"Long writes with graphic glee." -- Tacoma News Tribune

THIS IS AN UPDATED ZOMBIE WILSON DIARIES - The book has added content and art. Enjoy!

It should have been the perfect vacation. A beautiful island without a soul in sight. Blue sea so clear I can see the reef. Palm trees swaying in the wind, and a girl with barely a scrap of clothing on.

There is only one problem. She is a zombie and she wants to eat me.

That's right. My only companion is a creature with a hunger for human flesh. I should bash in her brains and toss her in the ocean but I don't have a volleyball to talk to.

All I have is this diary and my own Zombie-Wilson.

Includes a sample of The Zombie Wilson Diaries 2: More Coconuts.

"The author has an exceptional story on his hands that I could see making it to the big screen." - Rob Slaven, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer

We all have nightmares, but not all of us have to live them. Johnathon Clarke did. His bullies beat him. They humiliated him. They stole his life. So at the age of 17 he took it away with a bullet from a gun.

In Hell John finds himself working out his existence in the mailroom, until he's given the promotion he died for--he becomes the forger of nightmares, the giver of bad dreams.

With his new position, John makes his assignments feel the fear he's felt his entire existence. He does this until he's assigned a young girl named Danielle. Danielle's not much younger than John was, and the circumstances surrounding why she's been assigned are troubling. They're troubling because he disagrees. Now John must decide between continuing this life of torture and scares, or using this dark gift for something else, something that could help this girl who needs him.

DESCRIPTION:

The doorbell rang, the chime cutting through the house like an alarm bell, making her jump. It was too early, and even though Halloween was in full swing outside she had not expected any callers.
They all avoided even looking at her home nowadays.
Wiping, her tears away she stepped into the hall, which ran the length of the house. Her front door was as black as tar after its new coat. It stood at the end of the hall, its impersonal freshness like a foreboding omen.
Jane drew to it slowly, reaching for the gold handle with caution.

It's Halloween. For the residents of Denison Street that means face paint, costumes and swapping horror stories. Or at least it used to be.

Last year Logan Conway went missing while Trick Or Treating. The police have no clues, no suspects and no leads.

Some say The Reaper Man did it.

Others say he's an old wive's tale. Logan's mother, Jane, disagrees. So much so that she's invited him back again.

Trick or Treat is perfect for fans of works by Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Shirley Jackson, and Mike Mignola.

One house on Fisher Street is different to all the others. Protected by a state-of-the-art security system, this particular house is clearly owned by someone who has a lot of money. Somebody definitely lives there, yet he never leaves the property. He lives all alone, adhering to a strict routine, seemingly oblivious to the rest of the world.

Paula has already told her boyfriend Ryan that they're leaving town, and that they have to put their criminal activities in the past. When they're offered the chance to help break into the house on Fisher Street, however, they find themselves tempted by the prospect of one final payday. If the rumors about the house are true, they could make enough money to start their new lives with a bang. And the plan is so good, so airtight, that nobody has to get hurt.

By the time they realize their mistake, Paula, Ryan and Davey are in a trap from which no-one has ever escaped before.

Edward Van Dorsey is far from defenseless. Obsessed with his family's military history, Edward needs fresh victims for his hideous games. All he wants is to show the world that the Van Dorsey family can rise again and reclaim its position as one of the most powerful forces in the world. And while he waits for an opportunity to really show his strength, he's more than happy to hone his skills by taking out three helpless intruders.

The House on Fisher Street is a horror novel about a girl who wants a fresh start, a man who wants to bring back the glory days, and a house that hides all manner of dark secrets.

Midnight. Some call it the witching hour. Others call it the devil's hour. Here in the graveyard, midnight is a very special time. It is a time when ghostly spirits are at their strongest, when the veil between our world and theirs is at its thinnest. Legend has it, that while most of the world is asleep, the lack of prayers allow the spirits to communicate under the cover of darkness, among the headstones, their whispers rustling in the leaves of the old oak trees. But if you're here in the graveyard, you can tell yourself it's just the wind, that the moonlight is playing tricks on your eyes, that it's only the swirling mist you see. But when you hear the graveyard gate clang shut, the dead have something to say. Here are their stories…
