Then enjoy a free preview of each novel or collection of short stories.Security by Gina Wohlsdorf On Sale June 7, 2016 “Grand Hotel meets Psycho in the age of surveillance: Gina Wohlsdorf’s Security is cinematically vivid, crisply written, and sharp enough to cut . . . Wohlsdorf subverts our expectations of the action genre in this smart, shocking, poignant thriller.” —Emily Croy Barker, author of The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real MagicAs Good as Gone by Larry Watson On Sale June 21, 2016 “There’s something eminently universal in Watson’s ponderings on the human condition, and it’s refracted through a nearly perfect eye for character, place, and the rhythms of language.” —The NationWe Love You, Charlie Freeman by Kaitlyn Greenidge On Sale March 8, 2016 “Kaitlyn Greenidge’s debut novel reminds us that it is an exciting time to be reading fiction. We Love You, Charlie Freeman is a masterful meditation on race, anthropology, history, and the hurly-burly complications of family. Greenidge’s prose is incisive, clever, resounding with a deep intelligence.” —Bill Cheng, author of Southern Cross the DogWelcome Thieves by Sean Beaudoin On Sale March 1, 2016 “A deviously spellbinding collection of short stories in which strange and beautiful worlds, creations of Sean Beaudoin’s dark and sometimes brutal imagination, emerge as part of a tapestry so finely woven that we don’t see the thread. In the end, we can only stand in awe of Beaudoin's immense talent.” —Garth Stein, author of A Sudden LightChasing the North Star by Robert Morgan On Sale April 5, 2016 On a moonless night in the spring of 1851, a young slave makes a bid for freedom with only the North Star to guide him. Bestselling novelist and historian Robert Morgan returns with a stunning new work of historical fiction.The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church On Sale May 3, 2016 “Oh, what an incandescent debut! . . . Church follows one extraordinary woman who is brave enough to challenge the times, take defiant wing, and chart her own extraordinary flight path . . . I never wanted the story to end.” —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of YouCover art by Hollie Chastain

  • The E Hoffmann Price Spicy Adventure MEGAPACK ™ - 14 Tales from the "Spicy" Pulp Magazines! - cover

    The E Hoffmann Price Spicy...

    E. Hoffmann Price

    E. Hoffmann Price was one of the "Weird Tales Circle" that included H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. In fact, he was the only person to meet both Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft in person.
    The 14 stories collected here span multiple genres and multiple decades: detective, western, adventure, and fantasy. The one thing they have in common (aside from some mildly titillating content required by the "Spicy" pulp magazines) is the sure voice of a born storyteller. Once you start reading an E. Hoffmann Price story, you won’t put it down. The introduction by Darrell Schweitzer, which leads off the collection, provides a lot more information on Ed’s work for the "Spicy" magazines...though quite tame by modern standards, they were considered risque in their day.
    Included in this volume are:
    INTRODUCTION, by Darrell Schweitzer
    SATAN'S DAUGHTER
    PIT OF MADNESS
    THE WALKING DEAD
    EVERY MAN A KING
    REVOLT OF THE DAMNED
    CRYSTAL CLUES
    NIGHT IN MANILA
    MURDER SALVAGE
    TRIANGLE WITH VARIATIONS
    SCOURGE OF THE SILVER DRAGON
    DRINK OR DRAW
    SHE HERDED HIM AROUND
    YOU CAN'T FIGHT A WOMAN
    SHORT-CUT TO HELL
