The Future of Life by Peter Popper
The Universe is alive. It requires living, biological organisms to grow and reproduce itself. Life is evolving, ordered information that resides not only in all organisms but also at the surface of the universe. Humans are advanced forms of living information carriers. If we wish to survive and to contribute to the living universe we must protect and advance life. This could be best achieved by expanding peacefully into our galaxy and beyond, while we learn to better understand and work together with other advanced species on our planet. The Milky Way is our playground.

Just Released : Out of Mirror lake by Betty Cunningham.
In September 1967 two young women, Maggie Blake and Abby Harper, living in different towns close to the Quebec/Vermont border, give birth to baby girls on the same day. One child is the result of rape; the other baby fails to survive the birth. Eighteen years go by, during which time both women move to Montreal and pursue successful careers. Still unknown to one another, they might have remained so, had not a 79-year-old retired colonel, Maggie’s employer, purchased an abandoned cabin in the woods near Mirror Lake in Quebec’s Eastern Townships in August 1984. While clearing out the cabin, he finds a sealed letter postmarked 1976, addressed to “Abby, c/o Honeymoon Cabin, Mirror Lake.” His curiosity piqued by the cryptic address, he amuses himself by tracking down this Abby’s address and forwarding the letter. Its shocking contents reveal a near decades-old conspiracy involving both women, bringing joy to one and despair to the other.
