The fog crept in at the midnight hour, ominous, impenetrable.

Then THEY arrived ... silent and hidden …

… and began taking …

… parts.

 

Bestselling author of over 50 books, Loren W. Christensen presents a short story inspired by actual events described in his popular nonfiction book, Cops’ True Stories of the Paranormal: Ghosts, UFOS and Other Shivers.

From advanced readers: 

"Wow! Just wow!"

"I didn't want it to end."

"It gave me a very uncomfortable sense of unease."

"Great story and an incredibly creepy atmosphere."

Unfortunately, even responsible parents who warn their kids about drunk driving and other risky behaviors commonly send their children off to school without having what may be the most important talk of all: "What would you do if someone showed up with a weapon?"

In this unique guide, Christensen teaches parents how to work with their children - from elementary schoolers to teens - to develop an age-­appropriate plan of action that includes developing an awareness of surroundings and critical thinking skills. Within the pages of this book are ideas and techniques to teach kids how to feel safer at school; when to tell adults about rumors or threats; how to mentally rehearse a response to a shooting; and what to do when a shooting occurs: when to run and how to run; when to hide and how to hide; when to fight and how to fight.

Just as a fire drill prepares a child to calmly follow a path to safety in a burning building, the information in this book will train students to begin thinking strategically, defensively and offensively in case violence erupts at their school.

OLD ED SERIES


A fellow martial arts student who introduced him to the world of crime. “What I saw was a quiet. That’s the only way I can describe it. It was sort of a tightly controlled detachment as if he was keeping something in, afraid whatever it was would get out.”

A friend who stayed by Sensei when he was at his lowest. “…maybe he was hittin’ himself in all these fights. You know, tryin’ to punch away his pain. Maybe he was so depressed or guilty over what he had to do over there in Vietnam that he wanted guys to hurt him.”

A woman Sensei hired to take care of his dying wife. “The violence scared me…and intrigued me at the same time. And the way he did it, so…so elegantly; it was a sight to behold.”

A man Sensei saved from a street gang who grew up to become a successful police officer and martial arts teacher. “There was something else going on in that fight. Yes…the situation was a desperate one worthy of his intensity, but…I think, he was fighting something else.”

Just as Grant thought he had a good book, his phone rang. The caller, one of the five, had one more story, a horrific one that would change everything, including the young writer’s life.

One of the most important lessons in this page-turner is that prostitution—far from being a victimless crime—affects everyone in one way or another. 

"... this one will make you sit up and take notice."
"This is not a book for the tender of heart."
" Eye-opening.”
"I'll never look at street corner prostitute the same again."

“Loren Christensen's fiction has the most realistic fight scenes.”


“A spot-on depiction of PTSD.”

"Loren's depiction of violence is realistic because he's lived it."

”Moving, funny, and violent.”

Not all wounds are visible

Grant had published only one book, so he was shocked when a martial arts master asked him to write a biography about his long, storied life. The writer began by interviewing five people who shared different phases of the man’s violent journey.

A soldier Sensei saved from unspeakable horror in a Viet Cong-infested jungle. “He was a beast under fire...he told me he stopped counting his kills after twenty-six. Can you imagine how that would tear at the fabric of your soul?”

The Time: Three Years From Now

The Rest Of The World: Unknown, But Assumed Mostly Destroyed


From Knife Fighter 1. 

When Grey was about 25, he and his father were having beers on the back deck of his parent’s home. Grey asked, “Why did you let me see your Ka-Bar that time when I was little? Why so briefly, I mean?”

His father took two swigs before he answered. “I’ve asked myself that a few times. I guess… I think I wanted you to see what a killing blade looked like.

to watch them... 

to move closer to them...

to touch them.


Doctors and sleep specialists explain that sleep paralysis is natural, and our brain creates frightening sights when the body can’t move. But there are three things they haven’t explained to those of us who have experienced it. In fact, they ignore the questions.

~ Why do so many of us see the same things—the so-called shadow man, shadow animals, and other shadow-like entities?

~Why do so many of us see these things when we wake up, but we aren't experiencing sleep paralysis?

~Why do some of us see these things when we are awake in other parts of our homes?

In other structures? In the nighttime streets? In forests? In graveyards?

Some people call their petrifying experiences Night Screams.

Loren W. Christensen, author of 60 books, takes an impartial look at this phenomenon that many observers say is increasing worldwide. To do so, he interviewed “experiencers” from every walk of life to learn what they see, hear, feel, and smell.

What he found was disturbing.

Time is of the essence as the sector is plagued with violent food wars, helicopter attacks, murders without consequence, and daily suicides, all of which litter the damaged streets with the dead.

Will Knife Fighter’s kukri blade and black ax, and Tala’s Smith & Wesson 9-inch fixed blade and Thailand-made sickle be enough to fight off a pack of wild dogs, murderous street people, and the deadly Bandanna Gang?

LWC BOOKS


Bestselling writer Loren W. Christensen has written many well-reviewed how-to-do books. In Musings on Violence, Loren takes a different approach and conveys his thoughts on training for violence, surviving it as it happens, and managing the aftermath. He also discusses what it means to be a warrior—a martial artist, a cop, soldier, and citizen.

Loren has been a martial artist since 1965. He is an inductee into the martial arts Masters Hall of Fame and holds an 8th dan in karate, a 2nd dan in jujitsu, and a 1st dan in arnis.

A 29-year veteran of law enforcement (ret), Loren brawled one-on-one with outlaw bikers, an Olympic Games powerlifter, construction workers, anarchists, crazed dopers, and the violent mentally deranged. As a Military Policeman in war-torn Saigon, Vietnam (then ranked the most dangerous city in the world), he experienced, as he said in a recent interview, “twenty years of violent police work condensed into 12 months.”

In short, Loren knows what he’s talking about.

Feel its aura. Its presence. But as soon as I pulled it out of the envelope, I no longer wanted you to see it, to know it existed.

“A blade that’s killed is at once a hideous thing and a thing of beauty. Until it has killed, all the time you spend with it training, is all theory, play.

“Facing a deadly threat with a knife is a moment like no other. Suddenly you’re no longer pretending as you have been in your training. Shit is real now, and to come out of it alive, you’re going to have to ram that blade deep into human flesh. And you’re going to feel that sensation in your hand, and that feel is going to remain in your hand, and in your mind, and the sight of him dying is going to stay in your eyes, even when you’re asleep.

“I didn’t want you to touch it or ever see it again.”

From Knife Fighter 2:[Note: Book 2 is the length of a novella]

Two months after their deadly trip to Sector 3, Grey and Tala have physically recuperated from all their injuries, although Grey has psychological issues from the deep stab wound received from the assassin, Leathers.

But are they ready to travel to Sector 6, the most dangerous part of the mostly destroyed city to look for Juni, Tala’s brother?

Time is of the essence as the sector is plagued with violent food wars, helicopter attacks, murders without consequence, and daily suicides, all of which litter the damaged streets with the dead.

​"The horrific world in this post-apocalyptic story is frightening given current events."
“Loren knows how to write fight scenes”
“The author’s experience with real-world violence always makes his stories gritty and real”









Most books about school violence focus on anti-bullying programs and counseling; this book, by retired cop Loren Christensen, takes a hard, realistic look at teaching kids what they will need to know if a gunman walks into their school.

What was once unimaginable and rare is now, tragically, part of life, and it's all too easy to summon that terrible image of a school surrounded by police officers, emergency vehicles and frantic parents and kids. Shootings have happened at large, urban schools and at small schools in sleepy little towns with low crime rates, because all it takes is one disturbed person to turn a seemingly safe school into a grim statistic.

Everyone at the rest home knew that Ed was pleasant, caring, funny, and popular with the women there. What they didn’t know was that Ed was also a hitman, and over the past 35 years he had eradicated 71 evil men and women.

He didn’t use a firearm because he believed there was already too much gun violence in the world. No problem. Ed knew many, many highly effective ways to do his job.

He had never made a hit personal until last night, and that one didn’t go smoothly. Could it be his 76 years were catching up with him? Was it time to retire? If so, he would never admit it.

Tonight’s unexpected job, possibly his last one, couldn’t be more personal and it would be his toughest yet.

KNIFE FIGHTER, 2

​By Loren W. Christensen

Officer Bossman, “Boss," a wounded World War II vet, has walked a beat in skid row for over 20 years, and he knows the people and the dark streets better than anyone. The regulars love him, and he loves them. But those who come into skid row to steal and hurt his people, quickly learn they made a big mistake. That's because there’s by-the-book policing and there’s Boss’s policing.

But times are changing; there’s a new breed 
of

cop on the horizon. They’re called The New Centurions, and Boss doesn’t like it.

"No one writes gritty as Christensen does."


"The author knows the mean streets because he's been there."


"Written by a veteran cop who lived it."

From the coauthor of On Combat and author of Policing Saigon and Cops' True Stories of the Paranormal. 

In this thought-provoking and highly entertaining book, bestselling author Loren W. Christensen (retired police officer) paints a vivid picture of the asphalt world of flesh and fantasy where hookers, tricks, and cops commingle, and sometimes collide.

The stories in this book—told by cops and prostitutes themselves—reveal the dark humor, poignancy, sadness, sordidness, and violence that is part of the world's oldest profession. Some will make you laugh out loud, others will make you wince, a few may offend, but all will educate you about the reality of street prostitution.


From the bestselling author of Cops’

True Stories of the Paranormal.

Up to 50% of the population has experienced sleep paralysis. They wake up in their beds to discover they can’t move, not a muscle, sometimes not even their eyes. If they manage to open their mouths to scream, nothing comes out. And for many of them, the terror doesn’t end there—some see something in their bedroom darkness...something moving.

A human-shaped shadow—sometimes more than one—blacker than the darkest places in their bedrooms, creeps away from a corner, out of a closet, through a doorway into the bedroom...
