In this dark and gritty collection—featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman—nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil.. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line.

New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s Sleepover finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything “weird.” They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie. In New York Times bestselling Kevin J. Anderson’s Eye of Newt, Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble’s latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner... And New York Times bestselling author Rob Thurman’s infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals wih some overdue—and nightmarish—vengeance involving some quite nasty Impossible Monsters.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling sequel to A Discovery of Witches, book two of the All Souls Trilogy—“as enchanting, engrossing, and impossible to put down as its predecessor” (Miami Herald) J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has with her New York Times–bestselling All Souls trilogy. A Discovery of Witches introduces reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782. Picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night takes Diana and Matthew on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night. As the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey.

Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy’s shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion—to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory. And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity’s ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake… From the Hardcover edition.

“The soul is beyond the human frame of reference; that is, beyond the limits of the human experience and human understanding.” Something is wrong with human existence. Do we acknowledge it? To some, the evidence is all around us, demanding our attention. Can we really change? Yes, we can. Can we really change the human experience? Yes, we can, but to do so we must change our point of existence, our frame of reference. We must learn to see with different eyes. The ills of this world have their source within each one of us, and so it is within each one of us that the source of the world's ills must be dealt with. And we can start by acknowledging the existence of the soul, the higher-dimensional Self, that powerful and extraordinarily beautiful spark of divinity that exists within each one of us. The Messiah Perspective is a series of dialogues, each one of which is set within the context of a story for palatability, and each of which contains the truth of human existence as I see it: human psychology and spirituality, human nature, and human reality. Furthermore, these dialogues are the path I have trodden as I cut a swathe through the layers of programming, harmful beliefs, learned behaviours, and the lower-dimensional perspectives and mindsets that currently characterise human existence. These dialogues are the path I have walked to transform my own perspective, to see with different eyes, and to set free the radiance of my own soul.
