E W Farnsworth's DarkFire at the Edge of Time brings together twenty-five visionary science fiction stories focusing on events leading up to and following the launch of the Spaceship Arcturus, destined to an epic voyage through space to the edge of the universe and back again. Avatars and AIs mature by programming themselves and acquiring human characteristics as they discover romance, sex, joy and pain. While alluding to works by Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Norbert Wiener, H P Lovecraft and Alan Turing, Farnsworth's brainy stories break new ground. Amongst the twenty-five stories, "The Joys of Rayovision" explores early experimentation in teleportation; "Shell Game" features using DNA for encoding messages in outer space; and numerous other stories postulate the practicality of a neutrino communicator. The reader can read sequentially or delve into this collection in any direction. The variety of perspectives caters for every mood, inclination and intellectual capacity.

There is always a price to pay... So Darius warned her when she accepted a position with his traveling troupe. And gazing mesmerized at the merciless slash of his mouth, the implacable resolve on his face, the soulless emptiness of his black eyes, Tempest was afraid to ask what it was. She had always been different, apart from others. From the moment his arms closed around her, enveloping her in a sorcerer's spell, Darius seemed to understand her unique gifts. But did his kiss offer the love and belonging she sought, or a danger more potent than his own panthers? Somewhere deep inside herself, Tempest realized she knew the answer. She had no choice but to accept the velvet stroke of his tongue, submit to the white-hot heat piercing her skin, welcome an erotic pleasure like no other….
