Devil's Mountain

by Bernadette Walsh

Copyright 2012, Bernadette WalshAll rights reserved - Lyrical Pres, Inc. I pulled the long red cape close to me. Its ancient wool protected me from the strong damp wind that whipped along the fields. In the distance I could hear the mournful lowing of Seamus's brown heifers. A black rook flew before me, beckoning me along the lonesome lane. I turned right into the copse of trees and followed the narrow path. The thicket blocked all but a trickle of light. The dark woods that had frightened me as a young girl enveloped me, embraced me now in its cold arms. In the clearing before the foot of His cave was a fire and beside it, a carved table. On the table was a roast pig and two goblets filled with an amber liquid. Behind me a rush of wind lifted my cloak. "My love. "I turned around. Slanaitheoir took my hand in His strong one. The blood roared in my ears. This apparition, Slanaitheoir's most beautiful, most cruel. He stood over six feet, His broad shoulders draped in a golden silk tunic. His bright green eyes danced with desire and malice. Despite myself, my cheeks burned. I lowered my eyes, suddenly shy, unable to face Him. "My lord. ""Come, my love. See what I have prepared for you. "He led me to the fire and removed the cloak from my shoulders. I covered my chest, aware that my thin silk sheath offered little protection from His probing gaze. He laughed. "You hide yourself from me? My sweet child. Please, sit down. Eat. I know you haven't feasted in many days. "How? How did He know my every move? With my stomach in knots since I'd left for New York, I hadn't eaten more than tea and toast for days. Suddenly ravenous, I devoured the meal before me. The meat, succulent, almost called to me. Its sweet juices ran down my chin, and I, like an animal, tore the pig's flesh. His lordship joined me as we cleared the table of meat and mead. When we were sated, He led me to the fire. We sat on the finest furs. "My love, I've missed you. Tell me, tell me about your trip. " His eyes, soft now and tender, glowed in the firelight. His fingers burned my skin as He stroked my hand. And I told Him. Everything. How Nellie called me a witch, how my sweet Paul held me in his arms and cried. The beautiful creature before me entranced me, bewitched me, and I burned with love for Him. With desire. "My love, why do you leave, when you know the world will only cause you pain? I am all you need. "The buzzing in my ears grew louder, and all I could think about was His strong arms. His musky scent--old, as old as the earth. Why do I leave Him? Why do I fight Him? I fell into His eyes and could see our past, the past of all the Devlin women. My skin was on fire and I didn't stop Him when he ripped the thin sheath from me, scattering the pearl buttons on the ground. He parted my lips and I yielded. I closed my eyes. I loved Him. Oh, God forgive me, how I loved Him. He pulled my hair and His lips left mine. I heard before I felt the tear of my cheek's tender flesh. I opened my eyes and could see His hand was now a claw. Warm blood fell onto my breast. He dragged me to the entrance of the cave. He smiled. "It is time, my love. "

The Devils of D-Day

by Graham Masterton

One of the tanks remains on the outskirts of town--its hatch mysteriously sealed, trapping its controller inside--only to be discovered by American surveyor and cartographer Dan McCook. Driven by curiosity and an inexplicable compulsion, McCook is about to do the unthinkable and release what lives within the tank upon an unsuspecting world. And once the monstrous occupant reunites with others of its demonic kind, a new world war will begin, one that threatens to wash the earth in blood and drag every man, woman, and child through the fiery gates of hell.

Excerpt: . . . Thats the way these fellows who dont know any better chuck their money about," he added, swinging around in his chair towards her. "The clothes I have on cost me exactly four pounds fifteen cash, and I guarantee his were no better. " Catherine frowned impatiently. "We did not come here, did we, Mr. Fenn, to discuss Mr. Ordens tailors bill? I can see no object at all in going through his correspondence in this way. What you have to search for is a packet wrapped up in thin yellow oilskin, with Number 17 on the outside in black ink. " "Oh, he might have slipped it in anywhere," Fenn pointed out. "Besides, theres always a chance that one of his letters may give us a clue as to where he has hidden the document. Come and sit down by the side of me, wont you, Miss Abbeway? Do " "I would rather stand, thank you," she replied. "You seem to find your present occupation to your taste. I should loathe it " "Never think of my own feelings," Fenn said briskly, "when theres a job to be done. I wish youd be a bit more friendly, though, Miss Abbeway.

You know, Ive been a bachelor for a good many years," he went on impressively, "but a little homey place like this always makes me think of things.

The Devil's Playground: A Century of Pleasure and Profit in Times Square

by James Traub

As Times Square turns 100, New York Times Magazine contributing writer James Traub tells the story of how this mercurial district became one of the most famous and exciting places in the world. The Devil's Playground is classic and colorful American history, from the first years of the twentieth century through the Runyonesque heyday of nightclubs and theaters in the 1920s and '30s, to the district's decline in the 1960s and its glittering corporate revival in the 1990s. First, Traub gives us the great impresarios, wits, tunesmiths, newspaper columnists, and nocturnal creatures who shaped Times Square over the century since the place first got its name: Oscar Hammerstein, Florenz Ziegfeld, George S. Kaufman, Damon Runyon, Walter Winchell, and "the Queen of the Nightclubs," Texas Guinan; bards like A. J. Liebling, Joe Mitchell, and the Beats, who celebrated the drug dealers and pimps of 42nd Street. He describes Times Square's notorious collapse into pathology and the fierce debates over how best to restore it to life. Traub then goes on to scrutinize today's Times Square as no author has yet done. He writes about the new 42nd Street, the giant Toys "R" Us store with its flashing Ferris wheel, the new world of corporate theater, and the sex shops trying to leave their history behind. More than sixty years ago, Liebling called Times Square "the heart of the world"--not just the center of the world, though this crossroads in Midtown Manhattan was indeed that, but its heart. From the dawn of the twentieth century through the 1950s, Times Square was the whirling dynamo of American popular culture and, increasingly, an urban sanctuary for the eccentric and the untamed. The name itself became emblematic of the tremendous life force of cities everywhere. Today, Times Square is once again an awe-inspiring place, but the dark and strange corners have been filled with blazing light. The most famous street character on Broadway, "the Naked Cowboy," has his own website, and Toys "R" Us calls its flagship store in Times Square "the toy center of the universe." For the giant entertainment corporations that have moved to this safe, clean, and self-consciously gaudy spot, Times Square is still very much the center of the world. But is it still the heart?
