In the train, even before St. John's was passed, a touch of inevitable reaction had set in, and Rogers asked himself why he was going. For a sentimental journey was hardly in his line, it seemed. But no satisfactory answer was forthcoming -- none, at least, that a Board or a Shareholders' Meeting would have considered satisfactory. The old vicar spoke to him strangely. "We've not forgotten you as you've forgotten us," he said. "And the place, though empty now for years, has not forgotten you either, I'll be bound." Rogers brushed it off. Just silliness -- that was all it was. But after St. John's the conductor shouted, "Take your seats! Take your seats! The Starlight Express is off to Fairyland! Show your tickets! Show your tickets!" And then the forgotten mystery of his childhood came back to him. . . .

Reading by Starlight explores the characteristics in the writing, marketing and reception of science fiction which distinguish it as a genre. Damien Broderick explores the postmodern self-referentiality of the sci-fi narrative, its intricate coded language and discursive `encyclopaedia'. He shows how, for perfect understanding, sci-fi readers must learn the codes of these imaginary worlds and vocabularies, all the time picking up references to texts by other writers. Reading by Starlight includes close readings of paradigmatic cyberpunk texts and writings by SF novelists and theorists including Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Brian Aldiss, Patrick Parrinder, Kim Stanley Robinson, John Varley, Roger Zelazny, William Gibson, Fredric Jameson and Samuel R. Delaney.

From the author of Mayflower, Valiant Ambition, and In the Hurricane's Eye--the riveting bestseller tells the story of the true events that inspired Melville's Moby-Dick. Winner of the National Book Award, Nathaniel Philbrick's book is a fantastic saga of survival and adventure, steeped in the lore of whaling, with deep resonance in American literature and history. In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster. In the Heart of the Sea, recently adapted into a major feature film starring Chris Hemsworth, is a book for the ages.

Remember that the dream of one is the dream of everyone. Ernest is searching for a place where he can live beyond his past. His family has returned to Puerto Rico, and Ernest remains in the States, desiring only distance from his memories of childhood displacement and work, his parentsÕ tumultuous relationship, and his own love for Magdalene. Magdalene, too, looks to move beyond her memories as she follows ErnestÕs family home, seeking resolution to her motherÕs hurtful secrets, her fatherÕs unknown identity, and her love for Ernest. As Ernest moves through the fields of Michigan, as Magdalene traverses the jungles of Puerto Rico and the shores of the Caribbean, they discover that their dreams and identities are linked within the framework of their families and their pasts. Together, Ernest and Magdalene must come to terms with the secrets and mistakes made by the previous generation, the histories of disloyalty and abandonment, of secrecy and sorrow. Their struggles take place in a region of lost names, where loves and memories are banished and found. Fred Arroyo writes a story in two voices, following Ernest and Magdalene by turns in prose that is elegant and lyrical. His words evoke another world lush with the scent of salt spray, the taste of mangoes, and the rush of leaves, alive with characters whose ardors and pathos are achingly real. Arroyo explores the ebb and flow between past and present and themes that are enduring. Ultimately, Ernest and Magdalene must live with more than their memories; they must rediscover the intimacies of the region of lost names.

Is Beyond Starlight a true story that hopped a cosmic ride from elsewhere in another universe as Abbey suggests, you decide. Out past Pluto, the crew of the Sunchaser encounters an alien self replicating probe that scatters them across parallel universes and time in the multiverse. While trying to find their way back, they encounter sentient machine encephalons, planets that move at the whims of gray goo nanobots and discover what lies beyond starlight in the void at the edge of the universe. When two of the crew are saved by a benign sentient device called a Watcher and remade to be more than human, it prompts one to ask angrily "Watcher, do I have a soul, do I now call you god?" Eventually they fall into the dark energy well of the Genesis Point located at the ignition point of the big bang. Have they uncovered the backdoor that leads to the architects of the universe? Take a read, your universe will never be the same.

Fear is the greatest block to the freedom of love and life. Christ came to bring freedom from the fear of suffering and death. What is the antidote to fear? It is love! “Love casts out fear.” (1 John 4:18) The scripture goes on to tell us, “The one who fears is not perfected in love.” In other words, when God’s children mature in love they have less fear. When fear grows, it drives out love. “Fearless love” means less fear and more love. It is the essence of courage. This book has teaching and stories regarding Biblical martyrdom, Islamic martyrdom and Christian persecution. But do not be intimidated. These are powerful subjects and they are written with the intent to bless you and change your life forever. It is first written for Christians who are looking for purpose and hope in these days of worldwide terrorism and second for Muslims seeking the heart of God in true worship. Our hope is that the fruit of this book will produce a fearless love to help you enjoy the journey of an obedient life that God intends for all His children. You’ll learn: · About basic Muslim beliefs. · How to reach out to Muslims. · How to share the gospel with Muslims. · How God gives faith that overcomes the fear of suffering and death. · How a close relationship with Jesus Christ gives us fearless love. · How to battle the global war on terror from the spiritual battlefield. The Biblical teaching of Christian martyrdom is a call to intentional, purposeful living and a bold witness of faith. These fifty true stories of courageous Christians will bring encouragement, inspiration, and hope in the coming days of terrorism in America.
