Bocc, the village outcast, takes one look at Starla and decides he’ll be the winning male. To claim her, he must battle his former tribesmen, defeat her overly possessive android and save his world from an invading army. But if Bocc wishes to keep his mate forever, he must also accept his android rival.

Satan’s Reach is the second volume in the Weird Space series, a fast-paced action-adventure that pits humanity against the unimaginable Terror from Beyond. A thrilling Space Opera series created by master SF author Eric Brown. Telepath Den Harper did the dirty work for the authoritarian Expansion, reading the minds of criminals, spies and undesirables. Unable to take the strain, he stole a starship and headed into the unknown, a sector of lawless space known as Satan’s Reach. For five years he worked as a trader among the stars — then discovered that the Expansion had set a bounty hunter on his trail. But what does the Expansion want with a lowly telepath like Harper? Is there validity in the rumours that human space is being invaded by aliens from another realm? Harper finds out the answer to both these questions when he rescues an orphan girl from certain death — and comes face to face with the dreaded aliens known as the Weird. Satan’s Reach is the second volume in the Weird Space series, a fast-paced action-adventure that pits humanity against the unimaginable Terror from Beyond.

The Santaland Diaries

SantaLand Diaries collects six of David Sedaris¿s most profound Christmas stories into one slender volume perfect for use as a last-minute coaster or ice-scraper. ¿SantaLand Diaries¿, ¿Dinah the Christmas Whore¿ and ¿Seasons Greetings from the Dunbar Family!!!¿ ¿ all three of these previously published stories have been set into a refreshing new typeface and joined by a trio of equally charming newcomers.
This drinking man¿s companion can be enjoyed by the warmth of a raging fire, the glow of a brilliantly decorated tree, or even in the back seat of a police car. It should be read with your eyes, felt with your heart, and heard only when spoken to. It should, in short, behave much like a book. And oh, what a book it is!
¿My costume is green. I wear green velvet knickers, a yellow turtleneck, a forest-green velvet smock, and a perky stocking cap decorated with spangles. This is my work uniform. My elf name is Crumpet ¿¿ ¿ ¿SantaLand Diaries¿
¿Were I to receive a riding vacuum cleaner or even a wizened proboscis monkey, it wouldn¿t please me half as much as knowing we were the only family in the neighborhood with a prostitute in our kitchen. From this moment on, the phrase ¿Ho, ho, ho¿ would take on a whole different meaning¿ ¿ ¿Dinah, the Christmas Whore¿
¿If you happened to stand over four feet tall, the agony awaiting you at Sacred Heart Elementary began the moment you took your seat. These were mean little chairs corralled into a ¿theater¿ haunted by the lingering stench of industrial-strength lasagne¿ ¿ ¿Front Row Centre with Thaddeus Bristol¿

Salt

In the near future, the effects of a catastrophic solar flare have left the earth almost entirely submerged, with only the tops of the very tallest mountains remaining above water. Moored to one of these peaks is a flotilla of ships and boats containing all of the planet’s known survivors. One hundred and twenty-five souls remain, but not for long–a mysterious infection is turning the air they breathe and the water they drink into deadly hazards. Twelve volunteers have been sent out to look for help–or even any signs of life–and none have returned. It now falls to Eva, a former cop, and Jim, the flotilla’s elected leader, to keep the fragile peace among the inhabitants. Humanity is depending on them for its survival–together, can they find the answers in time?

Salmonella Men on Planet Porno

“This collection of off-kilter short stories – the American debut of acclaimed Japanese writer Yasutaka Tsutsui – portrays the consequences of a world where the fantastic and the mundane collide and throw the lives of ordinary men and women into disarray.” “In “The Dabba Dabba Tree,” Tsutsui describes the hilarious side effects of a small conical tree that. when placed at the foot of one’s bed, creates erotic dreams that metamorphose into communal farce. In “Commuter Army” – a sly commentary on the ludicrousness of war – a weapons supplier whose rifles cease functioning after just one shot becomes an unwilling conscript in a war zone. “The World Is Tilting” imagines a floating city that slowly begins to sink on one side, causing its citizens to reorient their daily lives to preserve a semblance of normality. In “Rumors About Me,” an ordinary office worker finds himself the subject of intense media scrutiny, his every action documented in the tabloids. And in the title story, we learn just how obscenely absurd the environment on Planet Porno can seem to a group of hapless research scientists.”–BOOK JACKET.

Salem Falls

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult
When Jack St. Bride arrives by chance in the sleepy New England town of Salem Falls, he decides to reinvent himself. Tall, blond, and handsome, Jack was once a beloved teacher and soccer coach at a girls’ prep school—until a student’s crush sparked a powder keg of accusation and robbed him of his reputation. Now, working for minimum wage washing dishes for Addie Peabody at the Do-Or-Diner, Jack buries his past, content to become the mysterious stranger who has appeared out of the blue.
With ghosts of her own haunting her, Addie Peabody is as cautious around men ad Jack St. Bride is around women. But as this unassuming stranger steps smoothly into the diner’s daily routine, she finds him fitting just as comfortably inside her heart—and slowly, a gentle, healing love takes hold between them.
Yet planting roots in Salem Falls may prove fateful for Jack. Amid the white-painted centuries-old churches, a quartet of bored, privileged teeage girls have formed a coven that is crossing the line between amusment and malicious intent. Quick to notice the attractive new employee at Addie’s diner, the girls turn Jack’s world upside down with a shattering allegation that causes history to repeat itself—and forces Jack to proclaim his innocence once again. Suddenly nothing in Salem Falls is as it seems: a safe haven turns dangerous, an innocent girl meets evil face-to-face, a dishwasher with a Ph.D. is revealed to be an ex-con. As Jack’s hidden past catches up with him, the seams of this tiny town begin to tear, and the emerging truth becomes a slippery concept written in shades of gray. Now Addie, desperate for answers, must look into her heart—and into Jack’s lies and shadowy secrets&3151;for evidence that will condemn or redeem the man she has come to love.
