Disease — specifically infectious disease — is what eventually kills the overwhelming majority of us. In fact, it’s amazing that it doesn’t get us sooner: we fight off millions of disease-causing germs every day. So how come we’re not dead yet? In this lively and accessible book, Idan Ben-Barak tells us why. He explores the immune system and what keeps it running, how germs are destroyed, and why we develop immunities to certain disease-causing agents. He also examines the role of antibiotics and vaccines, and looks at what the future holds for our collective chances of not being dead. This is entertaining and thoughtful science writing to inspire the student interested in a career in medicine or immunology, or to inform the reader who just wants to understand more about their body while having a laugh along the way.

They are coming back to life, but they come back different - they stutter and their reactions to everything are slower.

But as their numbers keep on growing, so does the discomfort of the living people in the community. When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, her best friend and star of the football team, Adam, has conflicting emotions. And when Tommy decides to try out for the football team, it sets off a chain of events that escalates into deadly violence.

One hundred mental patients are brutally massacred in the frigid cold of a Russian forest as they wait for a mysterious light coming down from the night sky. Their deaths are never spoken of again. More than three decades later, directors at mental hospitals in California are stunned when 100 patients—comatose for years—suddenly "wake up" and speak of a person called "The Commander" who will lead them to a place where they will be taken from Earth. One person may hold the answers—a severely mentally-ill homeless man whose knowledge of astronomy, physics and mathematics is not only more advanced than Einstein and Tesla, but can summon superhuman abilities in the blink of an eye. Taken in and protected by a small team of mental health physicians, a brilliant astrophysicist, a derelict naval officer, and a renowned Ancient Aliens theorist, this freakishly gifted person called "Doogie" warns that time is running out; that the "creators" are already on their way to Earth. They will arrive within weeks. The chosen hundred must be ready, but like 30 years ago, a new threat makes its presence menacingly clear. A xenophobic Senator with a horrific secret and the authority to launch military strikes is plotting to destroy an extraterrestrial visitation of any kind. . .even if it means the deaths of thousands, if not the utter destruction of the entire West Coast.

Official hero of the great rebellion, Owen Deathstalker fought impossible odds to throw down the Empress Lionstone XIV and destroy the corrupt Empire. That should have been enough to be feted, honored, and finally retired. Unfortunately, the new Parliament has some different ideas. There's no rest for a Deathstalker. As newly appointed Imperial bounty hunter, Owen tracks down the most dangerous war criminals. His current target: Valentine Wolfe, depraved right hand of the Empress and so-called "butcher of Virimonde." Valentine’s latest atrocities are both staggering and deeply personal to Owen, but revenge may have to wait. Humanity faces extermination from enemies new and old, while the fledgling Parliament struggles to maintain control. Worse still, something is alive and beginning to stir in the Darkvoid. The odds are stacked against him again, but Owen Deathstalker will have to face his destiny one more time...or forever damn the future of mankind. Deathstalker: Honor is the fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's beloved space opera series.
