The Dark of the Sun by Wilbur Smith The Congo. Situated at the heart of sub-Saharan Africa, it is a place where men die for diamonds. For love. And for the unholy pleasure of others... Bruce Curry is the leader of a mercenary band with the dubious support of three officers. His mission: To relieve a diamond-mining town cut off by the fighting and retrieve a priceless consignment of diamonds. Along the way, he meets a beautiful Belgian woman. Shermaine is a dream come true. But the rest of Curry's journey is about to become a living nightmare. Ranged against his ill-disciplined unit are bandits, guerrillas, and hostile tribes that infest the land. In a sinister atmosphere of omnipotent evil, Curry fights to stay alive--and protect Shermaine, his one true love. But to do so, he must face another, even deadlier enemy: one of his own men...

It is the 6th century of the common era. The vampire Saint-Germain, known in this time as Zangi-Ragozh, is peacefully doing business in Asia when the island of Krakatoa explodes in a massive volcanic eruption. Tidal waves swamp harbors hundreds of miles away, destroying trade ships and their cargoes; tons of ash and dirt are flung into the air. In the months to come, the world grows colder and darker as the massive volcanic cloud spreads across the globe, blocking sunlight. Sea trade is ravaged. Crops fail. Livestock, and then people, begin to starve. Disease spreads. Panic rises. As always in times of trouble, foreigners-and the vampire is always a foreigner-become targets. Fleeing toward the West, where he hopes to find safety and sanity, the vampire travels with a nomadic tribe led by Dukkai, a female shaman who soon becomes Zangi-Ragozh's lover. But Zangi-Ragozh's problems are far from over. His vampire nature is discovered by an enemy; he begins to starve; he is betrayed by one he cared deeply for; he loses everything, even his last sack of his native soil. With the True Death looming, Zangi-Ragozh tries to reach sanctuary in his ancient homeland. Transylvania.

On the final day of a counternarcotics mission, Special Forces operative Jake Tyler is searching for a downed pilot. It's the first in a series of life-altering events that ultimately puts him in the sights of one of the most powerful and deadly drug cartels in South America. It seems Jake's friend and military comrade, Haskell Delaney, has been playing both sides in their operations, and the duplicity has just caught up with him. With a bounty now on his own head, Jake has no choice but to go after the cartel kingpins before they can take him out. With a rogue and gutsy execution, and the help of two civilians, he pulls off an operation he believes will put an end to his plight. But the stakes are raised when Jake's new love, Callie Kane, is abducted and used to lure him for a final showdown with Adonis Valentin, the unimaginably evil drug lord who has, like Jake, eluded death. Now one of them is going to die, either at the hand of his adversary or from the siege of artillery converging from ground and air...as a massive interdiction closes in. The only way out is back through the jungle. Terror in the world takes many forms, much of it gratuitously bloody, but now in the oft forgotten and interminable drug war, it's become personal. From the tropical beaches and rainforests of Costa Rica, to the terrifying darkness of Colombia, IN THE DARK OF THE SUN smolders with the grit of a seasoned warrior on whose life it is based. While racing through a relentless stream of action and suspense, the story delves into the fine line between darkness and light...in friendship, in life, and in love. With the rapid-fire intensity found in Proof of Life and Tears of the Sun, the familiar elements of Traffic and Blackhawk Down, IN THE DARK OF THE SUN stands unique with its combination of eloquent beauty and raw reality.

Dear Reader, These are two of my classic historical romances, and I love both of them.When I heard that they were going to be re-published together, I was thrilled. Connor d'Arcy, Lord Earl of Iveagh, the hero of Dark of the Moon, is one of my favorite heroes ever. (I'm still a sucker for tall, dark, brooding, masterful men with a secret!) Together, he and Caitlyn O'Malley steam up the eighteenth-century Irish countryside in an epic romantic adventure that made my heart pound while I was writing it and, I hope, has the same effect on yours as you read it. Joss, from Desire in the Sun, is another great hero -- still masterful, still sinfully handsome -- but unlike Connor, afflicted with a lady who is determined to rule him. The fireworks generated by those two will leave you breathless. I've re-read them several times myself, just for fun (it's great to be able to go back and read and enjoy your own books, by the way) and, for me, they're still magical. I think you'll find them magical, too. Enjoy! With warmest wishes, Karen Robards

Fifteen billion years from now, Earth is a dying planet, its skies darkened by the ashes of burned-out galaxies, its molten core long cooled. The sunless planet is nearing the day of final gravitational collapse in the surrounding galaxy. Mutations and evolution have led to a great disparity of life-forms, while civilization has resorted to the primitive. Young Deyv of the Turtle Tribe knew nothing of his world's history or its fate. He lived only to track down the wretched Yawtl who had stolen his precious Soul Egg. Joined by other victims of the same thief - the feisty Vana and the plant-man Sloosh - the group sets off across a nightmare landscape of monster-haunted jungle and wetland. Their search leads them ultimately to the jeweled wasteland of the Shemibob, an ageless being from another star who knows Earth's end is near and holds the only key to escape.

Climate change has been a perplexing problem for years. In Dark Winter, author John L. Casey, a former White House national space policy advisor, NASA headquarters consultant, and space shuttle engineer tells the truth about ominous changes taking place in the climate and the Sun. Casey’s research into the Sun’s activity, which began almost a decade ago, resulted in discovery of a solar cycle that is now reversing from its global warming phase to that of dangerous global cooling for the next thirty years or more. This new cold climate will dramatically impact the world’s citizens. In Dark Winter, he provides evidence of the following: • The end of global warming • The beginning of a “solar hibernation,” a historic reduction in the energy output of the Sun • A long-term drop in Earth’s temperatures • The start of the next climate change to decades of dangerously cold weather • The high probability of record earthquakes and volcanic eruptions A sobering look at Earth’s future, Dark Winter predicts worldwide, crop- destroying cold; food shortages and riots in the United States and abroad; significant global loss of life; and social, political, and economic upheaval.

Through use of a lecture-slide format, this book presents an astrophysics detective story that chronicles Jerome Drexler's literature search for astronomical clues and evidence to unveil the nature of dark matter. There are a number of mysteries in astrophysics and cosmology that have remained unsolved for decades. What is dark matter? How exactly are stars created? In 1998, it was determined from supernova studies that the expansion of the Universe was accelerating, thereby creating the mystery of dark energy. Astrophysicists have developed mutually exclusive, single-phenomenon theories for each of these three phenomena, but not a unified theory for all three of them. The author's original goal was to identify dark matter, a decades-old mystery. In the process, he developed a new theory for dark matter and illuminated the nature of dark energy and the process of Sun formation. Since dark matter may have been instrumental in the creation of galaxies and stars, the author decided to test his new dark matter theory on the formation of the Sun. The results were very encouraging. He next sought a possible link between dark matter and the accelerating expansion of the Universe, which is attributed to the mysterious dark energy. Using his dark matter theory and the laws of physics, the author explained the accelerating expansion of the Universe in a plausible manner. This book chronicles the author's search for a unified astrophysical theory and how it finally evolved.

If scientists can’t touch the Sun, how do they know what it’s made of? And if we can’t see black holes, how can we be confident they exist? Gravitational physicist David Garfinkle and his brother, science fiction writer Richard Garfinkle, tackle these questions and more in Three Steps to the Universe, a tour through some of the most complex phenomena in the cosmos and an accessible exploration of how scientists acquire knowledge about the universe through observation, indirect detection, and theory. The authors begin by inviting readers to step away from the Earth and reconsider our Sun. What we can directly observe of this star is limited to its surface, but with the advent of telescopes and spectroscopy, scientists know more than ever about its physical characteristics, origins, and projected lifetime. From the Sun, the authors journey further out into space to explore black holes. The Garfinkle brothers explain that our understanding of these astronomical oddities began in theory, and growing mathematical and physical evidence has unexpectedly supported it. From black holes, the authors lead us further into the unknown, to the dark matter and energy that pervade our universe, where science teeters on the edge of theory and discovery. Returning from the depths of space, the final section of the book brings the reader back down to Earth for a final look at the practice of science, ending with a practical guide to discerning real science from pseudoscience among the cacophony of print and online scientific sources. Three Steps to the Universe will reward anyone interested in learning more about the universe around us and shows how scientists uncover its mysteries.
