The second edition of this hit martial arts travel memoir contains bonus author commentary and illustrations from Gawakoto's Bong Abad. When Marshal Carper broke up with his long-time girlfriend, he packed up his white belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and moved from rural Pennsylvania to Hilo, Hawaii to train at the BJ Penn MMA Academy. The Cauliflower Chronicles follow Carper's adventures and misadventures, both on the mat and around the island. He quickly learns that Hawaii is not the carefree paradise advertised in brochures and finds himself feeling like a foreigner in his own country. On the mat, he experiences Hawaiian fight culture from the inside, goes head to head with BJ Penn, and struggles to overcome injuries. Off the mat, he explores the Hawaiian Independence movement and the effects of colonization, battles with giant cockroaches and centipedes, meets a myriad of colorful locals, and travels the island in the bed of the Red Baron-a rusted 1986 Mazda pick-up truck. At times sad, shocking, and laugh out-loud funny, The Cauliflower Chronicles is a must-read for both sports fans and travel buffs, showing a side of mixed martial arts and Hawaii not available anywhere else.

Delving into the mind of this extraordinary woman, this book displays a myriad and variety of personal writings and letters, poems, science fiction short stories and observations on life, here in the USA and in Germany. Have you ever given any thought to how life seems to arrange itself like a battlefield? We struggle to get born and get that first life-giving breath, and it seems like every day from then on we continue to struggle for one reason or another on one battle front or another. If you have struggled to make your way into an elite, tightly-knit group, and struggled to establish some sort of acceptance, rank status, and respect from the members of that group, who would- -on an issue of morality, of basic right and wrong, of honor- -be willing to risk and jeopardize that which he or she has struggled so hard to obtain by speaking out on a clear and obvious wrong being committed? Examine the issues in this book and wonder if some of us will ever find the answer.

With a sly blend of fantasy, humor, and paranormal adventure, Kevin Hearne has established a reputation as the trickster god of action-packed mash-ups. His signature creation, Atticus O’Sullivan, is a folk hero for the twenty-first century, battling legendary beasts, shadowy mystics, and demonic demigods from around the world. Now this addictive eBook bundle brings together the first six novels of The Iron Druid Chronicles (with bonus novellas and short stories) in one supersized dose of genre-smashing mayhem: HOUNDED HEXED HAMMERED TRICKED TWO RAVENS AND ONE CROW (NOVELLA) TRAPPED HUNTED GRIMOIRE OF THE LAMB (NOVELLA) Also includes the short stories “Clan Rathskeller” and “Kaibab Unbound,” as well as a special preview of Kevin Hearne’s upcoming novel A Plague of Giants! Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

A snappy narrative voice.”—Library Journal, on Hounded “Outrageously fun.”—The Plain Dealer, on Hounded “Superb . . . plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Hounded “An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology . . . [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre.”—Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked

When the woman he loved was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer, science writer George Johnson embarked on a journey to learn everything he could about the disease and the people who dedicate their lives to understanding and combating it. What he discovered is a revolution under way—an explosion of new ideas about what cancer really is and where it comes from. In a provocative and intellectually vibrant exploration, he takes us on an adventure through the history and recent advances of cancer research that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the disease. Deftly excavating and illuminating decades of investigation and analysis, he reveals what we know and don’t know about cancer, showing why a cure remains such a slippery concept. We follow him as he combs through the realms of epidemiology, clinical trials, laboratory experiments, and scientific hypotheses—rooted in every discipline from evolutionary biology to game theory and physics. Cogently extracting fact from a towering canon of myth and hype, he describes tumors that evolve like alien creatures inside the body, paleo-oncologists who uncover petrified tumors clinging to the skeletons of dinosaurs and ancient human ancestors, and the surprising reversals in science’s comprehension of the causes of cancer, with the foods we eat and environmental toxins playing a lesser role. Perhaps most fascinating of all is how cancer borrows natural processes involved in the healing of a wound or the unfolding of a human embryo and turns them, jujitsu-like, against the body. Throughout his pursuit, Johnson clarifies the human experience of cancer with elegiac grace, bearing witness to the punishing gauntlet of consultations, surgeries, targeted therapies, and other treatments. He finds compassion, solace, and community among a vast network of patients and professionals committed to the fight and wrestles to comprehend the cruel randomness cancer metes out in his own family. For anyone whose life has been affected by cancer and has found themselves asking why?, this book provides a new understanding. In good company with the works of Atul Gawande, Siddhartha Mukherjee, and Abraham Verghese, The Cancer Chronicles is endlessly surprising and as radiant in its prose as it is authoritative in its eye-opening science.

From beyond the boundaries of infinity and the vastness of immortal consciousness, a prophecy had been conceived within the majestic expanse of the unbound universe. As a result, the Mystique have sprung from the womb of Mother Earth like the phoenix rising up from the still burning embers of “The Desert of Reality.” Upon the death of his beloved Cortessa, Demonno was literally drove beyond the brink of insanity, and throughout the ageless millenniums, he had taken it upon himself to single-handedly wipe his own species off the face of the planet. Violet, nearly the last living Mystique in existence, has finally come upon the end of her inevitable journey. Despite the destruction of her species, bitter betrayals, and malignant diversities, Violet has still managed to fulfill a prophecy that is perhaps as ancient as the universe herself. Violet must ultimately pass Samantha Jean Doven—the mothering host of a new breed of Mystique—the proverbial scepter to continue the self-sacrificing journey that she cannot continue. However, in the aftermath of Demonno’s reign of terror, he continues his contaminated trail of destruction and will stop at absolutely nothing to finish what he has started and destroy all Mystiques, along with anything or anyone, who is unfortunate enough to cross his path. Samantha must stop this insane beast of hatred and rage and save humankind not only from themselves but Demonno as well. Samantha must find the strength within to carry the Mystique and humankind alike into a new age and a new millennium, because a new time and existence is about to begin. What is life? Life is the decisions we choose to make woven among our destiny and, in the end, all is as it should be.

Yip Chi Chuan, a young martial and spiritual ascetic, must flee as the only home he has ever known, the ancient monastery of the Priests of K'un Lun, is destroyed by a newly ascendant extradimensional evil. Cast out and alone, Yip strikes out on a quest spanning the breadth of his home world of Ea'ae and into the greater macroverse beyond in an attempt to unseat an all-consuming Darkness rooted in his once vaunted order's distant past. Will Yip, the last of his kind to walk the wide world beyond his fallen sanctuary, succeed where his mighty brethren failed in ages past? Unfortunately for Yip, the answer appears all too clear... Without the guidance and teachings of his lineage, pursued by malevolent supernatural agents of the Cabal, unable to fully defend himself in a world steeped in magic, his quest may fail before it ever begins. Unfazed by his limitations, guided by his inner vision and direct experience of the energies of life, the radiant chi suffusing and enlivening the world all around, he is determined to triumph where others have faltered. To win forward, he will need help...but first he must survive. A blend of Western fantasy and Eastern martial arts and mysticism, the Chronicles of the Fists is an epic trilogy recounting Yip's adventures against all odds.
