Ben Marcus NOTES FROM THE FOG STORIES To my family: Heidi, Delia, and Solomon 1 Cold Little Bird It started with bedtime. A coldness. A formality. Martin and Rachel tucked the boy in, as was their habit, then stooped to kiss him good night. Please dont do that, he said, turning to face the wall. They took it as teasing, flopped onto his bed to nuzzle and tickle him. The boy turned rigid, endured the cuddle, then barked out at them, I really dont like that Jonah Martin said, sitting up. I dont ...

Iversons Pits by Dan Simmons Introduction We Americans have a knack for turning our most beloved national shrines into something tacky and vulgar. Perhaps its because were too young to have a real sense of history perhaps its because our nationnot counting the Confederacyhas never been bombed or occupied or even invaded by a foreign power no, I dont count the British when they burned Washington City ... few Americans noticed and fewer cared, and there is little real sense of sacrifice to our ...

Still say he gotta get hisself a better lawyer, said Bren Dale, pushing himself back with a big cowboy boot on the edge of the table. Shit, ...

Acknowledgments As a bookish introvert, I enjoy nothing more than the challenge of living inside a big writing project. I have lived inside this one for quite a while. I havent been entirely on my own, though. In fact, without the magnificent contribution of a number of people, there would be no book. I hasten to add that while I have been greatly assisted by some excellent individuals, if ...

Faintly, through the whirl of cigarette smoke, she could see a waiter in a white jacket standing by the door, a bartender rattling a cocktail shaker behind the counter below her. As for the other customers, they were all either seated at the counter or else in boxes on the first floor, almost invisible ...

Nigel Thompson PHEIA For divers everywhere. This Edition I write my stories for fun. Most of my books have been written in the early morning at Starbucks before going to work in the days before I retired. The cost of my coffee and a croissant or bagel ran to about 6.50 a day. When you add that up over a year or so it costs a lot to write a book. I produce my books as Kindle books because the process is simple and free. I sell my books on Amazon for 0.99 because that is the lowest price Amazon ...

Neil Hanson THE CUSTOM OF THE SEA For Lynn, Jack and Drew Prologue The small boat was drifting in a vast expanse of empty ocean. The sun burned down from a sky the colour of brass and even the waves seemed flattened, oppressed by the heat. The oars lay idle and the faint breeze barely ruffled the makeshift sail four tattered shirts lashed together. Three gaunt, wild-eyed men sprawled in the bottom of the dinghy. Their skeletal bodies were emaciated and covered in sores, their feet and legs ...

WORK OF ART Sinclair Lewis 1 The flat roof of the American House, the most spacious and important hotel in Black Thread Centre, Connecticut, was lined with sheets of red-painted tin, each embossed with Phoenix, the Tin of Kings. Though it was only 6.02, this July morning in 1897, the roof was scorching. The tin was like a flat-iron, and the tar along the brick coping, which had bubbled all yesterday afternoon, was stinging to the fingers. Far below, in Putnam Street, a whole three stories down ...
