David Warwick, an Englishman living in New York, has a sudden premonition that his twin brother, Colin, is in danger. He returns to England and learns the shocking truth: both Colin and his young bride Helen have died ghastly deaths - deaths that no one in the village wants to talk about. Now David has inherited his brother's home, Gerrard's Hill Cottage, a lovely house with a lush garden that seems to promise peace and comfort to all who dwell there. But as David tries to unearth the facts of what really happened to his brother and his wife, he has no idea of the horror and evil that surround him or the terrible fate that may be in store ... A chilling story that builds slowly and inexorably towards its shocking climax, Bernard Taylor's "Sweetheart, Sweetheart"(1977) has been recognized as one of the finest horror novels ever written. This edition features a new introduction by Michael Rowe. "My favorite ghost story ... at once manages to be both moving and extremely unsettling ... there isn't anything that beats it." - Charles L. Grant "Ingenious and well-crafted - a most satisfying chiller!" - "Grand Rapids Press" "A slow-burning, invisibly seductive ghost story." - "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)"

Nicholas, ein Möchtegern-Dichter, und Nakota, seine animalische Geliebte, entdecken ein merkwürdiges Loch in einer Abstellkammer am Ende des Gangs: "Reines Schwarz und etwas Pulsierendes, besonders, wenn man zu genau hinsieht, das Gefühl, dass dort etwas nicht lebt, aber dennoch lebendig ist..." Es beginnt mit Neugier, mit einem Spaß - das Geisterloch am Ende des Gangs. Aber dann beginnt - das Experiment: "Wäre es nicht absolut geil, dort hinabzusteigen?", fragt Nakota. Und Nicholas antwortet: "Ja, aber wir werden's nicht tun..." Doch vom ersten Moment an haben sie keinerlei Kontrolle über dieses Experiment - und Experimente dieser Art führen zu Obsessionen, zu Gewalt und zur unumkehrbaren Veränderung eines jeden, der dem Geisterloch zu nahe kommt. So gerät Nicholas immer stärker in den Sog des schwarzen Abgrunds, der alles zu verschlingen droht...THE CIPHER wurde im Jahr 1991 mit dem Bram Stoker-Award ausgezeichnet und erst kürzlich als einer der Top-Ten-Debüt-Romane bezeichnet, welche die Welt im Sturm erobert haben (io9.com). Der Apex-Verlag veröffentlicht THE CIPHER als neu übersetzte Ausgabe, ergänzt um ein Vorwort der Autorin."Ein gewaltiger Erstlingsroman – ebenso erregend wie erschreckend."(Publishers Weekly)"Von Anfang bis Ende eine ätherische Achterbahnfahrt."(The Detroit Press)"The Cipher... verbindet unerbittliche poetische Sprache mit dem Verschwenderisch-Groteskem."(BoingBoing)"Kathe Koja ist eine Poetin - von jener Art, die es vorzieht, in heruntergekommenen Bars statt in Universitäten zu lesen, aber zweifellos eine Poetin."(The New York Review Of Science Fiction)

‘Turn yourself in,’ Archie said. He pressed the fingers of one hand into his right temple, trying to slow the pulse of blood that beat against his skin. Susan was taking notes, recording everything.

In a “powerful tale of a person’s capacity for reinvention” (Kirkus Reviews), a teenage girl from Philadelphia leaves her old life behind to become The Sweetheart, one of America’s most infamous female wrestlers. It’s 1953 and seventeen-year-old Leonie Putzkammer feels destined to spend the rest of her life waiting tables and living with her widowed father, Franz, in their Philadelphia row house. Until the day legendary wrestling promoter Salvatore Costantini walks into the local diner and offers her the chance to make a name for herself in the ring. Leonie sets off for Florida to train at Joe Pospisil’s School for Lady Grappling. There, she transforms into Gorgeous Gwen Davies, tag-team partner of legendary Screaming Mimi Hollander, and begins a romance with the soon-to-be Junior Heavyweight Champion Spider McGee. But when life as Gorgeous Gwen leaves her wanting more, she orchestrates a move that will catapult her from heel to hero: she becomes The Sweetheart, a choice that attracts the fans she desires but complicates all of her relationships—with Franz, Joe, Spider, Mimi (who becomes her fiercest competitor), and even with herself. Asking the big questions about what it means to grow up, and stay true to yourself, The Sweetheart is daring, innovative, and powerful storytelling. “With a debut both endearing and enjoyable, this is a hands-down winner” (Star-Telegram, Dallas).

AN ABANDONED ROAD There is a path now where once there was a road Where smooth brown earth and jaded rocks Fell away in deep depression The trail of wheels and neighing horses and of lighter walks It grows thick and tall, the grass that was once held at bay Dared not to rise where tramping feet would crush But staged on edge where cruel ungainly winds Vent their wrath unceasingly with rain and dust It has conquered now, for slowly the grinding ceased And the lighter steps dwindled with the laughter it had known It dared to rise between the ruts and bend To hide the scars from some stray steps that roam And intrude upon their sanctuary, where conquered winds Hold not the lash of yore, but with gentleness obey The lull moods of quiet rains, the brushed air That shrouds the stillness of an abandoned road
