The Coil is the most commonly used name for the multiverse, a place of wondrous and magnificent various realities. While most consider the Coil to be a home, it would better be called a battlefield. Harmony, discord, time, and fate all wage an endless war for control of existence, control of the weave.This book is the first of 45 Hub anthologies, books which describe the major positions of the Coil - your introduction to a massive fictional world which will pull you in take you places you will never be able to forget.Each Hub anthology describes one major position, one archetypal portion of the Coil. A combination of short story anthology and loosely interrelated narrative, a Hub anthology sets the tone for one of the many fractal aspects you can explore. This particular Hub reality is Hub 20, the version closest to our own. Discord, the Coil Worm, strives mightily to destroy everything within this hub - over four million different realities in this Hub alone. You Have Been Eaten is the gateway of discord into our world - a rabbit hole of corruption on a scale like you've never seen 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roger L. Jackson.

When it comes to warfare of the mind, the battlefield is an unweeded garden.... Dusan is a young outsider on Ora, a remote island inhabited by a telepathic species who actively avoid the humans who live far across the ocean. He is effectively "deaf" - unable to communicate mind to mind with his peers. In fact, his people regard him as little better than the feebleminded humans. Shunned and taunted by his own people, he leads a dreary existence...until a chance encounter with a human boy from across the sea changes everything. Together, Dusan and his newfound friend discover that their minds aren't nearly as feeble as they've been led to believe...and that they're the linchpins in a war between the Oran people and their past.

The Gettysburg Campaign and its culminating battle have generated more than their share of analysis and published works. In My Gettysburg, Civil War scholar and 26-year Gettysburg resident Mark Snell goes beyond the campaign itself to explore the culture of the battlefield.In this fascinating collection, Snell provides an intriguing interpretation of some neglected military aspects of the battle, such as a revisionist study of Judson Kilpatrick's decision to launch Farnsworth's Charge on the southern end of the Confederate line after Pickett's Charge and the role of Union logisticians in the Northern victory. In addition, he looks at a town east of Gettysburg York, Pennsylvania, a community that likewise suffered invasion in the summer of 1863, as well as at the role of Union and Confederate soldiers from the new state of West Virginia who fought against each other during the campaign.Further, this collection assesses Gettysburg's evolution as a historic place: an American shrine, an inspiration for popular music, a training ground for soldiers past and present, a mecca for reenactors, a combat zone between commercial developers and preservationists, and a home to its residents including the author, who gives us a personal view of what the battlefield and its surrounding community have come to mean to him.A retired Army officer and an established authority on the Civil War and military history, Snell amply demonstrates in this thought-provoking yet entertaining anthology that there remains much to learn even from such a well-studied subject as Gettysburg.The book is published by The Kent State University Press. 1.

It remains without question the most memorable and memorized speech in American history. On November 19, 1863, in 272 words delivered among the freshly dug graves of Union dead upon the country's bloodiest battlefield, Abraham Lincoln redefined American liberty and forever altered the course of the nation. This volume aims to place the Gettysburg Address in its full context, examining both its influences and impacts, and approaching it from a number of modern perspectives. Never before in one anthology has Lincoln's immortal address been viewed through such far-reaching lenses as emancipation, women's rights, immigrant rights, LGBT rights, and more. The scholarship included in this audiobook is new and exciting, with each of its 15 essays providing further meditation on major themes in the evolution of freedom and equality in America. Edited by filmmaker Sean Conant and with contributions from some of the country's leading scholars including Sean Wilentz, Craig L. Symonds, and Harold Holzer, this volume explores how in the century and a half since it was delivered, the Gettysburg Address has proven a seemingly inexhaustible source of somber reflection and soaring hope, and why its language continues to resonate with so many people seeking meaning for their own struggles and sacrifices. The full list of narrators includes: Dermot Mulroney, Neal McDonough, Jennifer Can Dyck, Tavia Gilbert, David Pittu, Robin Miles, Edoardo Ballerini, Jonathan Davis, Peter Ganim, Graeme Malcolm, Ellen Archer, Zach Gordon, and Stephen Lang.

This is an anthology edition of the Kinsmen Universe, which includes Silent Blade and Silver Shark, plus a new short story. Family is everything. Talent is power. And revenge is sweet. In a distant, future world Kinsmen - small powerful groups of genetically and technologically advanced families - control vast financial empires. They are their own country, their own rulers, and their only limits are other Kinsmen. The struggle for power is a bloody, full-contact sport: in business, on the battlefield...and sometimes in the bedroom. Silent Blade Old hatreds die hard. Old love dies harder. On the planet Rada, Meli Galdes' family is of minor rank, and were relying on her marriage to Celino, the razor-smart, ruthless leader of the powerful Carvanna empire. When he abruptly breaks their engagement, he ruins her family and guarantees that Meli will never marry, as no suitor will oppose the rich and influential Carvannas. But Meli has a rare, secret, lethal - and valuable - talent. As a melder of energy, she's capable of severing anything in her path. So she "leaves" her family and trains to become one of the best and most lethal of assassins, all the while covertly guarding her family's interests. Now she's ready to quit; but she has one more assignment. To kill the man who ruined her life. Silver Shark Claire Shannon is a killer...and her weapon is her mind. Born on a planet torn by war for over 300 years, Claire is a soldier: a psycher, with the ability to read, control, and destroy the minds of enemy psychers and to infiltrate the biological network where they battle to death. When Claire's faction loses the war, she barely escapes extermination from both sides, as her talent brands her as too dangerous to society. By so-deeply burying her ability that she avoids detection, Claire is instead depor 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samantha Cook.

A terrifying series of short poems by one of the world's leading playwrights, set to images of World War IIIn this singular book written during World War Two, Bertolt Brecht presents a devastating visual and lyrical attack on war under modern capitalism.He takes photographs from newspapers and popular magazines, and adds short lapidary verses to each in a unique attempt to understand the truth of war using mass media.Pictures of catastrophic bombings, propaganda portraits of leading Nazis, scenes of unbearable tragedy on the battlefield - all these images contribute to an anthology of horror, from which Brecht's perceptions are distilled in poems that are razor-sharp, angry and direct.The result is an outstanding literary memorial to World War Two and one of the most spontaneous, revealing and moving of Brecht's works.
For more than 2,000 years, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business or in relationships. Now, in this crisp, accessible new translation, John Minford brings this seminal work to life for today's readers. A lively, learned introduction, chronologies and suggested further reading are among the valuable apparatus included in this authoritative volume. Even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating - and more chilling - than ever.Little is known about Sun Tzu (544-496 B.C.) and his life during the Warring States period after the decline of the Zhou dysnasty, but his classic, The Art of War, has been one of the central works of Chinese literature for 2500 years.John Minford studied Chinese at Oxford and at the Australian National University and has taught in China, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. He edited (with Geremie Barme) Seeds of Fire: Chinese Voices of Conscience and (with Joseph S. M. Lau) Chinese Classical Literature: An Anthology of Translations. He has translated numerous works from the Chinese, including the last two volumes of the Penguin Classics edition of Cao Xueqin's eighteenth-century novel The Story of the Stone and the martial-arts fiction of the contemporary Hong Kong novelist Louis Cha.
