Before becoming one of today's most intriguing and innovative mystery writers, Kate Wilhelm was a leading writer of science fiction, acclaimed for classics like The Infinity Box and The Clewiston Test. Now one of her most famous novels returns to print, the spellbinding story of an isolated post-holocaust community determined to preserve itself, through a perilous experiment in cloning. Sweeping, dramatic, rich with humanity, and rigorous in its science, Where Later the Sweet Birds Sang is widely regarded as a high point of both humanistic and "hard" SF, and won SF's Hugo Award and Locus Award on its first publication. It is as compelling today as it was then. Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang is the winner of the 1977 Hugo Award for Best Novel. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A Man Who Faces The Grim Future Of Early Onset Dementia Confronts The Nagging Demons Of His Past. Ethan Breen, a widower and middle-aged descendant of Irish immigrants, faces a growing personal crisis. He lives with his college-aged son, Kevin, on his ranch in Texas passed down from his grandfather and father . Ethan's life would appear comfortable, even idyllic. Ethan, however, is dogged by his own, private hell. He realizes that he is suffering the initial symptoms of early onset dementia, a condition that struck both his grandfather and father. He is contemplating killing himself, as his father did. "It is rare to find a truly original voice like that of Evan Moore, an author who is also a gifted story teller with a gripping, taut tale to tell, a story that reads like nonfiction for it rings so true and is so close to so many of us who are experiencing similar things in our life. It is a particular story, wedded to its time and place, and at the same time contains universal truths, a testament to the human spirit and the gifts of the author."-Ray Mouton, attorney, author of In God's House. “The title hints of poetry, perhaps mystery. Indeed long-time newsman and author Evan Moore deftly weaves these elements into Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang. It is the story of a man confronting his future - a future many of us will confront. But it’s also the story of a man looking at his past. You’ll want to skip to the last chapter before you finish. Don’t.”-Mary Moody, editor, photographer. “Evan Moore's pure writing sweeps us along a road trip of violent, if somewhat colorful, memories and a doubtful future, as he prepares to confront something so awful that most of us just hope it will somehow spare us.”-Ken Hammond, Emeritus Editor of Texas Magazine.

The alien spaceship landed in a cornfield. Its crew died rapidly, leaving only one survivor - a baby, conceived on an unknown world, carried in its mother's womb across space and delivered even as the mother died on a hostile Earth. But the alien woman had given birth to more than a child. With her last act she had bequeathed to the Earth that hated her and her kind decades of turmoil and strife that would come close to tearing the whole planet apart.

In a perilous future where disposable duplicate bodies fulfill every legal and illicit whim of their decadent masters, life is cheap. No one knows that better than Albert Morris, a brash investigator with a knack for trouble, who has sent his own duplicates into deadly peril more times than he cares to remember. But when Morris takes on a ring of bootleggers making illegal copies of a famous actress, he stumbles upon a secret so explosive it has incited open warfare on the streets of Dittotown. Dr. Yosil Maharal, a brilliant researcher in artificial intelligence, has suddenly vanished, just as he is on the verge of a revolutionary scientific breakthrough. Maharal's daughter, Ritu, believes he has been kidnapped-or worse. Aeneas Polom, a reclusive trillionaire who appears in public only through his high-priced platinum duplicates, offers Morris unlimited resources to locate Maharal before his awesome discovery falls into the wrong hands. To uncover the truth, Morris must enter a shadowy, nightmare world of ghosts and golems where nothing -and no one-is what they seem, memory itself is suspect, and the line between life and death may no longer exist. David Brin's Kiln People is a 2003 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In dire need of a job, Todd Fielding accepts the offer to work at The Brindle Times--even if she has to move to the lackluster town of Brindle. As she settles into her new home, Todd is fully prepared to adapt to the boredom of small-town life, but her preconceptions of Brindle are completely shattered when a local girl disappears. Even more shocking to Todd is the town's sheer indifference to the incident. No one--not even the police--appears particularly concerned. When Todd looks deeper into the story, she discovers that five other girls have "run away" from Brindle under strange circumstances over the past twenty years. As she sets out to uncover the history of a town that has cloaked itself in secrecy for far too long, evidence of manipulation and cold-blooded murder begin to unravel. And Todd may be the next victim to pay the deadly price of silence.
