This New York Times bestseller set during the American Revolution is “an exciting tale of love and war in the tradition of Gone with the Wind” (Chicago Tribune). A bustling port city, Charleston, South Carolina, is the crossroads of the American Revolution where supplies and weapons for the rebel army must be unloaded and smuggled north. From the window of the dressmaker’s shop where she works, lovely Celia Garth, recently engaged to the heir to a magnificent plantation, watches all of this thrilling activity. When the unthinkable occurs and the British capture and occupy Charleston, bringing fiery retribution to the surrounding countryside, Celia sees her world destroyed. The rebel cause seems lost until the Swamp Fox, American General Francis Marion, takes the fight to the British—and one of his daring young soldiers recruits Celia to spy on the rebels’ behalf. Out of the ashes of Charleston and the Carolina countryside will rise a new nation—and a love that will change Celia Garth forever.

In 2190, New America celebrates its first centennial, marking the time when a wandering rogue turned into a Prophet Warrior rebuilt the battle-scarred country on Five Key Principles for Survival he found in the pages of the onetime controversial 21st century novel called The Book of Tomorrows, written by someone known only as The Author. A young couple meets for the first time through a government mandated Selected Breeding Program and fall in love at a museum, where they join a group of schoolchildren on a computer guided history tour. Then a hereditary link to the young couple reveals a dark conspiracy that forces them on a fateful journey through the past to save their future tomorrow. An epic trilogy within a trilogy, The Book of Tomorrows is a suspense-filled conspiracy thriller steeped in dark secrets, hidden pasts, and ancient truths that might just turn out to be the first true story prophetically set 175 years in the future. Starting the story at the end, it tells a realistic tale of a visionary New America, and most important, how it got that way. The Book of Tomorrow begins with Volume One: Forever Tomorrow, Book One: Bright Night Past Yesterday & Book Two: Dark Light Present Today, while saving Book Three: Evening Dawn Future Tomorrow until the end of the trilogy. Forever Tomorrow: is also readable as its own separate trilogy that the whole family can enjoy. While Volume 2: I, Messiah & Volume 3: The Prophet Warrior tell much darker stories more mature readers can pass down to their children when old enough. Each volume tells a complete story the reader can enjoy separately, chronologically, or as numerically conceived-starting and ending with Forever Tomorrow. A suspense filled mystery with cliffhanger endings, heroic sacrifices, and a sly wit, it is a thrilling action adventure motivated by a dark conspiracy, strong bonds of friendships, and a powerful love story. The Book of Tomorrows is a futuristic fable that is not about alien spaceships, supernatural beings, or miraculous endings; instead it is a relevant, thought provoking, profound look at what could happen in a world gone mad with a cancerous greed for wealth and power, breeding a hypocrisy of truth that will one day leave mankind with the final choice to either live smart or be doomed to die stupid. Let us just hope it won't be too late.

“A classic space opera...a universe we’ve never seen before.” —Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author From Hugo Award finalist Max Gladstone comes a smart, swashbuckling, wildly imaginative adventure; the saga of a rag-tag team of brilliant misfits, dangerous renegades, and enhanced outlaws in a war-torn future. A wildly successful innovator to rival Steve Jobs or Elon Musk, Vivian Liao is prone to radical thinking, quick decision-making, and reckless action. On the eve of her greatest achievement, she tries to outrun people who are trying to steal her success. In the chilly darkness of a Boston server farm, Viv sets her ultimate plan into motion. A terrifying instant later, Vivian Liao is catapulted through space and time to a far future where she confronts a destiny stranger and more deadly than she could ever imagine. The end of time is ruled by an ancient, powerful Empress who blesses or blasts entire planets with a single thought. Rebellion is literally impossible to consider--until Vivian Liao arrives. Trapped between the Pride—a ravening horde of sentient machines—and a fanatical sect of warrior monks who call themselves the Mirrorfaith, Viv must rally a strange group of allies to confront the Empress and find a way back to the world and life she left behind. A magnificent work of vivid imagination and universe-spanning action, Empress of Forever is a feminist Guardians of the Galaxy crossed with Star Wars and spiced with the sensibility and spirit of Iain M. Banks and William Gibson.

She spent her life in the movies. Her childhood is still there to see in Miracle on 34th Street. Her adolescence in Rebel Without a Cause. Her coming of age? Still playing in Splendor in the Grass and West Side Story and countless other hit movies. From the moment Natalie Wood made her debut in 1946, playing Claudette Colbert and Orson Welles’s ward in Tomorrow Is Forever at the age of seven, to her shocking, untimely death in 1981, the decades of her life are marked by movies that–for their moments–summed up America’s dreams. Now the acclaimed novelist, biographer, critic and screenwriter Gavin Lambert, whose twenty-year friendship with Natalie Wood began when she wanted to star in the movie adaptation of his novel Inside Daisy Clover, tells her extraordinary story. He writes about her parents, uncovering secrets that Natalie either didn’t know or kept hidden from those closest to her. Here is the young Natalie, from her years as a child actress at the mercy of a driven, controlling stage mother (“Make Mr. Pichel love you,” she whispered to the five-year-old Natalie before depositing her unexpectedly on the director’s lap), to her awkward adolescence when, suddenly too old for kiddie roles, she was shunted aside, just another freshman at Van Nuys High. Lambert shows us the glamorous movie star in her twenties—All the Fine Young Cannibals, Gypsy and Love with the Proper Stranger. He writes about her marriages, her divorces, her love affairs, her suicide attempt at twenty-six, the birth of her children, her friendships, her struggles as an actress and her tragic death by drowning (she was always terrified of water) at forty-three. For the first time, everyone who knew Natalie Wood speaks freely–including her husbands Robert Wagner and Richard Gregson, famously private people like Warren Beatty, intimate friends such as playwright Mart Crowley, directors Robert Mulligan and Paul Mazursky, and Leslie Caron, each of whom told the author stories about this remarkable woman who was both life-loving and filled with despair. What we couldn’t know–have never been told before–Lambert perceptively uncovers. His book provides the richest portrait we have had of Natalie Wood.
