The color of nature by Pat Murphy( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and Japanese and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the colorful secrets of the enigmatic Aurora Borealis or the ethereal shimmer of a floating soap bubble? The Color of Nature - from San Francisco's acclaimed hands-on science museum, the Exploratorium - tackles the conundrum of color. An engaging text by Pat Murphy and extraordinary photographs by William Neill and other acclaimed nature photographers clearly illustrate how colors gracefully illuminate our world. We may be accustomed to thinking of color as nature's home-decorating technique, but the colors we see - in the yellow petals of a daffodil and the blue flicker of a flame - exist as essential tools of nature and are the result of fascinating physical phenomena. Occasionally, after a storm when the corner of our eye captures the elusive rainbow and the leaves of a tree take on a glowing green hue, we stop and wonder at these pure, visual pleasures

The city, not long after by Pat Murphy( )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The city is San Francisco. The not long after refers to a devastating worldwide plague that has wiped out most of the planet's population. The people who survive in San Francisco are mostly artists, hippies, and misfits who pull together a viable community and transform the city. For instance, they paint the Golden Gate Bridge blue. But when a military general determines to reunite the remnants of the once great United States and sets his sights on San Francisco, the people resist--figuring they have already discovered a better way of life--and stage an artistically creative kind of guerrilla warfare by using such weapons as tranquilizers and water balloons full of jasmine perfume and LSD. In all, it becomes one of the oddest battles ever fought

Winner of the Philip K. Dick Award: Nineteen stories of power and humanity from a science fiction master with otherworldly talent In a small house in the desert, a chimp named Rachel watches Tarzan on TV. Although her body is an ape & rsquo;s, her mind is something different & mdash;a hybrid between those of a chimpanzee and a young girl. When his wife and child died, the doctor who created Rachel implanted his daughter & rsquo;s brain into that of the chimp. Rachel remembers the jungle; she remembers high school. And when her father passes away, she will embark on the adventure of a lifetime. The Nebula Award & ndash;winning novella & ldquo;Rachel in Love & rdquo; anchors this haunting collection of stories from Pat Murphy, whose electric imagination is a testament to how wonderful science fiction can be. Her characters struggle with alien lovers, vegetative wives, and the burden of seeing into the future. And always, like Rachel, they search for something more: not just what it means to be human, but what it is to be alive
Women up to no good : a collection of short stories by Pat Murphy( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do women want? Well, if Pat Murphy is to be trusted (and we're not saying she is), women are looking for trouble. And in this collection of powerful stories, they find it -- at an archeological dig in the Southwest, in the urban alleys, in California suburbs, in the old West, in ironic fantasy settings. Over the past 25 years, Pat Murphy has been writing stories that garner critical attention and win awards. Her work is difficult to categorize, living on the boundaries between genres. But her characters are easy to recognize. They are troublemakers, every last one of them
