First contact didn’t go as planned… Time Gate 8, one of humanity’s portals between the stars, has been overrun by a mysterious alien intelligence, and the planet Luddeccea is now cut off. Haunted by those she left behind, Commander Noa Sato is on a desperate mission to save her homeworld. Navigating the ancient Ark, she seeks a hidden gate that will transport her ship to Earth and the Galactic Fleet. But the Luddeccean system harbors dangers, and so does her crew. The only crew member she completely trusts is James Sinclair, but he doesn’t trust himself. James isn’t the man he once was. He has a hunger that is never sated, kills without regrets, and is fitted with extraordinary augments he doesn’t remember getting. Can James control his augments, or will they control him? In a future where almost all humans are augmented, James’s answer and Noa’s mission will determine the fate of the human race … and the enemy is already within the gates.

An early explorer of modern art, Paul Gauguin left France for Tahiti, where he immersed himself in Maori mythology. Noa Noa, his intimate journal of writings, watercolors, and woodcuts, was discovered years after he left the island. For the 100-year anniversary of Gauguin's death, Marc Le Bot revisits the most beautiful pages of this under-appreciated masterpiece. 'Farewell, hospitable land, delicious land, home of freedom and beauty! I leave after two years, twenty years younger, more uncouth therefore than on arrival and yet more educated. Yes, the savages have taught many things to the old civilized man many things, those illiterates, about the science of living and the art of being happy.' Paul Gauguin - A writer and critic, Marc le Bot was a professor of art history at the University of Paris. He is the author of a number of publications on 20th century art. 60 illustrations

Noa Noa is one of the best examples of a nineteenth-century artist’s book. Part-travelogue, part-autobiography and rich in imagery, it sealed Gauguin’s reputation as a painter of the tropics. This edition brings the original co-authored text of Noa Noa to the public, allowing a new interpretation of Gauguin to emerge. Written together with the poet Charles Morice, it sets up a dichotomy between the ‘savage painter’ and the ‘civilised poet’, one which reveals the painter’s careful orchestration of his persona and manipulation of its reception. Claire Moran’s introduction situates the text within Gauguin’s aesthetic, detailing its complex history and signalling its themes. Noa Noa is followed by a first print edition of the Manuscrit tiré du Livre des métiers de Vehbi-Zumbul Zadi, an artistic treatise, penned by Gauguin. Through both texts, Gauguin emerges as an extraordinary teller of tales, a painter for whom the truth was never black and white.
