“A fascinating portrait of life as a Chinese-American woman in the 1930s and ’40s.” —The New York Times Book Review

New York Times Bestseller

The author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and Shanghai Girls has garnered international acclaim for her great skill at rendering the intricate relationships of women and the complex meeting of history and fate. Now comes Lisa See’s highly anticipated new novel, China Dolls.

It’s 1938 in San Francisco: a world’s fair is preparing to open on Treasure Island, a war is brewing overseas, and the city is alive with possibilities. Grace, Helen, and Ruby, three young women from very different backgrounds, meet by chance at the exclusive and glamorous Forbidden City nightclub. Grace Lee, an American-born Chinese girl, has fled the Midwest with nothing but heartache, talent, and a pair of dancing shoes. Helen Fong lives with her extended family in Chinatown, where her traditional parents insist that she guard her reputation like a piece of jade. The stunning Ruby Tom challenges the boundaries of convention at every turn with her defiant attitude and no-holds-barred ambition.

The girls become fast friends, relying on one another through unexpected challenges and shifting fortunes. When their dark secrets are exposed and the invisible thread of fate binds them even tighter, they find the strength and resilience to reach for their dreams. But after the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, paranoia and suspicion threaten to destroy their lives, and a shocking act of betrayal changes everything.

“Freeman and Chizmar’s fifth horror anthology runs the gamut from throwback horror to lyrical and heartbreaking tales. . . . This collection will satisfy.” —Publishers Weekly

Award-Winning Authors

Mick Garris, J. Kenner, Kealan Patrick Burke, Del James, and Bentley Little pry open a sarcophagus of horror and dread in Dark Screams: Volume Five, from Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar of the esteemed Cemetery Dance Publications.

EVERYTHING YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED by Mick Garris
It was supposed to be the night of his life: a celebration of his one hit slasher flick. But the price of admission is higher than this has-been filmmaker ever could have imagined.

THE ONE AND ONLY by J. Kenner
When he was seven, Will Underwood’s nanny told him she had the Sight. Years later, a broken heart sends him to New Orleans . . . but it’s fate that leads him to Madame Darkling’s Voodoo Emporium.

THE LAND OF SUNSHINE by Kealan Patrick Burke
Although she was mute long before the affair that nearly wrecked their marriage, her silence has tortured her husband ever since. Now he will seek out what he has lost—or be driven mad by remorse.

“Her interpretive flair and accurate descriptive detail put her head and shoulders above the rest of the field” -Times Literary Supplement

1469.

Edward IV sits on the English throne, in no small part due to the support of the magnificent Warwick — the Kingmaker.

At his right hand stands young Richard of Gloucester, whose slight frame and young age belie his strength of will.

His unprepossessing features hide the fierceness with which he defends those he loves, from Edward to Warwick’s youngest daughter, Anne, with whom he grew up.

All is not well in Edward’s kingdom. His marriage to Elizabeth Woodville, a woman disliked by many, and the favour subsequently bestowed upon her extensive network of relations, has ruffled any number of feathers.

Discontented, treasonous rumblings have arisen amongst certain members of the peerage — including Warwick and George of Clarence, Edward’s boyishly handsome younger brother.

Their dissatisfaction draws them together, a union solidified by Clarence’s marriage to Warwick’s elder daughter Isabel, and sets in motion events that will test loyalties and fracture families.

Richard, who bears little love for Clarence, never wavers in his support for the king, but his deep and longstanding regard for Warwick and his love for little Anne mean that the bitter conflict that rages over England divides him between the passion he feels for his enemy’s child and his fierce loyalty to his brother.

For Anne, the clash between her father and the king takes her across the Channel as a pawn in Warwick’s political endgame.

Bearing witness to her sister Isabel’s frightening experience of giving birth to a stillborn son whilst still aboard ship, Anne is terrified by the prospect of marriage and bearing children of her own.

However, her father seeks to ally France and England and put Henry of Lancaster back on the throne, and so Anne is married off to Henry’s son.

When her husband dies, George of Clarence and Anne’s sister Isabel sequester Anne in the hope that she is with child — a son who may serve as the figurehead and pour new strength into the country’s treasonous troops.

Warwick’s and King Edward’s conflict culminates in two bloody battles that resolve, at last, their argument…a civil war with repercussions for family, friends, and country.

For Richard and Anne, survival has come at a price.

Will they be able to overcome the events that have torn their families asunder and find happiness at last? Only the turn of fortune’s wheel can say…

That Devil Forrest: Life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest – Amazon

“This biography, like its subject, has few peers.” New York Times Book Review

Nathan Bedford Forrest was one of twelve children, born to a poor blacksmith and his wife in Bedford County, Tennessee.

Yet, despite these humble origins he would go on to become one of the most innovative cavalry leaders America has ever seen.

His enemies respected him and his Southern compatriots admired him. Both General Johnston and General Sherman agreed that he was “the most remarkable man our Civil War produced on either side.” While Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee, in their postwar memoirs, stated that the tide of the war might have been changed had the Confederate high command better used Forrest’s talents.

John A. Wyeth’s brilliant biography of Forrest fully captures this fascinating general and his actions throughout the war.

From his brilliant campaigns at Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Brice’s Crossroads to his more controversial moments, for example at the Battle of Fort Pillow where many Union prisoners were slaughtered, Wyeth examines every part of Forrest’s career in precise detail.

“Mike Williams does it again! Another stonking read with a chuckle on every page.” -Rick T.

Grubdale in the year 1912 – a quaint Victorian town nestled high among the sheep and turnips of Northern England, boasting a regiment of Rifles, the Zoological Gardens and the most expensive and grandest of hotels this side of the viaduct, The Alpine Palace. But all is not as it seems. The Alpine Palace is overflowing with German spies and the latest addition to the Zoological Gardens is eating its way through the rest of the exhibits, breathes fire when it sneezes and is demanding to be called ‘Your Majesty’ when spoken to.

All of this is nothing to the goings on at Grubdale Towers, a school for orphans where a bad tin of sardines has created a vacancy on the staff for a certain witch and her pink ‘poodle’ to teach ‘explosions’ to horrid little boys. While the Sisterhood continue their search for the Stately Wyrms of England, Rowena Carp must guard the last Prince of Wyrm and keep his identity a secret from the other boys at the school.

When it comes to the Djinn, most dreamers pay little attention to their intrusive presence. Jack was no exception, believing these beings were fabrications of his sleeping mind. One specific Djinn seemed to follow Jack, watching like a voyeur, from the background. This mysterious figure never interacted with Jack, just quietly remained a fixture of the dreamscape.

As time shifted and he grew from early adolescence to his teens, Jack’s frequent nocturnal visitor seemed to vanish. Then, one night in his mid-20’s, the Djinn reemerged. Not only had he returned, but instead of remaining in the background, this man stepped from the shadows and finally introduced himself.

Skeptical at first, Jack dismissed the chance occurrence until he was handed tangible proof in Reality. A special handbook entitled “The Grimoire” was the gift, and it was designed to open the doorway into the Djinn life.

With Jack’s acceptance, his induction was swift. His wildest dreams were about to become true…as well as his nightmares. The rigid line between Reality and the Dreaming had been permanently blurred. The Djinn had Jack hooked, and all he could do is go for the ride of his life. Will this be too much for Jackie Boy to handle?
