One woman’s journey into medical hell and the lessons that will help cure millions....Life has always been a personal battle for Julia Hugo Rachel - but, hey, she is typical of millions of people. A fun-loving, outdoorsy American girl, Julia lived close to the military community and saw early on how conflict and the trauma of war can scar a person - on the inside as well as outside. Her own demons began to appear as a child at the hands of a spiteful mother. Unable to understand, Julia slipped unnoticed into the grip of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Meanwhile, she watched as the lives of veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq she had befriended were crushed by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).When her sport-loving son, Blake, came close to death after succumbing to CFS, she decided something had to change. She had to fight medical ignorance and government cover-ups. Perhaps her fight with her mother was worst.But Viral Assault is Julia Hugo Rachel’s powerful response: Debilitating diseases like CFS and PTSD are not all in the mind. In her own words: "There are millions of men and women who have been lumped together under the general heading of ‘mentally ill’ as a convenient way of evading the diagnosis of more complex illnesses." Julia’s story will be felt and understood by every family that has suffered from years of misdiagnosis and frustration.Julia Hugo Rachel has spent a lifetime in intelligence working with various agencies both in America and overseas. She is close to many members of the Special Forces and has experienced firsthand the cost of war for veterans and their families. Julia has applied all of her training in intelligence and analysis to peel back the veil of denial and secrecy that surrounds a whole family of illnesses from CFS to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Gulf War illness (GWI) that seem to have common cause and that impact millions of active military personnel, veterans, and ordina 1.

Fleeing a carnivorous race of alien monsters, the entire surviving human population from 500 years in the future escapes into the present in this thrilling science fiction adventure from one of the golden age greats. Our human descendants from five centuries in the future are coming to visit - all one billion of them - arriving via tunnels through time. Even though the present is merely a stopover and their ultimate destination is the age of the dinosaurs, their arrival has caused a worldwide uproar. Some folks want them gone, and some want to go with them as governments and powerful corporations alike scheme to get their hands on remarkable, potentially profitable time-travel technology. There is a dark and terrifying reason, however, for the visitors' abrupt arrival. Our frightened descendants are seeking sanctuary from carnivorous aliens who have descended upon the future Earth, a threat that could mean the rapid destruction of the entire human race. And the end could come sooner than anyone imagined, for some of the intelligent, rapidly breeding extraterrestrial monsters who have been devouring our children's children may well have followed their prey back to the now. A speculative fiction master who stands alongside Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein in the pantheon of golden age science fiction gods, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award winner Clifford D. Simak delivers an alien invasion tale that is at once wildly imaginative, seriously thought provoking, and just plain fun. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fleet Cooper.

E. C. “Scar” Gordon was on the French Riviera recovering from a tour of combat in Southeast Asia, but he hadn’t given up his habit of scanning the personals in the newspaper. One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential, willing to travel, no family or emotional ties, indomitably courageous and handsome of face and figure. Permanent employment, very high pay, glorious adventure, great danger. You must apply in person, 17 rue Dante, Nice, 2me étage, apt. D." How could you not answer an ad like that, especially when it seemed to describe you perfectly? Well, except maybe for the “handsome” part, but that was in the eye of the beholder anyway. So he went to that apartment and was greeted by the most beautiful woman he’d ever met. She seemed to have many names but agreed he could call her Star. A pretty appropriate name, as it turned out, for the empress of twenty universes. And she sends him on the adventure of a lifetime. Robert A. Heinlein’s one true fantasy novel, Glory Road is as much fun today as when he wrote it after Stranger in a Strange Land. Heinlein proves himself as adept with sword and sorcery as with rockets and slide rules, and the result is exciting, satirical, fast-paced, funny, and tremendously readable - a favorite of all who have read it. Glory Road is a masterpiece of escapist entertainment with a typically Heinleinian sting in its tail. Robert A. Heinlein (1907–1988) was the dominant science fiction writer of the modern era, a writer whose influence on the field was immense. He won science fiction’s Hugo Award for best novel four times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bronson Pinchot. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/005010/bk_blak_005010_sample.mp3.
