Americans love to colonize their beaches. But when storms threaten, high-ticket beachfront construction invariably takes precedence over coastal environmental concerns—we rescue the buildings, not the beaches. As Cornelia Dean explains in Against the Tide, this pattern is leading to the rapid destruction of our coast. But her eloquent account also offers sound advice for salvaging the stretches of pristine American shore that remain. The story begins with the tale of the devastating hurricane that struck Galveston, Texas, in 1900—the deadliest natural disaster in American history, which killed some six thousand people. Misguided residents constructed a wall to prevent another tragedy, but the barrier ruined the beach and ultimately destroyed the town's booming resort business. From harrowing accounts of natural disasters to lucid ecological explanations of natural coastal processes, from reports of human interference and construction on the shore to clear-eyed elucidation of public policy and conservation interests, this book illustrates in rich detail the conflicting interests, short-term responses, and long-range imperatives that have been the hallmarks of America's love affair with her coast. Intriguing observations about America's beaches, past and present, include discussions of Hurricane Andrew's assault on the Gulf Coast, the 1962 northeaster that ravaged one thousand miles of the Atlantic shore, the beleaguered beaches of New Jersey and North Carolina's rapidly vanishing Outer Banks, and the sand-starved coast of southern California. Dean provides dozens of examples of human attempts to tame the ocean—as well as a wealth of lucid descriptions of the ocean's counterattack. Readers will appreciate Against the Tide's painless course in coastal processes and new perspective on the beach.

Problems, Problems, Problems . . . The world had been a paradise until the Fall, when the holders of the control codes for the world-spanning program called "Mother" fell out in civil war. The United Free States felt well defended behind its screen of elite Dragon carriers that held sway in the Atlantis Ocean. But when New Destiny proved to have dragon carriers of its own, and more of them, the linch-pin of the UFS defense went out the window. Now, with the UFS' back to the wall, everything seems to be going New Destiny's way. But there are problems. Edmund Talbot had never really studied naval warfare, but what he didn't know about war in general hadn't been written. So when he took over the UFS navy, at its moment of utter defeat, New Destiny's problems were just starting. And little did the instigator of the civil war, Paul Boman, know that his closest confidante was the daughter of the UFS' head of intelligence. Megan Travante, for four years mired in a concubine's harem, has just been recruited to be an agent in the enemy camp. Of course, she's also planning on murdering Paul, just as soon as she gets a chance. Herzer Herrick, the UFS' premier ground fighter, has problems of his own. A man who's "good with his hands" he's also found he's good with a dragon. Which is why he's the XO of a dragon contingent instead of fighting in the front lines of the ground battle. With a crew of brand new pilots, undertrained dragons, untrained support personnel, the bitchiest dragon CO on Earth and a ship's commander who's half cat, he has enough problems for any one man. And then he gets an order that drops a whole passel more in his lap. The battle of dragon carrier on dragon carrier is about to start, with the fleets pursuing each other over half the Atlantis Ocean in a game of cat-and-mouse. But all the cats are on the side of the UFS. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

The eleven short stories in Low Tide in the Desert celebrate a master storyteller's longtime fascination with Nevada, from the deliberately hallucinogenic urban distractions of Reno and Las Vegas to disturbing legends born in Jackpot and Battle Mountain. Some of Kranes's characters we want to know; others we would go out of our way to avoid. But he treats his vivid cross-section of humanity with dignity and even a tenderness completely without sentimentality. Some win, some lose, some are transformed, but, quintessential Nevadans, they all hope.
