The Night of the Triffids
by Simon Clark

About the Book:
The Day of the Triffids, John Wyndham's classic bestseller, is one man's description of doomsday: almost the entire population has gone blind, and the world has a new master—the monstrous triffid plant. The novel ends with its narrator, Bill Masen, leaving the British mainland with his wife and son to join a new colony on the Isle of Wight.

In The Night of the Triffids, which takes place in the 29th year since the fall of the old world, David Masen, Bill's now grown–up son, wakes one morning to discover that the world has been plunged into darkness. The few sighted people have their artificial lights, but once more the triffid has the advantage. Setting off to find the cause of the darkness, David finds himself stranded.

Eventually rescued and taken to New York, he discovers a very different sort of colony, prosperous and technologically advanced. But this sophist

Backshot (1902)
by Ed Gorman

About the Book:
In the tradition of Charles Willeford's western noirs, Ed Gorman gives us the mining town of Granite Bend, where mining interests run the often violent lives of its citizens as we see first-hand when the fates of Marshal Royce and a young drifter intersect. Gorman's portrait of the West is a real one, not a mythic one. He paints the people and their era with page-turning incidents of brutality and intrigue offering us compelling monsters and victims alike.

Praise for works of Ed Gorman:
"A western for grownups written in a lean, hardboiled style."
Publishers Weekly

"A powerful tale (and a gripping coming of age story)."
Booklist

"A gripping story. Gorman's style is just right—terse, sharp, not a superfluous word. Recommended."

Backshot (2012)
by Tom Piccirilli

About the Book:
Only one gig had gone bad in Royce's twenty-year career, but it had ended just about as badly as possible, with his back broken and him in jail.

A specialist said it would be a year before he'd walk again, if then. Royce took this news as a personal challenge and let his concentration begin to harden. He fixed his will and figured he'd be on his feet in six months. He set a clock inside his head and started the countdown.

At night, when everyone else was asleep, Royce practiced with the two-inch blade he had smuggled in with him. He'd always been good with a knife.

Now Royce just had to get back on his feet and stay alive, and then he could have his revenge...

Praise for Tom Piccirilli:

About the Book:
Roger Tinker is an evil genius with a machine that can work a terrible miracle...

When Leyna Shaw awoke, she was aware that something was different — terribly different. First she looked down at her tall, lovely body and saw no change. Then she looked around the room. It took her a moment to recognize it.

Bastion (Cemetery Dance Novella Series #25)

Cemetery Dance Novella SeriesCover and interior artwork by Alan M. Clark

About the Book:
I didn't know where I was or why I was there. I didn't even know my own name.

The first thing I heard was a boy shouting at me. He was about sixteen, had sticky-up ginger hair, freckles like a spatter of brown gravy over his face, and these huge green eyes that were full of fury.

The rush of the arrival disorientated me so much I couldn't even understand what he was yelling at me. At least, not at first.

My face burned. My eyes were sore.

At least I was awake. The dream was over.
