Blackwater: The Complete Caskey Family Saga

Blackwater: The Complete Caskey Family Saga

Michael McDowell

Horror / Thriller / Paranormal

Michael McDowell was proclaimed “the finest writer of paperback originals in America” by Stephen King, and “one of the best writers of horror in this country” by Peter Straub. Now, McDowell’s masterpiece—the serial novel, Blackwater—returns to thrill and terrify a new generation of readers, with all six volumes available for the first time as a single e-book. Featuring an insightful new introduction by John Langan, Blackwater traces more than fifty years in the lives of the powerful Caskey family of Perdido, Alabama, under the influence of the mysterious and beautiful—but not quite human—Elinor Dammert. The Flood heralds the arrival of a visitor who will change the Caskey family—and the town—forever… When the town builds The Levee, it proves a vain attempt to control a horrific power that can never be contained… The House hides terrible secrets that whisper in closed rooms and scrabble at locked doors… The War reveals family secrets more deadly and devastating than anything Perdido has ever dreamed in its deepest nightmares… The Fortune brings happiness and power—but even greater terror… And finally, the mysterious saga of the Caskey family ends the only way it can—in terrible judgment and fury delivered under the cover of a relentless, earth-shattering Rain. Will Errickson (Too Much Horror Fiction) writes, “Michael McDowell has written a rich, layered historical novel with many Southern Gothic touches, filled out with memorable characters and satisfying moments of death and shock.”**

Dragon Princess

Science Fiction & Fantasy / Horror

Frank Blackthorne's most recent heist did not end optimally. The sacrificial virgin survived, but the whole incident left Frank, a respectable career thief, on the run from a kingdom full of evil cultists eager to replace their sacrifice. So, when the Court Wizard of Lendowyn, Elhared the Unwise, comes to him intending to hire someone to save Lendowyn’s princess from an evil dragon in return for riches, glory, and help with the bloodthirsty cultists problem, Frank is rightfully suspicious. Frank is also not in a position to refuse. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Frank’s rescue fails—in an explosion of spectacularly misapplied magic. When the dust settles, all parties involved find themselves body-swapped. Frank is left stranded in the Princess Lucille’s body, halfway across the kingdom. The understandably angry Princess Lucille finds herself inhabiting the body of the dragon. In order to set things right, they will have to team up and face down thugs, slavers, elvish bookies, knights in shining armor, an evil Queen, and the hordes of the Dark Lord Nâtalc.**Review"It's a provocative world of deadly enchantment in which the dirty game of politics remains the biggest threat of all."—Locus"Smart ideas and fun action scenes."—iO9"A very well done contemporary fantasy."—SF Chronicle"It's a good energetic mystery, with a complicated plot and lots of chasing-down-the-leads fun."—The Cleveland Plain Dealer"A splendidly constructed space opera."—SF Signal"I'm happy to catch up on the rest of his long list of published works."—SFRevuAbout the AuthorS.
