Time to Kill (Sniper Series #6)

by Jack Coughlin Donald A. Davis

From the bestselling authors of Shooter and Running the Maze comes a chillingly realistic thriller about Islamic terrorists bent on delivering Egypt into the hands of America's archenemy--Iran. In the newest page-turner in the New York Times bestselling series featuring American sniper Kyle Swanson, an American accountant is murdered in his Maryland home by Iranian assassins. A goodwill visit to Cairo by Iran's national soccer team ends in a bloodbath. Egyptian missiles rain down on an Iranian Navy ship in the Red Sea, and Iran retaliates by landing elite troops at a popular Egyptian resort and attacking tourist hotels. The Muslim Brotherhood is on the march to bring Egypt under the political control of powerful Iran. Running the coup is a ruthless double agent called the Pharaoh, who will stop at nothing to establish an obedient puppet regime on Israel's border, and take complete control of the Suez Canal, the choke point for the world's oil flow. The United States will never allow that to happen, but options are limited and things are moving fast. Washington turns to Marine master sniper Kyle Swanson and the beautiful Egyptologist Tianha Bialy, a British Secret Service agent, who have been trapped behind the lines. Given free rein to attack the Iranian invaders, Swanson goes on a dangerous mission to prevent a total war in the Middle East, no matter what the cost.

Time to Say Goodbye

by Reed Scowen

The time has come to call it quits, to ask Quebec to leave Canada, and to forge a new nation without it. Time to Say Goodbye is a powerfully argued challenge to Canadians to accept that Quebec's national aspirations can never be satisfied within the confines of Canadian Confederation, and furthermore, continued efforts to accommodate Quebec damage Canada in ways it can no longer afford.Canada without Quebec will be a more prosperous, generous, and hospitable nation than the linguistically and politically distorted one that has emerged from the past twenty years - since the first coming-to-power in Quebec of the Parti Quebecois. Reed Scowen, an anglophone Québécker and former member of the Quebec legislature, argues that Quebec's political identity is based on language and ethnicity. Quebec has become an authentic nation-state. The rest of Canada has no comparable political ideology and will never comfortably accommodate Quebec.While many do not share the caustic view of Quebec Premier Bouchard - that Canada is not a country - many do worry that Canada, without Quebec, will break apart. But Scowen suggests that the breakup of Canada will be more likely the result of the continued, futile manoeuvres to satisfy Quebec's national aspirations. Far better, he argues, to take a positive view: build a country based on the values, traditions, and procedures that the other nine provinces share.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Time Travel: A History

by James Gleick

From the acclaimed author of The Information and Chaos, here is a mind-bending exploration of time travel: its subversive origins, its evolution in literature and science, and its influence on our understanding of time itself. The story begins at the turn of the previous century, with the young H. G. Wells writing and rewriting the fantastic tale that became his first book and an international sensation: The Time Machine. It was an era when a host of forces was converging to transmute the human understanding of time, some philosophical and some technological: the electric telegraph, the steam railroad, the discovery of buried civilizations, and the perfection of clocks. James Gleick tracks the evolution of time travel as an idea that becomes part of contemporary culture--from Marcel Proust to Doctor Who, from Jorge Luis Borges to Woody Allen. He investigates the inevitable looping paradoxes and examines the porous boundary between pulp fiction and modern physics. Finally, he delves into a temporal shift that is unsettling our own moment: the instantaneous wired world, with its all-consuming present and vanishing future.(With a color frontispiece and black-and-white illustrations throughout) From the Hardcover edition.

Time Travel: The Popular Philosophy of Narrative

by David Wittenberg

This book argues that time travel fiction is a narrative “laboratory,” a setting for thought experiments in which essential theoretical questions about storytelling—and, by extension, about the philosophy of temporality, history, and subjectivity—are represented in the form of literal devices and plots. Drawing on physics, philosophy, narrative theory, psychoanalysis, and film theory, the book links innovations in time travel fiction to specific shifts in the popularization of science, from evolutionary biology in the late 1800s, through relativity and quantum physics in the mid–20th century, to more recent “multiverse” cosmologies. Wittenberg shows how increasing awareness of new scientific models leads to surprising innovations in the literary “time machine,” which evolves from a “vehicle” used chiefly for sociopolitical commentary into a psychological and narratological device capable of exploring with great sophistication the temporal structure and significance of subjects, viewpoints, and historical events. The book covers work by well-known time travel writers such as H. G. Wells, Edward Bellamy, Robert Heinlein, Samuel Delany, and Harlan Ellison, as well as pulp fiction writers of the 1920s through the 1940s, popular and avant-garde postwar science fiction, television shows such as “The Twilight Zone” and “Star Trek,” and current cinema. Literature, film, and TV are read alongside theoretical work ranging from Einstein, Schrödinger, and Stephen Hawking to Gérard Genette, David Lewis, and Gilles Deleuze. Wittenberg argues that even the most mainstream audiences of popular time travel fiction and cinema are vigorously engaged with many of the same questions about temporality, identity, and history that concern literary theorists, media and film scholars, and philosophers.

The Time Traveler's Guide to Restoration Britain: A Handbook for Visitors to the Seventeenth Century: 1660-1699

by Ian Mortimer

The past is another country – this is your guidebook, from nationally bestselling author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England. Imagine you could see the smiles of the people mentioned in Samuel Pepys’s diary, hear the shouts of market traders, and touch their wares. How would you find your way around? Where would you stay? What would you wear? Where might you be suspected of witchcraft? Where would you be welcome? This is an up-close-and-personal look at Britain between the Restoration of King Charles II in 1660 and the end of the century. The last witch is sentenced to death just two years before Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica, the bedrock of modern science, is published. Religion still has a severe grip on society and yet some—including the king—flout every moral convention they can find. There are great fires in London and Edinburgh; the plague disappears; a global trading empire develops. Over these four dynamic decades, the last vestiges of medievalism are swept away and replaced by a tremendous cultural flowering. Why are half the people you meet under the age of twenty-one? What is considered rude? And why is dueling so popular? Mortimer delves into the nuances of daily life to paint a vibrant and detailed picture of society at the dawn of the modern world as only he can.

Time Was: Isaac Asimov's I-Bots

by Steve Perry Gary A. Braunbeck

Isaac Asimov's I-Bots are back. Half-human, half-robot, these unique cybernetic creations--first introduced in Asimov's "Robot" novels, including "I, Robot"--live on in this brand-new novel by two of SF's rising stars. Annabelle Donohoe, the CEO of World Tech, is mad as hell." "Her dreams of world domination died the day Zac Robillard discovered her evil plans and fled World Tech, taking his greatest creation, his beloved I-Bots, and all his research, with him. More than super machines, more than robots, the I-Bots are eerily human in appearance, but not in abilities. Their genetic components - based on human DNA - and mechanical infrastructures give them physical strength and powers humans can only imagine, and a measure of free will impossible in robots." "Annabelle wants them back and will stop at nothing to get her way, including hiring the world's deadliest assassin to find Zac, and his I-Bots - the beautiful Radiant and Killaine, clever Itazura, Psy-4, and Stonewall - and bring them in...or kill them. For if Annabelle cannot have the I-Bots she vows that no one else can either. But Janus, the ruthless killer, is not the only hunter they must elude..." "Surrounded by enemies, Zac and the I-Bots can find no safe place, not even the streets. In the year 2013, the Silver Metal Stompers, a neo-Nazi gang, roam the nation's cities wreaking havoc on robots, especially Scrappers, out-moded homeless robots who huddle in hobo camps, rusting away unless they are repaired by a mysterious humanitarian and robotarian called DocScrap. In an unlucky twist of fate, the Stompers discover DocScrap is none other than Zac Robillard and that the I-Bots aren't exactly human...and vow to crush Zac and the I-Bots into wreckage.

Time's Eye

by Arthur C. Clarke

For eons, Earth has been under observation by the Firstborn, beings almost as old as the universe itself. The Firstborn are unknown to humankind-- until they act. In an instant, Earth is carved up and reassembled like a huge jigsaw puzzle. Suddenly the planet and every living thing on it no longer exist in a single timeline. Instead, the world becomes a patchwork of eras, from prehistory to 2037, each with its own indigenous inhabitants. Scattered across the planet are floating silver orbs impervious to all weapons and impossible to communicate with. Are these technologically advanced devices responsible for creating and sustaining the rifts in time? Are they cameras through which inscrutable alien eyes are watching? Or are they something stranger and more terrifying still? The answer may lie in the ancient city of Babylon, where two groups of refugees from 2037--three cosmonauts returning to Earth from the International Space Station, and three United Nations peacekeepers on a mission in Afghanistan--have detected radio signals: the only such signals on the planet, apart from their own. The peacekeepers find allies in nineteenth-century British troops and in the armies of Alexander the Great. The astronauts, crash-landed in the steppes of Asia, join forces with the Mongol horde led by Genghis Khan. The two sides set out for Babylon, each determined to win the race for knowledge and the power that lies within. Yet the real power is beyond human control, perhaps even human understanding. As two great armies face off before the gates of Babylon, it watches, waiting...

Times Square Red, Times Square Blue

by Samuel R. Delany

If one street in America can claim to be the most infamous, it is surely 42nd Street. Between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, 42nd Street was once known for its peep shows, street corner hustlers and movie houses. Over the last two decades the notion of safety-from safe sex and safe neighborhoods, to safe cities and safe relationships-has overcome 42nd Street, giving rise to a Disney store, a children's theater, and large, neon-lit cafes. 42nd Street has, in effect, become a family tourist attraction for visitors from Berlin, Tokyo, Westchester, and New Jersey's suburbs.Samuel R. Delany sees a disappearance not only of the old Times Square, but of the complex social relationships that developed there: the points of contact between people of different classes and races in a public space. In Times Square Red, Times Square Blue, Delany tackles the question of why public restrooms, peepshows, and tree-filled parks are necessary to a city's physical and psychological landscape. He argues that starting in 1985, New York City criminalized peep shows and sex movie houses to clear the way for the rebuilding of Times Square. Delany's critique reveals how Times Square is being "renovated" behind the scrim of public safety while the stage is occupied by gentrification. Times Square Red, Times Square Blue paints a portrait of a society dismantling the institutions that promote communication between classes, and disguising its fears of cross-class contact as "family values." Unless we overcome our fears and claim our "community of contact," it is a picture that will be replayed in cities across America.
