You never truly know your neighbors, or what goes on behind closed doors. Sometimes it's better not to. Sometimes the truth is downright haunting.

Alex watches from her bedroom window as the small, secluded town of Amberton sleeps: a bright, pleasant town with a dark, disturbing secret. Helen, her foster mother, is gone all hours of the night with no explanation. The neighbors, always friendly, always smiling, are also always watching. They know something Alex doesn't. Something she shouldn't…

When three outsiders become ensnared in the town's dark conspiracies, Alex witnesses for herself the nightmare hiding in plain sight. Together, haunted by their own pasts, these outsiders threaten to unstitch the town at its rotten seams, uncovering the gruesome truth writhing beneath the surface.

DESCRIPTION:

Half-vampire Ollie inherits his uncle's detective agency in the undead town of Skullenia.

With the agency comes his uncle's staff: a zombie who can barely hold himself together, a zombie the size of a phonebox and with a single digit IQ, a mad professor, and Ronnie - who has the ability to make himself invisible.

Skullenia seems to be the last place that would need a detective agency. At least that is what Ollie thinks, until Count Jocular commissions him to help resolve a series of unexplained disappearances.

But has Ollie bitten off more than he can chew? With the help of his motley crew and some quite frankly ridiculous characters, he attempts to solve this perplexing mystery.

Praise from readers:

★★★★★ - "A hilarious escape."

★★★★★ - "This is a must-read for those who enjoy a fun, light-hearted read."

★★★★★ - "You'll grin, you'll groan, but mostly you'll laugh out loud as you follow the adventures of half-vampire Ollie who may or may not be up to solving monster mysteries. Wherewolf was too much fun."

DESCRIPTION:

'What is read cannot be unread.'

Oxford, 1935.

An exhausted nation is recovering from one Great War...and girding itself for the next one.

MR James, Britain's greatest writer of ghost stories, is summoned by the Warden of Old College to examine an ancient stone mirror.

But he soon finds himself drawn into a dark maze of secrets, including one from his own guilty past.

Oxford 1665.

At a time when established orthodoxies are being challenged by the new science, Warden Woodward of Old College acquired the same mirror. He soon suspects conspiracy and witchcraft in a city besieged by plague.

Assailed by devastating visitors, caught between fears of an ancient curse and the World Wars of the future, two men from different centuries are forced to delve into a dreadful secret and confront their own demons.

But is self-reflection the most dangerous thing of all?

And are there some books that can kill?

'Prospero's Mirror' is a brilliantly imaginative novel that brings MR James, the master of the horror story, vividly to life in a story as dark and gripping as any of his own creations. It includes free stories by MR James and Edgar Allen Poe.

'Necromancy, witchcraft and gruesome goings on among the dreaming spires. This historically based, well researched and beautifully written blood chiller will have you looking over your shoulder for nameless horrors.' - Stella Rimington, former Director-General of MI5, and best-selling author of 'The Geneva Trap'.

"Alasdair Donaldson has written a splendidly spooky first novel, vividly combining the horrors of plague-ridden 17th century Oxford with mysterious goings on in the wintry city in the inter-war years." - Frances Cairncross, Principal of Exeter College, Oxford.

A. N. Donaldson studied Philosophy and Economics at Oxford, before working as a barrister in Lincoln's Inn and the City of London.

The ghosts of every human who ever died just became visible. And they seem like they're going to hang around, maybe forever. If you had a chance to try out being one of them for a while, would you take it?

Ryan Matney did. It didn't go well. Now he wants his body back. Except that somebody stole it, and will do anything to make sure he never finds it.

With the help of a private detective who has never solved a case and a scientist with very little faith in science, Ryan haunts across the ghost-infested world trying to track down his missing body. He has just ten days to get back into it, or be obliterated.... forever.

Also, he missed breakfast. That's less of a problem. But still a problem.

It began with a strange new kind of cancer, born on the other side of the world. Eventually, it erupted on a British hospital ward...

When a new cancer patient is brought into his care, Dr. Andrew Page assumes it'll just be another case of battling against the odds. Soon, however, he realizes that this new patient has been infected by a type of cancer that shows signs of intelligence.

As the ward is put into lockdown, Dr. Page struggles to understand the nature of the disease. More and more people start to become sick, until finally Dr. Page has to face the horrific truth: a new strain of cancer has emerged, taking control of its victims' bodies and turning them into zombie-like creatures.

For Dr. Page, this is a terrifying but fascinating new development. For the military, however, it means only one thing: the ward must be sealed, and the entire building - including everyone trapped inside - must be studied, observed... and then killed.
