The City of the Beast or Warriors of Mars

It was supposed to be a matter transmitter, but something went hideously wrong with its first experimental use. Instead of sending him to a room across the laboratory, it flung Michael Kane helplessly through time and space —to the red planet where savagery ruled!

Deadly menace faced the citizens of Varnal as the ravaging hordes of the Argzoon—the dreaded Blue Giants—swept ruthlessly across the hills and plains. Kane became their sole defender because of his all-conquering love for Shizala, beautiful Queen of the Kanala. And he was determined to win her love in return— in spite of the space-time barriers between them— even though to do so he had to face death many times from a remorseless and incredibly powerful foe!

Jake's father disappears while working on mysterious experiments with the obsessive, reclusive Oberon Venn. Jake is convinced Venn has murdered him. But the truth he finds at the snow-bound Wintercombe Abbey is far stranger ... The experiments concerned a black mirror, which is a portal to both the past and the future. Venn is not alone in wanting to use its powers. Strangers begin gathering in and around Venn's estate: Sarah - a runaway, who appears out of nowhere and is clearly not what she says, Maskelyne - who claims the mirror was stolen from him in some past century. There are others, a product of the mirror's power to twist time. And a tribe of elemental beings surround this isolated estate, fey, cold, untrustworthy, and filled with hate for humans.
