All of his life Flinx had lived in the marketplace on Drallar with his foster mother, an ageing shopkeeper. But Flinx did not belong there and although he knew nothing of his true parents he was determined to find out about himself and the strange mental abilities that he had been endowed with. His search was to lead him into the clutches of Challis, one of the most depraved and powerful men in the Commonwealth ... on to Terra where the records of his birth were kept ... and finally to Ulru-Ujurr where the priceless and mysterious Janus jewels came from and where a new civilisation was about to be born.

Flinx's Folly

Authors:
Alan Dean Foster

It's a good thing Flinx is no stranger to rouble, because he's swimming in it. After surviving an attack by a new gang of assailants, Flinx is spirited away and enlisted in a battle against an extra-galactic threat. Hidden behind the Great Emptiness, in a place where it seems matter and energy have never been, there is only evil. Pure evil that is approaching him, accelerating. This terrifying, high-stakes adventure through perilous new realms will rocket Flinx into the very heart of danger - and into the arms of the only woman he's ever loved. As he and Pip bravely travel to a place where no man or mini-drag has gone before, Flinx discovers he has a few more friends than he thought - and far more enemies than he ever imagined.

Pip and Flinx: Book Ten.Never have the cares of the universe lain so heavily on Flinx's shoulders, nor the forces against him seemed so invincible. Pursued by a newly revealed sect of doomsday fanatics and hunted by factions inside and outside the Commonwealth, he is expected to single-handedly avert a looming galactic crisis (or bear responsibility for the consequences.) Flinx can be forgiven for feeling a slight touch of melancholy. According to his ship's Al, there's only one solution for what ails Flinx - a vacation. But with increasing number of enemies chasing him with ever greater enthusiasm, Flinx must find a getaway shrouded in obscurity. It seems that Jast, a planet smack in the middle of nowhere, is prefect, but trouble can find Flinx anywhere. What he doesn't know is that his vacation paradise is a danger zone of the highest magnitude. And by the time he learns the truth, it may be too late.

Pip and Flinx; Book Eleven.In the outer depths of the universe lies that Great Emptiness, behind which lurks something dreadful - something that is now raging straight for the Commonwealth. To avert catastrophe, Flinx must find a conscious planet size weapons system and, using his heightened mental powers, coax it into joining the battle against the behemoth from beyond. So Pip and Flinx sail their little spaceship into the unknown, only to be forced down for emergency repairs on planet Arrwad, home to primitive sentiments and therefore off limits to space travellers. But rules never applied to Flinx. Upon his arrival, Flinx is besieged by hordes bent on worshipping him as a god. Escaping this fate will be as impossible as fulfilling his dire mission. What's a deity to do?

Sentenced to Prism

The Humanx Commonwealth: Book Five.He was smart. He was good. He was backed by the Commonwealth's best equipment. So what could possibly go wrong? 'In the midst of life...' thought Evan Orgel. A whole lot of life. Alien life-form upon alien life-form, crawling, floating, wriggling, darting and oozing. The entire unexplored surface of the planet Prism was unimaginably alive. '...we are in death.' His death. His Mobile Hostile World suit - the very latest, state-of-the-art, off-world protection gear - had just failed. Attacked in just about the only way its proud makers hadn't thought of. So there he lay, a hermit crab trapped in his own armour, while the myriad alien life-forms of prism crawled, floated, wriggled, darted and oozed about him, getting ready to open him up like a tin of upmarket cat food. Evan Orgell was full of misery.

Kidnapped, knocked unconscious and crash landed - all quite accidentally - they were about to find out that life on the sub- zero wasteland was full of incident. Bored they would not be.

Pip and Flinx: Book Two.Repler was a humanx-controlled planet, a minor outpost of the flourishing Commonwealth. It housed two of the most terrible threats ever to have faced the material universe. First was the Vom. A vast mass of liquid blackness, it had waited half a million years to be discovered. The wait was over. Second there was Bloodyhype, a killer drug with no known antidote. It caused instant addiction, followed by excruciatingly slow death. Flinx was a sanitation engineer, strictly on the sidelines. But his role in the affairs of the planet soon took on a more ominous aspect.

Just when it looked as if Ethan Fortune might be able to breathe a warm sigh of relief at getting away from the icy world of Tran-ky-ky, he was ordered to stay right where he was. It seemed the scientists at the outpost of Brass Monkey had spotted something odd - an isolated and ominous atmosphere hot spot far to the south. Only Ethan, along with the huge, hell-raising Skua September, had the local knowledge and the persuasiveness to get the Tran to mount an expedition. Only the giant icerigger Slanderscree could cope with the conditions. Knowing you're wanted may warm the cockles of the human heart but Ethan knew at once that the rest of him was going to be exposed to freezing cold, considerable danger and a whole lot more of the adventures that kept coming his way...
