From the SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal sample introduction to the fantastic work of Edmund Cooper. A respected critic and writer, whose work spanned four decades, Cooper began publishing SF in the 1950s and often portrayed a bleaker view of the future than many of his contemporaries. Cooper's works tended to depict unconventional heroes facing unfamiliar and remote environments - often in post-apocalyptic settings. This omnibus contains three titles that have been out of print for many years: THE CLOUD WALKER; ALL FOOLS' DAY and A FAR SUNSET.

The two halves of the well-received first Realm Hunter story arc (Pursuit of the Silver Dirk and Trail of the Elder Gods) are brought together in a single volume. Bear Waters, a simple bounty hunter from the magic-laden city of Northport, discovers the existence of parallel worlds as he pursues the Silver Dirk, a mad cultist bent on bringing the Elder Gods back to not only his world, but also at least four others. All in one volume, this volume includes the modern "police procedural" investigations of World One, the magical adventures of World Two, the two-fisted pulp action of World Three, the prehistoric adventures of World Four, and the mysterious World Zero, as well as the Lovecraft-inspired horrors that Bear and his friends must battle. Throughout his travels, Bear gathers an ever-growing collection of new friends and allies, and battles a more varied collection of enemies than he'd ever imagined.

Central to the evolution of American music is the legacy of Charles Ives. This grand-scale reference work provides details surrounding the multifarious responses to the achievement of this singular businessman/musician for more than a century. Performances, recordings, journalistic reports, reviews, and scholarly studies of all kinds as well as assorted Ivesiana in the form of literature, art, film, dance, and other expressions of homage are included. Many of the entries are amplified with contextual information or carefully selected excerpts. Professor Burk has been an enthusiastic connoisseur of Ives's music and a thoughtful student of the Ives literature for many years; his systematic presentation results in much more than a glorified work list or another ambitious bibliography.
