Robert Gu is a world-renowned poet and recovering Alzheimer's patient. The world that he remembers was much as we know it today. Now, as he regains his faculties through a new cure, he discovers that the world has changed. He is seventy-five years old, though by a medical miracle he looks much younger, and he’s starting over, for the first time unsure of his poetic gifts. Living with his son’s family, he has no choice but to learn how to cope with a new information age in which the virtual and the real are a seamless continuum. But the consensus reality of the digital world is available only if, like his thirteen-year-old granddaughter Miri, you know how to wear your wireless access and to see the digital context—through smart contact lenses. With knowledge comes risk. When Robert begins to re-train at Fairmont High he unwittingly becomes part of a wide-ranging conspiracy to use technology as a tool for world domination. This conspiracy is something that baffles even the most sophisticated security analysts, including Robert’s son and daughter-in law, two top people in the U.S. military. And even Miri, in her attempts to protect her grandfather, may be entangled in the plot . . . ‘In the grand tradition of William Gibson and Neal Stephenson, Vernor Vinge just turned the future upside-down in Rainbow's End’ Charles Stross

Fourteen-year-old Andy Noble is the King's Top Communicator with a new body and a new name: Andar meaning to walk. Andar gets a new spaceship, the Firefly Blue. Twelve-year-old Storm, the pilot, with his BRO robot, and thirteen-year-old Trace, the engineer/navigator with her SIS robot, make up the team of virus-hunters in the Fifth Kingdom. The King promises: Tu para siempre vas a andar conmigo you are to walk with Me forever! Called Love, Joy and Peace, they find Troon (Faith) working with the Middle School Choir. Shermy (Hope) is a mentor and just one of the boys at Noble Ranch. Does Shermy have the last spaceship, or are there more? How does Eddie use a paintball game to get the picture he wants? Why would anyone refuse the gifts the King offers? The mission: to explore treasures freely open to all helping them become Andars-to walk with the King Norma Jean Waterhouse writes for chapter-book readers. The Andar To Walk Adventures emphasizes the "fruits of the Spirit" in Mystery of the Firefly Charms, "putting on the whole armor of God" in Mystery of the Firefly Riders and the "riches of grace" in Mystery of the Rainbow Firewall.

Stay inspired every day of the year with this volume of tips, prompts, and insight into maintaining your own creative practice. Regardless of their chosen medium, all artists and crafters share the passion to create and the need for inspiration. Some of us have plenty of ideas for projects yet can't find the time to get started, while others are ready to go—yet can never decide what to make. The Crafter's Devotional offers ways to make your creative process part of your daily life. Rather than offering instructions to follow for a particular project, The Crafter's Devotional combines lessons, quotations, techniques and journaling prompts designed to help you explore and nurture your own creative impulses. Each day of the year is given its own focus, on which the reader will find a dose of inspiration, instruction, or illumination.
