Sci-Fi Lovers Will Adore This Week's Word

Ansible
Noun [ænsɪb(ə)l]
 


A hypothetical device that enables users to communicate instantaneously across great distances; that is, a faster than light communication device. The connection allows communication to be instantaneous throughout interstellar space (science fiction).

Ansible hasn’t broken out of the specialist science fiction linguistic area in which it was created, though in that field it’s one of the better known terms. It was invented by Ursula K Le Guin. First used in 1966 in Rocannon's World and expanded on in 1974 in The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin; she states that she derived it from answerable. See also The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin (1968).The Ansible has been adopted by Orson Scott Card, first in Ender's Game (1986) and then in successive works in his Ender's Game series.




Keta Diablo's SKY TINTED WATER was recently nominated for a Rone Award. Winners to be announced the end of this month!

About Sky Tinted Water (a sweet western historical)
Malevolent schemes and passion collide in this sweet historical novel. Set in Minnesota during the Civil War and the Sioux uprising, this is the story of Rory Hudson, the exquisite Irish lass with an unbreakable spirit and the enigmatic Dawson Finch, a man bound by honor, duty and loyalty.

When Dawson enlists in the army to bring peace to nation divided, Rory’s world plummets into a tailspin. War, distance and time separate them, but nothing can dispel the haunting memories of their love. Not even death can destroy their fierce passion or a love so strong it beats the odds of the impossible.

Short Excerpt:
The woods loomed ahead. Here the path would narrow and Rory would be surrounded by clusters of dense hardwood and pines. On the other side of the forest, her sister’s belching chimney would come into view and to the east Jab and Louisa Pearson’s homestead, to the west, Hiram’s. She hadn’t thought of him since her wedding day. Neighbors claimed he’d changed; some said he’d run amok after Jane and Levi died. A pang of sadness cloaked her, but the day was far too beautiful to be bogged down with tragic thoughts.

Entering the woods, the familiar call of a whippoorwill competed with the harsh screech of a blue jay. Twisted limbs and branches hugged the man-made trail and thick bracken and underbrush covered the ground around her. Rory stopped Charmer when an eerie stillness descended on the woodland. The chatter of small critters had stopped and the songbirds had ceased their melodic trills. She forced her eyes to scan the trees in all directions, the lump in her throat tightening.

Looking over her shoulder, she blew a sigh of relief. Minx had paused to nibble on a sprig of grass bursting through the forest floor. The foal would act skittish if danger lurked. She relaxed in the saddle and journeyed on . . . until Charmer’s ears flattened against her head. Had the mare heard a foreign noise or were her muscles preparing for an attack from pesky flies?

Rory turned a keen ear to her surroundings and concentrated on a sliver of sunlight ahead. Keep moving toward the light. A scream tore through the still woods, or a war-cry. She’d never heard a native prepare for battle, but had read about their nightmarish shrills. Charmer whinnied and tossed her massive head and a sense of danger spiked Rory’s heartbeat. Clutching the reins, she looked down at her white knuckles and caught a flash of movement on her left. Her blood ran cold when she spied a tall, dark form stalking her with the stealth of a panther. God’s nightgown, is it human or beast?

Saddle Up Sunday Snippet - Stilettos At High Noon

Welcome to Saddle Up Sunday Snippets
sponsored by STILETTOS AT HIGH NOON
 Western Fiction/Western Romance Blog
Today's featured Western is Dark Night of the Moon - Book 2 of Holding On To Heaven 

* Western Wolf-Shifter
* Paranormal
* Native American Mythology


Setup and Excerpt:
Creed finds Lauren in the woods thrown from her horse and almost frozen to death.



Creed dropped to a knee beside her and placed his fingers against her neck. Thank God, a faint pulse. A ribbon of crimson streaked her forehead and ran down her cheek. The blood, thickened by the cold, had ceased running long ago. Creed pulled her to his chest and rubbed her arms, hoping to bring warmth to her cold body.

Her eyes fluttered open and nonsensical words fell from her blue lips. “Come back, Adobe, don’t leave me.”

“Lauren, hush. It’s all right. I’m here now.”

Her eyes tried to focus on his face. “I knew you’d come. Forgive me, please. I never meant to hurt you.”

Good God, who does she think she’s talking to? Brand? Me? “I have to get you home or you’ll freeze to death soon.”

“It’s all right. I deserve to die. He hates me, hates everything I stand for.”

“You’re not making any sense so stop talking, using up valuable energy.”

Creed slung Lauren over his shoulder and walked to the mount. Grabbing hold of the horn, he flung himself into the saddle, dragging her lightweight body with him.

Facing him, her teeth rattling, she snuggled into his chest. “Finn. Don’t let anyone take my son. Promise me you’ll care for him.”


 Reviews:

"You'll discover yourself on an emotional ride, I found myself in tears one minute and the next I just wanted to smack Creed and Lauren. I felt like an observer standing there watching this touching and scorching story unfold. You're never sure how this story will end and you may even be surprised. Keta Diablo is an amazing story teller and Dark Night of the Moon is a keeper." - Rom Fan Reviews

 "All the characters I loved so much are back and just how I remembered them. Though it has been awhile since I read the first book. It didn't take long to step back into their lives again. It was a wild ride to the very end and not once was I bored. In fact I can almost say I loved this book even more than the first. Would I recommend? Yes!! If you have never read Keta's books then what are you waiting for. She spins a beautifully told story, woven with some spice and romance and a whole lot of drama for good measure." Book Lover's Hideaway
