Bold new essays on how to craft a thrilling read--in any genre--from the bestselling author of The Dead Lands Anyone familiar with the meteoric rise of Benjamin Percy's career will surely have noticed a certain shift: After writing two short-story collections and a literary novel, he delivered the werewolf thriller Red Moon and the postapocalyptic epic The Dead Lands. Now, in his first book of nonfiction, Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are somehow mutually exclusive. The title essay is an ode to the kinds of books that make many readers fall in love with fiction: science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, horror, from J.R.R. Tolkien to Anne Rice, Ursula K. Le Guin to Stephen King. Percy's own academic experience banished many of these writers in the name of what is "literary" and what is "genre." Then he discovered Michael Chabon, Aimee Bender, Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Atwood, and others who employ techniques of genre fiction while remaining literary writers. In fifteen essays on the craft of fiction, Percy looks to disparate sources such as Jaws, Blood Meridian, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum, and the speculative, as well as character, setting, and dialogue. An urgent and entertaining missive on craft, Thrill Me brims with Percy's distinctive blend of anecdotes, advice, and close reading, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader.

Thrill Me

You could have told me you had concerns. But you didn't. It's not like I was the love ... I guess the truth isn't that I didn't trust you, I didn't trust myself.” She dropped his arm and wanted to turn ... Plus, I wanted to go thrill Me 98.

Meet the Mitchell brothers of Fool's Gold, California—five gorgeous men who've left a trail of broken hearts in their wake… Maya Farlow learned the hard way to depend only on herself, so when she fell too deeply for the bad-boy charms of Del Mitchell, she did the only thing she could—she ran. Stunned, Del left Fool's Gold to make his name and fortune in extreme sports. Now ten years later, Maya's been hired to promote her hometown's new slogan, The Destination for Romance. The celebrity spokesman is none other than Del, the man she dumped but never forgot. Awkward! Although Del's not the type to hold a grudge, he's determined to avoid falling a second time for the woman who broke his heart. He's a daredevil, not an idiot. Trouble is, in all his adventures, he never found a rush as exhilarating as Maya's kiss. Maybe risking his heart will prove to be the biggest thrill of all… Look for Best of My Love, the next title in Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.

Achtung! Dark Romance Alarm. Florence: Ich habe einen Fehler gemacht. Einen verdammt schwerwiegenden. Schon als mir der Mann mit den kältesten Augen der Welt vor meinem Wohnhaus begegnete, schrillten in meinem Kopf laute Alarmsirenen. Und doch wollte ich wissen, ob ich mir durch seine dunkle Aura und die zugleich wunderschönen und steinharten Gesichtszüge bloß einbildete, dass das Shirt unter seinem teuren Kaschmirmantel blutdurchtränkt war. Nun habe ich meine Antwort. Doch genau das ist das Problem. Rick: Ich sah sie an mir vorbeilaufen, war vollkommen eingenommen von ihrer unschuldigen Schönheit, doch wusste instinktiv, die Kleine bedeutet Ärger. Für einen kurzen Moment vergaß ich sogar meinen eigenen Namen, so verdammt heftig traf mich ihr gieriger und zugleich verängstigter Blick.Und dann stand sie dort. An einem Ort, den ich niemals zweimal besuche. Einem Ort, den ich schleunigst verlasse und zu dem ich unter keinen Umständen zurückkehre. Einem Tatort, für dessen grausamen Anblick ich alleine verantwortlich bin. Mein Instinkt war vollkommen richtig - die Kleine bedeutet Ärger. Wäre sie bloß nicht so verdammt neugierig gewesen. Denn auch diese wunderschönen, stahlgrauen Augen können sie nicht vor dem Schicksal bewahren, das ihr nun droht. Vor dem Schicksal, über das ich entscheide. Explizite Szenen. Dunkle Fantasien. Harte Umgangsformen. Ungeschönte Aussprache.Es handelt sich hierbei um eine eigenständige Geschichte ohne Zusammenhang mit dem Vorgänger "Catch Me. Kiss Me. Hurt Me. Miss Me."

The Lesson - According to Kicks... Heine pointed the knife at her. "O.K., Lady Godiva, take off the blouse." She stood motionless, unable to answer or move. "Go ahead," Heine said. "Take that piece-of-nothing off." The boy’s shoulders slumped and he began to groan. "Brace, mister!" Bar shouted. He put a fist in the boy’s gut, and the boy sank to his knees in the dirt, weeping helplessly. "O.K., green-belly," Bar said. "Stay there. Your turn comes next." Dazedly the girl undid her blouse. Heine reached and yanked it off her shoulders. She stood there quivering, her pink slip plain and worn. Behind them, Manny began to cough. Johnny stood rooted to the place from where he watched. "Let the straps down," Heine said to the girl. "Please. Please..." "Do what I tell you." Heine held the knife menacingly. The boy began to pray softly in Spanish. She raised trembling fingers to her bare shoulders and slipped the straps over them. The top of her slip and her bra fell to her waist. "Let her go," Manny whispered. "You ought to let her go now. Huh?" "Let her go!" Bar shouted. "What are you worried about, mister? We’re just teaching these two juvenile delinquents a lesson. Don’t you understand that, mister? We’re going to teach these two juvenile delinquents a lesson they’re never, never going to forget." He drew his foot back violently and kicked the boy in the groin. "Isn’t that right, green-belly?" The boy’s scream of pain rent the air of the summer night.
