Summary

Since 1908, when an object from space exploded over Siberia and caused the Tunguska blast, that same region has been the frequent site of multiple space object impacts. And yet, very little research has been done on the objects or the blasts. 
In 2030, a Russian miner discovers something in a coal mine beneath the location of the 1947 Sikhote Alinsk explosion in Siberia. What at first was thought to be an unexploded WWII bomb is revealed to be something else entirely. The Russians shut the site down, conduct a massive military buildup, and launch some cover story about a mining accident. 
American scientist Anita Raymie isn't buying it. She and her handsome boss, CIA agent Gary Dannon, and their US government team of scientists are ordered to investigate. The White House very much wants to know what the Russians are doing. 
As Anita and her team study surveillance and satellite data from the mine area, she discovers an eyewitness to the Sikhote Alinsk event, Russian defector Michael Antelov, who is still alive and living in America. She meets him and learns what he saw in 1947, and this leads to Anita presenting her findings to the U.S. president and secretary of defense. 
In the midst of all these developments, Anita and Gary are forced to acknowledge romantic feelings for one another. But that will have to wait, because the team finds that the Russians are hiding an object that is definitely not a World War 2 bomb. Russian archeologists and scientists study the find and discover that it is an object not from earth. It's a suspended animation case that is keeping its alien occupant alive.

    A founding father of the American conservative movement, Russell Kirk (1918–94) was also a renowned and bestselling writer of fiction. Kirk’s focus was the ghost story, or “ghostly tale” – a “decayed art” of which he considered himself a “last remaining master.” Old House of Fear, Kirk’s first novel, revealed this mastery at work. Its 1961 publication was a sensation, outselling all of Kirk’s other books combined, including The Conservative Mind, his iconic study of American conservative thought. A native of Michigan, Kirk set Old House of Fear in the haunted isles of the Outer Hebrides, drawing on his time in Scotland as the first American to earn a doctorate of letters from the University of St. Andrews. The story concerns Hugh Logan, an attorney sent by an aging American industrialist to Carnglass to purchase his ancestral island and its castle called the Old House of Fear. On the island, Logan meets Mary MacAskival, a red-haired ingénue and love interest, and the two face off against Dr. Edmund Jackman, a mystic who has the island under his own mysterious control. This new edition features an introduction by James Panero, Executive Editor of The New Criterion.

    In Riverton Falls, a small New England town, globe-trotting bartender Celeste Fortune stands in her kitchen puzzling over last night’s frightening dream—a woman at a window, lilacs blowing in the breeze, someone’s hands tight around her neck. Celeste is sure the dream belongs to someone else. Perhaps she has finally broken through to the collective dreams of Dreamland cult. Hoping her therapist and cult leader will help her untangle it, she heads off into the cold November morning to her final appointment with him—or so she hopes. Her estranged fiancé has delivered an ultimatum: Leave the cult of Dreamers, or end their relationship for good.
    
    Instead of help, however, Celeste discovers her therapist dying in a pool of blood, skull stove in by his own healing crystal. His computer, containing the intimate dreams and secrets of half the town, is gone. Suspicion immediately falls on Celeste, known to be a rebellious member of his cult. To clear her name, Celeste enlists the help of her old friend, Gloria, and the two women set out to find the real culprit. But in the middle of their hunt, the stolen dreams seemingly come to life, terrifying the town—and Celeste and Gloria become the killer’s next target.
