*Bestseller in Science Fiction Alternative History* WINNER! 2014 Stellar Sci-fi Contest For Science Fiction Dystopian Novel. The bloodless corporate coup of 2020 swept away every vestige of government, resulting in an ongoing struggle for dominance and survival of the fittest. The battle becomes more vicious day by day in the face of accelerating climate change, limited food supplies, and clean air only for the elite. Caught in the middle is Dr. Zoe Hidalaga, a MediCorp organ harvester, who has contracted a deadly retro virus that killed her husband and has resulted in her being declared an unfit mother for her daughter. Unknown to Zoe, the virus (VMAS) is being manipulated by the head of MediCorp as a means of population reduction—a program of euthanasia to liquidate everyone already infected, while distributing a vaccine only to the privileged. Zoe is determined to rescue her daughter and save her from this heartless, profit-motivated, technocratic society.

Read More... From Alexander von Humboldt to Charles and Anne Lindbergh, these are stories of people of great vision and daring whose achievements continue to inspire us today, brilliantly told by master historian David McCullough.
The bestselling author of Truman and John Adams, David McCullough has written profiles of exceptional men and women past and present who have not only shaped the course of history or changed how we see the world but whose stories express much that is timeless about the human condition.
Here are Alexander von Humboldt, whose epic explorations of South America surpassed the Lewis and Clark expedition; Harriet Beecher Stowe, “the little woman who made the big war”; Frederic Remington; the extraordinary Louis Agassiz of Harvard; Charles and Anne Lindbergh, and their fellow long-distance pilots Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Beryl Markham; Harry Caudill, the Kentucky lawyer who awakened the nation to the tragedy of Appalachia; and David Plowden, a present-day photographer of vanishing America.
Different as they are from each other, McCullough’s subjects have in common a rare vitality and sense of purpose. These are brave companions: to each other, to David McCullough, and to the reader, for with rare storytelling ability McCullough brings us into the times they knew and their very uncommon lives.
