In Animate Planet Kath Weston shows how new intimacies between humans, animals, and their surroundings are emerging as people attempt to understand how the high-tech ecologically damaged world they have made is remaking them, one synthetic chemical, radioactive isotope, and megastorm at a time. Visceral sensations, she finds, are vital to this process, which yields a new animism in which humans and "the environment" become thoroughly entangled. In case studies on food, water, energy, and climate from the United States, India, and Japan, Weston approaches the new animism as both a symptom of our times and an analytic with the potential to open paths to new and forgotten ways of living.

'Grace Harlowe's Overland Riders on the Great American Desert' is a Western novel about a character named Grace Harlowe and her friends who went through adventures on horseback around North America, upon their return from Europe. At the beginning of the novel, she encountered a horse, who did not move a muscle for a few seconds, and then, with a sudden turn of the head, made a grab for his rider's leg. Grace, never having taken her eyes from the laid-back ears, gave a quick kick with her left foot, catching the pony fairly on the nose. As he hastily withdrew his head, she took advantage of the opportunity to tighten up on the reins, which brought the animal's head well up. All these preparatory activities were observed with intense interest by cowboys and Overlanders.

Rivals, friends, lovers Daniel and Dylan are the top swimmers in the world; Alex and Alí, the top tennis players. They play for God, country, family, and the need to escape their troubled pasts. In their quest to be the best, they also harbor a secret: Each is in love with his rival. The four hit it off at the Summer Olympics in New York and reconnect on an island vacation that gives new meaning to doubles, round-robin, and preliminary heats. By then, the shifting professional fortunes of each couple have begun to signal a change in their personal relationships as well, one that will lead to new alliances and betrayal and engulf them in tragedy. Told from their alternating viewpoints, Water Music is about power, jealousy, dominance, and submission. It’s about how the past informs the present and the future and how the choices made by nations, our families, and ourselves color our lives. Ultimately, it’s the story of how we come to accept those choices and learn to live with loss through love.

Behind them were their pasts. Ahead of them—infinity. In this different and suspense-filled novel, the author of Donovan’s Brain tells the story of a strange quest whose outcome might mean the difference between survival and extinction for mankind.

One mistake pits a woman against cold-blooded killers. With no escape, she needs to fight for her life or prepare to die... Orphaned at an early age when her parents were killed in a horrific accident, Amanda Bishop dreams of being a riding instructor, galloping horses, and green pastures. Instead, she’s on the run from gangsters and if she can’t stop them risks not only her own life but those of everyone around her. Bullied in care, Amanda ran away to London where she fell in love with a man, naively not realising he was the head of a major drug operation. When he's arrested, she runs again, but she has something they want, badly - badly enough to kill anyone who gets in their way. Instead of riding horses, she’s on the run from gangsters. She thought she could run away and start over, but was sadly mistaken. She has to face them or lose everything
