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.

The Balintol Cycle II cover image

The Balintol Cycle II by Alan Burt Akers, the fourteenth Dray Prescot omnibus, containing books 47 to 49 in the epic series, is now available in hard cover from good book stores everywhere, including Amazon (this link opens at the most geographically appropriate Amazon store) and Barnes & Noble.

The blurb:

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.

The Balintol Cycle I by Alan Burt Akers, the thirteenth book of The Saga of Dray Prescot omnibus is now available from Bladud Books in hardback edition from good bookstores everywhere, including Amazon.

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…

Guardians of the Tall Stones by Moyra Caldecott, is now available exclusively for the Kindle from Amazon. You can also read it for free with Kindle Unlimited and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

The blurb:

An ancient community is threatened by the evil designs of a corrupt and ambitious priest, and its only defence is the courageous young psychic Kyra.

The Guardians of the Tall Stones is set in Bronze Age Britain, a time when magic existed in the workings of everyday life and the threat of evil loomed in the shadows. This book contains four novels.

The Tall Stones
Kyra’s village is threatened by the evil designs of Wardyke, a corrupt and ambitious priest, and she is its only defence. But to defend her community, Kyra must enter the forbidden circle of stones and call upon its unseen, mystical powers…

The Temple of the Sun
Kyra, the courageous young psychic we met in The Tall Stones, undertakes the hazardous journey with Karne and Fern to the Sacred Temple, where Kyra is to receive her training as a priestess and renew her love for the Lord Khu-ren. But a malevolent spirit still opposes them, and its influence has already permeated the sanctity of the Temple. Kyra is forced once again to face the evil Magician-Priest, Wardyke, whose thirst for revenge and power threatens the balance between good and evil…

Shadow on the Stones
Kyra, priest of the Temple of the Sun, and her husband the Lord Khu-ren, have guided their civilisation to a time of spiritual strength, psychic energy, and communal peace. But there is a shadow on the Stones — the spreading influence of the terrible god Groth, dark god of chaos and barbarity. Only the priests of the Temple possess the power to resist the tides of destruction…

The Silver Vortex
Deva is the beautiful and headstrong daughter of the High Priest of the greatest of the mighty stone circles. She seeks to master the arts of sorcery in order to reclaim her lover from a previous incarnation. Now, trapped by a desire she cannot control, she risks more than herself, and puts the whole community in danger…
