Summary

Israel's prime minister awakens from an apocalyptic nightmare to discover that reality is far scarier: there are only days left to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. 
 
But history will be decided by 35 Israelis manning the Dolphin, a nuclear-armed submarine that can vaporize most of the Middle East in a few hours. 
 
Naval command urgently calls the Dolphin back to shore. 
 
The captain, Daniel Zion, is haunted by a fatal accident on his watch, and the foreboding thought that this may be his last hours with his wife and daughter. 
 
Daniel also learns that the head of the submarine force has recommended to the navy chief that Daniel's deputy, Yisrael, replace him as captain. 
 
The tension between the captain and his deputy only intensifies, with Yisrael's marital problems aggravating his mood. 
 
At the family gathering ("A Picnic Before Doomsday"), we meet some of the Dolphin's crewmembers. 
 
The submariners reflect the complexity of the Israeli society they defend: 
-Ambesa: an Ethiopian-Israeli who is in charge of the submarine's communication systems 
-Bao: a Vietnamese-Israeli whose parents received political asylum from Israel in 1977, who must keep his homosexuality secret from the crew 
-Zvi: an exceptionally talented young man who quietly manages his traumatic past 
-Jacob: an Indian-Israeli in love with a French student 
-Eitan: a Persian-Israeli Jew who is traditionally religious and awkwardly aware that he still has cousins in Tehran 
-Boutros: the first Arab-Christian to serve in Israel's submarine force 
-Samir: a Druze Arabic speaker who serves as the chief engineer 
 
As different as these characters are, they must find enough unity to operate a submarine with over 4,000 switches and valves, costing nearly a billion dollars. 
 
The nuclear-armed Dolphin submarine is the most powerful machine in the Israeli military. Its crewmembers will have to operate the vessel in enemy waters that will test their nerves. 
 
The TV pilot is based on Part I of the military thriller "The Last Israelis."

    The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche became one of the most influential thinkers of the nineteenth century. Nietzsche's utterance 'God is dead', his insistence that the meaning of life is to be found in purely human terms, and his doctrine of the Superman and the will to power were all later seized upon and unrecognisably twisted by, among others, Nazi intellectuals. The works of Friedrich Nietzsche have fascinated readers around the world ever since the publication of his first book more than a hundred years ago.

    When a young and elegant female colleague comes to rent a room in his flat, Stephen Williamson can’t wait to rummage through her lingerie and try them on. Kerry Carfax is oblivious to the fact her landlord secretly dresses in his tenants’ panties and bra and is unaware he is a closet sissy with fantasies of being humiliated by young, sexy women.

Will Stephen take the leap and realise his deep fantasies could become a reality in the presence of this young strong-willed woman and her friends? Will he ask her to be his Sissy Mistress or will he return to his life of watching and fantasising? Possibly he may have no choice. Read ‘Sissy Landlord’ and find out, now.

    Let's face it. 
     
    About seventy-five percent of the world is covered in water - and of that water nearly ninety-seven percent of it can be found in the sea. Maritimers will tell you that there is a story for every wave that has ever washed upon the shoreline. 
     
    Here are seven of them. 
     
    "In the Dark and the Deep" offers a very haunting yarn of World War 2 convoy duty and a sailor who made and kept a terrible bargain. 
     
    "Harry's Mermaid" introduces you to a group of homeless men who catch something that MIGHT be a mermaid. If that doesn't tell you enough about this story just try and imagine what Steinbeck's CANNERY ROW would read like if it had been written by HP Lovecraft. 
     
    "I Know Why The Waters of the Sea Taste of Salt" is a tale of an Okinawa-based Japanese Air Force suicide pilot and his encounter with a sea monster - of sorts. 
     
    "Finbar's Story" is a dark fantasy tale of the deeper currents that eddy and flow within the deep quiet currents of a man's cold heart. 
     
    "The Woman Who Lost Her Tooth From Laughing Too Loudly At The Sea" is a quiet little fable of salt water, tears and regret. 
     
    "Between You-Know-Who and the Deep Dark Blue" is a story of the last bargain on earth. 
     
    This collection begins with a bargain and ends with a bargain - which sounds like a heck of a bargain to me.
