The Tiki King from the Author: Stacy Tintocalis. A Lebanese housewife, a former horror-film maker, and a cantankerous Russian librarian are among the inhabitants of the offbeat world found in this impressive debut collection. Stacy Tintocalis’s stories take us from a defunct women’s shelter off a Missouri country road to the streets of low-income Hollywood, where her characters yearn for the love that is always just out of reach. The title story explores the conflicted emotions an adolescent boy feels toward a father who obsessively returns to his childhood home. In “Too Bad about Howie,” a divorced poet finds comfort in stolen moments with his ex-wife’s dog. Despite their longing for connection, these characters are victims of their own foibles, trapped in terrifying moments of psychic violence that risk driving away the very people they love.

Sam Slick Lizard Detective from the Author: Tiki King. One fine morning in 1986, Sam Slick slithered out from the imagination of Tiki King. (He wasn't called Tiki King back then, but that is a different story) He lit a smoke, poured a drink, and then set out on the adventures you will find in this book.(after finishing his drink, of course) Sam was created as an insert to some letters to a friend, was supposed to run four or five strips, and then depart as mysteriously as he appeared. Sam however, had other ideas. He just kept going, and even came out with his own line of Tee-shirts, stickers and buttons. Among those who knew him, Sam was a hit. Then with out a word, Sam disappeared. He surfaced briefly in 1989, but then dropped from sight, possibly never to return. Calls went unanswered, mail came back marked return to sender but now, almost 20 years after it all began, there is a light on in the office. Sam is back, alive and well, having new adventures, and probably watching you right now...In this first edition is the story that started it all "Bunny business" and the second story "Chicken Town" Available for the first time complete and in book form, beautifully type-set in comic sans! Sure to be a collectors item! (Provided you collect lizard detective comic novels)In a recent interview, author Tiki King said: "Can you really put a price on genius? I don't know, but the book is ten bucks. A bargain for people who usually spend twice as much..." Oh, yeah, and even though it is a comic book, it ain't for the kids! It's got violence, cigarettes, excessive drinking, innuendo, ukuleles, angry flies with machine guns...

Dissolved Into Darkness from the Author: Walter McKeever. Professor Redmond 'Mac" McClain and his artist wife Jennifer are thrilled to be at Ravenslake University in Pleasanton, Ohio on a faculty exchange. The Camelot-like setting charms them. New friends tell them of a famous Ravenslake mystery-the vanishing of student John Traynor. He disappeared, without a trace, into the midnight darkness of a nearby hamlet forty-one years ago. Most believe he was murdered, but no body or killer was found. Students believe Traynor's ghost haunts the site of his old dormitory. Others believe Traynor suffered an accidental head injury and amnesia, wandered to a distant location, and gradually assumed a new identity without any awareness of his life as John Traynor. Mac and Jen enjoy the quaint town, new friends, university sports team successes, and artistic events, but disquieting elements bubble beneath the placid surface. Friends Eve Gundersen and Giselle Johannsen tell them of their depressed former classmate, Horace Gilmer, who at the age of 34, shot himself. Jen finds a deep poignancy in the story of Horace. And the fall term has barely begun when a new mystery shocks peaceful Pleasanton-a cold-blooded murder. There's no shortage of potential killers. And other skullduggery is afoot! In a genteel college town setting, Mac and Jen must apply their famous curiosity and initiative to disentangle the web of mysteries at Ravenslake University.

Born To Love Cursed To Feel from the Author: Samantha King. Born to Love, Cursed to Feel is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals and how when emotions are involved it’s not as black and white. The poetry is frequently written in a narrative manner that evocatively pulls you in and makes you feel. This book is about falling in love, bad decisions, and ultimately growth. The essence of it all is to show that no matter how far one falls all the mistakes don’t have to be what defines them.
