There are millions of practicing martial artists around the world in our globalised age, yet each is a member of schools separated by concepts such as ‘style’. The Martial Arts Delusion... More > presents a modern paradigm of combat and the martial arts based upon a Risk Model, to penetrate through traditional divides. It was once cited that true martial art was about discovering the causes of ignorance. Using scientific principles from such fields as Philosophy, Cybernetics, Psychology and Sociology, The Martial Arts Delusion outlines the factors which obscure truth, and how one may reach the truth of not only the martial arts, but any subject. The path to overcoming the causes of ignorance is essential to become a perfected martial artist, where one must overcome the product of inherited information from small local groups; The Martial Arts Delusion.< Less
G.O.D.TECH Marked By David John Jeffery
Hardcover: $24.44
Prints in 3-5 business days
All nations are ruled by the World Parliament which promotes the idea of uniting all civilisations so as to create a utopia of peace and prosperity. However, everything is not as idealistic as it... More > appears. This is a society controlled and monitored by micro-chipped implants created by a branch of the government called G.O.D.TECH. These cybernetic implants provide a means of mass-identification for the World Parliament and a service that allows all trade and communication between all peoples and races on the planet. Although these chip implants are mandatory by law, there are those who have refused to accept them. These people are automatically branded ‘Terrorists’, hunted down and forced to either accept chip implantation or face criminal charges. These so called Terrorists have a justified fear of being implanted, as many of them are aware that beneath the wholesome and trustworthy public face of G.O.D.TECH is a dark and unholy core with the ultimate aim of controlling all the peoples of the world.< Less

More > their warships and their failure in destroying the Hegemony's main base. In desperation, Admiral William Savage takes a third of the fleet to parts of the galaxy unknown to the Territories.

The Molecular Cafe By Group of the Authors
eBook (ePub): $3.99
This is a great collection of sf tales from the Soviet Union. Ilya Varshavsky is one of the most interesting Soviet, SF writers. His stories are paradoxical and fresh. "Wanderers and... More > Travelers" is the only short story published by the author. "Crabs on the Island" is a felicitous combination of an antiwar pamphlet, and a technical picture of the vast potentialities of cybernetics. "The Secret of Homer" is interesting and original, devoted to the ways of knowledge and the strange and contradictory fates of discoveries. Poleshchuk's heroes are gifted and forceful, and always follow the unbeaten track. "The Secret of Homer" is unusual for Soviet science fiction, and for that very reason, perhaps, has particularly special interest. "The Crew of the Mekong" is a lively and thrilling adventure story. "The Black Pillar" is about ideas of internationalism and friendship between peoples, and the authors' predilection for exciting subjects, their humour, and their quite exceptional scientific knowledge.< Less

More > brain transplanted into a war satellite. In the meantime he is pursued by a ghostly shadow lingering always just on the periphery of his consciousness. Just what, or who, could it be?

This novel makes use of the author’s very own language Atlantian (a.k.a. Loquia). (2) Spelling and punctuation are often used (meaningfully) altered. Enjoy this and other art-moldings of “Grammar”!< Less
