Summary

A murderous madman plans to resurrect an ancient monster buried beneath a small Canadian town in this chilling novel for fans of Joe Hill.It’s 1972, and there are some new arrivals to the remote mining village of Parr’s Landing . . .The recently widowed Christina Parr and her brother-in-law, Jeremy, are the first to show up. Both fled town years ago because of the same woman—but for ultimately different, dark reasons. They weren’t expecting a warm welcome upon their homecoming, but they had nowhere else to turn.Meanwhile, Dr. Billy Lightning is searching for clues to prove the grisly death of his anthropologist father was not an accident. But the police aren’t likely to be helpful to someone like him.Then there’s Richard Weal. With his long hair and cowboy hat, the disheveled man looks like a hippie. But the contents of his hockey bag will show he’s anything but peaceful. He has cut a bloody path across the country to answer a powerful, supernatural call. In a cave near Bradley Lake, there slumbers a three-hundred-year-old horror that urgently wants to be released . . .“Skillfully brings to mind the classic works of Stephen King and Robert McCammon.” —Christopher Rice, New York Times–bestselling author of the Burning Girl series“[Rowe] rescues the modern vampire novel from its current state of mediocrity with his dead-on portrayal of the gothic small town, rich characters and deeply frightening story. . . . Read Enter, Night. With the lights on.” —Susie Moloney, bestselling author of The Thirteen

    This debut horror novel by the author of short story collection Monstrous Affections “establishes him as a worthy heir to the mantle of Stephen King” (National Post).   Set in 1911, Eutopia “mixes utopian vision, rustic Americana, and pure creepiness. . . . Nickle blends Little House on the Prairie with distillates of Rosemary’s Baby and The X-Files to create a chilling survival-of-the-fittest story” (Publishers Weekly).   Situated on the edge of the woods and mountains of northern Idaho, the tiny settlement of Eliada is an industrialist’s attempt to create heaven on earth. But its secrets are soon to be unveiled, as Jason Thistledown, the sole survivor of a mysterious plague in Montana, and Andrew Waggoner, a black doctor nearly lynched by the KKK, delve beneath the façade of the utopian mill town. What they discover is science warped by ideology—and an unearthly monster that preys on the faith of its own true believers . . .   “A story of piano-wire suspense, grotesque horrors, and, above all, visceral insight into the race politics of American horror, and how they are bound up with the American project itself.” —Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing  Praise for David Nickle   “His stories are dark, wildly imaginative, and deeply compassionate—even when they’re laced with righteous anger.” —Nathan Ballingrud, author of Wounds “David Nickle is Canada’s answer to Stephen King. His writing charms even as it slices like a blade between the ribs: sharp, subtle, and never less than devastating.” —Helen Marshall, author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After

    Sophie :
    Being an assistant is easy. You have to be organized (I mostly am), have lots of patience (they should make me the poster girl for it), and the ability to smile even when you want to cry (the smiley face emoji is my spirit animal). Being star linebacker Max Kingston`s super-secret assistant/sobriety companion? Not so easy when I also happen to have a major crush on him.
    
    Max :
    
    I have a crazy person living in my house, and I can`t get her out. An unfortunate problem regarding pain medicine has landed me in the position of having to endure living with a pink-haired,yoga-loving, hippie odd-ball. The worse part? I`m starting to like her a little too much. She`s not my type, but I keep forgetting that.

    In the Retro Hugo Award–nominated novel that inspired the Syfy miniseries, alien invaders bring peace to Earth—at a grave price: “A first-rate tour de force” (The New York Times).   In the near future, enormous silver spaceships appear without warning over mankind’s largest cities. They belong to the Overlords, an alien race far superior to humanity in technological development. Their purpose is to dominate Earth. Their demands, however, are surprisingly benevolent: end war, poverty, and cruelty. Their presence, rather than signaling the end of humanity, ushers in a golden age . . . or so it seems.   Without conflict, human culture and progress stagnate. As the years pass, it becomes clear that the Overlords have a hidden agenda for the evolution of the human race that may not be as benevolent as it seems.   “Frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic . . . Clarke is a master.” —Los Angeles Times

    A warrior falls as the cult classic sword and sorcery series continues—the inspiration for the film starring Jack Palance.  Tarl Cabot finds himself transported back to Counter-Earth from the sedate life he has known as a history professor on Earth. He is glad to be back in his role as a dominant warrior and again in the arms of his true love. Yet Tarl finds that his name on Gor has been tainted, his city defiled, and all those he loves made outcasts. He is no longer in the position of a proud warrior, but an outlaw for whom the simplest answers must come at a high price. He wonders why the Priest-Kings have called him back to Gor, and whether it is only to render him powerless.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Outlaw of Gor is the 2nd book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
