“The Kraken” Free to Download until Saturday

The first short story from my Hell Mythos series is free to download on Amazon until Saturday. Check it out!

Amazon has a system where you can make each volume free for 5 days every 3 months. I’ll be trying to take advantage of as I can. “Long Road to Ruin” should be free next week, from Monday to Friday, and hopefully I’ll publish “Children of a Lesser God” shortly after that.

Here’s the scoop on “The Kraken”:
Can two demons catch a legend? When Mephistopheles brings Moloch a tentacle from the Kraken, the hunt begins. These two devils and their crew of the damned set off to capture this mythical sea-beast, hoping to win him to Hell’s cause. When they encounter the Kraken, their journey takes a disastrous turn . . .

In the tradition of the Kindle Singles, “The Kraken” is a bite-sized voyage into the underworld (~30 pages, including the bonus short story “Sunday Drive,” about the first automobile in Hell). “The Kraken” is the opening volume of the Hell Mythos, a connected series of short stories, novellas, and novels that tells the inside story of Hell, from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high. Come see the devils as they live their demonic lives, in all their glory, evil, and confusion.

Written by Kyle J. Acosta, the Hell Mythos is a new take on the underworld in the rich tradition of Tad Williams’s The Dirty Streets of Heaven, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s Inferno, James Blish’s The Devil’s Day and the Heroes in Hell collections.
