An adventure featuring time-travelling archaeologist Bernice Summerfield, written by James Parsons and Andrew Stirling-Brown.
Money makes the world go round, as can a few too many strong drinks. But when Benny, in a fit of sobriety, agrees to do a pre-Advent favour for Irving Braxiatel, little does she suspect that a bit of corporate schmoozing with a fast food magnate is going to lead her into the biggest spin she’s experienced for a very long time. In a whistle-stop tour of frontier planets, she encounters mysterious burials, guns and swords, legs and claws, lost treasure, mortal combat, conspiracy, stomach-churning posh nosh and a little man called Perkin. Oh, and love and war, again.
A trilogy of novellas featuring time-travelling archaeologist Bernice Summerfield, written by Jonathan Clements, Marc Platt and Pete Kempshall respectively.
Late 2562: Bernice Summerfield is 22 and en route to the ruin of Earth. She’s young, she’s single, she’s just got an MA in archaeology. There’s a life of adventure in front of her. And then she meets the half-human, half-lemur Ivo, whose life she’ll completely knock sideways. Late 2607: Professor Bernice Summerfield is… well she looks nearly 40, but it’s difficult to tell what with all the time travel. She’s on her way to a funeral, and to meet up with people she’s not seen since her 20s. Jason is keen to go with her. Benny never talks about that period of her life – what she did to keep out of the war, where she travelled, how she survived, or who it was broke her heart. She’s run through all time and space to avoid this reunion. But the best-selling author of Down Among The Dead Men must finally uncover her own past.
