Galactar Book Review:

Following decades of war and the recent catastrophic loss of an entire planet, the Human Planetary Alliance is riven by internal disputes and rivalries. The military's old guard fights for power against those who see a chance to turn things around.After a series of hard-fought victories, Captain Carl Recker is becoming recognized as a man who gets results - a man who knows how to beat the Daklan. Unfortunately, enemies from his past would prefer to claim his successes as their own, and Recker finds himself caught between two factions within high command. Escape comes in the form of a mission, though it's nothing run-of-the-mill. Given command of a new heavy cruiser, Recker is sent to track down a missing Daklan fleet and recover the alien technology it was searching for. It's going to be tough and assistance comes in the form of a Daklan desolator, commanded by a larger-than-life officer who knows his missiles from his Terrus slugs.Deep within territory contested by the Meklon and Lavorix, Recker and his opposite number will need to work closely together. Trust is in short supply, while enemies are not. Faced with countless hostile aliens and their technology, Recker has his work cut out if he wants to stay on the right side of dead.And soon, he will draw the attention of the Lavorix empire breaker. The Galactar is coming, and against it, Recker stands no chance at all. Galactar is a traditional-style science-fiction action adventure and the third book in the Savage Stars series, following directly after events in Fractured Horizons. Expect space combat, ruthless aliens, mysterious tech and lots more.

Acting My Face Book Review:

Actor Anthony James has played killers, psychopaths, and other twisted characters throughout his Hollywood career. In the summer of 1967, James made his motion picture debut as the murderer in the Academy Award–winning Best Picture, In the Heat of the Night. His role in the 1992 Academy Award–winning Best Picture, Unforgiven, culminated a unique, twenty-eight year career. Behind his menacing and memorable face, however, is a thoughtful, gentle man, one who muses deeply on the nature of art and creativity and on the family ties that have sustained him. James’s Acting My Face renders Hollywood through the eyes and experience of an established character actor. James appeared on screen with such legendary stars as Clint Eastwood, Bette Davis, Gene Hackman, and Sidney Poitier, and in such classic television shows as Gunsmoke, The Big Valley, Starsky and Hutch, Charlie’s Angels, and The A-Team. Yet, it is his mother’s heroic story that captures his imagination. In an odyssey which in 1940 took her and her newly wedded husband from Greece to a small southern town in America where she bore her only child, James’s mother suffered the early death of her husband when James was only eight years old. In the blink of an eye, she went from grand hostess of her husband’s lavish parties to hotel maid. But like the lioness she was, she fought with great ferocity and outrageous will in her relentless devotion to James’s future. And so it was, that on an August morning in 1960, eighteen-year-old James and his mother took a train from South Carolina three thousand miles to Hollywood, California, to realize his dream of an acting career. They possessed only two hundred dollars, their courage, and an astonishing degree of naiveté. After his retirement in 1994, James and his mother moved to Arlington, Massachusetts, where he concentrated on his painting and poetry. His mother died in 2008 at the age of ninety-four, still a lioness protecting her beloved son. Acting My Face is an unusual memoir, one that explores the true nature of a working life in Hollywood and how aspirations and personal devotion are forged into a career.

Starweb Book Review:

'Who could have anticipated that the collective artificial intelligence that was the Starweb would turn against it's creators? Who would have thought artificial intelligence could create it's own bizarre religious cult?' Brilliant in concept and execution, the Starweb must have seemed to the Samarcians the perfect solution to their communication needs. However, the Starweb labelled itself the Guardian of God and set upon a war of genocide against its creators. Our story begins on March 15th 2045, the day our world was invaded and enslaved by a military dictatorship more viscous and evil than any regime ever seen here on Earth. Two years later, resistance fighters; inspired by Moss Pendragon and Paul Jenson; raised the ancient starship Excalibur and finally defeated the Dyason fleet in the Battle for Liberation. The Dyason home world had been ravaged by years of industrial waste and pollution. They had invaded Earth because their own planet was on the verge of environmental collapse. Moss, Jenson and their expeditionary team helped overthrow a cruel and corrupt Dyason Imperial military government. In response, the Dyason military raised their own super-starship, 'Dominator'; which took part in the second great Dyason space-battle. Dominator was lost in a bizarre space-warp at the end of the second Dyason War. The 'Dominator' found itself at 'Extremity Station, ' an outpost at the edges of our galaxy; built by ancient race of humanoids called the Samarcians. Equipped with an artificial intelligence, Extremity Station was designed to be self-sustaining, able to communicate with the rest of Samarcia via a network of other 'AI' computers. These super-quantum computers were able to communicate via the sub-ether and were collectively known as the 'Starweb'. Brilliant in concept and execution, the Starweb must have seemed to the Samarcians, the perfect solution to their communication needs. However, the Starweb turned against its creators, creating it's own bizarre religious cult. The Starweb labelled itself the Guardian of God and set upon a war of genocide against its creators. The Samarcians, unaware of what was happening until it was too late, were slaughtered in their millions! The Starweb having wiped out human races from virtually the entire galaxy, followed the Dominator back to Dyason and engaged the new three-race alliance. Thanks to the courage of the World Defence Force, Dyason Freedom Fighters, and the survivors of the Heligsion race, the Guardians of God were defeated in the last great space-battle of the Dyason Wars. It was a desperate struggle which eventually lead to the realisation that all humans must learn to live and work together if they are to defend themselves from the warped and evil Starweb. That all happened nearly five years ago; since then Earth has had to adjust to the fact that they are not the only human race in the universe. Humans are all part of a family, that includes the Dyason and Heligsion people. Who knows how many other human races, if any, have survived the acts of genocide carried out by the Starweb? There has been no sign of the Starweb since their defeat above Dyason, and perhaps humanity has become a little complacent-secure in the belief that the brand-new Three-World-Fleet of super battle-cruisers will defeat any new attack by the Guardians of God . However, whilst people have been getting on with their day-to-day lives, new evidence suggests that there is an ongoing attack by the Starweb. But this attack does not come in the form of starships and space-fighters; this attack is far more subtle than that! 'Tonight here at CNK news network, we prove to you that the enemy is within!'

"Knock Knock" Who's There? Book Review:

This is the story of a young man who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, seemingly destined to spend the rest of his life following the instruction of God's 'Spirit Directed Organisation'. He soon came to discover however, that things were not as they had first seemed. Following a patch of doubt and subsequent in-depth investigation into the religion, the young man began to realise that the things he had previously accepted without question no longer made sense. His eyes were opened to the various powerful methods that were, and still are being used to control the minds of the faith's followers. The story contained within these pages describes the author's life, from his upbringing as a Jehovah's Witness, his struggles along the way, and the challenges he faced as he tried to break free. His extensive research into the religion's history is also documented, including apparent accounts of questionable teachings and manipulative methodologies.

War and Peace Book Review:

Hailed as one of the greatest novels of all time and a classic of world literature, War and Peace is a tale of strivers in a world fraught with conflict, social and political change, and spiritual confusion, Tolstoy's magnificent work continues to entertain, enlighten, and inspire readers around the world. Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, 'War and Peace' is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory. Badly wounded at Austerlitz, he begins to discover the emptiness of everything to which he has devoted himself. His death scene is considered one of the greatest passages in Russian literature. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon's army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants, to soldiers and Napoleon himself. In War and Peace (1868-9), Tolstoy entwines grand themes—conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate.

Jesse James Book Review:

In this brilliant biography T. J. Stiles offers a new understanding of the legendary outlaw Jesse James. Although he has often been portrayed as a Robin Hood of the old west, in this ground-breaking work Stiles places James within the context of the bloody conflicts of the Civil War to reveal a much more complicated and significant figure. Raised in a fiercely pro-slavery household in bitterly divided Misssouri, at age sixteen James became a bushwhacker, one of the savage Confederate guerrillas that terrorized the border states. After the end of the war, James continued his campaign of robbery and murder into the brutal era of reconstruction, when his reckless daring, his partisan pronouncements, and his alliance with the sympathetic editor John Newman Edwards placed him squarely at the forefront of the former Confederates’ bid to recapture political power. With meticulous research and vivid accounts of the dramatic adventures of the famous gunman, T. J. Stiles shows how he resembles not the apolitical hero of legend, but rather a figure ready to use violence to command attention for a political cause—in many ways, a forerunner of the modern terrorist.

“In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind—and this is one of them.”—Arthur C. Clarke In a moving story of sacrifice and triumph, human scientists establish a relationship with intelligent lifeforms—the cheela—living on Dragon’s Egg, a neutron star where one Earth hour is equivalent to hundreds of their years. The cheela culturally evolve from savagery to the discovery of science, and for a brief time, men are their diligent teachers. Praise for Dragon’s Egg “Bob Forward writes in the tradition of Hal Clement’s Mission of Gravity and carries it a giant step (how else?) forward.”—Isaac Asimov “Dragon’s Egg is superb. I couldn’t have written it; it required too much real physics.”—Larry Niven “This is one for the real science-fiction fan.”—Frank Herbert “Robert L. Forward tells a good story and asks a profound question. If we run into a race of creatures who live a hundred years while we live an hour, what can they say to us or we to them?”—Freeman J.

Nineteen Eighty-Four Book Review:

"Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel", often published as "1984", is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English novelist George Orwell. It was published on 8 June 1949 by Secker & Warburg as Orwell's ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. Thematically, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" centres on the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviours within society. Orwell, himself a democratic socialist, modelled the authoritarian government in the novel after Stalinist Russia. More broadly, the novel examines the role of truth and facts within politics and the ways in which they are manipulated. The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, historical negationism, and propaganda. Great Britain, known as Airstrip One, has become a province of a totalitarian superstate named Oceania that is ruled by the Party who employ the Thought Police to persecute individuality and independent thinking. Big Brother, the leader of the Party, enjoys an intense cult of personality despite the fact that he may not even exist. The protagonist, Winston Smith, is a diligent and skillful rank-and-file worker and Outer Party member who secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion. He enters into a forbidden relationship with a colleague, Julia, and starts to remember what life was like before the Party came to power.

All Quiet on the Western Front Book Review:

Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

To the Lighthouse Book Review:

Described by Virginia Woolf herself as ‘easily the best of my books’, and by her husband Leonard as a ‘masterpiece’, To the Lighthouse, first published in 1927, is one of the milestones of Modernism. Set on the Isle of Skye, over a decade spanning the First World War, the narrative centres on the Ramsay family, and is framed by Mrs Ramsay’s promise to take a trip to the lighthouse the next day – a promise which isn’t to be fulfilled for a decade. Flowing from character to character and from year to year, the novel paints a moving portrait of love, loss and perception. Bearing all the hallmarks of Woolf’s prose, with her delicate handling of the complexities of human relationships, To the Lighthouse has earned its reputation – frequently appearing in lists of the best novels of the twentieth century, it has lost not an iota of brilliance.
