A remote area of the Scottish Highlands has been cordoned off and is being guarded by an army of I.R.A. mercenaries and ex-Nazi thugs. Local rumour has it that eccentric laird James Fraser Clyde is looking for buried treasure, but the British government fears he might be building an atomic bomb in an attempt to win Scottish independence. Yet the truth may be something far worse: a mysterious contagion is turning the locals into deformed, grunting creatures, with a single-minded urge to kill and spread their infection. Sir Marcus Levin, the Nobel Prize-winning bacteriologist, must find a way to halt the epidemic before it gets out of hand and destroys the world. But what is causing it? Who started it, and why? And can it be stopped?
First published in 1976, John Blackburn’s horror thriller The Face of the Lion capitalized on the popularity of apocalyptic zombie tales in the wake of George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968). This edition includes a new introduction by Greg Gbur, which situates Blackburn’s novel within the tradition of zombie literature.

Meet Daniella Delaney. She’s all ready to open her shop, Heavenly Cupcakes, in one of Chicago’s sleepier districts. But she’s having a hard time convincing the local business association—namely Nick St. George—that she’s a good addition to the neighborhood. Daniella hopes that her famous red velvet cupcakes will be enough to melt any man’s heart. But Nick is no ordinary man. He’s got fangs.
As leader of the Vamptown clan, Nick has no intention of letting Daniella breathe new life into his old haunts. But something about her leaves Nick hungry…for more. He can’t control her mind like other humans, a trait that makes Daniella irresistible. Could it be that, for the first time in centuries, Nick has met his match? Love is always a force to be reckoned with. But can this vampire have his cake and eat it too?

4.5 star Rating
Sherridan Heights is a sleepy little college town in northern California. When a series of brutal killings begins the local police are powerless to stop it. With the town shaken to its core a small group of friends take a weekend escape that quickly turns into a pulse-pounding nightmare, one of them leaving with something dark and vicious growing inside them. No one in the small town suspects who or what it is terrorizing their peaceful community, picking them off one by one. As time goes on more and more blood is mercilessly spilled. The local authorities believe they’re dealing with a rogue and possibly rabid grizzly bear, never suspecting that it was something much more dangerous and far more deadly. When the pieces start coming together it sends the local sheriff on a trail of nonstop mayhem and vicious murder, leading him to an unforeseen showdown with an unimaginable evil.
