These two renowned writers have invented a world not unlike our own--a world on the edge of chaos, torn between the madness of religious fanaticism and the stubborn denial of scientists. Only a handful of people on the planet Lagash are prepared to face the truth--that their six suns are setting all at once for the first time in 2,000 years, signaling the end of civilization!
Imagine living on a planet with six suns that never experiences Darkness. Imagine never having seen the Stars. Then, one by one your suns start to set, gradually leading you into Darkness for the first time ever. Image the terror of such a Nightfall. Scientists on the planet Kalgash discover that an eclipse - an event that occurs only every 2049 years - is imminent, and that a society unfamiliar with Darkness will be plunged into madness and chaos. They realize that their civilization will end, for the people of Kalgash have a proven fear of Darkness, but they are unable to predict the insanity and destruction that will accompany the awesome splendor of Nightfall. Based on the classic short story by Asimov, "Nightfall" is unabridged Bookcassette Audio at its best - a spellbinding tale of an alien civilization not unlike our own.
A woman in love with convicted murderer Richard Tiernan will do anything to have him--even when she learns the truth about his wife's death and his children's disappearance. Original.
An expanded version of Asimov's short story, "Nightfall," reveals a world on the brink of chaos, torn between religious fanaticism and scientific denial and faced with the end of civilization

From the acclaimed writer of the beloved Clara Callan comes a memorable new novel about first loves, love-after-love, and the end of things, set in summer in Quebec City.James Hillyer, a retired university professor whose life was evocatively described in October (Wright’s novel published in 2008) is now barely existing after the death of his beloved daughter in her forties. On a whim, he tries to locate the woman he fell in love with so many years ago on a summer trip to Quebec and through the magic of the Internet he is able to find her. But Odette’s present existence seems to be haunted by ghosts from her own past, in particular, the tough ex-con Raoul, with his long-standing grievances and the beginnings of dementia. The collision of past and present leads to violence nobody could have predicted and alters the lives of James and Odette forever. Nightfall skillfully captures the way in which our past is ever-present in our minds as we grow older, casting its spell of lost loves and the innocent joys of youth over the realities of aging and death. The novel is skillfully grounded in observation, propelled by unforgettable characters, and filled with wisdom about young love and old love. Drawing on the author’s profound understanding of the intimate bonds of men and women, Nightfall is classic Richard B. Wright.
Suffering from amnesia, Jim Vanning doesn't remember the murder for which he is wanted by the police, or the missing three hundred thousand for which three crooks are prepared to kill him
