The first in a new trilogy of books by Matthew Underwood tells a story involving a young girl with a debilitating illness. The poor girl lives a boring life. But who was the strange man wearing a... More > dark robe, outside in the street one morning. Why did he vanish so quickly when she saw him? Why are children in towns on the outskirts of London being admitted to clinics and hospitals with a strange rash on their faces? Why all at the same time? What is the strange history connected with Roswell, New Mexico? Could it be the reason for the unusual Rash? The Rash is the first in the new Solution-Earth trilogy, set in the same story-line world as Glimpse and Time and disPLACEment. The Rash introduces some great new characters, including some who are not quite so native to Earth.< Less
The Longest Fall By Morgan L. Booth
Paperback: List Price: $22.00 $17.60 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Several thousand years after the Third Pantheraseer’s reign, the land has changed. Rising sea levels have swallowed entire continents, and, displaced by the water, cats have had to migrate to... More > higher ground, causing unrest between the snow leopards of the mountains and their intruding African cousins. Such conflict over several centuries has changed the snow leopards. Weakened by war, they no longer know how to love each other. Even the strongest form of love - that of a mother for her child - had become severely damaged, to the point where love has been pronounced extinct. This is the Longest Fall. The cats have fallen so far out of their faith that they’ve forgotten their love for each other and for Panthera. If they continue to fall, they may never be saved. That is why it is time for a new Pantheraseer to rise and teach the cats how to love again. But at the same time, she, too, must also learn how to feel and welcome love's warmth.< Less
The Custom of the Country By Edith Wharton
eBook (ePub): $1.64
Originally published in 1913, The Custom of the Country is a full length novel about the incessant rise of Undine Spragg, an attractive, vivacious woman of the American Mid-West who is fuelled by... More > ambition, and greed, combined with an all too obvious disregard for the feelings of anyone else except herself. Using marriage and divorce as the means to an end, Undine is at once a loathsome creature yet at the same time one with whom the reader can associate with or even root for. She is an archetype anti-heroine; perhaps a step removed or rather a continent displaced from say Becky Sharpe. While Wharton's plot is almost by necessity presented as a complex web revolving around Undine's exploits, it is at the same time secondary to the presentation of Undine's character. There's no sense of evolution in the way she is presented, it's clear from the first words, Mrs Spragg's impassioned and frankly rhetorical question, that Undine has a way about her.< Less
new forms and meditations for the pressurized libertine monk By j/j hastain
Paperback: $13.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
j/j hastain has conceived of a poetry that has created and is defined by its own language. A new language that disregards a traditional sense of time, that is indifferent to the historical. The... More > images and words that hastain use to form sentences to form lines to form language are carefully chosen to not only displace the notion of the logical, but also the reader’s sense of direction. One section in particular announces hastain’s aim: because the future for a hybrid would not necessarily be he or she but inherent bequeathing hastain is not only defining “the future for a hybrid” but also the future of the book you are about to interact with. And that definition is not gender specific. It does not revolve around gender or time like so much of language does in the current world. Instead that future is based on a gift, a donation from hastain to us. Consider what the gift is. An a-historical language.< Less
DuOPolis By S. Dorman

DuOPolis is speculative fiction about three young "gangs" living in the same territory in different times. These youths hail from circa Anno Domini 1769, 1900 A.D. and 2017 CE. By an... More > aberration in Time they meet unexpectedly in the 21st century neighborhood of FivePoints to engage with one another and untie the knot of Time. Inadvertent time-travelers, each group is trying to get "home" again. Both Time and Place are necessary. Place alone cannot make them a home. These displaced teenagers are not complex but savvy and often funny. The 2017 time travelers' reappearance have mystified adult friends whose various jobs play key roles in helping them. Apocalyptic allusions make this tale into biblical fan fiction. The story is a fun, often satirical, lively, and intricate time-traveler—gently and sometimes powerfully told. S. Dorman is author of FivePoints Akropolis, Gott'im's Monster 1808, The God's Cycle, and Fantastic Travelogue.< Less
Effect of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) with Soya oil & its Blends on Diesel Engine. By Rahul K. Shinde & Somnath R. koli
eBook (PDF): $8.99
NOx emissions can be reduced by lowering the cylinder temperatures. This can be done by three ways 1) Enriching the air fuel mixture 2) Lowering the compression ratio and retarding ignition timing... More > 3) reducing the amount of Oxygen in the cylinder that inhibits the combustion process. The first two methods reduce the efficiency of combustion and so the best way is to reduce the amount of Oxygen. This is done by recirculating some exhaust gas and mixing it into the engine inlet air. This process is known as Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The goal of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is to reduce the amount of NOx produced. The EGR valve recirculates gases into the intake stream. Exhaust gases have already combusted, so they do not burn again when they are recirculated. These gases displace some of the normal intake charge. This chemically slows and cools the combustion process by several hundred degrees thus reducing NOx formation.< Less
Glimpse By Matthew Underwood

In Glimpse, we follow the adventures of a young man who for years has had a strange ability to dream of future events, giving him the power to change the future. After growing up fearing his power... More > more than using it, he must step up when a dream warns him of an impending industrial revenge attach in London. Harry Walker, with the help of his new friend Jennifer, must find a way to identify the attacker and stop a disaster, before it’s too late. Hindered, rather than helped by the authorities, Harry and Jennifer fight against the clock, being forced apart, kidnapped and finally reunited, to work together to foil the attack. Glimpse is set in the same story-line world as ‘Time and disPLACEment’ and contains some story line links.< Less
Stochastic Processes in Mechanical Engineering By J.J.H. Brouwers
Paperback: $9.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
Stochastic or random vibrations occur in a variety of applications of mechanical engineering. Examples are: the dynamics of a vehicle on an irregular road surface; the variation in time of... More > thermodynamic variables in municipal waste incinerators due to fluctuations in heating value of the waste; the vibrations of an airplane flying through turbulence; the fluctuating wind loads acting on civil structures; the response of off-shore structures to random wave loading. Attention is focussed on problems of external noise. That is, models of mechanical engineering structures are considered where the source of random behavior comes from outside: e.g. a prescribed random force or a prescribed random displacement. The structures inhibit inertia, damping and restoring, linear and non-linear. Questions addressed are: how do these structures respond to random excitation, and how to quantify the random behavior of response variables in a manner that an engineer is able to make rational design decisions.< Less
