The Ca'cadasans are not the only threat in the Empire during wartime Nature itself, run away science, environmental hazards, all take their toll. Six tales of the threats on the frontiers of the Empire, whether at the edge of civilization or the edge of science, and the brave people who face them. The Mountains: Two explorers look in one of the most inhospitable places in known space, the mountains of Everest, for the find that will set them for life. But is a find like that worth their lives? The Hunted: When a young man betrays the mob, only the deadly swamplands of his planet offer a place to hide. The mob is relentless, but they haven't faced anything like the continent spanning swamp. What's Eating You: Just because something can be done, doesn't mean it won't kill you. Lucille Yu discovers that when looking into other Universes, sometimes they look back. With hunger. A New Life: Cornelius Walborski only wanted to have the good things in life for he and his family. But a mistake made on a hunting expedition costs him everything. Goliath: When a twenty-five million ton warship comes calling, with the intent of killing all human life in the system, what's a frigate captain to do? The Deep: Sometimes new life is not life as we know it. And sometimes the threat to a planet is even more. The second Tales of the Empire volume fills in the tapestry of the Empire, while telling stories of courage and daring in the ongoing struggle to survive.

A sixth-generation North Carolinian, highly-acclaimed author John Ehle grew up on former Cherokee hunting grounds. His experience as an accomplished novelist, combined with his extensive, meticulous research, culminates in this moving tragedy rich with historical detail. The Cherokee are a proud, ancient civilization. For hundreds of years they believed themselves to be the "Principle People" residing at the center of the earth. But by the 18th century, some of their leaders believed it was necessary to adapt to European ways in order to survive. Those chiefs sealed the fate of their tribes in 1875 when they signed a treaty relinquishing their land east of the Mississippi in return for promises of wealth and better land. The U.S. government used the treaty to justify the eviction of the Cherokee nation in an exodus that the Cherokee will forever remember as the “trail where they cried.” The heroism and nobility of the Cherokee shine through this intricate story of American politics, ambition, and greed.

An astonishing retelling of twentieth-century history from the Ottoman perspective, delivering profound new insights into World War I and the contemporary Middle East Between 1911 and 1922, a series of wars would engulf the Ottoman Empire and its successor states, in which the central conflict, of course, is World War I—a story we think we know well. As Sean McMeekin shows us in this revelatory new history of what he calls the “wars of the Ottoman succession,” we know far less than we think. The Ottoman Endgame brings to light the entire strategic narrative that led to an unstable new order in postwar Middle East—much of which is still felt today. The Ottoman Endgame: War, Revolution, and the Making of the Modern Middle East draws from McMeekin’s years of groundbreaking research in newly opened Ottoman and Russian archives. With great storytelling flair, McMeekin makes new the epic stories we know from the Ottoman front, from Gallipoli to the exploits of Lawrence in Arabia, and introduces a vast range of new stories to Western readers. His accounts of the lead-up to World War I and the Ottoman Empire’s central role in the war itself offers an entirely new and deeper vision of the conflict. Harnessing not only Ottoman and Russian but also British, German, French, American, and Austro-Hungarian sources, the result is a truly pioneering work of scholarship that gives full justice to a multitiered war involving many belligerents. McMeekin also brilliantly reconceives our inherited Anglo-French understanding of the war’s outcome and the collapse of the empire that followed. The book chronicles the emergence of modern Turkey and the carve-up of the rest of the Ottoman Empire as it has never been told before, offering a new perspective on such issues as the ethno-religious bloodletting and forced population transfers which attended the breakup of empire, the Balfour Declaration, the toppling of the caliphate, and the partition of Iraq and Syria—bringing the contemporary consequences into clear focus. Every so often, a work of history completely reshapes our understanding of a subject of enormous historical and contemporary importance. The Ottoman Endgame is such a book, an instantly definitive and thrilling example of narrative history as high art.
