The mission is simple: Four kids must save what’s left of humanity by crossing a Husk-infested landscape to a secret government installation packed with volatile rocket fuel and state of the art security systems. Then, they must launch a satellite into space before a gigantic maelstrom smashes them to bloody splinters. If it were easy, it wouldn’t be Fortnite.

A groundbreaking account of how Britain became the base of operations for the exiled leaders of Europe in their desperate struggle to reclaim their continent from Hitler, from the New York Times bestselling author of Citizens of London and Those Angry Days When the Nazi blitzkrieg rolled over continental Europe in the early days of World War II, the city of London became a refuge for the governments and armed forces of six occupied nations who escaped there to continue the fight. So, too, did General Charles de Gaulle, the self-appointed representative of free France. As the only European democracy still holding out against Hitler, Britain became known to occupied countries as “Last Hope Island.” Getting there, one young emigré declared, was “like getting to heaven.” In this epic, character-driven narrative, acclaimed historian Lynne Olson takes us back to those perilous days when the British and their European guests joined forces to combat the mightiest military force in history. Here we meet the courageous King Haakon of Norway, whose distinctive “H7” monogram became a symbol of his country’s resistance to Nazi rule, and his fiery Dutch counterpart, Queen Wilhelmina, whose antifascist radio broadcasts rallied the spirits of her defeated people. Here, too, is the Earl of Suffolk, a swashbuckling British aristocrat whose rescue of two nuclear physicists from France helped make the Manhattan Project possible. Last Hope Island also recounts some of the Europeans’ heretofore unsung exploits that helped tilt the balance against the Axis: the crucial efforts of Polish pilots during the Battle of Britain; the vital role played by French and Polish code breakers in cracking the Germans’ reputedly indecipherable Enigma code; and the flood of top-secret intelligence about German operations—gathered by spies throughout occupied Europe—that helped ensure the success of the 1944 Allied invasion. A fascinating companion to Citizens of London, Olson’s bestselling chronicle of the Anglo-American alliance, Last Hope Island recalls with vivid humanity that brief moment in time when the peoples of Europe stood together in their effort to roll back the tide of conquest and restore order to a broken continent. Praise for Last Hope Island “In Last Hope Island [Lynne Olson] argues an arresting new thesis: that the people of occupied Europe and the expatriate leaders did far more for their own liberation than historians and the public alike recognize. . . . The scale of the organization she describes is breathtaking.”—The New York Times Book Review “Last Hope Island is a book to be welcomed, both for the past it recovers and also, quite simply, for being such a pleasant tome to read.”—The Washington Post “[A] pointed volume . . . [Olson] tells a great story and has a fine eye for character.”—The Boston Globe
Conducted in the mountains of Scotland, the Norwegians' training was
paramilitary in nature, focusing on commando work and on learning to survive for
weeks, if not months, in harsh, remote, wintry terrain akin to that of the agents'

Set A Course For Freedom is a story of young America on the threshold of revolution. Though the story itself is fictional it is woven into the fabric of actual historic events. The characters are meant to portray the differing personalities and attitudes of those living in that period and the conflicts and difficult choices they had to make. Christopher Hall, the twenty-one year old son of a Maryland fisherman, finds himself drawn into the conflict as his homeland drifts further and further away from Mother England. In this book, the first of a series, Christopher sets out in May of 1774 to find his missing brother-in-law who is a member of the Maryland Committee of Correspondence. Before he can succeed Christopher is captured by a press gang and is forced to serve in the British Navy. The following year, when war between England and the Colonies appears inevitable, Christopher realizes he cannot remain on the British ship. With the aid of a sympathetic shipmate he makes his escape but nearly loses his life in the process. He is saved by Captain Pierce, a blockade runner, and is nursed back to health by the captain’s family. Christopher accompanies Captain Pierce on his next run in an attempt to work his way home. However, a tragic encounter with a British warship forces Captain Pierce to put into port at Newport. There an old friend convinces him to arm his vessel and take up privateering. Christopher joins him in this endeavor which leads to the capture of a British mail packet and information that his brother-in-law, Thomas, is being held prisoner in Boston. They return to Squansett and with the help of local patriots an ingenious rescue is planned and executed. As Christopher is drawn into both adventure and romance he finds he must grapple with several conflicts - between his loyalty to the King and the land of his birth, between his family’s needs at home and the need to go search for his brother-in-law, and between his passions and his upbringing. Subsequent books will describe Christopher’s adventures in America’s infant navy and his growth as a naval officer. Although the U. S. Navy got off to a rather shaky start, it was in the period 1774 to 1812 that we were engaged in our War of Independence, the Quasi-War with France, the war with Tripoli and the second war with Great Britain, the War of 1812. It was this period that produced our first naval heroes and many of the naval traditions still celebrated today. It is my hope the reader will develop an increased appreciation for the people of that period, their struggles and their sacrifices. They set the course for freedom.

“The Black Barber of Barkerville,” as Wellington Delaney Moses was known, came to British Columbia from San Francisco, looking for a new home and a place of peace. He was among the first black people to arrive in B.C., hoping that the colony, with its Creole governor, James Douglas, would offer a more tolerant and welcoming frontier than had California; he was not disappointed. Moses was a remarkable figure in Victoria in its first years, opening a prosperous barbershop and becoming a popular man about town. But adventure still called. He headed north and found the happy end of his long journey among the gold miners of the Cariboo. He was known especially for his part in Judge Begbie’s famous case against the murderer James Barry. In this historical novel, Bill Gallaher describes Moses’s departure from the Caribbean island of his birth, the fearful realities of slavery and the terrors of working with the Underground Railroad in the United States, the early roots of colonial society and democracy in Victoria and, finally, Moses’s part in the always-spirited life along the creeks of Barkerville.

Return of the Light Prince Dear reader This novel contains some of the most profound and provocative ideas about a subject that many of us have already formed an opinion on. This in itself is the reason why this novel was kept by me for some time in an unpublished state and yet I remained unsure what to do, or the next step to take. I’d like to quickly explain the quandary I am experiencing but to understand you need to keep asking why, and never stop. Some questions of a factual nature could be ~ Why does the planet Earth travel on an orbital path at about eighteen and a half miles per second, or why does Mercury complete an orbit around our Sun in eighty eight days? Yes, it is true the answer to these questions above can partly be found in physics but this is clearly a statement of the obvious without any explanation as to why. However the most immediate responses can be found from those, whose mindset sits mainly, in one of three camps. That is the acceptance of creationism, evolutionary theory or a growing body of pragmatists who believe in their mind of doubts that there maybe another equally more plausible answer. Writing this book was not easy. The harder part though is breaking through the mindset of hundreds of years of work and research, including the special work completed by the naturalist Darwin. There is no shortage of support for a range of advocates of religious history and equally for the continuing and developing theory of evolution and herein lies the problem. This book does raise and explain another equally plausible reason. We will all go home tonight to the rest of our lives. But consider this, have you ever had an experience so confronting in nature, so rich in ideas that you have felt compelled to stop and listen and be measured by its effect. This for me has been the most exciting life experience of my time. The real impact of this work will break through via the medium of moving images rather than just the mere words in the book I have written. The reasons for this are the obvious ones. The mass audience this work lends itself to, will rationalize more on what they have seen given that most of us have a depth of interests that try to keep up with issues on a day to day basis. I hope you enjoy reading this work as much as I had the enjoyment in writing it. Howard Dimond Author

In the early years of the republic, the United States government negotiated with Indian nations because it could not afford protracted wars politically, militarily, or economically. Maureen Konkle argues that by depending on treaties, which rest on the equal standing of all signatories, Europeans in North America institutionalized a paradox: the very documents through which they sought to dispossess Native peoples in fact conceded Native autonomy. As the United States used coerced treaties to remove Native peoples from their lands, a group of Cherokee, Pequot, Ojibwe, Tuscarora, and Seneca writers spoke out. With history, polemic, and personal narrative these writers countered widespread misrepresentations about Native peoples' supposedly primitive nature, their inherent inability to form governments, and their impending disappearance. Furthermore, they contended that arguments about racial difference merely justified oppression and dispossession; deriding these arguments as willful attempts to evade the true meanings and implications of the treaties, the writers insisted on recognition of Native peoples' political autonomy and human equality. Konkle demonstrates that these struggles over the meaning of U.S.-Native treaties in the early nineteenth century led to the emergence of the first substantial body of Native writing in English and, as she shows, the effects of the struggle over the political status of Native peoples remain embedded in contemporary scholarship.
