Synopsis:

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters.  But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation.  Then on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell – and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.

When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that ther was more than timonite deep in the caverns.  There was evil, hibernating – and waiting for suitable prey.

Hoop and his associates uncover a next of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on new meaning.  Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviours…

Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

Publisher:- Daring Greatly Corporation

Availability:- Ebook only

Kindle UK - Kindle US

Synopsis:

The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own real-life adventures. But there are some parts of his life that have remained hidden for many years, things even he couldn’t set down in writing. Terrifying, mysterious, bizarre, and magical — these are the Secret Journeys of Jack London.

Returning to the Yukon with his love Sabine in an attempt to shed light on her mysterious past, Jack is accompanied by several werewolf pirates, and followed by their brutal ex-captain, Ghost. But that great, cold land has fallen under the shadow of a new, terrible threat –– great beasts that relish the taste of human blood. It is up to Jack, his friends, and the trail-hardened Callie King to confront the danger. But these monsters are terrible and powerful, and they are forced to join forces with the dreadful tree-spirit Lesya for any chance at surviving.

This final installment in the trilogy of adventures of the young Jack London is a masterpiece of tension and emotion. Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon have crafted a tale for readers of all ages, an action-packed, romantic, and suspenseful descent into the darkest desires of men and beasts and the hell that awaits them.

Synopsis:

Jack and his friends are in a race against time to save the remaining inhabitants of a post apocalyptic London from a nuclear bomb.
Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the rest of the world, protected by a large force of soldiers (known as Choppers) while the rest of Britain believe that their ex-capital is a toxic, uninhabited wasteland. But that’s not true. Jack and his friends know that the truth is very different–and incredible: the few remaining survivors in London are changing; developing strange, fantastic powers; evolving. And the Chopper force guarding London is treating the ruined city as its own experimental ground.
Now, Jack’s powers are growing. His friend Lucy-Anne’s powers are developing too, and Nomad–that mysterious woman who started it all–is close by. But the Choppers have initiated their final safeguard–a huge nuclear bomb that will wipe out London, and everyone still within its boundaries. Jack and his friends must spread the news of the bomb and save everyone they can. Before that can happen, Jack must face his father, the deadly Reaper, in their final showdown.

Synopsis:

Jenni’s husband was part of the Road of Souls––his flesh swarmed by ants and pecked by rooks, bones crushed to powder by wheels of dread––and yet she still saw him in the pool.

 The incursion has been and gone, the war is over, and the enemy is in the land, remote and ambiguous.  The village outskirts are guarded by vicious beasts, making escape impossible.  The village itself is controlled by the Finks, human servants to the enemy––brutal, callous, almost untouchable. 

Everything is less than it was before… time seems to move slower, the population is much denuded, and life itself seems to hold little purpose.  This is not living, it’s existing.

But in a subjugated population, there is always resistance. 

For Jenni, the happiest part of this new life is visiting the pool in the woods, seeing her dead husband within, and sharing memories of happier times.  It calms her and makes her feel alive.

But the resistance comes to her for help. 

And when her dead husband tells her it is time to fight, Jenni’s life is destined for a shattering change.

A new novel set in the Dawn of the Jedi era currently being explored by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema in their fantastic comic series

Synopsis:

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force—and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.

Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key—risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved—and whose life she must now fear.

Summary

The Hunger Games meets the X-Men in an exciting postapocalyptic debut

Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the world, protected by a military force known as Choppers. The rest of Britain believes that the city is now a toxic, uninhabited wasteland.

But Jack and his friends—some of whom lost family on what has become known as Doomsday—know that the reality is very different. At great risk, they have been gathering evidence about what is really happening in London—and it is incredible.

Because the handful of London’s survivors are changing. Developing strange, fantastic powers. Evolving.

Upon discovering that his mother is still alive inside London, Jack, his sister, and their three friends sneak into a city in ruins. Vast swathes have been bombed flat. Choppers cruise the streets, looking for survivors to experiment upon. The toxic city is filled with wonders and dangers that will challenge Jack and his friends… and perhaps kill them. But Jack knows that the truth must be revealed to the outside world or every survivor will die.

Summary

From Beacon Hill to Southie, historic Boston is a town of vibrant neighborhoods knit into a seamless whole. But as Jim Banks and Trix Newcomb learn in a terrifying instant, it is also a city divided—split into three separate versions of itself by a mad magician once tasked with its protection. Jim is happily married to Jenny, with whom he has a young daughter, Holly. Trix is Jenny’s best friend, practically a member of the family—although she has secretly been in love with Jenny for years. Then Jenny and Holly inexplicably disappear—and leave behind a Boston in which they never existed. Only Jim and Trix remember them. Only Jim and Trix can bring them back.
With the help of Boston’s Oracle, an elderly woman with magical powers, Jim and Trix travel between the fractured cities, for that is where Jenny and Holly have gone. But more is at stake than one family’s happiness. If Jim and Trix should fail, the spell holding the separate Bostons apart will fail too, and the cities will reintegrate in a cataclysmic implosion. Someone, it seems, wants just that. Someone with deadly shadow men at their disposal.

Summary

The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own real-life adventures. But there are some parts of his life that have remained hidden for many years, things even he couldn’t set down in writing. Terrifying, mysterious, bizarre, and magical—these are the Secret Journeys of Jack London.

Clinging to life after he is captured in an attack by savage pirates, Jack is unprepared for what he faces at the hands of the crew and their charismatic, murderous captain, Ghost. For these mariners are not mortal men but hungry beasts chasing gold and death across the North Pacific. Jack’s only hope lies with Sabine—a sad, sultry captive of Ghost’s insatiable hunger. But on these waters, nothing is as it seems, and Sabine may be hiding dangerous secrets of her own.

The second installment in the adventures of the young Jack London is a masterpiece of tension and emotion. Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon, along with illustrator Greg Ruth, have crafted a tale for readers of all ages, an action-packed, romantic, and suspenseful descent into the darkest desires of men and beasts and the hell that awaits them.

Summary

The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own thrilling, real-life adventures. But there are parts of his life that have remained hidden for many years, things even he couldn’t set down in writing. Terrifying, mysterious, bizarre, and magical —these are the Secret Journeys of Jack London.

We meet Jack at age seventeen, following thousands of men and women into the Yukon Territory in search of gold. For Jack, the journey holds the promise of another kind of fortune: challenge and adventure. But what he finds in the wild north is something far more sinister than he could have ever imagined: kidnapping and slavery, the murderous nature of desperate men, and, amidst it all, supernatural beasts of the wilderness that prey upon the weakness in men’s hearts. Jack’s survival will depend on his ability to quell the demons within himself as much as those without.

Synopsis

Surrounded by a vast, poisonous desert, Echo City is built upon the graveyard of its own past. Most inhabitants believe that their city and its subterranean Echoes are the whole of the world, but there are a few dissenters. Peer Nadawa is a political exile, forced to live with criminals in a ruinous slum. Gorham, once her lover, leads a ragtag band of rebels against the ruling theocracy. Nophel, a servant of that theocracy, dreams of revenge from his perch atop the city’s tallest spire. And beneath the city, a woman called Nadielle conducts macabre experiments in genetic manipulation using a science indistinguishable from sorcery. They believe there is something more beyond the endless desert . . . but what?

It is only when a stranger arrives from out of the wastes that things begin to change. Frail and amnesiac, he holds the key to a new beginning for Echo City—or perhaps to its end, for he is not the only new arrival. From the depths beneath Echo City, something ancient and deadly is rising. Now Peer, Gorham, Nophel, and Nadielle msut test the limits of love and loyalty, courage and compassion, as they struggle to save a city collapsing under the weight of its own history.

When she and her lover, Nico, discover the lost library of Petrarch under the Piazza San Marco, they rejoice not only at the historical significance of the find but at the opportunity to bring worldwide attention—and much-needed funding—to their endeavors.

But that find soon leads to another, a room buried more deeply still: the fabled Chamber of Ten, where centuries ago the secret rulers of Venice, in their quest for absolute power, met to plot betrayals and murders. After entering the Chamber, Geena and Nico are thrust into the midst of an ancient feud, a deadly battle of wills and black magic that threatens to poison the city’s future with the evils of its past.

Synopsis:

Six months have passed since the end of the world, leaving a handful of survivors holed up in a Welsh manor with little to do but survive. They’ve made the best of things, planting food, drinking their way through the cellar’s wine and ale, and reminiscing about the way life used to be. But with supplies running thin, everything is about to change…

“This book is beautifully written, it is scary, thought provoking, fun and different.” – Famous Monsters of Filmland

The arrival of a stranger named Michael sheds new light on their circumstances. If the survivors can reach Cornwall, a few days’ journey south, they will find a safe haven, called Bar None, quite possibly the last bar on earth.

“…a fun, engaging, exceptionally strange and refreshingly original tale for fans of postapocalyptic fiction.” – Publishers Weekly

As they make their way across the Briitish countryside, the survivors will experience a world gone strange, where frightening beings fly high overhead, where flora and fauna press in to fill the void left by the fall of man, and, in the wreckage of civilization, where less fortunate survivors, twisted by plagues, hunger, and fear, stalk human prey.

“It’s a book I will be reading again (and again), there are so many layers here, it’s impossible to dig through them all on a first reading. No, like the beer it so beautifully describes this is a book to savour time and time again to get all the subtle nuances. Tim Lebbon goes from strength to strength in my mind, this isn’t horror writing of the highest order, this is writing of the highest order.” – Highlander’s Book Reviews

A huge collection, cover by the very excellent Les Edwards, collecting my best short fiction between 2000 and 2006 (watch out for a PS Publishing collection next year collecting fiction from 2006 to the present, including the award-winning and very hard to find The Reach of Children…)

Included here is an original novelette, The Evolutionary, and a brand new novella, Nothing HeavenlyPay the Ghost is here too (soon to be a major movie), as well as Kissing at Shadows, The Horror of the Many Faces, Body, and many others.  And to top it all off, the very excellent Joe Lansdale provides a wonderful introduction.

“I highly recommend this collection. It’s an absolute must for fans of the author’s work, and a fantastic introduction and overview for those who have not yet had the pleasure of experiencing his unique and powerful visions of things we know…and more importantly, the things we don’t know, or are afraid to know about ourselves.” - Brian Keene

“During a 15-year career, award-winning horror author Lebbon has received many alms of praise. But perhaps none are more emphatic than the words of genre colleague Joe R. Lansdale, who, in introducing this collection, calls Lebbon a “magical and damned great writer.” The 19 tales sumptuously showcased here make a compelling case that Lansdale is right on target. In the title story, a despondent alcoholic learns the whereabouts of his long-lost daughter from a series of portrait paintings that transfer intimate moments from the lives of their subjects. The father of an abducted child in “Pay the Ghost” comes face-to-face with the ghoul behind the abduction on a genuinely haunting Halloween night. “Old Light” recounts the fate of a man given an ancient torchlight that shines on a sometimes unwelcome future. Lebbon’s prodigious gifts include a compelling narrative voice and an uncanny understanding of the human psyche. This first-rate collection is guaranteed to win new fans and provide older ones with much to savor.”

What if you were given a map to a magic that could change the worst moment of your life…for a price?

From two all-stars of dark fantasy, Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon, coauthors of Mind the Gap, comes this terrifying new thriller of magic and dangerous passions, where an ordinary man searches the magical landscape of an extraordinary city for the chance of a lifetime.

Barely six months after leaving New Orleans, history professor Max Corbett is returning to a place he hardly recognizes. The girl he’d loved—and lost—is dead, and the once-enchanted city has been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Max has not thought much beyond Gabrielle’s funeral—until a strange old man offers him a map, and an insane proposition . . .

“Forget all the stories about magic you think you know. . . .”

It looks like an ordinary tourist map, but the old man claims that it is marked with a trail of magical moments from New Orleans’s history that just might open a door to the past. But it is a journey fraught with peril as Max begins to uncover dark secrets about both his dead love and the city he never really got to know. How is Gabrielle linked to an evil group from the city’s past? And can Max evade them long enough to turn back the clock and give Gabrielle one last chance at life?

REVIEWS

‘Urban realism meets dark fantasy in this spine-tingling second collaboration between authors Golden and Lebbon (after 2008’s Mind the Gap) as they merge the repercussions of Hurricane Katrina with New Orleans’ terrifying ghostly past.’  Publishers Weekly, starred review

‘A haunting, yet inspirational novel that could resonate very strongly with readers, “The Map of Moments” is undeniable proof that Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon make a great team together…’  Fantasy Book Critic

The Reach of Children

Due to the publisher Humdrumming’s recent demise, this Limited Edition Hardback is now SOLD OUT

Daniel is ten years old when his mother dies. She dies young, and with so much left to give. He does not understand. He cannot let her go.

After the funeral, his father begins talking to a large wooden box that suddenly appears beneath his bed. And when Daniel whispers to the box one day when his father goes out … it answers back.

It’s a voice he does not know. But this voice knows so much.

“Lebbon has written one of the best and most emotionally convincing stories about death that I have ever read” – Michael Marshall Smith

“…a precisely written and moving account of love and redemption” – Black Static

“…emotional and thought-provoking…” – Interzone

“With The Reach of Children, (Lebbon) has exceeded even his former astounding works.” – Horror World

“This is an important book, it will win things.  This is a given. More importantly though – and I honestly think Lebbon would share my opinion on this – this is a book that people will get evangelical about.  They will insist their friends read it.  They will get increasingly frustrated by people who claim to have not had the time or the money.” – The Hub

30 years ago…

Sixteen-year-old Scott sees his first ghost.

Where is the Chord of Souls? it demands, then abruptly flees, leaving the horror of that fateful day indelibly tattooed on his Scott’s young mind.

He will never forget that day. Because the ghost was his grandfather’s friend… and his grandfather had murdered his friend just ten days before.

Now…

Thirty years after his grandfather’s suicide, Scott is stunned to suddenly receive a letter from the old man which talks of an ancient book of apocalyptic power: The Chord of Souls.

The letter’s arrival quickly heralds a deluge of supernatural events that has Scott teetering on the precipice of sanity and salvation: his wife is kidnapped, ghosts besiege his home and his mind, and immortality dons the guise of a beautiful woman…

British Invasion (edited with Christopher Golden and Jim Moore)

golden05Published Cemetery Dance Publication, 2009

Availability:

They’ve invaded before, sending their best and brightest to transform popular music for all time. This time, they’re leaving the music behind and focusing on words. The British Invasion has begun again, in a collection of twenty-one unforgettable stories of horror and the dark fantastic.

From the birthplace of horror fiction, the land where writers first dreamed up the icons that shaped the field we know today Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, the vile Mr. Hyde and more. You think you know desperation? Discover a literary tradition born from centuries of violence, pain, and suffering, distilled through the veneer of civility, and twisted by the reign of tyrants and kings.

You think you know fear?

From creeping dread to hideous humor, from quiet terror to brutal horror, from mad speculation to unspeakable truth, the twenty-one tales here represent the best that the U.K. has to offer. The rising stars and the masters of British horror have joined together.

The British Invasion has begun.

Reviews & Praise:

“From Gord Rollo’s transcendentally eerie tale of a comatose young boy’s revenge (“Lost in a Field of Paper Flowers”) to Mark Morris’s cautionary tale about a pair of unorthodox vampires (“Puppies for Sale”), the 21 original stories in this anthology establish the strength of British horror writers. Contributors include Ramsey Campbell, Sarah Pinborough, Conrad Williams, Peter Crowther, and other veterans and new authors. A strong collection of contemporary horror from across the pond…”
Library Journal

“The British may not have invented the modern horror story, as the editors of this all-original anthology claim, but the 21 stories they’ve selected prove that contemporary U.K. writers are infiltrating American publishing markets with some of the most provocative horror fiction written today. Refreshingly devoid of genre clichés, these subtle tales offer ambiguously supernatural horrors from the dramas and traumas of everyday life. Nicholas Royle, in The Goldfinch, gives chronic illness an unsettling spin by objectifying a man’s cancer as a relentless shadowy stalker. Mark Morris’s Puppies for Sale presents a nuclear family’s gradual implosion as a consequence of a malignant supernatural influence that may be a complete figment of the distraught father’s mind. In Conrad Williams’s Slitten Gorge, the disconnect between the unpolluted natural world and the protagonist’s industrially despoiled environment achieves an aura of otherworldly horror. The book’s title notwithstanding, there’s nothing peculiarly British about these stories, but their authors are exceptionally articulate in the universal language of horror.”

A novel written in collaboration with Gavin Williams. This started life as a wide-ranging Lovecraftian horror novel, but it took on much more besides. The Matrix meets The X-Files with a bit of H.P. thrown into the mix; it’s a fast-moving action-horror-love-science fiction novel. There, all bases covered there I think.
