Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time.
I have decided to list books for no more than one day to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.I have also decided to consolidate to a single post, instead of sometimes splitting them up by subject matter.

"The Prodigal Hour, the audacious, genre-bending novel by Will Entrekin, is a Rubik's Cube of delights. Equal parts sci-fi, thriller, coming-of-age, and love story, the novel hurtles readers along Chance Sowin's intriguingly unpredictable journey--forward, backward, and inward. A thrilling head rush of a book."
-Elizabeth Eslami, author of Bone Worship: A Novel
"Chance Sowin hoped only for a new beginning."
On October 31st, 2001, six weeks after escaping the World Trade Center attacks, Chance Sowin moves back home, hoping for familiarity and security. Instead, he interrupts a burglary during which his father, Dennis, is shot and killed.
What begins as a homicide investigation escalates when the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrives. Where he hoped for solutions, Chance finds only more questions: who killed his father, and why? Was his father--a physicist at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study--working on dangerous research? Why did Dennis build a secret laboratory in his basement?
Chance might not know the answers, but Cassie Lackesis, Dennis' research assistant, thinks she does. She isn't certain Dennis discovered a way to time travel, but she knows who told her: Chance.
Together with Cassie, Chance will go on a journey across time and space that will challenge his every notion of ideas like "right" and "good." One young man's desire to make a difference will become, instead, a race against time as he tries to prevent forces he could never understand from not just destroying the universe but rendering it nonexistent.
When every action has a reaction, every force its counter, Chance will find that the truest measure of his character is not what he wants but what he will do when the prodigal hour returns.
The very first issue of MAD! Including classic spoofs of multiple comic book genres--sci-fi ("Blobs!"), horror ("Hoohah!"), crime ("Ganefs!") and westerns ("Varmint!").
(Revised 2nd Edition)
Dr. Holmes was thoroughly bored with his psychiatric profession until he met Hastelloy. The man is named after a durable metal capable of surviving under high-stress service where more common materials fail; ironic considering he’s an insane asylum patient.
Hastelloy is convinced he’s locked in a battle for the survival of mankind with the mysterious species Alpha. This conflict supposedly began when Hastelloy and his alien crew crashed on Earth during the time of ancient Egypt. Dr. Holmes listens with understandable skepticism to the patient’s story about his involvement with building the Great Pyramid and Sphinx, bringing about the rise of Pharaohs, and even assisting Moses with the slave exodus to the Promised Land. Is Hastelloy crazy, or is it crazy to ignore him?
Meanwhile, a group of archeologists make new discoveries in the Giza plateau. While investigating previously unknown chambers found inside the Great Pyramid and Sphinx they come face to face with elements intent on preserving those secrets. Egypt’s recorded history, and Hastelloy’s true mental state, are drawn into question by what they find.
All the while a National Security Agent grapples with NASA amid the launch of a new deep space probe capable of broadcasting a message that will be heard by others. Is this threat a product of NSA paranoia or an attempt by alien influences on Earth to phone home? Both sides will stop at nothing to further their cause.
Mankind's past present and future are revealed in this gripping thriller that does not let go for a single page, and has enough twists and turns to test even the most sturdy safety harness. The Origins of all will be revealed.
