Save the City (Save the Humans Book 1) by Sean Platt (Sterling & Stone) 4.2 Stars (31 Reviews)    Price verified one minute ago

WHEN ALIENS INVADE, ONLY A CON MAN CAN SAVE THE DAY... Hollis Palmer is not a good man. An unapologetic thief and womanizer, Hollis has no time for anything that won't profit him directly. So while the rest of the world is staring up in shock as aliens race toward Earth, he's busy stealing a case valuable enough that he'll be able to ride out any invasion in style. But ET's arrival proves to be a bigger catastrophe than Hollis - or humanity - expected. Meanwhile, his would-be hostage, Mia Davies, the trophy wife of his criminal boss, is making the aliens look like a walk in the park. As their plans crumble along with the rest of the world, Hollis and Mia find themselves on the run from a motley crew of aliens, criminals, and crackpots. The two of them must figure out a way to work together without killing each other before something really bad happens-like the city gets blown up, for example. The city of Austin is under siege, and only a charming criminal has any hope of saving it. "With this new addition to the Invasion Series, Truant and Platt have proved that once again they can write great stuff! What's up with the cubes and mysterious boulders? And what's up with Hollis and Mia? I have to read the next book!!!" -- D.J. Duran "The one thing I don't like about Johnny Truant and Sean Platt's books is that when a new one is released, I end up staying up all night reading it. So then the next day I'm tired. It's really hard to put their books down." -- DBStevens "I've read many of the offerings by the prolific team of Platt and Truant and always been pleased by the story line and character development. "Save the City" does not disappoint in that regard. It's a fun read and seamlessly connects to the second novel in the series, "Save the Girl." -- BruceinBaghdad "What did I like most? Hollis. No, Mia. No, crazy-as-bat-guano Brendan. I give up. It's an Invasion thing. Until you read the book, you won't understand." -- Bruce Andis "I've read lots of ...

The Wormwood Wind by Raushan Burkitbayeva - Nukenova (Hertfordshire Press) Price verified 32 minutes ago

This candid poetry collection is clearly the literary outpouring of a planetary citizen. A woman equally at home on the Steppes of Central Asia as much as the Capital cities of Europe. To my mind, a far from trivial verity once we recognise the innate femininity of her versification. Similarly to Sappho (5th Century BC), Nukenova allows everyone access into a woman's world, wherein seductive complexities of thought becomes manifest through wit and rhetoric. Admittedly, her images are often sharp-carefully elaborated for their own jovial sake.

THE DAMNED: Horror Classic from one of the most prolific writers of supernatural stories, also known for The Willows, The Wendigo, The Human Chord, ... by Algernon Blackwood (Musaicum Books) Price verified 2 hours ago

This eBook edition of "THE DAMNED" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) was an English short story writer and novelist, one of the most prolific writers of ghost stories in the history of the genre. Blackwood wrote a number of horror stories. His most work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. Excerpt: "Certain things, however, gradually then became apparent, forcing themselves upon me. They came slowly, but overwhelmingly. Not that facts had changed, or natural details altered in the grounds -- this was impossible -- but that I noticed for the first time various aspects I had not noticed before -- trivial enough, yet for me, just then, significant. Some I remembered from previous days; others I saw now as I wandered to and fro, uneasy, uncomfortable, -- almost, it seemed, watched by some one who took note of my impressions. The details were so foolish, the total result so formidable. I was half aware that others tried hard to make me see. It was deliberate. My sister's phrase, 'one layer got at me, another gets at you,' flashed, undesired, upon me."

The Iliad and The Odyssey + Homer and His Age by Homer (e-artnow) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Iliad and The Odyssey + Homer and His Age" contains 2 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Iliad and the Odyssey are two epic poems written by Homer around the 9th century BC. They are two of the oldest recorded written works in history. The Iliad deals with a ten-year war between the Greeks and Trojans, called the Siege of Troy. It centers around Achilles, the great Greek hero who was dipped in the river Styx when he was young and whose only weak spot was his heel. He was killed when Apollo helped one of his enemies shoot an arrow into his heel. The Odyssey is about Odysseus´s voyage from the war back home to Ithaca, which took another 10 years. Homer (around the 9th century BC) is the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Homer and His Age by Andrew Lang was written in 1906. Lang was highly regarded as a Homeric scholar and Homer and His Age is one of the works he contributed to this area of study. Table of contents: Preface; The Homeric Age; Hypotheses as to the Growth of the Epics; Hypotheses of Epic Composition; Loose Feudalism: The Over-Lord in "Iliad," Books I. and II.; Agamemnon in the Later "Iliad"; Archaeology of the "Iliad".

Family and Medical Leave Act by LandMark Publications Price verified 2 hours ago

THIS CASEBOOK contains a selection of U. S. Court of Appeals decisions that analyze, interpret and apply provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act. * * * The FMLA, in relevant part, entitles "an eligible employee... to a total of 12 workweeks of leave during any 12-month period... [b]ecause of a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the functions of the position of such employee." 29 U.S.C. § 2612(a)(1)(D). The leave can be unpaid. Id. § 2612(c). "Upon an employee's return, her employer must reinstate her to the same or an equivalent position, without any loss of accrued seniority." Carrero-Ojeda, 755 F.3d at 718 (citing Colburn v. Parker Hannifin/Nichols Portland Div., 429 F.3d 325, 330 (1st Cir. 2005)); see also 29 U.S.C. § 2614(a)(1). * * * The pertinent regulations place the burden on the employee to notify the employer of the need for such leave. See 29 C.F.R. § 825.303. Where the leave is unforeseeable, "an employee must provide notice to the employer as soon as practicable under the facts and circumstances of the particular case." Id. § 825.303(a). In providing such notice, the employee must supply "sufficient information for an employer to reasonably determine whether the FMLA may apply to the leave request." Id. § 825.303(b). What constitutes "sufficient information" depends on whether the employee has received leave for that FMLA-qualifying reason before. If she has, "the employee must specifically reference either the qualifying reason for leave or the need for FMLA leave." Id. If she has not, "the employee need not expressly assert rights under the FMLA or even mention the FMLA." Id. In either case, however, the employee does not satisfy this burden merely by calling in sick. See id. ("Calling in 'sick' without providing more information will not be considered sufficient notice to trigger an employer's obligations under the Act."). * * * To protect the exercise of the substantive rights described above, the FMLA ...

Once she is rescued, Lydia has no memory of who or why anyone wanted her dead. In the hospital, another attempt is made on her life, but no one believes her. Rather than go home, Lydia voluntarily admits herself into St. Lucious Psychiatric Hospital to be safe and allow herself to uncover what it is she doesn't want to remember. Lydia's desperation is obvious as her life depends on her memory of her past events no matter how unpleasant they may be. Through her therapy sessions, Lydia soon uncovers the mystery of her dysfunctional family in turmoil, where greed replaces the love they once shared. And where murder is the only way out of past misdeeds that were done. This contemporary mystery delves into the family dynamics that causes people to do the unthinkable. As Lydia races to uncover her memory, the truth becomes a terrifying nightmare. A tortuous, engrossed thriller, Into the Darkness will keep readers enthralled through the final, shocking twist of fate. Customer Review: Great book!! Well worth the read. One of my favorite authors!!!!!

Mystic Knowledge of the Ages, The Reawakening: 2020 Edition by M.G. Hawking Price verified 4 hours ago

This anthology takes you on an exploration of the most refined and profound wisdom of the ages, the mystic knowledge to which the Western world has in recent times been reawakening. What exactly is this knowledge? Mystic knowledge falls under the aegis of Aristotle's metaphysics and seeks to reveal the fundamental nature of all reality; it describes what anything must be in order to be at all. It presents a description so integral, so essentially simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether visible or invisible, human or divine, or anything else. Religion has never really done this, even though it vociferously claims to do so. Mystic knowledge embraces three traditionally contrasted, if not completely separable, areas of ability: 1) The experience of unity or oneness with the Ultimate, commonly interpreted as God, Infinite Being, All-That-Is, etc.; 2) The extension of knowing (extrasensory perception, telepathy, precognition); and 3) The extension of doing (psychokinesis, telekinesis). These abilities utilize the primacy and power of consciousness acting beyond the field of human activity as usually recognized in the Western world. "What does mysticism really mean? It means the way to attain true knowledge. It's close to philosophy, except in philosophy you go horizontally, while in mysticism you go vertically." -- Nietzsche Over the centuries the pursuit of true knowledge, and the claim to possess it, has inevitably generated controversy and conflict. In modern times, advanced technologies have radically enlarged our comprehension of the universe as compelling discoveries emerged one after another from breakthroughs in physics. "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we ...

Nightland: Collected Short Stories 2016 by Stephen Donald Huff (Capital Ideations LLC) Price verified 4 hours ago

Nightland resides within an extraordinary region of time and space bound only by limits of sheer imagination. Its ephemeral pinnacles soar near the apex of human aspiration while its abysmal valleys plunge deeply into the darkest landscapes of global apocalypse. It is alternately violently wild and oppressively regimented. Nightland is older than all of recorded human history and it is many things to come. Remember the past with a robust, bloody gaze when you read "Saga of the Never Seen" and "The Templar Chalice". Linger there awhile to ponder a few of our most disturbing ancestors with "Mordrake's Whisper" and "Bloody Cain". Step away from the doldrums of contemporary political correctness to witness the old-fashioned Freak Show of "Nightland, Incorporated" and "Harkonen", and then delve into the depths of human evil in "Ever for Her", "Spook", "Gem's Machine", and "The Chacmool Sacrifice". Finally, allow your imagination to run wild through the hinterlands of Nightland, where "Rats!" and "Skitters" rule and there find your inner freak among the denizens of "Second-Kind" and "Interior Spaces".

The Plant Based Diet Cookbook For beginners: 700+ Healthy, Quick, Easy and Budget Friendly Plant based Recipes for Healthy Cook’s kitchen with ... by Anna R. Adrian 4.5 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Do you know what Plant-Based Diet is? Do you want to know how to cook Plant-Based Diet? While the term "vegan" has become popular over the years, many are left feeling dubious whenever they hear the word. Many associate veganism with past millennial, Generation X health fads. While those fads may have been helpful and health oriented, the rise and fall of diets can be hard to keep up with. Diets and their popularity have come and gone. Trends regarding particular foods have even surfaced -- kale, celery, and avocados may in fact be some of the trendiest foods on the market and in social media. While many don't doubt the health benefits these foods boast, the reputation of these items have been linked to unfavorable, hard to follow, young adult crazes. Many categorize veganism as simply another trend, or an ideal that is unattainable, though most would theoretically support saving animals and saving the planet all while becoming healthier at the same time. With so much information floating around, however, simple theories become clouded by propaganda and business-focused marketing. In the United States, treating chronic diseases illnesses is a one-and-a-half trillion-dollar industry according to the Milkin Study Institute (n.d.). We've all been told to "eat your fruits and vegetables" -- it's a saying that's been around for ages. Well, your grandma and parents had the right idea. Because the vegan diet mainly consists of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, legumes, and nuts, the amount of nutrients your body receives is drastically different than a meat heavy, processed diet. Consuming the right foods alone will ultimately lead to a better lifestyle and produce a desirable body. Even if you don't feel the immediate health effects after an unhealthy meal, there is still reason to eliminate animal products from your diet. According to a study by the Federal Commission for Nutrition (2015), meat is associated with an increased risk of total mortality, which ...

Runes For Beginners: Your Complete Beginner’s Guide to Reading Runes in Magic and Divination by Vivienne Grant 4.6 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Everything You Need to Know to Begin Working With Runes The human language gives us the power to create. It is possible because we can use a different combination of words to express unique meanings or ideas. Today, it is still debated how many words are in the English language, with some sources such as the Oxford English Dictionary assuming that the official number is close to 750,000. Runes are a set of alphabets, just like the alphabets that exist in the languages practiced today. They prominently feature vertical and often slanted lines. This arrangement of lines serve a purpose, and they are: 1.Parchments were an expensive commodity back then, so writing on them was not a viable option. Ink wasn't cheap, and for that reason, using it was uncommon. Therefore, runes were carved into objects and surfaces instead. 2.Since carving was used, using straight lines was much easier than curves. 3.While using straight lines, runes avoided the inclusion of horizontal strokes, as those lines could look like the natural lines of surfaces like wood, thereby removing any trace of the line itself. No one can establish with absolute certainty when the runes originated. One of the most popular theories is that it was developed by the Goths, a race of East-Germanic people. Historians also believe that runes have taken inspiration from the Latin alphabet. While this does not narrow down its time of origin, it gives a rough estimate, placing it in the 1st century BC.

The Lord’s My Shepherd by Christopher Roberts 4.2 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This book will consider the encouragement people can gain from studying Psalm Chapter 23 in depth. In many respects, Psalm 23 is similar to the book 'War and Peace,' written by Leo Tolstoy, in that Christians often face battles of varying kinds before reaching a place of peace. In the first part of this book, therefore, we will consider how we need to follow the leading of the shepherd, through times of refreshing, before entering a valley experience. In this valley, the Lord will teach us how to overcome fear, as well as experiencing his discipline, before facing our enemies - enemies we can overcome in the name of Jesus. In the second part of Psalm 23, we will consider the need for God's anointing on our lives, as well as the goodness and favor that will follow us on our journey with Jesus - along with dwelling in the house of the Lord forever. It is my prayer that this book will bring a fresh revelation from Psalm 23 to you - that it will encourage you during times of difficulty.

The Collected Short Stories of Lewis Carroll: A Tangled Tale + Bruno's Revenge and Other Stories + What the Tortoise Said to Achilles by Lewis Carroll (e-artnow) Price verified 5 hours ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Collected Short Stories of Lewis Carroll" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Table of Contents: A Tangled Tale Bruno's Revenge and Other Stories What the Tortoise Said to Achilles A Tangled Tale is a collection of ten brief humorous stories by Lewis Carroll, published serially between April 1880 and March 1885.The stories, or Knots as Carroll calls them, present mathematical problems. In a later issue, Carroll gives the solution to a Knot and discusses readers' answers. The mathematical interpretations of the Knots are not always straightforward. The ribbing of readers answering wrongly - giving their names - was not always well received. Short story "Bruno's Revenge" was originally published in 1867. Some years later, in 1873 or 1874, Carroll had the idea to use this piece as the core for a longer story. Much of the rest of the novel he compiled from notes of ideas and dialogue which he had collected over the years. What the Tortoise Said to Achilles, written by Lewis Carroll in 1895 for the philosophical journal Mind, is a brief dialogue which problematises the foundations of logic. The title alludes to one of Zeno's paradoxes of motion, in which Achilles could never overtake the tortoise in a race. In Carroll's dialogue, the tortoise challenges Achilles to use the force of logic to make him accept the conclusion of a simple deductive argument. Ultimately, Achilles fails, because the clever tortoise leads him into an infinite regression. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer.

Drone Games by Joel Narlock (Cedar Fort, Inc.) 4.4 Stars (14 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

"What do we gain if an operative manages to break through the defenses in a US airport?" Al-Aran asked. "A few hundred dead and perhaps one aircraft. What if we could clip the wings of seven thousand passenger planes indefinitely? If multiple planes mysteriously exploded in-flight? The Americans will have to close their skies." While millions of Americans go about their daily lives, halfway around the world an al-Qaeda cell hatches a deadly new terror plot. It's unthinkable in its devastation. It's brilliantly easy in its execution. And it's capable of bypassing all the security measures the United States implemented in the decade since 9/11. First, a Delta flight crashes on departure into Lake Michigan. Eight hours later, a United aircraft comes down over western Iowa. For the second time since flying was invented in 1903, the US airline industry is forced to a standstill. The message is clear. Stop flying -- ruin the economy. Keep flying -- more people will die. Now Homeland Security Director of Counter-Intelligence Jack Riley must lead an FBI task force in a frantic search to discover and eliminate the plot before more people are killed or the economy crashes permanently. The clock is ticking...

Law, Technology and Dispute Resolution: The Privatisation of Coercion (Law, Science and Society) by Riikka Koulu (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 hours ago

The use of new information and communication technologies both inside the courts and in private online dispute resolution services is quickly changing everyday conflict management. However, the implications of the increasingly disruptive role of technology in dispute resolution remain largely undiscussed. In this book, assistant professor of law and digitalisation Riikka Koulu examines the multifaceted phenomenon of dispute resolution technology, focusing specifically on private enforcement, which modern technology enables on an unforeseen scale. The increase in private enforcement confounds legal structures and challenges the nation-state's monopoly on violence. And, in this respect, the author argues that the technology-driven privatisation of enforcement - from direct enforcement of e-commerce platforms to self-executing smart contracts in the blockchain - brings the ethics of law's coercive nature out into the open. This development constitutes a new, and dangerous, grey area of conflict management, which calls for transparency and public debate on the ethical implications of dispute resolution technology.

Dolan, a private investigator and former Army Ranger, takes up the case of a missing seventeen-year-old girl in the story of Hell in the Mountains. The missing girl has likely been abducted, but the cops are doing nothing. And the clock is ticking. Dolan soon finds himself racing to the secluded mountains of North Carolina, in search of the girl, and he finds himself increasingly in over his head. The trail is cold. There's a dirty cop involved. And the clues are few and far between. Hang onto your seats if you pick up this book. The pace is searing. (This story was previously published as "Stolen Daughter.") +++++++++++++++++++++++++ PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR: Dear reader, I wanted to address some questions that have arisen about this book, and apologize for any confusion that may have been caused. As stated above, it was originally published as "Stolen Daughter." "Stolen Daughter" basically bombed following its launch, and this was pissing me off to no end. (Partly, because I am quite the obstinate and stubborn man. And partly, because I hate to lose. Maybe it's the Marine in me. ) Regardless, I rewrote a decent amound of "Stolen Daughter" and yanked out probably twenty or thirty pages, as well as changing the title and cover. In short, I've done everything that I can to tighten the plot up even more and make the book as good as I possibly can. To me, "Hell in the Mountains" is a MUCH IMPROVED version of "Stolen Daughter," and since "Stolen Daughter" had sold so few copies, I figure there's not many who will be affected by the situation of this new launch. Again, I apologize for the confusion, and I really appreciate the continued support of so many great readers and fans out there. Sincerely yours, Stan R. Mitchell

The Prayer, a Story of the Risen Christ: Revised 2nd Edition by Craig R. Doney 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON... SHE NEVER COULD HAVE DONE THAT, ANNA ADMITTED TO HERSELF. HER SON HAD BEEN VIOLENTLY TAKEN FROM HER. Shattered by the horrific murders of her parents and only son, she needed answers... she needed peace. Anna couldn't believe that she would never see them again. Her interest in archaeology had always been a personal search for answers. As an archaeologist, Anna would soon be traveling back to New York for the unveiling of her new archaeological find that "would change religion forever." She also couldn't wait to share her discovery with their only grandson in New York. There was so much he needed to know. She had found an ancient document... she had indisputable evidence of Christ's divinity. Anna hoped that her discovery would reawaken in America greater faith in Christ, and open the hearts of her people in accepting their divine Messiah before it was too late. Sensing that the same terrifying darkness of her childhood was again threatening their lives, Anna prayed believing that only one could save them from what was coming. Often feeling so alone, she wished during the dark moments that she could just touch the hand of God. She hadn't known then that her prayer had already been answered. In search for peace, yet feeling like fugitives with a hidden past, Joseph and Anna Zadok had immigrated to Israel. Ever since Joseph was a child he carried with him a soul-sickness because of what he had seen during the war. Although he loved Anna, he didn't understand her. How could she believe in God? How could she believe in Jesus Christ? They could never have imagined how the tragedy of the Israeli flight LY17 would change their lives. Joseph remembered their childhood Christmas together, and pondered the meaning of Easter.

Language of the Gods by B R Taylor 5.0 Stars (17 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Language of the Gods sets out to challenge the way we see the world along with our adopted beliefs and coordinates within world history. It exposes how the potential of a united humanity has been suppressed by various forms of control over thousands of years. This book is a journey of discovery into our true conscious connection to the universe and our relationship between the macrocosm and microcosm. The reader should come away with a fresh empowering view of how planetary cycles and energies along with human consciousness are the drivers behind geopolitical events and the ever changing fortunes of time. The book was the result of years of research into the vast subject of hidden knowledge and tries to show how the control system have used deceit, fear; debt and division to keep themselves firmly at the helm while offering the rest of us an array of sophisticated techniques not only to divide us consciously but also subconsciously, perverting versions of spirituality disguised as monotheistic planet worshipping religions. I also set out to discover a correlation between consciousness, the energetic cycles of the planets and what the ancient Egyptians were trying to tell us. From a deep understanding of natural universal cycles I also wanted to know if it was possible to gain an insight into what cosmic forces will be prominent in our near future and how they will influence the geopolitical landscape.

Kidnapped on Safari: A Thriller by Peter Riva (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (14 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

The third book in the Mbuno & Pero series pulls terror from headlines to create a gripping international thriller for readers of John le Carré, Daniel Silva, and Iris Johansen. Expert safari guide Mbuno and wildlife television producer Pero Baltazar are filming on Lake Rudolf in Northern Kenya, East Africa, when they receive news that Mbuno's son, himself an expert guide, has been kidnapped while on a safari five hundred miles away in Tanzania. After gathering the clues and resources needed to trek through the wilderness, they trace the kidnappers back to an illegal logging operation clear-cutting national park forests, manned by sinister Boko Haram mercenaries. There, they find not only Mbuno's son but also a shocking revelation that has terrifying and far-reaching consequences. Relying on Mbuno's legendary bush skills, the pair must overcome the danger both from inside and outside the camp to bring Mbuno's son out alive. In doing so, Mbuno and Pero discover that kidnapping and deforestation are only the beginning of the terrorist group's aspirations, and they realize a threat that would herald an even more dangerous outcome for Tanzania -- a coup. A rescue might just risk the entire stability of the region. Exciting and expertly plotted using facts ripped from news' headlines, Kidnapped on Safari is a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller set in deepest, darkest, Machiavellian, East Africa.

The Narita Payload: Apocalypse denied by Mike Albanese (Candice Mirabella) 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Harry walked out of the National Institutes of Health building in Bethesda Maryland for the last time Friday. Tucked into the hollow battery case of Harry's laptop were three vials of cold war weaponized small pox spores. The small pox countermeasures program was mothballed in 2002. Over time institutional memories fade, everyone involved in the pox-unit except Harry Bergen had moved on, retired or was dead. The next day Harry drove his leased Bentley to an abandoned outlet mall in Laurel Maryland. A gray primer splotched Honda Accord arrived a few minutes later. Inside was a man. Harry got into the Accord and swapped his three glass vials for a quarter of a million dollars. Three days later Harry's body was found face down in a ditch on a frontage road near Interstate 270 with three bullets in his skull. As investigators unwound the story, Harry's theft of the last known weaponized small pox strain in the world was discovered. It was then Connor was called in to clean up the mess.
