In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done. King's earnings from the sale of this essay will go to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Stephen King is the author of 11/22/63, Under the Dome, Carrie, The Shining, and many other bestselling works.
Seit den 1990er Jahren wird uber die gesundheitsfoerdernde Wirkung der basischen Ernahrung viel geschrieben und geforscht. Weitgehend unbekannt ist jedoch, dass sie schon um 1912 von Ragnar Berg (1873-1956) wissenschaftlich begrundet wurde. Auf der Basis eines umfangreichen Quellen- und Literaturstudiums sowie der Befragung von Zeitzeugen arbeitet der Autor Berg als "geistigen Vater" der basischen Kost heraus. Daruber hinaus eroeffnet die Arbeit Ausblicke in die Ernahrungsforschung seit ca. 1800, in Mineralstoff- und Vitaminforschung, in die Ernahrungsreformbewegung der 1920er und die "Neue Deutsche Heilkunde" der 1930er Jahre. Bergs Ernahrungsempfehlungen wurden von der Schulmedizin seiner Zeit abgelehnt. Heute, am Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts, sind sie von erstaunlicher Aktualitat.
Possessed of an unnatural and legendary hunger, the Reapers have come to Earth to establish a New Order built on the harvesting of enslaved human souls. They rule the planet. They thrive on the scent of fear. And if it is night, as sure as darkness, they will come. Ozark Free Territory, 2071: The Kurian Order has reigned for 50 years. Using the dreaded power of their Reaper avatars, the alien, vampiric Kur hold dominion over the Earth and its inhabitants. Yet there are those who would rather die fighting than surrender to the unquenchable thirst of the enemy - those like David Valentine. Returning to the Ozark Free Territory, Valentine is shocked to find it overrun by Kurians under the command of the merciless Consul Solon. In a bid to turn the tide, Valentine leads a courageous group of soldiers on a desperate mission to drive a spike into the gears of the Kurian Order. Valentine stakes life, honor, and the future of his home on a rebellion that sparks the greatest battle of his life - one that he may not survive... Bonus Audio: Includes an exclusive introduction by author E.E. Knight.

Now Geary's mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire ? an empire that is on the brink of collapse.
To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet's journey back grueling and perilous.

Admiral John ?Black Jack? Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet?and himself?in harm's way.
An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems?only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring all of the First Fleet's attempts to communicate peaceful intentions, this system's species sends its ships into battle on suicide runs while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power.
Now, with a group of his officers determined to eliminate this new threat at any cost, Geary must figure out how to breach the enemy's defenses so the fleet can reach the jump point without massive casualties?even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side?
