Summary

One of the most original and acclaimed science fiction novels of the twentieth century This landmark work of speculative fiction follows the adventurer Maskull as he travels to Tormance, the lone planet revolving around the double star system Arcturus. Each new land that Maskull visits is ruled by a different philosophy, and he must navigate each in succession as his body changes in response to the varying environments in which he finds himself. Never sure of his surroundings, Maskull must determine what we will and will not do to survive—a metaphysical inquiry that propels him toward an unforgettable final realization. A major influence on C. S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy, A Voyage to Arcturus is a surreal and masterful investigation into the meaning of good and evil, the nature of God, and the origins of the universe. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    Aspen Richardson loves playing roller derby: the fun, the exciting games and her teammates – an amazing bunch of curvy, kickass girls. The only thing missing from her life is a man who will love her just the way she is. In the small town she calls home, bullies from the past remain, making her wonder if it's ever going to happen. 
    
     
     
    
     
    But, things are about to change in a major way, as the secret Aspen’s parents have been keeping from her comes out: as a small child, she was chased by two wolf pups, and one of them bit and marked her. 
    
     
     
    
     
    Now on the cusp of her first shift, Aspen is hunted down by cool, laid back Brad, and impetuous, hot-headed Chase, who both desperately hope they're the fated mate of this deliciously curvy girl. The trouble is, no one knows which of them bit her, least of all Aspen, who finds herself equally drawn to these two super sexy Alphas. 
    
     
     
    
     
    This is a standalone romance, with lots of laughs and scorching ménage sex scenes. HEA and no cliffhanger!

    Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim—aka James Stark—is, quite simply, one of the most outrageous uber-anti-heroes ever to kick serious butt on this or any other world or dimension. 
    In his previous three adventures—Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, and Aloha from Hell—Stark has fled Hell for California, taken on angels, demons, outlaw bikers, zombies, covert government operatives, and all manner of monsters, while saving humankind from total annihilation on numerous occasions. But in Devil Said Bang, he finally assumes the role he was destined for: as the new Lucifer, ruler of the Underworld. 
    Combining outrageously edgy humor with a dark and truly twisted vision, Richard Kadrey has once again delivered a masterful amalgam of action novel, urban fantasy, and in-your-face horror that will delight a wide range of readers—from Christopher Moore and Warren Ellis fans to the devoted adherents of Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon Green.
