Cold CityThe Toughest Part of Writing Cold City

By F. Paul Wilson

That would be researching Manhattan in 1990.

Why 1990? Because that’s the year a twenty-one-year old who will go on to become an urban mercenary known as Repairman Jack arrives in New York. Cold City is the first of a trilogy that will chronicle his early years there.



Rise of Ransom CityA Letter from Harry Ransom

By Felix Gilman

[We are pleased to announce that the writings of the famous Harry Ransom – some might say notorious – have now been collected and published as The Rise of Ransom City. This letter was found too late to be included. Besides, the fellow who says he found it was asking too much money for it, and for all we know it is a forgery. The handwriting is atrocious. – The Editors.]



RenegadeCrying Bully

By J. A. Souders

“I know you are, but what am I?” Chances are you’ve heard this once or twice in your lifetime. This may be a simple child’s joke, but it’s no joke when it comes to bullying.




Eve of DarknessWhat if? Two little words that created the world of S. J. Day’s Eve of Darkness

By Sylvia Day

In January, Tor will rerelease #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day’s Marked series, first published in 2009 under the name S.J. Day. Here, the author asks the “What ifs?” in this sexy urban fantasy series.
