The Spectre Cycle by Alan Burt Akers, the final The Saga of Dray Prescot omnibus is now available from good ebook stores everywhere, including Amazon (for Kindle), iBooks, Smashwords, Google Play Books, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble (for Nook Books).

The blurb:

The Dray Prescot Saga, omnibus edition, containing books 50 to 52 in the epic series.

Dray Prescot has been chosen by the Star Lords to be the so-called Emperor of All Paz. Together, the countries of Paz must resist the deadly Shanks who raid from over the curve of the world. Delia and Dray Prescot have abdicated the throne of Vallia and now seek to make the dream of a united Paz come true.

Shadows over Kregen
Whether Prescot is battling slavers and freeing slaves with the Kroveres of Iztar, or fighting Fish-heads in the land of the Shanks, he is certain to be thrown into more headlong adventures under the streaming mingled lights of the Suns of Scorpio.

Murder on Kregen
A new page turns in the unruly life of Dray Prescot, and all his strengths and inner resources will be required to confront fresh problems and perils. Join Dray Prescot as he rides south from the port city of Zandikar on the inner sea of the continent of Turismond, the Eye of the World, with his blade comrade Seg Segutorio and the Princesses Velia and Didi of Vallia. Of course, as is the nature of Kregen, they face unexpected peril…

Turmoil on Kregen
The undead monster called the Spectre has been destroyed. Didi herself lies seriously injured in Zandikar in the Eye of the World, lovingly tended by her cousin, Princess Velia. Ulana Farlan, the governor of Didi’s province of Urn Vennar, has been removed from office. Now the rogue and schemer Nath Swantram, Nath the Clis, rules. But the Spectre, dead and animate, is about to terrorize Gafarden again as Tralgan Vorner, the wronged Elten of Culvensax, seeks vengeance on those who betrayed him. Within Vorner the Spectre lives.

Including a glossary to the Spectre cycle.

The Balintol Cycle II by Alan Burt Akers cover

The Balintol Cycle II by Alan Burt Akers, book 14 of The Saga of Dray Prescot omnibus is now available from good ebook stores everywhere, including Amazon (for Kindle), iBooks, Smashwords, Google Play Books, Kobo and Barnes & Noble (for Nook Books).

The blurb:

The Dray Prescot Saga, omnibus edition, containing books 47 to 49 in the epic series.

If you are prepared to hurl yourself into adventure, to face peril with a brave heart, to risk all, then the marvelous world of Kregen offers you everything you have ever dreamed. For Dray Prescot the challenges are enormous. His task is to unite the sub-continent of Balintol against the Shanks, but the megalomaniac striving for power of various factions looks set to send Balintol up in flames.

Scourge of Antares
Prescot has uncovered some of the details of a plot by the cultists of the religion of Dokerty to turn ordinary men and women into receptacles for demons, who then destroy wantonly until the frail human body can no longer support the intolerable demonic forces. Now he has escaped from the Dokerty temple with a mysterious young woman, Veda. They are fleeing for their lives as the Suns of Scorpio descend into night…

Challenge of Antares
Born in 1775, Dray Prescot joined the Royal Navy as a boy when his father died from the sting of a scorpion, and his mother followed soon after. Life in Nelson’s Navy, harsh, intolerant, formed and molded him. He has been consistently passed over for promotion, even though he has fought his way from the lower deck through the hawsehole to the quarterdeck. He considers himself a failure. Just recently he has been experiencing unsettling dreams…

Wrath of Antares
The rulers of the countries of Balintol, and the people trying to usurp them, appear to care only for their own ambitions. Having saved the Illusionist of Winlan and preserved the Wall that retains the demon monsters created by Khon the Mak’s Dokerty priests, Prescot now realizes to his profound horror that the phantom of his wife Delia he saw buried by falling rock was no apparition…

Includes a glossary of the entire Balintol cycle.

Balintol Cycle I by Alan Burt Akers cover image

The Balintol Cycle I by Alan Burt Akers, the thirteenth Saga of Dray Prescot omnibus, is now available from good ebook stores everywhere, including Amazon (for Kindle), iBooks, Smashwords, Google Play Books, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble (for Nook Books).

The blurb:

The Dray Prescot Saga, omnibus edition, containing books 44 to 46 in the epic series.

Dray Prescot begins an entirely new phase of his adventures on Kregen, that magnificent and terrible world four hundred light years from Earth. Reared in the harsh conditions of Nelson’s Navy, Dray Prescot failed to find success on Earth but has succeeded in winning fortune on Kregen. He is called the Emperor of Emperors, the Emperor of Paz, but he himself regards these titles as meaningless. Paz is a vast grouping of continents and islands and is inhabited by innumerable races and nations, so why should they band together under Prescot? The Star Lords themselves have chosen him for this heavy task.

Intrigue of Antares
In this, the first book of the Balintol cycle, the Star Lords have dispatched Dray Prescot to the town of Amintin in the continent of Balintol. Under the streaming mingled lights of the Suns of Scorpio, Dray Prescot sets forth on new adventures in the subcontinent of Balintol.

Gangs of Antares
All hell was due to break out in the country of Tolindrin, and the city of Oxonium, as the capital, was likely to receive more than its fair share. Dray Prescot is in the middle of it, and strangeness unlike any that he has previously encountered awaits him…

Demons of Antares
Dray Prescot’s task of uniting the disparate countries so that all Paz can defend itself against the predatory, fish-headed Shanks from the other side of the world is complicated. And the megalomaniac desires of certain princes and nobles who are determined to win the crown of Tolindrin for themselves, and who are willing to destroy anyone who gets in their way, isn’t helping. They have hired mercenary armies and allied themselves with the traditional enemies of the country. Prescot must travel to Prebaya, the capital of Caneldrin, and use all his strengths and all his scheming and tricks to achieve his goal with as little bloodshed as possible…

The Egyptian Sequence by Moyra Caldecott, is now available exclusively on Kindle.

The blurb:

Moyra Caldecott’s four Egyptian novels brought together in one volume for the first time.

Hatshepsut: Daughter of Amun
The dramatic and passionate story of Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt during the Eighteenth dynasty. Ambitious, ruthless and worldly, Hatshepsut established Amun as the chief god of Egypt, bestowing his Priesthood with unprecedented riches and power. This is a story of vision and obsession, of mighty projects and heartbreaking failures — the story of a woman possessed by the desire for power and the need to love.

Akhenaten: Son of the Sun
In ancient Egypt during the magnificent eighteenth dynasty the Pharaoh Akhenaten and his queen, the strong and beautiful Nefertiti, are engaged in a dramatic battle against the wealthy, corrupt and dangerously powerful priests of Amun. Haunting and full of surprises, Akhenaten: Son of the Sun gives a fascinating glimpse into an ancient civilisation. It is a story about hate and love, despair and hope, but more than that it is the story of extraordinary spiritual and psychic powers being tested to their limits.

Tutankhamun and the Daughter of Ra
Ankhesenamun has never been safe in all her short life -– not even with her beloved husband and half brother Tutankhamun. Daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten and the fabled Nefertiti, and married at one time to her father, she is forced to marry Tutankhamun by the powerful General Horemheb at a time of bitter political and religious division. Ankhesenamun is the delicate link between scheming factions. Left vulnerable by the failure of her plans for the sacred egg of Ra and the death of her young husband, Ankhesenamun is forced into making one last extraordinary and desperate bid for life and happiness…

The Ghost of Akhenaten
Who dares challenge the might of the Priests of Amun? A group of people are drawn inexorably together, and impelled by forces unknown to travel to Egypt to investigate what happened to the pharaoh Akhenaten who lived more than three thousand years before. Their adventures are not what any of them expect, and have far-reaching consequences in their lives.

The Falcon File cover

The Falcon File by Daniel Wyatt, is now available from good ebook stores everywhere, including Amazon (for Kindle), iBooks, Smashwords, Google Play Books, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble (for Nook Books). This is an omnibus edition containing the previously published books The Fuehrermaster, The Filberg Consortium and Foo Fighters.

The blurb:

The intelligence war in Europe during the Second World War opens the eyes of young American intelligence officer Wesley Hollinger. He does not like what he sees.

The intelligence war in Europe during WWII opens the eyes of young American intelligence officer Wesley Hollinger. He does not like what he sees…

The Fuehrermaster
Spring, 1941. Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill is on the verge of being overthrown by an English lobby group of Nazi appeasers who plan to sign a secret pact with Nazi Fuehrer Adolf Hitler to end the war in Europe. Hitler gets wind of the overthrow. He feels that the British group are ready to cut a deal on his terms, and that only one man–his deputy Rudolf Hess–could pull it off for the Fatherland. Through secret channels, Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler–who has his own ambitions to be Fuehrer–finds out what Hess and Hitler are attempting.
Across the channel, Churchill’s group is ready. Young hot-shot American intelligence agent, Wesley Hollinger, on loan to the British Secret Service, uncovers Heinrich Himmler’s plan to eliminate Hess and plant an imposter…

The Filberg Consortium
It is late 1941. America has yet to enter the war. A German agent secretly lands in Great Britain with orders from Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler and financed by I.S. Filberg, the huge German industrial cartel, to identify and kill the prisoner called Rudolf Hess.
Meanwhile, in London, American agent Wesley Hollinger discovers a crucial missing section to the first Hess peace papers found near the crash site in Scotland. The paperwork itemizes sensitive Wall Street loans to Nazi war factories — deals arranged by I.S. Filberg.
Hollinger doesn’t know who to turn to — his adopted England or his home country. And thousands of miles away in the Pacific a heavily-armed Japanese Task Force is heading towards Pearl Harbor…

Foo Fighters
It is early 1945 and Germany is losing the war. The Russians, the Americans, and the British are closing in on Berlin and Hitler’s bunker.
In this startling end-of-the-war tale two high-ranking Nazi officials, Martin Bormann and Hermann Goering, are collaborating with Wesley Hollinger and the American OSS for free passage out of Germany in exchange for blueprints to advanced German technology — jet fighters, rockets, missiles and early flying saucers, nicknamed “Foo Fighters”. The Americans are desperate to keep the Foo Fighter blueprints from reaching Russian and British hands.
Wesley Hollinger of the OSS soon realizes what World War Two is really all about — power, money, and politics.
