Shaun Hutson

Some people are born to be murder victims. Fact, not fiction. Frank Miller, special effects man for countless horror films, knew that. Blinded in a bizarre accident but then given the transplanted eyes of a murderer, Miller finds he can spot potential victims. However, in their search for a maniacal killer, the police ignore Miller's help.

As the body count rises they are forced to work with him as Miller himself finally becomes a target for the slaughterer. Will he stop the carnage or become part of it?

Seventh Victim


Robert Sheckley

It is common and legal to murder someone if you want. The only catch is that if you want to kill someone, you must later be a voluntary victim, and it is up to you survive the murder attempt and be able to eliminate the would-be murderer. A man who has already done six murders (and survived six attempts against his own life) gets a name of his seventh victim, and it is a woman!

The 10th Victim

Victim: Book 1

Robert Sheckley

It's the 21st Century and the ugliness of war no longer exists, except on a very personal level. Nowadays, people like Marcello Polletti, seller of Roman sunsets, and Caroline Meredith, lithe, beautiful, blonde and backed by corporate sponsors and the Roy Bell Dancers, hunt, chase and kill each other for sport and for the entertainment of the masses--until something oddly like personal human feelings pops up to confuse the players and up the each of them seeks to kill their 10th victim and rise in the ranks of the hunters.

In conjunction with the production of an Italian film based on Sheckley's 1953 short story "The Seventh Victim," Sheckley expanded the story into this novel.

Robert Sheckley

Victims of the Nova

Zarathustra Refugee Planets

John Brunner

When the star Zarathustra went nova, the desperate survisors spread out in all directions. Those that found habitable worlds were few, and after hundreds of years the Zarathustra Refugee Planets were either forgotten or in quarantine. Colonising a new planet requires much more than just settling on a newly discovered island of Old Earth. New planets were different in thousands of ways - any of those differences could mean death and disaster to a human settlement. And sometimes, refugees from another planet had to be brutal. For the inhabitants of Carrig, new arrivals brought invincible death guns - and their ruthless, all-powerful tyranny...

Now published in one volume, these brilliant novels once again show John Brunner to be a true master of science fiction writing.
