New York Signet / New American Library Mass Market Paperbacks Very Good- Ken Kelly 
15 volumes from Robert Adams' "Horseclans" series - an incomplete set (volumes 1-8, 10-13, 15-17). The original series consisted of 18 volumes (plus two short story anthologies by various authors). ***Please note: this grouping does not include volumes 9, 14 & 18 - "The Witch Goddess", "A Man Called Milo Morai" and "Clan of the Cats"*** 1. The Coming of the Horseclans - 199 pp, 1982 6th printing. "After two hundred years of searching for other immortals, the Undying High Lord Milo Morai has returned to the Horseclans to fulfill an ancient prophecy and lead them to their destined homeland by the sea. But in their path wait the armed might of the Ehleenee and an enemy even more treacherous - the Witchmen - pre-Holocaust scientists who have survived the centuries by stealing other men's bodies to house their evil minds and who have in their hidden stronghold the means of destroying all who will not beome their willing slaves." 2. Swords of the Horseclans - 180 pp, 1981 8th printing. "For seven hundred years, the Undying High Lord Milo has been building his Confederation, leading the Horseclans slowly across the lands once known as the United States, absorbing city-states and nomadic tribes alike, some by peaceful means, some by the sword. But now his enemies have banded together into an army far larger than Milo can muster. Led by an ancient and evil intelligence, this wave of unstoppable destruction is thundering swiftly down upon the Confederation forces." 3. Revenge of the Horseclans - 181 pp, 1982 4th printing. "The Thoheeks of Morguhn is dying, and his eldest son Bili has been summoned home to claim his inheritance after years of soldiering in the Middle Kingdoms. Yet Bili's reign could end before it begins. For the old Ehleen nobility and the priests of the ancient religion are planting the seeds of rebellion, swearing to wrest back from Bili and his fellow Horseclansmen the lands and wealth that once was theirs." 4. A Cat of Silvery Hue - 166 pp, 1979 8th printing. "Led by Lord Milo the Undying One, a twentieth-century mutant gifted with immortality, the men of the Horseclans are slowly reuniting the continent through the strength of their swords and their very special mental talents. Yet the Ehleenee, too, have dreams of power - dreams that have led them into a full-scale religious war of conquest. To overcome these fanatical marauders, Lord Milo must call upon his very best (to) save civilization from destruction." 5. The Savage Mountains - 164 pp, 1980 5th printing. "Before the Confederation forces lie the Armehnee Mountains, the home of savage tribes that constantly raid the lowlands, bringing with them destruction and death. But Milo's forces are about to face an even more dangerous enemy. For the Witchmen have long been at work in the mountains. And unbeknownst to Milo, his troops are marching into much more trouble than they bargained for - trouble that could spell the end of the Confederation!" 6. The Patrimony - 184 pp, 1980 4th printing. "Long live the Thoheeks! But who will this new leader of Sanderz-Vawn be? For although young Horseclansman Tim Sanderz, exiled long years ago, has come to reclaim his rightful inheritance, his stepmother wants to see her own Ehleen son as ruler in Vawn. And before Tim's half-brother Bili of Morguhn and the Undying High Lord Milo can send troops to his aid, Tim's Hall has become an armed camp where Ehleen battles Horseclansman with cunning, treachery, and sword-swinging might." 7. Horseclans Odyssey - 241 pp, 1981 2nd printing. "(The Horseclansmen) must rescue several of their children from kidnappers and teach their enemies the price of harming any people of the clans. But the path to both vengeance and their long-lost home will lead them down a treacherous road and straight into a sword-swinging battle with two powerful armies - a war in which there can be only one victor left alive." 8. The Death of a Legend - 185 pp, 1981 2nd printing. "When the Witchmen caused the earth to move and called forth the fires from the mountain's inner depths, the Moon Maidens, Ahrmehnee, and Thoheeks Bili's troops barely escaped with their lives. Driven by the flames into territory said to be peopled by monstrous half-humans, Bili was forced to choose between having the dangers of nature gone mad or fighting the savage natives on their own ground. But before he could decide, his troops were spotted by the beings who claimed this eerie land as their own and would use powereful spells of magic and illusion to send any intruders to their doom." 10. Bili the Axe - 185 pp, 1983 2nd printing. "With the help of powerful inhuman allies, Prince Byruhn has persuaded Bili and his warriors to delay their return to Confederation lands and join in his campaign against the deadly invading army that threatens to destroy New Kuhmbuhluhn. But even as Bili and his warriors rally to the Kuhmbuhluhners' aid, the forces of the Witchmen are on the move again." 11. Champion of the Last Battle - 201 pp, 1983 2nd printing. "The day of prophecy has come at last - the time for Bili and Prince Byruhn to rally their troops for the final defense of New Kuhmbuhluhn. But even as the people of the kingdom flock into their great stone city and Bili's warriors take up their posts on the walls, the Skohshuns are building new weapons of destruction to storm the fortress. And within the very castle grounds stalks a creature of nightmare, striking down the defenders one by one in a reign of bloody terror that may prove far more deadly thatn the enemy at their gates." 12. A Woman of the Horseclans - 197 pp, 1983 4th printing. "Shunned by her own folk as a creature of Evil, Bettylou Hanson found an instant welcome among the people of the Horseclans. Young, healthy, intelligent, and gifted with powerful mindspeak potential, she was everything Milo Morai's people looked for in a clan member. But even Milo himself couldn't have foreseen the powerful role Bettylou was to play in the future of the Krooguh clan. For the frightened girl who Tim Krooguh had rescued from certain death was destined to become a living legend among the Kindred, a fighter whose courage would rouse the clans against a foul and dangerous foe." 13. Horses of the North - 253 pp, 1985 1st printing. "Within time, some of (the Horseclan's) laws changed or were forgotten but there remained one that must never be broken - 'Kindred must not fight Kindred!' Yet now, clans Linsee and Skaht were on the brink of a bloodfeud that could spread like prairie fire throughout the Horseclans. Could even Milo smother the sparks of hatred before they blazed up to destroy all of the Horseclans?" 15. The Memories of Milo Morai - 221 pp, 1986 1st printing. "Milo Morai now journeyed with a select band to explore unknown territory. Perhaps days or weeks ahead, Milo would discover an untouched ruin of the Old Ones, a veritable treasure-trove of rare metals and trade goods to enrich the Horseclans. More than dead ruins awaited Milo and his valiant band of hunters. For on the trail they now rode lurked nightmare creatures hungering for the blood of man. And at the end of the road waited heirs to a legacy of violence which might claim the men and women of the Horseclans as the final victims in a war that should have ended hundreds of years ago." 16. Trumpets of War - 223 pp, 1987 2nd printing. "The High King Zastros and his evil witch queen had finally met their match when they'd challenged Milo Morai and his Confederation Army to battle. Yet with the menace of Zastros destroyed, the Confederation faced a still greater challenge - for in his mad campaign, Zastros had drained the very lifeblood from his kingdom of Southern Ehleenoee. Only chaos now reigned there, as bandits, killers, and bands of renegade warriors roved the land. Milo had pledged to bring peace back to this devastated realm. But could his former enemies, now become allies, be trusted to live by Confederation law in their troubled lands? Or did traitors wait to betray Milo's warriors to a terrible doom?" 17. Madman's Army - 222 pp, 1987 2nd printing. "Sending some of his most trusted agents before him, backed by those doughty warriors, the Horseclansmen, Milo hoped to see the decimated kingdom (of Zastros) rapidly reorganized into a thriving realm. But neither he nor any of his allies had bargained for the evil hidden within the very heart of the land's new government - an evil fueled by Milo's most ancient and hated enemies, an evil that might well destroy all of Southern Ehleenohee and become a dread weapon against the Confederation itself!"

With these words Major- General Henry Heth set in train the course of events culminating in the titanic clash around the small Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg. On 1 July two Confederate Corps swept towards this strategic crossroads as Federal troops fought a desper a t e d e l aying action. The men of the Army of Northern Virginia were the best in the Confederacy. Under Robert E. Lee they had whipped every Federal force sent against them, and they were confident this time would be no exception. As the firs t at ta c ks s we pt forward full of confidence they were met by a storm of fire. Judging from the determination of their bluecoated adversaries this was going to be no ordinary fight."

Fought with weapons of a sophistication beyond anything previously displayed in battle, against a ruthless dictator who se invastion of Kuwait had been universally condemned, it was a conflict waged with an unparalleled sense of international common purpose. Under the fierce glare of world media attention, commanders had to be appointed to manage a highly v o l a t i l e s ituation - with hostages shielding Saddam Hussein's military installations, Iraq's breached trade sanctions needing enforcement, the constant threat of chemical warfare and the Coalition's objectives gradually shifting from defence to o ff en ce .. .( T hi s book) is the fascinating, revelatory chronicle of war from the Allied nerve centre, analysing the American's brilliant execution of the air and the land campaigns.

Osprey, London, 1991, first edition. 
128 pp, 11 7/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1855321491 Profuesly illustrated with colour photographs. "Built to counter the seemingly invincible Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat, the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle has proven to be more than a match for any 'red' fighter interceptor for over 15 years. Carrying the all-seeing Hughes AN/APG-63 radar inside its massive radome, the interception capabilities of the Eagle have been matched only by its US Navy rival, the F-14 Tomcat. Although a large ae roplane, the Eagle is incredibly agile, with plenty of power from its twin afterburning Pratt & Whitney F-100 tubrofans. These allow a pilot to exploit the F-15 Eagle's suberb in-flight characteristics to the fullest extent. Entering frontline s q u adron service with the USAF's Tactical Air Command in late 1974, the F-15 has gone on to equip no less than six tactical fighter wings based in the USA, and one apiece in Germany and Japan. Five Air National Guard units also bolster the fron t li ne r anks with earlier version of the mighty Eagle. All USAF operators of the potent F-15 are graphically featured in this stunning volume. A chapter on the rarely illustrated Japanese Air Self-Defence Force complements the star-spangled F-1 5s ." Mi nor edge wear, small faint erasure mark at top of free front endpaper.

Four volume set, 6 7/8" H. 1. The Far Kingdoms - 439 pp, 1994 1st printing, ISBN 0345380568 - "a place of bright sunlight and magic, where wine and song were always sweet, every purse was fat with gold, and every heart at ease. (It was) said to lie in the distant east, across the straits of the Narrow Sea, beyond the benighted Pepper Coast, in uncharted territory. Young, pampered Amalric Antero cared only for real places and possible dreams. But then he meet Janos Greycloak, a dashing soldier who dabbled in forbidden magic and who carried on him proof of riches and mysteries beyond imagination. And suddenly Amalric found himself setting out on the adventure of a lifetime, a daring and perilous quest through unknown lands peopled by nightmares, to seek the ultimate in fables." 2. The Warrior's Tale - 471 pp, 1995 3rd printing, ISBN 0345387341 - Captain Rali Emilie Antero came from an illustrious family of traders, wizards, and adventurers. But Rali cared little for magic, and even less for journeying. She was a soldier, captain of the elite Maranon Guard, staunch defenders of the magestic city of Orissa. But her family legacy was about to catch up with her. For the Guard's latest mission was sheer suicide: a sea-going odyssey in search of an evil master wizard - the last Archon of Lycanth - who had fled with an secret doomsday spell that could destroy all of civilization. It would be Rali's greatest challenge: a desperate pursuit, raging across the great Western Sea to the fire reefs that marked the end of the world - and beyond, to places unmarked even in legend." 3. Kingdoms of the Night - 436 pp, 1996 first printing, ISBN 0345387325 - "Ever since Amalric Antero returned from the legendary Far Kingdoms, bringing with him magic and riches, the people of Orissa believed they lived in a golden age. Even Amalric did not suspect the truth: that dark forces from another world threatened his beloved city. Then a beautiful stranger arrived claiming to be the great-granddaughter of Janos Greycloak, master-wizard and betrayer of Amalric's youth. And Amalric learned that the idyllic lands he had thought were the Far Kingdoms were not - and that the real Far Kingdoms, The Kingdoms of the Night, were all that stood between civilization and unimaginably evil powers from another world. But now the strength of the Kingdoms was flagging. Only someone with a stout heart and a legacy of magic flowing through his veins - someone like Amalric Antero - could hope to unravel the secrets of the Old Ones and lock the door between realities once and for all. And so Amalric set out, with little more than his wits and the magic of another Greycloak, to find the Kingdoms of the Night." 4. The Warrior Returns - 440 pp, 1997 1st printing, ISBN 0345413121 - "All of Orissa believed that Rali Emilie Antero, legendary warrior and sorceress extraordinaire, was dead, lost at sea during some grand adventure gone wrong. In fact, Rali was not dead, but left entombed in ice to dream for eternity - until a goddess needed her for one last quest. Novari, a beautiful succubus intent on achieving ultimate power, had swept the world by storm. All the Anteros has been assassinated - save one: a golden, magical child named Emilie. Novari had succeeded in taking Orissa. Now she had only to seize little Emilie, as well. She never counted on the return of Rali Antero - ."
