FREE FRIDAY BOOK
August 22, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays book selection is DEATH WARMED OVER — the first book in the Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. Series.
Single Dead Detective Seeks Clue
Ever since the Big Uneasy unleashed vampires, werewolves, and other undead denizens on the world, it’s been hell being a detective — especially for zombie P.I. Dan Chambeaux. Taking on the creepiest of cases in the Unnatural Quarter with a human lawyer for a partner and a ghost for a girlfriend, Chambeaux redefines “dead on arrival.” But just because he was murdered doesn’t mean he’d leave his clients in the lurch. Besides, zombies are so good at lurching.
Now he’s back from the dead and back in business — with a caseload that’s downright unnatural. A resurrected mummy is suing the museum that put him on display. Two witches, victims of a curse gone terribly wrong, seek restitution from a publisher for not using “spell check” on its magical tomes. And he’s got to figure out a very personal question — who killed him?

FREE FRIDAYS AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION
Kevin J. Anderson, the author of this week’s Free Fridays book selection, recommends…
“Anne Serling’s memoir, AS I KNEW HIM, about her father Rod Serling is a must-read for fans of The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery. It’s a beautiful portrait that reveals the real, fascinating person behind the legendary icon who graced TV screens for generations. As a wide-eyed, imaginative young kid in a small town in Wisconsin, I visited countless amazing worlds with Rod Serling; his otherworldly journeys helped me see how to become a writer. Now, Anne Serling takes you on another fantastic voyage… this time it’s into his home and family.”
