Open Road Media is rather awesome. They partner with a ton of great publishers like Pegasus, Mysterious Press, and Akashic Books, among many others, and they always have great titles to choose from (classics, mystery, SF….) So, I’ve curated a few ebook titles here that might spark your imagination, and the best part is they’re all under $5 (many are under $2). How can you beat that?

Wayfaring Stranger by James Lee Burke (S&S, July 15th, 2014)-I shamefully admit that it’s been awhile since I’ve read anything by the wonderful James Lee Burke.

Since I read it in one afternoon, it’s pretty safe to say they were met. I’m a sucker for survival stories, and this is one, but it’s also a thriller that pretty much starts with a bang and doesn’t stop … Continue reading
Echo Lake by Letitia Trent (Dark House Press, June 2014)-Emily Collins has been spending the last 5 years or so working to support herself and her musician husband, while he plays gigs and crashes at friends’ houses.

This “Mancreu Cauldron” will eventually destroy the island, not to … Continue reading
