The Handmaid's Tale for a new generation . . .

In the lands of Bethel, where the Prophet's word is law, Immanuelle Moore's very existence is blasphemy.

The daughter of a union with an outsider that cast her once-proud family into disgrace, Immanuelle does her best to worship the Father, follow Holy Protocol and lead a life of submission, devotion and absolute conformity, like all the women in the settlement.

But a chance mishap lures her into the forbidden Darkwood that surrounds Bethel - a place where the first prophet once pursued and killed four powerful witches. Their spirits are still walking there, and they bestow a gift on Immanuelle: the diary of her dead mother, who Immanuelle is shocked to learn once sought sanctuary in the wood.

Fascinated by secrets in the diary, Immanuelle finds herself struggling to understand how her mother could have consorted with the witches. But when she begins to learn grim truths about the Church and its history, she realises the true threat to Bethel is its own darkness. And if Bethel is to change, it must begin with her . . .

It begins with one body. A pair of medical examiners find themselves facing a dead man who won't stay dead. It spreads quickly.

In a Midwestern trailer park, an African American teenage girl and a Muslim immigrant battle newly-risen friends and family. On a US aircraft carrier, living sailors hide from dead ones while a fanatic preaches the gospel of a new religion of death. At a cable news station, a surviving anchor keeps broadcasting, not knowing if anyone is watching, while his undead colleagues try to devour him. In DC, an autistic federal employee charts the outbreak, preserving data for a future that may never come.

Everywhere, people are targeted by both the living and the dead. We think we know how this story ends. We. Are. Wrong.

500 years ago: eight martyrs were burnt to death.

30 years ago: two teenagers vanished without trace.

Two months ago: the vicar committed suicide.

Welcome to Chapel Croft. For Rev Jack Brooks and teenage daughter Flo it's supposed to be a fresh start. New job, new home. But, as Jack knows, the past isn't easily forgotten. And in a close-knit community where the residents seem as proud as they are haunted by Chapel Croft's history, Jack must tread carefully. Ancient superstitions as well as a mistrust of outsiders will be hard to overcome. Yet right away Jack has more frightening concerns.

Why is Flo plagued by visions of burning girls? Who's sending them sinister, threatening messages? And why did no one mention that the last vicar killed himself?

Chapel Croft's secrets lie deep and dark as the tomb. Jack wouldn't touch them if not for Flo - anything to protect Flo. But the past is catching up with Chapel Croft - and with Jack. For old ghosts with scores to settle will never rest . . .

The intense brand-new military horror series from "one of the Major Horror Authors of the 21st Century" - American Library Association Trained To Kill. Haunted By The Past. Fighting For Their Souls. Everything is dangerous in Afghanistan, nothing more so than the mission of a Tactical Support Team or T.S.T. All veterans, these men and women spend seasons in hell, to not only try and fix what's broken in each of them, but also to make enough bank to change their fortunes. But seven months later, safely back on American soil, they feel like there's something left undone. They're meeting people who already know them, remembering things that haven't happened, hearing words that don't exist. And they're all having the same dream... a dream of a sky that won't stop burning. "Ochse's writing finds the beauty in the language of brutality, which will appeal to fans of Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy" Booklist, ALA. "Burning Sky represents the pinnacle of the military horror genre, and will be difficult, if not impossible, to surpass." Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer

Tim and Abi have always been different from their peers. Precociously bright, they spend their evenings in their parents' attic discussing the macabre and unexplained, zealously re-reading books on folklore, hauntings and the supernatural. In particular, they are obsessed with photographs of ghostly apparitions and the mix of terror and delight they provoke in their otherwise boring and safe childhoods.

But when Tim and Abi decide to fake a photo of a ghost to frighten an unpopular school friend, they set in motion a deadly and terrifying chain of events that neither of them could have predicted, and are forced to confront the possibility that what began as a callous prank might well have taken on a malevolent life of its own.

An unsettling literary ghost story set between a claustrophobic British suburban town and a menacing Suffolk manor, THE APPARITION PHASE is an unnerving novel, which, like all the best ghost stories, pushes us repeatedly over the line between rational explanation and inexplicable fear. It asks us to consider what might be lurking in the shadows, and questions what is real and what is simply a trick of the mind - and whether there's really a difference between the two.

Die spook in sy huis kry alleenloper Paul nie verdryf nie, al probeer hy hoe hard om met ingewikkelde resepte sy dae om te bak. Sy lewe verander onomkeerbaar wanneer hy by ’n moord ingesleep word. Nou is sy lewe ook ’n koerantopskrif, nes dié wat hy elke nag bekook vir die Shrien Dewanisaak by die nuuskantoor waar hy werk.

Die skaduwêreld van sado-masochisme kom tydens die Dewaniondersoek aan die lig: ’n wêreld goed bekend aan Div. Fisieke pyn is hoe hy vergeet van sy afgetakelde pa en sy junkie-broer. Wanneer die gedaante van die vermoorde Anni Dewani lewensgroot aan Div verskyn, besef hy dat dít wat by hom spook nie slegs metafories is nie.

Wat jaag ons, en wat maak ons vry? In ’n Spook in die huis, François Loots se sewende roman, word die kompleksiteite rondom ontvlugting en verlossing op boeiende en verrassende wyse verken.
