Friday Fiction Freebies

Welcome to another late edition of Friday Fiction Freebies.

I actually picked this first one because it had ‘unicorn’ in the title. I used to love unicorns when I was a kid. However, if ever pressed to choose a magical breed of horse, I would have to go with Pegasus. They can fly, after all.

Unicorn Bait, by SA Hunter

From Amazon: “Naomi accidentally goes to another planet thanks to a unicorn horn. Unfortunately, the horn doesn't come with her. She doesn't know how to get home, but that's not her biggest problem. That would be her brand new husband, and he's kind of scary. Her only hope is a crazy witch who knows something about catching unicorns. Which would be fine and dandy except, it's the crazy witch who introduced her to her husband. And then RAN OFF. She's going to get her for that.
Unicorn Bait is a fun romp through a magical world filled with adventure, humor, and a little naughtiness.”

I downloaded this next one for my Kindle. I feel I must read it, but I’m also trying to find time to read Don Quixote (again). AAAAAAGH! Not enough reading time!!!

Also the cover image in the Wikipedia entry for the book is A-Maz-Ing. Seriously. If I were one of those fancy people with a real office, I would get it blown up and framed and then hang it on the wall.

A Princess of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs

From Wikipedia: “A Princess of Mars is a science fiction novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first of his Barsoom series. It is also Burroughs' first novel, predating his famous Tarzan series. Full of swordplay and daring feats, the novel is considered a classic example of 20th century pulp fiction. It is also a seminal instance of the planetary romance, a genre that became highly popular in the decades following its publication. Its early chapters also contain elements of the Western. The story is set on Mars, imagined as a dying planet with a harsh desert environment. This vision of Mars was based on the work of the astronomer Percival Lowell, whose ideas were widely popularized in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”
