In case you missed any of it, here's what happened in the Ruins this week . . .

Waiting On Wednesday with Saint's Blood by Sebastien de Castell

A Fresh Take on Superpowers guest post by Cy Wyss


Stacking The Shelves and Mailbox Monday are a pair of weekly memes that are about sharing the books that came your way over the past week, and which you've added to your shelves - whether they be physical or virtual, borrowed or bought, or for pleasure or review.


Reversion: The Inevitable Horror by J. Thorn
Published September 12th 2012
With a noose around his neck, Samuel arrives in a forest littered with caution tape and artifacts of the deceased. He struggles to regain his memory while fending off a pack of wolves and the mysterious visitors who seem to know more about this dying world than he does. Major, Kole, and Mara, new companions also trapped in the strange locality, realize they must outrun the ominous cloud eating away at reality. As their world collapses upon itself, Samuel must find a way to escape the Reversion.

The Girl in the Glyphs by David Edmonds &  Maria Nieves Edmonds
Published January 5th 2016 by Peace Corps Writers
THE GIRL IN THE GLYPHS is a powerful archaeological thriller that takes the reader from the Smithsonian Museum to Nicaraguan jungles and on into the darkness of a mysterious cave. It's also a magical exploration of the power of love!


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is another weekly meme, this time focused on what books are spending the most time in your hands and in your head, as opposed to what's been added to your shelf.

The Passenger: A Novel by F.R. Tallis
1941. A German submarine, U-471 goes rogue, and a series of shocking, brutal events occur. In the aftermath, disturbing things start happening on the boat. It seems that a lethal, supernatural force is stalking the crew, wrestling with Lorenz for control. A thousand feet under the dark, icy waves, it doesn't matter how loud you scream...

Interior Darkness: Selected Stories by Peter Straub
Peter Straub has spent forty years at the forefront of modern literary horror. The stories assembled here represent his astonishing range and his ability to terrify, transport, and hold a reader hostage. Each story cracks the foundation of our reality and opens our eyes, taking us further and further into the darkness that normally remains deeply, and safely, hidden. Interior Darkness is the gold standard of literary horror. 

Miasma by Greg Cox
Star Trek continues its fiftieth anniversary celebration in 2016 with an all-new enovella from New York Times bestselling author Greg Cox, set in the popular and blockbuster Original Series era!
