01. Empire Day
New York – July 1976 – in a World in which New England remains the sparkling jewel in the crown of the British Empire.

It is the day before Empire Day – 4th July – the day each year when the British Empire marks the brutal crushing of the rebellion dignified by the treachery of the fifty-six delegates to the Continental Congress who were so foolhardy as to sign the infamous Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on that day of infamy in 1776.

It is nearly two hundred years since George Washington was killed and his Continental Army was destroyed in the Battle of Long Island and now New England, that most quintessentially loyal and ‘English’ imperial fiefdom – at least in the original, or ‘First Thirteen’ colonies – is about to celebrate its devotion to the Crown and the Old Country, of which it still views, in the main, as the ‘mother country’.

Yet all is not roses. Since 1776 in a world of empires the British Empire has grown and prospered until now, it stands alone as the ultimate arbiter of global war and peace. The Royal Navy has enforced the global Pax Britannia for over a century since the World War of the 1860s established a lasting but increasingly tenuous ‘peace’ between the great powers.

Nonetheless, while elsewhere the Empire may be creaking at the seams, struggling to come to terms with a growing desire for self-determination; thus far the Pax Britannica has survived – buttressed by the commercial and industrial powerhouse of New England stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific North West – intact for all that barely a year goes by without the outbreak of another small, colonial war somewhere…

This said, the British ‘Imperial System’ remains the envy of its friends and enemies alike and nowhere has it been so successful as in North America, where peace and prosperity has ruled in the vast Canadian dominions and the twenty-nine old and recent colonies of the Commonwealth of New England for the best part of two centuries.

In Whitehall every British government in living memory has complacently based its ‘American Policy’ on the one immutable, unchanging fact of New England politics; that the First Thirteen colonies will never agree with each other about anything, let alone that the sixteen ‘Johnny-come-lately’ new (that is, post-1776) colonies, protectorates, territories and possessions which comprise half the population and eight-tenths of the land area of New England, should ever have any say in their affairs!

03. Travels Through the Wind
It is the late spring of 1978 in a world in which the American Revolution failed in 1776 after George Washington was killed and the Continental Army was destroyed at the Battle of Long Island.

The rumbling aftershocks of the Empire Day atrocities which reverberated through the pages of Two Hundred Lost Years are threatening to come to the boil.

While in Philadelphia the politics become ever more fractious in Spain the Royal Alcazar is a citadel besieged in a country which might as well still be stuck in the nineteenth century.

Preparations for war hamstrung by colonial politics begin to gather pace in New England in a climate where the Governor in his mansion and the government back in England continues to tiptoe around provocations in the Caribbean and the Borderlands of the South.

In Spain, Melody Danson and Henrietta De L’Isle have performed their role as distractions, adornments to a diplomatic mission whose only purpose is to delay the moment when the truth about the Empire Day attacks finally emerge. Because, when that day comes the road to war will suddenly confront the great European powers.

The Peace of Paris, the basis of the post-Great War of 1857-66 settlement, threatened by Anglo-German-Russia tensions is now hostage to the machinations of a Spanish Empire in its death throes and the failing health of Old Spain, ‘the sick man of Europe’.

Brothers Abe and Alex Fielding find themselves making ready for war. Melody and Henrietta discover unlikely friends in the Mountains of Madrid. Journalist Albert Stanton of the Manhattan Globe unwittingly stumbles into a war zone. The Governor of the Commonwealth of New England and his political masters in England wrestle with a crisis they saw coming years ago but can do little or nothing to avert.

The World in which England’s Georgian colonies in the Americas became the keystone of the British Empire – upon which it seemed the Sun could never set – is about to fray around the edges and our heroes and heroines are going to find themselves directly in the firing line!

04. Remember Brave Achilles
The British Empire has sleepwalked, unprepared into war with the Triple Alliance, the Spanish colonies of the Caribbean and Central America.

But this is not to be a war like those which have gone before it; wars decided by crushing British sea power and eventually, on land by the superiority of the logistics and tactics of relatively small colonial armies in the South Western badlands.

No, this time it is the enemy, the Triple Alliance of Nuevo Granada, Cuba and Santo Domingo, allied to a miscellany of old Spanish crown colonies ringing the Caribbean and the Gulf of Spain, which seizes the initiative and in the opening days of the war deliver a series of hammer blows.

It began with a sneak invasion of Jamaica, the key strategic British base in the Caribbean, and the ambush of the light cruiser Achilles in the Windward Passage.

‘Remember Brave Achilles’ becomes the call to arms.

Yet this is not a war to be fought just in the West Indies or down in the contested borderlands.

In Spain – wracked by civil war Melody Danson, Henrietta De L’Isle and the Manhattan Globe man Albert Stanton are on the run from the Inquisition.

On Little Inagua Island in the West Indies Surgeon Lieutenant Abe Lincoln and his navigator, Ted Forest of the Royal Naval Air Service, both wounded, must fight for survival.

At sea the Atlantic Fleet, on paper invincible, must suddenly come to terms with that most vile of weapons – banned by treaty with the German Empire a decade ago – submarines. And while disaster beckons; still New England slumbers, and everybody knows that when it awakens, rudely as it must, that there will be all Hell to pay!

05. George Washington’s Ghost
Conventional wisdom is that if the Crown Colonies of the Commonwealth of New England ever unite in common purpose; then the Empire might fall. That this might happen at the very moment that century-old post-war settlement of the Treaty of Paris is threatening to fall apart, had been the unimaginable nightmare of generations of European monarchs, politicians, diplomats and generals.

The unthinkable is happening. Mexican troops are advancing through the South Western borderlands of New England; nothing can stop them. At sea, the supposedly invincible Royal Navy has been driven from the Caribbean and the Gulf of Spain. The handful of survivors of HMS Achilles are trapped in enemy territory. The three brothers unwittingly caught up in the events of Empire Day, 1976, are swept along by the tide of events, while news of Melody Danson and Henrietta De L’Isle’s adventures in Spain momentarily distract a bewildered and increasingly uneasy, public in the old and the new worlds.

In apparent disarray in the Americas, at home in England, the Government is attempting to navigate the fallout from the death of the Kaiser, distracted from the problems across the Atlantic. And then secrets more explosive than any of the weapons deployed in the war threatening to change the map of New England, burst in the midst of the crisis. In a world threatening to dissolve into chaos; who can step from the shadows to save the day?

07. The Lines of Laredo
What had seemed like just the latest border war with New England’s neighbours in the South West has broadened into a continental conflict with implications far beyond the cloistered enclave of the First Thirteen colonies.

As the machinations of great men play out in the British Isles, New England, Mexico City and back in Europe, the Fielding brothers, Melody Danson, George Washington and the Governor of New England find themselves moving through a world so changed in recent times that sometimes, they hardly recognise their own country any more.

Unsurprisingly, things are about to get more than a little uncomfortable for practically all our heroes…

09. Islands in the Stream
Of this Emma was in no doubt. Learning that both Miles Dempsey, the Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Imperial Civil Service and the Minister of War – the post had been titled ‘Secretary of State for Imperial Defence’ for decades until the resumption of the war with the Triple Alliance in the summer – were up and about and the august members of the Committee for Imperial Defence, effectively the rest of the War Cabinet, had been mobilised in the middle of the night, something awful had, or was about to go wrong.

We have a problem…

Hearing her say those terrifying words had an immediate, and electric effect on Emma’s husband of over thirty years.
The Prime Minister sat bolt upright and reached for the handset…

Having honestly believed that by dint of Machiavellian behind the scenes diplomacy and the fighting of what was supposed to be a ‘small’ regional war his Government had finally secured all its objectives in New England and contributed towards the creation of a new, hopefully more stable world order, could it be that fate is about to snatch disaster from the very jaws of victory?

1. Interstellar Caveman
You think you’re struggling to find your place in the universe?

Consider poor old Colin Douglass, a terminally ill insurance agent who awakens from centuries in cryogenic freeze to find Earth is a devastated wasteland. Now, he’s being pursued by a homicidal interstellar tourist board, and calculating insurance dividends is as outdated as making stone axes.

Sci-fi-hating technophobe Colin embarks on a desperate struggle to find a cure for his illness, as well as a place for himself in this strange new galaxy where toilets talk back, and door handles are a long-forgotten relic. Only by teaming up with his rescuer, hard-boiled, space-traveling archaeologist Tyresa Jak (that’s Doctor Jak to you), can Colin hope to succeed before time runs out.

Along the way, this galactic odd-couple must evade the Erd Tourist Board – a powerful mega-corporation which will do anything to ensure the mythical Earth stays mythical – and deal with a crackpot religious cult who not only possess a cure for Colin’s illness, but who also believe there is more to this caveman from Earth than meets the eye….

2. Faulty Prophet
Colin’s supposed to deliver a prophecy. Problem is, he forgot what to say…

Evangelist Brock T. Hanson believes Colin Douglass to be the prophet he’s been waiting for his whole life, the man who will lead the faithful back to Earth and trigger the most momentous event since Creation itself. But there’s a problem.

Actually, there are several.

First, Colin Douglass himself doesn’t believe a word of it and is the kind of chap who’d rather stay at home with a nice cup of tea than cross the galaxy on some foolish, idealistic crusade. Second, Earth lies within the territory of the Transhackers, a race of cold-blooded, trigger-happy cyborgs who don’t easily forgive those who trespass against them. And third, Colin Douglass might not even survive a trip to Earth because he is succumbing to a life-threatening illness.

When Hanson kidnaps Colin and takes him to Earth anyway, Tyresa Jak sets off in hot pursuit to rescue Colin before either the Transhackers or his disease can destroy him.

3. The Man with the Tick
Choosing between justice and ambition can be tougher than a…really tough thing.

J. J. Tiffin had it all: an ordinary apartment, a mediocre reputation, and a mid-level position in a bureaucratic police force. But then one day a mission went sour and he lost it all. Now he’s fighting to win it back.

To prove himself the galaxy’s finest law officer, Tiffin goes to bring justice to the crime-ridden world of Kappa Nostra. Braving the bent coppers, corrupt politicians and murderous gangsters, he goes undercover as a private investigator, unably assisted by fellow ex-cop Mokk, a man who thinks a SWAT team’s job is to deal with flies. However, things quickly escalate when the routine case of a philandering husband lands him on a murder charge. Digging deeper reveals an evil, galactic conspiracy tracing right back to the thing he loves the most.

Tiffin must cross the galaxy, expose the truth and face the dilemma of pursuing justice or personal ambition, all the while struggling against fearsome mobsters, interstellar assassins and a mastery of metaphor worse than a…than a…man who is poor at metaphors.
