DESCRIPTION:

THERE IS SOMETHING STRANGE HAPPENING IN PLACIDVILLE!

It is 1962. Kathy Anderson, a serious actress who took her training at the Actors Studio in New York, is stuck playing Vivacia, the Vampire Woman on Vivacia's House of Horrors for a local Chicago TV station.

Finally fed up showing old monster movies to creature feature fans, she quits and heads to New York and the fame and footlights of Broadway.

She stops off to visit her parents and old friends in Placidville, the all-Ameican, middle-class, blissfully normal Midwest small town she grew up in.

But she finds things are strange in Placidville.

Kathy's parents, her best friend from high school, the local druggist, even the Oberhausen twins are all acting curiously creepy, odiously odd, and wholly weird. Especially the town's super geeky nerd, Gerald, who warns of dark days ahead.

Has Kathy entered a zone in the twilight? Did she reach the limits that are outer? Has she fallen through a mirror that is black? Or is it just--just--politics as usual!

Hotel Destiny: A Ghost Noir by Raymond Benson

DESCRIPTION:

WHAT IF YOU, AS A GHOST, HAD TO SOLVE YOUR OWN MURDER?

From internationally acclaimed and New York Times best-selling author Raymond Benson comes a novel that is a ghost story with a distinctive noir sensibility mixed with David Lynchian surrealism.

The year is 1985. Manhattan's Times Square area is sleazy, and the streets are full of what Coleman Sackler calls "New York Street Skunk." Cole is the night manager and self-proclaimed hotel detective for the transient Hotel Destiny, which has been plagued with scandals over the century, including several murders, gangster occupation and ownership, and fleabag status during the 1960s and 70s. Five recent slayings in the building have been attributed to--the police believe--one killer.

During the gala grand re-opening Halloween party, Cole Sackler himself is murdered by a masked man. But hold on! Cole "awakes" and is still in the hotel--as a ghost. Prior to his death, a mysterious woman had told him that hidden portals located throughout the building can lead one to other time periods, and that the key to Cole's destiny is in the hotel's past and embedded in its many secrets.

Thus, Cole's spirit sets out to solve his own murder by dropping in on living characters throughout Hotel Destiny's history and observing and/or interacting with them. His goal is to discover the identity of his killer, as well as learn the ironic truth about his own family, his heritage, and himself!

*****

"No matter how hard I tried to get a jump on the author, he was always ten maddening steps ahead of me. HOTEL DESTINY is a cocktail more potent than any you've ever enjoyed – a mix of murder mystery in the best noir tradition, and a ghost story that's one-hundred proof. By the time I'd finished it off, I was still reeling from the effects!" -Robert Masello, author of THE HAUNTING OF H. G. WELLS


"Raymond Benson has crafted a twisty, ghostly, historical detective noir mystery, rich in place and time, and utterly unique. Highly recommended!" -Tori Eldridge, Anthony and Lefty-nominated author of THE NINJA'S BLADE


"I had a great stay at HOTEL DESTINY. Raymond Benson displays yet another facet of his formidable storytelling talent in this mind-bending, time-bending mystery. It's a haunting novel in more ways than one, so expect to lose some sleep -- while reading, and afterward." -Steve Goble, author of the SPIDER JOHN historical pirate mysteries


"Hardboiled, frightening, and deeply mysterious, HOTEL DESTINY is a highly entertaining throwback to the days of fun in fiction. Benson delivers a novel where a thousand unlikely things happen, yet the reader never questions, never doubts, and always understands. This is how you know you are in the hands of a master plotter." -Darren Callahan, award-winning playwright, novelist, and filmmaker

Only the Devil Is Here by Stephen Michell

Only the Devil Is HereStephen Michell

NEW RELEASE

Available at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

"A gripping, cinematic supernatural thriller, shot through with unsettling imagery and startling insights into the nature of good and evil." --David Demchuk, Sunburst Award–winning author of The Bone Mother

Kidnapped from his foster home, six-year-old Evan desperately searches for a way to escape his brutally violent captor, Rook. Armed with supernatural abilities, Rook is no ordinary man, but then Evan is no ordinary boy. And it soon becomes clear that on their frantic journey through a world teeming with unimaginable horrors and unnatural predators, Rook is Evan's only hope for survival . . .

"With Only the Devil Is Here, Stephen Michell announces himself as a new and powerful presence on the literary horror scene. This is curt, violent, poetic storytelling, a Cormac McCarthyesque journey from darkness into even deeper darkness, suffused from moment one on with gothic nighttime awe and terror yet also shot through with the slimmest threads of hope--intimations of numinosity, if not of salvation." --Gemma Files, Shirley Jackson Award–winning author of Spectral Evidence

"Michell subtly upends expectations with a genuinely insightful examination of the essence of good and evil. By the novel's end, Michell delivers an invigorating chase story, a suspenseful horror-action hybrid with memorably warped characters, and terrific B-movie cinematic flair." --Publishers Weekly

"How Rook acquired his superhuman strength and came to accept his unholy mission are just two of the many revelations Michell has in store for readers. Better still is the poignant father-son relationship that slowly builds between Rook and the orphaned Evan, who is also gifted with supernatural powers. A very promising debut from a new author to watch." --Toronto Star
