Orbital Book Review:

"Explosive, ingenious and thought provoking. I was not able to put this novel down because I had to find out what happened next... Tom Clancy and Dan Brown stand aside." 5 Stars Readers' Favorite Taking military technologies that are on the drawing board today and putting them into the domain of space 15 years from now, 'Orbital' is a high-octane look at what the growing militarization of space could lead to in the all too near future. In 2034, a cataclysmic meteorite shower rains down on Saudi Arabia, destroying the world's largest oil processing facility and sending the price of oil into the stratosphere. But was it an act of God, or of man? At Cape Canaveral, Colonel Alicia Rodriguez takes over the fledgling US Space Force 615th Combat Operations Squadron's three X-37C remotely piloted spacecraft and their new mission: to determine whether a foreign State was behind the attack. At the Titov Main Test and Control Center in Moscow, Lieutenant General Yevgeny Bondarev is trying to balance the ambitions of his political masters with the demands of his Chief Scientist, the scarred, blind and emotionally disturbed Anastasia Grahkovsky. In Switzerland, Italian External Intelligence Agency deep-cover source, Roberta D'Antonia, is witness to a confrontation between Russia and Saudi Arabia on the sidelines of an OPEC meeting that could set the world on fire. And 1,200 miles above the earth, in the British Skylon D4 spacecraft, Flight Lieutenant 'Meany' Papastopolous finds his craft under fire as he gets too close to the closest guarded secret in space.

Okinawa Book Review:

"A fast-paced, action-packed political thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat." Readers' Favorite "A compelling amalgamation of sci-fi, military, political, and historical thriller." Publishers Weekly BookLife. In 1942 US Fighting Tigers squadron commander John Chen comes face to face with his enemy, Japanese pilot, Tadao Kato. Ninety years later, in 2033, their great grandchildren are serving on the same side as part of Operation Red Dove, the first joint naval exercises between China and Japan to mark the signing of a new Sino-Japanese mutual defense treaty. China is determined to forge a new empire in the East with Japan by its side. Its determination is about to be put to the test. IN SHANGHAI, the cyber warfare personnel of Advanced Persistent Threat Team 23 are about to fire the first shot in a new global war. ON OKINAWA, Defense Research Projects Agency drone pilot, 'Bunny' O'Hare prepares for the last field trial of the US Navy's next undersea stealth platform. AND IN HER PRIVATE RESIDENCE inside Tokyo's Akasaka Palace, Princess Mitsuko Naishinno prepares to fulfil her dying father's wish, and wrest back control of Japan from a government which has sold her country's soul to China. "This is fiction that predicts the geopolitical landscape of the future, a work that is as gripping as it is prophetic. Readers who enjoy politics and who are keen on the political ambitions of the Chinese will enjoy this novel. The conflict is huge and it reflects the realities that dominate contemporary politics. The novel is ingeniously plotted and the author's use of suspense makes it a page-turner. The shifts in the plotlines and the skillful use of subplots augment the satisfaction for readers. The prose is powerful, the characters rock-solid and the setting expertly achieved. The way that cyberwar is developed portrays what the next world war might look like. The story takes into account the political and technological realities of our time and projects us into a future filled with conflict and how it might play out. This novel is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking." Readers' Favorite.

Security and Stability in the New Space Age Book Review:

This book examines the drivers behind great power security competition in space to determine whether realistic strategic alternatives exist to further militarization. Space is an area of increasing economic and military competition. This book offers an analysis of actions and events indicative of a growing security dilemma in space, which is generating an intensifying arms race between the US, China, and Russia. It explores the dynamics behind a potential future war in space and investigates methods of preventing an arms race from an international relations theory and military-strategy standpoint. The book is divided into three parts: the first section offers a broad discussion of the applicability of international relations theory to current conditions in space; the second is a direct application of theory to the space environment to determine whether competition or cooperation is the optimal strategic choice; the third section focuses on testing the hypotheses against reality, by analyzing novel alternatives to three major categories of space systems. The volume concludes with a study of the practical limitations of applying a strategy centered on commercialization as a method of defusing the orbital security dilemma. This book will be of interest to students of space power, strategic studies, and international relations.

From the author of the Future War series, best-selling winner of Readers' Favorite 2020 Political Thriller of the year, and a Publishers' Weekly Star. Backed by Russian air power, Syria has begun an operation to push Turkish troops out of Northern Syria. Despite US efforts not to get dragged into the conflict, the US 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines 'Lava Dogs', find their hilltop combat outpost encircled and their Kurdish allies under siege. Further west, a Syrian armored advance across the border into Turkey pivots, threatening US troops at the Turkish and NATO air base of Incirlik. But will Syria be satisfied with reclaiming its northern border region, or is the operation just the first move in a bolder plan to regain lost territories? INSIDE KOBANI, Kurdish Women's Protection Unit sniper, Daryan Al-Kobani, is fighting for her people, her city and her mother and sister, hunting a Russian sniper who shoots to grievously wound his victims, not to kill.

GOLAN, This is the Future of War, asks a question few want to consider. What will happen if Iran acquires nuclear weapons in the next ten years? In true Future of War style, GOLAN explores the question through the eyes of front line participants on all sides, in a conflict set ten years into the future. Featuring military tech that is on the drawing boards today and characters you won't easily forget, GOLAN throws the reader straight into the center of a nuclear storm and doesn't ease up. In Buq'ata in the Golan Heights, Amal Azaria, Robotics Engineer with the Israeli Defense Research Directorate has designed an assassination microdrone that memorizes the face of its target, little knowing her drone will be firing the first shot in a new global war. In the air over Turkey, Gunnery Sergeant James Jensen of the 3rd Marines, 1st Battalion 'Lava Dogs' settles in for a short flight to Kuwait and some well earned liberty. Then learns the quadrotor carrying his squad is not headed for Kuwait at all. 150 miles southwest of the Russian Black Sea Fleet Base, Islamic Republic of Iran Captain Hossein Rostami - commander of Iran's newest and most capable guided missile destroyer - watches as a delicate cargo is loaded aboard his ship. At sea. In the dead of night. On Cyprus, court-martialed pilot, Karen 'Bunny' O'Hare, is visited in detention by a project lead from the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, who offers to get her out of the jug, and back in a pilot's seat ... with a catch. In Syria, Iranian Quds Force sniper, Abdolrasoul Delavari, takes on a mission to free hostages allegedly being used as 'human shields' by American troops in a UN buffer zone. But freeing them will require the longest shot of his life. Under the waves of the Mediterranean, Captain Binyamin Ben-Zvi brings his nuclear-armed Gal class submarine up to communications depth to report that after a long patrol via the Cape of Good Hope his submarine is in position. But in position for what? In Washington, the newly appointed Director of Cyber Security, Tonya Duprés, connects all the dots that lead to a frightening conclusion. Iran and Syria, backed by Russia, are planning an All Domain Attack - cyber, space, air, land and sea - against Israel. But as a combined Russian-Iranian fleet sails out of the Aegean and into the Mediterranean, and Syrian troops mass on the ceasefire line outside the Golan Heights, can anyone stop it?

The Confidence Men Book Review:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The Great Escape for the Great War: the astonishing true story of two World War I prisoners who pulled off one of the most ingenious escapes of all time. FINALIST FOR THE EDGAR® AWARD • ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The Washington Post, NPR • “Fox unspools Jones and Hill’s delightfully elaborate scheme in nail-biting episodes that advance like a narrative Rube Goldberg machine.”—The New York Times Book Review Imprisoned in a remote Turkish POW camp during World War I, having survived a two-month forced march and a terrifying shootout in the desert, two British officers, Harry Jones and Cedric Hill, join forces to bamboozle their iron-fisted captors. To stave off despair and boredom, Jones takes a handmade Ouija board and fakes elaborate séances for his fellow prisoners. Word gets around, and one day an Ottoman official approaches Jones with a query: Could Jones contact the spirit world to find a vast treasure rumored to be buried nearby? Jones, a trained lawyer, and Hill, a brilliant magician, use the Ouija board—and their keen understanding of the psychology of deception—to build a trap for their captors that will ultimately lead them to freedom. A gripping nonfiction thriller, The Confidence Men is the story of one of the only known con games played for a good cause—and of a profound but unlikely friendship. Had it not been for “the Great War,” Jones, the Oxford-educated son of a British lord, and Hill, a mechanic on an Australian sheep ranch, would never have met. But in pain, loneliness, hunger, and isolation, they formed a powerful emotional and intellectual alliance that saved both of their lives. Margalit Fox brings her “nose for interesting facts, the ability to construct a taut narrative arc, and a Dickens-level gift for concisely conveying personality” (Kathryn Schulz, New York) to this tale of psychological strategy that is rife with cunning, danger, and moments of high farce that rival anything in Catch-22.

Taking Tom Murray Home Book Review:

The winner of the inaugural Banjo Prize, Taking Tom Murray Home is a funny, moving, bittersweet Australian story of fires, families and the restorative power of community. Bankrupt dairy farmer Tom Murray decides he'd rather sell off his herd and burn down his own house than hand them over to the bank. But something goes tragically wrong, and Tom dies in the blaze. His wife, Dawn, doesn't want him to have died for nothing and decides to hold a funeral procession for Tom as a protest, driving 350 kilometres from Yardley in country Victoria to bury him in Melbourne where he was born. To make a bigger impact she agrees with some neighbours to put his coffin on a horse and cart and take it slow - real slow. But on the night of their departure, someone burns down the local bank. And as the motley funeral procession passes through Victoria, there are more mysterious arson attacks. Dawn has five days to get to Melbourne. Five days, five more towns, and a state ready to explode in flames ... Told with a laconic, deadpan wit, Taking Tom Murray Home is a timely, thought-provoking, heart-warming, quintessentially Australian story like no other. It's a novel about grief, pain, anger and loss, yes, but it's also about hope - and how community, friends and love trump pain and anger, every time. 'With characters you'll love and who will make you simultaneously laugh and cry, Slee weaves a bittersweet, hilarious and touching story that is sure to find its place as an Australian classic.' Better Reading 'An absolute ripper of a story ...with a madcap cast of characters including farmers, hippies and lots of cops, with moments so funny I had to put the book down to laugh.'

Orbital 2100 is a science fiction setting for Cepheus Engine and other Classic 2D6 SF RPGs. It has realistic (TL 9) feel that is set within our own solar system. The Earth is locked in a Cold War with the people of Luna. Both face off, 400,000 km apart, threatening mutual annihilation whilst they compete to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Older colonies such as Mars and Mercury are independent and caught up in this struggle for solar system supremacy. Spacecraft use nuclear thermal rockets and create gravity by spinning pods or centrifuges, this is spaceflight as envisaged today! In keeping with the near-future and hard-science fiction themes, role-playing campaigns focus on real people doing real jobs. The game has rules, technology and advice to allow scenarios based around deep space haulage, asteroid mining, salvage, rescue and exploration. Colour cover, with B&W interior.

Winning and Losing the Nuclear Peace Book Review:

The definitive guide to the history of nuclear arms control by a wise eavesdropper and masterful storyteller, Michael Krepon. The greatest unacknowledged diplomatic achievement of the Cold War was the absence of mushroom clouds. Deterrence alone was too dangerous to succeed; it needed arms control to prevent nuclear warfare. So, U.S. and Soviet leaders ventured into the unknown to devise guardrails for nuclear arms control and to treat the Bomb differently than other weapons. Against the odds, they succeeded. Nuclear weapons have not been used in warfare for three quarters of a century. This book is the first in-depth history of how the nuclear peace was won by complementing deterrence with reassurance, and then jeopardized by discarding arms control after the Cold War ended. Winning and Losing the Nuclear Peace tells a remarkable story of high-wire acts of diplomacy, close calls, dogged persistence, and extraordinary success. Michael Krepon brings to life the pitched battles between arms controllers and advocates of nuclear deterrence, the ironic twists and unexpected outcomes from Truman to Trump. What began with a ban on atmospheric testing and a nonproliferation treaty reached its apogee with treaties that mandated deep cuts and corralled "loose nukes" after the Soviet Union imploded. After the Cold War ended, much of this diplomatic accomplishment was cast aside in favor of freedom of action. The nuclear peace is now imperiled by no less than four nuclear-armed rivalries. Arms control needs to be revived and reimagined for Russia and China to prevent nuclear warfare. New guardrails have to be erected. Winning and Losing the Nuclear Peace is an engaging account of how the practice of arms control was built from scratch, how it was torn down, and how it can be rebuilt.

Transhumanizing War Book Review:

The concept of soldier enhancement often invokes images of dystopian futures populated with dehumanized military personnel. These futures serve as warnings in science fiction works, and yet the enhancement of soldiers' combat capability is almost as old as war itself. Today, soldier enhancement is the purpose of military training and the application of innovative technologies, but when does it begin to challenge individuals' very humanity? Bringing together the work of a diverse group of practitioners and academics, Transhumanizing War examines performance enhancement in the military from a wide range of perspectives. The book builds on two key premises: that rapid advances in science and technology are outstripping governments' and military organizations' capacity to adapt, and that this has put pressure on the connection between the military and the public. The contributors to this collection grapple with the implications of continued technological advancement and the possibility that innovative solutions to performance enhancement will risk further alienating the soldier from society. Navigating the fine line between technological promise and ethics, this volume presents a guide to responsible implementation in Canada and abroad. Offering unique insights into a debate on the bleeding edge of public discourse, Transhumanizing War considers the best ways to improve combat effectiveness while still preserving soldiers' humanity.

The Politics of Space Security Book Review:

The past five decades have witnessed often fierce international rivalry in space, but also surprising military restraint. Now, with an increasing number of countries capable of harming U.S. space assets, experts and officials have renewed a long-standing debate over the best route to space security. Some argue that space defenses will be needed to protect critical military and civilian satellites. Others argue that space should be a "sanctuary" from deployed weapons and military conflict, particularly given the worsening threat posed by orbital space debris. Moltz puts this debate into historical context by explaining the main trends in military space developments since Sputnik, their underlying causes, and the factors that are likely to influence their future course. This new edition provides analysis of the Obama administration's space policy and the rise of new actors, including China, India, and Iran. His conclusion offers a unique perspective on the mutual risks militaries face in space and the need for all countries to commit to interdependent, environmentally focused space security.

Understanding Space Strategy Book Review:

This book examines the rise of great power competition in space, including the relevant and practical space strategies for China, Russia, the United States, and other countries. The work discusses the concepts and writings of past strategists, such as Thucydides, Sun Tzu, and Clausewitz, in relation to warfare initiated in or extending into space. This analysis underscores why polities initiate war based upon an assessment of fear, honor, and interest, and explains why this will also be true of war in space. Based upon the timeless strategic writings of the past, the book uncovers the strategy of space warfare, along with the concepts of deterrence, dissuasion, and the inherent right of self-defense, and outlines strategies for great, medium, and emerging space powers. Additionally, it highlights changes needed to space strategy based upon the Law of Armed Conflict, norms of behavior, and Rules of Engagement. The work also examines advancements and emerging trends in the commercial space sector, as well as what these changes mean for the implementation of a practical space strategy. Given the rise of great power competition in space, this work presents a space strategy based upon historical experience. This book will be of much interest to students of space policy, strategic studies, and International Relations.
