  • Rose von Bek travels many of London's byways, glimpsing many lives and and many worlds. At times she meets with knights of the road Dick Turpin and Colonel Jack, a man better known to his mukhamirim fellows as plain Sam Oakenhurst. Othertimes with Prince Lobkowitz or her mother Nellie in Begg Mansions, Sporting Club Square. But London is only one of many such scales of existence awaiting the adventurous Rose. One of them, perhaps Las Cascadas - pinned 'twixt  brisk Atlantic and seductive Mediterranean - or Lost Pines Ranch, Texas, home to her eccentric uncle, will surely bring her back to the nefarious Captain Horatio Quelch, pirate of the Singularity, enemy of her kind...Ultimately, the great war between Law and Chaos, which some will call the War in Heaven, spills over into all realms of existence and the final battle is fought to determine the Nature of Reality itself.

  • 1940: Nazi Germany has conquered most of Western Europe and Lisbon in neutral Portugal has become a hotbed of international intrigue as the world waits for the invasion of England.  In this hotbed is an ambitious plot to kidnap the Duke of Windsor, which will set Hitler's seal  upon his anticipated defeat of the British.
  • An Anglican monk and an implacable, charismatic leader of the Anti-Apartheid  Movement, Trevor Huddlestone was a friend and hero to many, including Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and Walter Sisulu.  His victory over the racist policies of the nationalist government in South Africa transformed the history and politics of an entire continent. With black and white photos.
  • "Arnie" is probably the most intriguing and improbable movie pehnomenon of modern times.  Born in a remote Austrian village, the son of the local policeman, he became the world's greatest body builder then the highest-paid film actor.  Here it all is:  From Hercules in New York and Conan the Barbarian to The Terminator and Twins.
  • For the first time ever, David Bell is in love with a woman instead of a ship. He has been at sea since boyhood and is now captain of the old and leaking brigantine Cannibal. Out of his oddly assorted group of passengers, he feels drawn to Charlotte King, a beautiful young widow with a mysterious past. But he's puzzled by her determination to cross the Pacific in his ship and by her insistence that he should not call at Hawaii. Ramsey, the Cannibal's mate recalls seeing her face in a Hawaiian newspaper with screaming headlines...And then the Cannibal's leak worsens, and they must make their way - to Hawaii!

  • Book IV of Incarnations of Immortality. This was a world where both science and magic worked and where magic carpets competed in the market with shiny new cars. The Incarnations of Death, Fate, Time, War, and Nature were real beings caught up in a continuing effort to defeat the wiles of Satan. Mym was prince of a province in still-divided India - a dutiful son, but when the Rajah interfered in his love life for the third time, it was just too much. Rather than give in to the Rajah's wedding plans, he agreed to assume the office of War and wield the Red Sword. For a time he was quite happy, believing that his efforts in the constant petty Earth wars could ameliorate some of the injustice and suffering.  But he soon became aware that behind all his involvement were the traps of Satan, designed to lead him astray. Working in secret, he organised a great rebellion among the Damned, and Satan seemed to capitulate. But he soon learned that the episode was just another snare of Satan...Cover art by Michael Whelan.
