The best military and scientific minds on Earth band together in a desperate attempt to preserve an alien society from the deadly force heading for its home planet.

Omega: an apocalyptic rumour from the Eastern Front. Omega: something that will alter all the strategic calculations of the Earth's great military blocs. Omega: the code name for a weapon that may well bring doomsday with it. But if Omega is indeed the agent that will destroy the world, that world is not our own. For this is a timeline in which World War Two never truly ended: a timeline in which Hitler died in a plane crash, Britain joined Germany in its battle against Communist Russia, and the present is an age of intermittent, but deadly, armed conflict between the USSR, the European Alliance, and the USA. The frontier regions are radioactive wastelands, nuclear winter threatens catastrophe, global confrontation could erupt again any time - and that's before Omega is taken into account...This is the reality experienced by Owen Meredith when an accident forces his consciousness from the England we know into the mind of his cognate self in that other darker, Europe. Switching back and forth between being plain Owen Meredith and troubled Major Owain Maredudd, Owen is faced not only with a Cold War going Hot, but with a deep crisis of identity. Who is he? Whose twisted destiny is he treading? Did the ordinary domestic life he remembers ever even take place? Perhaps the universe of Owain and Omega is merely a symptom of mental illness - but if so, why is it so urgently tangible?

John Goldberger has been collecting and studying vintage watches for over 25 years, which means he's spent many happy hours at jewelers' shops, flea markets, conventions and auctions around the world. His comprehensive and detailed illustrated book on the Omega family of Swiss timepieces is an indispensable asset to others who share his obsession, and to those who would love to--to armchair collectors. Omega Watches covers the history of more than 240 vintage models, with emphasis on their outer aspects--including the shape and outline of each case and its dial and movements, which are governing features for the collector, as well as clues to exceptional internal design. Goldberg has created a beautiful visual guide to Omega timepieces from the classic pocketwatch to the modern chronograph. Starting with the first models of the past century, Omega Watches displays the beauty, complexity and the collectibility of classic watches such as the Speedmaster, first produced in 1957, and the Seamaster, both of which are still produced today. All examples depicted are from private collections.

Two very different men with a tumultuous history must overcome challenges from all sides and see past their society's rules to realize they are destined for one another. Raised to become Alpha of the Yafenack pack, Samuel Goodwin dedicates his life to studying shifter laws, strengthening his body, and learning from his father. But despite his best efforts, Samuel can't relate to people, including those he's supposed to lead. When Samuel meets Korban Keller, the son of a neighboring pack's Alpha, he reacts with emotion instead of intellect for the first time in his life. Resenting the other shifter for throwing him off-balance, Samuel first tries to intimidate Korban and then desperately avoids him. What he can't do is forget Korban's warm eyes, easy smile, and happy personality. When a battle between their fathers ends tragically, Samuel struggles to lead his pack while Korban works to break through Samuel's emotional barriers. Two very different men with a tumultuous history must overcome challenges from all sides and see past their society's rules to realize they are destined for one another.

It's true. Specific fats play a crucial role in protecting us from many serious diseases - from heart disease to cancer to manic-depressive illness. Certain fats also have an impact on such everyday complaints as dry skin, intestinal troubles, and achy joints. The problem for most of us is that we hear only about one or two of these "good fats" and figure that by including some healthy oils in our diets, we're covered. What we don't realize is that by not understanding what makes a "good fat" good, we unknowingly create imbalances in our systems that may lead to these terrible disorders - despite our best intentions. In The Omega-3 Oils, pioneering researcher and physician Dr. Donald Rudin tells us how we can improve our physical and mental health by correcting these imbalances. Dr. Rudin shows how different fats act within our body, and how modern food-processing techniques have stripped a vital family of oils - the Omega-3 fatty acids - out of our food. He discusses his groundbreaking Omega-3 study, in which people suffering from a variety of chronic ailments showed remarkable improvement after taking oil rich in Omega-3, in combination with other healthful supplements. He then shows the connection between Omega intake and a variety of modern-day health concerns, including heart disease, skin problems, reproductive difficulties (in both men and women), pregnancy and breastfeeding, mental health, and the problems we experience as we age. Finally, Dr. Rudin presents the Omega Program to help bring our diet, and our health, back into balance.

Omega, written by astronomer Camille Flammarion (1842?1925), is no less than an epic history of our future?a startling and unforgettable vision of the end of the world. Reasoned scientific speculation combined with probing philosophical inquiry lend credibility and magnitude to this tale of how humankind will physically and culturally evolve over the next several million years. ø The end begins in the twenty-fifth century, when a comet threatens to collide with the earth. The consequences of that frightening cosmic event are far-reaching, setting in motion a series of physical, psychic, and social changes that will profoundly affect the planet and its people far into the future. The earth?s surface drastically transforms over time. Cultures radically alter, collapse, and fade away. Nations rise and fall, species become extinct, and human beings find themselves at the end of the world, alone and changed in fundamental ways. This melancholic, poetic science fiction tale of things to come is as compelling and disturbing today as when it was first written.

A fierce alpha who gets everything he wants, and an omega who only wants to belong… Years ago, shifters and humans were driven from Detroit by a savage hybrid of hyena and reptile created in a government lab. The once-proud city is now in ruins, but Jacob Kross intends to change that. Jake is wealthy, powerful, and an alpha wolf shifter leading one of the largest packs in New Detroit. He is building an alliance to fulfill his late father's dream of reclaiming their territory. Only Jake has a problem. The other pack alphas demand that he produce an heir or lose his place as head of the shifter council. Jake grudgingly agrees, but he rejects any political betrothal to a female from the other packs. If he has to breed, he might as well do it with a male, the gender he prefers between the sheets. Besides, an omega—the result of a genetic shifter mutation that allows a male to carry a child—will guarantee him the heir he needs. Only he never counted on one vulnerable, wide-eyed omega stealing his way into Jake's guarded heart... Gavin is an omega wolf without a pack. He grew up on the streets of New Detroit as a homeless refugee. For him, life has always been a struggle made worse by his inherently submissive nature. So when a wealthy alpha suddenly promises him a huge amount of money to give birth to his heir, Gavin sets aside his reservations and signs the contract. Jacob Kross is just as dominant, fierce, and intense as he imagined. The alpha intends to breed Gavin the old-fashioned way, and that has him both terrified and excited. But as he comes to know Jake, it grows harder to avoid falling in love with the alpha whose ferocity and ambition hides a kind, generous heart. He knows that after he gives Jake an heir, the contract is over, and his time with the alpha is done. Gavin only wants a pack of his own and someone to love him, but politics and Jake's ambitions make that impossible...and time is running out.
