by Ken StarkSomething is wrong in Arcadia Falls. The first boy vanished without a trace and with just as little fanfare. Even the second disappearance amounted to little more than a few passing remarks and another name skipped over in the classroom roll call. As far as Riverside High and the rest of Arcadia Falls were concerned, it seemed, it was as if nothing had happened at all. Tyler John was no different. He had barely given the matter a second thought, but then a wrong turn sent him on a path straight into the dark heart of the mystery, and the deeper he peered into the shadows, the more he realized that something was looking back. Now, the hunter has become the hunted and time is running out. With nowhere else to turn, it's up to Tyler and his handful of friends to stop the evil thing that's been preying on Arcadia Falls, and if they fail, they might just be the next ones to vanish. Yes, something is desperately wrong in Arcadia Falls, and it's like nothing anyone has ever seen before.

A twenty-nine-year-old Arthur Conan Doyle practices medicine by day and writes at night.

Once there, he is offered one month's employment to assist the Metropolitan Police as a "consultant" in their hunt for the serial killer soon to be known as Jack the Ripper. Doyle agrees on the stipulation his old professor of surgery, Professor Joseph Bell--Doyle's inspiration for Sherlock Holmes--agrees to work with him. Bell agrees, and soon the two are joined by Miss Margaret Harkness, an author residing in the East End who knows how to use a Derringer and serves as their guide and companion. Pursuing leads through the dank alleys and courtyards of Whitechapel, they come upon the body of a savagely murdered fifth victim.

by Anya PavelleFor fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Gender Game comes a captivating new story like no other. The Pestilence sweeps the globe with terrifying speed. A group of survivors finds an island sanctuary. Three generations later, no one has heard from the outside world in years. The old radio only crackles with static. The Pestilence either finished its job or the world tore itself apart. In the Village of Lehom, Leilani has been called to court as a Virtue by the King. Going to court means losing her independence and self-respect. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a choice. Leilani decides to take a stand; the King be damned. She plans a daring escape and sets in motion a series of events that will shake the foundation of her village and the island to its core. What reviewers are saying: "This is an engaging story with complex but believable characters and an interesting presentation of story- a journal, a retelling of the past, and an exploration of the present. Anya moves seamlessly among those sources to develop themes of resilience, courage and integrity within three unique cultures. A great read....one of the few books that demands both a prequel and a sequel! Thank you, Anya, for sharing this with us all!" -StoryCollector "If you're a fan of Divergent, The Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games, this is the perfect book for you. I love a good dystopian thriller and Moon Hunters did not disappoint. While borrowing themes from the classics, the plot is unique. The characters are very well developed and you can't help but rally behind them. The story pulled me in within the first few pages and I had a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend it." -Eric S. "I highly recommend "The Moon Hunters" by Anya Pavelle. It's a great story of standing up for what you believe in. It also features a strong female lead character. The book is a thrilling example of excellent post-apocalyptic sci-fi at its best. The author crafts a tale that is both an epic worldbuilder and riveting adventure. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy. You'll be glad you did." -DTM

Comrades, Concubines and Lovers
by Graham HunterFor years I have been telling my travel stories to friends at dinner parties, many of whom thought they were too incredulous to be true but most of them telling me that I must write a book. Well here it is, in more detail than I have ever dared to give before, describing a period from the 1980s when the world was a very different place to what it is now. Some of my stories could never be repeated as countries have changed, borders have been shifted and leaders toppled. In a world where information technology gives us instant access to world events as they happen, I describe a period where some International telephone calls had to be booked 24 hours in advance and once inside some countries, my colleagues would not know where I was or what I was doing until I came out. The telex, cumbersome and noisy, was the main means of international communication. My chapters jump around from country to country as I did but what I have tried to achieve is to show the incredible differences in lifestyles and customs, some of which got me into deep trouble. From the Far East where everything was available to the depths of the Iron Curtain where people had to queue for hours for a loaf of bread, I have tried to describe little details that would be impossible to know unless you were there. One innocent social faux pas nearly had me staying in China to get married! I have enjoyed the company of some of the most beautiful girls in the world and fell hopelessly in love with one from behind the Iron Curtain, so much so that I proposed to her not knowing whether this was possible or whether I could get her out if the marriage was allowed to happen. My struggle with the Soviet Authorities and the KGB lasted nearly two years and often seemed an impossible task. I ate food that would make you shudder, from "cow's appendix soup with baby birds" to fried fish where the head was still alive watching you eat it! Due to the large number of flights I was making it was inevitable that I would experience some scary moments, many of which I have described in some detail which will make a lot of nervous fliers queasy. Every story in this book is true, only the names have changed. I hope that you will share my excitement and emotions as I take you through my personal experiences in my travels around the world from the 1980's and beyond.
