Sample Book Insights: #1 When you’re young, you experience everything for the first time, and because it’s happening to you so matter-of-factly, it just is. In midlife, you question everything, and so much energy is wasted questioning the whys of it all. You want to find an angel of thunderstorms that will put out your internal fire. #2 I was born at the Polyclinic Hospital in the Bronx, March 26, 1948. My parents moved me to Sunapee, New Hampshire, where they rented out little bed-and-breakfast cottages, and I was put in a crib at the side of the house. A fox came by and thought I was a cub, and dragged me into the woods. #3 I was brought back to the third dimension when my parents brought me home from the forest. I had never felt more comfortable than being lost in that forest. My mother had lit the fire that would keep me warm for the rest of my life. She had read me parables, Aesop’s Fables, and Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. #4 I was also a fan of the hippie lifestyle, and I loved the song Nature Boy written by a bohemian composer named Eden Ahbez. It tells the story of how one day an enchanted wandering Nature Boy crossed the path of the singer.

A fascinating account of the music and epic social change of 1973, a defining year for David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Elton John, the Rolling Stones, Eagles, Elvis Presley, and the former members of The Beatles. 1973 was the year rock hit its peak while splintering—just like the rest of the world. Ziggy Stardust travelled to America in David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane. The Dark Side of the Moon began its epic run on the Billboard charts, inspired by the madness of Pink Floyd's founder, while all four former Beatles scored top ten albums, two hitting #1. FM battled AM, and Motown battled Philly on the charts, as the era of protest soul gave way to disco, while DJ Kool Herc gave birth to hip hop in the Bronx. The glam rock of the New York Dolls and Alice Cooper split into glam metal and punk. Hippies and rednecks made peace in Austin thanks to Willie Nelson, while outlaw country, country rock, and Southern rock each pointed toward modern country. The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, and the Band played the largest rock concert to date at Watkins Glen. Led Zep’s Houses of the Holy reflected the rise of funk and reggae. The singer songwriter movement led by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell flourished at the Troubadour and Max’s Kansas City, where Bruce Springsteen and Bob Marley shared bill. Elvis Presley’s Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite was NBC’s top-rated special of the year, while Elton John’s albums dominated the number one spot for two and a half months. Just as U.S. involvement in Vietnam drew to a close, Roe v. Wade ignited a new phase in the culture war. While the oil crisis imploded the American dream of endless prosperity, and Watergate’s walls closed in on Nixon, the music of 1973 both reflected a shattered world and brought us together.

RRRAWRRR!!! ZZZZZZTTTTT!!! ZZZZAAAAPPPPP!!! The robots of the 50s and 60s science fiction movies and novels captured our hearts and our imaginations.

With a touch of nostalgia and a little tongue-in-cheek humor, here are fifteen stories from today’s leading science fiction and fantasy authors that take us back to the time of evil robot overlords, invading armies, and not-quite-trustworthy mechanical companions.
