A woman with no memory wakes up in a city with no history.

The city is alive. Among skyscrapers of flesh and bridges of bone, rogue trains consume their passengers, prophetic Buddhas grow out of sidewalks, and the night is lit up with walking neon signs.

The city is under siege from famine victims turned ravenous monsters, while the city's own flesh begins to mutate.

Somehow, the woman is the key in an eternal struggle pitting city against country, corruption against starvation, a power-crazed madman against a dying infant.

Hunted as a pawn by several factions, she alone may have the power to end the conflict, if she dare unlock her terrible memories. But she has to choose: between the country and the city; between the lost boy-next-door and the man who is not human; between survival and self-sacrifice.

This dark fantasy novel – at times wondrous, at others horrific – will amaze and haunt you.

“It starts in an empty hotel. A woman, waking, dreaming of food, her memory gone. A mystery... Here the fascination begins. She has a mission yet to be discovered, but within a city that is itself living... Half the enjoyment is simply in the exploration, a magical journey surrounded by wonders, but also indications of tension, perhaps even war. And always avoiding the zombie-like ‘Hungry Ones’ of the book's title. Fascinating.”
     —James Dorr, Bram Stoker Award(R) nominee for The Tears of Isis

“an exquisitely complex and unique story...the ending just walloped me. Very, very impressive!”
     —Laurie Hilburn, Clicking Keys

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
