New York Times bestselling author Simon Winchester looks at which way the wind blows in this exciting book about giant storms. Simon Winchester is an avid weather watcher. He’s scanned the skies in Oklahoma, waiting for the ominous “finger” of a tornado to touch the Earth. He’s hunkered down in Hong Kong when typhoon warning signals went up. He’s visited the world’s hottest and wettest places, reported on fierce whirlpools, and sailed around South Africa looking for freak winds and waves. He knows about the worst weather in the world. A master nonfiction storyteller, Winchester looks at how, when, where, and why hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, and tornadoes start brewing, how they build, and what happens when these giant storms hit. His lively narrative also includes an historical look at how we learned about weather systems and where we’re headed because of climate change. Stunning photographs illustrate the power of these giant storms.

In a World that Thrives on Fear, Have Faith Compared to all previous generations, we are safer, live longer, hurt less, and earn more. Yet we are more afraid than ever. Fear has slipped into our souls, leaving us on edge and constantly anxious. No longer a safe harbor, a source of strength, or a bastion for love, faith has fallen prey to a culture of fear. We face a defining moment. Will we cave to fear or rise in faith? Stephan Bauman, the former president of World Relief, has seen firsthand in some of the most difficult places in the world how it is possible to embrace love in the face of fear. Break Open the Sky is an invitation to live in authentic faith, free from fear and its debilitating symptoms. By embracing Jesus’s core yet counterintuitive teachings on truth, love, and risk, you can find freedom from the fear of the unknown, release from the uncertainty of the other, and liberation from the anxieties that hold you back. Are you ready to pursue a countercultural kingdom of grace and love rather than safety and comfort? If so, here is your guide for changing the atmosphere of your culture, church, and world. It will only happen as you take risks big enough to break open the sky.

Welcome to the universe of Galactic Dreams, where fairy tales are reimagined for a new age—the future. Years after an apocalyptic attack radiated planet Epiphany, pick-pocket Jakarta “Jak” Moon wants nothing more than to protect her younger brother—and survive. But when an old ally steals her last prized possession, Jak is out of options. Desperate, she breaks into the Tower, the home of Epiphany’s winged dictator, the Godmother, and ends up on a dangerous mission—to climb the enormous elevator and retrieve the last working transport to the giant space stations in orbit. If successful, the Godmother promises Jak one life-changing wish, a wish Jak is determined to win or die trying. Forced to team up with Gill Cuvier, the hunky crush she’s not sure she can trust, Jak ascends the elevator three times, each with a mission more dangerous than the last. Can Jak and Gill retrieve the treasures the Godmother demands, discover the secret of the Golden Eggs, and protect their planet from an evil, time-travelling scientist? Can they learn to trust the love they’ve found to escape the giant space station and certain death? Or is that all too much for a pick-pocket to ask? Galactic Dreams is a unique series of science-fiction novellas from Blue Zephyr Press featuring retellings of classic tales from different authors, all sharing the same universe, technology, and history. If you liked Marissa Meyers’ Lunar Chronicles or James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse, you’ll love Galactic Dreams.

First published in 2004, and now with a new introduction by the author and a foreword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., this book of natural history, environmentalism, and politics explores one of the Earth's last primeval places: Clayoquot Sound. Pitt-Brooke takes the reader on 12 journeys, one for each month of the year. Each journey covers the outstanding natural event of that season, such as whale-watching in April, shorebird migration in May, and the salmon spawn in October.
