COYOTE RISING is the dramatic sequel to COYOTE, the story of Earth's first extra-solar colonists. The starship Alabama, bound for the new world of Coyote, was hijacked by it's crew in a desperate bid for freedom from the repression of a post-US world order on earth. They then had to flee their homes with the arrival of a new batch of colonists, this time ruled by a repressive government embodying all of Earth's problems and prejudices. Now, the iron-fisted colonial governor is building a bridge to exploit the virgin territory where the Alabama's crew are believed to have resettled. But a movement is underway to reclaim Coyote for those who truly love freedom - a full-scale rebellion in which the men and women on both sides of the fight will learn the true price of liberty.

The gunshot that put Carlos Sullivan in a coma incapacitated him for weeks, but it didn't rob him of his intuition. His sense that another terrorist cell had formed was right on the money. Sullivan and his FBI team have plenty of experience with the Wallace family, but the new Coyote clan is largely an unknown. This unfamiliar group is composed of the four Foster children. Their leader, William Foster, infiltrated Maine law enforcement as a state trooper. His sisters, the twins, have an interest in explosives. And his brother, Sean, who was crippled by an accident in El Salvador, is a cyber expert. With their combined skills, they wreak a lot of havoc throughout Maine and Massachusetts. Sullivan finds friends and colleagues falling dead at his feet. Between the Fosters and his own dark secret, can he ever hope to make it out alive? Coyote Rising is the riveting finale of the Coyote Wars series. It's heaped with tension, and countless twists and turns will keep you guessing until the very last page. An FBI agent himself, Michael De La Pe�a wrote this series to show the true nature of the FBI and the teamwork that makes success possible.

With a gift for visionary fiction that “would make Robert A. Heinlein proud” (Entertainment Weekly) three-time Hugo Award-winning author Allen Steele now imagines an alternate history rooted in an actual historical possibility: what if the race to space had occurred in the early days of WWII? It's 1941, and Wernher von Braun is ordered by his Fuehrer to abandon the V2 rocket and turn German resources in a daring new direction: construction of a manned orbital spacecraft capable of attacking the U.S. Work on the rocket—called Silbervogel—begins at Peenemunde. Though it is top secret, British intelligence discovers the plan, and brings word to Franklin Roosevelt. The American President determines that there is only one logical response: the U.S. must build a spacecraft capable of intercepting Silbervogel and destroying it. Robert Goddard, inventor of the liquid-fuel rocket, agrees to head the classified project. So begins a race against time—between two secret military programs and two brilliant scientists whose high-stakes competition will spiral into a deadly game of political intrigue and unforeseen catastrophes played to the death in the brutal skies above America.

In 1999, with Forge's publication of The Buckskin Line, Elmer Kelton launched a series of novels on the formative years of the Texas Rangers. In Texas Justice, the first three of these critically acclaimed books are now brought together in a single volume. In The Buckskin Line, Kelton introduces the red-haired boy captured by a Comanche war party after the massacre of his family. Rescued by Mike Shannon, a member of a Texas "ranging company" protecting settlers from Indian raids, the boy known as Rusty is adopted by the Shannon family. In 1861, Mike Shannon is ambushed and killed, and Rusty follows in his footsteps and joins the Rangers. In the throes of the coming War Between the States, Rusty searches for the Confederates who lynched his adoptive father and awaits meeting the Comanche warrior who killed his family two decades past. At the end of the Civil War, Rusty Shannon is thrown adrift when the Rangers are disbanded, and makes his way to his home on the Red River, where he hopes to marry the girl he left behind, Geneva Monahan. But as Badger Boy, the second novel of the saga, unfolds, Geneva has married another man in Rusty's absence. Faced with this betrayal, he must contend with the hate-filled Confederate and Union soldiers infesting Texas and with the continuing Indian raids against innocent settlers. Rusty's own childhood captivity returns to haunt him when he rescues Andy, a white child called Badger Boy by his Comanche captors. In The Way of the Coyote, Andy rides with Rusty Shannon as the Rangers are re-formed in postwar turmoil. With Texas overrun with outlaws, disenfranchised Confederate veterans, nightriders, and marauding Comanche bands, Rusty tries to resume his pre-war life. When his friend Shanty, a freed slave, is burned out of his home by Ku Klux Klan and Rusty's own homestead is confiscated by a murderous band of thugs, he must follow perilous trails before he can put the war and its aftermath behind him. Texas Justice is not only a masterful re-creation of the early years of the Texas Rangers, it is vintage Elmer Kelton, the undisputed master of the Western story.

This is a REVISED EDITION of Mercury Rising by Deldon Anne McNeely, and includes an index. Female trickster figures have been a universal theme from Scheherazade to Mata Hari to the sirens of the silver screen. Mercury Rising examines our sense of of order and morality and considers it from a post-Jungian feminist perspective. Tricksters can teach us the nature of femininity and evil, and provide for us the spark that makes life more full and rewarding. This is destined to be a seminal book on understanding the trickster figures in human idiosyncrasies and what is often misunderstood as "evil."

The rolling, billowing, delicate landscape of Nebraska?s Sandhills; the tombstone of Billy the Kid?stolen so often that it must be caged and shackled?in Fort Sumner, New Mexico; an intercontinental ballistic missile trundling down a highway under heavy guard in Weld County, Colorado; cottonwoods and cranes, faded hotels and abandoned trailers painted aqua and purple; the ghosts of Pawnees, Cheyennes, and Kiowas and generations of settlers whose descendants now grouse in a cafä in Heimdahl, North Dakota, or roar off to a bikers convention in Sturgis, South Dakota. These are some of the things that catch Merrill Gilfillan?s eye and ear in this radiant collection of essays. ø Written with a poetic economy that often attains grandeur, Magpie Rising is an exhilarating tour of the Great Plains?its geography, wildlife, history, mythology, and food, its vast spaces and weirdly synchronous time. This is nature writing at its most evocative and insightful.

Trickster and transformer, powerful and vulnerable, Coyote is a complex figure in Indian legend. He was often the ultimate example of how not to be: foolish, proud, self-important. The tales in Old Man Coyote were told by the Crow Indians of present-day southeastern Montana. During long winter evenings by the lodge fire, they enjoyed hearing about the only warrior ever to visit the Bird Country, the Little-people who adopted a lost boy, the two-faced tribe that gambled for keeps, the marriage of Worm-face, and the origin of the buffalo. Wandering through these well-spun tales is the irrepressible Old Man Coyote, sometimes scoring a coup, sometimes getting his comeuppance. Ohio-born Frank B. Linderman (1869-1938) spent his adult life in Montana, first as a trapper, then as a publisher, politician, and businessman. Fred W. Voget is an adjunct professor of anthropology at Portland State University and the author of The Shoshoni-Crow Sun Dance.
