An eleven-year-old, bored with her life, imagines a more exciting one as a secret agent, but when she spends the summer on her aunt's farm, her stories become reality as she stumbles onto a real spy ring.
Max Remy is eleven and bored with her life. Her father went off to Hollywood and ends up married to a movie star and Max is left with her mother who works, works, works all the time. So Max invents Alex Crane, a super spy, and begins to fantasize about the life of a spy. Then horrors: Max's mother sends her off to live with her aunt and uncle on a farm for the entire summer. Dull, you think. But then she stumbles into a real spy ring, and uses her wits to outsmart the evil Mr. Blue. Max Remy is now a card-carrying member of the international organization Spy Force and the adventure has just begun.
Spyforce agents Max and Linden have only a few hours to save the world's spy agencies, gathered together on a remote island for the top secret Annual Spy Awards Night, from being destroyed by a volcanic eruption set off by the evil Mr. Blue.
Who can outsmart the dastardly Mr. Blue? None other than Max Remy, superspy! Can't get enough of Max Remy? She's back, with her friend Linden at her side, and they're off on a new adventure as they hone their spy skills. Now a full-fledged member of Spy Force, Max finds herself up against the sinister Mr. Blue again. In a desperate effort to get the Time and Space Machine for himself, Mr. Blue is attempting to turn the world's children into zombies. Only Max Remy, superspy, can outsmart Mr. Blue and save the world from a terrible, unthinkable fate.
Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction. John Gribbin takes us step by step into an even more bizarre and fascinating place, requiring only that we approach it with an open mind. He introduces the scientists who developed quantum theory. He investigates the atom, radiation, time travel, the birth of the universe, super conductors and life itself. And in a world full of its own delights, mysteries and surprises, he searches for Schrodinger's Cat - a search for quantum reality - as he brings every reader to a clear understanding of the most important area of scientific study today - quantum physics. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat is a fascinating and delightful introduction to the strange world of the quantum - an essential element in understanding today's world.
The Titus Crow novels are adventure horror, full of acts of nobility and heroism, featuring travel to exotic locations and alternate planes of existence as Titus Crow and his faithful companion and record-keeper fight the gathering forces of darkness wherever they arise. The menaces are the infamous and deadly Elder Gods of the work of H.P. Lovecraft. Chthulu and his dark minions are bent on ruling the earth--or destroying it. A few puny humans cannot possibly stand against these otherworldly evil gods, yet time after time, Titus Crow defeats the monsters and drives them back into the dark from whence they came. The Transition of Titus Crow is the second book in the Titus Crow series. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
The book gives a comprehensive introduction for interested general readers, into the development and structure of concepts, ideas and theory formation about the elementary building blocks of matter, the forces with which these particles interact and about the fundamental nature of space itself. Einsteins theory of the cosmos and the recent discovery of the presence of a dark energy which leads to an accelerated expansion of cosmic space, provide the background for the most astonishing recent developments in the search for the origin of space and matter. The String-Theory revolution has led to the notion that nature may not follow one unique set of laws to build worlds, but that innumerable many possible universes may exist, that worlds may be emerging and disappearing like biological species and that our existence may be extraordinarily rare and therefore precious. An introduction to the concept of emergence in self-organizing systems is given to make the connection to the idea that Emergence may be the inherent creative property of space and matter at the quantum level.
