My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Fading Shadows Releases & More

FADING SHADOWS Releases. In December 2004, the Fading Shadows line of magazines shut down due to Tom's health problems. We thought that was the end of it, but in 2012 we were back, better than ever. This time in paperback editions, and perfect binding. Postage per book (in US) is $3.00. If more than one book is ordered, we can adjust the postage.

“Shadowhawke: First Flight” by K.G. McAbee & Tom Johnson. Deposed from her kingdom, the Spider Lady rules a new kingdom in America.

DOUBLE DANGER TALES #64, containing “Murder Town” and “The Legend” by Tom Johnson. In “Murder Town”, a drug lord murders young Jane Hayes when she attempts to force her way into his organization. Unbeknownst to him, she had called her girlfriend, thinking they would soon be in the money. When Peggy comes to town asking questions, they want her dead also. But her path has crossed that of a mysterious man in black – a man hunting the drug runners – a man with twin automatics, and a challenging laugh promising death… The Black Ghost! In 1953 the legends disappeared, and now an old criminal wants back in power, but he had forgotten that Legends never die! $7.00 paperback, plus postage, from the author.

“The Soul Stealers” by Tom Johnson. Angels have walked among mankind since the dawn of civilization. Although we may not recognize them, or even see their presence, they are always with us.

Some even protect us in our final day, when violent death reaches out for our very soul - these are the Soul Sealers! $12.00 paperback, plus postage.
