Six tales of horror and the macabre by Edmund Glasby.
On a visit to Venice, tour company adviser Michael Harper witnessed a disturbing scene - police officers dragging a burnt and bloated corpse from the canal.
But this wasn't the first incident. Three other corpses had also recently been retrieved from the same spot. They all had severe burn marks on their bodies. They all had drowned.
The local opinion was that they had been murdered. The latest victim had been a shady antiques dealer who had stored his stock on the island of Poveglia: long-abandoned and off limits on account of having been used in the Middle Ages to burn the bodies of plague victims, many of them cremated whilst still alive.
Contemplating a scheme to plunder the dealer's stock, Harper was about to find far more than he bargained for.

Magic isn't for sissies.
No good comes from this book. The story has magic, mayhem, theft, murder, sass talk, demons, animals committing felonies, gleeful revenge, and bad things happening to good people for no particular reason. It won't encourage good habits and probably fine tune bad ones. The only lesson learned is don't lie unless you know the rules.

WINNER OF BEST HISTORICAL FANTASY OF 2019 in the American Book Fest American Fiction Awards.
This time-travel fantasy adventure will take you on a magical journey back to the Revolutionary War at a time when loyalties are tested and the secrets that you keep very well could get you killed.
Waking up in the year 1765, next to a mysterious black horse, Maggie Bishop has no idea what cosmic force shook her up and spit her back out 253 years in the past, and she certainly has no clue on how to get back to her life in 2018. What she does know is that she needs to find a way to survive in the not-so-modern and very dangerous world that she has been unexpectedly thrust into.
With the American Revolutionary War on the horizon, Maggie uses her knowledge of the future to create a new life with the sole intent of steering clear of trouble while keeping her loved ones safe from the devastation of war. However, when a simple twist of fate intervenes, Maggie finds herself not only owed a debt ...
Guard the Temple.
Safeguard Pilgrims on the Path.
Record knowledge -- both holy and unholy.
Those are the three mandates Templar Knights have followed since the twelfth century.
But it's the twenty-first century and Aria is not a Knight. She's refused to take her oath, and instead is barely making ends meet as a part-time barista in Baltimore.
Just before she's served an eviction notice, the Mistress of the local vampire family offers her a job -- to research a magical symbol. It's an easy task for a woman who has spent most of her life either in armor or with her nose in ancient manuscripts.
But when her research reveals a sordid connection between the vampires and a mass murder, Aria needs to decide who is in the right and worthy of her protection. Modern Templars believe only God should judge, but Aria must do exactly that or watch the Baltimore streets run red with blood.

Clarissa Lawrence wishes that for once in her life everything would go smoothly and according to plan. She would like a fairy tale wedding -- minus an uninvited Fae and a unicorn stampede running amok.
