Together in one volume for the first time ever - the classic novel of epic future conflict THE FOREVER WAR, its sequel FOREVER FREE, and the companion novel FOREVER PEACE

FOREVER WAR
William Mandella is a reluctant hero, fighting in a distant interstellar war against unknowable and unconquerable aliens. But his greatest test will be returning to Earth. A few months of his tour of duty equate to centuries on his homeworld, during which he becomes increasingly isolated from the world he has been fighting to protect.

FOREVER FREE
Mandella returns home for the last time - to find humanity has evolved into a group conciousness which excludes him. Alone, alienated and missing the certainties of combat, he and his fellow verterans search for an escape - and finally look towards space.

FOREVER PEACE
A war is raging, fought by indestructible machines operated remotely by soldiers miles away - and for soldiers like Julian Class, war is truly hell. So when he and his companion, Dr Amelia Harding, uncover something which could take the universe back to square one, the prospect isn't so much terrifying, as terrifyingly tempting ...

The hoax proposed to John Baird by a two-bit con man in a seedy Key West bar was shady but potentially profitable. With little left to lose, the struggling, middle-aged Hemingway scholar agreed to forge a manuscript and pass it off as Papa's lost masterpiece. But Baird never realized his actions would shatter the history of his own Earth . . . and others. Now the unsuspecting academic is trapped out of time - propelled through a series of grim parallel worlds - and pursued by an interdimensional hitman with a literary license to kill.

More even than space travel, the Stileman Process had altered twenty-first century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensured that every ten years or so, the ailing aging body could be restored to youthful vigour and health.There was a catch of course. The cost. Every ten years or so you have to come up with £1,000,000 minimum or die.For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it was that time again. It was while he was casting around for that vital next million that he came across Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life. And made two major discoveries.Not all Stileman 'immortals' were born - or created - the same. And someone is trying to kill them. All of them.
