CONNECTED is a speculative fiction thriller with touches of science and philosophy, which reached No.1 in Amazon UK's Bestseller lists for both Thrillers and Science Fiction within 5 days of release.
Beginning with the funeral of a renowned classical violinist in a sleepy rural hamlet in the Lake District, a former theoretical physicist tries to make sense of his brother's suicide. Across the country, a university student, enjoying the unexpected attentions of an enigmatic seductress, is disturbed when his best friend falls to his death from the thirteenth floor of a neighbouring campus tower block.
As each tries to unravel the mystery behind the apparent suicides, they are drawn into an obsessive search for a computer-generated fractal video sequence, with startling effects on human consciousness, and which might just pave the way for discovery of the ultimate Theory of Everything.
However, they are not the only ones to have seen the potential of this mind-altering video, and soon find themselves in a desperate race against time with gangsters from the shadowy worlds of sex, drugs, cyber-crime, and massively multi-player on-line gaming.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.
Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.
Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.
We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.
So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?
Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.

Shattering the Myths of Darwinism: A rational criticism of evolution theory
Richard Milton has been a science writer and journalist for more than forty years. In Shattering the Myths of Darwinism he re-examines Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection from a strictly rational standpoint, in the light of recent scientific research.
His independent reporting shows that much of the ‘scientific evidence’ for Darwinism that is taught in schools and colleges is deeply flawed - in some cases is no better than pseudoscience or junk science.
His investigation shows how Darwinism the scientific theory has been slowly replaced by Darwinism the religious dogma and how anyone who dares even to ask questions about the theory is stigmatised as a heretic who must be attacked and denigrated by the theocracy who have appointed themselves as guardians of the Darwinism paradigm.
In subject after subject, Milton shows how the modern theory of Darwinism has been erected on supposition, assertion, and assumption while the real scientific evidence for the theory is weak, circumstantial and inconclusive. Darwinism is exposed as resting on a foundation of argument, rather than on empirical evidence or experiment.
To most students, teachers, and even some scientists it will come as a surprise to learn that recent research into the age of the Earth has produced evidence that our planet could be much younger than had previously been thought: existing methods of geochronometry have been found to be deeply flawed and unreliable; the extent of genetic change by selection has been found experimentally to be limited; only a catastrophist model of development can account for important Earth structures and processes such as continental drift and most fossil-bearing rock formations - most of the Earth's surface in fact. These major discoveries have had profound consequences for the neo-Darwinist theory of evolution, yet few of them have found their way into the public domain, still less into school or university textbooks or museum displays.
Equally, many of the iconic symbols of Darwinism, quoted as though sacred texts, are now known to be just as flawed. The beak of the Galapagos finches provide no evidence for evolution or even natural selection, since there are not thirteen species of finch on the islands but just one. So-called ‘industrial melanism’ in the peppered moth, beloved of biology teachers and museum curators alike, is a figment of Darwinist imaginations. Fossil species such as ‘Lucy’ and her fellow Australopithecines have been restored in museum displays to look like upright walking humans while in fact they have been described by paleoanthropologists as arboreal apes.
This book sets out to make accessible, and put into context, these new discoveries to enable non-scientists to evaluate for themselves the status of the general theory of evolution and the new light cast on existing theories by the latest discoveries.
What the Press said about ‘Shattering the Myths of Darwinism’
"The world of science faces the biggest challenge yet to one of its most basic beliefs: Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. An authoritative compilation of scientific findings." Neville Hodgkinson, The Sunday Times
“Richard Milton's book . . . could shake the ‘religion’ of evolution as much as ‘Honest to God’ shook popular Christianity 30 years ago." Leader Column, The Times
"Milton . . . utters some important warnings. We ignore them at our peril."
Julia Neuberger, The Sunday Times
"In his popular book, journalist Richard Milton shows Darwinism as a crumbling edifice, supported only by a conservative scientific establishment." Matthew Cockerill, The Daily Telegraph

A lot has been written about the mind and developing mental strength for greater success. However, the modern-day challenges drain away your energy. Developing a healthy mindset entails consistent practice over prolonged periods. It requires a sense of practicality and discipline that is all too often forgotten and neglected.
If you seriously commit to developing your mindset so that you can focus on what you want over the long-term, then the results will be life-changing. To do so, you will need to learn to rely on yourself.
As the great philosopher, J. Krishnamurti stated, “A theory based on another man’s experience in matters of the psyche or of an inward life has no meaning at all…. You have to let it go because you have to stand alone.”
You must overcome the Paradox of Poverty amidst plenty. When you discover your inner riches, you can wholly manifest the dream of a perfect life. Wealth, riches, power, influence, vibrant health, freedom from disease and sickness, anything and everything is effortlessly possible only if you allow your brain to achieve the goals, relationships you desire in life, making even the impossible possible because you deserve the BEST.
You will be shocked to know that a part of your mind was working against you, wrecking your plans, and acting as an invisible obstacle to achieving your goal while sabotaging all your painstaking efforts.
Just as bookish knowledge of swimming does not make you a swimmer, it’s only by jumping into water that you learn to swim. Similarly, listening to lectures on brain health will not improve your brain health. Direct personal perceptions and effort are worthier than several hours of listening to second-hand knowledge.
However busy your life schedule maybe, if qualitative life is what you seek, then you should pay attention to your brain health, learn memory improvement techniques, learn new habits for brain and creativity, and work meticulously at Brain Reset. The time and energy you spend on this life-transforming activity bear tremendous benefits when done in the right spirit.

"A biblical comedy, a millennial carnival, a strange dispatch from beyond the rapture."
"A crazy-ass futuristic book."
Jack Delfan is an unwitting Noah who has turned his back on the world of men. He lives in an oil tanker in a sea of sand. He believes in digging. When a son, Hob, is delivered to him, Delfan teaches the boy how to use a spade and read the book. Delfan is a difficult father and refuses to tell Hob who his mother is. Then the Gcwi come.
Hob and the Gcwi set out on a quest to find Hob's mother. It is a journey that is destined to break Hob's heart. There are times when a broken heart is what it takes.
The Excavations is coming of age tale which delves into the history of the world, and into its future. It is a prophecy of what will come if we fail to confront the results of climate change and imploding capitalism.
From old English delfan "to dig"
From Proto-Indo-European root dhelbh - source also of Lithuanian delba "crowbar," Russian dolbit, Czech dlabati, Polish dłubać "to chisel".
Related: Delved; delving.

Many words, concepts, and sentences seem obvious to us; it feels like we know what they mean, and we do not really stop to see if we do. Often once an actual effort is done and we try to put our "knowing" into words, we find things are not that simple.
Many times once an accurate definition is sought, the intricacies of concepts reveal themselves.
Many times when trying to explain an "understood" sentence, we find out it has some hidden folds, and we may have to define some of its parts better, or maybe we uncover another avenue of thought it provokes.
“Innocent Thoughts” discusses such instances and avenues, from world peace to the enigmas of consciousness and free will. Diving into these subjects, “Innocent Thoughts” tries to distill and present some of the current views about our universe.
If the Voyager 1 space probe was picked up in outer space by extraterrestrials, what would happen? Here's your opportunity to find out.
Voyager 1 was launched by NASA in 1977 to study the outer solar system and, ultimately, interstellar space. It carried a gold-plated audio-visual disc in the event that it might be found by intelligent life-forms from other planetary systems. It was discovered by goopmutt bandits who towed it through interstellar space at superluminal speed. In an effort to conceal their crime, they manipulated the data on the craft’s digital tape recorder and left it in the heliosphere where its signal could still be picked up from Earth. Eventually, they abandoned the probe in the Centaurus galaxy where it was picked up by two itinerant spacecombers from a small circumbinary planet known as Morys Minor.
The road to becoming a successful inventor is not an easy one. Paved with difficulties, roadblocks and sometimes sheer, back-to-the-drawing-board failure, the challenging journey has meant that plenty of geniuses have been lost to history and never given the credit they deserved for creating some of the most invaluable items of our time. However, over the course of Fifty Clever Bastards these same forgotten inventors and their unbelievable stories are about to be inducted into our illustrious Hall of Fame. Designed to celebrate all those who fell by the wayside, Fifty Clever Bastards comes to understand just what happened to so many of people behind the things we take for granted. Covering their incredible tales, the book details the unlucky inventors that were killed by their own inventions, debased by fraud or those who mysteriously took their ideas to the grave. Including aviators from the first millennium CE, pioneers of medicine and science and individuals who took their zeal to learn just a bit too far, Fifty Clever Bastards promises to shine a light on all of the crazy, wonderful inventors that history forgot. Responsible for some of the biggest breakthroughs the world has ever seen (and for appliances we use every single day), thanks to Martin Fone’s new book, Fifty Clever Bastards, some of the greatest geniuses of our time have finally been given their due.
The pace of life is such that we rarely have the luxury to stop and think. We take so much on trust or assume that we know why something happens or the way things work. It is only when we stop and think that nagging doubts or questions creep into our subconscious? For those of us blessed (or is it cursed?) with an enquiring mind, once the seed of a question has been planted, we need to find the answer. The purpose of this book is to shed light on some of those nagging and irritating questions. There is no overarching design behind the fifty questions. They are just some of the topics that have puzzled me, a self-confessed ignoramus on all matters scientific, over the years; and I have now had the time to find the answers. Fortunately, greater brains than mine have grappled with some of the issues and carried out bizarre experiments or made quantum leaps of logic to push out further the frontiers of human knowledge. This book celebrates this quest and thirst for knowledge.
Nature gives birth to both Stone and Paras stone, then why don’t you ever try to search for latter one. From past few decades, scientists are working on MMCs to overcome the problem of non-availability of the desired properties of materials irrespective of cost. These innovative materials open up unlimited possibilities for modern material science and development, along with low cost, light weight, easy manufacturing, high strength and much more. It is not easy to explain nurture of nature to the Paras stone, but this book provides a crystal-clear path for the same and makes available a new metric of success to Metal Matrix Composites. Neophytes of this area can easily grab research ideas, on-going invention hints, and literature given in it will impel the mind of an individual to get the knowledge of past inventions and research work, if you want Paras stone in your own research lab then get ‘A Boon to Research’.
“Tactical decision-making under a king's command that reads like a classic Star Trek space battle.”
“A duology that defies easy categorization, but reaches beyond genre definitions to entice readers from military sci-fi, and political sci-fi circles alike.”

They poisoned his planet, massacred his people, and violated his mother.
Now, they're coming for him.
A bastard prince, born to a dishonored queen, Zrahnz is the last hope of a dying world nearly decimated after a treacherous interplanetary betrayal.

RITES OF HEIRDRON
~D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review "Rites of Heirdron is a powerful fantasy telling. Its dual focus on changing worlds and hearts moves deftly from personal to political realms. It's a recommended pick for readers who like their sci-fi spiced with more than light romance, but who want that romance wrapped in the heavier cloak of sacrifice, duty, and life-changing decisions."
~R Dzemo for Readers' Favorite "Newland Moon has the gift of integrating strong themes like love, friendship, loyalty, faith, and redemption into a beautiful story in a seamless manner. The writing is flawless, crisp, and tight, with vivid descriptions that capture the intense action excellently."
