On the planet Ilmatar, under a roof of ice a kilometer thick, a team of deep-sea diving scientists investigates the blind alien race that lives below. The Terran explorers have made an uneasy truce with the Sholen, their first extraterrestrial contact: so long as they don't disturb the Ilmataran habitat, they're free to conduct their missions in peace. But when Henri Kerlerec, media personality and reckless adventurer, ends up sliced open by curious Ilmatarans, tensions between Terran and Sholen erupt, leading to a diplomatic disaster that threatens to escalate to war.

Against the backdrop of deep-sea guerrilla conflict, a new age of human exploration begins as alien cultures collide. Both sides seek the aid of the newly enlightened Ilmatarans. But what this struggle means for the natives and the future of human exploration is anything but certain, in "A Darkling Sea "by James Cambias."

Before deciding whether to trade in his green card for U.S. citizenshop, Simon Majumdar knew he needed to find out what is really means to be an American. So he set out on a journey to discover America through the thing he knows best: food. 

 

Over the course of a year, Simon crisscrossed the United Statesm stopiing in locales such as Plymouth, Massachusetts, to learn about what the pilgrims ate; Kansas, for a Shabbat dinner; Wisconsin, to make cheese; Alaska, to fish for salmon alongside, a grizzley bear; and Los Angeles, to cook at a Filipino restaurant in the hope of making his in-laws proud. Along the way he made some friends and dug in to the food cultures that make up America-brewing beer, farming, working at a food bank, and even tailgating.
