Kwan Wilson was a high school basketball star living in San Diego when a tragic accident changed his life in ways no one could predict. He only looked at his phone for a few seconds, but that was all the time it took to crash his car into a telephone pole, the impact killing his mother while severing his spinal cord and paralyzing him from the waist down. After the accident his father, Admiral Douglas Wilson, sends him away to live with his maternal grandmother in South Florida. Kwan’s new principal, anticipating his depression and isolation, tells him about an internship working at a genetics lab in Miami that’s testing shark stem cells on rats in an effort to cure cancer and repair spinal injuries. Kwan declines—until he learns the beautiful Anya Patel is an intern at the lab. The good news is that the stem cells are curing their rat subjects; the bad news is it alters their DNA so much it kills them. When a promising breakthrough is made, Kwan risks his life and injects himself with the experimental stem cells—altering his destiny and the lives of millions in the process.

The adventures of a shark scientist and his mission to change our perception of New Zealand's most feared and misunderstood predator. Riley Elliott is a surfer, spear-fisherman and shark scientist from the Waikato, currently writing a PhD at Auckland University. He's also on a mission to share his fascination with sharks, raise the profile of their dwindling numbers and question the legitimacy of shark-finning in our waters. Riley's passion for sharks started while he was working at the Oceans Research Great White Shark Station in South Africa, where he learned to free-dive with sharks beyond the cage. Upon his return to New Zealand, Riley began research for his PhD, and in the process uncovered some alarming trends. Riley Elliott is making it his mission to educate New Zealanders about the over-exploitation of sharks in our waters, particularly the controversial practice of shark-finning, and how it affects the ocean ecosystem. In the process he's becoming New Zealand's most popular expert on shark species, and a go-to commentator about our increasing encounters with this deadly ocean predator. Shark Man is Riley's story, from his time learning to scuba dive and spearfish,his early fascination with sharks while surfing life at Raglan, his first encounters with great whites in South Africa and learning to safely free-dive to his study of New Zealand sharks species and the making of the TVNZ television documentary series 'Shark Man'. The book also has information about New Zealand's prevalent shark species - where they live, how they hunt, and their interaction with humans, with fascinating new insights and little-known facts.

When Lieutenant Gavin Kelly's recon platoon swims ashore a Mogadishu beach under the glare of hundreds of news camera lights, it is an appropriately surreal beginning to Operation Restore Hope. This modern war is vastly different from the battles Kelly's father and grandfather fought and from the young lieutenant's own experience during Operation Desert Storm. Minutes after the Marines' celebrated landing, one of Kelly's men kills an armed Somali bodyguard. The circumstances of the killing are unclear and Kelly finds himself in the center of a maelstrom. He must act quickly to deflect a vociferous outcry from members of the international press corps, censure by his Marine superiors, and the possibility of losing the loyalty of his men -- particularly two enlisted leaders in the platoon who have vouched for the necessity of the kill. Thus begins Sharkman Six, a stinging morality tale in which Kelly is torn between his men, his confusing mission, and the international rules of engagement he has sworn to uphold. As his platoon descends into the lawless, violent underbelly of Somalia, Lieutenant Kelly must determine his own values -- and allegiances -- in a country where murders are commonplace and constant. With heart-pounding, intricate military detail, rapier wit, and stunning verisimilitude, Sharkman Six speaks to the violent urges lurking in us all and the lengths to which we will go to control them. In Gavin Kelly, West has created an authentic, sympathetic, and wholly compromised young officer of war who will put you in mind of the best of military heroes and antiheroes.

Love Bites is a story set in the near future. Forget Frankenstein. Scientists are able to create a half man/half shark hybrid and when reanimated, it creates the normal havoc one might expect, plus plenty more. A team of scientists who are also lovers, have to watch one man being eaten and a woman being raped before they try to flee, but too late. The hybrid grabs the woman and begins to have sex with her and both lovers find themselves turned on. Thankfully, after he’s done with her he runs off into the city where they are happy to wash their hands of him and know that things just might get back to normal. This over 4,500 word story is quirky, offbeat, sexy, but violent in a few parts -- in a Sci-Fi fantasy sort of way.

When a large wave unceremoniously dumped an enormous shark onto the rocks less than three metres away from eleven-year-old Theo Ferreira, the young boy, was terrified. Fascinated by this thrashing monster from the deep, Theos obsession with sharks was triggered and so began a lifelong association with these predators. Initially intent killing sharks, Theo earned a reputation as a ruthless and successful shark hunter, and slaughtered many Great Whites. But after an encounter with a formidable shark, dubbed The Submarine, which refused to die, Theo converted from a hunter to a dedicated marine conservationist. No longer believing them to be killing machines, he ceased his attempts to destroy them and began to turn his energies into preserving these magnificent creatures. He is dedicated to educating people about the importance of sharks to our oceans at large. This book is testament to his unwavering commitment to this end. The Discovery Channel is shooting a series about Theo Ferriera and his work with great whtie sharks.
