It’s July, and the world is your oyster. Thanks to the Smashwords Summer Sale, my entire stock of e-books is discounted! Choose from this colorful selection, starting with a free copy of the first volume of The Stolen Future trilogy:

The Invisible CityFREE: Journey nearly 1,000,000 years into the future to face re-created dinosaurs, subterranean mutants, genetically-engineered human-animal hybrids, and Earth’s alien overlords, as you trek across the planet in search of love, adventure, and a way home.

The Secret City. Following the events of The Invisible City, Keryl Clee returns to the future to find his love–but has he returned to the same place? The same time? Condemned for a crime he did not commit, Clee must fight enemies both human and inhuman as he sets out to find the Lady Maire–and discovers he must defend a world that wants him dead against a long-lost enemy that wants to conquer and to kill!

The Cosmic City. His enemies beaten back, but not beaten, Clee receives a message from the ancient past that sets him on his strangest voyage yet, struggling to stop a menace that can destroy time and space while betrayed by his allies, and his closest friends embark on a dangerous quest to find the astonishing secret that could save the world–or end it.

And if science fiction isn’t your thing…

The Choking Rain. In the days of the Great Depression, a mysterious and terrifying invisible murder weapon is killing men on the streets of Los Angeles in broad daylight, Can an ex-fighter pilot, a copy, and a colorful band of amateur adventurers save the city–and perhaps the nation–from The Choking Rain? (Book two in the series will be published in the fall.)

Once a Knight, A Tale of the Daze of Chivalry. Invisible killers too grim for you? Up for a little fun? How about a trip to the Dark (or perhaps dim) Ages? When Bruce Legume, heir-apparent to the mantle of the legendary White Samurai, is exiled from Japan to Europe on a technicality, he finds himself in the company of his long-lost brother Stephen, a loving soul who promises to help Bruce adjust to his new home (for a small fee). When that “adjustment” turns out to include assassins, pirates, a love-crazy princess, and an army of fashion-obsessed Amazons known as “Valleykyries,” will Stephen run? Will Bruce conquer? Will there be a sequel?

How to Know if Your Stockbroker is Ripping You Off (and What You Can Do about It). If fiction’s not your bag, this is a must for the informed investor–particularly if you are a retiree. Every year, it is estimated that up to 10% of all investors are mistreated by their stockbrokers (mostly seniors), and only one in 10 even realizes he’s being taken. Are you? Would you know if you were? This booklet, written in non-legalese plain English and based on over thirty years of dealing with dirty brokers, could save you tens of thousands of dollars today.

All of these fine books are offered at 25% off of list price (except for The Invisible City) for the month of July. What are you waiting for? Your summer reading list awaits!

Smashwords is sponsoring “Read an Ebook Week” in an attempt to promote ebooks to readers with discount coupons, and my Depression-era pulp thriller The Choking Rain is participating with a 50% coupon.

Los Angeles, 1932. Six months before the Olympic Games are to bring relief to a Depression-battered city, men are falling dead in the rain-swept streets, their necks broken as if by an invisible noose. Pulled into a shadowy, rain-slick storm of murder and kidnapping, an ex-fighter pilot, a cop, a couple of football players-turned scientist, and a Kewpie-doll blonde with a black belt join forces to track down the terror plotters and stop their deadly spree. But when tragedy strikes the group, the survivors must brave one of the last untamed places on Earth to learn the secret of the Invisible Death–a secret designed to destroy America’s greatest cities, one by one…

The promotion ends on March 11.
