  • 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.

  • 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.
