In the near future, the synthesization of dark matter makes time travel a reality. Dan Webber and his son guide wealthy hunters 100 million years back in time where Tyrannosaurs rule and Velociraptors scavenge. New understandings of physics alleviate the once-honored fear of altering the future by new actions committed in the past. But when an anomaly interferes with the time machine's programming, Dan and the others find themselves in a life-threatening situation no one has prepared for! Paying homage to the SF classics A Gun for Dinosaur by L. Sprague de Camp and A Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury, One Dinosaur One Bullet pits six time travelers against vicious dinosaurs in the prehistoric past. One Dinosaur One Bullet is a novella 22,000 words long.

She focused on her breathing, trying indeed not to hyperventilate, but feeling as though her heart might punch through her chest at any moment. The spot where he had touched her seemed to burn and freeze at the same time. “You don’t remember … do you?” His brown eyes suddenly twinkled and he shook his head. “No? You don’t remember calling on me in the depths of those first awful nights, when you were at your most exposed, when you were at your most vulnerable?” He stroked her long, brown hair with an almost impossible gentleness; it was as though a cool-warm breeze rifled it rather than his fingers. “When it was just you and the boy … alone, scared. Cold. Hungry?” She began to shake her head almost violently, her breathing and heart rate accelerating once again. “Oh, yes,” he said, squinting, smiling. “You did. All the world did. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. You called on many during that time, in those hours and days and weeks after the Flashback—you wouldn’t have been aware of it. And you cursed the One who had brought it upon you … who had taken your husband and your daughter; who had taken so many husbands and daughters. It’s okay. We—we don’t judge. Not like them,” He looked at the hazy sky and the alien-colored lights, at the sun itself which was a white disk in the smoke. “Not like Him.”

She didn’t respond right away but only continued to stroke Ank, who’s stony texture seemed to fascinate her endlessly. At length she said, “Okay,” and turned one of its dials, and the room was immediately filled with the slightly raspy voice of a woman, who continued, “… if you’re heading our way through Shadow Canyon, following that beautiful river, perhaps, be advised there’s a pair of allosaurs operating in that area we call Lenny and Squiggy, and stay alert. And while we’d prefer you didn’t kill them if in fact you are armed, we wouldn’t recommend you get too friendly with them either. Once again this is Radio Free Montana, nestled just south of Paradise at Barley’s Hot Springs Resort, where we’ve got power, lights, food, and about three-hundred survivors who’d love nothing more than to meet you. But be advised as always: if you’re a marauder or a carpetbagger, you won’t like what we’ve prepared for you. So take a little advice from Bella Ray and don’t even try it. And on that it’s another round of AC/DC … for those struggling to get here even now, we salute you!”

After a bestselling and acclaimed diversion into fiction, Chuck Klosterman, author of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, returns to the form in which he’s been spectacularly successful with a collection of essays about our consumption of pop culture and sports. Q: What is this book about? A: Well, that’s difficult to say. I haven’t read it yet—I’ve just picked it up and casually glanced at the back cover. There clearly isn’t a plot. I’ve heard there’s a lot of stuff about time travel in this book, and quite a bit about violence and Garth Brooks and why Germans don’t laugh when they’re inside grocery stores. Ralph Nader and Ralph Sampson play significant roles. I think there are several pages about Rear Window and college football and Mad Men and why Rivers Cuomo prefers having sex with Asian women. Supposedly there’s a chapter outlining all the things the Unabomber was right about, but perhaps I’m misinformed. Q: Is there a larger theme? A: Oh, something about reality. “What is reality,” maybe? No, that’s not it. Not exactly. I get the sense that most of the core questions dwell on the way media perception constructs a fake reality that ends up becoming more meaningful than whatever actually happened. Also, Lady Gaga. Q: Should I read this book? A: Probably. Do you see a clear relationship between the Branch Davidian disaster and the recording of Nirvana’s In Utero? Does Barack Obama make you want to drink Pepsi? Does ABBA remind you of AC/DC? If so, you probably don’t need to read this book. You probably wrote this book. But I suspect everybody else will totally love it, except for the ones who totally hate it.

Any self-respecting big game hunter owns--or should own--Dr. Kevin Robertson's The Perfect Shot, for hunting African animals, and its sister volume, Craig Boddington's The Perfect Shot North America. These two books have become invaluable for the traveling sportsman and sportswoman seeking to become familiar with shot placement, habits, and suitable firearm choices for hunting many of the most popular mammals throughout the two continents. Safari Press has now teamed up with notable author and international big-game hunter Philip Massaro to bring you a volume on the ultimate hunting adventure: The Perfect Shot for Dinosaurs. Bored with the Big Five? Finding grizzly bears ho-hum? Let Massaro help you prepare for the ultimate big-game quarry: prehistoric dinosaurs that have survived to this day. The Perfect Shot for Dinosaurs covers twenty dinosaur species, their habits and physiology, hunting methods, and the proper choice of firearm for each hunting scenario, and, of course, there's a ghost view that exposes the vitals for each. Massaro's extensive pursuit of the varying dinosaur species has given him an insight into hunting these terrible lizards, and his experiences will aid you in your own pursuits. Renowned artist Laurie O'Keefe has provided detailed drawings, highlighting the vital organs and aiding the would-be dinosaur hunter by giving real-world information on shot placement. From the mighty Mosasaur and horrific Quetzalcoatlus to the more popular Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and, yes, even the Tyrannosaurus Rex, all are covered within the covers of The Perfect Shot for Dinosaurs. With a foreword and contributions from controversial dinosaur expert Jarrett M. Lane, The Perfect Shot for Dinosaurs debunks the K-T 66 extinction myth, and sheds light onto the actual biological workings of the various dinosaurs. Massaro draws upon his experiences as a ballistician and dinosaur hunter to recommend cartridge and bullet choices, as well as covering the gamut of dinosaur-worthy firearms. A must-have for any trophy room, hunting camp, den, or bathroom, The Perfect Shot for Dinosaurs is a tongue-in-cheek look at big-game hunting. And now that Donald Trump Jr. was seen on You Tube with a Stegosaurus he had killed on a recent African safari, this guide has become essential for your pursuit of the Dinosaur Grand Slam! Should you actually have the courage to take on one of these terrible lizards, this guide will not only become invaluable when embarking on the ultimate big-game hunt of a lifetime . . . it might just save your life! Be sure to get you copy so that you can make a clean kill on your next hunt!

On opening day of the new baseball season a small model-kit airplane flies down from the stands and buzzes the mound, where a decorated veteran pilot is about to throw out the first ball. The toy plane is the exact replica of the one flown by the war hero. Everyone laughs, thinking it's a prank or a publicity stunt. Until it explodes, killing dozens. Seconds later a swarm of killer drones descend upon the picnicked crowd, each one carrying a powerful bomb. All across the country artificial intelligence drive systems in cars, commuter trains and even fighter planes go out of control. The death toll soars as the machines we depend upon every day are turned into engines of destruction. Joe Ledger and the Department of Military Sciences go on the hunt for whoever is controlling these machines, but the every step of the way they are met with traps and shocks that strike to the very heart of the DMS. No one is safe. Nowhere is safe. Enemies old and new rise as America burns. Joe Ledger and his team are back in Jonathan Maberry's seventh book in the series. They begin a desperate search for the secret to this new technology and the madmen behind it. But before they can close in the enemy virus infects Air Force One. The president is trapped aboard as the jet heads toward the heart of New York City. It has become PREDATOR ONE.

All the official reports say they are dead - extinct since the late '80s, when a fed named Jameson Arkeley nailed the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him. But the evidence proves otherwise. When a state trooper named Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the night, it is Arkeley who gets the assignment - who else? He's been expecting such a call. Sure, it's been years since any signs of an attack, but Arkeley knows what most people don't: there is one left. In an abandoned asylum she is rotting, plotting and biding her time in a way that only the undead can. But the worst thing is the feeling that the vampires want more than just Caxton's blood. They want her for a reason, one she can't guess; a reason her sphinxlike partner knows but won't say; a reason she has to find out or die trying. Now there are only 13 bullets between Caxton and Arkeley and the vampires. There are only 13 bullets between us, the living, and them, the damned.

The essential tool kit to achieve breakthrough sales performance improvements. Numbers don’t lie: 40 percent of all salespeople miss their targets each year. How can sales managers ensure their teams are doing everything possible? The key lies in benchmarking, which is not new for finance or manufacturing but rarely gets applied to sales. Making the Number will teach executives to embrace data-driven decision making and rely less on gut instinct. Comparing a sales force to those of relevant peers leads to many opportunities to improve performance. The authors take readers through their five-step methodology for sales benchmarking, showing how to select metrics; gather, compute, and compare internal and external data; and then actually use the data. Making the Number includes case studies of sales benchmarking in action. For example, find out how Discover Financial Services plays David to the Goliaths of MasterCard and Visa. Whether you’re a sales rep, a manager, or a CEO, this book will show you a better way to make your number.
