Honorable Mention, 1998, category of Computer Science, Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc. In this book Gary William Flake develops in depth the simple idea that recurrent rules can produce rich and complicated behaviors. Distinguishing "agents" (e.g., molecules, cells, animals, and species) from their interactions (e.g., chemical reactions, immune system responses, sexual reproduction, and evolution), Flake argues that it is the computational properties of interactions that account for much of what we think of as "beautiful" and "interesting." From this basic thesis, Flake explores what he considers to be today's four most interesting computational topics: fractals, chaos, complex systems, and adaptation. Each of the book's parts can be read independently, enabling even the casual reader to understand and work with the basic equations and programs. Yet the parts are bound together by the theme of the computer as a laboratory and a metaphor for understanding the universe. The inspired reader will experiment further with the ideas presented to create fractal landscapes, chaotic systems, artificial life forms, genetic algorithms, and artificial neural networks.
Is prophecy possible? Can some people really see the future? Strange feelings of foreboding are often cited by people as evidence that they "foresaw" a disaster. Too vague, argues Gary Williams in this elegantly written collection about lapses in time and space. Williams covers such topics as prevision and romance, foreknowledge and gambling, and the mysterious links between aviation and seeing into the future. 'A hard- to-put-down, eye-opening must read! The Foreseeable Future: The Mystery of Precognition is the author's fascinating journey exploring precognitive experiences and psychic predictions for insights about the ability. Prepare to discover some psychics really do know what the future holds!' Jane Doherty, author of Awakening The Mystic Gift
Written in the 1840s and published here for the first time, Julia Ward Howe's novel about a hermaphrodite is unlike anything of its time-or, in truth, of our own. Narrated by Laurence, who is raised and lives as a man, is loved by men and women alike, and can respond to neither, this unconventional story explores the understanding "that fervent hearts must borrow the disguise of art, if they would win the right to express, in any outward form, the internal fire that consumes them." Laurence describes his repudiation by his family, his involvement with an attractive widow, his subsequent wanderings and eventual attachment to a sixteen-year-old boy, his own tutelage by a Roman nobleman and his sisters, and his ultimate reunion with his early love. His is a story unique in nineteenth-century American letters, at once a remarkable reflection of a largely hidden inner life and a richly imagined tale of coming of age at odds with one's culture. Howe wrote The Hermaphrodite when her own marriage was challenged by her husband's affection for another man-and when prevailing notions regarding a woman's appropriate role in patriarchal structures threatened Howe's intellectual and emotional survival. The novel allowed Howe, and will now allow her readers, to occupy a speculative realm otherwise inaccessible in her historical moment.
"...at this point I knew that a paranormal voice, totally independent from the medium, was speaking in mid-space in my blacked-out bedroom. The next question would be, 'who was speaking?'" A Walk On The Wild Side is a compilation of Gary Williams' experiences with paranormal and psychic phenomena over a fifty year period. It includes his involvement with the UFO phenomena, predictions of the future made to him by psychics that came true years later, and his encounters with ghosts and poltergeists.

Book Cover Summary for "Mind Games" The God Particle or Higgs boson, as it's known in scientific and physicists' circles, was discovered on July 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern, in Switzerland. Peter Higgs and Francois Englert won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2013 for the discovery. The God Particle is responsible for the mass and the diversity of the particles in the universe. It decays quickly and presently can't be used for practical applications. In my work of Fiction, Timothy Harding Olsen, a brilliant young PhD graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is hired by Future Mankind Ventures, a worldwide organization that operates outside the laws of man and nature. They provide him with a laboratory and unlimited funds to test his theories regarding The God Particle. After months of work and experimentation, he successfully isolates and preserves the God Particle and uses it as the core of a Formula, which allows it to be applied to humans. His ensuing tests are positive on Chimpanzees, but Olsen wants to experiment on humans. With the injection of the Formula into selected areas of the human body, he will possess the ability to evolve humans by causing mass to propagate in chosen lobes of the brain and in the muscular system. When practical application to humans is perfected, whoever owns this Formula will have the ability to change the power structure of the world by evolving humans to their specific needs. Ethan Tyler, an undercover CIA Agent, is placed inside the organization to provide information to the government on this colossal breakthrough in science and Physics. The United States government doesn't want Olsen's Formula to be sold to foreign nations. Russia, China and Iran are interesting in obtaining it. When Dr. Olsen begins illegally testing the Formula on humans, all hell breaks loose. Tyler's life is in perpetual danger as he attempts to move within the power structure of Future Mankind Ventures and uncover the secrets of the company's plans. I promise you a wild ride in your imagination in "Mind Games." Can man replace and change nature's plan of evolution? Will this surreal man made evolution take the human race a hundred years into the future? Anything you can imagine can materialize in today's world. The pages of this book plunges your brain into that imagination trip, and allows you to see the results of Mind Games, which speed up the Evolutionary Process.
As the author of more than two dozen novels and hundreds of short stories, as well as essays, reviews, and columns, Ramsey Campbell is one of the most prolific writers in the field of horror literature. The consistently high level of quality in his work has resulted in every major award that weird fiction has to offer, including the Grand Master Award of the World Horror Convention, the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association, and the Living Legend Award of the International Horror Guild. Strangely, though, relatively little criticism has been written about Campbell. In Ramsey Campbell: Critical Essays on the Modern Master of Horror, Gary William Crawford has assembled a collection of articles that examine the work of one of weird fiction's most revered writers. These essays looks at a number of elements that characterize Campbell's stories and novels, including comparisons to H.P. Lovecraft, who was an early inspiration; Campbell's modern variations of Gothic fiction; his concept of evil; religious subtext in his fiction; and how adversities Campbell has faced have shaped his life and his work. In all, these essays pay homage to Campbell's painstaking craftsmanship and show that there is much to be mined in his fiction. Because Campbell is so important in the genre of horror literature, this book serves as a much needed affirmation of his work. It will be of interest to scholars of supernatural fiction in general, but also to devoted fans of this major figure in weird fiction.
When Houston, Texas FBI Special Agent, Nathaniel Hemmingway Armstrong, believed that he had lost his young son to a child molester because he was detained, and didn't pick him up from a childcare center, he was devastated. His wife, Kathy, whom he married when she became pregnant, blamed him for the loss and divorced him, taking all his assets. He suffered a mental breakdown because of the devastating guilt and turned to the bottle to ease his pain. His excessive drinking cost him his job with the FBI and subsequently, he half-heartedly opened a Private Detective business. His only comfort and companion in life was his little mix breed dog, named Nick, who loved Diet Coke and fettuccini afredo, but most of all he adored Nathaniel and attempted to take care of the drunken man. An unscrupulous and sexy young woman, a former gentleman's club dancer, hatched a plot with her lover to take advantage of Armstrong's alcoholism and frame him for the murder of her rich, older husband. The plot thickens when Armstrong's college sweetheart, Layla Sterling, now a lawyer, and the love of his life, agreed to help him if he stopped drinking. As the mystery untangles, there's a shocking turn of events that leads Armstrong to Mexico City and a life or death involvement with two warring Mexican Drug Cartel Kingpins. With the help if his little dog and his former girlfriend, he struggles to prove his innocence and to solve the mystery of his son's death.
Over the course of his short life, Michael Patrick Murphy came to personify three critically important pillars of leadership. First, before you can lead, you must positively influence others. Second, you must develop an unshakable moral character. Third, you must always act with integrity consistent with that character... an integrity and character that transcends position-only leadership and provides the all-important moral authority to lead. On June 28, 2005 LT Michael P. Murphy faced two profound moral leadership questions; the first after capturing three civilian non-combatants. The second to deliberately put himself in the enemy's direct line of fire in a final effort to get help for his men. How Michael P. Murphy chose to answer those two questions will forever separate him from those he fought. This book details the leadership traits of the most celebrated Medal of Honor recipient since World War II.
Lt.Michael Patrick Murphy, a Navy SEAL, earned the Medal of Honor
on 28 June 2005 for his bravery during a fierce fight with the
Taliban in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan. The first
to receive the nation's highest military honor for service in
Afghanistan, Lt. Murphy was also the first naval officer to earn
the medal since the Vietnam War, and the first SEAL to be honored
posthumously. A young man of great character, he is the subject of
Naval Special Warfare courses on character and leadership, and an
Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, naval base, school,
post office, ball park, and hospital emergency room have been named
in his honor.
