Book Summary:

Six-time Hugo-Award winner Ben Bova presents Farside. Farside, the side of the Moon that never faces Earth, is the ideal location for an astronomical observatory. It is also the setting for a tangled web of politics, personal ambition, love, jealousy, and murder. Telescopes on Earth have detected an Earth-sized planet circling a star some thirty light-years away. Now the race is on to get pictures of that distant world, photographs and spectra that will show whether or not the planet is truly like Earth, and if it bears life. Farside will include the largest optical telescope in the solar system as well as a vast array of radio antennas, the most sensitive radio telescope possible, insulated from the interference of Earth's radio chatter by a thousand kilometers of the Moon's solid body. Building the Farside observatory is a complex, often dangerous task. On the airless surface of the Moon, under constant bombardment of hard radiation and infalling micrometeoroids, builders must work in cumbersome spacesuits and use robotic machines as much as possible. Breakdowns—mechanical and emotional—are commonplace. Accidents happen, some of them fatal. What they find stuns everyone, and the human race will never be the same. "Bova's latest novel is one of his best, and a classic use of the old sf theme of humanity reaching out for immortality among the stars."—Booklist (starred review) on Farside At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Book Summary:

When Charulata Ramachandran's brother, Ravi, dies unexpectedly in an accident, she returns from the US to Mumbai. She soon stumbles on something that suggests a more sinister game is in play. Her suspicions that Ravi may have been murdered are dismissed by the police, so Charu, along with the retired-policeman-turned-detective Anand and Ravi's best friend David tries to piece things together. Her life is thrown in disarray in the process. As Charu's discovery brings to light the intricate details of an immaculate blackmailing scheme, she must not only brave the imminent threat to her own life, but also grapple with the terrifying possibility that perhaps her brother was not the honest, decent man she had thought him to be. Can Charu deal with the horrifying truth to unravel the twisted threads of a conspiracy that has left her brother, and others, dead? Does she dare find out who killed her brother and, more importantly, why? In the end, like the farside of the moon, everyone has a face that has never been seen. Does Charu have it in her to find the other side?

Book Summary:

Renowned for exploring the social implications of modern technology, Howard Rheingold has been dubbed by MIT "the first citizen of the Internet." In this collection of funny, prescient, thought-provoking essays, originally published during the 1970s and 1980s, he offers a glimpse into the changes wrought during that explosive period. From the effects of the graphic user interface (GUI) not only on how we work but how we think, to "technarchist" movements that presaged both the hacker mentality and the anarchist idealism of Burning Man today, to a ground-floor view of the very earliest of what Rheingold was the first to dub virtual communities, his Excursions run the gamut from the silly to the profound. These essays remain fascinating, amusing, and relevant. "Most of my work in recent decades," Rheingold says, "has focused on the consequences of digital media and networked publics. Before the digital wave came along, I wrote about a more diverse range of subjects: What causes anger? What’s it like to be in a car crash? What’s insect sex like? Do invisible airborne chemicals affect behavior? Can we control our dreams? How will people get high in the future? Will money evolve into new forms? In the second decade of the twenty-first century, these short pieces re-present my explorations during my think about anything years to a wider public who may be familiar with my work on digital culture."
