THE DRAGON AWAKENS The nine hybrid barons--mysterious oligarchs who ruled the fortified cities that emerged after Armageddon--are no more. Gone, not by the civil war fought by a courageous band of exiles, but trapped in a web of evil 4000 years in the making. As Tiamat, a living, sentient ship, hovers in orbit over Egypt, the nine Overlords of an ancient civilization are reborn. The planet Nibiru will live again on Earth, and humanity will be enslaved, or die. SERPENT OF EVIL He is a being of inhuman evil: a melding of dragon, myth and machine. He is Lord Enlil, ruler of the Overlords. As the barons evolve into creatures infinitely more dangerous, the egomaniacs who ruled from the safety of their tower Tiamat, safeguarding the ancient race, is now the key to the fruition of their plan. Kane and the Cerberus exiles, pledged to free humanity from millennia of manipulation, face a desperate-perhaps impossible-task: stop Enlil and the Overlords from reaching the mother ship ... and claiming Earth as theirs.

GUARDIANS OF POWER! Shrouded in manipulation and mystery, a deadly order grips the treacherous post-nuclear world, one that conspires to weaken and subjugate humanity as it has for eons. Yet the oligarchy of hybrid barons is slowly losing its power over insurrectionist forces, led by rebels willing to lead mankind out of its yoke of slavery. Though the timeless secrets of Earth and its oppressors remain locked, the sheer fortitude of the human soul remains strong. ... SACRED NEXUS In the heart of Cambodia, a portal to the eternal mystery of space and time lures both good and evil to its secrets. Now, a deadly imbalance has not only brought havoc to the region, but also threatens the efforts of the Cerberus warriors. To have control of the secrets locked deep within the sacred city is to possess the power to manipulate Earth's vast energies...and in the wrong hands, to alter the past, present and future in unfathomable ways. ...
Mysterious barons who once controlled postapocalyptic America have evolved into their true entities, inhuman overlords poised to reclaim the planet they were forced to abandon millennia ago. All that stands between the complete enslavement of the human race is a group of exiles, waging war against an enemy of unlimited power and patience. REIGN OF TERROR A sacred pyramid in China is invaded by what appears to be a ruthless Tong crime lord and his army. But a stunning artifact and a desperate summons for the Cerberus exiles puts the true nature of the looming battle into horrifying perspective. Kane and his rebels must confront a four-thousand-year-old emperor, an evil entity as powerful as any nightmare now threatening humankind's future. ...
Founded by white males, the interracial cooperation movement flourished in the American South in the years before the New Deal. The movement sought local dialogue between the races, improvement of education, and reduction of interracial violence, tending the flame of white liberalism until the emergence of white activists in the 1930s and after. Thomas Jackson (Jack) Woofter Jr., a Georgia sociologist and an authority on American race relations, migration, rural development, population change, and social security, maintained an unshakable faith in the "effectiveness of cooperation rather than agitation." Race Harmony and Black Progress examines the movement and the tenacity of a man who epitomized its spirit and shortcomings. It probes the movement's connections with late 19th-century racial thought, Northern philanthropy, black education, state politics, the Du Bois-Washington controversy, the decline of lynching, the growth of the social sciences, and New Deal campaigns for social justice.
As humanity emerged from the rubble of nuclear war, so did history's darkest secrets, deliberately concealed beneath a cunning web of lies, half-truths and contrivance. Now, as alien overlords ready their blueprint for absolute control over planet Earth, daring rebels fight back against grim odds and an enemy of superlative power whose only failing may be their inability to grasp mankind's fierce will to survive. The Cerberus warriors must endure the most frightening tests of their ingenuity when they discover secrets linking alien technology, Nazi time-travel experiments and a 260-year-old nightmare time-trawled in a new quest for power. The Pacific is swarming with SS troopers led by a dangerous woman and her strange advisor whose capacity for evil is rooted in the dark energy of the occult.
The calculated new bid for planet Earth by the Supreme Council has changed the face of war for the Cerberus rebels. As the enemy's avarice invokes total damnation of the human race, the battle plan now extends far beyond disarming a group of power-hungry god kings. Now it's a fight for survival against powerful interlopers-fully prepared to finish what they started eons ago. ... RADIANT EVIL Buried deep in the Mayan jungle amid a civilization of lost survivors and emissaries of the dead is an artifact that hides secrets to the prize-planet Earth. In sinister hands, it guarantees complete and absolute power. Kane and the rebels have just one chance to stop a rogue Overlord from his furtive grab for glory, but it means joining an unholy quest with an old enemy in a race to stop the skull throne from revealing answers to malevolent actions. =====
