Space: 1889 Tales From the Ether 5 Adventures Victorian Sci Fi GDW 1901 1989 CUj-S

Regular price $11.99

Description: An action-filled tour of the solar system! Five separate adventures with danger, intrigue, and a chance to serve the Crown.

  • The Burning Desert. An old school chum's appeal takes you to Mercury's Twilight Zone, sandwiched between burning deserts and icy glaciers. The bright side holds the key to a sinister scientist's plot for domination of the world metals market.
  • Drums Along the Border. Savage raids against the native settlements along the outer border of the German colonial enclave take you to Venus. The Germans blame the British. You must disprove this slander and find the real culprit, a daunting task indeed on a world where simple survival in the bush is a full-time occupation.
  • River of Life. Cyrus Grant, with whom you previously journeyed to Luna, has disappeared deep within the Moon while searching for the origin of a mysterious glowing medallion. Now you must retrace his pathway along a subterranean river. But what you will find at the end of the river may upset the very foundations of your understanding of the Solar System.
  • Anarchy in the Ether. High above the Earth is Harbinger, Her Majesty's Orbital Heliograph Station, a vital link in the world-spanning British Empire. Now the French anarchist Ravachol has escaped and plots the station's destruction. With only hours remaining, it will take all of your skill and daring to thwart this monstrous scheme.
  • Ausonian Stalkler. The sewers of the Martian city-states are complete ecosystems unto themselves, breaking down the wastes of the city into gasses (for heating and light) or organic fertilizers. So efficient is this ecosystem (at breaking down organic material) that it is lethal to any Martian. When a murderous beast begins a reign of terror and then takes refuge in the sewers, it is obvious that the beast is not of Martian origin. It is also clear that only adventurers not of Martian origin could follow it into the sewers and stop it.
