Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner

by Lisa Wingate

"We saw it all," said Loveland resident Alva Blum. "That dog led them on a chase all through the pasture, and when he stopped, he stopped right under the Lover's Oak. When we drove down to check on things, there was Zach Truitt and this lady from the FBI together under the oak, wrapped around each other like lizards on a beanpole." According to Mrs. Blum, local residents knew immediately that true love was in the works. None of this surprises the dog's owner, who, it turns out, is Mrs. Jada Bell of Lometa. According to Mrs. Bell, the dog, whose name is actually Noel, takes a notion every once in a while to leave the sheep and the other sheepdogs and go on a mission. "It's my fault, I suppose," said Mrs. Bell. "Those dogs aren't supposed to be pets, but that one was born Christmas day out in the field the 'week after my husband, Floyd, died. Noel was the only one in his litter that survived, and I was so lonesome, I brought him inside to raise. He comforted me through a hard time, and I just figure that every once in a while, he gets a hankering to do that same thing for someone else. He comes and goes as he needs to, and that's fine with me."

Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King

by Michael D. Morgan Greg Hardman

Over-the-Rhine is a place where a building owner can stumble upon huge caverns underneath a basement floor or find long-forgotten tunnels that travel far below city streets. Its present mysteries are attributable to a past that transcends the common story of how cities change over time: it is the story of how a clash between immigrants and "real Americans" helped rob Cincinnati of its image, its soul and its economy. In the 1870s, OTR was comparable to the cultural hearts of Paris and Vienna. By the turn of the last century, the neighborhood was home to roughly three hundred saloons and had over a dozen breweries within or adjacent to its borders. It was beloved by countless citizens and travelers for the exact reasons that others successfully sought to destroy it. This is the story of how the heart of the "Paris of America" became a time capsule.

Meena Harper has a special gift, but it's only now that anyone's ever appreciated it. The Palatine Guard-a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican-has hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. With Meena's ability to predict how everyone she meets will die, the Palatine finally has a chance against the undead. Sure, her ex-boyfriend was Lucien Anton­escu, son of Dracula, the prince of darkness. But that was before he (and their relationship) went up in flames. Now Meena's sworn off vampires for good . . . at least until she can prove her theory that just because they've lost their souls doesn't mean demons have lost the ability to love. Meena knows convincing her co-workers-including her partner, Über-demon-hunter Alaric Wulf-that vampires can be redeemed won't be easy . . . especially when a deadly new threat seems to be endangering not just lives of the Palatine, but Meena's friends and family as well. But Meena isn't the Palatine's only hope. Father Henrique-aka Padre Caliente-New York City's youngest, most charming priest, has also been assigned to the case. So why doesn't Meena-or Alaric-trust him? As she begins unraveling the truth, Meena finds her loyalties tested, her true feelings laid bare . . . and temptations she never even imagined existed impossible to resist. This time, Meena may finally have bitten off more than she can chew.

Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present

by Cory Doctorow

"Cory Doctorow straps on his miner's helmet and takes you deep into the caverns and underground rivers of pop culture, here filtered through SF-colored glasses. Enjoy."--Neil Gaiman New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow has been hailed as one of the freshest voices in science fiction, and this collection of intriguing novellas is yet another reason why. Have you ever wondered what it's like to live through a bioweapon attack or to have every aspect of your life governed by invisible ants? In Cory Doctorow's collection of novellas, he wields his formidable experience in technology and computing to give us mind-bending sci-fi tales that explore the possibilities of information technology--and its various uses--run amok. "Anda's Game" is a spin on the bizarre new phenomenon of "cyber sweatshops," in which people are paid very low wages to play online games all day in order to generate in-game wealth, which can be converted into actual money. Another tale tells of the heroic exploits of "sysadmins"--systems administrators--as they defend the cyberworld, and hence the world at large, from worms and bioweapons. And yes, there's a story about zombies, too. "He sparkles! He fizzes! He does backflips and breaks the furniture! Science fiction needs Cory Doctorow." --Bruce Sterling, award-winning author of Schismatrix Plus and The Difference Engine
