Five hundred years ago Henry VIII had a fearsome temper and bloodthirsty reputation to match; more beast than human, some might say. . . Henry the Eighth was the bloodiest king ever to have sat on the throne of England. This fast-paced, exciting, inventive, and just plain bloody retelling of his reign will bring to light the real man behind the myth. Be dragged back kicking and screaming five hundred years into Tudor England . . . Past praise for A. E. Moorat: “Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter is vast fun. It’s a freewheeling account of great Britain under siege by succubi, zombies and various other of Lucifer minions, all nicely turned out in frock coats and crinolines. Moorat crowds so many characters—historical, fictional, supernatural—onto his Victorian stage that the effect is that of a lost Gilbert and Sullivan operetta written under the influence of opium, absinthe and black pudding.“—Washington Post “Moorat infuses his tale with enough bravura and over-the-top action to lift it above a horde of similar projects; readers able to stomach the deliriously bloody goings-on will find plenty to enjoy.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review and “Pick of the Week” “Dab, gory, inventive and fun.”—The Bookseller [London] “Wildly entertaining. Moorat’s story rises above mere gimmick thanks to hearty amounts of English history, all given supernatural twists.”—The Los Angeles Times

Evil, death, demons, reanimation, and resurrection. While such topics are often reserved for the darker mindscapes of the vampire subgenre within popular culture, they are equally integral elements of religious history and belief. Despite the cultural shift of presenting vampires in a secular light, the traditional figure of the vampire within cinema and literature has a rich legacy of serving as a theological marker. Whether as a symbol of the allure of sin, as an apologetic for assorted religious icons, or as a gateway into a discussion of liberationist theology, the vampire has served as a spiritual touchstone from Bram Stoker's Dracula, to Stephen King's Salem's Lot, to the HBO television series True Blood. In Such a Dark Thing, Jess Peacock examines how the figure of the vampire is able to traverse and interconnect theology and academia within the larger popular culture in a compelling and engaging manner. The vampire straddles the ineffable chasm between life and death and speaks to the transcendent in all of us, tapping into our fundamental curiosity of what, if anything, exists beyond the mortal coil, giving us a glimpse into the interminable while maintaining a cultural currency that is never dead and buried.

Excerpt: A Tale of a Tub was the first major work written by Jonathan Swift, composed between 1694 and 1697 and published in 1704. It is arguably his most difficult satire, and perhaps his most masterly. The Tale is a prose parody which is divided into sections of "digression" and a "tale" of three brothers, each representing one of the main branches of western Christianity. The "tale" presents a consistent satire of religious excess, while the digressions are a series of parodies of contemporary writing in literature, politics, theology, Biblical exegesis, and medicine. The overarching parody is of enthusiasm, pride, and credulity. At the time it was written, politics and religion were still linked very closely in England, and the religious and political aspects of the satire can often hardly be separated. "The work made Swift notorious, and was widely misunderstood, especially by Queen Anne herself who mistook its purpose for profanity." "It effectively disbarred its author from proper preferment within the church," but is cons...

Maeve Devereux, the ornament of opera houses from New York to St. Petersburg, is brilliant onstage, beautiful in person, and generous to a fault. But inside the diva is the seventeen-year-old who helped stage a prison breakout at seventeen during the Boer War, escaped to Europe with her mother and the mysterious Sean Farrell, and transformed herself from country girl to music hall star to diva. Not to be outdone by her lovely daughter, Maeve's gorgeous mother, Moira, starts her own career as a collector of men's hearts and a popular guest at country house weekends and Parisian evenings. Moira's marriage to the American millionaire Charlie Lassiter foreshadows Maeve's to Baron Dietrich von Reuter, the young German who loves her with ruthless devotion. As Europe parties on the eve of World War One, scandals shake society, war breaks out in the Balkans, Moira's past comes back to hurt her, Dietrich shatters under the strain of bankruptcy, and Sean Farrell proves to be the one man Maeve can rely on come scandal, heartbreak, or war. From Parisian dalliances to Balkan intrigues, Maeve's story is a tale of glittering pre-war Europe teetering on the edge of the volcano. PRAISE: "The backdrops are voluptuous, the villains dastardly, the beauties full of fire...an entertaining saga...with a winning heart." —Publishers Weekly

The final entry in award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason's International Bestselling Gardella Vampire Hunter Series. "Vampires have met their match with Victoria Gardella,"* but now the huntress faces an even greater evil as London is besieged by malevolent entities no mortal was ever meant to encounter... Directly descended from the very first vampire hunter in the Gardella family, Victoria knows she must continue the lineage so humanity will have protectors against the undead. While Sebastian Vioget appears to both the perfect warrior and lover to ensure the Gardella Legacy, Victoria cannot forget Max Pesaro--the former slayer still haunted by the vampire queen Lilith's obsession with him. But it is Lilith's obsession that may save all of humanity. Demons, enemies of both mortals and the undead, have found their way to earth. To defeat them, vampires and slayers must fight side by side. But Lilith wants Max in return for her cooperation--a small price for the world, but too high a price for Victoria.
