Kathe Koja's classic, award-winning horror novel is finally available as an ebook. Nicholas, a would-be poet, and Nakota, his feral lover, discover a strange hole in the storage room floor down the hall - "Black. Pure black and the sense of pulsation, especially when you look at it too closely, the sense of something not living but alive." It begins with curiosity, a joke - the Funhole down the hall. But then the experiments begin. "Wouldn't it be wild to go down there?" says Nakota. Nicholas says "We're not." But they're not in control, not from the first moment, as those experiments lead to obsession, violence, and a very final transformation for everyone who gets too close to the Funhole. THE CIPHER was the winner of the 1991 Bram Stoker Award, and was recently named one of io9.com's Top 10 Debut Science Fiction Novels That Took the World By Storm. Long out-of-print and much sought-after, it is finally available as an ebook, with a new foreword by the author. "An ethereal rollercoaster ride from start to finish." - The Detroit Free Press "Combines intensely poetic language and lavish grotesqueries." - BoingBoing "Kathe Koja is a poet ... [T]he kind that prefers to read in seedy bars instead of universities, but a poet." - The New York Review of Science Fiction "Her 20-something characters are poverty-gagged 'artists' who exist in that demimonde of shitty jobs, squalid art galleries, and thrift stores; her settings are run-down studios, flat-beer bars, and dingy urban streets [a] long way from Castle Rock, Dunwich, or Stepford, that's for sure." - Too Much Horror Fiction "This powerful first novel is as thought-provoking as it is horrifying." - Publishers Weekly "Unforgettable ... [THE CIPHER] takes you into the lives of the dark dreamers that crawl on the underbelly of art and culture. Seldom has language been so visceral and so right." - Locus "[THE CIPHER] is a book that makes you sit up, pay attention, and jettison your moldy preconceptions about the genre ... Utterly original ... [An} imaginative debut." - Fangoria "Not so much about the vast and wonderful strangeness of the universe as it is about the horrific and glorious potential of the human spirit." - Short Form

From international bestselling author Brad Parks comes an emotional, heart-pounding thriller that explores the scientific unknown--and one woman's efforts to save her husband from its consequences. Quantum physicist Matt Bronik is suffering from strange, violent seizures that medical science seems powerless to explain--much to the consternation of his wife, Brigid. Matt doesn't think these fits could be related to his research, which he has always described as benign and esoteric. That, it turns out, is not quite true: Matt has been prodding the mysteries of the quantum universe, with terrible repercussions for his health. And perhaps even for humanity as a whole. Then, in the midst of another seizure, Matt disappears. When foul play is feared, there is no shortage of suspects. Matt's research had gained the attention of Chinese competitors, an unscrupulous billionaire, and the Department of Defense, among others. With Matt's life in clear danger, Brigid sets out to find him. Will Matt be killed before she reaches him, or could the physics that endangered him actually be used to save his life?
If the works of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Isaac Asimov appeal to you, this might be the book for you. Does the idea of a chip implant by the government to ensure you are happy because you can only make right decisions seem plausible if it is not already reality. Technology is advancing so fast that what the author intended to be a work of fiction was being overtaken by reality, chapter-by-chapter, every few weeks. What sets this book apart from similar science-fiction is its humor and humanity. Advance readers fell in love with a quirky robot. Can an android become a born-again Christian? Many of the characters in this book say it is impossible. Most people who have read Flee or Die now accept the premise that it is possible. Once advanced computers rule the world, can they be persuaded to relinquish complete control over humans? What argument would cause the computers to return free agency to the humans? Is one woman strong enough to defy her mother and change the course of history even while the government is trying to kill her? Where will she find refuge? Can one renegade robot overcome the government's prohibition against religion and proselyting? How can it survive? If the forced consumption of unremitting pornography is destroying a large segment of humanity, what will it take to reverse this menace to the existence of mankind? Will the purveyors of this plague forego their billions without a fight? This is a fictional book, written for entertainment. The serious questions posed throughout this novel might cause you to wonder how long it will take before reality overtakes the speculation of our world in the near future. These questions bothered one advance reader so much that she wrote the author a scathing rebuke for seriously damaging her world view. The nice thing about you not having your mandatory chip implant today (well, at least when this book was first published) is you can lay it down at any time if you don't like it. Caution, you still might find it hard to forget.
