The Private Letters of Countess Erzsébet Báthory by Kimberly L. Craft

In this book, readers are given a rare glimpse into the life of Hungary's most controversial noblewoman, Countess Erzsébet (Elizabeth) Báthory. Over 40 letters and documents, many of which have been recently discovered and translated, are presented here for the first time in English. Read the private letters Lady Báthory sent in secret to fellow nobility, learn how she administered her estates, and experience life as she knew it. Historical background is provided as well as biographical material. This book is an excellent resource for the Báthory scholar and enthusiast who is looking for new and factual information on the so-called Infamous lady.

Bridges - A tale of Niagara by d.k. LeVick

The ice bridge of Niagara Falls-steeped in history, fraught with tragedy, challenged by daredevils, lures five young men from the world they know into the mysterious Niagara Gorge. After an encounter with the mighty Falls, they emerge in a struggle of life and death with a Niagara they never knew existed.
