            Journey to the Underground  World

            by Lin Carter

            The legends of a fabled land of the lost have floated for centuries around the bazaars of North Africa and the sand-surrounded oases of the vast Sahara. They tell of treasure caravans that have never returned, of weird monsters forgotten by time, of savage peoples surviving out of antiquity.

            Eric Carstairs had heard these tales but until he met Professor Potter he did not really believe them. But the famous paleontologist had the location of the entrance to the Underground World pinned down, and wanted only a man of courage to fly him there.

            Carstairs and Potter took the chance—and pierced the pit to Zanthodon, a world within the world, where cavemen and cave-beasts roamed side by side with dinosaur-monsters of millions of years ago.

            This is the first book in the Zanthodon Series, avalable from Wildside Press!

              Maureen is an English teacher, and she’s had a long day. All she wants is a relaxing night out with friends, a few beers, and maybe the chance to forget the troubles of her past: the gambling ex-husband and the daughter who’d thrown her life away sleeping with married men. But her night—and maybe her life—is thrown off track when she leaves the bar and a man approaches her in the parking lot as she unlocks her car.

                    Everyone's A Theologian

                    by RC Sproul

                     

                    Free Book of the Month

                      Reading the Bible is the one sure way we can get God's word into our lives each day. We can't just trust what we are told about the Bible, but ultimately must read and explore it for ourselves. We can be like those in Thessalonica who "received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so" (Acts 17:11).

                    In Everyone's a Theologian

                    Dr. Sproul takes on the Bible's teachings in a systematic fashion, using time-tested methods of interpretation, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy, reminding us of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next.

                        Former DOJ cybercrimes prosecutor Chris Bruen walks into a dark apartment in Amsterdam to confront a hacker known as Black Vector. The hacker has stolen the source code for the world’s most ubiquitous operating system, which powers everything from personal computers to the NSA’s data centers. This should have been a routine assignment for Bruen, but instead of obtaining a confession, Bruen finds the hacker’s dead body and uncovers a hidden flash drive that contains the code for a remarkably sophisticated computer virus known as Lurker.

                      Upon his return home to San Francisco, Bruen finds himself the target of a shadowy group of hackers who plan on unleashing Lurker, which will bring a major US city to its knees in seven days. Bruen doesn’t know why he’s the target, but the answers seem to lie somewhere in his troubled past. Suddenly, Bruen is framed as the planner of the cyberattack, making him the top suspect in an international manhunt. Bruen must stay ahead of the FBI and CIA in a race across Europe while he tries to decode the virus, find the hackers, and clear his name. With the lives of tens of thousands of people hanging in the balance, and his own life about to be destroyed, Bruen must go beyond the brink to stop the hackers.

                      Quote:

                       

                        In an ancient time of fear and superstition, she stood apart because of her unusual blue eyes. In a land of great stone cities and trackless wilderness, she sought her own unique path. But it was with the clan that accepted her—and in the heart of the magic man who saved her—that she found her ultimate destiny. Her name was Kwani. But legend would call her She Who Remembers...

                        With bonus material! This Kindle edition features extra content only found in the Collector’s Edition of The Mongoliad: Book One, including an illustrated character glossary, a Foreworld map, and Sinner, a prequel to the Mongoliad series.

                      The first novel to be released in The Foreworld Saga, The Mongoliad: Book One, is an epic-within-an-epic, taking place in 13th century. In it, a small band of warriors and mystics raise their swords to save Europe from a bloodthirsty Mongol invasion. Inspired by their leader (an elder of an order of warrior monks), they embark on a perilous journey and uncover the history of hidden knowledge and conflict among powerful secret societies that had been shaping world events for millennia.

                      But the saga reaches the modern world via a circuitous route. In the late 19th century, Sir Richard F. Burton, an expert on exotic languages and historical swordsmanship, is approached by a mysterious group of English martial arts aficionados about translating a collection of long-lost manuscripts. Burton dies before his work is finished, and his efforts were thought lost until recently rediscovered by a team of amateur archaeologists in the ruins of a mansion in Trieste, Italy. From this collection of arcana, the incredible tale of The Mongoliad was recreated.

                      Full of high adventure, unforgettable characters, and unflinching battle scenes, The Mongoliad ignites a dangerous quest where willpower and blades are tested and the scope of world-building is redefined.

                      A note on this edition: The Mongoliad began as a social media experiment, combining serial story-telling with a unique level of interaction between authors and audience during the creative process. Since its original iteration, The Mongoliad has been restructured, edited, and rewritten under the supervision of its authors to create a more cohesive reading experience and will be published as a trilogy of novels. This edition is the definitive edition and is the authors' preferred text. 

                       

                      • To Seduce an Earl by Lori Brighton (Regular Price: $3.99) [Genres: Fiction, Romance, Historical Romance]

                       

                      Quote:

                        For years, Alex Weston has plied his trade at Lavender Hills, an all-male brothel catering to London’s most fashionable women. His beauty and sexual prowess are legendary, yet his charmed life masks an ugly truth. Alex is a prisoner in a gilded cage, blackmailed into service and desiring only freedom—until the night she walks through his door…

                       

                      Grace Brisbane is desperate. Her dying mother needs medicine she cannot afford, and her dissolute stepbrother is gambling away what little money remains. Her only hope of saving her family is to marry the Earl of Rodrick, her brother’s wealthy best friend. There’s just one problem: Rodrick has no interest in virgins. To win him, Grace must learn the secrets of seduction. Secrets Alex knows all too well…

                       

                      It should be a simple business transaction. And yet with a single kiss, Grace ignites a passion unlike any Alex has ever known…and unlike any she could ever imagine. They are not free to love—but their hearts will accept nothing less.

                            Great Expectations | [Charles Dickens]

                            One of the most revered works in English literature, Great Expectations traces the coming of age of a young orphan, Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations into a man of maturity. From the chilling opening confrontation with an escaped convict to the grand but eerily disheveled estate of bitter old Miss Havisham, all is not what it seems in Dickens’ dark tale of false illusions and thwarted desire.

                             

                             

                             

                            Raised by a humble blacksmith, Pip is recruited by the wealthy Miss Havisham to be a companion to her ward, the cold but beautiful Estella. There, Pip learns to despise his rough origins as Estella torments him about his low prospects. When Pip is informed that an unknown benefactor expects to make him his heir, he sets off to London to realize his “great expectations.” But true gentleman stature, he will find, is a matter of character, not fortune.

                            The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson to Great Expectations | [David Timson]

                                       

                            David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature.

                             

                            In this, perhaps Dickens' most profound and personal novel, we are invited  to share in the sentimental education of Pip, the poor boy from the village forge who risks losing himself in snobbery and selfishness when
                            he mysteriously inherits a fortune. The story moves from the bleak Kentish marshes of Pip's childhood to a thrilling climax that mingles tragedy and triumph.
