THE CIPHER Book Summary :

Kathe Koja's classic, award-winning horror novel is finally available as an ebook. Nicholas, a would-be poet, and Nakota, his feral lover, discover a strange hole in the storage room floor down the hall - "Black. Pure black and the sense of pulsation, especially when you look at it too closely, the sense of something not living but alive." It begins with curiosity, a joke - the Funhole down the hall. But then the experiments begin. "Wouldn't it be wild to go down there?" says Nakota. Nicholas says "We're not." But they're not in control, not from the first moment, as those experiments lead to obsession, violence, and a very final transformation for everyone who gets too close to the Funhole. THE CIPHER was the winner of the 1991 Bram Stoker Award, and was recently named one of io9.com's Top 10 Debut Science Fiction Novels That Took the World By Storm. Long out-of-print and much sought-after, it is finally available as an ebook, with a new foreword by the author. "An ethereal rollercoaster ride from start to finish." - The Detroit Free Press "Combines intensely poetic language and lavish grotesqueries." - BoingBoing "Kathe Koja is a poet ... [T]he kind that prefers to read in seedy bars instead of universities, but a poet." - The New York Review of Science Fiction "Her 20-something characters are poverty-gagged 'artists' who exist in that demimonde of shitty jobs, squalid art galleries, and thrift stores; her settings are run-down studios, flat-beer bars, and dingy urban streets [a] long way from Castle Rock, Dunwich, or Stepford, that's for sure." - Too Much Horror Fiction "This powerful first novel is as thought-provoking as it is horrifying." - Publishers Weekly "Unforgettable ... [THE CIPHER] takes you into the lives of the dark dreamers that crawl on the underbelly of art and culture. Seldom has language been so visceral and so right." - Locus "[THE CIPHER] is a book that makes you sit up, pay attention, and jettison your moldy preconceptions about the genre ...

Flee Or Die Book Summary :

If the works of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Isaac Asimov appeal to you, this might be the book for you. Does the idea of a chip implant by the government to ensure you are happy because you can only make right decisions seem plausible if it is not already reality. Technology is advancing so fast that what the author intended to be a work of fiction was being overtaken by reality, chapter-by-chapter, every few weeks. What sets this book apart from similar science-fiction is its humor and humanity. Advance readers fell in love with a quirky robot. Can an android become a born-again Christian? Many of the characters in this book say it is impossible. Most people who have read Flee or Die now accept the premise that it is possible. Once advanced computers rule the world, can they be persuaded to relinquish complete control over humans? What argument would cause the computers to return free agency to the humans? Is one woman strong enough to defy her mother and change the course of history even while the government is trying to kill her? Where will she find refuge? Can one renegade robot overcome the government's prohibition against religion and proselyting? How can it survive? If the forced consumption of unremitting pornography is destroying a large segment of humanity, what will it take to reverse this menace to the existence of mankind? Will the purveyors of this plague forego their billions without a fight? This is a fictional book, written for entertainment. The serious questions posed throughout this novel might cause you to wonder how long it will take before reality overtakes the speculation of our world in the near future. These questions bothered one advance reader so much that she wrote the author a scathing rebuke for seriously damaging her world view. The nice thing about you not having your mandatory chip implant today (well, at least when this book was first published) is you can lay it down at any time if you don't like it. Caution, you still might

The Deep Deep Snow Book Summary :

In an intense, emotional mystery that spans a decade in the life of a small town, bestselling author Brian Freeman brings us an unforgettable heroine who discovers that the dead may sometimes be easier to rescue than the living. Deputy Shelby Lake was abandoned as a baby, saved by a stranger who found her in the freezing cold. Now, years later, a young boy is missing—and Shelby is the one who must rescue a child. The only evidence of what happened to ten-year-old Jeremiah Sloan is a bicycle left behind on a lonely road. After a desperate search fails to locate him, the close bonds of Shelby’s hometown begin to fray under the weight of accusations and suspicion. Everyone around her is keeping secrets. Her adoptive father, her best friend, her best friend’s young daughter—they all have something to hide. Even Shelby is concealing a mistake that could jeopardize her career and her future. Unearthing the lies of the people in Jeremiah’s life doesn’t get the police and the FBI any closer to finding him. As time passes and the case grows cold, Shelby worries that the mystery will stay buried forever under the deep, deep snow. But even the deepest snow melts in the spring. When a tantalizing clue finally comes to light, Shelby must confront the darkest lie of all. Exposing the truth about Jeremiah will leave no one’s life untouched—including her own.
