Having narrowly escaped death in Victorian England, Jherek Carnelian is back in his own time. But without his love, Amelia Underwood. His obsession with her has not abated but Brannart Morphail refuses to lend him another time machine and he is stranded...

The End of All Songs - Ace Books

Marooned by a faulty time-machine back at the Earth's beginning, Jherek Carnelian and Amelia Underwood seem set at last to consummate their love in a Palaeozoic Eden. Until, rescued by passing time-travellers, they are whisked once more to the End of Time - and a dying universe.

Facing oblivion with them are the relentless Inspector Springer and his band of Victorian constables, still determined to apprehend all suspects; the Lat, eternal juvenile delinquents, blaspheming, raping and pillaging to the last; Mr Underwood, firmly convinced he has been kidnapped to Hell; and the decadent, pleasure-seeking inhabitants of the End of Time. including the ever-energetic, Machiavellian Lord Jagged, the master-magician who, is an dazzling cosmic finale, reveals all...

This is the way to outsmart the apocalypse...

Jherek Carnelian, the Hero at the End of Time, and his lady love, Amelia Underwood, have unexpectedly travelled to the dawn of the Palaeozoic Era, where they enjoy Lower Devonian tea with a company of aliens and the Guild of Temporal Adventurers. Scotland Yard's Inspector Springer is hot on their trail, however, so it's back to the End of Time - where doom draws near. If only they could stop the final cataclysm! Or, at least, ignore it...

(1977)

The Transformation of Miss Mavis Ming A Messiah at the End of Time

At last! A self-proclaimed Saviour has arrived at the End of Time, home of the deliciously decadent and frightfully bored. Unfortunately, the last thing they need is a messiah. Especially one like the Fireclown - who offers such unlikely gifts as Madness, Pain, and Doom. Still he does provide a welcome touch of amusement and dare we say, conflict to the final days of man. Indeed, that impregnable spinster, Miss Mavis Ming, is more than a little charmed by his attention... despite the destruction he might wreak on one and all! Such is the way of love...
