Stephen Baxter's highly acclaimed first novel and the beginning of his stunning Xeelee Sequence. A spaceship from Earth accidentally crossed through a hole in space-time to a universe where the force of gravity is one billion times as strong as the gravity we know. Somehow the crew survived, aided by the fact that they emerged into a cloud of gas surrounding a black hole, which provided a breathable atmosphere. Five hundred years later, their descendants still struggle for existence, divided into two main groups. The Miners live on the Belt, a ramshackle ring of dwellings orbiting the core of a dead star, which they excavate for raw materials. These can be traded for food from the Raft, a structure built from the wreckage of the ship, on which a small group of scientists preserve the ancient knowledge which makes survival possible. Rees is a Miner whose curiosity about his world makes him stow away on a flying tree - just one of the many strange local lifeforms - carrying trade between the Belt and the Raft.

The Raft of Odysseus looks at the fascinating intersection of traditional myth with an enthnographically-viewed Homeric world. Carol Dougherty argues that the resourcefulness of Odysseus as an adventurer on perilous seas served as an example to Homer's society which also had to adjust in inventive ways to turbulent conditions. The fantastic adventures of Odysseus act as a prism for the experiences of Homer's own listeners--traders, seafarers, storytellers, soldiers--and give us a glimpse into their own world of hopes and fears, 500 years after the Iliadic events were supposed to have happened.

A tale of grand passion set in Paris in 1818, Arabella Edge’s second novel is inspired by the story of Théodore Géricault and his extraordinary masterpiece The Raft of the Medusa. Aged just twenty-one, Géricault is feted at the prestigious salon for his painting Charging Chasseur. Seven years later – lovesick and distracted by his secret affair with his benefactor–uncle’s wife, Alexandrine – he is still desperately searching for inspiration for his next work. Then he hears about the French frigate Medusa, wrecked off the west coast of Africa. With a hundred and fifty souls abandoned on a makeshift raft, rumours of madness, murder and cannibalism horrify the French public but fascinate Géricault; when he manages to track down two of the raft’s survivors to discover what really happened during those fifteen days at sea, he knows he has finally found his subject. ‘This is a marvellously rich and pacy novel about the gestation of a masterpiece . . . Arabella Edge weaves a combination of fable, thriller and costume comedy of manners’ Novel of the Week, Telegraph

Chuck Warfield, son of a Pennsylvania coal miner, is haunted by two traumas: his fateful WWII bombing mission over Ploesti and the sudden death of his wife soon after their post-war marriage. Struggling to overcome his lingering depression, he moves to Florida to find a new life and meets Scotty Malcolm, the ebullient captain of a luxurious yacht, the Regalia. When Scotty invites Chuck to join him on his next trip as first mate, Chuck accepts and unwittingly becomes involved in smuggling a huge, mystery-shrouded diamond to the Cayman Islands. His trip is further complicated by Nicole, the beautiful and disgustingly spoiled daughter of the captain. The aura of secrecy surrounding the gemstone swiftly mounts, heightening Chuck's curiosity about its origin and identity. When strange incidents begin to occur on the Regalia, he grows fearful for the safety of those on board, and soon finds himself in the middle of high drama at sea. His journey is one you won't soon forget. Edward Russell is the pen name of the author. Born and raised in suburban Baltimore, he earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Baltimore, where he also attended law school. Most of his long government career, he worked in Washington, D.C. for the US Treasury Department. Upon his retirement, he and his wife moved across the Chesapeake Bay to the serenity of Maryland's beautiful eastern shore. Widowed in 1999, he now lives there with his spunky Scottish terrier, Gus. Years of drafting and editing highly technical administrative rulings, plus a Pisces mentality, made him yearn for the creative freedom of writing fiction. "The Raft" is his first novel.
