The Friday Night Frights series started off as something I intended to be a one-off tribute to the horror films of my youth like FRIGHT NIGHT and THE MONSTER SQUAD. However, my brain wouldn’t let it rest with just one book and more and more ideas for the further adventures of Dave, Mike and Arvid and their associates kept coming out onto the page. I have an end point in mind for it someday, but right now, I’m happy to keep coming back to their world and seeing what horrors they might be faced with next.
Book 1: The book that started it all. When vampires move in next door, it is up to a young man and his friends to stop them before they drain the town dry.
Book 2: Dave and Arvid take their monster hunting on the road when they go to a leadership camp and one legend turns out to be horrifyingly real.
Book 3: A girl with amnesia is hiding a deadly secret and Dave and April must figure out what it is before it destroys them all.
Book 4: A trip looking for vampires turns up something more terrifying than Dave and Mike could imagine when they uncover the horrors of the living dead.
Book 5: It’s time to raise some howl when a werewolf is spotted in Smith’s Grove. The only problem? It might be one of their friends.
Book 6: The latest in the series and also the perfect jumping on point for the further adventures.
It was the most important event of the year for high school students–prom. As a vampire hunter and a vampire respectively, David Gale and Tory Lane were the most unlikely couple going together. They had expected the night to be one filled with dancing and hanging out with friends, but when their old enemy Martin appears, it threatens to be the last dance they might get–ever.
When Santa Claus gets kidnapped, the elves call on John Hauser, the only detective drunk enough to take the case. Now he and his wife Deety traverse the supernatural underworld to find him or Christmas might never come again.
All it takes is one bad TV interview, putting a supervillain in traction and doing a little property damage in the process and Astrogirl finds herself suspended from the top superhero team in the world. With nothing to do but “reconnect with herself”–whatever that means–she dusts off her secret identity and gets a job to pass the time while keeping the heroics to a minimum in hopes of getting reinstated. When monsters start appearing all over town intent on making a meal of her fellow New Yorkers, Astrogirl is forced back into costume to save them. Throw in a mysterious mage and a world ending threat and it looks like the morning commute might be the least of her worries as she races to try and save the day and stop her career from crashing before it even gets off the ground.
Life is going pretty well for Anna in her civilian life and as Astrogirl–at least until she finds she’s been replaced on the Global Defenders. To get her mind off of it, she teams up with the Fearsome Force, a group of street-level heroes with good intentions and odd powers. When members of the Global Defenders start disappearing, it’s up to Astrogirl and this motley group of heroes to find out what is going on before the world is left at the mercy of supervillains. Can they find the culprit in time or will Astrogirl and her new allies succumb to the awful power of the fearsome forces that are stacked against them?
