Hunger and sleepless nights had knobbed his cheekbones and honed his chin to a sharp point. An almost visible air clung to him, a hot aura that seemed to result from veins full of lava and eyeballs spilling out a heat that could not be held within him. He had the face every transie had, the face of a man who was either burning with fever or who had seen a vision.

A mysterious romantic thriller set in the late 1940s, "Peripheral Lies" tells the story of how several lives become entangled in a government operation that includes a web of deceit, murder, and international crime. Laura Chandler is the number one suspect in the murder investigation of Mark Swenson, a wealthy businessman, and she doesn't know where to turn for help. Paul Lambert, an attorney who is clueless about the mysterious happenings in his own law office, is sure of one thing-his undeniable attraction to his new secretary, Sheila Connery. But Lambert's assistant has a secret-she is working for the FBI as one of the first female agents in history. Sheila has gone undercover to investigate the CIA's involvement in 'Operation Paperclip," a covert government maneuver to smuggle German rocket scientists and interrogation specialists out of Nazi Germany and into the United States. As Sheila defies the chauvinistic attitudes of the Deep South, she desperately hopes to discover who not only killed but mutilated her brother, Jimmy. Did Laura really kill Mark Swenson? In "Peripheral Lies," Sheila may find much more than she expects on the quest to find her brother's murderer.

This is a classic science fiction short story by Philip José Farmer. Set three centuries in the future around a far off star, there live humans and two other sentient hominids, the reptiles and the amphibians. All three life forms wear living cloaks, known as skins. These skins allow them to communicate with each other via telepathy, and provide them with empathy and a conscience – one which gives them electric shocks should they step out of line. Rastignac takes exception to the skins and embarks on a mission to overthrow them. This work is part of our Vintage Sci-Fi Classics Series, a series in which we are republishing some of the best stories in the genre by some of its most acclaimed authors, such as Isaac Asimov, Harry Harrison, and Robert Sheckley. Each publication is complete with a short introduction to the history of science fiction.

As the 20th century dawns, the world is transformed in dizzying ways. But nestled in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains is a place, and a family, out of time—where one young girl will grow to face the challenges of each generation before her—and discover whether she has the strength to overcome them… The eldest surviving daughter of Anna Guinn, Rachel rarely ventures far from her home in the Appalachians, aside from an occasional trip into town to trade a penny for a peppermint stick. Sometimes she yearns for more, but as much as she fears her mother’s unstable mind, she is anchored by the strength of her grandmother, Willa. Freed from an abusive marriage, Willa holds the family together through hardship, all the while fulfilling her role as keeper of her neighbors’ carefully guarded secrets—the most painful of which may be her own. In this isolated, eccentric world where people depend on moonshine to put food on the table, hang talismans to chase away ghosts—and tragedy can strike as suddenly as a coiled copperhead—Rachel wonders what life has in store. Most of all, she worries whether she and her sister have inherited the darkness that lurks inside their mother. Her one respite is the town’s apple orchard, the ally she finds there—and the revelation that she can take her destiny into her own hands, decide what to leave behind—and what is truly worth carrying into the future…
