Rendezvous with Rama Arthur Clarke


Nebula Best Novel winner (1974) Hugo Best Novel winner (1974) At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind’s first encounter with alien intelligence. It will kindle their wildest dreams… and fan their darkest fears. For no one knows who the Ramans are or why they have come. And now the moment of rendezvous awaits—just behind a Raman airlock door.


Sleeping With Fear Kay Hooper


New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper saves the best for last in the almost unbearably intense conclusion to her spellbinding Fear Trilogy, which already has over one million copies of the first two books in print. Agent Riley Crane of the FBI's Special Crimes Unit is used to dealing with bizarre situations and violent death, but when she wakes up alone, head pounding and covered in blood – human blood – she knows she's entered a new kind of nightmare. The trouble is, that's all she knows. With the last two weeks of her life wiped from her memory, Riley's in the middle of an undercover operation where friend and foe look terrifyingly alike, and where the murderer could be someone close to her. Perhaps someone she loves. Perhaps even…herself.


Playing With Fire (tales of an extra ordinary girl) Gena Showalter

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Stieg Larsson


Once you start The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there's no turning back. This debut thriller-the first in a trilogy from the late Stieg Larsson-is a serious page-turner rivaling the best of Charlie Huston and Michael Connelly. Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch-and there's always a catch-is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson's novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don't want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo.

The Girl who played with Fire Stieg Larsson


Stieg Larsson gleaned a remarkable degree of success before his too-early death in 2004. He had delivered to his publisher three remarkable crime novels; the initial book in his ‘Millennium’ sequence, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, had enjoyed an unprecedented success in his native Sweden before the translation took the UK by storm. Larsson had made a considerable mark as a crusading journalist, with a speciality in tackling political extremist groups. But he offered assistance to many people and groups who he felt were vulnerable – something of a modern hero, in fact. One of Larsson's key achievements as a writer was to create an innovative kind of heroine for the crime novel. His unconventional sleuth, the highly intelligent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, is a confrontational young woman, whose Goth accoutrements sometimes alienate those around her (except the individuals she opts to have sexual relations with – strictly, that is, according to the rules she lays down). In…


Forbidden Nights with a Vampire Kerrelyn Sparks


Vanda has a tiny anger problem. Nothing major. She has been known to destroy a room — or three — when something doesn't go her way, but who hasn't? That's no reason to force her into anger management! But that's just what the head vamps decide she needs. Once she gets there, things go from bad to worse. Because while Vanda lets the little things get her down, she has a very good reason not to trust her new sponsor, Phil…or anyone of his kind. Phil has made a place for himself with the vampires. They're the only ones who understand what it's like to be different and the fact that they would take in a werewolf like him means they have his loyalty forever. But even that loyalty can be tested, and Vanda is certainly the one to do it. Her seeming uncontainable rage at werewolves is unbearable — especially as Phil starts to realize that his feelings for her go far beyond friendship. But can he convince her to let go of the trauma of her past so she can learn to love him for who he is?

Changing with Families - A Book About Further Education For Being Human Richard Bandler


The process of writing this book was, for the three of us, an opportunity to change and grow and integrate parts of our experience of doing family therapy and individual therapy. We came to understand explicitly how the communications skills we use in those contexts applied to writing this book together. Taking three very different models of the world, three different types of background, we found a way to use those same communication skills to communicate with each other and then finally to translate the communication we found effective among the three of us onto paper. So, we wanted to tell those of you who are reading this book that this book contains some of the ways which we found delightful and useful to use to communicate not only with families in the context of therapy, but also with each other in the process of writing. The very same patterns that we identify in this book as patterns of effective communication with members of a family in the context of'a therapy session are precisely…


Tuesdays with Morrie: an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson Mitch Albom


Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher. Someone older who understood you when you were young and searching, who helped you see the world as a more profound place, and gave you advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of your mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Tuesdays With Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift to the world.
