A New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age: Stewart jumps at the chance to travel into space, but it turns out his mission is more dangerous than he thought Stewart Hale is about to turn thirteen, and all he wants is to become a rocket pilot, just like his mom. But ever since she died in a crash, Stewart’s dad won’t hear of it. He refuses even to bring Stewart to the space museum anymore. Virtual reality videos of his hero, pilot Val Thorsten, aren’t enough. Worst of all, Stewart realizes he’s beginning to forget some of his favorite memories of his mom, and wonders if something in the past is being hidden from him. After bumping into a grizzled old space traveler, Stewart finds his chance to escape to the moon. But in a beat-up craft with a pilot who’s well past his prime, this isn’t quite the adventure that Stewart had in mind.

A chance encounter with a washed-up old spacer gives Stewart an unexpected opportunity to sneak off on his own mission to the Moon. But when the old spacer’s intentions turn out to be less than honorable, Stewart realizes he hasn’t found his big break—he’s been shanghaied!

But once she's shanghaied on board the HATTON, Claudia must contend with not only the alien environment, real live aliens, the ship's hardhearted captain, but also her growing attraction to sexy ship's officer Denys DuChamp.Denys is on a mission from a war-torn future. He's determined to do anything to save his time-no matter what. If it means keeping Claudia-who continues to refer to him as an "alien lizard terrorist"-prisoner, so be it. Even if it means destroying their burgeoning love-so be it. Denys can be as stubborn and pigheaded as a bulldog when he's on a mission.However, Claudia isn't exactly the helpless prisoner type. She has a few tricks up her proverbial sleeve that come in mighty handy when she has to save her world-and her man-from the evil alien Sirens.Note: This book is a reissue; it was previously released several years ago by another publisher.

Showcasing the evocative artwork created by John Moll for this special edition, James A. Michener’s The Watermen is a unique tribute to the adventurous seafarers of the Chesapeake Bay. Excerpted from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author’s classic Chesapeake, this enthralling novel has a unity and a spirit all its own, telling the story of the bay and its wildlife, but especially of the watermen, from their favorite pastimes to their rivalries in hunting, oystering, racing, and fighting. Gorgeously illustrated, brilliantly conceived, The Watermen is a narrative and visual feast from one of America’s favorite storytellers. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for Chesapeake “Another of James Michener’s great mines of narrative, character and lore.”—The Wall Street Journal “[A] marvelous panorama of history seen in the lives of symbolic people of the ages . . . an emotionally and intellectually appealing book.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Michener’s most ambitious work of fiction in theme and scope.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Magnificently written . . . one of those rare novels that is enthusiastically passed from friend to friend.”—Associated Press
