Book excerpt: The Arthur C. Clarke award-winning author of Children of Time brings us an extraordinary space opera about humanity on the brink of extinction, and how one man's discovery will save or destroy us all. The war is over. Its heroes forgotten. Until one chance discovery . . . Idris has neither aged nor slept since they remade him in the war. And one of humanity's heroes now scrapes by on a freelance salvage vessel, to avoid the attention of greater powers. After earth was destroyed, mankind created a fighting elite to save their species, enhanced humans such as Idris. In the silence of space they could communicate, mind-to-mind, with the enemy. Then their alien aggressors, the Architects, simply disappeared—and Idris and his kind became obsolete. Now, fifty years later, Idris and his crew have discovered something strange abandoned in space. It's clearly the work of the Architects—but are they returning? And if so, why? Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew race across the galaxy hunting for answers. For they now possess something of incalculable value, that many would kill to obtain.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Humanity clings to life on a dying Earth in an epic, far-future science fiction novel from an award-winning author. The sun is bloated, diseased, dying perhaps. Beneath its baneful light, Shadrapar, last of all cities, harbours fewer than 100,000 human souls. Built on the ruins of countless civilisations, Shadrapar is a museum, a midden, an asylum, a prison on a world that is ever more alien to humanity. Bearing witness to the desperate struggle for existence between life old and new is Stefan Advani: rebel, outlaw, prisoner, survivor. This is his testament, an account of the journey that took him into the blazing desolation of the western deserts; that transported him east down the river and imprisoned him in the verdant hell of the jungle's darkest heart; that led him deep into the labyrinths and caverns of the underworld. He will meet with monsters, madman, mutants. The question is, which one of them will inherit this Earth?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For the first time, enjoy all five books of The Shards of Excalibur series in one omnibus volume! Ariane Forsythe and Wally Knight are just two ordinary Canadian teenagers until the morning they encounter the Lady of the Lake in the unlikely waters of Wascana Lake in Regina, Saskatchewan. Ariane learns she's heir to the power of the Lady, and she and Wally, who turns out to have his own unsuspected connection to the legends of King Arthur, are given the difficult task of finding the five scattered shards of Arthur's sword Excalibur before Merlin can, in his modern-day guise as wealthy and powerful computer magnate Rex Major. If Merlin gets the sword, he will use its power to take over the world and then launch an attack into his homeland of Faerie, no matter what the cost. Ariane's and Wally's quest takes them all over the world (courtesy of the power Ariane has inherited that allows them to travel through water and the clouds), from Saskatchewan to the Northwest Territories to southern France; to New Zealand and the Caribbean; to British Columbia and Scotland, always struggling--and sometimes failing--to stay one step ahead of Rex Major. Along the way, they face betrayal and treachery, difficult choices, and unexpected discoveries. And when the quest is finally achieved and the sword reforged, what happens next is nothing at all like either Wally or Ariane imagined, and threatens everything they've sought to achieve--and everyone they love. Includes Song of the Sword, Twist of the Blade, Lake in the Clouds, Cave Beneath the Sea, and Door Into Faerie.

Book excerpt: The Secret Bunker Trilogy Box Set [Enclosed in this box set: Darkness Falls, The Four Quadrants and Regeneration] The Secret Bunker Trilogy 1: Darkness Falls A secret bunker. A sinister darkness. Can Dan Tracy put the pieces together before the whole world is lost? On a family trip to a disused Cold War bunker, Dan Tracy's family gets caught up in life­ threatening events which have cast a sudden and terrible darkness over the surface of the planet. All known life has been put to sleep, causing havoc throughout the world as planes drop from the skies, vehicles career off the road and governments seem powerless to intervene. 24 hours after the darkness descends, the bunker undergoes a massive transformation and it emerges that the dusty old tunnels form a state-­of­-the-­art operations centre which has been hiding in open view for many decades - but its present­day purpose is unclear. Dan soon realises that he and his family are part of something bigger than they could ever have imagined and the world is in perilous danger from a malevolent organisation based on earth and intent on destroying the planet. If you like fast-paced apocalyptic action, captivating characters, and stories that keep you reading all night long, then you’ll love Paul Teague’s Secret Bunker Trilogy. The Secret Bunker Trilogy 2: The Four Quadrants A sleeping planet. A sinister enemy. A hate that could destroy everything … The entire planet is paralysed by a deadly shroud of darkness. Only those trapped in the secret bunker can save it. But they are not alone. A hidden enemy is battling for control of the Earth, and he's ready to sell it to the highest bidder. He harbours a deep grudge against the government leaders who cast him aside with barely a second thought. Now it's time for revenge ... and the whole world is going to pay. As Dan Tracy continues his terrifying journey through the deep tunnels of the secret bunker, he gets help from an unexpected source. Only they were supposed to be dead ... The Secret Bunker Trilogy 3: Regeneration A ravaged planet. A formidable enemy. And now something deadly is lurking in space … The Earth is burning, the result of vicious sabotage on the terraforming programme that was meant to save it ... Two hundred nuclear weapons have been launched at key targets across the planet ... An alien species is gathering warships while the world sleeps, unable to defend itself ... A ruthless cybernetic army is about to erase all traces of life in the bunkers, controlled by their Queen ... And a genetic timebomb is ticking in the bodies of the only people who can put an end to this deadly assault. Dan Tracy must face his worst fears as he stares his new enemy directly in the eyes. But only one can survive the final battle in space, only one will make it out alive ... The Secret Bunker Trilogy has been completely re-edited and revised to mark the 25th Anniversary in 2019 of Scotland's Secret Bunker being open to the public. This is the real-life bunker on which this trilogy is based.

Download or read book Daniel Libeskind written by Daniel Libeskind and published by Universe Pub. This book was released on 2000 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For more than twenty years Daniel Libeskind has been regarded as one of the world's leading architectural theoreticians and educators. Since 1973, he has taught at more than forty institutions, maintaining such distinguished positions as head of the Cranbrook Academy of Art's School of Architecture in Bloomfield, Michigan, founder and director of Architecture Intermundium in Milan, Italy, the Sir Bannister Fletcher Architecture Professor at the University of London in London, England, professor at the University of California, Los Angeles' School of Architecture and Urban Planning in Los Angeles, California, and the First Louis Kahn Professorship at Yale University. Throughout Libeskind's career, his approach to the profession of architecture and the development of the world's built environment has defied convention. He is one of the last heroes of the architecture world's avant-garde. And while he is the recipient of numerous awards and citations for his designs, Libeskind's architectural output has largely consisted of models, drawings, poetry, and ephemera. For years, Studio Libeskind sustained itself as a laboratory for the testing of his boundary-breaking ideas. In 1989 Libeskind competed for the commission to design what would become the Jewish Museum Berlin. He won. Since then, he relocated his office from Milan to Berlin, was nominated for the Pritzker prize for Architecture, and was commissioned to design the Felix Nussbaum Haus, a museum for the city of Osnabrück, Germany, which opened to critical acclaim in 1998. In 1999, he was awarded the Deutsche Architektur Preis (German Architecture Prize) for his Jewish Museum Berlin, a structure that received over 250,000 visitors before it contained even a single work of art. Now, because he has been commissioned to design the extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England, the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, England, the Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California, the JVC University in Guadalajara, Mexico, and, most recently, the extension to the Denver Art Museum in Denved, Colorado, the world is encountering in built form the riveting design concepts of Daniel Libeskind. the first book to get inside Libeskind's extraordinary world, The Space of Encounter eschews the traditional monograph format as it tracks the architect's life's work, pulling the reader back to the 1980s and guiding him through an often mesmerizing array of ideas and projects extending into the year 2005. By revealing for the first time in book form his project proposal texts, excerpts from lauded speeches and lectures, interviews conducted with international newspapers and periodicals, in addition to his poems and correspondence, this book captures Libeskind at a major turning point in his career. Here, we learn of Libeskind's experience of being a radical educator to becoming a high profile, convincing and inspiring architect. Complementing his brilliantly insightful textual material are his forceful drawings and full-color images of his project models, finished projects, and projects in progress.
