In the tradition of his New York Times bestseller, Napa, James Conaway picks up the story he began a decade ago. The Far Side of Eden offers "a fascinating look at the political side of the wine revolution that put California's Napa Valley on the world map" (Miami Herald). Now, Conaway reveals, Napa is awash in dollars generated by the boom economy and the social ambitions it inspired. The valley is beset by new arrivals determined to have vineyards of their own and by cult-wine producers in thrall to fabulously expensive "rocket juice" (cabernet sauvignon) that few locals can afford - while established families wish to hold on to the old ways, and camp followers get caught up in the glamour of it all. Conaway, long known for his controversial, compulsively readable social reporting, here "indicts the wave of new-money millionaires from Silicon Valley, who have brought with them gaudy displays of wealth -- building so-called 'McMansions' and planting 'vanity vineyards'" (Los Angeles Times). "A cautionary tale . . . [with] a seductive pull" (San Francisco Chronicle), The Far Side of Eden takes us to the frontlines of America's ongoing conflicts over money, land, and power to tell a story that has ramifications for us all.

Teenage Zastra is a big disappointment to her father, Leodra, ruler of Golmeira, because she hasn't got what it takes to become a mindweaver. Golmeira relies on its mindweavers, men and women who can manipulate the thoughts of others, to subdue its enemies. Zastra is still determined to prove herself worthy of her father’s respect, but it isn't easy when Leodra invites her uncle Thorlberd and his son Rastran to stay at Golmer Castle. Rastran is an unpleasant bully and Zastra feels fully justified in using her well-developed fighting skills to defend herself and her friends, only to incur her father's anger once more. In the middle of the night, Zastra is roused to discover that her father has been betrayed. Golmer Castle is swarming with soldiers, and the skies above it filled with monstrous flying beasts. As the battle turns against him, Leodra finally turns to Zastra and charges her with the care of her infant siblings. She escapes with the twins through the castle's ancient underground tunnels, only to be faced with a terrible choice. Hunted across the turbulent landscape of Golmeira, Zastra must rely on her wits and the help of strangers as she tries to outrun the powerful forces set upon her trail.

Renowned for exploring the social implications of modern technology, Howard Rheingold has been dubbed by MIT "the first citizen of the Internet." In this collection of funny, prescient, thought-provoking essays, originally published during the 1970s and 1980s, he offers a glimpse into the changes wrought during that explosive period. From the effects of the graphic user interface (GUI) not only on how we work but how we think, to "technarchist" movements that presaged both the hacker mentality and the anarchist idealism of Burning Man today, to a ground-floor view of the very earliest of what Rheingold was the first to dub virtual communities, his Excursions run the gamut from the silly to the profound. These essays remain fascinating, amusing, and relevant. "Most of my work in recent decades," Rheingold says, "has focused on the consequences of digital media and networked publics. Before the digital wave came along, I wrote about a more diverse range of subjects: What causes anger? What’s it like to be in a car crash? What’s insect sex like? Do invisible airborne chemicals affect behavior? Can we control our dreams? How will people get high in the future? Will money evolve into new forms? In the second decade of the twenty-first century, these short pieces re-present my explorations during my think about anything years to a wider public who may be familiar with my work on digital culture."

Marcus had been busy getting his gear together. Fortunately he had come off the ship with his tool belt. Everything in it was like pure gold. Along with two screw drivers, a pair of pliers an awl, some wire and some twine, he also had a good large pocket knife and a hunting knife. He would leave his belt and tools in Rondace with Hank but both knives would go with him. He had also spent time making fine strips of leather to braid for a really strong rope. Areels Aunt wove a good warm travel cloak for him. It would double as a blanket. He was given two horses and a donkey to travel with. He made nice leather leads for the horses, also made a heavy riding pad for his horse. It was a heavy pad for the horses back with a large pocket on each side that hung down in back of his legs. Though it was not strapped to the horse, the weight of the rider held it in place. He made a pack rack for the donkey out of braches and more braided leather straps to hold it in places.
