Summary: Fallen angels, demons, lycanthropes, monsters and even a disembodied hand (or is it), Outside the Wire is a collection of six previously published short stories about things we don’t want to let in, all anthologized for your reading pleasure.
Summary: It is the autumn of 1938 when Julia Kaufmann meets Erich Schmidt while studying medicine at the German University in Prague. With Hitler’s army soon to invade the city and the terror of World War II looming, it is the worst of times for a Jew and a German to fall in love. As the excitement of the eugenics movement gives way to outright genocide, and the fear sweeping across Europe grows into madness, Julia and Erich find themselves forced to travel two very different paths—ones which will determine the fate of their love and, ultimately, the fate of their souls.
A Perfect Madness takes us on a journey back to a dark time when the fight for survival often eclipsed the fight for the truth. Beautifully and provocatively written, it examines the crippling effects of fear on the human mind, asking painful questions of moral choice we cannot afford to leave unanswered. About the Author: Frank Marsh was a trial attorney for twenty-five years and then a university professor of philosophy, law, and bioethics. He has published six books on bioethics, numerous articles, and scripted documentaries dealing with medicine, genetics, and law. He also is the author of the novel Rebekka’s Children.
Summary: Before Riley Blackthorne can take on Grade Five demons, she has to trap her very first. Her debut solo trapping experience should be a breeze, just a harmless Grade One after all. But throw in some dippy hippies (whose peace signs and Patchouli really aren’t driving any demons away), one mischievous demon, and a run-in with the police, and Riley might not be able to pull it off…
Summary: “The boy was named Pence because he was made from a potato grown close to the fence, or so he gathered.” With all the wrong proportions of courage and common sense, a head that is a mite on the fat side and a mouth too big for any respectable vegetable, Pence will have you laughing out loud to the bitter end.
This is a dark story. A lot of people get their hands cut off. There are deadly curses, kidnapping, decapitation, and a pair of lovers’ lifelong dreams dashed to pieces. Most of that goes right over Pence’s head.
He has bigger things to worry about.
