Books On My Radar

Here are some books, that I am looking forward to reading.  I think you will get a kick out of them as well. 

Introduction by Ramsey Campbell

FROM HELL . . .

Where shadows speak from the depths of a haunted sea.
Where a little girl’s obsession conjures a terrible bogeyman.
Where a woman’s body becomes her own worst enemy.

. . . TO ETERNITY

Where familiar places harbour ancient evil.
Where a dinner party descends into blood, sex, madness and death.
Where a camera can steal more than your very soul.

Enter the strange and disturbing world of Thana Niveau, where fear reigns eternal, and nightmares last forever; where your only refuge is madness and there is always something waiting in the dark.

Won’t you join her?

The vile apparaition at Wicken
The slavering beast of Rendlesham

The Tale of Edgar Trunk: Book 1 is a mystery adventure about Edgar, who has been orphaned since age 1 and spent most of his ten years in a horrible sludge factory. Under the tutelage of the towering and monstrous Uncle Warnock, he has lived life knowing only the joys of the occasional book (until Warnock finds and burns it) and the camaraderie of the lanky and awkward fellow Stewpot.

But everything changes for Edgar when a mysterious knocking sound draws him into the maze of factory hallways and through a peculiar door, where an entire world of curiosities and adventure opens up before him. However, to realize his true destiny he will have to escape the terrifying evil force known only as IT and solve the mysteries of the factory before it is too late

When we think of a wonder, our minds go most often to the great buildings of the past – the pyramids, the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge – but the human mind can make almost anything wondrous. We walk with wonders every day, through the power of curiosity and imagination and our human tendency to make stories about what we fear, what we desire, what we wish to understand. This collection offers new glimpses into the wonder we all feel. Discover standing stones, burial mounds, ruined castles and sunken cities: the ancient sites that litter our landscapes; the ancient wonders that possess a mysterious appeal that cannot be denied. Includes stories by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Aliette de Bodard, Peter Crowther, Anne Nicholls, Adrian Cole, Pauline E Dungate, Bryn Fortey, William Meikle, John Howard, James Brogden, Shannon Connor Winward, Misha Herwin, Lynn M Cochrane and Selina Lock
