  • Cronos

    A feast of time travel in three novels.

    Letters from Atlantis: Time  travel has allowed Roy's consciousness to enter the mind of the heir to Atlantis' throne, and what he found disturbed him. How could such an advanced city exist at this time? As Roy's partner Lora was discovering in her travels, the rest of the world was a dark, barbaric land still thawing from the ice age. Roy knows the island's fate - according to legend it would vanish into the sea. But if Roy is in an Atlantis unlike any the researchers predicted, then what were its secrets? And when would it be destroyed?

    Project Pendulum: The nature of time mechanics dictates that two travelers' masses be precisely matched; for that reason the first time travelers must be a pair of twins. For paleontologist Sean Gabrielson, the chance to travel back to the age of the dinosaurs was worth any risk. For his physicist brother Eric, the chance to see 95 million years in the future was equally irresistible. What neither planned on was how the inhabitants of those times would react to their presence.

    The Time Hoppers: In the 25th century, the only escape from suffocation in a totally controlled environment is to 'hop' backwards in time.  However, since time-hopping rearranges the past on which the structure of current existence is based, it must be stopped - but not too quickly. For the history of the 1970s includes the arrival of hoppers who have not yet left the 2490s - and whose departure must be stopped! But if time hopping is brought to a halt, the actions of those in the past may bring the  present crashing down.

  • acorna

    She was just a little girl, with a tiny horn in the centre of her forehead, odd-looking feet, beautiful silver hair and several curious powers: the ability to purify air and water, make plants grow and heal scars and broken bones. A trio of grizzled prospectors found her drifting in an escape pod amid the asteroids, adopted her and took her home to sizzling controversy. Officious bureaucrats wanted to put Acorna in a home and cut off her 'deformity'. Ambitious scientists wanted to isolate and study the 'unicorn girl'. Which was worse? Acorna's 'uncles' weren't waiting around to find out - they took her back at knifepoint and ran to the bandit planet Kezdet where no questions are asked and she might grow up free. But Kezdet has dark secrets -  an army of toiling, silent children in the mines and factories, unnamed, unloved and unseen, administered to by a mystery man known as 'The Piper'. And the Piper has plans for Acrona...
