What lurks in the shadows...? A haunting novel of love, loss... and flesh-eating trolls, from the undisputed master of the macabre, Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Dean Koontz and Clive Barker. 'One of the eeriest, and one of the most immediate, horror novels of recent decades' - Publishers Weekly Everything changed for Ed that day in the fall semester when he got a letter from Holly, the girl he loved: 'Dear Ed,' it began, 'I will always cherish the times we had...' Holly was in love with someone else. It was as if his whole world had changed in a second. That night, heartbroken and half mad with despair, Ed couldn't sleep, so he decided to go for a walk. But it's a dark, scary night in the lonesome October, and Ed is not alone... There are others out there in the night, roaming the streets, lurking in the darkness - wanting to show Ed just how different his world could be. Some of them are enticing, like the beautiful girl who wants to teach Ed about the wonders of the night. Some are disturbing and threatening. Some are deadly... and in search of prey. What readers are saying about Night in the Lonesome October: 'This book is fantastic! It had me gripped from beginning to end! The storyline was superb, with twists and turns that keep you captivated' 'This is an absolutely astounding book. This displays a natural talent at his best. The way Laymon writes is ingenious' 'The best thing about this novel was its atmosphere - the feeling of being out on empty streets and the nefarious things that may be lurking in the corners of any suburban town'

Explores the science and creative process behind Poe’s cosmological treatise. In 1848, almost a year and a half before Edgar Allan Poe died at the age of forty, his book Eureka was published. In it, he weaved together his scientific speculations about the universe with his own literary theory, theology, and philosophy of science. Although Poe himself considered it to be his magnum opus, Eureka has mostly been overlooked or underappreciated, sometimes even to the point of being thought an elaborate hoax. Remarkably, however, in Eureka Poe anticipated at least nine major theories and developments in twentieth-century science, including the Big Bang theory, multiverse theory, and the solution to Olbers’ paradox. In this book—the first devoted specifically to Poe’s science side—David N. Stamos, a philosopher of science, combines scientific background with analysis of Poe’s life and work to highlight the creative and scientific achievements of this text. He examines Poe’s literary theory, theology, and intellectual development, and then compares Poe’s understanding of science with that of scientists and philosophers from his own time to the present. Next, Stamos pieces together and clarifies Poe’s theory of scientific imagination, which he then attempts to update and defend by providing numerous case studies of eureka moments in modern science and by seeking insights from comparative biography and psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and evolution. “Edgar Allan Poe, Eureka, and Scientific Imagination is the most comprehensive treatment of Eureka that has yet been published. It is staggeringly thorough in its analysis of Poe’s book, but it also shows how Poe’s theories of cosmogony and cosmology ramify into his fiction and poetry, especially the tales of ratiocination. Stamos takes Eureka seriously, and he does so with the empirical undergirding of vast amounts of scientific scholarship and literary criticism.” — James M. Hutchisson, author of Poe

A date of a lifetime... or a date with death? Friday Night in Beast House is the final nightmare in the Beast House Chronicles by Richard Laymon - a nightmare in which your worst fears and darkest desires collide... Perfect for fans of Clive Barker and Dean Koontz. The legendary Beast House, once home to unspeakable acts of agony and murder, is now a decrepit tourist attraction where the curious go for cheap thrills and daily tours. These days few actually believe the stories of slaughter and sexual torture are true, or that the beast really exists. But in the silence of the night, the cellar door of Beast House opens once again... Mark and Alison snuck into Beast House after the tours were over for a midnight rendezvous. Mark hopes to get lucky but Alison seems more interested in the gruesome legends. But if the beast is only a legend, who's responsible for the mutilated carcass of a dog outside? And why is the padlock missing from the cellar door? Will this be the date of a lifetime or a date with death? What readers are saying about Friday Night in Beast House: 'Another brilliant book from Laymon that I absolutely could not put down' 'I really enjoyed reading this book; it was suspenseful, creepy and funny' 'An impressive page turner'
