But be warned, fellow traveler… this is not just a book—it is a journey into the very life of Death.
Listen to the tales of the afterlife: Halloween, vampires, Heaven, Hell, Armageddon, zombies, death-bringing angels, ghosts, cults, ritual killings, nightmares from Vietnam... The lists goes on and on.
Ever wondered if it was possible to cheat death? To kill Death?
Did you know Death was a girl?
Or that it’s possible to escape and even become death?
The fear of death is as real as you and I.
You’ll be forced to answer the hard questions, and find out the answers to so much more. Like why you’re really here. Or the secret behind our fascination with the afterlife, not to mention the horrors of the actual event. These are not just stories but horrific experiences of pain and death: the deaths of lonely people, famous people, entire worlds, the death of innocence, and the pain of those left behind as they await their turn, wondering what it will be like.
No one is safe from the Reaper!

For a year, while the Master ruled over Earth, Martha Jones travelled the world telling people stories about the Doctor. She told people of how the Doctor has saved them before, and how he will save them again.
This is that story. It tells of Martha's travels from her arrival on Earth as the Toclafane attacked and decimated the population through to her return to Britain to face the Master. It tells how she spread the word and told people about the Doctor. The story of how she survived that terrible year.
But it's more than that. This is also a collection of the stories she tells - the stories of adventures she had with the Doctor that we haven't heard about before. The stories that inspired and saved the world...
Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.
In the near future, an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider causes an enormous explosion, known as the Collision. The blast flattens a huge chunk of central Europe and punches a massive hole in the Earth’s surface. Over the next decade, unspeakable horrors pour from the rift: vicious creatures with a taste for human flesh, a terrible scream that drives all who hear it insane, a phantom entity that feeds on fear and paranoia, and a nightmare train from the pits of hell, to name but a few. This onslaught of terror causes the collapse of civilization and threatens to wipe humanity from the planet.
World’s Collider is a unique concept in short fiction, where all eighteen original stories are part of a common narrative, recounting the disaster and its aftermath. A true novel by many voices, including Steven Savile, James Moran, Aaron Rosenberg, Trent Zelazny, Jonathan Green, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Kelly Hale, Richard Wright and a host of new talent.
Fifty million people died in the Collision. They were the lucky ones…
"Each component cranks up the tension and the disparate tales combine in mosaic-fashion to deliver a truly gripping narrative." - Ian Whates, author of The Noise Within
37 Action-packed Pulse Pounding Tales!
That’s exactly what you get in this collection of action stories from top thriller authors Stephen Leather, Matt Hilton, Zoë Sharp, Adrian Magson, Steven Savile and many more, including stories from exciting up-and-comers.
Think back to the days when heroes were heroes and the action was furious and full-blooded. When often as not, the hero was quite the opposite: an anti-hero - but he needed to be, to bring the kind of violent justice to villains worse than him. When political correctness took a back seat, even as the bullets and karate chops were flying. Basically it was good old harmless fun. It was a case of disengaging your moral compass and getting down with the hero as they took on all comers, and they did it with balletic grace and uncompromising violence. Gratuitous? Mostly. Realistic? Not always. Great fun? You betcha!!!
Then fast forward to the here and now: What if the current action and thriller authors set their minds to bringing back the action genres of old?
Well, that question is answered here.
Within these pages you will find secret agents, vigilantes (both just and insane), cops, villains, soldiers, veterans, gangsters, swordsmen, privateers, Ninja and even a crypto-zoological beast you might recognise. Some of the tales are delivered with shocking realism, some as lighter entertainment, some on the grittier side, but each and every tale included in Action: Pulse Pounding Tales Volume 1 is sure to get your heart racing.
Kick back and enjoy the ride!

What visions do we witness between our last blink and the sightless stare into the realms beyond?
What horrors are captured in the corners of our dying eyes?
If we could see those images before death, would they resemble what lies within these pages.
The Cauldron of Rebirth is destroyed, the fragments scattered to the four winds – but the legend lives on. In the twilight days of the world The Cauldron is fated to recall a survivor, or so the story goes…
Can the pieces be found and The Cauldron reforged in time?
Steeped in the mythology of The Mabinogion, five of Wales’ brightest stars weave a magical tale that proves the simple truth: stories never truly end
