Interview with the Author 
Q - So, what makes the Re-Runners Series special?A - They say that in the world of stories, there are no NEW ideas and maybe that's true. But I don't think there's been a series of books on this subject, done quite like this before. 
I'm sure plenty of people have thought - 'If I knew what I know now and could go back and do it all over again - Wow, the things I could achieve. Righting wrongs, avoiding the mistakes of your 'first life'... So many possibilities.' 
Q - It's an interesting concept, but what genre does the Re-Runner series come under? 
A - That's a difficult one. It's a mix of the kind of books I like to read, and I like to read everything. First up it's a paranormal time travel book, in the sense that initially the story chronicles the lives of three people, their death and their rebirth. There's also the element of thriller horror with the grisly murders committed by the serial killer, suspense when the FBI and LA detectives are tracking the infamous murderer and of course the mystery of how and why this re-living of lives has happened to them. 
These three people from different countries (Australia and the US... and later Italy) are thrown into repeating their lives, but retaining all of the knowledge of their previous existences; maybe for all eternity. Who knows? 
What would you do if it happened to you? Would you change? Create a new life or keep the old one? Make different choices or stay the same? Leave a legacy for the human race? It poses some interesting questions. 
Q - You've got every other genre in there, but you've forgotten the Romance junkies. What? No love story? 
A - Hey, of course there's a love story. It builds slowly and comes in Book 2 – Re-Runners Second Life. What's a novel (or series of novellas) without a love story? Life is all about love/hate, life/death, mistakes made/lessons learned. We're human, so of course there's a love story. Need you ask? 
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?A - Because Re-Runners is a little dark and a little science fiction but it also takes you on a ride of possibilities. You'll find yourself imagining re-living your life. Maybe you wouldn't be tracking down serial killers, but it certainly makes you think. 
Ultimately, readers who enjoy a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series. Thanks for reading!

    In the Longsellers collection, you will find the most read and loved books of all time.
    
    Published in 1890, The Picture of Dorian Gray, became a classic whenever we talk about about the superficial nature of social relationships and escapism through beauty and art.
    
    The story is about Dorian Gray, a young man of high society, who makes a dark pact to have eternal youth while the painting with his portrait ages. Over time, his life of immoralities and abuses turns the picture into a monster. Wilde's only novel, it was subject to much controversy and criticism in its time but has come to be recognized as a classic of gothic literature.
    
    Oscar Wilde was famous in the 1890s for his very popular plays. Wilde, who was homosexual, would also become known for being prosecuted for "indecent behavior," a charge for which he was convicted and imprisoned between the years 1895 and 1897.
    
    This book also contains the essays Art And Morality, by Stuart Mason, and Biographical Summary, by Arthur Ransome. With this extra content the reader will find a greater understanding of the personal life, the historical context, and the polemics of this great author.
    
    We hope you'll love this book as much we do, and don't forget to check the rest of the collection for more beloved classics.

    Dracula's Guest and Other Stories

    Best known for his masterpiece of horror, Dracula, Bram Stoker wrote a number of other novels and many short stories, all on supernatural themes or filled with a physical terror reminiscent of Poe. Dracula’s Guest was originally part of the great novel, but was excised and published separately. Some of these stories, such as The Squaw, The Judge’s House and The Burial of the Rats, rank very high among classic tales of the macabre. These stories deserve to be better known for the light they shed on the enigmatic author of one of the world’s supreme literary adventures into the realm of nightmare.

    The human form is familiar to all of us.  We like limbs connected to bodies.  Writers of the dark and macabre are not too concerned if that remains the case.  Indeed limbs, or rather pieces of the body, sometimes are best written about when not connected.  It’s one of our greatest fears.  It quite rightly riddles us with a very unsettling feeling.  So why then do we turn the page?  We’re about to find out.

    Universal Harvester - A Novel

    Jeremy works at the Video Hut in Nevada, Iowa. It's a small town in the center of the state—the first a in Nevada pronounced ay. This is the late 1990s, and even if the Hollywood Video in Ames poses an existential threat to Video Hut, there are still regular customers, a rush in the late afternoon. It's good enough for Jeremy: it's a job, quiet and predictable, and it gets him out of the house, where he lives with his dad and where they both try to avoid missing Mom, who died six years ago in a car wreck. 
    But when a local school teacher comes in to return her copy of Targets—an old movie, starring Boris Karloff, one Jeremy himself had ordered for the store—she has an odd complaint: "There's something on it," she says, but doesn't elaborate. Two days later, a different customer returns a different tape, a new release, and says it's not defective, exactly, but altered: "There's another movie on this tape." 
    Jeremy doesn't want to be curious, but he brings the movies home to take a look. And, indeed, in the middle of each movie, the screen blinks dark for a moment and the movie is replaced by a few minutes of jagged, poorly lit home video. The scenes are odd and sometimes violent, dark, and deeply disquieting. There are no identifiable faces, no dialogue or explanation—the first video has just the faint sound of someone breathing—but there are some recognizable landmarks. These have been shot just outside of town. 
    So begins John Darnielle's haunting and masterfully unsettling Universal Harvester: the once placid Iowa fields and farmhouses now sinister and imbued with loss and instability and profound foreboding. The audiobook will take Jeremy and those around him deeper into this landscape than they have ever expected to go. They will become part of a story that unfolds years into the past and years into the future, part of an impossible search for something someone once lost that they would do anything to regain.
