    Every so often I make my Kindle books free.

    They’re free through 10/3. These are a couple that aren’t so bad. Both are set in the early 1960s.

    (As an aside, I’m on my third–but probably not my last–pseudonym, so you’ll see these books on the web under another author name.)

      2. Sure. Hope you don't hate 'em! I'm not politically correct. People weren't in

      1961. Even though I could pretend shadow puppets were a big fad in 1961, I couldn’t stop my characters from calling women “girls,” etc.

    4. Thank you

    I like the breezy style. It reminds me of the great SF of the 50s and 60s. Did you ever read the one about the guy who had the contract to sell the United Nations worn out equipment, and what not (it’s the what not that becomes important)? And then there was Gomez*. I’m reminded of great stories like those.

    I just googled and I found that it’s a Cyril M. Kornbluth story. I’d forgotten that, but I like it.
