Summary: Psychic suspense: “Welcome to Paradise,” archaeologist Susan Dunne hears on arrival at the Caribbean island to research petroglyphs and unravel the mystery of her brother’s drowning there.  But this sunny tourist paradise conceals dangerous secrets – violent native unrest, a sunken treasure guarded by legendary Jumbies, and a bloodthirsty cult. She’s more troubled by her own psychic visions of a shadowy murderer. Susan literally dives into her investigation of the sunken treasure ship where John drowned, and its link to the photo of underwater petroglyphs he’d sent before his death.  To find the truth, she must work with her number one suspect – Vic Manden, the salvage expert who was working the site with John.  Resisting her attraction to the unpredictable combat vet Manden, Susan is soon in over her head in more ways than one. The only way through the murky intrigue is to dive deeper into the tantalizing clues of her visions.

Summary: Jeff Harris goes back in time to prevent the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger, but gets pulled into November 1963, and has 23 years to plan his intervention with the Challenger. He discovers that his actions in the past may result in the Soviet Union continuing in the 21st century. He strives with Laura and Karina to prevent this, and also the murder of John Lennon and the September 11 attacks, but the resilience and interconnections of history make it unlikely that they'll be able to stop all of those calamities, and the personal survival of at least one of them may be incompatible with their goals. The Saga contains "Loose Ends" -- the novella nominated for Hugo, Nebula, and Sturgeon Awards -- and its sequels "Little Differences," "Late Lessons," and "Last Calls".
