Earth Quest by Perry and Brinkley

Brinkley and Perry by: Kathleen Perry and Ginny Brinkley

Imagine what life would be like if our beloved planet were to become uninhabitable, either because of our own failings or from forces beyond our control. Would we have sufficient technology to be able to travel the unfathomable distances in space for years, perhaps thousands of years, in search of a new homeland?

The Enlilliians, remants of an ancient civilization, experienced such a fate. A select few had escaped from their planet before it was incinerated by their ever-expanding sun. These survivors, confined to their giant spaceship, hoped that their search for a new home – and a new food source – would end within a few generations. Their quest seemed hopeless. That is, until they came across a little planet called Earth – and a biologist named Dr. William Lance.

Realm by Gertie Poole

Gertie Poole Before the Dark Ages, creatures of magic lived in harmony with the mortal world. With the introduction of new religions, the magicals were branded as demonic and the persecution began. It was a seller’s market and unicorns, griffins, and dragons were slaughtered for tokens of their powers. Having no other recourse, the members of the magical community met to plan their escape from the genocide taking place. Ancient magic, held in secret by the mighty dragons, enabled them to create a realm of their own, safe from the mortal world, yet keeping a portal open so they could pass through undetected. In their absence, the demonic forces gained a foothold, and the mortal world plunged into its darkest times. But with the onslaught of the Inquisition, the demons too, were persecuted and forced to create their own world, known as the Dark Realm.
