Halley's Casino - The Adventures of Nebula Yorker
Halley’s Casino is set in 1986. Twenty-six-year-old Nebula Yorker (Neb to his friends) is patiently awaiting the return of Halley’s Comet. He is about to discover that the world is not what it seems.
What happens next is an eye-opening experience for young Neb that no one on Earth can imagine. It can only be explained by watching old Star Trek reruns, while eating cheese sandwiches and drinking hot chocolate. From androids with attitude to a vast assortment of alien beings and historic individuals, with a touch of time travel from ancient Babylon to 1757 London and back to Rome of 12 BCE, Neb soon learns that his past, present and future have always been in the stars above.
It’s a rock and roll ride chock full of chaos, a formidable nemesis, drama, satire, humour, death and new beginnings, with revelations that Neb never saw coming.
Even John Lennon is amused! And that’s only the beginning of what is to come.
Marine - Halley's Casino II
Nebula Yorker (“Neb” to his friends) finds himself on the water planet of Marine in a race to recover a long lost Triopelian Star Chart he previously never knew existed.
Along the way, Neb encounters new friends and a villainous brother and sister team bent on doing whatever they must to get their hands on the star chart first – including mayhem and murder.
One cocky android, one imbibed professor, one universal(ly) renowned scientist and one ice-breathing sassy Water Dragon make Neb wonder whether the past three years travelling with Halley’s Casino was just a peaceful lull?
Who will find the star chart first?
What are the implications if Neb doesn’t?
And what does a Water Moon have to do with all of this?
John Lennon seems to know…
