"A master absurdist...Highly recommended." —The New York Times Before the success of her debut SF-and-fantasy novel All the Birds in the Sky, Charlie Jane Anders was a rising star in SF and fantasy short fiction. Collected in a mini-book format, here—for the first time in print—are six of her quirky, wry, engaging best: In "The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model," aliens reveal the terrible truth about how humans were created—and why we'll never discover aliens. "As Good as New" is a brilliant twist on the tale of three wishes, set after the end of the world. "Intestate" is about a family reunion in which some attendees aren't quite human anymore—but they're still family. "The Cartography of Sudden Death" demonstrates that when you try to solve a problem with time travel, you now have two problems. "Six Months, Three Days" is the story of the love affair between a man who can see the one true foreordained future, and a woman who can see all the possible futures. They're both right, and the story won the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. And "Clover," exclusively written for this collection, is a coda to All the Birds in the Sky, answering the burning question of what happened to Patricia's cat.

Peacemakers Six Months that Changed The World

After the war to end all wars, men and women from all over the world converged on Paris for the Peace Conference. At its heart were the three great powers - Woodrow Wilson, Lloyd George and Clemenceau - but thousands of others came too, each with a different agenda. Kings, prime ministers and foreign ministers with their crowds of advisers rubbed shoulders with journalists and lobbyists for a hundred causes, from Armenian independence to women's rights. Everyone had business that year - T.E. Lawrence, Queen Marie of Romania, Maynard Keynes, Ho Chi Minh. There had never been anything like it before, and there never has been since. For six extraordinary months the city was effectively the centre of world government as the peacemakers wound up bankrupt empires and created new countries. This book brings to life the personalities, ideals and prejudices of the men who shaped the settlement. They pushed Russia to the sidelines, alienated China and dismissed the Arabs, struggled with the problems of Kosovo, or the Kurds, and of a homeland for the Jews. The peacemakers, it has been said, failed dismally, and above all failed to prevent another war. Margaret MacMillan argues that they have been made scapegoats for the mistakes of those who came later. They tried to be evenhanded, but their goals could never in fact be achieved by diplomacy.

Every year, thousands of graduate students across the US reach a critical milestone in their academic careers when they earn ABD, or all but dissertation status. The problem is, far too many never move past that critical juncture. They lose interest or momentum, are intimidated by the dissertation research, writing and approval process, or they lack a sufficient network of professors, peers, family and friends to see them through to the Ph.D. Sharing her experience, Dr. Judi Cineas shows students how smooth the dissertation journey can be with a little help and preparation. To facilitate her transition from ABD to Ph.D., she made a plan; stuck with it; enlisted available help and finished her dissertation in a breathtakingly fast six months. In Six Months to Dr., she shows readers how they, too, can apply the same time- and energy-saving tactics she used, and move from ABD to PHinisheD.You haven't come all this way in your academic career just to stop short of the finish line. Dr. Judi's practical, clearly written plan can work for you just like it did for her, and get you to Dr.a lot sooner, and with a lot less anguish!

The Last Six Months is a moving story about my mother Kay who went into an NHS hospital for a routine hip operation. Her condition deteriorated soon after her operation so I started writing notes every day. Six months later I was still writing, and sadly she died while still in the hospital. My notes have become an up-to-date diary during this terrible and tragic course of events, it has also allowed me to remember the many wonderful conversations, the laughter, the tears, the anxieties, and the closeness we had. I hope from reading my mother's story, and from my readers who have kindly contributed their own stories of loved ones they should never be yesterday's news, it's so important that these stories are shown and not forgotten. Together we can make a difference. Strength In Numbers

Six Months in Sudan

A Young Doctor in a War-torn Village

Author: Dr. James Maskalyk

“People are hungry to be brought closer to the world, even its hard parts. I went to Sudan, and am writing about it again, because I believe that which separates action from inaction is the same thing that separates my friends from Sudan. It is not indifference. It is distance. May it fall away.” In 2007 James Maskalyk set out for the contested border town of Abyei, Sudan, as a doctor newly recruited by Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Equipped with his experience as an emergency physician in a downtown hospital and drawn to the hardest parts of the world, Maskalyk spent his days treating malnourished children, coping with a measles epidemic and watching for war. Worn thin by the struggle to meet overwhelming needs with few resources, he returned home six months later more affected by the experience, the people and the place than he had anticipated. Six Months in Sudan began as a blog that Maskalyk wrote from his hut in Sudan in an attempt to bring his family and friends closer to his hot, hot days. It is the story of the doctors, nurses and countless volunteers who leave their homes behind to ease the suffering of others, and it is the story of the people of Abyei who suffer its hardship because it is the only home they have. With great hope and insight, Maskalyk illuminates a distant place and chronicles the toll of war on one community, one man, and the cost of it to all of us. From the Hardcover edition.
