12140 Cradle Of The Sun/Wizards Of Senchuria GOOD
Cradle Of The Sun
By Brian M. Stableford
Cover by Jack Gaughan
Call it soul, call it humanity, species-sentience, anything --- it was missing! Not only was it gone from Mankind, but from man's ancient enemies, the rats, as well. There was no will to power, no will to live. Both intelligent species were dying.
The task of saving the world fell to Kavan Lochlain, the last living coward. The only man who cared enough to feel fear, Kavan was afraid of everything; but this fear was going to take him to the Cradle of the Sun, because he was too scared to let anything stop him.
The Wizards Of Senchuria
By Kenneth Bulmer
Cover by Kelly Freas
Scobie Redfern was just a nice good-looking American young man who had never heard of such things as Portals, parallel worlds, or Trugs. So when someone materialized in his apartment with Trugs in hot pursuit, it all seemed sort of a funny game. When the monsters themselves arrived, the humor disappeared.
It wasn't long before Scobie was himself running for his life from world to world and from Portal to Portal just to keep one jump ahead of the Trugs, and hoping that the "wizards" of an obscure dimension named Senchuria might be able to get him back home alive and whole.
Best thing about this series is the Villainess, the Contessa Perdita de Montevarchi. Bulmer, when he was writing these books, could not have imagined the existence of a Hillary Clinton, but he has recreated her precisely in the character of the Contessa! This creature lives the life that Our Slimy Secretary of State only imagines for herself - so far!
Some dirt is visible on the mostly-white Stableford cover. Edge and corner wear on both. Spine is rubbed along edges, heavily creased at one corner. Pages are browning. Binding is tight and square.
