Ben's back - and this time, he means business. Family business...

Benedict Macallan, wonder-worker malgré lui, has travelled the length and breadth of Europe and still discovered no family like his own. Maybe Macallan blood really is a biological sport, a freak of evolution.

What Ben does discover is that he can't escape his birthright. He can run to the sun and hide among strangers, but he can't hide his powers from himself, and when a friend asks for help, he has to use them. With blood on his hands once more, it's farewell la dolce vita: he gets on his bike and goes home.

Home is no sweeter than it was before, but it has changed. His gangster relatives have lost control somehow, of themselves and their city; more than one evil is at work here now, and even Ben's unique talents may not be enough to save the one he loves.

If he can work out who that is...

Rick's girlfriend from years ago was dead. Murdered. Buried. Or was she? Who was the girl he'd seen at the motorway services? Why was he so sure he knew her? And who had started calling him in the night ... whispering his dead girlfriend's name? In the world of the Mesmer, 'alive' and 'dead' are ambiguous ... the only certainty is pain. And when Rick enters that world he must confront everything he has ever held true, all those comfortable and naive beliefs, if he wants to gets out alive.

What were King Arthur's knights really like? The superb stories in this collection explore their lives, discover who they were and what drove them on their quests, describe what pain and anguish they fought to conquer. There are many stories, specially written for the collection, together with rare classic reprints, a foreword by Vera Chapman, an afterword with Marion Zimmer Bradley and Parke Godwin, and an introduction by Mike Ashley on the history and lore of the distant world of King Arthur and his Round Table. Although the Knights here may number less than the 1600 that King Arthur is traditionally said to have asked that the Round Table seat, this collection contains nearly 200,000 words from masters of historical fantasy, and follow Chronicles of Pendragon, Camelot, Merlin and the Holy Grail in the same series.
In 1961, ghost story writer H.R. Wakefield stated bluntly, I believe ghost story writing to be a dying art . . .' This pessimistic statement has been echoed down through the decades since the Second World War, an event which, for many, seems to signify the end of the Golden Age of ghost stories. Are those people correct who claim that the modern world, with its all-too-real technological horrors, is no place for the ghost story, with its seemingly gentler terrors? Or is there still room today for tales that frighten without recourse to gruesome special effects', designed simply to appeal to a more and more jaded audience? Midnight Never Comes', the first anthology of all-new stories from Ash-Tree Press, clearly shows that the art of the ghost story is very much alive and well, and ready to enter the next century. Gathered together here are seventeen stories by contemporary writers in the genre, designed to prove that the traditional supernatural tale is far from a dying art. In a variety of styles and settings, the authors explore that dark world which, in these stories, exists beside and often intrudes upon our own, with results that range from the terrifying to the humorous. This is a collection of supernatural tales which will delight long-time enthusiasts of the genre, and at the same time show that there is something new under the sun, and that reports of the ghost story's demise are very much premature. An Ash-Tree Press Limited Edition.
Нил Гейман 4.5
«Песочный человек» – это умный и глубокий эпос, элегантно выписанный Нилом Гейманом и проиллюстрированный сменяющимся составом самых популярных художников в сфере комиксов. Это богатая смесь современного мифа и темной фэнтези, в которой литература о современности, историческая драма и легенды сплетены в единое целое. Сага о Сэндмене включает в себя ряд историй, уникальных для графической литературы, и вы её никогда не забудете.
This collection of stories from some of the biggest names in horror is not for the faint-hearted. Ray Bradbury tells what dogs want for Christmas; Poppy Z. Brite contributes a story that starts as a serial killer fable and turns into a tale of zombie magic; and Ramsey Campbell freezes blood with his ghostly cats. Twenty-five authors pen their scariest tales for brave readers only. All royalties from book sales are to be donated to animal welfare charities.
