Six years after the events described in Christopher A. Gray’s foundational science fiction novel Dark Nights, the terrible quantum constant-based disease NETP has begun taking its toll on the alternate’s population. In Dark Nights 2: Resurrection, the political and corporate forces that move into place to take advantage of uncontrollable circumstances, and the rise of another incredibly powerful global AI set the stage for drama, violence and brutal political plays that can only end in one of two ways: peaceful co-existence or eventual annihilation of everything on both planets. Intelligence Agent Michael Bishop, Senator Doug Lockwood, investigative reporter Kyla Aquino and Professor Norman Stravinsky form the only possible alliance that can hope to thread the intricate and fascinatingly dangerous threats. The twists and turns in Dark Nights 2: Resurrection, the reality of interplanetary political competition, the unrelenting quest for technological superiority and the overarching desire for humankind on both planets to survive against all odds, form the backdrop for a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat from cover to cover.

Many female figures in recent fiction, film, and television embody the Artemis archetype, modeled on the Greco-Roman goddess of the hunt. These characters are often identified as heroines and recognized as powerful and progressive pop icons. Some fit the image of the tough, resourceful female in a science fiction or fantasy setting, while others are more relatable, inhabiting a possible future, a recent past, or a very real present. Examining both iconic and lesser-known works, this collection of new essays analyzes the independent and capable female figure as an ideal representation of women in popular culture.

We prepare for it each evening, and spend half our lives in its embrace, yet night retains its mysteries. In ACQUAINTED WITH THE NIGHT, author and poet Christopher Dewdney takes readers on a fascinating journey through the nocturnal realm. Twelve chapters correspond to the twelve hours of an 'ideal' night, starting at 6pm and ending at 6am, and serve as points of departure for night's central themes; from sunsets, nocturnal animals, bedtime stories, festivals of the night, fireworks, nightclubs, astronomy, sleep and dreams, to the graveyard shift, ladies of the night, the art of night, and endless nights. With boundless curiosity, a lyrical, intimate tone, and an eye for night-time beauties both natural and manmade, Dewdney paints a captivating portrait of the hours of darkness.

With Kydd, Julian Stockwin introduced us to a young wig-maker from Guildford who was kidnapped and pressed into duty with the tempestuous crew of the Duke William battle ship. Now, Thomas Paine Kydd is back -- with a vengeance -- in the latest installment of Stockwin's thrilling naval adventure series. Artemis is the eighteenth-century crack frigate that Kydd and sea-mate Nicholas Renzi are set to sail all the way to the fabled Far East. In this great age of fighting sailing ships, Kydd's voyage promises to be a perilous undertaking. But not even shipwreck, mutiny, or a confrontation with a mighty French frigate manages to thwart Artemis and her crew. It's only when Kydd receives an urgent message from home -- one that threatens to cut short his career and trap him on shore forever -- that Artemis's real journey begins. Filled with mesmerizing suspense and vivid details of Napoleonic-era seafaring, Artemis is classic, page-turning storytelling at its best.

Artemis, Sadeigh, Artie, Homer, and Nelda the Nerd are a group of heartwarming, funny, and surprisingly "real" children. When Artemis turns thirteen, she suddenly discovers that she's a fairy and that her klutzy best friend Sadeigh is a witch. A normal day for Artemis involves watching Sadeigh boil the homemaking teacher's glasses in soup, Artie's ongoing battle with Principal Brown to keep his beloved crossing guard stop sign, and the band teacher's lessons requiring the students to "become" their instruments or pirouette around the band hall. Things take a turn for the worst, however, when Principal Brown's niece, a young witch with a taste for mischief, begins to make trouble for Sadeigh. This is a story about friendship, magic, and the adventures of a unique group of children who solve their problems not through magic but by simply being themselves.

Warrior Rising: Seven Journeys Book 1 By: Ann Shaw The time of the Elfain Warriors is over. Their tales of bravery and their ability to wield the elements are all that remain of the heroes of old. However, there are the Foretellings that tell of the Warrior’s return to defeat a black shadow that threatens to destroy the Kingdom of Albavar. Gildon is a scholar and a wanderer. He believes that the warriors will return, and he thinks that he may have found one of them in Cole, an orphan and an apprentice to a carpenter. Cole may seem normal, but Gildon soon discovers that Cole can wield, and not only that, but he can see the future or past of anyone he touches. Because of his gift, he sees an old enemy of Albavar rise again. Shelrin, the once dark Warlord who ruled over Albavar with cruelty and malice, has broken free of Grimhold prison and is determined to take back the Kingship’s throne. Bearing the weapons of ancient power, Shelrin seems unstoppable. But there is hope. The Elfain Warrior and Seer, Ayden, saw the war that would rise long after he was gone. He ordered seven weapons be hidden throughout the land, so when the time came, the returning warriors would find them and use them to destroy the great darkness that threatens Albavar. Because of his gift, Cole knows where these weapons are. So, with the help of seven companions, Cole sets out to travel across Albavar to find the weapons and fight the darkness that Shelrin is causing. As the first book in the Seven Journeys series, Warrior Rising will thrill readers and show that even those who have gone before us still hold a great strength which is passed to the current generation.
