"Sometimes in my tent, late at night, I think I can hear the stars scraping against the sky.” After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving . . .

Once in a while a project comes along that I know is going to be HUGE and I recently learned of one originating in Italy named The Global Hamlet that is going to be just that. It’s a ground breaking literary experiment which is set to launch in April 2015 and I am very excited to be telling you all about this fantastic venture. This is going to be the first, great experiment of a people’s edition of a literary work. It is the entire world annotating and illustrating William Shakespeare’s Hamlet throughout the web. Think Wikipedia, but with Hamlet and you are on the right lines! The Global Hamlet is going to be a living book, the first never-ending collective of a literary work. It will se . . .
