Here in one volume are two screenplays by Kevin Smith, one of today’s most original filmmakers. Clerks was the independent film success story of 1994, winning the Prix de la Jeunesse and the International Critics Week Award at Cannes, and the Filmmakers’ Trophy at Sundance. Set in the everyday world of a New Jersey QuickStop and its adjacent video store, the film revolves around the obsessions, love lives, and friendships of the clerks. Janet Maslin of the New York Time called it “a buoyant comedy…and exuberant display of ingenuity,” and Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times raves, "Clerks is boisterous and irreverently funny…an example of what is best and most hopeful about the American independent film scene.
Lynda Robinson - Murder in The Place of Anubis
Who has dared to desecrate the sacred place of embalming with a murdererd corpse? Pharaoh Tutankhamun orders Lord Meren, his chief investigator, to find out quickly, before power-mad priests use the incident to undermine his royal authority.
Tim Powers - The Anubis Gates
Brendan Doyle is a twentieth-century English professor who travels back to 1810 London to attend a lecture given by English romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. This is a London filled with deformed clowns, organised beggar societies, insane homunculi and magic. When he is kidnapped by gypsies and consequently misses his return trip to 1983, the mild-mannered Doyle is forced to become a street-smart con man, escape artist, and swordsman in order to survive in the dark and treacherous London underworld. He defies bullets, black magic, murderous beggars, freezing waters, imprisonment in mutant-infested dungeons, poisoning, and even a plunge back to 1684. Coleridge himself and poet Lord Byron make appearances in the novel, which also features a poor tinkerer who creates genetic monsters and a werewolf that inhabits others' bodies when his latest becomes too hairy.
Elizabeth Massie - Power of Persuasion
When the female population begins to strut its Girl Power, it seems like a normal expression of feminism. After all, in spite of what a few males think, girls trying out for football doesn't signify life-threatening danger. Until the guys start acting like powerless pawns, and a few turn up dead.
John Harvey-Jones - Persuasion
Ever wondered what it’s like to get people to do whatever you want, whenever you want? We all know people who are incredibly persuasive. With effortless charm, they manage to somehow gain our trust, interest and support, time and time again. Is it a gift they are born with? Is it all an illusion? No, it’s the art of persuasion and you can learn it too. We all rely heavily on our persuasive powers every day - whether you are trying to get people to agree with you, influencing others to make a decision, asking for something, or attempting to bring about a change of behaviour or attitude in others, your success will depend on how persuasive you can be. Persuasion is key to personal and managerial success. Whether it's in your professional or your personal life, so much of your success in persuasion is down to a combination of self-assesment and situational assessment - being aware of what's going on inside you and being aware of what's happening around you. And the good news is that there are a set of golden behavioural rules that will boost your persuasive powers and get a positive result for you with increased regularity. Based on years of analysing the behaviours and mind-sets of the most persuasive people around, Persuasion gives you the magic formula to master the power of persuasion – the ultimate way to achieve success in work and life. "This book should be on every individuals bookshelf!" Sir John Harvey Jones A rare 'self-help' book - marvellously readable and fun. Hugely to be recommended. Jilly Cooper An indispensable handbook for all of us who need to get other people to do what we want. Sir Antony Jay, co-creator and writer of BBC's Yes Minister
Gil Adamson - The Outlander
On a moonlit night in 1903, a mysterious young woman flees alone across the Canadian wilderness, one quick step ahead of her pursuers. Mary Boulton is nineteen years old, half mad, and widowed – by her own hand. Tearing through the forest with dogs howling int he distance, she is desperate, her nerves burning, and she is certain of one thing only –that her every move is being traced. Two red-headed brothers, rifles across their backs, lurch close behind her: monstrous figures, identical in every way, with the predatory look of hyenas. She has murdered their brother, and their cold lust for vengeance is unswerving. As the widow scrambles to stay ahead of them, the burden of her existence becomes a battle in which the dangers of her own mind are more menacing than the dangers of the night. Along the way, the outlaw encounters a changing cast of misfits and eccentrics. Some, like the recluse known as „The Ridgerunner”, provide brief respite from her solitude; others, like the Reverend Bonnycastle, offer support only to reveal that they too have their own demons raging inside. As she is plunged further away from civilisation, her path from retribution to redemption slowly unfurls. A startling transformation of the classic western narrative, The Outlander is the haunting tale of one young woman’s deliberate journey deep into the wild.
Le Nguyen Binh - Nam Quoc Ngo - Ultra-Fast Fiber Lasers
Ultrashort pulses in mode-locked lasers are receiving focused attention from researchers looking to apply them in a variety of fields, from optical clock technology to measurements of the fundamental constants of nature and ultrahigh-speed optical communications. Ultrashort pulses are especially important for the next generation of ultrahigh-speed optical systems and networks operating at 100 Gbps per carrier. Ultra Fast Fiber Lasers: Principles and Applications with MATLAB® Models is a self-contained reference for engineers and others in the fields of applied photonics and optical communications. Covering both fundamentals and advanced research, this book includes both theoretical and experimental results. MATLAB files are included to provide a basic grounding in the simulation of the generation of short pulses and the propagation or circulation around nonlinear fiber rings. With its unique and extensive content, this volume: - Covers fundamental principles involved in the generation of ultrashort pulses employing fiber ring lasers, particularly those that incorporate active optical modulators of amplitude or phase types - Presents experimental techniques for the generation, detection, and characterization of ultrashort pulse sequences derived from several current schemes - Describes the multiplication of ultrashort pulse sequences using the Talbot diffraction effects in the time domain via the use of highly dispersive media - Discusses developments of multiple short pulses in the form of solitons binding together by phase states - Elucidates the generation of short pulse sequences and multiple wavelength channels from a single fiber laser The most practical short pulse sources are always found in the form of guided wave photonic structures. This minimizes problems with alignment and eases coupling into fiber transmission systems. In meeting these requirements, fiber ring lasers operating in active mode serve well as suitable ultrashort pulse sources. It is only a matter of time before scientists building on this research develop the practical and easy-to-use applications that will make ultrahigh-speed optical systems universally available.

Gerhard O. Forde - A More Radical Gospel
Gerhard O. Forde has stood at the forefront of Lutheran theology for most of his respected career. This new collection of essays and sermons -- many previously unpublished -- makes more widely available Forde's powerful theology vision.z The book itself aptly demonstrates Forde's deep Lutheran commitment. Here he argues that the most important task of theology is to serve the proclamation of the gospel as discerned on the basis of the doctrine of justification by grace along through faith alone. For Forde, the doctrine of justification is not one topic among other theological topics; rather, it is the criterion that guides "all" theology and ministry. Throughout the book Forde applies this truth to issues of eschatology, authoriy, atonement, and ecumenism. Also included are seven insightful sermons that model the Lutheran approach to proclamation. "A More Radical Gospel" will be of special interest to pastors, students, and general readers curious about the Lutheran perspective on Christian faith.

Lawrence Lessig - Free Culture
Lawrence Lessig, "the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era" (The New Yorker), is often called our leading cultural environmentalist. His focus is the ecosystem of creativity, the environment created around it by technology and law. To read Free Culture is to understand that the health of that ecosystem is in grave peril. While new technologies always lead to new laws, Lessig shows that never before have the big cultural monopolists drummed up such unease about these advances, especially the Internet, to shrink the public domain while using the same advances to control what we can and can't do with the culture all around us. What's at stake is our freedom -- freedom to create, freedom to build, and, ultimately, freedom to imagine.

Agatha Christie - Ten Little Indians
Their host was sudden death! Ten houseguests found themselves trapped on an island - the prey of a diabolical killer. The first guest was poisoned after dinner. The second just didn't wake up in the morning. When the old general was clubbed to death, they realized that the murderer was one of them. As their number grew smaller with each killing, their terror mounted. Was there no way out? Somehow, soon, the vicious killer would have to be caught - before he had the pleasure of announcing: "...and then there were none." And Then There Were None, considered by many of her fans to be Agatha Christie's best mystery novel, was originally published by Dodd, Mead & Company, Inc. Under the title Ten Little Indians, it was a famous long-run Broadway play, movie, and television drama. It has been newly filmed in Ireland by Tenlit Films, Ltd. and released in the United States by Seven Arts Pictures.
