Two years after the opening of Liquor, New Orleans chefs Rickey and G-man are immersed in their restaurant, until a bad review hints that their "silent" backer has ulterior motives, and they realize it may be time to end their dependence on him. When Rickey is offered a plum consulting job at a Dallas restaurant, it seems the perfect way to beef up their bank account. But taking the gig will mean a reunion with an older chef with whom Rickey shared an unsettling encounter back in culinary school, as well as dealing with Texas businessman/restaurateur Frank Firestone. Rickey finally accepts the offer and revamps Firestone's menu, to rave reviews. Home in New Orleans, Rickey receives disturbing information that forces his return to Dallas. Then G-man learns that there's more to the story--and that Rickey is in Texas-size danger.--From publisher description

"At our human limits, when we've gone as far as flesh and imagination can take us, we meet the Eternal One. The Crow. Immemorially old, and inconsolable, he is there only for those who seek both revenge and love, and are willing to go all the way--and beyond. Five, four, three, two--Jared Poe counts the days on Louisiana's Death Row. The controversial S & M photographer has been condemned to die for killing his lover. He doesn't know who did it. ONly that he didn't. Can he clear his name and find the real killer in time? No. For this is no ordinary thriller. We are in the dark realm of the Crow, and Jaret must feel the cold shudder of Death; must hear the beating of black wings; must prowl the shadowy goth netherworld of New Orleans, to prove he was no killer when he died. And find out what kind of killer he has become"--P. [4] of cover

Two worlds and in between : the best of Caitlín R. Kiernan by Caitlín R Kiernan( Book )
in English and held by 110 libraries worldwide
This retrospective volume, the first of two, contains works published between 1993 and 2004 that show Kiernan's rapid ascent from a journeyman writer bringing a fresh perspective to classic horror themes ("Emptiness Spoke Eloquent," a Dracula "sequel," and the title tale, an exercise in punk nihilism with zombies) to one of the most innovative and imaginative stylists in contemporary dark fantasy. Particularly noteworthy are two award-winning stories: "La Peau Verte," an otherworldly absinthe fantasy, and the horror tour de force "Onion," about a couple haunted by encounters with the supernatural that represent both the most horrifying and the most transcendent moments of their depressingly common lives
