  • Beneath the Opera House in Paris, somewhere in the dark labyrinths hidden from public view, the Phantom lurks, watching and waiting.  In his crazed obsession to further the career of a beautiful young singer, he will stop at nothing - not even murder. This 75th anniversary edition contains a foreword by Peter Haining, which introduces the larger-than-life character of author Gaston Leroux and traces the history of the Phantom - its basis in fact, the novel's poor reception yet its astonishing success in the cinema and theatre.  There is also a special appendix in which a speculation links the Phantom to Sherlock Holmes.   Cover art by Mark Teague.

  • Dorian is handsome, debonair and charming, and he wants to stay that way.  In fact, he'll do anything to stay young and handsome - forever.  So when he looks at his portrait and wishes that the portrait could age in his place...He gets his wish, but with awful consequences...The tale of Dorian Gray’s gradual moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novel’s corrupting influence, he responded that there is, in fact, “a terrible moral in Dorian Gray.”
  • The ultimate horror story of a wish being granted.

  • It was for the lovely Sylvia Shane that Julian decided to set out on his quest, but it was the fascinating, dangerous Princess Oonas Shahamalek who delayed his departure. The quest was for the treasure of Cambyses, buried for more than two thousand years.  It led Julian to a night in the Tomb of the Sacred Bulls in Alexandria; to an encounter with white slavers and dope runners outside of Cairo; to a voyage up the Nile where death waited for them. It ended in the Libyan desert, five hundred miles from civilisation.

But now for the first time - suddenly, shockingly, horribly - the balance of power had shifted and war is declared - the rats are public enemy number one. Cover art by W.F. Phillipps.
