The Jewel of Seven Stars

Masters of Fantasy: Book 1

Bram Stoker

The most complete version ever published.

An Egyptologist, attempting to raise from the dead the mummy of Tera, an ancient Egyptian queen, finds a fabulous gem and is stricken senseless by an unknown force. Amid bloody and eerie scenes, his daughter is possessed by Tera's soul, and her fate depends upon bringing Tera's mummified body to life.

When The Jewel of Seven Stars was first released in 1903 the publishers received a great deal of criticism from both critics and readers because of its gruesome ending. Shortly before his death in 1912 when Stoker attempted to republish the book he was told that he would have to change the ending if he didn't want it to go out of publication. As a result, Stoker removed Chapter XVI "Powers - Old and New" and gave the book a new and happier ending. For many years the original ending was unavailable to most readers. Now, for the first time ever, we have included the endings from the first and second editions in this volume.

Clifford D. Simak: A Primary and Secondary Bibliography

Masters of Science Fiction and Fantasy: Book 2

Muriel R. Becker
Clifford D. Simak

Clifford D. Simak (1904-88) was a prolific science-fiction/fantasy author and, in addition, an editor for the Minneapolis Star and Tribune Newspapers for over 36 years.

This informative bibliography is an extremely helpful tool for students, researchers and the curious admires of his many highly regarded novels and stories.

An informative introduction and an interview with the author add greatly to the detailed listings of Simak's published works.

When asked by Muriel Becker which of his stories pleased him more that others, Simak answered "A Choice of Gods" - his 1971 fictional rumination of the future of mankind.

Unfettered II: New Tales by Masters of Fantasy

Unfettered: Book 2

Shawn Speakman

Life can kick us when we are down.

In Shawn Speakman's case, he is fighting back.

Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2011, Speakman beat the disease as well as the massive medical debt he amassed from its treatment. He did this by publishing Unfettered, an anthology featuring short stories donated by some of the best science fiction and fantasy writers working today.

The fight will not stop there. In an effort to pay forward the aid he received--and to memorialize his mother who passed away from stomach cancer in early 2016--Speakman has again collaborated with celebrated genre authors to publish Unfettered II. All proceeds from the anthology will either help eliminate medical debt for other authors or be donated to cancer research hubs around the world.

Twenty original new tales comprise this amazing collection and, as the title suggests, the writers were again free to contribute whatever they wished.
