AJ Kirby Day on Kindle: Freebies and New Releases…

Posted: May 28, 2012 in AJ Kirby Short Fiction, Freebies, Other Writing by AJ Kirby

A big day for me on Amazon today, what with big news about two of my stories which are for sale on the site, one of which was newly released over the weekend, and another which, for a limited time only is available to download for free. So why don’t you help get both of them riding high in the charts? It’ll be your good deed for the day.

The freebie first.  My novelette/ long short story, ‘Bed Peace’, is, for the next four days, FREE!

“Tragic and funny, Bed Peace examines what and who we are, rather than what and who we want to be. Quite simply, it is excellent.” Anna Stephens, Hub Pages Review.

It’s a story which draws on John and Yoko, the Amsterdam Hilton, Harvey Nicks in Leeds, and shoplifting, as its inspiration. And you can get your hands on a FREE copy by going here.

 

And now on to my new release, which is already riding high in the Fantasy Short Stories charts. ‘Ace Cameron and the Red Peril‘ is a dark (very dark) comedy which lampoons, well, quite a lot. You can buy it here, and here’s the teaser…

Leeds Angeles, 2019:

It is the best of times and the worst of times. The gap between rich and poor has never been greater. The rich live in gated communities out in the countryside, living the cosseted lives they deserve because they’ve been bred that way.

The Dickensian poor have been allowed to remain in the cities, but the cities are not comfortable places. They’ve been left to stagnate into a state of managed decline. Buildings and hopes are collapsing. Perimeter fencing, curfews and sheer poverty are the only things which have kept the peasants from revolting, until now…

Now something is changing. The Reds, led by a sinister man known only as X, have infiltrated the city and are polluting the minds of the citizens.
Ace Cameron, a bounty hunter extraordinaire from the old, bold days, has been brought back from retirement, back into the loop… Back from the dead, some of his colleagues say.

Only Ace has the wherewithal and classical training, the ruddy chutzpah, to be able to face up to X.

A battle for the souls of humanity will come to pass…
