Leisure Horror & Other Genre Fiction at Big Lots Stores

If you have a Big Lots (closeout store) in your area, I spotted some great genre fiction including some Leisure Horror books today for $2.00.

These are the books I scored:

Monstrosity by Edward Lee

It turns out this one was already on my bookshelf.  *sigh*  I do that a lot.  This to be read pile of mine is uncontrollable.  Now when I do get a chance to read it, I'll have an extra copy to give away to you guys.

MonstrosityBlue skies, palm trees, and flawless white sand beaches. Clare Prentiss thinks her new home is paradise, and her brand-new job as security chief at the clinic almost seems too good to be true.
It is.
Lurid dreams, erotic obsessions, and twisted sexual fantasies aren’t the only things that abruptly invade Clare’s life. Is someone really peeping into her windows at night?
Are those screams she hears just her imagination?
Is Clare being stalked?
Yes. But not by a man. By a monstrosity.
Will the last scream Clare hears be her own? 

Dark Mountain by Richard Laymon

Dark MountainThe description for this book reminds me a lot of Laymon's No Sanctuary.  I didn't want to go camping again after reading that one.  I'm certain this book will do the same!

A thriller set in the Californian mountains as two families embark on a camping holiday.
Scavenger by David Morrell 

Scavenger is the second book in the Frank Balenger series.  (Creepers is the first.)

ScavengerFrank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of David Morrell's acclaimed Creepers, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death. To save himself and the woman he loves, he must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obsession for unearthing the past. But sometimes the past is buried for a reason. Scavenger is a brilliant, frightening hunter-hunted tale that layers modern technology over the dusty artifacts of earlier times. The result is a surreal palimpsest, one that contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the game’s clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger.

Lost: Endangered Species by Cathy Hapka 

Endangered Species is the first novelization of the show.  I couldn't help myself.

Lost: Endangered Species - Novelization #1LOST, the television series, takes place on a remote South Pacific island, where a plane crash has left 48 survivors stranded. In ENDANGERED SPECIES we read about Faith, an environmental activist and reptile specialist, whose dream industry conference turns into a nightmare and lands her among the survivors on the island. While Locke isn’t suspicious of her, there are more than a few others who openly wonder about how much she uses her knowledge to help – or to terrorize -- the other survivors.

I have a decent commute to work, and there is another Big Lots out in that area.  I know where I will be during lunch on Monday...
