<p><b>In this propulsive thriller, one of the most ingenious young men in the world has also become the most dangerous…or has he?</b></p><p>Harmony House is more than a “special place for special people.” It’s a think tank where high-functioning autistic savants harness their unique abilities for the benefit of society. Resident Eddie Parks’s contribution is nothing less than extraordinary: an “echo box” that can re-create never-recorded sounds using acoustic archeology.</p><p>All Eddie wants is to hear his late mother’s voice. But what he’s created is inadvertently posing a threat to national security.</p><p>To Harmony House’s shadowy government backers and radical extremists, the echo box is the ultimate intelligence asset—an end to the very concept of secrecy. Now for Eddie and the compassionate Dr. Skylar Drummond, the true nature of the institution is becoming chillingly clear.</p><p>As ruthless competing enemies close in on Eddie and his miraculous machine, Skylar risks all to take him on the run. Because once that prize is won, Eddie Parks will no longer be considered a “special person” but a dangerous redundancy. An inconvenient echo that must be silenced.</p>

The mission was a failure. The crew is dead or dying. Soon, a derelict ship will be the only remnant of this expedition, towering above the primeval landscape of a prehistoric planet. But the ship's AI holds the seeds of a new mission in a program designed by the last surviving crew member—one that will take decades, if not centuries, to complete, and will possibly set a new course for all of humankind.<br /><br />This beloved sci fi classic—which explores themes related to space travel, mind uploading, and first contact—is no less contemporary today than it was in 1972, when it won the prestigious European Science Fiction Society (Eurocon) Award. The Mission inspired a TV miniseries and a long-running comic in its native Hungary, as well as numerous editions in German, Russian, and other languages. Read by hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world, this essential sci fi classic has been unavailable in English—until now. Discover the first of several amazing tales by bestselling author Peter Zsoldos.<br /><br />About the Author: <br />Péter Zsoldos (1930–1997) was a Hungarian science fiction author whose contemporaries include Arthur C. Clark, Ray Bradbury, and Robert Heinlein. Zsoldos published his first novel, The Viking Returns, in 1963. In this and subsequent novels, the author, in the words of linguist and reviewer Bogi Takács, writing for Locus Magazine, “changed the way entire Hungarian generations saw science fiction and fantasy.” Other works include Distant Fire (1969), Counterpoint (1973), The Departed Do Not Cast Shadows (1983), and The Last Temptation (1988).

<b>Now a Hulu Original Series</b><br /><br /><i>The Handmaid's Tale</i> is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.<br /><br /> The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. <i>The Handmaid's Tale </i>is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.
