She is also leading a double life. By day, she’s a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team—especially their notorious goalie Luc Martineau.

Seduced by Moonlight

I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. Now there are those among us who whisper I am more. And who can blame them? I’ve awakened the dazzling magic that’s slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can’t figure out why.
My aunt, Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen’s Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe-blooded ones, the power surges like never before.
It all began with a chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of all of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they’re consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I.…

The Secrets of Axum

World War II started two months ago. And then fizzled out like a wet fuse, at least in Europe. An otherworldly army has invaded Earth. The Axis and the Allies must work together if they are to stop it.
Ernst Haufmann, Director of Ahnenerbe, the German Reich’s research into the occult thinks he knows a way to stop the invasion forces so Germany can once again look to its own plans for world domination.
The powers behind the invasion from Aerth believe so as well. They’ll do anything to find the ancient artifact Ernst seeks before Ernst does. And if they can’t have it, they’ll be just as happy to destroy it.
Individuals can make a difference in war as well. A small team of British infantry are on the other side of the gate in Aerth. They might have something to say to the inhabitants of that world about the invasion of ours.
Authors note: This is a serial series. To understand the story, it is best to start with book 1, The Dragons of Dunkirk.

**Recensie(s)**

Het eerste dat opvalt aan deze zelfhulpgids voor een voorspoedig en succesvol leven, is de vormgeving: het boek ziet er uit als een oud manuscript of document met getint papier, afbeeldingen van lakzegels en (tussen)kopjes in antiek aandoend handschrift. Toch is de inhoud allerminst oud of achterhaald. Positief denken vormt het geheim van een gelukkig leven. Door je gedachten te fixeren op positieve doelen en elke negatieve gedachte zoveel mogelijk achterwege te laten, genereer je synergie met je omgeving en komt ieder gesteld doel binnen handbereik. Dat gaat niet alleen op voor tastbare zaken als carrière en geld, maar ook voor gezondheid, relaties en levensgeluk in het algemeen. Het gekozen uitgangspunt impliceert echter dat je het aan jezelf te wijten hebt als je ongelukkig bent – een gegeven dat de schrijfster overigens onbekommerd de lezer voorhoudt. De schrijfster gaat mede uit van haar eigen ervaringen, beroept zich op talrijke beroemde denkers uit het verleden en ondersteunt haar betoog met vele citaten van succesvolle Amerikanen (onder wie bijvoorbeeld John Gray en Neal Donald Walsch). Van deze laatsten zijn achterin het boek portretjes en korte biografietjes opgenomen. Een zeer Amerikaanse zelfhulpgids voor een breed publiek in een aansprekende vormgeving.Redactie

The Secret Sharer and Other Stories

Joseph Conrad (1857–1924) spent much of his life at sea, and his experiences as a mariner deeply influenced his fiction. He set many of his finest stories aboard ship, where his characters — closely confined, enduring the rigors of the sea — might struggle more intensely with the psychological and moral issues that engaged him. This volume contains three of Conrad’s most powerful stories in this genre: ”Youth: A Narrative” (1898), ”Typhoon” (1902) and ”The Secret Sharer” (1910).
In each of these exciting tales, Conrad’s celebrated prose style, rich in the cadences of the sea, draws readers into a story that probes deeply, often suspensefully, into the mysteries of human character. Here are adventures of the sea and of the soul, related by a novelist considered one of the greatest writers in the language, reprinted from authoritative editions.

Secret Journey to Planet Serpo

On July 16, 1965, a massive alien spacecraft from the Zeta Reticuli star system landed at the Nevada test site north of Las Vegas. Following a plan set in motion by President Kennedy in 1962, the alien visitors known as the Ebens welcomed 12 astronaut-trained military personnel aboard their craft for the 10-month journey to their home planet, Serpo, 39 light-years away. In November 2005, former and current members of the Defense Intelligence Agency–directed by Kennedy to organize the Serpo exchange program–came forward to reveal the operation, including details from the 3,000-page debriefing of the 7 members of the Serpo team who returned after 13 years on the planet. Working with the DIA originators of the Serpo project and the diary kept by the expedition’s commanding officer, Len Kasten chronicles the complete journey of these cosmic pioneers, including their remarkable stories of life on an alien planet, superluminal space travel, and advanced knowledge of alien technologies. He reveals how the Ebens presented the U.S. with The Yellow Book –a complete history of the universe recorded holographically, allowing the reader to view actual scenes from pre-history to the present. He explains how the Ebens helped us reverse-engineer their antigravity spacecraft and develop technology to solve our planet-wide energy problems–knowledge still classified. Exposing the truth of human-alien interaction and interplanetary travel, Kasten reveals not only that the Ebens have returned to Earth eight times but also that our government continues to have an ongoing relationship with them–a relationship with the potential to advance the human race into the future.
**Recensie(s)**

Secret Journey to Planet Serpo was a mind-blower’ for me. A well-written, easy read, with numerous b&w illustrations and 27 colour plates, I think it will test your powers for discerning its credibility and make you begin to wonder what else of monumental importance is being withheld from the citizens of earth. * Alan Glassman, New Dawn, November 2013 * Len Kasten’s work is abundant ad infinitum with similar and truthful mind bending revelations known only to insiders; this is a monumental accomplishment. No Ufology’s library is complete without Secret Journey to Planet Serpo. The book is a masterpiece!! Rating: 5 Stars all the way. * Art, UFOs, and Supernatural Magazine, August 2013 * I cannot overemphasize the importance of this book. Kasten has cast the bright light of scholarship on a subject that cries for understanding and will change our world and everything that we have come to believe about ourselves and our place in the universe. The shocking truth is, we are not alone and have never been alone. * Robert O. Dean, Command Sgt. Major, U.S. Army, retired *
