The Loveliest Dead

From Publishers Weekly
In this ironically titled shocker from horror maestro Garton (Live Girls), the dead, who are pretty ugly, make life a hell for the living. Jenna and David Kellar, after a series of personal tragedies, the worst of which is the inexplicable death of their four-year-old son, Josh, hope to make a new start at the old family homestead they've inherited just outside Eureka, Calif., with their surviving son, Miles. Instead, they discover a nightmare. Ghostly children cavort mysteriously on the backyard swings and vanish at will. Tantalizingly, cruelly, one resembles Josh. After a slow start, the action pulls the reader into a frightening world of psychics, ouija boards and poltergeists. The scenario will remind many of Stephen King's The Shining, even though this workmanlike effort isn't in the same league as that...

Book Description
RAISING THE DEAD With midterms looming, the students at Sunnydale High are predictably stressed-out. Even super-student Willow is feeling the pressure to succeed. And when her usual study buddies -- Buffy, Xander, and Oz -- decide they don't need her tutorial sessions, Willow wonders if she's really what they don't need. But her hurt feelings don't explain her sudden antagonism toward Buffy -- or the strange dreams they've both been having. As tensions in the school escalate into brutal acts of violence -- and the perpetrators turn up horribly mutilated -- Buffy and the gang search for a supernatural source. The evidence indicates that someone is attempting to resurrect a powerful Hindu demon. Willow's new con?dante, guidance counselor Promila Daruwalla, becomes the prime suspect...until Giles runs into an old...

Download Description
On the outskirts of Sunnydale, recent rains have uncovered the remains of a five hundred-year-old Spanish expedition. But one of the artifacts, a smoky mirror with an ornately carved obsidian frame, goes missing, along with the history teacher who found it. And when Buffy narrowly escapes the attack of a black jaguar while on patrol, Giles puts the gang into research mode. An ancient volume identifies the missing mirror as a magical object formed by the Aztec god of darkness. A mortal who looks into the mirror will see his or her fate -- and can be manipulated by the evil god, who is scheming to regain his power. Taking their destinies into their own hands, the Slayer and her friends rush into a ferocious battle between light and darkness in the shadows of a massive Aztec temple, a battle against perpetual...

Book Description
Davey's on the down and out when he loses his girl, his job and practically his sanity. While some men drown themselves in a forgiving bottle, Davey believes it's much more profitable to sink into Times Square's nightlife and lose himself inside Live Girls. They are the free ravishing pleasures who beckon Davey into a world of irresistible fantasy and ecstasy. One of them propositions him with a kiss, an insatiable kiss that leads him far from the misery he once felt to a demonic place where body and soul are sacrificed for obsessions.

From Publishers Weekly
In this tired sequel to Garton's memorable Live Girls (1987), about a seedy vampire-run 42nd Street peepshow, the protagonists of the earlier book, a brave reporter and a vampire couple, have left the now family-friendly street for the nondescript suburbs. The vampire couple have survived into middle-age by drinking bottled blood, unlike the "brutals," vicious vampires who prefer theirs fresh. Unfortunately, the story has also aged, the plot mechanism is unconvincing and the author's trademark sexual violence is clinically narrated. Garton fans may lap up this Bloody Mary, but most readers will find it as flat as bottled blood, uninspired treading on familiar turf.

From Publishers Weekly
Garton (Sex and Violence in Hollywood) delivers his usual potent cocktail of extreme physical horror, if without the graphic sex and sly humor that redeemed 2003's The New Neighbor. The memory of a botched operation on his penis as a little boy still haunts Stuart Mullond ("Gotta make sure you can pee right, Stuart"). Worse, Dr. Furgeson, the urologist, has been reappearing mysteriously in Stuart's life, snapping those familiar scissors and threatening more surgery ("Snick-snick-snick"), even though he's a dying hulk in a nursing home. Stuart's relations with his former wife, his present companion and his young son have gone to hell, and no wonder with that scissors-toting doctor always around. Garton fans will relish a revolting Santa Claus, the removal of a heart from a living patient, dripping intestines and...

From Library Journal
When trucker Bill Ketter dallies with a lot lizard (a young female hooker working the truck stops), he gets a bit more than he bargained for. The "lizard" is a vampire, one of several hauled from stop to stop by the repulsive Carsey Brothers, and against his will Bill becomes one of the undead. Following the brothers and their cargo to another stop where he meets his ex-wife and children, Bill finds himself battling the vampires and their age-old leader for the life of his teenaged son. Garton has crafted a nifty contemporary adult horror novel with perhaps more sex and gore than usual for the genre. Its single setting provides the right claustrophobic stage for the episodic story; however, the quick pace works against the reader's empathizing with the characters, and some of the action seems anticlimactic....
