H ayden Duke just landed a coveted contract gig with Marin Design Engineering, largely thanks to his old friend, Shane Fallon. Shane had drifted away in recent years, only to resurface with a dream job for Hayden. The gig seems like a cinch until Hayden discovers that a key designer on the top-secret project has just committed suicide by walking straight into the ocean.
The dream job becomes a nightmare when Shane takes his own life in a seemingly drug induced stupor. The only clue to Shane’s death is an e-mail with an encrypted file he sends to Hayden. It’s a file people would kill to possess.
The police already suspect Hayden in the death–because of a bogus drug charge from the past–and finding anyone to trust seems impossible. Now Hayden’s got to risk losing everything…before he loses his life.
From the author of Paying the Piper and Accidents Waiting to Happen, We All Fall Down is the latest installment of Simon Wood’s pedal-to-the-metal thriller catalog.

Foxblood: A Brush with the Moon is a 75,000 word Young / New Adult novel, the first in the series, and it contains scenes not suitable for under 14′s.
(Previously published as Foxblood:The Chase)
Foxblood begins with rather normal action of two young people conversing on the phone but as soon as the new accomodation is mentioned our antennae start to twitch (just as the author intended!) The prose is competently structured to move the story along and the characterisation is credible and three dimensional. The differing aspects of supernatural, extraordinary powers, darkness, menace and humour are blended in an optimum mix to make this an entertaining read. Robert Davidson.
This is young adult fantasy at its best! The pace put me straight into the story and I was engrossed.
Very convincing dialogue, not forced or contrived, good credible supporting characters and an impressive build up.
Your brilliant fantasy grabbed me and kept me riveted. Credible characters with emotional depth. Crisp dialogue. confident narrative. Vital writing. I love this story.

T here is–and could only ever be–one Billy Bob Thornton: actor, musician, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and accidental Hollywood badass. In The Billy Bob Tapes, he leads us into his Cave Full of Ghosts, spinning colorful tales of his modest (to say the least) Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias (komoda dragons?), his life, his loves (including his marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career. Best of all, he’s feeding these truly incredible stories and righteous philosophical rants through his close friend, Kinky Friedman–legendary country music star, bestselling author, would-be politician, and all-around bon vivant. Put these two iconoclasts together and you get a star’s story that’s actually an insightful pop culture manifesto–a hybrid offspring of Born Standing Up with Sh*t My Dad Says.

W hen Matt Archer was fourteen, he discovered monsters are real. As if that wasn’t enough to go on for a few decades, Matt also found out that he’d been chosen to hunt those monsters–with a sentient, supernatural knife. Now fifteen, Matt has spent the last year working with a clandestine military unit, trying to rid the world of monsters, demons and other vicious creatures, all while keeping it a secret from nearly everyone he knows back home in Billings.
Including his mom.
Add in a new girlfriend, family secrets, sibling drama and enough homework to sink an aircraft carrier, and Matt’s life has become more complicated than he ever imagined. Worse, the knife-spirit has developed some very definite opinions about Matt’s personal life and it interferes in his business whenever it wants. More and more, Matt’s coming to realize that sharing brain-space with a spirit kind of sucks.
When stories of decimated towns and hordes of zombies start pouring into the Pentagon from Afghanistan, Matt knows he’ll be called up soon. Between the new mission and the knife’s increasing control over his mind, Matt wonders if he’ll survive long enough to take his driver’s exam.

T his new expanded edition of AFN Clarke’s best selling and controversial book CONTACT is a raw, visceral, “no-holds-barred” account of combat from one of the men we paid to kill. When first published it caused a furor for its devastating honesty and chilling revelations. Clarke vividly recounts his experiences of two tours in Northern Ireland (in Belfast and Crossmaglen) as a Platoon Commander with Britain’s elite Parachute Regiment during the blood soaked 1970′s. The dangers, political agendas and religious roots underlying the conflict are eerily and heartbreakingly similar to Iraq, and Afghanistan today.
Clarke takes us to heart of the action. We feel what it’s like to live each day with senses on high alert, waiting to be ripped apart by the accuracy of a sniper or a well-hidden bomb. We enter the private world of soldiers ordered to hold the lines in an ancient quarrel they have little affinity for, but whose consequences are deadly. We experience their emotions, fear, courage, humor, bravado and the anguish of death.
This expanded edition continues from where the print version ended, revealing the untold nightmare Clarke lived through having nearly died, with half his insides missing, suffering from PTSD and being expected to return to a “normal life”. A story of the scars of war that affect generations. Of heartache, courage and hope for peace.
“.. its honesty and passion cannot be denied .. Mr. Clarke has sent out a powerful and disturbing early warning signal.” Maurice Leitch Daily Telegraph.
“..a major contribution to our understanding of war and how people act .. Contact is the work of a brave writer.” Kevin Toolis, Irish News.
CONTACT was first published in the UK in 1983 by Martin Secker & Warburg, was serialized for 5 days in The Mirror, a national newspaper, and became an instant best seller. In 1984 it was published in paperback by PAN Books, by Schocken Books New York and made into an award-winning BBC TV film. Book length 69,237 words.
AFN Clarke is a full-time writer. Fiction books include: Collisions, An Unquiet
American, Dry Tortugas, The Book of Baker Series (Dreams from the Death Age; Armageddon; Genesis Revisited), and the Thomas Gunn suspense series coming soon.
