    Summary

    It had given her such a turn, the night before, when Charles Wallace's unusual guest had talked of the tesseract. Would all the wonders of the universe turn out to be horrors? Nevertheless, she turned from her abandoned hopeless writing back to the electron microscope, deliberately shaking off her brooding reverie to watch the unfolding patterns of the little lives of the sub-microscopic world a while longer.

    Summary

    “Did you break up with Adam?” She asked immediately.

    “No,” I replied, wincing at the tone of my voice that sounded unnecessarily defensive. To be fair, it was maybe sort of a lie.

    “You’re too clingy, Vicky. Guys don’t like that.”

    Dating advice from my 17 year old little sister, just what I always wanted.

    Summary

    It's 2004. The alien race from Vega makes contact again, and this time they want to visit, and to help the Earth fight the colonization of the virus-born aliens. But what is their true intention? What is the Divine or Demonic nature of the Spaceship that everybody wants, and to whom does it rightfully belong? Is the Earth just a chessboard, or does Humanity have a greater role to play? Starring a cast of characters from the X-Files, Carl Sagan's "Contact", and the "Wrinkle in Time" universe created by the incomparable Madeleine L'Engle.

    Summary

    Or: archaic understanding isn't legally binding.

    Vicky works her way through the graduate program at Columbia's School of Journalism. Adam mooches off her housing for a semester and change while he writes up his dissertation and... gets into trouble on the side. To be alive is to be vulnerable (to the odd abduction scenario).

    Summary

    “Not much use, is it? I mean, what kind of a lighthouse doesn’t have somewhere to leap dramatically off of and end it all?”

    The young woman – probably, Zachary thought, about his own age – looked at him sharply. “That wasn’t—“

    He wagged a finger at her. “It isn’t now, maybe. But you were thinking about it before you got here. I’ve been there.”

    Summary

    In which the Murrys live in Lyra's world, and the Young Wizards crew in Will's and there are echtroi and spectres and angels and powers.

    The title is taken from Sara William's poem "From the Old Astronomer (To His Pupil)".

    This story takes place after the events of all the current Young Wizards books, and is NME compliant, although timelines are weird. It takes place after the events of His Dark Materials. It takes place after A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door, and in the summer directly before Many Waters.
