Beauty and the Beast

by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve

This is the first published version of Beauty and the Beast, written by the French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in the mid-18th century and translated by James Robinson Planché. It is a novel-length story intended for adult readers, addressing the issues of the marriage system of the day in which women had no right to choose their husband or to refuse to marry.  There is also a wealth of rich back story as to how the Prince became cursed and revelations about Beauty’s parentage, which fail to appear in subsequent versions of the now classic fairy tale. 
 



The Becoming

by Jesse Newton

Follow Bryce Cameron as he becomes something that will merge all of history’s timelines and belief structures into an astonishing revelation.

Bryce is three years into the melancholic aftermath of his wife’s tragic death when the dreams begin. They’re becoming more visceral, strapping him into a rollercoaster of sheet-soaked nights when he’s saving presidents or plotting the death of Julius Caesar. They whisk him through watershed moments in mankind’s history, and they’re eerily starting to feel more like memories, as if they really happened.

He stumbles onto a terrifying scene of Little Rock’s finest detective reading someone’s mind, and it shatters his grasp of reality. As more supernatural events stack up, a stunningly beautiful girl named Elin keeps disappearing around the next corner, and soon it’s revealed that she is Bryce’s guide for what’s coming. Not only will she give him his first glimpse of love since losing his wife, but she’s also the cosmic glue that can keep his world from unraveling.

Those dreams were real. He was actually there. And he can do things that humans shouldn’t be able to do.

He’s not God. But he’s pretty damn close.

Two foreigners ride through the Northern Reaches on a secret mission. An unknown cloaked figure wanders the streets of the dark city of Ungstah. What they want no one can be sure, but it all centers around a Downer named Crik.

Crik, too scared to seek freedom, spends his days working in his master’s store, avoiding the spirit-eating Ash Kings, and scavenging food for himself and his best friend, Jak. Until he steals from the wrong person. When Jak is sold to satisfy the debt, Crik burns down his master’s house and is sentenced to death.

To survive, Crik and his friends must leave behind their life of slavery to do what no other Downer has ever done before – escape from the city of Ungstah.
