On the planet Ankor, Klubbe the turkle lives as a hermit. A marine mishap inspires him to be an inventor. His inventions and explorations change his life, his entire planet. Turkles are close cousins of turtles. Unlike them, they have yellow golden skin and back shells, walk on their hind legs, have the gift of language, and the ability to create their own culture. The life of Klubbe may read like a light-hearted science fiction story, but it actually happened to him. Princess Corka thinks his invention is sublime. Ubbtosh, the pyramid priest, promises to guide him to the core of the cosmos. In space, there are no sign posts, he finds, but there are other beings. And on Ankor, there are mysteries to be solved. Is the Great Glom more than a myth? And what about the Great Archy Eopta?

One of The Wall Street Journal’s Ten Best Mysteries of the Year “Amazing...This is a series for the ages, it’s so spectacular.”—Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl 1846: In New York City, slave catching isn’t just legal—it’s law enforcement. Six months after the formation of the NYPD, its most reluctant and talented officer, Timothy Wilde, learns of the gruesome underworld of lies and corruption ruled by the “blackbirders,” who snatch free Northerners of color from their homes, masquerade them as slaves, and sell them South to toil as plantation property. When the beautiful and terrified Lucy Adams staggers into Timothy’s office to report a robbery and is asked what was stolen, her reply is, “My family.” Their search for her mixed-race sister and son will plunge Timothy and his feral brother, Valentine, into a world where police are complicit and politics savage, and where corpses appear in the most shocking of places…

August 1845 in New York; enter the dark, unforgiving city underworld of the legendary Five Points... After a fire decimates a swathe of lower Manhattan, and following years of passionate political dispute, New York City at long last forms an official Police Department. That same summer, the great potato famine hits Ireland. These events will change the city of New York for ever. Timothy Wilde hadn't wanted to be a copper star. On the night of August 21st, on his way home from the Tombs defeated and disgusted, he is plotting his resignation, when a young girl who has escaped from a nearby brothel, crashes into him; she wears only a nightdress and is covered from head to toe in blood. Searching out the truth in the child's wild stories, Timothy soon finds himself on the trail of a brutal killer, seemingly hell bent on fanning the flames of anti-Irish immigrant sentiment and threatening chaos in a city already in the midst of social upheaval. But his fight for justice could cost him the woman he loves, his brother and ultimately his life...

Systeme zur optischen Übertragung in Glasfaserkabeln sind im Nachrichten-Weitverkehr bereits heute wirtschaftlicher als entsprechende Kupferkabelsysteme. Hier kommen die beiden großen Vorteile der optischen Übertragung in Glasfasern, nämlich die geringe Dämpfung und die große Bandbreite, voll zum Tragen. Die Möglichkeit einer Breitbandkommunikation mit Integration der verschiedensten Dienste auf der Basis von Glasfaser-Teilnehmeranschlußleitungen wird seit einer Reihe von Jahren intensiv untersucht. Darüber hinaus werden weltweit große Anstrengungen unternommen, durch Fortschritte in den optischen Komponenten, der Kabel- und Verbindungstechnik und insbesondere durch den Einsatz der Mikroelektronik und integrierten Optik Teilnehmeranschlüsse in Glasfasertechnik auch für Schmalbanddienste, also z.B. für Fernsprechen, genauso wirtschaftlich zu machen wie die herkömmlichen Anschlüsse in Kupfertechnik. Ziel des Kongresse war es, die im In- und Ausland beschrittenen Wege zu wirtschaftlichen Teilnehmeranschlüssen in Glasfasertechnik aufzuzeigen und damit einen Beitrag zur baldigen Einführung dieser zukunftsorientierten Technik zu leisten.

Back in 2002 Mr. Wraithe had produced a manual of Magick that surprised even the oldest of veterans in the craft. A book so powerful that it was banned for almost six straight years because of the nature of the spells listed within. He has put together 113 of the most powerful spells ever combined for everyone who wishes to practice in the forbidden regions of magick, whether they be on the dark or light paths of the spectrum. This book was only available for a very limited time back in 2002 and then taken off the shelves in 2003 due to the massive effects the spells created. For the first time in a long and overdue six years, I present to you Il Libro Della Magia Book 1 of the Magia Series.
