View full details

Synopsis

Comprising four intriguing adult, speculative, spiritual and philosophical novellas, which contain a hint of the supernatural - though in these modern fairy or folk tales the fantastic doesn't happen in some remote fantasy world, but right here in this one, in very ordinary, almost everyday circumstances. Four tales for those who like to think about what they are reading.

The Little Dog – a story of good and evil and retribution.

Two foresters find a little dog sitting beside the forest haul-road way out in a remote part of the forest. What is the little dog doing there? As the narrator, a young Bill, tries to ascertain who is his unsavoury workmate, the little dog disappears. Then suddenly events take an unexpected turn and our young naive Bill starts to learn some awful truths.

The Golden Tup - a dreadful tale of paradise being cruelly taken by latent evil.

As the tale opens we learn from Verity that a few years previously a young couple were arrested for killing their new born baby. How could such a nice pair have done such a dreadful thing? Through a series of flashbacks she tells how they bought an old derelict farmhouse and commenced renovating it - creating their own paradise - but the felling of an old tree changed everything. Gradually their paradise was lost, their relationship fell apart and as we already know, they killed their own child. What dark secret was lurking there?

The Crow - a poignant tale of misunderstanding, dying, bitterness and blame.

A dying and embittered old Irish priest, Mad Father Patrick, recounts the school days and subsequent rise of a local councillor and of his involvement in the construction of a dam which flooded a valley. The increasingly mad tale is told with a blend of biblical quotations, philosophical musings and wild fantasy, but how does his story end and just why is the old priest so bitter?

The White Hart - a happy ghost story, if there can be such a thing!

Told by a likeable male chauvinist, bachelor and keen fell-runner, Pete Montague recalls three strange incidents which he initially thought were unconnected. The first is his encounter with a little albino deer. The second is of a chance meeting with a beautiful, but somewhat enigmatic young girl in a remote chapel. And the third ……

View full details

Synopsis

Will the New Messiah or the Anti-Christ be born?

In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO—a paranormal detective society—is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.

The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn’t undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan’s work?

Claire, Travis, and Prescott, the members of the Capuchin Trinity Team of TIO, are tasked with uncovering the truth about this unusual case and resolving the mystery of whether the Pope is carrying the new Messiah or the Antichrist, and who did it. Their job is to go beyond the physical world into the mind and the spiritual realm, discover a thousand-year-old connection, perform an exorcism, and fight the devil Zepar, while evading the villains who keep trying to assassinate them.

Synopsis

How far would you go to make things right? Ama, Mark, and Justin are about to find out.

All three have each witnessed a murder that went unpunished, and they’ve lived broken lives ever since. In recent months, their dreams have been haunted by someone who understands their pain: a Fury who survived the witch hunts of Old Salem. Three days before Halloween, she enters their dreams and summons them to be Revengers, just as she has done for a new trio of teens every year for centuries. If they abide by her seemingly simple set of rules, she promises supernatural protection while they avenge their losses.

One catch: exacting revenge means becoming killers themselves. And they don’t have much time to wrestle with the moral dilemma, as the Fury’s protection will end on the Day of the Dead. When they agree—setting in motion three bloody acts of vengeance—things begin to spiral out of control and they come to understand they are pawns in ancient game. As the Fury toys with them, they race against the clock, hoping to live more than just a few more days…

Luckily, her vampire friend, Angelique, comes to her aid. But the cult is more cunning and dangerous than even her vampire friend could handle.

One for those who like to think about what they are reading.

Thomas looks back on the events of his last term at school when his class returned to a new beautiful class teacher, a donation of stuffed animals and birds by an eccentric benefactor which he and his friends subsequently discovered weren't quite as dead as they looked, an exorcism in which a bell-jar which had contained a bat shattered, and then things, which up until then had been strange, turned to being sinister and frightening. What was true? What was the Truth? And of course, where was the bat?

Synopsis

While writing this book I placed most emphasis under writing a good story. The book is good at holding the reader engaged and at times it can be rather entertaining. It starts with an introduction to the story of Dracula, followed by the pre-story of Dracula and then the story of Dracula. Then we can begin with the actual plot line of the book.

It is a manuscript ready to be made into a movie after buying the rights from me. If you plan to make a movie and thereby buy the rights for it get in touch with me first. Since I have all the personas, drawings and pictures of all the things I have described in the book.

At the end of the book you should have two questions. First what happens next? Second why did he choose to end it off like that?

The book is written as a manuscript.

Book cover image for A TIME OF ASHES: an action-filled, genre-bending epic of survival and discovery. (Fate and the Wheel Book 1)
View full details

Synopsis

'One of the most interesting and exciting new writers to emerge north of the border since Iain Banks' - Gary Gibson, award-nominated author of Angel Stations and Stealing Light.

What do you do when the end of the world is at hand and not even a god can help you any more?

Perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, or books by Liani Taylor, China Miéville, Patrick Rothfuss, Josiah Bancroft or Peter Flannery.


Before the Corruption came, Murrin Kentle lived in a world where the largest island could be walked across in a day, and humans traded and fished in bladeships made from the bones of the gigantic and bizarre sea monsters patrolling its stormy, bottomless oceans. As a truthkeep of the Brotherhood of the First Mind, it’s been his duty to fight the decay of knowledge with religious fervour. A fervour he’s increasingly struggled to maintain.

Before the Corruption came, Sheehan hahe Seeheeli was a carefree countess of the Shi’iin. Amphibious and matriarchal, her people have maintained an uneasy coexistence with the human scholars dominating the islands. Then an emissary of the gods brings news of an impending catastrophe. Now, she and Murrin must embark on a desperate voyage in the hope of salvation, although both the subject of their search and the path they must take remain stubbornly obscure.

Before the Corruption came, a wild young man named Coll grew up in a desert town, consumed by rage over what was done to his mother. His thirst for retribution will set in motion a train of events not even the gods could fully have foretold.

Now the Corruption is here, and nothing in Murrin's world, nor any of the worlds of the Sundered Realm, will ever be the same.

By turns touching, humorous, tense and horrific, with elements of fantasy, SF and steampunk, A Time of Ashes is a thrilling and wildly imaginative tale of existential discovery: the first part of Fate and the Wheel, a beautifully written epic tale of friendship, loss, revenge, war, and survival against crushing odds.

Book 1 in Fate and the Wheel series, it has a cliffhanger.


'The rumble of the approaching fire was like something physical. It made his bones vibrate, more insistent by the second until he thought his ears would rupture. Those left on deck not preoccupied with trying to keep the rigging from flying apart watched their nemesis with pop-eyed incantations or yells of terror.'

'Chet knew this rootless, prickling sensation in the pit of his gut. How could he forget? It had consumed him that day on the dais. His first meeting with Murrin – his first real view of the man, his cognast friend Gald’s old-man scrawniness making Murrin seem even more absurdly, enduringly massive. He had seemed like something built to last forever.'


Readers are saying:

' * * * * * I loved this. It's extremely well written in a very visual style – almost cinematographic – and the characterisation is fantastic. The individuals may be flawed but they're all very relatable. I quickly got very invested in their story ... It seems like a classic quest story but although it's a page-turner there's a depth to it which hints than there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.' Suzi Baker, GoodReads July 2018

' * * * * * A marvellously clever and inventive read. Can't wait to read the next one. A total original.' Maggie Irvine, Kobo, August 2018

The Thomas's were an average, upper-class family - three lovely girls, a little boy who always seemed to be in trouble, a father lost to war, and a mother doing her best to uphold the family name in his absence. Their hilltop home was handed down for generations, and was filled with all the usual knick knacks every family accumulates with each new generation.

Years later, a young woman searching for her own family discovers she is the last remaining descendent of the Thomas's, and that she has inherited the house with the breathtaking ocean view. When she stumbles upon a box full of her lost family's belongings - little things only she could appreciate - she is enchanted.

But families collect stories, too, and the tales these little treasures have to tell will reveal a family that began tearing itself apart the night little Stanley Thomas died, with each tale more gruesome than the last.

Synopsis

*The editing mistake noted in a previous review of this book - namely a chapter appearing twice - has now been corrected. My apologies to anyone who bought this edition of the book.* Cole Jensen is a hack who makes good money writing bad books about women - until another hack comes along and usurps him, and he finds himself bankrupt and homeless. He is taken in and given a job by Constance Morrell, an icily beautiful woman who feels she owes him a favour.



Now home is a pool house at the bottom of the garden of a mansion in the Hollywood hills. There are many perks to his new living situation, but there are also drawbacks, not the least of which is being expected to entertain the odd, sinister women Constance invites to her nightly soirees. Cole's disturbing encounters with these women give him the inspiration to begin work on the novel he's always wanted to write - a social satire on the nocturnal activities of the rich and bored - but with the party games getting darker and the guest list dropping by the day, Cole must decide whether artistic integrity is really worth dying for.

The former Light-Bringer's time to rule is coming. And there's nothing humanity can do about it. Yet the Devil is prophesied to lose everything in the end. Destiny or not, the fallen Archangel has other plans.

Thus the tumultuous last stages of a conflict as old as time. Fought in this world. With the weapons and science of humanity.

But though the time of the Apocalypse is nearing, Heaven waits. And in preparation for the final conflict, the minions of Hell have started infesting the world. Corrupting humanity and stealing the heavenly spark that connects mortals to God. Unless stopped, when the end comes, most of the divine power that exists in every person will belong to the Adversary. The Serpent has no plans of losing again. With enough heavenly power, he believes that even a divine prophecy can be broken.

Against the forces of Hell, it falls to the shoulders of a few good men and women at the side of diminished angels to delay Armageddon. A retrograde action against the forces of darkness.

One of them is Keith A. North, SEAL E-6, left for dead in the sandbox. Recruited by the secretive Khamsa, an organization almost as old as recorded history, he learns how to fight against nightmares made real. Limited by rules as ancient as the struggle against Hell.

View full details

Synopsis

'One of the most interesting and exciting new writers to emerge north of the border since Iain Banks' - Gary Gibson, award-nominated author of Angel Stations and Stealing Light.

'Rudy Rucker on drugs' - BestSF

When all seems lost, do you still turn and fight?

Perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, Alastair Reynolds' Terminal World, Greg Bear's Songs of Earth and Power, and books by Iain M. Banks or China Miéville.


The Kingdom of Tys is besieged. As war rages, its neighbouring lands burn. Amidst the chaos, thrust into the role of a warrior, a wounded scholar seeks allies for a mission borne of little more than blind hope. The Corruption, however, has other plans, and its agents may be closer than anyone realizes.

In a mysterious ocean far away, Chet Karspin, Captain Jarosh Harmal and the hard-pressed crew of the bladeship Fat Chance find that they have traded death by fire for more insidious perils. As they struggle to postpone the inevitable, it becomes clear that they and their increasingly battered ship are at the mercy of forces on an unimaginable scale.

Held in the seemingly impregnable Castle of the Four Winds, ocean-dwelling sisters Sheehan and Seeli begin to appreciate that a dungeon offers a fate kinder than some of the alternatives. Yet even in the depths of despair Sheehan will find herself called upon to make decisions affecting the fates of worlds.

Part Two of the epic Fate and the Wheel series, Hunting Gods is part action thriller, part journey of existential discovery: a science fiction- and steampunk-tinged fantastic tale of loss, revenge, redemption, companionship, and endurance in the face of horrific adversity - a worthy sequel to the thrills and emotional charge of A Time of Ashes.


'The hush from the others grew expectant. Ahead, along the derelict tunnel of trunks and boughs, through a chaos of lianas and vines, he could just make out the feet of one of the statues of the cave.
Only a sprint away. He tightened his grip on his halberd’s wooden shaft. Coll was right. He couldn’t say why, but everything felt very wrong. "Where are they?" Tankentaer’s voice. "Ah gods, I cannot stand this. This is a trap, can’t you feel it?"'

'Sheehan saw his fingers close on the handle of one of his knives. The lantern was aimed straight at his head. He raised an arm to bat it away, drawing the knife. She saw the look in his eyes as he realised his mistake. His wrist smashed the glass. For a terrible, drawn-out moment the wick’s flame seemed to die...'

View full details

Synopsis

A disastrous top-secret military experiment. An amateurish foray into the boundaries of cutting-edge physics and dimensional rifts.

Now, worlds and dimensions are merging and fantasy bites our reality. 
Imagine suddenly waking up to a world merging with other realities. Dimensions where your sense of normalcy and way of life do not mean anything. Finding out that most modern inventions do not work anymore. Where your very flesh and bones are prized by monstrous predators and powerful beings the like you've never seen nor heard before. Worlds only whispered of in rare ancient texts and surreal pictographs. 

And more realities are being forcibly brought into this plane of existence. What would you do? How will you survive?

Prologue

Hello. I am Eric Weber. I am 26 years old at the time of this writing. I am with my girlfriend, Jen Stuart. It's now December 2019. I have no idea about the date. Running for your life makes you forget those things. Not that digital watches and cell phones are of any help in our situation. The assault on the town's defensive grid also brought with it that bizarre energy field which rendered modern gadgets useless. The weather outside is freezing so we're holed up in this abandoned hunting cabin and I decided to make the most of our time here by writing these notes. Or do we call them memoirs? A diary? We intend to reach another reported safe area across the border in Saskatchewan, Canada. There are other safe zones mentioned in the last report we heard but they're all too far. Hopefully, we'll make it to an existing safe zone. The list of sites was shrinking day-by-day. But the report we had was now a week old, a day before the Great Falls Defense Area fell. That's in Montana, by the way. We're lucky we got away. I really don't know if it's still valid but what other option did we have?

I am human, by the way (in case some other entity gets hold of this record). We were the dominant species on this planet until what we call the Event happened. Now, we don't know who's the top dog on this planet we call Earth.

Synopsis

Six damaged women find family and purpose while living and working on an orchard under the guidance of Jude, the man who saved them from themselves. Their faith is rewarded with the coming of a new generation, born away from the dangers and distractions of a world to which none of them care to return.

But Jude wants to create a new world, one in which mores and laws don't exist, and one which his children, The Deified, will rule.

Each of the children will be put through a series of increasingly disturbing trials that will change some of them irreversibly, and determine not only the roles they will play in the new world, but whether or not they will live to see it.

When Jude saves, innocence burns.

Synopsis

This collection of short stories and poems grew from many different sources. Some tales have been sitting in my writing files for nearly fifteen years waiting to be properly edited.
Many grew out of prompts from the people at various writing groups, and some even came from personal experience.
Some simple happened because during bouts of people watching I discovered there were short tales everywhere.
I am often asked how I can write some of my darker material when I generally am a bright and positive person.
Like most things in life, stories very quickly take on a life of their own, and if they choose to be dark, so be it. Every parent knows that some of their children will grow up happy and others will march to a totally different drummer.
So please enjoy this mad pool of stories and poems. It will be a meal with a wide variety of taste and flavor.

View full details

Synopsis

Felix receives from his late father an unusual inheritance - a laboratory of forensic analysis and preparation of the dead, and he is going to become a professional thanatoscopyst to take the business over. But at the height of his teenage years, he discovers that his inheritance is more than a mere undertaking - and includes his own extrasensory abilities, which begin to surface amidst the universe of working with the corpses. Soon he realizes that each job will be an unexpected and unusual challenge - and that breaking the rules left by his father can bring dangerous and completely unforeseen consequences...

In this first tale, Felix will come across the first really challenging work in the laboratory, the result of a brutal car accident; it is during this work that he crosses the path of beautiful and mysterious Evelyne, for whom Felix suddenly falls in love and who will bring up his hitherto unknown skills.

"The Thanatoscopyst" is a set of three short stories, which make up a prelude to the author’s next two novels: "Phaenomena" and "Felix Nähener, Thanatoscopyst".

The three stories make a brief introduction to characters from "Phaenomena", whose protagonist will be another mysterious being. "Felix Nähener, Tanatoscopista", as the title indicates, will portray the subsequent events in the life of the protagonist himself.

View full details

Synopsis

You can see yourself going down a road when you come to a crossing. One road has a sign saying “True Story of Dracula (Hardcover)” the other has “True Story of Dracula (Kindle)”. You cannot make up your mind which one to take. The hardcover version is meant for the ones who really want the experience to go along. Whereas the Kindle edition is for the ones who really do not care about the attributes but value the text, how it has been written and whether it is a good story. The hardcover version has a lot more graphical images than does the Kindle. The graphical effects that are applied to the hardcover version make you want to continue. On the Kindle it has no aura.

Comments by reviewers:
Great book that is entertaining and it was sometimes hard to put it away. I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in history, Dracula or interested in reading a good book. Anrijs

I really love this little story…… Last night I read it and now I want to say to everyone that this is a great story. Thank you MARTIN. Virginia

Dracula certainly the most chilling terrifying book ever written; it's really the best horror story in my eyes. shirley

You may have seen every Dracula movie ever made, but you do not know the real Count Dracula until such time as you have read this book. Of course, unless you have been living under a rock, you will know the general plot line, but I assure you there is a wealth of rich material buried throughout the text that is sure to excite, intrigue, and surprise you. Michael Ryan

This book is a very good read and the author wants to make it feel like you are there experiencing it together with the characters. nene
