The Devil’s Work

Wesley Black is an infamous cannibalistic serial killer. When finally caught and convicted, he was sentenced to consecutive life sentences in the world’s most remote prison, Outpost 86. Outpost 86 is in Antarctica and is so remote it requires no guards. The prison relies on engineering and its extreme isolation for prisoner control. Wesley hasn’t changed his ways during his incarceration, and the prison’s massive size and five levels allows him to conduct his business in relative secrecy, but this time something is different and Wesley dies and goes to hell to face his fate…for the first time. It seems the devil’s work is never finished.

HTTP Error 502

Synopsis: Jason is pursued by a mysterious man dressed in black who hands him a slip of paper and leaves without a word. What is written on that paper changes Jason’s life forever and plunges him on a journey to another dimension where strange creatures capture and imprison him. Surrounded by surreal monsters chained to the walls, he fights to understand what has happened to him. That understanding is beyond his comprehension and soon the prisoners are collected from the dark dungeon and led to their fate, but it is not what, or where, Jason would have ever imagined.

Publishers Weekly Ignores The Real Scandal At LA Times Festival of Books

David Gaughran

PWLATimesPublishers Weekly whipped up a storm on Wednesday with news of a deal between Amazon and the LA Times Festival of Books , resulting in calls for the publishing community to boycott the event. But Publishers Weekly is ignoring the real scandal.

Amazon isn’t listed as a sponsor or scheduled to appear. The “deal” in question pertains to the LA Times Festival of Books signing up as an Amazon affiliate so they can earn a percentage from sales made through their website. Mary Williams, of Skylight Books in Los Angeles, complained that sales will be “siphoned away” by Amazon.

I’m not so sure that charge sticks. Either someone at the event buys the book in front of them or they don’t. I can’t see how the festival website being an Amazon affiliate changes that. If readers are going to spot a book, then check the price on Amazon (or wherever)…
