Peter Clines - Ex-Communication
_“All ​of us try to cheat death. I was just better prepared to do it than most folks.”_ In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven’t just kept Los Angeles’ last humans alive—they’ve created a real community, a bustling town that’s spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge. As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans... …there’s more than one way to come back from the dead.

Peter Clines - 14
Lelakatolt ​ajtók, szokatlan fények, mutáns csótányok. Nate lakásával valami nincs rendben. De a gondolatait most más köti le. Utálja a munkáját, a bankszámlája lassan kimerül, és még barátnője sincs. Elképzelni sem tudja, mit vár az életétől. Új lakása nem éppen ideális, de legalább élhető, és megengedheti magának. A bérleti díj egészen alacsony, a házkezelő cég ügynöke szuperbarátságos, és a rendellenességek inkább csak idegesítőek, mint nyugtalanítóak. Egészen addig, amíg a férfi nem találkozik Mandyvel, a szomszédjával, és fel nem fedezi a lány lakásának furcsaságait. És a másik szomszédjáét, Xeláét. És Tim és Veek lakásáét is. Merthogy a régi, Los Angeles-i téglaépület minden egyes bérlakása szolgál némi rejtéllyel. Olyan rejtélyekkel, amelyeknek a története több mint száz évvel korábbra nyúlik vissza. Némelyik furcsaság szembeötlő, míg másokat zárt ajtók rejtenek el a kíváncsi tekintetek elől. Viszont ha e különös rejtélyek összeadódnak, az akár a véget is jelentheti Nate és barátai számára. Vagy az egész világ számára…

Peter Clines - Paradox ​Bound
Nothing ​ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford. The one who's being pursued by...something. So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend. To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

As his investigations draw him deeper into the puzzle, Mike begins to fear there s only one answer that makes sense. And if he s right, it may only be a matter of time before the project destroys everything.

Peter Clines - Ex-Heroes
Stealth. ​Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others. Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions must overcome their differences and recover from their own scars to protect the thousands of survivors sheltered in their film studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. The heroes lead teams out to scavenge supplies, keep the peace within the walls of their home, and try to be the symbols the survivors so desperately need. For while the ex-humans walk the streets night and day, they are not the only threat left in the world, and the people of the Mount are not the only survivors left in Los Angeles. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power. And they are not heroes.

Peter Clines - Ex-Patriots
It's ​been two years since the plague of ex-humans decimated mankind. Two years since the superheroes St. George, Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth gathered Los Angeles’s survivors behind the walls of their fortress, the Mount. Since then, the heroes have been fighting to give the Mount’s citizens hope, and something like a real life. But now supplies are growing scarce, the zombies are pressing in . . . and the heroes are wondering how much longer they can hold out. Then hope arrives in the form of a surviving US Army battalion--and not just any battalion. The men and women of the Army's Project Krypton survived the outbreak because they are super-soldiers, created before mankind's fall to be better, stronger, faster than normal humans--and their secure base in Arizona beckons as a much needed refuge for the beleaguered heroes and their charges. But a dark secret lies at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it wield an awesome and terrifying power.

Peter Clines - Ex-Purgatory
When ​he’s awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college. But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more. George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja. Then one day as he’s walking from one fix-it job to the next, a pale girl in a wheelchair tells George of another world, one in which civilization fell to a plague that animates the dead…and in which George is no longer a glorified janitor, but one of humanity’s last heroes. Her tale sounds like madness, of course. But as George’s dreams and his waking life begin bleeding together, he starts to wonder—which is the real world, and which is just fantasy?
