The Nazi Titanic from the Author: Robert P. Watson. Built in 1927, the German ocean liner SS Cap Arcona was the greatest ship since the RMS Titanic and one of the most celebrated luxury liners in the world. When the Nazis seized control in Germany, she was stripped down for use as a floating barracks and troop transport. Later, during the war, Hitler's minister, Joseph Goebbels, cast her as the "star" in his epic propaganda film about the sinking of the legendary Titanic. Following the film's enormous failure, the German navy used the Cap Arcona to transport German soldiers and civilians across the Baltic, away from the Red Army's advance. In the Third Reich's final days, the ill-fated ship was packed with thousands of concentration camp prisoners. Without adequate water, food, or sanitary facilities, the prisoners suffered as they waited for the end of the war. Just days before Germany surrendered, the Cap Arconawas mistakenly bombed by the British Royal Air Force, and nearly all of the prisoners were killed in the last major tragedy of the Holocaust and one of history's worst maritime disasters. Although the British government sealed many documents pertaining to the ship's sinking, Robert P. Watson has unearthed forgotten records, conducted many interviews, and used over 100 sources, including diaries and oral histories, to expose this story. As a result, The Nazi Titanic is a riveting and astonishing account of an enigmatic ship that played a devastating role in World War II and the Holocaust. Visit NaziTitanic.com

Graveyard Of Ships Starship Scorpius Book 2 from the Author: Jessie Jasen. The year is 2350. Earth is in the Planetary Alliance with aliens who claim to be our creators. But not everybody agrees with the new doctrine. Starship Scorpius is sent to explore space in search of advanced extraterrestrial technologies that will give us an advantage over our alien allies. The battle for supremacy begins here
 On its mission to deep space, United Starmarine starship Scorpius arrives on the Delta Moon. Scans reveal atmospheric anomalies on the surface. First Commander Sy Race and Cadet Maya Scott fly to the surface to explore. Scott and Race discover a graveyard of ships hidden in a volcanic cave to be the cause of the anomalies. Upon closer inspection, they discover the fragments of the Explorer shuttle, a United Starmarine vessel that disappeared twenty years earlier when it collided with a black hole. Have they discovered the first known wormhole in the First Quadrant? STARSHIP SCORPIUS SERIES is infused with aliens, AIs, ghosts, starships, high-tech, mysterious space phenomena, battles for life and death, and the central question of what it means to be an individual within the collective—human and alien—in the galaxy of the 24th century.

Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties. He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature.
