Earth refugees threaten a peaceful space settlement in this influential novel from the Golden Age science fiction author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. More than two thousand years in the future, a small human colony thrives on the ocean paradise of Thalassa—sent there centuries ago to continue the human race before Earth’s destruction. Thalassa’s resources are vast—and the human colony has lived a bucolic life there. But their existence is threatened when the spaceship Magellan arrives on their world—carrying one million refugees from Earth, fleeing the dying planet. Reputed to be Arthur C. Clarke’s favorite novel, The Songs of Distant Earth addresses several fascinating scientific questions unresolved in their time—including the question of why so few neutrinos from the sun have been measured on Earth. In addition, Clarke presents an inventive depiction of the use of vacuum energy to power spacecraft—and the technical logistics of space travel near the speed of light. “Clarke’s simple, musical style never falters in this novel, which is a sobering yet far from bleak commentary on humanity’s longing for the stars. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

Dublin, some years from now, and the President of the United States has just been assassinated during a state dinner in his honour. The official account has already taken hold but a hawk-eyed octogenarian named Monk, believing that there's nothing that cannot be known, has a version of his own -- a dark and twisted tale of both the watcher and the watched. "Nothing gets past a man as invisible as me," he says, introducing us to a cast of damaged characters he has kept under the strictest surveillance for years. Chief among them is Schroeder, recently sacked from Trinity College, where he once taught the Presidential daughter, and is now wandering the city streets in a medicated fugue as sinister and violent events begin to take control of his life. But this, says Monk, is no thriller or invented tale of suspense. It is, he insists, an honest and faithful record of breakage and distress at a time when dysfunction -- personal, local, national, global and even cosmic -- pervades all. A time when everything is already broken and when, in many ways, the shooting of a pill-popping President is neither here nor there. The only thing that matters, Monk tells us, is the truth. And this is why, stationed high in his attic room with a Stoli in a highball, he does what he does. "There's divinity in it," he says. "And a modicum of love."

“It’s not possible to ever know enough about the love of God.” Chris DuPré, acclaimed worship leader, musician, and speaker, shares his story of growing up in small-town, Upstate New York with his unpredictable dad, a WWII vet struggling with PTSD before PTSD was diagnosable. Even amid financial frailty and a broken family, Chris DuPré traces the finger of God that, against all odds, led him through emotional and physical abuse in childhood to a miraculous conversion in adolescence during the Jesus Movement, and, years later, to a pivotal decision in a garden between two options: love or bitterness. Written with candor, humor, and grace, this is a narrative of forgiving those before us and loving those around us that every Christian will instantly recognize. Although names may change, the cosmic story remains the same: we can love because He first loved us—with a wild, cleansing, transformative love.
