New Releases 8/26

Some of the titles hitting shelves this Tuesday include:

The Black Tower by Louis Bayard - an historical mystery featuring Vidocq, the father of the plain clothes detectives division in France and one of the first PIs and officers to use criminalistics and ballistics in his investigations. Half truth and half fiction, all fun.

Brides of the Impaler by Edward Lee - hardcore horror that plays on the classic legend of Dracula/Vlad Dracul

Covenant by John Everson - 2004 Stoker winner is available in paperback for the first time

Razor Girl by Marianne Mancusi - another great SHOMI title. Combination post apocalyptic/light cyper-punk/action adventure romance. Love it!

Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs - latest in the Tempe Brennan forensic anthropology series and on my "to buy immediately" list!

Promenade of the Gods by Koji Suzuki - dubbed the Japanese Stephen King, latest from the author of Ring.

First to Kill by Andrew Peterson - debut thriller on my TBR list

New on DVD:
Son Of Rambow - no this is not a cheesy kids movie but a UK comedy that looks like great fun
Heroes Season 2
