A huge international corporation has developed a facility along the Juan de Fuca Ridge at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to exploit geothermal power. They send a bio-engineered crew--people who have been altered to withstand the pressure and breathe the seawater--down to live and work in this weird, fertile undersea darkness. Unfortunately the only people suitable for long-term employment in these experimental power stations are crazy, some of them in unpleasant ways. How many of them can survive, or will be allowed to survive, while worldwide disaster approaches from below? Starfish, the first installment in Peter Watts' Rifters Trilogy At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

"Dazzling" – Bustle "This book is a gem" – Book Riot "The best YA debut novel of the year" – Paste Magazine "A brave, unfiltered look into a young girl’s attempt to find herself in the face of abuse and rejection. It will break your heart and then piece it back together again." – Sandhya Menon, New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi Kiko Himura has always had a hard time saying exactly what she’s thinking. With a mother who makes her feel unremarkable and a half-Japanese heritage she doesn’t quite understand, Kiko prefers to keep her head down, certain that once she makes it into her dream art school, Prism, her real life will begin. But then Kiko doesn’t get into Prism, at the same time as her abusive uncle moves back in with her family. So when she receives an invitation from her childhood friend to leave her small town and tour art schools on the West Coast, Kiko jumps at the opportunity in spite of the anxieties and fears that attempt to hold her back. And now that she is finally free to be her own person outside the constricting walls of her home life, Kiko learns transformative truths about herself, her past, and how to be brave. A luminous, heartbreaking story of identity, family, and the beauty that emerges when we embrace our true selves.

Among the most fascinating animals in the world’s oceans are the more than 2,000 species of starfish. Called "Asteroids" by scientists who study them (after their taxonomic name, Asteroidea)—or sea stars in some parts of the world—starfish are easily recognized because of their star-like form. Starfish is a comprehensive volume devoted to the integrative and comparative biology and ecology of starfish. Written by the world's leading experts on starfish, the integrative section covers topics such as reproduction, developmental biology and ecology, larval ecology, and the ecological role of starfish as a group. The comparative section considers the biology and ecology of important species such as Acanthaster planci, Heliaster helianthoides, Asterias amurensis, and Pisaster ochraceus. Replete with detailed, scientifically accurate illustrations and the latest research findings, Starfish examines the important role of these invertebrates in the marine environment, a topic of great interest because of their impact on the food web. As major predators that are able to evert their stomach and wrap it around their prey, starfish can have a significant impact on commercial fisheries. Starfish are of interest not only to echinoderm specialists but also to marine biologists and invertebrate zoologists in general and, increasingly, to the medical community. A starfish’s ability to regenerate body parts is almost unequalled in the animal world, making them ideal models for basic science studies on the topic. Contributors: Charles D. Amsler, Bill J.

A U.S. naval base is hidden among the few hundred islands of the Bahamas. Base Commander Jason Roberts relies on an old friends son, Lieutenant Billy Anderson, for answers to their incredible discovery. Andersons research team tries to locate, track, and calculate the alien crafts final underwater destination. Tracking the craft had been difficult until Andersons team installed upgrades to their current technology. Depth of the ocean offshore from the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center added to the difficulty in acquiring and tracking of the unidentified craft. The terminal flight of Starfish is salvaged under the cloak of darkness by the USS Grapple. The transfer of the craft to the base had to be conducted underwater, preventing Russian satellite coverage from viewing their newly acquired treasure. Lieutenant Anderson leads his team to complete the salvage operation, dissecting its technology. During the initial inspection of the alien ship, he found something that would change his life and career path. Why a deceptive colleague revealing secret technology to the Russians may change industries on Earth. Could he be caught? What meaning could the artifact found on the lunar surface have? What secret would lead to murder on the ISS? How could a murder look like an accident and be kept secret? The lunar mining facility is now operational. The interim docking facility can now handle the transfer of lunar materials back to Earth. Expansion for further mining and exploration outweighs the cost of supporting the aging ISS.
