Tale by Mark Helprin.
A magical realist tale about a man and woman in a fantastical
Manhattan we have always wished for but never known. Apparently
Scorsese was interested in this for a long time and it
has gone in and out of option for years. Understandably
Dreams of Leaving
by Rupert Thompson.
A man, a contemporary Candide, living in a small English
village discovers no one from there has ever left. But
he does and goes to a slightly skewed London that is
vaguely familiar and thoroughly magical. But like all
good Candides, he chooses to go home again and that's
where the trouble begins.
by Malcolm Bosse.
After the world ends (with a bang), some of the survivors
walk out of a broken New York in search of whatever
promised land is left, led by Mister Touch himself.
Reminiscent of The Stand but different enough to be
intriguing and very satisfying.
by Charles Maclean.
One of the few books I've ever read that genuinely scared

The Easter House
by David Rhodes.
Combine Psycho with In Cold Blood and the Addams Family
and you have this story. Rhodes wrote three wonderful
books and then disappeared. Both his work and the work

Everything Tom Robbins is not. Funny, profound, visionary,

and everything you ever heard about god but were too
afraid to ask.
Von Bek by Michael
A man who willingly makes a deal with the devil and,
amidst swords and sorcery and the Holy Grail (to mention
a few), shows us how the grand scale should really he
done. Why hasn't Hollywood tuned into Moorcock's channel
Let's Put the
Future Behind Us by Jack Womack.
No one knows what's going on in Russia these days except
Womack, clearly. This book in the right hands could
be turned into A Clockwork Orange.
The Child Garden
by Geoff Ryman.
Because everything is there for a great fantasy film.
Don't change a letter.
