Paul Kane's Sleeper(s)
The sleepy English locality of Middletown
is about to get even sleepier, as a strange malady starts to affect the
population. It spreads quickly, causing the authorities to quarantine this
small city, and seek out the only person who might be able to help: Doctor
Andrew Strauss. However, Strauss has a secret, one that has linked him to this
place all his life, one that has linked him to a particular person there,
though he doesn’t yet know who. But he’s not the only one hiding things – and
as he ventures into Middletown to collect samples with an army escort, a
mixture of UK and US troops, cracks soon begin to appear in the operation.
Especially when his team come up against the most terrifying threat humankind
has ever known… From the imagination of the award-winning and bestselling
author of Who’s Been…? and RED (optioned for film and turned into
an award-winning feature script), this chilling reworking of another well-loved
fairy tale reads like a heady mix of The
Andromeda Strain, Inception, Outbreak and Quatermass, and is a tale that’s bound to delight genre fans the

Kevin Lucia's Things Slip Through
Welcome to Clifton Heights, New York. Just another average Adirondack town, and nice enough in its own right.
Except after dark, or under the pale light of the moon. Or in a very private doctor's office at Clifton Heights General Hospital, where no one can hear you scream. Or on a road out of town that never ends, or in an old house sitting on the edge of town with a mind - and will - of its own.
Maybe you shouldn't have left the interstate, my friend. Maybe you should've driven on to the next town.
But you didn't. You saw our sign, turned down our road, figuring on just a short stay. And maybe it will be.
Or maybe you'll never leave.
Anyway, pay a visit to The Skylark Diner. I'll be there. Pull up a chair and let me tell you about our town. It's nice enough, it really is.
Except after dark. Or on cold winter days when no one is around, and you're all alone...
