The Cross-Time Engineer - 259 pp, 1986 1st printing, ISBN 0345327624. "One moment Conrad Schwartz was a hungover hiker in the mountains of modern Poland, the next he was running for his life from an angry Teutonic knight. At first he just thought he'd stumbled across a mad hermit. But several days of ever stranger events convinced him that he had somehow been stranded in 1231 A.D. And that meant Conrad had to turn Medieval Poland into the most powerful country in the world. Otherwise the Mongols were destined to destroy it - in just ten years!" 2. The High-Tech Knight - 247 pp, 1989 1st printing, ISBN 0345327632. "Somehow, Conrad found himself under investigation by the Inquisition, got himself knighted, was granted his own fief, and made a few enemies. Somehow, he had to round up a few vassals, build himself a city, and figure out how to survive armed combat against the Champion of the Teutonic Knights, one of the Toughest Men Alive. Then he'd have time to worry about the Mongols - ." 3. The Radiant Warrior - 281 pp, 1989 1st printing, ISBN 0345327640. "(Conrad has) 'invented' all the modern advances, things like prefabricated housing, playboy clubs, the steam engine, universal education, the cloth factory, and belly dancing. But wars are fought with warriors, not strong economies, and Conrad would need the very best. So he set out to create an army - ." 5. Lord Conrad's Lady - 296 pp, 1990, 5th printing, ISBN 0345368495. "Vacation in Peaceful Medieval Poland. See the ancient city of Cracow burn! Wallow in the frightful murder of moblewomen and children at the invincible castle of East Gate! Enjoy the attack of the crazy old ladies at Sir Miesko's manor! Watch the regretful demise of the remaining Mongols as they drown in the cesspool at Three Walls! Consider various offers made to Conrad Stargard by eager blondes of just-barely-marriageable age! Notice his wife, the formidable Lady Francine, getting annoyed!" 6. Conrad's Quest for Rubber - 292 pp, 1998 1st printing, ISBN 0345368509. "Thanks to Conrad's knack for 'inventing' such astonishing things as steam engines, machine guns, radios, and riverboats, he's turned Medieval Poland into a military powerhouse - capable of repelling invasions by marauding Mongols and Teutonic troops alike. Now, with enemies vanquished, industry booming, and peace in the land, it is time to continue Poland's remarkable technological progress. And doing so requires harvesting raw materials only Lord Conrad knows where to 'discover'. Thus is founded the Explorer's Corps, whose intrepid members set out to map new frontiers from the Arctic Circle to the Amazon. But can even Conrad's knowledge of the far future prepare him and his subjects for what lies just beyond the borders of their kingdom?"
