The Time Machine (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

THE TIME MACHINE is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895. Wells is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposely and selectively forwards or backwards in time. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle.

The book's protagonist is an English scientist and gentleman inventor living in Richmond, Surrey, in Victorian England, and identified by a narrator simply as the Time Traveller. The narrator recounts the Traveller's lecture to his weekly dinner guests that time is simply a fourth dimension, and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for travelling through it. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person through time, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale, becoming the new narrator. . .

Sophia...

They thought sending me to this supposed tropical paradise would keep me safe. But there's no place safe for me now. Not when the memories won't leave me alone.

I didn't know what the universe had in store for me, but I definitely didn't expect Jameson Burke. People think he has more secrets than I do, but he showed me his true self--his smile, his thoughtfulness, his love.

I can't afford to fall so far, so deep. Not after what happened. I should run, but somehow my heart keeps coming back to him...

Jameson...

I had my own reasons to run. Little did I know the most important piece of my story started and ended with the quiet girl sitting next to me in seventh period.

Sophia Reid's shy smile brought my soul out of hiding. Through her, I learned what starting over really means.

But if I give in to this love, I'll put us both in danger.

For a short time, I was whole again, but what they say is right. The old me is dead, and the new one will never know love again.

Planet Urth (Book 1)

***ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME***

The world has changed. It's dangerous, deadly. Inhuman creatures rule the planet. Animals have mutated. The land is hostile. But it's all I've ever known. Hunger. Fear. Panic. Those emotions are my reality. They are my every day. I am Avery, and I am seventeen. My father died a year ago. Since then I've been responsible for my eight-year-old sister, June.

I worry we are the only humans left.

Humans have been hunted for centuries, to the brink of extinction. I must fight each day to protect my sister. It is the reason I wake, the reason I breathe. But how long can I go on fighting? How long will it be before they find us?

More than two hundred years into the future, human beings are an endangered species. The planet has been battered by war, its inhabitants plagued by disease and death. Few humans survived and remained unaffected. Most changed dramatically and evolved into something else entirely. Irrevocable alterations caused by chemical warfare have created a new species. North America is in ruins and has been overtaken. Humanity has fallen at the hands of mutants known as Urthmen.

Seventeen year-old Avery is alive and unchanged. But she has not been immune to the harshness of the new world. She has lived on the run for much of her life, in terror.

After losing her father, Avery is the sole guardian of her eight-year-old sister, June. Avery is now charged with June's safety as well as her own, a nearly impossible task.

Forced to hide deep in the forest and away from the cities overrun by Urthmen, Avery and her sister are constantly hunted. Danger awaits them at every turn. They fear they are the only human beings left, that they are the last of their kind.

But are they truly alone?

Planet Urth: The Savage Lands (Book 2)

After fleeing the only refuge she's known for much of her life, Avery, along with her sister June and new friends, Will, Oliver and Riley forge through the forest to uncharted territory in search of a better life, in search of other survivors. But Avery soon learns that life beyond the woods is far worse than she ever imagined. She finds that safety does not exist for human beings in a world run by Urthmen.

Hope seems futile.

But Avery refuses to surrender hope and chooses, instead, to push forward and move her group into the heart of danger, to seek out more humans.

Will she and the others survive their journey into the savage lands of Planet Urth?

Planet Urth: The Underground City (Book 3)

We can't stay out here in the open any longer. We killed the king's son. It's only a matter of time before his people find us, before they slaughter us all. We need to leave now. We need to make it to the underground city.

Avery, June and their friends are being hunted. They need to find fuel so that they can travel across the country to the underground city, to a place where humans live safely, free from the terrors above ground. But once they make it there, will it be the idyllic paradise they imagine it to be or will it be worse than the current nightmare in which they live?

Kota Lee has been trying for weeks to get the girl up the street to notice him. She's beautiful and intriguing, but seems incredibly shy. Too shy. Every time he tries to get close, she dodges him, like a skittish little bird, flittering away out of his reach.

Troubled by her haunted looks, he's tried to give her some space, respect her need for solitude. Still, he can't forget those eyes that are haunted and--he thinks--maybe hiding secrets.

One dark night as thunderclouds are rolling in, he's driving home late and spots her standing in the road. It's too late for her to be out for a walk and the pack on her back tells him what she's doing: she's about to run away.

She could get hurt, or worse, disappear forever. He can't let her go; he'd never forgive himself if he did.

See: Whispers of the Damned: Ghostly Games

I never had a problem with ghosts, with anything paranormal. It's part of the teen angst that frames my life. Don't get me wrong--I'm not hung up on some romantic gothic cliche. I'm not even trying to say I have supernatural powers. I just see what you can't. Hear what you can't.

My truth? It's easier to believe in the dead, trapped by demons and freed by angels, than the fantasy of ordinary life circling in loops of routine as the one and only reality.

There's a war of survival lurking in the unseen. Some of it's internal, some isn't.

When I understood darkness was feeding on those trapped, I had a moral hitch. Was it survival of the fittest, or the beginning of the end?

Standing up for the wretched cost me everything.

My story begins now.

Embassy Row: Before the Fall: Arrival

Don't miss this free, bonus short story from New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter's brand-new series, Embassy Row.

Product Description:

Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.

2. Her mother was murdered.

3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her - so there's no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can't control Grace - no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn't stop it, Grace isn't the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

Author Interview:

What inspired you to write a Christian mystery?

Believe it or not, it all started with a dream about a homeless guy who had a much higher vocabulary than one would expect. In my dream, a family took him into their home and later discovered he had been formerly accused of cannibalism. When I woke up in the morning, I knew I had to turn the idea into a novel. When I got about three-fourths of the way through hit, I had a second dream which inspired me to write the second book in the series. The rest just came from my own warped imagination.

Who was your favorite character in the novel?

That's an easy one... Nikki! Her quirky sense of humor is hilarious. I love the way she doesn't let anything get her down. Not to mention the way she flirts with Brock. Wow, is she ever aggressive!

Who would enjoy this series?

Anyone who gets tired of reading the same ole, same ole. This set of novels will keep readers guessing until the end. People who enjoy books void of cursing and inappropriate bedroom scenes are also certain to love the Harmony Series.

Read The Harmony Series for FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription and look for it under Christian Mysteries.

Kellie's Diary #2

This second entry to the Kellie's Diary series is about twice as long as #1.

**As of January 1, 2015 - This book now also includes a plain-text version.

--------

"If you wanted more to happen in the first book then you should be disturbingly elated by the end of this one. A few things happen that may haunt my imagination forever and there is a small surprise at the end that may change the direction of this story, and Kellie may be forced to grow up even faster than ever..." - Allen, via Amazon

It has been almost a full year since the outbreak occurred. Kellie has just turned 10 and she is still alive and well, telling her diary "Barbie" everything she encounters. She's grown more resourceful in her time alone, and has learned to live with the dangers around her. Kellie has run low on resources so she formulates a plan to go to Oregon, where her grandfather's farm is located, in the hope that the rest of her family will be there waiting. She leaves home and starts her long journey. Along the way she runs into many dangers; some are expected, while others are unexpected and beyond anything she's ever experienced... even in her worst nightmares.

(Intended for mature readers; references to disturbing events.)

Great for fans of zombie fiction and "The Walking Dead"!

To tear and bite!"

Teen sleuth Beatrice Beecham and her gang of friends have a new case to solve. In the coastal town of Dorsal Finn a timber wolf escapes from a smuggler's boat at White Wharf. Livestock is found mauled, and the locals are crippled with fear by the hideous sound of snarls and howls in the moonlit nights.

Because Dorsal Finn is not like any other town, things are often drawn to it, strange creatures that are not meant to exist. Now Beatrice and The Newshounds have to find out if the creature roaming the fields and moors is actually an escaped wolf, or something far more sinister. And somehow stop it before the beast adds the residents of Dorsal Finn to its menu!

This free short story is merely a sample of what to expect in Dave Jeffery's Beatrice Beecham series, including Beatrice Beecham's Cryptic Crypt, available from Crystal Lake Publishing--Tales from the Darkest Depths.

This story (and the Beatrice Beecham series) is perfect for fans of werewolves, shapeshifters, American werewolf in London, The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Scooby-Doo, The Monster Squad, The Goonies, Teen Wolf, Secret Seven, Famous Five, and Three Investigators.

Learning through retro gaming

Retro gaming as learning by Hearts and Minds Media

After being involved in the golden age of arcades and home computer games in the 80's and 90's I felt compelled to write a overview of retro gaming as it exists in the UK and its resurgence as a method of training and educating a new generation of gamers and programmers. The 80s provided a unique market and opportunity for bedroom programmers to become involved at a national level in producing products

which sold eventually worldwide to critical acclaim. Alongside this phenomenon of business was the arcade industry which started in Japan with space invaders and soon came to enrapture the world in its potential to draw crowds together chasing the social experience of high-scores and co-operative gaming.

There has been a wave of interest in events and new business's offering retro game collecting and playing across the UK in the past 10 years which suggests that the popularity of gaming on systems and arcades older than 10 years is set to continue.

The following pages will hopefully rekindle your interest in this fascinating area.

Children and the Media - Kids and technology (Special edition)

Children and the media - kids and Technology combo - The need for limits by Hearts and Minds Media

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

It seems these days that kids are operating electronic devices such as smartphones practically moments after being born. Just take a look around any local playgroup or playground: You'll be likely to see kids as young as 2 or even younger clutching mom or dad's phone to play games or view videos. When it comes to technology, kids are not only starting to use it at a younger age but are using it in more varied situations, both at home and at school. The media machine is changing daily utilising new technologies to stimulate, surprise and saturate not only older but the next generation on new methods of living and experiencing life. It is a force to be reckoned with, with the ability to influence actions and behaviour at least through modelling behaviour leading to desensitisation towards sex, violence with the verbal content of this new medium. The BBFC for example is the UK watchdog towards inappropriate content in film and TV which refrains from following its own standards of content rarely cutting or removing a film from the UK market (10 films only banned in the past 10 years; BBFC, 2017)

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

Media and digital devices are an integral part of our world today. The benefits of these devices, if used moderately and appropriately, can be great. But, research has shown that face-to-face time with family, friends, and teachers plays a pivotal and even more important role in promoting children's learning and healthy development. Keep the face-to-face up front, and don't let it get lost behind a stream of media and tech.

EDUCATION - "First-hand experiences... can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for

pupils and enhance their understanding... [and] could make an important contribution to pupils'

future economic wellbeing and to preparing them for the next stage of their lives." (Ofsted, 2008)

HEALTH AND WELLBEING - "Children increase their physical activity levels when outdoors and are

attracted to nature... All children with ADHD [Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder] may benefit

from more time in contact with nature..." (Bird, 2007)

PERSONAL AND SOCIAL SKILLS - "Experience of the outdoors and wild adventure space has the

potential to confer a wide range of benefits on young people... Development of a positive self-image,

confidence in one's abilities and experience of dealing with uncertainty can be important in helping

young people face the wider world and develop enhanced social skills.". It identifies four specific types of impact: COGNITIVE IMPACTS - concerning knowledge, understanding and

other academic outcomes. AFFECTIVE IMPACTS - encompassing attitudes, values, beliefs and selfperceptions. INTERPERSONAL AND SOCIAL IMPACTS - including communication skills, leadership and

teamwork. PHYSICAL AND BEHAVIOURAL IMPACTS - relating to physical fitness, physical skills,

personal behaviours and social actions. Looking more closely at cognitive impacts, "both students

and their teachers reported increases in knowledge and understanding as a result of experiences in

the outdoor classroom. Whenever students were asked about their learning, they were generally able to explain something that they had seen, learned or understood on the visits... Developments in knowledge and understanding appeared to be from across a range of cognitive domains" (Dillon et

al, 2005).

Cages and Kitchen Tables

What do you call it when you ride to a spooky house in the middle of the night and accidently find a device that allows you to talk to animals, and then get kidnapped twice just to become a laboratory experiment, and finally join forces with FBI Agent Scott Tracker to help rescue an entire town?

You call it a day in the life of an eleven-year-old boy named Ben Meyer who reads to many detective adventure stories, doesn't get along with his dad, and isn't thrilled about any of his teachers at school.

His only saving grace is his neighbor's pet rabbit whose name is Ricky. He's furry, cuddly, warm, and Ben considers him to be his best friend.

That is until someone stole him. Enlisting the help of his two friends Spencer and Tara, Ben sets out to find his friend at all cost. Slowly, little by little, like peeling an onion, he brings to light not only who kidnapped his friend, but a devious plot that will threaten his home town, New Pinehill in Vermont as well as the White House in Washington D.C.

With special effects and music sprinkled throughout the audiobook edition, this non-stop epic adventure is dripping with destiny, faith, and hope.

Bugtown

Bugtown is a medieval city which has been abducted in its entirety by bugs from the future. The flesh of the inhabitants, who think they're in Limbo, is used by the bugs to feed their young. Corpses from the town are taken into the castle, which humans from the town are never allowed to enter.

But then chaos and confusion reign when the daylight turns to darkness and monsters appear at the city gates.

Bugtown is an action packed adventure story about a brother and sister (11 and 14 years old) who find themselves suddenly in what seems to be a completely foreign environment, a medieval city which has been abducted in its entirety by aliens from the future. They are not wearing their normal clothes and certain things about them have been modified. In Bugtown the boy and girl, in the course of their quest to take an alien 'baby' from the castle to the city walls, ask and answer the perennial questions of who are they, what are they doing there, and what are the going to do next. It's a terrific story, both funny and exciting, written primarily for 10 to 14 year olds.

I was working as a school librarian when I wrote this book and tried it out on students who were given a questionnaire to fill in and were told the book was written by an Alison Main. The reaction I got to this and its companion, In The Land Of The Demon Masters, was the best thing I'd witnessed in a lifetime of writing novels and plays!!

Gabriella Di Tano of 2M gave it 9 out of ten and commented: I thought the book was well written, funny at times and over all very good because it was exciting and made you want to read on. I had a brilliant ending.

Semai T. Danha of 2N gave it as 10 out of 10, writing: As good as anything I've ever read. She also commented: I really liked this book. It was both exciting and scary especially the part about the headless man. I wish to read more book by this author.

Mulaws Kachina of 1M gave it a 9 out of 10 and commented: I thought Bugtown was a very good book to read because it was interesting and funny and when I read the first chapter I wanted to read on. I think Alison Main should be proud to have written such a good book.

Rochelle McEvoy of 4M gave it a 10 out of 10 and commented: I thought this was really good and funny. I liked especially Robert with his split personality.

Tom Gray of IB gave it a 9 out of 10 and said it was very enjoyable. He also commented: It was very fluent to read. The words were easy to understand but still it wasn't too childish.I think 11 to 14 year olds would like this the best because it is very easy to understand and it is a new idea (Limbo).

I've got tons more of this kind of thing!! If you like this book, you will almost certainly like In The Land Of The Demon Masters by the same author.

Threat (The Common Kingdoms Series Book 2)

Dagger Bearer Aldora Leoma is attacked whilst patrolling the streets. Left for dead in the bakery, Royal Official Raneth Bayre goes to check in on her at the hospital the following morning. She warns him that her attacker is the suspected murderer he's hunting, which worries the villagers; having Jules Rivermud around with a blood-gift that can drown people could cause a lot of problems.

Aldora would have preferred it if Raneth had remained in the village after visiting her. With crime on the rise, he cannot afford to - being one of the best royal officials in active service he must go and escort King Cray to his annual Kingdoms Conference. Making matters worse, Thane Frey, Raneth's family enemy, has seen fit to arrive in the village as well.

Without being able to rely on Raneth whilst he serves the Three Ks, Aldora leaves the hospital and watches over her village for Rivermud's destructive presence. She's surprised when she is rejoined by Raneth with the news that the king was kidnapped on route to the conference outside her village. Worried about what would happen if Raneth doesn't return to the village quickly to hunt down Jules Rivermud, Aldora decides to help him find King Cray.

Threat picks up a year after The Royal Gift in The Common Kingdoms Series and sees a new royal official being introduced to Aldora. Prince Pedibastet, the Prince of Giften's talking cats, also returns in this story for a brief guest appearance. This story will appeal to teenagers who enjoy fantasy-action tales with a dash of adventure and crime.

THE ONES Chapters 1-4

Read the first four chapters of THE ONES for free!

We are not all created equal.

Seventeen years ago, Cody and her boyfriend James were two of the lucky babies from 1% of the population randomly selected to receive genetic engineering.

Known as the "Ones," this generation of genetically enhanced teenagers is excelling. Cody, James, and their fellow Ones are healthy, beautiful, talented...and to some, that's not fair. Mounting fear and jealousy of the Ones' success leads to the creation of the Equality Movement, which quickly gains enough traction to outlaw future genetic engineering--and demote the Ones to second-class citizens.

Cody anticipated the repercussions even before the brick smashed through her window. It bears a clear message: the darkest impulses of society have been unleashed, and the Ones are the targets. As their school, the government, and even family and friends turn against them, Cody begins to believe they have no other choice but to protect their own. She draws closer to a group of radical Ones led by the passionate and fevered Kai, and James begins to question just how far she is willing to go to fight for her rights...

Themes of justice, discrimination and terrorism mix with actual science to create a frightening version of our near future in this pulse-pounding thriller.

Introductions: Volume 1 (The Academy)

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows.
