Lovecraft’s Legacy

H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential modern horror writers. Lovecraft’s fiction is a category unto itself. Eschewing the traditional werewolves, vampires, and ghosts of most horror fiction, he wrote of dread Elder Gods and cosmic, earth shattering horrors. Lovecraft mined rich veins of terror uniquely his own, and wherever in the known and unknown universe his imagination sped, readers followed fascinated, enrapt, and terrified by the scope of his dark vision. More than fifty years after his death, Lovecraft’s fiction continues to influence each new generation of horror readers and writers. Lovecraft’s Legacy collects 13 stories by critically acclaimed, award winning horror and dark fantasy writers, including F. Paul Wilson, Brian Lumley, Gene Wolfe, and Gahan Wilson. With an introduction by Robert Bloch, author of Psycho, this splendid anthology pays well deserved homage to the late, great master of the weird tale.

From crime suspense Tom Curry’s ‘The Sign’ to hard boiled fiction ‘A Hand of Pinochle’ to modern noir ‘Soul’s Burning’ by Bill Pronzini, the scope of these 100 detective stories is as wide as the tales are short.

Henry ‘The Mystery of the Rue de Peychaud’, Charles Dickens ‘An Artful Touch’, Bret Harte ‘The Stolen Cigar Case’, Jack London ‘The Leopard Man’s Story’, R.L.

They can be born witches or made witches, and may mix simple love potions or volatile concoctions that threaten all we hold dear. Some resent not receiving the treatment they feel they deserve from lesser mortals; yet other witches don’t even realize that they wield any special influence at all. The many writers who take on this ever fascinating character so fundamentally human unlike her more paranormal, ghostly brethren include Juleen Brantingham ‘Burning in the Light’, Joe R. Landsdale ‘By the Hair of the Head’, Simon McCaffery ‘Blood Mary’, Terry Campbell ‘Retrocurses’, Lawrence Shimel ‘Coming Out of the Broom Closet’, and a coven of others.

Great Writers and Kids Write Spooky Stories

A collection of shadowy mystery stories includes works by prominent mystery authors and their children and grandchildren, including Jonathan Kellerman, Scott Turow, Joan Lowery Nixon, and Carole Nelson Douglas.

100 Vicious Little Vampire Stories

From INTRODUCTION: What is a vampire? Nearly a century ago, this question wasn’t difficult to answer. If you subscribed to the image of the vampire immortalized in Stoker’s 1897 novel, Dracula, the vampire was evil incarnate, a creature whose supernatural existence and gruesome means of sustenance contradicted the norms by which civilized human beings measured what was natural and morally proper. With his nocturnal habits, the vampire served as a potent symbol for humanity’s unenlightened superstitions; in his evocation of primal darkness, he became a counter symbol of the divinity who turned the darkness of the void into light.

Miskatonic University

For everyone whose life has been touched by cancer, One Renegade Cell tells the story of the search for the ultimate causes of this dreaded disease. ‘One Renegade Cell offers a breathtaking picture, both wonderful and frightening, of the fantastic intricacy of aberrant cellular functioning.’ New York Times ‘Part primer, part history and part meditation. One Renegade Cell succeeds on all counts.’ Wall Street Journal One of the leading cancer researchers in the world, Robert A. Weinberg is perfectly suited to describe the search for cancer’s origins from the early days of this century to the present. Presuming little knowledge of biology, he tells how a cancer causing virus was first discovered in 1909, how the correlation was made between chemical carcinogens and cancer, and how oncogenes the genes that can turn a cell malignant work. He explains clearly how malignant cells send messages to one another and also block the messages of normal cells. Finally, Weinberg predicts that cancer prevention may depend on our ability to understand the mysterious chemical clock that regulates our cells’ most basic functions. One Renegade Cell offers a concise, accessible route into the complex and often daunting world of cancer and cancer research.

100 Astounding Little Alien Stories

Is the alien merely the inhuman? Does it refer only to what falls outside the boundaries of normal human experience? What is ‘normal’ human experience anyway? Does our conception of what is alien change over time, as we become more acclimated to the new and strange? Such are the provocative, unanswerable questions raised by these one hundred astounding tales, a collection of what is probably the most popular type of science fiction story: the alien story. As the vast number of alien stories have been written over the last two centuries show, it is impossible to come to a once and for all understanding of what is meant by ‘alien.’ But such a situation makes a reader’s journey through the genre all the more exciting and fully in keeping with the wild but clear sighted imaginativeness that marks really good science fiction. With this well planned volume, journeying readers can make one hundred encounters with as many different life forms in a space of time that would normally provide one encounter, maybe two.

A Biographical Dictionary of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists

While there have been numerous books published over the past few decades on the subject of science fiction and fantasy books and movies, almost no attention has been paid to science fiction and fantasy artists. Although a number of ‘picture books’ emerged in recent years, only a limited number have provided any significant information. This comprehensive biographical dictionary represents one of the first research efforts in the field of science fiction art. It is not an art book, but rather a book about artists. As one of the first comprehensive biographical dictionaries, it was intended to serve as a catalyst to stimulate further scholarship.

Horror of the 20th Century

As long as there have been storytellers, audiences have sought stories that make their flesh creep and their blood curdle. These are the tales that have been read furtively under covers or retold in whispers by the light of campfires. From Horace Walpole to Stephen King, the masters of horror have offered us such tales of the eerie and the spectral. Author Robert Weinberg has assembled the best of these phantasmal visions in Horror of the Twentieth Century. Here is a vivid recounting of the writers, illustrators, publishers, actors, and filmmakers who for more than two centuries satisfied the fluctuating tastes of their audiences. Every media from comics, paperbacks, hardcovers and movies is cataloged.

The Science of Anime

Anime, the name given to Japanese superhero animation, has swept the United States. More than two dozen Japanese cartoon series already appear on U.S. television, with more on the way. And with the vast leaps being made in animation technology, the anime explosion shows no sign of abating. One of the main topics of anime is advanced technology and how it will affect the human race. Movies like Akira have touched upon the power of the atom and the advances and tragedies nuclear power will bring to the Earth. Stories like Ghost in the Shell explore the limits of human and machine interface and artificial intelligence. More than any other genre in the entertainment field, anime explores the future of science and technology, and The Science of Anime provides a fascinating and fun look at the science behind it.

The Science of Stephen King

Advance Praise’What a treasure house is this book! Robots, space aliens, Einstein, black holes, time travel these themes, and much more, from Stephen King’s amazing books are opened up like toy chests. It’s tremendous fun, entirely educational, and a great tribute to King.’ Peter Straub’A fun, fun read.’ F. Paul Wilson’The Science of Stephen King appeals to both the scientist and the longtimereader of Stephen King in me. Gresh and Weinberg use concepts from King’s fiction as launching pads for in depth explorations of concepts as diverse as ESP, pyrokinesis, time travel, artificial intelligence, quantum chemistry, alternate realities, string theory, and the possibility that we’ll be visited by aliens or that we’ll face a global pandemic. Much of what Stephen King writes about in his novels is closer to reality than you might think.’ Bev Vincent, Ph.D., author of The Road to the Dark Tower’A superb overview of King’s use of scientific concepts in his stories. And considering all the scary talk lately about pandemic flu, their chapter on The Stand is timely as hell.’ Stephen Spignesi, author of The Complete Stephen King Encyclopedia’Just as Sagan and Asimov popularized science to the mas*ses by making itentertaining and informative, so too do Gresh and Weinberg. Compulsively readable and thought provoking.’ George Beahm, author of The Stephen King Companion
