The Incrementalists are a secret society of two hundred people with an unbroken lineage reaching back forty thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, communicate with one another across nations and time, and have a very modest mission: to make the world better, a little bit at a time.
"Fireworks in the Rain" tells an original story not found in the novel but featuring some of the same characters. It serves as an equally beguiling introduction to these mysterious people...and to how they work their small but consequential changes on the modern world.

The earth is on the brink of war. Vicious, blood-thirsty vamps roam the lands. The Ancients are ready to claim what they believe is theirs. And the world's one savior, Eden, is fighting dark forces that live within her - and threaten to tear her apart. And when an long-lost soul returns in the form of a rival, Eden must become the heroine of her time...if she is to save the world and those she loves, once and for all.
After visiting the quarantined planet Glemux against his will, Doogan wants nothing more than to put the strange world behind him, fix his computer girlfriend, and find the bastard who sent him there. But the espionage wing of the Empire has something else in mind. A planet has broken out of its quarantine, sent dark ships into space and brought magic with them.
Drafted as a de facto expert, Doogan returns to Glemux to consult the only real experts he knows, the Dúranaki T'vance and his magically adept friends, unwittingly entangling them in a conflict that threatens the very fabric of civilization.
But as any Dúranaki will tell you, there isn't a conflict that can't be resolved with a few strategic murders.
Shadow dreamed of nothing but leaving prison and starting a new life. But the day before his release, his wife and best friend are killed in an accident. On the plane home to the funeral, he meets Mr. Wednesday—a beguiling stranger who seems to know everything about him. A trickster and rogue, Mr. Wednesday offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. With nowhere left to go, Shadow accepts, and soon learns that his role in Mr. Wednesday’s schemes will be far more dangerous and dark than he could have ever imagined. For beneath the placid surface of everyday life a war is being fought —and the prize is the very soul of America.
Ejected from his homeland, T'vance assumes a western name and explores a world few Dúranaki ever see. He soon finds himself in the middle of a conflict that threatens not only the strange land he visits, but casts a spectre of doom even on his own homeland.
Five short stories chronicle his journeys.
When Owen Pitt and the rest of the Monster Hunter International crew are called away to mount a month’s-long rescue mission in a monster-infested nightmare dimension, Julie Shackleford—Owen’s wife and descendant of MHI founder Bubba Shackleford—is left behind. Her task: hold down the fort and take care of her new baby son Ray. Julie’s devoted to the little guy, but the slow pace of office work and maternity leave are starting to get to her. But when a routine field call brings her face-to-face with an unspeakable evil calling itself Brother Death, she’ll get more excitement than she ever hoped for.
Julie is the Guardian of a powerful ancient artifact known as the Kamaresh Yar, and Brother Death wants it. In the wrong hands, it could destroy reality as we know it. Julie would die before giving it up.
Then Ray goes missing, taken by Brother Death. The price for his safe return: the Kamaresh Yar. If Julie doesn’t hand over the artifact it means death—or worse—for baby Ray. With no other choice left to her, Julie agrees to Brother Death’s demands. But when you’re dealing with an ancient evil, the devil is in the details.
To reclaim her son, Julie Shackleford will have to fight her way through necromantic death cults, child-stealing monsters, and worse. And she’ll have to do it all before Brother Death can unleash the Kamaresh Yar.
It’s one woman against an army of monsters. But Julie Shackleford is no ordinary woman—she’s one tough mother!
