NEVERMORE – A NOVEL OF LOVE, LOSS & EDGAR ALLAN POE – by DAVID NIALL WILSON – .99 through October 17 – On the banks of Lake Drummond, on the edge of The Great Dismal Swamp, there is a tree in the shape of a woman. One dark, moonlit night, two artists met at The Lake Drummond Hotel, built directly on the borderline of North Carolina and Virginia. One was a young woman with the ability to see spirits trapped in trees and stone, anchored to the earth beyond their years. Her gift was to draw them, and then to set them free. The other was a dark man, haunted by dreams and visions that brought him stories of sadness and pain, and trapped in a life between the powers he sensed all around him, and a mundane existence attended by failure. They were Eleanore MacReady, Lenore, to her friends, and a young poet named Edgar Allan Poe, who traveled with a crow that was his secret, and almost constant companion, a bird named Grimm for the talented brothers of fairy-tale fame. Their meeting drew them together in vision, and legend, and pitted their strange powers and quick minds against the depths of the Dismal Swamp itself, ancient legends, and time. Once, upon a shoreline dreary, there was a tree. This is her story.

It is inoculated into our very being at an early age and there it remains. As we grow old, it grows dormant… but it is still there.

THREE SMALL COINKYDINKS – A DuckBob Spinowitz Adventure – By AARON ROSENBERG – (If you don’t think this is scary enough for Halloween, try having a duck’s hyead…) Bob Spinowitz was an average guy—until aliens abducted him and gave him the head of a duck. Then they asked “DuckBob” to save the universe, since their modifications meant he could. Talk about a backhanded compliment!

Amazingly, though, DuckBob did it. And thus became Guardian of the Matrix, which protects the cosmos from further invasion—as long as he’s plugged in. Literally.

But alien techie pal Ned just made the Matrix User Interface wireless. Suddenly, DuckBob is free again—the whole universe is at his alien-altered, webbed feet! Only problem is, could being unplugged mean he’s out of a job?

As a pick-me-up, Ned takes DuckBob to his homeworld—which looks just like Brooklyn. Odd changes are afoot, there, however—ones with potentially cosmic repercussions. Soon DuckBob finds himself struggling to stay alive. And to find lunch, which is equally important.

Can DuckBob conquer his doubt, rein in his freedom, and help save Ned’s world? Or will our avian-esque hero’s first unrestricted flight be the last—not just for him but for us all?

Life is the miraculous journey, death at once an end and a joyous new beginning.

He has seen them enter the lives of others and witnessed the extraordinary effects of their presence. And he has received their vast wisdom about the wonder of life and the rich, almost totally unexplored experience we call death.

Murder Most Fowl – A Dan Rhodes Mystery by Bill Crider

Following Booked for a Hanging, Anthony Award-winner Bill Crider brings back his amiable, computer-phobic sheriff Dan Rhodes to investigate a murder that may or may not be related to a recent wave of emu-rustling. For an officer of the law, Blacklin County, Texas, used to be pretty peaceful, but now, what with the emu-rustling, cockfights, and protests at the new Wal-Mart store — not to mention murder — Sheriff Dan Rhodes has his hands full. Hit hard by the collapse of his little hardware store, Elijah (“Lige”) Ward has taken to chaining himself to the Wal-Mart doors and generally making a nuisance of himself. And when Lige’s dead body turns up, floating down a river in a portable toilet, Rhodes finds he has quite a case to investigate. What was the connection between Lige and chickens? Lige and the Palm Club? And was he involved in the area’s emu thefts? It seems that raising emus (“taste like steak, not chicken”) is a booming business, so much so that emu (“calmer than ostriches and more resistant to disease”) are being stolen left, right, and center by would-be emu ranchers with little respect for the law. From theft to murder, the local crime spree seems unstoppable. But with a little help from the computer foisted on him by aging deputies Hack and Lawton, plus some good old-fashioned detective work, Rhodes just may be able to straighten out his county.

Winning Can be Murder – A Dan Rhodes Mystery by Bill Crider

It’s been a while since Sheriff Dan Rhodes’s football days, but things haven’t really changed, at least not with state playoffs coming up and excitement for the local high school team heating up to a fever pitch. But then coach Brady Meredith is found shot to death in his car, and his murder leads to troublesome rumors concerning illegal betting, black market steroids and the sheriff’s old nemesis, a biker named Rapper, who has reappeared in Blacklin County. Too many coincidences for Rhodes’s comfort. Especially when another corpse makes it a second down for a killer determined to lead Sheriff Rhodes into a game of sudden death.

When the forces of good finally mobilize in an attempt to reclaim Mavinor, they realize that they cannot afford to fail in their crusade or the world as they once knew it will be gone forever.

And the old ghosts stir…

The secret—such a terrible secret—still lives in his heart. It is here, in Harlequin. She is here.

Patrick will never forget Mama Fish.

Harlequin High, 1986. Kelvin Fish was the oddball, the weird kid that no one would talk to. Except for Patrick, who was determined to learn more about this strange child, and to befriend him. But Patrick would get more than he bargained for…

Uncle Adolph by Jeffrey Sackett

It is December of 1927, the dead of winter in Linz, Austria. Geli Raubal is almost nineteen years old, and she feels that life is passing her by. She lives an unpleasant existence with her stuffy, provincial mother and her insufferable, oh-so-proper younger sister in a backwater town in what she regards as the middle of nowhere. Thus she is overjoyed when her mother receives an invitation to come to Munich, Germany, to act as housekeeper for her bachelor brother. Geli’s uncle is a man some twenty years older than she is, a man who is becoming increasingly important in the politics of Weimar Germany, a man who inspires both devotion in his followers as well as hatred in his enemies, a charismatic man whose piercing blue eyes and towering oratory can both mesmerize and horrify. Her uncle is Adolf Hitler.

In Munich, and at her uncle’s alpine villa on the Obersalzberg above Berchtesgaden, Geli becomes acquainted with his strange circle of friends: Joseph Goebbels, an idolater who found God in Adolf Hitler; Hermann Goering, a World War One air hero who led the Richthofen squadron after the Red Baron’s death, and is now Hitler’s ruthless right-hand man; Heinrich Himmler, a quiet, subdued, reptilian man whose calm exterior masks as an inner demon; Ernst Röhm, leader of the S.A., the Brown Shirts, the private army of the Nazi Party; Rudolf Hess, a slavish devotee of the Führer to whom Hitler dictated Mein Kampf while in prison: and many others.

In the bloody politics of Weimer Germany, with Nazis and Communists murdering each other on the streets as the democratic parties stand by and watch in impotent dread, all political groups prepare as best they can for whatever contingencies may arise. But the one thing that no one could anticipate, neither red nor rightist nor republican, is that Adolf Hitler and his niece Geli Raubal would fall hopelessly in love.

This novel tells the true story of the strange love affair between Geli and her Uncle Adolf, an affair that began in 1927 and ended in heart-rending tragedy in 1931.
