Experience the terrifying side of Thrill-power with these one-off tales from beyond the veil. Whether they be ghostly goings-on that send shivers up the spine or guts-to-the-wall splatterfests that sear the retina, nothing is what it seems in these glimpses of a realm beyond our own.

The London Hanged
Defoe // The London Hanged
(Part: 10)
1671. It is five years since London was devastated by the Great Fire, the inferno caused by a comet passing over the capital. But from the ashes rose the undead, hungry for the flesh of the living. Protecting the populace was former Leveller Titus DEFOE, who led an elite squad of zombie hunters called the Brethren of the Night. But having defeated the evil magician Faust, who was controlling the stenches, Defoe has retired from zombie-hunting and returned to his old profession as a sedan-chair carrier, living in domestic happiness with fellow reek-seeker Tomazine Scarlet, her son Sean, and their new baby...

But with an aspect of The Orrery’s creator The Blind Watchmaker living in her head, there are many who want Wren for themselves...

Young Private Danny Franks was just a raw recruit until he was drafted into the ragtag guerrilla unit known as BAD COMPANY, commanded by the psychopathic Kano. The conflict ended when Ararat exploded, and much of Bad Company was killed or listed MIA — now, as Earth prepares to mark the ten-year anniversary, Franks and fellow ex-soldiers Thrax, Mad Tommy and Fly-Trap are living in a veterans’ compound, dosed on psyche-chem to keep the nightmares at bay...
