"From fantastic legends and science fictional futures come compelling tales of powerful women-or those who discover strength they did not know they possessed--who fight because they must, for what they believe in, for those they love, to simply survive, or who glory in battle itself. Fierce or fearful, they are courageous and honorable--occasionally unscrupulous and tainted--but all warriors worthy of the name. Join bestselling authors Elizabeth Bear, Nancy Kress, George R. R. Martin, Elizabeth Moon and many others as they celebrate the strong female protagonist in what Publishers Weekly calls an 'epic anthology.'" --

Masters of science fiction : James Patrick Kelly by James P Kelly( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What you’re holding in your hands is part of a science fiction revolution. James Patrick Kelly is much more than an award-winning author. He’s an SF visionary. His writing has redefined the cyberpunk genre, with a uniquely edgy, outré style. This book is a literal treasure trove of Kelly’s most memorable stories and novellas. Here you’ll see classic science fiction blended with New Age technology — and an unparalleled understanding of human psychology. “Think Like a Dinosaur” takes us on a troubling, sometimes terrifying interstellar journey, as we track a young woman’s transformation into an alien life-form, with some unexpected results. “The Last Judgment” is a startlingly original meld of noir and cyberpunk, as a tough private eye gets embroiled in a world dominated by a race of robots. Kelly also adds some murderous extra-terrestrials to the mix. In “Ten To The Sixteenth To One,” it’s 1962, and a young science fiction fan is shoring up his mundane world with comic books and pulp magazines — until he’s visited by a creature that will alter the fate of the human race. “Daemon” is a piece of first-person fiction, in which Kelly himself is the lead character, attending a book signing and confronted by a fan from Hell. In “Going Deep,” Kelly explores teen-age rebellion in outer space, with a compelling, complex, and cloned heroine whose talent for mind-melds makes texting look antiquated. “Mr. Boy” is Peter Cage, who’s been surgically altered to remain forever young. Ever wish you were twelve years old again? Eternal youth isn’t all it’s cracked up to be..."--Dust jacket flaps

The prediction of personal adjustment. A survey of logical problems and research techniques, with illustrative application to problems of vocational selection, school success, marriage, and crime by Social Science Research Council (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 1941 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph represents a survey of the logical problems involved in the prediction of human adjustment, with a critical consideration of basic research techniques, new and old, and with illustrative applications to the problems of vocational selection, school success, marriage, and crime. Three considerations converged to make this task seem especially timely. First, a considerable stream of new quantitative theory, as illustrated by factor analysis in psychology, has recently opened new vistas of possibilities for the improvement of instruments of measurement and the discovery of factors important in the prediction of human adjustment. Some of this new mathematical work, seemingly remote from problems of prediction, turns out to have implications which will freshen the whole approach to the prediction problem. Second, new inventions in mechanical tabulation now make possible economical statistical operations which would have been prohibitively costly a decade ago. The influence on psychology and the social sciences of new devices in mechanical tabulation parallels the influence of new mathematical techniques. Third, recent efforts to make more explicit the operations which actually go on in "intuitively sizing up people" in informal interviews and, in general, in the case study methods of research have demonstrated the urgent need of linking more closely quantitative and nonquantitative methods for improving the value and accuracy of predictions. A timely aspect of this study grows out of the need of the national defense program for a rigorous reexamination of fundamental prediction problems in the vocational field by experts freed from immediate administrative responsibilities who could bring their experience to a focus in an atmosphere of relative detachment. The monograph is in two parts. Part I is devoted to a systematic discussion and analysis of the prediction problem. It also contains, at the end, a memorandum on Prediction and National Defense. Part II comprises a number of supplementary studies, several of which make new contributions of theory and technique. While the presentation of a comprehensive bibliography, which would run into thousands of titles, was beyond the scope of the monograph, an intensive study of a considerable body of the literature was made and a special search was made for concrete illustrations of certain of the more crucial methodological points"--Foreword.
