David Morrell is best known for his acclaimed thrillers, including The Brotherhood of the Rose, Creepers, Murder as a Fine Art, and his debut novel, First Blood, in which Rambo first appeared. But Morrell is also a master of nonfiction. Twenty of his essays about iconic writers, actors, and singers are collected in Stars in My Eyes: My Love Affair with Books, Movies, and Music. Morrell describes how at the age of 17 he was fired from working on a construction project and walked home in despair, only to turn on the television and see Rod Serling’s Patterns, which gave him a life-long lesson about story construction. He tells how Stirling Silliphant’s scripts for the classic TV series Route 66 prompted him to write to Silliphant for advice about becoming a writer. Silliphant replied with a two-page single-spaced letter that Morrell looks at every day. (Silliphant and Morrell eventually became friends and worked together on the NBC miniseries of Morrell’s, The Brotherhood of the Rose.) The essays in this captivating book range from Henry James’s ghost stories to Steve McQueen’s abusive personality to Bobby Darin’s tragic last days. Did you know that John Wayne was a master chess player or that Frank Sinatra had permanent facial scars or that when Marilyn Monroe was married to Joe DiMaggio, there was a reason apart from baseball for him to be called “the slugger”? Ever heard of Richard Harding Davis? In his day he was the most famous author in America. His adventures provided a model upon which Stephen Crane, Jack London, and Ernest Hemingway built their personas. Alfred Hitchcock, Richard Matheson, Wilkie Collins, John D. Macdonald’s Travis McGee: these are some of the other fascinating figures that Morrell profiles in this mesmerizing collection that’s as compelling as it is revealing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Vietor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/053624/bk_adbl_053624_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

This early work by William J. Wintle was originally published in 1921 and we are now republishing it as part of our Cryptofiction Classics series. 'The Voice in the Night' is a short story about a mysterious presence that materialises after dark. Wintle started writing in his thirties, and during the early part of the 20th century produced two much-circulated essays: 'Life in Our New Century' (1901) and 'Can You Explain It? True Stories of the Ghost World' (1903). Later, he turned to fiction, producing a number of well-remembered stories, including 'The Red Rosary', 'When the Twilight Fell', 'The House on the Cliff', 'The Ghost at the Blue Dragon', 'The Spectre Spiders', 'The Footsteps on the Stairs', 'The Chamber of Doom', 'When Time Stood Still', and 'The Black Cat'. These and others were collected in a 1921 collection entitled Ghost Gleams. Wintle died in 1934, aged 73. The Cryptofiction Classics series contains a collection of wonderful stories from some of the greatest authors in the genre, including Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London. From its roots in cryptozoology, this genre features bizarre, fantastical, and often terrifying tales of mythical and legendary creatures. Whether it be giant spiders, werewolves, lake monsters, or dinosaurs, the Cryptofiction Classics series offers a fantastic introduction to the world of weird creatures in fiction.
