Nothing Lasting
by Glen Krisch

About the Book:
Twenty-five years ago, Noah Berkley's childhood was stolen from him.

Twenty-five years ago, he lost the first and only love of his life.

Twenty-five years ago, someone died at his hand.

Only now—after all these years and spurred by the death of his father—does Noah Berkley believe he can face the memories he buried in the winter of 1984.

But sometimes memories aren't the only things we recover when we reopen the wounds of the past...

The Book of Baby Names
by Norman Prentiss

About the Book:
Sandra picked up the dull, saddle-stitched book. The child on the cover laughed, a mischievous gleam in her eyes. Water stains on the front cover blurred the outline of some of the child's teeth, making a few look sharp, like an animal's. But the girl laughed, so everything was okay.

Sandra didn't realize The Book of Baby Names was a work of fiction. And that the stories inside were horrifying....

* * *

This mini-collection from Bram Stoker Award-winner Norman Prentiss contains six tales about sinister or endangered children. Features two never-before-published stories, "The Baby Truck" and "The Well-Adjusted Child," along with a new Foreword/Afterword that places all the tales in an additional disturbing context.

Ugly
by Mick Garris

Cover Artwork by Tomislav Tikulin

About the Book:
Being a doctor empowers you in ways civilians cannot imagine, and Terry has helped the rich and famous of Hollywood stay young and perfect for years past their prime. He thinks he's seen everything, but he hasn't seen someone like Brittany before.

I turned around in slow motion, reeling, and saw the repellent creature behind the counter staring at me. Even more repulsive, she was starting to smile. Her teeth were horrifically staggered.

"Maybe you should stay," she said, happily.

I tried to shake my head, but it just jerked spastically. I tried to speak, but my tongue was thick and my lips couldn't form the words. I just gulped and floundered like a goldfish dumped from its bowl onto the floor. And then this creature shambled out from behind the counter and crossed the room, her shadow growing as she grew closer until it dev

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 & Reviews:
"Gorman's a master of this kind of story. People aren't what they seem, and Gorman can make even the worst of them seem almost human. There's a special kind of darkness that's revealed as the story goes along, and Gorman manages it well. The setting is winter, and the weather plays a part in the story. It's done so well that you might want to wrap up in your Snuggi

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...

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.
