At Free Book Beast, our first goal is to save you time and money. We know there are lots of free and cheap speculative fiction eBooks on Amazon. Sadly, most of them aren’t that good.

What is Speculative Fiction?
This has become an umbrella term for any fiction that isn’t 100 percent based in either historical or contemporary reality. Horror, science fiction, and fantasy are the two most common genres included under this umbrella. However, it is often extended to magical realism and apocalyptic fiction. In fact, some people even put ancient myths into this category, and this makes speculative fiction the oldest genre. Some Shakespeare plays, like “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” might fall into this genre as well.
We also included speculative fiction for children because most of us started out loving these genres as kids. For example, who doesn’t remember reading, “The Once and Future King,” “The Phantom Tollbooth,” and “A Wrinkle in Time” as children. As kids get older, they might progress to “The Hobbit” and then to “Lord of the Rings.” That’s it. We get it. We’re hooked for life.
This term also covers some books that cross these genres. For example, some people contend that Game of Thrones has elements of science fiction in it, even if it is obviously a fantasy novel. Of course, many books in this class also cross into other genres like romance or historical fiction. Finally, there are some stories that are very hard to classify. A common example of this are the Tarzan novels. They aren’t exactly historical, fantasy, or science fiction, so what are they? They are speculative fiction.
It’s important to have this broader classification, so authors and readers are free to exercise their own imaginations and taste. You know what they say– authors are readers who have developed good taste and want to put that to use. Of course, there are plenty of speculative fiction readers with great taste but who never write.
We hope you add this free eBook website to your bookmarks, tell your friends, and sign up for our popular newsletter. We use both human editors and computer technology to provide quality speculative fiction for free or bargain prices, and we think that’s a pretty great deal.
