Афина и Железный ГородСеребристый диск корабля заблестел новой звёздочкой на чёрном бархате пространства, плавно обогнув ночную сторону планеты. Лучи голубого светила окрасили пелену облаков в оттенки заснеженных зимних сумерек. Но вскоре показалось второе солнце, янтарное. Ледяные тона превратились в лазурь и аквамарин. Широкие дисплеи, занимавшие почти всю окружность просторной кабины со светло-серыми стенами, смягчали неистовую ...

Ellis Peters The Rose Rent Chapter One By reason of the prolonged cold, which lingered far into April, and had scarcely mellowed when the month of May began, everything came laggard and reluctant that spring of 1142. The birds kept close about the roofs, finding warmer places to roost. The bees slept late, depleted their stores, and had to be fed, but neither was there any early burst of blossom for them to make fruitful. In the gardens there was no point in planting seed that would rot or be ...

He didnt understand it, and he definitely didnt agree with it. Maybe it was true for some people, but not for him. In order for it to be true, he would have to have a home. And he didnt, not anymore. Looking at Carson City, Nevada, he felt nothing. Although he had lived here, it was just the place where his wife had been kidnapped, a ...

Probably the people who lived there called it something, but the tall young man didnt care about that. He just wanted a drink after riding all day in the baking New Mexico sun. One of the handful of buildings alongside the trail was a saloon, so that was all that mattered to him. He reined the dun over to the hitch rail in front ...

One Tanya Kaitlin shut off the water, stepped out of the shower and slowly dried herself before putting on her favorite black and white bathrobe. That done, she reached for the matching towel that hung from one of the small hooks behind her bathroom door and wrapped it around her beach-blonde hair, turban-style. Despite being only lukewarm, her shower had produced more than enough steam to completely mist up the large mirror on the wall just above the black granite counter basin. Tanya stepped ...

It rubbed his heel raw, the heel became infected and the doctor made him keep his foot elevated for six weeks. When he began to walk again, he had completed the first draft of a novel. The beginning was that simple. Except that in his unfinished autobiography he said that it was jaundice, not a heel infection, that kept him immobilized, and that he recovered ...
