  • "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!

  • Stories of immigrants in Australia. The contributors to this anthology include David Martin, Judah Waten, Desmond O'Grady, Patricia Rolfe and others.  The tales hold up a mirror to those who live in Australia, and a beacon to those elsewhere who want to know what 'Australia' means in terms of everyday living. Story titles include such intriguements as Willy Ah Foo; Matron's Day; Grandfather Tiger; Saturday Afternoon and This Freedom.  
  • The final volume in The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. From bitter defeat on the Isle of One Tree, Thomas, Linden Avery and the Giants of the Search take ship again.  But the Starfare's Gem is crippled and, captured by the Dolewind, sets course for the perilous shifting seas of Giantish legend. The Search is led back to Land, now dangerously close to destruction from the ravages of the Sunbane. And in the fastness of Revelstone, the Clave feed the growing power of the Banefire with the blood of the Land's people. As they are drawn to the cavern below Mount Thunder, even the white gold Covenent and Avery carry may not serve against Lord Foul's powers - for once the wild magic is unleashed, the Arch of Time will crack and Lord Foul's conquest of the Land is assured.
  • 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....
