What will the next global conflict look like? Find out in this ripping, near-futuristic thriller. The United States, China, and Russia eye each other across a twenty-first century version of the Cold War, which suddenly heats up at sea, on land, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. The fighting involves everything from stealthy robotic–drone strikes to old warships from the navy’s “ghost fleet.” Fighter pilots unleash a Pearl Harbor–style attack; American veterans become low-tech insurgents; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta. Ultimately, victory will depend on blending the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future. The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, it is unique in that every trend and technology featured in the novel is real, or could be soon Praise for Ghost Fleet‘A wild book, a real page-turner’ The Economist ‘Ghost Fleet is a thrilling trip through a terrifyingly plausible tomorrow.

The Rejuvenation Series was drafted between 2013 and 2015 and comprises four books. While some of the characters, people, and events follow on from book to book, in character they are all different. —Rekindling of Hope (Political novel written in 2013 thinly disguised as a science fiction drama.) —Consolidation of Hope (Pure science fiction novel.) —Fulfilment of Hope (Although nominally a science fiction drama, a significant part of the book was about how to renovate the ecology of a primitive planet.) —Defence of Hope (This book has two timelines, one of which goes into the past using a backdrop of real characters and events dressed up with a fictional narrative, while the other moves into the far future. The timelines regularly intersect, and it is actually a mystery novel in the sense that a perceptive reader might guess before the end what was actually happening. A few clues were scattered through the text.) Completion of Hope Description With four books in the series, Doug decided to set up the stories in two paired texts which fit together naturally, Starting of Hope being the first and Completion of Hope the second. Fulfilment of Hope Following on from Rekindling of Hope and Consolidation of Hope, this science fiction novel describes the settlement of a primitive planet and the subsequent development of a new federation by one of the Shepherd children. In this project, they are assisted by artificial intelligences, which are effectively life forms in their own right. Dr. Katie Shepherd married a soldier called Hans Gretner, and the pair of them prepare to be taken together with about four thousand colonists to a geologically young planet at an enormous distance from Earth. The giant spacecraft which is to carry them is known as Habitat, and its resident artificial intelligence is called Sheila. No trace is to be left on Earth of their final destination, and they will have to take all the fauna and flora required to reseed a planet with them. The Bearing continues to provide considerable help, as the successful creation of this federation is critical to their plans for further developing the galaxy. They are certain that Katie is going to have to overcome huge problems in setting up her federation. This is a book of ecological development, love and war, disaster, and recovery. It completes the trilogy of Rejuvenation books by bringing the story full circle. Defence of Hope Throughout human history, most significant events would have happened through movement of peoples, food and economic pressures, or fundamental religious or political differences. In a few cases, individuals have played starring roles, and their presence or absence made a fundamental change to the flow of history. Defence of Hope combines two storylines in a science fiction format, one of which uses the backdrop of real events and people in the past combined with a fictional narrative to describe some key ‘divertants’. The other storyline moves into the far future, and the two threads regularly intersect. While it is a standalone novel, it uses characters and some of the events of the Rejuvenation Trilogy as a start point. This is actually a mystery novel in the sense that a perceptive reader might guess before the end what is actually happening. A few clues were scattered through the text.

Captain Lana Fiveworlds has three ghastly problems: (1) Her beloved crewman Calder Durk's gone missing. (2) She now has a daughter to bring up on the rickety free-trader ship, Gravity Rose. (3) Said daughter's from a parallel dimension (and that's only the start of her strangeness). Meanwhile, Commander Adella Vega of the Alliance navy - aka Hell-Fleet - also has three dire headaches: (1) She's stuck at the dog-end of the galaxy on punishment duty with the Fleet's losers, thieves and pedantic pen-pushers. (2) Large portions of her sector just went dark. (3) Something big, bad, and particularly nasty is now heading her way. Both their troubles are about to collide and multiply in the most horrific manner since the Vela Supernova Remnant detonated. Sometimes, the future's so bright you better bring lead-lined shades. And a rail-cannon or three. Because Earth's best space opera series just met the page-turning universe of military science fiction! ABOUT THE BOOK 'Hell Fleet' is the 5th book in Sliding Void series. It's a completely stand-alone adventure, not directly linked to the first four books.

It is estimated that, worldwide, about 700 large commercial vessels have to be scrapped each year, as they reach the end of their working life. Much of the material they are made from can be recycled, but many ships also contain hazardous materials, such as asbestos, PCBs and waste oils, which need to be disposed of safely. The Committee's report considers how defunct ships are dismantled and why most are currently dismantled in developing countries, mostly in Asia; health and safety protection for workers, and environmental protection standards; the international regulatory framework, including legislation such as the Basel Convention and EC regulations, IMO guidelines and enforcement problems; the principles of responsible ship recycling; the Government's approach to ship recycling and a UK ship recycling industry. Findings include that the Government has an important role to play in ensuring this issue receives sufficient international priority, particularly during the UK's forthcoming EU Presidency and chairmanship of the G8; as well at home in helping persuade UK-based shipowners to arrange for their vessels to be disposed of responsibly. As a first step, it should ensure that all naval and other publicly-owned vessels are dismantled to the highest health, safety and environmental standards.

Dramatic true stories of New England maritime history, with photos. Large, wooden-hulled schooners graced the seas of coastal Maine for more than a century as vessels of trade and commerce. With the advent of steam-powered craft, however, these elegant four-, five-, or six-masted wooden ships became obsolete and vanished from the harbors and horizons. The Edward Lawrence, the last of the six-masters, became her own funeral pyre in Portland Harbor, burning to ash before everyone’s eyes. The Carroll A. Deering washed ashore with no trace of her crew, empty as a ghost ship except for three cats and a pot of pea soup still cooking on the stove. In this testament to the beauty of the Maine coastal region, maritime history enthusiast Ingrid Grenon tells the story of these magnificent relics of the bygone Age of Sail and celebrates the people who devoted their lives to the sea.

THE QUIET WAR Who decides what it means to be human? Twenty-third century Earth has been ravaged by climate change, and is now dominated by a few powerful families, with millions of people in prison and millions more labouring to rebuild ruined ecosystems. Meanwhile on Jupiter and Saturn, live the Outers. They have built a wild variety of scientific utopias crammed with exuberant creations of the genetic arts. Now they want to colonise Earth and drive human evolution in a new direction. On Earth, some want to launch a pre-emptive strike against the Outers while others wish to exploit the talents of the gene wizards. It is clear that the fragile detente between the two branches of humanity is breaking down and they may be heading towards war . . . GARDENS OF THE SUN The Quiet War is over. A century of enlightenment, rational utopianism and exploration of new ways of being human has fallen dark. But victory is fragile, and riven by vicious internal politics. While seeking out and trying to anatomise the strange gardens abandoned in place by Avernus, the Outers' greatest genius, the gene wizard Sri Hong-Owen is embroiled in the plots and counterplots of the family that employs her. The diplomat Loc Ifrahim soon discovers that profiting from victory isn't as easy as he thought. And in Greater Brazil, the Outers' democratic traditions have infected a population eager to escape the tyranny of the great families who rule them. After such a conflict only one thing is clear. No one can escape the consequences of war - especially the victors.
