On Friday of Easter weekend in Juglan, Texas, many strange events distract from the festivities. Telephone service is sporadic and failing. Fires burn out of control. Police services are nonexistent. The dead and the dying accumulate on the streets. Before the village's clocktower chimes midnight, many of its citizens will perish and the city, itself, will lie in flaming ruins.
This is the terrible revenge of Nelson Sedgewick. For years preceding this heinous act, he has brooded within the ramshackle ruins of his lifelong obsession, his self-styled "Animal Emporium and Family Fun Circus". An unlicensed roadside attraction presenting animal performances during a period of declining support for such displays, the Emporium is emblematic of the pathological disconnect between reality and Sedgewick's mad dreams. Deceived by the grandeur of his visions and his own misplaced self-confidence, the would-be ringmaster invested heavily in his enterprise before it inevitably failed, and now he ...
Mothers no longer name their sons 'Adolph'. Almost everyone knows why.
Though all innocent babes do not develop into monsters, all monsters develop from innocent babes. We prefer fiction to reality, because thoughts of the former easily yield to denials of reason, while the latter only reminds us of our common origins in the primitive.
Steal a private moment now and listen to your inner voice. It whispers. Of rising mutant domination amid apocalyptic wastes; of grotesque human chimeras practicing ancient arts; of despicable capital criminals kept in unbreakable cages and of the flawed human beings who hunt them; of original sin and practical modern curse, and of chastisement before perverse gods; such twisted threads weave life's strange tapestry. Of depravity, here find endless expositions, and of monsters, seven.
Newly edited in 2019. In this, the second book in the Anabar trilogy, Anabar begins his new life as a Scout and finds excitement, success, and fame.

Soldiers capture Anabar and send him to prison, an event that ultimately leads him to the arms of Princess Astrida. In the end, Anabar faces his most difficult decision: whether to perform his duty as a Scout, to seek the love of Astrida, or to risk everything to try to bring peace to the land.

The ground shook and a rumble sounded through the air as the train squealed to a stop. Maybe, just maybe, I could carry someone's bags without the porter taking notice. And then there was the even bigger maybe: Maybe I could get enough money to at least buy a crust of bread for Trevor and Tabitha to share.
I hid behind the boxes in the freight yard and kept one eye on the porter, and the other on the second class passenger car. The porter had his attention on the first class car, so I slipped into the gathering crowd.

Millie Barton is bored. She's even more bored than you, and you've just spent more than ONE HUNDRED DAYSat home with your family.
She also happens to possess an amazing and secret skill. So secret, in fact, that she doesn't even know about it herself.

The Order of Stheno. Book 1: The curse of the five manikins.
Jack Kidd: 12 yrs old, an only child, more or less happy with his lot despite his overprotective mother and the occasional run-in with the school bullies, has his world turned upside down when his long-lost grandfather comes to live with them; a grandfather with whom he has had no contact since he was a baby; a complete stranger, weird in appearance and even weirder in his manner.
Jack's relationship with this grumpy old man who has been charged with driving him to school every day, changes dramatically when he learns of a legend involving a curse spanning centuries: a legend that has haunted the old man since his childhood.
Warned by his mother not to pay any attention to his grandfather's wild storytelling, Jack nevertheless finds himself drawn into a nightmare world where witches, brownies, boggarts and werewolves, not to mention demonic possession and vampire cults, are the norm.
Her transformation into the creature called "Super Bitch" occurred on the worst day of her life. Literally.
Weeks earlier on a Thursday morning, the apocalypse began when her father attempted to beat her to death with a golf club. Playing dead after the assault and through the inaugural hours of global slaughter, she ultimately escaped the first throes of Terminus by banding together with a small group of fellow Immunes.
Then the flying saucer appeared. Though her friends risked their lives to save her from its sinister alien influence, nothing could penetrate the beam of light that descended from the saucer's belly to envelop and then elevate her body upward into its sinister confines.
This is where her story ends and then begins anew. Oh, and to make everything worse than worst, she had just started her period, too.

What do Vodnik, a green-haired, water-dwelling scoundrel, and Baba Yaga, an old witch who lives in a Hut Standing on One Bird's Leg, have in common? Not much -- except that both are shocked to learn that all giants, known as ispolins, have disappeared.
Goran is the only former ispolin who knows how and why it happened. But for God Perun, the supreme god of thunder, this was the only logical way to end the quest he had put Goran through -- a quest to find and present to God Perun three golden apples and prove ispolins worthy.
Now Goran's quest is over, and God Perun has defeated his archenemy God Veles, the god of the Underworld. But God Veles, gravely injured during the battle, is recovering -- and plotting God Perun's demise.
Goran, burdened by guilt and having lost most of his friends, sets out to find Stamat, a dwarf who once saved Goran's life but vanished shortly thereafter. And even if this means forming a very dangerous alliance, Stamat can use all the help he can get in his ...
First, he created the dwarfs -- and disappointed by their weakness, he quickly destroyed them. But for God Perun, creating a race of giants hasn't been as great as he imagined, either. Slow, clumsy, and not exceptionally bright, the sizable creatures known as ispolins have failed to live up to Perun's expectations. But in the name of fairness, he comes up with a plan that will put them to the test.
An unhappy ispolin, on the verge of leaving his village for good, Goran never thought he would find himself responsible for the future of his kind. But now, he's facing a dangerous quest -- to retrieve three golden apples from one magical tree, guarded by a formidable dragon, and bring them back to Perun.
Aided by a number of magical creatures, great and small, Goran is well on his way to accomplishing his goal, and saving all of ispolin-kind. But not everything is as it seems, and when hidden motives begin to reveal themselves, it could put an end, once and for all, to more than just the ...
Peddlers and snake oil, pimps and pornography, lunatics and paranoia... each pair travels the same darkened alleyways to service identical shadow-bound gates. We receive them by the backdoor, thank you, and always well into the evening.
These are private matters undertaken and clearly marked by clandestine hush and furtive sidelong glance. Sometimes concealed in the open but more often hidden in a fog of disinformation, our every secret contains a kernel of truth wrapped within a burlap of proficient lies.
Patience and due diligence may unwrap the enigma to decipher a hidden message, but let the interloper beware. Secrecy keeps company with slaughter. Of political overwatch run monstrously amok; of corrupt small-town cops playing god; of ancient treasures buried in the most obvious of sites, and of all the mysterious specters that play lethal games of government; such twisted threads weave life's strange tapestry. Of conspiracies, here find intriguing catalogs, and of conspirators, ...
Tabloids invite us to gorge ourselves on tales of epic personal failures, and so many of us eagerly oblige. Guilty pleasures, we savor these stories most satisfactorily with a garnish of sex scandal, a dash of fiscal malfeasance and a generous dollop of social corruption.
Next, we expect a weeping dessert of shame and regret to follow. Afterward, everything ends in a dumpster or the backseat of an aging sedan before we stagger home again, sated, smug and full of improving condemnations.
Cup your ears and shade your eyes now. Peer into the gloom of your neighbor's windows to eavesdrop. Of a malign understanding bent before a wickeder will; of lost nobodies disappeared into countless nowhere holes; of narcissistic egotism, neglectful self-absorption and conscienceless intellect; of evil embodied in mediocrity and of all the demonic power brokers that grind our bones; such twisted threads weave life's strange tapestries. Of tragically flawed characters, here find deplorable examples, ...
In 1980 WarGames featured a teenager who was about to trigger off a nuclear conflict with a mere video game. Half a century later, at the heart of a society dominated by computer technology where electronic surveillance and automation is everywhere, a young man is likewise caught up in a terrifying spiral of events. On June 20 2027, the first fully automatic pilotless airliner crashes on its maiden flight with 400 passengers on board. At a video-game center in Seattle where he plays almost every day on an aeronautic simulator, John Higgins watches the event as it is broadcast live. While the other two billion viewers are deeply shocked, John is totally stunned, for the crash bears an uncanny resemblance to one of his own virtual flights. In a world where one's every movement is continuously monitored and security constantly threatened by ruthless hackers, he manages to escape from unknown pursuers and sets out in search of the truth, a quest that is shared by CIA agents and a ...
Champions come in all shapes and forms. The same is true of cowards. Most of us line up somewhere between these two extremes of potential, but none of us eagerly anticipate having to prove ourselves in a crossfire.
In fact, most notable acts of heroism are not the results of well-considered, carefully laid plans. Rather, these are often spontaneous yet deliberate demonstrations of selflessness occasionally on display when normal human beings must confront life-threatening risk.
Take a deep, calming breath now, before you dare gaze into the face of death. Trembling, heed its heckling catcalls. Of broken people living broken lives; of ever hopeful children slowly ground into cynical adults beneath crushing realities; of good men trapped in bad places and of bad men working good deeds; of tangible human guilt and scatological human torment; such twisted threads weave life's strange tapestries. Of redemptions failed or delivered, here find disturbing variations, and of heroes, none.

And whenever he walked down the street in his high hat everyone would say, "There goes the Doctor! -- He's a clever man."

The house he lived in, on the edge of the town, was quite small; but his garden was very large and had a wide lawn ...
