The portable doorl by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
Starting a new job is always traumatic: meeting your colleagues, forgetting their names, your boss's name and, for an encore, your own name. This is then traditionally followed - round about lunchtime - by breaking the photocopier and hiding in the toilet whilst weeping hysterically. But what if your new employer was not the simpler humdrum paper-shuffling outfit you supposed it to be? What if it was an elaborate front for the Dark Forces of Oddness? A place in which the photocopier fought back and the staplers were possessed by vengeful spirits? For Paul Carpenter - new employee of J.W. Wells & Co - it is fast becoming clear that his new company is hiding a vast and quite possibly sinister conspiracy. Not that Paul cares much - he's become obsessed with wooing the enigmatic Sophie, a bizarre agular woman with all the sexual appeal of a hole-punch

In the bleak snowbound landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fens, a car is winched from a frozen river. Inside, locked in a block of ice, is a man's mutilated body.

Local reporter Philip Dryden knows he's on to a great story when forensic evidence links both victims to one terrifying event in 1966. But the investigation also offers the key to a very personal mystery

In your dreams by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 31 libraries worldwide
Ever been offered a promotion that seems too good to be true? You know - the sort they'd be insane to be offering to someone like you. The kind where you snap their arm off to accept, then wonder why all your long-serving colleagues look secretly relieved, as if they've been let off some strange and unpleasant hook. It's the kind of trick that deeply sinister companies like H.W. Wells & Co pull all the time. Especially with employees who are too busy mooning over the office intern to think about what they're getting into. And that's why, right about now, Paul Carpenter is wishing he'd paid much less attention to the gorgeous Melze, and rather more to a little bit of job description small-print referring to "pest" control

Blonde bombshell by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
The third planet out from the star was blue, with green splodges. Dirt. Oh, the bomb thought. And then its courage, determination and nobility-of-spirit subroutines cut in, overriding everything else, adrenalizing its command functions and bypassing its cyberphrenetic nodes. Here goes, said the bomb to itself. Calibrate navigational pod. Engage primary thrusters. Ready auxiliary drive. It knew, in that moment, that its own doom was near; because it was giving itself orders, and it wasn't putting in any 'the's. That was what you did, apparently, when the moment came. You could also turn on a flashing red beacon and a siren, but mercifully these were optional. Oh #//+! thought the bomb, and surged on towards Dirt like an avenging angel
The outsorcerer's apprentice by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
A happy workforce is a productive workforce. At the moment, the Wizard's employees are neither. The goblins are upset with their working conditions, the dragonslayer has thrown a hissy fit over his medical insurance (or lack thereof) and everyone is upset about the terrible canteen coffee. Yet the Wizard hasn't got time to worry about revolution in the workplace - he's about to see his brilliant business plan (based on entrepreneurial flair and involving one or two parallel worlds) disrupted by a clueless young man. Side effects may include a huge hole in the fabric of reality. This is almost certainly going to be a bad day at the office
