El hombre inocente: Novela sobre el poder y la corrupción del sistema carcelario mexicano

by Fernando Zurita

¿Cómo diablos pasó esto? ¿De qué se me acusa? ¿Qué ocurrirá con mi familia? César Romano no encontró respuesta a sus cuestionamientos. Miércoles al mediodía: sale de su casa; repentinamente, se le cierra un vehículo del que descienden dos personas. A jalones, lo bajan de su auto. Policía judicial... orden de aprehensión. Ahí comienza su pesadilla. Inmerso en la corrupción de jueces, ministerios públicos y policías judiciales, se ve obligado a sobrevivir en el infierno de la cárcel, y a enfrentarse a abogados penalistas que extorsionan por igual a sus clientes que a sus oponentes, cuyos excesos, desfiguras y cuestionables métodos son tan válidos y normales como el pan nuestro de cada día. En la prisión, todos dicen lo mismo: no cometí crimen alguno. Ese pensamiento está fijo en César Romano: soy inocente.

by Orli Zuravicky

Lucy has just joined the afterlife, and as a brand-new ghost she's mostly see-through, not able to stand or sit normally, stuck in the ballet clothes she was wearing before she crossed over...and stuck in middle school.

Assault on Juno

by Mark Zuehlke

Dawn, June 6, 1944. Off the Normandy coast 6,500 ships carry 150,000 Allied troops. This is D-Day, the long-awaited Allied invasion of German-occupied Europe. The Allies will storm five beaches. One is code-named Juno Beach. Here, 14,500 Canadians will land on a five-mile stretch of sand backed by three resort towns. The beach is heavily protected by a seawall, barbed wire, underwater obstacles and hundreds of mines. Behind these defenses a heavily armed German force waits inside thick concrete pillboxes and deep trenches that bristle with machineguns and artillery pieces. About 3,500 Canadians will lead the way. The fate of the invasion is in their hands. They either break the German defenses or die trying. Piling out of small, frail landing craft, they struggle through bullet- and shell-whipped water to gain the sand. And the bloody battle for Juno Beach begins. With his trademark you-are-there style, acclaimed military historian Mark Zuehlke plunges readers into a vivid and powerful account of the day-long battle that put the Allies on the march toward victory in World War II.

Ortona Street Fight

by Mark Zuehlke

December 20, 1943. Two Canadian infantry battalions and a tank regiment stand poised on the outskirts of a small Italian port town. They expect to take Ortona quickly. But the German 1st Parachute Division has other ideas. For reasons unknown, Hitler has ordered Ortona held to the last man. Houses, churches and other buildings are dynamited, clogging the streets with rubble. Germans with machine guns lie in ambush. Snipers slip from one rooftop to another. The Canadians seem to have walked into a death trap. This is a battle fought at close range, often hand to hand. Casualties on both sides are heavy. In the end, raw courage and ingenuity save the Canadians.

Rota, Herida y Valiente

by L. A. Zoe Alejandra Martinez

El amor los asusta. . . SeeJai y Rhinegold luchan por su independencia. Desde que un conductor ebrio mató a su hermana gemela a los 3 años, SeeJai se siente la mitad de una persona. Su madre todavía triste apenas recuerda que una de sus hijas sobrevivió al accidente. En la escuela secundaria, su mejor amiga la "divulgó" en Facebook como lesbiana. Lanzada a la calle justo antes de una gran tormenta de hielo, SeeJai debe sobrevivir. Un hombre "loco" no sólo se hace amigo de ella y la ama, sino que la ve como un alma mágica. SeeJai sólo quiere una habitación propia, un trabajo, y una carrera a la qué aspirar mientras asiste a la universidad. ¿Amor? Las personas a quienes amas mueren, te ignoran y finalmente te traicionan. Como hijo solitario de un rico abogado, Rhinegold se retiró a mundos de fantasía mientras crecía. Lo último que quiere es vivir como su padre. Salió de casa y se niega a ir a la universidad como su padre quiere. En vez de eso, utiliza su habilidad de artes marciales para proteger a la gente contra los criminales de la calle. Un caballero. Un samurai. Un asesino de dragones. Protector de los débiles. Una vez violó un tabú social para amar a una mujer. El único amor que quiere sentir es la adoración caballeresca de una dama hermosa. Al principio, cuando salva a SeeJai de congelación hasta la muerte, lo hace simplemente como el Caballero de Oro, como un deber. Incluso cuando se enamora de ella, se propone que su vida permanezca sin cambios. No puede manejar el que SeeJai insista en que vaya a la universidad, así que se retira aún más en fantasía. ¿Puede ella salvar a su salvador? ¿Puede Rhinegold protegerla de sus propios demonios?

The Art of Chess Combination

by Eugene Znosko-Borovsky

What, really, is a chess combination? It is a maneuver generally employing surprise and a sacrifice, in which pieces work together to bring about a sudden advantage. It is perhaps the most aesthetically satisfying and successful technique in the game. Some players believe that the combination is a spontaneous creation with no guiding laws; the possibility springs up in the mind like a flash of genius. In this classic work, however, Znosko-Borovsky proves that combinations can be studied. He demonstrates conclusively that they need not be a haphazard occurrence, but may be prepared for as an integral part of a player's game.The great modern teacher begins by examining the games of master players, including Capablanca, Alekhine, Rubinstein, Nimzovich, Tarrasch, Reti, Mason, Morphy, Bird, Euwe, Emanuel Lasker, etc. The games are grouped according to common features, and perceptively analyzed to determine what conclusions may be drawn. Znosko-Borovsky shows that every combination, however complicated, begins in a simple idea, such as an undefended piece, the bad position of the hostile king, the promotion of a pawn, or a discovered check.The Art of Chess Combination will improve the game of anyone who knows how to move individual pieces but finds it hard to plan many moves ahead to make the pieces work together. The exposition is easily understood; technical terms are almost completely avoided but clarity and precision remain."In the teaching of chess he may claim to have no superior." -- Philip W. Sergeant.

How to Play the Chess Openings
