Weird War 2 by Richard Denham

Welcome to the wonderfully weird World War Two...

The Second World War was the bloodiest on record. It was the first total war in history when civilians - men, women and children - were on the front line as never before. With so many millions involved, the rumour machine went into overdrive, tall stories built on fear of the unknown. With so much at stake, boffins battled with each other to build ever more bizarre weapons to outgun the enemy. Nazi Germany alone had so many government-orchestrated foibles that they would be funny if they were not so tragic.

Parachuting sheep? Pilot pigeons? Rifles that fire round corners? Men who never were? You will find them all in these pages, the weird, wonderful and barely believable tales from World War Two.

Blood Brothers by Nick Pope

RELEASE NOV 15th 2018

As the combined forces of MI5 and the SAS confront ruthless Islamic fanatics bringing jihad to the UK, two former enemies are reluctantly paired together to combat the threat.

Two deadly but very different terror attacks bring carnage to London on the same day: a suicide bombing in the heart of Soho, and the shooting down of a military aircraft taking part in a ceremonial fly-past. Simultaneously, a previously-unknown Islamic radical calling himself Saladin declares a caliphate in the UK and decrees that all British Muslims should rise up against the infidel state. 

The initial terror attacks are followed by sickening atrocities at Jewish schools, and in response to Saladin’s message, disaffected Muslim youths heed the call to arms, establishing Sharia patrols that bring terror to the streets. Others undertake lone-wolf marauding terror attacks. The resultant backlash plays into the hands of a charismatic right-wing politician and threatens to ignite a race war.

TBC: Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? 

KT: I was born and raised in Singapore. I've been writing since I was a kid. Although I did attain some recognition, I never realized my full potential until much later. My little voice, once lost, kept pressing me on. To date, I've authored three novels. I am self-taught, never once having the opportunity to attend a workshop or a school to learn the craft. Along the route, I experienced agony and ecstasy. I ended up being a magazine writer before switching to the field of public relations. It also involved some form of writing though different from fiction. I find myself more interested in writing fiction as it allows my imagination to thrive in more ways than one. It's like baking a cake, you know; there are many versio…
