Free Skulduggery Pleasant Short Stories for Amazon Kindle

by martin on December 4, 2011

Skulduggery Pleasant Short StoriesSkulduggery Pleasant, Derek Landy’s undead skeletal detective, looks set to be the next big thing in Young Adult fiction, with its refreshingly dark blend of horror, mystery and flat-out comedy. Witty, inventive and always engaging, the Skulduggery Pleasant series has already won multiple awards, and there’s even talk of a spinoff film franchise coming to cinema screens in the very near future…

If you haven’t come across the books yourself yet, you can get a good idea of what they’re all about thanks to two stories that you can download for free from Amazon.

The Lost Art of World Domination (which I’ve blogged about before) is set shortly after the events of the first novel: Skulduggery is chained to a wall facing certain death at the hands of arch-villain Scaramouch Van Dreg as part of his plan to take over the world.

Gold, Babies and the Brother Muldoon takes place a few months after the events described in Playing with Fire, book two of the Skulduggery Pleasant series. Skulduggery’s partner, Valkyrie Cain, attempts to make a deal with three devious goblins to save the lives of three babies, but all does not go to plan…

The two short stories are in Amazon’s proprietary Kindle format, but if you don’t have a Kindle eReader, you can download free Kindle reader software for your PC, smartphone or Mac.

Happy reading!
