Prepare to meet the world's most dangerous man . . . Nicholai Hel-genius, mystic, and the perfect, formidable assassin-was first introduced to readers in Shibumi, the classic #1 bestseller by master storyteller Trevanian. Now critically acclaimed author Don Winslow continues Hel's story for the first time in this all-new, blockbuster thriller. SATORI It is the fall of 1951, and the Korean War is raging. Twenty-six-year-old Nicholai Hel has spent the last three years in solitary confinement at the hands of the Americans. Hel is a master of hoda korosu, or "naked kill," is fluent in seven languages, and has honed extraordinary "proximity sense"-an extra-awareness of the presence of danger. He has the skills to be the world's most fearsome assassin and now the CIA needs him. The Americans offer Hel freedom, money, and a neutral passport in exchange for one small service: to go to Beijing and kill the Soviet Union's commissioner to China. It's almost certainly a suicide mission, but Hel accepts. Now he must survive chaos, violence, suspicion, and betrayal while trying to achieve his ultimate goal of satori-the possibility of true understanding and harmony with the world.

A powerful journey where faith, -philosophy, and family collide... The philosophy was perfect. The image, so new-age. And the idea of Zen enlightenment, so fantastically nontraditional. For Jake, the Zen Center in remote New Mexico seemed like the perfect answer to life's problems, and for ten years he knew little else. His life was slowly consumed by the cult that he thought was saving him. Acclaimed exit therapist and cult expert Joseph Szimhart crafts a narrative that explores the complex interactions between faith, family, and reality. Inspired by the author's own experiences in a cult, the story's framework is set in the emotionally rooted trappings of a fringe religious commune, which provides a poignant backdrop for examining the problems we all struggle to overcome. It also presents a chilling look at the subtle manipulations that charismatic figures use on the rest of us. It is estimated that five to seven million Americans have been involved in cults or similar groups. Today, organizations such as the Church of Scientology continue to grow in size and in fame, even as they become more and more controversial. Through his vast experience Joseph Szimhart gives readers a unique opportunity to not only peer behind this curtain, but to truly understand what it is like to be entangled in a cult. He provides insight and perspective on the abstract, the dogmatic, the ordinary, and everything in between. Mushroom Satori is a secret glimpse into a world that most of us cannot fathom, and it serves as both lens and mirror with which to examine our own lives. This novel ultimately presents a beautifully crafted message one that will interest any reader who seeks more substance than just another happy ending. Readers will find themselves grieving over the protagonist's stolen youth even as they sympathize with the young man's bewildering trek toward adulthood. They will marvel at Szimhart's uncompromising account of the wild promises and limitations of faith that surround us and Jake alike. Mushroom Satori reminds us that when we are down, when we are disheartened, and when we are looking for answers, we are not alone. But when we go hunting for answers and for messiahs we must be cautious they are hunting us too.

In 2034, the Earth is in crisis. Energy use is at an all-time high, and energy-hungry nations seem on the verge of going to war with one another. But on the moon a discovery is made, something that changes the balance of everything. A set of caves is opened by explorers, revealing a buried base thousands of years old. Among the relics found is the ruin of an ancient starship, with an engine capable of carrying humanity to the stars - or becoming the golden apple that starts a war no one can win. A handful of unlikely heroes will risk their lives to keep the starship safe. If life knocked you down, would you risk everything you had left to reach for the stars? Excerpt: "Dan - ad astra!" Dan heard the order. Ad astra. To the stars. It was a toast the two of them had shared back in college, when they first stepped onto the roads which would lead them into space. It had been John's idea to use the toast as a code word now. Dan didn't even take a deep breath before executing the order. He'd practiced this with Majel enough times in the simulator - not the part about having a gunman in the bridge, but if that order was ever given, it would be a true crisis. He checked the screen again. Visual range in only fifteen seconds. No time for anything else. He rapidly initiated the program, said a quick prayer, and pressed the Enter button on his keyboard. Immediately, the ship began to shudder." The story continues in book two "Stellar Legacy" and book three "Deep Waters"

Satori is a Japanese word that means ‘awakening,’ the Buddhist equivalent of the beginning of the path to enlightenment. As the title of this book of poetry, it represents moments in the journey of human experience. A journey which, whether seen as meaningless or as filled with purpose, is nevertheless fascinating and tantalizingly invites us to explore its mysteries and contradictions. At one level, the poems express universal emotions and the well-known themes of ghazals -pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. However, these themes are sprinkled with philosophical musings, existential questions, cynical reflections, and some “aha!” and “oh-no!” perspectives. Of course, the words acquire meaning based only on the reader’s interpretation... an interpretation which often comes as a surprise to the writer. Most of the poems follow the ghazal form, with rhyming couplets and a refrain, with each line sharing the same meter. However, some are written in free verse. The dominant language is Urdu but is often supported and enriched with Hindi.
