    In these 'scientific romances' H. G. Wells sees the present reflected in the future and the future in the present. His aim is to provoke rather than predict. The Sleeper falls into a trance, waking up two centuries later as the richest man in a world of new technologies, power-greedy leaders, sensual elites, and brutalised industrial slaves. Arriving in the year 802,701, the Time-Traveller finds that humanity has evolved into two drastically different species; going farther still, he witnesses the ultimate fate of the solar system. The Chronic Argonauts, the original version of The Time Machine, pits a scientist with daring views of time and space against superstitious villagers. In all three works Wells laces vivid adventure stories with the latest ideas in biology and physics.

    “In my dreams, I saw a city fall into the sea. I heard the cries of thousands. I saw flames that outshone the lamps of heaven. And all the world was shaken...”

    At the novel's centre: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has taken possession of his undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

    It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient times; a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent -- and of how and why this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.

    And as we learn of the mighty powers of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

    Who is the Killer on the Wall?

    Praise for The Killer on the Wall

    'The Killer on the Wall is several cuts above your usual psychological thriller. It’s beautifully written, emotionally involving and psychologically complex. You know you’re in the hands of a writer who really understands her subject matter. The story is skilfully told and so subtly nuanced, I gave up trying to guess where it was going and let myself be swept along with it, totally engrossed. And when the final twist came I said ‘oh my god’, and then almost immediately ‘of course’. Classy atmospheric and satisfying. Read it.' - Tammy Cohen

    It is the present-day, and the world is as we know it. Except for one thing: slavery still exists.

    Victor has escaped his life as a slave, but his freedom came at a high price. Striking a bargain with the government, he has to live his life working as a bounty hunter. And he is the best they’ve ever trained.

    A mystery to himself, Victor tries to suppress his memories of his own childhood and convinces himself that he is just a good man doing bad work, unwilling to give up the freedom he is desperate to preserve. But in tracking his latest target, he can sense that that something isn’t quite right.

    For this fugitive is a runaway holding something extraordinary. Something that could change the state of the country forever.

    And in his pursuit, Victor discovers secrets at the core of his country's arrangement with the system that imprisoned him, secrets that will be preserved at any cost.
    ‘It is a rare thing when a writer has a fresh new provocative idea – and then executes it beautifully. This is what Ben H. Winters has done in his novel Underground Airlines. Imagine an America in which slavery still exists. Now imagine a dramatic telling of the story.’ James Patterson

    2070-71. Nearly six decades after Step Day and in the Long Earth, the new Next post-human society continues to evolve.
    For Joshua Valienté, now in his late sixties, it is time to take one last solo journey into the High Meggers: an adventure that turns into a disaster. Alone and facing death, his only hope of salvation lies with a group of trolls. But as Joshua confronts his mortality, the Long Earth receives a signal from the stars. A signal that is picked up by radio astronomers but also in more abstract ways – by the trolls and by the Great Traversers. Its message is simple but ts implications are enormous:

    JOIN US.

    The super-smart Next realise that the Message contains instructions on how to develop an immense artificial intelligence but to build it they have to seek help from throughout the industrious worlds of mankind. Bit by bit, byte by byte, they assemble a computer the size of a continent – a device that will alter the Long Earth’s place within the cosmos and reveal the ultimate, life-affirming goal of those who sent the Message. Its impact will be felt by and resonate with all – mankind and other species, young and old, communities and individuals – who inhabit the Long Earths…

    The Long Cosmos serves as a fabulous, powerful and affecting drawing down of the curtain on this remarkable science fiction sequence.

    "Tony Parsons puts you right there in every scene he writes. I love that kind of storytelling and I'm a D.C. Max Wolfe fan." (James Patterson). A band of vigilante executioners roam London's hot summer nights, abducting evil men and hanging them by the neck until dead. As the bodies pile up and riots explode across the sweltering city, DC Max Wolfe hunts a gang of killers who many believe to be heroes. And discovers that the lust for revenge starts very close to home...Praise for The Hanging Club "This is Parson's best crime novel so far and underlines his exceptional talent." (Daily Mail)."I've long been a fan of Tony Parson's writing...This is brilliant stuff." (Peter James). "Spectacular! Tense and human, fast and authentic." (Lee Child). "Has all the ingredients and more: great plotting, great characters and at least two eye-widening twists I didn't see coming." (Sophie Hannah). "If you haven't already become a fan, the third outing for Max Wolfe is the perfect introduction to the London underworld that Tony Parsons has so vividly created...Wolfe's cases couldn't feel more of-the-minute." (GQ). "A gripping page-turning book that will demand your full attention." (Irish Examiner). "Fast paced and gripping." (Best Special Series). "Parsons had me gripped from the first chapter to the last sentence." (Irish independent). "A cleverly plotted page-turner, with touches of Cracker and Nordic Noir, all soaked in the atmosphere of London's murky back-streets." (CSMA Club Life magazine). Praise for Tony Parsons..."It's all as addictive as your favourite boxset...It contains more twists than a contortionist caught in a tornado." (The Shortlist). "Told with clarity and insight...Confirms Parsons has earned a place at the very pinnacle of British crime writing." (Daily Mail). "Tense...With a dose of dry wit." (The Daily Express). "A taut always engaging thriller." (The Sun). "I put my life on hold while I was reading because I couldn't tear myself away from the gripping story...It's complicated, brutal but Tony Parsons has managed to weave the brutality into a truly brilliant story." (Bestselling Crime Thrillers). "It's a brilliant crime novel, a thrilling procedural. Max Wolfe is a wonderfully endearing character, smart and tough and vulnerable, and with Scout (and Stan too) Tony has created so much warmth and tenderness, in a world, a genre, so often devoid of it. His research is wide, deep, impeccable - from forensics to the psychology, procedure to protocol. And boy does he know how to create suspense, and convincing plot lines, which snake and weave, and surprise right until the very end. This is a complex, shocking, very contemporary story, told with utter conviction and authority. I was hooked from page one. Crime writing has a brilliant new star." (Henry Sutton). "Sometimes, rarely, you know from the first chapter or so of a novel that you're in the hands of a master story teller. In the case of Tony Parsons...We know this within the first few pages. A relentless plot, evocative prose and compelling (and wrenching) portraits of the characters, good and evil, conspire to make this a must-read." (Jeffery Deaver). "Superbly crafted crime drama that grips from start to finish." (The Sunday Post). "Fast paced and gripping." (The Scotsman). "[Tony Parsons'] writing pedigree is first class. It shows in this terrific thriller, and Max Wolfe is a class act, a brilliant character that has to feature again...Absolutely stunning!" (Books Monthly).
