Five short novels by five masters of military science fiction. It’s a war out there. In these pulse-pounding tales, the best (or worst) soldiers in the galaxy are pitted against powerful aliens on distant battlefields. Never-before-published stories about monsters, deadly combat tech, treachery, and honor: ´´Big Plush´´ by Aaron Allston (a novella from the Action Figures series) - The Dollgangers, artificial people made in mankind´s image, take up arms in a desperate bid to win their freedom. ´´Comrades in Arms´´ by Kevin J. Anderson - A damaged cyborg soldier and an enemy alien fighter turn their backs on the war and try to escape. But the human and alien governments can´t tolerate the two deserters working together, so they join forces to hunt them down. ´´Shores of the Infinite´´ by Loren L. Coleman (a novella from the ICAS File series) - Separated from command & control, Combat Assault Suit troopers force a beachhead to liberate a new planet from the cyborg threat. ´´The Black Ship´´ by B.V. Larson (a mech novella from the Imperium Series) - A human settlement on the deadliest planet ever colonized clings to life...but today new invaders are coming down from the stars. ´´Out There´´ by Michael A. Stackpole - The Qian have discovered humanity and welcomed them into their star-spanning empire. The benefits they offer humanity are many, and they don´t want much in return: just the best human pilots available to take apart a most diabolical enemy. 1. Language: English.

A sharp, witty, and hugely entertaining debut novel, The Devil Wears Prada is The Nanny Diaries set in the world of high fashion. Welcome to the dollhouse, baby! When Andrea first sets foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She´s never heard of the world´s most fashionable magazine, or its feared and fawned-over editor, Miranda Priestly. But she´s going to be Miranda´s assistant, a job millions of girls would die for. A year later, she knows altogether too much: That it´s a sacking offence to wear anything lower than a three-inch heel to work. But that there´s always a fresh pair of Manolos for you in the accessories cupboard. That Miranda believes Hermes scarves are disposable, and you must keep a life-time supply on hand at all times. That eight stone is fat. That you can charge cars, manicures, anything at all to the Runway account, but you must never, ever, leave your desk, or let Miranda´s coffee get cold. And that at 3 a.m. on a Sunday, when your boyfriend´s dumping you because you´re always at work, and your best friend´s just been arrested, if Miranda phones, you jump. Most of all, Andrea knows that Miranda is a monster who makes Cruella de Ville look like a fluffy bunny. But also that this is her big break, and it´s going to be worth it in the end. Isn´t it? 1.

Long before the specter of terrorism haunted the public imagination, a serial bomber stalked the streets of 1950s New York. The race to catch him would give birth to a new science called criminal profiling. Grand Central, Penn Station, Radio City Music Hall - for almost two decades, no place was safe from the man who signed his anonymous letters "FP" and left his lethal devices in phone booths, storage lockers, even tucked into the plush seats of movie theaters. His victims were left cruelly maimed. Tabloids called him "the greatest individual menace New York City ever faced." In desperation, Police Captain Howard Finney sought the help of a little known psychiatrist, Dr. James Brussel, whose expertise was the criminal mind. Examining crime scene evidence and the strange wording in the bomber´s letters, he compiled a portrait of the suspect down to the cut of his jacket. But how to put a name to the description? Seymour Berkson - a handsome New York socialite, protégé of William Randolph Hearst, and publisher of the tabloid The Journal-American - joined in pursuit of the Mad Bomber. The three men hatched a brilliant scheme to catch him at his own game. Together they would capture a monster and change the face of American law enforcement. This program includes a prologue read by the author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Berkrot. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/002461de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
