Havoc Tales Volume 1 Terror Below

Havoc Tales Volume 1, a new novella by Rollin Miller, cover by Rollin Miller

Havoc Tales Volume 1 Terror Below is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo in ebook format. It will be available on other outlets such as Apple in the next day or so. If you prefer to read Havoc Tales in a book format, it should be available from Amazon in about a week. Keep watching for it.

Two people, both Holman and Cassie Boring employees and working on the Transcontinental Water Pipeline project, have been murdered in Southern New Mexico.

Murdered does not adequately describe what has happened to them, but the gruesome details of their deaths will have to remain under wraps—for now.

Jack Havoc and his team have been brought in to uncover the truth about what happened to the victims and to put an end to the threat. They were selected based on their history of willingness to work outside normal boundaries of understanding and permissibility. Follow Jack and the others as they find the truth and, in the process, come face to face with the greatest threat they have ever encountered.

New Project in the Works

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love watching cold-war era monster movies and creature features. It doesn’t matter (too much) how hokey the puppets, costumes, and special effects were, these are a link to my past, my childhood, much more than King Arthur or Cowboys and Indians.

Beyond a doubt, my favorite is the 1954 classic, Them!. After all, who doesn’t like giant ants taking on the police, the army, and the city of Los Angeles? Coming in at a close second place is Twenty Million Miles to Earth. Oh, how I love that Venusian creature battling the elephant in Rome. Others include TarantulaCreature From the Black LagoonEarth Vs. The SpiderThe Black ScorpionThe Deadly Mantis, and It Came From Beneath the Sea, just to name a few.

I am a bit torn, wondering what some of these timeless classics would look like today, updated with all of the Wizbang computer technology available. I think they would look fantastic, but I am also afraid that something of the story would be lost in the process of creating amazing scenes and imagery. A certain amount of quaintness and nostalgia accompany these stories that just don’t fit in our day and age.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

Enjoying these stories so much, I am starting a series of novellas titled Havoc Tales.

The title comes from the lead character, Jack Havoc, who leads a specially chosen team in dealing with the frighteningly unimaginable. Writing is well underway, and I expect to have Volume 1 out in the next couple of months. The tales will be serial in nature, with certain themes and adversaries carrying through the storyline.

I hope you are as excited about reading these stories as I am writing them.

Keep watching, and I suggest you keep the lights on.

Until then, my books, Are We Monsters and 2520 The Last Day will keep you busy. Order your copies today.
