The Quisling Covenant

The attacks came suddenly and savagely. Four of Rourke's team on the Kamchatka Peninsula dead. As the sounds of battle subside, he wonders... what's next? All of Natalia's team are dead and butchered, she—about to be raped. Michael battles his political opponents while praying his wife can be rescued from "a fate worse than death.” +Learn More

The Golden Shield
of IBF

Armageddon has come to the embattled realm of Creath, the final conflict between good and evil. And the victor—the despised Queen Sorceress or her heroic daughter, the Virgin Enchantress—will command all of the magical power of the universe. +Learn More

Earth Fire

The Russians, consolidating their brutal hold on America after the bloody horror of World War III, are planning an act so vicious that mankind, itself, may never recover from the blow. John Thomas Rourke, the ex-CIA Covert Operations Officer, weapons expert, and survival authority is the only one with a prayer of stopping them. +Learn More


The ravages of nuclear war have reduced America, the once-proud land of plenty, to a battle-seared landscape of blasted rubble and toxic waste. A few tattered pockets of civilization struggle against the tyranny of the totalitarian army's crushing military occupation. +Learn More


Step to the Graveyard Easy

CONTINUING HIS EXPLORATION of the quest for redemption, Bill Pronzini grabs the reader with the opening line of Step to the Graveyard Easy and shows once again why he is considered one of the best of the contemporary noir authors.

Earth Shine

The Rourke saga continues now with Michael Rourke striving to lead America back from the precipice of a liberal agenda toward the formation of a responsible government, accountable to the people.

The Wild Weasels

Every pilot knew the NVA was building radar-guided SAM missile sites, but Washington prohibited any strikes until the death rockets were up and blowing American fliers to pieces.


The supersonic SR-71 is a state-of-the-art profile of American military engineering. So when a top-secret spy flight comes to a crashing end in the African jungle, someone has to make sure there aren't any pieces for the Reds to pick up.

Ahern Short Story Collection

The "Ahern Short Story Collection" contains five previously published short stories written over a span of five years by husband and wife team Jerry and Sharon Ahern. It also includes "For I Have Sinned" written with daughter Samantha Ahern. Vampires, ghosts, the Holy Grail, a classic love affair and a Civil War tale combine to make emotions rise and hearts beat faster.


THE ROURKE FAMILY. Were they larger than life survivors from another place in history with superior intellect and skills? Or just normal people who were determined to survive, who were led into the future by John Thomas Rourke, who always believed in planning ahead? Their story has been told before but never by one who fought beside them and dove into the future alongside them.

Light Dreams

How strange it would be to spend almost all of your life inside a cave; albeit a cave with all the comforts of home. Skills taught to them at an early age kept them and their cryogenically sleeping family safe inside their shelter while waiting for the long anticipated return of the Eden Project.

The Quisling Covenant

The attacks came suddenly and savagely. Four of Rourke's team on the Kamchatka Peninsula dead. As the sounds of battle subside, he wonders... what's next? All of Natalia's team are dead and butchered, she—about to be raped. Michael battles his political opponents while praying his wife can be rescued from "a fate worse than death.”
