A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Lean, relentless, and incandescent.” —Colson Whitehead

From the acclaimed author of Stories of Your Life and Others—the basis for the Academy Award –nominated film Arrival: a groundbreaking new collection of short fiction.

“THE UNIVERSE BEGAN AS AN ENORMOUS BREATH BEING HELD.”

In these nine stunningly original, provocative, and poignant stories, Ted Chiang tackles some of humanity’s oldest questions along with new quandaries only he could imagine.

In “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate,” a portal through time forces a fabric seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and second chances. In “Exhalation,” an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications that are literally universal. In “Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom,” the ability to glimpse into alternate universes necessitates a radically new examination of the concepts of choice and free will.

Including stories being published for the first time as well as some of his rare and classic uncollected work, Exhalation is Ted Chiang at his best: profound, sympathetic—revelatory.

The Vanishing (Fogg Lake)

$27.00 - $21.60

(as of Jun 24,2019 18:20:31 UTC – Details)



From New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz comes a new gripping romantic suspense trilogy fraught with danger and enigma.

Decades ago in the small town of Fogg Lake, “The Incident” occurred: an explosion in the cave system that released unknown gases.  The residents slept for two days.  When they woke up they discovered that things had changed—they had changed. Some started having visions.  Others heard ominous voices.  And then the scientists from a mysterious government agency arrived. Determined not to become research subjects of strange experiments, the residents of Fogg Lake blamed the “hallucinations” on local mushrooms, and the story worked. But now it has become apparent that the eerie effects of The Incident are showing up in the descendants of Fogg Lake… 

Catalina Lark and Olivia LeClair, best friends and co-owners of an investigation firm in Seattle, use what they call their “other sight” to help solve cases.  When Olivia suddenly vanishes one night, Cat frantically begins the search for her friend. No one takes the disappearance seriously except Slate Arganbright, an agent from a shadowy organization known only as The Foundation, who shows up at her firm with a cryptic warning.

A ruthless killer is hunting the only witnesses to a murder that occurred in the Fogg Lake caves fourteen years ago—Catalina and Olivia. And someone intends to make both women vanish.
