On the riskiest mission of his career, Colonel Nicoli Romanof has allowed his life essence to be separated from his physical form in order to draw the Harvesters - a deadly race of aliens - into a trap. And they've taken the bait - his lifeless body. Now with his life essence merged into his ship's computer, Nicoli must follow the tracking beacon embedded in his body to the Harvesters' home planet. Once there, he will reunite with his body and destroy the entire race of aliens - or die trying. Hunted and on the run, galactic smuggler Angel Torrence steals a ship to escape capture, not realizing until too late that the ship's computer, not she, is in control. Its disembodied voice - sounding arrogant and oddly male - blares out of the Icarus' control panel, ordering her to set a course for the most perilous planet in the known universe. Angel has no choice but to go along with the Colonel's plans - and wait for an opportunity to escape. But she never expected the colonel's physique to be so magnificent or his heart to be so courageous. For the first time in her life, she might be falling in love. Too bad he thinks she's a boy. She's going to tell him the truth - just as soon as she retrieves his body from the Harvesters, restore his life essence and helps him complete his mission. What can go wrong?

The first major survey to reveal the ways in which Classical mythology has inspired art throughout the last 2,500 years From the films of Woody Allen and the Coen Brothers to Margaret Atwood's books and Arcade Fire's songs, Classical Greek and Roman myths continue to be a source of cultural inspiration. The struggles of heroes, both triumphant and tragic, with gods, monsters, and fate, exert a particular grip on our imagination. Visual artists have long expressed and reworked these foundational stories. This is the first book to unite myth-inspired artworks by ancient, modern, and contemporary artists, from Botticelli and Caravaggio to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.

Curtis Roosevelt was three when he and his sister, Eleanor, arrived at the White House soon after their grandfather's inauguration. The country's “First Grandchildren,” a pint-sized double act, they were known to the media as “Sistie and Buzzie.” In this rich memoir, Roosevelt brings us into “the goldfish bowl,” as his family called it—that glare of public scrutiny to which all presidential households must submit. He recounts his misadventures as a hapless kid in an unforgivably formal setting and describes his role as a tiny planet circling the dual suns of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Blending self-abasement, humor, awe and affection, Too Close to the Sun is an intimate portrait of two of the most influential and inspirational figures in modern American history—and a thoughtful exploration of the emotional impact of growing up in their irresistible aura.

Flying Close to the Sun is the stunning memoir of a white middle-class girl from Connecticut who became a member of the Weather Underground, one of the most notorious groups of the 1960s. Cathy Wilkerson, who famously escaped the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, here wrestles with the legacy of the movement, at times finding contradictions that many others have avoided: the absence of women’s voices then, and in the retelling; the incompetence and the egos; the hundreds of bombs detonated in protest which caused little loss of life but which were also ineffective in fomenting revolution. In searching for new paradigms for change, Wilkerson asserts with brave humanity and confessional honesty an assessment of her past—of those heady, iconic times—and somehow finds hope and faith in a world that at times seems to offer neither.
