Waseem Mahmood lost almost everything when his brother broke a confidence and filed a story in the world's highest circulating tabloid newspaper, the News of the World. He feared he would never work in broadcast media again, and history intervened with the events of 9/11, the attack on Afghanistan, and the fall of the Taliban. Headed by Mahmood, a group of local and foreign journalists responded to the events by producing a radio program based in Kabul to disseminate much-needed and, for the first time, uncensored information to the country’s people. What they end up providing is hope for a devastated land and a voice for a people long smothered by oppression. Told with searing honesty, this is a story of struggle, cruelty, and courage populated by ordinary people who risk their lives for freedom.

A novel of compelling suspense. Professor James Lowry didn't believe in spirits, or witches, or demons. Not until a gentle spring evening when his hat disappeared, and suddenly he couldn't remember the last four hours of his life. Now, the quiet university town of Atworthy is changing - slightly at first, then faster and more frighteningly each time he tries to remember. Lowry is pursued by a dark, secret evil that is turning his whole world against him while it whispers a warning from the shadows: If you find your hat you'll find your four hours. If you find your four hours then you will die... "A classic tale of creeping, surreal menace and horror... one of the really, really good ones." — Stephen King

As a boy, climbing legend Reinhold Messner was inspired by another legend: George Mallory's tragic final ascent of Mount Everest in 1924. To Messner, and to thousands of others, Mallory's attempt--whether or not it succeeded--remains the greatest exploit in the annals of mountain climbing. Though Mallory's body was finally found, we have lost, Messner believes, the spirit that guided him; summiting Everest has become merely a corporate challenge and a matter of technology, not a rendezvous with destiny. Using the British climber's journals and letters, Messner thrillingly re-creates Mallory's three assaults on Everest, including his final ascent. Here is both an investigation into the death of George Mallory and a deeply felt homage--to a mountain, to the spirit of an age, and to the man who inspired those who followed in his footsteps.

Now collecting X-O Manowar’s complete first year in the Valiant Universe! From the epic origin to the battle for Planet Death, the definitive tale of Valiant’s flagship hero comes together in this prestige-sized collection by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Surrogates) and comics visionaries Cary Nord (Conan), Lee Garbett (Batman: RIP), and Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis). Aric of Dacia, a fifth century Visigoth armed with the universe’s most powerful weapon, is all that stands between the Earth and all-out annihilation at the hands of the alien race that abducted him from his own time. Stranded in the modern day, X-O Manowar’s battle against the Vine will take him into the shadows with the lethal operative known as Ninjak — and launch a quest for vengeance that will bring an alien empire to its knees. The Vine destroyed Aric’s world. Now he will give them war. Collecting the sold-out X-O MANOWAR #1-14, the X-O Manowar Book One Deluxe also comes jam-packed with more than 20 pages of never-before-seen art and extras, direct from the Valiant vaults.
