by David Brin

Did we evolve into a space-faring people all on our own, or were we "uplifted" like the rest of the inhabitants of the galaxy? The answer seems to lie within our own sun, so an expedition is mounted to find the truth. But when a lost scout ship points to... (read more)

Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions (P.S.)

Cowboy Bebop Volume 1

While not its original form (the television series predates the books), the adventures of the Bebop crew are still a blast to read. Spike, Jet, Faye, and Ed are each a great interpretation of a sci-fi archetype and will keep you turning the pages. A... (read more)
