Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A true story detailing how a Christian Police Sergeant from England boarded the Logos Hope Missionary Ship in 2011 and was forever changed when, in the Philippines, she unexpectedly encountered and fell in love with a group of street teenage boys addicted to a solvent called "rugby." The book details the highlights and lowlights, ups and downs, trials and tribulations, successes and failures of the Logos Hope crew as they defied local attitudes to slowly and carefully befriend this sidelined and often detested minority. You will read of hospital visitations, breaches of trust, criminal activity, gang fights and numerous disappointments, but ultimately you will read of the changes in the lives of just a few of the boys who decided to leave the street and the solvents for better future lives. It goes without saying that these small changes made the heartache and struggles worthwhile. A true story of Christian hope being brought to the hopeless in the Philippines. . . "As I approached the bridge leading back to the Logos Hope ship, I saw a lone figure standing in the shadows watching the people walking past. He was unsteady on his feet and rocking backwards and forwards holding a plastic bag in his hand. As I moved nearer, I saw it was Mark. He ran away when he saw me and tried to hide but didn’t get very far and so he sat on the ground, behind a large pillar, in the shadows, breathing heavily. I sat beside him on the ground, which was dirty and really stank, and when I put my arm around his shoulders I smelt the intoxicatingly strong smell of the solvent. The boys had recently stopped taking “rugby” and had moved on to a door sealant called “Vuca Seal” which was stronger. It was all over him and he reeked of it. I covered my nose. I remember this was the only time where the thought ran through my mind that I could see how addiction to this smell was created because it was really intoxicating. I knew I needed to be careful not to breathe much of it in, but Mark was really very high. He was vacant and staring ahead, and then he began crying again as I tried to talk to him. I asked him why he was doing this to himself and what was it that had made him so unhappy, but he didn’t answer. Mark got up and stumbled away as I watched him go. I followed and tried to talk to him again, sharing a bit of my life before I became a Christian and how miserable I had been. His hopelessness reminded me of my old life when I was immersed in drink, gambling and meaningless relationships. I knew Mark was listening as I shared the hope that I had found in Jesus with him, but he didn’t respond. Eventually, I had to leave him, alone and staring vacantly ahead of himself hanging over a railing. I was really worried that he wouldn’t make it through the night if he took any more solvents...."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A war is being fought between two powerful forces for control of planet earth. It has been raging on and off, for well over two thousand years. And as the centuries have past, neither side has been able to gain an outright victory. Dominant for the last two thousand years, have been the forces of the Dark Ones, and their human allies and slaves. Their objective is to exploit without any limit or regard, the natural resources of the planet. And to the Dark Ones, every living thing on the planet is a resource! As the human-race began to develop, the Dark Ones discovered among these humans, more than enough allies to assist them, in their need to accumulate and destroy. These humans, whose ego’s, and lust, for wealth and power, almost match that of the Dark Ones, themselves. Assisting the Dark Ones are savage creatures, creatures that inhabit a parallel word to our own. These creatures, under the control of the Dark Ones, have been coming and going between the two worlds for as long as humankind, has been around. Legends, myths, and horror stories, began to enter human psychic memory, almost from the very beginning. Stories which included shape changers, humans infected after being bitten, by Lycan or Vampires. Many other creatures, also moved between the two worlds, leaving their own mark, on the human psychic! Those people unfortunate enough to be bitten, and who do not die, develop the ability to change between the two forms, at will. It is summer, 2019. The forces opposed to the Dark Ones and their human allies, are now vastly outnumbered. The majority, of the human population, has up until now, lived in almost complete ignorance of a war, which has raged about them, for millennia. The planet is now under complete siege, global warming, oceans heavily polluted with toxic waste, and plastic. Wilderness areas being destroyed at an unprecedented rate, along with the biggest extinction, of wildlife, since the age of the dinosaurs. We have reached a tipping point, we either destroy the Dark Ones, and their human allies, or we resign ourselves to life on a dying planet. The worlds sanctuaries are under siege. And with the war threatening to become overt, the conflict now risks spilling over into the worlds, general population. The Muckulberry hunters, along with fellow hunters from sanctuaries all over the planet, have their backs to the wall. But news of the coming of a mighty hunter, who has been gifted with tremendous powers, and abilities, having been touched by Gaia, herself! Has bought renewed hope. His coming was foretold over a thousand years before, by the spirit of Muckulberry henge. But has his arrival, come in time for him to fulfil, his destiny Lady Claudia Muckulberry, with the full support of her new champion, and a small army of dedicated hunters, has decided that it’s time to finally break, the insane power of the Dark Ones, and their willing human allies. She intends to sever the head from the ravenous snake, once and for all, therefore restoring sanity, and balance back into the world.

And that's before she even gets started on some of Manchester's more challenging crimes . . . Locked In: When a body is found in a locked house Jessica has little in the way of leads. With a journalist that seems to know more about the case than she does, Jessica is already feeling the pressure to not only discover the killer but also work out how they got in and out of the house. Then a second body shows up in identical circumstances to the first . . . Vigilante: The national media can't believe their luck with an apparent vigilante on the streets, while Jessica's new boss seems grateful someone else is doing their job for them as the victims are all hardened criminals themselves.

With a lengthy missing persons list and frantic families wondering if the body part could belong to their absent loved ones, Jessica has plenty to deal with - and that's before more sinister evidence starts to emerge. The only clue is CCTV footage of a woman in a long black robe placing the hand carefully on the ground but who is the mysterious woman in black?

Book excerpt: Considered one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, the tropical island of Bali in Indonesia has long been the site for Western fantasies about paradise. Millions of tourists visit the Island of the Gods every year, from families treating the kids to a beach holiday to single men looking for cheap booze and sex. And for many young Westerners and Singaporeans, hardcore partying in Bali has become a rite of passage, but it is not without pitfalls. Bali is a rough place, as dangerous a place as you will ever encounter. What you don’t see in the glossy brochures is the rampant prostitution, the prevalence of AIDS, the bloody turf wars waged between local gangs and the drug- and alcohol-induced Western hooliganism. Tourists are robbed, raped and murdered and Westerners get into vicious fights amongst themselves and with Indonesians on a regular basis. In this extraordinary exposé, Australian author and Bali resident Malcolm Scott reveals the raw underbelly of Bali. He walks readers down Bali’s mean streets with honesty, humour and gritty realism and offers up a Bali choking with violent street fights, cheap sex and aggressive crime. Bali Raw is a must-read for anyone who has visited, or is thinking of travelling to, Indonesia’s Island of the Gods.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From fifteen of New Zealand's finest short-fiction practitioners come stories to delight, amuse and move. These stories have been gathered from a range of titles, published in recent years by Vintage New Zealand and commended by readers and reviewers alike. Owen Marshall is regularly described as New Zealand's finest living short-story writer and his subtle story included here is testament to his skill. Peter Hawes presents a wickedly funny story alongside an amusing and intriguing tale from Craig Cliff's Commonwealth Prize winning collection A Man Melting. There are two very different stories playing with the genre of crime writing, from Julian Novitz and Fiona Farrell, about whom one reviewer wrote: 'she has the rare ability of turning the mundane events of domestic life into profound human experiences'. The stories range from New Zealand settings, such as Shonagh Koea's 'Rain', to stories set in America, Australia, Russia, Morocco and the Galapagos Islands, among other places. Montana Award winner Charlotte Grimshaw is represented by a vivid story of a childhood experience in France, her short story collections having been twice placed in the prestigious Frank O'Connor shortlist. Among the many other prize-winning authors, Fiona Kidman has also had a collection, The Trouble with Fire, shortlisted for this award, and the story included here is from that fine book. Sue Orr's story 'Recreation' comes from From Under the Overcoat, which won the 2012 People's Choice Award at the NZ Post Book Awards. While Sue Orr's story is a contemporary riff on a Maori myth, there are several stories touching on the war, of recent travel, of colonial appropriation, of love and friendship. Other stories are by Witi Ihimaera, Stephanie Johnson, Sarah Laing, Carl Nixon, Sarah Quigley and Peter Wells. A fabulous smorgasbord to satisfy every taste.

Halloween, the night when the ghosts reach the height of their power, is fast approaching. With the help of school witchlet Elza Moss, and his cowardly dog Ham, Luke has just thirteen days to uncover the closely guarded secrets of black magic, and send the unquiet spirits to their eternal rest.
