    Summary

    Only a very few people in the world know that the celebrated and reclusive poet Jack Allen is just Kansas mechanic Dean Winchester, a high school dropout with a few bucks to his name. Not that it matters anymore; life has left him so wrung out he never wants to pick up another pen.

    Until, that is, a string of coincidences leads Dean to auditing a poetry course with one Dr. Castiel Novak. The professor is wildly intelligent, devastatingly handsome...and just so happens to be academia's foremost expert on the poetry of Jack Allen.

    Summary

    "Well, you should know, your daughter's journals have been published. Edited for publication, of course; but it's been on the bestseller list for a long time. The originals would be worth a fortune... And it's not from her." The kid offered. "It's actually from her late best friend, Ellie Marx. She left these volumes to you in her will, left with specific instructions that it be delivered to you on the recovery of the Endurance." The Administrator grinned. "They expected to hold it in a safe deposit box forever."

    Summary

    It was impossible to comprehend, even for her mind. Humanity being gone was an abstract number about something happening in another galaxy. Cooper being gone she could picture just fine. She was the last human in the universe. Fighting isolation with all the equipment she needed to restart humanity.

    Then she wasn't alone any more.

    Summary

    “Oh, hey, Jack!” Bitty’s sitting on the couch, carefully protected from the stained upholstery by a meticulously arranged pink-and-white quilt. “Ransom and Holster are teaching me about the history of the NHL.”

    “He didn’t know what a Gordie Howe hat trick was.” Holster spreads his hands. “How this kid made an NCAA team...”

    “By playing hockey,” Bitty grumps cheerfully.

    Ransom shakes his head in despair. “We had to educate him right from the top.”

    “So.” Jack folds his arms. “Instead of working on skills that might actually make you useful to our team right now, you’re dwelling on irrelevant things that happened a century ago..."

    Bitty’s happy eyebrows start to wilt.

    “...and you didn’t invite the history major?”
