Everyone fears the Viper. I should fear him, too. But hiding away from the world, I couldn't imagine what he could do to me. And I couldn't wait.It was supposed to be the best semester of my life. But then, I met Shin, and my whole world shifted. I shouldn’t want him. But, from the moment I saw him, I knew Shin was perfect. Mysterious. Dangerous. He lights a fire inside me like no other I’ve ever known. But when the secrets that stalk him finally catch up, will either of us survive? When Amie Sinclair signs up for a British semester abroad, she expects little adventure and a lot of studying. What she gets is a rundown, old apartment with a crack in the wall that gives her an accidental peek at her neighbor. She wasn’t expecting a mysterious, alluring stranger on the other side of the wall. Or that saving his life would put her in the crosshairs of a criminal organization intent on silencing them both. She never guessed that it would put her in his crosshairs, too. Shin Hizanagi is a man with many secrets. The kind that could get him killed if he isn’t careful. As the Viper, his past in the mafia is filled with darkness he’s trying to escape. Shin doesn’t have time for the innocent co-ed on the other side of the wall, despite Amie’s wide eyes and inner beauty. It’s impossible to ignore the pull he feels every time they touch or the way her innocence sparks something dark and possessive within him. But his past isn’t as far away as he thought. If he’s not careful, Amie could be drawn into the web of darkness that haunts him. It’s a very good thing he’s earned his reputation. If they want her, they’ll have to go through the Viper first. If you like high-stakes romance novels packed with thrilling action and a dash of comedy, then Hidden is a book you won’t want to miss! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edward F. Norris, III.

AfroSF is the first ever anthology of Science Fiction by African writers only that was open to submissions from across Africa and abroad. It is comprised of original (previously unpublished) works only, from stellar established and upcoming African writers: Nnedi Okorafor, Sarah Lotz, Tendai Huchu, Cristy Zinn, Ashley Jacobs, Nick Wood, Tade Thompson, S.A. Partridge, Chinelo Onwualu, Uko Bendi Udo, Dave de Burgh, Biram Mboob, Sally-Ann Murray, Mandisi Nkomo, Liam Kruger, Chiagozie Fred Nwonwu, Joan De La Haye, Mia Arderne, Rafeeat Aliyu, Martin Stokes, Clifton Gachagua, and Efe Okogu. 'Proposition 23' by Efe Okogu nominated for the 2013 BSFA Awards. 'A ground-breaking anthology. I could not recommend it enough.' - Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winning author of Osama. 'AfroSF will serve as an admirable antidote for all those who have to be reminded that Africa is a continent, not a country. Both the stories and the authors are as diverse as any reader could wish...Looking over this broad assortment...it's clear that this anthology has lived up to its ambition...highly readable and enjoyable stories that take the raw materials of science fiction and give them a different spin...Although it is coming from a small press, it would be lovely if this anthology were to get some of the wider attention it deserves.' - Karen Burnham, Locus December 2012. 'Africa is in our future and AfroSF demonstrates that the same can be said of its authors. These stories have an energy and a vitality that is missing from much western science fiction today, and they're as varied as the continent itself. Read them and you'll find your new favourite authors. Recommended.' - Jim Steel, Interzone's Book Reviews editor and widely published short-story writer. 'The stories in AfroSF feature all the things fans of science fiction expect: deep space travel, dystopian landscapes, alien species, totalitarian bureaucracy, military adventure, neuro-enhanced nightlife, artificial intelligence, futures both to be feared and longed for. At once familiar and disarmingly original, these stories are fascinating for the diversity of voices at play and for the unique perspective each author brings to the genre. This is SF for the Twenty-first Century.' - David Anthony Durham, Campbell Award winning author of The Acacia Trilogy. 'I'd like the repurpose the title of an old anthropological study to describe this fine new anthology: 'African Genesis.' The stories in this unprecedented, full-spectrum collection of tales by African writers must surely represent, by virtue of their wit, vigor, daring, and passion, the genesis of a bright new day for Afrocentric science fiction. The contributors here are utterly conversant with all SF subgenres, and employ a full suite of up-to-date concepts and tools to convey their continent-wide, multiplex, idiosyncratic sense of wonder. With the publication of this book, the global web of science fiction is strengthened and invigorated by the inclusion of some hitherto neglected voices.' - Paul Di Filippo, co-author of Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels 1985-2010. 'This is a book of subtle refractions and phantasmic resonances. The accumulated reading effect is one of deep admiration at the exuberance of the twenty-first century human imagination.' - A. Igoni Barrett, author of Love is Power, Or Something Like That. 'AfroSF is an intense and varied anthology of fresh work. Readers and writers who like to explore new viewpoints will enjoy this book.' - Brenda Cooper, author of The Creative Fire.

Invasive Species

Invasive species come in all sizes, from plant pathogens like the chestnut blight in eastern North America, to the red imported fire ant that has spread throughout the South, the predatory Indian mongoose now found in the Caribbean and Hawaii, and the huge Burmese python populating the Florida swamps. And while many invasive species are safe and even beneficial, the more harmful varieties cost the world economy billions of dollars annually, devastate agriculture, spread painful and even lethal diseases, and otherwise diminish our quality of life in myriad surprising ways. In Invasive Species: What Everyone Needs to Know, award-winning biologist Daniel Simberloff offers a wide-ranging and informative survey that sheds light on virtually every aspect of these biological invaders. Filled with case studies of an astonishing array of invasive species, the book covers such topics as how humans introduce these species-sometimes inadvertently, but often deliberately-the areas that have suffered the most biological invasions, the methods we use to keep our borders safe, the policies we currently have in place to manage these species, and future prospects for controlling their spread. An eminent ecologist, Simberloff analyzes the direct and indirect impacts of invasive species on various ecosystems, such as when non-native species out-compete native species for food or light, describes how invasive species (such as the Asian mosquito that is a vector for West Nile virus, itself an invasive species) transmit pathogens, and explains his acclaimed theory of 'invasional meltdown' in which two or more introduced species combine to produce a far more devastating impact than any one of them would have caused alone. The book also discusses the more controversial issues surrounding invasive species and it concludes with suggested readings and a list of related web sites.
