Exchanging their bodies for machines, these teens will defy expectations, brave danger, and defend civilization. They are The Six. Adam's muscular dystrophy has stolen his mobility, his friends, and in less than a year it will take his life. Virtual reality games are Adam's only escape from his wheelchair. In his alternate world, he can defeat anyone. Running, jumping, scoring touchdowns: Adam is always the hero. Then an artificial intelligence program hacks into Adam's game. Created by Adam's computer-genius father, Sigma has gone rogue, threatening to kill Adam—and the entire human race. Their one chance to stop Sigma is using the technology Adam's dad developed to digitally preserve the mind of his dying son. Along with a select group of other terminally ill teens, Adam becomes one of the Six who have forfeited their failing bodies to inhabit weaponized robots. But with time running short, the Six must learn to manipulate their new mechanical forms and work together to train for epic combat...before Sigma destroys humanity. "Adam is an unusual hero—and he faces a frightening question: Computers can't kill-CAN they? I'm still shaken by the answer. Will the near-future really be this terrifying?"-R.L. Stine, bestselling author of the Fear Street series. Visit Mark at

Perched right on the Mason-Dixon line, tiny Runnymede, Maryland, is ripe with a history almost as colorful as the women who live there—from Celeste Chalfonte, headstrong and aristocratic, who murders for principle and steals her brother’s wife, to Fannie Jump Creighton, who runs a speakeasy right in her own home when hard times come knocking. Then of course, there’re Louise and Julia, the boldly eccentric Hunsenmeir sisters. Wheezie and Juts spend their whole lives in Runnymede, cheerfully quibbling about everything from men to child-rearing to how to drive a car. But they never let small-town life keep them from chasing their biggest dreams—or from being true to who they really are. Sparkling with a perfect combination of sisterhood and sass, Six of One is a richly textured Southern canvas—Rita Mae Brown “at her winning, fondest best”(Kirkus Reviews).

“An X-Files worthy mystery keeps the pages turning,” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) as Parker and his sister do whatever it takes to find their father in this cosmic adventure packed with action from the author of The Ability and Mindscape. Parker and his family share a secret: they can, with the help of advanced technology, communicate between themselves through their thoughts. When Parker, his dad, and sister Emma move to New York three years after his mother’s death, Parker is having a hard time. He misses London and his friends, his father is distracted with his new job, and Emma is looking out for him instead of the other way around. And then Parker’s dad, on the cusp of a technological breakthrough, is kidnapped. Thanks to a message his dad sent telepathically before the signal cut off, Parker is suddenly on a rescue mission. Now Parker and Emma, along with their friend Michael and Polly the pig, must confront the only link to their father—a dangerous man locked away in an asylum. But all the signs point to one thing: the company his dad works for is up to something big. Huge. A perfectly sinister project that threatens far more than Parker’s family. A project called SIX.

Circle of Six is the true story of what is perhaps the most notorious case in the history of the New York Police Department. It details Randy Jurgensen’s determined effort to bring to justice the murderer of Patrolman Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside Harlem’s Mosque #7 in 1972, in the midst of an all-out assault on the NYPD from the Black Liberation Army. The New York of this era was a place not unlike the Wild West, in which cops and criminals shot it out on a daily basis. Despite the mayhem on the streets and the Machiavellian corridors of Mayor Lindsay’s City Hall, Detective Jurgensen single-handedly took on the Black Liberation Army, the Nation of Islam, NYPD brass, and City Hall, capturing Cardillo’s killer, Lewis 17X Dupree. He broke the case with an unlikely accomplice, Foster 2X Thomas, a member of the Nation of Islam who became Jurgensen’s witness. The relationship they formed during the time before trial gave each of the two men a greater perspective of the two sides in the street war and changed them forever. In the end, Jurgensen had to settle for a conviction on other charges, and Dupree served a number of years. The murder case is still officially unsolved. In 2006 the NYPD re-opened the case, and it is once again an active investigation with full media attention. The book has received acclaim from current New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as former Commissioner William Bratton.

Set in the near future, this action-packed YA novel—already optioned by Sony Pictures—will take readers out of this world and on a quest to become one of six teens sent on a mission to Jupiter’s moon. This is the next must-read for fans of Illuminae and The Martian. When Leo and Naomi are drafted, along with twenty-two of the world’s brightest teenagers, into the International Space Training Camp, their lives are forever changed. Overnight, they become global celebrities in contention for one of the six slots to travel to Europa—Jupiter’s moon—and establish a new colony, leaving their planet forever. With Earth irreparably damaged, the future of the human race rests on their shoulders. For Leo, an Italian championship swimmer, this kind of purpose is a reason to go on after losing his family. But Naomi, an Iranian-American science genius, is suspicious of the ISTC and the fact that a similar mission failed under mysterious circumstances, killing the astronauts onboard. She fears something equally sinister awaiting the Final Six beneath Europa’s surface. In this cutthroat atmosphere, surrounded by strangers from around the world, Naomi finds an unexpected friend in Leo. As the training tests their limits, Naomi and Leo’s relationship deepens with each life-altering experience they encounter. But it’s only when the finalists become fewer and their destinies grow nearer that the two can fathom the full weight of everything at stake: the world, the stars, and their lives.

The Six: A Story about Boys, Laughter, and a Lifelong Friendship is a feel-good memoir about an unforgettable group of high school buddies and their antic-filled coming of age in the 1980s. Frank Alessandra's hilarious stories of youth and camaraderie accurately speak to the less expressive bonds and support structure of male friendship. But even though male friends may not be comfortable openly sharing troubles the way women do, hidden beneath the surface of these fun-filled tales is a heartwarming connection between six boys, as they rely on one another to get through the trials and tribulations of growing into young men. Along this journey, they confront real problems: shattered dreams, deep regrets, heartbreak, and racism. Whenever life presented such a challenge, The Six rallied, and over time, they realize that what they share is about more than just the laughs. In the end, the grown men understand why it is they hang on to each other and the priceless support their thirty-year friendship still provides. "Good male friendships started in childhood can last a lifetime and sustain a man in his later years." - Dr. Geoffrey Greif, University of Maryland School of Social Work "Male friendship can provide support, strengthen identity, and offer meaningful companionship. It's certainly something worth the effort for men to develop and maintain in their lives." - Peter M. Nardi, Ph.D., Sociology, Pitzer College. For more than 20 years, Frank Alessandra has relied on an annual get-together with five childhood buddies to soothe the stresses of adult life. Together, the men reminisce about hilarious events from their younger days. A sentimental desire to share these stories of youth and innocence inspired Alessandra to uncover a passion for storytelling through writing. A financial analyst by trade, he graduated with honors from Moravian College and received an MBA with honors from Lehigh University. He lives in Flemington, New Jersey, and has two teenaged daughters, Alyssa and Jennifer.

'Six Sigma' is a quality concept initially used by Motorola and then developed beyond manufacturing by GE Capital. It has underpinned that organisation's phenomenal success. In essence it is a way of scientifically measuring your current success (or failure) rate in relation to customer expectations (regardless of industry sector) and then ensuring that improvements are made. Six Sigma is the application of a new model of working, statistical measurement and process control to TQM. The 'normal' position of businesses today is three sigma (or a defect rate of about 5-10%); six sigma - a defect rate of less than four in every million - is the ultimate goal. This book explains the concept of Six Sigma and its statistical basis; explains the benefits which can be achieved by using it in any company and then outlines how to implement such a programme.
