The world is at war against things that slink and gibber in the darkness, and titans that stride from world to world, sewing madness and death. War has existed in one form or another since the dawn of human civilization, and before then, Elder terrors battled it out across this planet and this known universe in ways unimaginable.

It has always been a losing battle for our side since time began. Incidents like the Innsmouth raid, chronicled by H.P. Lovecraft, mere blips of victory against an insurmountable foe. Still we fight, against these incredible odds, in an unending nightmare, we fight, and why? For victory, for land, for a political ideal? No, mankind fights for survival.

Our authors, John Shirley, Mark Rainey, Wilum Pugmire, William Meikle, Tim Curran, Jeffrey Thomas and many others have gathered here to share war stories from the eternal struggle against the darkness. This book chronicles these desperate battles from across the ages, including Roman Britain, The American Civil War, World War Two, The Vietnam Conflict, and even into the far future.

This ebook edition features 22 interior illustrations (one accompanying each story)


All three volumes of the spine-chilling TATTERDEMON trilogy available in one single volume.

In 1691 the town of Crossfall taught the witch Thessaly how to die. They beat her, they shot her, they hung her – but nothing worked. When they finally tried to bury her alive Thessaly set the field against them. The first man died as a gust of wind harrowed the meat from his bones. A root,flung like a dirty javelin, cut a second man down. Many more deaths followed. The Preacher Fell impaled the witch upon her very own broom but she dragged him down into the field to wait for three more centuries.

Three hundred years later Maddy Harker will murder her bullying husband Vic. She will bury him in the field as she buried her abusive father years before that. The very same field where the revenant spirit of Thessaly Cross lies waiting.

In three days Vic will rise again – a thing of dirt, bone and hatred.

Men will call him the Tatterdemon.

And hell – and Thessaly – will follow

“The genre needs new blood and Steve Vernon is quite a transfusion.” –Edward Lee, author of FLESH GOTHIC and CITY INFERNAL


“This is exactly the kind of intelligent, action-packed zombie thriller that fans of DJ Molles and Max Brooks will love!”
– ZombieBookBlog
When the zombie apocalypse sweeps across the eastern states of America, Jack Cutter is the man least likely to last beyond the first few minutes. Dealing with the recent tragic deaths of his wife and child, Cutter is forced into a desperate struggle for survival – and for redemption. Everything Cutter came to expect from life is torn away and turned upside down so that all he has left is his instinct and a sense of fate that compels him on his journey.

‘Ground Zero: A Zombie Apocalypse’ is a real story with real characters that readers will cheer on until the final shocking twist.
A novel of approx. 57,000 words.


Leena Price had been born with a gift. A gift which offered her only scorn from her father. She would find this gift to be either a blessing, or a huge burden. Doors would be opened into the brightest worlds or the darkest hells.

After years of living on the streets on her own, she’d found a safe haven with her aunt in New Orleans. However, New Orleans would prove to be dangerous for her. A serial killer roamed the streets of the French Quarter, and discovered this gifted woman. He kept his eyes focused on her, waiting and watching.

She’d become involved in the investigation, but would her gift help Detective Roger Black find the killer, or would it put her in harm’s way? Would karma bring Leena and Roger together, working it’s magic on them?


Are you sitting comfortably? Enjoy it while you can. For The Scoutmaster is about to tell you some stories…dark tales of the Great Outdoors, told over the flames of a campfire that will chill you to the bone… The Screaming Scout: “He’s so angry – so jealous – of the living…all he needs is a way through, a story to give him life, to keep his memory alive…” – Midsummer’s Eve is a bad time to tell a story about a scout taken by the spectre of his dreams…prepare yourself for a Midsummer Nightmare… Rock Face: “Take it easy. This mountain is always hungry…” A name from the past leads explorer scout Steve Wilding into a cave from nowhere, where the past becomes his eternal future… House of Shapes: “Some places are defined by their past, and will do their utmost to make sure history is not only remembered, but repeated…” A mysterious house is a beacon for a group of lost and weary travellers, but this beacon is a light that shines from Hell itself… Guess What We’re Having For Supper? “We can catch it and kill it. And we have to do it fast, before we become too weak to hunt it down…” A lost Outward Bound group are starving, and stalked by something in the fog. The two group leaders go off to get help, but only one returns. With food… New Boy: “No fire can warm me”‘ The new boy is no ghost, however. He is a servant of something dark and terrible – and eternal, as the gift of the timepiece to Robert Moyles will show… Cross Your Heart: “Guilt is a hungry beast.” An act of remembrance…the memory of a terrible mistake…and a plea for forgiveness that falls on undead ears… Cold Compass: “No, we’re not lost at all. We’re exactly where we need to be.” An antique compass points two lost youths in a new direction, to a marker with grave consequences… Tooth and Claw: “We have to have justice out here in the wild, right?” A stolen Siberian white tiger is the quarry for five hunters – five hunters who become the quarry themselves, but for a different creature. A hunter unlike anything seen before… The Great Outdoors have never been so chilling. Sit closer by the fire. Pray for dawn.


Two young boys reawaken an ancient vampire. Only “The Book of the Dark” can stop it. But the sun is getting low…. and vamps are not the only dangers in the night.


The thing Evil craves most is innocence. When small children disappear, you can be assured that Evil has crawled out of its dirty corner. And when those children turn up dead, Evil has clawed its mark on humanity.

What if you were a homicide detective and little girls were suddenly being kidnapped and murdered by a devious pedophile? And what if that pedophile left no evidence behind except for the broken bodies? What would you sacrifice to save just one innocent child? Would any sacrifice be too great? What if it cost you someone you loved? What if, by saving that child, you unleash a horrific monster into your own life?

Mikael Ruskoff was living his dream. He was a highly successful, homicide detective working a career he loved. He had a mother who adored him, a son he took skateboarding, and a wife he loved more than words could express. He played a mean drum set every Thursday night with his best friend on guitar. His life was comfortable and pleasurable. Then he caught a case that would change his life forever.

The Highest Paying Passive Income Sources

highest paying passive income sources

When it comes to earning passive income, I’m a complete novice–at best. Blogging is a hobby for me and one I enjoy very much. However, like many, I find it very exciting and fascinating to see how much other blogs really earn simply by putting their blogging skills to good use.

In case you didn’t already know, passive income is money you earn without having to repeatedly do something to do so. For example, the royalties an author makes from their books is considered passive income. You do all the work up front by writing the book, getting it edited, having a book cover designed, etc, but once you’ve published it, that’s it. You can continue to earn royalties for an indefinite time from that book, without having to work on it again.

Many of these blogs that are earning passive income do so in a variety of ways, and a lot of them share this information with their blog readers. There is a wealth of info to be found on the following blogs, from bloggers that have taken the time to test out various methods and post their results and earning reports.

Two important points I’ve seen pointed out fairly often are: finding your niche and joining the right affiliate programs. By checking out the various earning reports posted, you’ll see that many of these bloggers earn the majority of their blog incomes through affiliate programs. However, this has been a work in progress for them, and it’s not something that happened overnight. Also, just because one affiliate program pays well for them, doesn’t necessarily mean it would for another blog. Bloggers have to find the affiliate programs that will appeal to their particular readers.

So, if you’re serious about creating a blog and trying out your luck with passive income then check out the following bloggers. You will find pages of earnings reports, tips, what has worked for them, and things that haven’t worked. These people have spent countless hours building up their blogs and working with various passive income methods, and they have kindly shared all of this detailed information to help others. Enjoy!

High Paying Passive Income Blogs:

The Smart Passive Income Blog - I’ve linked directly to the earnings report page. Each of these pages (posts) contain a lot of details about what he tried, what didn’t work, etc, and there are a lot of pages here to go through.  This guy earns big figure numbers now… well over $100,000 per month, according to his monthly reports.

Making Sense of Cents – I really enjoy this blogger’s detailed reports. She breaks everything down in an easy-to-read format, as well as sharing what she’s made from various passive income sources. I’ve linked directly to the April 2016 report, but to see past reports make sure to check out the archives.

Dumb Passive Income Blog: This is a blog written by a self-described average guy that has managed to make passive income work for him in a big way. I’ve linked to his post that shares his 2015 earnings and details about how he made passive income work for him.

By Regina – This blog offers all sorts of tips to help bloggers grow their blogs. You can also find income reports on her blog. This blog might be of particular interest to authors, as Regina earns a portion of her income from books.

Entrepreneurs Journey – I’m linking to a post that talks about various ways to earn passive income.

I Will Teach You to Be Rich – I’m linking to a post that this blogger shares about how he made thousands of dollars in passive income in three weeks (and while being off the grid).

Just a Girl and Her Blog – Once a month this blogger posts her income reports, as well as what worked and didn’t work on her blog. I’m linking directly to the income reports page. It’s very inspiring to see the progression she’s had from month to month, year to year!

Matthew Woodward – Here is another great blog to check out for income reports and to see some of the highest paying passive income sources (at least for his blog). I’m linking directly to the main reports page, where he has laid out his affiliate income, consultation income, expenses, and more for each month since 2012!

743599He would sell his warrior soul to possess her…

An alluring laird…

He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart—until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm’s length—but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.

A prisoner in time…

She had a perfect “no” on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne’s reservations were no match for Hawk’s determination to keep her by his side…

Lord Byron thought he was captivating, the fashionable matrons blushed behind their fans at a glimpse of his hard form, and nobody knew where he came from. His startling eyes-one gold, one blue-promised a wicked passion, and his voice almost seemed to purr. There was only one thing a woman thought of when looking at a man like that: Sex. And there was only one woman he seemed to want: Lilac.

13325976Although I had never seen him before, I recognized him immediately. I’d have known his voice anywhere. This was the guy I’d seen on my last journey back in time.

Or more precisely, the one who’d kissed my doppelganger while I was hiding behind the curtain in disbelief.

Sixteen-year-old Gwen lives with her extended – and rather eccentric – family in an exclusive London neighborhood. In spite of her ancestors’ peculiar history, she’s had a relatively normal life so far. The time-traveling gene that runs like a secret thread through the female half of the family is supposed to have skipped over Gwen, so she hasn’t been introduced to “the mysteries,” and can spend time hanging out with her best friend, Lesley. It comes as an unwelcome surprise when she starts taking sudden, uncontrolled leaps into the past.

She’s totally unprepared for time travel, not to mention all that comes with it: fancy clothes, archaic manners, a mysterious secret society, and Gideon, her time-traveling counterpart. He’s obnoxious, a know-it-all, and possibly the best-looking guy she’s seen in any century…

Still, her life is pretty ordinary–until she awakens one night consumed with Aidan’s pain and rage. When Aidan suddenly appears and takes her hostage, Brie cannot believe how dark and dangerous he has become. She knows she should be afraid, but instead, she will fight across time for his redemption…and his love.

A mysterious artifact zaps Isabelle Rochon to pre-Victorian England, and suddenly her love of historical authenticity collides with the reality that she’s a modern-day girl. But when a thief steals her card case, she determines to retrieve the time-traveling artifact. Now she must hunt down the case, navigate the pitfalls of stiff society London, conceal her origins, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, a viscount so hot, he curls her shower-loving toes.

Lord Montagu is resolved to avenge his sister and has no time for dalliances, despite the appeal of the strange but lovely Colonial. However, when his scheme for revenge requires a respectable match, he convinces Isabelle to masquerade as his fiancée. But he did not bargain for Ms. Rochon being his intellectual match or her irresistible allure.
Isabelle thought all she wanted was to return home, but as passion flares between them, she must decide when her true home, and her heart, lies.

Set in 1834 London, this time travel historical romance features a small cast of historical characters, including Ada Byron, Lord Byron’s daughter, and Charles Babbage, inventor of the Difference Engine. It explores the often overlooked scientific developments of pre-Victorian London.
