DESCRIPTION:

This Bram Stoker Award–winning collection is “certain to stick in your mind long after you’ve turned the last page” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
 
Includes “Big Momma,” a finalist for the International Thriller Writers Award for Best Short Story
 
Here are six of Joyce Carol Oates’s most “frightening—and deeply disturbing—short stories” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). In the titular story, a boy becomes obsessed with his cousin’s doll after her tragic death. As he grows older, he begins to collect “found dolls” from surrounding neighborhoods . . . each with its own sinister significance.
 
In “Gun Accident,” a teenage girl is delighted to house-sit for her favorite teacher, until an intruder forces his way inside—changing more than one life forever. The collection closes with the taut tale of a mystery bookstore owner whose designs on a rare bookshop in scenic New Hampshire devolve into a menacing game with real-life consequences. “At the heart of each story is a predator-prey relationship, and what makes them so terrifying is that most of us can easily picture ourselves as the prey, at least at some time during our lives” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune).
 
“Everything she writes, in whatever genre, has an air of dread, because she deals in vulnerabilities and inevitabilities, in the desperate needs that drive people . . . to their fates. A sense of helplessness is the essence of horror, and Oates conveys that feeling as well as any writer around.” —Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times Book Review
 
“One of the stranger parts of the human condition may be our deep fascination, and at times troubling exploration, of the darker aspects of our nature . . . No other author explores the ugly, and at times, blazingly unapologetic underbelly of these impulses quite like Joyce Carol Oates in The Doll-Master.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“In her new collection . . . [Oates] relishes moments of gothic melodrama, while rooting them firmly in grindingly ordinary American lives.” —The Guardian
 
“Oates convincingly demonstrates her mastery of the macabre with this superlative story collection . . . This devil’s half-dozen of dread and suspense is a must read.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Venislarn. Vastly intelligent aliens from another dimension or dribbling insane gods from a distant realm? It's impossible to tell. What's certain is that they're here and they're going to destroy our world.

The consular mission to the Venislarn are the god appeasers and the end of life carers for an oblivious planet. It may be the end of the world as we know it but there are procedures and policies in place and everything should go according to plan.
But, in the city, someone's buying souls door to door, dealing the kind of magical drugs that guarantee a really, really bad trip and, if something isn't done about it, the end of the world might just happen a lot sooner than planned.
Sequel to the hilarious ‘Oddjobs', this is a workplace comedy like no other, featuring face-eating grannies, telepathic spiders, bloodthirsty school kids, murder on the dancefloor, sex-crazed pondlife, and actual stockbrokers from hell.
The weekend can't come soon enough (if it comes at all).

Mike is a tattoo artist running his own shop, and Deb is the piercing artist he hires to round out the motley crew at his studio of four. The last thing either expects is romance, but that's exactly what happens when they follow their off-kilter careers and love lives into complete disaster.

When Mike follows a growing trend and tattoos the ashes of deceased loved ones into several customers' tattoos, he has no idea that it will one day provide the solution--and solace--he will sorely need. And when the life of a serial killer tragically collides with the lives of those in the tattoo shop, Mike and Deb will stop at nothing in their quest for revenge, even if it means stepping outside the known boundaries of life and death.

Ink that is full of crematory ashes, a sociopathic killer, and pain in its most raw form combine for one of the most imaginative, haunting thrillers in recent memory. Full of wit and heart, A Good and Useful Hurt delivers the goods with the pain of a needle in skin.

DESCRIPTION:

From the author of Wolfheart and Blood Moon Carnival comes a relentless, pulse-pounding, mystery thriller that grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go until the very last page.
Sometimes when life closes a door, it opens a window ... to hell.

Michael Drake came to the quaint seaside town of Fairfield Bay to build condos, and found the girl of his dreams.

Amanda--a beautiful, emerald-eyed, raven-haired mystery woman, way out of his league, soon to be his wife.

Then, one Halloween night during a violent thunderstorm, Amanda answers the phone, and a freak lightning surge stops her heart cold, plunging her into a coma.

When she awakens, she's not the same woman Michael fell in love with ... not the woman he planned to marry.

According to the local neurologist, Doctor Hammond, the tragic accident damaged the delicate neural pathways of Amanda's brain, plaguing her with a litany of bizarre side effects, and altering her personality, maybe forever.

According to the local librarian, Miss Wadsworth, something more sinister is at play. An evil spirit, lurking in the musty attic of Amanda and Michael's antique Colonial, has at last found a portal into this world, and a human vessel in which to unleash its fury.

Michael just wants his fiancée back. And he'll do whatever it takes to save her.

Even if it means following her down a deep, dark hole of pain and suffering to the very bowels of hell.

Some vampires are destined for greatness. He's not one of them.

When truckstop diner cook and mediocre bowler Herb Knudsen becomes a vampire, his once simple life gets a bit more complicated.

Herb's not even sure how it happened. He wasn't bitten by a vampire, which means there's no one around to help him learn the ropes. With no one to guide him, Herb fumbles into his newfound abilities, courting disaster with every step.

Despite learning each new lesson the hard way, being a vampire isn't all bad. He's stronger, a little sexier, and a heck of a lot better at bowling. Even Lois, the girl of his dreams, is starting to notice him. But he can't drink beer, the bodies are piling up, and his best friend Dallas isn't just getting suspicious – he's getting jealous.

When Lois is caught in the middle of the two friends' escalating rivalry, keeping his dark secret becomes the least of Herb's concerns.

Booze, bowling, bake sales, bar fights, babes, blood and karaoke... Who would have thought that being undead would make life so exciting?


About the Monsters in the Midwest series:

Herb, Dallas, and Stanley live in northern Wisconsin, where life is nice and simple.

Until Herb becomes a vampire.
And Dallas becomes a werewolf.
And Stanley becomes a zombie.

Join the three friends on their hilariously awkward journeys as they learn that there really are monsters in the Midwest, and that's not always a bad thing.
