Book Summary:

Kirsten routinely wakes in horror to a shadow man who torments her throughout her teenage years. She suffers from night terrors as this thing mocks her. She soon finds that her family used to do witchcraft and made a pact long ago that each first-born child would be part of this ritual. When her mother gives birth to a son, she finds herself chasing away shadow figures from his crib. As the shadow figure seemingly becomes stronger and stronger, Kirsten must not only watch out for herself but her family as well. And time is running out.

Book Summary:

“In this wide-ranging collection of forty-three poems, John Ngong Kum Ngong undertakes a critical and acerbic diagnosis of the socio-political situation in postcolonial Africa through a deceptively simple, aesthetically complex, and ideologically intriguing style. The multi-facetted and interrelated motifs of ‘shadows’ and ‘seasons’, together with a plethora of literary devices such as paradox, suspense, metaphors, allusions, personification, irony, satire, humour, and contrast, are the weapons through which the poet drives home his message. The poems, in this collection, are not only politically ‘correct’ but are also artistically profound.” - Zuhmboshi Eric Nsuh, PhD. Lecturer, Literary Critic, and Political Analyst

Book Summary:

This early work by Robert E. Howard was originally published in the 1934 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Tomb's Secret' is one of Howard's stories featuring police detective Steve Harrison. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard – a bookish and somewhat introverted child – was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece – a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' – for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Book Summary:

Get swept up in an emotional tale of regret and rebirth by New York Times bestselling author Diane Chamberlain. Joelle D’Angelo’s best friend, Mara, is left with brain damage after she suffers an aneurysm giving birth to her son. Alone and grieving, Joelle turns to the only other person who understands her pain: her colleague—and Mara’s husband—Liam. What starts out as comfort between friends gradually becomes something more…something undeniable. Torn by guilt and the impossibility of her feelings for Liam, Joelle sets out determined to find help for Mara, no matter how unconventional the source. Her search leads her to a remote mansion in Monterey, California, and into the life of a woman shrouded in mystery. Carlynn Kling Shire is a healer who, according to Joelle’s parents, saved Joelle’s life when she was an infant. As Joelle is guided down an unfamiliar path by a woman keeping her own shocking secrets, she discovers that while some love is doomed, some love is destined to survive. Previously published.
