DEATH WARMED OVER; In the tradition of bestselling fantasy humor writers Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams, “New York Times”-bestselling author Anderson is one of the biggest names in the science fiction genre. Now, he launches a fabulously funny new
urban fantasy series starring a zombie detective.
STAKEOUT AT THE VAMPIRE CIRCUS; Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble and his ghost girlfriend are called to the Vampire Circus when
a fortune teller’s cards go missing. Not exactly the glamorous life, but the stakes escalate when a vampire trapeze act goes dead wrong, and Shamble discovers even more skeletons in the closet
than the ones that live there. As he shuffles for clues through an unnatural cast of carnies, he faces a slate of suspects that could freak out even the most daring detective—a werewolf lion tamer, a fat lady
with an enormous secret, an undead ringmaster…and what could be scarier than a circus clown? The only thing certain is that the show must go on—dead or alive.
UNNATURAL ACTS; In the Unnatural Quarter, golems slave away in sweatshops, necromancers sell black-market trinkets to
tourists, and the dead rise up–to work the night shift. But zombie detective Dan Shamble is no ordinary working stiff. When a local senator and his goons picket a ghostly production of Shakespeare in the Dark–condemning the troupe’s “unnatural” lifestyles–Dan smells something rotten. And if something smells rotten to a zombie, you’re in serious trouble.
HAIR RAISING; The fur really flies when a serial scalper stalks the supernatural citizens of the Unnatural Quarter, targeting
werewolves—and what’s sadder than a chrome-domed lycanthrope? Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble is on the case, trying to stop an all-out gang war between full-time and full-moon werewolves. As he combs through the tangled clues to hunt down the bald facts, things get hairy fast.
Fantasy Time Inc; In the future we as a people will be going through many strange and conflicting changes. We will be traveling and living in space and under water. We will have an even better network of communications and transportation but we will still need to have a vacation and to relax from this antiseptic new environment. People will need an escape and most people dream of the future and the past, because no one romanticizes about their own time.

Three Keys to Murder www.williamsknerly.com
“…I think “Three Keys to Murder” might just top “The Da Vinci Code.” Thus, if you’re a lover of “The Da Vinci Code,” then Williams’ and Knerly’s novel is a must read! Five stars.”
– Shana Benedict of A Book Vacation Reviews
Named as one of the “Best Fiction Books of 2012” by Rosa St. Claire of the Miami Examiner.“Dan Brown better look over his
shoulder – Williams and Knerly are here for his crown. Indisputable Proof is an edge-of-the-seat thriller with great storytelling backed by brilliant research.”
– Greig Beck, bestselling author of “This Green Hell” and “Dark Rising”
Panoptemitry; with a goal as high and lofty as the unspecified pursuit of knowledge, there may not be a clear point at which to stop. Acting as one has been taught to can seem to hold just as much purpose as the actual reason for taking those actions. When the growth of technology begins to hold the same powers as religious doctrine has declared divine, does the simple recording of events become blasphemous? Who’s to say we even understand that ‘so-called’ divinity?

Exotic and Alternative
Thrones of Desire is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine. Think mystical lands and creatures, kings and queens, knights and renegades, heroes and villains, warlords, maidens and princesses. Think battles and danger, honor and dishonor, good and evil. Most of all, think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts.
