Planet iPad Daily Free Book Alert, Tuesday, October 19: Popular Pulp Fiction free "classic" from L. Ron Hubbard called Spy Killer; and something modern-- Swallow (Today's Sponsor); Plus over 100 more fully updated and category-sorted free Kindle Store ebook listings for your iPad

I'm not sure if we should call this Throwback Tuesday, Politically Incorrect Tuesday, or Pulp Fiction Tuesday, but sometimes there's a little baggage that goes along with a great yarn. Depending on your source, the L. Ron Hubbard novella that leads this morning's fresh new additions to our listing of free titles in the Kindle Store should sit between Elmore Leonard and Ernest Hemingway on your virtual shelves or, in the alternative, should be skipped unless it is part of a consciousness-raising course on racist, misogynistic stereotypes in popular pulp fiction of the 30s....

But first ... a word from our sponsor....

(Editor's Note: Ordinarily I don't say much to embellish the material provided by authors and publishers for our sponsorship titles, but it's not often that -- for a mere 99 cents -- we get to play a part in discovering a new novelist who is destined for very big things, as you can see from the 5-star reviews from some of the top Amazon reviewers to the great blurbs and book description below. As one of Tonya Plank's first readers among the citizens of Planet iPad, I promise that you are in a for a real treat. -S.W.)

With a cast of characters that includes a pornographer father, a sister with a knack for getting knocked up by denizens of the town pen, a tough-talking fashion maven, a painter of male nudes, an eccentric Sing Sing-residing client and a bevy of privileged Manhattan attorneys and judges, Swallow is a dark comedy about the distance that can separate fathers and daughters, and about a young woman's struggle to survive in a world of pedigreed professionals for which she has no preparation.

"Swallow, which I've just started reading, hooks you from the opening pages with its breathless urgency and captures what it's like to live in NY now, with money worries and ambition and myriad obligations breathing down your neck, and none of it written in cutesy chick-lit'ry. So give it a try." --Vanity Fair Online, James Wolcott, January 15, 2010

A shy, young Manhattan attorney from a small-town, working-class background struggles with psychosomatic disorder Globus Hystericus, which causes her difficulty eating, speaking, and even breathing. This multi-award-winning, well-reviewed often comical novel centers on class privilege, gender equity, and the distance that can separate fathers and daughters.
