Harper Voyager’s FEAST: HARVEST OF DREAMS, by Merri
Destefano (pictured), is a book you don’t want to finish. The story is
fast-paced and the characters are likable, but more than anything else, the
setting is a place you don’t wish to leave.
With WORLD WAR Z soon to become a Brad Pitt movie, THE
WALKING DEAD a hit on prime-time cable and Jane Austen mashups flying off
shelves, are the undead beginning to get a bit stale? Maybe not. Although
technically not a zombie novel—monster bites don’t infect victims, they just
hurt really bad—Matthew Costello’s VACATION (Thomas Dunne Books) adds a new
twist to the genre.
Stephen King isn’t short on plaudits for his many diverse
achievements, but fans with short memories may have forgotten that the author
was an early adopter and champion of on-line publishing. Over cries of “fad” from
many in print media, King years ago lent name-brand credibility to the e-book
by releasing his unfinished novel THE PLANT and short tale RIDING THE BULLET as on-line exclusives. King’s story UR made its debut in glowing liquid crystal,
and he recently granted visitors to his website a number of free downloadable
chapters from an early version of UNDER THE DOME called THE CANNIBALS. That
fearless, forward mindset earned King a 2000 Time magazine cover and feature
article praising his vision, so it’s no surprise to see King continuing his
Internet infatuation, with his new e-novella MILE 81 (Simon & Schuster)
speeding across unwary computer screens everywhere.

A grotesque serial killer with a penchant for wood carving
and a dark entity team up for eerie house haunting and rabid bloodletting while
the local sheriff works to keep his town and his daughter safe and the whole story
under wraps, in Mark Kidwell’s debut novel, BUMP.
Unfolding in the spring of 1890, OSCAR WILDE AND THE VAMPIRE MURDERS (Touchstone) is the fourth installment in Gyles Brandreth’s series featuring writer/poet/wit/dandy/philosopher Oscar Wilde as a highly sophisticated, eloquent and, in typical “Wilde” fashion, self-indulgent sleuth.
Garry Charles’ TRANQUIL DISTURBANCES (KHP Publishers) is a
knockout combination of two terror-inducing short stories. In the first half of
the narrative, a group of maniacal killers find themselves against an entire
town of cannibals. In the second half, innocent people are slowly turning
insane because of a flesh-eating virus. Full of dark imagination, these horror
stories have vivid characters that leap right off the page.
