The Stone of Destiny: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure


During the elaborate funeral for Queen Victoria, a group of Irish separatists breaks into Westminster Abbey and steals the Coronation Stone, on which every monarch of England has been crowned since the 14th century. After learning of the theft from Mycroft, Sherlock Holmes is tasked with recovering the stone and returning it to England. In pursuit of the many-named stone, which has a rich and colorful history, Holmes and Watson travel to Ireland in disguise as they try to infiltrate the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the group they believe responsible for the theft. The story features a number of historical characters, including a very young Michael Collins, who would go on to play a prominent role in Irish history; John Theodore Tussaud, the grandson of Madame Tussaud; and George Bradley, the dean of Westminster at the time of the theft. There are also references to a number of other Victorian luminaries, including Joseph Lister and Frederick Treves. For fans of Conan Doyle’s immortal detective, the game is always afoot. However, for the great detective the stakes have never been higher as he must mollify a king who refuses to ascend the throne until “order has been restored.”

Burning House

They’re trained to fight fires. Now they have to fight for their lives. In a run-down part of Newstead Haven, an apartment building is burning. The fire is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. With one poor soul still trapped inside, a group of firefighters suit up and head into the flames on a rescue mission. But they are not alone in the inferno. An ancient evil has awoken. As the walls burn around them, the crew soon find themselves trapped and prey to a shape-shifting force with a taste for slaughter. With oxygen running low and the body count rising, the team’s only hope for survival is to trust each other. But who can you trust when the enemy could be anyone? A deft homage to classic slashers, with nods to the horror of H.P. Lovecraft, Burning House is a frenetic, brilliantly-paced rat-run and a true test of the reader’s nerve. Take a deep breath and step inside. PRAISE FOR BURNING HOUSE Danny King, author of The Burglar Diaries and the award-winning movie, Wild Bill, called it “a sizzling debut novella from Daniel Marc Chant. Chilling, claustrophobic and charnel. You can almost see the demonic shadows moving behind his writing.” In2thereview called the book “a 128 page adrenaline fuelled twisted tale that leaves you feeling out of breath at the end,” and that it featured “gruesome fight scenes that leads to some very disturbing ends.” Obsessive Book Nerd said “The scenes of ultra violence puts the reader into the world Chant created in a way that will get the reader’s heart rate up,” and “Burning House is a fun, quick horror read that fans of the genre will undoubtedly find appreciation in.” UK Horror Scene said “When the team face the unworldly threats, horror fans won’t be disappointed as the team are picked off one by one.” Horror Palace said “Chant has great control over the creatures endangering the lives of the characters.”

Unfortunately for him, word of his achievements has reached Emperor Aurelian's deputy, and he is sent north, tasked with smashing a counterfeiting gang.

    Cassius tracks the criminals to the city of Berytus, where his investigations are hampered by civil unrest and uncooperative officials, not to mention the personal problems of his servant, Simo, and bodyguard, Indavara.

    Despite this - and intense pressure from his superiors - the young officer eventually closes in on the gang. But his enemies will do anything to protect their profits, and Cassius and Indavara soon find themselves fighting not only for the emperor but for their very survival.

Eliminate the Impossible: An Examination of the World of Sherlock Holmes on Page and Screen

The book begins with a brief examination of the effect that the stories have had on modern crime literature. It goes on to examine the origins of the character of Holmes himself from his appearance to his drug use and supposed dislike of women. We then move onto a mini-biography of some of the significant characters in the series. Each of the original stories by Conan Doyle is examined in an effort to explain some of the more esoteric aspects and an examination is made of the attempts to form a proper chronology for the stories - as Doyle did not write the stories in strict chronological order. The second half of the book focuses on Holmes's career on the screen. There is a brief examination of some of the more notable actors to have portrayed Holmes and the films in which they appeared. Finally we look at the possible requirements for a definitive screen portrayal of the canon.

"Did I really say that? Hm, well, I am an odd sort, am I not?"

As Holmes and Watson arrive in the tranquility of a little village of shepherds and farmers to enjoy a few restful days in the idyllic countryside, strange things start to occur. While Holmes locks himself in his hotel room, consumed by depression, Watson is left to explore the surroundings on his own, acquainting himself with both the local shepherding community, the eccentric vicar, and the local folklore concerning a mysterious werewolf.

The Siege: Agent of Rome, Book 1


AD 270. Rome has ruled Syria for over three centuries. But now the weakened empire faces a desperate threat: Queen Zenobia of Palmyra has turned her Roman-trained army against her former masters, and the once invincible legions have been crushed. Arabia, Palestine and Egypt have fallen, and now Antioch, Syria's capital, stands exposed.

Cassius Corbulo is a young intelligence agent fresh from officer training. He has been assigned the menial task of rounding up wounded legionaries, but then urgent new orders arrive. He is the only ranking Roman officer left in the line of the Palmyran advance. He must take command of the fort of Alauran, the last stronghold still in Roman hands, and hold it against the enemy until reinforcements arrive. What Cassius finds at Alauran would daunt the most seasoned veteran, let alone a 19- year-old with no experience of war.

A mere scattering of divided and demoralised legionaries remain, backed up by some fractious Syrian auxiliaries and a drunken Praetorian Guardsman. With the Palmyrans just days away, Cassius must somehow find the discipline, resourcefulness and courage to organise the garrison, save Alauran and secure Rome's eastern frontier....

The Magic Mattress and the Ballad of Bill McKenzie
Written by Rob Sloane
Read By Nigel Peever
The Ballad of Bill McKenzie is the haunting and Gothic first volume introducing us to the universe and characters of the Magic Mattress series of books.
Epic tales of high fantasy, ghosts, monsters, adventure, mayhem and mystery... all happening in our familiar world: just out of sight; or there, in the corner of your eye.
Herein lies a ghostly little tale of top hats and tall booted fantasy, to stir the unquiet imagination.
There is a most infamous ghost in Liverpool. A legendary apparition, to inspire dread and wonder, and his name: Bill McKenzie. He has haunted the city streets in his top hat and tall leather boots for as long as any can now remember. Yet, all anyone truly knows about him is wild speculation and rumour. His is a dark mystery that has remained secreted for a century and more. And there his bones sit on a chair, in a pyramid shaped tomb, in an abandoned church yard, on Rodney Street.
Exactly how did McKenzie – in his life, an esteemed engineer and upstanding Victorian - become in death, this ghastly green-eyed spectre that strikes mortal terror into all who should glance upon him? Why does his restless shade sing among the shadows that dark lament of restitution, justice and revenge?
This then, is old Bill’s ghostly tale, told exactly as it happened: beware, for it is a macabre affair of the magical and the supernatural. The eternal game of souls: vast fortunes to be won, and enormous stakes to be lost. McKenzie’s fate, however, is not the end of the story – no, not by any means. It is merely the beginning of the undertaking. The opening moves in a far grander game: a fantastic adventure spanning all of time and creation.

Life on Mars

by Mike Dawson

Sour Grape Productions

Narrated by Nigel Peever


The novel 'Life on Mars' was originally conceived as a stage rock opera inspired by the work of David Bowie. A little over an hour ago, Vic had been a weak 68 year old man, but that wasn't what he saw in the mirror now. Instead, he saw a weak young man, clearly in his mid twenties. Instead of his unkept mop of hair he sported a rubber cap and from it protruded dozens of plastic tubes. They trailed over his shoulders like a wig of translucent dreadlocks. "What year is this?" He whispered, leaning forward to study his reflection. There was no reply. "Miss, er Blue. I asked you a question." he said a little louder, trying to remain calm. "The year is Tvc15." she replied cheerfully, then realising he would not understand Blue bit her bottom lip whilst quickly making the conversion. "T, Twentieth Century, V for 500 plus fifteen years. That would be?" She looked up for a moment. "Yes, to you that would be the year 2515."

Paranormal Investigations: The Proper Procedures and Protocols of Investigation for the Beginner to the Pro

The phenomena of ghosts and hauntings are very real experiences that more and more people are encountering every day. It is their true cause and nature that is the ongoing mystery. In Paranormal Investigations, author Chad Stambaugh discusses the process of trying to find that one piece of evidence that could prove, without a doubt, that ghosts are real.

Paranormal Investigations shows both the beginner and the professional when and how to correctly operate the different types of equipment integral to a paranormal investigation - cameras, camcorders, voice recorders, digital video recorders, EMF detectors, dowsing rods, pendulums, and more. In addition, Chad breaks down, step by step, the correct procedures for conducting both public and private investigations, including how to deal with clients, what to look for, how to look for it, and how to document an investigation.

Through this detailed guide, Chad works toward creating paranormal unity among those who research the events or phenomena that science can't or won't explain.
