<h3><b>The Long, Lost Exit Home by Chris Roberts is another great addition to the horror sci-fi traditions of <i>Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz.</i> The reader encounters pulse pounding unspeakable horror in this terrifying dark fantasy thriller with a twist ending of delicious surprise!</b></h3> "Oh, good lord! I’ve never read something so… GRIMEY and GROSSSSS!! But I LOVED it. Aliens plus horror equals skin crawling, and that’s exactly what The Long, Lost Exit delivers. Roberts’ descriptions are—well… How should I put it? Out of this world? And he wastes no time getting to the point.<br /> The story begins with the headlines describing a massive “earthquake”—so they say— *wink wink*. Also reported is some crazed serial killer that is mutilating females. (How all of this could fit into the same story plot beats me, but Roberts pulled it off.) That very same day, some poor sap encounters the creepiest ordeal of his life. My skin is still crawling just thinking about it!<br /> From here, the story changes point of views to a female hooking up with a guy she hardly knows. Yes, in the midst of the news broadcasting a serial killer, my suspicion bar binged, and with the turn of every page, my jaw hit the floor.<br /> As badly as I want to give insight about every chapter, I won’t for then it will become spoilers. But I will say this—The Long, Lost Exit has something for every adult. From science fiction, to horror, to suspense and even romance. Lovers of all genres can enjoy this one, and I highly recommend it. Prepare to get your adrenaline going!"—Ava Reed<hr /> "OMG!! The Long-Lost Exit Home by Chris Roberts will keep your heart racing and your armpits sweating after you have long finished the last chapter! Roberts’ imagination is insanely wrapped around the macabre. All bets are off with this horror, thriller, romantic love? story. This is more than a story….it exceeds the average alien invasion, chainsaw murdering, Michael Meyers horror…with many twists along the way.<br /> The story begins with an undersea earthquake beneath the city of Sealand, California. Carl, who worked on the sewer systems, is assessing the damage under the city; only to become the victim of an evil, grossly shaped alien sea-monster. Roberts writes the horrid, graphic violence with such detail and imagination; I felt I was a part of the scene. The scenes of violence and terror are not for the squeamish! I have spent many nights with my lights on all night after reading Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Dean Koontz. I have added Chris Roberts to my list of horror writers who cause me to believe my own life is in danger of being ripped and shredded into bloody stretches of pandemonium.<br /> The main character, Laura, adds a bit of innocent friendliness to the alien horror and violent acts of mayhem that will leave you gasping for air. Laura is struck by one tragedy after another. She is only 19 years old and faces a myriad of ugliness and evil throughout the story. If you enjoy thrillers that keep you running for the mirror to remind yourself of the reality outside of this book; Chris Roberts’ book will spellbind you!"—Johni Brand Wigal (Just a taste of written reviews by the readers.)<br />You will even find some great horror poetry written by one of the characters in this novel!

<p>An unvarnished, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes account of one of the most dominant pop cultural forces in contemporary America</p><p>Operating out of a tiny office on Madison Avenue in the early 1960s, a struggling company called Marvel Comics presented a cast of brightly costumed characters distinguished by smart banter and compellingly human flaws. Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, the Avengers, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, Daredevil—these superheroes quickly won children's hearts and sparked the imaginations of pop artists, public intellectuals, and campus radicals. Over the course of a half century, Marvel's epic universe would become the most elaborate fictional narrative in history and serve as a modern American mythology for millions of readers.</p><p>Throughout this decades-long journey to becoming a multibillion-dollar enterprise, Marvel's identity has continually shifted, careening between scrappy underdog and corporate behemoth. As the company has weathered Wall Street machinations, Hollywood failures, and the collapse of the comic book market, its characters have been passed along among generations of editors, artists, and writers—also known as the celebrated Marvel "Bullpen." Entrusted to carry on tradition, Marvel's contributors—impoverished child prodigies, hallucinating peaceniks, and mercenary careerists among them—struggled with commercial mandates, a fickle audience, and, over matters of credit and control, one another.</p><p>For the first time, <em>Marvel Comics</em> reveals the outsized personalities behind the scenes, including Martin Goodman, the self-made publisher who forayed into comics after a get-rich-quick tip in 1939; Stan Lee, the energetic editor who would shepherd the company through thick and thin for decades; and Jack Kirby, the World War II veteran who'd co-created Captain America in 1940 and, twenty years later, developed with Lee the bulk of the company's marquee characters in a three-year frenzy of creativity that would be the grounds for future legal battles and endless debates.</p><p>Drawing on more than one hundred original interviews with Marvel insiders then and now, <em>Marvel Comics</em> is a story of fertile imaginations, lifelong friendships, action-packed fistfights, reformed criminals, unlikely alliances, and third-act betrayals— a narrative of one of the most extraordinary, beloved, and beleaguered pop cultural entities in America's history.</p>

<p><b>From bestselling author Max Brooks, the riveting story of the highly decorated, barrier-breaking, historic black regiment—the Harlem Hellfighters</b><br /><br />In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment marched home triumphantly from World War I. They had spent more time in combat than any other American unit, never losing a foot of ground to the enemy, or a man to capture, and winning countless decorations. Though they returned as heroes, this African American unit faced tremendous discrimination, even from their own government. The Harlem Hellfighters, as the Germans called them, fought courageously on—and off—the battlefield to make Europe, and America, safe for democracy.  <br /><br />In <i>THE HARLEM HELLFIGHTERS</i>, bestselling author Max Brooks and acclaimed illustrator Caanan White bring this history to life. From the enlistment lines in Harlem to the training camp at Spartanburg, South Carolina, to the trenches in France, they tell the heroic story of the 369th in an action-packed and powerful tale of honor and heart.<br /><br /></p><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

In this exciting prequel to the critically acclaimed Dane Curse, a pair of black capes are found dead on the floor of Wentorf Hall, mere inches away from the world’s largest diamond. Of course the cops think the pair killed each other over the heist. After all, everyone knows that the Vandenberg Coconut is a one size fits all motivation for murder. Everyone, that is, except for Dane Curse. <br /> <br />But when the former villain turned PI takes the case he’ll discover that the truth has more sides than a diamond has facets. And in order to get to it Dane will follow a trail that leads through an old enemy with a bagful of grudges, a killer who specializes in assassinating super villains, and a wealthy socialite with a murky motive. A thorny maze indeed, and sitting at its heart, mysteriously returned from years in hiding, is Dane’s very own daughter.<br /> <br />Will Dane Curse discover the thieves’ secret in time to solve the case, save his agency, and protect his only child from a vicious death? Or will he lose it all, just another victim of The Coconut Swindle?<br /> <br />In this follow up to the critically acclaimed Dane Curse, Matt Abraham, winner of Pulp Detective’s 2015 Newcomer of the Year Award, takes us on our second trip through Gold Coast City. It’s Dane’s very first case, the one that made the agency, but almost broke the man. If you like white knuckled action, devious dames, and heroic villains then get your copy today, and saddle up with the most exciting detective since Harry Dresden!
