Rick Dempsey's Caught Stealing: Unbelievable Stories From a Lifetime of Baseball

Dreamlike States: Six Stories
by Brian James Freeman

Featuring an exclusive introduction by Ed Gorman and original interior illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne

About the Book:
This collection by Brian James Freeman features six dark stories that are a little different from his other works. Some focus on unusual characters and some are simply told in unusual ways. The last two are closely linked pieces, although the connection is hidden under the surface.

* When Sam discovers the jogger dying in the middle of the road in "As She Lay There Dying," he isn't ready for what she has to tell him: Sammy, we can't run anymore. He

Chills
by Rick Hautala

About the Book:
A blizzard is slamming into Vermont, but it doesn't matter to Meg Clarke. She knows she'll be trapped in her music store in the shopping mall overnight with a small crew of her employees doing one final inventory.

But after they're locked in for the night, they realize this isn't a normal winter storm. Ghastly faces appear in the store windows and disappear in a swirl of wind-blown snow. Dark, mysterious figures loom in and out of sight in the darkened corridors of the mall. Ghostly voices shriek inside the howling blasts of winter wind. Soon Meg and the others are besieged by something too terrifying to imagine.

Before the night is over, a terrible secret from Meg's past will come back to haunt her and the group's only chance to survive will be to go out into the raging storm that's trying to kill them...

Jack & Jill
by Kealan Patrick Burke

About the Book:
When they were kids, Gillian and John used to visit the local cemetery every Sunday after church. It was a curious place for children to frequent, but they had their reasons. The main attraction was the lofty hill that separated the cemetery from the elementary school, and the act of tumbling down it like Jack and Jill was a ritualistic escape from the abuse they were suffering at their father's hands.
 
It was an escape that lasted only until John's tragic death.
 
Now, Gillian is all grown up. Married with two children, she has managed over the years to force the trauma of her nightmarish childhood into the darkest recesses of her mind.
 
But lately...
 
Lately there are dreams, and in them Gillian sees impossibly vivid reenactments of the horrors she endured as a child. Nightly, she sees John die all over again, only not in the way she remembers.

Vortex
by Ray Garton

Featuring cover and interior artwork by Russell Dickerson

About the Book:
Karen Moffett and Gavin Keoph are outstanding private investigators hired by Martin Burgess, a Stephen King-like blockbuster horror writer with money to burn, who wants to know if any of the supernatural stuff he writes about has any basis in reality.

He wants to send Karen and Gavin to California's Mt. Shasta, a mecca for New Agers and all manner of spiritual seekers. Mt. Shasta is said to be a "vortex" of various kinds of energy — magnetic, spiritual, and "unknown." The activity there supposedly includes alien visitations, ghosts, strange physical phenomena, and Lemurians, the little people from Atlantis who are said to live inside the mountain...

All of this sounds too fantastic to be true, of course, but Karen and Gavin are going to learn the very strange truth about Mt. Shasta... the question is, will they
