1632 by Eric Flint – an exciting e-book from the Baen Free Library

1632 is not quite sci-fi, not quite historical fiction, and one hundred percent page-turning excitement. It's speculative fiction that answers the question: What would happen if a West Virginian town from the year 2000 were suddenly transported to Europe in 1632? This set-up is the only sci-fi element to the plot; the rest of the adventures simply unfold from there as the citizens of Grantville cope with being dropped into the middle of a bloody European war. Can they survive the armies ravaging the German countryside? And can the armies of Europe survive their introduction to rifles, motorcycles, and rock 'n roll?

Listen to LoveJones aka Mike Schpitz & Phys Edison’s free laid back rap album “Sunday Drive”

Finding the perfect chemistry between producer and MC is a very rare if not magical occurrence. With the single driven, mixtape economy of hip hop, finding this connection for an entire album seems virtually impossible. One duo however, has not only managed to find that chemistry and share the same vision, they have also managed to create a conceptual piece of work that flows seamlessly from start to finish without skipping a beat.

Amelie’s “Be Low”- a free British pop-rock EP from Italy

Amelie is an Italian band going for a British pop-rock sound. Actually, if you listen to their music first without knowing where they came from, it won't even cross your mind that they're Italian. I believe they've got the genre right down pat. If you're a fan of gritty, soulful, slow rock the way the British do it, give Amelie a listen.

SuperTux – an addicting Super Mario style game with a Friendly Penguin

SuperTux is a very fun rip-off of the classic Super Mario 2d sidescroller adventure game. What sets it apart from Super Mario copycats, though, is a complete overhaul of Super Mario’s world. Super Mario is replaced by SuperTux, a cute black penguin that looks exactly like the plush penguin toys available in toy stores. The graphics are also completely different—gone are the flat-looking stages that have bland colors in it. In SuperTux, the stages are rendered in different shades of blue. Almost all stages are set in snowy grounds—a fitting environment for the SuperTux the penguin.

The FranzDiego EP – authentic & personal rap from Minnesota

The FranzDiego EP is a solo debut album from Franz Diego - a Minnesota rap artist and member ILLUMINOUS 3 band. I don't really remember how I came across this EP, but I remember that I fell for the smart, sincere lyrics and tracks full of rhythm and base. A fellow Minnesota MC, Kyle "Guante" Myhre, wrote about him: "an indie rapper with personality, he weaves through each track spitting lines that are at once insightful, honest, funny and original. And his flow is smooth and conversational yet technically precise; it’s a joy to listen to."

Fhernando “Sweet Addiction” – a free Creative Commons licensed dance album, now on FrostWire

Fhernando is a great young Mexican DJ whose most recent album, "Sweet Addiction", got some amazing reviews on free music download websites and social networks. Fhernando, or Fernando Ramires Rios, has been composing music since he was a teenager and has already released several EPs and singles. "I Love New York", his previous release, was a house/trance/electro composition. "Sweet Addiction" falls in between the disco/house/funk genres, with more complicated arrangements and "sexy & glam" style. Both are happy, energetic and capturing.
