The Spaniard Book Review:

They thought they could kill without impunity. He'll hunt them down. A legendary assassin driven mad with grief. When the loved ones of one of the most mystical assassins in the world, the Spaniard, is killed, he plans a terrible revenge on those responsible. Hugo Xavier, an ex-military from the Swedish special forces, is forced to leave his wife and newborn child in order to stop the maelstrom of destruction left by the Spaniard in his quest for revenge. At the same time, a brutal, global conglomerate sees an opportunity to take over one of their competitors when the Spaniard wreaks havoc. Hugo and his team must move with lightning speed in order to stop both the Spaniard and the conglomerate before more innocent lives are lost. Will Hugo be able to stop the Spaniard before it's too late? Fans of Mark Greaney, Jack Mars, Gregg Andrew Hurwitz, and Brad Taylor will love the Hugo Xavier thriller series. What readers are saying about The Spaniard ★★★★★ The action is near constant but still mystery, intrigue and suspense fill the plot like a well constructed sports car. The story launches itself like a sky rocket into your imagination. This novel is the third in what I hope will be a long continuing series. The characters which were originally introduced in the first book of the series Revenge continue to grow and develop. Like the other books in the series this story is set in today's world. But the action is the real star of this novel and it is first rate fare indeed. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys action packed adventure. This book is a significant departure from my normal reading material but I found myself unable to put it down until the end. This story is fit fare for anyone but there is violence that may not be suitable for children. ★★★★★ Like the previous 2 books in this series an excellent read so fast paced it's hard to keep up with the plot, the twists and turns leaves you wondering what is going to happen next, roll on the next book which I will be buying as soon as I see it. ★★★★★ Pablo Francisco Adnan Kosh, aka The Spaniard, is on the warpath, looking to kill all three doctors at Cabelo Medico because his daughter died when the doctors tried to save her. Then his wife took her own life. She just could not survive without her daughter. Hugo tried to stop The Spaniard when he heard silenced shots coming from a residence down the street. This story is so full of death and action it is almost non-stop. Highly recommended.

Technophobia! Book Review:

Techno-heaven or techno-hell? If you believe many scientists working in the emerging fields of twenty-first-century technology, the future is blissfully bright. Initially, human bodies will be perfected through genetic manipulation and the fusion of human and machine; later, human beings will completely shed the shackles of pain, disease, and even death, as human minds are downloaded into death-free robots whereby they can live forever in a heavenly "posthuman" existence. In this techno-utopian future, humanity will be saved by the godlike power of technology. If you believe the authors of science fiction, however, posthuman evolution marks the beginning of the end of human freedom, values, and identity. Our dark future will be dominated by mad scientists, rampaging robots, killer clones, and uncontrollable viruses. In this timely new book, Daniel Dinello examines "the dramatic conflict between the techno-utopia promised by real-world scientists and the techno-dystopia predicted by science fiction." Organized into chapters devoted to robotics, bionics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and other significant scientific advancements, this book summarizes the current state of each technology, while presenting corresponding reactions in science fiction. Dinello draws on a rich range of material, including films, television, books, and computer games, and argues that science fiction functions as a valuable corrective to technological domination, countering techno-hype and reflecting the "weaponized, religiously rationalized, profit-fueled" motives of such science. By imaging a disastrous future of posthuman techno-totalitarianism, science fiction encourages us to construct ways to contain new technology, and asks its audience perhaps the most important question of the twenty-first century: is technology out of control?

Death of a Hero Book Review:

One of the great World War I antiwar novels—honest, chilling, and brilliantly satirical Based on the author's experiences on the Western Front, Richard Aldington's first novel, Death of a Hero, finally joins the ranks of Penguin Classics. Our hero is George Winterbourne, who enlists in the British Expeditionary Army during the Great War and gets sent to France. After a rash of casualties leads to his promotion through the ranks, he grows increasingly cynical about the war and disillusioned by the hypocrisies of British society. Aldington's writing about Britain's ignorance of the tribulations of its soldiers is among the most biting ever published. Death of a Hero vividly evokes the morally degrading nature of combat as it rushes toward its astounding finish. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
