Three Tales of Omne / The Elder of Days(2010)
An omnibus of novels by Michael R Collings and Robert Reginald
In the tradition of the old "Ace Doubles" two-in-one books (flip one over to read the second title)--here is the eighth Wildside Double. THREE TALES OF OMNE: A COMPANION TO WORDSMITH, by Michael R. Collings This is Omne, a world enveloped by perpetual clouds, without metals, machines, or technology, whose people harbor the secrets of an unimaginable power for destruction--or redemption. But--before it became Omne, it was Colony, home of a small group of refugees from Earth, struggling to survive on a new planet and understand its rules, unaware of their gradual transformation into something no longer quite human. This is the story of how it all began! THE ELDER OF DAYS: TALES OF THE ELDERS, by Robert Reginald They hide among us, these near-immortals, and they go by names like William Shakespeare and John Donne and Napoleon Bonaparte. They're immune to most diseases, heal rapidly from injury, and age so slowly that their life-spans are encompassed by the passage of millennia. These are The Elders. In "Katydid," Jack must penetrate the mystery of a decaying trolley car and the curious 1920s photo album secreted within. A statistical reporting anomaly for "Eldering," a forgotten town tucked away in the Cumberland Mountains, prompts a dying census worker to investigate. Abused wife Jewel-Rose can only find the "chaud" in the "Boneyard" just outside her small Montana town. Time traveler Pat Wardon is determined upon "Saving Jane Austen"--whether she wants to be saved or not! Great romantic fantasy stories.
