The planets and their effect on the human race are at the heart of this stellar collection of provocative science fiction short stories, Adventures in the Cosmos by Darryl L. Gopaul. A second menacing moon appears in one story, which awakens powerful new forces on Earth. In another story, humanoids venture onto Earth and start to behave very differently than they usually do, right up until the moment they are called back to their home planet. In other stories, humans face a new biological phenomenon or gain new abilities, like telepathy. Hinting that strange, powerful forces are quietly guiding humans on Earth, Gopaul probes the possibilities that exist in the deepest pockets of outer space and right here on our home planet. Inspiring, stunning, and sometimes shocking, Adventures in the Cosmos shows that while the universe is our new frontier, it will take not just bravado but understanding to conquer or control it. A thinking person's collection of sci fi, Adventures in the Cosmos is both beautifully written and bolstered by the expertise of Gopaul, who is a microbiologist. In story after story, he prods you to see the earth, the planets, and yourself in new and original ways.

With unforgettable characters and exotic wildlife, The Elephant Whisperer is an enthralling book that will appeal to animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere. When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of 'rogue' elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival – dangerous and unpredictable, they would be killed if Anthony wouldn't take them in. As Anthony risked his life to create a bond with the troubled elephants and persuade them to stay on his reserve, he came to realize what a special family they were, from the wise matriarch Nana, who guided the herd, to her warrior sister Frankie, always ready to see off any threat, and their children who fought so hard to survive.

TAKE A TRIP with a psychopath as he seeks revenge on friends and family who set him up and crossed him once they thought that he would be safely locked away in prison for a very long time. This book is based on an actual incident that took place in Atlantic City, New Jersey, back in June 2006. A very mentally unstable man, who was striving to maintain his sanity, was placed into a position where he felt forced to defend himself using deadly force. The woman closest to him sent people after him, to kill him, but they failed. Protecting himself got him over fifi ve long years in prison. Five years where a rage grew inside of him every second of each day. Throughout the incident and the length of the prison sentence, He is crossed by his family, friends, and the mothers of his children. All of them knew what type of animal they were dealing with, but they chose to cross him anyway. From the moment that He is released from prison, He begins seeking revenge on them all. His goal is not just to kill them. He wants to utterly destroy their lives and the lives of their loved ones. When someone this determined and demented is released back into society, with a grudge to settle, absolutely no one is safe; and He will prove it. Trunk Space is truly the most twisted tale ever told about what could happen when people mess with the wrong person. Take a journey into the mind of a lunatic and ride with him as He rights the wrongs that were done to him. Youll never expect what will happen next because even he is too sick and demented to know. Have you crossed the line lately with someone who is a little off? Hopefully not, or these events, or ones like it, could surely happen to you too. Feel His pain and His victims horror as He exacts his revenge.
