    Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power - which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood. On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

    North Power Air is in trouble. Their aircraft are crashing at an alarming rate and no one can figure out the cause. Desperate for an answer, they turn to Waldo, a crippled misanthropic genius who lives in a home in orbit around Earth, where the absence of gravity means that his feeble muscle strength does not confine him helplessly in a wheelchair. But Waldo has little reason to want to help the rest of humanity - until he learns that the solution to Earth’s problems also holds the key to his own.

    Story

    Using superstition and magic to create an even reading field for 2 short stories.

    I always believe a wise man should glance over his sholder before changing lanes. Glance back in history before making the same mistakes or repeating them.

    Heinlien removes science of the 1950s, to tell a good story of science fiction, but needed to remove science fact (still too new in a time line and in scope) and uses magic to replace science fact in electrigal grids, electronics of heated plates in picture tubes, voice coils, amplification, circuit boards, etc… Way, way too new in history to make the magic believable back then. But, he took a gamble with his story (1st of it's kind) and got published - won!

    Write a story like that today, it would suck big time! He took a gamble, won!

    In Our Friends from Frolix 8, the world is run by an elite few. And what determines whether one is part of the elite isn’t wealth or privilege, but brains. As children, every citizen of Earth is tested; some are found to be super-smart New Men and some are Unusuals with various psychic powers. The vast majority are Undermen, performing menial jobs in an overpopulated world.

    Story

    I've never tried to figure out rights from wrongs, too weak or strong, I'm dyslexic with memory disorders and pain from degenerate disc desease. I'm listening to get out of my head and so far his writing style creates religous thoughts for the reader (me) to evaluate which side I should consider. No other writers do this more than him! I'm sorry, i'd rather stick to Isaac Assmov (sorry the spelling) Henlein, A C. Clarke, Alan Dean Foster and many more. They are not easy to read either but by the end of the book the ride worked.

    Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten-a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets....

    Story

    I love this book and I like this writer. When J. J. Abbrams and Lenard Nimoy go to this guy to restart "Star Trek", that must say a lot about this writer. With that in mind, what happens when you start a trilogy and there is only one book recorded out of 3? My problem is with 2 non-recorded books and I'm dyslexic! What do I do and where is there blame to point too?

    Go figure I won't, I'm dyslexic!

  • The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick

    Based on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is the magnificent and imaginative final work of an author who dedicated his life to questioning the nature of reality and perception, the malleability of space and time, and the relationship between the human and the divine. Edited and introduced by Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, this is the definitive presentation of Dick’s brilliant, and epic, work.

    Story

    Testament the Holy book doesn't make good sci-fi. It's a good fantasy book, but a very hard read for me. Dick uses too many five dollar words and with inflation $50.00 today. the narration is good.
