Summary

The Hugo and Nebula Award winner that William Gibson called the “best science-fiction war novel ever written” and its sequel—plus a powerful story that links the two.   This collection brings together Joe Haldeman’s widely acclaimed military science fiction classic, The Forever War; a novelette featuring hero William Mandella’s life partner, Marygay Potter; and the epic concluding novel to the saga.  The Forever War: Conscripted into service for the United Nations Exploratory Force, Pvt. William Mandella fights for Earth light years away against an alien enemy. After surviving a harrowing two years of combat, Private Mandella and his fellow soldiers return home only to discover decades have passed due to the time dilation caused by space travel. Society has evolved into a civilization beyond the veterans’ comprehension, offering them no place to go but back into the military and a never-ending cycle of interstellar conflict that occurs over months while Earth ages centuries.   “A Separate War”: Marygay Potter, reassigned and separated from her lover, William Mandella, continues fighting in military engagements across the stars—all the while planning how she and Mandella can reunite despite the time and space between them.  Forever Free: Human beings have become a single hive-mind. Unwilling to sacrifice his individuality, William Mandella has joined other war veterans in exile on the half-frozen world known as Middle Finger, hoping to live in peace with Marygay and their children. But Humanity needs the genes of veterans to continue their evolution, forcing Mandella and his family to escape on an odyssey that will alter their lives forever.

    Three novels in one volume: the acclaimed science fiction trilogy about an alien species that could save humanity after nuclear apocalypse—or destroy it. The newest stage in human evolution begins in outer space. Survivors of a cataclysmic nuclear war awake to find themselves being studied by the Oankali, tentacle-covered galactic travelers whose benevolent appearance hides their surprising plan for the future of mankind. The Oankali arrive not just to save humanity, but to bond with it—crossbreeding to form a hybrid species that can survive in the place of its human forebears, who were so intent on self-destruction. Some people resist, forming pocket communities of purebred rebellion, but many realize they have no choice. The human species inevitably expands into something stranger, stronger, and undeniably alien. From Hugo and Nebula award–winning author Octavia Butler, Lilith’s Brood is both a thrilling, epic adventure of man’s struggle to survive after Earth’s destruction, and a provocative meditation on what it means to be human.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

    From #1 Bestseller Morgan Rice comes an unforgettable new fantasy series. 
    
    In A COURT FOR THIEVES (A Throne for Sisters—Book Two), Sophia, 17, finds her world upside down as she is cast from the romantic world of aristocracy and back to the horrors of the orphanage. This time the nuns seem intent on killing her. Yet that doesn’t pain her as much as her broken heart. Will Sebastian realize his mistake and come back for her?
    
    Her younger sister Kate, 15, embarks on her training with the witch, coming of age under her auspices, mastering the sword, gaining more power than she ever imagined possible—and determined to embark on a quest to save her sister. She finds herself immersed in a world of violence and combat, of a magic she craves—and yet one that may consume her.
    
    A secret is revealed about Sophia and Kate’s lost parents, and all may not be what it seems for the sisters. Fate, indeed, may be turned on its head.

    The nightshades cover the land. Demons of smoke and shadow, they fear no sword or arrow. They suck the souls from all who live, like a glutton sucking marrow from bones. The world falls under their darkness. 
    But the nightshades crave more than random ruin. The souls of mere humans will not sate them. They seek dragons. 
    Requiem's last dragons, a mere scattering of survivors, have fought off men and griffins. But how can they fight the nightshades, creatures they cannot cut or burn?
