are you afraid?
you are invited …
Four of our favorite authors — Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt and Alton Gansky — have teamed up and written a new supernatural thriller full of suspense, and the beginning of a new series! Invitation is cycle one of the Harbringers series and can be found on our shelves at F Mye.
When author Bill Myers was asked if he could explain the concept for this new [Harbringers] series, he answered:
“I (Bill Myers) originally came up with the idea: What if several authors wrote a series of linked novellas that would read like episodes of a TV series? From there, we decided to give each author a unique character. Each novella is from the first-person POV of one of the Harbinger team members as they stumble into supernatural adventures and investigations.”

- In The Call by Bill Myers, four strangers are drawn together to help a student at the mysterious Institute for Advanced Psychic Studies. His gifts are supposedly being honed to assist world leaders … but there are some very disturbing strings attached.
- Frank Peretti’s The Haunted confronts a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering around a mysterious house.
- In Angela Hunt’s The Sentinels, animals around the world are mysteriously dying. What could it mean? When the tragedy begins to touch Andi’s dreams, she discovers a terrifying theory.
- The Girl by Alton Gansky is a gripping tale of a young barefoot girl found holding a scroll in the snowy Oregon mountains. She is sweet, innocent — apparently not of this world — and something wants to kill her.

Couldn’t get enough of Billy Coffey?
He’s at it again with his newest creation, The Curse of Crow Hollow!
This book hops out of here regularly, so come and check it out as soon as you can! Not convinced? Last year another book of his, The Devil Walks in Mattingly, was the most borrowed book of 2015!
“… recalls Flannery O’Connor with its glimpses of the grotesque and the supernatural. The story unwinds slowly and with a convincing voice that draws the reader deep into the unexplainable.”

Summary: Twenty-two-year-old Donny Elton sat in his bedroom as he did every morning, writing line upon line of unintelligible computer code from his wheelchair. The helpless savant had never spoken more than a few words at a time, so Stanley Elton, Donny’s father, was shocked to hear a voice from his son’s room: “Shadow, shadow on my left; shadow, shadow on my right …” That was the day the lights went out. A gripping story of darkness and heroism set in our not-too-distant future.
