They came out of the great abyss which lay around the Earth, from the planet of a star so distant that it could not be seen with the naked eye. Their purpose was survival and the conquest of Earth. They were alien and possessed a mysterious force which lay at the very origin of human comprehension; the ability to enter into a man’s mind, to make him think the thoughts they chose, to make him hear and see and feel the things they wanted.
Against such a force there seemed no defence; for who could say that the man or woman by his side was not motivated by one of these creatures? Who could say that his own thoughts and senses belonged to him and not to some ‘thing’ seated in some alien way inside his brain?
There lived on Mars, 500,000 years ago, a race so intelligent, so superior to ours, that they knew the secret of everlasting life. They chose instead-to have one man come back to life exactly 500,000 years after his death!
His reappearance in the Galaxy World was enough to set planet against planet, ideology against ideology, man against man, and life against death.
An adventure story set on a habitable Venus, populated by wild and fierce beasts, and humanoids with white skin, white hair, red eyes.
The Ruml were highly intelligent creatures. They had an elaborate civilisation, advanced technology and a strict moral social code – moral according to their values. They had already over-run six worlds, exterminated the native life and colonised the planets.
But an ordinary citizen of Earth, Jason Barchar, was able to penetrate the mind, think the thoughts, see the sights, feel the sensations of one of the Ruml. And on Jason depended the fate of the world – for the Ruml were preparing to invade Earth.
Lila Makindi grows up in East Africa in a peaceful and harmonious 22nd century world, which has succeeded our own age of extravagance, environmental damage, and warfare.
Its citizens know that the Space Communications Administration, better known as Bardo, is guiding the planet benevolently, thanks to contact with wise aliens by means, not of grandiose spaceships, but of psychic travel powered by the sexual techniques of tantric yoga.
Wonderfully, Lila is chosen for psychic starflight. But she discovers that in reality mental starflight is spinning a web of protection around the world to safeguard the human race from a malign alien energy force, the Starbeast.
Yet is this the true reality? Only when Lila travels to Tibet does she discover the actual, unexpected purpose behind Bardo.
The Wasteland people, fighting to save the Earth, are being driven into the fearsome radioactive Firesands by the relentless advance of the Slavers.
As Finn, Baer and the other warriors gather for a last great struggle the arrival of an alien spaceship reveals a new threat, even more deadly than the robot-like aliens.
Finn is captures and enslaved within the mighty walls of the alien Citadel, the Slavers’ mountain fortress. Relying on nothing more than his uncanny wilderness instincts, he eventually escapes only to learn the devastating truth about the Slavers and their final plans for Earth and its people.
The new millennium has barely begun when a vast fleet of alien vessels descends without warning on the Earth. Some starships blaze mighty trails of fire; some pop into view, unfathomably silent. Three different but equally strange kinds of alien emerge. Wide-eyed UFOlogists who rush to welcome them are scooped up like bugs collected for study.
The aliens make no response when the governments attempt to communicate with them, but a single act of resistance to them provokes massive retaliation. This is the first major catastrophe of the alien years and it will be followed by others. In silence the aliens take control of the world, effortlessly enslaving what remains of its population.
On a remote California ranch, the Carmichaels are a family of blue-eyed, straight-backed patriots, flawed by narrow thinking and repressed emotions – but redeemed by their courage. With them rests the slender hope that natives of Earth may one day be free.
