  • The Three Faces of Helena was originally planned to be a collection of three interlinked novellas done by three different writers: Iain McLaughlin, a returning Erimem writer, and a first-time author. Creative differences between the first-time author and McLaughlin prevented this three-novella plan from being fulfilled. Mclaughlin retooled The Three Faces of Helena into a novel written solely by himself. [1]
  • Allan Quatermain is an established public domain character from the works of Henry Rider Haggard. First appearing in King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quartermain appeared in a total of 21 stories written by Haggard. The short story White Man's Burden indicates that Quatermain is a fictional character in the world of Doctor Who.
