  • In 1945, Hitler unleashes the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance. Hoke, an American pilot and one of a tiny minority with a rare blood group unaffected by the deadly disease, has survived among the debris and dead of London for three years. Now, in '48, a slow-dying group of Fascist Blackshirts believe their  only hope is a complete blood transfusion from one of Hoke's kind. They  literally want his blood. Running for his life, Hoke is rescued by other survivors and they are pursued  through London's ravaged streets and historic landmarks, reaching a dramatic, explosive climax at the top of the Tower Bridge.
  • Many years ago, Hubert Marsten - wealthy eccentric of 'Salem's Lot - blasted his wife with a shotgun then hanged himself. For decades, local kids dared and double-dared each other to go into the abandoned house. But now the old Marsten house is coming alive again, in the most awful of ways.  Its infection begins to spread through the little town, to manifest in the most unspeakable of ways until practically no-one is human any longer.  Ben Mears, writer, and his eleven year old charge Mark, escape the horror, only to have to return and put a stop to it once and for all - if they can.

  • According to statistics, only 10% of the world's population has seen a ghost or experienced something supernatural. What lends substance to this small number is that it is 10% of each generation. Thus, over the millennia, many millions of people have encountered  haunts of one sort or another, and it is this rather formidable number that makes the phenomenon believable. What makes them unbelievable is the sceptical 90% and it is between these two disparate hordes - living and dead - that the debate has raged for thousands of years. In this volume there are well known cases - Borley Rectory, the most haunted house in England, the Phantom Battle of Edgehill, the Drummer of Tedworth - but also lesser known occurrences, such as the late Nelly Butler and the Dark Lady of Bognor Regis.  There are also chapters on poltergeists, non-human apparitions, spirit voices and demons.
  • Contains interpretations for the prophecies of Nostradamus, analyses of the Atlantis prophecies contained in the Great Pyramid, the long-secret details of the Fatima visions and much more.
  • Melanie Conway is a pale and lovely violinist who has strange visions of death. When she collapses during a concert her boyfriend Bodie is on hand to hear her fearful pronouncements of  disaster. Penelope Conway is even more stunning than her sister but her looks get her into trouble. Although she takes herself seriously as a writer, men seem only impressed by her beauty. The last thing she needs is a series of obscene phone calls. Captivated by the two alluring sisters, Bodie is drawn deep into a mystery that's fired by sex and haunted by blood.

  • Something is happening to the children of Eastbury. Something that causes healthy babies to turn cold in their cribs - and strikes at the heart of every parent's darkest fears. Something is taking the children one by one. An entire town waits on the edge of panic.  There must be a reason...
