    From the award-winning “heir to the mantle of Stephen King”: A supernatural entity draws a woman into a terrifying nightmare (The National Post).   Some little girls have imaginary friends. Ann LeSage had the Insect. A violent poltergeist that tore a murderous path through her family, it wasn’t imaginary—and it definitely wasn’t a friend.   Now Ann is all grown up—and so is the Insect. And Ann’s upcoming marriage to a mysterious young lawyer is about to open up a whole new world to both of them, rife with secrets and laced with traps. Soon, Ann will find herself in a perverse battle against a group of men who want to wrest control of the Insect from her. What they don’t know is, if you play with the Insect, you’re sure to get stung . . .   “Few writers do psychosexual horror as well as Toronto’s David Nickle, and with The ’Geisters he’s back with another tale of voluptuous terror and the supernatural.” —Toronto Star   “This is a book that buzzes in your ears, climbs your crawling skin with multiple barbed feet, feeling with exquisitely sensitive antennae for the next new and terrible revelation.” —The National Post   “[The ’Geisters] doesn’t just explore the attractiveness of terror—it embodies it in a narrative that demands (excites even as it repels) your attention. It’s a(nother) strong novel by one of the best, most interesting horror writers working today.” —Bookgasm

    “A smart, deep, black magic carnie noir existential bloodbath” from the acclaimed author of Boon (Gemma Files, Shirley Jackson Award–winning author).   In the shadow of World War II, the barren, dusty streets of Litchfield, Arkansas, are even quieter than usual, leaving hotel detective George “Jojo” Walker with too much time to struggle with his own personal demons.   But everything changes when a traveling picture show comes to town. The film’s purveyors check into the hotel where Jojo works and set up a special midnight screening at the local theater. The curtain rises on a surreal carnival of dark magic and waking nightmares, starring Jojo and the residents of Litchfield, as madness, murder, and mayhem threaten to engulf them all . . .   “A stunner of a story . . . Flat-out brilliant . . . Unfolds like petals of an exotic and scandalous black flower—each one gently opening to give the reader a distressing revelation . . . Powerful ideas, wrapped in a dark mantle of horror.” —My Haunted Library “If you like pulpy noir with a dose of existentialism mixed with some utterly bizarre horror, this book is for you.” —Fangoria “Genre mash-ups like this one are difficult to execute, but Kurtz navigates it deftly, with writing so visceral and evocative it feels less like reading a book and more like watching a film in real time.” —Literary Hub “While it echoes with the shadowy threatening of Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes and the religious dread of Hjortsberg’s Falling Angel, the clearest voice here is Kurtz’s own cry into the existential abyss.” —Bracken MacLeod, author of Mountain Home

In a test run, they discover the vehicle cannot be turned, and it burrows 500 miles into the Earth's crust, emerging into the unknown interior world of Pellucidar.

    Joining the Galactic Garrison was the best decision Ada Gomez ever made for herself. Or so she thought. Orphaned, with her brother Sarkus in the foster system who she can't claim custody of, a guardian who is days from kicking her out and, no job. There is nothing left for her on planet Earth. The only thing going for her is that she has made it. After three years of work, she qualified to begin training for the esteemed Special Operations team on the Galactic Garrison's space station. Joining the Spec Ops division is a chance to start over, to make a name for herself, and if she plays her cards right maybe, Ada can get Sarkus back. But her journey is just beginning.
     
    Being in the Spec Ops isn't easy. It isn't supposed to be. Any sign of weakness must be squashed, fear is the devil, and hesitation is worse than death. But some of the training doesn't add up. And any semblance of structure? It looks like Ada left that on Earth. 
     
    Ada and her team do their best to put the pieces together and figure out what exactly is going on and roll with the punches mentally and physically to come out on top.
     
    Little do they know the hardest test is yet to come. Because this year everything is different.
