 Boldly Going … with a Bump!

__________________________

Mankind has always looked to the heavens and wondered what’s out there. We have always lapped up stories of strange visitors, of gods and monsters, of things going bump under the bed. Using the extremes of human imagination to conjure worlds at the far reaches of darkness and light, this is a collection of authors who have the power to transport us to the vastest plains or the smallest black holes.

 

Horror fans of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Peter Straub, James Herbert will find a bloody pool of psychological mind-meddlers here to keep them shaking with delight.

 

Sci-fi lovers of Asimov, Phillip K Dick, Arthur C Clarke, and Ray Bradbury will find others to launch them to new beginnings. Using our Book of the Month recommendations or ‘Author Like for Like’ tool, your next bone shaking book is just a click away… if you dare, that is.
