Free e-books!

At Greyhart Press we are so proud of the quality of our stories that we want to give them away. Below are the download links to the free SF, fantasy, and horror e-books currently on promotion. Come back often as we will change this list frequently.

No strings attached. No registration. No payment details. No subscription. We simply think that you will enjoy our free stories so much that you will want to explore the rest of our range, and with our stories at around half the price of a cup of coffee we hope you feel you can indulge yourself in some quality indie fiction.

If you follow a link to a download site, please verify that the price is indeed free before purchasing. This is especially true for the Amazon Kindle Store because Amazon do not allow indie publishers, such as ourselves, to set a free list price. They do allow some Kindle books to be free, but only at their discretion.

Special Promotion #3  – Welcome Home, Janissary by Tim C. Taylor (SF short story)

This one is published by NewCon Press, not us, as a free story to promote their new anthology Further Conflicts. It’s also related to my novel, The Reality War. Since I’m the author and it fits with the Real Story Manifesto, I decided to share this with you.

“According to Taylor’s author biography, he is working on a novel connected to the story, which may account for the richness and depth of the worldbuilding and the care taken in characterization.” – Strange Horizons

When reinforcements replenish the depleted ranks of human slave soldiers, they bring with them a dangerous pride in Earth and dreams of mutiny against the unseen alien masters. But for Escandala, the unfolding nightmare is not war or mutiny, but her son. The aliens have altered him, driving them apart.

As for her son, he just wants to go home…

    They are currently available in mobi, epub, pdf, rtf, pdb, html, Javascript, lrf.

    They are :
    Mad Gods Volume I @:
    Mad Gods Volume II @:

    Are there sites where I can upload my work and make it available to all for free?
    If you have any information please contact me @:

      First of all, good luck with your Mad Gods books and your writing in general.

      I see you are publishing through Smashwords. That’s great; let Mark Coker’s excellent lot do the heavy lifting and convey the free price through the Premium Catalog distribution to further retailers such as Apple iTunes and Barnes & Noble.

      You might also list your free publications through for a boost in downloads (note the number of e’s in the URL)

      Wattpad is a good venue to list free books too.

      BTW: I took a while to reply because I had to fish your comment out of the ‘potential spam’ list. WordPress put it there because you have a lot of links. That’s a default WordPress setting. Just letting you know because other blogs might do the same.

      Best wishes,

  5. Sounds great! I think I might try this out. Thinking I’ll start with Waif.
