A Werewolf's Tale - , Preview:

Cassie Fields has more than a few reservations when her parents decide to move the family from their remote forest home to a small city four hours away. Would she fit in? Would she make new friends? Most importantly, would anyone find out that she and her family are werewolves? Her fears are allayed when she meets a friendly group of students at her new school, but that doesn’t last long. She soon realizes something much more sinister is happening in Crescentville. Someone—or something—is abducting supernatural beings and turning them into soulless monstrosities, and panic among her people is spreading like the plague. Fearing for her family’s safety, Cassie must rally her new friends to fight back against the evil that threatens them before they all become soldiers in a grotesque and senseless war..

Memory, Imagination, Justice - David Gurnham Preview:

Through the creative use of literary analysis, Memory, Imagination, Justice provides a critical and highly original discussion of contemporary topics in criminal law and bioethics. Author David Gurnham uses popular and classical texts, by authors including Shakespeare, Dickens, Euripides, Kafka, the Brothers Grimm, Huxley and Margaret Atwood to shed fresh light on such controversial legal and ethical issues as passionate homicide, life sentences, child pornography and genetic enhancement. Gurnham’s overarching theme is the role of memory and imagination in shaping legal and ethical attitudes. Along this line, this book examines the ways in which past wrongs are remembered and may be forcefully responded to, both by the criminal justice system itself and also by individuals responding to what they regard as gross insults, threats or personal violations. The volume further discusses the role of imagination as a creative force behind legal reform, in terms of the definition of criminal behaviour and the possible future development of the law. These ideas provide a useful and highly original perspective on contemporary issues of crime and society as they resonate both in legal and literary discussion..

Nocturnal Screams - Mark Leslie Preview:

Fans of Black Mirror, The Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine are in for a treat in this collection of short horror tales. If you enjoy fun & eerie jaunts into worlds where darkness mingles with the echoes of cries in the night, you'll love these 12 stories. VOLUME 1: Dark Cries TASTE OF DARKNESS: Sensory deprivation takes on a new meaning when you let the darkness completely consume your senses of sight, sound, touch and smell, leaving you with the bitter taste of the encroaching darkness. And you'll be surprised what you find lurking there just beneath the surface and the cold, clear light of day. THE PIZZA MAN: A group of students keep getting pizza deliveries that they never ordered. Is it a strange prank, or is there something more to the mysterious man who keeps showing up at their door? LITTLE THINGS: Strange little creatures appear in the middle of the night, but Daniel is the only one who can see them. His wife, Joy, becomes distraught at the bizarre way her husband is acting, but, more horrifying is what the tiny little things are doing to her. VOLUME 2: Ode to Classics MEMENTO MORI: A CURIOUS NIGHTMARE: Inspired by the short story "A Curious Dream" this tale draws from the same sentiment Twain was projecting regarding the ill regard the living have with "taking of the deceased." Only, in this tale, the repercussions of such neglect are far more serious. THE RITUAL OF THE DRAWING: Inspired by the small-town rituals that made Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" such a memorably chilling tale, this tale explores how a town might attempt to survive in peace and prosperity with a monster in their midst. PROSPERO'S GHOST: When, decades after his death, university employees begin to digitally replicate the precious copy of Shakespeare's 1861 folio edition, renowned scholar Dr. Marshall Emerson returns from beyond the grave to put a stop to the blasphemy. VOLUME 3: Dark Shadows THE SHADOW MEN: The bogeymen of the New Hampshire wilderness known as "The Shadow Men" lurk in the shadows of the trees and only come out at night in order to lure and trick children into their clutches. FOLLOW THE SHADOW: Isn't it funny how a person's shadow follows every single movement a person makes? Or could it perhaps be the other way around? What if a person was forced to follow the lead of their shadow? A MURDER OF SCARECROWS: A small east coast community becomes over-run in the middle of the night by a growing army of scarecrows that seem to appear out of nowhere. VOLUME 4: Literary Haunts SPIRITS: People who haven't died can still leave their spirit behind, tied to a place. Sally and Rob, two young lovers, are caught up in the legend of The Phoenix Baby, the ghostly crying that haunts a repertory theater in the city of Ottawa and, as they unravel the mystery they find themselves becoming inextricably entangled with the old abandoned building. FALL SPECTACLE: In the midst of a small northern community spiraling into the depths of fear and panic over an elusive dark figure rumored to be stalking the night, a young man attempts to reclaim both his innocence and the passion of his youth and his first love. LESS OF A MAN: The horror of losing a loved one to a vicious wasting disease can lead a person to try almost anything to bring them back..

Red Beans and Rainbows - S. L. Varnado Preview:

In this comic account of his familys misadventures during the Depression of the 1930s, author S. L. Varnado proves the truth of Mark Twains observation that the essence of comedy is tragedy. Contending that the Depression was not the gloomy period portrayed by historians, Varnado turns the spotlight of humor on such fantastic events as the night the possum fell on his mothers head, his fathers imaginary bouts of catatonia, his uncles hair breath escape from a maddened bull and the adventures of Bicycle Man, super hero extraordinaire. Integrating historical footage with comic personal narrative, Varnado creates a fresh interpretation of an important era in our history..

Frostbite - David Wellington Preview:

For Cheyenne Clark, there's a bad moon on the rise . . . There's one sound a woman doesn't want to hear when she's lost and alone in the Arctic wilderness: a howl. When a strange wolf's teeth slash Cheyenne's ankle to the bone, her old life ends, and she becomes the very monster that has haunted her nightmares for years. Worse, the only one who can understand what Chey has become is the man–or wolf–who's doomed her to this fate. He also wants to chop her head off with an axe. Yet as the line between human and beast blurs, so too does the distinction between hunter and hunted . . . for Chey is more than just the victim she appears to be. But once she's within killing range, she may find that–even for a werewolf–it's not always easy to go for the jugular..

Freak Show Legacies - Gary S. Cross Preview:

Society has long been fascinated with the freakish, shocking and strange. In this book Gary Cross shows how freakish elements have been embedded in modern popular culture over the course of the 20th century despite the evident disenchantment with this once widespread cultural outlet. Exploring how the spectacle of freakishness conflicted with genteel culture, he shows how the condemnation of the freak show by middle-class America led to a transformation and merging of genteel and freak culture through the cute, the camp and the creepy. Though the carnival and circus freak was marginalised by the 1960s and had largely disappeared by the 1980s, forms of freakish culture survived and today appear in reality TV, horror movies, dark comedies and the popularity of tattoos. Freak Show Legacies will focus less on the individual 'freak' as 'the other' in society, and more on the audience for the freakish and the transformation of wonder, sensibility and sensitivity that this phenomenon entailed. It will use the phenomenon of 'the freak' to understand the transformation of American popular culture across the 20th century, identify elements of 'the freak' in popular culture both past and present, and ask how it has prevailed despite its apparent unpopularity..

Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape.

And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one.

A Bad Breed - Kat Ross Preview:

Pricolici. A creature out of folklore. And nightmare. January 1889. When a Romanian village suffers a series of brutal attacks, occult investigator Anne Lawrence is dispatched to the forests of the Old Country to hunt the killer – only to vanish without a trace. The trail leads her mentor Vivienne Cumberland deep into the Carpathians to a remote monastery. As a blizzard rages outside, trapping them all with the pricolici, Vivienne risks sharing the fate of the woman she came to find. But is the culprit truly a werewolf … or something even more dangerous? A man bent on revenge. And a love that was never meant to be. Imprisoned in a decaying castle, Anne finds herself ensnared in a web of dark enchantment, at the mercy of a mysterious captor with a beast inside – and a memory as old as the ancient legends. As the weeks pass, Anne learns his real identity, and slowly uncovers a complex and deeply passionate man. But is she willing to pay the price for falling under his spell? Note: This darkly magical reimagining of Beauty and the Beast is the third book in the Gaslamp Gothic series, but can be read as a standalone with no need to start with Book #1, The Daemoniac. Praise for A Bad Breed “The perfect blend of fantasy, romance, and suspense. Kat Ross hit it out of the park with every single aspect of this book and I can’t wait for the next one.” –A Lovely Book Affair “Beautiful landscapes, beasts with more to them than meets the eye, women who fight the darkness, and men seeking redemption. This book was amazing.” –The Caffeinated Reader “My favorite Kat Ross book to date! Perfect for fans of the Jackaby series and of the Netflix TV show Penny Dreadful, and fairy tale reimaginings with a dark feel.” –Book Briefs “A passionate and whimsical tale of murder, mayhem and magic with a Beauty and the Beast underlay that sweeps readers up into a delectable Victorian world full of adventure.” –The Rest Is Still Unwritten “A work of class and beauty…perfectly written and perfectly paced.” –Viviana MacKade’s Book Blog “You just can’t help but fall for the male interest.
