Alexander the Great: Student of Aristotle, Descendant of Heroes

Volume 0 of in60Learning

in60Learning is a new range of books designed to provide and overview of people and events of the past in an easily digestible format. With a total print length of around 40 pages, they are meant, as the publisher's name implies, to be read in around 60 minutes. The publisher offered me my choice of books for review. I chose the Alexander biography since he is a character that continues to fascinate me. I've read a lot about him; much of it fictionalized, to be honest, but I thought I still knew enough to judge what the book offered. More

Bound by Destiny

The two young mixed Tah’Narian/human males are both serving on a star ship, and now that their careers are established they're thinking of starting a family. But a couple of seemingly inconsequential encounters on the planet Quai sets off a chain of events that may destroy the couple's plans. More

However, he doesn't really seem to know what he is doing when it comes to turning tricks, and soon lands in hot water. Perhaps Sol isn't who he thinks he is, but then who is he and what is he doing?

The pursuit of his true love takes the aptly-named Randy, along with his younger brother Craig, into the other universe, and into a world very unlike Earth. More
