Download or read book Migration written by James P. Hogan and published by Baen Publishing Enterprises. This book was released on 2010-05-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The world of the past eventually died in the conflagration toward which it had been doggedly heading. A more fragmented and diversified order has emerged from the ruins and . technology has reappeared to a greater or lesser degree in some places and not at all in others. Unique among them is the nation-state of Sofi, with an exceptional population that has rediscovered advanced science. However, as the old patterns that led to ruin before begin to reassert themselves across the rest of the world, a scientific-political movement within Sofi embarks on a years-long project to build a generation starship that will enable them to create their own world elsewhere. The circumstances and thinking of future generations growing up in the totally unknown situation of a space environment cannot be known. Accordingly, the mission will include different groups of idealists, reformers, misfits, and dissidents who are not satisfied with the world-in-miniature that constitutes the original mother ship, to go out and build whatever they want. Hence, what arrives at the distant star generations hence will be a flotilla of variously run city states, frontier towns, religious monasteries, pleasure resorts, urban crushes, rural spreads, academic retreats, and who-knows what else. The trouble began, of course, when all the old patterns that they thought they were getting away from started reappearing . . .

Download or read book Path to Destiny written by Clara M. Miller and published by Virtualbookworm Publishing. This book was released on 2005-03 with total page 456 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Path to Destiny," the ninth book in the Brothers Series and fifth in the Shamrocks Saga, continues the story begun in "Shamrocks in the Heather" with the adventures of the rapidly maturing younger members of the Quigley clan. World War II is now virtually over and the Quigley cousins (by whatever name they're known) are struggling to cope with the idea that they have, indeed, survived. One by one and each in his own way they begin to adapt to civilian life. As always, unexpected coincidences seem to dictate their fate. After all the losses the family suffered during the war, it's a relief for them to be able to plan weddings and births instead of funerals. Mapping out their futures is a novel not to mention challenging job. Men who'd been warriors now tried to force themselves into new roles as husbands and, eventually, fathers. Roarke and his pregnant wife, Mary Glare, arrive home in England to a tumultuous reception. Little did any of them know that Lucifer, unable to learn more about Dora and Dosia, plans to attack the pregnant women in the family in hopes of learning the secret of the twins' origin. Since the entire family is now in on the "secret" the threat is real. A stranger arrives at Tim's estate during one of the Quigley gatherings and warns of a demon attack. His name is Andre Giroux and he's an old friend of Ronnie's, a fact that arouses alarm in Ronnie's fiance, Doug MacKinnon. The attack materializes and Za'aphi'el is forced to deal with it although the Guardian Angels do their part as well. Other arrivals at the gathering are more welcome than the demons. Bart and Bert Kennison, finally returned from the European Theater, surprise Dora and Dosia. The two sets of twins make plans to marry and move to the United States. This decision was partially dictated by the Old Man who has plans for the twins interference in more of his infernal son's machinations. Little do either of the couples know that, in moving to New York, they'll do battle with the Mob as well as diabolical forces. Still, those who know the twins, won't be surprised who wins. This is not a religious book nor meant to endorse or promote any type of belief. It is intended to provide a verbal roller-coaster ride. Plus, I've grown to quite like The Old Man. Enjoy "
