Many moons and suns ago, a baby cradled in a gentle creature's beak floats downward from the stars onto a cottage doorstep. As a sleepy man and wife open the door and stumble over the basket, they lift the blanket and can hardly believe their eyes. With a gurgle of delight, the tiny baby holds out star-like hands. As the childless couple drops to their knees, they read a note pinned to the basket that tells them to guard her well, for she is Sazani Ayan, beloved child of the Ishtari. Brought by ancient thunderbirds to impartially record the lives of Mother Earth's hidden creatures, Sazani is given a mentor and the name Wind Walker. But nothing prepares her for the determined creatures she soon encounters that include a teasing rock spirit and his shape-shifting mother; a lisping baby dragon; dancing Neldons; quarreling tree spirits; a dour whale; and a clairvoyant Yeti. Suzani must put any hesitations aside, for it is now her mission to help the creatures bring strong messages for humankind. In this delightful fantasy tale, as Wind Walker and a new friend discover their special gifts, they must summon help from Earth's magical creatures in order to overcome painful obstacles and grow into their true destinies.

Who is planning to murder Jillian West? Somebody, somewhere, somehow believes her life is in danger and that she therefore needs protection. Private Investigator, Phillip Stirling, finds himself way out of his depth when he becomes involved with trying to prevent her demise. This leading Sydney fashion model is about to undertake the most important assignment of her career; a major international fashion launch for Wool Australia. An anonymous voice on his answering machine, plus an initial down-payment in an envelope under his office door, is the start of an intriguing mystery that will take this private eye from the city’s leafy northern suburbs during a scorching, humid summer to the dry heat and dust of a devastating drought in rural New South Wales. The more Phillip Stirling becomes involved, the more he is convinced that there is another agenda – one which would explain the real motive behind the desire to murder his client. Subsequent investigations uncover four possible suspects, four probable motives and four watertight alibies. With Jillian’s life hanging in the balance, can Phillip Stirling find the proof he needs to identify the perpetrator? With signs emerging that it could actually be himself and not Jillian West who is the intended victim, this private detective knows that time is fast running out.

Howard award winner Charles L. Grant has written a vampire novel set in the author's distressing little town of Oxrun Station. It is a region to be found on the same maps as Lovecraft's Arkham and King's Castle Rock. The Soft Whisper of the Dead is the first of the Oxrun tales to be placed in other than a contemporary setting. The first in a trilogy of historical horror novels, it is the account of the evil Count Braslov's attempt to subjugate the Oxrun population to his vampiric will. This first novel of a fast-paced trilogy is fraught with gas-light atmosphere, plucky women, a befuddled constabulary and is filled with the excitement of the classic vampire tale. Great fun!
