In the year 2042, Captain Stan Rhodes returns to planet Mars with a fresh crew and resumes exploring a region called the Cydonia Complex. Investigating architectural wonders from an ancient civilization, they revisit a magnificent five-sided pyramid discovered on the first mission and survey its subterranean passageways. When searching for the ruins of a city called Gaugamar forever buried in the sand, the team is asked by mission planners to penetrate the outer shell of another monument. This leads to them breaching a burial shrine from an older kingdom built for a monarch named Nemnasu. Within the funerary chamber of this monument, they encounter an extraordinary life force, and a text explains how this entity, comprised of a mass of energy, came to be interned in the tomb. The mission is further threatened when one of the team contracts an ancient disease. Coping with horrifically monstrous changes in this individual’s physiology causes this crewmember to become mentally deranged, and in this altered state, this person is soon no longer recognized as human, but is seen as something entirely different.

Come and join this crew of five as they make new discoveries while struggling to survive on the red planet.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
