Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case--but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida. A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be. What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident...and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.

X-Men meets Spy Kids in this instant New York Times bestseller! Here’s the first book in a new middle-grade fantasy/adventure series from the author of The Unwanteds. Fifteen years ago, eight supernatural criminals fled Estero City to make a new life in an isolated tropical hideout. Over time, seven of them disappeared without a trace, presumed captured or killed. And now, the remaining one has died. Left behind to fend for themselves are the criminals’ five children, each with superpowers of their own: Birdie can communicate with animals. Brix has athletic abilities and can heal quickly. Tenner can swim like a fish and can see in the dark and hear from a distance. Seven’s skin camouflages to match whatever is around him. Cabot hasn’t shown signs of any unusual power—yet. Then one day Birdie finds a map among her father’s things that leads to a secret stash. There is also a note: Go to Estero, find your mother, and give her the map. The five have lived their entire lives in isolation. What would it mean to follow the map to a strange world full of things they’ve only heard about, like cell phones, cars, and electricity? A world where, thanks to their parents, being supernatural is a crime?

“The Forgotten Self” is a product of a lifetime study of meditation, eastern philosophy and spiritual seeking. The author, a martial arts teacher and practitioner, found a need among his fellow students for a “how to” manual on the subject of meditation. This instructional paper became a chapter in this three-part book. “The Forgotten Self” deals with such topics as meditation, world religions, metaphysics and spirituality as it relates to today’s world. It is a guideline for the spiritual life-style as well as an instructional manual for unlocking those lost or unknown abilities latent in mankind as a species. Insightful and rewarding, The Forgotten Self” promises to leave the reader with a better understanding of reality, the universe and his part in it. Divided into three separate sections, this book leads the reader through a process of opening possibilities, providing answers for them and expanding awareness through practical “experiments”. The first part is “The Essence of Reality”. Here the author discusses such topics as modern society, individual and mass reality, and forgotten ancient wisdom. Asa Lennon believes there are abilities of mankind that have, in the whir of modern society, been anciently forgotten. He hopes to show the reader that man has reached the point in history where he teeters between existence and extinction –between civilization and chaos. It is the distancing of man from spirit that is at the heart of this problem. By returning to spirit, we can reclaim our heritage as keepers of the Earth and her treasures. The second part is “The Mystic Way –the Forgotten Path”. Here Lennon discusses the solutions to problems that plague mankind individually and en masse. This part outlines specific ways to enhance your life, society and the universe as products of the conscious awareness of the individual. Part three will open the reader’s awareness through the introduction of various spiritual and metaphysical concepts. Entitled “Remembering Yourself”, it not only provides mind-challenging possibilities, but actually describes experimental opportunities in the chapter 20 “The Human Laboratory”. Asa Lennon promises “the Forgotten Self” will embark the reader on a journey of increased awareness, spirituality and wonder as the forgotten self once again becomes known.

This book recountsthe horror of World War II on the eastern front, as seen through the eyes of a teenaged German soldier. At first an exciting adventure, young Guy Sajer's war becomes, as the German invasion falters in the icy vastness of the Ukraine, a simple, desperate struggle for survival against cold, hunger, and above all the terrifying Soviet artillery. As a member of the elite Gross Deutschland Division, he fought in all the great battles from Kursk to Kharkov. His German footsoldier's perspective makes The Forgotten Soldier a unique war memoir, the book that the Christian Science Monitor said "may well be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited." Now it has been handsomely republished as a hardcover containing fifty rare German combat photos of life and death at the eastern front. The photos of troops battling through snow, mud, burned villages, and rubble-strewn cities depict the hardships and destructiveness of war. Many are originally from the private collections of German soldiers and have never been published before. This volume is a deluxe edition of a true classic.
