George Mann - Ghosts ​of Manhattan
1926. ​New York. The Roaring Twenties. Jazz. Flappers. Prohibition. Coal-powered cars. A cold war with a British Empire that still covers half of the globe. Yet things have developed differently to established history. America is in the midst of a cold war with a British Empire that has only just buried Queen Victoria, her life artificially preserved to the age of 107. Coal-powered cars roar along roads thick with pedestrians, biplanes take off from standing with primitive rocket boosters and monsters lurk behind closed doors and around every corner. This is a time in need of heroes. It is a time for The Ghost. A series of targeted murders are occurring all over the city, the victims found with ancient Roman coins placed on their eyelids after death. The trail appears to lead to a group of Italian-American gangsters and their boss, who the mobsters have dubbed 'The Roman'. However, as The Ghost soon discovers, there is more to The Roman than at first appears, and more bizarre happenings that he soon links to the man, including moss-golems posing as mobsters and a plot to bring an ancient pagan god into the physical world in a cavern beneath the city. As The Ghost draws nearer to The Roman and the center of his dangerous web, he must battle with foes both physical and supernatural and call on help from the most unexpected of quarters if he is to stop The Roman and halt the imminent destruction of the city.

George Mann - Lélekdoboz
1915 ​nyarán, miközben ellenséges zeppelinek támadják Londont, néhány hangadó brit politikus furcsa körülmények között leli halálát. Egy parlamenti képviselő, miután a németek mellett kampányolt, meztelenül a Temzébe veti magát. Egy tekintélyes katonai tanácsadó az ellenség oldalára áll, és amellett érvel, hogy Nagy-Britannia hódoljon be a császárnak, majd kisétál az állatkertbe, és bemászik a tigrisketrecbe. Egy híres szüfrazsett váratlanul kijelenti, hogy a nők egyenjogúsítása balgaság, ezt követően a száguldó vonat elé lép. A furcsa események egyre szaporodnak, a kormány pedig tanácstalan. Csupán Mycroft Holmes tudja, kihez lehetne segítségért fordulni. Üzenetet küld Sussexbe, a világtól visszavonultan, kedvteléseinek élő öccsének. Sherlock Holmes és Dr. Watson nekilát a bizarr halálesetek felderítésének. Eleinte úgy tűnik, egy különös társaság és egy fantasztikus találmány környezetében kell keresniük a megoldást, de mint oly sokszor, most is kiderül, hogy a háttérben sokkal hátborzongatóbb rejtélyek lappanganak, mint azt bárki sejtené... _Sherlock Holmes alakját Arthur Conan Doyle teremtette meg 1887-ben. A híres detektív olyan népszerűségre tett szert, hogy a szerző halála után számos író folytatta a kalandok sorát. Könyvsorozatunkkal a magyar olvasók számára is szeretnénk néhányat elérhetővé tenni néhányat a legjobb történetek közül._

George Mann - Mechanikus ​London
London, ​1901. A metropoliszban pezseg az élet az új évszázad hajnalán: a tudomány és technika elképesztő eredményeinek köszönhetően a Brit Birodalom virágzik, a nagyérdemű léghajókkal járja a világot, a pazar estélyeken pedig mechanikus emberek szolgálják ki az úri közönséget. Ugyanakkor azonban szörnyű járvány pusztít a városban, amelynek áldozatai lelketlen gyilkológépekké változnak és a ködből előbukkanva marják meg a mit sem sejtő polgárokat, míg egy állítólagos világító rendőr sorra gyilkolja Whitechapel szerencsétlen lakosait. Amikor aztán még egy léghajó is lezuhan, Viktória királynő legjobb ügynökét állítja a nyomozás élére: Sir Maurice Newbury, az elismert antropológus, valamint tűzről pattant asszisztense, Miss Veronica Hobbes okkult és nagyon is evilági módszereket egyszerre hasznosítva szállnak szembe a ködbe burkolózó Londonban felbukkanó rejtélyekkel.

George Mann - Labyrinth ​of Sorrows
As ​war spreads across the sector, Imperial and Chaos forces clash on the mortuary world of Kasharat. Far from the front lines, Space Marines of the Brazen Minotaurs infiltrate an ancient temple-tomb, seeking an artefact sacred to their Chapter... one that could turn the tide of battle in the Imperium’s favour.

Are the mysterious Raven Guard there to help the Brazen Minotaurs, or to destroy them?

George Mann - The ​Immorality Engine
Newbury ​has sunk further into his opium addiction, fueled in part by what he sees as Veronica's betrayal and his inability to confront her on the matter of her relationship with the Queen. However, when the body of a well known criminal turns up, Bainbridge and Veronica manage to track Newbury down, lounging in an opium den, and drag him out to help them with the case. Things are not as they at first seem. The body is clearly, irrefutably, that of the man in question, but whilst the body was in the morgue a crime has been committed that bears all the hallmarks of the dead man. The criminal is a compulsive (OCD), and they fear someone is committing copycat crimes. But Newbury is not sure. Somehow, the detail is too perfect for it to be a copycat. But how can a dead man commit a crime? Investigations draw a connection between the dead criminal and The Bastion Society, a group of rich society gentlemen with a shared fascination in the occult. On the surface these men appear to be nothing but amateurs and hoaxers, but it soon becomes clear that there are more sinister machinations at work behind the scenes. They are obsessed with the worship of the dead. And all the while, the dead man continues to commit crimes around the city. Eventually, it all comes back to Dr. Lucius Fabian, personal physician to the Queen and Head of the Grayling Institute, the place where Amelia Hobbes, the clairvoyant sister of Veronica, was installed at the behest of the Queen during the latter chapters of The Osiris Ritual. Newbury and Veronica pay a visit to the Institute, and are appalled to discover what has become of Amelia. She is lashed into a terrible machine which induces seizures, over and over, forcing her to predict the future for the good of the Empire. And more, the Institute contains secrets that could shatter the Empire. But the key to the mystery is here, also. For Fabian has constructed a machine that makes a facsimile of a person, weaving an exact copy of them in a tank. The machine is incomplete, however, and the copy lacks the spark of life. The hearts of these creations are still and dead. The plans for this machine have been stolen, however, and The Bastion Society have funded a machine to be built. The body of the criminal that was found is clearly not the original, who is still at large. But what do The Bastion Society want with these artificial cadavers? And how can Newbury and Veronica help to free Amelia from her terrible fate? And then the even bigger question - can they ever trust each other again? All of this - along with Newbury's opium addiction - will come to a head, and by the end, Newbury & Veronica's relationship will never be the same again.

Led by Veteran Sergeant Grayvus, their mission is simple – to rescue the planet’s last survivors. But in the midst of this nightmare, they receive new orders to locate and destroy a power station. The station is built upon a fault line, and the resulting quake would swallow thousands of tyranids and turn the war in the Imperium's favour. Grayvus and his company must fight their way through genestealers, acid spore mines and a deadly biomorph if they are to succeed and reclaim Idos for the Imperium.
