Have you heard of these cool classics with a zombie twist? First we had had Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (which is a New York Times Best Seller) and now Steve Hockensmith has written the prequel to Jane Austen’s “zombinated” classic novel.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls is the third Quirk Classic. This book is not based on an original Austen work, but it does stay true to the characters she created and gives Hockensmith an opportunity to fully demonstrate his creative genius.

I remember when I first moved in I thought it would be cool cause the house was over a hundred years old, made of brick, seven bedrooms, a library, a master and a servants stairwell and a huge cellar. The house was beautiful, one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen .

Apparitions, Spirits, Spectral Lights, and Other Hauntings of History and Legend
I just finished reading a book called The Weiser Field Guide to Ghosts by Raymond Buckland. The book is set up like a dictionary with main categories of different types of “Apparitions, Spirits, Spectral Lights, and Other Hauntings of History and Legend”.
Even though it is essentially a reference guide it still makes for some good “sit back” reading. This book is full of interesting facts and stories about everything from ancestral ghosts to animal ghosts, battlefield ghosts to Biblical ghosts, monsters to spectral lights and much more about the strange world around us.

Professional thief, Adam Beesler has seven days to pull off a multi-million dollar jewel heist. Before he can accomplish his goal, he’ll meet an attractive art dealer, deal with a pushy mentor/partner, speak with a dead Irish rogue and face the Devil himself.

Jack tells the younger thief how he came to be one of the emerald isle’s best thieves before being brought down in his 40′s. He will also reveal to Adam what became of him after death.
All the while, the clock ticks down the seconds to the final score.
