Author: Georgio Konstandi
Publisher: Fast-Print Publishing
Greece in the not so distant future: a nation locked in the aftermath of austerity and economic standstill, whose people live a terrifying existence plagued by narcotics, abuse and suicide. The Greeks are mute with fatigue. George Andreou, their incumbent prime minister, sits idly by. Meanwhile, something far more sinister than the world is ready to witness is stirring beneath the frail crock plates of Greek society as the brutally oppressed ashes of the past begin to ignite once more. In the form of NEA, a highly sophisticated military faction of a million Russian-trained aggrieved and mentally disturbed Greek men, the people of the Hellenic Republic are being given a one-shot opportunity to escape. But all is not what it seems. As the winter sun shines, it says nothing. As the flowers of the northern countryside wilt under winter’s wrath, Sophia Iliadi is blossoming into a stunning woman in her decrepit village of Assiros. The past decade's jarring events mean she now struggles to establish a meaningful relationship with her mentally scarred mother. But her life is spun into another dimension of chaos when NEA sweeps through the north, taking control of her village in a day’s work. Forced to flee from one makeshift home to the next, her unexpected romance with an audacious NEA soldier leaves her giddy and overwhelmed. But desire's footpath is never smooth - and she must soon decide when a love is worth fighting for. The Greeks are embarking on one final crusade that could end all wars - but who is God siding with?

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

Having lost his great powers, how can he—or any of his kind—still make a difference in the world? The answer lies in the distant past, when savage beasts called proto-dragons ruled the skies. Through a mysterious artifact found near the heart of Northrend, Kalecgos witnesses this violent era and the shocking history of the original Aspects: Alexstrasza, Ysera, Malygos, Neltharion, and Nozdormu. In their most primitive forms, the future protectors of Azeroth must stand united against Galakrond, a bloodthirsty creature that threatens the existence of their race. But did these mere proto-dragons face such a horrific adversary alone, or did an outside force help them? Were they given the strength they would become legendary for… or did they earn it with blood? Kalecgos’s discoveries will change everything he knows about the events that led to the...DAWN OF THE ASPECTS
This novel by D. H. Lawrence was first published in 1928 and subsequently banned. Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy, with assistance from Pino Orioli; an unexpurgated edition could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. (A private edition was issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929.) The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an upper-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. Lady Chatterley's Lover was inspired by the long-standing affair between Frieda, Lawrence's German wife, and an Italian peasant who eventually became her third husband; Lawrence's struggle with sexual impotence; and the circumstances of his and Frieda's courtship and the early years of their marriage.

The Bone Keepers
Author: James LePore, Carlos Davis
Publisher: Fiction Studio Books
It is Rome, 1943. The war in Europe is at a tipping point, but the direction in which it will tip is terrifyingly unclear. For either side, one dramatic initiative could change everything. It is under these conditions that the Nazis discover a secret that has been maintained for nearly two millennia – that the bones of Christ have been guarded in a cave in Italy by a small, secret group. If the bones can be uncovered, Hitler will be able to use them to topple Christianity and turn the war irreversibly in his favor. The clues to the location of the bones or the people protecting them are scarce. MI-6 agent Ian Fleming and scholar J.R.R. Tolkien – working in tandem once again at the behest of the British government – must spearhead a hastily assembled team, including an alluring prostitute, to piece them together before the Nazis can turn humanity on its head. The conclusion of the stunning trilogy that began with the national bestseller NO DAWN FOR MEN and continued with GOD'S FORMULA, THE BONE KEEPERS is literary entertainment of the first order.
