Data detective Ben thinks he’s succeeded in his latest drugs bust. Now he needs to find some different answers: how did humans use cloning to populate other planets across the Milky Way; how can we communicate almost instantaneously between one star system and the next?

After much research and watching old movies, he also discovers that FTL drives never quite worked, suspended animation was too much like being dead, hyperspace was never found, and matter transporters still make a mess.

Ben takes a holiday, exchanging mind and body with Lori, the partner of his dreams and is guaranteed that it’s a return ticket. Instead he finds himself being used as slave labour on a hostile desert planet where life is cheap and he’s expendable. To make matters worse, he’s lost all memory of how he got there and of who he really is.

The only person who can change him from victim to victor is Ben himself. Unfortunately, he does not know this, until an accident gives him his mind back. Follow the exploits of Ben and Lori as they fight to keep their knowledge secret. Can they succeed in their battle to escape without alerting their dangerous fellow crew members? And even if they do get away, can they reach home without finding even more trouble? Doubtful!

Satan’s Rapper

by Derek Washington

A captivating page-turner that’s equal parts thriller and horror story, Derek Washington’s novel Satan’s Rappers takes readers to the dark side of the hip hop industry.
Upcoming rapper Sykik is the hot new MC on the rap game’s most feared and respected record label: ENO Live Records (that’s “evil one” spelled backwards, for all the bad boys in the hip hop business). 
Riding high on the success of a self-produced mixtape, Sykik is on the fast track to riches and finer things – and not just because of his lyrical skills. Behind the scenes, his rise to fame is aided by violent rituals, black magic and an evil conspiracy that has held a tight, cold grip on the hip hop industry for decades.
With help from the dark side, Sykik and his cohorts cook up a devilish debut album that has listeners hypnotized – and soon the money starts piling up. Sykik started on the bottom – now he’s here. Until disaster strikes and Satan’s Rapper finds himself fighting for his very soul…
SATAN’S RAPPER is thrilling, humorous, and filled with hair-raising action. Plus, hip hop insider Derek Washington has sprinkled in enough detail and behind-the-scenes revelations to have readers asking: Is this truth or fiction?

DISCLAIMER: Satan’s Rapper contains violence, mild drug use and strong language.

The Traveller

by Garrett Addison

Sometimes to get the measure of your life you just need a break from being yourself.

A family man struggling in his pursuit of a work/life balance embarks on yet another trip at the whims of his tyrannical bitch of a boss.  But on this trip he is a world apart from his usual self.  Suddenly confident, capable and unafraid of his manager, reclaiming his life becomes less about corporate advancement and satisfying his ego than outright revenge on his boss.  With nothing but success in his wake and seemingly limitless potential at his disposal, being coerced to work with his nemesis in a remote corner of the world provides the opportunity for not just a confrontation, but a final solution to what he sees as the bane of his life.  Succeed or fail, either way this trip will be the making of him or the end of him.

Stick A Needle In My Eye

by Julia Madeleine

Stick A Needle In My Eye is a collection of 17 short stories of mayhem that are not for the faint of heart. These stories, one of which was nominated for a Derringer Award in 2011, have been featured in a number of crime fiction magazines.

Buckets of blood are spilt between these pages, and some nice (and some not so nice) people die horrible deaths. Here you will meet a pedophile who picks the wrong little girl to try and molest; a clown who gets bullied by his wife one time too many, a serial killer who likes to take postmortem photographs of his victims, more than one angry wife/girlfriend seeking revenge on the other woman, and more than one escaped mental patient with murder in her heart.

Full Circle

by Chuck Alderman

This (Novella) is a two pronged story line. On one hand it features the rise of a mob hit man. The second connected story is about a fence, a low level outsider of the mob. It tells the two stories alternating in the book as they relate, and the Gypsy hag who’s control drives the way it goes. Her hold on our characters is subtle, yet devious.

Buccaneer Dan the Most Fierce and Good-Looking Buccaneer of All Time in a Quest for Treasure: Part I (Buccaneer Dan in a Quest for Treasure)

by Leland Faux

Buccaneer Dan the Most Fierce and Good-Looking Buccaneer of All Time in a Quest for Treasure: Part I is a story loosely inspired by partially true events, written by Leland K. Faux. If you’re interested in entertaining, lighthearted pirate adventure books, this book is a good choice for you.

Buccaneer Dan and his not-quite-as fiercesome crew of buccaneers are on a whimsical quest for treasure. But technically only the first part of that quest-that’s why I call this book “Part I.”

Now if you’re thinking that using “Part I” in this way was pretty clever of me, read the book and you will be even more amazed.

But don’t just take my word for it:

“Really funny and clever.”

– Natascha

“It’s too violent.”

-My mom

“A swashbuckling adventure, but one part actually made me queasy.”

– Hannah

“This is probably the best book ever written about Buccaneer Dan the Most Fierce and Good-Looking Buccaneer of All Time.”

– Leland K. Faux

“I’ve never heard of that book.”

– People who have never heard of the book.

Still not convinced? It gets better. One of the most amazing things about this pirate adventure story is that it was designed to be read in only 2-3 visits to the porcelain throne-one of the first books of its kind! But that’s not all. If you are unable to read this book in those 2-3 visits, you can read it in a different amount of time or in a different manner. This book provides you with all the flexibility you need!

Izzy and the Crystal of Power: Galactic Guerillas Saga, Book 1

But Izzy’s world is rocked after she uses her mysteriously surging paranormal abilities to bombard a local “scumbag” to within an inch of his life. Removed from command and banned from energy-working, Izzy must use her wits and intuition to regain what she’s lostâ??and discover the true origin and purpose of her extraordinary new powers.


by James M. Weil

Robert Price is a burnt-out man in his early fifties who works in a dead-end job as a programmer with a dying programming language at a medical collections agency. He knows in just a few years he will be completely obsolete. To make matters worse, he is so underpaid that he is about to lose his house. His wife is a relentless shrew that he can’t stand living with anymore, and who refuses to work. So, to escape his miserable reality, he daydreams about being young and virile again with a phenomenally successful writing career and is in love with a beautiful Colombian rock star who very closely resembles Shakira. Basically, he is living two lives–his fantasy world and the one where he is about to be crushed by his obsolescence. In his fantasy world he is the perfect image of what he thinks he should be and is a gentleman to the core. There is nothing erotic in his fantasies; it’s all about blissfulness and being in love with the woman of his dreams.

In direct opposition to his deluded fantasies, his only true way to vent his frustrations is his overwhelming addiction to seeing a string of beautiful, Latin hookers in Queens. One of the hookers, a gorgeous Dominican named Kelly, falls in love with him, and they end up having an unlikely love affair.

A Pat on the Head: The hilarious vegetarian yokel gypsy murder fun book!

by Bob Perrett

A Pat on the Head is a hilarious work of comic fiction set in 1928. It tells the tale of a simple farm labourer who is cajoled by his radically socialist vegetarian girlfriend into freeing a particularly friendly calf from the clutches of a sociopathic farmer, thereby unleashing a fearsome torrent of scrumping, illicit sex, forbidden secrets and murder most foul on a sleepy Somerset village.

Max Merrybear, canine author of The Word of Dog, says: “Oh dear me. Parents can be soooo embarrassing. Still, this is a jolly good book: barking mad in places I’m afraid, but I love my ‘human daddy’ all the same, and it is rather funnier than my seminal book The Word of Dog …

What others are saying:

‘This is so good it’s almost like a real book.’ A tramp/hobo who was after a free meal and claimed his name was Jesus. We gave him two cheese omelettes with salad. He left the salad. If I’m honest, I’m not at all sure he actually read the book.

‘I have to admit that until I read this I was thinking of inflicting 1,000 years of pain on humanity, but now I’m feeling surprisingly mellow.’ The Elder God Cthulhu.

‘Blackberry stolen. Reward offered. See inside for details. If found, please return to 1928.’ Mr Ibbs.

Bud’s Christmas Wish

by Ashley Nemer

InDTale Magazine 2012 Finalist for Best Short Story / Novella for the Recognition of Novel Excellence (RONE) Awards

If a dream is a wish your heart makes, can it hear those things we want even if we don’t what they are? When sorrow brings young Lucy home to a land full of mystery, steeped in tradition and colored with unspoken magic, she finds herself re-evaluating her life and her own place in it. Things are never what they seem and people are seldom what you THINK them to be if all you base it on is what your eyes see and not what your soul knows. There’s a fine line between destiny and duty, but when both are blended with love, who knows what miracles can occur at Christmas.

The Ultimate Liver Cleanse for Radiant Health

I Believe Anyone Can Heal Their Liver Using This Powerful, Rejuvenating Liver Cleanse

You could be just a cleanse away from a healthier liver! In this book you will learn:

How To Cleanse Your Liver to Remove Built-Up Toxins

Your liver is your body’s powerful detoxification organ. When you take medications, drugs or drink alcohol, it’s your liver that must break down these toxins and convert them into less harmful substances that can be passed out by your body.

But when your liver gets overworked, it can oxidize, causing free radical damage that can dramatically reduce your liver’s ability to function properly. Cleansing can help remove these excess toxins and heal some of that damage, especially when done early and regularly.

How To Cleanse Your Liver to Remove Excess Fat

Your liver is also responsible for most of your body’s metabolism of fats, especially triglycerides. When your liver is damaged, injured or overworked, its ability to metabolize fats is reduced which can cause long-term weight gain. Simply by detoxing your liver, you can restore balance to your body and your weight.

The Best Herbs and Supplements for a Healthier Liver

In addition, you’ll learn about the best herbs and supplements that can help keep your liver healthy, including turmeric, artichoke, dandelion and much more!

Instant ab workouts

by Infinite Ideas

You probably don’t realise it but there’s more than one set of muscles to your abs and many more ways of working them than spending hours doing punishing crunches in the gym. The rectus abdominis is your potential six-pack and the muscle most people are thinking of when they talk about abs, but your abs are made up of three sets of muscles. As well as the rectus abdominis there are the obliques in your side, which come into play when twisting and bending, and the transversus abdominis, which goes all the way across your stomach, behind the rectus abdominis. For maximum toning you need to work all three muscles individually and together rather than just focusing on the easily worked and dominant rectus abdominis. The good news is that there are plenty of exercises you can do without even needing to go to the gym so your workout can be varied and interesting rather than the gruelling tedium of endless crunches. Here’s to flatter stomachs!


by Jenny R Johnson

This book will give you an insight on how to produce organic vegetables which are free from pesticides, insecticides or any sort of harmful chemicals which are injected or absorbed by the plants during their growth in farms or fields and breed fish together.

Aquaponics Gardening is a basic three system function which helps you to grow vegetables and breed fish at the same time; it’s one of those things which you can do in your own backyard. It consists of breeding fish in a tank, using the waste of the fish as a fertilizer for the vegetables and then the same water that is provided to the plants is used by the fish. We can basically say that Aquaponics is the integration of Aquaculture i.e. the breeding of fish and Hydroponics i.e. growing of plants in water without soil. Scientifically said, Aquaponics is a food production system which involves Aquaculture and Hydroponics in a symbiotic environment.

Hence, after going through this book you’ll be able to find yourself in an easy position to make your own Aquaponics Garden and can always have yourself a fish and veggie dinner at any time.

Whatever you want to do in life you need to take charge of your dreams, put a plan in place and follow it. It’s a common problem and has been for hundreds of years. The first of the books we’ve sought advice from was published in the mid-eighteenth century, while the most recent one was published nearly two hundred years later. The ideas in both these and the other five books we’ve turned to are still amazingly relevant. The ideas in Achieve your goals are drawn from best-selling titles in the Infinite Success series. This series takes the most important ideas from self help classics and gives them a contemporary twist, and Achieve your goals contains striking nuggets of wisdom from: Napoleon Hill’s Think and grow rich; Samuel Smiles’ Self-Help; George S. Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon; Robert Collier’s The Secret of the Ages; Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Self-reliance; Bertrand Russell’s The Conquest of Happiness and Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth. To make these ideas accessible we’ve illustrated the thoughts of the classic writers with examples drawn from twenty-first century life. In the â??Here’s an idea for youâ?¦’ section at the end of every chapter we’ve also given you some hints on how to put the ideas in that chapter into practice right now.

Diabetic Diet: A Complete Step By Step Guide for Beginners

Diabetes is on the rise not only in adults but in kids too these days. Diabetes is a serious problem, if ignored it can also have serious consequences. Diabetes is a curable disease and it can also be prevented. For prevention, one needs to take proper care of his lifestyle. A person’s daily routine can very much be a factor that can cause diabetes.

Diabetes and obesity are closely related to each other. What you eat and in what quantity can affect your blood glucose levels. It is essential for you to keep a check on what you eat and follow a healthy lifestyle in order to keep diabetes at bay.

Dark Persuasion Techniques – The Psychology Of Manipulation

by Charles Steed

You’ve got the strong feeling something just isn’t right. And you’ve had it for a while. You work hard, pay more than your fair share in taxes, you’re a law abiding citizen, a peaceful, productive member of society, and still, something’s missing. But it’s not your fault, not completely anyway.

Despite your best efforts, you never seem to get ahead. And what makes it worse is, people with far less talent are often doing very well. Sound familiar?

So what’s the answer? Fuggetaboutit! Before you go looking for answers you need to be asking the right questions. Every day society becomes more of a rigged game against the people who actually keep the wheels turning. Why do we accept a rigged game so readily? Because the people in control use coersion and intimidation to sell their hidden agendas.

If you listen closely you can almost hear these bloodsuckers shouting, “Hey everyone, look over there.” Then they point to some phony crisis while they’re busy picking our pockets with some completely unrelated dirty trick. Since the beginning of civilization people in power have been manipulating the masses to their advantage. And that’s what this is all about. Recognizing their game for what it is and insulating yourself against intimidation and manipulation.

The methods you’ll discover in Dark Persuasion Techniques will protect you from dishonest individuals as well as the major manipulative forces in the world. There’s just one catch, you’ve got to use them.

Open Season On Sacred Cows

We’re going to go past the many false appearances generally accepted by the masses to what’s real. Here are a few of the cornerstone institutions offering illusions designed to keep the herd moving their way:

Governments, including commissions, agencies, bureaus, & other entities
Religious organizations of all types
Big business & Industry
The banking industry & large stock brokers
The media, including print, TV, film, & the web
Mainstream advertising agencies
The military
Law enforcement agencies
Intelligence Agencies: CIA, Britain’s MI6 & the Moussad
Labor unions
The entertainment industry
If you have some sort of devotion to any of the above be warned that what you’ll find in this guide will make you uncomfortable, the truth is like that. You’ll love this revealing guide because it illustrates exactly how people in power use emotion along with blatant deception to control individuals and the masses. Of course, the world is loaded with freelance parasites too. This information will protect you from them as well.

Protect Yourself From:

Deliberate, calculated guilt trips designed to manipulate you
The clever use of fear, pride, envy, class warfare and more
Using your own integrity against you
Selling one concept and delivering something entirely different
Accepting blatant deception without question from trusted “authority” figures
Subtle confusion to fool the masses
Promising security in a world where no such promise can ever be honored

The information primarily falls under the heading of motivational psychology. But you won’t find many books that lay it out so clearly. This is an in depth study of human manipulation originating with the planet’s first manipulators and progressing all the way up to our present-day topsy turvy society.

Nearly all sections are written with an introduction and then with a true-to-life and often humorous anecdotes making the points crystal clear. People learn better and retain more with stories because stories make a concept come alive making the point more interesting and enjoyable.

Dark Persuasion Techniques – The Psychology Of Manipulation is the sword and shield you’ll use to combat those who would deliberately try to ambush your life and leave you to wither. I strongly encourage you to pick up the sword and shield and to make your way through the rest of your life with a cool and cautious, yet self-assured and confidant posture. You’ll no longer take crap from anyone! Be sure to take a Look Inside!

All it takes is some elbow grease along with a little time, and you can quickly have your very own landscape design.


There are many products in the marketplace that will help you find the very best home landscaping ideas available.

To keep your mistakes down to a minimum, you will want to be sure to do plenty of research before beginning your project. If you do make a mistake, don’t fret about it; anything can be repaired.

Before you begin your home landscaping project, you will need to be aware of any gas, electrical or cable lines that may be running through your lawn. This is especially important if you are planning to be doing a lot of excavating. Not only can this cost you a lot of money, but it can also be extremely harmful. Hitting an electrical line with a metal shovel could put an end to all of your work, and more importantly, your life.

Understanding Your Metabolism: Learn Fast and Effective Weight Loss Triggers

by Roxanne Casely

Are you ready to discover your body’s true potential?

There isn’t a more regularly used word in the weight loss (and weight gain) dictionary than metabolism. Undoubtedly, it’s not unusual to overhear men and women communicating about their struggles over the dreaded holiday bulge or battles with love handles. It leads to the question of whether their metabolism is actually working or not.

Sadly, many people simply don’t understand the relationship between metabolism and metabolic change. This is seldom their fault. Certainly there is an abundance of information floating around out there, most of which is relayed over the internet or by means of a mutual friend who “has a personal fitness instructor.” Inevitably, there are bound to be confusing and conflicting messages. Additionally, many people (quite understandably) mistake their own weight gain or loss as a result of metabolic change. In some cases this is true, but it’s not always the case. For instance, as we will certainly review in this book, there are actually scientific ways to enhance the rate of metabolic change, which in turn enables the body to burn more calories.

Paradigm Shift: Positive Affirmations for Success | Change your Paradigm Change your Life

by Mind Master

Your Subconscious Mind Is SABOTAGING Your Life

Change your paradigm change your life

The subconscious mind is a mystery. It’s there to protect you, keep you safe, but it will also RUIN your life and keep you STUCK in the life you’re in now. You have probably heard of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. You’ve also probably been sitting around pretending you have all these things, but they NEVER show up. (Feel good, we’ve all been there) The reason why is because for those things to show up your subconscious mind HAS TO AGREE with what your conscious mind is thinking. (If two or more agree it shall be done) I believe in the bible when it says if two or more agree it is not talking about 2 people, but 2 minds. Your conscious mind, and your subconscious mind. If you sit around all day thinking “I’m a millionaire” Nothing will ever happen because your subconscious mind is just ignoring it dead set on the fact that you are NOT a millionaire. To “fool” your subconscious mind you will need to give it messages that skip right past all your conscious blocks. This book will teach you exactly how to do this. Sounds like science fiction huh? Well, it’s not. This is extremely easy to do, it will work for ANYBODY whether you believe it will work or not, it will work, and it will work for you. Imagine feeling better than you ever have everyday, living in the house of your dreams, having the perfect soul mate, HAVING ANYTHING YOU WANT! LITERALLY!

When I first started learning about this stuff I thought it was absolutely nuts, but I was at a low point in life, and the person I heard it from was very convinced this would change my life, even though I definitely thought there was no way something so silly would make a difference in my life. Now I RELIGIOUSLY study the subconscious mind. I’ve been using daily affirmations for the last 2 years and my life has changed DRAMATICALLY!!! Seriously, this is spooky as hell, it almost feels like magic, or witch craft, but trust me, it’s not. I don’t mess around with the occult. I could ramble on forever about this but that wouldn’t change your life, but the information in this book will. Your subconscious mind has been stuck in the same paradigm your whole life. Change your paradigm, change your life.

How much would you pay to dramatically change every aspect of your life forever?

LifeTime Manager – Defeating Depression and Anxiety

by David Graham

Defeating Depression
It is estimated that as many as 50% of people will suffer from depression at some time in their lives and – if you are suffering depression you are not alone. There are many possible causes of depression ranging from genetic pre-disposition to some types of situations or events in your upbringing. A common cause is stress. In this book you will be provided with tools to identify if you are depressed and if so what type of depression you have and how to manage it.

Conquering Anxieties, Phobias & OCD
Anxiety is not fear – fear manifests itself as a reaction to an external situation, object or event whereas anxiety is disassociated from either of these and its focus is internal not external. Consequently, if you are anxious it is very often extremely hard to pin down exactly what you are anxious about, which can be very frustrating and adds to your anxiety. The intensity of anxiety ranges from a vague feeling of uneasiness to a full blown panic attack. How do you identify your anxieties and phobias and how do you manage them. This book provides you with tools and techniques you will need.


by Louis Spirito

It’s The Sopranos meets Marley & Me when a volatile, chronically ticked-off writer struggles to help an abused, timid, big-hearted shelter dog.

When the last of their aged 4-legged animal “kids” passes away, Lou Spirito and his wife go looking for a rescue dog. Although he insists that he’s open to any dog in need, Lou secretly longs for a dog like Rebel, the rollicking Irish Setter that shared his world when he was a struggling actor living the vida loca of sex, drugs, & disco in the wonderland of New York City. He longs for a jaunty dog to transport him back to the carefree days before mortgages, life insurance and missed opportunitiesâ?¦so the last thing on his wish list is a frightened, muscle-bound, scarred, and carsick Pit Bull.

In contrast to his fun-loving predecessor, Tanner is an emotional Geiger counter. He cowers at strange objects, flinches at loud noises, and vomits whenever he is stressed – which is most of the time. And why shouldn’t he? His immature new owner, Lou, is a raging bull! Having honed anger to an art form over his lifetime, Lou constantly storms and curses at the slightest provocation–misplaced keys, computer glitches, even mayo on a turkey sandwich (don’t ask). Unlike Marley and John Grogan, Lou’s is a case of “good” dog vs. “bad” owner. For this odd couple to flourish, one of them will have to change. And fast. Thankfully for the writer, the dog wins out. It isn’t easy. It isn’t always pretty. But it will touch your heart.

10% of the profits from this book will go to animal rescue organizations

Why Can’t I Lose Weight Like Others – The Hidden Diet Mistakes Debunked By a Former Overweight

by Mirsad Hasic

Why Can’t I Lose Weight Just LIke The Other Ordinary People?

Like so many others, I have also struggled from being overweight. I’ve actually lost count on the number of diets I’ve tried and failed at. I know that some diets do work, and work well, because I’ve seen the results in other people. Alas, I appeared to be one of those folks who just never managed to crack it.

In my frustration, I decided to put pen to paper and write down my feelings and annoyances with these failed attempts. Then one day, something on the page suddenly struck me. I found that I was repeating some common mistakes over and over again, and without even realizing it at the time.

No wonder I was having little success with losing and maintaining a healthy weight. It’s like Henry Ford once said: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” And in my case, that was repeated failure.

The Solution: 40 Hidden Diet Mistakes Debunked by a Former Overweight

The 40 diet mistakes outlined in this book have all been identified by my own personal weight loss journey. Each chapter first explains the specific mistake I was making, and then goes on to give a solution for the problem. In other words, I was fortunate enough to identify the problems by recording my failures at weight loss.

It’s impossible to find a solution to anything until we first know what the problem is, but luckily for me, and anyone in a similar situation who reads my book, I found an effective way to correct each of these mistakes, and my dieting success skyrocketed as a result.

Correcting Diet Mistakes by Adapting Simple but Highly Effective Strategies

In my book you will learn how to turn your dieting failures into a weight loss success story. Adopt the evergreen tactics revealed in the chapters, and you WILL get to lose those excess pounds once and for all!

by James Shipman

In 1453 Constantinople is the impregnable jewel of the East. It has stood as the greatest Christian city for a millennium as hordes have crashed fruitlessly against its walls.

But Mehmet II, the youthful Sultan of the Ottoman Turks, has besieged the city. His opponent is Constantine XI, the wise and capable ruler of the crumbling Eastern Roman Empire. Mehmet, distrusted by his people and hated by his Grand Vizer, must accomplish what all those before him have failed to do: capture Constantinople. To prove that he deserves the throne that his father once took from him, Mehmet, against all advice, storms the city. If he fails, he will not only have failed himself and his people, but he will surely lose his life.

On the other side of the city walls, the emperor Constantine must find a way to stop the greatest army in the medieval world. To finance his defenses, he becomes a beggar to the Pope, the Italian city-states, and the Hungarians. But the price for aid is high: The Pope demands the Greeks reunite the Eastern and Western churches and accept the Latin faith. If Constantine wants aid for his people he must choose between their lives and their souls.

Two leaders, two peoples, two faiths battle for their future before the mighty walls of Constantinople.

Moth To The Flame: The Story of Anne Boleyn

by Angela Warwick

She was one of the most fascinating women of her generation; intelligent, clever and alluring. But despite all of her undoubted talents, her fate was sealed from the moment Henry V111 set eyes on her.

Anne Boleyn deserves to be remembered as so much more than just the Queen who lost her head. She was a woman of immense personal charm who lived during one of the most colourful, exciting and brutal eras of English history. Often stubborn and impulsive, Anne was a rebellious daughter, a loving and critical sister, a loyal friend and a dangerous enemy. This is her story, from her childhood at Hever Castle through to her relationship with the King who desired and ultimately destroyed her.

To Kill the Duke

by Sam Moffie

It was the 1950’s. The white-hot Cold War was raging between The USA and The USSR. And, in Joseph Stalin’s mind, nothing would be quite as hot as assassinating the ultimate symbol of Western machismo culture – the actor John Wayne. Thus, the elite Russian spy squad of Zavert, Boris Gila, Alexei Aleksandra and Ivan Viznapu start on a dangerous (and hysterical) mission that brings them in contact with gangsters Mickey Cohen and Johnny Stompanato, the billionaire Howard Hughes, the producer/director Dick Powell, the actress Susan Hayward, countless others and the big man himself – John Wayne.

What transpires is as zany as John Wayne playing a role that was written for Marlon Brando… whoops! That really happened, and the result was ‘The Conqueror,” which plays a prominent role in to kill the duke, Sam Moffie’s fifth novel. Brilliantly satiric, the book also captures political duplicity and amorality, which makes it all too relevant to today’s world. The Cold War, more than ready for prime time satire, lets Moffie keep the heat on the establishment and most of all, those in authority.

Privateers and Kings (The Butler Family Chronicles)

by Brad Koch

â??’Privateers and Kings” is the first book in a new series that tells of one family and their progeny whose fortunes and actions are fictional. In following the family down through the centuries in the Butler Family Chronicle series, I have set them in events that did happen or could have happened.

Book one of the Butler Family Chronicles, “Privateers and Kings “, depicts the American Colonies during and after the reformation in England. As a work of fiction this book and the series that follows tell of a family of entrepreneurs who, as privateers and colonists, benefited from the generosity of the Stuart Kings they loyally served. Although many well-known names and historical events are included, fictitious liberties have been taken with characters that actually lived and fictitious speech put into their mouths which, in my opinion, are not out of character for the persons involved.

The Stuart Kings, James I, Charles I, Charles II and James II, were generous in their granting, chartering or giving away land in North America. It was land that none of the Kings had never even seen. It cost them nothing for this generosity and furthered the British plan of imperialism. New England, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia were given to friends and proprietor’s. New York and New Jersey were added to the crown in a bloodless war against the Netherlands and given by Charles the second to his brother the Duke of York. Charles also gave Pennsylvania to William Penn to settle a debt.

The Virginia colony began as a commune, governed by a group of stockholders in London. The settlers had no rights except to work and produce for their proprietors. When these communes were ready to collapse due to mismanagement and the lack of will to work hard to produce crops for unknown persons in England, changes were made in the articles of incorporation to allow the settlers to own and manage their land. The colonists eventually survived, persevered and soon prospered.

As privateers the Butler family, as did other privateers of time, augmented the naval arm of Britain in the capture and destruction of enemy ships and cargoes thereby profiting from the many wars being fought during this period.

The adventures depicted in this story paralleled actual happenings in those early days in the development of our country. Distance, travel time and a different lifestyle between the two continents isolated colonists from England and they began to develop a new culture, the genesis of a future nation.

Shakespeare’s Witch

by J.D. Steffensen

In a world of glory and treason, three strangers come together. One is born to lead his country, one to battle for England’s soul, and one to preserve its magic.

Shakespeare’s Witch is a story of three unlikely friends who risk their lives, fortunes and honor for each other and for England. Beatrice, accused of witchcraft, must choose between Henry, the dashing, wealthy Earl of Southampton, or William Shakespeare, the passionate poet and a leader of the Catholic resistance. Can Beatrice protect Shakespeare if she gives her heart to the Earl? Can either man resist Beatrice’s alluring, dark beauty? Can the three bring peace to Elizabeth’s kingdom?

This story is based on historical research that reveals the complexity of three relationships and the religious and political conflict that was Queen Elizabeth’s England.

Meeting with Christ and Other Poems

by deepak chaswal

Poetry book – ‘Meeting with Christ and Other Poems’ is written by internationally renowned poet Deepak Chaswal. His poetry has been widely appreciated by eminent poets, critics and poetry lovers around the globe.

Prof. Hugh Fox (Professor Emeritus of Michigan State University, archaeologist, editor, writer, and iconic poet of international fame) has liked and appreciated this book in these words:
“One of the deepest, widest, most universal poetry books ever written about individual spirituality in a world-wide context. And Chaswal has the single most original view of Christianity in all its totality and specifics of anyone else on the contemporary scene. What he wants is individual sanity, salvation, an escape from the depravities of the modern world into an ancient oneness with the universe, a kind of reworking of human spirituality, so that it really functions and Man as such can glide into, drift into individual completeness. Christ isn’t someone distant for Chaswal but someone he goes to Jerusalem to meet and converse with, all about a return to essential humanity. He hates greed, selfishness, in a sense the whole mechanical-cybernetic drifting of the modern world into a flow that is turning humankind into something minor and self-involved that it was never intended to be. Chaswal identifies with blacks, whites, Indians in India, Americans….you name it, he identifies with it. Universalism at its most universal. You read his poetry and you go through a kind of spiritual renewal. One of, perhaps, THE most spiritually renewing poet on the contemporary scene. WONDERFUL WORK! I really loved it.”

In the words of Candice James, Poet Laureate, New Westminster, BC CANADA :
“Deepak Chaswal is a master of words and weaves them into an intricate pattern that indelibly imprints the mind. His poem, “Man”, tells succinctly the story of our existence from cradle to grave. In “Day of Judgement” Chaswal’s poetry wanders the bleak alleyways of ignorance, atrocity, and man’s inhumanity to man. He then leads us from the paths of iniquity into a gentle serenity with his musing in his poem “Joy”. Deepak Chaswal bares his soul to bleed onto every page that you may be further enriched for reading it.”

Felix Nicolau (prolific poet, novelist, critic and Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at “Hyperion” University of Bucharest, Romania, where he is the Dean of Faculty of Letters and Foreign Languages) observes:
“Now and again Christ pops up before our eyes – bearer of intense messages. But when He emerges in front of the Poet there’ll be some mind-twisting revelation for sure. Deepak Chaswal regretfully conjures apocalypse and playfully takes snapshots of voracious appearances. His art can’t sit legs crossed and contemplate ivory towers. Every verse in this book testifies for or against something, proving the intellectual and political charge of contemporary poetry. Then, the details and frailties of a world in turmoil are cunningly surprised by the poet. Such an art refutes the confined vision of Cyclops and energetically assumes the thousand-eyed body of Argus. More than ever, the poet is a seer, full of experience and innocence in the same time.”

Philip Ellis , a freelance critic, poet and scholar from Australia comments:
“The poetry of Deepak Chaswal’s Meeting with Christ and Other Poems invokes the exterior world in language both spiritual and secular, so that the world becomes something newer and stranger than what it was in the past. It is also a melange of images and motifs which appear, disappear and reappear throughout this collection, and it is a body of work unique to his life experiences and his worldview. It is a poetry where the tropes of Western religion, such as Christ and angels, encounter Chaswal’s eastern milieu and are transformed, made, again, strange. The result of all this is a verbal and formal richness, using rhyme and free verse alike in its dexterity, and poems that are both distinctive.

Over the Edge

by Michael Hearing

A new bride and party girl who marries merely to escape her former life. A naïve, solicitous husband who sees no harm in an ordered life. A honeymoon hike on a mountain trail. And a tragic outcome.

Murder, manslaughter, a misunderstanding gone horribly wrong, or sheer accident? Perception is everything, isn’t it? In any case, justice has a strange way of working itself out.

“Over the Edge” is a short story – a psychological thriller and a tale of horror – of approximately 3,700 words.

Excerpt . . .

She stood in the middle of the trail with her back to cliff-edge and the abyss below, her breathing shallow and rapid as her thumbs flew across the buttons on her phone. Her highlighted and feathered blonde hair lifted just perceptibly off her shoulders in the thin mountain breeze, but her mascara remained decidedly unaffected. The text message went like this:

u r the first to know. its done ive taken care of it. idk what comes next but im free now. dont worry about me ill c u soon. im going home now.

The message concluded with an incongruous “LOL.” But Amber was her best friend, and she, of all people, would understand.

Their wedding, to Heather, had been more an inconvenience than anything else. Sure, she had agreed to it, had accepted Josh’s proposal – after nearly two years of his trying to get her to – but mostly as a way out. For she had grown tired of her life – tired of the relentlessly revolving round of parties, the blackouts and hangovers, the awkward fumbling of men, the lack of money, the cramped apartment. So she had accepted.

She had worked with Josh for the past two years at Capital Investments as his administrative assistant. The job paid well, and he had seemed like a good boss in the beginning. But, then, things soon began to change, and his importunities started up. Oh, yes, she remembered all right.

All the other employees seemed to like Joshua Manley and always spoke well of him. But she could tell Рshe knew Рwhat lurked behind that fa̤ade. She could see it in the devouring looks and the stalkerish actions clothed as solicitude, as well as in his attempts to control as evidenced by his many phone calls and unwarranted and unannounced visits to her office. Yeah, she knew Рshe had seen it all before.

She had been at Capital investments barely a month when it started: flowers and cards, candy and balloons, lunch-date offers. Finally one morning, red-faced and stammering, Josh had asked her out on a real date. He delivered the request and then just stood there in her office door, hands in pockets, shuffling his feet and staring at the floor. A sliver of sympathy and embarrassment for him somehow lodged in her heart – but only for a brief moment.

Still, before she knew what she was doing, she had both accepted and dismissed him: “Yeah, sure, whatever.” His head shot up, eyes shining with what co-workers later said was eagerness and joy. But she had seen that lustful light before and knew exactly what it meant.

“Really? I mean – okay great. But really?”

“Yeah, really.” She sighed and lost herself in studying her computer screen.

“Okay, then, great. I’ll pick you up at eight.”


That first date had been, in her estimation, a disaster. Oh, the restaurant was fancier than any she’d ever been in before, and the food and wine were great. And he had been a gentleman in every way, opening doors, taking her coat, pulling out her chair, asking repeatedly if she wanted anything else. But that’s how it always began. Besides, he was just . . . weird.

Later, back at her apartment, she had tried to seduce him. It hadn’t worked, though. He had said he was saving himself and wanted it to be special – whatever the hell that meant. He had just given her a peck on the cheek, smiled weakly, and said, “I’ll see you tomorrow, okay?” What a coward.

And, too, the more rapacious partners at the firm often took advantage of him. He just smiled that maddening, fatuous smile and

The attacks must be stopped. Jezebel must be foundâ??and soon, you seeâ??there is one other complication. Parker seems to have come down with an annoying little virus. No, it’s not one of those irritating summer colds. It’s certain death.

She’s a murderess, huge and black as a Hell-bound night.

Beware, Jezebel is on the loose!

What others are saying about Jezebel:

“Kessler has crafted a compelling and intense novel that grabs you by the throat and won’t let go. His characters are well drawn and complex. You’ll find yourself yelling out loud at them in either fear or frustration. The plot is full of twists and turns that never let you relax.

“Jezebel is definitely a book you will remember. You may also find yourself looking a little nervously at your beloved pet. Is that a smile – or could it be a snarl…? Highly recommended!”â??Nancy L. Mehl “Author” from
* * *
“Kessler is a very strong writer who creates in his first novel an almost palpable moment in time. Disturbing as his subject matter is, he unabashedly writes what he sees with the unblinking eye of a well-trained sniper. All of his characters have redemptive qualities, but are full of the human frailties that the flesh is heir to. The reader finds himself lusting after the nubile Sarah Hill, while simultaneously trying to focus on the fantastic Julie Parker waiting at home, willing himself (and the hero) to make the right choice. Kessler draws you in and forces you to care about his creations even as he rips their world asunder before your very eyes.

“â?¦an excellent first effort and a really enjoyable read. This is definitely a book that will be savored by the adult mystery/crime enthusiast. An author to watch.”â??Jason D. Larche
* * *
“A fine, scary thriller. Gordon Kessler has crafted himself one fine, scary thriller in Jezebel. The fact that this scenario actually could happen made it all the more frightening to me. I couldn’t help but think while reading it what a good movie it would make. All the ingredients are at hand: interesting characters, with non-stop fright and suspense that plays well against the Heartland locale. The prologue alone was enough to make my hair stand on end.

If you enjoy best-selling action/adventure thriller authors like Don Winslow and Clive Cussler, as well as some of the best thrillers in eBooks by indie authors like John Locke and JA Konrath, you’ll love Brainstorm.

NY Times bestselling authors agree about Brainstorm:

“â?¦a wild rideâ?¦kick-assâ?¦will have you thrumming through the pages well into the nightâ?¦handled with stunning effect.”â??James Rollins, author of the thrillers Map of Bones, Black Order, The Doomsday Key, The Devil Colony, Skeleton Key and many more (about Brainstorm).

“â?¦exciting and fast-paced as a thrill ride on a dive bomber, a maelstrom of action, violence, murder and mayhem, way too much fun to put down. Kessler really knows his stuff.”â??Douglas Preston, author of the thrillers Relic, The Codex, Book of the Dead, and many more (about Brainstorm).

The Diaper Man

by Vincent Todarello

THE DIAPER MAN is Vincent Todarello’s first installment in his forthcoming collection of short stories inspired by actual events on Long Island.

This heart-pounding tale of terror takes place at an abandoned mental facility, where years earlier a deranged psychopath known as The Diaper Man escaped from the insane asylum one stormy night. Authorities said the lunatic was captured and killed, but the local urban legend is that he still roams the decrepit halls of the old crumbling institution.

When some young kids venture inside for cheap thrills and to shoot a low budget zombie movie, they might be surprised to find that the old tale is true.

The Diaper Man is a straight forward, gory, R-rated hack-and-slash fest in the style of Todarello’s favorite film genre: 1980’s horror.

A true throwback, The Diaper Man pays homage to a time when it was okay to flash pointless, gratuitous nudity on screen, and when it was awesome to anticipate the creative ways the killer chose to dispense his victims. If you like all things scream, then you will love The Diaper Man.

And don’t forget to stay tuned for more short stories in Todarello’s series of Long Island urban legends.

They Only Come Out at Night

by F. Kearney

Terror reigns deep beneath the streets of New York City. The subway system is plagued by a series of unsolved, bizarre and particularly gruesome murders. A young man is found in a Brooklyn station with his heart crudely ripped out of his chest. The headless body of a conductor is discovered inside the locked cab of a Number 6 train in lower Manhattan. Authorities blame these, as well as several other equally macabre crimes, on the city’s growing, and increasingly aggressive homeless population.

Melissa Manning, however, isn’t buying that explanation.

Having experienced a personal tragedy in the subway years ago, Melissa is definitely no stranger to the violence that can occur underground…but this is different. Weeks before the first murder was even committed, she’s had an unsettling feeling that something horrifying was lurking within the sprawling transportation system. Many nights when traveling alone, and walking along a quiet stretch of platform, she hears an eerie scraping sound in the distance, and has an overwhelming fear that someone – or something – is watching her. When the murders begin, and when a dark, faceless figure follows her home from the subway one night, she’s convinced that this is something far more insidious and frightening than mere random acts of violence. Not only can she feel the presence of an evil entity…she knows it’s just a matter of time before it comes after her.

Roswell Alien Visitors Guide

by Randy Luethye

Thank you for using the Roswell Alien Visitors Guide – over 880 locations!

I developed this guide after a visit to Roswell, New Mexico when I found little information on the internet regarding businesses, locations and contact information. In fact, many of my searches sent me to Roswell, Georgia.

After six weeks of research, map development and website building, I have the best information available regarding Roswell, New Mexico and the surrounding areas for tourism. Not only is there UFO and book/video research online, there are links to historic Billy the Kid locations that are all within 101 miles of Roswell.

Other nearby places like Carlsbad Caverns and The Bottomless Lakes make Roswell a great central point for a week’s worth of sightseeing! For more information, see the Day Trippin’ section of this guide.

While this guide covers many categories like hotels, restaurants, grocery, car rentals & pharmacies, it does not have all of the 880+ businesses listed on “Roswell Alien Visitors Guide” has been condensed to save on printing costs.

And Off We Went

by Serap Tegmen

The whole story began with a meet up… Then suddenly I wanted to go, to be there, to experience that journey. Along with this feeling, I felt as if my heart was about to leap out of my chest. It was like missing a lover. A sweet hastiness, excitement and flutters within my heart. I never figured out, if it was me who wanted to go, or if it was that place that drew me to it…

And then the story began. Us, thirteen women, put our lives on hold and hit the road. This story that I presumed was only a journey, ended up becoming the inner journey for each one of us.

This book that shares the soul of India, also shares the souls of these thirteen women. All the experiences, just like India, are all miracles within our lives. The real miracles, we ourselves create. Who we are, our culture, where we’re from or whatever our age, it doesn’t matter. As long as we can change and can show the courage needed to go after our dreams.

This book will touch your lives. Between sentences you will notice yourselves. In some cases, you may cry or enter deep thought and sometimes may burst out laughing. But there is one thing I’m sure of: You will all take a step towards your dreams, just like I did.

The Front Crawl – The Swimming Technique – How to Train Like a Professional

by Piotr J. Kober

The drills presented in this book are described in such a way that everybody can understand them, do them on their own and achieve better performance.

In order to facilitate learning, drills are divided into chapters in which they are grouped into ones developing similar skills or body parts. However, this division is not very strict, because numerous drills develop many things simultaneously – in such a case these drills are not repeated in subsequent chapters. That is why I encourage you to familiarize with all drills before you choose those you will find most useful:
– Body Position In The Water.
– Feeling The Water (Propellers).
– Work Of Legs.
– Work Of Arms Above The Water.
– Work Of Your Arms Under The Water.
– Breathing.
– Speed
– Helpful Turns And Starts
– Open Waters (Triathlon, Swimming Marathons)
– Endurance
As an interlude between chapters you will find quotations about swimming.

In this book you will find numerous drills which will help you learn more about the front crawl and improve the technique:
– propellers,
– feeling the water,
– a high elbow,
– swimming without any effort,
– breathing,
– open water swimming,
– controlling your speed,
– and more.

In the past it was generally believed that one has to be born with a good technique, but, as we know from the experience of many coaches, the technique is being developed during training. Nowadays, it is a good technique that gives advantage to the best contestants during competitions, when leaders have strength and endurance at the very similar level. It often happens that the difference between contestants during competitions amounts to 2 hundredths of a second. In such a case technical nuances are decisive, for instance the fact that during the finish a contestant is pushing his shoulder excessively forward, hits the wall with stretched fingers and gains a few centimeters in this way.

Nowadays the experience of the best coaches is available not only to the selected professionals – this knowledge may be also used by you. You can also get familiar with these drills. If you improve your technique, you will swim faster using the same or even less effort.

Better performance in swimming can be achieved by adaptation to the water environment. So as to achieve that, we strive to develop our strength, endurance and technique. Water is not a natural environment for a human being, but we are capable of adapting to it.

You’ve got an important decision to make. Do you want to discover how to swim better and faster?

Unlock your potential today by thinking about buying this incredible book.

Yoga for MMA

by Ervin Ruhe Jr.

Yoga For MMA – Takes ConcentrationIf you have not necessarily thought of the two concepts of Yoga and MMA (which is short for mixed martial arts) somehow having a connection, then you are likely not alone. Yoga is a spiritual, mental and physical discipline that has been around for thousands and thousands of years while MMA is a combat sport that has only recently gotten very popular. So how is it possible that these two things are related? Yoga can improve your MMA performance, especially in the ultra-important areas of core strength and flexibility. You know, while MMA is a full-contact sport to be sure, looks can be deceiving. One would think that Yoga–with its delicate movements and emphasis on breathing–is totally useless to the MMA fighter. After all, how can Yoga make said fighter more effective at disabling his opponent?! Yoga actually does this in two, extremely important ways: through building up core strength and also flexibility in the fighter.At first, lots of MMA fighters failed to realize that there was more to their combat sport than just kicking, punching and beating their opponents for the win. Then, as time wore on and as more knowledge developed and ideas were exchanged, more and more MMA fighters started to look at Yoga as a very real and powerful way to improve their fighting skills. Surely, Yoga couldn’t teach MMA fighters about gaining a victory over their opponents with greater effectiveness and deadliness…or could it?The Core of MMA: So just what is core strength, or, rather, what is the core, to begin with? The core is the part of your body that includes your abs and your back; it is basically your trunk or torso, and it is responsible for so many ultra-integral functions that you perform each and every day as a human being and also as an MMA fighter. In essence, your core can be regarded as the vital link between your upper and lower body. If the muscles in your core are weak, your MMA fighting will suffer because your legs and arms will be impaired. As a result, when you move–whether it is to put a submission move on an opponent or try to charge him to knock him off his feet–you will feel that your power and ability are simply drained. However, if your core is strong, you will notice that your stability, power and balance are top-notch, all of which are necessary when you want to neutralize your opponent. With my new Yoga for MMA ebook, I will show you precisely how using Yoga to build up this all-vital part of your body can really help you as you compete in the world of MMA. When people think about MMA fighters, they might wonder why they even have to worry about flexibility. Those people probably associate brute force, punching, kicking and hard takedowns with MMA fighters…and definitely not flexibility. After all, MMA is no ballet, or is it? It actually just so happens that, while MMA is certainly no ballet, the flexibility that ballerinas have is very useful to MMA fighters. Let’s say that an MMA fighter is about to be put into a submission hold or move by his opponent; if he possesses increased flexibility from Yoga practice, he is going to be able to swiftly and efficiently reverse or break the hold. If he does not possess this increased flexibility from Yoga, he is going to be a sitting duck and less likely to escape his opponent’s submission hold or move! Yoga improves a person’s flexibility, including MMA fighter’s.Breathing is good for you!As a Yoga instructor, I know all about how breathing is very important to Yoga. In fact, breathing properly is the basis of many poses and postures that you have to assume when practicing Yoga. From all my experience in this field, it is clear that proper breathing also instills a very high degree of of calmness and confidence in the individual. Then I suggest that that you buy my new Yoga for MMA ebook.

A Collection of Horse Training and Riding Tips, Secrets and Wisdom – Time-Tested Common Sense and Insights From Horse Training Experts (Volume 1)

by Charlie Hicks

A Collection of Horse Training Tips, Secrets and Wisdom – Time-Tested Common Sense and Insights From Horse Training Experts (Volume 1)

Over the past 7+ years I have been writing horse tip emails 3 – 4 times a week with almost no breaks. I have shared these horse tips freely with the thousands of folks that subscribe to my email horse tips at If you haven’t subscribed then I highly encourage you to do so by going to the website.

I get dozens of emails every month from folks who say they love the writings, the stories, and useful horse tips. Quite frankly, it has been these email responses that have kept me writing over the years. To know that thousands of horse lovers out there read, use and enjoy these tips is both a blessing and is somewhat daunting at the same time. It’s fun but also carries a significant responsibility to get things right. I would never purposely lead anyone down the wrong path.

Here’s the thing – I don’t claim, nor do I attempt to position myself, to be a “famous horse trainer or clinician”. But I do have the ability (a gift) to share what I have learned through experience and learning from other professional trainers – especially those who we feature in our videos. I enjoy taking what I have learned from them and sharing it with others through stories using a fun writing style.

Judging from the email responses I get it must be working!

Over the years I have come to respect many well-experienced horse trainers who have shared their expertise with us. There are so many little nuggets of horse training secrets in their videos and interviews that I have to keep going back and watching them just to remind me of what I learned in the past. If you take time to listen closely and watch their methods you can’t help but learn these valuable tips. I promise you, they will help you with your training and understanding of these magnificent animals.

I compare these writings and stories to the time when I would sit on the porch and listen to my father, grandfather and other folks that I respect share their wisdom with me. The pearls of wisdom and insight they had were invaluable. The lessons of life and common sense conveyed through them were priceless. I was blessed to have those opportunities.

Lord knows we could use a lot more common sense in today’s society!

One day in one of my emails I casually mentioned that I should put a “compendium of my horse tips” together and publish it. The response was overwhelming! I thought more about it and started working on it. It has now come to fruition.

This is Volume 1 of these “horse tips emails” and other notes. I have also included some emails I have written for some special occasions. The response to many of these has been huge. I have found that almost everyone responds to events and concerns that affect us all. Things that tug at the heart or that we should be thankful for are read and appreciated by most of my readers – even if the primary interest is about horses.

Over the years I’ve been able to share my thoughts and my heart through these stories and have been privileged to build a trust through them. Folks get to know me and like these writings. They have been able to evaluate me, some after years of reading my writings, for whom I am. Trust is hard to gain, especially over the Internet! I value your trust as you get to know me and hope I never do anything to compromise that trust.

Thanks for reading! Please enjoy this collection of thoughts and insights.

As I always say – enjoy your horsesâ?¦ but please do it safely.

Lord bless,

The Streak

by Drew Montgomery

Struggling just to compete after losing the two best players, a baseball team calls up a veteran past his prime and a young man barely out of school to fill in the empty roster spots. But what happens next is more than anyone could have hoped, as the youth invigorates not just the team, but the entire country, as he strives for a record that has held for over 70 years.

The Deadly Art of Iron Palm

by Lee Shilo

The Deadly Iron Palm is ultimately a (power slap) and derives much of its power from simultaneously combining two power generation techniques from the martial arts: torquing/rotation of the hips and the body drop.

These are the engines of the technique; the delivery system is the whipping motion of the arm. The objective is very high hand speed – this explains the similarity to the baseball throw. Most martial artists are familiar with hip rotation as a method of generating power from the large muscle groups of the body – the body drop seems less well known. The body drop is used in the short Deadly Iron Palm punch of Chinese martial arts. An explanation of the body drop is as follows.
