Lars Kepler returns with a piercing, bestselling sequel to The Hypnotist After spellbinding audiences in The Hypnotist, Detective Inspector Joona Linna is back in The Nightmare, an internationally bestselling Swedish thriller published to critical acclaim in dozens of countries. As the Swedish newspaper Arbetarbladet put it, "The reader is ready to sell his own soul for the opportunity to read this book without interruption, in one sitting." On a summer night, police recover the body of a young woman from an abandoned pleasure boat drifting around the Stockholm archipelago. Her lungs are filled with brackish water, and the forensics team is sure that she drowned. Why, then, is the pleasure boat still afloat, and why are there no traces of water on her clothes or body? The next day, a man turns up dead in his state apartment in Stockholm, hanging from a lamp hook. All signs point to suicide, but the room has a high ceiling, and there's not a single piece of furniture around—nothing to climb on. Joona Linna begins to piece together the two mysteries, but the logistics are a mere prelude to a dizzying and dangerous course of events. At its core, the most frightening aspect of The Nightmare isn't its gruesome crimes—it's the dark psychology of its characters, who show us how blind we are to our own motives.

The Nightmare Affair is the first in a gripping new urban fantasy trilogy by Mindee Arnett. Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she's a criminal. No, she's a Nightmare. Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother's infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker's house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He's hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn't get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder. Then Eli's dream comes true. Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli's dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she's up to and marks her as the next target. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Nightmare War is a work of speculative fiction that plays with the notion of closed loops of time. Each of the fourteen chapters contains a complete narrative incident with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Each narrative incident is followed by an appended commentary (or two) spoken from outside the loop. The fourteen chapters of The Nightmare War collectively tell a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end. That story, however, begins on page 1 somewhere near the ending and ends on page 75 somewhere near the beginning. Careful readers may note that the story ends, chronologically, on page 15 with the phrase, Not another word! But that is not the last word.

The Nightmare of History

The Nightmare of History: The Fictions of Virginia Woolf and D. H. Lawrence is an attempt to show the influence of the First World War on the literary and cultural attitudes of these two seminal, yet very different, writers. It demonstrates that Woolf and Lawrence shared many perspectives about the dislocations and horrors created by war, as well as potential, although probably unachievable, cultural resurrection. Helen Wussow reveals that the authors' uses of language, their shaping of verbal forms applied simultaneously to issues of personal relationship and public or cultural history, show remarkable similarities. She argues that the works of these two authors are informed by the dynamics of conflict. Yet, at the same time, Wussow is always aware of significant differences between Lawrence's and Woolf's fictions.

From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes the Bram Stoker Award-winning collection The Nightmare Chronicles -- 13 spine-tingling tales of dark mystery, supernatural thrills and twisted horror which "can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby, " says bestselling author Dean Koontz. “Clegg brings his stories together with a chilling fictive conceit....The effect is dangerously seductive.” -- Locus “Clegg's (The Halloween Man, etc.) collection of 13 tales takes risks and is full of passions that sometimes burst forth violently…Clegg's use of innovative metaphors catapults each story beyond a landscape crowded with the horror genre's usual monsters and madmen into a territory he alone can claim.” – Publisher’s Weekly “…Like M. R. James, Douglas Clegg can ‘write about the vile and horrific without seeming to smear it over himself or you.’ Like Shirley Jackson he has an understated precision of language and the ability to portray his characters emotionally in a wickedly effective manner. And, like Stephen King, he loves to tell stories and tells them well. At the same time, Clegg is a thoroughly modern writer...Without doubt, one of the best collections of the year. -- DarkEcho “Every story is perfectly different and definitely unlike any other horror novel/film I’ve read or watched…all of them have their images that could come back to you in your dreams.” – Doubleshot Reviews. “Clegg writes some of the most harrowing, unforgettable tales you're ever likely to come upon.. Clegg's best stories…slip into your subconscious and stay with you well beyond the last turning of the page...” – The Chiaroscuro “I was truly impressed with this collection, and was not surprised to learn that it received the 1999 International Horror Guild Award for Best Collection, and the 1999 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection.” – Casual Debris Contains the short stories "Underworld" "O Rare and Most Exquisite" "The Rendering Man" "The Fruit of Her Womb" "The Hurting Season" "Chosen" "The Night Before Alec Got Married" "Only Connect" "The Little Mermaid," "Damned If You Do" "The Ripening Sweetness of Late Afternoon" Plus the acclaimed novelettes, "White Chapel" and "I Am Infinite, I Contain Multitudes."
