Free (Kindle) Sierra Marshal by John Glasby [Recursive Framing Catspaw Western]

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 23:42:54 GMT

*Sierra Marshal* by the late British author John Glasby (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?6996), Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Glasby), obituary at The Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/8766379/John-Glasby.html)) is his vintage standalone historical western action adventure novel, this one involving an apparently upstanding citizen calling in a federal marshal to turn in a pesky neighbour supposedly guilty of committing murder and armed robbery, as you do, only to find his attempted catspaw suspicious of his attempted frame and therefore in need of a good framing himself to get him out of the way, too, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Pioneering imprint. This was originally published in 1964 by Robert Hale using the pseudonym Chuck Adams and was later reprinted by Robert Hale as part of their Black Horse Western line using the pseudonym Morgan Shaw. Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Sierra-Marshal-John-Glasby-ebook/dp/B06Y5X8SNG/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* Sometimes you have to take the law into your own hands… Cal Marsden, owner of the biggest spread in the territory, knew that Victor Gantry, his nearest neighbour, was a wanted man. He sent for Steve Enders, a federal marshal, to come into the town of Anderson and arrest Gantry on a charge of murder and armed robbery. On the face of things, Marsden’s actions showed a proper regard for law and order, but when Enders fell victim to a violent hold-up on his journey into Anderson, his suspicions were raised. After questioning the local sheriff and Victor Gantry himself, it was soon apparent that Marsden had other reasons for wanting to see Gantry behind bars. Discovering that Enders not only refused to arrest Gantry without further evidence, but also that the marshal was showing an unhealthy interest in his own activities, Marsden aimed to frame the lawman himself. With his henchmen at his command, a drunken saloon brawl escalated into a murder charge with Enders caught in the middle. But Enders was no stranger to this kind of challenge and Marsden soon discovered that he had caught a wildcat by the tail, for the lawman knew a few tricks himself which finally forced a bloody showdown…

*Swords Against Darkness* credited as by the late Robert E. Howard (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?822), Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Howard), SFE (http://www.sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/howard_robert_e)), creator of the classic character Conan the Barbarian and considered the founder of sword & sorcery, and edited by the late Andrew J. Offutt (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?264), Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_J._Offutt), SFE (http://www.sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/offutt_andrew_j)) is the vintage 1st volume in the Swords Against Darkness anthology series (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swords_Against_Darkness)) of original sword & sorcery adventure tales in the classic pulp vein of Robert E. Howard, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint. This was originally published in 1974 by Robert Hale, according to the frontmatter credits which are possibly slightly erroneous, since both ISFDB and Wikipedia seem to think these originally appeared in 1977 from Kensington's Zebra imprint, attributed to Offutt only, though it does contain one of Howard's own classic vintage stories, introduced by Offutt. It looks like a pretty nice presentation, with each story prefaced by an introduction, and contributors including notable authors such as SFWA Grand Master Poul Anderson, frequent British Fantasy Award horror awardee Ramsey Campbell, popular MilSF author David Drake, and more. :2thumbsup Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Swords-Against-Darkness-Robert-Howard-ebook/dp/B072QY1WNG/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* Swords Against Darkness is a collection of short stories in the tradition of Robert E. Howard... Robert E. Howard provides weird surprises in a tale of a Spanish opportunist, a “lost” Aztec city, and a centuries-old mage — in what may be the last story REH ever wrote... The goddess of Chance gambles with a barbarian swordsman — for his life... The Empire of Rome is threatened with disaster by a barbaric sorcerer who raises mindless killers for the earth itself... The last survivor of Atlantis is called upon to do battle against a human-eating creature only he can brave — to save a race of giants... Alongside other all-new tales of menace, high adventure and derring-do, written especially for this volume! This excellent showcase for heroic fantasy fiction is certainly a must read for any fan of sword and sorcery.

Free (Kindle) London: A Concise History [Vintage City Building & Inhabitants History]

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 18:47:33 GMT

*London: A Concise History: From the Romans to the Twentieth Century* by the late British author Geoffrey Trease (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Trease)), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature who was known for his meticulous historical research and contributions to children's literature, is his vintage place history of England's eponymous capital city, from its earliest days as a Roman town, and continuing construction and expansion onward through the centuries to modern times (only as of WWII though, according to a customer review), touching upon its various distinguishing attractions and notable inhabitants, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press. This was originally published in 1975 by Thames and Hudson. Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/London-Concise-History-Geoffrey-Trease-ebook/dp/B01K4NXNRY/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* Before the Romans crossed the Thames in AD 43 London was barely a cluster of mud huts. With a bridge and a radiating network of roads, the Romans began creating Londinium. It grew and developed and spread. From then on the city took on many forms. The Anglo-Saxon Lundeneric The London Town of Mayor Walworth and Wat Tyler Dunbar’s ‘flower of cities all’ Spenser’s ‘most kindly nurse’. To Dr Johnson, London had ‘all that life can afford’ Whilst Shelley thought Hell ‘a city much like London’. It is an enduringly fascinating story, with ‘a cast of thousands’: Fitzstephen, friend of Thomas à Becket, to whom ‘the only inconvenience of London is the immoderate drinking of foolish persons’; Burbage the actor-manager and his fellow player Will Shakespeare; clever, amorous Samuel Pepys; Boswell, whose London Journal is a mine of good quotes; the Prince Regent and John Nash who designed Regent’s Park; and many, many more. The story is taken to the lurid, heroic days and nights of the Blitz, the Second Fire of London, and the period of reconstruction that followed. Geoffrey Trease’s knowledge of London is extensive and peculiar. Many a native Londoner will find unexpected things in this survey of London’s rich and varied past.



Free (Kindle) Three Great Impresarios [19th-20th C Opera Company Founders Biography]

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 18:37:44 GMT

*Three Great Impresarios: Emperors of Song* by British author Freddie Stockdale (Wikipedia (https://www.fantasticfiction.com/s/freddie-stockdale/)), the founder of a small opera touring company as well as a pseudonymous crime novelist, is his historical musical arts figure biography, centred around three colourful impresarios—private businessmen who established opera companies and employed the great stars of the day—during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press. This was originally published in 1998 by John Murray. Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Three-Great-Impresarios-Emperors-Song-ebook/dp/B01BYK2R3C/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* Great impresarios are an extinct breed. Grand Opera today is presented either by the state or by major corporate trusts. Yet, in the Golden Age of Verdi and Puccini, Wagner and Richard Strauss, opera in Britain and the United States was almost exclusively the preserve of individual private businessmen — the impresarios — who made (and lost) fortunes by personallv employing the great stars of the day. The king of bombast was Colonel James Mapleson, child-star, wiliest of agents, then grandest and finally most unlucky of showmen. Obsession ruined Oscar Hammerstein I. not once, not twice but three times bankrupted by his determination to conquer Broadway. Great wealth protected John Christie, soldier, schoolmaster and heir to Glyndebourne Manor and estates, when his love for his wife led to his building up the largest private opera festival since Bayreuth. Patti and Melba, Caruso and Tetrazzini — those legendary super-egos, with their jewels, parrots, castles and private investment accounts at Rothschilds — were the raw material these enterprising men tried to turn to gold. This book, concentrating on the period 1860-1939, rediscovers their spectacular successes, and their even more spectacular disasters.



Free (Kindle) Goughie: The Life of General Sir Hubert Gough [WWI Military Biography]

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 18:28:55 GMT

*Goughie: The Life of General Sir Hubert Gough* by the late British author Anthony Farrar-Hockley (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Farrar-Hockley), obituary at The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/news/2006/mar/15/guardianobituaries.military)), a distinguished British Army general turned military historian, is his historical military figure biography, about the titular British Army general (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubert_Gough)) who played a prominent role in a number of important battles during World War I but later fell prey to controversy, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press. This was originally published in 1975 by Hart-Davies, MacGibbon Ltd. Currently free @ Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Goughie-Anthony-Farrar-Hockley-ebook/dp/B01IHRTP4E/) (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program) *Description* The Generals of the First World War have generated much debate and controversy. General Sir Hubert Gough is no exception. Some thought him callous, a butcher among generals, while many believed him unusually considerate, thoughtful of his soldiers within the demands of war. First gazetted in 1889, Gough’s military career spans the bridge between the Imperial conflicts of late-Victorian rule and the modern warfare ushered in by the twentieth century. From India to South Africa his early career marked him for greatness, yet in Ireland the so-called “officers’ mutiny” of March 1914 almost brought it to an end. Within months of the incident war was declared, and on the Western Front Gough’s talents saw his rapid rise to the head of Fifth Army, the youngest general in the British Army. However, in spring 1918 he became one of the war’s political casualties, a scapegoat for a government who wished to avoid admitting the Army had been deprived of resources. Despite some less successful forays into business and politics in the following years, Gough was a soldier’s soldier, working for the welfare of the soldiers he had commanded. Written by an acclaimed military historian, ‘Goughie’ is the remarkable story of General Sir Hubert Gough’s long and adventurous life, filled with adversity, loss and triumph, and is as impressive as it is moving.

Jarik and his warrior-woman companion Jilain soon find themselves caught in the middle of a bloody struggle. On the one side, there are the Iron Lords who desperately long for the Lady of the Snowmist's demise and will stop at nothing to destroy her. The other side is that of the Lady of the Snowmist, who may not be as evil as the Iron Lords claim she is. However, once The Lady of the Snowmist freed Jarik of his god-bonds, she did not anticipate the boundless rage of Jarik’s god-sword... nor which side he will support. Will he become a friend or a foe of the mystical sorceress? Soon he and Jilain will discover that the wrong decision could cost them their lives... Andrew J. Ouffutt’s The Lady of the Snowmist is an exciting fantasy novel. The Lady of the Snowmist is the third instalment of War of the Gods on Earth series.
