Ladies and Gentlemen, last orders please.
Seriously, this could be your last ever order…

 

Have you ever fancied running a pub?

What about two pubs?

And what if they were in different dimensions?

Enter Mark Adams who is in serious need of a pint.

Now the fabled landlord of Peacebattle, he’s the only person who can stop the world from screaming for the rest of time.

But why chose a loser to save the world? What is the truth at the heart of the Binding Brothers’ dark religion and the monsters who thrive in its heart? And will Mark survive long enough to remember the most important advice of his entire career:

Don’t scream.
Whatever you do.
Don’t scream.

"IT FAR EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AND IS EASILY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE READS. THE NOVEL NEVER LOSES SIGHT OF BEING ENTERTAINING. IT'S FAST AND PUNCHY FROM BEGINNING TO END. THE AXE & GRINDSTONE MAY NOT BE TYPICAL FARE FOR HORROR READERS, BUT I RECOMMEND IT WITHOUT RESERVATION." 

HORRORBUZZ.COM

"WONDERFUL. ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL BOOKS I'VE EVER READ. CONSTANTLY INVENTIVE. CONSTANTLY SURPRISING.

AMAZON REVIEW

"THE AUTHOR HAS A FRESH, UNIQUE STYLE THAT MANAGES TO COMBINE ELEMENTS OF PRATCHETT / DOUGLAS ADAMS HUMOUR AND VICTORIAN GOTHIC HORROR INTO AN ELEGANT NARRATIVE. I REALLY ENJOYED IT - THE KIND OF BOOK YOU COULD SEE TRANSLATING WELL INTO FILM."

The Breath of Ages

And the Blood of the Reaper will cripple and burn…

It’s a tale for children. An urban myth to laugh at and mock.

The Tomb of Sebastian Carpenter haunts the town of Tayborough, and the child inside needs company. If you see it, you’re his for the rest of time.

No one believes the stories any more. No one but Ben Stafford.

For Ben knows it’s real. He’s seen the Tomb. It lingers in his dreams. It’s called out to him.

Beware the Elderly Man. Beware the Wolves of Forever Return. Give. Me. Your. Last…

And now the race is on. Carpenter’s Tomb is opening, and only Ben can stop the Reaper of Souls being unleashed upon the world. 

But what horrors lie dormant within the Book of the Brave Five Thousand? What is the bleak secret hidden inside the old Antique Shop? And can Ben escape the nightmare of his darkest day?

"I LOVE THIS BOOK. IT SLAMS OPEN RUNNING, AND RARELY PAUSES FOR BREATH. ONE OF THOSE READS THAT MAKES YOU KEEP WANTING ANOTHER CHAPTER, THEN ANOTHER. WONDERFUL FANTASY FICTION WITH AN ELOQUENCE THAT RAISES IT ABOVE ITS RIVALS IN THE FUTURE."

Doctor Who:

A Short Semblance of Home

It’s become his obsession.

 

Through the hottest of deserts and the coldest of snows, the TARDIS crew have searched for the one remaining piece of the Doctor’s most important experiment.

 

But now Barbara’s exhausted.

 

Why hasn’t the Doctor learned his lesson? What’s so important that his scientific curiosity outweighs the safety of the crew once again?

 

And will his latest arrogant trespass be the last he ever makes?

 

"A SMALL SEMBLANCE OF HOME IS SUBLIME. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT OOZES A MUST-LISTEN FEEL. THE SCRIPT IS BEAUTIFUL, A TRUE LOVE LETTER TO THE EARLY DAYS OF THE SHOW. HIS HANDLE ON THE CHARACTERS IS EXCELLENT, HE PAINTS A TRULY VIVID PICTURE WITH HIS USE OF WORDS. HOPEFULLY THIS WON'T BE HIS ONLY STOP IN THE DOCTOR WHO UNIVERSE."

Dark Shadows:

Behind Closed Doors

"EASILY THE STRONGEST TALE OF THIS SET, AND A REALLY UNSETTLING PIECE TO LISTEN TO. A STORY THAT DESERVES THE TIME DEVOTED TO IT AND NEEDS TO BE HEARD TO REALLY BE APPRECIATED."

BLOGTOR WHO

"LOVE LIVES ON IS THE BEST OF THESE DARK SHADOWS SETS FOR SOME TIME, AND THEREFORE COMES WARMLY RECOMMENDED."
