An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.

OPERATION VANISHED:

The plane is down somewhere off the North Carolina coast. No sign of wreckage or of survivors can be spotted. A group of this country's leading biochemists (including the brilliant, beautiful Dr. Stella Thayer) were aboard the flight. Consequently, sabotage cannot be ruled out as a cause of the disaster.

That is the official report...

The top-secret settlement - a fully functioning subterranean colony - is hidden somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. It is equipped with all the essentials for basic, long-term existence. Its inhabitants are a group of this country's leading biochemists (including the brilliant, beautiful Dr. Stella Thayler), and it will soon become the scene of the most bizarre, the most world-shaking scientific experiment in history - Project Nevermore...

Crazy Time

Kate Wilhelm
Authors:
Kate Wilhelm

Why is Lauren Steele being followed around by a mysterious red-haired ghost? Why is the Pentagon after her? And why doesn't anyone believe her?As a psychologist at the Waycross Clinic in Seattle, she has enough problems. Her clients never seem to listen to anything she says, and her co-workers could use extensive counseling themselves. The last thing she needs is an obnoxious figment of her own imagination showing up at the least opportune moments.But Daniel ("Corky") Corcoran is actually the victim of a fault experimental laser, having been accidentally "dispersed" when the device misfired during a demonstration. He has literally gathered his wits about him by focusing on the last person he saw - Lauren. The trouble is, Corky's attempts at communication only convince Lauren that she is going crazy.Add to this one paranoid colonel from the Pentagon who is convinced that both Corky and Lauren are Soviet spies, and you have a mix of zany and colourful characters caught up in a plot that is quintessential Wilhelm.

Listen, Listen

Kate Wilhelm
Authors:
Kate Wilhelm

This book contains four striking novellas, and the author's own philosophy of fiction writing expressed in her speech as a guest of honour at the 38th World Science Fiction Convention."The Winter Beach" turns what might be a spy story into suspense of a far different order."Julian" begins when its youthful hero trains his telescope on nearby earth rather than the stars and sees a woman who rules the rest of his life."With Thimbles, with Forks and Hope" seems to be the dramatic story of a holiday fishing trip, but once on the ocean we are gripped by a different reality."Moongate", set in the mountains of the Northwest, takes its two men and one woman through many dimensions in time and space."The Uncertain Edge of Reality" casts a new light on Kate Wilhelm's many books and short stories. "This is my subject matter when I write," she says. "I am asking, What actually do we mean by reality, and are we stuck with the one we have? This is what I mean by reality fiction, and usually it is also called science fiction...We are more than simple animals using sophisticated tools in our search for food, security and mates. We are something new on the earth...We can change reality."Kate Wilhelm's writing always has meaning on many levels. Listen, Listen provides a feasts for fans and new readers alike.

'A Brother to Dragons, a Companion of Owls' depicts a future in which survival may not be merely enough - it may be too much, whilst 'The Blue Ladies' studies a disabled woman's abilities to share his vision. 'The Girl Who Fell Into the Sky', winner of the Nebula Award for best novelette, weaves a dreamy tale of love, death and an old piano amid the Kansas plains.These five tales present luminous, absorbing visions of the world as it could be and as it is.

Huysman's Pets

Kate Wilhelm
Authors:
Kate Wilhelm

Stanley Huysman was a Nobel laureate whose visionary theories of his later years, bridging biology and physics, came to be labelled crackpot ideas. The true genius of these experiments became clear only when Huysman's widow called on Drew Lancaster to write the scientist's biography. As Drew deciphers the man's notes, to crack the code of government-funded projects and the secrecy of Huysman's unscrupulous assistant, it is revealed that the great man actually achieved what he set out to do. By genetic manipulation, he induced telepathy in his subjects. But Dohemy is now holding those subjects' children prisoner, and it is only their extraordinary powers that can save them.
