Science fiction, science fantasy

My husband likes science fiction--solid, believable science, actions with consequences, characters who care about details and facts before opinions...

My son's more interested in fantasy--complex, plausible characters, storylines with depth, worlds of intricate imagination...

Me, I like both, especially when they're packaged in the same book. I read and reviewed Karen Wyle's Twin Bred some time ago, an exciting novel with lots of twists and turns, plots and sub-plots, ethical dilemmas, and an alien race worthy of Orson Scott Card, plus believable science and a just a gentle hint of fantasy. And I heard it's available free, just today (well, yesterday too, but that doesn't help you) on kindle, so why not give it a try.

Hmmm, lots of interesting free books turning up on kindle. Will Amazon start offering free time to read them too? There's a thought for a tale...

I wish Amazon would find free time to read all these books too!

Thanks for mentioning TWIN BRED by Karen Wyle is free right now. I went and snagged a copy. I do like a dash of fantasy with my sci-fi.
