Locked from the Author: Parker Witter. It had always been the three of us, and then it was the two of us-Ed and August. There was not, nor had there ever been a chance of a Noah and August. And that was fine. Because the truth was I had known Noah forever but I still had no idea who he really was. Especially not now. In this sizzling novella, one girl must choose between loyalty and love. August had the two best guy friends a girl could ask for in Noah and Ed. Then Ed confessed he felt more for her - and their new relationship changed everything. She had hoped it would be Noah that she'd end up with someday, but it's clearer than ever that Noah's just not interested in being a one-girl guy. When the small seaplane the three of them are on crashes, August finds herself injured and marooned on an island with ... Noah. Unsure of what's become of Ed, August and Noah do their best to not lose hope as they fight to survive on an island that is not as deserted as they first believed. But fighting the elements - and their attraction to each other - becomes a losing battle. Soon, a secret from Noah's past that could bind them to the island forever is revealed, and August must choose between giving into her feelings for him, or struggling to make it back home.

Lock In from the Author: John Scalzi. Fifteen years from now, a new virus sweeps the globe. 95% of those afflicted experience nothing worse than fever and headaches. 4% suffer acute meningitis, creating the largest medical crisis in history. And 1% find themselves 'locked in' - fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. 1% doesn't seem like a lot. But in the US that's 1.7 million people 'locked in' ... including the President's wife and daughter. Spurred by grief and the sheer magnitude of the suffering, America undertakes a massive scientific initiative. Nothing can fully restore the locked in. But then two new technologies emerge. One is a virtual-reality environment, 'The Agora', where the locked-in can interact with other humans, whether locked-in ornot. The other is the discovery that a few rare individuals have brains that are receptive to being controlled by others, allowing those who are locked in to occasionally 'ride' these people and use their bodies as if they were their own. This skill is quickly regulated, licensed, bonded, and controlled. Nothing can go wrong. Certainly nobody would be tempted to misuse it, for murder, for political power, or worse ...

Locked Out from the Author: Jeff Manza. 5.4 million Americans--1 in every 40 voting age adults-- are denied the right to participate in democratic elections because of a past or current felony conviction. In several American states, 1 in 4 black men cannot vote due to a felony conviction. In a country that prides itself on universal suffrage, how did the United States come to deny a voice to such a large percentage of its citizenry? What are the consequences of large-scale disenfranchisement--both for election outcomes, and for public policy more generally? Locked Out exposes one of the most important, yet little known, threats to the health of American democracy today. It reveals the centrality of racial factors in the origins of these laws, and their impact on politics today. Marshalling the first real empirical evidence on the issue to make a case for reform, the authors' path-breaking analysis will inform all future policy and political debates on the laws governing the political rights of criminals.

Locked In Place from the Author: Vivek Chibber. Why were some countries able to build "developmental states" in the decades after World War II while others were not? Through a richly detailed examination of India's experience, Locked in Place argues that the critical factor was the reaction of domestic capitalists to the state-building project. During the 1950s and 1960s, India launched an extremely ambitious and highly regarded program of state-led development. But it soon became clear that the Indian state lacked the institutional capacity to carry out rapid industrialization. Drawing on newly available archival sources, Vivek Chibber mounts a forceful challenge to conventional arguments by showing that the insufficient state capacity stemmed mainly from Indian industrialists' massive campaign, in the years after Independence, against a strong developmental state. Chibber contrasts India's experience with the success of a similar program of state-building in South Korea, where political elites managed to harness domestic capitalists to their agenda. He then develops a theory of the structural conditions that can account for the different reactions of Indian and Korean capitalists as rational responses to the distinct development models adopted in each country. Provocative and marked by clarity of prose, this book is also the first historical study of India's post-colonial industrial strategy. Emphasizing the central role of capital in the state-building process, and restoring class analysis to the core of the political economy of development, Locked in Place is an innovative work of theoretical power that will interest development specialists, political scientists, and historians of the subcontinent.

Locked In from the Author: Judy Mozersky. When Judy Mozersky, a young, beautiful and vivacious university student, suffered a totally incapacitating stroke at the age of nineteen, her plans and dreams were shattered and her life could not have looked grimmer. Unable to move or speak, but with the thinking part of her brain unaffected, Judy was LOCKED IN a body she could no longer control. Yet she defied the predictions of doctors who thought she would never be able to breathe on her own or leave a hospital setting of total dependency. Five years after her stroke, she lives in her own apartment in Ottawa, is learning to operate a computer, and takes a lively interest in the world around her. This is her story, told in her own words: words "blinked" out letter by letter in a feat of remarkable courage and determination. It is also an inspiring look at a close and devoted family offering its support and coming to terms with a terrible tragedy.

Locked Secrets from the Author: Robin Claussen. His best friend and business partner had been searching for Alissa Lockhart for years. When Noah Collington boards an oilrig to reconfigure the computers and install a security program for Conquest Oil Company he makes an unexpected discovery. Alissa Lockhart is on board the oilrig as well. Now all he has to do is convince her to return with him to his hometown, Gemini Dakota, to see his partner who happens to be her big brother. That task is easier said than done considering Alissa doesn't want anything to do with either one of them. Alissa Lockhart didn't need her brother or his partner. She was twenty-five, a successful welding specialist for Conquest Oil and she'd had enough heartache to last her a lifetime. The only problem was Noah Collington wasn't going to leave her alone until she agreed to accompany him back to Gemini Dakota. Which left her only one thing to do: lock all her secrets up and throw away the key. The heartache her brother had caused her by walking away from their family was nothing compared to the heartache her secrets could inflict on him if unlocked.
