All about Armor, if you like big metal things, that blow other big metal things up then this is your book, also nice if you like to draw, but lack the details, this book and its images will help you draw these machines with an increased flare.

Big Pictures, with informative text & Maps detailing the allied Push thru Europe by the Armored Divisions. A great accessory to reading history on WWII.

96 pages. Large Format Book. Printed in the US of A.

Over sized Paperback book published March 2003, first printing.

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, moniotored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions of race, religon, and class still exsist, advances in tech have redfined life itself. Assuming one can afford the expensive proceedure, apersons conscious can now be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the Brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a blip on a screen...unlesss...(this is hard core cyberpunk, and a hardboiled detective tale all rolled into one.)

This book takes place in disc world, but could be read as a stand alone book for children. Terry Pratchett turns a few fairy tales on their ears, and with a little thought you can guess which one(s). Delightful story for lovers of Pratchett or Fantasy tales.

Review Date: 11/9/2011


Labeled an instant Spy Thriller classic Assassin of Secret's is being pulled from shelves as I type. Why? you may ask... Does it contain details that fall to close to the carefully guarded truth, that the masses must never learn of? Publisher Little , Brown and Co. has recalled all 6,500 copies on the grounds that the book contains passages lifted from as many as 13 other novels. I find this claim to be tissue thin, what editor worth their title would let a book be published that was Plagiarised to this degree? A simple computer check at the publisher with search strings would easily point up such copying. Me thinks this book touches a little to close to home for someone.

Either the editor at Little Brown & Co. has egg on his face or Q.R. Markham aka Quentin Rowan does either way, its a book I hope to dig deeper into and discover the truth myself.
