By the feet of men
WANTED: Men and women willing to drive through the valley of the shadow of death.
The world’s population has been decimated by the Change, a chain reaction of events triggered by global warming. In Europe, governments have fallen, cities have crumbled and the wheels of production have ground to a halt. The Alps region, containing most of the continent’s remaining freshwater, has become a closed state with heavily fortified borders. Survivors cling on by trading through the Runners, truck drivers who deliver cargo and take a percentage.
Amid the ruins of central Germany, two Runners, Cassady and Ghazi, are called on to deliver medical supplies to a research base deep in the Italian desert, where scientists claim to be building a machine that could reverse the effects of the Change. Joining the pair are a ragtag collection of drivers, all of whom have something to prove. Standing in their way are starving nomads, crumbling cities, hostile weather and a rogue state hell-bent on the convoy's destruction. And there's another problem: Cassady is close to losing his nerve.
The Free World War
In this feat of imaginative writing, Matthew Frend describes a world in which the year is 2265 and the Earth's populace are a free-willed and contented utopia, unlimited in its resources, with a past found in virtually accessible simulations. One such simulation is built around General George S. Patton's car accident in 1945. From the future utopia, the simulation accesses an alternate world where General Patton had been killed and the U.S.S.R. plans to spread its tyranny throughout the post-war world - our world.
From the utopian world where Patton had survived, we follow the tumultuous events of a war to free eastern Europe and the Soviet Union itself from beneath the jackboot of communism. A war where the power of individual sacrifice makes a last-ditch effort against the corrupt totalitarian state."
Off the south of England, an old evil has been set free...
While drilling out at sea, the ill-fated crew of a rig have released something old, something that’s been waiting to return to the surface – a hive of sea sirens; Creatures that need human hosts to survive and human faces to lure people to their demise.
Kirsten Costello is a model from East London. Bored of her vacuous existence, she leaves her old life of excess behind and moves to Brighton with her cousin Simone.
After a random attack one night under Brighton Pier, Kirsten becomes the object of one of the creature's obsession. Psychically linked by its scratch, she becomes a beacon for its desire to use her body as its own and be the face they need. Always knowing where she is, constantly stalking her by night, it seems there is no way to escape.
With the help of Simone, her girlfriend Geena, and local Clairvoyant, Melissa Clarke, Kirsten must fight back against the creature, as it tries to drag her back down below into the depths, down into the Night Waves.

Unbeknownst to Will, Degas belongs to an ancient, sophisticated cult known as the Edens and believes Will to be the key to gaining otherworldly power.
As the sun sets on Good Friday, Degas orchestrates a home invasion in which Will and his baby boy, Gideon, are kidnapped, leaving Shannon to join forces with an unreliable agent from the Roman Catholic Church. While Will struggles to save other innocents from the Eden parish below the city, Shannon discovers that the cult plans to use her family for an unimaginable demonic ritual and that the Vatican may let it happen. With no one to trust but themselves, Shannon and Will must fight not only to survive but to keep their humanity intact.
