Eight years a soldier, Peter Ash came home from Iraq and Afghanistan with only one souvenir: what he calls 'white static', a buzzing claustrophobia due to post-traumatic stress that has driven him to spend a year roaming the Pacific coast's mountains and forests, sleeping under the stars. But when a friend from the Marines commits suicide, Ash returns to civilization to help the man's widow and two young children. While repairing her dilapidated porch, he makes two unwelcome discoveries: The first is a dog, the meanest, ugliest dog he's ever laid eyes on, guarding a suitcase; the second unwelcome surprise is the suitcase's contents – $400,000 in cash and four slabs of plastic explosive. Just what was his friend caught up in during his final days? Ash will find that the demons of war aren't easy to leave behind...

With billions around the globe jobless, a spiraling crime rate, and an unquenchable demand for offworld human labor and soldiers, Earth’s rulers implement voluntary and forced transportation to other planets. Among those compelled to go offworld are criminals and the unemployed. Serve your sentence and maybe you will get the coveted “Second Chance at Life the Way It Should Be.” Condemned killer Mace Christopher is just another piece of human flotsam lost among the hopeless majority of humanity’s teeming billions. The odds are against him and getting worse. He’s had at least one memory wipe and his wife and former life are both lost to him forever. When he is sentenced to Test Group Six on the hell planet known as Baachus III, he knows his chances of survival—let alone a Second Chance—just got slimmer. Some people like a challenge.

"DePoy, a folklorist, excels at providing local color and creating complex characters. The story unfolds slowly and lyrically, giving readers a sense of small-town Appalachian atmosphere." –Booklist on A Minister's Ghost "By far DePoy's best, with top-notch plotting, full-blown characters, and a bit of Shakespeare thrown in." – Kirkus Reviews (starred) on A Minister's Ghost Fever Devilin, born and raised amongst the hill country folk of the Georgia Appalachians, left home a long time ago and pursued an education, then a career, in the wider outside world. A folklorist by inclination and profession, he left the strange world of academia behind to return to his family-home in the if-anything-stranger mountain town he grew up in. But oddness follows Fever wherever he goes and Blue Mountain, Georgia is no different. When a man shows up at his house, claiming to be over a hundred years old even though he looks like he's in his 30's, Fever is pretty sure his guest is not right. When the man starts to wave a gun around, then falls suddenly asleep immediately afterward, Fever thinks he's both "not right" and "dangerous" and slips out to call the sheriff. The sheriff, Fever's childhood friend, has been hearing reports of this particular vagrant all day but before he can get out there, the man disappears. In the early morning, the body of man that fits the description of the mysterious vagrant is found by the side of the road, shot to death. But, although the body is wearing the same clothes that the vagrant was, it isn't the same person.

John Lambert was a renowned naval draughtsman, whose plans were highly valued for their accuracy and detail by modelmakers and enthusiasts. By the time of his death in 2016 he had produced over 850 sheets of drawings, many of which have never been published. These were acquired by Seaforth and this title is the fourth of a planned series of albums on selected themes, reproducing complete sheets at a large page size, with expert commentary and captioning. Trawlers and drifters served in both world wars in their thousands; and, in their tens of thousands, so did their fishermen crews. Indeed, these humble craft were the most numerous vessel type used by the Royal Navy in both wars, and were the answer to the strategic or tactical conundrums posed by new technology of mines and submarines. In his accompanying text, Steve Dunn examines the ships themselves, their design, construction, arming, operations and development; and he also relates how the trawlermen and skippers, from the age-old fishing ports of Grimsby, Hull, Lowestoft ad Great Yarmouth, Aberdeen and Fleetwood, came to be part of the Royal Navy, and describes the roles they played, the conditions they served under and the bravery they showed. The book takes some 30 large sheets of drawings which John Lambert completed of these vessels and divides into two sections. The first part tells how the fishing fleet came to be an integral part of the Royal Navy’s pre-1914 plans and details some of the activities and actions of trawlers and drifters at war in 1914-18. And the second investigates the armed fishing fleet in the struggle of 1939-45. These wonderfully detailed drawings, which are backed by a selection of photographs and a detailed complementary text, offer a superb technical archive for enthusiasts and ship modellers, but the book also tells a fascinating story of the extraordinary contribution the vessels and their crews made to the defeat of Germany in two world wars.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the response of seabed drifters (SBD' s) to combined waves and currents and, specifically, to examine the feasibility of modifying these bottom current drogues to behave more like sediment particles. This is the only known full-scale, quantitative study of the response of SBD's to wave and current forces. Standard design SED's were modified by changing the attached weight so that the SBD's would move on the seafloor only when the flow conditions were sufficiently vigorous to initiate sediment motion. Relative drag and inertia coefficients for SBD's were evaluated and related to the Reynolds numbers and the Keulegan-Carpenter parameter. Using these relationships, a methodology was derived for selecting threshold SED weightings appropriate for different situations. The SBD's used in these tests were identical to those used in recently reported studies conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Duck, NC, Sand Island, AL, and Humboldt, CA.
