              A groundbreaking new collection of short fiction: nine stunningly original, provocative and poignant stories. In `The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate', a portal through time forces a fabric-seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and the temptation of second cha...nces. In the epistolary `Exhalation', an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications not just for his own people, but for all of reality. And in `The Lifecycle of Software Objects', a woman cares for an artificial intelligence over 20 years, elevating a faddish digital pet into what might be a true living being. Also included are two previously unpublished stories: `Omphalos' and `Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom'. In Exhalation, Ted Chiang wrestles with the oldest questions on earth - What is the nature of the universe? What does it mean to be human? - and ones that no one else has even imagined. And, each in its own way, the stories prove that complex and thoughtful science fiction can rise to new heights of beauty, meaning, and compassion.

              At Cape Three Points on the beautiful Ghanaian coast, a canoe washes up at an oil rig site. The two bodies in the canoe who turn out to be a prominent, wealthy middle-aged couple have obviously been murdered; the way Mr. Smith-Aidoo has been gruesomely decapitated suggests the ki...ller was trying to send a specific message but what and to whom? The Smith-Aidoos, pillars in their community, are mourned by everyone, but especially by their niece Sapphire, a successful pediatric surgeon in Ghana s capital, Accra. She is not happy that months have passed since the murder and the rural police have made no headway. When the federal police finally agree to get involved, Detective Inspector Darko Dawson of the Accra police force is sent out to investigate. Pretty as the coast is, he is not happy to be sent away from his wife and two sons, the younger of whom is recovering from a heart operation. And the more he learns about the case, the more convoluted and dangerous it becomes. Three Points has long been inhabited by tribal villages of subsistence fishers, but real estate entrepreneurs and wealthy oil companies have been trying to bribe the tribes to move out. Dawson unearths a host of motives for murder, from personal vendettas to corporate conspiracies.

              For readers of Unbroken, In the Garden of Beasts, and Band of Brothers comes a pulse-pounding, heart-wrenching tale of bravery and brotherhood set against the backdrop of America's forgotten war in Korea--from the New York Times bestselling author of A Higher Call Devotion tells ...the inspirational story of the U.S. Navy's most famous aviator duo: Lieutenant Tom Hudner, a white, blue-blooded New Englander, and Ensign Jesse Brown, an African American sharecropper's son from Mississippi. The heir to a Massachusetts grocery store empire, Tom passed up Harvard to fly fighter planes for his country. Jesse, fascinated by aircraft since childhood, defied the odds--and the prejudices of his time--to become the Navy's first black carrier pilot. Barely a year after President Truman ordered the desegregation of the military, the unlikely pair joined forces as wingmen in Fighter Squadron 32. While much of America remained in the grip of the odious Jim Crow segregation laws, Jesse and Tom flew above the fray as brothers in arms. Adam Makos takes us over the sea and around the globe with these two bold young aviators as they cut their teeth at the world's most dangerous job--landing Corsair fighters on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Deployed to the Mediterranean, the two men revel in the perks of their newfound status, partying on the Riviera with millionaires and Hollywood starlets--including a young Elizabeth Taylor. While Jesse delights in a world he thought he'd never see, Tom meets the girl of his dreams. Then comes the war no one expected in far-off Korea. Devotion brings us along on white-knuckle dive-bombing runs over North Korean territory, as the pilots of Fighter Squadron 32 man the front lines of what many of them believe is the opening battle of World War III. As the fury of the fighting escalates, Tom and Jesse fly, guns blazing, into waves of Communist troops to defend a group of Marines cornered in a hellish winter landscape.

              A revelatory biography of the first African American Supreme Court Justice--one of the giants of the civil rights movement, and one of the most transforming Supreme Court Justices of the twentieth century. Over the course of his legendary forty-year career, Thurgood Marshall brou...ght down the separate-but-equal doctrine, integrated schools, fought for human rights and human dignity. Perhaps more than any other justice in recent history, he used the system to fundamentally change America. Wil Haygood probes Marshall's life on a personal level, recounts the dramatic five-day-long Senate hearing to confirm Marshall's Supreme Court nomination, and delves deeply into the most important legal cases of Marshall's career. And we meet the politicians, lawyers, civil rights activists, and others whose lives were intertwined with Marshall's, including President Lyndon Johnson, Congressman Adam Clayton Powell (whose scandals almost cost Marshall the Supreme Court judgeship), and Harry and Harriette Moore, the Florida NAACP workers who died at the hands of the KKK. This galvanizing biography makes it clear that it is impossible to overestimate Marshall's lasting influence on the racial politics of our nation. From the Hardcover edition.

              A riveting, kaleidoscopic debut novel and the beginning of a major career: a novel about race, history, ancestry, love, and time that traces the descendants of two sisters torn apart in eighteenth-century Africa across three hundred years in Ghana and America. Two half sisters, E...ffia and Esi, unknown to each other, are born into different tribal villages in eighteenth-century Ghana. Effia is married off to an Englishman and will live in comfort in the palatial rooms of Cape Coast Castle, raising half-caste children who will be sent abroad to be educated before returning to the Gold Coast to serve as administrators of the empire. Esi, imprisoned beneath Effia in the Castle's women's dungeon and then shipped off on a boat bound for America, will be sold into slavery. Stretching from the tribal wars of Ghana to slavery and the Civil War in America, from the coal mines in the American South to the Great Migration to twentieth-century Harlem, Yaa Gyasi's novel moves through histories and geographies and captures--with outstanding economy and force-- the troubled spirit of our own nation. She has written a modern masterpiece. From the Hardcover edition.
