In Crimson Death, the twenty-fifth Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, adventure by Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton, Anita is tested like never before in a showdown that will delight readers of Charlaine Harris and Anne Rice. 'Hamilton is still thrilling fans...with her amazing multifaceted characters and intricate multilayered world, a mix of erotic romance, crime-drama, and paranormal/fantasy fiction' Library Journal Some say love is a great motivator, but hatred gets the job done, too. My name is Anita Blake. I'm a vampire hunter and necromancer, and I'm about to learn that evil is in the eye of the beholder... I've never seen Damian, my vampire servant, so vulnerable. He's being bombarded with violent nightmares and blood sweats, but now is the time I need him most. The ruthless vampire who created him might be losing control, allowing rogue vampires to run wild and break one of their kind's few strict taboos. I'm joining forces with my friend Edward to stop the carnage, and Damian will be at our side, even if it means travelling to a place that couldn't be less welcoming to a vampire, an assassin and a necromancer.

Through thirty compelling essays written in the prisoners’ own words, Crimson Letters: Voices from Death Row offers stories of brutal beatings inside juvenile hall, botched suicide attempts, the terror of the first night on Death Row, the pain of goodbye as a friend is led to execution, and the small acts of humanity that keep hope alive for men living in the shadow of death. Each carefully crafted personal essay illuminates the complex stew of choice and circumstance that brought four men to Death Row and the cycle of dehumanization and brutality that continues inside prison. At times the men write with humor, at times with despair, at times with deep sensitivity, but always with keen insight and understanding of the common human experience that binds us.

While still a teenager, Paul Crimson (1947 - 1973) was drafted by the U.S. Army and trained to kill in the Viet Nam war. When he returned home after three years, he employed his only other talent to write a novel about his war experiences. His effort, “Velvet Nights”, became a runaway bestseller. The royalties from the book sales allowed Crimson to sink deeper into the drug abuse he had acquired in Viet Nam. His editor eventually convinced him to write a follow-up to his success novel, and the book you now hold in your hands was the result. Shortly after Crimson finished “The Ship”, he was found dead from a drug overdose. On the surface “The Ship” is about three people stranded in a snowstorm who find shelter onboard a Spanish galleon. There they encounter seven psychopaths whose actions make you cringe with suspense as they force their wills upon their visitors. Yet, the story Crimson wrote is truly about his attempt to cleanse his troubled mind from the insanity his soldiering days had provoked. It’s worth noting that, although the setting is fictitious, he personally witnessed or committed the acts he describes. Due to complex legal issues in the wake of his death, Paul Crimson’s book “The Ship” was never published. Now, for the first in over forty years, this disturbing document by a talented, prematurely dead young man is finally available to the public. "This novel is a strange mix of classic suspense and camp grotesquery. The premise is wonderfully spooky ... The plot is oddly compelling; fans of contemporary bizarro fiction in particular will enjoy the depths to which Crimson drags Corey and his companions. An engaging horror novel." - Kirkus Reviews

"Operator #5, America's Secret Service Ace, appeared in 48 novels in the classic pulp magazine bearing his name. From April 1934 to November 1939, Jimmy Christopher fought villains from inside the United States and invaders from without. With World War II looming on the horizon, the Operator #5 novels became a reflection of the times, showcasing American fears of technology and oppression. In Invasion of the Crimson Death Cult, Kasma, a baleful divinity from the wastes of Asia, has laid his blighting curse upon America. All who oppose him come to ghastly ends: amnesia, madness, and screaming, agonizing death-for the cult of Kasma enforces its dread dictates with a new, deadly weapon, unseen, unheard, which razed the mightiest buildings, which lay wide regions barren -- without man or bird or beast! One man, Jimmy Christopher -- known in the Secret Service as Operator #5 - understood the grim purpose behind that crafty plan. And Operator #5, hampered by a superior's short-sightedness, beset on every side by peril and treachery, takes the greatest gamble in his career to keep an army of religion-crazed zealots from delivering America into the bondage of an Asiatic Moloch! One of the bloodiest pulp magazines ever produced, Operator #5 has a well-deserved reputation for thrill-a-minute action and peril. If you like pulp fiction, you'll love Operator #5."

The presence of the white men ignites a storm of Indian fury and the group is besieged. Donegan and some 27 men and one woman take shelter in a few sod shanties.

If you are a leader - or aspiring to be one - then tools like PowerPoint detract, not add, to how your performance will be received. In fact, leadership and the ability to speak and sell yourself and your ideas are inextricably intertwined. Successful leaders speak to help listeners know themselves as well as to influence and inspire them. Chris Witt has helped hundreds of executives take their game to another level. Because, when you are a leader, being a good speaker isn't enough. You have to be a great speaker. Your reputation and the success of your business depend on being able to speak to a variety of audiences confidently and persuasively. Through contemporary and historical examples, Chris provides practical advice on how his readers can take their game to another level by understanding ideas such as: * You are the message - it's your experience, vision and character that audiences want * As a leader, you have only three speeches: to identify, to influence and to inspire * Speak less to say more. Fewer, shorter speeches have greater impact * Dare to be different. Leaders don't play by the rules; they take risks.

You can’t trust the Bible; it’s been translated too many times. Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah or God. Science has proven that miracles don’t happen (so the Bible is a fairytale). All religions basically teach the same thing (so all paths lead to God). Have you heard these? People say a lot of things about the Bible, God, Jesus, and Christianity that are simply not true. Like the guys on the popular cable show Mythbusters, it’s time we put these commonly held myths to the test. Following a brief summary of a recurring myth or misconception about the Christian faith, Fred explains why the myth is false and provides biblical and historical evidence in his response. He masterfully weaves together serious discussion with a touch of humor in his responses, all the while keeping the focus on the Scriptures. He avoids making fun of the people who hold views which differ from his own, but the views themselves are fair game. So grab a cup of coffee and find a cozy corner. Let’s do a little myth busting of our own.
