• War With The Robots

    One day the tough, dangerous, dirty jobs will be done by robots...invulnerable soldiers with superhuman strength and killer instinct; miners and sandhogs who can work on distant planets too deadly for humans; incorruptible judges, fearing neither political pressure or criminal vengeance; librarians with total knowledge instantly available...a chilling, yet piercingly prophetic picture of the Robot Age -when Man's 'slave' machines have learned their own strength - and the weaknesses of their masters.

  • Warrior En Garde

    Book I of The Warrior trilogy. Stripped of his rank, exiled Justin Allard is given one last chance to save his honour - by risking his life in the gladiatorial arenas of Solaris VII. But his newest Game World opponent - more skilled at Mech-to-Mech combat than any other rival - raises the stakes even higher. It's Justin's own half brother Daniel, lance commander in the dread Kell Hounds mercenary battalion. But Daniel has more serious worries than dealing with his embittered half brother. Princess Melissa Steiner, heir apparent of the Lyran Commonwealth, has been hijacked and the future of the Inner Sphere depends on her fate. Both Daniel and Justin face fierce battles, but in the Inner Sphere, where nobles have schemed for centuries to win the ultimate power, those who interfere with the Successor Lords are sometimes called heroes - and sometimes called victims.

  • Warriors Of The Storm

    Book 3 of The Rings Of The Master. For centuries, Master System ruled mankind unchallenged. Then a small band of renegades commandeered the spaceship Thunder and fled into pirate territory. Now they were prepared to seize the five coded rings that together could shut down Master System and return human destiny to human control. With them went a wild card - Vulture, a shapechanger capable of absorbing the body and memories of any other organic being. Without the information Vulture could collect, the rebels could never infiltrate the worlds where the rings were hidden. Each ring was better protected than the last. And as each ring drew the band further into Master System's web, Vulture became aware of a possibly more insidious danger - an unknown entity with the power to elude Master System seemed to be giving the rebels an unseen hand.  But the question is - whose side is it on?

  • Wildside Steven Gould

    It's another world: a pristine earth where mammoths and sabre-toothed tigers still roam. There are no laws, no cities, no highways, no pollution - no people. It lies just beyond the heavy wooden door, hidden at the back of the barn, through a tunnel that enters a hillside in South Texas, but doesn't come out the other side. It belongs to Charlie, a whole world accessible only through the doorway on the ranch his uncle left him free and clear. But to explore a planet, you need money. And equipment. And the money to buy the equipment. Money to live on while you explore; money for taxes on the ranch and to pay for the training needed to survive in a completely wild world. So Charlie captures some extinct birds  passenger pigeons - and sells them on the tame side to finance his venture.  He sells more than a dozen, and Wildside  Investments is born. That is the beginning of the end - for how can you keep a secret like that one anyone gets wind of it? Charlie and his trusted friends will have to fight for the preservation of the Wildside - and their own lives.
