Lionel Salkind was glad for a visit from his twin brother Leo; the two rarely saw each other. Tehn their plane went down, and as he lost consciousness Lionel knew that Leo was dead.
Lionel woke up in a hospital, to the eerie news that he owed his life to bits of his dead brother’s brain transplanted into his own skull. It was a very experimental operation, but it seemed to have been successful.
And then the memories began. Terrifying snatches of memory that had no place in Lionel’s own quiet past. Leo’s memories, calling him somewhere to finish a job half-done – a dangerous job whose importance to the world Lionel had not even begun to grasp.
Brother to Demons, Brother to Gods begins with a genetic engineering program conceived by the Smithwicks, a family of “Creators” who first improve on inadequate Homo sap (“preman”) with two laboratory species and then come up with the “stargods.” These powerful Frankenstein fabrications, however, send the Creators chasing back to their labs in a last desperate attempt to undo the consequences of their folly. A thousand years later, two “preman” waifs, Davey and Bugler, find unsuspected powers genetically programmed into their minds and bodies, and realize that they are to be the parents of the liberating “ultiman.”
The power of one…
Job. Against all evidence he never lost faith in his fellow man.
Job. Born on he bottom rung in an age that made ours seem Golden, his life went rapidly downhill from there.
Job. Cast adrift into a world he never made, but would change forever.
Job. Sometimes, one true man can make the difference.
The Earth does not belong to man alone
The Himalayas bury their secrets well. Two skulls unearthed in the cradle of the human race – the remote heights of Kashmir – throw evolutionary theory into chaos. But a far more disturbing secret lies hidden deep in the bleak mountains and snow-swept valleys unseen by human eyes.
A few miles from the explosive triangle of tension where Afghanistan and Pakistan border on India the story of the century breaks. And the echoes of the most shattering revelation yet made to man threaten to plunge the world into total war which will turn the cradle of the human race into its final grave.
‘I am Oona, the shape-taker, Grafin von Bek, daughter of Oone the Dreamthief and Elric, Sorcerer Emperor of Melniboné’
Ulric von Bek, now married to Oona, the Daughter of Dreams, has been abducted by a band of spectral natives, while travelling through Canada.
Oona gives chase, en route to the Skrayling Oak which contains all realities, to brave the maelstrom of a mythic America – where malign forces try to pitch her against Elric, an aspect of the Eternal Champion and her father.
Meanwhile, the captured Ulric finds himself once more in the multiverse where finally he is reunited with his alternate self, Elric, and his wife, Oona. There, the three of them must take arms against an impossible enemy, bent on destroying the Skrayling Oak. For if the tree falls, so too does the multiverse …
The vampires have been vanquished! Harry Keogh and the armies of the dead have destroyed the evil that once plagued the world. Nathan and Nestor, secret twin sons of the Necroscope and a proud gypsy woman, were children when their father, his humanity poisoned by his fearsome struggles, sacrificed himself to save mankind.
Yet there are vampires still, vampires crueller and stranger than any the Necroscope had faced. When these new, merciless killers swoop out of the sky, Nathan and Nestor are men – but they have few of Harry Keogh’s miraculous powers.
Torn from each other by battle, the sons of the Necroscope journey across the vampire world, exploring its mysteries, each seeking the powerful, terrible vampires, his missing brother…and the woman they both love!
It seemed like a good idea; even a noble experiment. But the outcome was sheer hell.
When the Balduin brothers escaped from the tedium of the human hive of Atlanta, Georgia, they had a mission. They were to voyage to the planet Trope, contact a tribe there known as the Ouemartsee, and transport it to Glaparca for a useful purpose.
But suddenly the Balduin brothers discovered that they were in the slave trade, and that the Ouemartsee had made one of them a God . . .
THE SEPARATION is the story of twin brothers, rowers in the 1936 Olympics (where they met Hess, Hitler’s deputy); one joins the RAF, and captains a Wellington; he is shot down after a bombing raid on Hamburg and becomes Churchill’s aide-de-camp; his twin brother, a pacifist, works with the Red Cross, rescuing bombing victims in London. But this is not a straightforward story of the Second World War: this is an alternate history: the two brothers – both called J.L. Sawyer – live their lives in alternate versions of reality. In one, the Second World War ends as we imagine it did; in the other, thanks to efforts of an eminent team of negotiators headed by Hess, the war ends in 1941.
THE SEPARATION is an emotionally riveting story of how the small man can make a difference; it’s a savage critique of Winston Churchill, the man credited as the saviour of Britain and the Western World, and it’s a story of how one perceives and shapes the past.
In the beginning…
… there was Egan Drake, the genius who dreamed of spreading mankind among the galaxies.
Then came Megan, who took on her brother’s mantle and made his imaginings real. She gathered around her the finest in their fields – biology and astronautics, computer science and fusion propulsion – and fired them with her vision.
And finally was born The Project: a thousand tiny spacecraft crawling like electromechanical wombs towards the stars, each bearing the genetic seeds for a future colony of man.
And some fell on stony ground, and some fell on fertile ground and some…
“My lover, my protector, my friend, my doctor, my brother – they’re all killing me.”
Peter Roos cannot help knowing the thoughts of those around him. A rare physical condition has given him that power. Now he has “heard” about the government’s secret plan to give up control of America to the military – to build an underground city for themselves in the event of a nuclear attack. Unfortunately for Roos, the government knows he knows. And the project’s sponsors – including his senator brother – have no choice.
They must get him out of the way – permanently!
