Short Story Saturday: FREE Reads

I suspect that a large number of people who read this blog will currently be self-isolating in their homes, or are practising social distancing and so will be looking for alternative forms of entertainment for the next month or so. As a result, I thought you might like to know about some of my stories that are available to read for FREE.

If zombies, steampunk alternative histories, Lovecraftian horrors, or occult detective stories are your thing, then this little lot should keep you going for a couple of days. Simply click on the cover of the story you would like to read...

The Nazis, desperate for victory at all costs, explored every avenue open to science, including some long forgotten... and some best left dead. But what if they had succeeded?

In the obscure village of Totenstadt, a team of the Reich's best minds, under the terrible Colonel von Teufel, are blending technology and the occult to create a new and terrible weapon, to test the boundary between life and death itself.

Elite British snipers Joe Randall, George "Ginger" Gibbs and Harry Atkins are sent deep into enemy lines to locate and destroy the facility. The mission will test their courage - and their sanity - to the limits...

When Courtney got together with Jimmy, she thought she was taking one small step towards getting out of this god forsaken mining town. Years went by and still she was barely making ends meet, peddling drinks and hoping for tips at the local strip joint. Little did she know, her new life was just about to begin as a new infection spreads throughout town. Forget the beer soaked dollar bills and chump change, a new hunger is taking over now... hunger for fresh human flesh.

Action and adventure in a new Age of Steam!

In two scant months the nation and all her colonies will celebrate 160 years of Queen Victoria's glorious reign. But all is not well at the heart of the empire. It begins with a break-in at the Natural History Museum. A night watchman is murdered. An eminent Professor of Evolutionary Biology goes missing. Then a catastrophic Overground rail-crash unleashes the dinosaurs of London Zoo. But how are all these events connected? Is it really the work of crazed revolutionaries? Or are there yet more sinister forces at work?

Enter Ulysses Quicksilver - ­ dandy, rogue and agent of the throne. It is up to this dashing soldier of fortune to solve the mystery and uncover the truth before London degenerates into primitive madness and a villainous mastermind brings about the unthinkable - the downfall of the British Empire!

Pax Britannia is an exciting steampunk series, set on an alternate Earth where the British Empire still reigns and steam technology rules. This, the first Ulysses Quicksilver adventure, is a must-have for fans of steampunk and swashbuckling adventure alike!

Begleiten Sie Ulysses Quicksilver bei einem mysteriös-spannendem Abenteuer und lernen Sie die fantastische Welt von PAX BRITANNIA kennen.

VANISHING POINT ist eine Kurzgeschichte aus dem PAX-BRITANNIA-Zyklus von Jonathan Green, von welchem bisher die Titel UNNATURAL HISTORY und LEVIATHAN RISING auf deutsch erschienen sind.

“When oblivion comes, it is forever, as endless as the slumber of those beings that lie buried beneath the roots of the world, dreaming in darkness.”

A writer’s research into the legend of the Lambton Worm takes a horrifying twist when he uncovers the true origin of the story: a legend that stirs, knowing the time for its rebirth is near…

A chilling tale of the Cthulhu mythos, written by award-winning author Jonathan Green.

A year on from the events of Charles Dickens’ 'A Christmas Carol', Ebenezer Scrooge finds himself visited once again by the ghost of his late business partner, Jacob Marley, who brings with him a new proposition. Just as Marley helped Scrooge to avoid the cruel fate that the last of the Three Spirits foretold, Marley wants Scrooge to help him reduce his time in Purgatory.

And so begins an epic adventure that will see the former friends face off against all manner of phantasms, freaks and fiends, with only one thing at stake… Everything!

Ebenezer Scrooge and his ghost-hunting partner Jacob Marley (already a ghost himself) visit the cathedral city of Cloisterham in order to investigate the disappearance of a young man... A certain Mr Edwin Drood.
