    DescriptionWhat do gorgons, basilisks, and frogs with feathers all have in common? They're all considered mythological by modern science, and some people are working very hard to keep them that way. Alexander Price is a member of a cryptozoological lineage that spans generations, and it's his job to act as a buffer between the human and cryptid worlds--not an easy task when you're dealing with women who has snakes in place of hair, little girls who may actually be cobras, and brilliant, beautiful Australian zookeepers. And then there's the matter of the murders... Alex thought he was choosing the easier career when he decided to specialize in non-urban cryptids, leaving the cities to his little sister, Verity. He had no idea what he was letting himself in for. It's a family affair, and everyone--from his reanimated grandfather to his slightly broken telepathic cousin--is going to find themselves drawn in before things get any better. "Half-Off Ragnarok" is the third installment of the highly praised "InCryptid" series.

    Author Information
    Seanan McGuire is a California-based author with a strong penchant for travel and can regularly be found just about anyplace capable of supporting human life (as well as a few places that probably aren't). Early exposure to a vast number of books left her with a lifelong affection for the written word, and led, perhaps inevitably, to her writing books of her own, starting somewhere around the age of eleven. The "October Daye "novels are her first urban fantasy series, and the "InCryptid" novels are her second series, both published by DAW and bother of which have put her in the" New York Times "bestseller list. Seanan was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer; "Rosemary and Rue," the first novel in the "October Daye "series, was named one of the Top 20 Paranormal Fantasy Novels of the Past Decade; and her novel "Feed," written under the name Mira Grant, was named as one of "Publishers Weekly's "Best Books of 2010. She also won a Hugo for her podcast, and is the first person to be nominated for five Hugo Awards in a single year. You can visit her at www.seananmcguire.com.
