The Start of the Majestic World 

Agents Maynard and Brett are no strangers to complex mysteries and morally grey assignments. When they are sent in pursuit of a mysterious rabble-rousing radio personality, however, they stumble upon a web of conspiracy and betrayal beyond anything they could have imagined.

As events lead them from the brooding hills of Appalachia to the remotest wastes of Siberia to the deserts of the American southwest, they discover unlikely allies and twisted madmen, scientists bent on playing God, and mounting evidence hinting at sinister machinations that threaten the entire nation. With each thrilling episode, the ever-escalating power and scope of the danger they face forces them to call upon all their skills and experience to survive.

The Revival and Other Stories

A short collection of tales that are both spine-tingling and thought-provoking. A pair of young boys discover much more adventure than they counted on when they explore an old cemetery. The director of a small-town theatre group may oversee the revival of something entirely different than a neglected 19th century operetta. A young newspaper reporter finds that her photographer has taken the concept of bringing work home entirely too far.

These stories and more are told in a manner that eschews graphic violence and cheap shocks for a more nuanced approach to horror stories. (Language and situations suitable for older kids and adults.)
