Crimes against Humanity:A Normative Account Larry May
The Year: 2085. Humanity has spread throughout the solar system. A stable lunar colony is agitating for independence. Lunar tourism is on the rise... Against this background, professional ´´Close Protection” specialist Scotty Griffin, fresh off a disastrous assignment, is offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to shepherd the teenaged heir to the Republic of Kikaya on a fabulous vacation. Ali Kikaya will participate in the first live action role playing game conducted on the Moon itself. Having left Luna--and a treasured marriage--years ago due to a near-tragic accident, Scotty leaps at the opportunity. Live Action Role Playing attracts a very special sort of individual: brilliant, unpredictable, resourceful, and addicted to problem solving. By kidnapping a dozen gamers in the middle of the ultimate game, watched by more people than any other sporting event in history, they have thrown down an irresistible gauntlet: to ´´win” the first game that ever became ´´real.” Pursued by armed and murderous terrorists, forced to solve gaming puzzles to stay a jump ahead, forced to juggle multiple psychological realities as they do...this is the game for which they’ve prepared their entire lives, and they are going to play it for all it’s worth.
For billions of people, having a religious belief system provides purpose in life. For some, religion serves as a guide for moral behavior. Today’s world is one in which our understanding of world religions is both understatedly important, as well as increasingly complex. After many years exploring the foundations of various world religions, Jason Boyett has written this comprehensive, easy-to-understand exploration of the 12 major world religions through a meticulous, yet unbiased lens. 12 Major World Religions offers an impartial look at where each of these belief systems intersects, how they differ, and why some have been - or are currently - misunderstood.

You will never view the concept of unifying and divisions the same. After listening to this compendium, you will not perceive uniting and divisions from the perspective you have stood by up until this point. This audiobook is propagating that being different is okay and diversity among our fellow humans can be respectfully and humbly disagreeable with love that brings peace within. In view of all the vast and distinctive degrees of nonconformity, remember most united groups sometimes hurts humanity.

Hedge is a typical human - fat and bald, not pretty but not ugly, with a round, doting wife, and a farm where he tends beehives. Except Hedge is not a typical human. In fact, Hedge is not human at all, but a plant sent by the council of plants and the plant of ultimate knowing to observe humanity and determine whether or not humanity is a threat to the universe. This is a task he has blithely performed for 20 years - until the night he receives a message to report back to the Council and realizes he has to leave everything behind.Pursued by an agent of the notorious visitors, whose appearances have heralded the end of civilizations, and torn between his fellow plants and an awakening affection for his earth-wife, Anna, Hedge must find a way to save humanity from visitors, plants, and themselves. 1.

Michener can write.” (Kirkus Reviews) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry McKeever. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/004324/bk_rand_004324_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
From one of Fine Homebuilding´s best-loved authors, Larry Haun, comes a unique story that looks at American home building from the perspective of twelve houses he has known intimately. Part memoir, part cultural history, A Carpenter´s Life as Told by Houses takes the reader house by house over an arc of 100 years. Along with period photos, the author shows us the sod house in Nebraska where his mother was born, the frame house of his childhood, the production houses he built in the San Fernando Valley, and the Habitat for Humanity homes he devotes his time to now. It´s an engaging read written by a veteran builder with a thoughtful awareness of what was intrinsic to home building in the past and the many ways it has evolved. Builders and history lovers will appreciate his deep connection to the natural world, yearning for simplicity, respect for humanity, and evocative notion of what we mean by home. 1.
