Stephen King hates to fly. Now he and coeditor Bev Vincent would like to share this fear of flying with you. Welcome to Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the things that can go horribly wrong when you´re suspended six miles in the air, hurtling through space at more than 500 mph and sealed up in a metal tube (like - gulp! - a coffin) with hundreds of strangers. All the ways your trip into the friendly skies can turn into a nightmare, including some we´ll bet you´ve never thought of before...but now you will the next time you walk down the jetway and place your fate in the hands of a total stranger. Featuring brand-new stories by Joe Hill and Stephen King as well as 14 classic tales and one poem from the likes of Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl, and Dan Simmons, Flight or Fright is, as King says, ´´ideal airplane reading, especially on stormy descents... Even if you are safe on the ground, you might want to buckle up nice and tight´´. Book a flight with this terrifying new anthology that will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination. 1. Language: English.

The grave is one wrong step away. Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity - forever. But how do you kill a killer who’s already long dead? Jeaniene Frost, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, lives with her husband and their very spoiled dog in Florida. Although not a vampire herself, she confesses to having pale skin, wearing a lot of black, and sleeping in late whenever possible. Aside from writing, she enjoys reading, poetry, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking, and traveling - by car. Airplanes, children, and cookbooks frighten her. 1. Language: English.

What would happen if a nuclear bomb was detonated near a cluster of oil refineries? From the president´s airplane window, he sees oil refineries lie as white-hot glowing rubble in what was the Texas City of Texas City. Cracking towers lie toppled on pipelines above the ground now carrying radiation contaminated energy toward all parts of the United States. The fires are being fed by row after row of massive storage tanks. One of the tanks explodes, sending the massive roof thousands of feet into the air and then the one next to it explodes because of the heat from the one that just exploded. As the president watches, the next one blows like another domino falling. As the pilot veers to escape the heat from the blast, a third explosion sends a shock wave, hitting the plane. General Maxwell will save the plane from the bomb aftermath. But as he brings the president back to Washington, the millrems gauge reading threatens disaster that they all may... 1.

ABOUT THE BOOK I learned many lessons from my time in Paris, but the most profound lesson I learned was to lead a life of passion. Every detail of life can become exceptional if you allow it to be so. You hold the key. When filled with laughter, friendship, art, intellectual endeavors and a certain verve life can be extraordinary. You should know, this book is a quick read. Before you can really settle in to figure out whether you disagree with it or love it, you´re at acknowledgments and find yourself thoroughly entertained. At a modest 146 pages, this work is more reminiscent of a lighthearted diary than a manual tightly packed with style tips. It is no surprise then that the book originated as a blog entry on The Daily Connoisseur, Jennifer L. Scott´s beauty and lifestyle blog. A crossover between a memoir, a humor column, and fly-on-the-wall reporting, Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris, successfully provides solutions on how to incorporate the best of Parisian wisdom into our daily lives. As a University of Southern California student with understanding parents (read: who agreed to pay for the trip) and a personal sense of adventure (read: a very limited grasp of the French language), Jennifer L. Scott decides to take a semester abroad to expand her cultural horizons beyond California´s laid-back attitude. Her time spent in Paris teaches her that a little formality in our daily lives can reignite pleasure in performing even the simplest of tasks (i.e. having meals at the same time every day or dressing appropriately for bed every night). MEET THE AUTHOR Evelyn Dumonte hails from a very tiny country of Estonia...you´ll find her traveling, reading, participating in general ´´debauchery´´, and making new friends. She has several degrees and some accolades but she´d much rather tell you about the time she smuggled a kitten on an airplane out of Russia.
On April 6, 1994, an airplane carrying the president of Rwanda Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira, who were both returning from Dares Salam, Tanzania, from a one-day regional summit of heads of state, was shot down on its descent into Kigali, Rwanda, by unknown assailants. Everyone aboard including the two president were killed. Shortly after this, nature woke history to record the quickest killing spree the world has ever seen. In fact, before the rest of the world could know what the matter was, close to a million Rwandans were slaughtered and their body disposed of with reckless abandon in mass graves in a carefully organized program of genocide during the hundred-day period from April 7, to mid-July, 1994. If you think Hitler and his Nazi killers were too fast on the trigger, then you know nothing about the Rwandan genocide. When the Hutu majority ethnic group started slaughtering the Tutsi minority tribe in the East African country of Rwanda, can you believe that the Hutus were not only slaughtering their life-long Tutsi neighbors but also slaughtering their Tutsi wife and half-Tutsi children as well? I want you to understand that the majority of Hutus who took part in this infamous genocide didn’t partake in it because they were witches or wizards or because they enjoy to slaughter people. Remember, no father can stand another man hitting his children, far less, to slaughter them. Most of these Hutu men and women were once decent people who lived peacefully with their life-long Tutsi neighbors. Many of them were considered kind hearted. Many of them were considered kind hearted by their Tutsi friends, coworkers, and neighbors before the war. In short, it was said that there were revered pastors, renowned doctors, and priests who took part in the infamous genocide. What then turns them to monsters overnight? I know this is the question on your mind right now, isn’t it? Well, in case you don’t know, the same thin... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta.

Milliions of people are struggling to find a way out of obesity without knowing they already own the most powerful weight loss device ever made. This simple book written by a simple man explains how mastering our thoughts can influence our behavior, which is responsible for the way we are. Approaching age 50, author Claude Viens was determined to give himself the gift of good health. This time, it had to be something else than those awful diets and exercise plans that had failed him multiple times. He was obsessed with the idea that it didn´t have to be hard or complicated. As the Wright brothers observed birds to create their first airplane that actually got off the ground, Claude observed healthy people to reproduce their way of thinking and slowly melt down those 80 pounds he was carrying for no good reason. From day one of this wonderful adventure, he have been jotting down his actions and results that caused the weight to go down and his health to skyrocket. By listening to this book, you will benefit from 35 years of research and reflections. Think of this work as a biography more than scientific and medical facts. As he put it: ´´I wish somebody would have written this book 35 years ago so I could have benefitted from all of this knowledge.´´ A word from the author: I can´t even begin to describe how great I feel now, and I want you to feel the same way. After a life of obesity, I now have the competence and credibility (even though I joke about not being qualified in the book) to pass this life-changing information onto you. Here is the deal: I want you to listen to this book and then get in touch with me to tell me how it´s going. I am easy to reach so please give me a shout. By taking action now, you have just made a friend and at the same time, so did I. Are you still reading this? Cool! Congratulations! Your success is just a step away! Talk to you soon!
