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.

"Jo Ho’s screenwriting background is clearly evident in the pacing, which takes all of the time necessary to tell the story and describe the setting and characters but wastes no words doing so... I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.
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.
"A biblical comedy, a millennial carnival, a strange dispatch from beyond the rapture."
"A crazy-ass futuristic book."

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’.
My recent attempt at restoring the damaged face of the Sphinx is substantially successful. My name is Allen Pollens and I am an author of a number of books, including one that is set mostly in Egypt. It is titled “PHARAOH - The Awakening.”
It’s a fascinating story and along the way, nearly four years ago, I produced a restoration of the face of the Sphinx. I offered a full- color rendition to interested individuals if they would follow the directions at my blog. I am still receiving visitors to my blog who are seeking that image. Recently I decided to attempt a new and improved restoration. The process was fascinating and the result is excellent. It’s all documented in the appendix I added to the Kindle and print versions of “Pharaoh.” Both are available at Amazon.com. Follow this link:
The current price for the print version is $15.99. I’m sorry to say that all of the nine appendix restoration and other images are in black and white to avoid an extreme price increase for color. However, the Kindle version is a BARGAIN! The eight appendix images, including the restoration, are in full color. Further, virtually all Kindle original 85 Egypt images (98%) are now in color. So, the added restoration appendix plus virtually all images in color... ONLY $5.99 - DEAL OF THE YEAR!
