The Mountain of the Holy Cross near Roaring Fork, Colorado, has been held sacred by generations of followers of the Telluric Faith. But now the mountain is a temple of science, for deep within the ancient rock lies the Solar Neutrino Research Station. The Tellurians - and their gods - aren't happy.Since the Station started operating, strange and inexplicable events have been happening in Gypsum, the isolated town dominated by the towering peak. There are violent earth tremors and freak electrical storms, and people are dying from radiation. When science journalist Frank Kersh arrives to report on the Station's work he begins to draw some very unscientific conclusions about the research programme - and soon he is involved in a maelstrom of savage violence and destruction as an apocalyptic Tellurian prophet foretells the end of the world.Maybe the Tellurians aren't crazy after all . . .

On the wasteland between their houses, Terry Webb and his mates are battling the Nazzies and Nips, inflamed by the Movietone News at the Saturday matinee, the exploits of Hollywood tough guys and the tales of brothers and dads and uncles who fought for their country. But in the 1950s, Britain is struggling to emerge from beneath the long shadow left in the wake of the Second World War. Life is all rationing, 'make-do-and-mend', deprivation and poverty, especially in the Northern cotton towns.As far as the boys are concerned it's all just a bit of fun, just like their opportunistic fumblings and increasing interest in girls - until Terry's favourite uncle, a Desert Rat, comes home, bearing all the scars of Monty's North Africa campaign and bringing a piece of the war back with him. And suddenly for Terry, life's no longer a game, but there's real-life danger - and real-life tragedy . . .The past is truly is a foreign country in this coming-of-age novel based on Trevor Hoyle's short story, the winner of the Transatlantic Review short story competition, evoking the joys, frustrations, injustices, excitement, battles, discoveries and bloody-minded wonder of a boy slowly learning to become a man.

Vail

Following a motorway accident in which both his wife and daughter are killed, Jack Vail, now alone in the world, finds himself in London - though it is not quite the city as we know it. While his home in the North of England was stricken with poverty and radiation poisoning, the capital is characterized by consumerism, media-obsession and moral corruption. Basic manufacturing no longer exists, but pornography, show business and money-marketing flourish. Vail is immediately drawn into this sinister world, yet throughout the novel he attempts to maintain a belief in a larger order of things. In such a society, however, it seems impossible to defy the chaos, and it isn't long before Vail is engulfed by the ever-developing anarchy surrounding him. Through his nightmarish vision of the country in a not-too-distant future, award-winning author Trevor Hoyle vividly reflects the grim mood of 1980s Britain, the period in which this cult novel was originally published.
