Think you know Shakespeare? Think again. Will’s immortal tales often have a higher body count than a teenage slasher lick – and just as many freak creatures. All they need is a little updating to turn centuries-old classics into modern-day fright fests! At Globe University, romance is not going smoothly. Lenore likes Dimitri who likes Mia who likes Xander who, OK, likes Mia, too. When these mismatched couples are paired off for a summer school “parenting” assignment, trouble is clearly on the horizon – even before a spooky, old-fashioned carnival rolls into town
The world has two faces. The natural and the supernatural. The face we see every day, people filing past us in an almost zombie-like stupor, numb to the horrors of everyday life or driven to madness by the pain and agony of modern-day existence. And those are the people who aren’t zombies or monsters! Cal McDonald is a detective with one foot in the real world, and one in the world of magic.
REVISED EXPANDED EDITION – Foreword by Stuart Gordon. With a career spanning four decades, producer/director Charles Band has been described as everything from ‘The new Roger Corman’ to ‘The PT Barnum of Exploitation’, released over 300 films, discovered Hollywood stars such as Demi Moore, Helen Hunt and Viggo Mortensen, and brought to our screens bona fide cult hits such as Re-Animator, Trancers, From Beyond and Intruder. With such an inexhaustible output, perhaps it is little surprise that no book has attempted to cover this most prolific of moviemakers. No book until now, that is…
“It starts with a letter, a job, a head and a mysterious book – and only gets weirder from there! Deliciously dark, with humour as black as sin and evocative descriptions of all the outlandish grotesques on display; I especially liked the Moogle! In short, this romp was huge amounts of fun to read.”
Paul Kane (bestselling and award-winning author of Before, Arcana and Monsters.)
The Animus Chronicles – Book 1
In the darkness of humanity lies the world of monsters! Everyday Monsters is the first book in an expanded universe, which tells the tale of an undead man, dragged through a prophecy as the world around him falls. What seems as a quick and easy messenger job, quickly descends into a race to change the very fabric of existence. In a world which makes increasingly little sense, he must try to stay alive to bring a new balance to reality.
What is the Animus?
The Animus is a collection of books written by Christian Francis. They are separated into two sections, “The Chronicles” and the “Tales From“. “The Chronicles” are novels about the large scale world changing stories, the “Tales From” are the novellas which are the smaller, more intimate tales which occur out of the scope to the main novels but dwell within that world. Neither “The Chronicles” or “Tales From“. are told in order. They are fragments of a larger much more terrifying picture.
Charley has seen the coffin and the bodies drained of blood. He knows he will be the vampire’s next victim.

She was lovely, innocent, just fifteen – off on a church outing. And now she’s gone! Her father must find her even if he travels into the pit of Hell itself – into the peep-shows, the massage parlors, into the depths of degradation where the pimps and porno-movie-makers create their sexual phantasmagoria. Afraid, terrified that he’ll find her too late. For the first time ever, the novelization of Paul Schrader’s harrowing family melodrama is available for the digital marketplace.
“Horrifying and hysterical. I love this batsh*t book!”

The Animus Chronicles – Book 2
Throughout history there have always been those who tasked themselves with a mission to vanquish evil. None more so than those who would be seen as monsters themselves. Monsters who accept that the only way to conquer the darkness is to descend to the place where it was born, and meet it head on. Hell is what you make of it, and for Rebecca, Hell is what others have made for her, as her world crumbles into chaos and the fabric of reality tears in two. Even those she loves, hide a demons face…
