In the street, up there, was an old, a very old house - it was almost three hundred years old, for that might be known by reading the great beam on which the date of the year was carved: together with tulips and hop-binds, there were whole verses spelled as in former times, and over every window was a distorted face cut out in the beam. The one story stood forward a great way over the other; and directly under the eaves was a leaden spout with a dragon´s head; the rain-water should have run out of the mouth, but it ran out of the belly, for there was a hole in the spout... 1.

From the minds of multi-million selling suspense authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes House, an epic supernatural thriller that gives a new meaning to the phrase ´´haunted house´´. In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods. They seek refuge in an old house that´s been vacated for years, or so they think. They soon discover that others are dwelling in the lower level of the house, and they don´t take kindly to visitors. With danger present in the house, they try to leave, but the house won´t let them. Worse, they soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer: He claims to have killed God and now demands more dead bodies. The characters come to realize that the house, while real, mirrors their own heart and soul, and unless each can defeat the evil within, the evil in the house will surely claim them. House is a modern tale that will have readers searching their own spiritual pulse long after they reach the last page. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker.

The Gray House is an astounding tale of how what others understand as liabilities can be leveraged into strengths. Bound to wheelchairs and dependent on prosthetic limbs, the physically disabled students living in the House are overlooked by the Outsides. Not that it matters to anyone living in the House, a hulking old structure that its residents know is alive. From the corridors and crawl spaces to the classrooms and dorms, the House is full of tribes, tinctures, scared teachers, and laws - all seen and understood through a prismatic array of teenagers´ eyes. But student deaths and mounting pressure from the Outsides put the time-defying order of the House in danger. As the tribe leaders struggle to maintain power, they defer to the awesome power of the House, attempting to make it through days and nights that pass in ways that clocks and watches cannot record. 1.

Sherry Lincoln´s childhood home had sat next to the Brentwood Library for 42 years. Each time she visited the library, she always took a moment to reminisce and inspect it for changes as the house embraced new owners. In 2013, she noticed something peculiar: her house was gone. Puzzled and saddened, she inquired at the library, hoping someone would have information about why her house was ´´missing´´. Not only had the librarian heard, but she had been a part of the deconstruction effort, which was to provide land for the expansion of the library. Still saddened, but now wanting to hear more of the story, she contacted Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, MO, the organization that recycled every piece of the house, and learned that her house was not gone - it was everywhere, piece by piece, becoming the homes of others. 1.
