In the year 2236 a brilliant new supernova lights the night sky. Forty-eight years later a meteor strikes an orbiting CosTek space station... a secret team develops a new hybrid android... and the company's astronomical observers sight a baffling tetrahedron-shaped object approaching Uranus. Synchronicity? Or are more intentional, even sinister, forces at work? Astonishingly, CosTek astronomers trace the origin of the mysterious object Tetra to Situla, the source of the supernova -- and infer that the entity is occupied. But by what -- or whom? An android crew is dispatched to investigate, led by Dr. Benjamin Akers, a top android designer and , by a radical twist of fate, now the world's first hybrid biological android himself. His prophetic adventure leads him inexorably to a Rendezvous with Tetra.

Winner of the 2013 Nebula Award for Best Novel The year is 2312. Scientific advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer our only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system, on moons, planets and in between. But in 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront our past, present and future. The first event takes place on Mercury, in the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. For Swan Er Hong, it will change her life. Once a designer of worlds, now Swan will be led into a plot to destroy them. 2312 is a bold vision of humanity's future and a compelling portrait of those individuals who will shape its events.

Ultraviolet and Visible Absorption Spectra, Index for 1930-1954 is a reference volume listing of ultraviolet and visible absorption spectra in the literature. This book contains about 32,000 references to published absorption spectra in 27 important American and European journals and one book. The index is arranged according to the compounds whose spectra are given. The indexing arrangement is roughly similar to that used in Chemical Abstracts, although it has not been practical to conform to Chemical Abstracts nomenclature throughout. Wherever possible, all references for a particular compound have been listed under a single name, but there will be some instances where listings for the compound may be found under several different names. The rules used by Chemical Abstracts have been followed where practical, but some inconsistencies will be found. Researchers in the fields of organic, inorganic, and analytical chemistry will find this Index a great value.

The year is 2312. Scientific and technological advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer humanity's only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system on moons, planets, and in between. But in this year, 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present, and its future. The first event takes place on Mercury, on the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. It is an unexpected death, but one that might have been foreseen. For Swan Er Hong, it is an event that will change her life. Swan was once a woman who designed worlds. Now she will be led into a plot to destroy them. Review Praise for the Novels of Kim Stanley Robinson*: *"Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game." - Iain M. Banks "If I had to choose one writer whose work will set the standard for science fiction in the future, it would be Kim Stanley Robinson." --- *The New York Times "For power, scope, depth, and detail, no other Martian epic comes close." --- Kirkus on Red Mars* "Robinson's...scientific homework [is] impeccable, and his handling of a large cast is a model to many avowed saga mongers." --- Booklist on *Red Mars "The author succeeds...in his fascinating speculation about our ecological future, and the steps we could be taking to repair the world for future generations. " --- Kirkus on Fifty Degrees Below* "[Robinson] has created a novel of ideas of the best sort, filled to overflowing with philosophy, theology and scientific theory." --- Publishers Weekly on The Years of Rice and Salt Review "Robinson's extraordinary completeness of vision results in a magnificently realized, meticulously detailed future in which social and biological changes keep pace with technological developments." (Publishers Weekly ) "Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game." (Iain M. Banks ) "2312 is a monumental tour-de-force that re-imagines the solar system in ways no one has envisioned before. Whether comparing the compositions of Beethoven to those of skylarks and warblers, or describing a life-threatening sunrise on Mercury, Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets. This is the finest novel yet from the author who gave us the Mars Trilogy and GALILEO'S DREAM. An amazing accomplishment." (Robert Crais ) "Inherently epic stuff... expect interplanetary strife, conspiracies, more big ideas than most SF authors pack into a trilogy... [yet] this is ultimately in so many respects a book about Earth... a wise and wondrous novel" (SFX ) "Beautifully written and with strong mental imagery" (SciFi Now )
