Cat Magic – Whitley Streiber .99  from 27 November to 6 December : Some people in Maywell, New Jersey, commute to New York.  Some are working on a lab project that will change the world — if it is allowed to succeed. And some people are witches. Amanda Walker is not a witch — yet.  She’s an artist, looking for work — unaware that someone has a desperate need for her, a dark plan that may require Amanda to enter death itself. If she is allowed to live long enough to make the choice. Amanda’s tale is far stranger than she knows.  It is ancient beyond memory.  In times of great change it must be relived, in all its fear and hope, its wisdom and its passion. One of those times is now.

The Death Artist – Dennis Etchison – .99 from 26 November to 5 December :  “One hell of a fiction writer.” — Stephen King

First published as a limited-edition hardcover, The Death Artist collects 12 unforgettable tales that define the state of the art in modern horror.

Shadow Child – Joseph A. Citro – .99  from 27 November to 6 December

The Damnation Game – Clive Barker – .99  9 Decmeber to 18 Decmeber :  Marty Strauss, a gambling addict recently released from prison, is hired to be the personal bodyguard of Joseph Whitehead, one of the wealthiest men in the world. The job proves more complicated and dangerous than he thought, however, as Marty soon gets caught up in a series of supernatural events involving Whitehead, his daughter (who is a heroin addict), and a devilish man named Mamoulian, with whom Whitehead made a Faustian bargain many years earlier, during World War II. As time passes, Mamoulian haunts Whitehead using his supernatural powers (such as the ability to raise the dead), urging him to complete his pact with him. Eventually Whitehead decides to escape his fate after a few encounters with Mamoulian and having his wife, former bodyguard, and now his daughter Carys taken away from him. With hope still left to save Carys, Marty Strauss, although reluctant to get involved in the old man Whiteheads deserved punishment, decides to get involved and attempt to save the innocent gifted addict from being another victim to the damnation game.

Hallowed Ground – Steven Savile & David Niall Wilson .99 8 December to 17 December : When a man known only as The Deacon set up camp outside Rookwood, a murder of crows took to unnatural, moonlit flight. The crows came to Rookwood; trouble soon to follow. Things were already strange in that God-forsaken town, but no one could have predicted the forces and fates about to meet in a dust-bowl clearing in the desert. A Preacher. A Demon. An Angel. A Gunslinger. A bargain with the darkness was signed in blood, and broken, and as such deals usually do, it went south. Now the fate of lost lovers, faith healers, ancient Gods and the Devil himself collide in a circle of wagons tended by the damaged and deformed, the saved and the shorn. There’s a power come to Rookwood, and this one-horse town is about to be transformed. Such deals are only made and broken…on Hallowed Ground.

Deep int the Darkness – Michael Laimo – .99  1 December to 11 December: Dr. Michael Cayle wants the best for his wife and young daughter. That’s why he moves the family from Manhattan to accept a private practice in the small New England town of Ashborough. Everything there seems so quaint and peaceful at first. But Ashborough is a town with secrets. Unimaginable secrets. Many of the townspeople are strangely nervous, and some speak quietly of legends that no sane person could believe. But what Michael discovers in the woods, drenched in blood, makes him wonder. Soon he will be forced to believe, when he learns the terrifying identity of the golden eyes that peer at him balefully from deep in the darkness.

The Man – Irving Wallace – .99 12 December to 21 December: The time is 1964. The place is the Cabinet Room of the White House. An unexpected accident and the law of succession have just made Douglass Dilman the first black President of the United States. This is the theme of what was surely one of the most provocative novels of the 1960s. It takes the reader into the storm center of the presidency, where Dilman, until now an almost unknown senator, must bear the weight of three burdens: his office, his race, and his private life. From beginning to end, The Man is a novel of swift and tremendous drama, as President Dilman attempts to uphold his oath in the face of international crises, domestic dissension, violence, scandal, and ferocious hostility. Push comes to shove in a breathtaking climax, played out in the full glare of publicity, when the Senate of the United States meets for the first time in one hundred years to impeach the President.
