Ender's Shadow explores the stars in this all-new novel... At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth's scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten--a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth's history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come. For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders--the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship's colony.

Wade Davis has been called "a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life's diversity." In Shadows in the Sun, he brings all of those gifts to bear on a fascinating examination of indigenous cultures and the interactions between human societies and the natural world. Ranging from the British Columbian wilderness to the jungles of the Amazon and the polar ice of the Arctic Circle, Shadows in the Sun is a testament to a world where spirits still stalk the land and seize the human heart. Its essays and stories, though distilled from travels in widely separated parts of the world, are fundamentally about landscape and character, the wisdom of lives drawn directly from the land, the hunger of those who seek to rediscover such understanding, and the consequences of failure. As Davis explains, "To know that other, vastly different cultures exist is to remember that our world does not exist in some absolute sense but rather is just one model of reality. The Penan in the forests of Borneo, the Vodoun acolytes in Haiti, the jaguar Shaman of Venezuela, teach us that there are other options, other possibilities, other ways of thinking and interacting with the earth." Shadows in the Sun considers those possibilities, and explores their implications for our world.

Enraged screams filled his head. Deadly shapes bore down. Animal and man driven by one single thought. Kill or be killed. Neither wanted to die. Falsely accused of a terrible crime, impetuous young aristocrat Lord Dallas Acheson is forced to flee his native Scotland, leaving behind the only woman he has ever loved-Lady Lorna de Iongh. From that day onwards, he must learn to live a different life in a land where danger is an ever-present partner. Fate takes him to southern Africa and the emerging seaport of Durban, from where he sets off to trade and hunt, seeking his fortune in the little-travelled midlands of Natal and the wilds of Zululand. Tested to the limit, Dallas discovers more than he could have imagined. Married to a woman he doesn't love, he yearns to abandon the restraints of nineteenth-century society to be with Lorna. And when the Zulu war breaks out, he finds himself torn between old and new loyalties, required to be an enemy of the land that is now his true home.

With the fall of Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Saigon, South Vietnam, in April of 1975, an illegal secret war began. Using Army personnel, the CIA unleashed "Shadow," covert operations designed to disrupt the newly installed Communist governments. Now, fifteen years later, the President and the CIA have decided to activate the final phase in Cambodia, an area of continuous civil war. The key: only one man knows the identity of the agent planted within the Cambodian puppet regime. That man is Ross Kinkaid. So the stage is set, in the novel Shadows in Replay, for the re-enlistment and training of this vital, but reluctant soldier of fortune. Now a civilian, Kinkaid's recruitment has been ordered behind closed doors by the White House. Yet Kinkaid himself is faced with difficult challenges of his own. Still haunted by visions of a failed mission deep within Cambodia, he struggles with the boredom of the 9 to 5 routines. Wishing also to avoid a scandal over his love for his married secretary, Sarah Baron, Kinkaid accepts the offer of active duty.

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training. Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives. Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

This is not your standard Western, nor is it historical. Ghostdancer is a mystery/thriller, an action/adventure story set on the Colorado/New Mexico border, where the author has lived for many years. Meet Jack Parnell Mackenzie, a troubled, would-be cowboy searching for his past. It is also a tale about a young boy's love and the shame that stripped him of a life of sanity. Set from 1905 to 1969, Old Tom Sullivan lives 80 years in mental darkness. His is a story of child abuse, reincarnation, and retribution for crimes cast in previous lives. When an elusive peregrine falcon leads Parnell into the secrets of a past life, he meets the exotic Ghostdancer and witnesses her death. Young Tom Sullivan appears to him as he was at the age of thirteen. Anyone drawn to stories of the West, mysteries, or tales bordering on the supernatural and the mystery of reincarnation, will be caught up in this hard-hitting novel. Beware: Once you pick it up, you won't be putting it down. Ben Zeller lives in La Veta, Colorado. He has given readings and signings of his books throughout the world. Three of his plays, Some Die From Drinking Water, Single File Will Get You and Back to the Hat Factory, have been performed at the University of Alaska and The Pipe Dream Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The story of The First Formic War continues in Earth Awakens. Nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel Ender's Game, humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the Solar System. A thin web of ships in both asteroid belts; a few stations; a corporate settlement on Luna. No one had seen any sign of other space-faring races; everyone expected that First Contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun. When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth orbit, and began landing terra-forming crews in China. Politics and pride slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn't wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost.
