Christopher Cartwright Habitat Zero Prologue South Pacific Ocean Two Weeks Ago The extravagant pleasure cruiser tore through the light blue waters surrounding the constellation of tiny islands and atolls that made up Micronesia as though it were a racecar.

Thomas Sowell Knowledge and Decisions Man is no Aristotelian god contemplating all existence at one glance. Walter Lippmann PREFACE TO THE 1996 EDITION As of the time when it was first published in 1980, Knowledge and Decisions was by far my most important and most comprehensive book. None of my subsequent writings has surpassed it, though it has been joined by work of comparable scope in A Conflict of Visions in 1987 and Race and Culture in 1994. The re-publication of Knowledge and Decisions ...

Bertie Changes His Mind by P. G. Wodehouse It has happened so frequently in the past few years that young fellows starting in my profession have come to me for a word of advice, that Ive found it convenient now to condense my system into a brief formula. Resource and Tactthat is my motto. Tact, of course, has always been with me a sine qua non: while as for resource, I think I may say that I have usually contrived to show a certain modicum of what I might call finesse in handling those little ...

Revueltas was not a student in the late 1960s. He was then fifty-four years old ...

John Moralee FUTURE IMPERFECT A Collection of Science Fiction Stories Yellow Stars One night my sleep was disturbed by a thunderous boom. It rattled every window in my bedroom and sent my heart racing. I sat up, momentarily confused, my dreams swirling with reality in my head. For a second, I thought my mother was still there, taking me as a little girl for a long and sunny walk in the woods beyond our village. But then I remembered she had gone, and cold, hard reality slammed down. That joyous ...

Austin Aragon TRAVESTY Authors Note Writing is fun, getting paid for it is not. Or better said, its not easy whatsoever to make money off it, and more so its not really fun to turn a passion into a job. This book was rejected by numerous agents for being too controversial in todays subjective market. Well I suspect the other side of that coin is that I am also a new author, but I do like to think that they only mean this current novel is too radical or touchynot my writing So with a dead end ...
