  • 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.
  • Few knew of the discoveries referred to in secret code words by the astronauts in their description of the moon; or the strange moving lights they reported. The author allegedly fought through the official veil of secrecy to study thousands of NASA photographs, interviewed dozens of officials and listened to hours of astronauts tapes to present this stunning conclusion: NASA and many of the world's top scientists have known for years that there is intelligent life on the moon.  Illustrated with black and white photographs.
  • The Asthsheans are, literally, little green men, dwelling peacefully among the forests of their world. The culture places great emphasis on the importance of dreaming: their experiences while dreaming and awake are both considered to be real and valid. Their society is peaceful and gentle: murder and war are unknown. To most of the human colonists, the planet - which they know as 'New Tahiti' - is there to be plundered of its valuable timber.  The Asthsheans are contemptuously known as 'creechies', to be exploited as slave labour, to be pushed out of their homes and slaughtered without thought when they protest. A few men, such as Raj Lyubov, try to stand up for the Asthsheans - but they are greatly outnumbered by the crazed Colonel Davidson, to whom the only good creechie is a dead creechie. Inevitably, despite the efforts of Raj Lyubov and those like him, the Asthsheanshave to learn to fight back against their oppressors. And they do - causing changes in their traditional way of life forever.
  • Doctor Who: Virgin New Adventures No. 56.  "If you step into history," said the Doctor, "I won't be able to protect you." "This isn't history," said Roz. "This is family." The Earth Empire -  the Imperium Humanum, upon which a thousand suns never set -  is dying. The Great Houses of the Empire manoeuvre and scheme for advantage; alliances are made; and knives flash in the shadows. Out among the moons of Jupiter, another battle is just beginning, as an ancient brotherhood seeks limitless power and long-overdue revenge. The Doctor returns to the thirtieth century, searching for the source of a terrifying weapon. He fears a nightmare from his own past may be about to destroy the future. Nothing must be allowed to get in his way. But the Doctor has reckoned without the power of history - which has its own plans for the wayward daughter of the House of Forrester.
