Description : Working as a spirit talker is as dangerous as it is underpaid and that is just the start of Jack Worthington s problems in the urban fantasy, Old Haunts. Jack is behind on the rent, terminally single, and is greeted every morning by the ghost of an eighty-year-old woman with a bad memory. But things are about to get worse. In saving the life of a client, Jack is forced to break one of the fundamental laws of existence, a crime that carries with it the punishment of death. Knowing that his days or hours are numbered, he races to forestall his inevitable death sentence, but in his travels unwittingly stumbles upon a potential catastrophe in the making. Now he has to figure out why the ghosts of London City are sowing fear and paranoia into the minds of police and ordinary citizens, and what it all has to do with the anniversary of the infamous citywide riots that occurred one year ago to the day. His search eventually leads him to a haven for the city s underworld denizens, where he must face a vampire with whom he shares a terrible link to the past, all while trying to stay alive just long enough to avert the apocalypse. Some days saving the world kinda sucks."
Description : Paperback re-print of Earthstars The Visionary Landscape. London's Sacred sites are not scattered about the capital at random.Many form a recognisable pattern of sacred geometry, a vast temple groundplan identical to the design used to lay out Stonehenge's megaliths over 3,500 years ago. Astonishingly, it also relates to the measures and proportions of the New Jerusalem, The City of Revelation. If the conclusions drawn by the author are correct, this pattern is a circuit diagram of the forces of creation and a new evolutionary impulse is coming through our sacred sites, a transformatory influence which will change the way we perceive the world

Description : In 2006 a bundle of hand written pages were discovered buried in a garden in the outskirts of Cullybackey near Ballymena, County Antrim. They had been penned by Charles Kinhilt a lawyer from Cullybackey, County Antrim. They had been sealed in sacking and placed in a wooden box which had been covered in what appeared to be bitumen. The contents revealed the journal of one Brock Adair outlining his investigations into crime in County Antrim and indeed the whole of the island of Ireland in the late 1700s and into the 1800s. Further reading revealed a lady called Kitty Bradshaw Brennan from Wicklow who is believed to be Irelands first female investigator although this is not a proven fact .She and Brock conducted many successful enquiries together.
