Dracula, Bram Stoker
1 Dracula
Bram Stoker UK Wordsworth Editions 1993 185326086X / 9781853260865 Soft cover New Book B-format 
Introduction and Notes by Dr David Rogers, Kingston University. "There he lay looking as if youth had been half-renewed, for the white hair and moustache were changed to dark iron-grey, the cheeks were fuller, and the white skin seemed ruby-red underneath; the mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck. Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst the swollen flesh, for the lids and pouches underneath were bloated. It seemed as if the whole awful creature were simply gorged with blood; he lay like a filthy leech, exhausted with his repletion." Thus Bram Stoker, one of the greatest exponents of the supernatural narrative, describes the demonic subject of his chilling masterpiece 'Dracula', a truly iconic and unsettling tale of vampirism. AUTHOR: Abraham "Bram" Stoker (8 November 1847 - 20 April 1912) was an Irish writer of novels and short stories, who is best known today for his 1897 horror novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known for being the personal assistant of the actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.

5 Life Expectancy [used book]
Dean Koontz UK Harper Collins 2005 0007197004 / 9780007197002 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
The new thriller from Dean Koontz is an emotional rollercoaster telling the story of five days in the life of an ordinary man -- a story that will challenge the way you look at good and evil, life and death. Jimmy Tock comes into the world on the very night his grandfather leaves it. As a violent storm rages outside the hospital, Rudy Tock spends long hours walking the corridors between the expectant fathers' waiting room and his dying father's bedside. It's a strange vigil made all the stranger when, at the very height of the storm's fury, Josef Tock suddenly sits up in bed and speaks coherently for the first and last time since his stroke. What he says before he dies is that there will be five dark days in the life of his grandson -- five dates whose terrible events Jimmy will have to prepare himself to face. The first is to occur in his 20th year; the second in his 23rd year; the third in his 28th; the fourth in his 29th; the fifth in his 30th. Rudy is all too ready to discount his father's last words as a dying man's delusional rambling. But then he discovers that Josef also predicted the moment of his grandson's birth to the minute, as well as his exact height, weight, and the fact that Jimmy would be born with syndactyly -- the unexplained anomaly of fused digits on his left foot. Suddenly, the old man's predictions take on a chilling significance. What terrifying events await Jimmy on these five dark days? What nightmares will he face? What challenges must he survive? As the novel unfolds, picking up Jimmy's story at each of these crisis points, the path he must follow will defy every expectation. And with each crisis he faces, he will move closer to a fate he could never have imagined. For who Jimmy Tock is and what he must accomplish on the five days his world turns is a mystery as dangerous as it is wondrous -- a struggle against an evil so dark and pervasive only the most extraordinary of human spirits can shine through.

For author Martin Stillwater, life couldn't be more perfect. He and Paige are happy together; their two daughters, Emily and Charlotte, are intelligent and healthy; and his novels are achieving long-hoped-for levels of success. So why does he feel such dread, experience sudden blackouts? The killer doesn't know his own name, only the name he uses. He has no family, no friends, no home. He cannot recall who gives him his assignments, and he doesn't know why his targets must die. Now, however, he senses that in a town he can't yet envision, a life awaits him, a place to call home, with family and friends. Charlotte knows something is wrong: the man moves and sounds like Daddy, but he doesn't smile as quickly or as often as usual. And when he does smile, he seems to be pretending. Daddy isn't Daddy.

Odd Thomas #1 Odd Thomas [used book], Dean Koontz
7 Odd Thomas #1 Odd Thomas [used book]
Dean Koontz UK Harper Collins 2004 0007130732 / 9780007130733 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
The new novel from the internationally bestselling author of The Face Many people in Pico Mundo think Odd Thomas is some sort of psychic: perhaps a clairvoyant, a thaumaturge, seer, something. None but a handful know that he sees the restless dead, those with unfinished business and, sometimes, plenty of postmortem rage. The dead are sensitive to the living. They have walked this path ahead of us and know our fears, our failings, our desperate hopes. People often are frightened by the prospect of opening their minds and hearts to the truth of a universe far more complex and meaningful than the material world that their education tells them is the sum of all things. Even in chaos, there is order, purpose, and strange meaning that invites -- but often thwarts -- investigation and understanding. The day begins as uncannily still as dawn on Judgment Day one breath before the sky cracks open. Odd's sixth sense is alert to the imminence of an event that will change himself and his world. It attaches itself to the man eating a massive breakfast in the restaurant where Odd is an acclaimed fry cook. This is a man with an appetite for operatic terror. The violence he craves is of the most extreme variety: multiple untimely deaths spiced with protracted horror. Tomorrow. Odd's fears are first for Stormy Llewellyn, his one true love. Stormy believes that our passage through this world is intended to toughen us for the next life. She says that if we come up to muster, we will be conscripted into an army of souls engaged in some great mission in the next world. Those who fail, simply cease to exist. In short, Stormy sees this life as boot camp. One of the implications of her cosmology is that the many terrors we know here are an inoculation against worse in the world to come. But the horrors of this world are closing in on her fast, and on countless others. Odd will have to work fast and clever to save everything that's dear to him.

A supernatural thriller from 'America's most popular suspense novelist' (Rolling Stone): his most chilling, gripping and original novel to date. Home for ten-year-old Fric Manheim is a vast Bel Air mansion. Somebody has to live there. His father, who owns it, is Hollywood's biggest star -- The Face -- but he's hardly ever in Hollywood. Fric's mother went her own way long ago, though she still has her own suite in the house, and a phone line -- it gets as few calls as line no.24, which is for receiving phone calls from the dead. Fric is pretty well home alone most of the time, with just the housekeeper Mrs McBee and the security chief Ethan Truman, Ex-LAPD. Fric would like to tell them about the pervert who rings him but he doesn't. He would like to tell his father, but when your father is The Face there is no chance of a private phone call. Anyway, he doesn't really believe that Moloch is coming to get him like the caller says. But he does carefully prepare a hiding place ...Ethan meanwhile is worried on account of the six black boxes addressed to The Face that have been delivered to the mansion, each containing cryptic, maybe sinister objects, snails, the scrabble letters WOE, an apple with a doll's eye in its core. Is the weirdo that sent them threatening The Face? Then phone line 24 starts ringing and its voicemail is activated. Only The Face and his spiritual adviser Ming du Lac have a key to the all-white room where the phone is. Ethan doesn't -- and though he will track down the source of the black boxes, he won't understand what they mean without the help of the caller to line no. 24. By the time he realizes this the worst will already have happened ...

The new thriller from Dean Koontz is a novel of surpassing suspense and visceral terror as doomsday dawns. On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Niel Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain. It has haunted their dreams through the night, and now they find an eerily luminous and golden downpour that drenches their small Californian mountain town. As hours pass they hear news of extreme weather phenomena across the globe. An obscuring fog turns once familiar streets into a ghostly labyrinth. By evening, the town has lost all communication with the outside world. First TV and radio go dead, then the Internet and phone lines. The young couple gathers together with some neighbours, sensing a threat they cannot identify or even imagine. The night brings strange noises, and mysterious lights drift among the trees. The rain diminishes with the dawn but a moody grey-purple twilight prevails. Within the misty gloom the small band will encounter something that reveals in a terrifying instant what is happening to the world -- something that is hunting them with ruthless efficiency.

Werewolves reveals the shocking role that werewolves have played in some of history's most significant events. Fear the full moon; for on that day of lunacy the terrible wrath of the werewolves is unleashed. For thousands of years, from ancient Greek chronicles to modern news reports, from the depths of the darkest forests to dimly lit city streets, these dread beasts have stalked us in the realms of shadow and nightmare. Now, they are awakening. This book is the only thing standing between humanity and an overwhelming horde of snarling, ferocious lycanthropes. It reveals the secret societies devoted to studying their condition, providing information on where werewolves live, and what they do to survive. It illustrates the startling variety of werewolf subspecies, as diverse as humanity itself, collecting reports of skinwalkers, hengeyokai, and other shapeshifters from across the world. Werewolves offers the dearly bought information from those that have hunted them down through the centuries - the best techniques to find and slay these creatures of the night.
