At the end of the fourth year of the Crisis Era, Yun Tianming, riddled with cancer, chose to end his life. But death is no release for Yun Tianming - merely the first step in a journey that will place him on the frontline of a war that has raged since the beginning of time. As Yun Tianming lay dying, his brain was extracted from his body, flash frozen, put aboard a spacecraft and launched on a trajectory to intercept the Trisolarian First Fleet. It was a desperate plan, almost certain to fail. But there was an infinitesimal chance that one day Tianming may, somehow, send valuable information back to Earth. And so he does. But not before he succumbed to subjective centuries of alien torture and betrayed humanity. Rewarded with a cloned body by the Trisolarans, Tianming has spent millennia in exile as a traitor to the human race. But now he has a final chance at redemption. A being calling itself The Spirit recruits him to help wage war against a foe that threatens the existence of the entire universe. But Tianming refuses to be a pawn again. He has his own plans...

In Precarious Times, Anne Fuchs explores how works of German literature, film, and photography reflect on the profound temporal anxieties precipitated by contemporary experiences of atomization, displacement, and fragmentation that bring about a loss of history and of time itself and that is peculiar to our current moment. The digital age places premiums on just-in-time deliveries, continual innovation, instantaneous connectivity, and around-the-clock availability. While some celebrate this 24/7 culture, others see it as profoundly destructive to the natural rhythm of day and night-and to human happiness. Have we entered an era of a perpetual present that depletes the future and erodes our grasp of the past? Beginning its examination around 1900, when rapid modernization was accompanied by comparably intense reflection on changing temporal experience, Precarious Times provides historical depth and perspective to current debates on the ´´digital now.´´ Expanding the modern discourse on time and speed, Fuchs deploys such concepts as attention, slowness and lateness to emphasize the uneven quality of time around the world.

´Beautifully written and superbly executed´ Times ´This clever and moving Faustian tale is packed with fascinating historical detail´ Express ´A joyous romp around England´s dark past´ Suzie Feay, Guardian From the author of the bestselling The Time Traveller´s Guide to Restoration Britain, this is a stunningly high-concept historical novel that is both as daring as it is gripping, and perfect for fans of Conn Iggulden, SJ Parris and Kate Mosse. December 1348. With the country in the grip of the Black Death, brothers John and William fear that they will shortly die and go to Hell. But as the end draws near, they are given an unexpected choice: either to go home and spend their last six days in their familiar world, or to search for salvation across the forthcoming centuries - living each one of their remaining days ninety-nine years after the last. John and William choose the future and find themselves in 1447, ignorant of almost everything going on around them. The year 1546 brings no more comfort, and 1645 challenges them still further. It is not just that technology is changing: things they have taken for granted all their lives prove to be short-lived. As they find themselves in stranger and stranger times, the reader travels with them, seeing the world through their eyes as it shifts through disease, progress, enlightenment and war. But their time is running out - can they do something to redeem themselves before the six days are up? What readers are saying: ´Wow, what a book! I absolutely adored this. This was ambitious but done to perfection´ Sara Marsden ´The Outcasts of Time is a tour de force, rich in spellbinding detail.

As perfect a novel as any I´ve ever read´ Ophelia´s Reads ´A fascinating trip through seven centuries of history ... The author has done well to traverse such a sweep of time ... it´s a great read and I´d recommend it´ Netgalley reviewer, 4 stars
A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It was a dark and stormy night-Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. ´´Wild nights are my glory,´´ the unearthly stranger told them. ´´I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I´ll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract.´´ A tesseract (in case the reader doesn´t know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L´Engle´s unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O´Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg´s father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.
