An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.

TECHNOLOGY'S GREATEST TRIUMPH. HUMANKIND'S LAST HOPE...

Daniel Kitajima was a creature of mind and machine. His artificial limbs were endowed with super-human strength, his perceptual abilities enhanced with telescopic vision, radar and infrared. With proper care, he would live forever - except for one grim inevitable fact...

The Solar System itself was about to be destroyed. The sun was heating up, scorching Earth's deserts and transforming its polar icefields into quagmires. The entire galaxy was in danger. And nothing human could halt the oncoming disaster.

But Daniel Kitajima was not exactly human...

Lovecraft's Book

Authors:
Richard A. Lupoff

When unworldly fantasist H.P. Lovecraft was approached by crafty fanatic George Sylvester Viereck to write an American Mein Kampf, the bait was almost irresistible.If Lovecraft would lend his pen and his Anglo-Saxon stock to the fascist cause, Viereck would arrange the publication in proper book form of a volume of his stories, hitherto scattered in pulp magazines.Whilst the famous horror writer had some pretty obnoxious political opinions, his friends didn't really believe he knew what deep waters he was getting himself into. And so began a concerted effort to keep H.P. Lovecraft out of the clutches of the forces of darkness that were to plunge the world into war...

The N'Alabamians have carried their tribal prejudices to the farthest reached of the galaxy, like the other minorities expelled from the Earth by the dominant Pan-Semitic Alliance. There's New Transvaal. New Cathay. And New Haiti, a black world where Papa Doc's descendants carry on the old ways.When New Alabama and New Haiti go to war with each other, it's a bloody black-versus-white stalemate. Until the N'Haitians develop a horrific new secret weapon based on a very ancient tradition.Imagine you're a clean-cut N'Alabamian good ol' boy, giving your all up there in the space fleet, and you suddenly realise the enemy crews aren't human at all. They're what people back on Earth used to call Zombies...
