"From an award-winning poet comes this riveting, gorgeous memoir about a young runaway, the trauma that haunted her as an adult, and the friendship with a horse that finally set her free. When she was eleven years old, Rita began to run away. Her father's violence and her mother's hostility drove her out of the house and into the streets in search of a better life. This soon led her into a dangerous world of drugs, predatory older men, and the occasional kindness of strangers, but despite the dangers, Rita kept running. One day she came upon a field of horses galloping along a roadside fence, and the sight of them gave her hope. The memory of their hoofbeats stayed with her. Rita survives her harrowing childhood to become a prize-winning writer and the wife of a promising surgeon. But when she is suddenly besieged by terrifying panic attacks, her past trauma threatens her hard-won happiness and the stable, comfortable life she's built with her husband. Within weeks, she is incapacitated with fear--literally afraid of her own shadow. Realizing that she is facing a life of psychological imprisonment, Rita undertakes a journey to find help through a variety of treatments. It is ultimately through chasing her childhood passion for horses that she meets a spirited, endearing horse named Claret--with his own troubled history--and together they surmount daunting odds as they move toward fear and learn to trust, and ultimately save, each other"--

Friday the thirteenth was totally normal. By 'normal', I mean that my good-for-nothing brother was absolutely not turned into a zebra while I was being suffocated by a million frogs. There were no levitation pills, time-freezing guns or robot octopuses, and I certainly didn't turn my classmate into a human tornado that destroyed most of the town. That would be preposterous. No, it was just another 'normal' day with my best friend Nate – who just happens to be a genius.

Genre: Fiction

Captain Pearce never intended to be a teacher, but the only way she could escape her early retirement on Earth and get back out into the vacuum was to share the human side of the great Terraforming Project to young political appointees hoping to become Fleet cadets. Hiding her old secrets had given her a unique view of the past failures and the ongoing dream that powered the greatest macro-engineering task of all—remaking the Solar System into new habitable planets for mankind. Stationed on Ceres, formerly an asteroid, now the second largest moon of Earth and headquarters of the Project, also gave her the opportunity to pull off a little project of her own—if she could play the game before they found her out. Henry Melton has been writing Project stories for magazines and anthologies for decades and here in one volume are collected old favorites and several new, previously unpublished works spanning from the beginnings of the Fleet as a simple space transport organization through its expansion to become the mover of planets and changer of worlds.
