Connolly, Harry  
Twenty Palaces Prequel: Twenty Palaces
When Ray was thirteen, a handgun accident landed his best friend Jon in a wheelchair, and turned Ray into a runaway and petty criminal. Fifteen years later, Ray returns home, determined to go straight and make peace with his old friend. But Jon has received a mysterious cure - not only is he out of his wheelchair, he seems stronger and faster than pretty much anyone. The cure has drawn attention: the media are camped out, the police are investigating for insurance fraud, and weird, shadowy figures have begun to draw closer. Can Ray atone by protecting his friend? And what terrible price will the world have to pay if he succeeds?

MHI #5: Monster Hunter Nemesis
Signed by the author on the title page. Agent Franks of the US Monster Control Bureau is close to seven feet tall, nearly indestructible, animated by an alchemical substance, and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity. Good thing a founding father had Franks swear to serve and protect the US from all monsters. Franks agreed, with one condition: the government must never make more like him, or the agreement is null and void. Now, with the director of the agency making thirteen, all bets are off. And Hell hath no fury like a monster betrayed.

Rise of the Spider Goddess
Before Jig the goblin, before fairy tale princesses and magic librarians and fire-spiders, there was Nakor the Purple, an elf who wanted nothing more than to stand around watching lovingly overdescribed sunrises with his pet owl Flame (who might actually be a falcon, depending on which chapter you're reading) in this tale, written in 1995 and never before shared with the world (for reasons that will soon be painfully clear). Together with an angsty vampire, a pair of pixies, and a feisty young thief, Nakor must find a way to stop an Ancient Evil before she destroys the world. With more than 5000 words of bonus annotation and smart-ass commentary by the author, this is a book that proves every author had to start somewhere - and most of the time, that place wasn't very pretty.
