Book Description: This book tells the fascinating story of West Ham United Football Club during the First World War, charting the relationship between war and football by following the pursuits of West Ham from 1913/14 to 1918/19. In many ways, it was their success in wartime competitions that led to them being accepted into the Football League in 1919, paving the way for subsequent FA Cup and League success. As well as a football story, this book is about the impact of the war on Britain. It documents the social implications of war on Londoners and the social and political influence of football, the armed forces and civilians alike. Looking closely at the 13th Service Battalion, also known as the ‘West Ham Pals’, the book includes such players as George Kay, Ted Hufton, and their manager and coach, Syd King and Charlie Paynter respectively.

Book Description: The Fabled Quest Chronicles continues in Book Five of the epic fantasy adventure series—warrior mermaids, storm-summoning sirens, and sea serpents large enough to rise and block out the sun. They began their caravan in the Lands of Man. They traveled through Faë-Land Minor–the land of fairies and sprites, then across Faë-Land Major–the land of centaurs, elves, and goblins. They almost died in the Great Forest. Yet, none of those magical regions were as dangerous or vast as the Oceanus Omnis–the ocean realms ruled by merfolk, water fae, sirens, and sea monsters. Their year-long march, guided by the man called Traveler with his shape-shifting dog, has reached its final leg in their journey along Titan’s Trail. But what of the Four Kings and their dark allies who hunt them? And what dangers lurk beneath the near-bottomless depths of these ancient oceans? Siren Storms of Madness is Book 5 of the Fabled Quest Chronicles epic fantasy adventure!

Book Description: Two disparate worlds must work together if one is to survive. For millennia, humans have gone about their daily lives, blissfully unaware of the centuries-old conflict on another plane of existence. But these two places, these two peoples share a common thread, one that binds them together through the primeval prophecy of the Sun King. The lands of exotic Somnium have long been ravaged by war. For a blood-and conflict-filled century, two ancient armies have battled with no end in sight. The evil black hordes of the Shadow Elves have waged a constant campaign of death and destruction upon the Sun Elves. For over a hundred years, the forces of good have gone without the sweet taste of victory. The last, best hope for the Sun Elves lives on only in the promise of a thousand-year-old prophecy of a savior from another race, one that has long been absent from the ravaged lands of Somnium: humanity. In Auburn, California, a young man and his uncle are busy working on a project in the yard when their lives change dramatically. There, Brendan and Will discover a mysterious rock formation and the journey that awaits inside takes them further away from any known reality than their imaginations could possibly conceive. Could this young man or his uncle really be the fulfillment of the Sun King prophecy?

Book Description: An ancient and powerful alien civilization, all but destroyed by a celestial impact millennia ago. Now, after thousands of years, their plan to rebuild their race is nearing fruition, and it’s happening here, on Earth. In the near future, the world is running out of known deposits of fossil fuels. Dr. Amanda Johnson, a brilliant, beautiful, and extremely tall computer designer and programmer, has been recruited by DARPA to design a satellite based scanning system to locate any hidden carbon reserves on the planet. This system, based in Phoenix, Arizona and called AUGER, will also be re-tasked to continuously track all nuclear materials once the carbon scans are completed. Amanda’’s fraternal twin brother, Tyler Johnson, also brilliant and extremely tall, is a world traveling archaeologist, working with their adoptive parents Gordon and Ashley Jameson. Tyler is aware of Amanda’s carbon based scanner system, and asks her to use it to search for small carbon deposits that may lead to previously undiscovered archaeological sites for him to excavate. Amanda agrees, and, using Majel, a computer A.I. that she has developed, and that Tyler has, unknown to her at the time, modified, she finds several thousand potential sites, one of which is most unusual. A large cube shaped object buried in North Carolina. After informing her brother, he and their parents go to investigate. What they find will change their lives, and the world, forever. Amanda and Tyler embark on an incredible journey that will take them as far away as the surface of Mars, and even to other dimensions. Along the way they will encounter aliens, suicidal terrorists, nuclear weapons, and even rogue elements of their own military. Difficulties which pale in comparison when they discover that they, Amanda and Tyler Johnson, are themselves another world’s Legacy.

Book Description: This boxed set features the first three novels in the Daggers & Steele fantasy mystery series, collected together for the first time in one low-priced volume. For fans of Garrett P.I., Nikki Heat, and The Dresden Files. RED HOT STEELE (Daggers & Steele #1): Detective Jake Daggers likes his murder investigations the way he likes his women--straightforward, easy, and with a killer body. So when his older-than-dust partner throws his back out on a goblin raid, his captain assigns him a new running mate--a sexy young half-elf by the name of Shay Steele. It seems like a match made in Daggers' imagination, but Steele's no pushover. She's a powerful forensic psychic, and she's got sass oozing out of her boots. In a debut case teeming with fire mages, foundries, and a dead guy who's crispier than bacon, it's pretty clear Daggers isn't the only one getting a heaping helping of RED HOT STEELE. COLD HARD STEELE (Daggers & Steele #2): Detective Jake Daggers hates three things--mornings, walking, and naked guys. So when he and his sexy half-elf partner, Shay Steele, get called to a murder scene featuring a bare-bottomed doughy dude with an icy dagger sticking out of his chest, he's not amused. Even less happy? The Captain, when the lone murder turns into a frosty-bladed epidemic. In a case featuring frost mages, enchanted weaponry, and a jaded mystery writer, Daggers and Steele must race against the clock to discover who's delivering deadly doses of COLD HARD STEELE. TIME TO STEELE (Daggers & Steele #3): Detective Jake Daggers doesn't care for the unexpected, so he's perfectly content when he and his half-elf partner Shay Steele's next case seems to involve nothing more than a madman with a hammer. That's when a dude in a purple bathrobe shows up claiming to be from the future. Now the body count's rising, and Daggers is forced to enlist the self-professed time traveler's help in navigating uncharted waters rife with elven prostitutes, bratty gnomes, and undiscovered magics. Can Daggers and Steele catch the killer in time, or will they have to find TIME TO STEELE? Daggers & Steele books four through ten are now also available. Buy them today!
