What are the holidays but a time for spooks? A Christmas Carol came out of the English tradition of ghost stories at Christmas, and I for one think we should bring that back. Fangs might not raise the hairs on your neck, but this endearing story about the love between a vampire and a werewolf will warm your heart.

Somehow, in spite of my love for Saga, Runaways, and all of BKV's other modern classics, I missed Ex Machina. Finally discovered it through this omnibus and WOW! As timely now as it was when it was first released this techno-thriller is rooted in the real world while offering some sterling sci-fi. Makes for a great gift or quarantine binge.

Published: Scribner - August 4th, 2020

I don't think I'm alone in saying that there is something comforting about hearing about the end of the universe, and there's no one better to tell you about it than Dr. Katie Mack. This book is told with the conversational humor that can only come from someone that is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also incredibly passionate about a subject. Dr Mack brings us through six ways the universe can end, some far off, and some that could happen at any moment. This is the perfect book for anyone with a morbid sense of curiosity who loves the stars.
