  • Book III of Worlds of Tiers. It was 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 Lord Jadawin, with trans-gravitational gates to the other worlds and levels. But now those gates are 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 were seeking two things - total domination of every Lord's private cosmos, now that they had achieved immortality, and the life of Kickaha the Trickster, who knew too much.
  • London, 1871. The rich man in his Bayswater villa, the poor man at his gate casing the place.  For many, crime was the only way to get a start in life and ostentatious  wealth was a temptation. In a time of an emergent police force and no telephones, a wave of burglaries terrorises the well-to-do. It was enough to put ideas into  Val Leary's head.  An Irish labourer, he lacked the tools, the expertise and the capital but the Soho underworld would provide those.  What he needed was an inside contact.  That's where Janey came in: a kitchenmaid, the lowest of the servants, in an age when dismissal without references was tantamount to certain death.  Will she risk it?

  • Pilgrim is again at the centre of strange and mysterious affairs.  When last heard from, the Flying Dutchman of Spacetime was busy robbing the Pyramids so that he could fuel his spaceship/time-machine.  His latest scheme is to reach back in time and save President Abraham Lincoln from assassination...After the fact!
