  • A lunar cruise ends in disaster after a moonquake sinks the cruiser Selene beneath a sea of liquid-fine lunar dust on the Moon's Sea of Thirst.

  • The discovery of the Gizmo was seen by its inventor as the final solution for all of Man's ills.  A device that would duplicate - anything! What it did produce was the total breakdown of the democratic structure.  Within two generations, American society degenerated into two classes: The Masters who controlled the Gizmo's power - and the slaves. Dick Jones is the youthful heir to Buckhill, one of the oldest compounds to rise from the ashes of society's ruins.  His rite of passage sends him to the Eagles, the secret mountain fortress that is the last bastion of power on the continent.  It is here he will complete his training but he soon discovers that the line between Master and slave is a fine one.  If he cannot distinguish between honour and his heart, he is fated to die a horrible death.  Cover art by Luis Royo.
  • Mount LookItThat was the only habitable place on We Made It, a narrow plateau less than half the size of California, surrounded by a black oven hot enough to melt lead with an atmosphere sixty times as thick as that of Earth. For this reason the population has to remain stable - and as far as the descendants of the Crew were concerned this meant they had to stay alive, using living parts supplied by the Colonists to keep them going.
  • Book I of Starcats.  Pranda and Khreng eat from the same bowl, couple, then preen - then travel across Time, down through Space, to the most bizarre and dangerous worlds in the Galactic Federation.  Even to Solthree, where they are met with some alarm.  A Starcat and rabbi tale, with dragons. Cover art by Tom Kidd.
  • Book II of Cities In Flight.

Now the 'spindizzies' that will take Scranton, Pennsylvania up into outer space are warming up. A last patrol makes sure the city perimeter is clear. He didn't know it yet, but for the redneck boy watching cautiously from the bushes, this was t be the first day of a new and very different life...Cover art by Chris Foss.
  • Luke Skywalker worked on his uncle's farm on the remote planet of Tatooine - and he was bored beyond belief.  He yearned for adventures out among the stars, adventures that would take him to distant worlds and the farthest galaxies.  Then Luke intercepted a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord.  He didn't know who she was but he knew he had to save her - and soon.  Armed with only courage and his father's lightsabre, Luke was catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever and headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star.

  • Book III of Worlds of Tiers. It was a world of tiers and layers - the Amerind level, the Garden of Eden level, the Talanac, the Atlantean - a universe of green skies and fabled beasts.  It was the playground cosmos of Lord Jadawin, with trans-gravitational gates to the other worlds and levels. But now those gates are being sabotaged to permit the entry of an invading force of 'Bellers' - human bodies housing the transferred minds of rebel Lords and their minions, who were seeking two things - total domination of every Lord's private cosmos, now that they had achieved immortality, and the life of Kickaha the Trickster, who knew too much.
