Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It only took a moment for it all to vanish, one spark to set fire to the world. The fears and paranoia of a single man spread like a plague through all humanity, aided by the stem. Only the Pukes were immune, those who'd refused implantation. Civilization burned. But in the commune of Bannock, life continues, safe behind high valley walls. The town stands as the last bastion of life in a world swarming with the undead. It was to Bannock that Elder and his fellow Pukes ran, as the world collapsed around them. In Bannock, they found refuge, food and peace. But the chaos of the world without still threatens the safety within: wild bands of Skinnies stumble into the valley, seeking easy prey, and Drew Arrow, Bannock's billionaire benefactor, remains lost in the wilderness... Then, when a nugget of computer code hints at the possibility of ending the apocalypse, Elder and the others must consider the unimaginable: leaving the safety of Bannock's cloistered valley. ARROW is the second action-packed chapter in the continuing Zombpunk series, picking up six months after the conclusion of STEM. Would you risk it all to get back a little of what you lost?

Download or read book How Chance and Stupidity Have Changed History PDF or another Format written by Erik Durschmied and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2016-07-19 with total page 420 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the Trojan Horse to a photograph snapped in Vietnam, world history has been shaped as much by chance and error as by courage and heroism. Despite impossible odds, invincible armies fall in bitter defeat to weaker opponents. How and why does this happen? What decides the fate of battle? In this fascinating book, Erik Durschmied takes us through the major conflicts of history—from Agincourt to the Civil War, from Crimea to the Gulf War—and reveals how, in war, it is the improbable and the inconceivable that determine events. Writing with the style and flair that made him an award-winning war correspondent, Durschmied explores the fistful of nails that could have won Waterloo for Napoleon; the barrel of schnapps that proved disastrous for an Austrian emperor; and the three cigars that changes the course of Antietam; and many other instances when chance decided history’s path. Conflicts are decided by the caprice of weather, erroneous intelligence, unlikely heroism, strange coincidence, or individual incompetence—in short, by the unpredictable “hinge factor.” Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Download or read book Black Arrow PDF or another Format written by Robert Louis Stevenson and published by BEYOND BOOKS HUB. This book was released on 2021-01-01 with total page 277 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally serialized in a periodical of boys' adventure fiction, The Black Arrow is a swashbuckling portrait of a young man's journey to discover the heroism within himself. Young Dick Shelton, caught in the midst of England's War of the Roses, finds his loyalties torn between the guardian who will ultimately betray him and the leader of a secret fellowship, The Black Arrow. As Shelton is drawn deeper into this conspiracy, he must distinguish friend from foe and confront war, shipwreck, revenge, murder, and forbidden love, as England's crown threatens to topple around him. In fifteenth-century England, when his father's murderer is revealed to be his guardian, seventeen-year-old Richard Shelton joins the fellowship of the Black Arrow in avenging the death, rescuing the woman he loves, and participating in the struggle between the Yorks and Lancasters in the War of the Roses. “A story of love and adventure set in the Wars of the Roses” from the nineteenth-century Scottish author of Treasure Island(Adirondack Daily Enterprise). A spirited historical adventure set during the British Middle Ages, The Black Arrow was originally serialized in 1883. As England is torn apart by civil wars between the Houses of York and Lancaster, Richard “Dick” Shelton seeks justice for the murder of his father. Believing that the Black Arrow outlaws are responsible for his death, Dick embarks on a journey through Tunstall Forest, where a fugitive heiress will help him uncover a shocking betrayal, discover just where his loyalties lie, and steal his heart . . . “The plot moves at a snappy pace—there are outlaws, secret passages, battles, hairs-breadth escapes, storms at sea, and more as Richard battles to regain his rightful inheritance—to say nothing of the girl he loves.” —Vintage Novels Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850 – 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world. His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Cesare Pavese, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he "seemed to pick the right word upon the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins."
