On the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb, Hugo and Nebula-winning author Robert J. Sawyer takes us back in time to revisit history...with a twist. While J. Robert Oppenheimer and his Manhattan Project team struggle to develop the A-bomb, Edward Teller wants something even more devastating: a bomb based on nuclear fusion--the mechanism that powers the sun. Teller's research leads to a terrifying discovery: by the year 2030, the sun will eject its outermost layer, destroying the entire inner solar system--including Earth. As the war ends with the use of fission bombs against Japan, Oppenheimer's team, plus Albert Einstein and Wernher von Braun, stay together--the greatest scientific geniuses from the last century racing against time to save our future. Meticulously researched and replete with real-life characters and events, The Oppenheimer Alternative is a breathtaking adventure through both real and alternate history.

Pre-order A History of What Comes Next, a speculative fiction as rich as The Man in the High Castle and as packed with thrills as Ready Player One This is a secret history of our world like no other . . . Always run, never fight. Preserve the knowledge. Survive at all costs. Take them to the stars. _________ Germany, 1945. Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent by the OSS to find Wernher von Braun: Germany's - and the world's - foremost rocket scientist. Her mission: stop the Russians getting hold of him. But von Braun is suspicious. And so he should be. For Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And helping the Allies win the Second World War is just one part of her plan . . . Because there's an even darker conflict on Earth. A secret struggle thousands of years old. One that has taken generations of Mia's people. But can the firing of rockets finally bring about its end? Can Mia, as the last of her kind, bring the stars down to earth? And if she succeeds, what will happen to us? _________ 'Wry narration, wired action . . . Fans of alternate history and intelligent sci-fi will love this' Publishers Weekly 'Clever and compelling, it will keep you enthralled until the end' Robert J.

This study is a short-term effort examining alternative ways that government can carry out its activities. The study was commissioned by the Defense Reform Initiative Office and should prove useful to government agencies and decisionmakers who are considering options for organizing themselves or their functions in different ways. The report considers governance structures and organizational forms that offer alternatives to the usual in-house provision of services. The alternatives can offer a chance to adopt modern business practices, streamline the organization, and adopt market mechanisms to improve quality, lower costs, and become more responsive to constituencies. As specific illustrations, the report describes several case studies.
