The Papal Prophecies, or: St Malachy and the Doom of the Popes (now updated for Pope Francis!)

For at least five centuries scholars have puzzled over a document known as The Papal Prophecies that were ascribed to St Malachy, an Irish cleric who died in 1148. The Prophecies clearly state that both Rome and the Papacy will be destroyed at some date in the early 21st century. Given that this date is now upon us, it is worth taking a closer look at the Papal Prophecies to decide what it is that they mean, what they can tell us and what - if anything - can be done about them. In this book, historian Oliver Hayes takes a fresh look at the centuries’ old mystery of the Papal Prophecies. He examines the Prophecies in detail, and investigates the circumstances around them. His conclusions are novel, startling and backed by solid research.

The Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident - ebook by Richard Thomas about the "Welsh Roswell"

The Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident is an ebook dedicated to a famous UFO incident in Wales, which convinced many locals that something odd had crashed up on the remote slopes of Berwyn Mountain.  In recent years Wales has become synonymous with stories of UFOs and alien invaders thanks to shows like the new series of Doctor Who and its sister series Torchwood, which are regularly using the streets of Cardiff for location filming of their alien invasions. But bizarrely mirroring fiction, in 2008, a real life UFO incident involving the near collision of a South Wales Police helicopter with an "unusual aircraft" took place near RAF St Athan, just outside the Welsh capital.

If there is a "Welsh Roswell" however, it has to be the Berwyn Mountain Incident of 1974, where it is alleged that a UFO crashed on the isolated and sparsely-populated area of moorland in the north-east of Wales, and like at Roswell wreckage and dead alien bodies were secretly recovered by the military soon thereafter. What separates the Berwyn Mountain incident from other UFO crash stories like Roswell, however, is the immediate reaction of the local residents. To begin with, no one was talking about UFOs and aliens, far from it. People living in the area thought that a plane had crashed on the mountain and the witnesses reacted by trying to save the lives of any survivors. The police were called in and set up a search team that was later joined by an RAF Mountain Rescue Team.

So what really happened up on the Berwyn Mountain? Read on to find out: The Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident (with free sample!).

Exorcising Angels - an ebook by Tim Lebbon & Simon Clark

Here, Tim Lebbon & Simon Clark pay homage with Exorcising Angels, set during The Blitz of WWII, when (in the words of the Bishop of London) all of Great Britain needed to pray a "plea to the Heavenly Father for divine protection against these Swastikad angels of Death."
