Irrational Numbers by George Alec Effinger

Original Title: Irrational Numbers

The death of a pet fish signals an ominous threat of wordwide tragedy... Delta Company “plays” out a war light years away... A running back for the Cleveland Browns gives his all to relive a night from his past… In IRRATIONAL NUMBERS, as with much of his work, author George Alec Effinger straddles the line between allegorical fantasy and science fiction. It’s a vein Effinger mines for a deep, meaningful understanding of human nature. Challenging and disquieting in the way only the best fiction can be, this collection of eight magnificent pieces of fiction will have readers clamoring for more. George Alec Effinger was a true master of satirical Science Fiction. Before his death in 2002, he gained the highest esteem amongst his peers for his pitch-perfect stylistic mimicry and his great insight into the human condition. Despite a life filled with chronic illness, Effinger was a prolific novelist and short story writer, earning multiple Nebula and Hugo Award nominations.

Gardener S Guide To September October Wildflowers by Paul R. Wonning

Original Title: Gardener S Guide To September October Wildflowers

This wildflower identification guide includes over twenty common fall blooming wildflowers with photographs. Gardener’s Guide to September/October Wildflowers allows easier identification of wildflowers in the field because it is composed only of the late summer and early fall. Late summer blooming wildflowers tend to be flowers of the vast great American prairie. The prairies occupied the interior of the North American continent and supported a cornucopia of flowers, grasses and herbs. The prairies have disappeared and these former prairie wildflowers now occupy sunny meadows and roadsides throughout the Midwest. fall, guide, field, identification, wildflower, indiana, autumn

Age Of Wonders by David G. Hartwell

Original Title: Age Of Wonders

Age of Wonders: Exploring the World of Science Fiction gives an insider's view of the strange and wonderful world of science fiction, by one of the most respected editors in the field, David G. Hartwell (1941-2016). David G. Hartwell edited science fiction and fantasy for over twenty years. In that time, he worked with acclaimed and popular writers such as Robert A. Heinlein, Poul Anderson, Frank Herbert, Roger Zelazny, Robert Silverberg, Gene Wolfe, Nancy Kress, L.E. Modesitt, Terry Bisson, Lisa Goldstein, and Philip Jose Farmer, and discovered hot new talents like Kathleen Ann Goonan and Patrick O'Leary. Now in Age of Wonder, Hartwell describes the field he loved, worked in, and shaped as editor, critic, and anthologist. Like those other American art forms, jazz, comics, and rock 'n' roll, science fiction is the product of a rich and fascinating subculture. Age of Wonder is a fascinating tour of the origins, history, and culture of the science fiction world, written with insight and genuine affection for this wonder-filled literature, and addressed to newcomers and longtime SF readers alike. Age of Wonder remains "the landmark work" Roger Zelazny called the first edition. The book contains sections that offer advice on teaching courses in science fiction, disquisitions on the controversial subgenre of hard SF, and practical explanations of the economics of publishing science fiction and fantasy. Age of Wonder still lives up to Hugo and Nebula Award winner Vonda McIntyre's description: "An entertaining and provocative book that will inspire discussion and argument for years to come." At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
