  • Book 1 of Time Odyssey. 1885...On the North-West frontier, Rudyard Kipling witnesses a bizarre encounter between the British Army and a mysteriously watchful, hovering sphere - and then, shockingly, a helicopter from 2037 comes over the hill. Meanwhile, elsewhere, scouts from the great horde of Genghis Khan find that familiar landmarks on the great steppe have vanished - as if they had never been. And elsewhere yet again -  the courtiers of Alexander the Great  wait anxiously for news of the Great King, who seems to have vanished. Nothing is as it was. The castaways in time must make an epic journey across a transformed world, a journey to a devastating truth. For if history is long, our future may be shorter than any of us dreamed...Mankind's odyssey in time has begin...

  • Jacques Vallee, scientist and astronomer, argues that the appearance of UFOs, their landings and the many first hand accounts of the characteristics and behaviour of their occupants can be likened to the myths and legends from all ages and from all over the world that feature supernatural beings: angels, devils, elves or giants according to local folklore or belief. He sets out to build a bridge between two clusters of rumours, observations and reports: on one hand, the claims of men and women who state they have observed such beings and on the other, the large amount of similar data that has come to us through tradition.
  • On a distant planet in the distant future...When all the galaxies are colonised... John Craig, a young space diplomat, is captured by interplanetary pirates and sold into slavery. On Kossr, where boredom and absolute power have driven the rulers to a special kind of madness, Craig is auctioned off to the exquisite Lady Morgan Sidney, a beautiful, sensual woman. He soon makes his way from the hellish slave mines into her bed in the tower of her castle. And it is here, under the strange castle, that he finds the secret that may bring about the end of man in the galaxy. Cover art by Larry Kresek. ADVISORY: The author was the father of the former U.S. Attorney General William Barr and was headmaster of Manhattan's Dalton School from 1964-74. It seemed he preferred to write rather than teach and just before his tenure ended, Jeffrey Epstein became a maths and science teacher there. The novel, first published in 1973,  references a strange mineral called Weinsteinite...draw your own conclusions, Dear Reader.
