"Heard of you?" The princess spoke with a great weariness. "We hear about all the adventurers of the galaxy. So far all have failed. You will fail too. I know it - but I must go on trying to find the prince. When you are dead and scattered into the atoms we shall find another strong man and try again. One day, perhaps, we shall succeed. Maybe you will, but I doubt it. You too will be destroyed like all the others."With these words of confidence ringing in his ears, Big Bill Jarrett was sent out on an impossible journey - one he knew could kill him if he went, and would kill him if he didn't.

Seven thousand years ago one of Earth's earliest civilisations was confronted by a menace from the stars - and died in a world-shaking effort to destroy that cosmic monster. But the death of that forgotten empire was not in vain, for they did succeed in entombing that dimension-shaking thing out of sight and harm to humanity. But even their efforts could not make that burial permanent - and after seven millennia the monster stirred again, cracking through the new world of today.

A mind-shaking glimpse into the future of the earth: a brilliantly imagined, horrifyingly plausible glimpse into a world where the social elite, the Uppers, live in absolute luxury, boosting themselves with 'Joy Juice'. The 'Joy Juice' is the vital life fluid extracted from the workers, the second class citizens whose life is a constant search for and movement from one trip, one hallucination to the next. It is only when the workers are tripping that the Uppers can extract the 'Joy Juice'. But what happens when the good trips turn into bad ones? When pleasant dreams become nightmares?

At last as they reached out through the ghostly transparencies of the galaxy the men from Earth encountered an alien race completely non-human in appearance. They were the real aliens. Their physiology differed gruesomely from Terrans' - could men hope their psychology would not?The Unknown Non Human Aliens - the Unha - replied to peace overtures with immediate hostility. So, reluctantly, the men from Earth forged a weapon of awesome power. Created out of the shattered bodies of men and women - men like Siegfried Ritter, Giuseppe Tozzi and Eugene Valois - Blazon set fire to the Galaxy.For Doctor Marjorie Rothwell the existence of Blazon challenged the basic assumptions forced on humanity by alien intransigence; but the action-packed story of Blazon does more than explore the running sore of human aggression in its understanding of human sacrifice.

Terran Corps scattered their ships outward into the glittering galaxies. Solterra's prime objective: orbital reconstruction of the far-flung planets.

As Chief Commander, Stephen Strang aggressively explored the cosmos for the glory of his beloved Earth. He could boast that he had moved more planets into orbit around Sol than any other. Strang felt smugly safe against alien "sharks" - until he discovered the vast time-bomb that was planet Vesta's core. . .

Gigantic were The Demons who terrorized the underground kingdom of Archon. Yet, who were they? Whence came their fantastic power? Why did they wage ruthless and relentless war against Archon? These were questions to which there was no answer until Stead arrived in Archon, apparently from nowhere.Only after he had been a Forager for some months, and had experienced the spine-chilling dangers of The Outside did Stead arrive at a solution. Even then he had a difficult task convincing the Controllers, who, for generations, had insulated themselves against the harsh truth. Only those who had actually seen The Outside - the Foragers, Soldiers and Workers - could properly understand.
