Dragon's Jaw
Dragon's Jaw (1989)
(Vietnam Ground Zero, book 16)
Eric Helm
"Some of the most riveting war fiction written..."

Moonbane (1989)
Al Sarrantonio
"A novel with real style, informed by a wry and sometimes chilling point of view. Moonbane is not quite like anything you've read before!"

David Hagberg

Bad Karma (1997)
(Trey Campbell, book 1)
Andrew Harper (Douglas Clegg)
"Take a mental hospital, a weary psychiatrist suffering from nightmares he doesn't understand, and a killer as chilling as they come, and you've got a sleek, smooth, and constantly surprising page-turner. Reminds me of a very hip Robert Bloch. Some exceptionally nice work here."

Drawn to the Grave (1997)
Mary Ann Mitchell
"A tight, taut, dark fantasy with surprising plot twists and a lot of spooky atmosphere. Mary Ann Mitchell is definitely somebody to watch!"
The Double Life
The Double Life (2006)

Saint Homicide (2014)
Jake Hinkson
