Hadon of Ancient Opar

Opar...the Atlantean colony in the heart of Tarzan's Africa.

Opar...in the words of Edgar Rice Burroughs, a hidden city of "gold and silver, ivory and apes, and peacocks."

Opar...is the starting point of this fabulous novel of twelve thousand years past, when Africa had in inland sea and a high civilization bloomed along its forgotten shores, when lost empires flew their time-vanished banners, and deeds of daring were commonplace.

Gods of Riverworld: The Fifth Book of the Riverworld Series

Thirty billion people from throughout Earth's history have been resurrected along the great and winding waterways of Riverworld. Most began life anew--accepting without question the sustenance provided by their mysterious benefactors. But a rebellious handful, including Mark Twain, Richard Burton, and Peter Jairus Frigate, burned to confront the unseen masters who controlled their fate--and these few launched an invasion that will ultimately yield the mind-boggling truth. The story was chronicled in four previous volumes, and is now concluded in Gods of Riverworld.

Riverworld's omnipotent leaders must finally be confronted, and the renegades of Riverworld--led by the intrepid Sir Richard Francis Burton--will control the fantastic mechanism that rules them. But the most awesome challenge lies ahead. For in the vast corridors and secret rooms of the tower stronghold, an unknown enemy watches and waits to usurp the usurpers....

The Maker of Universes

When Robert Wolff found a strange horn in an empty house, he held the key to a different universe. To blow that horn would open up a door through space-time and permit entry to a cosmos whose dimensions and laws were not those our starry galxy knows.
For that other universe was a place of tiers, world upon world piled upon each other like the landings of a sky-piercing mountain. The one to blow that horn would ascend those steps, from creation to creation, until he would come face to face with the being whose brain-child it was.
But what if that maker of universes was a madman? Or an imposter? Or a super-criminal hiding from the wrath of his own superiors?
THE MAKER OF UNIVERSES is unlike any science-fiction novel you have ever read, it is wonderfully unique.
