His stories include: Being chased by a killer whale or being attacked by a huge octopus. Finding large amounts of gold and silver on sunken wrecks. Locating huge hauls of copper worth millions and tankers full of crude oil. Diving with Great White Sharks. Battling extreme weather conditions including Tsunamis. Fishing for strange and valuable creatures and breaking records while doing it. Frightening near misses and exciting rescues. Historic shipwrecks. Having done all these things, George Bell lives to tell the tale and vividly recounts his life underwater in over 100 short stories. The old man of the sea indeed: it is a title I bear with some pride after sixty years diving and fishing. Some people count their fingers; I count my lives. With a life spent, much of it on or under the ocean waters, which lap the exotic coastlines of South Africa; one has to rely on a certain degree of luck. You can call me the sea gambler if you wish. It wouldn t be too far off the mark. Those far southern climes are notorious for their massive ocean swells. After all, South Africa s coastline is shadowed by the world s mightiest oceans. The Indian Ocean, all the way to Australia, and the Atlantic, all the way to the Americas can both be tempestuous and fickle too. It is also home to many millions of sea life species that don t always see eye to eye with intruders from the one seventh of the earth they re unfamiliar with. To these creatures man s habitat is indeed an island and a small and insignificant one at that. Living and working on the surface and just under the skin of these great earthly creatures we call the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, one faces dangers and a colourful kaleidoscope of events on a daily basis. The nemesis of many a horror story, the killer sharks, are just another part of that great ocean s tapestry. It was quite a life gauntlet for me to run, but I survived the blows largely unscathed. In fact I survived to tell the tale; indeed with many tales to tell. The credit for my initiative in setting them down must include my grandchildren with their constant appeals to Papa, tell us a story. The difficulty was how to set it out, and not to repeat myself. I didn t like them saying O, we ve heard that one . Should it be a biography, a fictional novel based on a true story? Might it not be far better for reader and writer alike to skip the boring mess-room bits and sticking to the point in telling a 101 tales. Let that be the only exaggeration, but you will get my drift. You will also be assured that in the telling, you will not only read of my experiences; you will share them with me. I want you to feel the whip of the wind, the aroma of the seas and fill your lungs with the smells of the upper and lower decks. So welcome aboard shipmates; enjoy a life that only the few are privileged to experience. I would like to thank my daughter Carolyn, who started transcribing the first stories from my very rough notes. Later, when I had moved to Spain, my good friend Sarah Crosby was able to complete the difficult task.

There are only few human beings who can adapt, survive and thrive in the coldest regions on earth. And below a certain temperature, death is inevitable. Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent much of his life exploring and working in conditions of extreme cold. The loss of many of his fingers to frostbite is a testament to the horrors man is exposed to at such perilous temperatures. With the many adventures he has led over the past 40 years, testing his limits of endurance to the maximum, he deservedly holds the title of 'the world's greatest explorer'. Despite our technological advances, the Arctic, the Antarctic and the highest mountains on earth, remain some of the most dangerous and unexplored areas of the world. This remarkable book reveals the chequered history of man's attempts to discover and understand these remote areas of the planet, from the early voyages of discovery of Cook, Ross, Weddell, Amundsen, Shackleton and Franklin to Sir Ranulph's own extraordinary feats; from his adventuring apprenticeship on the Greenland Ice Cap, to masterminding over the past five years the first crossing of the Antarctic during winter, where temperatures regularly plummeted to minus 92ºC. Both historically questioning and intensely personal, Cold is a celebration of a life dedicated to researching and exploring some of the most hostile and brutally cold places on earth.

Tony Orca, is a story about a killer whale pod migrating from the Bering Sea to Baja California and the behavior of their leader, later in the story named Tony Orca by a newspaper reporter. This is an environmental story describing the attack on the habitat of all marine life by the human being's reckless, wanton, selfish disregard for the environment. The story begins with a prologue describing the killer whale, and the description of Tony's birth. The story continues thirty years later, when Tony is well into middle age, at the beginning of a migration and describes the problems they encounter during their movement south along the coast of North America.Tony is the product of a triggered gene mutation called the quadraphoric gene mutation as described by Professor Joseph Salem, a Nobel Prize laureate. All male animal species except the human being are a carrier of this gene. It is triggered occasionally in every fourth child of the father. The child must be a male. Female offspring are not affected. The gene is triggered by extreme stress, causing the animal's size, intelligence, and viciousness to be far more advanced than others of the species. The Professor places the blame on the human race for the cause of the trigger, stating that with the meteoric rise in human population, the greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the industrial revolution, and the human being reckless, wanton, selfish disregard for the environment as the problem. Other species may follow. “Can you imagine a killer bee or a mosquito the size of an eagle?” he says.During his travels, Tony has several encounters with boats, destroying people and property. He attacks a whale-watching vessel, the Marine Life, chartered by the environmental group, the National Oceanographic Preservation Society (NOPS), lead by its president, retired admiral Jacob Jomb. The attack is repelled by the skill of the boat's captain, Enrico Pagniani. Tony flees the scene momentarily and then pursues the boat through the Golden Gate, but takes a wrong turn and ends up near Suisun Bay. There he destroys another fishing boat. The only survivor is our hero, Sam Spinne, who vows vengeance.While the authorities are discussing what to do about Tony, the NOPS blocks any action by the Coast Guard to destroy Tony.Sam visits the Admiral to try to convince him otherwise. He meets the Admiral's secretary, Leslie Smith, and eventually falls in love. The Admiral refuses to cooperate, blaming human behavior for Tony's aggressive demeanor. While all this is going on, Tony continues his mayhem as the pod moves south. Leslie introduces Sam to Professor Salem, another society member who helps Sam convince the authorities that the whale must be destroyed before he does any more harm. But it is too late. The whale pod is now in Mexican waters and the Mexican authorities will not cooperate with the Coast Guard. Sam now realizes that it is up to him to destroy Tony. He, Professor Salem, and others travel to the Baja on the Marine Life to encounter Tony. The Admiral also travels to the Baja to protect Tony. He vows to kill everyone on the Marine Life, even his beloved secretary, Leslie, who is now on Sam's side. As he attempts to destroy the Marine Life with a rifle grenade he says with tears, “Leslie my darling Leslie please forgive me for what I am about to do.” He aims at Sam who has Leslie at his side.Throughout all the commotion Tony attacks his closest target, the Admiral's boat. The Admiral's weapon misfires and the grenade hits Tony, blowing a hole in his back, the one whale he was there to protect. Tony is furious and desecrates the Admiral and his two boatmen. Leslie is hysterical. Tony then attacks the Marine Life and is eventually destroyed by Sam.In the epilogue, even though they had hoped that Tony did not father any fourth children who are sons, he did. Far up the gulf the son of Tony Orca is born.
