They call it … THE FALL.
The center of London – a perfectly circular section of it, two miles in diameter – has vanished from the world, shifting from its position in space and time. It has wound up in a place where there is no natural light. And everybody – tourists, office workers, everyone – is stuck.
Try reaching out into the surrounding blackness and your hand dissolves. Try calling out – you get no answer. And that is frightening enough, but now vicious monsters from mythology – harpies, Gorgons, and even were-creatures – have started to appear, roaming the city’s roofs and streets.
No regular person can possibly defend these millions of trapped souls from such beasts. But there is one woman in all of Inner London who is considerably more than normal. Supremely athletic and superbly fast, and armed with weapons nobody has ever seen before.
No one knows where she came from, but everybody knows her name. They call her … RAYVEN BLACK.
Includes the bonus story 'Mr. Smyth.' Both stories -- each of them startling dark fantasies set in London -- first appeared in top anthologies, and are now available in eBook.

About the Author
I'm the author of more than a dozen novels in the supernatural and detective genres, and often combine the two. My latest 2 books, the Helsinki-based chiller 'Under the Ice' and my dark fantasy epic 'Hot Blood' are currently out from Samhain Publishing. My shorter work has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Weird Tales and numerous top anthologies ... enough of it to fill up seven short story collections, many of them available from Dark Regions/Dark Renaissance Press. Widely traveled, I frequently use places I have visited in my work, with fiction set all over North and South America, through the whole of Europe, in North and southern Africa and in the Far East. My self-published e-books include a huge collection of my best short horror fiction, and the latest in my series of fantasy thrillers set in the fictional town of Raine's Landing, Massachusetts. My debut novel 'The Harvest Bride' (Tor Books) was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel, and in 2008 my collection 'Going Back' was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award.
