Gladiator Sented by Emma

GLADIATOR, the author's third published novel was, in fact, a re-write of "Titan," an allegorical fantasy which Knopf is subject to its being completely re-written. However, Wylie wanted his first published novel to be a serious realistic work which would make a good impression on the critics, so he wrote and published HEAVY LADEN (1928) and BABES AND SUCKLINGS (1929), before reluctantly re-writing GLADIATOR. Published in March 1930, GLADIATOR sold a mere 2568 copies and Wylie terminated his contract with Knopf on the convenient grounds that the novel had not been given adequate promotion.

Blindsight Sented by Musa

Two months since sixty-five thousand alien objects clenched around the Earth like a luminous fist, screaming to the heavens as the atmosphere burned them to ash. Two months since that moment of brief, bright surveillance by agents unknown. Two months of silence, while a world holds its breath.

Star Dragon
Star Dragon Sented by Paul

The SS Cygni probe sent back hours of video, captured by the Biolathe AI, but only a few minutes mattered--the four minutes that showed a creature made of fire, living , moving, dancing in the plasma fire of the double star's accretion disk. A dragon made of star stuff, so alien that only a human expedition to observe and perhaps capture it, could truly understand them
