Placeholder of  -51Necroscope by Brian Lumley

Harry Keogh is the man who can talk to the dead, the man for whom every grave willingly gives up its secrets, the one man who knows how to travel effortlessly through time and space to destroy the vampires that threaten all humanity. In Necroscope, Harry is startled to discover that he is not the only person with unusual mental powers–Britain and the Soviet Union both maintain super-secret, psychically-powered espionage organizations. But Harry is the only person who knows about Thibor Ferenczy, a vampire long buried in the mountains of Romania–still horribly alive, in undeath–and Thibor’s insane “offspring,” Boris Dragosani, who rips information from the souls of the dead in a terrible, ever-lasting form of torture.

Image Placeholder of - 62Eve of Darkness by Silvia Day

Cursed by God, hunted by demons, desired by Cain and Abel… All in a day’s work. For Evangeline Hollis, a long ago fling with a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks just became a disaster of biblical proportions. One night with a leather-clad man of mystery has led to a divine punishment: the Mark of Cain. Thrust into a world where sinners are drafted into service to kill demons, Eve’s learning curve is short. A longtime agnostic, she begrudgingly maneuvers through a celestial bureaucracy where she is a valuable but ill-treated pawn. She’s also become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling rivalry in history…

Poster Placeholder of - 5Earth Unaware by Orson Scott Card & Aaron Johnston

A hundred years before Ender’s Game, humans thought they were alone in the galaxy. Humanity was slowly making their way out from Earth to the planets and asteroids of the Solar System, exploring and mining and founding colonies. The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light. But the ship has other problems….

What if? Two little words that created the world of S. J. Day’s Eve of Darkness

What if

Eve of Darkness by Sylvia Day

Written by S. J. Day

In January, Tor will rerelease #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day’s Marked series, first published in 2009 under the name S.J. Day. Here, the author asks the “What ifs?” in this sexy urban fantasy series.

That’s the core question that sparks story premises. In the case of the Marked series, that simple question blossomed into hundreds more. The end result is a heroine and world that continually surprise and delight me.

What if an ordinary person was suddenly sucked into a heretofore unknown preternatural underground? What if she was completely mortal, with no fangs or claws or magical tricks? What if she had a close family unit, a great job, and an upscale condo on the beach in Orange County, CA — all of which would be jeopardized by her new circumstances? What if she wasn’t trained in combat techniques, was terrible with knives, and was clueless about the skills of her new supernatural enemies? What if everything was stacked against her—she’s an agnostic forced to work for God, a woman mentored by two on-again-off-again lovers, and a newbie with a big target stuck to her back because she’s important to important people?

The what ifs also encouraged me to explore different perspectives on familiar Biblical stories. What if Cain wasn’t a villain? What if Abel wasn’t a saint? What if the archangels are as famous and powerful in their mortal guises as they are in their celestial lives? The more I researched, the more it all fell into place. Some projects seem to take on a life of their own and the Marked series definitely did that for me.

The books were so much fun to write. The process was an experience unlike anything I’ve known before. Although Evangeline Hollis is an ordinary person in an extraordinary world, she is a force to be reckoned with because she makes her liabilities work as strengths—for instance, her agnosticism gives her a unique perspective. As a writer who considers herself more of a narrator than a creator, I have been amazed by her resourcefulness in getting out of the amazing amount of trouble she runs into. She manages to come out on top every time using mulish determination and keen intelligence. It’s easy for me to say that Eve is one of my favorites out of all my heroines.

So now it’s your turn to answer a question. What if you picked up Eve of Darkness on your next trip to the bookstore? Would you enjoy Eve’s adventures as much as I enjoyed writing them? I’d love for you to stop by my website and let me know!
