Abstract
Charon is dead, and though General Wharington's team has deleted all the electronic copies of him, one problem remains: Alpha. Indistinguishable from a woman, Alpha has superhuman capabilities and Wharington's superiors want her dismantled and studied but he believes her behavior is becoming more human. Is she developing emotions, or just learning to counterfeit them?

Zero (The number)--History.
Abstract
The invention of numerals is perhaps the greatest abstraction the human mind has ever created. Virtually everything in our lives is digital, numerical, or quantified. The story of how and where we got these numerals has for thousands of years been shrouded in mystery. Finding Zero is an adventure-filled saga of Amir Aczel's lifelong obsession: to find the original sources of our numerals. Aczel has doggedly crisscrossed the ancient world, scouring dusty texts, cross examining so-called scholars who offered wildly differing facts, and ultimately penetrating deep into a Cambodian jungle to find a definitive proof. While on this odyssey, Aczel meets a host of fascinating characters: academics in search of truth, jungle trekkers looking for adventure, surprisingly honest politicians, shameless smugglers, and treacherous archaeological thieves--who finally reveal where our numbers come from. Here, he takes the reader along for the ride
