A BIG SHIP AT THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE

(THE SALVAGERS #1)

Sci-Fi

A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe is the first book in this bold, new science fiction adventure series. It follows a group of adventurers as they try to find a legendary ship that just might be the key to clearing their name and saving the universe.

Space legends, treasure hunters, a murder: the wrong side of the law will connect two women on a smuggler’s ship that will take them on a quest for fame, for riches, and for justice.

THE ANOMALY

(STANDALONE)

Mystery, Horror, Sci-Fi

If you’d combine Indiana Jones and the X-Files era, you’d get Nolan Moore — a rogue archaeologist hosting a documentary series derisively dismissed by the “real” experts, but beloved of conspiracy theorists, and the main character of The Anomaly.

Nolan sets out to retrace the steps of an explorer from 1909 who claimed to have discovered a mysterious cavern high up in the ancient rock of the Grand Canyon. But there are questions that even he can’t answer: how has the cave remained hidden for so long? And why its last visitors attempt to seal it forever?

THE BOOK OF M

(STANDALONE)

Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Dystopia

Set in a dangerous near future world, The Book of M tells the captivating story of a group of ordinary people caught in an extraordinary catastrophe who risk everything to save the ones they love.

One afternoon, a man’s shadow disappears—an occurrence science cannot explain. The phenomenon spreads like a plague, and while those afflicted gain a strange new power, it comes at a horrible price: the loss of all their memories.

SOCIAL CREATURE

(STANDALONE)

Thriller, Suspense, Mystery

If you love the books of Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt, you will certainly want to read this dark and addictive debut thriller.

Louise has nothing. Lavinia has everything. After a chance encounter, the two spiral into an intimate, intense, and possibly toxic friendship. A Talented Mr Ripley for the digital age, this seductive story takes a classic tale of obsession and makes it irresistibly new.

THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD

(STANDALONE)

Thriller, Suspense, Horror

The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts returns with the home invasion horror story in a novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King’s Misery and Jack Ketchum’s hit The Girl Next Door.

A gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, makes The Cabin at the End of the World a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastical imagination of Paul Tremblay.

A THOUSAND BEGINNINGS AND ENDINGS

(STANDALONE)

Fantasy, Mythology, Short Stories

Fifteen bestselling and acclaimed authors reimagine the folklore and mythology of East and South Asia in short stories that go from fantasy to science fiction to contemporary, from romance to tales of revenge; destined to beguile readers from start to finish.

Star-crossed lovers, meddling immortals, feigned identities, battles of wits, and dire warnings: these are the stuff of fairy tale, myth, and folklore that have drawn us in for centuries, which makes this anthology a perfect multiverse to read.
