It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more -- though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was -- lovely and amazing and deeply flawed -- can she begin to discover her own path in this stunning debut from Ava Dellaira, Love Letters to the Dead.

Laney Landry has been fighting Deads alongside her brother and friends for three years. But she has a secret. She's immune to Dead bites and has to find the right people to trust with the information. Her team rallies around her to find a doctor who can extract a vaccine from Laney which could fight the virus that ended the world. Sean Daniels leads a colony that provides her team with much needed shelter and supplies. He is obviously interested in Laney. The question is whether he's only intrigued by her as a source for the possible vaccine, or for something more. Tests for the cure might push her body beyond what it can endure, and just as she faces a ghost from her past, her longtime teammate Derek Mitchell hints at an interest in more than just her Dead slaying abilities. Two honorable and alluring men -- one colossal decision to make. Despite historically bad taste in men, can she rise above the chaos of the apocalypse and choose the one who deserves her heart? The right choice could mean the difference between surviving...and just living

First published in 1836, Théophile Gautier's 'The Dead Woman in Love' is a supernatural tale, recounting the life of the priest named Romuald who falls in love with the beautiful and enigmatic Clarimonde, who the reader later learns to be a vampire. At the beginning of the tale, Romuald is asked whether he has ever loved and to which he responds, "yes." On the day of his Ordination, when he was a young man, he sees a beautiful woman whose hypnotic voice promises to love him and to make him happier than he would be in heaven. Torn between his amorous attraction to her and his Christian beliefs, he finishes the ceremony despite her appeals. However, he is captured by her beauty and he is taken away from his life as a priest to live in Venice with the alluring vampire, who subsists by drinking his blood while he sleeps.

Sometimes the best letters are the ones that go unanswered It begins as an assignment for English class: write a letter to a dead person - any dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain - he died young, and so did Laurel's sister May - so maybe he'll understand a bit of what Laurel is going through. Soon Laurel is writing letters to lots of dead people - Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Amelia Earhart... it's like she can't stop. And she'd certainly never dream of handing them in to her teacher. She writes about what it's like going to a new high school, meeting new friends, falling in love for the first time - and how her family has shattered since May died. But much as Laurel might find writing the letters cathartic, she can't keep real life out forever. The ghosts of her past won't be contained between the lines of a page, and she will have to come to terms with growing up, the agony of losing a beloved sister, and the realisation that only you can shape your destiny. A lyrical, haunting and stunning debut from the protégé of Stephen Chbosky (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER).

In which an uncast ballot precipitates social embarrassment and recalls a past love, a young housewife finds her kitchen plagued by unabashed canoodling in the flat next door, an aspiring novelist tries to forget near-manslaughter, a schoolgirl discovers the travails of depilation, and, in a locked room, two medieval noblewomen recount the amorous avowals of a young soldier. There’s also the small matter of a dead camel lying unattended on the streets of Delhi. These twelve stories explore the unsaid, the unfinished and the misunderstood, the shocks and nuances of love and sexuality, responsibility and ambition, and our tentative attempts to peel away the layers of stories that make up our lives. “Beautifully precise writing. These stories capture people with such exactitude that you know they must come from a serious student of life. But this is one of those serious books at which you never stop laughing, for Parvati Sharma’s sense of the world is lively, generous and wickedly original.” — Rana Dasgupta, author of Solo Published by Zubaan.

Nuzzled deep in the backwoods of Maine, the town of Loganville has existed in relative peace and quiet since America’s inception. But like every small town, there are secrets that lie buried just beneath the surface—things most people have chosen to forget or ignore. One day, Gwen Sinais hopes, this includes her and her mother—a crazed zealot that most people refer to as the Prophet of Loganville. Gwen has carried her mother’s reputation with her for her entire life. The other kids shun her; their parents give her weird looks, and Gwen wants nothing more than to run away and never see another person again for the rest of her life. That is until, of course, she meets the mysterious boy who hangs out by the graveyard. She may even be attracted to him. But stranger things are happening around town . . . The town seems quieter than normal, except for the odd sounds people have been reporting. Bodies have been disappearing from the cemetery. A meteor has even fallen from the sky. As a steady mist starts to roll into town, and the prophet’s fictions start sounding more and more like fact, the town begins to teeter on the edge of chaos . . . And that’s when the zombies show up . . .
