  • Dr. Fiore, a practising psychologist has found that many of her patients who suffer from psychological and health problems have actually been traumatised by past close encounters of the third kind - visitations and abductions by extraterrestrials, the memory of which has been buried in the victim's subconcious. Beginning with a short history of UFO sightings fro prehistoric times to the present, the author explores some of the more famous abduction cases, followed by ten of Dr. Fiore's actual case histories showing the various forms these encounters take. Finally there is a checklist for the reader in order to recognise possible signs and symptoms.

  • Jillian Shomer had won the right to compete in the Olympiads that tested the mind as well as the body.  Athletes use The Boost - an operation that conveyed brilliant intellect and superhuman strength - at a terrible price.  Once Boosted, rapid burnout followed.  The only way to halt the effects was connection to The Link, the global information network that sustained the world.  Only those who won received the Link.  None who dared question the workings fo the system had ever survived. But Jillian Shomer dared.
  • She was just a little girl, with a tiny horn in the centre of her forehead, odd-looking feet, beautiful silver hair and several curious powers: the ability to purify air and water, make plants grow and heal scars and broken bones. A trio of grizzled prospectors found her drifting in an escape pod amid the asteroids, adopted her and took her home to sizzling controversy. Officious bureaucrats wanted to put Acorna in a home and cut off her 'deformity'. Ambitious scientists wanted to isolate and study the 'unicorn girl'. Which was worse? Acorna's 'uncles' weren't waiting around to find out - they took her back at knifepoint and ran to the bandit planet Kezdet where no questions are asked and she might grow up free. But Kezdet has dark secrets -  an army of toiling, silent children in the mines and factories, unnamed, unloved and unseen, administered to by a mystery man known as 'The Piper'. And the Piper has plans for Acrona...

  • Pilgrim is again at the centre of strange and mysterious affairs.  When last heard from, the Flying Dutchman of Spacetime was busy robbing the Pyramids so that he could fuel his spaceship cum time-machine.  His latest scheme is to reach back in time and save President Abraham Lincoln from assassination.
  • Against The Fall of Night is set in the far future.  Alvin is the only child to be born in the enclosed city of Diaspar for many centuries.  He discovers that outside of the static Utopian life of the city, believed to be the only city left on Earth, that there is another city - Lys, whose people have remained close to nature. In Beyond The Fall of Night Alvin's discoveries have led to a renaissance - man is reclaiming the Earth and even recreating earlier species of humanity.  But with creativity comes Evil.
  • Millville, USA - a small town like countless others - until it is sealed by a mysterious, invisible dome. Brad Carter manages to slip through a time-phase into a wondrous parallel world where he meets aliens from another dimension.  Ostensibly simple purple flowers, they are really a complex data storage system with extraordinary knowledge that can turn Earth into a paradise - or a hell.  The aliens propose a partnership in a great cosmic scheme.  But what is their true nature? What are their actual intentions? And how will Earth react to its first encounter with an intelligence no other world has been able to understand - or stop?
