Summary

Eden by dutch writer J. Sharpe - who is often compared with Stephen King, Peter Straub and Dean Koontz - is a apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel which was nominated for a Bastaard Fantasy Award in 2016. 
Angels: they’re among us. I would know. There’s one trapped inside of me. But the image you probably have of these “helpers of God” is wrong, I guarantee it. They are all maniacal assholes. 
Anna Meisner awakes, naked and afraid, tied to a chair in a dark room. Across from her sits a woman who is her spitting image. With tears in her eyes, the woman puts a gun against her head and kills herself. Anna is not found until days later and in a state of hypothermia, moments from dying. But when she wakes in the hospital, she finds that the police doesn’t see her as a victim, but as a suspect. It’s the beginning of a series of catastrophic events in which she has no choice but to to play a part. Is this the end of humanity?

    An almost-been in his twenties, former actor Orson Beck can barely afford rent and child support on the pittance he earns at the grocery store job that was supposed to be temporary. His ex-wife left him for a more successful actor, and he’s too broke to be the kind of father he wants to be. 
     
    Orson is about to give up his dreams of stardom and focus on being a single dad when he receives a mysterious invitation in the mail: he’s been nominated for the Onyx List, an honor that could revive his career … or kill it forever. 
     
    When Orson makes the cut, his sudden success forces him to question every story he’s ever told himself about who he is. He isn’t sure what he really wants anymore -- but the ultrapowerful agents who’ve taken him on are already working behind the scenes to make sure he gets it, no matter what the cost. 
     
    By the time Orson realizes that his agents see his friends and family as obstacles to his success and have been working behind the scenes to isolate him, it’s too late to object to being a pawn in their Hollywood games.
     
    As his newfound fame and fortune grows, will Orson destroy everyone he’s ever loved to keep it?

    I am in prison awaiting trial for the murder of my wife's lover... My version of what occurred is so utterly fantastic that it is certain to be taken as an attempt by me to show that I am mad. But the doctors have already agreed that I am sane; so for myself I see no escape from the gallows. Nevertheless, I swear by Almighty God that all I am about to dictate into a recording machine is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. 
     
    With Sir Gifford Hillary and Wing Commander Johnny Norton involved in plans to counter the might of Soviet Russia, interest soon centres on the evil Lady Ankaret and the tragedy which occurred at Longshot Hall, South Hampshire, on the night of the 9th September. A victim is struck down, and from that moment onwards the events which follow seem, at first, fantastic and unbelievable–but are later realised to be entirely logical. What does happen after death? And why should Sir Gifford find himself in prison, on trial for his life?

    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.
