On a far future space station, once each year, nano-engineered young women run genetically engineered tyrannosaurs in a race as brutal and bloody as any witnessed in the Roman Circus 3,000 years before. Egret thinks she is ready for this day. She has been brainwashed for it, trained for it, shaped and reshaped into a sacrificial model of beauty for the entertainment of millions. Her world is one of strict regimen and fierce competition, one in which others can only be competitors or worshippers, never friends.
"A Story of Maturity, Grace & Honor with Dinosaurs"
Marooned in an alien body on an alien world. It is the 25th century. The planet's most ambitious project is Starmind, an Islamic research institute that transfers the minds of volunteers, called Ansibles, across gulfs of space and time to make first contact with other sentient beings in the universe. Each of the Ansible stories follows one team of brave minds across the void. These are their reports, their transcripts, the only accounts of what they have found.
"Intriguing exploration of life"
After dying in a freak accident, Matt Cahill inexplicably "wakes up" three months later with the disturbing ability to see things - terrible things - that others cannot. Drafted as a warrior in the battle between good and evil, Matt will stop at nothing to destroy the malevolent Mr. Dark. In The Dead Man Volume 7, a trio of sinister new stories tracks the reluctant hero on his nightmarish quest.
Marked for sacrifice by her own father, a young woman flees to the hills, knowing her father may appear with his stone blade at any time to claim her - while the unburied dead of her people also hunt her in the low ravines. Guided by the memory of how her mother stood bravely against the dead, Jepthah's daughter begins her long flight in the dark.
The previous Ansibles found themselves marooned, but Zahid, last survivor of Ansible 15718, commands an interstellar fleet, and Sahira, the psionic savant we meet in Ansible: Night Land and Ansible: Strike Force, will take the battle to the pneumavores, humanity's fiercest predators.
