Elizabeth Moon INTO THE FIRE CHAPTER ONE SLOTTER KEY, PORT MAJOR DAY 1 Ky Vatta stood looking out the upper-floor window of the Vatta home in Port Major, just above the entrance. Below, she could see the brick walk bordered by low shrubs pruned into balls, the perfect green lawn, the white-painted palings and gate through which she and Rafe had entered a few hours before. A chill draft came off the window, reminding her that she was still in the beach clothes shed put on before leaving Corleigh ...

Elizabeth Moon Divided Allegiance Prologue Long ago, before the elder folk were driven from the lands south of the Hakkenarsk, the elves who dwelt in those heights had found a valley more lovely than any other. The shape of its rock and the clarity of its water brought joy to all who saw it. There for a time the elves lived, and built as they rarely build, while the greatest among them sang to the taig of that place, and wakened it to its own power. Over long years they shaped it, singing one ...

Elizabeth Moon Change of Command For Susie and John Neary, for all the years of friendship. Acknowledgements As always, quite a few people helped with technical bits. Certain parts of this book could not have been written without the help of the fencing group I leave it to them to figure out who contributed which bit of necessary information or advice. David Watson helped choreograph some of the fights and advised on metallurgy, and Kathleen Jones did yeoman work in the structural engineering of ...

She was right. And for Ellen McLean, who refused to be my friend in the first grade, only to be a better friend later than anyone could ask. And for all the horses, from the horse next door to the little bay mare who presently has her nose in my feed bucket, who enriched my life with everything ...

A brisk wind tossed cold rain at the windows it hissed and rattled alternately. Yes Heris Serrano eyed her employer with some suspicion. The words minor problem had become an all too frequent catch-phrase between them. She resented the niggling delays that prevented their departure they should have been in space already, two days out on the voyage ...

VANCE by Dean Koontz In 1966, at 21, fresh from college, I was a fool and possibly deranged, although not seriously dangerous. I was a well-read fool, especially in science fiction. For twelve years, I pored through at least a book a week in that genre. I felt that I ...
