  • The old First Empire lies shattered, swept away by the forces of First Foundation, established by psychohistorian Hari Seldon, the only man to have foreseen the shifting patterns of the inhabited Cosmos.  But not even Seldon could have predicted the mutant menace of the Mule - a being of terrifying supernormal powers who can precipitate a savage struggle that can lay waste to entire star systems.
  • Finity's End is the oldest Merchanter ship in the universe. In an era of spies, pirate traders, and uneasy alliances, the Company Wars are now over, the hunt for the fleet is winding down, and the ship is coming home to reclaim her trade routes. Having lost an entire generation, the youngest crew members, bred and trained for war, must face their most critical battle of all--survival in a time of lasting peace.

  • Book III of The Foreigner Universe. Six months have passed since the reappearance of the starship Phoenix - during which the alien atevi have striven to reconfigure their fledgling space program in a breakneck bid to take their place in the heavens alongside humans. But the return of the Phoenix has added a frighteningly powerful third party to an already volatile situation, polarising political factions in both human and atevi societies and making the possibility of all-out planetary war an ever more likely threat - a war that no-on e can win.
  • A handful of men and women struggle to survive in the dark aftermath of a devastating war, battling disease, hunger, fear and brutality. Gordon Krantz is one such man, an itinerant story-teller. One night he takes the jacket and bag of a long-dead postal worker and in the next village he visits, finds that the old uniform still has power as a symbol of hope, for the return of an age long gone. Unwilling to disillusion the villagers, he accepts their letters to loved ones who may or may not still live, and in doing so creates his greatest tale - that of an America on the road to recovery. His deception takes on a reality of its own as others come to join him, supported by the strength of a vision he himself only half-believed.

  • The Doctor is enjoying the sun on a holiday island - but things are soon hotter than he expected. The young American Perpugilliam Brown brings to the TARDIS a mysterious object that her archeologist step-father has found in a sunken wreck. Kamelion, the Doctor's robot friend of a thousand disguises, reacts to the object totally unexpectedly, with bewildering consequences for the TARDIS crew.  Kamelion sends the Doctor and his friends to Sarn, a terrifyingly beautiful planet of fire. This strange world provides the key to Turlough's secret past - and once again the Doctor is pitted against the wily Master.

  • Set on a brutal prison planet where 850 million beings are confined in 40 square kilometres, this is the story of an experiment so monstrous that it threatens the entire galaxy.
  • I, Robot: The Three Laws Of Robotics - 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.  2. A Robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law...These laws are meant to ensure mankind's supremacy - even when the robots seem more human than people.  But what if the Three Laws can be contravened?                                               Robots And Empire: Gladia Delmarre's homeworld, the Spacer planet Solaria, has been abandoned by its human population. Countless robots remain there.  And when traders from the  Settler worlds attempt to salvage them, the robots of Solaria turn to killing, in defiance of the Three Laws of Robotics. Long ago, Gladia's robots Daneel and Giskard played a vital role in opening the worlds beyond the Solar system to Settlers from Earth.  Now the conscience-stricken robots are faced with a greater challenge. Either the Three Laws are in ruins - or a new superior Law must be established to bring peace to the galaxy.  With Gladia, Daneel and Giskard travel to the robot stronghold of Solaria, where they uncover a sinister plot to destroy Earth.

  • Port Eternity: Lancelot, Elaine, Percival, Gawain, Mordred, Lynette and Vivien are made people - clone servants who work aboard The Maid, an anachronistic fantasy of a spaceship. They had no idea they had originated from old storytapes of chivalry, romance, heroism and betrayal, until a ripple in the space-time continuum sucked the Maid and her crew into a no-man's-land from which there could be no return. They are left alone to face a crisis which their ancient prototypes were never designed to master...                                                                        Wave Without A Shore: Freedom is an isolated planet - not because it's inhospitable, or off the main spaceways, but because outsiders - tourists and traders alike - claim that the streets are crowded with mysterious blue-robed aliens. Native-born humans deny these aliens exist - until a planetary crisis forces a confrontation between the question of reality and the reality of the question.                                                        Voyager In The Night: Rafe Murray, his sister Jillian and Jillian's husband Paul Gaines - like many other out-of-luck spacers - have come to try their luck at Endeavor Station. Their tiny ship has been salvaged from the junk heap and fitted to mine ore from the mineral rich rings that circle Endeavor. But a collision with a huge alien vessel provides them with the oddest first contact experience possible!

  • The TARDIS materialises in Mexico during the Aztec civilisation.  The Doctor and his companions step outside to find they are in a tomb - the tomb of Yetaxa, once a High Priest of the Aztecs. Barbara is hailed as Yetaxa's reincarnation by Autloc, High Priest of Knowledge, and Tlotoxl, High Priest of Sacrifice, when they find her in the precincts of the tomb wearing the bracelet of the deceased Priest, now revered as a god. And she takes advantage of her position and unaccustomed power to try and dissuade the Aztecs from practicing human sacrifice...
