An Ancient Land: Genesis Of An Archaeologist – OUT NOW!

David trained as a Middle Eastern archaeologist before joining a prestigious American excavation as a field surveyor at one of the great sites of the region. At that time he also encountered the magical atmosphere of the Holy City of Jerusalem. But this ancient land was a key part of the ‘Fertile Crescent’, where, with the beginnings of agriculture 10,000 years ago, urbanism began, leading to the birth of Western Civilization. David was determined to discover what it was about the climate, about the environment of the area which had promoted this earth-shattering change in humanity. He put together a multidisciplinary team of scientists and discovered the exciting truth behind the whole process, and at the same time he unexpectedly found his life-long love among the ruins and the Stone Age hunting camps here, getting married in the Old City of Jerusalem, and arranging to be smuggled across the border into Jordan for his honeymoon to show his bride the enchanted city of Petra. This book charts these events with great passion and, as always, with ‘laugh out loud’ humour. The book is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in this part of the world, ancient or modern.

HORROR: The First Time America’s Paranoia Infected The World – OUT NOW!

The modern political environment is not the first time America’s paranoia infected the world.

Every generation the media is blamed for the unruly behaviour of the young. in the 80s it was Heavy Metal, during the 90s it was rap and computer games. Well, there was once a time when comic books were branded public menace #1. Statistics showed one hundred million Americans were reading the newspaper comic section every day in the 1950s, making them the most dominant art form at the time. Movies only managed an audience of some ninety million a week – less than one-sixth that of comics.

The subsequent Senate Hearings into juvenile delinquency would not only change the comic industry forever, it inspired an age of true horror across the globe, allowing government sanctioned witch hunts to destroy the lives of everyday people looking for hidden perils in a seemingly dangerous world. With a cast that includes Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Joseph McCarthy, America’s first serial killer, Albert Fish, Stan ‘The Man’ Lee and many others, ‘Horror: The First Time America’s Paranoia infected The World’ is a tale based on the true stories of those affected by these strange times.

The Hirono Chronicles: Meera – OUT NOW!

I didn’t know it would be like this. My books could not prepare me.

When I was thrust on this journey by the barbarians’ attack I had no idea what lay ahead.

No scroll ever told me about the wolves and the reason I felt a strange connection with them.

No parchment ever detailed Orran’s Blade and the terrible monster locked within it.

And nothing, nothing could have readied me for meeting Meera and learning what I would do to have her by my side…

King Kong of Skull Island: The Wall – OUT NOW!

9781912700967_cvr.inddMillennia before the Golden Ages of Egypt and Greece, a uniquely marvellous race of humans existed on the shores of what today is a portion of the northern rim of the Indian Ocean, on the northeast side of the Andaman Sea. They called themselves the Tagatu. They could have–perhaps would have–ruled the world. And then they vanished.

Their former greatness and their relationship to the giant species of anthropoids known as the Kongs are only hinted at in a colossal Wall that still spans the peninsula of Skull Island. How did the Tagatu come to live on that prehistoric island, and how could they have built such a Wall in the midst of so many terrifyingly powerful dinosaurs?

I am Dr. Vincent Denham. My father, the famed entrepreneur Carl Denham, was the first modern man to ever set foot on Skull Island and view that Wall up close with his own eyes and survive to tell the tale. This is our story.

KING KONG of SKULL ISLAND Part 2: THE WALL is the spectacular conclusion to Skull Island: Exodus. The war for species survival against the island’s indigenous forward evolved saurian denizens, the Deathrunners, and their monstrous queen, Gaw, threaten to wipe out the Tagatu and the Kong invaders. The inevitable , penultimate battle for survival between humans, Kongs and super-saurians takes place against the riotous prehistoric backdrop of Skull Island.

The Tagatu civilisation’s only hope for survival is the building of the iconic Wall: A massive barrier determined to defy both the island’s denizens and the arc of time itself. Spanning the millennia, the Wall will come to play a pivotal role not only in the fate of the Tagatu people, but also in the rise and fall of the mythic monarch of Skull Island, King Kong!

“Whether it’s Wonder Woman, Doc Savage, Tarzan, or Superman, Joe DeVito is an expert at bringing larger-than-life, mythic characters to life. Now he’s focused all of his imagination, skills, and passion to excite a new generation with the secret history of The Eighth Wonder of the World. KING KONG of SKULL ISLAND is a beautifully illustrated, riveting adventure that would have made Ann Darrow swoon and Carl Denham envious.”
