A deeply panoramic tour of the night, from its brightest spots to the darkest skies we have left. A starry night is one of nature's most magical wonders. Yet in our artificially lit world, three-quarters of Americans' eyes never switch to night vision and most of us no longer experience true darkness. In The End of Night, Paul Bogard restores our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art. From Las Vegas' Luxor Beam -- the brightest single spot on this planet -- to nights so starlit the sky looks like snow, Bogard blends personal narrative, natural history, science, and history to shed light on the importance of darkness -- what we've lost, what we still have, and what we might regain -- and the simple ways we can reduce the brightness of our nights tonight.

Molly, a sassy Australian waitress, is haunted by the ghost of a murdered Polish Jew. The two young women's stories, each a compelling page-turner, combine teasingly in one as 'End of the Night Girl' explores shadows cast by the Holocaust across decades, continents and cultures. 'A brilliant testimonial to the power of the literary imagination.' - Nicholas Jose. 'Clothed in prose that sparks and simmers, End of the Night Girl slowly reveals her dark and beautiful bones.' - Carol Lefevre. 'Amy Matthews' world of gritty realism is foreshadowed by an older, more traditional society about to be invaded by chaos and horror. One cannot help admiring Matthews' accuracy of observation and her subtle placement of emotion in the uncovering of these parallel universes through the coalescence of memory and imagination. This is a remarkable novel of contemporary rootlessness, haunted histories and redemptive decency.' - Brian Castro. 'Can atrocity be changed somehow in art? This book cannot answer this, but it powerfully suggests that the creative act is meaningful even when atrocity is too big for us to mould it. As Molly attempts to imagine and create from an atrocity she hasn't shared, she herself is remade.' - Eva Hornung. 'End of the Night Girl' was Winner of the 2010 Adelaide Festival Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript.

When Carlie Myers woke up from a blow to the head, two years were erased from her memory. She couldn't recall how she'd gotten to Alaska, or why she was being blamed for murder.

Yet one look in the deep green of Carlie's eyes and he knew she was innocent. Which meant she needed protection. He'd told her a white lie to keep her close—yet how would Sean keep his 'wife' safe and satisfied without putting his heart in jeopardy?

The first novel in a two-part Typhon Pact adventure set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation! In the wake of the final Borg invasion, which destroyed entire worlds, cost the lives of sixty-three billion people, and struck a crippling blow to Starfleet, six nations adversarial to the United Federation of Planets—the Romulan Star Empire, the Breen Confederacy, the Tholian Assembly, the Gorn Hegemony, the Tzenkethi Coalition, and the Holy Order of the Kinshaya— joined ranks to form the Typhon Pact. For almost three years, the Federation and the Klingon Empire, allied under the Khitomer Accords, have contended with the nascent coalition on a predominantly cold-war footing. But as Starfleet rebuilds itself, factions within the Typhon Pact grow restive, concerned about their own inability to develop a quantum slipstream drive to match that of the Federation. Will leaders such as UFP President Bacco and RSE Praetor Kamemor bring about a lasting peace across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, or will the cold war between the two alliances deepen, and perhaps even lead to an all-out shooting war?

Born in 1964 in Prague, Ewald Murrer belongs to that generation of Czech artists who came of age during the last years of the communist regime and who immediately afterward began to have their work disseminated in official publications. He is the author of numerous volumes of poetry in his native language and has appeared in anthologies and journals internationally. He is also the author of The Diary of Mr. Pinke. "Ewald Murrer has produced a book that perhaps seems at first to be a catalog of illustrations to Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams, but which ultimately, and primarily, awaits a sign, i.e., searches for meaning. Murrer rather clairvoyantly mirrors himself as author, and this is done expressly in the text. At the end of the 20th century he has portrayed a celebration of boredom, the stifling of which by momentary ecstasy, or Ecstasy, is futile. The transformation of illusion into disillusion occurs at the moment when drugs (of any sort) cease to have an effect, and Murrer goes further than many of his contemporary unfortunates in admitting the consequence.

It’s 1952, and E.F. Bloodworth is finally coming home to Ackerman’s Field, Tennessee. Itinerant banjo picker and volatile vagrant, he’s been gone ever since he gunned down a deputy thirty years before. Two of his sons won’t be home to greet him: Warren lives a life of alcoholic philandering down in Alabama, and Boyd has gone to Detroit in vengeful pursuit of his wife and the peddler she ran off with. His third son, Brady, is still home, but he’s an addled soothsayer given to voodoo and bent on doing whatever it takes to keep E.F. from seeing the wife he abandoned. Only Fleming, E.F.’s grandson, is pleased with the old man’s homecoming, but Fleming’s life is soon to careen down an unpredictable path hewn by the beautiful Raven Lee Halfacre. In the great Southern tradition of Faulkner, Styron, and Cormac McCarthy, William Gay wields a prose as evocative and lush as the haunted and humid world it depicts. Provinces of Night is a tale redolent of violence and redemption–a whiskey-scented, knife-scarred novel whose indelible finale is not an ending nearly so much as it is an apotheosis.
