    Free (Kindle) Mission of the Brains by Sydney J. Bounds [SF Scientist Murder Mystery]

    Mission of the Brains by the late British author Sydney J. Bounds (ISFDB, Wikipedia, SFE) is his vintage mystery thriller with sfnal elements with apparently an advanced technological element to the crimes, centred around the whodunnit of the murder of scientists countrywide killed in a distinctive fashion, which seems to be linked to a touring fair with a mysterious mental act which may have sinister origins not of this Earth (or just be regular old trophy-taking serial killers, since neither ISFDB nor Wikipedia seem to consider this one of Bounds' dedicated sfnal works and I suspect the technothriller elements are being played up for marketing purposes), free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint.

    This was originally published in 1957 by Leicester as part of their Linford Mystery Library line.

    Currently free @ Amazon (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
    Across the country, scientists were being murdered. And the murders formed a strange and horrifying pattern—none of their dead bodies had heads! Furthermore, the trunk of each decapitated body was cauterized.

    Clearly the heads had been destroyed by some fantastic heat weapon.

    The importance of the scientists and the implications of unknown technology led to MI5 carrying out an urgent investigation.

    They had only one curious piece of evidence to go on, one that had first been brought to the attention of Scotland Yard by the eccentric scientist Dr. Fox: each time one of the murders had been committed, the Burkholder touring Fair had been in the vicinity.

    A mysterious and sinister act, known as The Brains are one of the star attractions of the fair, with their seemingly unlimited knowledge and disconcerting appearance.

    However, if they are to blame, what is their purpose, and what will become of Earth if they are to succeed?

    For the first time in ebook, Mission of the Brains is a thrilling science fiction novel from time tested, master of the genre, Sydney J. Bounds.

     
    Free (Kindle) The One-Eyed Moon by Marguerite Steen [1930s Spain Literary Drama]

    The One-Eyed Moon by the late British author Marguerite Steen (Wikipedia), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature whose works enjoyed a period of popularity in the 1930s and 1940s, is her vintage standalone literary fiction drama novel contemporary when written, but now a retro-historical set in Spain in the years prior to the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s, this one a mixed personal, family, and political drama as a man and his wife, their conflicts exacerbated by very different backgrounds, and their daughter play out their probable tragedy against the backdrop of the greater turmoil that will lead to war, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Odyssey imprint.

    This was originally published in 1935 by Victor Gollancz.

    Currently free @ Amazon (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
    In the turbulent years prior to the Spanish Civil War, Aurelio López lives precarious existence in the mountains of Granada…

    An attractive man with the heart of a poet, he is intensely attached to his ancestral home and its challenging, isolated surroundings.

    So when he meets and falls in love with Carmela, a woman of very different background, he brings her home as his bride.

    But Carmela never really fits in …

    A proud and industrious woman, Carmela’s commercial acumen and material ambitions immediately set her apart from the villagers for whom ‘mañana’ is a way of life.

    So, when Carmela goes into labour with her first child, suddenly and too soon, the locals do not hasten to help her.

    And Carmela’s husband, Aurelio, is somewhere else entirely.

    Although they both come close to death, Carmela and her daughter survive.

    Aurelio returns just in time to bestow a most unusual name upon their child.

    But somewhere in the years since her marriage, Carmela has become hard and embittered, and in time this will take its toll on the entire family.

    In contrast, Aurelio dotes on his daughter. But like all daughters, she has to grow up.

    And it is at that point that Aurelio’s past, present and future collide, with dreadful results.

    And as their full effects engulf the entire family, one person in particular must pay the ultimate price for the events of the past.

    An epic and passionate novel, The One-Eyed Moon gives the reader privileged insight into a little-known world, as it stood on the brink of momentous events both political and personal.

     
    Free (Kindle) Legionnare from Texas by Gordon Landsborough [Post-WWII Adventure]

    Legionnaire from Texas by the late British author Gordon Landsborough (Wikipedia, Fantastic Fiction), a prolific and pioneering multi-genre pulp fiction writer and publisher, is the 1st novel in his The Texas Legionnaire series of vintage retro-historical quasi-military action adventure thrillers starring a former French Foreign Legion member from Texas turned mercenary in the post-WWII years, this one taking place in French colonial North Africa wherein the protagonist, a misfit to the Legion who winds up going his own way, discovers a chance to bring a villainous ex-Nazi general to justice, as you do, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press.

    This was originally published in 1952 by Hamilton & Co using the pseudonym Mike M'Cracken. Normally we get Landsborough's pulp westerns from Pioneering Press, but if you've been enjoying those and like his writing, you might want to give this one a try.

    Currently free @ Amazon (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 Second World War is over but for a mercenary the fight never ends. The French Foreign Legion are tackling insurgency in colonial North Africa.

    Battling in the blazing heat of the Sahara against rebel Arab forces, there comes a time when men crack and desert.

    Rolling with the meanest fighting force in the world is no easy task: too much brutality; too much of everlasting sun and life in a desolate waste can break a man.

    The Texan deserted too. But not because he cracked.

    Le Legionnaire “Texas” had never belonged in the French Foreign Legion.

    He wasn’t an outcast, he wasn’t a failure and he’d never been a fool for a woman, so why had he joined the meanest fighting force on earth under a mysterious alias?

    In the sandy wilderness, the last thing Tex’ expected was to run into a beautiful, blue-eyed New York newspaper reporter crossing the desert disguised as an Arab woman.

    Although for different reasons, the two strangers will soon discover that they have a shared purpose in this blood-stained wasteland. After a long time searching, Captain Herman Sturmer is finally in their sights.

    By joining with his compatriot and leaving the Foreign Legion behind, Tex’ can finally achieve what he really came to the desert for and bring Captain Sturmer, the villainous ex-Nazi general, to justice.

    But in deserting he will be committing the legionnaires ultimate crime.

    Le Legionnaire Texas, along with a band of fellow renegade comrades, must contend with the partizans, ferocious bounty hunters who rove the Sahara, thirsty for the blood of traitors to the legion.
    In his struggle to survive Tex will finally come face-to-face with Stumer and a long-awaited chance to avenge.

    Legionnaire From Texas is the first in the Texan Legionnaire series.

     
    Mystery and Crime Haynes, Annie: The Abbey Court Murder. v1. 25 May 2017

    Annie Haynes: Born : 1864 Leicestershire, England: Lived : Bayswater, London, England (final):
    Died : 1929 Mar 30 Bayswater, London, England

    Excerpt
    ST. PETER'S was rapidly becoming the church for fashionable weddings; but even St. Peter's had seldom been the centre of a larger or more fashionable crowd than was assembling this warm April afternoon to see Lady Geraldine Summerhouse married to the man of her choice. There was the usual gathering of loiterers round the door and on the steps of the church; while the traffic in the street was impeded by the long line of private carriages and motors setting down guests.

    M96 big pen eraser not working (big pen option checked)

    Hello I have an Onyx M96 universe and I finally manage to upgrade the firmware thanks to that thread https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=255435 ( deleting the adb driver in windows device manager as pointed in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...=255435&page=3 and the japanese link, was crucial to have the device recognized by adb)

    the Problem I have now is that the big pen eraser is not working actually it writes instead of erasing... (indeed it was not working before because of the native firmware)

    I tried to uncheck the big ben option reboot check the big pen option and reboot as advised in some thread here but this did not changed anything. I tried various firmware from 2014 up to last 2017 version but still have the same problem

    The big pen itself is ok as I got it with an onyx Max and it is ok with this one

    Thanks in advance for your help

     
    Moon+ Reader - storage of ebooks

    Hello,

    I have a quick question I can't seem to find a quick answer to.

    I want to use Moon+ Reader as a reader on my Android phone. I have a number of non-DRM ebooks (epub) on a microsd card on my phone.

    I do not want to 'recopy' these books to my internal storage in some special Moon+ folder thereby making two versions of the files and taking up more space.

    UB Reader simply adds the books to my bookshelf wherever they are found, and does not try to recopy and store them anywhere. I like this, but would like some of the features Moon+ has that UB Reader does not.

    Does anyone know Moon+ default settings on this, or where to find them to change?

    Thank you.

    The seventh Amazon B&M bookstore opens

    Amazon’s new bookstore keeps shoppers on the Amazon website

    This is the first in New York City but there are two others planned there as well.

    Are Amazon bookstores the future of chain B&M bookstores? It seems to be working for Amazon so far.


    ETA-My bad; somehow I missed the other thread when looking to see if this had already been covered here despite the clear title. A mod can merge this post into the other thread, delete it or whatever's appropriate.

     
    You know you're addicted to writing when....

    I finished the first draft of my 4th Doc Vandal adventure at 1AM this morning.

    When I got up this morning, first thing I did was start planning the next one.

    Does anyone else do this, or am I addicted?
