If you’ve been looking for love in all the wrong galaxies, find your alien mate with the Intergalactic Dating Agency! Maelstrom ~ Coriolis ~ Fathom The Big Sky Intergalactic Dating Agency promised them brides from this small, blue planet… Maelstrom As an ocean-dwelling Tritonyri warrior, Maelstrom Amyth sacrificed everything he loved in the centuries-long battle against the cruel and careless land-dwellers. So when he and his pod-brothers are sent to Earth to gently woo Intergalactic Dating Agency brides for his world’s survival, he’s definitely a fish-man out of water. She thought the seas were deep and dark and dangerous, but then she looked to the Big Sky above… Ridley Blake grew up in landlocked Iowa dreaming only of the ocean, but she washed out of Navy SEAL training after nearly drowning during a panic attack that left her with thalassophobia—the fear of deep water. She figures she’ll never dive again, until she is summoned to the middle of Montana under mysterious circumstances. But the troubles they both left behind have bigger teeth than they knew, and now Mael and Ridley have to sink or swim together… Coriolis With her allergy to water — water, that keeps everything on Earth alive — getting worse every day, heiress Marisol Wavercrest assumes she is going to die. So when she’s offered one chance to survive, she has to take it. Except that chance will take her to another world that’s nearly 100% covered by water in the company of an alien merman…who claims she is his fated mate. As commander of the western fleet on Tritona, Coriolis Kelyre fought long and hard against the cruel land-dwellers who poisoned the seas. When he’s given one last task after the war — to take an alien bride to help save his world — he’ll do what he’s told, just as he’s always done, even if the bride he’s sent to retrieve makes him question everything he’s sacrificed. Their predestined union is supposed to save a fragile planet, but a perfect storm is brewing between the enemies seeking to tear them apart and the tidal wave of their rising desire. Fathom If Tritona’s war is over, who feeds the forgotten sharks of war? Designed and trained to be a war-torn planet’s merciless killing machine, Sting was sent to the deeps when the battles ended. But the end of the fighting doesn’t always mean peace. Then one of the Wavercrest women from Earth goes missing, and he’s tasked with finding her. But how can this one small mission soothe the monster he was made to be? She thought the seas were deep and dark and dangerous, but then she looked inside… Lana Wavercrest has been running for what feels like forever. She thought she’d finally found her home on a faraway ocean world…only to discover that her heritage—the same unnerving powers that ruined her life on Earth—is considered a curse on Tritona too. Is there nowhere in the universe she can be herself? But when Tritona’s enemy returns, they will have one last chance to decide the fate of worlds—and their lonely, drifting hearts.

Galaxy Legend Short Stories Vol 4

Ross Rocklynne et al. VM eBooks Fiction

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980. It was founded by an Italian company, World Editions, which was looking to break into the American market. World Editions hired as editor H. L. Gold, who rapidly made Galaxy the leading science fiction (sf) magazine of its time, focusing on stories about social issues rather than technology. Gold published many notable stories during his tenure, including Ray Bradbury's "The Fireman", later expanded as Fahrenheit 451; Robert A. Heinlein's The Puppet Masters; and Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man. In 1952, the magazine was acquired by Robert Guinn, its printer. By the late 1950s, Frederik Pohl was helping Gold with most aspects of the magazine's production. When Gold's health worsened, Pohl took over as editor, starting officially at the end of 1961, though he had been doing the majority of the production work for some time. Under Pohl Galaxy had continued success, regularly publishing fiction by writers such as Cordwainer Smith, Jack Vance, Harlan Ellison, and Robert Silverberg. However, Pohl never won the annual Hugo Award for his stewardship of Galaxy, winning three Hugos instead for its sister magazine, If. In 1969 Guinn sold Galaxy to Universal Publishing and Distribution Corporation (UPD) and Pohl resigned, to be replaced by Ejler Jakobsson. Under Jakobsson the magazine declined in quality. It recovered under James Baen, who took over in mid-1974, but when he left at the end of 1977 the deterioration resumed, and there were financial problems—writers were not paid on time and the schedule became erratic. By the end of the 1970s the gaps between issues were lengthening, and the title was finally sold to Galileo publisher Vincent McCaffrey, who brought out only a single issue in 1980. A brief revival as a semi-professional magazine followed in 1994, edited by H. L. Gold's son, E. J. Gold; this lasted for eight bimonthly issues. At its peak, Galaxy greatly influenced the science fiction field. It was regarded as one of the leading sf magazines almost from the start, and its influence did not wane until Pohl's departure in 1969. Gold brought a "sophisticated intellectual subtlety" to magazine science fiction according to Pohl, who added that "after Galaxy it was impossible to go on being naive." SF historian David Kyle agrees, commenting that "of all the editors in and out of the post-war scene, the most influential beyond any doubt was H. L. Gold". Kyle suggests that the new direction Gold set "inevitably" led to the experimental New Wave, the defining science fiction literary movement of the 1960s.

Mark Twain S Letters Volume 4

Mark Twain Univ of California Press Literary Criticism

"You ought to see Livy & me, now-a-days—you never saw such a serenely satisfied couple of doves in all your life. I spent Jan 1, 2, 3 & 5 there, & left at 8 last night. With my vile temper & variable moods, it seems an incomprehensible miracle that we two have been right together in the same house half the time for a year & a half, & yet have never had a cross word, or a lover's 'tiff,' or a pouting spell, or a misunderstanding, or the faintest shadow of a jealous suspicion. Now isn't that absolutely wonderful? Could I have had such an experience with any other girl on earth? I am perfectly certain I could not. . . . We are to be married on Feb. 2d." So begins Volume 4 of the letters, with Samuel Clemens anticipating his wedding to Olivia L. Langdon. The 338 letters in this volume document the first two years of a loving marriage that would last more than thirty years. They recount, in Clemens's own inimitable voice, a tumultuous time: a growing international fame, the birth of a sickly first child, and the near-fatal illness of his wife. At the beginning of 1870, fresh from the success of The Innocents Abroad, Clemens is on "the long agony" of a lecture tour and planning to settle in Buffalo as editor of the Express. By the end of 1871, he has moved to Hartford and is again on tour, anticipating the publication of Roughing It and the birth of his second child. The intervening letters show Clemens bursting with literary ideas, business schemes, and inventions, and they show him erupting with frustration, anger, and grief, but more often with dazzling humor and surprising self-revelation. In addition to Roughing It, Clemens wrote some enduringly popular short pieces during this period, but he saved some of his best writing for private letters, many of which are published here for the first time.
