Summary

A serial killer in Japan is chopping off heads. An unlikely pair of journalists try not to lose theirs. 
Akio Tsukino takes nice photos for the Dainichi Daily in Tokyo. So nice he's sick of it. He's ready to take on something more challenging, even if it kills him. 
Masami Sato, a top staff writer on the police beat, is a tenacious woman going head to head with men in a male-dominated arena. Her latest story follows a serial killer collecting heads in the nearby city of Kofu. 
When Akio maneuvers his way onto the assignment, he's drawn by the opportunity of real recognition and the chance to work with Masami. It never occurs to him he'd find himself in the path of a monster.  
The investigation creeps into the dark and uncertain world of the paranormal, and ghost stories of evil samurai become the order of the day. Akio and Masami begin to wonder if the witnesses are all insane, or if the killer is even human. Trapped in the dungeons of an ancient castle ruin, they soon realize that the price for getting the story may be their own heads.

    Here’s a roadmap to Edge of Night. Welcome to an eclectic collection of nine short stories. 
    You’ve done time at the edge of night. Nail-biting, stomach-churning time filled with hissing snarls, menacing growls, the whoosh of unnatural wings, and the flash of hellfire. Time that lasts forever, but is over within seconds because time becomes unpredictable in places like that. You don’t want to stay, but it’s too fascinating—in a grisly, macabre, toe-curling kind of way—to turn your back on. You recognize it, though. The place just at the threshold of darkness where it’s not quite safe anymore. Evil broke its bounds at the edge of night, or maybe it always ran free and we’ve been deluding ourselves all along. 
    Join me for nine supernatural tales. Monsters, demons, gods—fallen and otherwise—ghosts, aliens. A touch of science fiction. More than a splash of romance. From magical lands to a chilling glance into the past, Edge of Night has something to tempt everyone. Everyone who craves danger, that is. It takes guts to read the stuff woven into nightmares. 
    It’s a tough job, but you’re up to it. 
    Welcome to my world. A world where magic holds court and the dude next door just might be a demon. Or a shifter. Or an alien.

    A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky. 
    Sarah Anderson loves her job at the supernatural night court of Washington DC—even though that means regularly consorting with vampires.

    Sure, she has a couple of problems, like any hard-working young urban professional. She can’t decide whether she wants to kiss her enigmatic vampire boss or to kill him. Her supernatural mentor insists the powers she longs to wield might actually kill her, if they don’t drive her mad first. 
    But someone is stalking Washington DC’s vampire elite. And when an ancient evil invades the actual courthouse, Sarah can’t hold back any longer. She must learn to embrace the magic within her…or die trying.

    Once Bitten . . . 
    One minute Leigh is walking home in the early hours of the morning, and the next a vampire is sinking his teeth into her neck. Turns out it was a rogue vampire marked for termination, but it does Leigh little good because the damage's already been done. She's become one of them. 
    Lucian Argeneau, hunter of rogue vampires, has been alive for over two thousand years, and there's very little to excite him anymore. Food has become tasteless, sex is ordinary. Then Leigh drops into his life. Suddenly he finds himself craving coffee . . . and imagining the sassy brunette atop the black satin sheets on his nice big bed. It's Lucian's job now to enlighten Leigh on the inner workings of being immortal . . . and tutoring her is igniting a fire in him that hasn't burned in centuries. 
    But until they stop a renegade bloodsucker from destroying the human race, passion will have to wait!

    "The Call of Cthulhu" is one of H. P. Lovecraft's best-known short stories. Written in the summer of 1926, it was first published in Weird Tales, February 1928. It is the only story written by Lovecraft in which the extraterrestrial entity Cthulhu himself makes a major appearance.
    
    It is written in a documentary style, with three independent narratives linked together by the device of a narrator discovering notes left by a deceased relative. The narrator pieces together the whole truth and disturbing significance of the information he possesses, illustrating the story's first line: "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity; and it was not meant that we should voyage far."

    Rome, the greatest empire the world has ever known, limitless in breadth and power, magnificent in its glory! But something evil, ancient and unknowable gnaws at the heart of the empire. Dark gods, trapped for centuries in thrice-warded tombs, have been disturbed by Roman plunderers. A secret war is fought daily between those who would harness this strange power for themselves, and those who fear it signals the very end of the empire. 
    Across the sea, roused from eternal slumber by a world awash with war, by omens and pagan slaughter, a Great Old One waits for the way to be opened. A cosmic terror that man was not meant to know. Those who know its name tremble, and only the very brave-or very foolish-incant it for their own ends. 
    They whisper it in darkness; they cry it from atop blasted hills; they scream it to the raging oceans. "Cthulhu…†?
