  • Wentworth is just a small friendly town where the Carver kids bicker over sweets and writer Johnny Marinville is about the only one who minds his own business. On Poplar Street it's a normal summer day:  lawnmowers humming, frisbees flying and barbecues being readied. But for young Cary Ripton on his paper round, it won't be a normal day. He notices something weird about the way Audrey Wyler is standing inside the glass door - and there's always been something creepy about her nephew, Poplar Street's best kept secret. So he doesn't see the chrome red van idling up the hill. Soon it will begin to roll, the killing will begin and the Regulators will arrive in force. And when night falls, the residents of Poplar Street will find themselves in a wasteland of devastation and despair...Cover art by Chris Moore.

  • He had been Paul Noakes, who had learnt the secret of reincarnation in the teeming slums of 18th century London. For 200 years, he used his knowledge to return and to kill. In England and America, in peace time and in war, his intent was always evil. Now, he has returned to London and this time his mission is revenge - on all those who had brought him to justice in previous lives. As news of a particularly vicious serial killer begins to spread throughout the police forces on both sides of the Atlantic, Amy Halliday is brought in from the FBI computer records office to help track him down. Unbelievably, she finds the killer's prints match with those of a dead man. And in a race against time, as the killer prepares to strike again, she realises that not even death will save her from this man. Cover photo by Tony Stone.
  • America, 2025:  In the eyes of the Government, the poor, the working class are a nuisance, easy to keep controlled with free cigarettes and free television. In the eyes of the rich, the working class are a disposable commodity. It's the day of the ultimate reality game show and the poor line up eagerly at the Games Headquarters, hoping to get accepted as contestants on the big money games.  The biggest of them all is The Running Man. Ben Richards, out of work, can't stand the sight of his little girl's battle to stay alive and his wife's desperation. He is accepted for this cruel game show. The rules are simple: stay alive and stay ahead of Evan McCone and his Hunters for 30 days.  For every hour Richards is at large,  he wins $100.00 New dollars.  He has a beginning stake of $4800.00 New dollars. And the big prize - make it through the 30 days, and it's one billion New dollars.  But Richards isn't just after the money - he's out to bring down the system and everyone in it - if he can.
  • Santaroga seemed to be nothing more than a prosperous farm community. But there was something - different - about Santaroga. There was no juvenile delinquency, or any crime at all. Outsiders found no house for sale or rent in this valley, and no one ever moved out. No one bought cigarettes in Santaroga. No cheese, wine, beer or produce from outside the valley could be sold there. The list went on and on and grew stranger and stranger. Maybe Santaroga was the last outpost of American individualism. Maybe they were just a bunch of religious kooks...or maybe there was something extraordinary at work in Santaroga. Something far more disturbing than anyone could imagine. Cover art by Jan Parker.
