SYNOPSIS  

In Naming of Parts, Jack and his family fled the zombie plague to find his sister. Jack’s mother died, and his sister was already infected. Grief-stricken, alone, Jack and his father headed for the coast.
In Changing of Faces, were-creatures attacked the beached cruise liner which they had dared call home. Jack’s father was swept out to sea in a life-raft, and Jack lay dying in the sands.
Now, the world has moved on. The few people who remain huddle in small communities or wander the landscape as Walkers.  Mad, murderous wraiths haunt the overgrown towns.  When Jack hears rumours of his father, he embarks on one final journey to reunite what is left of his family.
Moving, melancholy, terrifying, Shifting of Veils completes the Apocalypse Trilogy in chilling form.

White Fangs – Secret Journeys of Jack London book 3

October 12th, 1999 • Posted in Library, Novels |

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.

Still Life

October 12th, 1999 • Posted in Novellas |

Availability:-  The book is available as either a limited signed Hardback Edition of 125 copies  or a paperback edition of 100 copies.  You can order direct from Spectral Press here.

 

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.
