This novel by Russ Williams presents an apocalyptic view of a small town turned upside-down by a natural disaster. Action and human drama come together to force members of this shaken community to live or die while facing horrific challenges, natural and supernatural. There’s a doctor, a lawyer, a priest, a saloon keeper, a sheriff, a mayor, lovers, young and old, as well as the rich and the poor. All must band together to survive. Here is a preview: The president's voice crackled over the battery-powered radio: "My fellow Americans, I regret bearing such terrible news, but most of our nation is buried beneath snow left by this monumental blizzard. I have declared a state of emergency and martial law, and moved the Congress and executive branch to a provisional government center in Jacksonville, Florida. Much of the rest of our country is covered with fifty or more feet of snow. "I have ordered the U.S. armed services to begin digging out our large cities, but I ask those of you in outlying areas to take heart and have courage. We will try to rescue you as soon as we can and return local and national services to normal, whenever possible. Until then, I ask you, please remain calm and conserve your resources. Help is on the way. I repeat, help is on the way." "But what about us?" the girl screamed. "We're trapped here in the middle of nowhere. How long will it take them to reach us this far up in the mountains? Weeks? Months? Are we all going to die?" A small band of people gathered around the radio and tried to give her comfort, but they had no answers. All they could do was wait—and hope. So begins their time of terror in The Night Hunter—a mysterious tale of adventure and romance in an isolated village haunted by the unknown. To survive, these people have to struggle against the winter forces of nature gone wild. Yet, the ones who live must fight the ultimate battle, against their own weaknesses and desires, as they come face to face with ... The Night Hunter.
Wood from a tree on the mortal plane, the leaf from the Fae world, and the seed from gods-only-knew-where; it had become a thing of all of them. *** Ten months ago, the Gypsies battled the Fae for Ryna's soul. As the cycle of the rennies' year returns to Pendragon, they find their beloved playground more steeped in Magick than ever. Ten months ago, they won. Now clocks refuse to function, phantom music rides the wind, and as strange creatures stalk the grounds, Ryna feels the call of Pendragon's shadow-self more keenly with every pasing day. But the Fae are old, and patient, and they do not give up easily. As Phoenix is about to find out, just because you've sworn you're done with the them doesn't mean they're done with you....
In 1816, five years after being captured and sold into slavery, Kau, a pygmy tribesman, flees south into the Spanish Florida wilderness, determined to find a place where he can once again live in harmony with nature. Both haunted and driven by his memories of Africa, he embarks on an epic quest through the treacherous pinewoods, swamps, and river bottoms of the Southern frontier. He encounters renegades and thieves, traitors and mercenaries, and the dark prophetic magic of the forest before he finally finds himself within the walls of a remote fort on the Apalachicola River. There, he becomes the reluctant companion of several hundred runaway slaves once recruited by the British to fight in the War of 1812, then abandoned to fend for themselves against the American forces intent on destroying their remarkable stronghold. Inspired by actual events, and at times both violent and beautiful, The Eden Hunter provides a fascinating glimpse at a forgotten, bloody chapter in our nation's history through the eyes of one truly remarkable hero.

'The Night of the Hunter' (1955) was the only film that Charles Laughton directed. Adapted from a best-selling novel by Davis Grubb, it is part expressionist horror movie, part luminous fairy tale, and it contains some of the most haunting images in cinema. Willa (Shelley Winters), her throat cut and her hair streaming out like seaweed, sitting upright in a submerged Model T Ford. Her children, framed by looming animals, in a downriver flight from Preacher (Robert Mitchum). Preacher a silhouetted threat on the horizon. 'The Night of the Hunter' is revered today, but it failed on its first release, and Laughton never recovered from the disappointment.

New York Times bestselling author Stephen Hunter sends former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger deep into the heart of NASCAR country in this action-packed thriller. Talk about a ride! Woe unto he who crosses Bob Lee Swagger, especially when his daughter’s life is at stake. Forced off the road and into a crash that leaves her in a coma, clinging to life, reporter Nikki Swagger had begun to peel back the onion of a Southern-fried-conspiracy bubbling with all the angst, resentment, and dysfunction that Dixie gangsters can muster. An ancient, violent crime clan, a possibly corrupt law enforcement structure, gunmen of all stripes and shapes, and deranged evangelicals rear their ugly heads and will live to rue the day they targeted the wrong man’s daughter. It’s what you call your big-time bad career move. All of it is set against the backdrop of excitement and insanity that only a weeklong NASCAR event can bring to the backwoods of a town as seemingly sleepy as Bristol, Tennessee. A master at the top of his game, Hunter provides a host of thrilling new reasons to read as fast as we can. When Swagger picks up peeling where his daughter left off, and his swift sword of justice is let loose, we find a true American hero in his most stunning action to date. And—in the form of Brother Richard, a self-decreed “Sinnerman” out of the old fire-and-brimstone tradition—Hunter offers up his most diabolical, engaging villain yet. A triumph of story, character, and style, Night of Thunder is Stephen Hunter at his very best.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear continue the story of North America's Forgotten Past in People of the Nightland, a sweeping saga of a visionary boy who led his people out of the path of one of the worst catastrophes in the history of the world, and the brave little girl who loved him enough to believe in his dream. It has been a thousand years since Wolf Dreamer lead his people up through the dark hole in the ice to a rich, untouched continent bursting with game. But the world has changed. Most of the magnificent animals are gone, and the last of the great glaciers is melting, forming a huge freshwater lake in the middle of the world. Over the centuries the People of the Wolf have split into two clans. The People of the Nightland live in the honeycomb of ice caves that skirt the glacier. The People of the Sunpath live in hide lodges to the south, hunting the few remaining mammoths, bison, giant sloth, and short-faced bear. When a young orphaned boy named Silvertip receives a vision from Wolf Dreamer that their world is about to end, no one believes him--no one except a jaded war chief and a little girl. Led by Silvertip's dream, the three of them must convince both people to leave the land of their ancestors and flee eastward as fast as they can before the Ice Giants destroy the world.
