They thought they could study it, classify it, control it. They couldn’t. IT HAS THRIVED Six months ago, a secret paramilitary team called Unit 51 was sent to the station.

View: 738In April 1912 in Hampton, Virginia, white eighteen-year-old reporter Charles Mears covers his first murder case, a trial that roiled racial tensions. An uneducated African American girl, Virginia Christian, was tried for killing her white employer. "Virgie" died in the electric chair one day after her seventeenth birthday, the only female juvenile executed in Virginia history. Charlie tells the story of the trial and its aftermath. Woven into his narrative are actual court records, letters, newspaper stories, and personal accounts, reflecting the arc of history in characters large and small, in events local and global. Charlie falls in love with Harriet, a girl orphaned by the murder; meets Virgie's blind attorney George Fields, a former slave; and encounters physician Walter Plecker, a state official who pursues racial purity laws later emulated in Nazi Germany. There is much to admire in the pages of Forsaken, especially the vivid sense of time and place, Hampton Roads after the Civil War and Reconstruction. The novel's premise is ambitious, its events striking and tragic, and fiction and nonfiction are deftly blended in this powerful read on the themes of injustice, corruption, and racial conflict set in the poisonous epoch known as Jim Crow.

Searching for God’s Fingerprints
Author: Richard D. Bangs
View: 2967For the dedicated scientists who man a remote listening post on one of Saturn’s moons, 2088 has been a pretty quiet year. After nearly 130 years of fruitless listening to the silence of the void, the men and women who represent mankind at the edge of the solar system are humanity’s best hope for first contact. None of the specialists on duty could have ever predicted what is racing toward them—or what it means for humanity’s future. Jarrod McKinley and two others are stationed on a listening post orbiting the moon Titan, part of man’s latest effort to make contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. What the Titan base crew is about to experience will shake the foundations of the belief that mankind is alone in the universe. Without warning, a massive energy wave sweeps around Saturn and blasts the post. McKinley and his crew survive the initial blast, but the listening post is severely damaged. As a rescue mission is launched, a strange signal is discovered within the energy wave. Just as things seem under control, an explosion rocks the station; one of the crew is killed, but McKinley and Liza Alvarez jettison in an escape pod. McKinley senses some evil has targeted him and the newly discovered signal. As McKinley and Alvarez escape several attempts on their lives and race from Saturn to Earth, they survive repeated attempts to silence them, and they discover a plot that shakes the search for first contact.
