ZAKYM: World of the night-rulers and the day people. A world teetering on the edge of nightmare. The Cyclan orders were clear – ‘Find Dumarest. Find him before war erupts on ZAKYM.’ But Zakym could hold the key to Dumarest’s search for his lost home planet – and for that he would risk everything. (First published 1977)
Stranded on a strange planet with a race of alien vampires! Red O’Reilly, the hero, is among three prisoners being transported by car with a guard and a social worker on a rainy night in contemporary California. Suddenly, in a flash, the car is off the road and into the middle of a jungle – which disappears as the rain ceases, leaving them stranded in a trackless desert! After a trek across the desert, evidently on an alien planet far from earth, they discover a strange, ruined city inhabited by a race of vampire aliens – whom they must battle for survival.
