In the first Alex
Delaware novel, Dr. Morton Handler practiced a strange brand of
psychiatry. Among his specialties were fraud, extortion, and sexual

“When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
“And down will come baby, cradle and all.­”

The Galactic Empire is dying. In their high towers, the Grand Senators plot and struggle to grasp a larger share of power while on the streets, the poor struggle to survive just one more day. Chaos and anarchy are running through the megacities of Earth, while giant corporations tighten the screws and colony worlds plot to declare independence and escape the Empire’s increasing demands for resources. Centuries of mismanagement are finally catching up with the human race. The end cannot be long delayed.

Specialist Belinda Lawson, a Marine Pathfinder who survived the fighting on Han, is assigned to serve as a bodyguard to the Childe Roland, the Heir to the Imperial Throne, and attempt to prepare him to be Emperor.

Author:

Millie's is a small family -- just a mother, a father, a small brother, Hamish, and her. Both her parents had been orphaned (and were introduced in Watts' novel Flower), but the family they created was tight-­knit and loving. When Millie's mother announces that she is pregnant, it seems life is perfect. They have each other, and, although the Great Depression has brought hard times to their small town, Millie's father's services as a blacksmith are still in demand. But when her mother dies, suddenly everything changes. Her father retreats into depression and Millie, only thirteen, finds herself responsible for a newborn baby. When a stranger appears and threatens the remnants of the family even further, Millie musters courage she never dreamed she had to rebuild the home that means so much to her.

Irene N. Watts' memorable story is as complex and as comforting as family life itself.
