Free Horror Worth Your Reading Time

If you subscribe to or, you can find a lot (sometime too much) to read for little to no cost. When a book is that inexpensive in money, the question for me becomes – was it worth the time invested as a reader?  For the title below, my answer is yes.  Not all are perfect, but all had enough interest and originality to keep me reading to the end.

Hope you enjoy them also.

In addition to the sites mentioned above, NOOK readers can go to B& and enter 0.00 horror in the B&N search bar (or 0.00 science fiction, or mystery).  I select from Newest to Oldest, and browse.  I’ve found a couple good reads this way.

As of this post date, all of the books listed were  free on B& (since I have a NOOK E-reader), but most if not all can be found on  platforms such as Smashwords or Amazon.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens ISBN-13 9781451685626 I know there are a lot of free editions of this title, but this one has a very nice typeface/readability; from Simon & Schuster/Atria Books

The Rollerboard by A. E. Hodge BN ID: 2940046427707 Post apocalyptic short story with an interesting narrative technique and a nice twist ending.

The Edge of Life by Joe Hart BN ID: 2940045363679 Another short story, contemporary setting, very Twilight-zone/horror-ish

13 Drops of Blood by Daley, James Roy BN ID: 2940011176890 Any book that has an introduction entitled “Dear Literate Horror Fan” mentioning the 1979 miniseries ‘Salem’s Lot has a place in my library.

Dead Leaves: Eight Tales from the Witching Season by Kealan Patrick Burke BN ID: 2940032800989
