Gibraltar Sun

Out among the stars, a million systems have fallen under Broan domination, the fate awaiting Earth should the Broa ever learn of its existence.

Are the hairless apes of Sol III finally faced with a problem for which there is no acceptable solution?While politicians argue, Mark Rykand and Lisa Arden risk everything to spy on the all-powerful enemy that is beginning to wonder at the appearance of mysterious bipeds in their midst…

Firemask

The Cumbre system is in a highly vulnerable position. Weakened in the aftermath of a vicious civil war, this collection of far-flung worlds is short on supplies and shorter on support. And the distant human Confederation government remains ominously silent. Now they stand in the path of an alien race bent on universal domination. Only the never-say-die members of the Legion stand in their way … Previously driven from this planetary system, the alien Musth have returned in force. Outmanned and outgunned, the planetary government soon surrenders. Escaping capture, the surviving Legion soldiers scatter. Now, Garvin Jaansma and Njangu Yoshitaro conduct their own war – their way. Under their leadership, the troops take their fighting to the streets in a brutal guerrilla war against their oppressors – and against the odds.

Dracula: The Un-Dead

At last–the sequel to Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, written by his direct descendant and a Dracula historian Bram Stoker’s Dracula is the prototypical horror novel, an inspiration for the world’s seemingly limitless fascination with vampires. Though many have tried to replicate Stoker’s horror classic- in books, television shows, and movies-only the 1931 Bela Lugosi film bore the Stoker family’s support. Until now. Dracula The Un-Dead is a bone-chilling sequel based on Bram Stoker’s own handwritten notes for characters and plot threads excised from the original edition. Dracula The Un-Dead begins in 1912, twenty-five years after Dracula “crumbled into dust.” Van Helsing’s prot�g�, Dr. Jack Seward, is now a disgraced morphine addict obsessed with stamping out evil across Europe. Meanwhile, an unknowing Quincey Harker, the grown son of Jonathan and Mina, leaves law school for the London stage, only to stumble upon the troubled production of “Dracula,” directed and produced by Bram Stoker himself. The play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents’ terrible secrets, but before he can confront them he experiences evil in a way he had never imagined. One by one, the band of heroes that defeated Dracula a quarter-century ago is being hunted down. Could it be that Dracula somehow survived their attack and is seeking revenge? Or is their another force at work whose relentless purpose is to destroy anything and anyone associated with Dracula? Dracula The Un-Dead is deeply researched, rich in character, thrills and scares, and lovingly crafted as both an extension and celebration of one of the most classic popular novels in literature.
