1. When I was a kid I was dying for one of these!

     

  2. Cherie Priest’s ‘Maplecroft’ is Lizzie Borden versus Eldritch horrors from the sea? OH HELL YES! COUNT ME IN!

    From io9

    Once I started reading Maplecroft, I was basically glued to my chair until I was finished. So be prepared to lose an afternoon to this book – and to gnash your teeth waiting for the sequel to arrive (yes – it’s the first in the “Borden Dispatches” series). Whether you’re a weird fiction fan, or love true crime history, this book is a major treat…


    "Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one…"
    The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny. But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean’s depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness.
    This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe…
