In the small town of Tarry Town, New York the story of the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow has become something of Myth and Legend.

When a prank goes deadly wrong those responsible will learn the truth behind the legend as the Headless Horseman returns to exact a horrifying revenge that none will ever forget. From the writer of Salem’s Daughter: The Haunting comes a tale of horror and terror that will leave you on the edge of your seats. Hold on to your hats…and your head.

Legend of the Black Panda

The legend speaks of two sons, born of the same bloodline, but destined to walk different paths.  One would be born and choose the darkness, and so, the other must choose the light.  Ursus, the first born consumed by hate, seeks to end the life of his opposite, Jai-Den.  Will the elder destroy all others and become like a god, or can Jai-Den fulfill his destiny and end the war?

The Bad

The HIT series that redefines the Zombie genre returns! Years have passed since the events of The Waking took place.

But within a new world comes a new kind of killer. And he must be stopped! From the writer and creator of the Wonderland trilogy and Fly comes a return to the horror that never sleeps.

The first volume of The Waking was such a big hit, that a follow-up was inevitable.  With the dead coming back to avenge themselves, it’s pretty much made homicide detectives obsolete.  Which is exactly where Vanessa Pelagreno finds herself now, years after her initial involvement, only her problem is much bigger...

The Wonderboy Serials Vol. 2

A lone man with extraordinary powers is responsible for the longest sustained global peace in modern history.
