Summary

"Even things that go bump in the night need a place to unwind." 
You will find the Grand nestled atop a cliff that overlooks a cursed valley. Surrounded by foreboding mountains, this ritzy French palatial-style hotel is a place where a roaring party's success can be measured by its body count. This hotel does not cater to the rich and famous. Instead, its staff and facilities accommodate a clientele with a more discerning palate. 
The Grand is a collection of Gothic fantasy stories with an overarching storyline that incorporates supernatural themes. The Roaring Twenties are used to create a rich historical, linguistic and cultural backdrop. 
Centred on the Grand's victims, each story brings a different perspective to the hotel, the staff and their esteemed guests. At the Grand, it is always best to remember that even things that go bump in the night need a place to unwind.

    These tales range from the merely odd to the fantastic, from the tragic to the magical. In one story you'll accompany a Cajun on a single-minded mission into the backwoods of Louisiana on a deep, humid night. In another, you'll witness the life or death struggle between a fifteen year old boy and the mean drunk who's been his oppressor for years. There's also a story about writing and the writer stalking his mentor; a job that very few could do but for which many would apply (wanna be a Mind Cleaner?); and a child's tale of a favorite pasttime: crushing bugs. Eric also offers up the ground rules for getting by when your shadow is doing odd things, writes of the passion between Giacomo Casanova and the one woman he has loved down through the ages, and wonders aloud what might happen if the characters in a story grew tired of a hack writer and banded together against him. Finally he takes the reader on a hectic road trip in "Interference," and ends with "A Natural Study of the Scream." All in all, this collection provides a very satisfying, if extremely unusual, reading experience. The reader will remember these stories.

    Richard C Dellinger’s debut novel gives us a terrifying glimpse into the near future. An intense, pulse-pounding ride that will dig its genetically modified claws into you and won’t let go. A book for the fans of Michael Crichton’s clever techno-thrillers (Jurassic Park) and Stephen King’s nerve-shredding horror novels (Cujo). 
    World-renowned geneticist Dr. Peter Birch is barely hanging on. When his wife dies of Huntington's disease, his whole world crumbles. He loses his love, his career, his home… and his will to live. His teenage daughter is the only glimmer of joy in a bleak existence. 
    Then a mysterious package arrives. Inside, a white mouse — genetically modified with miraculous abilities. When Pete’s daughter shows signs of the same genetic disease that killed his wife, he realizes that this mouse could be the key to saving her life. But who sent it, and why? 
    As he races to find a cure he is recruited by a secretive company called Plinian Labs owned by an intensely private billionaire and philanthropist. Wielding a powerful new tool called CRISPR, the company is on the cutting edge of genetic engineering. But the more Pete learns about the company, the more desperate he becomes to escape. As the clock runs out, he must choose between saving his daughter… or saving the world.

    Wake up. It's the first day of seventh grade. Your whole life, from that day until today, vanished like a camera flash. No one else remembers the last ten/fifteen/we-won't-say-how-many years. 
    What do you do? 
    A chilling thought for you. Reality for her. Yesterday, Amy was about to turn twenty-six. Today is Amy's birthday—her thirteenth birthday—and the first day of seventh grade. The last thirteen years vanished overnight. 
    Amy doesn't know how she got here or how she can get back. If she can get back. If she confides in the wrong person, she could be ridiculed, bullied, committed, even killed. So how can she tell the wrong person from the right one? 
    On top of all this, Amy has to survive middle school, again. All the bullies, mean girls, belittling teachers, and hormone-crazed hellions are still there. Every cutting comment hurts just as much the second time around. And what's the story with that strange snake symbol she sees everywhere, or the guy who seems to know way more about her than he's willing to tell? 
    I Am Not Thirteen is an intense, and devastating, supernatural thriller that will keep you hooked until the very last page.
