  • Martie Rhodes, happily married, successful video game designer, is a compassionate friend to agoraphobic Susan, who she accompanies to therapy each week. The experience, though grim, has been a bond between the two women. Then Martie experiences an irrational fear of her own. She feels a brief, disquieting fear of - her shadow. There is something twisted in it, something not right. Other anxiety attacks ensure until Martie finds she is the victim of the rarest of all phobias known: autophobia, fear of oneself. Martie's life changes radically and her future looks dark.  Her husband Dusty loves her and is desperate to understand the nature and cause of her autophobia. But as Dusty comes closer to the terrible truth, he begins to exhibit symptoms of a psychological disorder, even more unusual and terrible than that which afflicts Martie.

  • Wrapped in noxious fog, it glided silently over the South Carolina countryside on a rampage of terror and death. Awakened by jack hammers and steam shovels, it could not be killed, for it was already dead; it could not be stopped, for it was invincible; it could not be satisfied, for its lust was boundless. It was ultimate terror that lurked within the blood mist.
  • There is a house called Neath that holds a dark and terrible secret. In that house, there is a psychic called Kline who is part of its secret. The Keeper is guardian of the house, of the psychic, and of the secret. But now an outsider must protect them from a terrible danger. Halloran will combat men who thrive on physical corruptions; he will find love of a perverse nature; he will confront his soul's own darkness. And eventually he will discover the horrific and awesome secret of the Sepulchre.
  • High society and the desires of the rich are usually satisfied on the tiny Caribbean island of Mill Walk.  But Tom Pasmore has a boyish yen to play detective, and he befriends his neighbour Lamont, who was once a renowned amateur sleuth.  But Tom's passion for murder cases is making waves - for Mill Walk is a place where murders are tidied up like so much litter, and some very powerful people prefer it that way.  The 1925 murder of Jeanine Thielman at Eagle Lake is Tom's pet fascination and when Tom gets a chance to have a holiday there, he succeeds in annoying a lot of people very rapidly.  His love affair with Sarah, who is already earmarked for marriage to a son of Mill Walk's most powerful family is bad enough.  But when Tom starts his investigation into the Thielman murder, he is in real danger of uncovering the dark secrets of those who own and run Mill Walk.

  • Ashton wasn't a big important town, yet it was here that three very different characters would face the hardest tests of their lives.  Marshall, an ex-city newspaper editor with an eye for a story and a nose for something rotten; Hank, the young pastor of a small church in danger of tearing itself apart and Tal, captain of the angelic warriors summoned to make a stand against an encroaching tide of evil.  They had to face a callous, clever, sleepless enemy and they would need each other more than would dare to believe. Cover art by Vic Mitchell.

  • In ancient times it was a pagan altar, washed by the blood of human sacrifice.  Then it was hidden for centuries until it was possessed by a spirit.  Spirit and stone fused - to take on the shape of an angel. The Bishop of Norwich was awed.  This twelve foot perfectly carved angel must surely be a miracle, and he duly installed it with pomp and ceremony in his new cathedral.  Then the disappearances started.  An angel, certainly, but not for the forces of good.  Abaddon - the Angel of the Pit - has entered his effigy and he lies in the heart of Norwich Cathedral, his terrible power building day by day.

  • 'I take an innocent of your people to sacrifice for all the innocents you have murdered. The Innocent will go with all those other Innocents into the spirit nation.  Thus will earth and sky balance.' The note was left at Cedar Cabin in Washington State. The Innocent was thirteen, the son of a senior government official who could summon up all the white man's power. The Indian who took the boy and carried him deep into the forest wilderness was filled with the power of his people's ancestral spirits. This was no ordinary manhunt - it was  a struggle between two worlds; the seen and the unseen.
