  • Book III of Worldwar. From Warsaw to Moscow to China's enemy occupied Forbidden City, the nations of the world had been forced into an uneasy alliance against overwhelming odds.  In Britain and Germany, caches of once-forbidden weapons were unearthed and unthinkable tactics employed against the enemy. Even as lack of fuel forced people back to horses and carriage, physicists worked frantically to recreate humanity's first nuclear bombs - with horrific results. City after city joined the atomic pyre as the planet erupted in fiery ruins.  The tactics of daring guerillas become increasingly ingenious against a superior foe whose retaliation would grow ever more fearsome. No-one had ever put the United States or the world in such deadly danger.  If the carnage and annihilation ever stopped, would there be any pieces to pick up?

  • The book BEFORE the television series.  It's a bright autumn day in the small town of Chester's Mill. Claudette Sanders is having a flying lesson and Dale Barbara is hitching a ride out of town. And neither make it to their destinations. An invisible barrier has descended over the town. A woodchuck is chopped in half; a gardener's hand is severed at the wrist; the plane explodes with sheets of flame spreading to the ground and hanging peculiarly in mid air. Dale, Iraq war vet. turned short-order cook is forced to turn back to to the town he needed desperately to leave. As the residents speculate about what has cut them  off from the rest of the world, the Army searches for an 'inside' man. Barbara is put in charge, but Big Jim Rennie, who holds the town in a tyrannical grip, has other plans, and the Dome could be the answer to his political prayers. As food, power and water run short and children begin to have premonitions of a terrifying Hallowe'en, Barbara is forced to take on Big Jim and his thuggish supporters. Time is running out for those trapped under the Dome -can they find what created it before it's too late?

  • The author is not only convinced that extra terrestrials are visiting Earth, but that the continued UFO presence over the last 100 years has produced a change in human awareness. In the sequel to UFO Quest, he explains how we have been receiving communications from deep space for over twenty years and how, through specific channels and key individuals, messages from a powerful group called the Council of Nine have been received. The messages allegedly contain a wealth of information on the past, present and possible future of the Earth.

  • Stevens and Roberts decided to collaborate on a pictorial reference document when Stevens, a former U.S.serviceman, found that such photographs submitted to the military simply 'disappeared'. There was much work devoted to weeding out the obvious 'hoax' photographs, a practice that has sadly accelerated with the advent of such facilities as Photoshop. This book and its companion volume were published in 1986 and contain decades of intriguing photos, diagrams and accompanying text.
