A CHRONOS Files Novella Simon Rand's life isn't exactly linear, but he's okay with that. He was older than his mother when they first met, and he's traveled pretty much everywhere the CHRONOS key can take him. Much of his childhood was spent in the 1890s on the Cyrist Farm with his friend, Kiernan Dunne, but summer vacations meant hanging out with his grandfather in the 2020s, training to be Saul Rand's right-hand man, and fixing bits of history to help build Cyrist International. But that's just Simon's day job. His true passion is time tourism - jumping right smack into the middle of historical events to see what really happened. Sometimes, however, simply witnessing an event can change it, and when Simon and Kiernan investigate the death of Simon's teenage obsession, Marilyn Monroe, it may just unravel the history he knows and loves. 1.

Part Hitchcock, part Hinton, this first-ever standalone novel from Heather Brewer, New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, uses classic horror elements to tell a darkly funny coming-of-age story about the dangerous power of belief and the cost of blind loyalty. When Stephen's dad says they're moving, Stephen knows it's pointless to argue. They're broke from paying Mom's hospital bills, and now the only option left is to live with Stephen's grandmother in Spencer, a backward small town that's like something out of The Twilight Zone. Population: 814. Stephen's summer starts looking up when he meets punk girl Cara and her charismatic twin brother, Devon. With Cara he feels safe and understood - and yeah, okay, she's totally hot. In Devon and his group, he sees a chance at making real friends. Only as the summer presses on, and harmless nights hanging out in the cemetery take a darker turn, Stephen starts to suspect that Devon is less a friend than a leader. And he might be leading them to a very sinister end.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirby Heyborne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/004407/bk_harp_004407_sample.mp3.

Rob and Jerry were merely coworkers until one happy hour changed their lives forever. Both trying to impress a girl, they enter into a bet - Jerry’s sweet office up against Rob’s editing services. The competition was fierce until....Okay, seriously, I can’t continue with that crap. As you can probably guess, I lost the stupid bet and had to edit this stupid book. I’ve written - but never edited - a book before. But a bet is a bet, so here it is. An intergalactic tale filled with absurd - yet somehow very familiar - characters and an even more ridiculous but predictable plot - guy loves girl, girl loves guy, monster loves girl, monster steals girl and tries to kill guy. And oh yeah, there’s the whole thing about the universe hanging in the balance of potential destruction. Jerry didn’t care too much about the editing process; heck, he didn’t even give the thing a title. He left that part up to me, so I came up with the most accurately truthful title I could think of: Jerry’s Book Sucks: The BookFrom the author of Tamer Animals, The Variant, Candy, and Rotten Little Things, and the author of Train Thoughts and Unsettled. 1.
