This book is a historical novel by the American classical scholar, Frank Frost Abbot. It deals with the lives of the Roman common people, their language and literature, their occupations and amusements, and with their social, political and economic conditions. We are interested in the common people of Rome because they made the Roman Empire what it was. They carried the Roman standards to the Euphrates and the Atlantic: they lived abroad as traders, farmer and soldiers to Romanize the provinces. Or they stayed at home, working in different professions to supply the needs of the capital.
Available since: 11/26/2019.

    Viceroy. It’s not a term Sam would have ever thought would apply to them. But for some reason, the sovereign of Westhold seems to trust Sam with his life—and with the legacy the crazy, not-so-human firebird is building. But none of that matters if Sam can’t conquer their fear and insecurities and keep from going feral. 
    Fin and Emerson just won’t give up on Sam and stay away from the cur, where they’ll be safe. And when Sam is forced to confront the alpha and the shifter pack who has tormented Sam since birth, all Sam’s worst fears come true as the hunter faces the risk of losing a mate they were never brave enough to claim. 
    Author’s Note: 
    I love reverse harem, but I got sick of reading the same old tropes. In my books you will find atypical characters and varied sexuality. In general, you probably won’t find many alpha males or fainting females, and relationships may have a more poly feel. The Not Quite series is a harem/reverse harem urban fantasy series of novellas (between 35,000-45,000 words) and contains the following: 
    *adult language, and lots of it 
    *moderate levels of violence/gore/action 
    *graphic sexual situations 
    *polyamory/ multiple lovers 
    *LBGTQ and straight themes (the main character is intersex and will have both male and female lovers, and this is a harem, so expect M/F, M/M, F/F, MMMFF etc.) 
    *as usual, my characters all have their own emotional scars. This means the books MAY contain mentions of abuse, unpleasant situations, etc. Please do not read if you are triggered by things like this. This book in particular includes references to past abuse or mistreatment, physical, mental, and sexual. 
    *occasional “cliff-hangers” or lead-ins to the next book may occur, though generally at least one major plot arc shows completion or at the very least, forward progress. 
    *word count does not include teaser chapters or other fluff material at the end.

    First in the Aces High series—a military reference of the fighter pilots who had five or more confirmed victories while serving in the Royal Air Force. Introduced by the French quite early in World War I, the term “ace” was used to describe a pilot credited with five or more aerial victories. But in the United Kingdom, the term was never officially recognized. Becoming an ace was partly luck, especially considering the campaigns in which they flew and the areas of combat. There are three distinct kinds of aces: the defensive ace, the offensive ace, and the night fighter. This book is a revised collection of the biographies of the highest scoring Allied fighter pilots of World War II—including those with the confirmed claims of shooting down five aircraft and those pilots with lower scores but whose wartime careers prove them worthy of inclusion. All details of their combat are arranged in tabular form. Included are a selection of photographs from hitherto private collections. “There are some authors whose name alone is sufficient reason to but a book, and Christopher Shores is surely one of these . . . By profession a chartered surveyor, he served in the Royal Air Force in the 1950s so his writing bears the stamp of authenticity.” —HistoryNet

    Nietzsche and the Becoming of Life

    “This exciting collection of essays challenges existing interpretations of several key moments of Nietzsche’s philosophy.” —Paul Patton, Scientia Professor of Philosophy, University of New South Wales, Australia   Throughout his writing career, Nietzsche advocated the affirmation of earthly life as a way to counteract nihilism and asceticism. This volume takes stock of the complexities and wide-ranging perspectives that Nietzsche brings to bear on the problem of life’s becoming on Earth by engaging various interpretative paradigms reaching from existentialist to Darwinist readings of Nietzsche.   In an age in which the biological sciences claim to have unlocked the deepest secrets and codes of life, the essays in this volume propose a more skeptical view. Life is both what is closest and what is furthest from us, because life experiments through us as much as we experiment with it, because life keeps our thinking and our habits always moving, in a state of recurring nomadism. Nietzsche’s philosophy is perhaps the clearest expression of the antinomy contained in the idea of “studying” life and in the Socratic ideal of an “examined” life and remains a deep source of wisdom about living.
