Paperbacks

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award–winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake.

The Order of the Forge by Victor Gischler

Before he fathered a nation, young George Washington forged his legend in blood! Imbued with the mystical powers of America's original inhabitants, George--along with his friends Ben Franklin and Paul Revere--must stop an evil governor who wishes to rule an empire!

War of the Worlds: The Anglo-Martian War of 1895 by Mike Brunton

On one terrible night in August 1895, the world changed for ever. Southern England became the landing site of a group of mysterious grey cylinders that came hurtling down from the stars. Nobody could have guessed that these strange objects would herald the most desperate and important conflict in the history of mankind. The war pitted man against machines from space and no quarter was asked for or given on either side. The outcome would be decided by the smallest of things...

This is the essential guide to the Anglo-Martian conflict of 1895, offering unique comparison of the two belligerents, English and alien. It looks at the forces available to each and evaluates their respective tactics and strategies. Finally, it tells the full story of those fateful fifteen days, punctuated by the best and worst possible human experiences. It is a story of hope and despair, courage and terror, victory and defeat.

E-Books

Char by Dale Cozort

It was a routine murder investigation, except that the main suspect was a cave woman from an alternate reality.

Char of the Real People is the ultimate smart outsider, trying to figure out modern society while running from a relentless county sheriff's murder investigation. How much can a cave woman understand about us by the sheer power of her mind? How long can she escape the law enforcement net closing around her?
