Book Summary:

'A glorious green adventure story.' Ann Treneman, The Times 'Books of the Year' 'The most enthralling historical book I’ve read this year.' Claire Tomalin, New Statesman 'Books of the year' Daringly innovative when it opened in 1848, the Palm House in Kew Gardens remains one of the most beautiful glass buildings in the world today. Seemingly weightless, vast and yet light, the Palm House floats free from architectural convention, at once monumental and ethereal. From a distance, the crowns of the palms within are silhouetted in the central dome; close to, banana leaves thrust themselves against the glass. To enter it is to enter a tropical fantasy. The body is assaulted by heat, light and the smell of damp vegetation. In Palace of Palms, Kate Teltscher tells the extraordinary story of its creation and of the Victorians’ obsession with the palms that filled it. It is a story of breathtaking ambition, of scientific discovery and, crucially, of the remarkable men whose vision it was. The Palm House was commissioned by the charismatic first Director of Kew, Sir William Hooker, designed by the audacious Irish engineer, Richard Turner, and managed by Kew’s forthright curator, John Smith, who battled with boilers and floods to ensure the survival of the rare and wondrous plants it housed.

Book Summary:

At the beginning of the 26th century, newly deep space faring Humans had become aware Earth had for ever since been protected by Galactic Council superpowers, first and foremost protected from MintAlSai Syndicate, an alliance of brigands and pirates operating from hideouts within the Mintaka-Alnitak-Saiph triangle. Soon, the Galactic Council was confronted with evolving United Earth Space Fleet's ambitions to stand Earth's ground on its own and join the fight against MintAlSai as an equal partner. After plenty of negotiations, even Queen Shayala of Rigel, once the Galactic Council's most vocal opposer of UESF's military ambitions, could be swayed to give the Humans the benefit of a doubt and in 2516 agreed to a mutual officer exchange between the mighty, battle-hardened Rigelian Fleet and UESF, which by the timescale of the legendarily long-lived Rigelians had since only a blink ago been undertaking metrical deep space travel. By fall of 2521, three UESF exchange officers had arrived on Rigelion Prime, arrived there to find themselves not only right at the epicenter of deep space military conflict, interstellar politics and intrigues, but also to find themselves in a society of promiscuous and sexually libertarian alien telepaths and right in the middle of alienating customs.
