Fighting Bob
by Bob Stockton Rating: 0.0

Many have written novels about the lives and adventure of their ancestors but most are not retold directly by the ancestor himself. In the new novel Fighting Bob author Bob Stockton writes of the exciting life of his great-great-great grandfather, Commodore Robert F. Stockton.

Once described by western frontiersman Kit Carson as “the bravest of the brave,”
The Commodore’s achievements in the first half of the nineteenth century have, in his own opinion, been misinterpreted by history and his true story needs to be retold by someone with a sense of a life at sea. Under a bizarre set of circumstances the Commodore visits his descendant author and tasks him with writing the corrected history of ‘Fighting Bob’s’ many accomplishments.

“I have chosen you for this mission……”

Those words, spoken by the Commodore to his convalescing descendant begin an accounting of epic battles, duels, hand to hand fighting and military conquest covering the first half of the nineteenth century which redrew the map the map of the United States. As the Commodore’s tale unfolds the author, who was at first reluctant to embrace the task, becomes increasingly excited with the prospect of retelling the Commodore’s story in his - the Commodore’s - own words.

LIVE FREE OR DIE FIGHTING- Survival in the North Country
LIVE FREE OR DIE FIGHTING- Survival in the North Country
by Ralph Gregorio Rating: 0.0

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, mankind had made great strides in ensuring the comfort and ease of living for his fellow man. The invention of the airplane and the ability to travel across the globe in hours, the invention of the automobile, giving man mobility that was unheard of in past times. The harnessing of electrical power, giving light at the flick of a switch and of course, the computer, making mundane work tasks as simple as pressing a few buttons.

Now at the beginning of the twenty-first century, all of those advances are being taken for granted. No one even thinks about waking up in the morning, turning on a bathroom light, taking a hot shower indoors, brewing up the morning coffee and then getting into his automobile and commuting twenty or thirty miles to work. Once at work, he turns on his computer, surfs the net and gets the latest stock quotes, baseball scores or checking his emails. In some cases, he may even actually use the computer for work related activities. All of this is done without a second thought. Sure there have been storms where the power had gone out for a few minutes or even a few hours, those were taken in stride as minor inconveniences. Whenever there was a major storm, some people even lost power for a few weeks but they always knew the power would be back on and the government would set up shelters for those not prepared for this type of incident. Many others have at one time experienced a breakdown with his automobile. A headache for sure but that person usually just took out his cell phone and called for a tow truck or family member to come to his aid. People who traveled a lot often had flight cancellations. A great inconvenience for some but everyone knew that within hours, there would be another flight and they would get to their destination.

No one in their right mind could ever fathom that the lights wouldn’t turn on, the computers would not work, the cars wouldn’t move and no airplanes would be flying. People thought that would be like going back to the middle ages, when in actuality, it wasn’t all that long ago. Modern people just can not cope with living without all of these modern appliances. It was their God given right to be comfortable without a thought of how it all comes about.

That is exactly what happened one hot summer morning. People were busy doing their normal everyday tasks of getting ready for work or commuting to their jobs or to go shopping. Others turned on the television to watch the news, while some were lying on an operating table, being worked on by skilled surgeons. Many were over the oceans or on a cross country flight when the unthinkable happened. The power went out. Not just the electricity to turn on the lights but all electrical power to include the computers that actually operated the cars, the planes, the trains and medical equipment. Soon, in a matter of minutes, people would be thrown back to the nineteenth century. Many of those people would die when the planes went down or in a hospital that lost its ability to perform routine operations. For many it was a major inconvenience, for a few, it meant the end of life.

This is a tale of one man's efforts to deal with not only a massive EMP but also a rogue government and UN troops.

UNLEASHED
UNLEASHED
by Christina Hamlett Rating: 0.0

Since the 16th century, the Russians have had a secret weapon, an elite military brigade which strikes terror in the hearts of its enemies each time the moon is full. As the modern war in the Middle East continues to draw world criticism, American intelligence officer Lucy MacDonald and her aide, Captain David Armstrong, are sent to Moscow to engage Soviet assistance in wresting nuclear weapons from Islamic fundamentalists.

Lucy's forbidden attraction to Dmitri Volkov, charismatic leader of the Tsar's brigade, challenges her modern sensibilities against a backdrop of double-dealing terrorists, chauvinistic superiors, and a media that's literally out for blood. Compounding the unexplained presence of supernatural forces interfering with Allied maneuvers at the Pakistan borders is the legend that the brigade answers only to the man they recognize as their Tsar.

Lucy's endeavors to uncover the truth regarding the 1918 survival - and subsequent birth - of an unacknowledged Romanov heir put her in jeopardy at the hands of the brooding officer with whom she feels an inexplicable bond.

DSNG CHRONICLES 1 (THE PRINCE'S PRIDE)
DSNG CHRONICLES 1 (THE PRINCE'S PRIDE)
by Chidi Okonkwo Rating: 0.0

Within the vibrant Beta sector at the heart of the Makuran Galaxy lies planet Avera; a monarchy led neo-roman society of humanoids that is close to the outstanding pinnacle of ultra-modernization. The tangible products of nanotechnology tied to applied quantum physics and radical biomedical advancements have produced a world that constantly adapts to the needs of its sentient inhabitants.
Like his cousin the King, the protagonist Prince Azzar Omenus is also a superhuman being and he holds the rank of Senior Commanding Officer within the Centura, the notarized military force of planet Avera. Gravity defiance, energy shield generation, and the projection of a variety of blazing fireballs from his epidermal layers are amongst the amazing feats that he can flawlessly accomplish, per his uniquely inherited genetics. He is a strong-willed mortal man of few words, and he possesses an immense ego, tied to his distinguished pedigree and his phenomenal abilities. He is not without flaws, but he is definitely without fear. And he is always more than ready to rise to a challenge.
Often silently viewed as eccentric and defiant, Azzar constantly strives to balance his formal responsibilities and intimate relationships, while he battles the condescending voices in his head that belittle his existence. But as a trained Alpha Senturi Black-Ops operative, he knows how to filter his thoughts and focus on the eye of the storm—and this process keeps him ready to resiliently combat the unknown.
While the unified nation of Avera rejoices after the recent victory in the conflict tagged as the War of Marvus, a dark cloud looms over the horizon. The infamous interplanetary terrorist faction known as the Gorilla Rebel Militia have set a diabolical scheme in motion, which commences off world upon one of the satellites of planet Macur, located in the Gamma sector. A bloody covert attack upon a Starline cruiser by a masked, 7-foot tall, eldritch, Scalatan male triggers a stark chain of events, as a man linked to the Averan Ministries Executive Board is viciously apprehended.
That clandestine event marks the birth of Operation Black Rain, a diabolical scheme to eclipse the seven major planets of the Makuran Galaxy in an explosive welter of endless violence and chaos. And the Overlord, the secretive supreme leader of the Gorillas, has sworn to rain down death upon all who dare to oppose his sadistic will. The Overlord has militant cells on every planet of the Makuran Galaxy, and he supplies them with the intel and armaments to execute his vehement objectives. He is far more ruthless than a space pirate commanding a near-infinite bloodthirsty horde. And his influence is as limitless as the bands of cyberspace. He is a man that many believe to be a fable, while others have tagged him as a reactive conglomerate of evolving heuristic algorithms birthed from a sentient mind that went mad eons ago, before fusing with a gullible life-form that served as his submissive host. But regardless of the mysterious web of lies that engulf his near-intangible persona, even the Centura are aware of the Overlord’s dark existence.

More destructive events soon unfold on a festive night within the capital mega state of Avera, when Prince Azzar’s best friend, Commander Vince, is almost assassinated by a peculiar stealth hunter. And in response to the attack, the brave hearted Prince abandons his beautiful date and rockets like a missile into the night in order to confront the mysterious invader. Yet Azzar has no idea of what truly awaits him, and neither is he aware of the price that many will pay in the days to come on account of his pride…
