Summertide (The Heritage Universe)

Summertide (The Heritage Universe) Lowest new price: $5.82
Lowest used price: $0.98
List price: $4.95
Author: Charles Sheffield

It was just before Summertide, the time when the twin planets, Opal and Quake, would orbit closest to their sun, subjecting both -- but Quake in particular -- to vast tidal forces. And it was to be the most violent Summertide ever, due to the Grand Conjunction of the system's stars and planets, something that happened only every 350,000 years.
Access to the unstable Quake was supposed to be prohibited, but some very insistent travelers were determined to make the trip. Professor Darya Lang, who had made a career studying artifacts left by the long-vanished aliens called the Builders, had a hunch that during this unusal Summertide she might find the Builders themselves. Louis Nenda and the Cecropian Atvar H'sial had their own interests in Quake, and would do anything to get there. And Councilor Julius Graves was hunting murderers -- if they were hiding on Quake, he needed no one's permission to search for them.
Planetary Administrators Hans Rebka and Max Perry had no choice but to go to Quake themselves -- risking their lives to protect the others -- and to learn, just maybe, the secret of Summertide and the Builders . . .
"A well-made puzzle story in the manner of Arthur C. Clarke's Rama books." -- The New York Times

Georgia on My Mind and Other Places

Georgia on My Mind and Other Places Lowest new price: $5.82
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $13.95
Author: Charles Sheffield

Georgia on My Mind and Other Places is a brilliant collection of visionary short fiction by Charles Sheffield, author of The Ganymede Club and Godspeed. It includes the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning title story, as well as other widely praised works.

Charles Sheffield has been publishing "hard SF" since 1977, and he has been widely touted for his impeccable scientific accuracy and foresight. But more importantly, Sheffield is a wonderful story teller who has the ability to make his characters and the worlds they live in resonate with readers. This literary one-two punch is the showcase of Sheffield's latest short story collection, which contains fourteen of his stories written between 1987-94. While the Nebula Award-winning title story "Georgia on My Mind" is clearly the centerpiece here, these are all first-rate tales by one of SF's finest writers.
