The reason for Cargrave’s invitation is now evident, and he attempts to alleviate the problem, knowing full well that it is the man’s mind, not his body, that is responsible. The creation of supernatural creatures is semirationalized as an untapped power of the human mind, but the stories themselves are clearly fantasy. He and his grandfather make frequent alterations to their farmhouse, removing partitions and boarding up the windows on the second floor. Alaric Bond has just released the latest book in the Fighting Sail series, The Blackstrap Station, which is now available in ebook formats worldwide and will be released in paperback shortly.

One of the Pevensies, Edmund, has been corrupted by the witch’s temptations and betrays his siblings, although his visit to the witch’s lair—littered with her enemies whom she has transformed into statues—convinces him that he has chosen poorly. The image of the Cenobites was so fascinating that it became a franchise, with four sequels to date, although Barker is no longer directly involved. One of the survivors of that earlier book has grown up, becomes a professional writer, and returns to his hometown after a series of personal and emotional crises, where he is confronted by apparitions of people from his past.

Cady’s story involves the supernatural, but it is the human characters who take center stage, displaying the great lengths we go to in order to hold on to what we have lost. Deciding that he probably hallucinated the entire thing, he closes the curtains and tells himself to forget about it, but of course that is impossible. Blood and Gold (2001) jumps back in time to ancient Rome, and that setting helps freshen the theme somewhat. Overview: In the Eighteenth Century, in a small village in Ireland, Redmond Barry is a young farm boy in love with his cousin Nora Brady.

Using both hands, she heaved it out and was showered in a puff of dust. But Gently Day (1943) is another time travel story with a hint of paradox, as the traveler interacts with his own ancestors. Lord and Lady Redesdale and their seven children are eccentrics from start to finish. Here’s another great time-travel movie, in which a man is at war with himself in a kind of echo of Twelve Monkeys. It tells the story of Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African, captured as an adolescent and sold into slavery in the United States, and follows his life and the lives of his descendants in the U.

Hard-boiled: These are gritty “noir” stories with grim details and tough, hard-nosed detectives. So only a couple of former video game champions from the 80s (Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage) can save the Earth. This is no nostalgic portrait—Howard is often drawn to examine the darker side of life, and the ways in which a family can be dysfunctional. Although it was less popular during the Victorian era, 19th-century Gothic fiction was among the best-known and most-read literature of the late 20th century and early 21st century, including works by writers such as Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily and Anne Bronte, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Oscar Wilde.

These are the books put out in monthly "lines," such as Silhouette Special Edition and Harlequin American Romances. Then look at The Scar: “Fennec” tells you quite a lot about the character, if you look it up [it’s a small African fox with big ears]. Hence, stories of devils, demons, demonic possession, dark witchcraft, evil sorcerers or warlocks, and figures like the Antichrist would qualify.

Derleth also published several short stories that were described as collaborations with H. Despite the fact that the series is clearly aimed at younger readers, Alexander sometimes uses very dark imagery to add a distinctive color to his stories. In 1912, Turner Buckminster and his parents have just moved to Phippsburg, Maine. We hope you find something to satisfy your taste for the epic. Wild Blood (1993) and Walking Wolf (1995) are both werewolf stories. Hautala had by now emerged as one of the most interesting writers in the horror field and was growing more popular even as the genre in general began to lose the appeal it had enjoyed during the 1980s.

Marked is the first book in a series, and happily for this reader avoids the painful cliffhanger endings often found in series books, while still leaving enough loose ends to hook the reader. Lansdale (1986) After-the-bomb stories are almost always the province of science fiction writers, but occasionally someone finds a way to turn that device into a tale of fantasy and horror. As the story unfolds, Andy shows that he is a not a typical prisoner. Brust’s remaining fantasies include Brokedown Palace (1986), a low-key fantasy adventure related to the Khaavren books.

Although Tregardis indulges simple curiosity rather than any overt desire to acquire power, he is doomed simply by virtue of having interposed himself among forces too powerful to control. A succession of supernatural events takes place before Manfred is thwarted, though not killed, and much of the castle is destroyed by a supernaturally projected giant who anoints the imprisoned house guest as Manfred’s successor.
