Returning to the Vale after six years at university, Linhare is thrust into the long-standing grudges and precarious alliances that maintain her realm.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018. Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt “A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.” —Stephen King For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.

Poetry. Southeast Asia Studies. Translated from the Vietnamese by Nguyen Do and Paul Hoover. While Li Po and other classic Chinese poets mostly found expression through through landscape, Vietnamese poet Nguyen Trai (1380-1422) wrote about his own life. The literary symbols of T'ang Dynasty poetry are relatively general, traditional, and polite, but Nguyen Trai developed a colloquial and personal style. As a result, his poems have the intimacy and immediacy of the everyday. Over six hundred years old, they appear, in this translation by contemporary Vietnamese poet Nguyen Do and American poet Paul Hoover, to have been written only yesterday, by someone whose feelings we are able to share, despite their distance from us in time and culture. This is the first collection of Nguyen Trai's poetry to be published in English.

Beyond the Hago Gate is a tantalising, historical fantasy story which will keep you gripped from the outset. The Kingdom of Harlem is ruled by the feckless King Bantu; a young bitter man who is blighted by dark secrets and terrible nightmares. Riddled with guilt and fear, he is plagued by an event which took place when he was just 16 years old and which still casts a murky shadow over the entire Kingdom. The Hago Gate was the setting for this life-changing day and to the King, this is a cursed place filled with poison and deadly secrets, which is why he has banished everyone from ever entering. His royal guards patrol the boundary constantly in an attempt to prevent any adventurers from discovering what lies behind it. Zogi, however, is a 10 year old boy with a fierce taste for adventure. He dreams about the vast treasures which lie behind the Hago Gate and, armed with his intuition, a magic apple, and an unexplainable mystical force, he makes it past the guards and over the forbidden gate. Discovering that this is a world of shadows, devastation and destruction, and that dangerous characters lurk there, too, Zogi fears for his life. Can Zogi really challenge and defeat the King without consequence? Will he ever escape the Hago Gate and return to the safety of his family and friends? Join him and King Bantu on an epic adventure which leads to the unearthing of a force more powerful than fear or determination; a force which opens the door to creativity and a realm of limitless possibilities. Take a glimpse into the exciting prologue and discover the dark secret that has forced the King to banish his citizens from the Hago Gate.

Following the author's widely successful "Mardukite Year-3" series of works culminating an in-depth examination of Mesopotamian Magic, Sumerian Sorcery and the Dark Arts of Babylon, Joshua Free's "Beyond the Ishtar Gate" (Liber-C) completes the trilogy launched from "Magan Magic" (Liber-E) and "Maqlu Magic" (Liber-M); simultaneously released by the Mardukite Chamberlains as the "Necronomicon Spellbook" trilogy series. BEYOND THE ISHTAR GATE (also released as "Necronomicon Spellbook III") is concerned with the 'other side' of the tradition, parts that have been concealed and yet also what made the tradition famous - mainly, the connection to the "Other," that which we have been programmed to perceive as 'separate' from this reality. By whatever names it has been given, the part of this 'advanced', 'esoteric' or 'inner circle' work connected directly to the "Other," in whatever tradition it is realized from, is the highest part of the 'Great Work' - that which all the rest seemingly culminates into or points toward. It has been considered 'divine communication' by some and 'trafficking with the devil' to others - but regardless of the view taken, the knowledge and experience of these crossings is never held without some regard, for better or worse. "Liber-C" also contains the unpublished conclusion to Series-U and Series-V tablet cycles not found in the "Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible" anthology.

From the novelist the New York Times compares to Paul Bowles, Evelyn Waugh and Ian McEwan, an evocative new work of literary suspense Adrift in Cambodia and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher, 28-year-old Englishman Robert Grieve decides to go missing. As he crosses the border from Thailand, he tests the threshold of a new future. And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events-- involving a bag of “jinxed” money, a suave American, a trunk full of heroin, a hustler taxi driver, and a rich doctor’s daughter-- that changes Robert’s life forever. Hunters in the Dark is a sophisticated game of cat and mouse redolent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith, where identities are blurred, greed trumps kindness, and karma is ruthless. Filled with Hitchcockian twists and turns, suffused with the steamy heat and pervasive superstition of the Cambodian jungle, and unafraid to confront difficult questions about the machinations of fate, this is a masterful novel that confirms Lawrence Osborne’s reputation as one of our finest contemporary writers.

Considered by many to be among Brian Lumley's greatest works, the exciting Khai of Khem is little-known in the US. This time-traveling adventure story spans centuries and cultures in Lumley's trademark mix of horror and science fiction, much like his internationally-bestselling Necroscope series. Like the Necroscope novels, Khai of Khem is packed with fast-paced action, hair's-breadth escapes, all-consuming love, endless horror, and, in the person of Khai himself, quick wits and bravery in the teeth of danger. Khai begins life in ancient Egypt as the son of Pharaoh Khasathut's chief architect. Believing Pharaoh to be a god, Khai is stunned to learn that the supposedly great and wise leader is a shriveled, ancient fossil of a man whose chief desires are to deflower young virgins and achieve eternal life through the powers of his black magicians. When Khai dares to raise a hand to Pharaoh, he is condemned to be a slave. Escaping, Khai flees to neighboring Kush where he earns the rank of general in the army of Queen Ashtarta . . . and a place in Ashtarta's bed. In the heat of battle against Pharaoh's armies, Khai is betrayed by his best friend and falls victim to the evil spells of Khasathut's magicians, who send his soul winging centuries into the future. In modern America, Khai searches for the reincarnated souls of his love, Ashtarta, and of his betrayer. Khai is amazed by many of the wonders of the modern world-television, air conditioning, and especially guns, bombs, and other weapons. Returning to his own time, Khai uses the technologies he saw in the future to rewrite the past. But will he and Ashtarta be in time to prevent Khasathut from attaining immortality and using newly-gained alien powers to destroy all of Khem and Kush? Originally published in the US in mass market in the early 1980s and unavailable for nearly twenty years, Khai of Khem is one of Brian Lumley's most sought-after novels. Tor Books is pleased to bring it to a new generation of Lumley's readers. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
