  • contraband

    There was menace in the night skies over England: an international smuggling racket with far-reaching political implications. Gregory Sallust knew nothing of this when, in the Casino at Deuville, he first saw the beautiful Sabine Sventy. Even the presence beside her of Lord Gavin Fortescue -  a man as rich as he was evil - gave him no warning of the violence and danger to which he was committed from that very moment, nor that he would have to save Sabine from a retribution that she ha surely earned.

  • Count Zero

    Here is a stylishly hip and frighteningly probable look at the future. From the software black market and the daring keyboard cowboys who plug into systems brain-first for mega-heists...to the haute culture of the art world where true genius hides underground like hunted prey...to the exclusive realm of technocrats where members of the brilliant aristocracy need an army of hi-tech, high-paid mercs to make a career move... Cover art by Richard Berry.

  • Countersolar
    It's 1942, the Titanic is still cruising and the world is at peace.  Suddenly, there's a distress call from Counter-Earth, our twin planet on the other side of the sun.  A ship is launched with Albert Einstein and the first woman pro baseball player - Babe  Didriksen - on the crew. But at the same time, Juan Peron and his lovely Evita launch a faster ship from Argentina, armed for war in space. Who will reach Counter-Earth first? A brains-and-baseball alliance of American heroes?  Or an Argentinian temptress and her fascist husband? Reviewed as  'audaciously inventive...a wild romp through a very strange universe.'

  • crippen

    July 1910 - a gruesome discovery is made at 39 Hilltop Crescent, Camden. Buried in the cellar are the remains of Cora Crippen, former musical hall singer and wife of Dr. Hawley Crippen. And Crippen, together with his attractive mistress Ethel Le Neve, have vanished. Across the Channel in Antwerp, the SS Montrose is about to set sail for a two week voyage to Canada. Slipping almost unnoticed into the throng of 1300 passengers is a Mr John Robinson  and his seventeen year old son Edmund.   A very interesting fictionalisation of the notorious Crippen - what might he have been like, why he was driven to murder his wife.  Crippen is also infamous for being the first criminal caught by wireless telegraph.   In the last few years, new evidence has arisen in the case - the corpse in cellar may not have been Dora Crippen...
