999If you're a fan of classic suspense and egde-of-your-seat horror stories, you'll want to have a look at 999: Twenty-nine Original Tales of Horror and Suspense. It's an anthology of 29 short stories of the darker genre from names like Stephen King, Edward Bryant, and Nancy A. Collins. Read it, and  you're sure to find a new favorite, too.

The first tale, Kim Newman's Amerikanski Dead at the Moscow Morgue, is a mixture of post-apocalyptic horror and nightmares from bad LSD that is honestly one of the best shorts I've ever read. I think plenty of you guys and gals will like it, too.

I know, DRM free ePub files are the right way to do eBooks. I can't argue that one, and most of my library is just that. But sometimes you gotta say what the hell and give the devil his due -- this is one of those times. And to be honest, the app isn't half bad since the latest update. Give it a try before you hate it

Make sure you have Google Play Books installed on your phone or tablet if you want to read on a mobile device, or you can just read on the web. Click here to pick it up for two bucks.

Nice to see this hilighted! Rick Hautala and Joe Lansdale are a couple of friends of mine, and their stories in here are first rate!

and as always guys forgot to mention this tiny little detail that this book is available only in US !!!
I'm wasting my timne

So maybe I'm not totally following something. This book is DRM-protected (you can tell when you download the epub file because it ends in acsm). But I can still load it onto my Nook to read - at least, I've verified I can do it with other acsm Google Play books. So what exactly is the DRM restricting?

Well... How can I read it on my Sony Reader? Or a Kobo? Or etc. That's what it's restricting. What I find amusing is that DRM just encourages piracy from my perspective.

I just confirmed that it works for me. Follow the instructions on the Play Store to download it to your computer, open with Adobe Digital Editions, then transfer to your device (a Nook in my case). Verified with 999 and last week with Foucault's Pendulum. So I'm glad it works but I still don't understand what DRM means in this case.

Just a heads up from one of the writers, Rick Hautala, when I mentioned this to him: Thanks, Scott ... I hadn't seen that ... and I hadn't gotten paid for it ... They didn't buy electronic rights back in 1999, to my knowledge ... A contract and a check for the e-book would be nice ...
