Surviving The Evacuation Book 1: London: Volume 1

Zombies. The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. No one is safe from the undead. As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The British press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic. Bill Wright, a Westminster insider and an advisor to a future Prime Minister, broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out. He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it. This is the first volume of his journal. (73,000 words)

Before You Sleep: Three Horrors

A trilogy of horror stories from the award-winning writer's first collection of short stories - SOME WILL NOT SLEEP - and an introduction to the nightmarish visions and ghastly spectres that have been disturbing the sleep of readers for years. In this book you'll find two ghost stories and a tale of ancestral demoniac horror.

In the big white house on the hill angels are said to appear . . .

When the children left the house, their toys remained . . .

A confused and vengeful presence occupies the home of a first-time buyer . . .

"The images just won't go away. You'll find yourself replaying scenes in your mind for days" - Fangoria

"Modern storytelling ... and old school terror. Very scary, highly recommended" - Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author

"One of the most subtle and powerful writers of dark fiction - a unique voice" - Michael Marshall Smith, NYT Bestselling author

The Knowing: Book One

It starts with a school shooting.

It ends with the return of an evil as ancient as the skeleton of the universe.

In the middle, normal garden-variety people must figure out how to live their everyday lives--how to survive!--after they discover that all those childhood horror stories ... well, most of them are true.

When the hot call comes over the radio: "Code Red! Active shooter at Carlisle Elementary School," Police Sergeant Jack Carpenter has one job and only one job. Find the gunman; take him out. He rushes into the school, fully armed and focused on cold, hard reality. But what happens to him in the next few hours shatters the world as he has always known it. And in the next three days, everything Jack Carpenter believes about himself, about life and reality, about good and evil and the whole nature of the universe will be challenged.

Can it possibly be true--seriously?--that invisible monsters prowl among us every day?

That there exists in the real world a winged creature more horrifying than any Hollywood-animated, computer-generated, mechanical unreality?

And that the single-minded mission of that beast--a creation of absolute, soul-less evil--is to kill Jack Carpenter?

That's crazy! Fairy-tale-science-fiction-horror-movie-bogeyman crap!

Bottom line: it flat-out cannot possibly be true.

But it is.

Interview with the Author

Q - What makes The Knowing special?

A - It's real. Some things really are unexplainable. As a paranormal thriller, The Knowing can be disturbing but it's not about zombies or vampires or people who turn into werewolves or giant bears or attack-gerbils. The characters in The Knowing are folks you could bump carts with in a small town grocery store, so when the unexplainable starts to happen to them, you realize the same thing could happen to you.

Q - Why did you write a series?

A - Because the story was too big for 1 book. Even for 2. Writing a series gave me the chance to tell a sprawling tale of spiritual warfare and dark psychic suspense that spans a quarter of a century. Something happened to these people when they were 12 years old, but every memory of that summer has been wiped from their minds.

Q - Is this Christian fiction?

A -There's no religion in it. There are scriptural realities, though, that most Christians say they believe--but really don't. Theresa Washington from The Knowing says it best: "The smartest thing Satan ever done was to get people to believe he don't exist." Some have called The Knowing dark and disturbing. I think I'd call it ... a scary story about supernatural spiritual warfare--that's mostly true.

Q - Why should readers give this book a try?

A - Because it's a paranormal thriller set in a small town that will capture your heart and mind, grab you in a reality so gripping you'll decide you can fold the towels later and the lawn will still be out there to mow tomorrow. Don't start the book at bedtime or you might still be awake at dawn.

The Turn of the Screw - Special Edition (Illustrated + Audio links)

First published in the U.S. in the anthology collection The Two Magics in 1898, Henry James's classic ghost story The Turn of the Screwhas been enthralling readers for over a century and shows no sign of losing popularity as new generations continue to discover this chilling masterpiece.



The novella's anonymous narrator is a young woman, a parson's daughter, who is engaged as governess to two seemingly innocent children at a remote English country house. What initially seems a idyllic soon turns nightmarish, as she becomes convinced that the children are consorting with a pair of malevolent spirits. These are the ghosts of former employees at Bly: a valet and a previous governess. In life, scandalously, the two of them had been discharged as illicit lovers, and their spectral visitations with the children hint at Satanism and possible sexual abuse. The book amply fulfills its pledge, laid down in the first few pages, that nothing can touch it in terms of sheer "dreadful--dreadfulness."

This edition is presented with original illustrations by Victorian artist Stella Langdale and includes links to free audio recordings of The Turn of the Screw.

Japanese Folklore The Legend of Eternal Life

Long, long ago there lived a man called Sentaro. His surname meant "Millionaire," but although he was not so rich as all that, he was still very far removed from being poor. He had inherited a small fortune from his father and lived on this, spending his time carelessly, without any serious thoughts of work, till he was about thirty-two years of age.

One day, without any reason whatsoever, the thought of death and sickness came to him. The idea of falling ill or dying made him very wretched."I should like to live," he said to himself, "till I am five or six hundred years old at least, free from all sickness. The ordinary span of a man's life is very short."

He wondered whether it were possible, by living simply and frugally henceforth, to prolong his life as long as he wished. He knew there were many stories in ancient history of emperors who had lived a thousand years, and there was a Princess of Yamato, who, it was said, lived to the age of five hundred This was the latest story of a very long life record.

Resurrection: A Zombie Novel

From prize-winning author Michael J. Totten Welcome to a world turned to ashes. Annie Starling is missing her memory of the last eight weeks-the most devastating in history. It started in Russia and went global in a matter of days, the most virulent virus the world has ever known. It's stripping its victims of every last thing that makes them human. And that's just the beginning. The other survivors are no less dangerous than the infected. She meets Lane, who stops at nothing to assert power and control over everybody who's left; Kyle, who dreams of building a new world upon the ruins of the old; Hughes, who lost the ability to feel after burying his family; and Parker, who threatens to tear himself and his companions apart. And when her memories finally return, Annie discovers a terrifying secret that could change everything-but she can't tell a soul what it is. Praise for Resurrection "For fans of "World War Z" and "The Walking Dead," Michael J. Totten's "Resurrection" is the novel you've been waiting for." - Scott William Carter, author of "Ghost Detective" "In the tradition of "The Walking Dead," Michael J. Totten delivers a must-read with "Resurrection." Action packed with a wicked twist, this is one book I couldn't put down." -Annie Reed, author of "The Patient Z Files" ""Resurrection" dragged me in from the first page, with fast-paced, suspense-filled action and multi-layered and totally believable characters. Painting a vivid and gritty picture of a post-apocalyptic Northwest, Totten puts us into the minds and emotional struggles of a group of mismatched survivors forced to band together for protection even when they're on the verge or ripping each other apart. He also wrote one of the scariest passages I've read in any horror or suspense story...so be warned if you're afraid of the dark, or water, or both." - JC Andrijeski, author of "Rook"
