(Spellmason): Anton Strout
Alexandra Belarus is a struggling artist living in New York City, even though her family is rich in real estate, including a towering Gothic Gramercy Park building built by her great-great-grandfather. But the truth of her bloodline is revealed when she is attacked on the street and saved by an inhumanly powerful winged figure. A figure who knows the Belarus name. Lexi's great-great-grandfather was a Spellmason - an artisan who could work magic on stone. But in his day, dark forces conspired against him and his, so he left a spell of protection on his family. Now that Lexi is in danger, the spell has awoken her ancestor's most trusted and fearsome creation: a gargoyle named Stanis. Lexi and Stanis are equally surprised to find themselves bound to each other. But as they learn to work together, they realize that only united can they save the city they both love.

The Western Territories, 1880. For four years, Civil War veteran and former U.S. Cavalry Captain Jonas P. Hollister has been rotting in a prison cell at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. His crime: lying about the loss of eleven soldiers under his command - who he claims were slaughtered by a band of nonhuman, blood-drinking demons.

Ordered by his King to carry out a cryptic command - kill a wicked sorcerer lord, seize his castle, and take his daughter as a wife - Alain de Crency expects a fierce battle. Instead he discovers a defenseless castle, the daughter missing, and the sorcerer dead, shrouded in a magnificent purple cloak. With no knowledge of the evil lurking within it, Alain takes the cloak as his own before investigating the whereabouts of his supposed betrothed. Upon Alain's arrival, Melisande, the sorcerer's daughter who begrudgingly learned her father's sinister trade, hides in plain sight as a servant. But Alain suspects this beautiful blonde knows more than she claims, and he resolves to uncover the truth - if he can resist his burning desire for her.

Richard E. Gropp
Something has happened in Spokane. The military has evacuated the city and locked it down. Even so, disturbing rumors and images seep out, finding their way onto the Internet, spreading curiosity, skepticism, and panic.

Dean Walker, an aspiring photographer, sneaks into the quarantined city in search of fame. What he finds will change him in unimaginable ways.

|The Slant Hug o'
Time: George Drury Smith
HOWL meets ULYSSES in a book like no other! George Drury Smith, iconic founder of the Beyond Baroque magazine and Literary/Arts Center in Venice, California, crafts an amazing alternate-history tale of invention, corporate control, and hidden agendas, all told through Smith's tour-de-force wordsmithing. "Playfully earnest and pleasantly baffling, 'The slant hug o' time' is a work like no other. Enabled by rhymes, puns, anagrams, science, pseudo-science, reason and unreason, it joyfully elides the past, present, and future. In other words: it's a slippery world out there, and welcome to it.

(Orthogonal Vol. 2): Greg Egan
The generation ship Peerless is in search of advanced technology capable of sparing their home planet from imminent destruction. In theory, the ship is traveling fast enough that it can traverse the cosmos for generations - and still return home only a few years after they departed. But a critical fuel shortage threatens to cut their urgent voyage short, even as a population explosion stretches the ship's life-support capacity to its limits. When the astronomer Tamara discovers the Object, a meteor whose trajectory will bring it within range of the Peerless, she sees a risky solution to the fuel crisis. Meanwhile, the biologist Carlo searches for a better way to control fertility, despite the traditions and prejudices of their society. As the scientists clash with the ship's leaders, they find themselves caught up in two equally dangerous revolutions: one in the sexual roles of their species, the other in their very understanding of the nature of matter and energy.
