Imagine being one of twenty children, ages seven to fourteen, stranded in a makeshift school bus for thirty-three hours during the worst blizzard to hit Colorado in over fifty years. The gripping narrative of "Children of the Storm" leads you through this haunting experience. The morning of March 26, 1931 began with sixty-degree weather and students excitedly running to board Carl Miller's bus for their routine ride to Pleasant Hill School. By the time they arrived at the schoolhouses, it was dark, windy, and cold---obvious signs of a spring snowstorm. Soon after, following the teahers' orders to drive the children to a nearby home for safety, Miller lost his sense of direction in the ensuing whiteout and lodged the bus in a ditch. When rescuers found the survivors a day and a half later, the blizzard had taken its deadly toll. The media avidly pursued the story, and the children became national and international celebrities. Ariana Harner and Clarkk Secrest have written the first comprehensive account of the tragedy, culling details from interviews, newspaper clippings, and archival documents. This is a tale of media exploitation, false heroism, lifelong heartbreak, and hard-won survival.

The Children of the Sky continues the epic scifi adventure of Hugo award-winning A Fire Upon the Deep! “Vinge is one of the best visionary writers of SF today.” —David Brin Thousands of years in the future, humanity is no longer alone in a universe where a mind's potential is determined by its location in space, from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures, and technology, can function. Nobody knows what strange force partitioned space into these "regions of thought," but when the warring Straumli realm use an ancient Transcendent artifact as a weapon, they unwittingly unleash an awesome power that destroys thousands of worlds and enslaves all natural and artificial intelligence. Ten years have passed on Tines World, and Ravna and the children have survived a war. While there is peace among the Tines, there are those among them—and among the humans—who seek power...and no matter the cost, these malcontents are determined to overturn the fledgling civilization that has taken root since the humans landed.

For thousands of years, evil wizards ruled Toll by force of magic. Common men lived in fear for their lives. Hilan the Peacemaker, a wizard of great power, arose to defend those without magical talent. In an epic battle and at the loss of his life, Hilan cast the spell of Restraint and formed the Flame of Hilan. These Restraints: Time, Depth, and Distance serve to limit the power of magic's operation in Toll. The Order of the Flame, born from the death of Hilan, guards the Flame, heals the sick, and protects the weak by force of good magic. From within its stronghold in Flame Valley, the Order, led by Adna Toulan the Flame Lord, dispatches its wizards into the five great holds of Toll to protect and heal. As the ten-year Gathering of the Lords approaches, the Flame of Hilan is attacked by an unseen cadre of rebel wizards, leaving the Restraints unstable, the operation of magic unreliably dangerous, and the Flame Lord near death. On the same night as the attack on the Flame, war, led by unknown lords and wizards with unbelievable magic control of weather, descends upon the Holds, while at the same time the royal families are betrayed by traitors. The Flame Lord and the loyal Hold Lords have only one chance of survival; find and defeat the attackers of the Flame before the Restraints fail and wild magic is forever loosed in Toll.
