Lair of the Giants

Glasby, John 2018

Norbert Naysmith was born on Mars and had lived on the planet his whole life.He sometimes wondered about Earth and what life would be like had he been there, but he also knew it was doubtful that he would ever visit the home planet. Those of his colleagues who had done so soon returned, unable to accustom themselves to the planet’s oppressively high gravity and denser atmosphere.

Twenty-six years old, Norbert considered himself a true native of the planet. Physically, he was tall and slightly-built like all of those who were Mars-born, but his outstanding characteristic – one inherited from his father – was his ability to rapidly manipulate masses of data with his mind.

Mars was home to thirteen settlements that kept constant video communication via six orbiting satellites. One of the settlements, Syrtis Base, had expanded enormously over the years, and now, in the Martian spring of 2061, covered more than two hundred square kilometres.

It is here Norbert is called into his superior’s office and tasked with a new mission…He is to build robots capable of surviving the enormous pressure and extreme temperatures of Saturn.But, why?If they are to properly harness the power within Cantor’s twentieth century mathematics, this is their only choice…Praise for John Glasby‘One of the world’s most prolific pulp fiction writers’ – The Telegraph'A thrilling read.

The Pluto Enigma

Glasby, John 2019

When the first manned space mission from Earth reached Pluto, they encountered an enigma. Here, on the very rim of the solar system they were face to face with a mystery they might never solve.A solitary, flat-topped mountain rose sheer from an otherwise unmarred plain.

There was something disturbing about the formation, something unnatural. Some alien intelligence had built this great monument, and here it stood, an ageless relic of their past existence.Yet for what purpose?Without any doubt, the long-forgotten builders had intended it to stand for an eternity.

Whether the mountain itself—was it really a mountain?—had also been erected by this race, was problematic. But there had to be some reason for it all.Perhaps it had been built for science, as some form of observatory. Or in the name of religion: a foreign temple to a forgotten God.

Or, perhaps, like the pyramids of ancient Egypt, it served as a place of burial. But whether primitive or advanced, it was impossible to tell.And perhaps it was none of these things, and only presumptuous to extrapolate the creations of alien creatures to human terms.

Cosmic Echelon

Glasby, John 1952

The vast federation of outworld states that formed the Terran Empire smarted under the unjust, evil influence of the Emperor Jrun. Daily, his tax-gatherers swooped down on the member planets, wringing the people dry of money and goods. But away from the decadent shell that Jrun had built up, out among the lonely suns of the Edge, a new power was growing.

It had fallen on Kelda, the young star-king of Zandyr to form the union known as the Cosmic Echelon. A fleet of ships that dared to match the armed might of Imperial Terra.The ultimate weapon belonged to Jrun, a battleship which no power could withstand, and a force that could shatter the bodies of men.

Here, you can follow Kelda and his warrior princess, Irrena, through the star-strewn wastes of Space; across the Dark Gap in which the empty wrecks of once proud vessels floated forever, manned by crews long-dead.And realise as Jrun did, that there are two kinds of laws.

Those made by Man himself, which can be broken - and the laws of the Universe, which are inviolate.

Zenith-D

Glasby, John 1952

To the crew of the Exploratory Ship Canopus, outward bound on the first intergalactic voyage to the flaring suns of mighty Andromeda, the evil whisperings that spilled out from the nebula into deep space came as a warning. This was something far beyond their previous experience.

Nor were they the only ones to come under the malignant influence of the alien intelligence. In the empty, murmuring void, virtually half-way between the two galaxies of stars, a solitary sun streaked away from Andromeda, dragging its lonely, ammonia-laden planet with it.

And it was here that the explorers first gained their glimpse of the black horror that lay straddled across the intergalactic darkness. Something that had being. Something that existed where it seemed impossible that anything could.It fell on Klau-Telph, the only non-Terran on board the Canopus, to finally track down and destroy the inhuman monster that threatened to drive the inhabitants of a trillion planets over the red edge of madness.

Not until it was done did he find that the hidden reason behind the insidious whisperings was not what it seemed. In fact, it was something that even he, with his strange double mind, had never thought possible...

Zero Point

Glasby, John 1952

Over the long years, ships of the Interplanetary Confederation had scoured the empty wastes surrounding Sol, searching desperately for a sister planet; a companion for the isolated worlds of the Solar System. Of the ships that were sent out, many returned.

But always the answer was the same.There were no planets! The worlds of Sol were alone in the Great Dark that swirled across the boundless heavens. It was not until Steve Rane and Nick Brodine, in the Exploratory Ship Vega, reached across the yawning gulf of light years to Sirius, that they found the strange planet that rotated in its complicated orbit around the twin sun.

It was an event transcending all others. A discovery that plunged the planets of Sol into the greatest race of all time. For whoever controlled the alien planet, controlled the Solar System. And away from the watchful eye of the IPC it would be possible to build the greatest space armada in history and attack the Interplanetary Confederation without warning.

To Steve Rane, the order came from Earth Central. Zero Point has been set for three months hence. The ship of Jupiter must not reach the new planet first.

Trail Blazers / Bowie of the Alamo

Glasby, John 1956

Louisiana and Texas are seething with power-hungry, hard-hitting men who will stop at nothing to get what they want… James Bowie, an adventurer and pioneer, decides to try and make it out West, across the frontier and into the Mexican territory of Tejas.

He joins a group of settlers who are following the trail out with their wagons. But the vast expanses of the desert are largely unchartered territory – immeasurably big, wild and untamable.And with outlaws, bandits and Indians along the trail, there is no telling if they will reach their destination alive.

It is, he believes, a man’s duty to push the frontier westward, and to reach the promised land. There are increasing numbers of Americans moving into Tejas county and trying to claim it for America, believing that they can make it into an American state.

But Mexico will not let go without a fight. The Mexican government resolves to do everything it can to prevent Anglo-American colonisation of the state, declaring martial law in Tejas and attempting to disarm the colonists. Bloody battles break out, and Bowie finds himself caught up in the chaos.

In the midst of the mayhem he questions the purpose: is there any sense in men dying and killing each other in this way? Will all their fighting be in vain? And will they sacrifice everything they have in this vicious war for control? Bowie of the Alamo is a blazing novel of the west about the men who took part in the final shaping of the country.

This Second Earth

Glasby, John 1957

The world that Man has known for close on twenty thousand years had been overthrown in a holocaust of atomic fire and annihilation. The immense and complex system of civilisation had been utterly destroyed almost overnight and only a scant handful of true humans remained.

Stretched out between the rivers of radioactive fire, the cities were growing wildernesses of shattered stone and brick, splintered glass and silent streets. But here and there in quiet places sheltered from the deadly rains, men waited for the fires to subside and hoped to rebuilt something a little like the civilisation which had existed before.

This is the stirring and sometimes terrible story of the supreme struggle for survival, when the continued existence of the human race on Earth is uncertain after such a tremendous catastrophe, and when all life is menaced by the wandering bands of mutants, creatures spawned and tainted by the deadly radiation.

Taken prisoner by them, he and a handful of others found themselves transported in Time to the world of a million years hence.

The logical outcome of the space race, and the preliminary step towards the Moo, was the manned satellite, the Big Wheel moving in a stable orbit about the Earth, integrating the data necessary for a landing on the Moon, and eventually acting as a fuelling station for the Lunar rockets.

After several failures, the station is ready, but even there, danger exists, unseen, unheard, invisible and terrible. Forced to exist in the belt of cosmic radiation surrounding the planet, men die within weeks from aplastic anemia. Seeking a solution to the problem, Doctor Paul Russell is sent up to the satellite and here learns of the two men fro the previous crew who vanished without a trace after spotting an unidentified spaceship in orbit further out from Earth than themselves.

Black Abyss

Glasby, John 1960

With the discovery of the hyperdrive, mankind at last possessed the means of going out to the stars. Four expeditions had already gone by the fine the fifth starship left Pluto for Vega. Carrying its complement of scientists and military personnel, they arrived at the solar system of Vega to find one planet sufficiently like Earth to allow them to land.

Here, they discovered mystery. The ruins of great cities built on the shattered remains of still earlier fortresses, showing that some great race of conquerors had passed that way sometime in the past thirty thousand years. No life now remained on this planet and speeding to the next sun, they found a civilisation which possessed powers so utterly strange to them that one native almost succeeded in destroying them and taking over the ship.

And still the mystery remained, for the legends of the planet spoke of a race of gods who had come down from the stars twenty thousand years before. It was not until they reached the planet of a red giant sun that they ran into a race of creatures so fantastically alien that there was no defence against them, and they learned the real identity of the race which had conquered the stars millennia before.

Hydrosphere

Glasby, John 1960

The Colony on Rigel IV had been founded seven hundred years earlier but for the past six centuries, they had been forced to exist on the bottoms of the great oceans of the planet, kept there by the tremendously potent weapons of the alien star-race which had swept down out of space and wiped them off the land masses of the new world.

Kerrel Stevens found himself trapped in one of the Shells, unable to remember how he came to be there, aware only that for some strange reason, he held the secret which could release these people from their terrible existence, but that his memory and all of the knowledge which could help in the struggle against the aliens had been erased from his mind.

In the Shells, he finds what he is seeking - others like himself, different from the people who had become used to this life on the sea bottom, where science had gradually given way to superstition and witchcraft - and this chance meeting provides the key which unlocked the amnesia in his mind.

For him, it opened the doorway to the surface of this strange, impossible planet, plunging him breathlessly towards the stars- and the unbelievable secret which spelt destruction for the alien star-race.

When The Gods Came

Glasby, John 1961

Men had fought wars throughout history, but never such a war as the one which destroyed the cities of earth and turned vast areas into badlands, stretches of intense radioactivity where nothing could grow and no one could live. It also produced the deviates, mutants who had warped bodies and strange talents.

But there were others who had still stranger talents, mental powers exceeding those of the mutants, and whose bodies did not bear the sign of the deviate. Their origin could not be traced to an atomic war; even they themselves had no idea whence they came.

Forced to take part in the abortive war between the Eastern and Western Federations, one man and one man eventually escaped and discovered creatures similar to themselves. But to discover their origin they had to go back five thousand years; and the answer lay not on earth, but somewhere in the stars.

Men will kill for less than a handful of gold, and no one lives long by taking chances. Whilst riding along a lonely and desolate trail, drifter Lanner encounters a dying man with a priceless secret – a map containing the location of the fabled El Dorado silver mine.

The dying man bequeaths the map to Lanner, but possessing this knowledge puts Lanner in grave danger. Upon riding into a nearby town, Lanner is immediately treated with suspicion and contempt. It’s not long before several attempts are made upon his life, all with the aim of seizing possession of the priceless map.

Can Lanner escape this band of outlaws and find the legendary mine? Or will he be outnumbered? El Dorado Trail is a breathtaking adventure of the Wild West’s fabled history – the perfect choice for fans of Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.

The Horror from the Deep: A Tale of the Cthulhu Mythos

Glasby, John 2020

On October 2. 1936. the SS Orient Princess, a vessel of some 8,000 tons, put into Valparaiso carrying a cargo of timber and crude rubber from the Dutch East Indies. Immediately upon arrival, her captain, one Willem van Groot, was met by two members of the local police and Professor Thomas Wilmerson of Miskatonic University, the latter having flown to Chile in response to an urgent radio message sent by van Groot four days before the Orient Princess reached port.

Captain van Groot took with him from the ship, the log and a large notebook carefully wrapped in waterproof oilskin which he kept in his possession until the four men were seated around the table in Wilmerson’s hotel room and the door was securely locked.

Only then did the captain place the two items on the table. Before speaking, he opened the ship’s log and riffled through the pages until he found the one he wanted.Glancing up, he looked at each man in turn, then said quietly, “Gentlemen, I can understand your curiosity concerning the radio message I dispatched but I can assure you that this matter is of the utmost importance and secrecy.

I asked that you, Professor Wilmerson, should be here when we docked since this package”— he indicated the oilskin-wrapped book with his right hand—“is addressed to you personally and although I’ve only glanced through the contents, I shudder to think of what may have happened to the writer.

”So begins this Cthulhu Mythos novella, a brand new tale from a British master of dark fantasy!

There were eldritch shadows in the house. On the floor of the library at the rear of the house, the strange cabalistic designs glowed with an eerie, devilish light. There was a flickering inside the room as of corpse candles, a cold radiance, a manifestation of the aura of evil that had never left the place, which was crystallised inside its very walls.

This was a house of evil, filled with THE LONELY SHADOWS of the dead! Also included in this collection are "The Seventh Image," "Shirley's Ghost," and the two Cthulhu Mythos stories, "Undersea Quest" and "Innsmouth Bane." First-rate horror by a master of the genre!
