Natural catastrophes and imminent civil war early in the 21st Century destroyed New Zealand to the point where its only hope of survival lay in annexation by the USA.

A billionaire saved her country by donating all her wealth to the nation, by founding a political party and by introducing drastic, innovative changes which included dispossession of all landowners, a generous immigration policy, a basic income for all, making all work voluntary, a fair justice system and freedom of choice in education.

Her ideas worked and within a few years New Zealand became prosperous, with no ethnic or racial problems.
Radio Vienna sent one of its reporters, Nora Zandler to investigate the New Zealand experience and discover any cracks in paradise.
"Funny, totally serious, philosophy too good to be true, drawing on thoughts from Genesis, Marx, Maori beliefs and Steiner, this 90-pager romps through a fantasy. For all its quirkiness this is a genuinely serious, thought-provoking gem. Are things too good ñ is Nirvana possible?"

Crystal Mission by Cornelius van Dorp

Brand: RSVP Publishing

Product Code: 9780958218283

$20.00 Ex Tax: $20.00
Crystal Mission begins with the Greenpeace Antarctic expedition and leads a New Zealand doctor into fantastic territory – the discovery of a planetary electro-magnetic grid, and its connection with ancient foundation points like the Great Pyramid of Giza, a crystal mountain in Arizona, and secret sites in Tibet and New Zealand.

Assisted by Hopi Indian, Mayan, Australian Aboriginal and New Zealand Maori wisdom-keepers, Crystal Mission becomes an exploration into the history of Planet Earth. Ancient healing methods involving crystals and electro-magnetism are rediscovered and put to use, both on a human and a global scale.

Crystal Mission is the story of one New Zealand explorer who voyages into the American New Age consciousness and lived to tell the tale… Cornelius van Dorp, intrigued by the “magical” power of crystals, has written what must be one of the most interesting inside accounts of lunacy, solipsism and yes, “far out” work being done in the New Age south-western community.

We meet an ex-IBM scientist working on medical applications of crystal technology, ex-US naval intelligence operatives sounding the alarm over UFOs, a man who may or may not be a CIA agent with a crystal purportedly snatched from an underwater pyramid in the Bermuda Triangle, and a crew of people whose group therapy consists of channeling ancient Egyptian deities.

2025. Suicide is rampant, people are gasping in the streets, and planes fall from the sky. 

Medicine and technology can reverse the course, but humanity can’t seem to rally. By chance, a young Kiwi chemist stumbles across evidence that suggests that gravity and the air, indeed consciousness itself, are responding to a dispiriting force. But who – or what – is directing this energy? And can the mystery be solved before humanity sinks into the abyss? 
“Cognitively estranging, richly imagined, and splendidly paranoid, its vision of ‘contagious hegemonic despair’ works its way into the mind and settles there.” 
Dr Dougal McNeill, Victoria University of Wellington

A dream, and a thousand miles away is their only way home.

“Some people can’t see certain things the world makes. It gets in them like a thorn and turns in a bad way. Cuts them up from inside, and gets a bleed going. And that makes a person weak. And in a world like this, kid, that’s enough to get you killed.”
Waking in a pipe in a silent forest, unable to remember how he got there or where he came from, Simon finds himself walking a rusting railway track with a mysterious stranger who cannot even remember his own name. Abandoned factories and eerie mannequins dot their path, falling stars lighting the night sky and searing holes through the earth to reveal a maze of pipes beneath. A dream, and a thousand miles away is their only way home. But they are not alone on this factory world, and soon realise that they are fighting for their lives . . .

What happens when we die?

This has been the third question on mankind’s FAQ list since the dawn of time (numbers one and two being: Is this edible? and Excuse me, would you care to breed?). I know what happens. Believe me, I’d rather not. But I do. There is a lighthouse, and it guides our souls along the narrow path to being reborn as humans. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, as my undead granddad and the Tibetan special mission monk in my kitchen have kindly told me, there’s a problem with the lighthouse. And if the world is to be saved, someone needs to fix it. Which is where I come in: George Larson, eighteen years old. Who could possibly be better suited to save the world? Well, almost anyone. Especially as being a teenage guy is nothing at all about question three but all about questions one and two. And really, that’s complicated enough as it is.

Winner of the 2013 Sir Julius Vogel Award for best youth novel.

The Seed by Florence Kiss

Product Code: 9780958218252

The Seed is the first and only English edition of Florence Kiss’s prize-winning French novel ‘Seuls’.


When the lights go out and the world ceases to exist after thermonuclear war – when all order breaks down and the last remnants of the human race mutate into unrecognisable creatures, half-man, half-beast – what, if anything, can survive?

In the flick of an eye while the southern hemisphere sleeps and the northern half is watching ‘One Man Too Many’, the favourite TV show on the planet, the Earth becomes an eternal reminder of Man’s sin. Its vanished cities, evaporated seas and irradiated fauna and flora cover the petrified surface with a carpet of ashes. Living and material humanity melt into the ground that once sheltered life.

What will be the meaning of life in this emptiness, in a world that has retrieved its primal nudity, its original darkness? A world like the handful of survivors left – desolate at still being alive without love, beauty, food or drink to sustain them… until one survivor unearths the seed.

In this unique, prize-winning novel for the 21st Century, Florence Kiss issues an astonishing wake-up call which nevertheless leaves space for hope.
