Summary

There have been a thousand tales of future Utopias and possible civilizations. They have been ruled by benevolent dictatorships and pure democracies, every form of government from extreme right to absolute left. Unique among these is the easy-going semi-anarchistic society ruled by THE SYNDIC.

    “For the modeller and wargamer . . . looking for something more when recreating their battles in a table-top game or exhibiting their work.” —José Manuél Rico Cortés (“Mister JM”), Miniaturas JM   Like a good general, a good wargamer should have an eye for the ground. Just as the nature of the battlefield plays a central role in real warfare, so miniature wargames are greatly enhanced by realistic terrain. Besides, when you’ve spent hundreds of hours collecting and painting your miniature armies, they surely deserve ground worth fighting for.   Master terrain modeler Paul Davies takes the reader through the process of creating a visually appealing yet practical terrain system. First the techniques of making the basic landscape are explained, then a series of projects show how this can be adapted to suit different periods or geographic locations, from European farmland to Sudanese desert. There are then detailed chapters on adding vegetation, buildings, roadways, trench systems, and more. The clear, step-by-step instructions are clearly illustrated by numerous specially-taken photographs of the work in progress and Paul’s inspirational finished pieces.   “Takes the reader through the process of creating a visually appealing yet practical terrain over which miniature battles may be fought . . . The book should be well received by wargamers and diorama builders alike. Recommended.” —Military Modelling   “Inspiring . . . It’s the detailed ‘build projects’ and the huge number of images that really serve to make this book such a valuable resource for those who don’t quite know where to start, or those who would like some inspiration and guidance to serve as a catalyst for their own research and modelling projects.” —Tabletop Gaming

    Life begins when your boss is killed. For five years, Cason Cole has been a chew toy for a god.

Now, as the man he loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free.  
    For centuries, the swarming gods of the Earth were content to lounge in Heaven, forgetting the mortals they left behind; but thirty years ago, the all-powerful "Usurper" ejected them all, to a man and woman. Now it's back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who defy them. None of which is going to stop Cason from getting back what's his...

    Space Prison is a sci-fi novel by Tom Godwin. A ship heading from Earth to Athena, a planet 500 light years away, is suddenly attacked by the Gerns, an alien empire in its expansion phase. People aboard are divided by the invaders into Acceptables and Rejects. The Acceptables would become slave labor for the Gerns on Athena, and the Rejects are forced ashore on the nearest 'Earth-like' planet, called Ragnarok. The Gerns say they will return for the Rejects, but the Rejects quickly realize that that isn't going to happen. Ragnarok is not so 'Earth-like.' Its gravity is 1.5 times that of Earth, it is populated by deadly, aggressive creatures and it contains little in the way of usable metal ores. This, combined with a terrible deadly fever that kills in hours, more than decimates the population. The novels follows the stranded humans through several generations as they try to survive there, and their unswerving goal to repay the Gerns for their cruelty..
