Bookish and the Beast

By Ashley Poston

In this third book of the Once Upon a Con series, we meet Rosie
Thorne—a young woman feeling stuck. She’s stuck on her college
application essays, stuck in her small town, and stuck on that mysterious
General Sond cosplayer she met back at ExcelsiCon. But most of
all, she’s stuck in her grief over her mother’s death. Her only solace
was her late mother’s library of rare Starfield novels, but even that
disappeared when she and her dad sold it to pay off hospital bills.

Then there’s Vance Reigns—he’s been Hollywood royalty for as long

as he can remember, with all the privilege and scrutiny that entails.
Vance’s world comes crashing down when a tabloid scandal catches
up to him and he’s forced to hide out somewhere the paparazzi would
never think to look: Small Town USA. At least the house he’s stuck
in has a library. Too bad he doesn’t read.

When their paths collide and a rare book is destroyed, Rosie must
work to repay the debt. But while most superfans would jump at
the chance to be anywhere near Starfield’s handsome hunk, Rosie
would rather be anywhere but. Vance is a jerk, she can’t stand him,
and the feeling is mutual.

But as this pair of opposites begrudgingly gets closer and their careful
masks come off, they may just find there’s more risk in shutting each
other out than in opening up their hearts.

ASHLEY POSTON loves dread pirates, moving

castles, and starry night skies. When not geeking
out at comic-cons, she lives in South Carolina with
her cat named Pepper. She is the author of the
Heart of Iron duology (Harper) as well as the Once

The Ultimate Evil
The Search for The Sons of Sam

by Maury Terry

On August 10, 1977, the NYPD arrested David Berkowitz for the
Son of Sam murders that had terrorized New York City for over a
year. Berkowitz confessed to shooting sixteen people and killing six
with a .44 caliber Bulldog revolver, and the case was officially closed.

Journalist Maury Terry was suspicious of Berkowitz’s confession.

Spurred by conflicting witness descriptions of the killer and clues
overlooked in the investigation, Terry was convinced Berkowitz
didn’t act alone. Meticulously gathering evidence for a decade, he
released his findings in the first edition of The Ultimate Evil. Based
upon the evidence he had uncovered, Terry theorized that the Son
of Sam attacks were masterminded by a Yonkers-based cult that
was responsible for other ritual murders across the country. After
Terry’s death in 2015, documentary filmmaker Josh Zeman (Cropsey,
The Killing Season, Murder Mountain) was given access to Terry’s files,
which form the basis of his docuseries with Netflix and a companion
podcast. Taken together with The Ultimate Evil, which includes a new
introduction by Zeman, these works reveal the stunning intersections
of power, wealth, privilege, and evil in America—from the Summer
of Sam until today.

MAURY TERRY was an award-winning investigative reporter whose

work was prominently featured in both television and print media.
He wrote for the Gannett newspaper chain, Vanity Fair, Gear, and
Penthouse, among others. He reported on and coproduced nearly a
dozen national TV specials about the Son of Sam conspiracy. Terry
died in Yonkers, New York, in 2015.
The true-crime cult classic
JOSHUA ZEMAN has been at the forefront of the true crime genre
for the past decade. He is the director of the critically acclaimed that inspired the Netflix
film Cropsey, the docuseries The Killing Season, and Murder Mountain. docuseries The Sons of Sam
and a companion podcast,
The Ultimate Evil follows
journalist Maury Terry’s
terrifying investigation into
the terrifying truth behind
the Son of Sam murders.

The Southern Book
Club’s Guide to
Slaying Vampires
By Grady Hendrix

Patricia Campbell’s life has never felt smaller. Her husband is a

workaholic, her teenage kids have their own lives, her senile mother-
in-law needs constant care, and she’s always a step behind on her
endless to-do list. The only thing keeping her sane is her book club,
a close-knit group of Charleston women united by their love of true
crime. At their meetings they’re as likely to talk about the Manson
family as they are about their own families.

One evening after book club, Patricia is viciously attacked by an

elderly neighbor, bringing the woman’s handsome nephew, James
Harris, into her life. James is well traveled and well read, and he
makes Patricia feel things she hasn’t felt in years. But when children
on the other side of town go missing, their deaths written off by
local police, Patricia has reason to believe James Harris is more of
a Bundy than a Brad Pitt. The real problem? James is a monster of
a different kind—and Patricia has already invited him in.

Little by little, James will insinuate himself into Patricia’s life and try
to take everything she once took for granted—including the book
club—but she won’t surrender without a fight in this blood-soaked
tale of neighborly kindness gone wrong.

GRADY HENDRIX is a novelist and screenwriter

based in New York City. He is the author of Horrorstör,
My Best Friend’s Exorcism, Paperbacks from Hell, and New York Times Best Seller
We Sold Our Souls, all of which received critical praise
from such respected outlets as NPR, the Washington B&N Top Fiction of the Year

It’s Your Funeral
Plan the Celebration of a Lifetime—
Before It’s Too Late

by Kathy Benjamin

For most of us, our own funeral is an afterthought or, even worse, an
anti-thought—something we avoid thinking about altogether. This
book will change that negative thinking forever! After all, planning
one’s funeral is an act of love and an important part of good mental
health. Now readers can make sure their sendoff is exactly what
they want it to be, whether a somber reflection on who they were, a
drunken bacchanal for a life well lived, or a peaceful adieu to their
earthly existence.

The decisions are myriad and the pitfalls many, so this practical
yet cheeky guide offers a plethora of advice and inspiration, from
budgeting for the big day to selecting a burial outfit to choosing a
memorial theme. Morbid and pragmatic questions alike are an-
swered, including:

• What is the most eco-friendly burial method?

• Should I write my own obituary?
• Do I really need a will?
• Can my body be shot into space after I die?
• What can be cremated with me?
• And, perhaps most important, how do I COVER TO BE REVEALED
avoid being buried alive?

It’s Your Funeral presents every stage of the legacy planning process—
both material and digital—to ensure that one’s wishes are recorded
for posterity before venturing to the Great Beyond. So get ready to
