Free Fantasy and Science Fiction Novels

| Posted in Free Fiction |

3

I had grand plans to get another short story up here for Christmas, but that didn’t happen. I’ve got something else though, a list of free fantasy and science fiction novels from some of my fellow authors that you can check out over the holidays (or after). I’ll leave this list up indefinitely. Some of these may only be free for the next few weeks, but a lot of these are always free.

The ones in the first list are free for anyone and available in many stores. The ones in the second list are on Amazon only and are in Kindle Unlimited so they’re free if you have a subscription there.

There’s a mix of fantasy, science fiction, and some scifi/fantasy romance thrown in for good measure. I hope you’ll find something of interest!

Completely Free for Anyone Books
