Battle Beyond Earth: Resurrection. The first instalment in an epic new series that tells of humanity's desperate struggle to survive in an uncertain and war-torn future. Four centuries have passed since the end of the alien invasion that almost destroyed humanity. The surviving races, human and alien, now live in peace as allies. But when a terrifying new enemy cuts a path of destruction through the Alliance, there seems little hope of resistance. The situation is desperate, and desperate measures are required. With reluctance, they agree to resurrect a hero from the past, Colonel Mitch Taylor. A mortally wounded man held in suspended animation since the end of the last war. A man who may hold the only key to their survival. Taylor emerges into a world he no longer recognises. A new alien race lives among them, a race he does not trust. Society, the Marine Corps, even the way he speaks, nothing fits this new life. Many in the Alliance refuse to accept him, for Taylor is an icon of a bygone era. Respected by some, hated by many. Isolated, alone, regarded as little more than a relic of a past era, he must accept the horror of knowing his old life is gone. He must also overcome the new enemy that stands before him, an enemy that wants nothing more than to destroy all known life in the universe. Battle Beyond Earth is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure, a standalone story in its own right. Yet it will also give a new perspective and a new storyline to the readers who followed Mitch Taylor's exploits in the epic series 'Battle Earth'.

Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings,is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra. The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

How do you fight a zombie if you are armed with only a shovel and are being pursued down a street? How can you raise a body of like minded individuals to defend your territory or to expand during the Zompoc? What is the Zompoc and what is a zombie? This book was written to answer these questions and much more. Many books recommend particular weapon types but they are always described by those with no experience of these items. As well as providing information we think is important we also offer more specific advice and guidance based upon the many questions we received from the readers of our first book. In Zompoc: How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse (HTSAZA) we covered all the key areas that would be of concern with regards to survival, basic combat and overall strategies for the apocalypse. Some of the most popular parts of the book were the sections on long term survival and on the specifics of weapons and tactics when fighting zombies. It was with these points in mind that we produced this new additional to the Zompoc library.
