The action-packed novella Bow-Legged Buccaneers from Outer Space has been receiving excellent reviews already! Available now for Kindle and in paperback here, and coming very soon to Audible! Keep an eye on our audio books page for details of when it’s available.

This is a cracking, crazy, up and at ’em offering from the ever inventive Owain Hughes. Set sixty years in the future, our protaganist Paul ‘Frank Castle’ Hoskins wanders the dark and dangerous wastelands of Chinatown- a sort of nerds version of Escape from New York. Frank tries his best to protect the inhabitants of Chinatown from the gun-toting bandits who infest it, and when an armada of robot pirates descend, all hell is let loose. Along with an eclectic mix of cosplay characters, Frank has to save the woman he loves and save Chinatown too.
What Owain Hughes excels at is writing no-nonsense, sit up and beg, edge of your seat fiction. Like his fantastic creation Samson Valentine, Paul is a man you do not want to mess with, but who you always want on your side-the hard man with a heart of gold.
Will he win the day and win the heart of his true love? I’d advise you to grab a copy of this to find out.
An excellent story, full of heart-pounding action and brilliantly bizarre characters. Great stuff!

From David Owain Hughes, author of South by Southwest Wales, comes the action-packed sci-fi horror novella Bow-Legged Buccaneers from Outer Space!

The year is 2082—the not-so-distant future—and Chinatown is a prison. One hundred years ago, between 1980 and 1990, hardcore arcade gamers, cinemagoers, TV freaks and comic book nerds took over the large oriental area and turned it into a no-go zone. The streets became violent, corrupt and the powers that be lost control. A large wall and river were constructed around the city; the waters were filled with sharks and patrolled by the government’s secret police, who had more artillery than Rambo

Paul ‘Frank Castle’ Hoskins is one of the good guys, doing his best to keep the streets clean and the innocent people safe. When Chinatown comes under attack from space pirates, will Frank have finally met his match? Will he be able to protect the woman he loves and save his beloved home? Bullets will fly, blood will be spilt, and vengeance will be sought.

Includes the bonus short stories Sticky Buttons and The Last Freakshow on Earth!

February 3rd saw the release of the supernatural thriller Where Shadows Move by Caroline Angel. Here are what readers are saying already…

5 stars – Phenomenal! This book was one of the best books I have read in a very, very long time. I recommend it to anyone who loves thrillers/horrors/paranormal. You won’t be able to put it down.

5 stars – The flavor of the novel in the 2nd half with the Australian background is worth the price of admission here. It keeps you glued to your seat guessing whether the magic of good is strong enough to take on the magic of evil. They have chosen to make a stand and the question is out there: are they strong enough to stop it? This is got to read novel at least once in your lifetime.

5 stars – This was the perfect horror novel, I really enjoyed the scary atmosphere and felt for Sarah throughout the book. The story was great and I enjoyed the way the author writes.
