The Passage (TV Tie-In Edition) (#1 Passage)

The Passage (TV Tie-In Edition) (#1 Passage)

Justin Cronin

$18.95
"It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born."

An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy - abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape - but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

Praise for The Passage:

"[A] blockbuster." — The New York Times Book Review

"Mythic storytelling." — San Francisco Chronicle

"Magnificent... Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them... The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King’s apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: a story about human beings trying to generate new hope in a world from which all hope has long since been burnt." — Time

"The type of big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night." — The Dallas Morning News

"Addictive." — Men’s Journal

"Cronin’s unguessable plot and appealing characters will seize your heart and mind." — Parade

Origin (#1 Origin)

Origin (#1 Origin)

J. A. Konrath

$14.95
In 1906, a crew of workers at the Panama Canal unearthed something that could not be identified or explained. Something sinister. And very much alive...
 
One hundred years later, a team of scientists gather at an underground facility in New Mexico to determine what this being is - the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind - and how it has managed to survive. A biologist will analyze its structure. A veterinarian will study its behavior. A linguist will translate its language. But even the greatest minds in the world can not answer one inescapable question: Could this ancient creature, this mockery of God and nature, actually be the ancient demon known as... the Beast?

Sherlock Holmes and the Miskatonic Monstrosities (#2 Cthulhu Casebooks)

Sherlock Holmes and the Miskatonic Monstrosities (#2 Cthulhu Casebooks)

James Lovegrove

$16.99
The stunning new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Age of Odin, in which the worlds of Arthur Conan Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft collide.

It is the spring of 1895, and more than a decade of combating eldritch entities has cost Dr John Watson his beloved wife Mary, and nearly broken the health of Sherlock Holmes. Yet the companions do not hesitate when they are called to the infamous Bedlam lunatic asylum, where they find an inmate speaking in R'lyehian, the language of the Old Ones. Moreover, the man is horribly scarred and has no memory of who he is.

The detectives discover that the inmate was once a scientist, a student of Miskatonic University, and one of two survivors of a doomed voyage down the Miskatonic River to capture the semi-mythical shoggoth. Yet how has he ended up in London, without his wits? And when the man is taken from Bedlam by forces beyond normal mortal comprehension, it becomes clear that there is far more to the case than one disturbed Bostonian. It is only by learning what truly happened on that fateful New England voyage that Holmes and Watson will uncover the truth, and learn who is behind the Miskatonic monstrosity...

Faces in the Dark: A Collection of Paranoid Horror

Faces in the Dark: A Collection of Paranoid Horror

Set Sytes

$22.99
A collection of short stories of paranoid horror.

A girl begins to question why she and her parents wear monstrous masks they have never, ever taken off, though she may have been better off not knowing. An insomniac spends every night watched by a dark, silent figure in the bedroom, and while this figure disappears by morning, he seems to be growing stronger and bolder. It turns out that when things go missing, spidery little creatures with the missions of disarray and madness, gathering and harvesting are to blame; humanity has deeply wronged them, and between their antics they've been planning a much more sinister revenge. These and several other horror stories await in Set Sytes's new collection, which includes The Violet Dark, an unsettling, dreamy (or nightmare-y, rather) novella revolving around an addictive drink.

Eddie is certain a haunted castle is just the setting Ben needs to find inspiration for a horror film.

But what they find is more horrific than any movie. Something is waiting for them in the castle. A malevolent being has been trapped for nearly a century. And he's ready to feed.

The Greatest Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson

The Greatest Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson ,  Herman Graf

$27.95
The Best Short Works of One of English Literature's Most Masterful Storytellers Collected in a Single Volume Known mostly for his seminal full-length works, such as the famous classics Treasure Island and Kidnapped, Robert Louis Stevenson's masterful short fiction is often overshadowed. Now these pioneering works in the English short story tradition are presented here, collected in a single volume.

Including the beloved novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which G. K. Chesterton called a double triumph, and The Merry Men, as well as stories like The Suicide Club and The Rajah's Diamond from the acclaimed 1882 collection New Arabian Nights, The Greatest Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson immerses you in Stevenson's extraordinary worlds--thrilling tales of pure adventure and suspense, glorious evocations of the beauty of the Scottish countryside, and characters painted with the same vigor and energy as his most well-known creations.

Showcasing his brilliant and lucid prose, his dramatic skill, and his perfect sense of pace that made him a celebrity during his time and a landmark author in the history of English literature, Stevenson's enduring stories continue to capture the imagination of the contemporary reader and rightly belong to popular mythology today.
