Blindsighted, by Karin Slaughter. William Morrow. 310 pages. $25. When evil wears a familiar face of a neighbor, a friend, someone you see on a nearly daily basis, the violation and the destruction of safety is overwhelming. That's the premise author Karin Slaughter tackles in her excellently plotted debut Blindsighted. Slaughter provides a new synonym for terror while charming the reader with vivid characters. It can be, at times, unflinchingly graphic, but the author never stoops to gratuitous violence.

"Wildwood Boys, " by James Carlos Blake. William Morrow. 384 pages. $24. James Carlos Blake's new novel is an old-fashioned tale of the frontier during the Civil War. Whether it describes pleasure or horror, the prose here is plain, laconic -- perfectly suited to a world of harsh necessity and little ornament. Only in the descriptions of nature does Blake embellish. Blake drives home his points with a sledgehammer. But, in this case, that may be the best tool, for a sledgehammer delivers great force.

"The Sugar House," by Laura Lippman (William Morrow, 320 pages, $24). Laura Lippman is a Sun reporter, a treasured colleague and a serial mysterian, This is her fifth intricated Baltimore-based, newspaper-tinted whodunit. There is no way that appears on these pages -- by me or anyone else -- is likely to be taken as coldly objective. But I shall tell you this: The earlier Tess Monaghan mysteries have been vastly and justly lauded, and I found this one at least as strong and attention devouring as its predecessors.

Forget everything you ever learned about antipasto. Such as it should come before the meal, or it should be served hot or cold. Or it always includes a slice of salami, a chunk of provolone and an anchovy or two.All that has changed.Antipasti can now be the whole meal. They can be served at room temperature. Any food can go on the antipasto table: meat, cheese, fish, eggs, rice, beans, grains. And always lots and lots of vegetables."Antipasto is perfect for making ahead and serving to company," says Michele Scicolone, whose book "The Antipasto Table" (William Morrow and Co.; $18.95)

Mick's abandoned wife and daughter became outcasts who could barely afford food.

Now and Forever By Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 I have had the pleasure of listening to Ray Bradbury for more than 40 years - in speeches, interviews and late-night conversations over a glass of wine. His energy and exuberance rarely falter, and listeners almost always go away inspired. That first afternoon in 1964 in his Wilshire Boulevard office, we sat on the floor and played with some of the same "toys" he still plays with today in the basement of his home: miniature dinosaurs and spaceships, Bullwinkle Moose and comic books of every description.

Farewell Summer Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 "Is death being on a ship sailing and all your folks left back on the shore?" asks 13-year-old Doug of his grandfather in Ray Bradbury's latest, Farewell Summer. "That's about it, Doug," replies the grandfather - and in Doug's head "the storm began." It's the storm of adolescence, the turmoil of loss, and it hangs low over Farewell Summer, Bradbury's long-delayed follow-up to his 1957 semi-autobiographical Dandelion Wine, which featured a 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding in a handful of short stories that read like miniatures of intricate clockwork, each perfectly machined and chiming with the cogs and gears of idiosyncratic characters, building into a contraption that was as much a time machine as the mysterious creation that lived in the garage of a town denizen.
