Liminal Sky: Book One

Some stories are epic.

The Earth is in a state of collapse, with wars breaking out over resources and an environment pushed to the edge by human greed.

Three living generation ships have been built with a combination of genetic mastery, artificial intelligence, technology, and raw materials harvested from the asteroid belt. This is the story of one of them—43 Ariadne, or Forever, as her inhabitants call her—a living world that carries the remaining hopes of humanity, and the three generations of scientists, engineers, and explorers working to colonize her.

From her humble beginnings as a seedling saved from disaster to the start of her journey across the void of space toward a new home for the human race, The Stark Divide tells the tales of the world, the people who made her, and the few who will become something altogether beyond human.

Humankind has just taken its first step toward the stars.

Riding the crest of popularity following Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Hunt continues the action where Aaron Allston's first Terminator 3 novel, Terminator Dreams left off, with an exciting original story of John Connor, Kate Brewster, and the human Resistance battling Skynet and its deadly robots.

2029 A.D.: Paul Keeley is a member of the Resistance who died over a year ago-or so everyone thinks, until he awakens in a hospital room and stumbles out into a raging battle between John Connor's elite team of Hellhounds and a group of Skynet robots led by the deadly Terminatrix. Back at Home Plate, Resistance headquarters, members of the Resistance discover that Paul has been brainwashed by Skynet. Living in a computer-simulated dream of the twentieth century, Paul, an expert on twentieth century life, was being used as part of an effort to train the T-X terminator for a time jump. John and Kate have no way of knowing where the jump will occur, so to prevent it from happening at all, they launch a daring plan to use John Connor as bait to capture the T-X. Meanwhile, Paul remains under suspicion, since no one knows how the brainwashing may still affect him.

Capturing the T-X proves to be a deadly task with consequences nobody could foresee. The danger and suspense mount as Resistance action leads to an epic battle pitting human ingenuity and sheer courage against the coldblooded logic of machine intelligence. Fans of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines will not be disappointed.

“A lyrical work of self-discovery that’s shockingly intimate and insistently universal…Not so much briefly gorgeous as permanently stunning.” —Ron Charles, The Washington Post

Poet Ocean Vuong’s debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling

On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family’s history that began before he was born — a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam — and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity. Asking questions central to our American moment, immersed as we are in addiction, violence, and trauma, but undergirded by compassion and tenderness, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is as much about the power of telling one’s own story as it is about the obliterating silence of not being heard.

With stunning urgency and grace, Ocean Vuong writes of people caught between disparate worlds, and asks how we heal and rescue one another without forsaking who we are. The question of how to survive, and how to make of it a kind of joy, powers the most important debut novel of many years.
