Book excerpt: From Science fiction grandmaster Frank Herbert, creator of the Dune universe, comes this novel of bioterrorism and gendercide. What if women were an endangered species? It begins in Ireland, but soon spreads throughout the entire world: a virulent new disease expressly designed to target only women. As fully half of the human race dies off at a frightening pace and life on Earth faces extinction, panicked people and governments struggle to cope with the global crisis. Infected areas are quarantined or burned to the ground. The few surviving women are locked away in hidden reserves, while frantic doctors and scientists race to find a cure. Anarchy and violence consume the planet. The plague is the work of a solitary individual who calls himself the Madman. As government security forces feverishly hunt for the renegade scientist, he wanders incognito through a world that will never be the same. Society, religion, and morality are all irrevocably transformed by the White Plague. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "After reading this book, no one should fail to see tuberculosis in South Africa in the light of social policies and interests which have prevented its control. In turn, it shows tuberculosis to be one measure of the cost in suffering of the emergence of a modern capitalist society in South Africa."—Rodney Ehrlich, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York "At almost every point, the author has something fresh to say about previous analyses of the origins, nature and spread of the disease. His subtle exposition of the ideological interpretations of the medical profession—from their adherence to a 'virgin soil' theory to more recent notions of relating to the social and biological aetiology of the disease—is particularly original and thought-provoking. . . . Well researched, effectively organised, and wholly readable."—Shula Marks, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London

Book excerpt: "Weisse tackles medical ethics, offers advice to medical and premedical students and their families, delves into unusual episodes of medical history, confronts considerations of aging and self-image, and discusses the vagaries of rewards and recognition available from medical research.

Finally, he evaluates the changing nature of medicine and medical research and looks into the role of minorities and women in medicine."--Jacket.

Book excerpt: In the frozen waters of the Arctic, Marine bioterror expert Joe Rush races to save a submarine crew from a lethal threat... “The pleas for help stopped coming just after five in the morning, Washington time. The Pentagon staffers cleared for handling sensitive messages sat in horror for a moment and then tried other ways to reach the victims. Nothing worked so they called the Director, who phoned me.” In the remote, frozen waters of the Arctic Ocean, the high-powered and technically advanced submarine U.S.S. Montana is in peril. Adrift and in flames, the boat—and the entire crew—could be lost. The only team close enough to get to them in time is led by Marine doctor and bio-terror expert Joe Rush. With only thirty-six hours before the surviving crew perish, Joe and his team must race to rescue the Montana and ensure that the boat doesn’t fall into enemy hands. Because a fast-approaching foreign submarine is already en route, and tensions may explode. But that’s the least of their troubles. For the surviving sailors are not alone on the sub. Something is trapped with them. Something deadly lethal. Something that plagued mankind long ago, when it devastated the entire world. And the crew of the Montana has unknowingly set it free. Now, Joe and his team must not only find a way to save the Montana and her crew, but stop a lethal horror of apocalyptic consequence from being unleashed on all humanity.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Everything in which the hunter held dear is now forfeit, but his tale continues nonetheless, continuing with the role of a hunter whose sole purpose in life is to find a semblance of hope amidst the cruel world of 1797. Over the course of a year, the towns of the Fray have now grown rampant with civil unrest, inequality, crime, and mental afflictions, which have become more prominent and prevalent in the mind of the weary hunter, and of course, the white plague, which he continues to suffer from every day. On his journey, he comes across a vast array of characters, some that strengthens his resolve and others that threaten his life. Albeit, the hunter has always been a survivor, who is now fueled by a purpose that has reverted back to vengeance.
