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..
In the green pastures of the English countryside, there is a village that hides a secret; and it’s hungry.
The following story is true; well almost…… there really was a Bushby Hall. I saw it briefly in the late summer of my fourteenth year.
From the very first moment I saw the old building, I knew something special; something that would live with me for the rest of my life
was about to happen, though in reality the hall was ending its life, My brother-in-law was tearing it down.
In all I remember it taking less than three weeks from magnificence to ruin and during that time I was there often, for Bushby Hall had a ghost. One night I think I saw it; all I know for certain was that things that
had no logical explanation happened. Yet even as the building was reduced to no more than a pile of rubble it's greatest secret was only
then revealed. There was a cellar, hidden from view for untold generations....
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.
Bloodthirsty Pirates: World War II: an Island paradise, and a stolen Ruby with mystical powers makes a leisurely sailing
holiday, anything but. Alone and trapped on an island two children must find a way to save their parents before the Shah’s mystic ruby brings
time back into order.
There is a time far, far into the future where all that has happened before is forgotten. A future where all people know of
is a century's long war that raged even before the systems were colonized. Some believe that having the knowledge of how it began can bring it to
an end, but changing the past has consequences that no one could have imagined.
The future can never escape from the past no more than situations can remain the same. Such too can be said of each
and every person, but you and I are not always who we seem to be, even to ourselves let alone to a stranger. In some the secrets are even
deeper, so deep that even they are unaware of their place or of the course that fate has laid out before them.
There comes a time when the last great war is almost forgotten: a time when people grow and make what they need for the
simple lives they live. It is also a time of oppression; when overlords are suspicious of the people, for now is the time foretold. …in the
end devastation will be faced. Men will weep. Women will perish. Families will be orphaned. Ruin will reign. Hope will be gone. Death will give
forth life. Out of the sun good will face evil in the unwinnable, final battle. Evil will be ripped apart. Good will be cast into pieces. The
prophecy will come to pass.
We cannot choose our relatives; but accept who they are. We choose our friends, but often find they are not the people
who we believed them to be. We work with our associates, but know little of their thoughts. We accept a superior’s choice, while preferring
our own. Life is defined by choices that we make; every moment of every day, but of all our choices the wisest among us know that we choose
our enemies very carefully.
Time , Space and Mystisism - Book 6 of the Company Wars Chronicle
Of all creatures, the humans mind is constantly inconsistent. We strive
for perfection and we search for knowledge: given a fact we will question
it to the point of disbelief. Yet we often regard fact as suspect, hesitate
and do nothing: but a rumour; based on nothing more than hearsay will be
accepted as truth above fact and our emotions will then spur us into action.
There was much more to Rhea than Alexi had ever imagined; and
more than he could ever have believed.

The Alan P. Ellis Short Story Collection
Imagination is a wonderful thing: it takes us to places where we will
never go; places where fantasy comes alive: places where we can live out
our dreams, and maybe places from where we never want to return. Could an
event, daydreamed and fantasised for many, many years actually happen, and
put us somewhere where our fantasy becomes our prison.
Disillusionment can be a great motivator, and when the only way out is up Jet
learns that friends can be found in the most unlikely of places: that a courier service is much more than delivering
parcels and that diamonds are everyone's best friends.
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
A city populated only by women; sounds like the place Jet Black would feel right at home, but a lesbos utopia it
isn’t when Mermen enslave the population; you've lost half the crew, and your branded a traitor.
There are many options to end the World, but its always someone;
someplace far away who will. Someone who we as individuals can't control;
it will be these distant people who will set the stage for Armageddon. In
our powerlessness situation the greatest fear is that it will be us who
are the cannon fodder or victims: but suppose it wasnt; but instead
that each one of us was given a choice in our own destruction; if each one
of us inadvertently, and individually set the stage for total World annihilation.
What would Halloween parties be without spirits and ghosts…. and old houses; but be sure, be very sure that there’s nothing
there: living or dead, before you accept the invitation to step through the door.

END MAIN TABLE
John is not an author: an author can be many things, and not always a teller of tales.
John is not a writer: writers often believe that words and form are more important than narrative, but life rarely follows a set of rules.
What John is, is a storyteller; the most important thing to him is the story, and how make-believe can take the reader with him on a shared fantasy.
John is also a dreamer. When he was a young and shy teenager he dreamed of meeting a special girl. He dreamt of one day of
watching his children and grandchildren learn, play and grow. When he lived in an industrial city he dreamed of living in the
Rainforest, and he dreamt of leaving the English midlands to live close to the Coral Sea. He dreamt of exploring the World;
seeing strange places, meeting different people and experiencing other cultures. John is a dreamer, and he knows that dreams
are visions of a future waiting to happen; but even when his dreams have become reality he can't stop dreaming, and these books
venture into the corners of his imagination: or maybe his nightmares; that maybe one day could actually happen.

In the Company Wars Chronicles Alan P. Ellis is portrayed as an arrogant and self-important writer who crossed time and
space to become to become part of the story himself.
Alan was intended to remain a briefly encountered character, But there is also a side of me that sympathises with Alan so I have given him
the to showcase more of his stories.
Alan P. Ellis is given author credit for a series of books about Jet Black. The idea was to depict Jet as a kind of Flash Gordon
or Buck Rogers: the over the top kind of person who gets into fanciful and implausible situations.
Jet was supposed to be no more than an footnote to Alan P. Ellis, but as anyone who writes will know; characters sometimes refuse to act the way
we intended them to, and it occurred to me long after I had introduced Alan that by making Jet into a far-fetched character gave me the opportunity to
use a few 'what if' situations I had at the back of my mind without taking the stories too seriously.
Jet may have started as a joke, but it seems Alan has had the last laugh.
