In J.R. Rain's short story, Samantha Moon meets someone unexpected on a late night trip to Denny's, someone who seems to know all her secrets and has all the answers.
"Book Burning": Two brothers find themselves on a late-night mission to burn a legendary book of supposed dark powers.
"The Silo": The land is dying and crops are failing. The city of Wheatopia is in the middle of the worst drought in recent memory; that is, until a city-slicker and his too-thin wife arrive in town one day with designs to rebuild the town's grain silo into something majestic.
Plus, a bonus short story....

"Powerful stuff!" (Aiden James, author of Cades Cove and The Vampires' Last Lover)
"J.R. Rain's Samantha Moon is one of the most refreshing new characters I have come across in quite some time." (H.T. Night, author of Vampire Love Story and The Werewolf Whisperer)
"I enjoyed this immensely. The protagonist, Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she's trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she's a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. It is not a horror story; she buys animal blood to eat and doesn't generally prey on humans. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness-not of spirit, but of body. 'You sicken me and scare the hell out of me,' he tells her. 'And when I touch you it's all I can do to not gag.' She replies, 'Words every wife wants to hear.' I love this! What makes it special are her character and nature." (Piers Anthony, best-selling author of A Spell for Chameleon and On A Pale Horse)
