What if I wrote a book and nobody read it? Well, that's why I'm offering these e-books free of charge. I figure if I went to the bother of writing them maybe someone will be interested in reading them. Most are in .Lit format and can be read in Microsoft's free Reader program. They are also available in .mobi (.prc) format and can be read in Mobi Reader, Palm Reader, on your Kindle or any other reader capable of that format. Then there's HTML format. in zipped format and can be opened with Winzip, Windows zipped folders or most other archive programs. They are also available as Adobe Reader .pdf files - most of those are also free - from my storefront at www.lulu.com/jonathan27 For those who prefer to read "real" books, most can be purchased in trade paperback and hardcover there as well. (It is my intention to eventually get everything into print, but it takes time. I am also in the process of converting them to ePub format and are available at www.lulu.com/jonathan27 too. Some of my books are already on sale at Barnes and Noble's site, the iBookstore and Amazon.

The World of Maiyim - Fantasy and Fantasy-SF Adventures
Maiyim is a world covered with water and on which the only land is comprised by three major archipelagos and several somewhat smaller island groups and a few stray isolated islands. It is also a world of magic. When first planned, I only had a series of four stories in mind (The Maiyim Tetralogy). However, as time went on, the possibilities were too great to stop at only four stories and so the world grew. I set myself a challenge to write the various stories in historical milieus other than Medieval. The Maiyim Tetralogy takes place in a world that is sociologically and technologically analogous to the turn of the Twentieth Century. The second series, another tetralogy called Ars Nova Magica (incidentally Latin for "The New Magical Art") starts approximately sixty years after the final story of the first series when the world is similar to the late 1960's through the mid-1970's. The third series (Ars Scientiaque Magicae or "The Art and Science of Magic") takes place some two centuries after the end of Ars Nova Magica and is a hybrid of Fantasy and Science Fiction. There are also various connecting stories and side stories between the main stories, making this a full and rich fantasy world.

Gaenor's Quest Fantasy Adventure
Gaenor was always an odd duck in her hometown of Narmouth, but few would have expected her to apply for the job as an adepts' apprentice and none at all would have expected her to become an adept of worldwide renown. This series follows her adventures with fellow adept Artur the Southlander as they and their allies attempt no less than to save the world. Gaenor's Quest is a fantasy adventure set in a 19th Century milieu.

This did not start out as a series, but gradually grew into one. It involves various mortals who in one way or another get involved with the gods of the Ancient world. The recurring cast includes the gods of ancient Mesopotamia, Mother Nature, and a demoness who's been possessed by a human soul.

The Terralano Venture Science Fiction - Fantasy Hybrid
This also started out as a one-time story about science-technology using humans who encounter magic-using aliens in deep space. Due to popular demand, however, I decided to write a sequel and then a third story as well. Like some of my other stories these are both science fiction and fantasy with touches of humor, satire and social commentary.

The Ancient and Honorable Guild of Wayfarers bridges the gap between these two worlds. Fantasy in an 18th Century milieu.
