Thunderstrike & Other Stories
Get started in the fantastic Worlds of Warhammer with this great value book. Enjoy a collection of tales from the Mortal Realms, covering a host of races and factions and providing a taste of the flavour of the Age of Sigmar. The city of Excelsis is in mourning. Thousands were slain in the great greenskin siege, the streets of a proud civilisation reduced to bloodied pits. The sheer might of Sigmar’s allies may have won the battle, but the war between Order and Destruction is far from over, and out in the Ghurish wildlands a new evil lurks. When Freeguild captain Holger Beck and his regiment are ambushed on patrol, there is no time to fathom the cunning intellect of their foe – all they learn is terror. Broken and beaten, Beck latches on to a retinue of Thunderstrike Stormcasts led by Knight-Relictor Actinus, a formidable warrior under whose intrepid shadow Beck falls. Together, mortal soldier and divine warrior must strike forth into the dark heart of Ghur to destroy their enemy, before it takes advantage of the weakened city. But their trials have only just begun, and when even the indomitable Thunderstrike’s mettle is tested, what chance is there for a human soul to claw at victory? This anthology contains the thrilling novella Thunderstrike by Richard Strachan, and a host of short stories that showcase the many warring armies that exist within the worlds of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Politics and the Order of Love

release date: Aug 15, 2008
Politics and the Order of Love
Augustine—for all of his influence on Western culture and politics—was hardly a liberal. Drawing from theology, feminist theory, and political philosophy, Eric Gregory offers here a liberal ethics of citizenship, one less susceptible to anti-liberal critics because it is informed by the Augustinian tradition. The result is a book that expands Augustinian imaginations for liberalism and liberal imaginations for Augustinianism. Gregory examines a broad range of Augustine’s texts and their reception in different disciplines and identifies two classical themes which have analogues in secular political theory: love—and related notions of care, solidarity, and sympathy—and sin—as well as related notions of cruelty, evil, and narrow self-interest. From an Augustinian point of view, Gregory argues, love and sin constrain each other in ways that yield a distinctive vision of the limits and possibilities of politics. In providing a constructive argument for Christian participation in liberal democratic societies, Gregory advances efforts to revive a political theology in which love’s relation to justice is prominent. Politics and the Order of Love will provoke new conversations for those interested in Christian ethics, moral psychology, and the role of religion in a liberal society.

All My Tomorrows
No experience is worse than being a parent who has suffered the death of a child. It's so horrible that the English language doesn't have a word for it. Chris Gregory, a nineteen-year-old Freshman at Loyola University New Orleans, had a girlfriend. He was rushing a fraternity and although he had had a rough first semester, he told his parents he was certain he was finally getting "this college thing right." One night during a casual after-dinner conversation about driver's licenses, Chris's parents learned that he had opted to become an organ donor. "What am I going to do with my organs after I'm dead? And besides," he added with a grin, "who wouldn't want this body?" Life's funny. One day, some kid is a happy-go-lucky college freshman, healthy as a horse, and another guy is standing at death's door. And then in a matter of hours, they somehow trade places. Chris collapsed and died of an aneurysm with no warning. Five people who had been near death lived to see another day because they received Chris's organs. Eric Gregory, his father, wrote this book to chronicle this miracle of science and how meeting these recipients of his son's organs filled a special need in their hearts that few outside the organ donation community can understand.

Functionalized Poly(methionine): Methods and Applications

Functionalized Poly(methionine): Methods and Applications
Polypeptide materials enjoy a wide breadth of realized and potential applications in the fields of biotechnology, medicine, tissue engineering and drug delivery. Key to enabling the progress of this field is developing and applying new synthetic methodologies that allow access to more complex materials easily and efficiently. As polypeptide materials are being used in evermore complex systems to tackle increasingly difficult problems, flexible rapid syntheses are required. This dissertation will recount the development and application of new methodology for the functionalization of thioether residues in methionine (Met) containing polypeptides. A new method for the alkylation of Met residues by ring opening of epoxides under acidic protic conditions was developed, providing alkyl-methionine (MetR) sulfoniums. This method was amenable for introducing large functional groups such as glyco and oligoethylene glycol (OEG). The chemoselectivity of this transformation was investigated; selective thioether functionalization was found to be possible in the presence of nucleophilic residues such as lysine and cysteine. The sulfoniums were found to be stable under physiological conditions and in the presence of nucleophiles. The high stability of these epoxide adducts in comparison to other MetR derivatives was further explored. The course of the reaction of MetR with sulfur containing nucleophiles was found to be easily controlled by proper choice of substrate and conditions. For these and other sulfoniums, selective demethylation of certain MetR derivatives to functional R-HCys products could be achieved. This reaction was used to introduce a wide degree of structural diversity into Met containing polypeptides. These new methodologies were used to study the effect of certain molecular features on the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of OEG-HCys derivatives. A library of OEG-HCys polypeptides was synthesized, allowing the effect of three different structural features on the LCST to be systematically analyzed. This allowed predictable tuning of the LCST of these materials by modification of sidechain structure and polypeptide conformation.

Inferno! Volume 4
Packed full of tales by Black Library authors old and new, this is an essential short fiction collection that will be sure to thrill any reader. Inferno! Volume 4 showcases some of the best new fiction from across Games Workshop’s many universes: from the vast, unexplored wilds of the Mortal Realms, to the unforgiving hive world of Necromunda, through to the sprawling warzones of the 41st millennium. Included in this anthology: The Karsharat Abomination by George Mann The steadfast Inquisitor Sabbathiel and her retinue have come to the blighted world of Karsharat. Along with Interrogator Bledheim and Brondel the squat, Sabbathiel delves into an abandoned Ecclesiarchy outpost where a cabal of hereteks are said to be devising an abominable weapon. The dark horrors they discover within will prove to be a true test of the inquisitor’s fortitude. At the Sign of the Brazen Claw: Part Four – The Sorcerer’s Tale by Guy Haley As the storm rages outside the Brazen Claw inn in Shyish, the travellers continue to share their stories. In this instalment, the eccentric sorcerer Pludu Quasque, who hails from the mysterious realm of Hysh, tells of his study of Light magic and how he came to be exiled from this realm. The tale soon turns to Quasque’s reasons for coming to Shyish, and the other travellers learn that the fateful storm is more portentous than they could have possibly imagined. The Manse of Mirrors by Nick Horth After the events of The Silver Shard, intrepid aelven treasure hunter Shevanya Arclis finds herself in the gloomy free city of Lethis, deep within the realm of Death. Presented with a tantalising opportunity and a group of less-than-savoury accomplices, she ventures into the manse of the legendary, and long-deceased, Phylebius Crade to plunder the treasures held within. But is there more to the wizard’s wondrous collection than meets the eye? Plus many more stories from both new and existing Black Library authors.
