HORROR



Deja Noir           by Dallas Janst                     Copyright © 2012 by Dallas Janst

Hawk Menzies is new to Sallimont High, but not new to trouble. It had plagued him when he was at Eastern, then Jefferson, and now Sallimont.

A reclusive Goth girl, Claire Henderson, is the first to befriend the seemingly equally reclusive figure.

Her poetry is dark, and reminds Hawk of his own mother's poetry which he kept with him after her death in the sanitarium. He never really believed she killed herself - like they claimed - and he is certain the poetry will offer some clue to what really happened.

JUVENILE



Swords and Saucery: the Epic Fantasy Chef           by Dallas Janst                     Copyright © 2012 by Dallas Janst

Penelope was captured by a dragon. The only way she has been able to keep herself alive, as well as her fellows, is by cooking for the dragon.

She has learned his temperament and knows when she can be rude to him and when to keep her mouth shut. And since she is saving the town by working for the monster, she has gained a degree of notoriety.

When her dragon is invited to a conference of the scaly beasts, she suspects a trap but he ignores her, wanting so much to see more of his kind again. There are so few around these days.

He brings her along so he can eat in style - mainly to show off his little pet, she assumes - and it is a good thing he does as she is the only thing that can save him.

Dark Princess           by Dallas Janst                     Copyright © 2012 by Dallas Janst

Mick Drummond has been having nightmares about a girl. He sees a picture in a history book that looks just like the girl and he thinks that her ghost is somehow trying to communicate with him.

Then along comes Angela Wilson, a new kid at his school who is the spitting image of the long dead princess, except that she is black.

After getting over the initial idea that he was somehow taunting her - a defensive trait that got her into trouble at her former school - she decides to help him try and figure out what his crazy dreams could mean.

It turns out it is not so much a message for him, but a warning for her.
