Martin is fond of saying throughout his Game of Thrones books, “Winter is coming.” The nights are drawing in, cold bites at our feet, we dig our winter coats out of the closet. So it seems as good a time as any to reward my readers with a freebie. Bed Peace, a novelette which recalls the famous John and Yoko bed-in at the Amsterdam Hilton (we’d all like to stay in bed this time of year) is – for this weekend only, completely and utterly free.

Here’s the link:

We’ve never seemed further away from world peace. This fragile dream has been shattered, buried underneath games controllers, reduced to a hastily thumbed text message, converted into an emoticon. Dreamers, hippies, those who desire change are forgotten, laughed at, or shunned…

From the award-winning author AJ Kirby comes this tragi-comic novelette which mourns the idealism of the 1960s. Written in the spirit of John Lennon, this story beds in and tries to translate the swinging sixties translate into our cynical modern world. It asks salient questions: What’s happened to the belief we can really change the world? Why has flower-power become little more than a cartoon? And can we really find our way back?
