DESCRIPTION:

The acclaimed modern science fiction masterpiece, Hugo Award winner for Best Series!

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space–and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe–in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.

Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.

Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy–exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs–an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.

Also included on Library Journal's Best SFF of 2016, the Barnes & Nobles Sci-Fi Fantasy Blog Best Books of 2015, the Tor.com Best Books of 2015, Reader’s Choice, as well as nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Kitschie, and the Bailey's Women's Prize.

3. SHOULD EDUCATORS AND PARENTS FOSTER, CULTIVATE, OR CURE such “dreamers”? And if the former, How?

DESCRIPTION:

⚠ Our existence is fragile. I learned that in many intricate ways, so I do not take today for granted. I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not even know if tomorrow will come.

◆ On the eve of Thanksgiving 2016, I received the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. Next to dying, I fear the spread of cancer to my brain and losing my ability to think, speak, or write. This loss would be devastating to me. ◆

  • The fragility of our life made me want to be authentic. Therefore, I am writing this memoir to be authentic–we become our true selves when we author who we are.
  • I am afraid of being forgotten. Death does frighten me. But more than dying, I am scared of having no one remember me or, even worse, of being recognized differently from who I was. At the same time, I have never thought that I was entitled to ask others not to forget me. But, not to be forgotten is precisely what I yearn for. ★
  • While I am writing for the other, I am simultaneously writing for myself. I am one of the readers and will test the subject as it gets written. My criteria are stricter. I want to say, “This is my narrative.” 

♥ I need to be able to say, “This is my narrative.” ♥

When God The Maker cracks a joke, we have explosive interracial sex exploit that makes Fifty Shades look tame.

Is her story of orgasmic discovery more sinister, enabled by Lucifer the Devil?

Katheryn Kellington is the American Eve and Massai Mobuku the African Adam.

DESCRIPTION:

I’m focused, which is a good thing and a really bad thing too.

My job has my attention. It should. I have a son to provide for.

Unfortunately, I don’t have much time for the boy.

Hiring a nanny is a must after he gets into some trouble that leaves me needing extra eyes on him.

But the woman I hire is everything I want in my life and in my bed.

A job takes me overseas and I have no choice but to offer her a great opportunity to go with us.

I don’t have time for family so I sure as hell don’t have time for love.

Funnily enough, love didn’t ask.

I’m drowning in desire around this vixen and falling for her more and more every day.

Watching her with my boy leaves me wanting so much more than a work arrangement with her.

But she’s protecting herself because she can’t have kids and is worried a good man won’t accept that.

She’s dead wrong. I’m getting her to leave that old life of condemnation and come follow me to something better.

Love. Warmth. Smoking-hot heat.
