Download and read online Worlds Apart Book 01 Meridian in PDF and EPUB 2,000 years after the fall of the Galactic Commonwealth, the remote colonies of Sapphire and Republic have recovered the technology for starflight and set out to rediscover humanity’s lost worlds. The mighty Pathfinder Ship Pegasus is launched on a 300 year mission of discovery. But the combined Sapphirean and Republicker crew of Pegasus will have to learn to work with each other. Sapphireans are freedom-loving individualists, while the culture of Republic is collectivized and authoritarian. 2,000 years of societal evolution on 13,000 worlds have produced a wildly divergent range of cultures on the colonies humanity left behind. The worlds they encounter will often seem more alien than human. The people of Meridian, for example, seem to be transforming into weird insectoid hive creatures. Also, they are dangerous and hostile; intent on capturing the landing team and using them to conquer Sapphire and Republic ... which makes the story more interesting. Did I mention the ship’s AI evolves sentience and tries to kill everybody? That also happens. Pegasus is commanded by Bill Keeler – a historian whose sarcastic wit is exceeded only by his contempt for regulations. Also, he drinks. His conniving shrew of a First Officer, Goneril Lear, plots to take over the command she believes should have been hers! His Tactical Officer – Phil Redfire, a performance artist whose art consisted of blowing up buildings – plots to stop her. The Worlds Apart novels have been described as vivid, hilarious and reminiscent of Douglass Adams in his heyday. Meridian is the first of 12. These novels have been enjoyed by thousands of people worldwide, and are being published in e-book formats for the first time.

Download and read online Blue Meridian in PDF and EPUB In 1969 Peter Matthiessen set out with the expedition led by Peter Gimbel, whose aim was to find and film underwater for the first time the most dangerous of all sea creatures - the great white shark. Acting as the expedition's chronicler and spare hand (both on the surface and below), Matthiessen accompanied the crew from the Carribean to the whaling grounds off the Durban coast, to various islands in the Indian Ocean, to Ceylon, and finally to success off the bleak south coast of Australia. Blue Meridian records the awesome experience of swimming in open water among hundreds of sharks, the beauties of strange seas and landscapes and the camaraderie, humour and tension of people who live in close proximity and risk their lives day by day.
