The Impossible Adventures of Jet Black and the Starship Crew

So what is Jet to do? To save his and the lives of the crew he has committed theft on a grand scale and made a ruthless enemy. Maybe find a safe hideout, but he can't stay hidden for ever when injustice is wreaked on a helpless society. Then he must risk the Silver Flyer, and give his foe the opportunity to eliminate all the evidence; including him.

Jet and the crew find a 3000k metal sphere in deep space. Why has it apparently been abandoned: why is it full of a single element; and what is it for? It's up to jet to solve the puzzle, and escape in time; if he can.

A forced landing is a pilot’s worst nightmare. The forced landing of an airliner, on the frigid wastes of Antarctica, is unimaginable. As winter draws its white cloak over the continent, rescue becomes impossible; hope slips away, and the ice entombs its victims. Years pass, generations come and go: alien contact is made, and the world is subjugated. Now the future depends on one man.




The luck of the draw, fate, destiny. Who knows what controls our future, or are we all just helpless passengers on our own airplane that will never return.
