Dispossession

What would you do if you woke up in hospital and your last memory was dated January, but the calendar said April? If they said you'd crashed a car, and you not only didn't remember the crash, you didn't remember the car either? If you were a solicitor and rigidly honest, and the biggest bunch of flowers in your room came from the biggest crook in town? If there were no flowers or visits from your girlfriend, but the total stranger at your bedside claimed to be your wife - and proved it? If someone drove a blazing truck through the window in an obvious attempt to kill somebody, and very possibly you?

When all this happened to Jonty Marks, he ran for sanctuary. To the mountain garden of a fallen angel. Where else...?

Dead of Light

When Benedict left home, it was maybe the first time he'd stood up to his family. It was also meant to be the last. No contact, he said, I'm disinvesting.

In all honesty, they weren't sorry to see him go. Ben had never had their talent, never had the family spark. When you run a city - especially the way the Macallans ran theirs - the last thing you need is a reluctant passenger.

But suddenly Ben's learning a lot, far more than his university course could ever teach him. And as his family starts to die one by one - vicious, gruesome, horrible deaths - the chief lesson is that you can't turn your back on blood. There's someone in the city with as much talent as the Macallans, and Ben's connected after all. It's there in his body, it's in his veins; and be it thick or thin, be it still pumping or leaking out, blood is very much darker than water...

Being Small

British Fantasy Award winner Chaz Brenchley has crafted a deeply personal ghost story of dead twins and mad mothers, of Moleskine notebooks and teen friendships, of AIDS care-givers and more. 


“... a powerful, moving book that will haunt me a long, long time.” 

—JAIME LEE MOYER, award-winning author of Delia’s Shadow.


Michael’s shadow twin – Small – was his fetus in fetu before being removed and preserved in a specimen jar at the medical school. Michael and his single mother keep the rest of the world at bay while they hold the spirit of Small close – she homeschools Michael, moves house every six months, and at restaurants she asks for a table for three, “but there’ll only be the two of us eating.”


When Michael turns sixteen, he meets a household of men caring for Quin, dying of AIDS. Michael is drawn ever more deeply out of his lifelong conversation with his mother and Small and into the far more tangible world he finds at the house down the street with Quin, Kit, Gerard, and the others ... 


... and discovers some unexpected things about himself in the process.
