Star of Gypsies

It is a thousand years from now.

The tenuous galactic empire humanity has cast across the skies depends for its very existence on hyperspace and the pilots who can ride its bizarre force-fields. And these pilots are gypsies. The Romany have come into their own. But there is a price: the legendary Romany Star. All the leverage the gypsies can bring to bear is used in the search for their ancestral home.

Sulking in luxurious exile, he has been planning his return to power and reminiscing over his extraordinary life.

An uneasy truce is broken by the British, who refuse to believe that the might of the British Empire can be bested by their former colony.

This will enable them to bring in colonial troops from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic to attack the United States along the undefended Gulf coast.

When the Americans attack the road, the war bogs down in futile jungle warfare. Only a brilliant plan by General Robert E. Lee enables the United States to broaden the war and attack the British forces where they least expect it – very close to home.

Clash of Star-Kings

You might have thought that the Fiesta of the Holy Hermit in the Mexican town of Los Remedios was just another of those quaint colourful ceremonies that the Indian natives put on each year for the mystification of tourists. And perhaps for the past few hundred years it had bee nothing more than that – but this year was to be different.
For Jacob Clay, the American expatriate, had been poking into the buried secrets of that mountain community which dated back before the Aztec Empire, and he had begun to entertain a shocking suspicion. Before that fiesta was over he was due to learn the volcanic reality behind:
The Holy Hermit – a mummy that was not a mummy…
Tlaloc – a statue that was not just a thing of stone…
Huitzilopochtli – a legend that was stark realism…
And what started as a holiday turned into a nightmare on which pivoted the fates of the very stars themselves!
Stars and Stripes Triumphant

Stars and Stripes Triumphant

The Stars and Stripes trilogy is the story of the war that never was, but might so easily have happened: the war of the 1860s between the United States of America and the British Empire.

It began with an ill-considered seizure of a British ship, escalated with an ill-considered letter to Abraham Lincoln, and continued with an ill-starred invasion of the territory of the USA by an incensed British government. The first modern war – with iron-clad ships, rapid-firing guns, trenches, mass armies and massive casualties, was taking place, not between the industrial northern states and the agricultural southern ones, but between the two great English-speaking nations. Who happened also to be the two most powerful nations on the planet.

In the stunning conclusion to this series, the Irish become involved and a most surprising ending is the culmination of the ill-fated war.
Catch a Falling Star

Catch a Falling Star

A hundred thousand years from now, it was discovered that a star was approaching the world on a collision course. Its discoverer, Creohan, figured there might be time to save the world if he could arouse everyone to the danger.
But the Earth had become a strange and kaleidoscopic place in that distant era. Too many empires had risen and fallen, too many cultures had spread their shattered fragments across a planet whose very maps had long since been forgotten. People were too busy with their own private dreams to pay attention to one more new alarm.
The story Creohan’s effort to Catch a Falling Star is one of John Brunner’s most colourful science-fiction concepts.
