World War II London Blitz Diary, Volume 2, 1941 (A Woman's Revelations Enduring War and Marriage)

[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.]
”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....
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.“

”The Wyandots were never that quiet, sedate, "cultured" tribe as depicted in most Wyandotte histories. They were warriors and traders, peace loving but known for passion and violence where needed. Almost exterminated, first by their Native American enemies, and later by the Europeans and even the United States government, the Wyandots were - and are today - survivors.”

The Runner (A Silo Story)
”This story is set in Hugh Howey's world of Wool. "As good as the source material -- if not better! I loved this story and hardly breathed as I read it straight through." --HUGH HOWEY, author of Wool. We all do what we can for the silo. Time is running out. As the Great Flood threatens to consume the silo, Ace and a team of divers are in a desperate battle to avert disaster. When a terrible accident destroys the person he cares about most, Ace has little left to live for. After nearly succumbing to the silo's flooded depths, Ace realizes that drastic measures must be taken in order to save their underground home. But those in charge deem his ideas too dangerous, his methods too forbidden, and he is shunned for his sin of toxic words. When an opportunity for redemption presents itself, Ace has only one question: Why should he fight to save these people, if they aren't willing to help themselves?”

In trying to bring the perpetrator to justice, his life is placed in jeopardy. However, intervention from an unexpected source is the catalyst which may blow the whole case wide open, forcing a battle for survival.”

The King of America: Epic Edition
”Set in an America where the future merges with the past, The king is betrayed by his closest friend, plunging the nation into a bloody civil war, spiralling to rival even the Great War itself...the war that ended the civilizations of the 21st Century. As the two sides collide, the king is cast into a desperate chase across America as Lexus dedicates every resource to the hunt. In the ensuing revolution friends and families are torn apart. And yet, amidst the devastation and bloodshed, old flames are rekindled. With a selfish, drug-addicted smuggler caught in the middle and a mysterious stranger with a hidden agenda lurking in the shadows, a divided nation must choose a side as the fate of America hangs in the balance. “

War in the Backyard

Time Loop
”AD 2036: Every strand of man’s once intricate web of civilization lies in ruins, crushed to the earth as if by the wave of some unseen leviathan’s hand. Those few human beings who remain alive in this wretched post apocalyptic dystopia have no idea what so suddenly plunged their world into chaos—winding the hands of progress back to the Dark Ages. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: In what remains of the city, Nathan Moreno, a self-styled outcast, does what he can to get by and stay alive in the crumbling remains of his neighborhood; that is, until a mysterious stranger walks into his life, and begs him to undertake a quest to travel back twenty years into the past to prevent the dire series of events that wrought mankind’s destruction across the globe. When the name of Nathan’s enigmatic father, who he never knew, is invoked, he complies—unaware that the journey he has agreed to embark upon will thrust him into a harrowing adventure filled with time travel, romance, a vicious army of malevolent alien creatures hellbent on conquest of the Earth, and very probably, the destruction of the entire known universe by his own hands. Is it possible for one intrepid, if not foolhardy, loner to save the world, or is it more likely that through heedless intervention into the flow and rhythm of time and space, he will condemn all of known existence to the same perilous fate?”

Foundlings (The Peleg Chronicles, book one)
Many high reviews.
Check price…not free everywhere.
”The Northern realms. Circa 2000 B.C. It was in the days of Peleg when the world was divided. After the flood of Noah, after the Tower of Babel and the dispersion ... when beasts were more numerous than men. Two orphans, Thiery and Suzie. The Lady Mercy without a protector. Priests of the dragon, Baal, and the Queen of Heaven are seeking sacrifices for their false gods. The Death Hunt! In a land of giants and dragons, and men running from the knowledge of their Creator, wickedness spreads as a plague, but a remnant of faithful souls shine in the darkness.”
