COVID-19 is heartbreaking, ravaging our world and killing tens of thousands. As there’s no vaccine, the only effective strategy to contain its exponential growth is to self-isolate and stay at home.

There’s not much a science fiction writer can do beyond encourage people to listen to the experts and wash their hands, but I thought I could help with a #StayHome #ReadAtHome campaign.

Not my library, but oh, how I wish…

Here’s how it works… for the next 40 days, there will be at least one novel available for free on Amazon every two days! Each ebook will remain free for five days (or as determined by the author). Here’s the schedule. Hopefully, that’ll give you plenty to #ReadAtHome.

  1. Hi Peter loved 98% of your books! Can you please write a follow up to Galactic Exploration? That was favorite book! Especially the last third when they fought the aliens. Please write further adventures.

    • Oh, I’d love to… I have plenty of material for a sequel but the book was never that popular and sequels rarely do as well as the original… some writers do incredibly well with sequels and series. I’ve always struggled with them, but I’ve only just this year become a full time author, so maybe I’ll have a bit more time to revisit Galactic Exploration. BTW, the proposed titles for the two additional books I originally planned were Galactic Conquest and Galactic War. Thanks for supporting independent science fiction.

  2. Hello Peter,

    thank you for your kind offering #ReadAtHome.

    I have bought several paper books Like My Sweet Satan, Ezekiel and bought Galactic Exploration via Kindle.

    Galactic Exploration is standing out. The reading experience was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the clever twists and aim for scientific accuracy.

    I can only kindly implore you to write the 2 sequels to Galactic Exploration that you mentioned in your blog here earlier. Maybe you want to consider to crowdfund the effort?

    I’ll stop writing for now, cuz I have to read ‘Free Fall’ this afternoon.

    With a heartfelt thank you for great hours of thrilled reading,

    • Tim.

      First, thank you for supporting independent science fiction. After almost a decade of writing, I finally became a full time author this year. Unfortunately, it’s the worst possible time to try to make it as an author with the US political situation, the pandemic and a looming recession hitting, but I’m working hard on it. Secondly, I’d love to revisit Galactic Exploration with a sequel. No plans at the moment, but if some of my next few books take off, that’ll give me a little more breathing space to be able to undertake pet projects like Galactic War.

      Kind regards,
      PS. If you haven’t, be sure to subscribe to my email newsletter

  3. Hi Peter,

    I posted a note here before, but somehow it might have been lost in the ether.

    Thank you for #ReadAtHome which has been a kind and generous way of motivating readers to stay at home and away from a Corona infection.

    I owned already the paperbacks of My Sweet Satan and Ez3kiel, but have recently bought Free Fall and Galactic Exploration via Kindle (I like paper, so I’ll buy the paper version always as well after).

    I can only kindly implore you to write the 2 sequels to Galactic Exploration that you hinted about in a blog reply below. I’d say the book so far is your MASTER piece – pun intended. I am reading Science Fiction since 35+ years, from an early age on and the 4 novellas tieing together struck a cord.

    I hope you give your Galactic Exploration Trek a chance. Have you thought about crowdfunding the two sequels?

    With best regards,

  4. The Early 20th century is the birth of Pulp Fiction and modernist writing. During this era, science fiction became well-known to the mass audience. The birth of mainstream publishers paved the way for the genre to reach its golden age.
