FREE PREVIEW http://www.enginepress.com/killingdemons.html#

Homicide Detective Sarah Bentley is trying to stop a serial killer with a penchant for mutilation. When her superiors try to sweep the killings under the rug, she turns to a walking anachronism who calls himself a "Demon Hunter." Sarah doesn't believe in demons, but as he's the only one willing to help her, it's a point she doesn't have time to argue.
The killer has chosen his next victim, and Sarah will take whatever works.

Debuting this summer, Killing Demons is an experiment in urban horror written by Peter Siegel, illustrated by Brent White, designed for print by Matt Fraction and edited by Kelly Sue DeConnick. You don't need to believe, just keep your back away from the door.

In the meantime, please enjoy this free online preview, which contains a complete thirteen-page story detailing a day in Demon Hunter Joshua Brand's childhood, some twenty-five years ago...

Last of the Independents


A good man, a bad move, and then all Hell breaks loose: Cole Claudle was just one big score away from his happily-ever-after when everything went off the rails, and fast.

Now, one man's last shot at the American Dream becomes the first shotgun blast in a mob ware halfway between Vegas and nowhere.

"The Forces of Good are many things, speaking through a single filter. They make music which is modulated and recombined from the intravenous oil at the heart of the City of London. The Forces of Good are a battle against the queasy grey arm of the bore. This site is the forefront of that struggle. The F.O.G. project is part of a larger project to save the Earth from destruction by over-wrought pop songs and ugly plastic gibberish. If you fight for what is right then you must defend the sonic faith by downloading the F.O.G. tracks. Anyway..."

Excellent Stuff. I recommend "trans elation 1" & "like a normal genius"

21 Feb 1957
The AEC/DBM director recommends the return of the Rongelapese to their home as soon as rehabilitation is completed and the continuation of MEDICAL inspections and RADIATION surveys on the island. He bases his recommendations on projected statistics. Extrapolation of data suggests that gamma doses on Rongelap "would not greatly exceed (if at all)" 0.5 roentgens for the first year and would decline in later years. The director compares these figures to those recommended by the NCRP for adult workers of 0.3 roentgens per week with "a restriction and for population as a whole of a total of 14 million rem per million of population" over the first 30 years of life. He also projects that the average concentration of strontium 90 might be less than 360 Sunshine units and, with the elimination of land crabs, 107 Sunshine units. (A Sunshine unit equals 0.001 of the permissible body burden. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) allows 100 Sunshine units for adult workers.) (131)
