    Station Zero (19)

    Reviews Nerd Much?, "Best New Upcoming Sci-Fi & Fantasy Books of 2019" - Peter McPherson "Reeve concludes the fast-paced Railhead trilogy with Station Zero, which sends a retired Zen Starling on one more adventure. . . .The ending of Black Light Express left us with plenty of questions, and knowing Reeve, we will find just the right amount of answers in this adventurous finale." - Nerd Much?, "Best New Upcoming Sci-Fi & Fantasy Books of 2019" January 1, 2019 What happens after the adventure of a lifetime? For Zen, it's a safe, comfortable life of luxury. But it's not what Zen wants. He misses the thrill of riding the rails, of dodging danger, and of breathing the air of different planets. Most of all of course he misses Nova, lost to him forever in a distant world. But then one day a mysterious message arrives, and that's all Zen needs to head right off, ready for anything. Except that no one could be ready for what he finds...Thrilling, thought-provoking, and breathtaking, this finale to the Railhead trilogy weaves a web of wonder, full of characters and events you will never forget.

    Aliens at Home: Studying Extreme Environment Species to Learn About Extraterrestrial Life (16)

    Short of intergalactic travel or aliens landing on Earth, it may seem there is no way for us to learn about extraterrestrial life. However, as this captivating volume details, we may know more than we think. Science and sci-fi enthusiasts will be fascinated to discover that the conditions of various extreme environments on Earth—the Arctic, deep underground, and deep sea, to name a few—are analogous to those of various regions of space. By examining the terrestrial species—or extremophiles—that thrive in these conditions and their survival mechanisms, we can begin to understand extraterrestrial life before ever making contact.

    Genetic Engineering (19)

    The ability to alter the genetic code is one of the most powerful aspects of modern science. With genetic engineering, scientists can make a mouse's muscles bigger, create animals that are virtually identical to one another, and cause mosquitoes to pass fatal genes to their offspring, halting the spread of disease-causing organisms. Advances in gene editing, the ability to directly manipulate DNA, have placed even greater power in researchers' hands and renewed ethical concerns surrounding the implementation of genetic engineering. This comprehensive volume explores these topics, describes the methods by which scientists produce genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and highlights ethical issues associated with GMOs.
