: Hello all.
: Many moons ago I read a lot of fantasy, I have sort of dropped out of it
: now but want to return to a few reads from long ago.
: Thing is I can't remember the author or the book titles!
: The first was a trilogy about a guy that goes to Scotland looking for his
: friend, it surrounds cairns and eventually he lands up in another world.
: Not very specific I know, but in the other world his friend has kind of
: gone bad with power, the triology follows this guy between this other
: world and his trying to grasp the crapness of the world he knew.
That definitely sounds like a trilogy by Steven Lawhead called The Song of Albion -
The Paradise War, The Silver Hand, and The Endless Knot. Don't know about the other book though.
: The other book I am looking for I am sure is buy the same author but
: is more towards SF. Se tint he future a journalist is knocked out and
: wakes to find himself being offered an assignment to go through a
: wormhole to report on a colony recently set up on the other side.
: He goes in a ship with a pretty woman, a geeky guy and the pilot. When
: they arrive they find that the colony is huge and split up, one in a huge
: glass dome the others across a river. Basically the story runs that the
: journalist investigates and finds that the wormhole pushed them into
: the future and the colony developed into a rather inverted culture,
: which he lands up saving by leaving the dome, crossing the river and
: eventually being picked up in balloons and taken to the 'good' part of
: the colony. I remember the pilot for some reason going ferrel and
: living in the woods haha.
: Anyhow thats all I can remember, I especially want the single book, I
: thought it was called Emporium or something like that but google and
: amazon have no record.
