Yet just when everything is beginning to work out, trouble comes looking for Poke in the guise of good intentions.

Getting them all out alive will take every skill Poke has.

Green Mansions

By W. H. Hudson

New York: Grosset & Dunlap. Hardcover. c. 1931 [No date stated]. Black cloth over boards with art nouveau design to front and spine printed in silver and green with a plant motif. Heavy light green endpapers. Sewn binding. 5.5 inch x 8 inch. Very Good book. Text unmarked. Spine straight, ends bumped and worn. 1/2 inch chip to inside top of rear cover near spine. Sun fading to spine. No jacket. Not from a library. 261 pages. William Henry Hudson was an English author and naturalist, born in Buenos Aires of American parents. He was a sensitive observer of nature, particularly of birds. In his books he describes plants and animals in a highly personal manner with great force and beauty. His best-known work, Green Mansions, is a romance set in the jungle of British Guiana. It tells the story of Abel, a wealthy, young Venezuelan who flees Caracas for political reasons and soon finds himself in the uncharted forests of British Guiana. There Abel meets the mysterious Rima, the Bird Girl. As Abel chases after his secret admirer, she leads him further and further into her invisible trap of love. Then the secret begins to unfold. The language of Green Mansions is exquisite, and the book will be especially intriguing to anyone with an interest in nature, for it is not only a wonderful love story, but also a vivid description of the rain forest and indigenous peoples of the Guianas. The plot and pacing are superb, and Hudson's storytelling is particularly fascinating.

By D. F. Jones

New York: Berkley. Mass Market Paperback. September 1976. Berkley Medallion Edition. Z3229. Second Printing. Very Good. Tanned but unmarked. Creases to spine and hinges. Damp stain to rear corner of spine. 223 pages. Charles Forbin has dedicated the last ten years of his life to the construction of his own supercomputer, Colossus, rejecting romantic and social endeavors in order to create the United States' very first Artificially Intelligent defense system. Colossus is a supercomputer capable of in-taking and analyzing data rapidly, allowing it to make real time decisions about the nation's defense. But Colossus soon exceeds even Forbin's calculated expectations, learning to think independently of the Colossus Programming Office, processing data over one hundred times faster than Forbin and his team had originally anticipated. The President hands off full control of the nation's missiles and other defense protocols to Colossus and makes the announcement to the world that he has ensured peace. However, the USSR quickly announces that it too has a supercomputer, Guardian, with capabilities similar to that of Colossus. Forbin is concerned when Colossus asks to communicate with Guardian. The computer he built shouldn't be able to ask at all . . . .

The Fall of Colossus

By D. F. Jones

New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons. Hardcover. June 1974. Science Fiction Book Club Edition. Red paper over boards. Very Good book in a Good jacket. Interior unmarked. Foxing to endpapers. Tight sewn binding. Spine ends bumped. Jacket shows rubbing, tanning, sunning, foxing with chipping at spine ends. 184 pages. The hugely powerful and pervasive presence of the Colossus supercomputer mechanically runs Earth and its myriad operations. Managed by its creator, Dr. Charles Forbin, it is incapable of lies and void of human emotion. It is not a robot and not human. As part of its brief to enhance the human race, it runs eerie emotion research centers, authorizing acts of savagery to measure resistance and feeling. Art and abstract creation are banned, and surveillance is constant. No one is free. The power of Colossus is spiraling out of control. The Sect worship it as a God, enforcing its word at every opportunity and seeking out traitors. The Fellowship secretly oppose it as a force of evil, and they risk their lives in a concentrated effort to destroy it and escape its domination. Meanwhile, as Forbin becomes increasingly disillusioned with what he has unleashed on the world, his wife, Cleo, becomes distant, with disastrous consequences.
