THE HUNTEDThe idea sounded like such fun to Susan Benning. Camping on the pristine mountains of Idaho with her old high school gang right after their thirty-­year reunion. Even the kids were looking forward to it. But something felt wrong the deeper they traveled into the woods. Something was watching them from behind the thick undergrowth.
Waiting . . .

THE HUNTERS
Their race had lived among the Great Trees in peace for centuries. The "others" came to kill animals with strange weapons and poison their sacred waters with the things they carelessly left behind. But they would soon learn to stay away. The Old Hunger would teach them.
Especially the little ones.

"In The Wood Beyond the World, a sea voyage separates the more fantastic realms from the hero Walter's mundane home town, though the land of the Wood sends visions even there--­of the land's witchy Mistress, her enslaved Maid, and a hideous, savagely energetic dwarf servitor. . . . Walter defies all advice and reason, abandons his fellows, and sets off through mountains and wastes to the Wood where he can meet the mysterious three . . . the stage is set for triangular games of love and power.­" -- David Langford "C.­S. Lewis and J.­R.­R. Tolkien both acknowledged the influence of William Morris.­" -- The Encyclopedia of Fantasy "No mountains in literature are as far away as the distant mountains of Morris.­" -- C.­S. Lewis "With his epochal novels of the 1880s, William Morris established the tradition of the tale set in a completely imaginary world of the author's own invention.­" -- Lin Carter

Author:

World War II commando, Cold War spy, and CIA director under presidents Nixon and Ford, William Egan Colby played a critical role in some of the most pivotal events of the twentieth century. A quintessential member of the greatest generation, Colby embodied the moral and strategic ambiguities of the postwar world, and first confronted many of the dilemmas about power and secrecy that America still grapples with today.

In Shadow Warrior, eminent historian Randall B. Woods presents a riveting biography of Colby, revealing that this crusader for global democracy was also drawn to the darker side of American power. Aiming to help reverse the spread of totalitarianism in Europe and Asia, Colby joined the U.­S. Army in 1941, just as America entered World War II. He served with distinction in France and Norway, and at the end of the war transitioned into America’­s first peacetime intelligence agency: the CIA. Fresh from the fight against fascism, Colby zealously...

“William P. Wood writes with the authenticity of an insider and the sensitivity of a thinking man.­” —Darcy O’Brien, bestselling author of A Dark and Bloody Ground

She looked like everyone’s grandmother: white-­haired, plump, bespectacled, and kindly. Only Dorothea Montalvo Puente’s eyes, black and hard behind her glasses, hinted at the evil that lurked within. She was the rarest of murderers, a female serial killer—probably the most cold-­blooded ever recorded in the annals of crime.
This shocking story of the gruesome murder of seven men for profit comes from bestselling author William P. Wood, the Deputy D.­A. who had earlier prosecuted Puente for drugging and robbing elderly people. He knew intimately the malice that coursed through her veins, and thought he had seen the last of this callous and calculating woman. But her chameleon-­like deviousness helped her reappear as a sweet, benevolent landlord—and later allowed her to escape police custody as they stood in her yard . . .
