Nano Contestant – Episode 3: Combat Obstacles

 EPISODE 3 – Combat Obstacles
Determination forged in combat is its purest form.

Game One of the Tech Games is pushing the limits of even extra-human capabilities.  Roland must face the longest and most dangerous obstacle course in existence, if he wants a chance at uncovering evidence against the ruthless Pinnacle Corporation to save his father.

With 20 story rope climbs, 70 mph escalators, 100 foot free dives, and a strongman event, will Roland’s homegrown nanotech be able to keep up with the other cutting edge contestants?  Roland and his tiny team will have to dig deeper than they ever thought possible as they try to find solutions on the fly for overcoming these harrowing obstacles.

Weapons are authorized!  Episode 3 adds another method for the contestants to dish out even more brutal punishments than before: futuristic weapons.  Roland unleashes his carbon alloy weapon, using his mind to uniquely shape it for every situation.

There’s more than just the race!  Skylar’s latest plugin puts Roland undercover in Pinnacle’s most secure facility.  One false move on this clandestine operation will most certainly put Roland in a small cell with Pinnacle only too happy to throw away the key.

C. S. Lewis in Context

Although C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) achieved a level of popularity as a fiction writer, literary scholars have tended to view him as a minor figure working in an insignificant genre – science fiction – or have pigeon-holed him as a Christian apologist and moralist. In C. S. Lewis in Context, Doris T. Myers places his work in the literary milieu of his times and the public context of language rather than in the private realm of personal habits or relationships. A central debate early in the twentieth century concerned the nature of language: was it primarily objective and empirical, as Charles K. Ogden and Ivor A. Richards argued in The Meaning of Meaning, or essentially metaphorical and impressionistic, the approach of Owen Barfield in Poetic Diction? Lewis espoused the latter theory and integrated it into the purpose and style of his fiction. Myers therefore argues that he was not “out of touch with his time,” as some critics claim, but a twentieth-century literary figure engaged in the issues of his day. By approaching Lewis’s fiction through the linguistic controversies of his day, Myers not only develops a new framework within which to evaluate his works, but also clarifies his literary contributions. This valuable study will appeal to literary and linguistic scholars as well as to general enthusiasts of Lewis’s fiction

Creative Writing

All writers are familiar with terms like plot, suspense, conflict and character. They may be less familiar with intertextuality, anachrony, and fabula, and they may be even less confident in achieving the effects these terms refer to. This book defines fictional techniques and guides the potential writer in their use. It may spark off ideas for stories and novels and provide first-aid for failing stories. A story’s ending may come as a surprise to the reader, suspense may have the reader on the edge of the seat, and conflict may lead to unbearable excitement. It is the job of the writer to create these effects and this book illustrates how it is done.

The book is for students doing creative writing in higher education, at “A” level, and it will be essential reading for anyone interested in writing fiction.

Keeper of the Lost Cities

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world—before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. And Sophie has a secret—she’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and almost instantly she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
     But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.
