They’re here … The boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there’s so many … They’re coming for me now. We’re all going soon. All of us. Pastor Len warn them that the boy he’s not to­­ –
The last words of Pamela May Donald (1961 – 2012)

Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe.

There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt.

But they are not unchanged.

Sarah is a screenwriter and novelist who has written critically acclaimed urban horror stories under the name S.L. Grey with author Louis Greenberg, and a YA pulp fiction zombie series with her daughter, Savannah, under the pseudonym Lily Herne.

New Arrivals

Even the best intentions go awry. My iron resolve not to buy more books has succumbed to the unbearable seduction of discount coupons and the lure of shiny new releases.

The two 50% off discount coupons at Kobo were just too good to resist. I started out buying just one. A couple of days later I bought two more. Then I bought some more...

I got:
Jupiter War - Neal Asher
Marauder - Gary Gibson
On the Steel Breeze - Alastair Reynolds
Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie
Proxima - Stephen Baxter
Doctor Sleep - Stephen King
Promise of Blood - Brian McClellan
Final Days and The Thousand Emperors by Gary Gibson
Wool Omnibus - Hugh Howey
Horror Omnibus - Adam Nevill
Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons

Yes, I might have gone a tad overboard, but I got them at amazing prices (about the same price as 2 hardcover releases) so I'm not regretting it at all. Maybe just a little. Now I only need time to read all the things!
