Angels, Demons, Cyberspace--Oh My! (or, More Free Books!)


Calling H. David Blalock's new novel Angelkiller a genre mutt would be an understatement.  It's got elements of paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi (cyberpunk), horror, theology, thriller, and two or three others I'm probably missing.  Just looking at the cover makes me want to simultaneously dance with glee and run and hide under my bed.  I mean, just check out what Amazon has to say about it.

Why do bad things happen to good people? Simple. In the ancient war between the Angels of Light and Darkness, the Dark won. Now it is the job of an undercover force simply known as The Army to rectify that.

Using every tool available, The Army has worked to liberate our world from The Enemy for thousands of years, slowly and painfully lifting Mankind out of the dark. On the front of the great Conflict are the Angelkillers, veterans of the
fight with centuries of experience.

Jonah Mason is an Angelkiller, and his cell is targeted as part of plot to unseat a very powerful Minion of The Enemy. Mason and his troop are drawn into a battle that stretches from real-time to virtual reality and back. The Conflict is about to expand into cyberspace, and if Mason is unable to stop it, The Enemy will have gained dominion over yet another realm.

Bitchin', right?  Sure, but do you know what's even better?  For today only (well, yesterday too, but I didn't have time to post about it yesterday, and none of you have a time machine, so we can't do anything about it now) the good folks at Seventh Star Press are giving away electronic copies of Angelkiller on Amazon for free. I've already got mine, and you'd get on over there and get your free copy while the getting's good.

I mean really--if there's anything better than an awesome book, it's a free awesome book.  Now can I get an "amen"?

  1. Damnit! I sold my time machine at a garage sale last month. I could sure use it now.

    1. At least tell me you got twenty-five bucks for it (or whatever that is in Taiwanese money). Any less than that and you were robbed.

    2. I got the 25 bucks, but I had to throw my old rice cooker in to sweeten the deal. Thanks for the congrats. We're really excited.

    1. Any other kind of quickie, and people would start worrying.

    1. Well, I only heard about it because of you, so that's where all the credit (and thanks) should go.

  4. A guy in one of my classes gave a presentation on time-travel. Which was weird because it was an Intercultural Communications class and the assignment was to create a presentation about a religion other than your own.

    1. Did he argue based upon the time travel method in Star Trek IV (slingshot around the sun) or the Star Trek: First Contact (temporal gateway) method? Interested people want to know!

      Sorry. That was a dig at all the trekkies out there. Probably sailed over most people's heads. :)
