Jerry Cornelius is an English assassin, physicist, rock star, and messiah to the Age of Science. Cornelius's adventures have been credited with inspiring dozens of writers and artists to rethink the genre of science fiction.

Here are a selection of shorter novels and novellas, ranging across time and space...
