  • Book VIII of The Horus Heresy. News of Horus's treachery is in the open and a time of testing has come.

  • Sandra Foster studies fads - from Barbie dolls to the grunge look - how they start and what they mean.

Sandra intercedes with a flock of sheep and an idea for a joint project - after all, what better animal to study both chaos theory and herd mentality? But scientific study is rarely straightforward...
