    Summary

    “We live in a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles?”

    After an academic career at MIT and Oxford, Yuuri Katsuki eschews job offers at places like NASA and CERN to go work at the Very Large Array in what Phichit Chulanont lovingly calls The Actual Middle of Nowhere, New Mexico, monitoring radio frequencies from light-years away. He's loved the stars for as long as he can remember, and the universe feels so big sometimes that Yuuri is sure it would be a cruel mistake for humans to be all alone.

    Enter the latest scientist to join the staff of the VLA, enigmatic Russian genius Victor Nikiforov, around whom Yuuri’s entire universe seems to bend to make room, and the strange, recurring dreams Yuuri keeps having, where something like love carries him across the stars.

    Does love travel faster than light? Do souls?

    “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”

    Summary

    Rafael snaps his eyes back to Sonny and scoffs. Then he looks up at the ceiling and mutters, “Ay, Dios mio, are you quoting Miss Congeniality to me?”

    Sonny shrugs and sips his beer. “Always wanted an excuse to."

    Summary

    Dear Rita,

    You will undoubtedly be interested to know that my perpetually-single and often social recluse son has informed me that he will not only be attending my retirement gala but will be bringing his boyfriend, a charming young man he refers to solely as ‘Sonny’. If you have any clue as to who this Sonny may very well be, please feel free to pass it along to me. You know how Rafael is — he refuses to share even the most basic personal details but is never one to skimp when filling me in on his latest cases.

    Best,
    Lucia Barba
