Bleizgeist
by Hazel Butler

Ingary is a harsh land. Cursed by a perpetual winter, the isolated little town has all but forget why they worship the wolf. Marked by magic she cannot control, Marishka is an outcast. Alone and starving she is plagued by geiste, the unconscious minds of the people of Ingary, roaming the wilderness as they sleep. Attracted to the gramarye in Marishka’s blood, the geiste give her no rest. Losing herself to madness, she is saved when she chances to fall in love. But when her affair is discovered, all hope is taken from her. Beaten and lovelorn, she resigns herself to death. And then the wolf walks through her door, and Marishka recalls the meaning of Bleizgeist-the spirit of the wolf.

Philip K. Dick: The Last Interview
edited by David Streitfeld

This collection of conversations with Philip K. Dick ranges from his very first interview, when he was just a 26-year-old kid from Berkeley, to the last, conducted the day before he suffered the stroke that killed him. It reveals a man plagued by bouts of manic paranoia and failed suicide attempts; a career fueled by alcohol, amphetamines, and mystical inspirations—and, above all, a magnificent and generous imagination at work.

Light Fantastique
by Cecilia Dominic
Book two of the Aether Psychics Series

At the Théâtre Bohème, danger decides who takes the final curtain call.

Hailed as the most talented actress of her generation, Marie St. Jean has something more to her ability than mere talent. She loses a bit of her soul to each role. When the ghostly spirit of the theatre promises her an easy fix, she’s tempted by the chance to finally live a normal life. Unfortunately, the man she’s drawn to is the last one to settle for normal. But with the Prussians surrounding Paris, there’s no escaping that temptation, either.

Violinist Johann Bledsoe thought he’d left his disgrace in England, but a murder outside the Théâtre Bohème makes him wonder if he’s been exposed. Another reason not to stick around once the siege ends, even if Marie fascinates him.

More murders, steam-powered ravens, and past and present secrets bring them closer to discovering just what lurks within the theatre, and who threatens from without. The only way to save themselves is to reveal their darkest shames-and use the Eros Element in a way that has already driven one man to the brink of madness.

Robbed Blind
by Michael Kingswood
Book four of the Glimmer Vale Chronicles

A stunning robbery threatens to bring Lydelton’s economy to its knees, and it is up to Julian and Raedrick to find the culprits. With the year’s first trading caravan in town and the missing funds needed for vital transactions, time is of the essence. Fortunately, the Constables have assistance in the form of a team of Royal Marshalls, in town for a prisoner transfer. But they have an agenda of their own, and Raedrick and Julian must tread carefully to avoid revealing the secret of their own past. With few leads and little time, the Constables will need to use all of their skill and wit to solve the case and save their adopted home from ruin.

Silver Skulls: Portents
by S P Cawkwell

The Silver Skulls Space Marine Chapter deploy on the world of Valoria Quintus to combat an insurrection backed by the dread forces of the Traitor Legions

The Silver Skulls Space Marine Chapter deploy on the world of Valoria Quintus to combat an insurrection backed by the dread forces of the Traitor Legions. Sent there by the visions of their Prognosticars, the mysterious psykers whose premonitions decree the path forged by the Chapter and the wars that they wage, they expect victory to be swift and easy. But they have not reckoned with their own allies, the servants of the Inquisition who are interested in the Prognosticars, their importance within the Chapter and the possibility that the Silver Skulls may be being manipulated by the very powers they fight against.

Warlords and Wastrels
by Julia Knight
Book three, the finale, of the Duelist’s Trilogy

Vocho and Kacha may be known for the first swordplay in the city of Reyes, but they’ve found themselves backed into a corner too often for their liking.

Finally reinstated into the Duelist’s Guild for services rendered to the prelate, who has found himself back in charge, Vocho and Kacha are tasked with bringing a prisoner to justice. But this prisoner is none other than Kacha’s old flame Egimont. The prelate wants him alive, and on their side. However the more they discover of Egimont and his dark dealings with the magician, the more Kacha’s loyalties are divided. Soon she must choose a side — the prelate or the king, her brother or her ex-lover.

The fate of Reyes is balanced on a knife-edge.
