Blindsight is the Hugo Award–nominated novel by Peter Watts, "a hard science fiction writer through and through and one of the very best alive" (The Globe and Mail). Two months have past since a myriad of alien objects clenched about the Earth, screaming as they burned. The heavens have been silent since—until a derelict space probe hears whispers from a distant comet. Something talks out there: but not to us. Who should we send to meet the alien, when the alien doesn't want to meet? Send a linguist with multiple-personality disorder and a biologist so spliced with machinery that he can't feel his own flesh. Send a pacifist warrior and a vampire recalled from the grave by the voodoo of paleogenetics. Send a man with half his mind gone since childhood. Send them to the edge of the solar system, praying you can trust such freaks and monsters with the fate of a world. You fear they may be more alien than the thing they've been sent to find—but you'd give anything for that to be true, if you knew what was waiting for them. . . . At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Damage to a particular area of the brain - the neocortex - is generally understood to result in blindness. Studies of some patients suffering from this form of blindness have nevertheless revealed that they can discriminate certain types of visual events within their 'blind' fields. They are not aware that they can do so, however and think that they are only guessing. This phenomenon has been termed 'blindsight'. The present book gives an account of research over a number of years intoa particular case of blindsight, together with a discussion of the historical and neurological background, a review of cases reported by other investigators, and a number of theoretical and practical issues and implications.

With a theme reminiscent of Coma, here is Robin Cook at his disturbing, electrifying best. Set in Manhattan, Blindsight tells of city forensic pathologist Dr. Laurie Montgomery's battle to foil a plot of unimaginable evil. When a series of unrelated yuppie deaths by cocaine overdose are reported to the medical examiner's office, Dr. Montgomery's curiosity is piqued. As the friends and families of the deceased uniformly swear that their loved ones weren't involved with drugs, that curiosity intensifies. But her feelings turn to anger and frustration when she attempts to autopsy the bodies and investigate the deaths, only to find herself at odds with her superiors, the police department, and the relatives themselves. The reason for the opposition range from political expediency to religious belief, but Laurie senses that something far more menacing links the so-called random deaths. Jeopardizing her professional future, Laurie Montgomery sets out to uncover the truth—which leads her to a distinguished New York hospital and, beyond that, to nightmare. Robin Cook's Blindsight creates a chilling, haunting aura of terror and suspense, where fact and fiction imperceptibly merge.

"The collection - is divided into four thematic sections. The first, "Holderlin Hybrids," resonates against the German poet's twisted syntax, while using rhythmic punctuation in counterpoint to sense. "As Were'" says Waldrop, began with looking at the secondary occupations of artists - for example, Mallarme teaching English, Montaigne serving as mayor of Bordeaux - but this soon gave way to playing more generally with particular aspects of historical figures." The title section, Blindsight," is most consistent in its use of collage, juxtaposing words and images to jolting, epiphanic effect. "Cornell Boxes," in contrast, has a formal unity, inspired by the constructions of Joseph Cornell, each prose poem "box" composed in a structure of fours: four paragraphs of four sentences each, with four footnotes."--BOOK JACKET.

The extraordinary new Mallory novel from one of the most acclaimed crime writers in America. A blind child and a Catholic nun disappear from a city sidewalk in plain sight of onlookers. There, then gone—vanished in seconds. Those who witnessed the event still cannot believe it happened. It was all too real. Detective Kathy Mallory and the NYPD’s Special Crimes Unit enter the investigation when the nun’s body is found with three other corpses in varying stages of decomposition left on the lawn of Gracie Mansion, home to the mayor of New York City. Sister Michael was the last to die. The child, Jonah Quill, is still missing. Like Jonah, the police are blind. Unknown to them, he is with a stone killer, and though he has unexpected resources of his own, his would-be saviors have no suspect, no useful evidence, and no clue — except for Detective Mallory’s suspicions of things not said and her penchant for getting to the truth beneath lies. Behind her back, the squad’s name for her is Mallory the Machine, yet she has a dark understanding of what it is to be human. A child is waiting, time is running out, and atop her list of liars is the mayor himself…and a theory of the crimes in which no sane cop could believe. From the Hardcover edition.
