It is the year 2497, and Earth is about to come under attack by its former inhabitants. For nearly five centuries humans have peacefully coexisted with the Neanderthal descendants who they banished to the planet Teconea. But now, the Neanderthals want their home world back. They have amassed a vast armada, well concealed in the ion storms of the Orion system until Danny Stryker, a Federation trader, stumbles upon their secret. Humankind's best hope of survival against the powerful Teconean Empire, the Federation Defense System, is nearly complete. A potent new energy generator in the shape of an obelisk is the last key element needed to complete the FDS. Stryker discovers that the gilded obelisk is lost in time. The only hope for survival is to send someone back to nineteenth century California to retrieve it before the Teconean invasion is launched. An aficionado of the Old West, Stryker eagerly volunteers to make the trip. Fitting into the nineteenth century has its challenges, and to make matters worse, Teconean spies have infiltrated deep into the ranks of the Space Corps. The race through time and space is on. www.BradAiken.com

The Testosterone Principles 2: Manhood and Other Stuff
You should know up front that his book might cause you to reevaluate your life. It might influence you to quit your job and switch careers. You might start to look at your relationships in a different way. Hell, it might even cause you to realize that you’re not in a good marriage. That’s not just hyperbole, either. T. C. Luoma’s popular weekly column—the best of which are featured here in The Testosterone Principles 2: Manhood and Other Stuff—has elicited exactly such potentially life-changing thoughts from the people who regularly read his work. He doesn’t preach or rap you on the knuckles. Instead, he shows you glimpses of what life—your life—could and maybe should look like. If you’ve got even a speck of self-awareness, you end up asking yourself, “Hey, is he talking about me?” His observations, liberally backed up with science and spiced up with quirky references to popular culture, serve as a guide to the weird, conflicted, often horribly flawed creature called man.
Describes the brutal 1993 torture, rape, and murder of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena, two innocent teenagers, whose bodies were discovered in a Houston park, and the gang of six young men who were arrested, tried, and convicted of the crime. Original.

Although e-commerce is already booming, it has not reached its full potential in terms of new, e cient and secur...
