The dark tower by Stephen King( Book )

35 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final book in the Dark Tower cycle. Thus continues Roland the Gunslinger and his relentless quest to reach The Tower in a last ditch effort to save all that is. Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room -- really a chamber of horrors -- in Thunderclap's Fedic; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and Sixty-first with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters

A violent ring slipped free of the alien spaceship. It spun on its axis twice, like a coin on a tabletop. Then it rushed toward them. Tsoong Delilah slapped quick fingers on the board, and their rocket bucked and tried to turn away. Thrust forward, she reached out despairingly toward the weaponry board, but there was no time to solve the riddles of the arming and aiming and launching of the missiles, either

FANTASY. What if Snow White were the real villain and the "wicked queen" just a sadly maligned innocent? What if awakening Sleeping Beauty would be the mistake of a lifetime - of several lifetimes? What if the famous folk tales were retold with an eye to more horrific possibilities? Only Tanith Lee - "Goddess-Empress of the Hot Read" (Village Voice) - could retell the world-famous tales of the Brothers Grimm (and others) as they might have been told by the Sisters Grimmer! This special edition, conjured together for the 30th Anniversary of the original edition, adds a new Grimmer fairy tale written especially for this volume!

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the free-fall environment of the Smoke Ring, the descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remembered their Earth roots-or the existence of sharls Davis Kendy, the computer-program despot of the ship. Until Kendy initiated contact once more. Fourteen years later, only Jeffer, the Citizens Tree Scientist, knew that Kendy was still watching-and waiting. Then the Citizens Tree people rescued a family of loggers and learned for the first time of the Admiralty, a large society living in free fall amid the floating debris called the Clump. And it was likely that the Admiralty had maintained, intact, Dicipline's original computer library. Exploration was a temptation neither Jeffer nor Kendy could resist, and neither citizens Tree nor Sharls Davis Kendy would ever be the same again

The nonborn king by Julian May( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story began with a group of talented misfits from the Galactic Milieu of 2110 A.D. who passed through a time portal, hoping to find an idyllic world six million years ago in Earth's Pliocene Epoch. Instead, they encountered two exiled alien races-the knightly Tanu, who had made slaves of the time travelers, and the dwarfish Firvulag, fierce rivals of the Tanu. At the end of The Golden Tore, one of the humans, Felice Landry, engineered a stunning cataclysm, a flood that destroyed the Tanu capital and put an end to that race's domination of Pliocene Europe. In The Nonbom King, Aiken Drum, a young human with awesome mental powers, manages to usurp the Tanu throne. Aiken faces opposition from human-hating Tanu, from free humans who mistrust his fantastic mind-powers, from the madwoman Felice, who has vowed to destroy him, and from the revitalized Firvulag, who now greatly out-number the Tanu-human coalition that Aiken has patched together. Aiken's efforts to retain his throne are complicated by the appearance of a new menace posed by survivors of the Metapsychic Rebellion of 2083, who, for the past 27 years, lived quietly in North America. Now these powerful humans, led by Marc Remillard, who almost succeeded in destroying the benevolent Galactic Milieu, seek to take advantage of the chaos in King Aiken's Many-Colored Land in order to seize control of the time-portal. The Nonborn King features the same blend of adventure, rich pageantry, humor, and fantastic eroticism that characterized The Many-Colored Land and The Golden Tore
