In a city locked in a kind of perpetual twilight, antiquarian bookseller Cameron Raybould accepts a very strange commission - the valuation of a rare codex. Within its fragile pages Cameron makes a curious discovery. Although seemingly ancient, the codex tells of a modern mystery: an academic missing for eleven years. Stranger still, as finding the truth becomes ever more of an obsession, Cameron begins to notice frightening lapses in memory. As if, all around, words, images, even people are beginning to fade from sight. As if unravelling the riddle of this book may be unravelling the nature of reality itself. And something frightening and unknown is taking its place... A noirish mystery, timely work of unbridled imagination from a startling new voice, Elizabeth Bryer. PRAISE FOR FROM HERE ON, MONSTERS 'A novel that places the reader into the abyss of storytelling. this is more than a book of secrets, codes, geniuses, history and language. It is more than you could imagine.' Tara June Winch 'Traverses the chasm between truth and history, and challenges our faith in the liberatory potential of art. It's a modern Australian novel about modern Australia that, refreshingly, doesn't read at all like a modern Australian novel.' Shaun Prescott 'Elizabeth Bryer writes with compassion and generosity.' Tony Birch 'This strange and wonderful novel delights with its language games, but it also understands that such shenanigans are never just games. Words have an impact on how we understand reality. Words can damage humans of flesh and blood. In From Here On, Monsters, Bryer shows us how language is integral to our humanity.' Saturday Paper

The phrase "here be monsters" or "here be dragons" is commonly believed to have been used on ancient maps to indicate unexplored territories which might hide unknown beasts. This book maps and explores places between science and politics that have been left unexplored, sometimes hiding inplain sight - in an era when increased emphasis was put on "openness". The book is rooted in a programme of research funded by the Leverhulme Trust entitled: "Making Science Public: Challenges and opportunities", which runs from 2014 to 2017. One focus of our research was to critically question theassumption that making science more open and public could solve various issues around scientific credibility, trust, and legitimacy. Chapters in this book explore the risks and benefits of this perspective with relation to transparency, responsibility, experts and faith.

Religion's great and powerful mystery fascinates us, but it also terrifies. So too the monsters that haunt the stories of the Judeo-Christian mythos and earlier traditions: Leviathan, Behemoth, dragons, and other beasts. In this unusual and provocative book, Timothy K. Beal writes about the monsters that lurk in our religious texts, and about how monsters and religion are deeply entwined. Horror and faith are inextricable. Ans as monsters are part of religious texts and traditions, so religion lurks in the modern horror genre, from its birth in Dante's Inferno to the contemporary spookiness of H.P. Lovecraft and the Hellraiser films. Religion and Its Monsters is essential reading for students of religion and popular culture, as well as any readers with an interest in horror.

Detroit – Symbol für den Tod des American Dream. Zwischen Industrieruinen und Kunstprojekten geschieht Grässliches. Menschen werden ermordet und zu «Kunstwerken» arrangiert: ein Junge mit menschlichem Oberkörper und den Beinen eines Rehs. Eine Keramikkünstlerin als grausige Tonskulptur. Detective Gabriella Versado hat schon vieles gesehen, doch so etwas noch nie. Sie ahnt nicht, dass sie es mit einem Monster zu tun hat – mit jemandem, der von dem brutalen Traum besessen ist, die Welt nach seiner Vision neu zu erschaffen. Und der vor nichts zurückschreckt, um diesen Traum wahr werden zu lassen. «Niemals weniger als absolut fesselnd.» (Val McDermid) «Furchterregend und hypnotisch. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen – an Ihrer Stelle würde ich es mir sofort besorgen und lesen!» (Stephen King) «Im Ernst: Was für eine brillante Krimi-Phantasmagorie!!!! Dieser umwerfende Roman ist das neue Standardwerk zum urbanen Verfall. Jetzt lesen!» (James Ellroy) «Im allerbesten Sinne verstörend ... Eine Serienkillergeschichte, wie es sie noch nie gegeben hat.» (Kirkus Review) «Ein durchtrieben fieser Thriller, der wie wenige andere den Leser zum Nachdenken bringt.» (Telegraph) «Ein überragender Roman, voll lebendiger Figuren und fesselnder Dialoge.» (Times UK) «Nie voyeuristisch, nie oberflächlich, nie unkompliziert: Beukes zeigt, dass Horror der einzig mögliche Weg sein kann, unsere Realität begreifbar zu machen.» (The Guardian) «Ein ungewöhnlicher und packender Thriller.» (Sunday Express) «Ein grauenerregender Spannungsroman, der die Opfer in den Mittelpunkt stellt.» (Marie Claire) «Wie ein Ermittlerkrimi auf Halluzinogenen – brutal und hoch unterhaltsam.» (Evening Standard) «Beukes ist eine unwiderstehliche Erzählerin, die starke Figuren erschafft.» (Metro)

From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

Die zehnjährige Karen Reyes führt ein ganz besonderes Tagebuch: Neben ihren Alltagsbeobachtungen zeichnet sie Monster aus Trash-Horrorfilmen und alten Pulp-Magazinen. So bewältigt sie ihren Alltag in den USA der 1960er-Jahre und sammelt Spuren und Hinweise, die zur Aufklärung des Mordes an ihrer Nachbarin Anka Silverberg beitragen sollen. Emil Ferris verarbeitet in Am liebsten mag ich Monster ihre eigene Vorliebe für Horror-B-Movies und Grusel- Groschenhefte und bettet dies in eine Geschichte ein, die die sozialen Spannungen im Chicago der 1960er Jahre mit einer Geschichte des Erwachsenwerdens verknüpft. Fantastisches Artwork! Für den Hugo Award nominiert! Der Überraschungserfolg aus den USA!
