COLLINS Andrew 
The Seventh Sword
Psychic Quest for King Arthur's Sword

"In 1979 the author and a psychic colleague went to a secluded pool in the heart of England. Under the cover of darkness they unearthed a sword bearing Mary Queen of Scot's personal monogram and an inscription proclaiming Meonia fore Marye. Meonia; the name given to a green jewel believed to be the Philosophers Stone of the alchemists. Soon after a green jewel was discovered inside a seventeenth-century brass casket....a twelve year quest of supernatural drama, spectral visitations and confrontations with sinister forces. One by one five further swords, all identical to the first , surfaced under mysterious circumstances....the search is on to uncover their maker, their purpose, their ultimate use, and, of course the seventh and final Sword of Meonia". In 1989 the author and a colleague located and unearthed a sword which they believed had been made from a sword belonging to King Arthur. When he appeared on television with his discovery, five other people came forward who, as a result of dreams or visions, had found other swords belonging to the set of seven. According to legend, when the seven swords are brought together there will be a last battle with the forces of evil. At the end of the 19th century a group of Masons supposedly tried to bring the swords together but were defeated by an ancient occult conspiracy. The Masons dispersed and buried the swords in various places around the country. Now the author invites the reader to help him with the renewed quest for the seventh sword of destiny.

Crusoes of Sunday Island
Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand

Tom Bell was a born pioneer who, after fighting in the Maori wars of the sixties decided that the one thing he wanted more than anything else was to find an uninhabited Pacific Island, take his wife and young children there, and open it up as a trading station.
In 1878 they came eventually to Sunday Island six hundred miles north of Auckland.
This is a desert island story. It has elements of both Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson, but has the added interest of being absolutely true.
Sunday Island is a tiny fertile volcanic island which was haunted by ill-luck. From the start the family had to live the life of desert islanders.
They had bought food supplies from the captain of the trading schooner from which they landed, but when they began to unpack the cases of food they found all of it rotten.
They had been deserted as well as cheated, for the schooner never returned and it was nearly another year before they saw anyone.
Tom and Frederica Bell raised a family of ten in utter isolation and after years of effort and setbacks they made an Eden of their island only to lose it in the end.
The story was told to the author by one of Tom Bell's daughters who was nine years old when the family landed on the island.

The mayor of Brentwood dedicates a new lakeside playground, and the Allen clan were there to enjoy the event and cover it for the Advance newspaper.
On their way home, Sandy and Ken opt for a short cut, and rescue Ralph Conner from the wreck of his truck. However, this last incident in a string of bad luck, could cause the Conner Brother Trucking Company to lose its insurance coverage, and end of their business. It's up to Ken and Sandy to prove a conspiracy is involved.
Despite repeated attempts to explain the circumstances surrounding Ralph's crash, nothing concrete is achieved.
When Mr. Randolph Dutton enters and offers to buy out the company, suspicions are raised. When the name of James Tolliver becomes involved, the boys find out from Granger that the mob may be in on the action.
Further investigations at the lake on the outskirts of Brentwood, reveal the whole sordid plot. Ken and Sandy must escape a gas filled tunnel and a final battle with the forces arrayed against them, before successfully unraveling the Clue of the Phantom Car.
