Description
THEY'RE RAPING OUR MOON Two weeks before the American inauguration in January 2017, a flash of light in the distant Kuiper Belt heralds the approach of an "Anomalous Natural Object" heading toward Earth, setting off a crisis in America and across the globe. Astronomer Pauline Theodorakis, PhD, is one of the first to see it, using a 1.2 meter telescope at a very small observatory in southwestern New York state. Deciphering its intent is critical, but is a response possible? Or does the world stand by even as the new incoming president-elect tweets, "They're raping our Moon." The question on everyone's mind: Where will the Object go next? THE ZIPPER ZAPPER An Almighty Widgets Corp product tester must outwit the latest "smartjacket" he wears before it kills him. RENEWALS A man's brain keeps getting new bodies to live in as decades pass.
