Read full description of the books:
This little-known story begins when over a dozen people awake in coffins. They find themselves in an area made to look like a town--it contains a stocked store, a hotel, a inoperable car & plastic coffins, each containing a passenger from an international flight, each apparently snatched out of midair, since there's no flight wreckage & all seem alive & unharmed. The people slowly gather in the hotel & find themselves able to understand one another, even tho they don't all speak the same language. None of them has an idea what they're doing in this new place & there isn't anything for miles around their little settlement except a seemingly endless expanse of grass.
After weeks of waiting for rescue that never arrives, a few of them explore & discover this mysterious land is also populated by a group of what appear to be medieval people & a group of what seems to be cavemen. That accounts for the human population on the island. The only other creatures around are sinister metal spiders.
This story is as much mystery as it is sf, because these people must figure out how they got to this place, & why they were chosen. But they also have to survive.--Kaduzy (edited)
