Summary: Step through a portal in time - and steal a piece of history! Iria and Madge, witches extraordinaire, have summoned Joshua Norton I, self-declared Emperor of the United States, back from the nineteenth century to help them save the city of San Francisco from a demon of greed. Mammon, their infernal adversary, is running a real estate scam to end all real estate scams, and he's got his own helping hand from the city's past: Etta Place, famous in her day as the accomplice of Butch Cassidy and partner of the Sundance Kid. As Norton dodges mafia foot soldiers alongside another of San Francisco's larger-than-life figures from yesteryear on the fog-shrouded streets of Chinatown long ago, Iria and Madge find themselves face to face with Mammon and Etta in modern day - and trapped in very different timelines. It'll take all their ingenuity, bravery, and prowess to fix time itself, steal the prize, and get these three heroes back together!

Summary: The Quasiverse: A land that’s a combination of Oz, Wonderland, Discworld, and general surreality, where anything can happen and often does; a land of snow globe mines and french fries plantations; a land where bossy birds can have teeth and locks can be very particular about how you stick a key in them; a land where you never know what color the sky will be when you wake up in the morning and where murder victims can be only randomly dead. Martia Rosenthal is escaping from a bad love affair, and enlists for a diplomatic assignment in the Quasiverse. With the combination of her wealth and the position of sub-legate, she’s assured it will be a quiet post. But she reckons without the vagaries of this bizarre world, where the unusual nature of her friends, as well as her enemies, threatens to end her sanity, if not her very life. Quiet Post is an absurdist comedy with surprises around every turn and smiles never far from your lips.

Summary:

New York: two years after the Third World War. Humanity is rebuilding its cities brick by brick; the damage done to the people, however, is a lot harder to repair.
Dan Hardacre is one of those people. An aspiring stage actor and experienced draft-dodger, Dan struggles to find his place within the Utopic rebuild of New York City. When he’s not caught up with the duties of work, Dan lives a quiet life in mourning for his mother, Dyani, who went missing when he was a teenager.
One night, Dan experiences a vivid, terrifying nightmare that puts him right on the front lines of the war for which he dodged the draft; it ends with him facing Death itself in the form of a metallic, faceless humanoid creature that calls itself the Valkyrie. To investigate the reason behind his haunting experience, Dan seeks out a meeting with his estranged father, who reveals the startling truth about Dan’s dream: it wasn’t a dream.
With this newfound knowledge and the powers it brings, Dan makes it his mission to return to the scene of his nightmare. However, he soon comes to know that confronting the Valkyrie not only endangers him but the war-withstanding world he leaves behind.

Summary: The Mother Dark. The Chained Goddess The Serpent of Judgment   In the space between the Realm of Mortality, the Expanse of the Celestial Choir, and the Void, Shi Coils around Hir throne. Hir opelecant gaze looks not to the singing stars nor the great black ocean of lucious agony. Instead, they look to the chains that bind the Goddess to this place.   They were at first chains of sadism and dark intent. Every link forged by the Void to keep her from the love of Hir children in Mortality. Yet as she undulated within their grasp, her own sensual mind learned their construction. Now Shi is no longer a Goddess in chains, but a Goddess of chains.   Forging new links in secret, Shi imbues them with the stories of Hir many children. Hir mystical eyes look into the glowing loop of eldritch metal. The patterns of silver-blue that formed as it cooled told the story of a love triangle that defies the boundaries of normality.   A deathly howl echoes into the night, a young girl is visited in her dreams by the wolf's immortal spirit. He teaches her of his kind, the Uadeans. As she grows up, the wolf becomes more handsome to her own maturing sentiments, and she falls in love.   Yet this love was not meant for the wolf, but for his mate.   Now, years after, Jenova stands at the edge of life and death. Having earned her right to stand with the others of the pack, the woman prepares herself for the Heartsblood Rite. She must challenge one of these lycanthropic beings to ritual combat. The prize is the Heart of an Uadean and all the power that comes with it.   Jenova faces her opponent in the ritual circle, the lust of the crowd overwhelming her human senses. She has not intention of killing tonight. The heart offered as the prize is that of the she-wolf Jenova had been chosen to love...   And to bear the children she cannot.

Summary: It is Ancient Greece, when heroes were forever 'accidentally' killing their own fathers and marrying their own mothers. So what's a young prince supposed to do when he falls in love with the wrong woman? Dare he trust his heart or will the Fates interfere? King Oeneus of Calydon has just been given the secret of wine by the god Dionysus. Unable to hold his liquor, vomit-bespattered Oeneus drunkenly forgets to honor the goddess Artemis at the harvest festival. Oh dear, bad mistake. These gods are larger than life, and bigger in emotions too. In revenge for this insult, the angry, man-hating Artemis sends a gigantic and crazed wild boar to ravage the land. With its burning breath and tusks longer than a brave man’s spear, nothing can stop this monstrous beast. What can the befuddled King Oeneus do to save his kingdom? Send out a message to the greatest heroes of the age, that's what. Soon, a party of mighty mythical heroes, led by Oeneus's son, Prince Meleager, is on the trail of the fearsome monster - but one of these heroes is a heroine! Atalanta the Indomitable is a huntress to match Artemis herself, and quickly wins the heart of Meleager. Will one of the men make the kill, or will they be humiliated when the prize goes to a woman? Will Prince Meleager woo and win Atalanta, or will the cruel gods intervene as usual? Who will die and who will survive in this tale of great loves and even greater lusts in the ancient world? A rip-roaring tale of jealousy, foul play, a family at war with itself, and a battle of the sexes - all in Weichsel's unique, no-holds-barred, ribald style.
