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.

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 this provocative new novel, the author of Root, Petal, Thorn offers a powerful story of resilience, hope, and the secrets that, no matter how deeply hidden, can shape and ultimately unite a family. What connects us to one another? Is it shared history? Is it ancestry? Is it blood? Or is it love? People respond to tragedy in different ways. Some try to move on. Some don’t move at all. A year after her young son’s death due to a rare genetic disease, Emma Hazelton is still frozen by grief, unable and unwilling to consider her husband Noah’s suggestion that they try to have another child. As the future Emma once imagined crumbles, her family’s past comes into sharp relief. Searching for the roots of her son’s disease, Emma tries to fit together the pieces in her genealogical puzzle. Hidden within an old wedding photograph of her great-grandparents is an unusual truth Emma never guessed at—a window into all the ways that love can be surprising, generous, and fiercely brave . . . and a discovery that may help her find her own way forward at last. Praise for Root, Petal, Thorn “Root, Petal, Thorn mixes history and genealogy into a believable novel.” —RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick “Olsen’s ambitious debut is full of heart and hope.” —Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family Home “Five women. Five complicated lives. One house where they all live over a period of one hundred years. In this story, the walls talk. Wonderful, compelling saga!” —Cathy Lamb, author of My Very Best Friend and The Language of Sisters

The case against young Travis Morgan is simple: he walked into his father's house and shot the man at his desk in front of two witnesses. The fact that the murdered man was not his father is immaterial: he still killed a man in cold blood. Although he admits to a passionate hatred and fear of his father, Travis swears he is innocent. This is the case attorney Barbara Holloway is presented with. The trouble is she believes Travis, even though the eyewitness accounts appear irrefutable. As Barbara digs deeper, the case explodes into a dangerous conspiracy, causing Frank, Barbara's father and part-time associate, to hire a bodyguard to protect her.

Overview In this provocative reassessment of one of the most controversial figures of twentieth-century American politics, Michael Knox Beran shows how Bobby Kennedy was shaped by values of the aristocratic class to which he had been brought up to belong. He was one of them - until he realized that the welfare state they had helped to create at home and the empire they had helped to found abroad were undermining some of America's most cherished traditions. In denouncing the welfare system as a "second-rate set of social services" and "hand-outs," and in questioning the imperial commitments that the patricians made in places like Vietnam, Bobby Kennedy was a prophet who accurately foresaw the changing direction of American politics. Challenging the work of Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Jack Newfield, and others, Beran demonstrates that Bobby was neither a pious liberal martyr nor a would-be revolutionary. He was a man who drew on the wisdom of Emerson, the ancient Greeks, and his own father's ideas about the transformative power of free markets - and used them to create a compelling vision of a better America.
