Weapons of Chess An Omnibus of Chess Strategies Book Excerpt:

With Weapons of Chess, National Master and highly acclaimed teacher Bruce Pandolfini brings us the most accessible and easy-to-use chess strategy book ever. Written for beginning and intermediate players, Weapons of Chess is the first encyclopedia of chess strategies that doesn't rely on the usual baffling chess notation. There are no symbolic chess moves, no charts or sequences in chess notation: every move is explained in words. Arranged alphabetically for easy use and based mainly on pawn formation, the incredibly detailed and thorough entries in this book talk a player through dozens of common strategic dilemmas, such as "doubled pawn," "bishops vs. knights," and "hanging pawn pair." Diagrams illustrate the terms, first showing the basic position and then strategically moving to more complicated versions of it. Players will learn how to formulate plans once they have reached a middlegame, enabling them to make wiser strategic decisions after the first few moves of the game. Designed for use as a ready reference during actual practice games, and usable without a chess board, Weapons of Chess is a unique and invaluable resource for any developing chess player.

Steampunk Omnibus Book Excerpt:

Four Steampunk Stories of Mystery and AdventureThe Galvanic Century series showcases a world where Queen Victoria rules an empire of steam from an iron throne well into the 20th century. It's a world where airships ply the skies and inventors cobble together monsters and wonders in their workshops. A world where were all the scientific fever dreams of the Victorian era - animal magnetism, galvanic resurrection, rare ether - are manifest. A world marching inexorably towards a great war that will rock the earth to its very foundations. The Steampunk Omnibus collects the first four Galvanic Century books into one collection. In Bartleby and James, the eponymous detectives set out on their new endeavor as private detectives and tackle their first cases. In A Gentlewoman's Chronicles gentlewoman Aldora Fiske balances obligation and justice as she seeks a life of adventure beyond London's social season. In March of the Cogsmen, Bartleby and Aldora's wedding is harried by dead men melded with hot brass. In Dreams of the Damned, Alton Bartleby must confront the father that he had committed decades ago – and convince the man to release the hostages he's taken.

A Science Fiction Omnibus Book Excerpt:

This new edition of Brian Aldiss’s classic anthology brings together a diverse selection of science fiction spanning over sixty years, from Isaac Asimov’s ‘Nightfall’, first published in 1941, to the 2006 story ‘Friends in Need’ by Eliza Blair. Including authors such as Clifford Simak, Harry Harrison, Bruce Sterling, A. E. Van Vogt and Brian Aldiss himself, these stories portray struggles against machines, epic journeys, genetic experiments, time travellers and alien races. From stories set on Earth, to uncanny far distant worlds and ancient burnt-out suns, the one constant is humanity itself, compelled by an often fatal curiosity to explore the boundless frontiers of time, space and probability.
