Format: Books
Summary "From the award-winning author of the acclaimed novel Poe comes an edgy and bone-chilling new novel. When Fiona Quinn is approached in a bar by a man who calls himself Scratch and claims he's the devil, she figures it's just some kind of post-modern ironic pickup line. But since he offers to pick up the tab, what the hell. A few drinks in, Scratch offers something much stranger--a wish in exchange for her immortal soul. Fiona has been wondering if her boyfriend is having an affair. What if she could become invisible, see what he's really up to? It can be done, but for a price--in addition to her soul, Fiona must perform a special favor for Scratch whenever the time comes. Fiona finds the whole thing so hilarious that she agrees. Bad idea. Not only does Fiona soon discover that she really was talking to the devil incarnate, but she's now been initiated into a bizarre support group of similar "dead souls"--those who have exchanged their immortal spirits on a whim, and must spend their waking hours in absolute terror of that favor eventually being called in...and what exactly is required from each of them in order to give the devil his due. With Fenn's "wicked raw and proudly untamed" talent (Bloody-Disgusting.com), Dead Souls is a terrifying venture to the dark side that will haunt you long after you've turned the last page"-- Provided by publisher. "From the award-winning author of the acclaimed novel Poe comes an edgy, witty, and bone-chilling novel about a woman who unwittingly agrees to complete one favor for the devil himself at the risk of her immortal soul. When Fiona Quinn is approached in a bar by a man who calls himself Scratch and claims he's the devil, she figures it's just some kind of post-modern ironic pickup line. Fiona doesn't believe in anything of the paranormal sort. A few drinks in, Scratch offers one wish in exchange for her immortal soul. Fiona's been wondering if her boyfriend is having an affair, so why not, invisibility would be a good way to find out--hypothetically, of course. It can be done, but there's only one other small detail--at some point in time, he'll call in a favor. Whatever it is, Fiona has to do it--and do it well--otherwise she's his for all eternity. Fiona finds the whole thing so hilarious that she agrees and they shake on it. Bad idea. Not only does Fiona soon discover that she really was talking to the devil incarnate, but she's now become a "dead soul"--those who have exchanged their souls on a whim, and must spend their waking hours in mortal terror of that favor eventually being called in...

Title The dream-quest of Vellitt Boe
Author Johnson, Kij, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary Kij Johnson's haunting novella The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is both a commentary on a classic H.P. Lovecraft tale and a profound reflection on a woman's life. Vellitt's quest to find a former student who may be the only person who can save her community takes her through a world governed by a seemingly arbitrary dream logic in which she occasionally glimpses an underlying but mysterious order, a world ruled by capricious gods and populated by the creatures of dreams and nightmares. Those familiar with Lovecraft's work will travel through a fantasy landscape infused with Lovecraftian images viewed from another perspective, but even readers unfamiliar with his work will be enthralled by Vellitt's quest. A remarkable accomplishment that repays rereading.
