Summary

Over the course of a storied literary career that has spanned more than half a century, Ray Bradbury has taken us to wonderful places: across vast oceans to foreign lands, onto summer porches of small-town America, through dark and dangerous forests where predators wait, into the hypnotic mists of dream, back to a halcyon past to remember, forward into an exhilarating future, and rocketing through outer space. 
In We'll Always Have Paris—a new collection of never-before-published stories—the inimitable Bradbury once again does what few writers have ever done as well. He delights us with prose that soars and sings. He surprises and inspires, exposing truths and provoking deep thought. He imagines great things and poignantly observes human foibles and frailties. He enchants us with the magic he mastered decades ago and still performs flawlessly. In these pages, radio voices become indomitable flesh and the dead arise to recapture life. There is joy in an eccentric old man's dance for the world and wonder over the workings of humankind's best friend, O Holy Dog. Whether he's exploring the myriad ways to be reborn, or the circumstances that can make any man a killer, or returning us to Mars, Bradbury opens the world to us and beckons us in. 
Get ready to travel far and wide once again with America's preeminent storyteller. His tales will live forever. We will always have Bradbury—and for that reason, we are eternally blessed.

    A much-admired patron of the arts and something of a ‘ladies’ man, the Duke of Arkholme, a very rich and celebrated aristocrat, is as passionate about music as he is bored by the attentions of predatory Society ladies. He decides to launch at his own expense a competition to encourage talented new composers, but he finds that the entrants he has to listen to are insipid and uninspiring.So when he hears the sparkling brilliant music he has been searching for being played on his own piano in a room next to his bedroom in his own home in the middle of the night, he is bewitched. Even more so when the pianist proves to be a pale, elfin, auburn-haired beauty called Vanola. She forces the Duke at gunpoint to listen longer to her music and she relates the story of her Hungarian father and his failure to attract any interest in his superb and innovative compositions in England.He is also horrified to be told by Vanola that his employees are corrupt and taking bribes from entrants to his auditions, so that the real talent, such as her father’s, is excluded. Realising that she is half-starved and that her father is at death’s door, he is determined to make amends, despite her implacable contempt for him for employing crooked Managers. Soon the Duke realises that he has fallen in love – but too late. Vanola’s father is dead and in her grief and fury she has fled to who knows where and it seems that he has lost her and his one chance of happiness forever.

    With her aging grandfather on his deathbed and not expected by his doctors to live for more than two or three months, it comes as little comfort to the beautiful Gytha Sullivan that he has made her the heiress to his considerable fortune. What is much worse is Sir Robert Sullivan’s fear that she will be seduced by some ‘smarmy fortune-hunter’, who will squander her inheritance.And this deep concern of his makes him insist that she marries one or other of her two loathsome cousins, Vincent and Jonathan, who will do anything to take his fortune for themselves.Desperate to escape from this terrible fate, Gytha goes to visit the Master of the neighbouring estate, the dashingly handsome Lord Locke, whose life her father once saved in the War against Napoleon, and beseeches him to, in turn, save her by becoming engaged to her, thereby making a forced marriage to either of her cousins impossible. Appalled by the poor girl’s plight his Lordship agrees much to the anger of Gytha’s family and his exotic lover the entrancing Princess Zuleika. Little does Lord Locke know that, as he gains a false fiancée, he is truly about to lose his heart!

    For these five friends, taking the back road was a horrible idea. 
    Overview: 
    Rebecca Long is a college student at Tulane University. With school out and the summer heat and unbearable humidity swallowing New Orleans, Rebecca can't wait to join her friends on a road trip to Chicago for a rock concert.  
     
    Don't take a wrong turn... 
     
    While traveling a desolate highway in the Mississippi Delta on a slight detour, the group's car breaks down, and they find themselves stranded. 
     
    But when a man offers to assist them, the students find it's not always good to accept the help of strangers. Rebecca is knocked unconscious and wakes up tied to a wheelchair. It's dark, she's alone, and she has no idea where she is. 
     
    Then, the lights come on, and the game begins. 
     
    Now, Rebecca's only mission is simple: survive the night. 
     
    Perfect for any fan of slasher films such as Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and House of 1,000 Corpses. 
     
    What Readers Are Saying: 
    "This book brought back the best parts about the old slasher movies, but with a new twist and a great ending. This one will keep you guessing all the way to the very end." - J. Scott Sharp 
     
    "This story is gritty, visceral, and it takes you on one hell of memorable ride. The tale breathes new life into the classic slasher genre and carves out a very sadistic experience for the reader." - Jeremy Megargee 
     
    "This is my new favorite book! I could not put it down!" - Meghan Cowhan

    Author Q&A: 
    Tell us about The Witness. 
    The Witness is my second book and was highly influenced by my love for the classic slasher films from the 70's and 80's. If you're a fan of the good ole days of campy slasher horror, brought to us by legends such as Wes Craven or John Carpenter, then I think you'll enjoy The Witness. 
     
    What can readers expect? 
    A high body count (laughs). The book has some pretty grotesque scenes without going too far over the edge. It's not 'torture porn.' The gory scenes have meaning and purpose, and the overall story is suspenseful. 
     
    Who is this book for? 
    As I mentioned before, this book was highly influenced by old school slasher horror. So, if you're a fan of Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes or The Devil's Rejects, then you'll enjoy The Witness. 
     
     
    ***WARNING*** The Witness is meant for mature audiences only. It features some graphic descriptions of violence and death including cannibalism and torture. If you are not used to reading extreme horror or watching slasher films, this may not be the book for you. Please purchase at your own discretion.

And perhaps too in the expression in his eyes, which is perfection to Society beauties such as the glamorous widow, Lady Isobel Dalton, who pursues him avidly and with some success.But although he needs to marry to prevent his scheming and dishonourable cousin, Jason, from stepping into his shoes, he resists Lady Isobel’s desperate hints at marriage as she fancies herself as a Duchess.When a craven pawnbroker, Emmanuel Pinchbeck, approaches him for money to redeem several of his family heirlooms, which it seems that his young cousin, Lady Alvina, has been selling off secretly, he is outraged. But, arriving at a closed-up Harling Castle in the country, he finds not a devious dishonest woman but a beautiful yet tormented young lady who, unaware of the family’s huge wealth, is in dire financial straits as well as his whole ancestral estate. The Duke is determined to find out how she has been so cruelly misled. And along the way he finds the love that he has always dreamt of finding – but not before the spectre of death steps into his path.
