Dominion has been released as a TPB, and can be ordered pretty much anywhere if any copies do not show up here.  Dominion is a haunting tale about the loss of a loved one, and how much damage cyberspace can do to a person.  Also, Blood in Electric Blue has been announced for preorder, ETA 3/25, but this is a collector's HC, so it might not turn up on here (or in regular bookstores).  BiEB is about a lonely character who tries to track down the previous owner of a used book on mythical creatures that he has purchased (owner's name written in the inside cover), and finds her.  I know that a few people were interested in my comments about Gifune in the posts, so this might be of interest to some.

Thanks for the info Steve!  You are always such a big help!  I haven't found any Greg Gifune books at the used book store, but I will keep looking! ~ Rebecca

Blood in Electric Blue synopsis from the Publisher:

Dignon Malloy lives with his cat Mr. Tibbs in a rundown apartment in the heart of a dreary, nameless, industrial coastal city. Haunted by dark visions, memories of horrific childhood abuse and the recent murder of a coworker, his is a lonely, sad and painful existence… until he ventures into a used bookstore and comes across an old paperback titled Mythical Beings in a Mortal World.

Inside, someone has written a name—Bree Harper—and a phone number. Is it an innocent note left by the previous owner, or something far more sinister? As Dignon delves deeper into the book, and who, or possibly what, the beautiful and enigmatic Bree Harper is, he begins to realize finding this book may not have been a random event after all. His life and history may be more complex than he realized, and his role in the universe much deadlier than he ever imagined.

As Dignon moves closer to the truth, the lines between pain and beauty, and the horrors of the past and the terrifying realities of the present, become strangely malleable, blurring what is real and what is myth, who and what he and those around him may be, what the ghosts haunting him from his past may truly mean, and how the evil mythological creature stalking him may not be a myth at all, but horrifyingly real.


And Dominion as well:

When Daniel Cicero’s wife Lindsay is killed by a hit-and-run-driver, a large part of his own soul dies along with her. His happiness is shattered, his life destroyed. Unable to cope, he soon loses his job and eventually his sense of purpose, and as he descends into the throes of depression and sorrow, he spends his nights aimlessly wandering the streets of Boston and his days in a fog, living by rote, unable to move forward or to let go of the past.

And then the anonymous phone calls begin. A man claiming Lindsay is still alive taunts and threatens him with facts he could not possibly know. When strange and frightening visions begin to appear on his computer, a firestorm of horrifying nightmares and painful memories are unleashed that haunt Daniel at every turn, and with everything he knew of good and evil, life, death, love and loss in question, he slowly descends into a terrifying world of malevolence and madness where technology and age-old evils have merged, and where the walls separating the living from the dead may no longer exist.

In life—in death—and in the realms between the two—there is DOMINION.
