Explanation of the Book:

Max Bowman is a hero for today’s America—mostly because he has absolutely no idea what he’s doing. Years after being tossed on the trash heap by the CIA, Max is just getting by—and fine with it. Who cares if his future is in the rearview mirror? As long as he’s got a Jack Daniels in his hand and his creatively-foul-mouthed singer girlfriend on his arm, why shake things up? Then his old Agency boss shows up with a job that’s way above his paygrade—tracking down the truth about a war hero who was killed in Afghanistan. Because some people think this dead man isn’t so dead. Max treats it as a paycheck and a big fat waste of time. Until that house explodes. And a guy who looks a lot like the hero of a popular ‘60s TV Western puts a target on his forehead. Oh, and then there’s that secret para-military outfit in Montana, which wants to end his assignment in the most unpleasant way possible. It all happens in DARK SKY, a sardonic spin on the traditional thriller and the beginning of Max Bowman’s hilarious and harrowing misadventures.

On March 10th, when Athena paid a study visit in Turkey, Sakarya University, after the morning conference she sent the last message to Sanny: "Happy birthday. Let the magic combination of three colour your existence and space. " He continued on calling her, but she had no wish to answer the calls. She was so grateful to him for all the perception of the world he helped her to experience. She loved him so much for this shake, conversion, awakening. No malice towards him she ever felt. Even pain in her heart seemed to have such a value and spirit. She just blessed him for finding her... That he donated a little time to her. That he shared. Gave her this suffering. That he raised her and led. Holding her hands tight like babys... It was 23rd March, the day, when Sanny wrote his first message on that dating site. It was the same next years March 23rd when Athena said goodbye to Sanny... But only mentally she got apart from him, never in her heart. She hoped them to meet in some deeper space some time... Book also has a Lithuanian version.

Explanation of the Book:

Bob Mizon, one of the world’s best known campaigners against the veil of light pollution that has taken away the starry sky from most of the world’s population, takes readers to a hundred places in the UK and the USA where the wonders of the night sky might still be enjoyed in perfect or near-perfect night skies. Visiting small hotels and simple campsites, and savoring vast dark-sky reserves where the night sky is actively protected, The Million-Star Hotel celebrates the black skies of yesteryear – which may become a reality for more and more of us as modern technology reins in lighting and puts it only where needed. How can you prepare for your stay beneath the stars? What astronomy can you do during the daytime? What kind of equipment will you need? Questions such as these are answered, and if town dwellers return inspired – and, Bob hopes, also inspired to look with fresh eyes at their own local lighting – there is enough information here for them to equip themselves for some urban astronomy too.

Explanation of the Book:

A fascinating history of the most secretive and unsung branch of the US military’s Special Forces, from World War II through Desert Storm Very little is known about USAF Special Operations—yet their exploits have been as daring and their achievements as remarkable as anything accomplished by their brother warriors. Since World War II, these ultra-secretive “air commandos” have routinely performed the near-impossible, undertaking missions that typically carry them across enemy lines. From secretly inserting covert operatives into North Korea and participating in clandestine CIA operations in Vietnam and Cambodia to providing air support for partisans in Nazi-occupied France and rescuing dozens of downed fliers trapped deep in enemy territory, these courageous airmen have done the jobs that no one else could do, often in the most technologically advanced war machinery the Air Force has at its disposal. Sometimes called “ravens” or “carpetbaggers,” the air commandos have a history that has long been buried beneath layers of official cover stories, rumors, and deceptions—until now. An expert in military affairs, Orr Kelly has already written what many believe to be the definitive history of the US Navy SEALs (Brave Men, Dark Waters). Now, he turns his attention to this unsung branch of the military’s Special Forces, relating a true story of courage, skill, and commitment that spans decades. With uncompromising honesty, he explores both the triumphs (Project 9 in Burma) and the disasters (the failed rescue of hostages in Iran) of these incomparable heroes of the sky, who have never sought recognition or glory.
