For seven weeks the Constellation had been plunging through hyperspace with her eight thousand colonists; fleeing like a hunted thing with her communicators silenced and her drives moaning and thundering. Up in the control room, Irene had been told, the needles of the dials danced against the red danger lines day and night.

A ship heading from Earth to Athena, a planet 500 light years away, is suddenly attacked by the Gerns, an alien empire in its expansion phase. People aboard are divided by the invaders into Acceptables and Rejects. The Acceptables would become slave labor for the Gerns on Athena, and the Rejects are forced ashore on the nearest ‘Earth-like’ planet, called Ragnarok. The Gerns say they will return for the Rejects, but the Rejects quickly realise that that isn’t going to happen. Ragnarok is not so ‘Earth-like.’ Its gravity is 1.5 times that of Earth, it is populated by deadly, aggressive creatures and it contains little in the way of usable metal ores. This, combined with a terrible deadly fever that kills in hours, more than decimates the population. The novels follows the stranded humans through several generations as they try to survive there, and their unswerving goal to repay the Gerns for their cruelty.

AFTER TWO CENTURIES.... The sound came swiftly nearer, rising in pitch and swelling in volume. Then it broke through the clouds, tall and black and beautifully deadly—the Gern battle cruiser, come to seek them out and destroy them. Humbolt dropped inside the stockade, exulting. For two hundred years his people had been waiting for the chance to fight the mighty Gern Empire ... ... with bows and arrows against blasters and bombs!

The Prison Boundary

This book explores the idea of the prison boundary, identifying where it is located, which processes and performances help construct and animate it, and who takes part in them. Although the relationship between prison and non-prison has garnered academic interest from various disciplines in the last decade, the cultural performance of the boundary has been largely ignored. This book adds to the field by exploring the complexity of the material and symbolic connections that exist between society and carceral space. Drawing on a range of cultural examples including governmental legislation, penal tourism, prisoner work programmes and art by offenders, Jennifer Turner attends to the everyday, practised manifestations and negotiations of the prison boundary. The book reveals how prisoners actively engage with life outside of prison and how members of the public may cross the boundary to the inside. In doing so, it shows the prison boundary to be a complex patchwork of processes, people and parts. The book will be of great interest to scholars and upper-level students of criminology, carceral geography and cultural studies.

DOOMED! Crushing gravity-thin air-winters of unimaginable cold-searing summers under two suns-a deadly wasteland teeming with monsters and killing fever- That was Ragnarok, the most dreaded planet yet discovered. And Ragnarok was where a thousand untrained Earthmen-and women and children-were brutally marooned by a sadistic enemy.Two hundred died the first night.In the morning, the survivors knew what they must live for-revenge!

Scientific Study from the year 2012 in the subject Law - Philosophy, History and Sociology of Law, grade: excellent (1), University of Vienna, language: English, abstract: The present study presents, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the space of prisons by putting forward elements pertaining to both environmental psychology and law and by discussing the effects that this space has on transforming and shaping the behavior of the inmates. It also examines the negative consequences of some social processes involving personal space, crowding, privacy, as well as the psychological effects of the prisons on the behavior of the convicts and the costs that they have on their rehabilitation. Nonetheless, the study proposes some alternatives and ways of improving the life of the convicts in these environments in order to ensure a better reintegration into the society. Keywords: prison, behavior, psychological effects, criminal reform, rehabilitation, United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, International Convention on Civil and Political Human Rights, European Prison Rules etc.

“The book's mystery is well done with many twists and turns, and it succeeds at keeping the reader guessing.” – Reader She wants to free her mentor from jail. A frame-up keeps him trapped in the system. Can she discover a killer before he disappears forever? Uniform Lieutenant Sylvia Stryker is about to take off on her fourth Moon Unit Cruise. Her family is gone, her planet was blown up, and her mentor, Neptune, is behind bars indefinitely. But when a space pirate is murdered inside the space prison and Neptune is assumed guilty, Sylvia might lose him for more than the duration of his sentence. Forget the stability of her job for Moon Unit Corporation. Losing one more person might leave Sylvia isolated forever. Faced with possibly-corrupt galactic government, a team of questionable freelancers, and the limits of her physical capabilities, she goes all-in to get him out. If she fails, she’ll lose the only connection that gives her hope for the future. Can Sylvia design a successful mission on her own to save the person who taught her everything?

Spiders From Mars Is it a cozy mystery set in space, or an outer space with a cozy mystery? You decide! “Yes, this sounds like many of the cozy mysteries I read a love, but there is a twist to it – Sylvia’s adventures all take place in space. The setting is fun and detailed, but it never takes away from the action.” – Reader “The mystery is a very good cozy set in hypothetical space. It really does remind me of watching the original Star Trek 'Lost in Space/ Battlestar Galactica of my childhood.” – Reader “The description on this book gives you a good idea about the plot but doesn't tell you that the story moved along pleasantly, there were fun references to David Bowie and pop space culture, and all my favorite characters were there doing what they do best, including Pika the sugar addicted alien.” – Reader For readers who like: humorous science fiction, unique cozy mysteries, interstellar stories, outer space fiction, funny adventures, feisty female characters, fashionable mysteries, quirky characters, amateur sleuth, amateur detective, female sleuth, women detective, alien detective, mystery with humor, humorous mystery, mashups, science fiction mystery, rescue adventures Join Diane's newsletter THE WEEKLY DIVA and never miss a new release!

This book advances conceptualisations and empirical understanding of the prison cell. It discusses the complexities of this specific carceral space and addresses its significance in relation to the everyday experiences of incarceration. The collected chapters highlight the array of processes and practices that shape carceral life, adding the cell to a rich area of discussion in penal scholarship, criminology, anthropology, sociology and carceral geography. The chapters highlight key aspects such as penal philosophies, power relationships, sensory and emotional engagements with place to highlight the breadth and depth of interdisciplinary perspectives on the prison cell: a contested place of home, labour and leisure. The Prison Cell’s empirical attention is global in its consideration, bringing together both contemporary and historical work that focuses upon the cell in the Global North and South including examples from a variety of geographical locations and settings, including police custody, prisons and immigrant detention centres. This book is an important and timely intervention in the growing and topical field of carceral studies. It presents the only standalone collection of essays with a sole focus on the space of the cell.
