The Running Game

The Running Game

Rachel’s father called it the running game. Count the exits, calculate the routes. Always be ready to run because they’ll always be coming for you. Whatever happens, they’ll always be coming for you.

On the surface, Rachel is just an ordinary doctor, trying to stay alive in war-torn London, but she has a secret. Rachel is a Reacher – wanted by the government and by the criminal underworld – for her telekinetic powers.

Charlie and his brother John had a reputation for doing the impossible. But after losing his family, Charlie is a broken mess and John is barely keeping him afloat. In desperation, they take a job from a ruthless gang lord only to discover the girl they are hunting is a Reacher – one of their own kind.

James Roxton, a conman and thief, is searching for the man who tried to kill his mother. Suddenly embroiled into the plan to kidnap Rachel, he decides he can turn things to his own advantage.

Even with the help of dangerous and dubious allies, can Rachel turn the game around and save herself? More info →

When their entire relationship is a lie, how can their love be real?

Hope Mathison’s ten-year high school reunion is approaching, and she’s dying to show everyone she’s no longer the poor, overweight girl from the trailer park. She’s not only lost the weight that made her so self-conscious for years but even started her own successful business as a software developer.

Hope’s plan to show her former bullies that she’s overcome the adversity of her home life and the hell they caused her for four long years has one little snag: she’s still single. Her best friend, Marion, has a solution though. Hope will attend a hot-fireman auction and buy herself a date for the reunion.

As they create a fake relationship to fool old classmates and family members, they discover a real attraction brewing, one he wants to pursue, but the insecurities of Hope’s past might just cost her the one thing she’s always wanted most: to be loved for who she is, even if, at heart, she’ll always be that overweight girl from the trailer park.

But can she trust Flynn when their relationship was built on a lie? Or will the insecurities of her past tear them apart? More info →

There’s something to be said for lust at first sight.

Redd wasn’t looking for Mr. Right but Mr. Right now. But the moment Nikko walked into her bar she felt that first rush of need. She wasn’t shy about getting what she wanted even if only for one night, which was all her chaotic lifestyle would allow. Besides, not many men wanted to date a woman who worked in a nightclub, even if she were the bartender. It tended to make them sneer. She didn’t know which was worse. When they found out she was part owner or when they found out she was a law student. That intimidated some. She didn’t really care.

Nikko wasn’t looking for anyone. His life was full as the senior associate at a law firm and he just found out he was being considered for partnership. His life was about to become even busier. Then something happened that left him shaken. What should have been one night of uninhibited pleasure became a weekend, then it became more. How did that happen? And did he want it to stop?

Living with Postcards

Living with Postcards

This non-fiction, colour-illustrated book describes my close relationship with old postcards, mainly fantasy ones. I've been collecting them since the 1970s and now own over two thousand of these charming, beautifully quirky historical items. I started fanatically collecting them while writing my thesis on Fantasy in Postcards at art college, where I was studying for a graphic design degree. My thesis won me a first with distinction, whereas my graphic art annoyingly gained me only a 2:2. I was asked by my art history tutor to lecture on the subject of Fantasy in Postcards. As I was only twenty-one at the time, I didn't feel ready, and opted to write this book instead. All the cards in my book are from my own large collection. More info →

What he had failed to consider was, as he did so, he had also made himself vulnerable to her...

A golden-haired girl named Sara lies in a deep sleep.

Return to Alpha The Beta Earth Chronicles: Book Six

Return to Alpha: The Beta-Earth Chronicles, Book Six by Wesley Britton

Forty years in the future, planet Earth suffers from horrendous climate changes due to global warming, and survivors are recovering from waves of decimating plagues from uncontrollable biological weapons. A strange spaceship lands on a Jamaican beach carrying six aliens, as Dr. Malcolm Renbourn’s journey reaches a thrilling conclusion.

Renbourn, the only man to have lived on three Earths in the multi-verse, began his astounding flight in The Blind Alien when he was unwittingly transferred to a parallel Earth and forced to adapt to new cultures and a new language. In The Blood of Balnakin, Tribe Renbourn traveled to a new continent, where even stranger adventures awaited. When War Returns caught Tribe Renbourn in a brewing war. A Throne for an Alien found Tribe Renbourn on the run and preparing for a final showdown. The Third Earth forced to them to cross the multi-verse once again, this time as outcasts in a strange world.

Now, how will our future generation react to the unexpected awareness that our planet shares cosmic space with at least two other earths?

Return to Alpha is the sixth and final book in the critically-praised Beta-Earth Chronicles series.

Immerse yourself in an extraordinary universe revealed by the most original storytelling you'll ever experience. Science fiction yes, but so much more . . . a story with a highly original concept, fascinating characters, and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don't let the sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you—this is a compelling and contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and social classes." -Raymond Benson, Former James Bond novelist and author of the Black Stiletto books

"An excellent work of new SF that hearkens back to the classics of Asimov and Heinlein. Told from the viewpoints of the different characters, it is a tale of a man from our earth (Alpha) being unwittingly transferred to a parallel earth (Beta) where he must learn to adapt to new cultures, attitudes, languages at the same time as coming to grips with the loss of his sight. Each of the characters are fully developed and well defined and being able to hear their thoughts about each encounter brings a richness to the narratives. Politics, religion, social mores and relationships are all examined from both without and within. Think Stranger in a Strange Land combined with Foundation and you may begin to get an idea of the scope and quality of this adventure." - Dave Massengale, Amazon review

“Spymaster and imaginative author, Dr. Wesley Britton has another big hit! His book takes the reader on a compelling journey of an Alpha earthling who has been spirited to planet Beta. Science-fiction, yes, but much more. The book explores science, medicine, commerce, education, spiritual life, family life and sex on an alternative planet which at times is insightful and hilarious in its comparison to our own Earth. In an ingenious way, Dr. Britton has created a new grammar and vocabulary to continually intrigue the reader. A true winner!" - Bobbi Chertok, Amazon Review

“This is the first book of a series where Robinson Crusoe meets Fringe in a parallel Universe dominated by women because of a disease that kills 3 to 1 the males who are born." - Amanda Spark, author of Janus Quadrifrons

About the Author: Dr. Wesley Britton is the author of four non-fiction books, Spy Television (2003), Beyond Bond: Spies in Fiction and Film (2005), Onscreen and Undercover: The Ultimate Book of Movie Espionage (2006), and The Encyclopedia of TV Spies (2009).

Throughout 2016, four sequels followed, including The Blood of Balnakin, When War Returns, A Throne for an Alien, and The Third Earth.

Meanwhile, Sara, James and Thomas are facing their greatest challenges yet.

CAPTIVE: The Story of Reuben in the Hole (DAY ZERO short stories Book 1) Kindle Edition

Reuben has been cast into a sinkhole for the terrible things he did. Which would be bad enough, but he's also Immortal and the ones who put him there have no intention of letting him out. Ever.

They may not even try to take care of him while he's down there. And why should they? He wouldn't. He would toss them and leave... except to maybe return for a bit of torture.

Oh, yes. That's why they imprisoned him. Those naughty, yet delightful, things that he loves to do.

The one positive: they've given him time to plan. And plan he has. Big plans. Wonderful and terrible plans.

And he will get out. Eventually. Eternity is a long, long time.

READERS' FAVORITE editorial review: 4 stars. Captive: The Story of Reuben In The Hole by B.J. Hyman is a creepy short story that freaked me out and left me with goosebumps. Reuben seems to be the epitome of evil and his psychopathic babbling is frightening. He has no remorse, no empathy, nor the ability to feel any kind of sympathy. His objective is to wreak havoc and create pain. Rather than feel regret for the pain he has caused, Reuben formulates more schemes to generate pain and suffering to those he comes in contact with. This is an eerie supernatural short story that is a perfect read for darker Edgar Allan Poe fans.

"BJ Hyman makes you as disoriented as her characters, then pulls it all together with such a great 'Ah-HA' moment that you're glad for the suspense!" ~Leigh McQueen, Author of the Fog Bank Series

In the tradition of Stephen King, Joe Hill, Dean Koontz, and, more historically, Edgar Allan Poe, BJ Hyman writes with touches of pop culture, horror, fantasy, suspense, all wrapped up with a very human story at the very heart of her work. No matter how fantastic the circumstance, the main questions are always who are these people and what makes them react the way they do. More info →
