Two Free Ebooks

As of now, you can download for free from Amazon two ebooks published by PS Publishing. The books and their synopses are the following:

The Extraordinary Voyage of Jules Verne by Eric Brown (Amazon US, Amazon ES):

Paris, 1855. Jules Verne, struggling playwright and frustrated dreamer, finds himself whisked through time, first into the Cretaceous Period, and then into the far future, on a perilous quest to save the world from the tyranny of Robur, the insane Master of the World. Verne is famous for giving the world such classics as Around the World in 80 Days, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. But what is not known is that Verne experienced an adventure equal to any he wrote about, a quest in which he met mad airship captains, beautiful rebels, and a race of ant-like aliens - and at the same time brought about the salvation of planet Earth and the dawn of a new Golden Age for humankind. 

The Lives of the Savages by Robert Edric (Amazon ES, Amazon US):

Throughout most of their short, violent, disorganised and unrewarding spree as Depression-era bank robbers, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were accompanied by W. D. Jones — drifter, driver, opportunist, psychopath, fantasist and teenager. Towards the end of their time together, having endured Clyde’s mockery and abuse, and despite his obvious affection for Bonnie, Jones abandoned the duo and was swiftly tracked down and arrested. Awaiting trial, and keen to save his own young neck, Jones was visited by Captain Frank Hamer, ex-Texas Ranger and the lawman tasked with bringing Parker and Barrow’s trail of bloody and increasingly reckless and seamless violence to an end. Hamer and Jones met on several occasions and, manipulative and contradictory as ever, Jones became instrumental in Hamer’s eventual plan to destroy the two killers. Promising an eager, clamouring press that he was keeping a full and detailed record of everything that passed between himself and Jones, Frank Hamer’s memoirs make only a single reference to his captive’s lengthy confession and reveal nothing whatsoever of Jones’s own endlessly-shifting, self-serving and desperate revelations.
