  • Book III of A World Of Tiers.  A world of tiers and layers - the Amerind level, the Garden of Eden level, the Talanac, the Atlantean...A universe of green skies and fabled beasts. It was the playground-cosmos of the Lord Jadawin, with transgravitational gates to the other levels and the other worlds. But now those gates were being sabotaged to permit the entry of an invading force of 'Bellers' - human bodies housing the transferred minds of rebel Lords and their minions, who sought two things: total domination of every Lo9rd's private Cosmos - now that they had achieved immortality; and the life of Kickaha the Trickster, who knew too much...Cover art by Melvyn Grant.

  • Kenneth Williams, star of stage, radio and Carry On, put together this delicious selection of witty put-downs, retorts and come-backs - the sort of things we all wish we'd thought of! Such as Lady Astor to Winston Churchill:  "If you were my husband, I'd poison your coffee." To which the great man replied, "If you were my wife, I'd drink it."
  • Cora Lansquenet had always been tactless - and her well bred family chose to ignore the remark she made after her brother Richard's funeral:  "He was murdered, wasn't he?" They remembered it the next day, when Cora was found murdered with a hatchet - and several days later, when Cora's companion was sent a sliver of wedding cake steeped in arsenic...But by then, the family solicitor had called in Hercule Poirot.
  • Something is happening to the children of Eastbury. Something that causes healthy babies to turn cold in their cribs - and strikes at the heart of every parent's darkest fears. Something is taking the children one by one. An entire town waits on the edge of panic.  There must be a reason...
