Hearne, Kevin  
Iron Druid #6: Hunted
Signed by the author on the title page. Plus novella 'Two Ravens and One Crow'. Dodging the slings and arrows of not one but two goddesses of the hunt, Atticus, Granuaile, and wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha De Danann. The usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so the game plan is to run like hell. Crashing the marathon is the Norse god Loki; killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the huntresses and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living - and still have a world to live in.

Dire Earth #1: The Darwin Elevator
23rd century: The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planet's refugees flock to Darwin, Australia, where a space elevator - created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Builders - emits a plague-suppressing aura. Skyler Luiken has a rare immunity to the plague. Backed by an international crew of fellow immunes, he leads missions into the dangerous wasteland beyond the aura's edge to find the resources Darwin needs to stave off collapse. But when the Elevator starts to malfunction, Skyler is tapped, along with brilliant scientist Dr. Tania Sharma, to solve the mystery of the failing alien technology and save the ragged remnants of humanity.
