Every time we passed a guard in the corridor he would nod at me, and I returned the gesture, knowing at long last what it meant to belong, to be a Soldier of Furnace.     ‘You have seen most of the prison, from one side of the bars or the other.’ The warden spoke over his shou...

It was bucketing down by the time we got there. On the plus side, this meant the streets were all but deserted – no sane person would be out here in this. But the pouring rain also meant that we couldn’t count on Reeve waiting around for long. Assuming he’d come out here in the first place. Assum...

The sky was steel gray and she had a feeling there would be no riding, judging by the pregnant clouds that filled the sky.

Edward sat stiffly against the cloth seat; the noise and bustle of the city shut out. The cab was silent and—oddly—cool. Edward leaned to peer at the traffic going by and didn’t see a single cab that did not have its windows rolled down in an attempt to circulate the hot, heavy ...

5 Goons, Geeks, and Other Life Forms “Hey, look, I’m sorry,” Beamer stammered as two kids carried him by the elbows over to the teen mummy. Kids all around were snickering and giggling.

Her death robbed Harvard University of the finest glaciologist at work in the United States; I lost a close ally and a good friend.
