The Hum and the Shiver
by Alex Bledsoe
Paperback Book, 349 pages
No one knows where the Tufa came from, or how they ended up in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, yet when the first Europeans arrived, they were already there. Dark-haired, enigmatic, and suspicious of outsiders, the Tufa live quiet lives in the hills and valleys of Cloud County. While their origins may be lost to history, there are clues in their music–hints of their true nature buried in the songs they have passed down for generations.
Private Bronwyn Hyatt returns from Iraq wounded in body and in spirit, only to face the very things that drove her away in the first place: her family, her obligations to the Tufa, and her dangerous ex-boyfriend. But more trouble lurks in the mountains and hollows of her childhood home. Cryptic omens warn of impending tragedy, and a restless “haint” lurks nearby, waiting to reveal Bronwyn’s darkest secrets. Worst of all, Bronwyn has lost touch with the music that was once a vital part of her identity.
With death stalking her family, Bronwyn will need to summon the strength to take her place among the true Tufa and once again fly on the night winds. . . .
“The Hum and the Shiver “is a Kirkus Reviews Best of 2011 Science Fiction & Fantasy title.

Dr. Edith Vane and the Hares of Crawley Hall by Suzette Mayr
About the Book – Dr. Edith Vane and the Hares of Crawley Hall
Dr. Edith Vane and the Hares of Crawley Hall
by Suzette Mayr
Dr. Edith Vane, scholar of English literature, is contentedly ensconced at the University of Inivea. Her dissertation on pioneer housewife memoirist Beulah Crump-Withers is about to be published, and her job’s finally safe, if she only can fill out her AAO properly. She’s a little anxious, but a new floral blouse and her therapist’s repeated assurance that she is the architect of her own life should fix that. All should be well, really. Except for her broken washing machine, her fickle new girlfriend, her missing friend Coral, her backstabbing fellow professors, a cutthroat new dean – and the fact that the sentient and malevolent Crawley Hall has decided it wants them all out, and the hall and its hellish hares will stop at nothing to get rid of them.

The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror (New York Review Books Classics) by William Sloane
About the Book – The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror (New York Review Books Classics)
The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror (New York Review Books Classics)
by William Sloane
In the 1930s, William Sloane wrote two brilliant novels that gave a whole new meaning to cosmic horror. In “To Walk the Night,” Bark X and his college buddy Jerry Lister, a science whiz, head back to the old alma mater to catch a football game and to visit a cherished professor of astronomy. In the midst of the game, a strange inimical presence seems to grip the entire stadium; after, the two young men discover the body of their professor, consumed by fire; and before long Jerry is married to the professor’s uncannily beautiful, young widow, Selena, and settled in the Arizona desert, where there’s an unobstructed view of the stars–and of the darkness of space. In “Edge of Running Water,” Julian Blair, a brilliant electrophysicist, has retired to remotest Maine after the death of his beautiful young wife. After living as a recluse for years, he issues an urgent summons to a former student, Richard Sayles, now a well-regarded professor of psychology. At Setauket Point, Sayles finds a house shunned by suspicious locals and under the guard of an unpleasant and uncooperative housekeeper, Mrs. Walters. There is also stunning Anne, Blair’s sister-in-law. Meanwhile, Julian, dead to the world, stays locked in his study. “The Rim of Morning” two novels about the inescapable link between knowledge and sacrifice, the other, unspeakable, unknowable, unendurable side of the world we think we know. About the silence out there.

Subtitle: “Thrilling Adventures in Fantasy” Among the subjects covered, is “time travel”, “living prehistoric monsters of the deep”, “Alfred Hitchcock — a master of Sci-Fi as well as suspense”, “Bigfoot — a mystery finally solved?”, and “UFOs — a subject of reality and science fiction”. With this book (at approximately 9,712 words in length), I have returned to my short story roots. I feel that stories of science fiction give many of us a nice little departure from the difficult realities of life and a short vacation from our problems. While we know the stories are derived from fantasy, we still find pleasure in contemplating the “what ifs” they present to our adventurous minds. It is my hope that the stories and tributes within the chapters of this book will do this very thing for its readers. – Jim Lowrance TABLE OF CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONE:The Day I Killed the Kickaloo Lake Monster(A Fish Tale of Science Fiction) CHAPTER TWO:Time Traveling 30 Years to the Past and Back to the Future(Jolted from 2009 to 1979 in a Split Second) CHAPTER THREE:Time Traveling Radio Transmissions(The Air Fan Who Knew Too Much) CHAPTER FOUR:Alfred Hitchcock: Master of SciFi as well as Suspense(My Tribute to the World’s Greatest Movie Director) CHAPTER FIVE:Has the Mystery of Bigfoot Finally Been Solved?One Man’s Claim to Understanding the History of Sasquatch CHAPTER SIX:UFOs — A Subject of Science Fiction and RealityWhen Life Mimics the Movies or is it the other Way Around?
