She hears a strange whistling that doesn't bode well and sees the ghost of a woman, dressed in black , who's been looking for her son for nearly 100 years. Builders arrive at the house to renovate it and find a cat walled up, a practice that goes back centuries and was used to ward off evil. They walk off the job. Sally is soon haunted via dream by children who don't know they are dead, and an evil, licentious man known as the Master who stalks her via dream. He wants her. 24 hours goes missing with no recall.

The Narratology of Comic Art (Routledge Advances in Comics Studies Book 3) by Kai Mikkonen (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

By placing comics in a lively dialogue with contemporary narrative theory, The Narratology of Comic Art builds a systematic theory of narrative comics, going beyond the typical focus on the Anglophone tradition. This involves not just the exploration of those properties in comics that can be meaningfully investigated with existing narrative theory, but an interpretive study of the potential in narratological concepts and analytical procedures that has hitherto been overlooked. This research monograph is, then, not an application of narratology in the medium and art of comics, but a revision of narratological concepts and approaches through the study of narrative comics. Thus, while narratology is brought to bear on comics, equally comics are brought to bear on narratology.

Extra Credit (Fun Love Book 1) by Poppy Dunne (Paige Press, LLC) 4.6 Stars (152 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Good teachers are not supposed to have such naughty thoughts about a single dad... The first time I saw Will Munroe, I had him nailed. A classic LA guy, handsome and rich and very impressed with himself over both. Not to mention the kind of stockbroker who Bluetooths his deals on the trail my dog and I like. Who does that? Turns out, the father of my new favorite student. And since drooling is discouraged at parent/teacher conferences, I try not to look him in his steel-gray eyes. Which is how I noticed how hard his chest is under that button-down. And the conspicuous absence of a ring on his finger. Basically, I have a crush on the one single dad who's totally off-limits. I really should have said no to that date. A delicious pancake breakfast isn't worth my job if anyone finds out. An even more delicious romp in the hay is a little more worth it. So maybe just one more to double-check. Famous last words. Because the only thing worse than banging a student's dad is falling in love with him.

She doesn't exactly have the kind of life she wants. Tessa needs a change. And the ability to afford the wet food her cat Pepper thinks she deserves at every meal. Against her better judgement but without a better offer, Tessa takes a job from one of the scariest of bosses -- her mother, who has a deadly sharp tongue. And just like that, she learns that the life insurance agency at the edge of Mist River isn't what it seems to be. Plus, Cheryl Randolph isn't simply the sharp-tongued, overly critical mom Tessa thought she was. She's a grim reaper. One of many people tasked with escorting souls into the afterlife. And now Tessa is one too. She wasn't expecting her life change to involve so much Death. Tessa intends to simply kill it in her new career. But, running late on her second day of work, she doesn't make it in time for her neighbor's death. And now his soul is missing. Apparently, that's not a good thing when you're in the soul-collecting business. Who knew? Now, her mom-boss thinks Tessa can't cut it. Which is just so typical. And she doesn't seem to be telling Tessa everything about an important death in both of their pasts. Not only that, but apparently, if Tessa doesn't find the missing spirit fast enough, its absence will rip some kind of apocalyptic hole in space and time. Or something like that. It's all a bit vague. Not that Tessa read the job manual line-by-line. Who has time for that? What's worse, the police think Tessa might've committed the murder. Can Tessa prove her innocence? Can she get her mom off her back and find the wayward soul before time runs out? And will Pepper get that expensive can of tuna she's sure she deserves? Find out today!

Burrito Deluxe by Joseph Ridgwell (Lume Books) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

'I'm no longer prepared to be a pawn in their sick game. I'm gonna return to the land and the earth, where my forefathers came from. All that electronic gadgetry we're supposed to own - it means zero to me.' From the mean streets of East London to the intoxicating thoroughfares of Mexico City emerges a tale of two young men disconnecting from all forms of technology and society at large in a mad chase for freedom. Fed up with the monotonous trap of dead end jobs in the city, Joe and compadre Ronnie need out by any means necessary. Burrito Deluxe tells of drunkenness, East End underworld escapades, thieving, prostitutes, drug-fuelled trips to sacred Mayan temples, psychedelic peyote visions, hippy lifestyles, romantic liaisons, and the search for the legendary Lost Elation at the mystical Beach of the Dead. A study in pathological behaviour at close quarters, this is the first of cult author Joseph Ridgwell's unique novels - the true story of two young men in search of freedom and adventure, but finding nothing but lies, dreams, insanity and death. Described by the author as a 'cosmic road novel', it chronicles the end of youth and idealism, and a total rejection of the modern world. Praise for Burrito Deluxe: 'Like a twisted autobiography, Joe narrates the best bits of his adventures and tells them with truth, lies and style. Ridgwell is the new beat in this beaten generation, Ronnie and Joe my favourite freaks' - Abbie Foxton Urban F 'Literature fiends will love this novel. The narrative is sharp and stylish and loaded with imagination - the work of a brave new talent'- John King, author of The Football Factory 'Deeper and more compelling than ever, Burrito Deluxe gives you the whole enchilada; a real and raw account of two East End gringos travelling through Mexico' - Gwil James Thomas, novelist Joseph Ridgwell was born in 1974 and raised in East London. He left school with no formal qualifications but despite this he read his way through every classic ...

Witchery by Melvin Ward 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

In June 1939 when Kit Barrow starts looking for memories of his father, a pilot killed in the previous war, he isn't prepared for what he will find. His search leads him to a quiet village in the heart of the English countryside where his parents once lived. At least, it's quiet except for one night in the year. Every year on the night of the summer solstice the villagers hold a ritual called the Witching. Nobody knows when or how it started, but they've always done it. They did it when Kit's father lived there and even now, in a changed world with another war looming, they still do it. The Witching isn't a nice, quaint custom. It's a riotous affair when once a year, for a few hours, conventions are ignored, inhibitions are shed and normal behaviour is suspended. Bad things can happen at the Witching.
