books or ebooks while you're there. (That's what keeps the freebies free, after all!) And if you sign up for an account at wildsidepress.com, you will be able to download the ebook as many times as necessary in future years using the same link in your email or your store account. Just another great feature for registered users.


            Want print books? Use either of our January coupon codes (which expire January 31, 2016):

            5OFF25 to save (obviously!) $5 off a purchase of $25

              Under the onslaught of supernatural evil, the acts of good people can seem insignificant, but a courageous few stand apart. These brave men and women stand up to the darkness, stare it right in the eye, and give it the finger. These are the stories of those who rage against the night, stories of triumph, sacrifice, and bravery in the face of overwhelming evil.


              Rage Against the Night features the megastars of dark fantasy and horror—including Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Peter Straub, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, F. Paul Wilson, Jonathan Maberry, Scott Nicholson, Nancy Holder, Sarah Langan, and many, many more.

                      Beginning at Moses: A Guide to Finding Christ in the Old Testament Kindle Edition

                      by Michael P. V. Barrett

                      • Genre(s): Non-fiction / Religion & Spirituality > Christian Books & Bibles > Christian Living > Spiritual Growth
                      • Kindle list price: $.99


                        Although not in every line and perhaps not on every page, the message of Christ overshadows the entire Old Testament. Finding Christ is the key that both unlocks and locks in the message of the whole Word of God. Jesus Christ is God's final, perfect, incomparable Word. Beginning at Moses seeks to follow the example of Christ Himself Who, "beginning at Moses and all the prophets," expounded from all the Scripture the things concerning Himself.

                        Charles Dickens’s sentimental classic about little Nell and her grandfather—a tale that has moved readers for generations

                      Little Nell Trent, as beautiful as she is virtuous, lives with her grandfather in his curiosity shop. The only ambition of Nell’s loving caretaker is to provide the young girl with a better life. But after attempting to gamble his way out of poverty, the old man finds himself indebted to the wicked and deformed moneylender Daniel Quilp. Thrust into a life of begging on the street, Nell and her grandfather are pursued by villains at every turn—but they never lose the compassion and generosity in their hearts.

                      With a diverse cast of characters that ranges from scoundrels and vagrants to the truly pure of heart, The Old Curiosity Shop shows Dickens at his best.

                        I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all worldviews because it is the most reasonable. The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style. A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to prior beliefs of doubters and skeptics.

                          “In Outside the Gates of Eden Peter Hales offers a stunning reinterpretation of US cultural history after 1945. It explores the shadows and promises of a nuclear world marked by excessive dreams and paranoia, simulated perfection and scenarios of disaster.”—David E. Nye



                          Exhilaration and anxiety, the yearning for community and the quest for identity: these shared, contradictory feelings course through Outside the Gates of Eden, Peter Bacon Hales’s ambitious and intoxicating new history of America from the atomic age to the virtual age.


                          Born under the shadow of the bomb, with little security but the cold comfort of duck-and-cover, the postwar generations lived through—and led—some of the most momentous changes in all of American history. Hales explores those decades through perceptive accounts of a succession of resonant moments, spaces, and artifacts of everyday life—drawing unexpected connections and tracing the intertwined undercurrents of promise and peril. From sharp analyses of newsreels of the first atomic bomb tests and the invention of a new ideal American life in Levittown; from the music emerging from the Brill Building and the Beach Boys, and a brilliant account of Bob Dylan’s transformations; from the painful failures of communes and the breathtaking utopian potential of the early days of the digital age, Hales reveals a nation, and a dream, in transition, as a new generation began to make its mark on the world it was inheriting.


                          Full of richly drawn set-pieces and countless stories of unforgettable moments, Outside the Gates of Eden is the most comprehensive account yet of the baby boomers, their parents, and their children, as seen through the places they built, the music and movies and shows they loved, and the battles they fought to define their nation, their culture, and their place in what remains a fragile and dangerous world.

                              Blane Kirk is a Navy SEAL-turned-attorney with old money and an even older pedigree. High powered and aggressive, he plays the field, changing women as often as he changes his ties—but he’s had no complaints so far. He has only two rules: don’t date employees, and don’t get emotionally involved. These are rules he can easily live by…until his runner, an employee in his law firm named Kathleen Turner, does an unexpected face-plant into his lap.

                            Kathleen’s too young and innocent for Blane, and much too vulnerable. After her friend is murdered, Blane knows she could be next—and he knows that keeping her alive means keeping her close to him. Kathleen’s like no woman he’s ever met, and protecting her could be the one thing to change his life forever. He may be able to keep her safe from the killer…but can he keep her safe from himself?

                            Blane’s Turn is a companion novel to No Turning Back, Book One in The Kathleen Turner Series.

                            Revised edition: This edition of Blane's Turn includes editorial revisions.
                            I'd been debating whether to buy Beginning at Moses: A Guide to Finding Christ in the Old Testament or the Leighann Dobbs Cozy Mystery Collection, and figured I had a month to decide. Snooze, you lose. I wonder what would have happened after Amazon switched the lineup, if I'd bought either of those titles while it was still a Kindle for Samsung selection.
