The Forge

Raj Whitehall was a young noble of the Civil Government, the last remnant of galactic civilization on the planet Bellevue. Possessed of an unparalleled strategic genius, Raj dreamed of leading his people’s armies to victory against the barbarians who threatened to engulf them. Yet it was not exterior enemies who were Raj’s greatest challenge, but the Civil Government itself. Its bureaucrats had become corrupt extortionists. The ranks of its armies were filled with barbarian mercenaries ready to turn on the paymasters they despised. Those at the highest levels sank their knives into each other’s backs even as the barbarians closed in. And the Governor himself, the man to whom Raj was sworn and given absolute loyalty, nourished a paranoid envy and mistrust that grew with every victory Ray won… Luckily for Bellevue, Raj had a hidden asset beyond the worship of his troops and his own genius for war. Raj was possessed of–or possessed by–a “guardian angel” that guided him inexorably toward the goal of planetary dominion. But could even a battle computer of the Galactic Age be enough to counter the fury of Raj’s enemies…and the treachery of his “friends”?

The Forest and the Farm

Billi has always been different, and how could he not be? A man with one leg was uncommon enough. Then a three-legged Hound, Rabbit, came from the Forest and sat by his wheelchair, and he had to learn to be a Hunter. Paired for life, Hunters and Hounds are vital to their Village for hunting and protection in the Forest. They share a wordless song which allows them to know each other’s moods and warn of danger. Rules about the Farm and Forest keep the villagers safe – no living tree can be cut, and any man without a Hound is prey once in the Forest.
But an unexpected turn of events leads Billi into new territory. A solitary life evolves as he explores the Forest and finds friends in unlikely places. Now Billi must learn about gifts, chasing, catching and sparkuls as he includes others in his life. Light on magic, but big on heart, Billi’s story rings a chord with anyone who’s ever felt they don’t fit in.
Join Billi on a world-building journey through a land you almost feel you recognize that still has the ability to surprise you.

For Your Eyes Only

‘Niet veel mensen zijn in staat werk en plezier zo goed te combineren als Mr Bond.’ – The Times Literary Supplement Plotselinge noodgevallen en mooie vrouwen die iets te verbergen hebben zijn dagelijkse kost in het leven van James Bond. Wanneer 007 zich met een zaak bezighoudt, staat er één ding vast: de spanning is om te snijden. Of het nu gaat om de liquidatie van een Cubaanse crimineel in de Verenigde Staten, het oprollen van een internationaal drugsnetwerk of een plotselinge dood op de Seychellen, Bond klaart de klus. Op zijn eigen, stijlvolle manier. De vijf magistrale Bond-verhalen in For Your Eyes Only maken dit voor eens en altijd duidelijk. Ian Fleming werd geboren op 28 mei 1908 in Londen. Hij bezocht Eton College en na een korte periode op de beroemde Royal Military Academy van Sandhurst trad hij in dienst van het persbureau Reuters. Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog werkte Fleming voor de marine-inlichtingendienst, waar hij van dichtbij kennismaakte met de spionagewereld die hij in zijn James Bond-boeken zou vereeuwigen. For Your Eyes Only, het achtste boek in de reeks, verscheen oorspronkelijk in 1960. Ian Fleming overleed in 1964.

For the Thrill of It

It was a crime that shocked the nation: the brutal murder in Chicago in 1924 of a child by two wealthy college students who killed solely for the thrill of the experience. Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb were intellectuals—too smart, they believed, for the police to catch them. When they were apprehended, state’s attorney Robert Crowe was certain that no defense could save the ruthless killers from the gallows. But the families of the confessed murderers hired Clarence Darrow, entrusting the lives of their sons to the most famous lawyer in America in what would be one of the most sensational criminal trials in the history of American justice. Set against the backdrop of the 1920s—a time of prosperity, self-indulgence, and hedonistic excess in a lawless city on the brink of anarchy— *For the Thrill of It* draws the reader into a world of speakeasies and flappers, of gangsters and gin parties, with a spellbinding narrative of Jazz Age murder and mystery.

For the New Intellectual

**Here is Ayn Rand’s first non-fiction work—a challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the “atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion” that they create.**
As incisive and relevant today as it was sixty years ago, this book presents the essentials of Ayn Rand’s philosophy “for those who wish to acquire an integrated view of existence.” In the title essay, she offers an analysis of Western culture, discusses the causes of its progress, its decline, its present bankruptcy, and points the road to an intellectual renaissance.
One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy—and ethic of rational self-interest—that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality—”a philosophy for living on Earth”—are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman for a new class,  *For the New Intellectual*. **

The Five Orange Pips

A young Sussex gentleman named John Openshaw has a strange story: in 1869 his uncle Elias Openshaw had suddenly come back to England to settle on an estate at Horsham, West Sussex after living for years in the United States as a planter in Florida and serving as a Colonel in the Confederate Army. Not being married, Elias had allowed his nephew to stay at his estate. Strange incidents have occurred; one is that although John could go anywhere in the house he could never enter a locked room containing his uncle’s trunks. Another peculiarity was that in March 1883 a letter postmarked Pondicherry, in India, arrived for the Colonel inscribed only “K.K.K.” with five orange pips enclosed. More strange things happened: Papers from the locked room were burnt and a will was drawn up leaving the estate to John Openshaw. The Colonel’s behaviour became bizarre. He would either lock himself in his room and drink or he would go shouting forth in a drunken sally with a pistol in his hand. On 2 May 1883 he was found dead in a garden pool.

Fists of Justice

The war is over. But the scars remain.
Emily’s New Learning has been good for Beneficence. In the years since she arrived on the Nameless World, the city has been at the forefront of technological advancement and social development. Thousands of newcomers are moving to the city, railways span the gorge and drive into Zangaria, the first steamboats are plowing the ocean wave and a whole new banking system is reshaping national and international trade. A true golden age appears to be on hand.
But all is not well. The city’s largest businessman may be on the verge of collapse, the city guilds are weakening, religious fanatics stalk the streets, and there are rumors that one of the Great Gods has returned to judge everyone. The streets are on edge. No one knows which way to turn.
Emily returns to Beneficence for Casper’s funeral before she goes back to school. But, as she is drawn into a political, social and religious meltdown, she finds herself dealing with the darker consequences of her innovations, people who blame her for the problems facing the city, religious fanatics, her boyfriend’s family …
… And a deadly plot from the dark past that may lead the Nameless World to utter ruin.

Fire and Ice

Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont is working a series of murders in which six young women have been wrapped in tarps, doused with gasoline, and set on fire. Their charred remains have been scattered around various dump sites, creating a grisly pattern of death across western Washington. At the same time, thousands of miles away in the Arizona desert, Cochise County sheriff Joanna Brady is looking into a homicide in which the elderly caretaker of an ATV park was run over and left to die. All the man has left behind is his dog, who is the improbable witness to some kind of turf warfare—or possibly something more sinister. Then a breakthrough in Beaumont’s case leads him directly to the Southwest and into Brady’s jurisdiction. When the two met on a joint investigation years earlier, sparks flew. Under different circumstances, both of them admit, even more could have happened. But here, as the threads of their two seemingly separate cases wind together, Beaumont and Brady must put aside echoes of their shared past as they are once again drawn into an orbit of deception. Except this time it’s not just their own lives that are in danger but those of the people closest to them as well.

Fire & Blood

**#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** ** *

Finding Infinity

“Finding Infinity” as described by Colin…
“Fine Charlie.” Colin says dropping his hands in defeat. “Here’s what I want. I want everybody to back off and let me play football. I want you to go back to practicing medicine because I’m ready for you to be happy again – not this forced shit that you keep trying to sell me. I want Brad to get his house finished because I’m tired of listening to his DIY project updates. I want Jenny to decide on a hair color. I want Aiden and Rachael to either figure their shit out or leave each other alone, because Aiden’s chick drama is annoying. I want Mark to quit trying so hard to be my buddy again. I want my parents to get off my back about us living in sin. I want you to pick a date to marry me. That’s what I want. What am I going to get? None of it, because I have to do another interview to try to patch the gaping wound that is my life with a Band-Aid.”
This is book three of the “Infinity Series.” To read them in order, please start with “Falling Into Infinity” and then “From Now Until Infinity.”
