The classic science fiction novel that changed the way we looked at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man ventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other. This allegory about humanity's exploration of the universe and the universe's reaction to humanity was the basis for director Stanley Kubrick's immortal film, and lives on as a landmark achievement in storytelling. - Back...

"The Jedi have been decimated in the Great Purge, and the Republic has fallen. Now the former Republic Commandos--the galaxy's finest special forces troops, cloned from Jango Fett--find themselves on opposing sides and in very different armor. Some have deserted and fled to Mandalone with the mercenaries, renegade clone troopers, and rogue Jedi who make up Kal Skirata's ragtag resistance to Imperial occupation. Others--including men from Delta and Omega squads--now serve as Imperial...

For her part, Lori couldn't believe the injustice of it all. Falsely accused, apprehended by a hard-hearted marshal and, the most unfair part--how her body rebelled every time Gideon was near, making resistance to her...
