Not Hidden By The Fog from the Author: John Creasey. The fog was thick, sulphurous and impenetrable and just like old times before clean air legislation. Beneath it the villains went about their work quietly and largely undisturbed. Commander George Gideon was aware of this and meant to disturb their peace, but he found himself involved in a web that was more impenetrable than the fog itself.

Inferno from the Author: Ellen Datlow. As stated in her introduction to Inferno, Ellen Datlow asked her favorite authors for stories that would "provide the reader with a frisson of shock, or a moment of dread so powerful it might cause the reader outright physical discomfort; or a sensation of fear so palpable that the reader feels compelled to turn on the bright lights and play music or seek the company of others to dispel the fear." Mission accomplished. Datlow has produced a collection filled with some of the most powerful voices in the field: Pat Cadigan, Terry Dowling, Jeffrey Ford, Christopher Fowler, Glen Hirshberg, K. W. Jeter, Joyce Carol Oates, and Lucius Shepard, to name a few. Each author approaches fear in a different way, but all of the stories' characters toil within their own hell. An aptly titled anthology, Inferno will scare the pants off readers and further secure Ellen Datlow's standing as a preeminent editor of modern horror. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Delta Queen from the Author: Charles Bowen. More than 30 years ago, Walker Raines lost the woman he loves. Now he has clandestinely orchestrated what he hopes will appear to be an accidental meeting in very romantic circumstances: aboard the beautiful Delta Queen during a leisurely four-day spring cruise from New Orleans to Natchez. He has chosen the setting very carefully. This stately steamboat has been a dynamic symbol for both of them all their lives. Now it will witness their reunion -- and the secrets that have kept them apart. The Delta Queen is a National Historic Landmark, a 70-year-old steamboat that sails the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Not a reconstruction, she is the genuine article, a sternwheeler that has worked these rivers for half a century. Being aboard is like visiting in a fine old Southern home, where the parlors are filled with brass and crystal, mahogany and Old English oak, where the meals are legendary, a rocking chair is always available and the company is genteel. Walk her decks with us now, while the journey is under way. Hear the towboats whistle as she goes by. Pilots sometimes even lean out their doors and shout, "Helllllo to The Del-ta Queeeeen!" They love her out here, because she is a working girl. They know her from New Orleans to Minneapolis/St. Paul, from St. Louis and Louisville to Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, from Galveston and Little Rock to Memphis, Nashville and Chattanooga. And yet she seldom stays anywhere more than a few hours. She is always on the go, from Louisiana´s Bayou Country to the icy northern reaches of the Canadian border. No wonder they flirt with this tough little prom queen. She has won the hearts of millions. And she has witnessed countless love stories in her travels. This is but one of them. Delta Queen: A Novel, produced by Bowen Books, is a contemporary, intelligent love story in the new tradition of Bridges of Madison County, The Notebook and A Message in a Bottle. Readers who liked those books will love this one. And for anyone who has ever been a passenger on The Delta Queen, or who has always dreamed of being a passenger, this story is for you.

In a centuries-old forest under a full moon, a beast assaults Zach, cursing him forever. In the aftermath, he is transformed into something horrible—something deadly. Now, the good cop has innocent blood on his hands. He has killed—and will kill again—in the form of a beast who can’t be controlled or stopped. Before he can free himself, he’s going to have to solve the greatest mystery of all: How can you defeat evil when the evil is inside you?

Mama S Song from the Author: Gayle Jennings. Mama's Song is a portrait of life in the tiny rural community of Elgood, West Virginia, in the early 1900s. It centers around the Higginbothams, a close-knit farming family, and particularly on Maude, their youngest daughter. It chronicles how their lives are shaped by historical events, their own personal choices, and the trials they face in an era before modern conveniences and modern medicine. They are just an ordinary family--none of them pursue or gain worldly fame. Even so, their unassuming lives are powerful examples of faith, perseverance, and sacrificial love, and the impact that simple acts of kindness have on the lives of others. Their journey through life teaches them that love, loss, and grief are intertwined and will always be so, this side of heaven.
