  • Book IV of After Such Knowledge.

  • Book IV of Cities In Flight. Earth is finished as a galactic power. From the heart of the Milky Way come the first tentative strands of the Web of Hercules: the strange culture that is destined to be the next great civilisation of the galaxy.

But then an old friend returns, bringing some unimaginably bad news...Cover art by Chris Foss.
  • Two books in one - Valor's Choice and The Better Part Of Valor. Valor's Choice. Book I of Confederation: Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr was a battle-hardened professional. So when she and those in her platoon who'd survived the last deadly encounter with the Others were yanked from a well-deserved leave for what was supposed to be "easy" duty as the honor guard for a diplomatic mission to the non-Confederation world of the Silsviss, she was ready for anything. Sure, there'd been rumors of the Others - the sworn enemies of the Confederation - being spotted in this sector of space. But there were always rumors. The key thing was to recruit the Silsviss into the Confederation before the Others either attacked or claimed this lizard-like race of warriors for their own side. And everything seemed to be going perfectly. Maybe too perfectly... The Better Part Of Valor: Book II of Confederation: Never tell a two-star general what you really think of him - that was the mistake Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr had made with General Morris. And her reward - or punishment -  was to be separated from her platoon and sent off on what may prove to be a perilous assignment: protection of a scientific expedition to a newly discovered derelict spaceship of truly epic proportions. Only time would tell if the ship was what it appeared to be - or a trap created by the Others - or the work of an unknown alien  race with an agenda that could prove all too hostile to other life forms...Cover art by Paul Youll.
  • Book II of Jerry Cornelius.

Cover art by Bill Sanderson.
