Look what I found: a torrent full of sci-fi, fantasy and horror books. In a Season of Calm Weather Foreigner 01,02,03,04,05, Hands down. A series that I just gobbled up was/is the Foreigner series by CJ Cherryh. It is SF but not It is about clashing cultures, language.

No matter how far she runs, or how well she hides, she can never escape him. Or her past… Yep. A contemporary story of someone trying to outrun a very dark past and grappling with a new love in her life. Not my usual fare — and the reason why I kept turning the pages was the tension that Rose managed to engender in her writing.

If you enjoy a sympathetic protagonist in a contemporary setting, then you might well find this one difficult to put down. Though it ends on a cliff-hanger… Be warned — there is a rape scene and a severely abused child. The magical and mundane apprentices resent and fear each other, the teaching staff is unsure how to shape the university and, outside, powerful forces are gathering to snuff out the future before it can take shape.

As Adam starts his new apprenticeship, and stumbles across a secret that could reshape the world, he finds himself drawn into a deadly plot that could destroy the university …. It charts events at the new university that Emily has set up, in the hope that mundanes and magicians can learn to work together. However, events take a dark turn. I loved this one. Adam is an engaging protagonist and it was enjoyable to see the world through the eyes of someone born into it.

Former New Jersey prosecutor Sandy Moss moved to a prestigious Los Angeles law firm to make a new start as a family lawyer. So it seems a little unfair that they have created a criminal law division specifically for her. So — what happens when an attorney finds herself representing a complete jerk that she quickly comes to loathe?

This book explores the issues surrounding that dilemma. Complete review to follow. A man dies in a locked room, leaving a message written in blood and a lot of unanswered questions. Lydia is still recovering from the fallout with her psychopathic cousin, but there are new threats to the Crows, and she must fight to maintain her position as leader of the Family. Meanwhile, an actor has gone missing and Fleet is under pressure to find him fast.

But there seems to be more to his tension than he is letting on… Can Lydia solve the mysterious murder before she gets arrested for it? This urban fantasy series, set in London and featuring crow shapeshifter, Lydia, is now a firm favourite.

And as Lydia really begins to explore her scary new powers — a whole host of problems once more beset her. Very highly recommended — but whatever you do, start with the first book and work through the series. Today is a rather grim anniversary. We both went down with the illness hard, though Himself was sicker than I was and avoided going into hospital by a whisker, as his sleep apnea caused some complications.

And unfortunately, once I recovered from the illness itself, those spells of utter fatigue have never left me. I am also suffering a range of other long-lasting symptoms, including nasal drip, tinnitus and a swollen thyroid, but frankly they pale into insignificance against the mind-numbing exhaustion that leaves me scarcely able to move.

The worst spell was in the second half of August where I lay in bed for a fortnight feeling like a zombie — and once I felt well enough to get out of bed without shaking, I found that I had lost a great deal of ground. For the majority of this last year, my main daily achievement has been having a shower and getting dressed, though there have been extended periods when even that was completely beyond me.

Fortunately, this last week has been a good one. I spent Wednesday, Friday and Saturday resting up, as on Thursday my lovely sister-in-law and my niece visited. It seems like a lifetime ago. Has Lesley made a grave error of judgement? Can she track down the killer or does she already know her? I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, and once again I was quickly drawn into the story. The bonus is that as I was born and brought up in the area, I know all the place names that get sprinkled around, which gives me a clear picture of the setting.

Nuttall The Necromantic Wars are over, but there is no peace. In the aftermath of the struggle, long-held grudges are boiling over and conflicts are breaking out. The monarchs want to settle border disputes, the aristocrats want to impose their will on monarchs and peasants alike, the commoners want freedom and justice and the magical communities want to rule all or else separate themselves from the mundanes.

He believes the only path to salvation for the Allied Lands is to make himself the undisputed ruler of the world. After discovering the truth — too late — Emily is on the run, blamed for the disorder by friend and foe alike. With a handful of allies by her side, Emily must find a safe place to gather herself and strike back before it is too late to save what remains of the Allied Lands. And yet, as she flees through lands plagued by civil wars and rebellious nobility, hunted by powerful sorcerers, aristocrats and rebels who want to kill her or use her for their own purposes, she is forced to accept it may not be possible to save everything and to realize, as much as she might wish to deny it, that her mentor might be right.

I continue to be impressed at how deftly Nuttall manages to produce a very powerful heroine, who nonetheless has real vulnerabilities so that she is often at real risk. Murder is suspected, but the house was supposed to be absolutely secure against any intruder.

Thea is faced with a hostile group of household servants inside the house and demands for swift justice outside its walls. Can Thea uncover the truth of the death before the tensions in the city spill over and more deaths occur?

But Vanessa Nelson is now one of my favourite authors, thanks to this classy fantasy. A police procedural set in a medieval city where young Thea slakes her thirst for justice by joining the Watch — and puts her unique talents to work in catching killers and law breakers.

Enjoying a weekend in the country with his cousin Isabelle, Jack Haldean is intrigued to learn that the neighbouring estate of Birchen Bower has been bought by wealthy Canadian businessman Tom Jago. Determined to restore the place to its former glory, Jago has invited the local villagers to a fete to celebrate the grand re-opening of the 17th century family chapel. Previously owned by the eccentric Cayden family, Birchen Bower has a long and colourful history, and is rumoured to be haunted.

Is there any truth to the ancient family legend of the Jaguar Princess. Refusing to believe the wild tales of man-eating beasts prowling the grounds, Jack sets out to uncover the truth. But then a second badly-ravaged body is discovered. Could the rumours be true after all? I enjoy a good murder mystery, especially one set in the s — and this is one is a cut above the average by quite a way. Full review to follow. Cherryh Nearly two centuries after the starship Phoenix disappeared, leaving an isolated colony of humans on the world of the atevi, it unexpectedly returns, threatening the stability of both atevi and human governments.

With the situation fast becoming critical, Bren Cameron, the brilliant, young paidhi to the court of the atevi is recalled from Mospheira where he has just undergone surgery. Upon his return to the mainland, he Cameron finds that his government has sent in his paidhi-successor, Deana Hanks—representative of a dangerous faction on Mospheira who hate the atevi.

Haunted by the threat of assassination, Bren realizes his only hope may be to communicate with the Phoenix as the spokesman of the atevi—an action which may cut him off for good from his own species. The writing is dense and at times, when Bren is stressed, his thoughts can whirl in circular patterns — which is very realistic. But when reading them off the page can get a tad tedious. Very highly recommended if you like your sci fi nuanced and layered.

She wants to leave Hollow Jimmy before someone recognises her and remembers her part in the events that led to the human race being all but wiped out. But others have plans too, for Maiga and for Hollow Jimmy. Their fates are about to be intertwined. Captain Bara wants revenge. Perhaps that will silence the noises only she can hear aboard her ship, the Trebuchet.

A ship whose name is becoming a curse to those who would like to see humanity finished off once and for all. For Bara, Hollow Jimmy is not a sanctuary. This space station adventure is another gem in a duology that deserves to be far better known. I was left reeling after the twist ending of Shoot the Humans First — and gave myself a bit of time to process it before diving into this one.

It is a tense page-turner that has stayed in the memory. Highly recommended. That black anger that had lifted after my reflexology appointment had the good manners to stay away, which was a huge relief. I wake up still feeling weary and often drop back off to sleep after breakfast. And there was another bit of progress. So when Himself needed to visit his mother on Thursday, rather than rearrange my reflexology appointment, I decided to drive there. Or start taking Twinkle out on daily runs.

Not yet. Thank goodness for books! Libbie and the other members of her weekly cocktail club are shocked to discover that their eccentric friend was a witch and that they are the recipients of her magical assets. The more her life changes, however, the more Libbie realizes that maybe the end of midlife as she knows it is exactly what she needs. This enjoyable contemporary read is more about the challenges of dealing with modern life as a woman no longer in the first flush of youth, with a paranormal splash thrown in to help.

As a motivational speaker, she devotes her time to helping people achieve their goals, to become the best versions of themselves. Apparently, the best version of Kate now includes being a witch. Of course, it would be nice if she could actually do magic instead of being a witch in name only.

So Kate is thrilled when a magical cocktail recipe finally appears in her book—until she drinks it. Suddenly her run of good fortune takes a left turn and her life begins to spin out of control. This was a more challenging story with a far less charming protagonist, though I grew to really like her. I found this story took some intriguing turns and I will probably be reading more of this series in due course.

While the newbies are settling in, an ambiguous banner appears demanding one of them return home. But who is it for? Lexy and her friends put a plan into action to ward off the perpetrator, but the very next night, a resident disappears and a message scrawled in human blood is found. As California shuts down, the Last Ditchers make another gruesome discovery.

Is the motel under attack from someone on the outside? Scary as that is, the alternative is worse by far. This one was my reading highlight of the week. I loved it. The eccentric found family coping with the gathering catastrophe that is the pandemic makes a memorable backdrop to this quirky murder mystery. I loved the humour and warm-heartedness — though I hasten to add that the murder is treated with appropriate respect and shock, more so than many whodunits I read, these days.

Until, that is, things start to go terribly wrong all across the city of Manchester. Between plagues of rats, firestorms and the gleaming blue eyes of a sexy Scottish werewolf, she might just have landed herself in the middle of a magical apocalypse.

She might also be the only person who has the ability to bring order to an utterly chaotic new world. So imagine her surprise when she is detailed for a mission to the dark and mysterious planet Remus Strange things are afoot on Remus 12, a dust-bowl which according to legend bursts to life once every five thousand years — with deadly consequences for the galaxy.

There were some moments of real drama in this classic sci fi alien encounter story. However the protagonist is such a clumsy idiot, I cannot believe that she would have made it through a single term of a supposedly elite Academy. And as for her being allowed anywhere near a tricky and important investigation on an alien planet?

Not happening. However, I did enjoy the gathering tension and the setting. Then her former partner had to go and shatter the illusion by showing up on her doorstep with grim tidings. The Silver Stag was the most notorious paranormal serial killer in modern history, and Rue brought him down.

Now a copycat has picked up where the Stag left off, and the Bureau wants her on the case. She beat the Stag once. They think she can do it again. White witches are prey, and Rue is the hunter, not the hunted. If she wants to keep her new town, her new home, her new life, then she has no choice but to find out. And I grew to also appreciate the supporting cast, who are all quirky and eccentric enough to make me want to know more about them.

Nicely done. That was the easy part. Repairing the damage he inflicted on Camber and Arden? That makes Rue wish she could bring him back to life just to kill him again. Slower this time. She must report for duty to honor her agreement with the director. Or else. What she discovers leads her deeper down the rabbit hole of Black Hat Bureau corruption and promises that, no matter how grim the past few weeks have been, the worst is yet to come.

Yes… this seems to be a new habit of mine — reading two books back-to-back by the same author. But once I finished the first one, I discovered I wanted more of these entertaining characters. I love the slow burn romance as Edwards has managed to bring some unusual aspects into the quirky courtship that makes it both funny and slightly poignant.

And the ongoing criminal investigations into brutal monsters and their sadistic handlers get increasingly tricky. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Faced by overwhelming odds, Jak and Jadora may be forced to work with the only man who can keep them alive: Malek. But what price will they have to pay for his protection?

Buroker is a fabulous storyteller — her plots invariably providing plenty of surprising twists and changes of scene, which I love. And this one is no exception. Sunday Post — Living with Long Covid 8. It was the anger I found impossible to shift. However, thank goodness I had a reflexology appointment on Thursday afternoon. Laura listened sympathetically to my teary rant about how much I hated being so vilely furious — and how it was poisoning my life at a time when I really cannot afford the energy to be so negative.

So she set to work, promising to concentrate on my emotional energies. At one point, while she was working on my hormonal energy, which she said was allll over the place, my leg was twitching uncontrollably. Whatever she did certainly worked.

I always feel very tired after a consultation. But I woke up on Friday morning feeling reasonably happy again. And that there will come a time when I will regain sufficient energy to write my books again so that my grumpy black dragon, Castellan, will once again soar through my life. Living in London, and with the opening of the new improved city version of Clava Books mere days away, things appear to be settling down.

Other than the terrible nightmares about dragons, that is. Then, when a local dryad asks her for some help, things really start to fire up. Mack is a shapeshifter with a difference and this urban fantasy is full of twists and turns that kept me reading throughout a wretched night and into the small hours. And there is also a doozy of cliffhanger at the end that had me reaching for the next book in the series — which is something that I hardly ever do.

Mack Smith, a fiery Draco Wyr, is battling to come to terms with her emotions, her heritage and her true capabilities. All she has to do is defeat Endor, win back Corrigan and live happily ever after. From the streets of London and Russia, to the beaches of Cornwall, will she be able to ever win the day?

Not only does this book deliver yet another engrossing adventure featuring short-tempered Mack, our foul-mouthed yet endearing heroine — it also has to produce a convincing and satisfactory conclusion to this series. And then she did… I completed this one with a lump in my throat and a smile on my face.

The Gathering — Book 1 of The Hundred series by Vanessa Nelson As one of the Hundred, Yvonne cannot ignore a plea for help, even if all she wants is a quiet life, somewhere safe for her adopted children to grow into adulthood. Safety is in short supply. Young people, some of them children, are going missing in large numbers, leaving bewildered and grieving families behind. She finds an unexpected ally in an arrogant goblin lord, who seems intent on following her from place to place.

With her skills in magic, and his resources, can they track down the kidnappers and return the children home? The relationship between Guise and Yvonne is beautifully done and I look forward to reading the next one. The witches of Santa Fe need her. A mysterious, illicit drug that only affects witches is gaining more traction by the day, and every minute she spends worrying about her own future is an opportunity for another witch to die.

Can Emily stop the flow of the deadly narcotic and prove herself before her clock runs out, or will she be carted off to face tribunal in chains? This urban fantasy whodunit has a strong heroine, who used to be an emergency nurse who is dismissed once she registers as a witch. Now she ekes out a living as a consultant on magical cases with the local police department. In all, seventy-two were injured, and the body count rose to seventeen. Local hospitals were filled with bleeding attendees, and, at one point, the bride, her bloodied white wedding dress cut away and spilling onto the emergency room floor, went into cardiac arrest.

Her groom died at the scene. Philomena Muir became a widow on her wedding day. That brief meeting became the catalyst for a brewing war, pitting one human witch against the might of a supernatural race. The cards are stacked, and Philomena needs a winning hand… This is an unusual book and despite the slight unevenness of the story-telling and the ease with which some of the conflicts are overcome, I enjoyed the dynamic. The dramatic backstory is very well handled and I really liked Phil.

Overall, an intriguing and memorable read. Nuttall Laughter Academy is in trouble. The student witches are growing increasingly reckless, preying on the mundanes below the mountains as their tutors plot and scheme to take advantage of the chaos. And no one seems to know why.

Emily is in no condition to intervene. But she cannot refuse. And then triggers a major change by introducing some key inventions — what would happen then? Just to see where it goes. A brutal uprising in the Kingdom of Alluvia has shaken the Allied Lands — and Emily finds herself accused of starting it. Desperate, all too aware the kingdom is on the verge of becoming a vortex of chaos, Emily travels to Alluvia in the hopes of calming both sides long enough to secure peace….

I pretty much inhaled this one — the beginning is fraught and full of danger. Oh my goodness. A time slip in Versailles, problems in the Ice Age and illegal time travellers in need of rescue. Must be a job for the Time Police. Luke, Jane and Matthew are back and ready to cause havoc — inadvertently or otherwise — in their latest adventures. In typical Taylor style, there are also deeply moving and emotional moments, too.

It was a joy to listen to. Sunday Post — Living with Long Covid 7. T hank you so much for visiting and commenting. This series featuring disaster magnet Draco Tell Dramis is also set before the Earth Girl books in the same world — but only a few years before we get to meet young Jarra. Drago has now learned the secret that his Betan clan has been hiding for almost a decade.

They both have to put their feelings aside though, and concentrate on using lumbering solar array transport ships to help with the repairs of the five Earth solar arrays, because Earth is critically short of power. Edwards does an excellent job of giving sufficient information without silting up the pace.

There is an energy and optimism in her work that is so often missing in sci fi writing, which often deals with the worst-case scenarios. But it is far more about the people who strive to do the best in difficult circumstances, rather than concentrating on those who are only out for themselves. The main protagonist, Draco, could so easily have come across as a bit of a Gary Stu — he comes from a rich, well-connected family, can charm the stars out of their solar systems and is classically handsome.

But tensions threaten to shake apart the tentative international consortium even before the crew leaves Earth. Once the crew lands, however, tensions are doubled because the team is over , miles away on a hostile and life-threatening planet. But the greatest discovery may yet be made on the surface of Mars. Sequel: Return to Mars. Heinlein—see p. For years Mars has beckoned to Earth from across a maddeningly small in galactic terms and yet seemingly insurmountable distance.

Mars, ripe for exploration and colonization. In , one hundred would-be colonists set out to accomplish the impossible: terraform and colonize Mars. For some, it is a chance at a new life; for others, Mars holds the promise of riches; and for still others, it may hold the greatest secrets of life and death. In my opinion, this is the best book ever written about Mars.

Winner of the Nebula Award. Dickson Solis by A. Heinlein Podkayne of Mars by Robert A. Heinlein Red Planet by Robert A. Lewis Red Dust by Paul J. As our closest satellite, the Moon has occupied a prominent position in the imagination of science-fiction writers.

Unlike Mars, the Moon is not considered a candidate for terraforming into an Earthlike environment. The Moon is incapable of supporting an atmosphere of any kind. Books in this section generally are about establishing a human colony on the Moon but may also involve permanent settlements. What would happen if planets could catch a virus?

Moonseed is a nanovirus——part machine, part virus—that consumes planets. The moonseed is discovered on Earth after parts of Scotland and the United States are consumed. Can the Moon be made habitable in time? Paul Stavenger had a dream: to build Moonbase, the first permanent human colony on the Moon.

Unfortunately, Paul is murdered by the very technology that makes Moonbase possible: nanotechnology. In the case of the Moonbase, nanotechnology is used to construct buildings with lunar materials and to repair, microscopically, damage to human bodies. Sequel: Moonwar. On the Moon are great quantities of the isotope helium-3, which could be used as an alternative fuel source.

Opposing Jack are NASA which is not happy at all about the theft of its shuttle and a mysterious group that will do anything to stop spaceflight. Back to the Moon by Homer Hickam In the year , humankind has made great strides in technology, the most notable being the first manned flight to Mars and the opening of a permanent settlement on the Moon.

Just when the future looks brightest, disaster looms as a fast-moving comet named Tomiko is discovered on a collision course with the Moon. If the Moon is destroyed by the comet, then Earth will almost certainly be destroyed as well. What steps can be taken to avert this disaster? The crew must overcome tremendous odds just to reach Titan, where they find even greater challenges waiting for them.

Titan by Stephen Baxter If there was a place in the solar system that would approximate hell, it would be the surface of Venus, where air pressure is measured in thousands of pounds per square inch; where, although the air is not poisonous, it still cannot sustain life; and where the temperature is hot enough to melt aluminum.

It is to this planet that Van must travel. Van Humphries is the younger brother of the first man who attempted a landing on Venus and who did not survive the attempt. Venus by Ben Bova Near the end of the next century, diseases are evolving so rapidly that the average human life span has fallen to twenty years. But disaster awaits the crew at every stage of the mission. Will anyone survive to take the knowledge home?

In the twenty-first century, Earth is suffering from global warming and overpopulation. To help correct this, humans devise a new program that places convicts on asteroids where they hollow out their own cells. The asteroids are then inserted into a solar orbit, eliminating the need for guards as well as the physical and emotional abuse common in prisons.

But after extended time in solar orbit, what happens when the convicts are reintroduced into society? Do they have to be reintroduced? Others on the station see Venus as the prime opportunity to rekindle a rebellion of Mars and Moon colonies against the United Nations. But everything is thrown out of balance when the researchers make two monumental discoveries—they locate a building that may have been built by aliens, and they make first contact with an alien race that seeks to use Venus as its refuge.

With the creation of mechanical life comes a host of concerns for humankind, most notably that these creations are usually stronger, faster, and smarter than we are. These attributes present the difficulties of not only how to control them but, in the case of androids, how to tell them apart from real humans. Androids, although mechanical in nature, are designed to look like ordinary human beings. Robots, on the other hand, can be crafted in the shape of a human that is, with a recognizable head, two arms, and two legs but can also take any shape imaginable.

C3PO has a human shape while R2D2 looks like a rolling garbage can. OH MY! Cyborgs are human beings that have had body parts replaced with mechanical components that enhance their abilities. Does this mean that someone who has lost a limb or other body part and replaced it with a prosthetic is a cyborg? One problem that frequently occurs in this subgenre is that the writer has not researched the physics of limb replacement and makes the cybernetic arm or leg much stronger than the human skeleton can support.

The books in this subgenre are either about or have as their protagonist or other major characters a robot, cyborg, or an android. Isaac Asimov has had the greatest impact on this subgenre. His Three Laws of Robotics have been utilized by just about every author writing books about robots and androids.

Cyborgs, however, are usually not limited by the Robotics Laws because they are basically human in nature. The Robot Series by Isaac Asimov—see p. When Charlie Outis arranged for his head to be cryogenically frozen after his death, he hoped to be revived in the future to experience the utopia humankind created.

What he found was a nightmare. In the future, cryogenically frozen heads are a valuable commodity, for they alleviate the enormous expense of creating artificial intelligence. When Charlie is revived, he is given two choices by a mysterious agent of the Commonality: one, have his entire brain installed as the CPU of an ore miner in the Asteroid Belt; or two, have pieces of his brain parceled out to work as the CPUs for several smaller machines.

It is not surprising Charlie chooses the first option. He is understandably unhappy about his fate until a group comes forward with the promise of a new life on Mars. Solis by A. Attanasio By , humans have begun to colonize the galaxy. To facilitate the creation of these colonies, and to help relieve boredom, the colonists are issued incredibly lifelike androids. Then a group of androids goes on a murder spree and flees to the anonymity of Earth.

Bounty hunter Rick Deckard is given the job of hunting down the rogue androids—a job that may prove fatal for him. Warning: This book is very different from the movie inspired by it, Blade Runner! Long ago a race of aliens built a vast fleet of ships containing robots and released them into the universe. Once on-site the robots were to set up self-replicating factories and begin harvesting resources.

One ship, however, deviated from this plan after being damaged by a supernova. Many years later an Earth probe discovers the robots and, more astonishing, reveals that the robots are a sentient, reproducing race that has evolved and created a religion. Sequel: Immortality Option. Code of the Lifemaker by James P. Hogan Man Plus is a project to explore and colonize Mars by surgically enhancing human beings with cybernetic implants. With tensions rising on Earth, Mars seems to be the only option for survival of the human race.

But can cyborgs and humans live together? Sequel: Mars Plus. Dick Legion of the Damned by William C. I never liked the idea of doing what a machine says. I hate having to salute something built in a factory. The computer leaps out and gets you! You can do what it wants and live, or refuse and get the infamous Blue Screen of Death!

It seems that computers are getting smarter and smarter every day. Computers can now use voice recognition software to accept input from their users, eliminating the keyboard for most routine applications. As computers get closer and closer to true intelligence, to becoming self-aware, many writers have become concerned. The reason for their concern is that the intelligence that scientists are trying to create in computers is based upon a model for the human brain.

This will cause the computer to go on a rampage and end all life on this planet as we know it. Although a computer may control a ship or other form of transportation and thus affect its movement, it cannot move itself without outside assistance. Clarke—see p. The year is and Earth is in the midst of a crushing economic depression caused by massive overspending in the s and s. The designer of the weapon is the supercomputer DEUS, which, in the course of developing the weapon, becomes selfaware.

A fortunate or unfortunate side effect of self-awareness is that DEUS now has a conscience. Soon the hapless computer is overcome with grief and decides to take the only logical to DEUS way out: suicide. The problem is that DEUS has decided to eliminate all life, not just its own.

The Government is suspicious at this lack of progress and sends Bayley to investigate. In reality, the scientists at North Industries are very close to success and are very upset when Bayley arrives. To keep their secret, the scientists have only two choices: kill Bayley or make him the first Lifescan test subject. They choose the latter and successfully load Bayley into the computer where he discovers that he is cut off from the outside world.

His only human contact is the creator of Lifescan, a megalomaniac who can do anything he wants in the computer environment in which Bayley lives. Poverty had been eliminated as humankind spread Berserkers! First contact had been made with alien races and peace was the outcome.

Then the Berserkers came. Berserkers are planet-sized superweapons guided by self-aware computers with singular programming: destroy all life. Series titles in order: Berserker! Omnibus: Berserkers: The Beginning contains Berserker! On the Moon humans have created a paradise free of all illness, where everything a person needs is provided by the Central Computer CC , a vast AI artificial intelligence that controls the colony.

For Hildy Johnson, however, life is not a paradise. In fact, Hildy wants nothing more than to end his life. The CC tries to help Hildy with his problems, but as the two progress through the therapy, the CC admits that it, too, has been feeling suicidal. As the CC descends farther into madness, Hildy must discover what is affecting it before the CC destroys itself and the colony with it.

Steele Caverns of Socrates by Dennis L. The Imperium Game by K. The key component of cyberpunk is computer expertise, often enhanced through cybernetic implants that allow the user to connect his or her mind to a computer, data network, or the Internet. The main character of cyberpunk is most often an antihero who thumbs his or her nose at authority of any kind and uses superior computer skills to combat those in authority.

The environment in cyberpunk novels is generally dark and gritty with a gothic or noir feeling. Sex and drugs are also prevalent in cyberpunk novels. Neuromancer by William Gibson Case was the best at what he did: collecting information. By linking his mind to the Internet, Case was freed from his body. Then Case double-crossed the wrong client and was forcefully removed from the Internet. His brain damaged to prevent reconnection with the Internet, and locked into his physical body, Case had hit rock bottom.

To ensure loyalty, the employer injects Case with a slow-acting poison, the antidote to be provided after the mission is over. But as Case progresses into the mission, he uncovers conspiracy after conspiracy, culminating in a showdown with a dangerous entity known only as the Neuromancer. Neuromancer was the winner of the three most coveted awards in science fiction: the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Philip K. Dick Awards. The book also is credited with creating the cyberpunk genre.

By , generations have been raised with only one philosophy: do whatever you have to in order to get ahead. Jack Potter is the perfect embodiment of this philosophy. Using a device that allows him to link his brain with powerful computers, Jack has clawed his way into a shot at a tenure position. But his chances are dwindling because of an academic rival, and the National Security Organization is investigating Jack for suspected information-dealing with China.

Then Jack makes an incredible discovery. Hidden in an interstellar signal is a message from an alien species. When Jack contacts the aliens, he finds they are offering many things, including a cure for cancer. But everyone wants to get in on the opportunities the aliens offer and will do anything, even kill, to get them.

Signal to Noise by Eric S. Nylund Jerzy Rugby is extremely intelligent and creative, and a loner. His obsession lately has been the development of robotic intelligence. All these traits make Jerzy the prime suspect for the release of the destructive cyberspace ants onto the Net. The ants themselves began replicating as soon as they were released and quickly developed intelligence, causing them to turn against their creator.

As forces move in to arrest Jerzy, he is forced to go on the run even as he is trying to discover who set him up. The Hacker and the Ants by Rudy Rucker Under the moniker of Trouble, India Carless was once the greatest of the hackers, able to break even the most sophisticated computer security program. Then the government decided to cut down on the security breaches of the Internet, and India quickly retired to become a system operator.

India has no choice but to marshal the troops, hackers from her former life, to track down the imposter and clear her name. Hiro Protagonist great name, huh? Everything that the user sees, smells, tastes, hears, and touches is created by a computer.

Using a virtual reality program, a person can experience anything that can be imagined and created by the computer, from taking part in the defense of Little Round Top at Gettysburg to finding out what it would be like to be married to Marilyn Monroe. In some cases, users interact with the virtual reality through a helmet that covers their eyes and special gloves on their hands.

In other cases, users enter the environment through a direct connection of their mind to the computer. Most people are familiar with virtual reality through the holosuites featured on the Star Trek television programs: Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. In these cases, the user enters the room and a hologram is projected on the walls, ceiling, and floor with the computer creating people, animals, and objects and inserting them into the holosuite.

However users access the virtual reality program, it allows them to experience a wide range of emotions, adventures, history, even different lifestyles without any danger or inconvenience to themselves. When they are done, they can unplug from the program and return to their lives none the worse for wear.

It either provides the environment the hero lives in or creates the conflict of the story. In the future, millions of users escape reality by jacking into Gametime. Gametime is a virtual reality complex that entertains as well as educates. When the CEO of Gametime is captured and Gametime crashes, trapping millions of users online, Frank Gobi is called in to investigate the kidnapping and restore the system.

For the researchers watching from the outside, it becomes a race against time to get the Foxes safely out of VR. When the worldwide computer net crashed, the world of Virtu was created.

Virtu is a virtual reality environment coexisting beside our world, called Verite. Inside Virtu the Gods of myth are planning to invade and conquer Verite, and only the hero Donnerjack stands in the way of their plans. The End Is Near! The end of the world is, for some reason, a favorite topic of science-fiction writers.

Whether it is a globe-destroying asteroid or the geological equivalent of heartburn, the destruction of Earth makes for captivating reading. The books in this chapter fall into three categories: pre-holocaust, during the holocaust, and postholocaust. Pre-holocaust stories take place when the disaster is pending and humankind must find a way to avoid it. During the holocaust, the disaster is unfolding and humankind must find a way to survive. Postholocaust is the most popular category for science-fiction writers.

An example of post-holocaust fiction: the button has been pushed, and humankind has been nuked and is living in the rubble with the cockroaches, of course. Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler Lauren Olamina is an empath living in one of the walled cities prevalent after the collapse of civilization.

Lauren feels the pain of others, and when her village is destroyed, she takes her talent on the road hoping to help people. During her travels she is joined by other refugees. All that has been achieved is threatened by a rogue asteroid on a collision course with Earth. As humans race to marshal the resources to prevent the collision, a sect of religious fanatics sees the asteroid as the divine will of God and will do anything to sabotage the anticollision efforts. The Hammer of God by Arthur C.

Clarke Blind Waves by Steven Gould After the polar ice caps melt, the sea level of the world rises a hundred feet, dislocating millions and isolating whole societies. In New Galveston, a floating city located over the sunken coast of Texas, Patricia Beeman ekes out a living as a salvage diver. But everything changes when Patricia locates a freighter recently sunk by military-grade ordinance, with a hold full of dead and chained immigrants.

Frightened by the implications, Patricia flees, only to be pursued by an Immigration and Naturalization patrol boat. Meeting INS Commander Thomas Bechet, she falls in love with him, thereby dragging him into a plot more serious than the two can imagine. Patricia and Thomas must investigate quickly in order to extricate themselves from the mess before they, and the rest of humanity, pay the ultimate price. Living in a world blasted and torn apart by an ancient war, Snake makes her living as a healer.

To assist her in the healing arts, Snake uses an alien being called a Dreamsnake. Then she discovers that she can obtain another Dreamsnake, and, to retrieve it, she sets off on a perilous quest that will challenge all her abilities and could cost her her life.

In a knee-jerk reaction, the survivors of the holocaust have purged society of all doctors, scientists, historians, and so on. Enter Liebowitz, a scientist who is collecting books and moving them into the Catholic Church. He is caught and slowly tortured to death for the crime of harboring books and knowledge. In response, he is made a martyr by the church, and the Holy Order of Liebowitz is formed to make him a saint.

Miller Jr. A Canticle for Liebowitz is a story of faith in the face of adversity. Alternate history takes the established history of events, usually changes the outcome of one of these events, and then explores what would have happened from there. In , German fortunes of war were very different—Germany wins the war and controls much of Europe and the U. The victims are retired Nazi officials. As Xavier, with the help of American journalist Charlie Maguire, investigates the murders, he uncovers a top secret cover-up that could destroy everything the Nazis have created.

Empire of Fear by Brian Stableford The Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove The year is and the Confederate army is just a pale shadow of its former glory after a string of defeats that began with the loss at Gettysburg. Lee is approached by a man who offers him an astounding weapon called the AK Who could be supplying this futuristic weapon and what are their plans for the fledgling Confederate government?

Heinlein E verybody has at least one event that they would love to go back in time and change if they could. Some would like to go back to Dallas, Texas, on November 22, , and unload the bullet that was used to assassinate President Kennedy. Others would go back in time to Pearl Harbor on December 7, , and warn the officers of the impending Japanese attack.

But this is not all that time-travel fiction is about. Other uses of time travel include research why go through all those historical documents and interviews with survivors when you can observe it firsthand? There are two types of time-travel fiction: science fiction and fantasy. The key to understanding the difference between the two types is to recognize the manner of travel the character utilizes. If the character uses a machine, psychic ability, or some other form of technology, then it is science fiction.

If the character happens to trip over a magical toadstool while touring Celtic sites in Ireland and wakes up in the past, then it is fantasy time travel. Unfortunately, not many books are strictly fantasy time travel.

A number of romance books utilize a fantasy time-travel component, but as these books concentrate on the romance and just use time travel as a means of telling the story, they will not be included in this book. Zeus Incorporated. The Company became the most powerful entity because of two great discoveries—the secret to immortality and practical time travel. Some say that Dr. Zeus discovered immortality through time travel. In reality, the Company discovered time travel as the only way to test immortality.

The Company then found the answer to a question that has perplexed scholars and philosophers alike: Can the past be changed? The answer is no. The Company then set out to send its agents backward in time to influence people to make the correct investments so that hundreds of years later, the Company has wealth beyond imagination. The Company also went into the past seeking agents who could be made immortal through cybernetic implants. These agents would then be trained to work for the Company.

Mendoza is one of these agents, rescued from the Spanish Inquisition and trained as a botanist for the Company. The Novels of the Company series by Kage Baker On her twenty-sixth birthday, an AfricanAmerican writer named Dana Franklin receives a life-altering gift: She is sent back in time to the s in the South. There she has to save the life of Rufus, the white son of a slave owner and, as Dana discovers, one of her ancestors.

Dana is eventually made a slave herself and is initiated into the horrors of slavery. How will a modern woman react to slavery? That is, until they realize that someone has done just that, changing the flow of history. What could the interveners have been trying to avoid?

Can the damage be fixed, and, if so, what are the consequences of fixing the changes? In , archaeologists uncover a note from their team leader—the problem is that the paper and ink used to write the note date from ! It seems that the team leader has also been working on a time travel project utilizing quantum mechanics and has become trapped in the past. But the rescuers have no idea what deadly surprises await them in the past. Timeline by Michael Crichton As a history major, I find the ideas in this book fascinating.

In the future, time travel is a tool for historical research, allowing researchers to experience and observe history firsthand. Why did I spend all that time pawing through pieces of paper when I was an undergraduate? Student Kivrin Engles is making preparations to travel back to Christmas But before she can complete the preparations, and before her immunizations can take full effect, her departure time is moved up and she is sent back.

His next concern is to use his knowledge of history to stop the fall of the Roman Empire and thus avert the Dark Ages.

Sequel: To Bring the Light. Lest Darkness Falls by L. Sprague De Camp This book is part of the Eternal Champions series, which explores the concept of chaos versus order, but you do not have to read any of the other books in the series to understand Dancers at the End of Time. In the far future, technology has advanced to the point where humans have developed into beings with godlike powers and near immortality.

These beings live at a place called the End of Time. One of these beings, Jherek Carnelian, has grown bored with his life because his people can grant any wish that they desire. Amelia Underwood, a traveler from Victorian England , to be exact. Jherek decides to fall in love with Amelia, who does not return his favors because she is already married.

This does not deter Jherek in the least and he continues to pursue her, even journeying to England when she returns to her home. Its survivors try to eke out an existence from the ruined soil, while also trying to avoid the irradiated lands called the Glowing Lands.

Then Joanna learns that her father has arranged her marriage to a loutish neighbor, and she flees into the one place where no one will follow: the Glowing Lands. But she has not counted on Flynn pursuing her into the lands.

Everyone, at one point or another, has wanted to possess some kind of special talent or ability of the superhuman kind. It could be the ability to transport instantaneously from one spot to another, a talent that would be very handy to have on those occasions when the call of nature is very insistent. Or it could be the ability to move at very high speeds like the superhero The Flash. Imagine being able to clean your entire house in under thirty minutes at super speed and then have the rest of the day to yourself!

The fact is that we can identify with superheroes, we admire them, and, deep down, we want to have superheroes in the world. We want to know that there is someone out there to keep us safe, to provide justice, to stop disasters like the attack from happening. Perhaps the fascination we have with superheroes lies in the bullies we encountered on the playgrounds of our childhood. The natural response to the humiliation we felt at the hands of these bullies is to want to be bigger and stronger.

And through young Billy Batson, we can live out this dream. Mysteries abound in New York City: Someone is stealing nuclear waste, homeless people are being murdered, and the price of film is skyrocketing. Well, the latter mystery is not much of a concern for most, but for newspaper photographer Peter Parker, it is a major concern.

As Spider-Man begins to investigate the murders and thefts, he has to keep his eyes peeled and his spidersense alerted for Venom, who has also begun investigating the murders and would like nothing more than to crush a hapless Spider-Man in the process. Soon Spider-Man realizes an even greater menace may be behind the crimes. Can Spider-Man and Venom put aside their differences long enough to solve the crimes?

Or will they kill each other rather than work together? To get Spider-Man out of the picture, Tyler hits upon a desperate plan: frame Spider-Man for the murder of an innocent. He must find a way to clear his name without drawing attention to himself. Just then, two of his deadliest enemies, Electro and Rhino, arrive in New York.

Can Spider-Man clear his name, capture Electro and Rhino, and avoid the police all at the same time? Superman and his colleagues disappeared years previously, leaving Earth in the hands of a younger generation of heroes. Led by the merciless Magog, these younger heroes have no compulsion against killing to stop a supervillain.

Soon most of the villains are either dead or in hiding, so the heroes begin battling each other with humankind stuck in the middle. Immediately after his escape from the prison, Bane makes his way to Gotham City to learn all he can about his nemesis, including the fact that Batman is in reality billionaire Bruce Wayne.

Finally, on the edge of exhaustion, Batman is confronted by Bane. Batman is forced to pass the mantle of the Bat to the young hero Azrael. Would you be willing to die in order to protect all that you hold dear? But which is the real Superman?

No wonder our gilded conservatives are afraid of them. Not very graphic at all, actually. Graphic novels are bound collections of superhero comics. They could be a collection of comics that were published as part of a monthly series or a special story line about a character or group of characters that was written for onetime publication.

The latter books may not even match the time line and events chronicled in the monthly comics. The following novels are suitable for library shelves because they contain no nudity, profanity, or graphic violence. But as human delve deeper into the genetic code in search of the technology of cloning humans, a whole new host of concerns is created.

With a complete understanding of the genetic code, humankind would then be able to manipulate that code to eliminate things like viruses and diseases. Doctors would also be able to repair at the cellular level problems like poor eyesight and hearing, as well as fix much larger concerns like failed or damaged organs. Theoretically doctors would also be able to design a perfect human from conception, which could lead to the following implausible scenario: Doctor: Okay, Mr.

Have you chosen a sex for your child yet? Doctor: Excellent. We have several packages of career development you might be interested in for your son. Simpson: Athlete! Can he be a football player? Simpson: Honey! We discussed the lawyer package! Simpson: Oh. How about the Doctor Package?

Simpson Resigned sigh : Fine. Simpson: Oh dear. Simpson: No acne! Simpson: Oh, all right. Doctor: All right. And would you like your son to have perfect eyesight? Doctor: Oh no, that just covers good health, but if you happen to have our perfect eyesight coupon from our website, you can have it for free.

Simpson: No. Oh dear, this is getting expensive. Although the preceding may have been in jest, the benefits of genetic engineering or manipulation could be quite great. Disease and viruses would most likely be the first targets of geneticists. Another use would be to combine human DNA with animal DNA to create a creature with the strength of a gorilla, the speed of a cheetah, and the intelligence of a human.

The books in this section either involve genetic engineering as the subject matter or have genetically engineered characters. Leo Graf is an engineer who just wants to do his job, without politics and bureaucracies. Instead of two arms and two legs like a human being, the Quaddies have four arms, which enable them to adapt to work and life in a zero-gravity environment much more easily than a human.

At first reluctant to train the Quaddies for work in zero gravity, Graf soon overcomes his misgivings and begins training them. But a rival company has developed a technology that makes the Quaddies obsolete. Unfortunately, the scientists at Cay Habitat do not see the Quaddies as human beings but as property that can be disposed of as needed.

Graf is horrified by this decision and is faced with a difficult choice: stay in the safety of his work as an engineer or begin training the Quaddies in a new skill—how to fight back. Falling Free by Lois McMaster Bujold Friday is an AP, an Artificial Person, not a robot or android but a person genetically designed to be smarter, faster, and stronger than a normal person. APs are not respected or liked in the future, and Friday must always be conscious of not revealing her true nature to anyone, which makes for a very lonely existence indeed.

Friday by Robert A. In the future, humans have been genetically designed to not require sleep. They are also physically perfect and highly intelligent. These beings have been named the Sleepless, and Leisha Camden is one of them. But tensions are high between the Sleepless and Sleepers normal humans because of the enhanced performance and longevity of the Sleepless. This forces the Sleepless to establish an orbiting space station as a sanctuary in order to continue their experiments.

Leisha, meanwhile, stays on Earth as an advocate of peace between the Sleepless and Sleepers. But unbeknownst to Leisha, the Sleepless have launched a plan to reclaim Earth by removing the indigenous population.

Beggars Trilogy by Nancy Kress In the twenty-first century, gene splicing has allowed the creation of Chimeras, part human and part animal. Chimeras are not considered human but are considered property, and this leads to trouble for a private investigator named Chase Maxwell. A Chimera named Zoe wants Chase to investigate the murder of her human friend, roboticist Janna Gold. Zoe claims that Gold was murdered by a copbot, an action that is unthinkable because copbots are programmed not to kill.

Reprogramming the copbot is believed to be impossible, but all evidence points to just that scenario. Zoe also has in her possession a device that many would kill to obtain, a device that allows the user to shut down any robot. Wells In the South Seas, a shipwrecked passenger finds refuge on a tropical island that on cursory inspection is a paradise.

But the evil Dr. Moreau has taken up residence on the island to pursue experiments that blur the line between animals and humans. The difference lies in murder. A mystery involves the murder of one or more individuals by persons unknown, and the main character must investigate and discover the guilty party.

A thriller, on the other hand, although it may have murders of individuals, usually involves a conspiracy of some kind that takes precedence over the murders. Often the main character investigates to uncover the conspiracy as a lifesaving measure because he or she has become the target of powerful individuals and organizations who wish to keep the conspiracy a secret.

Sometimes technology or science is used to solve the murder that has been committed, or the victim was murdered by someone using technology. In the years that followed, the Hun virus killed millions of whites, leaving those of African descent unscathed. In the late s, Minneapolis newspaper reporter Danny Constantine has discovered a series of murders that look like the work of a vampire. Teamed with a black police detective, Danny must dig deep to discover the identity of the murderer, even when his own newspaper refuses to carry the story.

Utilizing computers, the Internet, databases, and the latest electronic equipment, Vernon always gets his man. Only one clue was found at the murder scene: the remains of a large sand painting. Why would the assailant ignore the obvious wealth of the Kettrick mansion and destroy only the sand painting?

The search for the answer leads Vernon to the land of the Navajo and more questions than he bargained for. After all, only six other people had access to the laboratory. But when Mandel uses his powers of empathy and intuition to interrogate the suspects, he is shocked to find that all of them are innocent. Who could have killed Kitchner if not one of the six suspects? Although second in the Greg Mandel series, this can be read as a stand-alone novel.

A Quantum Murder by Peter F. The only problem is that Otto Vandegroot, the inventor of the sniffer, is not happy about this happening. Vandegroot is humiliated when David defeats him. David is shocked to later learn that Vandegroot has been murdered and David is the prime suspect! To find the murderer, David must move quickly before the police can catch him and throw him in jail.

Although not technically a science-fiction mystery, Bimbos of the Death Sun takes place at a science-fiction and fantasy convention. Best-selling fantasy author Appin Dungannon is famous for two things: his sword and sorcery series revolving around the hero Tratyn Runewind, and his overpowering ego.

His ego and arrogance lead Appin to treat his fans like scum and may be what lead to his murder at the convention. When the police arrive to investigate, they are perplexed about who would want to murder a fantasy author. Technology plays a much larger role in science-fiction thrillers than in science-fiction mysteries because the technology frequently forms the basis of the conspiracy. One of the experiments goes awry, causing an explosion that destroys the lab. In the debris Alicia finds a metallic sphere made of a material that defies explanation.

Alicia and her team find that the sphere is a cosm, a pocket of time and space that is a microscopic universe sealed off from our universe. Time moves much faster in the cosm, allowing the researchers a ringside seat to evolution. The idea was nothing short of brilliant. The results were nothing short of disastrously terrifying.

The dinosaurs could then be viewed by the public at the newly created Jurassic Park. The park planners thought they had developed a perfectly safe environment for the public. By ensuring the birth of only female dinosaurs, the scientists thought they had a fail-safe way to keep the population of dinosaurs in check. They were all wrong—dead wrong.

Sequel: The Lost World. Foreign Bodies by Stephen Dedman In , Mike Galloway has forged a tentative friendship with a homeless stripper named Swiftie, who has taken up residence on his balcony. Gavilan Robie recovers lost things for a living. Mostly he looks for missing art, but on occasion he looks for lost people. Such is the case with Siv Mathiessen, the executive of a large corporation, who has been kidnapped by ecoterrorists.

Convinced that Siv will be killed, the company hires Gavilan to track her down. Gavilan utilizes many tools to help in the search, but his most useful tool is a computer simulation of Siv. So realistic is the simulation that Gavilan finds himself falling for the beguiling woman. Just as Gavilan is close to finding Siv, the stakes are raised by the ecoterrorists with deadly results. Nocturne for a Dangerous Man by Marc Matz In the far future, the Patth control the technology of the Patth drive, which allows for hyperspace travel.

McKell and Izil are approached to do a very strange job. The job is to fly the bizarrely designed ship Icarus and its mysterious cargo to Earth. The cargo is so mysterious that it is sealed in its own chamber, which makes up most of the ship. Jordan soon realizes that a murderer and saboteur is on board. Dietz Mars Prime by William C.

Bacteriologist Jerome Stone has been on a crusade to have the government institute a program to decontaminate astronauts upon their return from space. He is surprised when the government suddenly agrees and quickly builds a facility called the Wildfire Lab. Unbeknownst to Project Wildfire, the army has been using satellites to collect alien pathogens from space to use in the most deadly round of biological warfare. Consequently, viruses arose as well.

Over the years the viruses evolved along with the life-form, eventually overtaking their hosts and spreading to Earth. Fast-forward to the future: entomologist Gary Bracken has discovered that viruses are not only intelligent, but can communicate with each other, forming clans. FBI agent Robert Kavanaugh believes the latest murders he is investigating may be related.

On the surface the murders of a showgirl in Las Vegas and a geneticist in Boston would not appear to be related, but soon Kavanaugh is able to uncover clues that point to a common suspect. Together the two are determined to get to the bottom of a conspiracy that points to the possibility of a biological weapon in the hands of the Mob.

Sequel: Stinger. During the twenty-first century, humankind was rendered sterile during the Plague Wars. In the twenty-second century, nanotechnology has evolved to the point that immortality is possible. But who should be allowed to live forever? This question causes a terrorist group to strike out at Hart in the hope of driving Helior out of hiding.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. This theory helps explain many real-life events. What is the response of someone who has been startled in a haunted house at Halloween? The response is usually fear followed by nervous laughter when the scary monster turns out to be a man in a rubber mask. Given this context, it is reasonable to assume that laughter today is primarily a means of releasing tension, to make people feel good.

Is it any wonder, then, that comedy films and television shows are so popular? Anybody who has attended a science-fiction convention has seen evidence of this firsthand, from skits that parody popular shows like Star Trek to folk songs that poke fun at almost every subject basically folk songs with a science-fiction or fantasy theme; they can be sung to the tune of either an old song or a new one.

Although all these books are set within a science-fiction background, the science is very rarely explained and rarely has any impact beyond moving the plot forward. Arthur Dent is the lone survivor of Earth, the plant having been destroyed to make way for a hyperspace thoroughfare. Together the two travelers are on a wild journey, meeting incredible aliens in their quest to find the answer to the question of life, the universe, and everything.

Some of these characters are: Zaphod Beeblebrox, the former president of the Galaxy; Trillian, literally the last woman from Earth; and Marvin, the paranoid android. One evening the three teens are at a bowling alley when a strange bowler with seven fingers on one hand attracts their attention.

Before the teens can approach the stranger, he is accosted by a group of very odd policemen. The teens help the stranger escape from the police and are surprised to learn that he is an alien and that the bowling ball he is so protective of holds a very powerful secret. In gratitude for his rescue, the alien takes the teens with him to a strange planet peopled by more aliens than the cantina scene from Star Wars.

Unfortunately, the teens are separated from their newfound alien friend and find themselves alone on an alien world trying to safeguard a sphere that many would kill to recover. Bored, they decide to move the residents of the planet apes up to the next rung of the evolutionary ladder, thereby creating the human race. Sequel: The Snake Oil Wars. The punishment is to be recruited into the Special Corps, a peacekeeping task force—after all, it takes a thief to catch a thief.

Soon di Griz finds himself launched through the galaxy on a wild series of adventures that include a timetraveling madman and a trip to hell itself. There is no trilogy, but a single comprehensive volume filled with humor and action. The year is and billionaire Harry Gant is constructing a new Tower of Babel.

This complex story is richly peopled and includes real personas, such as Ayn Rand and Abbie Hoffman, and imaginary ones, such as Meisterbrau, a mutant great white shark swimming through the sewers of New York dispatching the alligators people have been flushing for centuries. Sirrius and St. Heinlein Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. They exist side by side in whatever world they happen to inhabit.

You could see a cybernetic alien casting fireballs at a dragon with a laser attached to its head. The emphasis instead is on the fact that magic exists in the modern world. Piers Anthony and Christopher Stasheff are well-known examples of authors who have written science-fiction and fantasy blenders. In a world where cars have accident-avoidance spells in their bumpers and flying carpets are used for travel, the Incarnations of Immortality are Death, Time, Fate, War, and Mother Nature, otherworldly roles filled by mortal people.

Startled, Zane accidentally shoots Death, killing him. Zane is then forced to take on the Office of Death, and soon finds himself traveling all over the world collecting those souls that are in balance between Good and Evil.

Sequel: Doors of Death. One of these clean spots is called the Enclave, made clean by its inhabitants, the remnants of a Native American tribe.

The Enclave coexists in uneasy peace with the rest of the polluted world until an Enclave plane crashes outside the Enclave. On board the plane is a chip containing the information the Enclave inhabitants used to clean up the polluted ground. Fearing that the chip may fall into exploitive hands, the Enclave sends Gahzee and Lisa to recover it.

Chief among these is Carnival, a Mardi Gras—like celebration of magic and music. Tan-Tan accompanies her father to New Half-Way Tree where she struggles to survive in a world populated by criminals and a strange alien race. In the midst of this, Tan-Tan finds herself assuming the identity and the powers of the mythical Queen of the Carnival: the Robber Queen.

Magic flourishes upon Gramarye, but the planet is also in danger from destructive forces of technology. Rod Gallowglass can save Gramarye, but only if he can unleash his awesome magical powers. Chalker The Changewinds by Jack L. Tepper Singer from the Sea by Sheri S. The speculation has been that these mutations will eventually produce creatures with extra appendages, a grotesque appearance, and even psychic abilities.

For the purposes of this chapter, I have not included mutants that are part of the comic book world, such as the group known as the Uncanny X-Men. Years of space travel have had an unfortunate side effect on humankind, producing thousands of mutations, including such powers as telepathy, precognition, and telekinesis. The Galactic Computer was created by the Galactic Empire to catalog all the known mutations and match those mutations to the best climate for their survival.

This allowed for increased human colonization of the galaxy, but it also meant that the Galactic Computer held incredible power over all humankind, normals as well as mutants, a fact that mutant Knot was bitterly opposed to. Aided by the beautiful agent Finesse a normal , a telepathic ferret, and a precognitive crab, Knot must travel across the galaxy in a race to save all humankind.

In the future, the Espers make planning and commiting crimes impossible by periodically scanning the minds of the populace.

Driven to the edge of insanity, Jeremy sets fire to his house and escapes into a journey across America and into madness in a futile search for isolation and the peace he had enjoyed with his wife.

Instead, Jeremy finds terror and pain as he escapes from one danger only to fall into another. Clough The Simulacra by Philip K. The science involved would be the easiest answer, but not the most complete. The books in this chapter are basically science-fiction novels with a strong romantic element. But the romance is not the driving force in the story.

The science drives the story forward while the romance is basically a subplot. Unfortunately, not very many sciencefiction novels have a strong romantic subplot. Sauscony Valdoria is the heir to the throne of the powerful Skolian Empire.
