In this rip-roaring space opera, a ragtag band of explorers are out to make the biggest score in the galaxy. On this space jump, no one is who they seem . . . Captain Hammond Roystan is a simple cargo runner who has stumbled across the find of a lifetime: the Hassim, a disabled exploration ship--and its valuable record of unexplored worlds. His junior engineer, Josune Arriola, said her last assignment was in the uncharted rim. But she is decked out in high-level bioware that belies her humble backstory. A renowned body-modification artist, Nika Rik Terri has run afoul of clients who will not take no for an answer. She has to flee off-world, and she is dragging along a rookie modder, who seems all too experienced in weapons and war . . . Together this mismatched crew will end up on one ship, hurtling through the lawless reaches of deep space with Roystan at the helm. Trailed by nefarious company men, they will race to find the most famous lost world of all--and riches beyond their wildest dreams . . .

The crew of Another Road are back, closer than ever to the biggest score in the galaxy. . . if they can stay a step ahead of the Justice Department agents and Company men tracking them. An engineer with a fondness for weapons. A captain with no memory. An obsessive genemodder who loves to tinker. Meet the crew of Another Road. Josune, Roystan, and Nika have escaped the company thugs trying to kill them. They've gotten a new spaceship to replace The Road (after it was blown up underneath them). And their new ship is armed to the teeth with dangerous weapons, courtesy of Josune. All that's left to do before they head out to find the legendary lode of transurides is to restore Roystan's memory. To do that, they need to collect the genemod machine Nika has ordered. But first, they have to shake off the Justice Department agent and the Companies tracking them. It should be easy. They've done it before. What could possibly go wrong?

In the “excellent” sequel to The Zero Stone, Murdoc Jern searches for the source of the mysterious gem that leaves violence in its wake (Kirkus Reviews). The Zero Stone is the greatest treasure—and the greatest curse. It holds all the power of the universe, and such power is worth killing for. The seemingly dull, lifeless rock is Murdoc Jern’s sole inheritance from his father, who himself was murdered over the stone. But to uncover its power, he first has to figure out the secret of its origins. With no choice but to run for life and limb while trying to solve the mystery of the Zero Stone, Murdoc and his feline mutant companion, Eet, travel across the galaxy—business class, of course—hopping from world to world and bad situation to worse in their quest. All they have to do now is duck the lethally unforgiving Thieves Guild, avoid the never-give-up law enforcement corps of the Patrol, and somehow manage to stay alive if they want to unleash the most awesome power the universe has ever seen . . . Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton’s “version of hallucinatory and telepathic events is excellent and the . . . duo is inspired.” Along with The Zero Stone, these novels are “two of the author’s best” (Kirkus Reviews).

Every night, a pageant of Greek mythology circles overhead. Perseus flies to the rescue of Andromeda, Orion faces the charge of the snorting Bull, and the ship of the Argonauts sails in search of the Golden Fleece. Constellations are the invention of the human imagination, not of nature. They are an expression of the human desire to impress its own order upon the apparent chaos of the night sky. Modern science tells us that these twinkling points of light are glowing balls of gas, but the ancient Greeks, to whom we owe many of our constellations, knew nothing of this. Ian Ridpath, well-known astronomy writer and broadcaster, has been intrigued by the myths of the stars for many years. Star Tales is the first modern guide to combine all the fascinating myths in one book, illustrated with the beautiful and evocative engravings from two of the leading star atlases: Johann Bode's Uranographia of 1801 and John Flamsteed's Atlas Ceolestis of 1729. This is an excellent reference and the perfect gift for the armchair astronomer and those interested in classical mythology alike.

A dazzling collection of essays on how the best poems work, from the master poet and essayist “Poetry,” Jane Hirshfield has said, “is language that foments revolutions of being.” In ten eloquent and highly original explorations, she unfolds and explores some of the ways this is done—by the inclusion of hiddenness, paradox, and surprise; by a perennial awareness of the place of uncertainty in our lives; by language’s own acts of discovery; by the powers of image, statement, music, and feeling to enlarge in every direction. The lucid understandings presented here are gripping and transformative in themselves. Investigating the power of poetry to move and change us becomes in these pages an equal investigation into the inhabitance and navigation of our human lives. Closely reading poems by Dickinson, Bashō, Szymborska, Cavafy, Heaney, Bishop, and Komunyakaa, among many others, Hirshfield reveals how poetry’s world-making takes place: word by charged word. By expanding what is imaginable and sayable, Hirshfield proposes, poems expand what is possible. Ten Windows restores us at every turn to a more precise, sensuous, and deepened experience of our shared humanity and of the seemingly limitless means by which that knowledge is both summoned and forged.

The great debate is over. The human race has rejected the idea of retreating to Earth and that the Broa will continue to overlook them—at least for a few more generations. Instead, the World Parliament, by a 60-40 vote, has decided to throw the dice and go for a win. Brave words echo in Parliament Hall as members declare a victory inevitable. While plans for war mount on Earth, Mark and Lisa Rykand face grave danger as spies in enemy territory. The Broa have begun to scrutinize these strange two-legged interlopers and question their intentions. It’s only a matter of time before their identities are revealed. But the Rykands’ mission is key to securing a victory. With the number of forces favoring the enemy by roughly a million to one, Earth will need all the help they can get...

Matthew Young is a new beat poet, and also a Doors fan, the second name Young --- in this case is correct --- because both the poetry and the poet are! I especially dug: 'Brendan Behans' Glass', 'Diet Christ', 'Dreaming Like A Symphony' and 'Dublin Ramblings'; amongst the 247 pages of Matthew's first poetry works in his new book: BEATING THE LILIES. Meeting Matt a couple of years ago on a poetry reading trip with other Doors fans in that low-lit Rue de la Roquette passage, near my fave Parisian hotel the Royal Bastille --- we hung like Beats and talked poetry and Doors stuff; and hung with a chick called Kat who was into Hemingway: all outside in the cool breeze of a July night. This cat is a traveller and a seeker, and what comes through on these works of his, is a man in touch with the true spirit of Beat! ... like all good poetry you'll have to read some of these a few times over --- to lean on all the angles...

Murdoc Jern's father, an interstellar gem trader, was murdered by outlaw competitors and left behind an odd ring, large enough to fit over the finger of a space suit. With his companion Eet, a strange feline mutant with phenomenal mental powers, he soon discovered that the stone in the ring was actually a Zero Stone¾an alien device left behind by an ancient vanished race¾and it was the key to powers beyond human imagination. Murdoc and Eet had to solve the secret of the Zero Stone, and very quickly, because very greedy and dangerous people wanted that ring, and wouldn't hesitate at a second murder to obtain it.
