Welcome to Maple Street, a picture-perfect slice of suburban Long Island, its residents bound by their children, their work, and their illusion of safety in a rapidly changing world.
But menace skulks among this exclusive enclave. When the Wilde family arrive, they trigger their neighbors’ worst fears. Dad Arlo’s a gruff has-been rock star with track marks. Mom Gertie’s got a thick Brooklyn accent, with high heels and tube tops to match. Their weird kids cuss like sailors. They don’t fit with the way Maple Street sees itself.
Maple Street’s Queen Bee, Rhea Schroeder—a lonely professor repressing a dark past—initially welcomed Gertie, but relations plummeted during one summer evening, when the new best friends shared too much, too soon. By the time the story opens, the Wildes are outcasts.
As tensions mount, a sinkhole opens in a nearby park, and Rhea’s daughter Shelly falls inside. The search for Shelly brings a shocking accusation against the Wildes. Suddenly, it is one mom’s word against the other’s in a court of public opinion that can end only in blood.
Riveting and ruthless, Good Neighbors is “a chilling, compulsively readable novel that looks toward the future in order to help us understand how we live now” (Kevin Wilson, author of Nothing to See Here).
These are tales of wickedness... stories of evil and cunning, written by today's women you should fear. Includes tales from Kelley Armstong, Rachel Caine and Sherrilyn Kenyon, writing in their own bestselling universes.
Hex Life: Wicked New Tales of Witchery will take the classic tropes of tales of witchcraft and infuse them with fresh, feminist perspective and present-day concerns--even if they're set in the past. These witches might be monstrous, or they might be heroes, depending on their own definitions. Even the kind hostess with the candy cottage thought of herself as the hero of her own story. After all, a woman's gotta eat.
Bring out your dread.

A remote and affluent Maine community, Corpus Christi was untouched by the environmental catastrophe that destroyed the neighboring blue-collar town of Bedford. But all that will change in a heartbeat . . .
The nightmare is awakened when third-grade schoolteacher Lois Larkin takes the children on a field trip to Bedford. There in the abandoned woods, a small, cruel boy unearths an ancient horror—a contagious plague that transforms its victims into something violent, hungry . . . and inhuman.
The long, dark night is just beginning. And all hope must die as the contagion feeds—for the malevolence will not rest until it has devoured every living soul in Corpus Christi . . . and beyond.
This landmark tome contains stories by Ursula K. Le Guin, Cory Doctorow, M. Rickert, Paolo Bacigalupi, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, and many others.
La normalità viene interrotta dall’arrivo di una nuova famiglia, composta da Arlo Wilde, una rockstar burbera ed estremamente diversa dagli altri papà, sua moglie, la statuaria Gertie, con un passato da reginetta di bellezza, che si sente socialmente ostracizzata e alla deriva; Julie, una coraggiosa e sfrontata preadolescente che impreca come un marinaio e suo fratello minore Larry.
La loro vicina di casa e “ape regina” di Maple Street, Rhea Schroeder, solitaria professoressa dal passato oscuro, accoglie Gertie e la famiglia nella comunità. Poi, durante una serata estiva piena di spritz, i nuovi “migliori amici” condividono troppo, e troppo presto.
Mentre le tensioni aumentano, una voragine si apre in un parco vicino a Maple Street e la figlia di Rhea, Shelly, cade nel precipizio. Sarà facile, a questo punto, scagliarsi contro i Wilde, i “diversi” in un mondo di uguali: all’improvviso, a valere è la parola di una madre contro l’altra, di un genitore contro l’altro nel “tribunale dell’opinione pubblica”, in un’apoteosi di ipocrisia e crudeltà che finisce nel sangue...
Da un’autrice mito, le cui atmosfere ricordano il mondo alienato e crudele di Shirley Jackson, un ritratto avvincente e spietato della periferia americana. Un incalzante noir letterario, un’esplorazione dissacrante dei rapporti tra vicini in un quartiere bene, dove, dietro una facciata di finta disponibilità, si celano inganni e sopraffazioni.
