The Paradox Men

Introduction by Brian Aldiss The Paradox Men is a science-fiction classic of its kind — a full-blooded adventure story of derring-do and distressed damsels, set after the Third Great War when North and South America are united into one country: Imperial America. A slave state run by a small noble elite who flaunt their wealth by using, and abusing, the one commodity that only the rich can have: human labor. But working underground, persecuted by the police, is an organization dedicated to the overthrow of government and the existing way of life and the establishment of freedom. The Society of Thieves was the only organization that flouted authority in America Imperial: they robbed the rich to buy freedom for the slaves. They were well equipped and trained for their job and had friends and informers in high places ready to reveal where the wealth of the nobles was hidden. And Alar was the best Thief of them all — for he had senses not found in ordinary men, senses that accurately warned him when danger was near. But Alar had amnesia and did not know his true identity though sometimes he sensed that there was a purpose in his actions that was not entirely his own volition. When Keiris, wife of the Imperial Chancellor saw him, she sensed that he was something special and helped him to elude pursuit even though it put her own life in danger. And in trips to the Moon and even the Sun itself, Alar begins to see what part he is destined to play in the struggle for men’s freedom.

The Other Foot

Martin had all the comforts that Earth could provide. As a top-flight newspaper reporter he travelled, met beautiful girls, had enough money and plenty of fun.
The one day he visited the biped recently captured on Brecht’s Planet and kept as a curiosity in the zoo. Suddenly the earth trembled, the world went black…and when he awoke he was inside the cage, scrabbling against the bars with three-fingered, scaly green hands…
\——————————————————–
Two creatures, two vastly different worlds – bound together by a fatal tie
A scientific experiment went wrong and Martin Naumchik – newspaper reporter, cosmopolite, dashing adventurer – found himself inhabiting the body of a scaly green biped from Brecht’s Planet, kept as a curiosity in a zoo cage.
The biped inherited Martin’s body, his girlfriends, his reputation, his freedom – but not his knowledge of the world. Even the question of how to get food was baffling.
The first problem was one of simple survival of two creatures trapped in alien worlds. The second problem was more difficult: how to reverse the process of transformation and shed these hated identities.

The Oracle

First of a compelling trilogy, full of action, betrayals and mystery, drawing on the rituals of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians.In the distant land of deserts and islands, the servants of the god rule the land, his wishes conveyed through the Oracle and interpreted by the High Priestess. Mirany is the new Bearer, afraid of her perilous duties for the god in the rituals of the Oracle, and fearful of her secret questioning … Does the god truly exist? The priestess is corrupt and in secret partnership with the General, ruler, since the God-on-Earth, the Archon, has no real power – chosen as a child, his face always masked, never seen by outsiders. Should any national tragedy occur, he is also the sacrifice. When the old Archon dies, his spirit migrates into a child, and there are several candidates for succession. But Mirany begins to experience the real visions of the god, discovers which child is the rightful heir, and that the General and High Priestess intend to choose another child and seize power. With only a tomb-robbing scribe and a mad musician for allies, Mirany begins her quest – knowing that, if she is betrayed, her fate will be to be walled up alive in the Archon’s tomb …

The Onion Girl

**2017 Aurora Awards Best of Decade Finalist**
In novel after novel, and story after story, Charles de Lint has brought an entire imaginary North American city to vivid life. Newford: where magic lights dark streets; where myths walk clothed in modern shapes; where a broad cast of extraordinary and affecting people work to keep the whole world turning.
At the center of all the entwined lives in Newford stands a young artist named Jilly Coppercorn, with her tangled hair, her paint-splattered jeans, a smile perpetually on her lips–Jilly, whose paintings capture the hidden beings that dwell in the city’s shadows. Now, at last, de Lint tells Jilly’s own story…for behind the painter’s fey charm lies a dark secret and a past she’s labored to forget. And that past is coming to claim her now.
“I’m the onion girl,” Jilly Coppercorn says. “Pull back the layers of my life, and you won’t find anything at the core. Just a broken child. A hollow girl.” She’s very, very good at running. But life has just forced Jilly to stop.

The Necromancer’s Betrayal

All Elysia wants is a normal life. A life free of magic and her family’s expectations. The last thing she wants is to be a practicing necromancer.
That changes when Elysia meets a dead man. His presence so close to her home can’t be a coincidence. Throw in his polite demeanor and good looks, and she knows another necromancer is messing with her. So she does what any of her kind would do: she soul binds the dead man and makes him her own.
But the solution isn’t that simple. James, her newly acquired dead man, is no necromancer’s pawn. He’s a grim: a near mythical being of incredible power and a prize in the necromancer world. Yet Elysia sees the man beneath the power. James is as much a slave to his magic as she is to hers.
Determined to free him, Elysia must seek help from her family. Can she convince them that he’s not a prize to be claimed? Or will she have to rejoin the necromancer world, sacrificing her own freedom to save him?
(The Necromancer’s Betrayal is a 43,000-word novella.)

The Mind’s Eye

For centuries, men have been dreaming of telepathy, the power to read and influence the minds of others. Now, all around the world, telepaths are finally starting to appear. Men and women are developing awesome powers with the potential to dramatically change society. Governments are soon starting to become aware of them, even recruiting them, while striving to keep knowledge of their abilities hidden from the general public. But academic researchers too are discovering telepaths and it isn’t long before awareness of their existence starts to spread. But non-telepaths, ordinary people, don’t want to have their minds read or controlled; the telepaths soon find themselves widely regarded with fear and hatred. Inevitably, some of them want to fight back.
In this alternative history, albeit set in the near-future, Christopher Nuttall explores the likely impact of the appearance of telepathic abilities in some members of the human race. While telepathy and related psionic abilities have long been a mainstay of science-fiction, the impact of their emergence has not been as well imagined as, say, that of fantastic mutations. Almost everyone has something to hide, thoughts they wouldn’t want made public. Governments have secrets they wish to keep, whether for national security or just to hold on to power. How would the general populace react to mind-readers in their midst? How would telepaths respond when threatened by a frightened mob, or constrained by politicians fearful of the disclosure of scandals and long-buried secrets. Intelligence agencies would be both alarmed at the threats and intrigued by the possibilities. Would all nations respond in the same way?
And then there’s the endless possibilities for criminals and terrorists…
