THE DOORWAY INTO DEPRAVITY For hundreds of years Camarilla vampires have preserved the Masquerade—an intricate dance of deception, misdirection and manipulation that conceals their nocturnal predations from mortal eyes. Now, the Sabbat are about to crash their party. The Clan Novel series takes a sinister turn as the dread Tzimisce emerge from their macabre dungeons and laboratories to take a decidedly unhealthy interest in events. Amid the rising nightmare, charismatic Sascha Vykos—an Old World monster with a New World agenda – brings both scourge and velvet glove to rally the fractious Sabbat forces. A great reckoning awaits the complacent Camarilla—if only Vykos can preserve the volatile alliance and keep the Sabbat serpent from devouring its own tail. This series is a monumental, 13-novel exploration of the forbidden world of the Kindred. What began in Clan Novel: Toreador continues here, and its ending will determine the fate of every human—and inhuman—being in the world.

A Critical Guide to Universal Studios’ Science Fiction, Horror and Mystery Films, 1929–1939
Author: John T. Soister
Category: Performing Arts
While Universal’s Dracula and Frankenstein (both 1931) have received the most coverage of any of the studio’s genre releases, it is the lesser known films that have long fascinated fans and historians alike. Starting with The Last Warning, a 1929 movie released as both a silent and a talkie, Universal provided a decade of films that entertained audiences and sometimes frustrated critics. Each of Universal’s horror, science fiction and “twisted mystery” films receives an in-depth essay for each film. The focus is first on the background to the making of the movie and its place in the Universal catalog. A detailed plot synopsis with critical commentary follows. Filmographic data for the film conclude the entry. Universal’s The Shadow short film series is covered in an appendix. Many rare illustrations and movie posters are also included.
New Orleans attorney Jonathan Brooks is desperate to rebuild his law firm after Hurricane Katrina. Short on clients, he takes the only work he can find: a murky business deal in Ukraine. But after he lands in Kyiv, his client’s executive vanishes. Suspecting foul play, Jonathan enlists the help of a U.S. diplomat. But the next day they are brutally ambushed. Injured and racing against the clock, Jonathan embarks on a frantic search for clues through the back alleys of Kyiv to an abandoned town near Chernobyl. Meanwhile, Jonathan’s ex-wife Linda, a journalist, lands in North Korea to report on historic nuclear disarmament talks. She begins probing local officials, not realizing that she and Jonathan are both on a collision course with a deadly web of hackers, spies and assassins. To uncover the truth and save them both, Jonathan may have only one option: to go to Pyongyang with as much leverage as possible and try to make it out alive. Praise for THE PYONGYANG OPTION: “A.C. Frieden writes settings better than any thriller writer I know. From North Korea to Chernobyl to the Ukraine and post-Katrina New Orleans, Frieden’s ability to add the most telling details to a scene cast a spell that kept me glued to the page. Set in the recent past, The Pyongyang Option is not just a compelling espionage thriller, but one that neatly foreshadows the shifting, murky alliances intelligence officers are grappling with today. Don’t miss it.” —Libby Fischer Hellmann, author of the Jump Cut and War, Spies & Bobby Sox espionage thrillers “Jonathan Brooks returns in a masterfully-crafted, action-packed thriller that plunges readers into the intriguing depths of international espionage and a secretive regime.” —Francis Gary Powers, Jr., Founder and Chairman Emeritus, The Cold War Museum and author of Spy Pilot: Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 Incident, and a Controversial Cold War Legacy “Jonathan Brooks is the kind of character you’d follow anywhere. And A.C. Frieden serves up another delicious tangle of multi-layered suspense, international intrigue, regional flair, and heart-pounding action. A top-notch thriller.” —Lisa Towles, award-winning author of Choke and other books
