Journey into the dark heart of human nature with Moribund Tales. Reminiscent of Victorian Gothic, these nine tales explore the sinister and the strange in the everyday. Last Straw of Humanity is a chilling story of brotherly compassion and things best locked away; confused memories of blood and remorse mingle in Broken Glass; a mysterious voice guides a blind traveler in The Chaperone, and one girl reborn for a sinister purpose seeks her revenge in Infant’s Fingers. Including the acclaimed stories Tears of Repentance and Internal Abduction, Moribund Tales is a raw and visceral collection from the master of horror, Erik Hofstatter. 1. Language: English.

The year 1818 saw the publication of one of the most influential science fiction stories of all time. Frankenstein: Or, Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley had a huge impact on Gothic horror and science fiction genres. The name Frankenstein has become part of our everyday language, often used in derogatory terms to describe scientists who have overstepped a perceived moral line. But how did a 19-year-old woman with no formal education come up with the idea for an extraordinary novel such as Frankenstein? The period 1790-1820 saw huge advances in our understanding of electricity and physiology. Sensational science demonstrations caught the imagination of the general public, and newspapers were full of tales of murder and resurrectionists. It is unlikely that Frankenstein would have been successful in his attempts to create life back in 1818. However, advances in medical science mean we have overcome many of the stumbling blocks that would have thwarted his ambition. We can resuscitate people using defibrillators, we can save lives using blood transfusions and we can prolong life through organ transplants - these procedures are nowadays considered almost routine. Many of these modern achievements are a direct result of 19th-century scientists conducting their gruesome experiments on the dead. Making the Monster explores the science behind Shelley´s book. From tales of reanimated zombie kittens to electrical experiments on human cadavers, Kathryn Harkup examines the science and scientists that influenced Mary Shelley and inspired her most famous creation, Victor Frankenstein. While thankfully we are still far from being able to recreate Victor´s ´creature´, scientists have tried to create the building blocks of life, and the dream of creating life forms from scratch is now tantalisingly close. 1.

It’s been seven years. Seven long years since that cold and cruel Vampire King, Lucius, broke her heart. Her naive little heart destroyed after one painful night when she sneaked in to his Gothic nightclub, Transfusion. Seven years since he humiliated her, casting her aside and telling her just what he thought about her little obsession with him. Then he saved her life. Well, now he is back, and this time he is out for blood, and all she can hope for is that it isn’t hers that’s on the menu. Because she is just your typical, ordinary, everyday girl who works and lives in London. Even if she is trying to make it on her own without the safety of her family. However, growing up knowing of the supernatural world and being human definitely has its drawbacks. Especially when a certain Vampire King has her in mind for a date and his dominant and forceful ways are sending her reignited obsession with him into overdrive. But he does like her...doesn’t he? 1.
