Bridgehead
There's a secret in the basement of the engineering building. Three travelers, claiming to be from a utopia six thousand years hence, are helping Dr. Gustafson and his graduate staff invent a time transport. Their stated goal: to stop war and secure a peaceful future.
Overloaded and overtaxed, the transport experiments start to go wrong. Dreadfully wrong. What the professors don't know is that the Travelers have their own plans for the machine. And their own secrets….
The future isn't peaceful. The past is not the past. And the machine in the engineering building has everything to do with an unimaginable war.

The Forlorn Hope
They had fought long and hard, and damn near won in spite of everything. But now the men who hired them are going to sell them to the enemy...and so begins a novel of adventure in which a band of Star Mecenaries is driven across the face of a planet by enemies bent on their distruction. With only the guns in their hands, this tiny band must battle ships, artillery, treachery, and the most powerful tank in the universe.

Birds of Prey
Rome, 262 A.D: It had been the capital of the greatest civilization on Earth. Now both city and civilization are dying. Imperial unity has shattered as separatist and usurpers squabble among themselves and greater enemies gather to swallow them all. One man stands between humanity and the Long Night, matching his savage determination against a hopeless future. He is Aulus Perennius, an Imperial secret agent as tough and ruthless as the age in which he lives. Until now, though, his enemies have all been human.

Up From Hell
Taranis and his men forage for the collected tribes of the Crow as they march against the Romans, but he brings back more than he bargained for when he frees a beautiful and mysterious prisoner, Alpnu. Together they face a power sealed in a cave for millennia and newly risen from Hell.

Dinosaurs & a Dirigible
All five of David Drake's time travel stories collected for the first time in one volume, including dinosaur tale "Time Safari."
Henry Vickers's job is to keep clients safe from the dinosaurs they're hunting. That's the easy part. The hard part is to keep the clients safe from themselves and each other. Men with enough money to go into the past to hunt the largest land animals of all time are powerful and self-willed. Some make an effort to act like decent human beings, but more are selfish, stupid, sadistic--or all three together. The few women are likely to be worse.
Vickers doesn't expect rich people to understand the dangers of where they are and what they're doing; he doesn't expect them to be competent with the powerful rifles they carry; and he particularly doesn't expect them to be reasonable. He treats his clients' behavior as he does the rain and the baking heat--the cost of having a life he loves and which he couldn't afford in any other way.
But no matter how detached Vickers tries to be, eventually there are moral questions that he can't ignore. And when Henry Vickers starts to behave like a human being instead of a hunting guide, things get really dangerous.
And in a complete change of pace: "Travellers." An airship is crossing the United States in 1897 in search of the weird and the wonderful. The two teenagers aboard know that the airship's captain is a great scientist and inventor--but they don't know how much more he is also.

Old Nathan
The forces of evil are poised to prey on the folk of the hamlets and hollows: witches, demons, and red-handed men—but first they'll have to overcome Old Nathan the Wizard.
He doesn't claim much for his magical powers, but they're real enough for what they are—and besides, he hasn't forgotten how to use his long flintlock rifle ....
Enter the gritty, realistic world of Old Nathan, a backwoodsman who talks to animals and says he'll face The Devil himself-and who in the end will have to face The Devil in very fact.

Patriots
Greenwood is a beautiful, pastoral world, recently settled by a small number of rugged individualists, each of whom has his or her idea of how things should be run. But the lawyers, politicians, and bean-counters of some older colonies see Greenwood simply as potential profits, discounting the prior claims of the settlers. And when the Earth government decides to send an army to rule the colony by force, the settlers must unite or lose their livelihoods and maybe their lives. Mark Maxwell, taking a year off to travel the frontier planets before being forced to join his father's law firm, runs into Yerby Bannock, a Greenwood settler with enthusiasms as big as all outdoors, and Yerby's sister, Amy, who is coming home from school. Swept along by force of circumstance, these unlikely allies find themselves working together to save Greenwood. There's action aplenty, as Yerby, who feels that most problems can be settled by brute force, tempered by the native common sense of Army and the shrewd counsel of Mark, struggles to weld the fractious Greenwood pioneers into a unity that can withstand the combined might of the Old World.

All the Way to the Gallows
The author of the bestselling Hammer's Slammers series now takes deadly aim at readers' funny bones with goblin paratroopers, hard-boiled space cops saddled with a politically correct alien supervisor, rough, tough mercenary elves trying to get rid of an obnoxiously vocal magic talisman, and much more.

Balefires
Balefires is the long-awaited collection of David Drake's weird and fantastic fiction. Before Drake was a best-selling author of military science fiction, he was a prolific writer of horror and fantasy short fiction. Balefires collects some of his earliest professional sales (including his first sale to Arkham House.) In addition, Balefires brings together many stories set in the worlds of his fantasy novels (Ranks of Bronze, Lord of the Isles, etc.) and contains original fiction. More than just a collection of stories, Balefires features extensive story notes that chronicle the development of the writing career of one of the science fiction's most popular writers, and provides detailed snapshots of the larger than life editors, publishers and writers that Drake has worked with throughout his career.
