nicholas boving- AUTHOR
Nicholas Boving was formerly a mining engineer and travelled the world widely, but now lives in Toronto.
Tiring of the mining industry (his unalterable conviction being that mining in 40 degrees in the shade was a vastly overrated pastime) and wanting to experience more of the world firsthand, He also worked from time to time as a docker, fruit inspector and forester. His books and screenplays draw on these experiences to provide characters, backgrounds and scenes.
He is the author and publisher of the “Maxim Gunn” series of action/adventure books - nine books and counting. He has also written some nine other novels: dramas and thrillers, and a handful of screenplays all which follow the central character to countries and places - a couple futuristic - where the forces of nature as much as people provide the conflict. Most of these can be found on Amazon.
His current interests, not surprisingly, are writing and reading and thinking about writing. Sounds a bit dull? Well, as he says, think of all the places he can go and things he can do – the imagination is limitless.
Think about a man: suave, hard, devil-may-care, an ex-agent, the best that ever was. Call him MAXIM GUNN. Think about the dark realms, the hidden corners, the places where things lurk, things that live only in our imaginations, things that just should not be. Think about priceless jewels with unearthly powers, demons controlled by computers and psychotic madmen who want to rule the world. Think about a man who walks into trouble and says, “Into battle, murder and sudden death, good Lord, deliver me, right up to the neck.” Some agents may have a license to kill, but Maxim Gunn doesn’t need one. Gunn is the weapon of last resort. When they’ve run out of options, they call him back. No debates, no hand wringing, just get it done. And he does. MAXIM GUNN: THE FIRST THREE is an omnibus collecting the first three novels featuring the larger than life man of intrigue created by Nicholas Boving. Presented in this special edition by Pro Se Productions, this omnibus is the first of two, marking Pro Se as the new home for Boving’s modern Pulp hero. Thrill as if it were the first time to Gunn’s first three adventures- THE CHAOS PROJECT, THE DEMON PLAN, and THE SERPENT FORCE- in one collection.

She was trapped. In a Fortress Dark with chains upon her feet. Not in her wildest dreams had Frances West imagined anything so bizarre, and deadly, as the situation she found herself in when Drakkar the Vampire abducted her from her home in England.
But she had got in his way in Prague, and then her kitchen stove blew up, and there was the man in the middle of the road in the rainstorm when she flipped her Porsche, and after that it all got wild. Even wilder still, when she found herself in the dungeons of a crumbling Transylvanian castle, an event that sent a rescue team into action that should have at least bothered, if not scared Drakkar. But then, six hundred years earlier, this lord of the undead had been a famous soldier and nothing much frightened him.
Creepy dungeons, wolves that are not quite wolves, saw toothed raptors from a Jurassic hell, mindless zombies, and a screaming snowstorm await Frances West. But her greatest battle rests when she confronts Drakkar. Can she resist his attempts to steal her mind, to drain her life force? Is Frances West enough to bring this monster’s reign of terror to an end?
