Описание: From science fiction icon Alan Dean Foster comes a blazing Pip & Flinx adventure for fans of the green-eyed redhead with awesome mental powers and his miniature flying dragon. In this dazzling novel, Flinx confirms his status as the galaxy's greatest magnet for big trouble. Wandering out there in some remote region of the galaxy is a gargantuan sentient Tar-Aiym weapons' system. All Flinx has to do--while his pals look after his injured love Clarity Held--is find the hefty object and persuade it to knock out the monstrous evil that is hurtling through space to waste the entire Commonwealth. A no-brainer, really, especially for Flinx, who is never without his loyal entourage of official snoops, crazed zealots, assorted goons, and the occasional assassin. Indeed, the boy wonder and his mini-drag, Pip, are eager to commence their heroic task . . . just as soon as Flinx visits Visaria--a dangerously depraved planet--to convince himself that humans are indeed worth saving. The chances of stumbling across high moral values and utopian ideals don't look promising-what with Flinx playing a lawless Pied Piper to a gang of lying, thieving juvenile delinquents. But prospects really go south when Flinx runs afoul of the corrupt planet's ruthless crime king. Still, life is full of surprises, and Flinx is about to get smacked by a passel of them--by turns devastating, heartening, and positively jaw-dropping. For although Flinx came to Visaria to plumb the enigma of humankind, there's another mystery waiting here, a shocking clue about his own shadowy past.

Описание: From science fiction legend and New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster comes the climactic final novel in The Taken trilogy, his electrifying space epic about a man and his dog for whom the expression "out of this world" takes on a whole new meaning. Location is everything. In Chicago, Marcus Walker was a hotshot commodities broker. In the cargo hold of the alien Vilenjji spaceship, he and a laconic dog named George, who has been speech-enhanced to increase his value, are just two more primitive creatures being shipped to the civilized part of the universe, where the market for cuddly extraterrestrial "pets" is busting wide open. Though Walker and George manage to escape, man and dog are far from overjoyed, being even farther from Earth--billions of miles, in fact--and without a clue as to whether the direction home is up, down, or sideways. Possessing universe-level social skills, Walker becomes the leader of his own armada. Yet even a fleet commander is hard pressed to find a piece of space that no one's ever heard of, much less cares to find. To make matters worse, it seems the Vilenjji are proving to be notoriously sore losers. Even if Walker does pull off the impossible and pinpoint his needle of a solar system in the universe haystack, there's a good chance that the unrelenting Vilenjji will get to him before he ever gets to Wrigley Field. Yep, it's a wide-open universe out there, bursting with possibilities--and Walker's going to get hit with all of them.

When a mishap maroons Ghost 1 in the far reaches of unknown space, the ship's distress beacon reaches the very alien race Ghost 1's crew has been seeking: the Autobots. The gigantic mechanized beings are also on a quest: to find the Allspark, a device crucial to the salvation of their home world, Cybertron. But they're not alone. The Decepticons, the Autobots' brutal enemies, have their own sinister purposes in seeking the Allspark. As these adversaries are drawn together once more, the stage is set for a death-dealing new battle in which each is driven by a single-minded aim: total annihilation of the enemy.

Описание: Unlikely duo Pip and Flinx return to right another wrong in this all-new sci-fi adventure from one of the genre's living legends. Fans of fun, fast-paced, imaginative science fiction adventure, rejoice #1 New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster returns to his much-loved Commonwealth series with a new novel starring the indefatigable Flinx and his venomous minidrag, Pip. Facing danger and doing good is their business . . . provided the price is right. The unexpected return of an old friend draws Flinx and Pip to the backward planet of Largess, whose seal-like denizens' primitive technology and fractious clan politics have kept a wary Commonwealth from a profitable trade relationship. But now a rogue human employing forbidden advanced weaponry threatens to ignite a war among the Larians. And Flinx is just the man to stop it before it starts. But once on Largess, Flinx discovers that his empathic abilities--usually his greatest asset--are rendered useless by the natives' unique language, which is sung rather than spoken. Worse, the abduction of a powerful chieftain's daughter has raised tensions to the boiling point. Now Flinx must depend on his own mettle--and of course Pip, the devoted minidrag with the deadly edge--to right wrongs, mend fences, and battle a cold-blooded adversary armed with enough firepower to blow them all away . . . and destroy the chance for peace in Largess forever. Advance praise for Strange Music "Adventure-loving readers new to the series, as well as old fans, will enjoy Alan Dean] Foster's return to Commonwealth space."--Publishers Weekly

But the resort has become a mad dream world where nightmares are hideously real. Mudd's Passion When space scoundrel Harry Mudd is arrested and brought aboard the Enterprise, he subjects the crew to a liquid-crystal love potion--with devastating results.

Escape is impossible--unless sworn enemies Kor, the Klingon leader, and Kirk work together. More Tribbles, More Troubles After saving a Federation scout ship from Klingon attack, Kirk also rescues Cyrano Jones and a pile of tribbles. Jones insists that these tribbles don't multiply--but they do grow bigger, and bigger, and bigger.
