We are proud to present the four books in Mick Norman's Angel Chronicles: Angels from Hell, Angel Challenge, Guardian Angels and Angels on my Mind, in two omnibus editions. Often called The Last Heroes Quartet or The Angels Chronicles we have decided to put them under the colours of the FALLEN ANGELS. Thus making these classics of the 1970's Hells Angels' culture available in electronic form for the very first time, with stunning artwork by Tony Masero.

The books were Mick Norman's or, more precisely, Laurence James' vision of the then future. Laurence was an editor at New English Library at a time when they were publishing biker pulp-fiction by the likes of Peter Cave and Alex R. Stuart. He was Richard Allen's editor and dealt with some of the Jim Moffat skinhead books. On the back of these, Laurence decided to change tack — and sent in the manuscript of Angels from Hell anonymously to another editor. He stated that he only every thought of just the one book but NEL took up the option and Laurence wrote three more.

Often call "trash fiction" or "low culture", the Angel quartet has gained a certain cult fiction following—selling over a quarter of a million copies. It was their combination of sex and violence, the anti-establishment theme of "us" against "them" which made these books a success at the time.

This fiction is not for the politically correct and is very much a product of its time. It is gritty and realistically brutal. The sex, drugs, violence and music references remain intact because it very much mirrors the attitude of the UK-based Angels.

These novels are pure nostalgia, harking back to a time that many bikers of a certain age might identify with. Triumph, Norton, Harley-Davidson and Velocettes grace the pages.

We do not apologise for it.

Vol 1

ANGELS FROM HELL: England, turn of the millennium. Government repression has driven the Hell's Angels underground; the final outlaws. From their hide-out in the mountains of Snowdonia, Gerry Vinson leads his chapter, the Last Heroes, into battle. Apart from police and government manipulation, the Angels must contend with rival gang the Ghouls, as well as unscrupulous rock promoters who want them as cannon-fodder against the emerging breed of razor-wielding teen fans and the deadly new threat from gangs of strutting, scented, ultraviolent mod/skinhead hybrids: the Skulls.

ANGELS CHALLENGE: A year or so has passed since the apocalyptic ending of Angels from Hell. The government has fallen and a new freedom wafts through the streets. From their hideout in the mountains of Snowdonia, Gerry Vinson leads his chapter – the remnants of 'The Last Heroes' combined with 'The Wolves' – on a run South. Back to London. Back to a city ruled by a new Hell's Angels' chapter – 'The Ghouls' – and terrorised by gangs of teenagers who crop their hair and ape the manners of the 'Skinheads' of the sixties. Gerry knows that there can only be one winner. He also knows that the price of defeat is likely to be death.

Vol 2:

GUARDIAN ANGELS: A giant rock group tour is being planned, with top names from the United States, and security is the big problem with the promoters. How can they avoid the appalling violence from rioting fans, without jeopardising the lives of the security guards themselves? The Hell's Angels seem the answer, and Gerry Vinson's Last Heroes emerge from their Welsh retreat to do the honours. But the American groups have organised their own protection - an American chapter. The inevitable rivalry and ill-feeling is only averted when they are faced with a new threat - the satined and scented skulls.

ANGELS ON MY MIND: The Hell's Angels are outsiders. They make up their own rules. They delight in perverting the "normal" way of life and turn their backs on the rest of society. But for those who get in their way, and won't let them have what they want, they have only one answer – violence. And even when the do-gooders step in to save lost souls, they find what goes on inside an Angel's head is too much. Stranger than fiction, in fact. What started out as a crusade ends in death. The Angels swear revenge on those who betray them.
