A Blizzard of the Century is about to roar into Alfheim… Sociopathic mundanes. Fae royalty. And the woman formerly known as the Bride. Enter the uniquely magical world of Northern Creatures with the stories FOUR through SIX: Wolf Hunted: When a rich mundane shows up to harass the local magicals, everyone in town knows he’s a menace. There’s nothing they can do though, at least not magically. Not with the worst snowstorm in decades about to bury Alfheim—and the Alfheim Pack’s full moon run. With natural threats occupying the elves, unraveling the danger the interloper poses to the town falls to Frank Victorsson and Sheriff Ed Martinez. But Frank is consumed with finding his mystery woman, and things quickly spiral out of control… Fae Touched: When the events surrounding the Samhain blizzard cause two dryads to come sniffing around Alfheim, Frank and Ellie are pulled into the center of a long-standing—and secret—battle between Arne Odinsson and Ellie’s terrifying mother, Titania, Queen of the Fae. But not everything fae is as it seems, and not all that is elf shows its true face. As Frank fights to hold onto Ellie, they must navigate not only a minefield of fae slights and elven anger, but also deadly magic bent on destroying Ellie’s life…. Death Kissed: When a vamped-out kelpie starts a chain reaction that lands Wrenn Goodfellow in Alfheim, it’s up to Sheriff Eduardo Martinez to help her capture a deadly fugitive — and to keep her Victor Frankenstein-fueled rage away from Frank and Alfheim’s magical population. But when Ed’s family gets caught in the crossfire, he must decide who to trust: the fae lawwoman, or his secretive elven bosses…. Northern Creatures, where the man formerly known as Frankenstein’s Monster navigates Nordic elves, vampires, and technologically advanced fae as the world staggers toward the one thing no one wants: Ragnarok. Enjoy Northern Creatures, the lovechild of Penny Dreadful and American Gods raised by its doting Midwestern aunt, Fargo, today.

"This is the first book to concentrate exclusively on texts about Boudica and to cover the full chronological range from the first surviving historical account by Tacitus in AD 98 to the triumphant conclusion of Manda Scott's series of novels in 2006. All our knowledge of the ancient British queen Boudica, and her ferocious yet ultimately unsuccessful rebellion against the Romans, is derived from a few accounts in ancient Greek and Latin. Yet they have inspired a flood of history, fictional narrative, drama, and poetry, and there is no indication that the process has ended. This study illuminates and celebrates the rich variety generated by the creative tensions between writers' knowledge and their individual tastes, beliefs, and political or artistic aims and considers whether Boudica's textual metamorphoses are without limits or variations on a distinctive theme bounded by a flexible yet enduring narrative pattern." --Book Jacket.

Author: George R. R. Martin
The epic saga that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones made George R. R. Martin an international phenomenon, but there’s much more to this versatile, prolific, and original author. In addition to the book that kicks off A Song of Ice of Fire, this eBook bundle includes Dreamsongs: Volume I, which showcases Martin’s early writings; Fevre Dream, the acclaimed author’s reinvention of the vampire novel; and The Armageddon Rag, a thrilling story of psychedelic—and apocalyptic—rock. Spanning genres of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and suspense, Martin’s virtuosic talents will surprise and delight even his most devoted fans. A GAME OF THRONES “The only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As sinister forces mass beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser is dead and his enemies are emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself. DREAMSONGS: VOLUME I “The ideal way to discover . . . a master of science fiction, fantasy and horror. . . . Martin is a writer like no other.”—The Guardian (U.K.) Gathered here are the very best of Martin’s early works, including his Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker award–winning stories, cool fan pieces, and the original novella The Ice Dragon, from which his New York Times bestselling children’s book of the same title originated. With extensive author commentary, Dreamsongs: Volume I is a rare treat, offering fascinating insights into Martin’s journey from young writer to award-winning master. FEVRE DREAM “An adventure into the heart of darkness that transcends even the most inventive vampire novels.”—Los Angeles Herald Examiner Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something’s amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare—and humankind’s most impossible dream. THE ARMAGEDDON RAG “The best novel concerning the American pop music culture of the sixties I’ve ever read.”—Stephen King Onetime underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the sixties—until he’s drawn back by the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with a band called the Nazgûl. As Sandy investigates the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past. For a new messiah has resurrected the Nazgûl along with a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change.
