New releases

“Fear Collector” by Gregg Olsen (Kensington, $9.99). Police detective Stacia O’Hare Alexander, whose older sister may have been a victim of real-life serial killer Ted Bundy, tracks a psychopath who has an obsession with Bundy.

“Phlogiston” by Dennis Caswell (Floating Bridge Press, $12). This poetry collection is the first from Caswell, who lives outside Woodinville. The collection, named for a 17th-century term for a hypothesized element of fire, addresses all sorts of life’s elements, from God and the Oort cloud to the beauty of freckles.

“Candy Experiments” by Loralee Leavitt (Andrews McMeel Publishing, $14.99). Learn how to make a marshmallow submarine, defy gravity with cotton-candy slime and create a candy eruption with this book by a Kirkland author. All 70 experiments take cavity-creating substances and put them to good work, teaching kids basic science principles.

Starting with local pioneers of jazz culture, this book focuses on jazz’s century-long history in Bellingham, known as “the city of subdued excitement,” and Whatcom County.
