While the Rankan Empire faces a crisis, the original Stepsons have returned to take back what is theirs. And then there is the matter of a witch and an army of undead . . . Things are heating up in this action-packed world of sword and sorcery. Prepare yourself for adventure in this shared-world anthology featuring stories by some of fantasy’s best authors, including Janet Morris, C. J. Cherryh, Diane Duane, Robin W.

Book Short Summary:

Belly up to Thieves’ World®’s favorite bar for tales told by such fantasy stars as Philip José Farmer, David Drake, Janet Morris, and others. In the second shared-world anthology of the Thieves’ World® series, we see “the gods themselves taking a hand in the fight for the hearts, minds and souls of the citizens of Sanctuary” (Fantasy-Faction). Via contributions from Philip José Farmer, David Drake, Lynn Abbey, A.E. van Vogt, Janet Morris, Andrew J. Offutt, and Robert Lynn Asprin, you’ll revisit the nefarious characters of Sanctuary, including One-Thumb, the proprietor of the Vulgar Unicorn; Regli, a nobleman; Illyra, the seer; Hanes, the thief; the crime lord, Jubal; and introducing Tempus Thales, the immortal mercenary. “It’s the best kind of sequel, the kind which was not meticulously planned from the start, unlike the deliberate megafranchises being created today, which may be plotted out for a decade in advance of the launch. . . . An important book in the series . . . Many elements which will be exploited to huge degree and cast a huge shadow over later pages are introduced here for the first time. . . . In some ways, it provides an anticipatory, even direct, model for the grimdark of the nineties which would follow.” —World of Antra

A whirlwind of fantasy action and adventure descends on Thieves’ World®—as related by C. J. Cherryh, Diana L. Paxson, Andrew J. Offutt, and others.

In Storm Season, immortal warrior Tempus Thales and his nemesis, the crime lord Jubal, go head to head in fast-paced exploits that bring the simmering tension between them to a boil. “Much of Storm Season pertains to the conflict between Asprin’s gladiator/crime lord Jubal and Morris’ Tempus, and the other stories work to move this plotline along, while telling their own tales. Offutt, as usual, steals the show with a Shadowspawn story . . .” —Fantasy-Faction

Book Short Summary:

The third thrilling installment of the Heir Chronicles series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cinda Williams Chima. The covenant that was meant to keep the wizard wars at bay has been stolen, and Trinity must prepare for attack. Everyone is doing their part—Seph is monitoring the Weirwalls, Jack and Ellen are training their ghostly army, even Anaweir Will and Fitch are setting booby traps around the town's perimeter. But to Jason Haley it seems like everyone wants to keep him out of the action. He may not be the most powerful wizard in Trinity, but he's prepared to fight for his friends. Everything changes when Jason finds a powerful talisman—a huge opal called the Dragonheart—buried in a cave. The stone seems to sing to Jason's very soul, showing him that he is meant for more than anyone knew. Moral compasses spin out of control as a final battle storms through what was once a sanctuary for the gifted. With so much to lose, what will the people of Trinity be willing to fight for—and what will they sacrifice?

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times Bestselling novel is now available in modern digital formats, featuring a new, substantive Foreword by Justice Samuel Alito. This book is universally considered to be an unusual, fascinating, and well-written observation of the life of a man who was first a war hero and Medal of Honor winner from the Korean War, then Chief Justice of the United States, later a monk reeling from tragedy, and finally elected to be Pope: Pope Francis I, in fact. His exciting life is described by three men who 'knew him well.' The first narrator is a Marine, telling of their time together in Korea. A constitutional scholar and Supreme Court Justice, appalled at the new Chief Justice, narrates the second phase. The third is a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church: fat, kind, but distracted. The Marine cares for him the most, the Supreme Court Justice condescends and despises him, and the Cardinal is much more interested in food than his subject. But Declan Walsh was a man who earned the Medal of Honor while ordering the death of friends, ruled pragmatically and energetically on the Court but lost his way to death and neglect, and became a miraculous healer, assassinated for challenging the powers that rule the secular world. New ebook edition features proper formatting, active and detailed Table of Contents, and linked notes and URLs in Justice Alito's extensive and informative introduction. What makes this book extraordinary is that it proves itself by paradox — reconciling and weaving together strong, seemingly incompatible elements into a cohesive, memorable work quite unlike any other in recent fiction. Ambitious in length and scope, the stage is nothing less than the contemporary world, its recent history and prophecy; while the focus, from several points of view, is clearly upon a single man — an American — who rises to become Bishop of Rome.
