As a young nursing student, Selene Evans has a bright future ahead of her, but things take a radical turn when a vampire abducts her and forces her to drink his blood. The heightened senses, crazy emotions, and cravings pale in comparison to the drive of her newfound lust.
Not only does she have feelings for her kidnapper, the sire bond also forces her to obey his every command. To their mutual satisfaction, she craves to explore the fine line between pleasure and pain with him, and in the midst of it all, she begins to lose her sense of self.
Could her feelings for him just be a product of the sire bond? Only time spent away from his influence will tell, but there are forces so dark out there, they make her demon look like an angel in disguise.

The first fifteen years of Jean Rayson’s life had passed as ordinary as it gets. She had her issues with her parents, fought her brothers every now and then, and at the end of the day, her biggest concerns were fashion magazines and the junior boys in school.
But shortly after the summer break ends, Jean’s younger brother dies. At first it seems everyone’s managed to hold it together, but when the first crack appears and her parents begin to fall apart, Jean takes on the responsibility of preventing herself, and hopefully her brothers, to follow.
What do you tell yourself in order to get out of bed every morning?
Mathew Rayson has always envied his little sister for her innocence. Seen as the strange bird of the family, Matt has developed a tendency to keep his distance. His mother wasn’t as easy a person–let alone parent–as his father’s second wife, and the contrast between the two homes took its toll on his personality, denying him of becoming a part of the family.
But when his younger brother dies, Mathew starts to see his family in a different light. The shatter of their happiness tilts his previous attitude, and as a strange empathy rises in him, he decides to go out of his way and help them pull through the crisis.

H. P. Lovecraft wrote “The Call of Cthulhu” in 1926, initiating the Cthulhu Mythos, one of the most widely imitated shared-world universes in weird fiction. Even in his lifetime, many other writers added to the Mythos, and after his death hundreds if not thousands of authors of weird, fantasy, and science fiction have added their distinctive elaborations on Lovecraft’s basic themes and ideas.
This volume features some of the best Cthulhu Mythos writing over the past century. Beginning with such rare but classic stories as Mearle Prout’s “The House of the Worm” and Robert Barbour Johnson’s “Far Below,” from the pages of Weird Tales, the anthology moves on to James Wade’s novella “The Deep Ones” and Ramsey Campbell’s refreshing riff on the “forbidden book” motif, “The Franklyn Paragraphs.” Acclaimed stories by T. E. D. Klein, Thomas Ligotti, Neil Gaiman, and W. H. Pugmire are also included.
The book includes an array of original stories by such leading authors of Lovecraftian fiction as Caitlín R. Kiernan, Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Donald Tyson, Cody Goodfellow, and Michael Shea. Gemma Files contributes a richly textured novella, while Jonathan Thomas offers a story full of his distinctive melding of horror and satire.
A Mountain Walked is chock-full of stories old and new that highlight the endless variations that can be played on H. P. Lovecraft’s signature creation.
S. T. Joshi is the leading authority on H. P. Lovecraft. He is the author of I Am Providence: The Life and Times of H. P. Lovecraft and the editor of the Black Wings series of Lovecraftian fiction. He edits the Lovecraft Annual and the Weird Fiction Review.
