In the “excellent” sequel to The Zero Stone, Murdoc Jern searches for the source of the mysterious gem that leaves violence in its wake (Kirkus Reviews). The Zero Stone is the greatest treasure—and the greatest curse. It holds all the power of the universe, and such power is worth killing for. The seemingly dull, lifeless rock is Murdoc Jern’s sole inheritance from his father, who himself was murdered over the stone. But to uncover its power, he first has to figure out the secret of its origins. With no choice but to run for life and limb while trying to solve the mystery of the Zero Stone, Murdoc and his feline mutant companion, Eet, travel across the galaxy—business class, of course—hopping from world to world and bad situation to worse in their quest. All they have to do now is duck the lethally unforgiving Thieves Guild, avoid the never-give-up law enforcement corps of the Patrol, and somehow manage to stay alive if they want to unleash the most awesome power the universe has ever seen . . . Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton’s “version of hallucinatory and telepathic events is excellent and the . . . duo is inspired.” Along with The Zero Stone, these novels are “two of the author’s best” (Kirkus Reviews).

Based on the latest missions results and supported by commissioned artwork, this book explores the possible lessons we may learn from exoplanets. As the number of known Earth-like objects grows significantly, the author explores what is known about the growing roster of "pale blue dots" far afield. Aided by an increased sensitivity of the existing observatories, recent discoveries by Keck, the Hubble Space Telescope, and Kepler are examined. These findings, once thought to be closer to the realm of science fiction, have fired the imaginations of the general public as well as scientists. All of us are mesmerized by the possibility of other Earth-like worlds out there. Author Michael Carroll asks the tough questions of what the expected gain is from identifying these Earth analogs spread across the Universe and the reasons for studying them. Potentially, they could teach us about our own climate and Solar System. Also explored are the more remote options of communication between or even travel to these distant yet perhaps not so dissimilar worlds.

A ragtag band of explorers are looking to make the biggest score in the galaxy in the brand-new science fiction adventure novel from the national bestselling author of Linesman. Three people who are not who they claim to be: Nika Rik Terri, body modder extraordinaire, has devoted her life to redesigning people's bodies right down to the molecular level. Give her a living body and a genemod machine, and she will turn out a work of art. Josune Arriola is crew on the famous explorer ship the Hassim, whose memory banks contain records of unexplored worlds worth a fortune. But Josune and the rest of the crew are united in their single-minded pursuit of the most famous lost planet of all. Hammond Roystan, the captain of the rival explorer ship, The Road, has many secrets. Some believe one of them is the key to finding the lost world. Josune's captain sends her to infiltrate Roystan's ship, promising to follow. But when the Hassim exits nullspace close to Roystan's ship, it's out of control, the crew are dead, and unknown Company operatives are trying to take over. Narrowly escaping and wounded, Roystan and Josune come to Nika for treatment--and with problems of her own, she flees with them after the next Company attack. Now they're in a race to find the lost world...and stay alive long enough to claim the biggest prize in the galaxy.
