The Ring Of Charon: The First Book Of The Hunted Earth., Allen,  Roger MacBride
57 Allen, Roger MacBrideThe Ring Of Charon: The First Book Of The Hunted Earth. 01294
Orbit: London. 1991.
First trade hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel, the sequel was THE SHATTERED SPHERE (1993). First published as a Tor paperback original in 1990.

''...potentially more interesting than any of these titles is the Hunted Earth sequence, comprising THE RING OF CHARON (1990) and The Shattered Sphere (1993). After the passing of a beam of phased gravity-waves - a new human invention - has awakened a long dormant semi-autonomous being embedded deep within the Moon, the Earth is shunted via Wormhole to a new solar system dominated by a multifaceted culture occupying a Dyson Sphere. The remnants of humanity must work out - over the course of the second volume - where Earth is while countering, or coming to terms with, the attempted demolition of the solar system to make a new sphere. Although the human cultures described in the first volume are unimaginatively presented, the exuberance of Allen's large-scale plotting (and thinking) made Hunted Earth one of the touchstone galactic epics of the early 1990s, though it did not prefigure the more daunting complexities of work by writers like Dan Simmons. Indeed, some sense that Allen had lost some interest in the more challenging implications of the Space Opera form he had honourably contributed to may be seen in a succession of Ties [see Checklist below] which occupied much of his time in the 1990s'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''You're custom-built, Charlie, a hero for our time...''' Charlie Monk is the ultimate superhero. He has no conscience. He has no fear. But he also has no memory. Dr Susan Flemyng has found a way to give memory back. In a world where even virtual reality is controlled, that is the most dangerous knowledge of all.

''is set in an alternate world where Mmagic works through the discovery and application of pragmatic laws. The cast (one of whom enters the debate in the Phoenix Tavern) is again populous and colourfully conceived, and includes afreets, various familiars and demons (one of whom is an alternate version of Adolf Hitler); the male protagonist is a werewolf and his female counterpart a virgin witch. Again the war is between Law and Chaos; here, as in A Midsummer Tempest, the ending is not grim'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

Vampire novel.

''there have never been vampires, only tortured human beings. This is the provocative premise of this chilling novel in which Anscombe creates the memoirs of Laszlo, Count Dracula -- aristocrat, doctor, & helpless killer of young women. Set in the 19th century, Laszlo's story begins at medical school in Paris with a deadly attraction to a mental patient that leads him away from aristocratic society into the city's dark underworld. Laszlo returns to Transylvania to accede his dead brother's title. There he cultivates his image as a saintly doctor & trusted nationalist agent by day -- while the savage stalks the night with increasing cunning & ferocity. Evil, madness & sexuality!''
