Graveworm by Tim Curran 

GRAVEWORM By night he creeps through cemeteries. By night he violates graves. By night he sleeps with the dead. And by night he stalks new victims. His new victim is Lisa Coombes. 

GRAVEWORM His message to Tara Coombes is simple: He has buried Lisa alive. Her air is running out. It’s time to play the game. And if Tara doesn’t do exactly what he says and perform every gruesome appointed task, the next time she sees her sister, she’ll be a corpse.

GRAVEWORM He dances with the dead and it is through his mouth that they scream.




Four Legs in the Morning: The Collection by   Norman Prentiss


Four Legs in the Morning: The Collection

(Three Curiosities, featuring Dr. Sibley)
Dr. Sibley, long-standing Chair of the English and Classical Literature Department at Graysonville University, has outlasted many of his detractors. In this collection of three linked stories, mysterious consequences await those who defy or disappoint him:
• a new colleague, whose avant-guard theories offend Sibley’s traditional critical sensibilities, uncovers a new answer to an ancient riddle (“Four Legs in the Morning”)
• a student plagiarist learns to regret his dishonesty (“Flannel Board”)
• a young administrator attempts to curtail some of Sibley’s power, until he discovers the fate of his predecessor (“The Mask of Tragedies”)
All of these characters eventually learn—sometimes too late—that Dr. Sibley may be far more powerful than he seems. 

His Work To See By Richard Wright 

The game is ancient, played out in cities and towns across the world. The players are powerful beyond measure, and their champions and foot soldiers battle in perpetuity. There are over seven billion prizes to be won, each precious beyond measure. They are the souls of every man, woman, and child on earth, and both sides will stop at nothing to claim them.

Pandora and Ambrose are opposites in the Greatest War, an angel and a demon, combatants locked in a furious struggle for the people of a single city. There are rules of engagement, long established. There are eternal principles, that none would think to break. Each is destined to despise the other, and their mutual hatred is written into the DNA of the Universe.

They shouldn’t have been able to fall in love.

Now Heaven and Hell are hunting them. Nobody on Earth can help them. To survive, they must face the most terrifying champions their superiors can muster, and the consequences of failure are beyond imagining.
