A special message on behalf of Barry Ergang
“Best Of” list of 2011, one of the books I listed was The Play of Light and Shadow by Barry Ergang. I sort-of cheated to include the book on the list, since it isn’t a “book” per se, but a short story and an article rolled into an inexpensive e-book edition. But what a story it was! The Play of Light and Shadow is quite frankly one of the best short mystery stories I’ve ever read!
And now the opportunity is yours to get it for absolutely free! Barry Ergang has temporarily made The Play of Light and Shadow and another e-book, Stuffed Shirt, available for free via Smashwords! That’s right! There’s no payment of any sort! It’s a great story! Multiple formats are available! What's the catch? There is none! Step right up and get your free copy, while supplies last!

These books are also available via Amazon.com (although they’re not free there) and it’d be great if you posted a review there, too.
