Sheriff Penny Miller of Flat Rock, Nevada, has always done her duty. On the first night of the zombie apocalypse, she swore an oath to protect her friends from the ravenous hordes. However, now that the virus is rapidly spreading to the rest of the country it has become clear that Miller and her friends, Scratch, Sheppard, and Rat, are winning battles but losing the war. And that’s just not good enough for Penny. Too many people have already died. Determined to stop the maniacs who have been funding the research that created the undead, and with the key to stopping the virus in hand, Miller and crew embark on a long and dangerous journey north. Their route cuts through the very heart of zombie occupied territory, but this time they are out to end the apocalypse once and for all. Unfortunately, the elite committee of government officials who control the Super Soldier program knows exactly where Miller and her friends are headed, and they are determined to capture or kill them at any cost. Sheriff Miller doesn’t stand a chance. Of course, lousy odds never stopped her before. She gives the order to move out. And that’s when all hell breaks loose. “Zombie thrillers loaded with sex and smarts.” —Jonathan Maberry, NY Times best-selling author “A good-looking, foul-mouthed female Sheriff, and she’s packin’. Four stars.” —SF Signal “The dialogue and narrative crackle. Great combination of action, gore, horror and humor.’ —Dana Fredsi, author of Plague Nation. “Penny Miller brings something new to the game, something that we’ve all been craving.” —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City “Defines laugh out loud funny.” —Bookish Brunette “Penny Miller brings something new to the game, something that we’ve all been craving.” —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City

Making its debut in 1935, the Browning High-Power was the world's most widely used military pistol for much of the 20th century. Military and law-enforcement agencies in more than 90 countries have issued the High-Power and it has seen combat in conflicts from World War II through to the 'War on Terror'. After conquering Belgium, Nazi Germany produced more than 300,000 High-Powers for use by the Waffen-SS, Fallschirmjäger and others, and after 1945 the High-Power became standard for most NATO-armed forces as well as scores of others. Chambered for the 9×19mm Luger cartridge, John Browning's High-Power improved on the classic Colt M1911 design, especially in its use of a far simpler takedown system. The pistol's innovative 13-round magazine, designed by Dieudonné Saive, staggered the cartridges for higher capacity without unduly increasing the grip size. During its 82-year production run at Fabrique Nationale (FN) in Belgium, the design evolved slightly, but a 2017 High-Power was still easily recognizable as a descendant of the original model. Packed with gripping material including detailed technical specifications, contemporary photographs and highly accurate artist's renditions, this title is a comprehensive and informative guide to the world's most iconic semi-automatic pistol.

This book provides one perspective on the operational activities associated with executing offensive counter-IED operations in Southern Afghanistan during 2008-2009. This period of the war experienced more IED attacks on US and coalition forces than another time during the war. The comments and observations made by the author, Colonel Ed Toy USA are drawn from his personal experience while serving as the Chief of Counter-IED operations in Regional Command-South and the Deputy Commander for Joint Task Force Paladin at Kandahar Airfield. COL Toys perspective is not necessarily the official viewpoint of the US military or the contributing nations to the International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) however much of the research and commentary are taken from actual events either drawn from the authors own personal experience or directly from US and ISAF forces conducting C-IED operations during this the bloodiest year of the Afghan war.

This groundbreaking work on the psychological and political roots of terrorism by award-winning writer Robin Morgan is updated with her new introduction covering the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the US. In a new afterword, "Letters from Ground Zero," Morgan offers her eyewitness account of the physical and emotional devastation caused by the assault on New York's World Trade Center and the global struggle in its aftermath. First published in 1989, The Demon Lover is now more timely than ever: a personal journey as well as a landmark work of investigative journalism. Traveling to the Middle East refugee camps, she gathered the first interviews with Palestinian women about their lives as women, and re-encountered the core connection between patriarchal societies and the inevitability of terrorism. In her final chapter, "Beyond Terror," Morgan sets forth a compelling vision of hope for the future.

Death is often welcome for soldiers who returned from Vietnam because it appears to be the only means of peace within. Knowing that each day could, and in all probability, will be his last, the soldier's thought process becomes distorted and his animalistic instincts take over and allow for total abandonment of inhibitions. These soldiers answered the nation's call and they paid the price for the freedoms we as a nation hold dear. They are also the ones who continue to pay the price for the combat experience and that part of us that died in country. These men suffer from PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and this is their story.
