Summary

ALL ROYALTIES EARNED ON THIS TITLE ARE BEING DONATED TO THE ANNUAL DAKOTA 38+2 RIDE 
 
Viviana lived a quiet life in the city, studying and doing everything possible to ensure she was accepted into a good college. She never thought much about who she was or where she came from but all of that will change when her father dies in the line of duty and she is asked to do something she never thought imaginable, participate in the annual Dakota 38 + 2 Ride. It was something that absolutely terrified her but with the encouragement of her uncle and the guidance of her new friends, Dre and Hope, she will discover something within her she never knew existed. She will learn that culture and tradition live within one's heart and cannot be easily forgotten. Our spirit remembers our ancestors and beckons us to them, even if we are reluctant to go. Thirty Eight is a story of acceptance and love while finding one's way back home.

    Mars - Stories

    • 1
    A debut collection of darkly humorous, feminist speculative fiction from the Balkans, “sly, uncommon stories” by “a major talent” (Jeff VanderMeer, award-winning author of Hummingbird Salamander). 
     
    Mars showcases a series of unique and twisted universes, where every character is tasked with making sense of their strange reality. One woman will be freed from purgatory once she writes the perfect book; another abides in a world devoid of physical contact. With wry prose and skewed humor, an emerging feminist writer explores twenty-first century promises of knowledge, freedom, and power. 
     
    “Bakic’s stories are a dark delight—a treasury of forbidden pleasures, moments of resistance and resilience, and terrifying possibilities.” —Strange Horizons 
     
    “At turns funny, surreal, and grounded in simple language but flung through twisted realities, the stories in this collection are provocative and utterly readable.” —The Brooklyn Rail 
     
    “Skillfully disorienting.” —BUST 
     
    “There’s an immediacy to Bakic’s offbeat worldview, sometimes strange and surreal, sometimes terrifying and upsetting, that pairs perfectly with the madness of the current political moment.” —Locus Magazine 
     
    “Bosnian writer Bakic’s debut teems with the oddball narratives of George Saunders, the eerie atmosphere of Edgar Allan Poe, and the feminist intellect of Marge Piercyc. . . Told in a straightforward manner that transports speculative fiction into almost realist territory, Bakic’s collection imaginatively and strikingly examines sci-fi tropes from not only the point of view of women, but also from the voice of an effortlessly gifted writer whose future is much brighter than that of those depicted in her stories.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    Three nightmare-inducing classics of contemporary horror from the award-winning “master of the genre” (Rocky Mountain News).   As “the living inheritor of the realm of Edgar Allan Poe,” Graham Masterton takes his place alongside Stephen King and Peter Straub in the canon of contemporary horror authors. Here are three of his most memorable novels, all steeped in supernatural shocks, Lovecraftian creepiness, and Masterton’s own boldly original vision (San Francisco Chronicle).  The Manitou: A tumor growing on the back of a young woman’s neck is in fact a vengeful spirit attempting to reenter the world. This acclaimed debut novel was adapted into a film starring Tony Curtis, Susan Strasberg, and Burgess Meredith.   “A chilling tale.” —Kirkus Reviews  Charnel House: In this Edgar Award Finalist, a house in San Francisco is possessed by an ancient demon with an insatiable hunger for blood. As it threatens to escape from its prison, the hapless homeowner, a civil servant, and a Native American shaman are the only ones who can stop it.   “[A] horror stalwart . . . Masterton is capable of conjuring a spooky atmosphere and evoking chills from understated terrors.” —Publishers Weekly  The Hymn: In this masterwork of supernatural suspense, a man haunted by his fiancée’s suicide investigates a mysterious rash of sacrificial deaths in California and descends into a nightmare world of paranormal cults and Nazi terror. Originally published as The Burning.

    "The purpose, the illusion, the spirit of a waxworks. It is an atmosphere of death. It is soundless and motionless... Do you see?"
     
    Last night Mademoiselle Duchêne was seen heading into the Gallery of Horrors at the Musée Augustin waxworks, alive. Today she was found in the Seine, murdered. The museum's proprietor, long perturbed by the unnatural vitality of his figures, claims that he saw one of them following the victim into the dark—a lead that Henri Bencolin, head of the Paris police and expert of 'impossible' crimes, cannot possibly resist.
     
    Surrounded by the eerie noises of the night, Bencolin prepares to enter the ill-fated waxworks, his associate Jeff Marle and the victim's fiancé in tow. Waiting within, beneath the glass-eyed gaze of a leering waxen satyr, is a gruesome discovery and the first clues of a twisted and ingenious mystery.
     
    First published in 1932 at the height of crime fiction's Golden Age, this macabre and atmospheric dive into the murky underground of Parisian society presents an intelligent puzzle delivered at a stunning pace. This new edition also includes the rare Inspector Bencolin short story "The Murder in Number Four" by John Dickson Carr, and an Introduction by CWA Diamond Dagger-Award winning author Martin Edwards.
