  • Inheritor
    Book III of The Foreigner Universe. Six months have passed since the reappearance of the starship Phoenix - during which the alien atevi have striven to reconfigure their fledgling space program in a breakneck bid to take their place in the heavens alongside humans. But the return of the Phoenix has added a frighteningly powerful third party to an already volatile situation, polarising political factions in both human and atevi societies and making the possibility of all-out planetary war an ever more likely threat - a war that no-on e can win.
  • The Postman

    A handful of men and women struggle to survive in the dark aftermath of a devastating war, battling disease, hunger, fear and brutality. Gordon Krantz is one such man, an itinerant story-teller. One night he takes the jacket and bag of a long-dead postal worker and in the next village he visits, finds that the old uniform still has power as a symbol of hope, for the return of an age long gone. Unwilling to disillusion the villagers, he accepts their letters to loved ones who may or may not still live, and in doing so creates his greatest tale - that of an America on the road to recovery. His deception takes on a reality of its own as others come to join him, supported by the strength of a vision he himself only half-believed.

  • I Robot Robots And Empire

    I, Robot: The Three Laws Of Robotics - 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.  2. A Robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law...These laws are meant to ensure mankind's supremacy - even when the robots seem more human than people.  But what if the Three Laws can be contravened?                                               Robots And Empire: Gladia Delmarre's homeworld, the Spacer planet Solaria, has been abandoned by its human population. Countless robots remain there.  And when traders from the  Settler worlds attempt to salvage them, the robots of Solaria turn to killing, in defiance of the Three Laws of Robotics. Long ago, Gladia's robots Daneel and Giskard played a vital role in opening the worlds beyond the Solar system to Settlers from Earth.  Now the conscience-stricken robots are faced with a greater challenge. Either the Three Laws are in ruins - or a new superior Law must be established to bring peace to the galaxy.  With Gladia, Daneel and Giskard travel to the robot stronghold of Solaria, where they uncover a sinister plot to destroy Earth.

  • Cherryh Omnibus

    Port Eternity: Lancelot, Elaine, Percival, Gawain, Mordred, Lynette and Vivien are made people - clone servants who work aboard The Maid, an anachronistic fantasy of a spaceship. They had no idea they had originated from old storytapes of chivalry, romance, heroism and betrayal, until a ripple in the space-time continuum sucked the Maid and her crew into a no-man's-land from which there could be no return. They are left alone to face a crisis which their ancient prototypes were never designed to master...                                                                        Wave Without A Shore: Freedom is an isolated planet - not because it's inhospitable, or off the main spaceways, but because outsiders - tourists and traders alike - claim that the streets are crowded with mysterious blue-robed aliens. Native-born humans deny these aliens exist - until a planetary crisis forces a confrontation between the question of reality and the reality of the question.                                                        Voyager In The Night: Rafe Murray, his sister Jillian and Jillian's husband Paul Gaines - like many other out-of-luck spacers - have come to try their luck at Endeavor Station. Their tiny ship has been salvaged from the junk heap and fitted to mine ore from the mineral rich rings that circle Endeavor. But a collision with a huge alien vessel provides them with the oddest first contact experience possible!

  • The Aztecs

    The TARDIS materialises in Mexico during the Aztec civilisation.  The Doctor and his companions step outside to find they are in a tomb - the tomb of Yetaxa, once a High Priest of the Aztecs. Barbara is hailed as Yetaxa's reincarnation by Autloc, High Priest of Knowledge, and Tlotoxl, High Priest of Sacrifice, when they find her in the precincts of the tomb wearing the bracelet of the deceased Priest, now revered as a god. And she takes advantage of her position and unaccustomed power to try and dissuade the Aztecs from practicing human sacrifice...

  • Vanderdekens Children

    A mysterious disturbance in the hyperspatial vortex causes the Doctor and Sam to materialise the TARDIS in deep space. Here they find that a huge derelict alien craft has become the subject of a dangerous confrontation between starships from the rival systems of Nimos and Emindar. At the centre of the dispute is a ruthless politician with secrets of his own - a man who is willing to risk innocent lives to claim the derelict for himself. The Doctor and Sam accompany an expedition into the heart of the alien vessel as strange and frightening incidents spread terror through the watching ships. But exploring deeper into the derelict disturbs a sinister presence and takes the expedition toward an inevitable confrontation with fate and perhaps, beyond the boundaries of life itself.  An adventure of the Eighth Doctor.
