Count Brass - 140 pp, Mayflower/Granada, London, 1977. "A romance set in the marshes of Kamarg, dominated by the ancient Castle Brass. Chill to the incredible adventures of Dorian Hawkmoon, the Duke of Koln!" 2. The Champion of Garathorm - 127 pp, Mayflower/Granada, London, 1980. "Dorian Hawkmoon the invincible, the Eternal Champion, the Duke of Koln, is dying from melancholia. His wife Yisselda, beautiful daughter of Count Brass, has perished in the Battle of Londra - or so the evidence suggests. But somewhere in the caverns of his soul Hawkmoon knows otherwise, and he is willing to journey through time and space and previous incarnations to grasp the key to her fate." 3. The Quest for Tanelorn - 155 pp, Dell, NY, 1981. "The City at the Edge of Time holds the secret of the evil force that has stolen Dorian Hawkmoon's future. The Hero of the Runestaff must ride a ghostly death ship to join his counerparts from other worlds. To challenge the Dark Powers and free Tanelorn from the grip of Chaos. His destiny and the fate of a million universes hang in the balance." 4. The Jewel in the Skull - 223 pp, Daw, NY, 1977. "Dorian Hawkmoon fell under the power of the Runestaff, a mysterious artifact more ancient than Time itself. His destiny, shaped by a vengeful oath sworn by the maddened Baron Meliadus of the Dark Empire, pitted him in battle against his own allies and forced him, by the Black Jewel embedded in his skull, to betray his very heritage." 5. The Mad God's Amulet - 142 pp, Mayflower, London, 1972. "Dorian Hawkmoon's betrothed Yisselda had been abducted by the Mad God, an evil sorcerer who had usurped the Red Amulet of the Runestaff. The amulet gave the power of the Runestaff itself to its possessor, and the Mad God was perverting that mighty power to his own unimaginably evil ends. Even as the destructive shadow of the Dark Empire spread across the world, Hawkmoon knew that only he could rescue Yisselda - and the Red Amulet - from the Mad God." 6. The Runestaff - 143 pp, Mayflower, London, 1969. " 'Those who swear by the Runestaff must then benefit or suffer from the consequences of the fixed pattern of destiny that they set in motion.' And Baron Meliadus of Kroiden had sworn such an oath, and sworn vengeance against all of Castle Brass, had sworn that Yisselda, Count Brass's daughter, would be his. On that day, many months earlier, he had fixed the pattern of fate; a pattern that had involved him in strange destructive schemes, that had involved Dorian Hawkmoon in wild and uncanny adventures in distant places, and that was now nearing its terrible resolution." 7. Knight of the Swords - 176 pp, Berkley, NY, 1986. "By creating Man, the universe had betrayed the old races. Spreading like a pestilence across the Earth, Man destroyed the Vadhagh and the Nhadragh, the ancient peoples. Only Vadhagh Prince Corum remained to raise his sword, to avenge the slaughter of his family and race, to battle the unjust fate of a blind and deaf universe." 8. The Queen of Swords - 160 pp, Berkley, NY, 1986. "The realm of Chaos was cast into disorder, for the Vadhagh Prince Corum - last of his ancient race - had slain the Knight of the Swords. Thus the dreaded Queen turned upon Corum, and Mankind began its bloody march across the Earth. All that was gracious and beautiful stood in peril. And so Corum set out upon his fateful odyssey." 9. The Oak and the Ram - 137 pp, Quartet, London, 1976. "The Archdruid Amergin is in captivity and under enchantment. Without him the Mabden people can never rise up and overthrow their oppressors. Thus Corum undertakes his second great quest, and though he must visit powerful and treacherous places, struggle with fearful enemies, he vows to return with Amergin safe, or not return at all." 10. The Hollow Lands - 180 pp, Mayflower, St. Albans, 1975. "Having narrowly escaped death in Victorian England, Jherek Carnelian is back in his own time. But without his love, Amelia Underwood. His obsession with her has not abated but Brannart Morphail refuses to lend him another time machine and he is stranded. Until one fateful day he meets Robot Nurse, guardian of ageless children, who agrees to send him back to 19th Century London. In the fashionable Cafe Royale two worlds and two cultures collide and Jherek's plight becomes more desperate - ." 11. The End of All Songs - 275 pp, Avon, NY, 1978.
