Dragonquest

**’Anne McCaffrey, one of the queens of science fiction, knows exactly how to give her public what it wants’** *The Times*
*________*
Another Turn, and the deadly silver Threads began falling again. So the bold dragonriders took to the skies and their magnificent dragons swirled and swooped in space, belching flames that destroyed the shimmering strands before they reached the ground.
But F’lar knew he had to find a better way to protect the peoples and lands of Pern, and he had to find it before the rebellious Oldtimers could breed any more dissent…before his brother F’nor would be foolhardy enough to launch another suicide mission…and before the mercurial fire lizards could cause even more trouble.

Dove Va Il Mondo?

Difficile sbagliare le previsioni a brevissimo termine, perché il futuro immediato è già qui. Meno coinvolgente il vaticinio su ciò che capiterà nel lungo periodo, quando non ci saremo più. Così la vera sfida è centrare i pronostici a medio termine. L’hanno persa con disonore coloro che appena l’altro ieri facevano a gara a rassicurarci sulla ripresa dell’economia mondiale. È da tutt’altra prospettiva che muovono quattro tra i maggiori «obiettori di crescita» nel ragionare sul decennio che ci aspetta. Serge Latouche, Yves Cochet, Jean-Pierre Dupuy e Susan George giudicano ineluttabile il declino dell’ordine economico neoliberale e non distolgono lo sguardo dal baratro che si sta spalancando. Anzi, tra loro c’è chi rivendica il «catastrofismo illuminato» come l’unico esercizio previsionale all’altezza della situazione. L’idea è che non si possa sfuggire all’alternativa: decrescita o barbarie.

Doubleblind

It’s not easy to tread lightly wearing steel-toed boots.
Sirantha Jax isn’t known for diplomatic finesse. As a “Jumper” who navigates ships through grimspace, she’s used to kicking ass first and taking names later—much later. Not exactly the obvious choice to sell the Conglomerate to the Ithtorians, a people whose opinions of humans are as hard as their exoskeletons.
And Ithiss-Tor council meetings aren’t the only place where Ambassador Jax needs to maneuver carefully. Her lover, March, is frozen in permanent “kill” mode, and his hair-trigger threatens to sabotage the talks—not to mention their relationship.
But Jax won’t give up on the man or the mission. With the Outskirts beleaguered by raiders, pirates, and the flesh-eating Morgut, an alliance with Ithiss-Tor may be humanity’s only hope.
Which has Jax wondering why a notorious troublemaker like her was given the job

Double Full

Up and coming football hero, Colt Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.
Jace Montgomery single-handedly built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?
