Die deutsche Kühlschiffsflotte war nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg lange Jahre eine der führenden der Welt. Die "Bananenjäger" mit ihrem yachtähnlichen Aussehen erregten in jedem Hafen besondere Aufmerksamkeit. Heute befinden sich Kühlschiffe im harten Wettbewerb mit den Containerlinien, wobei guter Service und kurze Transitzeiten den Reefern zumindest mittelfristig ein Fortbestehen garantieren. Vom Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts bis heute wurden knapp 400 dieser Schiffe von deutschen Reedereien betrieben. Die Autoren sind zwei ausgewiesene Schifffahrtsexperten, Karl-Heinz Hilbig und Karsten Kunibert Krüger-Kopiske, dessen neun bisher erschienenen Bücher vor allem, aber nicht nur, durch seine perfekten Zeichnungen auffielen. In diesem Buch stellen die Autoren jedes der über 400 deutschen Kühlschiffe mit technischen Daten, Lebensläufen, Zeichnungen und Fotos vor. Die Geschichte jeder deutschen Kühlschiffsreederei ist ebenso Bestandteil des Buches wie Texte zu wichtigen geschichtlichen, technischen und wirtschaftlichen Hintergründen, die zum Verständnis der Branche beitragen. Mehr als 50 teilweise unveröffentlichte Fotos und Gemäldereproduktionen runden das Werk ab.

Hadrian Marlowe, a man revered as a hero and despised as a murderer, chronicles his tale in the galaxy-spanning debut of the Sun Eater series, merging the best of space opera and epic fantasy. It was not his war. The galaxy remembers him as a hero: the man who burned every last alien Cielcin from the sky. They remember him as a monster: the devil who destroyed a sun, casually annihilating four billion human lives—even the Emperor himself—against Imperial orders. But Hadrian was not a hero. He was not a monster. He was not even a soldier. On the wrong planet, at the right time, for the best reasons, Hadrian Marlowe starts down a path that can only end in fire. He flees his father and a future as a torturer only to be left stranded on a strange, backwater world. Forced to fight as a gladiator and navigate the intrigues of a foreign planetary court, Hadrian must fight a war he did not start, for an Empire he does not love, against an enemy he will never understand.

When the Earth is threatened by a slowly expanding sun, mankind embarks upon a mission to send a mammoth Worldship to settle a new planet across the stars. The preternatural races step out of hiding to work with the humans to save what they can from their dying world. With the aid of the Fae, shape shifters, Vampires, and other creatures of supernatural lore, the Worldship, Leviathan, is complete one thousand years later. Lotteries are held and only twelve million souls are selected to make the ten thousand year journey to the new world aboard the multi-generational starship. The Worldship Files follow the cases of Knith Shade, a human law enforcement officer of the Enforcers Brigade aboard the Leviathan, five thousand years into her journey. As the Leviathan recovers from the battle brought to it by the Artifact on the alien vessel that pierced her hull, Knith finds herself embroiled in a plot to wrest control of the Worldship and the Ka'Infinitum by two rival sects of rebel magic users. All is not as it seems as Knith finds herself in another struggle to find the truth and do what is right.

“Readers who enjoyed The Strain Trilogy, by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, will find plenty to satisfy them here.”—San Francisco Book Review on Omega Days In the weeks following the Omega Virus outbreak, survivors form desperate clusters, uniting to defend against hordes of the walking dead. But they can only hide for so long… Father Xavier Church never wanted to be a leader. Nonetheless, he’s grown attached to his fellow survivors, and he won’t let anyone cause them harm—though he may be the one who inadvertently leads them to destruction… Ex-con Bill Carnes may crave freedom, but he still prefers sticking with the group rather than fleeing to Mexico with his former cellmate TC. Maybe he’s changing. Or maybe the look in TC’s eyes is more dangerous than the undead… EMT Rosa Escobedo gave up on hope after she watched the man she loved rise from the dead. But when a patient seems to start getting better, she can’t help but hope for a cure, even if it means risking her life… As the numbers of the dead swell, the living are running out of safe havens—especially when the biggest threats lie within their own ranks.

Dingoes proved a real menace there, so the family moved to Capella where they purchased the Paramount Theatre and a small cattle station before winning a land ballot off the failed Queensland British Food Corporation. He then married and moved to the Gold Coast then to Brunswick Heads and to another theatre. Television caused a recession in that so he went out as a deck hand on a trawler and cut timber before selling out and returning to the bush. He then took a position with British Petroleum being granted the whole of Cape as his territory. He then bought a produce agency and Stock Agency at Bowen in Queensland buying several cattle and sheep stations until a car accident killed his partner, so he sold out and bought charter boats, operating them from Brisbane to Thursday island, but after losing a deckhand retired from that and went back into business in Bowen.
