11 Matheson, Richard Hunted Past Reason
0765302713 / 9780765302717; Author of What Dreams May Come, Richard Matheson is one of the twentieth century's acknowledged masters of suspense.

But the enforced isolation of the hike soon exposes long-hidden rivalries and resentments between Bob and his guide through the forest, a fading TV actor whom Bob has known for several years. The deeper into the primeval wilderness, the greater the tension between the two men becomes - until the simmering hostility erupts into a terrifying life-or-death struggle for survival. Haunted Beyond Reason is a nail-biting thriller in the classic Matheson tradition. Turn on the lights! ! 335 gripping pages. The binding is black. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

14 Oates, Joyce Carol What I Lived For
0525938362 / 9780525938361; At forty-two, Jerome Corcoran - "Corky" to his friends and associates - is by all appearances a successful real estate developer and broker, a city councilman with a promising future in local politics, a genuine ladies' man, and all-around great guy. His big house, fifteen-hundred-dollar suits, and the ridiculously large tips he hands out all over town reassure him that he's put plenty of distance between himself and the family history (which includes a murdered father and raving mad mother) he'd rather forget. Corky may think that his inauspicious beginnings on Irish Hill, one of Union City's shabbier neighborhoods, are now far behind him, but over the course of Memorial Day Weekend 1992, that precious illusion, along with several others, will be completely shattered. The jacket has two very small areas at the front joint that appear to have been pinched; the spots show against the black jacket. 608 pages, price not clipped; remaindered. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
