Don Webb A Velvet of Vampyres
220.18

A VELVET OF VAMPYRES: Tales of Horror, by Don Webb. It's a «murder» of crows and a «parliament» of owls. For bats, the genus is «velvet,» and hence also for vampires. We like the older spelling, the one John Polidori gave us when he alerted the world to their presence. They’re here–dominating our dreams, our fears, our media. But what if they aren't boy-band-pretty with diamond sparkly skin? What if they're more dangerous because they’re Desire herself? What if they're behind deep erotic urges AND the desire to write a poem? What if they live in the need to tear open a bright shiny Christams present AND the desire to drink hot red blood burning bright in the night? Seven great tales of the living undead by a Master of the Order of the Vampyre of the Temple of Set. Caveat lector!

Brian Stableford Journey to the Core of Creation
293.81

It is 1847, and Paris is edging closer to its next revolution, but something is also astir inside Mont Dragon in the Ardèche. This is a place of annual pilgrimage for a band of enigmatic nomads, and also a place of interest to the ambitious Bishop of Viviers. In spite of his distaste for travel, Auguste Dupin makes the long southward journey, in the hope that he might be able to help an old friend, the evolutionist Claude Guérande. Guérande believes that he has made discoveries in the caves of Mont Dragon that might cast new light on the origin of humankind, and of life itself. Over the years, however, not everyone who has gone into the caves has come out again, and not everyone who has come out has been unaltered…and 1847 promises to be a critical year, more dangerous than any before it. And when the bizarre flameflower begins to bloom, everything changes! Another great tale in the Auguste Dupin series.

Paul Alexander Casper Beyond Paris
735.64

In Beyond Paris a young traveler is transformed by his odyssey across parts of Europe & Asia
In 1970 traditional paths to success, and the definition of success itself, were questioned. And so young people in their twenties went off to see the world, and in the process find themselves.
In Beyond Paris Paul Casper goes on such a journey. A journey that would change his life forever. A child of the Fifties and Sixties inspired by writers of the Twenties and Thirties, such as Hemingway and Maugham, Paul goes off to work in Paris -and through unimagined circumstances instead he sees an opportunity to become an entrepreneur and takes off to Afghanistan on the Orient Express to buy sought-after newly produced sheepskin coats and bring them back to London and sell them to make a small fortune.
Unforeseen problems develop and he becomes a traveler, seeing over 20 something countries in the next six months. Sometimes through freezing high mountain passes or sometimes through over 100 degree desolate roads traveling in a variety of ways and most without costing him anything, Casper goes through little by little a complete transformation from the people, adventures and mysteries he encounters along the way. Despite lack of finances and daily struggles with hunger, weather and transportation – including run-ins with Communist border guards, chased by police and also actually jailed in some countries, unusual drugs and unforgettable women, and run-ins with trains, caves, strange islands, a major rock band and a dog that just might be a witch – his openness to all that is new and trust in «an ethereal heavenly angel companion» make this a journey of hope and confidence in the future.
Beyond Paris is a tale of its time, a moment when innocence and uncertainty begin to fade, to be replaced with purpose and direction. Unfortunately Paul's journey ends with not enough money to get back home.
