Twenty years ago, the dead destroyed the world of the living. The survivors scattered in the wake of the Scourge, erecting small towns in the worlds' most sparsely populated areas.

For young Gabriel, the walking dead are merely the memories that haunt the eyes of those old enough and lucky enough to have survived. He is more concerned with his hard life in America's desert, where his chores keep him busy and the husks of books stashed beneath the cellar of the library are his only freedom.

Until the circus comes to town.

"Circus of the Dead" is a novelette of approximately 10,748 words.

Fifty years after a stormy sea swallowed Spencer Chadwick at the treacherous Devil's Churn, his old sweetheart, Addy, finds herself face-to-face with a past she hoped to forget. She fled Dory Cove after that fateful day and stayed away until now--until her mother's death draws her back. And now, in her mother's yard, she finds young Spence's lookalike.
Soon, the people of Dory Cove discover the impossible--Spence has returned. But what happened all those years ago, and what brought Spence back, will threaten to uncover long buried secrets. Secrets the people of Dory Cove fear will unleash a horrifying power from the sea--a power that might swallow the entire town before anyone can stop it.
In The Devil's Churn, bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch creates a terrifying world where the dark depths of the Pacific Ocean unleash a secret evil lurking among the crashing waves.

"...a remarkable amount of plot as well as beguiling characters."
--Publishers Weekly

[Rusch's horror novels are] horror in the same way that Robert Bloch's Psycho is--horror of the soul.

They said the bunkers would keep us safe from the Flense. They lied.

Three years ago, Finnian Bolles and his fellow apocalypse survivors fled to the safety of Bunker Eight. Three years spent in complete isolation from a devastated world consumed by a humanity-destroying plague. Three years avoiding the terrifying, nearly unstoppable, once-human creatures known as Wraiths.

Now an uninfected stranger appears at their front doorstep with extraordinary claims of a cure and clues to where it might be found: within a rumored twelfth bunker. Problem is, such a place isn't supposed to exist. With Humanity's fate resting in the balance, do they risk leaving their own bunker to search for another, possibly succumbing to a fate worse than death?

As disagreement splinters the group and violence breaks out, the horrifying truth begins to emerge about the real cause of the Flense and why it was released into the world. And the one among them who'll do anything to keep those secrets buried.

Even if it means unleashing the Flense against them.

Contain is the first book in the explosive post-apocalyptic thriller, BUNKER 12, a remarkable story of good versus evil, nature versus technology, and the will to survive in the face of the most devastating plague mankind has ever known.

DESCRIPTION:

"A remarkable tour de force" by the acclaimed author and philosopher--a classic science fiction "thriller with depth" for fans of 1984 and Brave New World (The New York Times).

After the psychological revolution opened humankind's minds to an all-new form of consciousness, society split in two. On the Earth's surface rules Alpha, the benevolent, all-powerful dictator who's constant ministrations have left his subjects undeniably happy and satisfied but also obedient and unquestioning.

Below the surface lies the kingdom of the Mole--the gloomy domain of an even darker and crueler leader. Embittered by his lot underground, he leads his people on a revolt against their obsequious overhead counterparts. And their ultimate weapon is nearly ready--a man who has been genetically and psychologically molded to be a near-perfect double of the Alpha. A covert agent who, once in place, could change the fate of both civilizations--and humanity itself--forever.

Both a brilliant examination of human identity, and a gripping science fiction narrative, Doppelgangers is a dystopian novel decades ahead of its time.

DESCRIPTION:

The Woman Under The White Tree

Frank Morris, a young man looking to enter into the Catholic priesthood, is offered the chance to accompany Father Michael Agnew on what he thinks will be a routine task. You know the sort of task priest's do, such as having tea and buns with old ladies too afraid to leave the house.

Frank quickly discovers he is wrong.

Father Agnew isn't like a typical member of the Church. Nor is the nature of his job.

In the rolling hills of the Northern Irish countryside, the Ballygore Road has the highest fatality rate in all of the United Kingdom. It's history and that of the land around it is long and bloody, stretching back to famine times. Having listened to those fortunate enough to survive; Father Agnew suspects that there is more to the accidental deaths that occur on the road than bad driving.

He believes it's haunted.

Frank Morris thinks the Father is joking. He thinks he's being pranked. Surely, there's no such thing as ghosts. Is there?

The Woman Under The White Tree is perfect for horror fans especially those that enjoy stories that feature two members of the Catholic priesthood, Ford Cortina's, exorcism, time travel and everything else but the kitchen sink. It is also the first story in the Father Michael Agnew series.

DESCRIPTION:

A small-town baker uses her magic to confront a post–vampire apocalypse world in this award-winning fantasy Neil Gaiman called "pretty much perfect."

Although it had been mostly deserted since the Voodoo Wars, there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years. Rae Seddon, nicknamed Sunshine, head baker at her family's busy and popular café in downtown New Arcadia, needed a place to get away from all the noise and confusion--of the clientele and her family. Just for a few hours. Just to be able to hear herself think.

She knew about the Others, of course. Everyone did. And several of her family's best regular customers were from SOF--Special Other Forces--which had been created to deal with the threat and the danger of the Others.

She drove out to her family's old lakeside cabin and sat on the porch, swinging her feet and enjoying the silence and the silver moonlight on the water.

She never heard them coming. Of course, you don't when they're vampires.

Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sookie Stackhouse will cheer for this tough and quirky heroine. In Sunshine, which won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature, McKinley has a vampire novel that is "a smart, funny tale of suspense and romance" (San Francisco Chronicle).

DESCRIPTION:

Something evil lurks in the woods, on the outskirts of town. It lives in the shadows and strikes without warning, always with the same objective: to mutilate, kill and devour its victim.

It's a monster with a cannibalistic craving for human flesh, and a sexual appetite which seemingly cannot be satiated. No victim is left alive, and the scattered remains divulge very little to the police pathologist.

As the body count rises, the superintendent in charge of the investigation resorts to desperate measures. But soon, it becomes obvious that the police have woefully underestimated their suspect. A mistake which will cost them dearly.

DESCRIPTION:

Horror/thriller takes readers into the mind of Adrian, forced to walk the earth with a curse of "cold blood" as he attempts to adapt to his new separate world full of violent consequences. This book is graphic, morbid, romantic, and full of intensely contrasted concepts.

If you're a reader that prefers a traditional or mechanical approach to composition, this book isn't going to follow it, as it progresses through a first person thought process more so than a strict literary style or system. The story is just as much internal as it is external.

Some patients never leave...

No one expects to visit a hospital for a non-life-threatening injury only to never leave again.

Merci Hospital, one of the oldest in the county, has served countless patients. However, something is now very odd about the place as some who are admitted report seeing things that are not there and others never get to talk about it.

Catherine Lucene is fairly new at Merci, a highly regarded nurse whose reputation for excellence and compassion in healthcare precedes her. She gradually becomes aware of the inexplicably sinister happenings at the hospital, but the underlying cause of it all evades her. Will Catherine's determination to uncover the truth help preserve the lives of those not yet lost, including her own, or will her curiosity of the "unknown" propel her into a horrifying state-of-being she never knew existed?
