    Burned out and drugged up, Alec LeGuerrier spends his days faking it, barely eking out an existence while living in a haze of confusion and medicated mellowness. That is, until he stops a gang of nightmarish oddities from killing a strange young woman with indigo eyes. Dragged into the lands of the dreaming, he must come to terms with his brutal past and his grim imagined future in a land his body knows is real, but his mind refuses to acknowledge. 
    From Cliff Jones, Jr. "Dreampunk" Community Leader: 
    "What actually happens when we dream? We can only remember bits and pieces here and there, leaving the vast depths of the dreamworld completely unknown to our waking minds. We know it's important somehow, but we don't know why. 
    Urban Gothic is a deep dive into the unconscious dreamworld of Alec LeGuerrier, an archetypal warrior battling his inner demons for the fate of his soul. In the mundane world, he's a veteran struggling with PTSD, chemically subdued and cut off from his own dreams. But in that other place, he can be so much more. 
    If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman (especially Neverwhere and The Sandman) or other modern #dreampunk writers like Jeb Sherrill and Yelena Calavera, then you should definitely check this one out. It's a quick read with a heavy heart, in the best possible way."

    Explore the counterearth of Gor—where men enslave women and science fiction and fantasy combine—in the latest installment of the long-running Gorean Saga.  A mysterious package lies unclaimed somewhere in the great port of Brundisium, and it is rumored that its contents could determine the fate of a world. Whether or not that is true, one thing is certain: Men and beasts will kill to claim it. Meanwhile, a young woman, now merchandise, has been brought to the slave markets of Gor after displeasing a stranger in her secretarial job back on Earth. Unbeknownst to her, she holds the key to finding the elusive package—and changing the course of history forever. Inspired by works like Edgar Rice Burroughs’s John Carter of Mars novels and Robert E. Howard’s Almuric, this adventure series—alternatively referred to by several names including  the Chronicles of Counter-Earth or the Saga of Tarl Cabot—has earned a devoted following for its richly detailed world building, erotic themes, and mash-up of science fiction, fantasy, history, and philosophy. Plunder of Gor is the 34th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    “A brilliant, perceptive, and deeply moving fable.” —Boston Sunday Globe  Publishers Weekly calls Gregory Maguire’s Lost “a deftly written, compulsively readable modern-day ghost story.” Brilliantly weaving together the literary threads of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, and the Jack the Ripper stories, the bestselling author of The Wicked Years canon creates a captivating fairy tale for the modern world. With Lost, Maguire—who re-imagined a darker, more dangerous Oz, and inspired the creation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway blockbuster Wicked—delivers a haunting tale of shadows and phantoms and things going bump in the night, confirming his reputation as “one of contemporary fiction’s most assured myth-makers” (Kirkus Reviews).

    A dragon shifter miner, a human mining inspector, and one shut down mine. What can go wrong? 
    If it weren’t for bad luck, safety expert, Nessa Caspian, wouldn’t have any luck at all. Two accidents one month apart killed her assistant and injured another employee. Just when Nessa thinks things can’t get worse, an explosion traps her in the mine. Really? If she hadn’t been a dragon shifter, capable of clawing her way out, she’d be dead too! 
    When she learns the mining inspector, Kyle Harper, has to shut down her family’s mine because of all the safety issues, she’s livid—that is until she realizes the super hot man is her future mate. Well crap. Now what is she supposed to do? Bite him? 
    Kyle hates dragon shifters. After all, one nearly killed his sister. When he meets the highly tantalizing and intelligent Nessa though, all his preconceived notions fly out the window. Part of him wants to ravish her and the other part wants to keep her at arm’s length. 
    Only when danger strikes close to home do the two adversaries realize that if they don’t work together, it could be fatal for both of them.
