"great book highly recommended"
As a young boy, Diogenes Alejandro Xenos, witnesses the murder of his mother and sister by a band of marauders. As "Dax" grows to adulthood, he channels his fear and hatred into a desire for revolution, swearing revenge on those in power as he upsets the status quo. His actions make him an outlaw, living on the fringes of society in a land turned upside down with corruption. He is wanted by men and women alike-but for very different reasons.
"Sorry when it came to an end"
Humankind has expanded out into interstellar space using star gates-technological remnants left behind by an ancient, long-vanished race. But the technology comes with a price. Among the stars, humanity encountered the Fallers, a strange alien race bent on nothing short of genocide. It's all-out war, and humanity is losing.
"Good start to a trilogy - horrible narrator"
Kress returns to a future in which the human race is losing an interstellar war. A shipload of scientists from Earth is sent to study the artifact discovered on a distant planet. The artifact is not only a powerful weapon, but possibly the key to a lost superscience. This is an intense novel of war and science that expands Nancy Kress' already large audience.
Centered on the same world as Kresss Nebula Award-winning novelette, Flowers of Aulit Prison, the Probability Trilogy has already been recognized as her next great work by critics and readers alike. In Probability Space, humanity is losing the war with the alien Fallers. As the action moves from Earth to Mars to the farthest reaches of known space, four humans armed with little more than an unproven theory try to enter the Fallers home star system.
"A Disappointing and Lackluster Finale"
A high government official is shot on the street, and the hunt for the killer begins. The search leads all over the world, netting a series of suspects whose only connection is their innocence - at least of this crime. But The Case of Comrade Tulayev, the best novel about the Stalinist purges, is also a classic tale of risk and adventure that stands beside For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is a masterpiece, now available again after 30 years.
"Look behind stage at Russian "Trial""
Epi Dalmau is a desperate man. Early one morning, he carries a duffle bag into a dingy bar in a rough neighborhood of Barcelona. Four other people are in the bar: his brother Alex, his good friend Tanveer, the bartender, and a Pakistani man who wandered in to use the restroom. Epi grabs a hammer out of his duffle bag and attacks Tanveer. After a brief struggle and a couple of blows, Tanveer lies dead on the floor and Epi flees the bar. Alex and the bartender plan to find and protect Epi, while blaming the murder on the unfortunate Pakistani man, who was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
