The Night Parade
Author: Ronald Malfi
First the birds disappeared. Then the insects took over. And the madness began . . . They call it Wanderer’s Folly—a disease of delusions, of daydreams and nightmares. A plague threatening to wipe out the human race. After two years of creeping decay, David Arlen woke up one morning thinking that the worst was over. By midnight, he’s bleeding and terrified, his wife is dead, and he’s on the run in a stolen car with his eight-year-old daughter, who may be the key to a cure. Ellie is a special girl. Deep. Insightful. And she knows David is lying to her. Lying about her mother. Lying about what they're running from. And lying about what he sees when he takes his eyes off the road . . . Praise for Ronald Malfi and His Novels “Best horror novel of the year.”—Hunter Shea “Slowly but surely creeps under your skin.” —The Horror Bookshelf “An emotionally compelling and interesting read.”—Booklist “A beautiful and ultimately terrifying story.”—Shotgun Logic

I Always Find You
Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist
Publisher: Text Publishing
In September 1985, nineteen-year-old John Lindqvist moved into a dilapidated old building in Stockholm, planning to make his living as a magician. Something strange was going on in the locked shower room in the building’s basement—and the price of entry was just a little blood. I Always Find You is a horror story—as bizarre and macabre as any of Lindqvist’s earlier novels—but it’s also a melancholy meditation on being young and lonely, on making friends and growing up. It’s about magic, and the intensity of human connection—and the evil we carry inside. John Ajvide Lindqvist lives in Sweden, and has worked as a magician and stand-up comedian. His first novel, the international bestseller Let the Right One In, was published in more than thirty countries. Marlaine Delargy is based in the UK. She has translated novels by Swedish writers including Kristina Ohlsson, Viveca Sten and Johan Theorin—with whom she won the CWA International Dagger 2010 for The Darkest Room. ‘As imaginative and brilliant as any of Stephen King’s famous stories...Eerie and compelling.’ Canberra Weekly on I Am Behind You ‘A genuine skin-crawler of a book.’ Otago Daily Times on I Am Behind You.
