Looking forward to unboxing the latest title, Jonathan unknowingly is selected to be among thousands of others to be thrown into a vast universe. Teeming with the unkown and yet dangerously familiar he encounters vistas and sites that are alien but at the same time crafted by man. This is the Far Horizon, where games and worlds collide in a million different places. People taken from different times and even different worlds mingle here, a giant melting pot of cultures irrespective of ideology or beliefs. In his journeys he finds individuals much like him who share his enthusiasm for adventure and yet they bear a yearning for home. From a teeming hostile metropolis, a verdant jungle world and barren icy wasteland, Jonathan discovers sites he thought impossible but exist in this strange place. Beasts, monsters and machines all live in an impossible time as well as the people around him. Such is the nature of the Far Horizon that even death and basic human needs have been tamed. Jonathan meets new friends, new people and new groups. They tell him of one individual who is spoken of as the first to bear witness to this place. Many search for him, but just as many dread to find him. As he continues to make connections and learn more of this uncertain place he is drawn into a vicious plot that could very well trap him for all eternity and prevent him from ever seeing the light of day ever again. It will take all his tenacity and wit to escape his assailants and perhaps change the face of this place forever.
CORRUPTION. STRANGE ALLIES. A DEADLY ASSASINATION PLOT WITH FAR REACHING CONSEQUENCES. Lawyer turned Hitman Mark King returns for another gripping adventure in his quest for justice. 18 months after the battle at Ain M’lila airfield & plagued by nightmares and flashbacks about his late wife, Mark is enjoying a well-earned holiday in the Scottish Highlands when he stumbles across some hitmen trying to assassinate a woman, Nadia Moore, a Hit woman out for revenge. After rescuing her, the two begin to uncover a threat which draws Mark back into the violent world of professional Hitmen. Mark follows a lead to the Ukraine and, with the help of Elena, a woman he rescues at the airport from her abusive boyfriend, he discovers a Sex Trafficking ring, a plot to assassinate the President of Ukraine, and a task force, created to eliminate a group of men who broke away from Invictus Advoca many years ago. Mark has also come to the attention of MI6 and an agent with an ulterior motive is sent to ‘supervise’ Mark. In a deadly game of cat and mouse, Mark King races to get to these men before Invictus Advoca do, and to the truth. He also learns Thomas Lundon has somehow survived but, that someone exists more senior than Lundon; someone more terrifying and more sinister, who will stop at nothing to take out Mark King. This time, they know he’s coming. But they don’t know where, they don’t know when and Mark King could strike at any moment. People are beginning to question whether Mark King still has a grip on reality as the line between revenge and justice, seems to become blurred.
WHEN THE GOVERNMENT WANT TO CATCH A SNIPER, THERES ONLY ONE MAN THEY CAN CALL Mark King is worrying everyone. Nadia Moore, assassin and love interest to Mark, is concerned that his Post Traumatic Stress, and paranoia is risking his sanity and that he is potentially becoming too dangerous and unpredictable. Meanwhile, Agent Williams is on the trail of a mysterious terrorist known only as Aahil, the half-brother of Mohammed Al Azidi and considered by intelligence agencies all over the world, as the world’s deadliest sniper. Aahil has stolen instructions from the UK on how to build a dirty bomb and unleash it on the west. MI6 know that in order to catch a hitman, they need a hitman, and there’s only one man they can call. Agent Nathanial Williams and Interpol Agent Habiba Al-Haq, fresh from a firefight with Aahil, attempt to track down Mark King, who has disappeared to persuade him to help them capture or take out Aahil. Can Agent Williams persuade Mark to take up the offer? The Director of MI6 thinks not but Williams can offer Mark a chance to get something he thought was lost to him forever. Is it time Mark gave up his guns for good before he completely loses his mind, as he battles ex Nazi scientists, a familiar organisation and his own personal demons, or can he regain some control over reality, prove his theory, and carry on before it gets him killed?
"Women Over 40 Are Not To Be Trusted". I saw this on a T-shirt in 2003. In Tokuyama. The wearer was a middle-aged Japanese man and it was his day off. The T-shirt was pink and the letters black... Fast forward to the future. At 40 I had my first baby, at 41 and a half, my second. That's all you need to know about that. We moved to country NSW. Daily life has evolved into: eating, drinking, school runs, shitting, shopping, surviving, cooking and cleaning. My life had become DULL. We are 25 kilometres away from the nearest Target and Coles. 50 kilometres in the other direction is ALDI. Sadly: these are important factors in my daily life. The bush is nice. People wax lyrically about the bush. Poems written and published, all very romantic. It's a nice place to visit. To live here: it's dull as batshit. We've just resolved the water issues by instilling a bore. Now my children don't bathe in mud. One day my gay best friend rang me from the city. He'd bought me a ticket to Hawaii. This is what happened.
