The stunning mountains of Virginia offer spectacular views and endless outdoor activities, yet they also hold secrets. A nineteenth-century cache of gold is buried in the hills. Nine-foot giants once walked the ridges, pre-Columbian explorers built homes on isolated mountaintops and a ghost town lies deep in the Jefferson National Forest. The mountains conceal canines that walk upright, black panthers and a resurgent mountain lion population. The hide-and-seek champion of the world, Bigfoot, lurks in the dark hollows, phantom dogs pace the back roads and aggressive monkeys swing through the trees. UFOs crisscross the skies, and ghosts haunt the caverns below. Join Denver Michaels, local author and explorer of the unexplained, as he explores these mysteries and many more.

The Missing Mountain

The Missing Mountain

Missing. Mountain. Cars could reach the mountain's saddle, a notch between two peaks, and there survey the grid of lighted streets, a bursting net of beads and sequins, a straining movement cruising for release.

""The Missing Mountain"describes a long, distinguished career as both a poet and teacher. It highlights all the things that we've come to depend on in Michael Collier's poetry: his wide range of reference, his ability to formulate surprising connections, and his depth of intelligence and emotion. Where most contemporary poets look for the metaphorical in the literal, Collier does the opposite: he takes a hard look at "how things actually are," giving readers a crystal clear view of his observations, from fraught relations between family members and between lovers, to pedophilic priests and the ethics of beekeeping, to explorations in the densest of forests, ruminations into the most forbidding of deserts, and down to the terrors of the bottom of the ocean. In the section of new poems, Collier turns to the other animals who share our planet. Here we find an array of recognizable characters: an irascible stray cat with an unlikely dependent, an opossum; an imperious-if clueless-dog; a sage, world-weary goat; and the touching domesticity of bluebirds. So much could we learn from our fellow creatures, if we tried; and, after all the centuries of human consumption, how little we've actually learned from each other:"If they would stay just where they are all morning," Collier writes of some industrious crows he chances upon in a clearing, "they'd be the monument to the history they're looking for." This new and selected poems represents the best of what Phoenix Poets has strived for over the years: nonconformity to prevailing trends in literary culture, a poetry attuned to a world external to the self and shared with others, in language that tries to engage the full range of our faculties and sensibilities, bringing the widest range of consciousness to bear upon the widest range of experience"

***A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*** A New York Times Book Review “Editors’ Choice” Entertainment Weekly — Thriller Round-Up The Wall Street Journal — 5 Killer Books for 2016 Hollywood Reporter — Hot Summer Books…16 Must Reads “This thriller’s all of your fave page-turners (think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl) rolled into one.” —TheSkimm “Both [Gillian] Flynn’s and Miranda’s main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale… All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016.” —Los Angeles Review of Books “Extremely interesting…a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian.” —The New York Times Book Review “Are you paying attention? You’ll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it’s a page-turner to boot.” —Elle Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse. It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

The Patch of the Odin Soldier marks the return to action of the intrepid and irrepressible Lincoln Blackthorne. Rambo, Woody Allen, and Indiana Jones all rolled into one, he’s a reluctant adventurer and soldier of fortune who masquerades as a mild-mannered New Jersey tailor. Although he’d rather be home taking the measure of a new suit, there’s always some new high-tech, high-powered criminal ready to take measure of him. Lincoln’s latest adventure takes him from the green mountains of Maine to the white shores of Hawaii in search of the Odin Soldier, an ancient Viking statuette. The small wooden figure is the source of miraculous supernatural power, and if it falls into the wrong hands, it could lead to an age of destruction and dictatorship on a global scale. The wrong hands belong to one Florenz Cull, a white-haired, one-eyed, seven-foot giant, whom Lincoln has killed once already, but who keeps coming back for more. Cull has devised a diabolical plan to seize the statue and turn the world into a vast empire under his control. All Blackthorne has to do is stop him… Whether he’s cruising at nine thousand feet in a pilotless plane filled with poison, risking his hide in a red-hot bath of lava, or taking his chances with a red-haired seductress, it’s all in a day’s work for the misfit spy and master tailor out to sew up this case—before it unravels him. If you have an eye for fun, fantasy, and futuristic firepower, Lincoln Blackthorne is the man to watch. (previously published as written by Geoffrey Marsh)
