3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 127 libraries worldwide
"Meet Siobhan Quinn--half werewolf, half vampire, and completely screwed. After successfully transitioning from being a notorious junkie demon hunter into a notorious werepire hit man, she's become a full-fledged member of the world of horrors. But her initiation into the underbelly of supernatural society hasn't earned her any friends. Not only is she being hounded by a former priest with a vendetta against the undead, but her boss, Mr. B, has no qualms about sending her on missions pretty much guaranteed to end her life...again. When the daughter of a prominent Rhode Island necromancer goes missing, Quinn is given the thankless job of tracking her down before her father finds out and raises (literal) hell. The only problem is that the girl is caught up in something much bigger than a simple vanishing act. Something related to an ancient magical totem so powerful a host of distinctly unsavory folks in three dimensions would kill to get their hands on it. And Quinn's the lucky monster caught in the cross fire..."--
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
