The Vardo By Kimberly J. Smith
eBook (ePub): $2.99

More > "vardo" as it's also called) in Wailing Woods. Determined to save the child, she tracks down Laney, the girl who barely survived the same car wreck that took Callie's life three years earlier (and whose mother's recklessness caused the accident in the first place). A mysterious connection between the two girls allows Callie to lead Laney into the spooky forest to save the baby. Laney hopes the newborn will finally help her family heal, but when Callie's grieving parents end up with custody, emotional wounds are deepened. Callie pieces together the mystery connecting the baby, the fleeting psychic powers Laney has had since the accident, and the too-good-to-be-true new guy in town. Could there be a reason Callie hasn't moved on to whatever comes next? Could she be the only one capable of putting things right?< Less

My Falklands Diary By Stewart Cooper
eBook (ePub): $4.88

When I kept my diary during the Falkland Islands War in 1982 I did it as a kind of daily relief. A friend suggested to me that history needs to be recorded, by everyone at all levels, so here it is.... More > I was diagnosed as type 1 diabetic after the Falklands and it was attributed to trauma. I was grounded, unable to fly again, which does bother me at times. I was the second pilot of the Wessex Mk3 helicopter on HMS Antrim in the Royal Navy during the Falklands. The helicopter gained the nickname Humphrey, and she is now spending her time in the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. I was a sub-lieutenant, only twenty-seven; I had served 5 years as a junior rate, and was not your archetypal blond haired blue-eyed flyboy - in fact, far from it. Antrim Flight was my first front-line posting, and it was my choice of post, rather than being an anonymous member of a large squadron. We sailed from Gibraltar on 29th March on what I thought was going to be a fairly routine trip. How wrong I was!< Less

Russian Airships By Alastair Reid

This 350 page book, the very first to be written in English on the subject, tells the story of airship development in Russia. Staring with Kostovitch's design in 1880, it goes on to list the... More > Imperial Army's acquisitions which at the time made Russia the third most powerful aviation force in the world. The use of these airships in WW1 is discussed. After attempts to bring about a post-war revival, overflights by ‘Graf Zeppelin’ triggered a drive within the Soviet government to produce their own fleet of rigid airships - the ‘Lenin Squadron’. The reality of the 1930’s efforts by the State led DZS organisation fell short, but with the Nobile's help, DZS produced a number of airships, including the record-breaking USSR-V6. After this a gradual decline set in, culminating in the loss of the ‘Pobeda’ in 1947. The author reviews various design efforts of the 1970’s, together with modern concepts, before concluding with a more detailed look at the latest designs being produced by the RosAeroSystems company.< Less
