Far Edge of Darkness

by Linda Evans

Sibyl Johnson is a graduate student in classical archeology. She is just this side of her Ph. D. , when an anachronism at her dig in Italy causes her career to take a sudden lurch in time--and suddenly she's a slave in the very society she is studying. She, along with two others are castaways in time, victims of the same evil hand--and now they are out for vengeance.

Hell Hath No Fury, (Multiverse, Book 2)

by David Weber Linda Evans

THE WAR ACROSS THE WORLDS . . . It began with two men. They came from very different worlds- entirely different universes, in fact-and they met in a virgin forest on a duplicate planet Earth. Though neither of them had expected it, both of them realized how important the first contact with any other trans-universal human civilization might be. But something went wrong. Neither side knows who shot first. But both the magic-using civilization of Arcana and steel-and-steam age Sharona, with its psionic Talents, think it was the other side. And it doesn't really matter, now, because the original incident has snowballed. Both sides have additional dead to mourn; both sides have additional wrongs to avenge. Both sides have additional military forces moving towards the front. War between the universes is the last thing responsible leaders on either side want. But the fury of their respective populations, xenophobic fear of the unknown, and cries for "justice" (or vengeance), are all driving both sides towards the brink. The actions of local military commanders and diplomats may well determine the final outcome; and unscrupulous, power-hungry men have agendas of their own. The fuse has been lit, and a war stretching across the universes, across an endless succession of identical Earths, fought between dragons and trains, spells and crossbows, and repeating rifles and artillery is about to begin in white-hot rate and fury.

Hell's Gate (Multiverse, Book 1)

by David Weber Linda Evans

The Union of Arcana has expanded through the portals linking parallel universes for over a century and a half. In that time, its soldiers and sorcerers have laid claim to one uninhabited planet after another-all of them Earth-and in the process, the Union has become the most powerful, most wealthy civilization in all of human history. But all of that is about to come to a screeching halt, for the Union's scouts have just discovered a new portal, and on its far side lies a shattering revelation. Arcana is not alone, after all. There is another human society, Sharona, which has also been exploring the Multiverse, and the first contact between them did not go well. Arcana is horrified by the alien weapons of its sudden opponents, weapons its sorcerers cannot explain or duplicate. Weapons based upon something called . . . science. But Sharona is equally horrified by Arcana's "magical" weapons. Neither side expected the confrontation. Both sides think the other fired first, and no one on either side understands the "technology" of the other. But as the initial disastrous contact snowballs into all-out warfare, both sides can agree on one thing. The portal which brought them together is Hell's Gate itself!
