by Peter M. Ball
A hit man. An apocalyptic cult. A demon with a grudge.
Keith Murphy’s on the run after botching his last hit, fleeing Adelaide with a necromancer’s soul in his pocket and an apocalyptic cult on his heels. Seeking a hiding spot where magic can’t trace him, Keith heads for the one place nobody expects: home.
Thirteen years ago, Keith left the employ of the demonic crime boss Sabbath, disappearing into the night without a word. Now he’s back, and Sabbath demands a toll before Keith can take refuge on Sabbath’s turf — assassinate three of the demon’s enemies, or Keith forfeits his life.
Keith doesn’t want to be a killer anymore, but he’s all out of choices and things have changed for the worse back home: his best friend has gone to the dark side, his ex-girlfriend is running a club for supernaturals, and it seems like Sabbath isn’t the only one who wants Keith dead.
A fast-paced Australian urban fantasy thriller full of magic, supernatural creatures, betrayal, and deals with the devil. If you ever wanted a little John Constantine blended in with your John Wick, you’re going to love Keith Murphy.
Ghost Pirate Gambit
by Jessie Kwak
Haunted space stations? Puzzling totems? Cursed relics? No job’s too bizarre for the crew of the Nanshe.
Lasadi doesn’t like strangers on her ship, but she’ll need a bigger crew if she’s going to steal a mysterious artifact from a dead pirate’s long-lost space station. She takes a chance on a charming grifter named Raj, along with a skilled hacker and her genius little brother. And it’s . . . nice? If Lasadi isn’t careful, she’s going to start enjoying having a crew aboard.
Raj’s last bit of luck capsized right before he ran into Lasadi, and this job could finally get his life back on track — as long as Lasadi never learns the truth about his past. Raj isn’t the only one on this crew with secrets, though, and Auburn Station holds more than long-dead ghosts. Unless this fledgling crew can learn to trust each other, none of them are getting off this station alive.
The Nanshe Chronicles is set in Jessie Kwak’s Durga System, where humans have managed to populate the stars, but they haven’t left behind their vices. And that’s very good for business. Perfect for fans of Cowboy Bebop, Firefly, and Leverage.
by A.L. Hawke
I fell in love with a goth, but she’s a witch.
Starting school at Hawthorne University was not going well, until I met my classmate Alondra. Allie was different. She was goth. But she was also mysterious, confident and fun. I was into that. My name’s Liam. My friends call me Lee.
Things got weird after I accompanied her to her haunts. Poltergeists and demons attacked little girls. I watched Alondra help exorcise these ghosts, but some of their evil stuck to me.
Well, being attracted to a witch was one thing; dating one was quite another. It seemed the closer I got to Allie, the more her witchcraft endangered my friends. And my soul. You decide. I chronicled everything here in her book.
Alondra is a prequel to the internationally bestselling Hawthorne University Witch series. The novel takes place twenty years before Broomstick.
by ETHAN KOIL
Floating Hair is a bleak, brutal, and unsettling horror novel. If you are looking for something cozy, this really isn’t it.
David, mourning for his wife, returns to the town of his childhood: finding love and solace and escape.
Yet sometimes the past won’t remain buried as it should. Sometimes it returns hungry for revenge. So very hungry…
Monsters: I Bring the Fire Part II (A Loki Series)
by C. Gockel
After being attacked by a serial killer, saved by Loki — so-called God of Mischief, Lies and Chaos — dragged to Alfheim, losing every cent in her bank account, and caring for her grandmother, Amy Lewis has lost her scholarship to veterinary school. But she has a plan. If she manages to keep her day job as a receptionist, and her night job as a vet tech, she may be able to get her scholarship reinstated and save enough money for the dreaded ‘miscellaneous fees.’
Too bad her day boss is unbearable…
Agent Steve Rogers has political aspirations, but when a suitcase nuke turns out to be something much worse and so-called Norse gods start showing up in his life, he has a priority shift.
Meanwhile, Loki’s priorities and plans haven’t changed at all. He wants Asgard to burn. Of course, earthly pleasures can be so distracting.
These three disparate characters have little in common, but they’ll have to join forces to save earth from trolls, wyrms, frost giant invasions, and an old evil growing beneath Chicago’s streets.
In this second volume of I Bring the Fire, Chaos comes to our world and decides to stay. The nine realms will never be the same.

Who is hunting the gallowglass?
When Karina and Robert relocated from Scotland to New York, they expected things to settle down. New York is known for many things, but a hotbed of supernatural occurrences isn’t one of them. Karina returned to her life as a graduate student, and agreed to teach a class over winter break. That was when things got weird: first she and Robert encountered an angry centaur, then a fairy enrolled in her class, and Karina learned that her mentor just might be a deity. When the Seelie King started making unannounced visits to Karina’s apartment in the middle of the night and warning her and Robert to be careful, she knew things were serious.
All of these events led to a single question: Who doesn’t want the gallowglass on American soil?
Meanwhile, Chris has problems of his own. The university grudgingly restored his teaching position, his agent and publisher are hounding him for a sequel to his worldwide bestseller… and he wonders if he can teach again. Write again. Hell, he can barely even speak to a woman after what happened between him and the Seelie Queen. Then a woman—a fairy woman—comes into Chris’s life, and damn it all if he doesn’t want her to stay there.
The god plays their hand, and the Seelie King calls Robert to his side. Alone and more frightened than she’s ever been, Karina tries to solve the mystery of who is hunting the gallowglass. Will Karina find the answer in time, or will Robert be lost forever?
