The impact of these animals was devastating to the native ecosystem. Many plant and bird species were already extinct, others were highly endangered. During his tenure, Ron oversaw the development and implementation of a conservation program that successfully removed these non-native species, setting park lands on the road to recovery. Conserving the Future at Haleakala National Park is a photo essay that tells the story of that effort.
The Bohr Maker
Army veteran True Brighton left the service when the development of robotic helicopters made her training as a pilot obsolete. Now she works at Requisite Operations, a private military company established by friend and former Special Ops soldier Lincoln Han. ReqOp has embraced the new technologies. Robotics, big data, and artificial intelligence are all tools used to augment the skills of veteran warfighters-for-hire. But the tragedy of war is still measured in human casualties, and when True makes a chance discovery during a rescue mission, old wounds are ripped open.

Stories of the Puzzle Lands began with The Dread Hammer and continues with Hepen the Watcher -- a tale of exile, rebellion, fidelity, and fire. The demon Dismay's murderous nature has earned him the ire of his beloved wife, who has sent him away in a fit of temper.
In his exile he ventures south into Lutawa, a land ruled by an immortal king who punishes treason with the terrible weapon of infernal fire. Believing this king to be the same cruel deity known in the north as Hepen the Watcher, Dismay resolves to kill him--and accidentally ensnares two innocent young women, Ui and Eleanor, in his schemes. The nanotechnology novels were originally published from through by Bantam Spectra.
Each novel works as a stand-alone story, but since they share the same story world and sometimes the same characters, they can also be read as a loose series. Tech-Heaven is a near-future prequel. A political thriller that imagines the rise of nanotechnology in our world through the eyes of Katie Kishida, a mother and business woman whose life takes an extraordinary turn when she is widowed, and her husband's body is cryonically frozen against a time when advancing technology will allow his resurrection.

Society has expanded into the great orbital habitats known as the "Celestial Cities" and nanotechnology saturates every aspect of life--but the rules regulating its use are still being written. Advancing technology has allowed human civilization to expand across star systems, establishing settlements divided from one another by vast gulfs of space and time.
But all along the frontier, human settlements are under attack by the ancient and deadly robotic warships of a mysterious alien race known as the Chenzeme. Four people are aboard the great ship, Null Boundary. They are bound for the lightless clouds of dust and gas in the galaxy's Orion Arm, determined to find the source of the alien Chenzeme warships that have ravaged human civilization. Vast is an extraordinary adventure embracing the limitless nature of both space and time.

In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel.

A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question.
So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.
