Angular Trifecta

When the Space Force went to war with the Slorgs, it caused more than military fatalities.  The faction of the Humans suffered a divisional rift along ideological lines that caused a group of separatists to realize their pacifist vision by seceding away from the megapower in order to form Galaxy Bloc.  Located deep within the Quadron System, their upstart vulnerability is seen by the enemies of Humanity as an exploitable weakness.  So sets the stage for the events on the planet Dio Qze and enters its respective trinity of players: Enderbrook Boyd - an Enforcer using black ops to try and lure the assemblage of unincorporated planets back into the Space Force fold.  Janette Ueberrhein - a botanist whose purpose is to avert a mortgage crisis having little to do with the economic arbitrage opportunities of the greedy and everything to do with the bioterrorist acts of the shady.  Burdlit Giz - the operational general, a reptilian (in appearance) Carriveaua who offers kind and timely assistance to the fledgling faction.  But why do these three really do what they do?  Because everybody has an angle to play.  This is the answer to the question but not necessarily the question which should be asked - that being the angle.  Because the stakes are so high.  A no-brainer of sorts, time would be much better spent in attempting to prevent the lengths at which an adversary would go to achieve them.  Because two (perceived) wrongs do not make a right.  But three do make it interesting.  Just because.  Angular Trifecta - three people, three agendas, three objectives - one stage, one opportunity, one chance.

About the author

I'd written a trio of micro-stories in mid-2011 - one for each of three different characters, that allowed me to tell their individual perspectives surrounding the same sequence of events.  Revisited months later, it became the pilot for a serialized Angular Trifecta which ran weekly over the course of a year from 2011 through 2012.  This release is its 52-chapter compilation.  With creative bandwidth being functionally limited, random projects rarely see the green light of day.  But when universe-building, it's often this randomness that lends additional breadth to the effort - a convincing argument for the enormity of its potential.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

Praise for Fire & Blood

“I love it so much. Fire & Blood is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but Fire & Blood flies.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.” —The Sunday Times

“The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”—The Guardian
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly).

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.

The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?

As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Praise for Past Tense

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”—The Atlantic

“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”—Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”—Library Journal (starred review)
