Ender's Shadow explores the stars in this all-new novel... At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth's scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten--a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth's history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come. For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders--the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship's colony. Shadows in Flight is the fifth novel in Orson Scott Card's Shadow Series.

Enraged screams filled his head. Deadly shapes bore down. Animal and man driven by one single thought. Kill or be killed. Neither wanted to die. Falsely accused of a terrible crime, impetuous young aristocrat Lord Dallas Acheson is forced to flee his native Scotland, leaving behind the only woman he has ever loved-Lady Lorna de Iongh. From that day onwards, he must learn to live a different life in a land where danger is an ever-present partner. Fate takes him to southern Africa and the emerging seaport of Durban, from where he sets off to trade and hunt, seeking his fortune in the little-travelled midlands of Natal and the wilds of Zululand. Tested to the limit, Dallas discovers more than he could have imagined. Married to a woman he doesn't love, he yearns to abandon the restraints of nineteenth-century society to be with Lorna. And when the Zulu war breaks out, he finds himself torn between old and new loyalties, required to be an enemy of the land that is now his true home.

This is not your standard Western, nor is it historical. Ghostdancer is a mystery/thriller, an action/adventure story set on the Colorado/New Mexico border, where the author has lived for many years. Meet Jack Parnell Mackenzie, a troubled, would-be cowboy searching for his past. It is also a tale about a young boy's love and the shame that stripped him of a life of sanity. Set from 1905 to 1969, Old Tom Sullivan lives 80 years in mental darkness. His is a story of child abuse, reincarnation, and retribution for crimes cast in previous lives. When an elusive peregrine falcon leads Parnell into the secrets of a past life, he meets the exotic Ghostdancer and witnesses her death. Young Tom Sullivan appears to him as he was at the age of thirteen. Anyone drawn to stories of the West, mysteries, or tales bordering on the supernatural and the mystery of reincarnation, will be caught up in this hard-hitting novel. Beware: Once you pick it up, you won't be putting it down. Ben Zeller lives in La Veta, Colorado. He has given readings and signings of his books throughout the world. Three of his plays, Some Die From Drinking Water, Single File Will Get You and Back to the Hat Factory, have been performed at the University of Alaska and The Pipe Dream Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He works in the film industry as an actor and in the art department. Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/BenZeller

The story of The First Formic War continues in Earth Awakens. Nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel Ender's Game, humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the Solar System. A thin web of ships in both asteroid belts; a few stations; a corporate settlement on Luna. No one had seen any sign of other space-faring races; everyone expected that First Contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun. When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth orbit, and began landing terra-forming crews in China. Politics and pride slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn't wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost.
