In a suburb on Boston’s North Shore, a catatonic little girl is found behind a dumpster. She is a mystery. As Social Worker Debbie Gillan pieces together the puzzle of the child's identity, she discovers the child had disappeared two years earlier along with a twin sister. She also discovers HANNAHWHERE, an alternate world that is both a haven and a prison.... Life altering trauma becomes the key to unraveling the truth about the children, about Hannahwhere...and about Debbie herself. Truths that could either save them or destroy them all. “HANNAHWHERE is a revelation. This constantly surprising novel has some very dark moments, but John McIlveen's clean, clear prose carries you through them and back into the light of the good, decent people who fuel this story with their desperate efforts to do the right thing. Hannah herself is a joy. If she were up for adoption, I'd be the first in line.” -- F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of COLD CITY “HANNAHWHERE by John McIlveen is everything a book should be--filled with unforgettable characters, fast-paced, and a page-turner. I loved it!” -- Heather Graham, New York Times bestselling author of LET THE DEAD SLEEP "From the very first line of HANNAHWHERE, you know you're in good hands. John McIlveen raises a compelling new voice with a story that is at once playful and frightening, thrilling and heartbreaking. Highly recommended." -- Jonathan Maberry, New York TImes bestselling author of ROT & RUIN and FIRE & ASH. "John McIlveen's HANNAHWHERE is a thrilling, emotionally complex paranormal mystery. The little girls at the center of the story will touch your heart and unsettle you, all at the same time. A wonderful first novel from an exciting new voice in genre fiction." -- Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of SNOWBLIND "Love it, love it, LOVE IT!" -- Rick Hautala, bestselling author of THE DEMON'S WIFE

This text, based on Louise M. Rosenblatt's transactional model of literature, focuses on the application of transactional reader-response theory in the classroom. It grows from frequent requests from secondary school and college teachers for teaching suggestions on how to put theory into practice. This is not a "What should I do on Monday?" cookbook, but an expression of the practice of theory in college and secondary school classrooms. The chapters portray a spectrum of strategies--including biopoems, expressive and imaginative writing, journal writing, readers' theater, role playing, and unsent letters--using as examples individual works from several genres. Recognizing that teachers who may have been trained in other theories and methodologies may be hesitant about their quite different role and expectations in the reader-centered classroom, the authors provide stepping stones to develop readiness and confidence, suggestions, and insights to ease the transition to the transactional model of teaching and learning. Pedagogical features: * An explanatory introduction to each section defines its orientation and describes the content and direction of the chapters it contains. * Invitations elicit engagement of readers with concepts, attitudes, or strategies presented in the chapters; they invite readers, as individuals or members of a small group, to consider ideas or to practice a strategy, among other activities, in order to enhance understandings. * A glossary defines key concepts and strategies discussed in the text. * A bibliography provides an extensive list of resources--books and journal articles--both theoretical and applied. New in the second edition: * Six new chapters--three deal with the roles of film-as-literature in the English classroom, and three with enhancing multicultural understandings. * Updates and revisions to several chapters that appeared in the first edition. * Invitations, new in this edition, have been added to focus and expand readers' thinking.

The Seeds of Nightmares is the first collection of short fiction by horror and genre author Tony Tremblay, under his own name. This collection includes many of his published stories (under the pseudonym, T. T. Zuma), as well as the novellette, The Strange Saga of Mattie Dyer, published here for the first time. The thirteen tales in The Seeds of Nightmares run a gambit of genres from terrifying horror, atmospheric noir, to the blackest (and bloody) dark humor. From the introduction by acclaimed author, John McIlveen (Hannahwhere, Inflictions): In THE SEEDS OF NIGHTMARES, Tony offers us a smorgasbord – a feast of emotions and genres that cover the spectrum. Take his opening offering for example, the nasty little novelette The Strange Saga of Mattie Dyer, a darkly humorous, Lovecraftian, western, tale of vengeance (yes, you read that right). Wrought with unsavory and despicable characters—a thwarted woman, a vile creature, redneck gold-diggers, and Indians—it’s a virtual Pandora’s Box and a hell of a first run…. There will be twists, bumps, a little blood, and possibly a few tears, but you’re tough…you can take it. So have a seat, strap in, and enjoy the ride! Stories in this collection include: The Strange Saga of Mattie Dyer The Old Man The Burial Board Something New Stardust The Soldier’s Wife Tsunami The Black Dress Chiyoung and Dongsun’s Song Husband of Kellie An Alabama Christmas The Pawnshop The Visitors
