Barnabus’ nephew is behaving oddly. Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front-room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared? Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

A preacher's daughter's excessive appetite for the dark side compromises her relationship with a young atheist; his desperation to save her catapults him into a strange world that is literally about to blow up in his face; and a theology professor turned demon hunter tries to save our world by battling a creature from the River Styx. In a hidden place where demons float in and out of earth's realm through a swirling mystical hole, what can save us?

Zara Riddle moved to Wisteria for a quiet, simple, safe life. Instead, she got ghosts, demon birds, shifters, and even gorgons. Luckily for Zara, her family tree is riddled with witchcraft. She may be a late bloomer, but this witch is crafty. When mysterious forces erase words from the town's books, Zara conjures a magical creature to restore the text. But magic has a mind of its own, and magical creatures love trouble. Pretty soon, the bodies start piling up. Now Zara must face whoever (or whatever) is behind a dark plot to destroy everything she loves.

The holiday film A Christmas Story, first released in 1983, has become a bona fide Christmas perennial, gaining in stature and fame with each succeeding year. Its affectionate, wacky, and wryly realistic portrayal of an American family's typical Christmas joys and travails in small-town Depression-era Indiana has entered our imagination and our hearts with a force equal to It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

You probably won't like my story. Heck, I'm not sure if I even like it myself. Between getting burned at the stake and being drowned, almost twice, it's quite a lot to swallow. I'm not sure where it all went wrong. Everything was going fine my freshman year of college as a history major. I had a full-time job as a paramedic and any girl I wanted was mine. When tragedy struck our family, I found myself in France with my sister, Jules. And she just had to touch that mirror. She had to get us transported to the middle ages. 1155 A.D., to be exact. What. The. Hell.
