Honor and Obligation
by David Michael Martin
The second book in the Hunter’s Universe saga.
An unknown jungle on a foreign planet can be a dangerous place with menacing creatures all around; creatures that could spell doom for an unsuspecting solider. It can be even more treacherous without weapons. Add total nakedness and the possibility of survival almost vanishes. Yet if Delwyn Marsch is forced to go through the Adulthood Ceremony of his newly adopted world, this is what he faces.
Surely Kidahin’s clan will accept Delwyn’s adulthood status but what if they don’t? How can she protect her Warleader, Delwyn, from all the pitfalls he may face during this ceremony without violating this ritual? She needs a plan and fast.
A Gardener's Guide to Politics
by Eva Kosinski
A Gardener's Guide to Politics is a look at our current political climate from the unusual perspective of gardening. The gardener (or the government) makes decisions and takes action based on the environment he must grow in, the conditions inherited from nature, changing micro-climate, predators and parasites that threaten success, and the needs of the crops and flowers he wants to cultivate. There are far more parallels than you might expect. For those who feel politics is unrelated to their daily lives and the natural order, this book is a thoughtful look at just how little our behaviors differ from those in the natural world around us, in life, in gardening, and in politics.
