Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Die Aufmerksamkeit der Öffentlichkeit wurde lange durch die Privatsphäre in sozialen Netzwerken und das Tracking der Online-Werbewirtschaft gebunden, weil dies die sichtbare Seite des Verbraucherdatenschutzes ist. Die Beiträge des ersten Bandes der "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung" rücken einen zukunftsweisenden Trend ins Blickfeld der interdisziplinären Verbraucherforschung und der verbraucherpolitischen Akteure: die Informatisierung des Alltags. Im Zentrum der Beiträge steht die Frage, ob und wie die Datensouveränität der Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher unter den Bedingungen des Konsums im Internet, der Nutzung digitaler Dienste und in einer vernetzten Welt erhalten, wiederhergestellt oder gestärkt werden kann.

Mit Beiträgen von

Prof. Dr. Britta Böckmann, Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme und Sebastian Luhn, MSc, Prof. Dr. Georg Borges und Dipl.-Jur. Sascha Adler, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Greveler, Prof. Dr. Artus Krohn-Grimberghe und Prof. Dr. Christoph Sorge.

Reihe "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung"

Mit den "Beiträgen zur Verbraucherforschung" dokumentiert das KVF NRW seine halbjährlichen Workshops, die die Diskussion zwischen Wissenschaft, Politik und Verbraucherorganisationen anregen sollen.

Dieser Band ist das Ergebnis des Workshops von November 2012.

A Lesser Dark (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: There are a thousand ways to die in the desert—desperate outlaws, deadly predators, murderous elements, and betrayal. . .

Kaitar Besh, a veteran scout as legendary for his cynicism as his skills, is ordered to brave the deadly Shy'war-Anquai desert one last time. Escorting Leigh Enderi—a greenhorn Enforcer with a reputation as shady as his own—he soon realizes the ghosts of his past have come to haunt more than his nightmares.

When the mission breaks down in the wake of bitter hatred and mistrust, even Kaitar's fabled skills may not be enough to bring them home again. Stranded in the red wasteland without contact, food, or water, they uncover a betrayal that could bring all they hold dear crumbling to the dust. . . and tear down the wall of lies surrounding them.

The Lost Star Tales (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Wil Litang was the competent, but not ambitious, first mate of the tramp freighter Lost Star. So, when its captain became too ill to make their usual voyage around Azminn's ring of planets, he accepted the job of acting captain with some reluctance. As it turned out, his reluctance was justified. The Lost Star had a mysterious and dangerous past – a past that had caught up with it. Litang and the crew of the Lost Star are soon driven from their comfortable orbit to some of the most dangerous places in the Nine Star Nebula, including the fabled Lost Star itself.

The Bright Black Sea is not your typical space opera. While it has space battles, it's not military SF. While it's a tale of mystery and danger, star empires are not falling, rebels are not fighting desperate battles for freedom, and the fate of the galaxy doesn't hang in the balance. And unlike many science fiction stories which are focused on ideas or a “What ifs?”, the Bright Black Sea is a character focused story, which takes early space opera motifs – space pirates, sentient robots, and rockets – and incorporates them into a modern, episodic novel set in a tiny nebula of nine stars, hundreds of planets and lawless asteroid belts.

For a different type of space adventure, join Captain Litang and the crew of the Lost Star to discover the wonders and dangers of the Nine Star Nebula.

The adventures and misadventures of Wil Litang continue in The Castaways of the Lost Star – the first “episode” of the planned companion volume, The Lost Star's Sea – a new take on the planetary romances of Edgar Rice Burroughs and his kin.

Frankie Jackson Mystery (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: "Fast-paced, entertaining read ... a charming main character and a diverting plot sure to appeal to fans of whodunit novels." -- KIRKUS REVIEW

Last year was one heck of a ride for 12-year old Mary Frances (“Frankie”) Jackson. She was an inning away from becoming the first female all-state middle-school pitcher … until a teammate double-crossed her. Then, she was arrested after she sought revenge against the double-crosser. And to top it off, her dad was banished from the family home after falling off the wagon. Now, she’s been sent to California for the summer to live on a houseboat with her Aunt Roxy. There’s one catch -- she can’t get in trouble or it’s back to New Jersey and juvenile detention camp.
Too bad that days after arriving at the houseboat community, Frankie lands in hot water. Accused of animal cruelty (killing a cat), and with the evidence stacked against her, she has two weeks to prove her innocence. Frankie turns to a houseboat resident, Margie Britt, a washed out 70s TV star who used to solve mysteries on TV.
But as the days pass, Frankie loses faith in Margie and initiates her own investigation. In the process she gets to know all of the eccentrics on the dock. There’s Forgetting Michael, a young disabled man, who forgets things whenever a loud noise goes off; Alice, an 82-year old activist who loves birds and hates cats; and there’s Butch, a German shepherd whose owner has a shady past. Frankie even learns the sad truth about Kay, her accuser.
Ultimately, with help of Margie, Roxy, and her new houseboat friends, Frankie proves her innocence. But more importantly, Frankie learns how to deal with her own anger and frustration from the past year’s events.
I Didn’t Kill Your Cat is a young adult novel with a tough, lovable, heroine and an intriguing setting – the houseboats of Sausalito

The Warfields (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: A Novella
Denver, Colorado

In the rambunctious American west of 1875, Ian Warfield is an English nobleman disguised as a lowly groom with a lumbering English sheepdog named Samson. Chastity O'Roarke is an Irish swindler masquerading as a wealthy widow with a feisty Persian cat named Delilah. Obviously, Ian and Chas are meant for each other.

As the reader might expect, they do fall in love...and fall, and fall, and fall: out of the window of a fashionable Denver mansion, out of the branches of an ornamental tree on the grounds of a rustic estate, down a shaft in a deserted gold mine. Cupid may have wings but these two don't. It's an iffy proposition whether the lovers will wind up at the altar or in the hospital. With Ian and Chas, the course of true love is precipitously vertical--straight down like a dropped rock! Even Samson and Delilah have more sense...or better balance.
