Fleeing the horrors of Dickensian England and debts she cannot pay, Rosanna steals passage aboard a ship from a desperate young mother and her child. But all hope of a better life is snuffed out when the ship runs aground on Matron Island, a remote quarantine station off the coast of Tasmania.

Trapped, Rosanna searches for a way out, discovering hidden chambers and a bizarre photography studio deep within the bowls of the station. Each step brings Rosanna closer to the truth and the creatures that await her in the dark . . .

From the pen of Mike Jones – renowned multi-platform writer and Head of Story at Portal Entertainment – The Mothers is the first spoke in the Transgressions Cycle story wheel, this is Australian gothic horror at its finest.

The dramatic fight for modern Jewish statehood forms the backdrop of this second book in the Heritage trilogy, a series of epic political thrillers set in Jerusalem.

Following Bloodline, in which Bilal and Yael raced to thwart a terrorist plot in modern-day Jerusalem, Book Two travels six decades into the past and introduces Yael’s grandparents: Shalman, a freedom fighter turned peacenik archaeologist, and his young, beautiful wife Judit, a refugee from the horrors of Stalin’s USSR. As WWII draws to a close and the truth about Hitler’s genocide emerges, the need for a permanent safe haven for the Jewish people takes on unprecedented urgency.

But the path to statehood is anything but clear. Throughout Palestine, Arab and Jewish forces battle each other and the British for supremacy in a nightmarish environment riddled with hatred and suspicion. A plot to fashion the fledgling Israeli nation as a puppet of the Soviet Union—undermining Israel’s future as an independent nation—rests upon a handful of committed Jewish Communists, led covertly by Judit. Meanwhile, in a parallel storyline going back to the darkest recesses of ancient history, Shalman’s ancestors flee the grisly Roman occupation of Jerusalem, witness the glories of the Islamic renaissance in Baghdad, and endure the rampages of the Crusaders.

Set in one of the most fraught regions in the world and spanning centuries, this pulse-pounding, timely thriller centers on a turning point in the inexorable conflict that still rages today.

Zombie Double Bill

George A. Romero's classic 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead, launched a new era of gut-munching mayhem, relentelessly terrorizing the hearts of moviegoers and launching the zombie movie phenomenon. Screenwriter John A. Russo turned the flesh-eating frenzy into two horrific, blood-drenched novels. . .

Night Of The Living Dead

A cemetery in rural Pennsylvania. A brother and sister putting flowers on their father's grave. A strange figure shambling toward them--eyes dead and teeth gnashing. So begins a night of endless terror that would live on in infamy. Seven strangers locked inside a small farmhouse fight off an army of walking corpses. Who will survive? And who will have their flesh devoured. . .?

Return Of The Living Dead

Not long after the first zombie outbreak, a bus crashes in a small American town. Local churchgoers rush to the scene to save the living--and destroy the dead. But they're too late. A terrifying new plague of undead has been unleashed. A new horde of victims has been infected. And this time, they are ravenous. . .

Two great, gruesome zombie thrillers in one volume!

John Russo wants everyone to know he's a really nice guy even though he loves to scare people. He started it by co-scripting the 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead, one of the greatest fright flicks of all time, ranked #18 on the Internet Movie Database's top 100 Scariest Movies. (In a fine example of showmanship and multi-tasking, Russo also played a zombie in the film.) He also wrote the screenplays and/or stories for Midnight, Santa Claws, The Majorettes, Return of the Living Dead, Bloodsisters, and Inhuman.

Mr. Russo has authored fifteen terror-suspense novels, including Living Things, The Awakening, Voodoo Dawn, and Inhuman. His nonfiction books, Scare Tactics and Making Movies are considered bibles of independent filmmaking by film students and horror fans.

Those who are not faint of heart will enjoy digging into this presentation of Night of the Living Dead and the original stark-and-dark version of Return of the Living Dead. Look for John Russo's upcoming cinematic shockfest Escape of the Living Dead, which is now in preproduction for a 2011 release.

Mr. Russo resides in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. To his knowledge, none of his neighbors are zombies, though "there is that one guy around the corner who is rumored to have devoured the mailman a few years ago."

"Truly harrowing." --Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
