<i><b>"I read it at a sitting and couldn't put it down."</b> - Tom Holt</i><br /><br /><i>Hal Spacejock Omnibus One</i> contains three full-length novels <i>plus</i> a bonus short story.<br /><br /><h2>Here's what you get:</h2><br /><i><b>A Robot Named Clunk</b> (Hal Spacejock Book 1)</i><br />Clunk, a clapped-out robot, is convinced he's about to be junked. Instead, his penny-pinching boss is sending him off to be refurbished. Being old and wise, Clunk <i>knows</i> there's a catch, but at first it doesn't seem too bad. He just has to help a freelancer pick up some cargo.<br />Unfortunately, Hal Spacejock - the freelancer - is obstinate, over-confident, and woefully under-skilled, and he's never going to let a lowly robot fly his precious ship.<br />Is there any chance this pair of misfits can lift off, collect the cargo and deliver it in one piece? Or will they fly straight into the nearest star, still bickering and fighting over the controls?<br /><br /><i><b>Second Course</b> (Hal Spacejock Book 2)</i><br />Hal Spacejock’s cargo business is going so well he’s considering getting into passengers ... especially the beautiful and mysterious Sonya Polarov. Clunk's certain she's up to something, but as usual Hal won't listen to a word he says ...<br />Meanwhile, Rex Curtis runs the galaxy’s biggest freight company, and he’s sick of independent pilots stealing his cargo jobs. He’s determined to make a statement by destroying the biggest nuisance of them all: Hal Spacejock.<br /><br /><i><b>Just Desserts</b> (Hal Spacejock Book 3)</i><br />Hal's new-fangled, bargain-bin stasis generator has just failed, exactly as Clunk predicted, and now their valuable cargo of fresh food is in danger of rotting away. They leave their ship and head off to find replacement parts, which is a real shame, because a secret agent wants Hal's ship for an urgent mission ... with or without his permission.<br /><br /><i><b>Visit</b> (A Hal Spacejock short story)</i><br />Hal returns from a shopping trip and finds Clunk in a right old state. Break out the crayons and colouring sheets ... they're booked in for a school visit!<br /><br /><h2>About the Hal Spacejock series</h2><br />Set in the distant future, where humanity spans the galaxy and robots are second-class citizens, the Hal Spacejock series will strike a chord with fans of <i>Red Dwarf</i> and <i>Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy</i>, while forging its own off-beat path through the cosmos.<br /><br />There are currently eight novels in the Hal Spacejock series, as well as the Harriet Walsh and Hal Junior spin-offs (three novels each.) Clunk the robot also features in Simon's brand new fantasy series, beginning with <i>A Portion of Dragon and Chips</i>.<br /><br /><i>Omnibus Two</i>, containing Hal Spacejock books 4-6, is also available.<br /><br /><h2>Reviews</h2><br /><i><b>"Riddled with slapstick humour and glib one-liners"</b> - Courier Mail</i><br /><br /><i><b>"Anyone who has ever had a frustrating run-in with a computer, or had to suffer bureaucratic thuggery, or who just wants a great story that will keep you smiling, this book is for you."</b> - /dev/random</i><br /><br /><i><b>"A well-constructed tale with plenty of twists and turns and a good few laughs."</b> amazon review</i><br /><br /><i><b>"All of the Hal Spacejock books are brilliant. Well written and easy to read with excellent story lines."</b> amazon review.</i>

Step into a future, in which advanced technology creates a virtual world, with superior capabilities that allow players to experience real-world sensations. The popularity of the RPG game Fayroll is growing by the day, attracting millions of users to this alternate reality. What is the secret of Fayroll? What makes it so different from other games?<br />Our protagonist, Harriton Nikiforov is an everyman - a binge drinking, tabloid column reporter who has settled for the humdrum of the everyday, with a job that pays the wages, a neurotic girlfriend who gives him migraines and a boss that gives him constant grief. Tasked with a new assignment, Harriton suddenly finds himself ripped away from his normal routine of Moscow society life, to a journalistic quest of sorts that leads him deep into the realm of the Virtual Gaming World of Fayroll. Given explicit orders to write a series of fluff pieces on the game and its developers, Harriton grudgingly accepts the assignment, but soon finds himself enthralled by the virtual fantasy world and its amazing quests, unpredictable challenges, and nearly endless possibilities. Harriton is reincarnated as a warrior named Hagen and becomes a full participant in the fantasy world, plunging into the exciting world full of action, quests, humor, legendary weapons and ancient secrets. He meets faithful and courageous comrades and outwits those who are trying to hunt him.<br />In this world, the thirst for success and vanity of high-level players in pursuit of legendary objects spills into the real world, where high-stakes bets are made on the success of the virtual characters. Harriton, as Hagen, unwittingly enters into the Fayroll world, where events and decisions that he makes in the virtual space starts to affect his own reality. His unpredictable character, perseverance, and excitement attract the attention of powerful gamers and influential Moscow elite with a vested interest in Fayroll’s outcome. It is not long before he realizes that this fantastic world, (created according to the best canons of cult games, Warcraft and Lineage), conceals many dangers. Can he pass all the tests?<br />Fayroll is more than a novel; it’s a brilliant synergy of fantasy fiction and online gaming. It gives the reader the best of both worlds. The first novel of the 13 part epic LitRPG series Fayroll, has captivated Russian readers countrywide and was voted the 2014 new fantasy book of the year. Andrey Vasilyev’s masterpiece ‘More Than a Game’ is now available to the English-speaking World. Join us in this breathtaking narrative that takes both its main character and the reader deep into the heart of the Virtual Gaming Universe and explore the Fantasy Series that has captured the imagination of the Slavic world.

In honor of the ten-year anniversary of<i> The Heroin Diaries</i>, Nikki Sixx’s definitive and bestselling memoir on drug addiction is reissued with exclusive new content. This shocking, gripping, and at times darkly hilarious memoir explores Nikki’s yearlong war with a vicious heroin addiction. Now more than ever, with opioid addiction ravaging our country and rising by twenty percent in the past year alone, Nikki’s story of both his descent into drug-addled decay and subsequent recovery and transition into a rehabilitation advocate are now more relevant than ever.<BR><BR>When Mötley Crüe was at the height of its fame, there wasn’t any drug Nikki Sixx wouldn’t do. He spent days—sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers—in a coke- and heroin-fueled daze.<BR> <BR>The highs were high, and Nikki’s journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions.<BR> <BR>Here, Nikki shares the diary entries—some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre—of those dark times. Joining him are Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Slash, Rick Nielsen, Bob Rock, and a host of ex-managers, ex-lovers, and more.<BR> <BR>Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and surprisingly moving,<i> The Heroin Diaries </i>follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom—and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.
