Gladiator
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
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.

Behemoth
