“Good serious fantasy doesn’t come much better than The Stress of Her Regard.”
Michael Crawford is forced to flee when he discovers his bride brutally murdered in their wedding bed, trapped by the embrace of the malignant spirit claiming him as her bridegroom. Telling a secret history of passion and terror, Tim Powers masterfully recasts the tragic lives of the Romantic poets.

“An exquisitely beautiful, eerily compelling modern fairy tale.”
—Library Journal, starred review
This haunting tale of an ages-old family secret breaches the boundaries between reality and magic, revealing the places between them. It is the story of the Feierabend women, whose luck is so good that it is as though they are living in a fairy tale without a dark side.

“[Gregory’s] plotting, characterisations, and yes, the writing itself, is all that good. In short, this one completely blew me away.”
—Horror After Dark
What happens when five seemingly-insane outcasts—survivors of horror movie scenarios—form a support group? Together they must discover which monsters they face are within…and which are lurking in plain sight.
“Deadman’s Road is a delightfully pulpy, wickedly funny, satisfying read. Saddle up, because you are in for one helluva ride!”
When renegade author Kameron Hurley (The Light Brigade; The Stars Are Legion) takes you to the future, be prepared for the unexpected. It will be dangerous, frequently brutal, and often devastating. But also, savagely funny and deliciously strange. In these edgy, unexpected tales, a body-hopping mercenary avenges his pet elephant, an orphan falls in love with a sentient starship, and a swamp-dwelling introvert tries to save the world—from her plague-casting former wife.
“Datlow once again proves herself as a master editor. Her mission to broaden readers’ concepts of what a haunting can be is nothing short of a success, and the twenty-four stories on display run the gamut from explicitly terrifying to eerily familiar. Readers who wish to be haunted themselves should not miss this one. Highly recommended.”
This spine-tingling anthology—complied by the horror genre’s most acclaimed editor—collects a chilling array of ghost stories from the past twenty-five years. Authors include Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link, Peter Straub, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Connie Willis, Jeffrey Ford, and more.
“A must-have for Kitty Norville fans, but also an excellent standalone for readers new to Vaughn’s worlds.”
From the author of the beloved Kitty Norville werewolf talk-show host series, comes the vampire origin story of Kitty’s famed ally, Rick—and his sudden turn to darkness in the seventeenth century. More than 500 years before his friendship with Kitty, noble Ricardo de Avila’s life met a fate-changing twist, and his morally-complex, blood-soaked existence as an immortal began.
“De Lint returns to Newford and Jilly Coppercorn’s youth . . . de Lint presents Jilly’s choices, the memories impelling them, and the solution to the riddle of Donna in his characteristic powerful yet intimate style. Jilly’s reader friends, including those first meeting her, will be more than delighted.”
Jilly Coppercorn of Newford is back. With the help of a mentor and an anonymous benefactor, the talented young artist has overcome her troubled past and is enrolled in art school. The future is full of bright promise.
Suddenly, when a tempting opportunity roars into town, Jilly’s life takes a turn for the supernatural.
