A Carnivore's Inquiry
Atlantic Monthly Press
Katherine Shea knows all there is to know about cannibalism. She's intimately familiar with the most famous flesh-eating episodes in art, literature and history. Yes, she's a psycho. Murray's quirky protagonist drives this accomplished, new novel by the PEN/Faulkner Award winner.
Alone with the Horrors: The Great Short Fiction of Ramsey Campbell, 1961-1991
First published in 1993, Alone with the Horrors has been slightly rearranged and revamped in the hope that Campbell's smart, terrifying tales will appeal to a new generation of horror fans. The book collects nearly 40 stories from the first three decades in the career of the master.
Barclay's first mystery novel, about a jittery science fiction writer forced into a murderous confrontation with some seedy developers, is getting a warm reception from mystery fans due to its colorful anti-hero and light, comedic plot.
