Excalibur (The Warlord Chronicles, Volume 3)
Bernard Cornwell
St. Martin's Press (hardcover, 436 pages, $24.95 US)
Publication date: May 18, 1998

The third novel and final novel in The Warlord Chronicles, sequel to The Winter King and Enemy of God, returns us to Dark Age Britain. The great druid Merlin, convinced that the ancient gods are fleeing Britain in the face of Christianity, fears now that the invading Saxons can't be defeated without the gods' help. The cruel Mordred reigns with a brutal hand, and Arthur risks seeing his dreams of peace die at last. According to reviewer Neil Walsh, "Excalibur offers a satisfying conclusion to the tragic story... an exceedingly well-written account of the last chapters of the Arthurian legend. The description of the petty in-fighting among the Britons after the battle of Mount Badon, for example, is brilliantly done, as it is comical and tragic at the same time... Cornwell has a knack for creating realistic and sympathetic heroes, as well as cruel villains to make the reader tremble with rage."

Oddly Enough
Bruce Coville
Harcourt Brace (hardcover, 122 pages, $16/$24 Can)
Publication date: December, 1994

Bruce Coville's novels for young adults -- especially his more recent work, such as The Skull of Truth -- have gained him an appreciative older audience. His first two collections, Oddly Enough and Odder Than Ever (below), are gorgeously packaged and promising in every respect. The nine stories in this volume spans the spectrum from ghoulish to hilarious -- from the problems of an untidy girl and a brownie who won't stop cleaning her room, to the tragedy of the Speaker, who must drink the blood of his only love to save his community. "A short fiction collection by the author of Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher ranges from the characteristic hilarity of "Dusty's Jacket" to the solemn war message of "With His Head Tucked Underneath His Arm."
[Cover] The Skull of Truth

Only now, no one will believe him.

Thirty years ago Gene Roddenberry used his Star Trek series to air the pilot of a new TV show.

[Cover] Einstein's Bridge
John Cramer
Avon/EOS paperback
One of the first novels to be treated to a feature review at the SF Site, and one of the most memorable hard SF novels seen last year. In 2004, two physicists and a writer are drawn to the site of the Superconducting Super Collider in Texas -- where scientists have discovered tunnels through space-time. The cherished dream of alien contact may have been achieved... until the strange new communications are traced to a hostile alien life form known simply as "The Hive." And now that ancient and life-annihilating entity has locked into the signal emanating from the uncommonly fertile feeding ground called Earth. "Cramer weaves a compelling tale and even manages to deal with the paradox of the two physicists meeting their younger selves... Einstein's Bridge is definitely worth the read." -- Wayne MacLaurin. Note the special introductory price.

Ballantine
Think if you've seen the movie you can skip the book? Think again. Maybe someday someone will film Crichton's Jurassic Park sequel, but Spielberg certainly didn't. An entertaining book that will probably contain more surprises for those who've seen the movie than for those who haven't.

The White Guardian (The Eternal Guardians, Book 3)
Ronald Anthony Cross
Tor (reprint, trade paperback, 426 pages, $15.95/$21.95 Can)
Publication date: May 5, 1999 (First Edition: June 1998)

If you like your fantasy fast, funny, and complex, The Eternal Guardians saga may be exactly what's been missing from your life. "In the time of legends, Hephaestus, smith of the gods, wrought a stone of astonishing power and gave it to the Greeks. Theseus broke the eternal stone in four and gave each piece to a Guardian. History has never been the same. It was the Guardians who made Atlantis sink; they spread the bubonic plague; and a Guardian was the Ubermensch behind the Third Reich. Of the first Guardians, only Roman gladiator Corbo has survived to maintain the balance of history. Now, as Corbo juggles the scales of power in several eras at once, new young Guardians try to master the stones. Corbo has uncovered a Nazi threat -- centuries ago! But he's tired of saving the world, and two wannabe Guardians are stuck in a medieval England where witches rule and the local inn has modern plumbing. While Cobra is busy freeing King Henry from medieval Nazis, the wannabes are doing the only smart thing: inventing the blues to foment revolution."

Volume two of The Eternal Guardians and sequel to The Fourth Guardian, it's recommended for fans of the Illuminatus Trilogy.
[Cover] The Fourth Guardian
Ronald Anthony Cross
Tor paperback
Volume one of The Eternal Guardians, it looks like a must for fans of the Illuminatus Trilogy. In fact, Robert Anton Williams says: "The walls of space and time dissolve as we roller coaster between pagan Los Angeles and haunted, mystic Rome in a nightmare where only the blood is real". Of course, I thought it was goofy.
