  • It Is 1867: an unknown monster roams the sea and a U.S. Navy ship commanded by Captain Farragut is sent to investigate the strange and hazardous world of the ocean's depths. Here is Verne's classic tale of Captain Nemo and the  Nautilus with all the suspense and excitement of a modern sci-fi thriller. Complete and unabridged edition.
  • According to statistics, only 10% of the world's population has seen a ghost or experienced something supernatural. What lends substance to this small number is that it is 10% of each generation. Thus, over the millennia, many millions of people have encountered  haunts of one sort or another, and it is this rather formidable number that makes the phenomenon believable. What makes them unbelievable is the sceptical 90% and it is between these two disparate hordes - living and dead - that the debate has raged for thousands of years. In this volume there are well known cases - Borley Rectory, the most haunted house in England, the Phantom Battle of Edgehill, the Drummer of Tedworth - but also lesser known occurrences, such as the late Nelly Butler and the Dark Lady of Bognor Regis.  There are also chapters on poltergeists, non-human apparitions, spirit voices and demons.
  • In the remote barren wasteland of North-western Australia, three  wandering thugs make a murderous bid to gain ownership of a newly discovered nickel fortune by crippling the legitimate owners' vehicles and setting the occupants adrift, without food or water, to die in the searing heat. The victims attempt the seemingly-impossible desert crossing, close-herded by the thugs.  But the killers have reckoned without the power of gratitude, when the victims receive assistance from someone they never expected to meet...
  • A wickedly perceptive account of a deer culler's life.  A deer culler is often solitary by choice, venturing 'into town' only when en route to another critical area or to blow his money on beer, women or whatever else he's been dreaming about all season!  Here is not only the rewards and punishments of such a career, but also the uproarious  oddity of the men who pursue it.
  • Arbonne, warm and sun-blessed, a land of olive trees and vineyards, of troubadours, love and the sensuous, flamboyant men and women who dwell in the castles and towns of a country dedicated to the worship of the Mother Goddess. Moving through this decadence is the sardonic, bitter Blaise, mercenary captain of Gorhaut, who must soon face the darkest secrets of his past. Gorhaut is a land of dour, hard Northerners who worship the god Corannos and who are rapacious in war. Their ambitious, debauched young king looks to the south and sees Arbonne, ripe for the taking, blasphemously worshipping a goddess and ruled by a woman. The men and women of the two countries will find their lives and the beliefs of life put in the balance, and Arbonne will learn that love and music may be powers only in a civilised time, for neither can combat the power of fire and sword. Cover art by John Howe.

  • Fraser's third Jemima Shore mystery. Everyone loved Chloe Fontaine. Tiny and exquisitely pretty, her fragile looks hid her considerable talent as a novelist. There had been a series of admirers, lovers and husbands ever since her arrival in literary London. It hardly seemed to matter about the odd contrast between the disorderliness of her private life and the careful formality of her work. Then came the sudden and strange disappearance of Chloe, leaving Jemima in charge of her new London flat....

  • A novel based on historical fact, it tells the complete story of the part in the Bounty mutiny by the man known as Alexander Smith - real name John Adams - his fate and that of the eight other mutineers. The book offers adventure and excitement as well as a logical, commonsense view of events that have intrigued historians since Bligh's first dispatches from Timor reached London.
  • Here is the full account of the air actions of the Falklands conflict in 1982.

  • In the not so distant future the world hasn't changed that much - men and women still laugh, fall in love and sip wine - but some will live forever as retreads, old souls surgically implanted into the empty bodies of the young. Voss Geraghty is a retread, a retiring government researcher rewarded with a new body. In this new life he wants fun, sex and adventure - what he finds is disappointment.  His 'shell' was donated by a young man who was not eager to die - the shell is damaged, Voss is impotent so he must settle for adventure this time out. In his unusual choice, Voss becomes a troubleshooter for the Space Service and an inadvertent hero. When he returns, the government, controlled by retreads, capitalises on his fame to support the immortality programme against an underground rebellion determined to overthrow the regime of death for the young so that the old may live eternally. The rebellion movement has the technology to cure Voss of his impotence in return for his help in destroying the retread centres.  Still he hesitates - until he meets Alicia and falls in love. He will die in the destruction of the retread centres - but he wants to experience love as well.
