A sovereign empire, the Consortium, defies both science and religion in its race to colonise the Solar System. They carved a God from ones and zeros. It searches for the Devil. A hidden planet, Bastion, lies home to a descendant colony of humanity. Its original inhabitants are thought long gone. But something stirs beneath the surface.

When the voiceless humanity which has been barred for centuries from the doors
of the bastion awakens with an active consciousness, it will want to peer into that
bastion. Will then human beings who never let a chip of artistic stone drop even ...

The essays collected in this Reader represent some of Mahadevi Varma's most famous writings on the "woman question" in India. The collection also includes an introduction to her life, with biographical notes, an analysis of her importance in the field of Hindi letters, as well as a selection of her poems. The editor has included essays that reflect not only Mahadevi's ideas about the place of women in the home and the world during the nationalist period in India, but also articles that reveal her dreams and hopes for the future (and the past) of the Hindi-Urdu language. While many of these essays were written during the 1920s and 1930s when Mahadevi served as editor for the literary journal Chand, some of them appear to have been written much later, after India gained independence. The translators have tried to remain faithful to the Hindi, often keeping the syntax of the Hindi original.

Twice the combined might of Ynis Aielle's greatest heroes and wizards has hurled back the demon armies of Morgan Thalasi. Always the Black Warlock has rebounded, stronger and more evil. But never has he wielded such power as now. With the Staff of Death, Thalasi can raise a new army from out of the very ground -- soldiers who cannot be killed because they are already dead. As the Black Warlock and his fearsome general -- the foul wraith that was once Hollis Mitchell -- prepares a devastating attack, the humans and elves of Ynis Aielle are staggered by a fresh calamity. The beautiful Rhiannon, daughter of the Emerald Witch, has been captured by Mitchell and given over to his dark master. Now the last hope of defeating Thalasi -- and Rhiannon's last hope as well -- lies at the heart of a mountain, guarded by a dragon as old as the world itself. . .

Machie Ibeke is on the verge of becoming a pilot of her own Hawk in the West African Union Military when the final flight before her promotion is interrupted by a horrifying terrorist attack. The surviving aircrew is grounded and ordered to maintain their silence about the possible emergence of an old enemy so ruthless its sole purpose is to wipe out humanity. In the past, the fanatical Gaia Cult has used the potent Inferi Plague Virus as a terrorist weapon. The zombie virus kills, brings the dead back to life, and instills in the resurrected Scourge the overwhelming need to bite and spread the contagion. Living with the knowledge that the world is in danger is difficult, made more complicated by the arrival of visiting family, a rogue A.I. hiding in her apartment building, and questionable activity in the Bamako Megacity. If Machie’s suspicions are correct and the dangerous Gaia Cult has returned, then an apocalyptic outbreak is imminent, and it will be up to her to save her loved ones and find a safe haven in a dead world.

The Bastion was humanity's last hope against the fearsome undead creatures known as the Inferi Scourge. A fortified city with a high wall, surrounded by lush land rich with all the resources needed to survive, protected by high mountain summits, and a massive gate to secure the only pass into the valley, the Bastion became the last stronghold of the living on earth. But one fateful day, the gate failed and the Inferi Scourge destroyed the human settlements outside the walls and trapped the survivors inside the city. Now decades later, the last remaining humans are struggling to survive in a dying city as resources and hope dwindle.Vanguard Maria Martinez has lived her whole life within the towering walls of steel. She yearns for a life away from the overcrowded streets, rolling blackouts, and food shortages, but there is no hope for anyone as long as the Inferi Scourge howl outside the high walls. Her only refuge from the daily grind is in the arms of her lover, Dwayne Reichardt, an officer in the Bastion Constabulary. Both are highly-decorated veterans of the last disastrous push against the Inferi Scourge. Their secret affair is her only happiness.Then one day Maria is summoned to meet with a mysterious representative from the Science Warfare Division and is offered the opportunity to finally destroy the Inferi Scourge in the valley and close the gate. The rewards of success are great, but she will have to sacrifice everything, possibly even her life, to accomplish the ultimate goal of securing the future of humanity and saving it from extinction.

With only a few friends in the squad willing to support her, Mandolin tries to endure long enough to convince someone of authority of who she really is so that she can get back to her father who is stationed on the great space station, Bastion Kord.

When she goes too far with her humiliation of her kind-hearted rival, Diana King, Mandolin learns a brutal lesson that all people have a breaking point.

Still somewhat at odds with the young women in her squad, Mandolin must face a greater challenge than she has yet faced: surviving the unforgiving CQC circle of pain.Each day of close quarters combat training pits her against every member of the squad, every member circling her like wolves circling for the kill, and she must defend against their brutal attacks or be maimed without mercy. Worse yet, she must join the pack and do the same for each and every one of her compatriots, rushing into the circle to beat them to the ground below, no quarter given. Her choices lie clear: either step into the circle, or head to the Discipline Square for corporal punishment.Furthermore, a simple mistake puts her at odds with her squad partner, Susan, and Mandolin soon finds herself choosing between her new friend or holding a personal grudge in revenge.Finally, tempers flare when the entire 837th declares they've had enough, and a company wide rumble occurs during Mess at breakfast with squad 6 caught right in the middle of it.
