The Little Sleep
Raymond Chandler meets Jonathan Lethem in this wickedly entertaining debut featuring Mark Genevich, Narcoleptic DetectiveMark Genevich is a South Boston P.I. with a little problem: he’s narcoleptic, and he suffers from the most severe symptoms, including hypnogogic hallucinations. These waking dreams wreak havoc for a guy who depends on real life clues to make his living. Clients haven t exactly been beating down the door when Mark meets Jennifer Times daughter of the powerful local D.A. and a contestant on American Star who walks into his office with an outlandish story about a man who stole her fingers. He awakes from his latest hallucination alone, but on his desk is a manila envelope containing risqu photos of Jennifer. Are the pictures real, and if so, is Mark hunting a blackmailer, or worse?Wildly imaginative and with a pitch perfect voice, The Little Sleep is the first in a new series that casts a fresh eye on the rigors of detective work, and introduces a character who has a lot to prove if only he can stay awake long enough to do it.
No Sleep Till Wonderland
Mark Genevich, narcoleptic detective, is caught between friends and a police investigation in this wickedly riveting PI novel with a twist a follow up to The Little Sleep Mark Genevich is stuck in a rut: his narcolepsy isn t improving, his private detective business is barely scraping by, and his landlord mother is forcing him to attend group therapy sessions. Desperate for companionship, Mark goes on a two day bender with a new acquaintance, Gus, who is slick and charismatic and someone Mark knows very little about. When Gus asks Mark to protect a friend who is being stalked, Mark inexplicably finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation and soon becomes the target of the police, a sue happy lawyer, and a violent local bouncer. Will Mark learn to trust himself in time to solve the crime and in time to escape with his life?Written with the same witty voice that doesn t let go that has won Paul Tremblay so many fans, No Sleep Till Wonderland features a memorable detective whose only hope for reconciling with his difficult past is to keep moving asleep or awake toward an uncertain future. Library Journal, starred review for The Little Sleep
Above: City is sprawling, technocratic, corrupt, and built hundreds of feet above a bay, resting upon the giant wooden shoulders of Pier.
Below: Pier is a seemingly endless maze of stripped sequoia trees with trunks as thick as buildings, branches molded into a complex lattice of support beams and struts.
Above and Below: The people. Weapons dealers and hired heavies with major Daddy issues; a Pier deported homeless man and a pistol packing priest trying to survive with each other and their terrible secrets; a librarian haunted by City’s violent history, his family, and by Ballons; a flawed and shattered woman who wants to escape City no matter the cost. Their lives are a part of each other. Their lives are a part of City Pier.
The Harlequin and the Train
Limited to 400 copies, this novella from critically acclaimed author Paul G. Tremblay expands upon the short story of the same name published in Compositions for the Young and Old, 2004, rev. 2005.
The Harlequin & the Train is an experimental fiction narrative that requires you to interact with it using a simple yellow highlighter. This novella is about paranoia, choice, and the horror of individual and collective consequence.
Rudy has only been on the job as a train engineer for a few months. While at the helm of a commuter train headed to Boston, Massachusetts, it hits a harlequin clown, and in the chaotic aftermath, he witnesses the horrific and inexplicable actions of a group of people who were seemingly laying in wait for the accident. There are other accidents and as the group infiltrates his life present and past, and as random global acts of violence and suffering seem to be connected, what Rudy believes about others and himself will be forever warped as he makes his final choice.
Summer Frost (By:Blake Crouch)
The original version of SERIAL, still available as a free ebook, was a 7500 word horror short story done as an experiment. Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking? 1: Don t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. 2: Don t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy. So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy 1 offered a ride to Crazy 2?When Blake Crouch DESERT PLACES, ABANDON and Jack Kilborn AFRAID, CHERRY BOMB, face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an After School Special, SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides. Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100 word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psychopath win.F. Paul Wilson says, SERIAL reads just like a Crouch or Kilborn novel: Full speed ahead, no flinching, no blinking, no brakes. In less than a year, SERIAL has been downloaded over 200,000 times, and has received over a hundred negative reviews, with many people claiming it is the most depraved, awful thing they’ve ever read. SERIAL UNCUT is newly expanded, now more than 36,000 words. Along with the reinsertion of additional material cut from the original version, it also has a vastly expanded beginning and ending, including an extended section that originally appeared in the novella TRUCK STOP by J.A. Konrath. If you can handle horrific thrills, proceed at your own risk. But if you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should read something else instead. The authors are in no way responsible for any lost sleep, missed work, failed relationships, or difficulty in coping with life after you have read SERIAL UNCUT. They will not pay for any therapy you may require as a result of reading SERIAL UNCUT. They will not cradle you in their arms, rock you back and forth, and speak in soothing tones while you unsuccessfully try to forget SERIAL UNCUT. You have been warned…
The Bone Key (By:Sarah Monette)
The dead and the monstrous will not leave Kyle Murchison Booth alone, for an unwilling foray into necromancy has made him sensitive to and attractive to the creatures who roam the darkness of his once safe world. Ghosts, ghouls, incubi: all have one thing in common. They know Booth for one of their own…
No ax murderers hunting sexy teens…
no brutal torture for torture’s sake…
because Phantom goes beyond the scare: Paul Tremblay and Sean Wallace have collected fourteen stories by today’s most thoughtful writers of horror, each asking the questions beyond what is frightening? This is just the beginning, however, with stories from Steve Rasnic Tem, Lavie Tidhar, F. Brett Cox, Stephen Graham Jones, Steve Berman, Nick Mamatas, Michael Cisco, among other fresh voices in horror. From paranoid gold prospectors to lonely curators, Satan worshipping Long Island teens, metaphysics obsessed television reporters, and to Peter and Olivia and their devastating final choices detailed in the last pages of this anthology, the fourteen stories of Phantom present their horrors differently, but they all ask: How does anyone live through this?
The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy & Horror 2010
Darkness surrounds us. We can find darkness anywhere: in a strange green stone etched with mysterious symbols; at a small town’s annual picnic; in a ghostly house that is easy to enter but not so easy to leave; behind the dumpster in the alley where a harpy lives; in The Nowhere, a place where car keys, toys, people disappear to; among Polar explorers; and, most definitely, within ourselves. Darkness flies from mysterious crates; surrounds children whose nightlights have vanished; and flickers between us at the movie theater. Darkness crawls from the past and is waiting in our future; and there’s always a chance that Halloween really is a door opening directly into endless shadow. Welcome to the dark. You may never want to leave. This inaugural volume of the year’s best dark fantasy and horror features more than 500 pages of dark tales from some of today’s finest writers of the fantastique. Chosen from a variety of sources, these stories are as eclectic and varied as the genre itself.
