Outlaw World: Edmond Hamilton
On the trail of malevolent space pirates, Curt Newton and the Futuremen combat the evil machinations of the Uranian Ru Ghur, who plans the total destruction of the Universe! The Futuremen, the trio that battles injustice alongside Captain Future, all have their origins in the Moon Laboratory that is both home and headquarters to Captain Future. Referred to as a citadel of science, the Moon Laboratory is designed in a circular fashion and contains quarters for the Futuremen. A reference library containing the vast knowledge of the universe, the Brain´s personal lab, a large room that serves as both workspace and social area with a glassite window as ceiling and many other rooms, make up the Moon Laboratory, definitely the perfect place for an interplanetary hero to call his own. Grag is most definitely the brawn of the Futuremen. A robot constructed by the Brain and Captain Future´s father, Grag stands over seven feet tall and may be the strongest creation in the solar system. Constructed of inert metal, Grag is almost indestructible and powered by atomic energy deep in his chest. Grag´s greatest desire is to be considered human, a point that Otho tends to agitate him over again and again, leading to some of the funniest moments in the stories. Truly one of a kind, Otho is a unique android created by Captain Future´s father and the Brain. The synthetic man does not naturally resemble an Earthman, but Otho is well known for his mastery of disguise, a skill that has been useful for Captain Future on many occasions. Otho also is faster and more nimble than nearly any other being alive. Otho also enjoys the danger of each mission they undertake, almost as much as he likes to antagonize the humorless Grag about not being human. Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Winter 1946 issue of Captain Future magazine, Outlaw World is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

On July 22, 1992, Colombian druglord Pablo Escobar walked out of the luxurious prison he built for himself and disappeared into the Colombian jungle. His audacious escape destroyed the nation´s tenuous cease-fire with its infamous narcos, and pushed it into open war with the Medellin drug cartel. Over the coming days and weeks, the United States launched a joint military and intelligence operation with the Colombian government, assembling a team of expert personnel and an arsenal of state-of-the-art weaponry and surveillance technology the likes of which the world had never seen. Their mission: to track down Pablo. But this time, they knew it would not be enough to just capture Escobar. This time, they would have to finish the job. This time, they were going to kill him. 1.

We are the people our parents warned us about is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world´s most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses. He ´cooked´ ecstasy and ice for them. He was at meetings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him. It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal Police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos. This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah´s confession. He knows he is a dead man running - that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake Australians to the looming threat in their midst - the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the Police and legal system to deal with it. 1.
