    The Subtle Knife sequel to Northern Lights.

    The Ride of the Valkyries by William T. Maud, 19th c. British artist. One tradition links the Northern Lights with the sunlight glinting on the shields of the Valkyries. They were the servants of Odin who took brave warriors from the battlefield to Valhalla to await the final apocalyptic battle. ©Mona Evans, “Tales of the Northern Lights” www.bellaonline.c...

    The Amber Spyglass

    SOARING. (Credit Ole Salomonsen) Video shot from late August to mid-November 2014 in & around the city of Tromsø & the island of Senja. All sequences are realtime video showing auroras as they are, usually moving slowly & majestically. But a strong display may move fast. Ole says this video has some of the wildest displays he's ever seen over Tromsø. Even realtime video may struggle to keep up. Mona Evans, "Aurorae - Polar Light Shows" www.bellaonline.c...

    One Amazing Thing: “Nine people are trapped in the Indian consulate's visa office after a devastating earthquake. As they start to melt down emotionally, Uma, a grad student, suggests they each tell a story about one thing in their lives. The stories they tell are incredible, and you will feel as though you have known and understand each character as they wait for rescue or death. An amazing read.” -- cinda meister, Booksmart, Morgan Hill, CA
