Published first as a six-part serial in 1932, When Worlds Collide is a story of golden-age cataclysmic vision, bursting into the hearts and minds of science fiction readers ever since.

When Worlds Collide was made into a film in 1951, and inspired various comic strips and pulp conventions in Science Fiction, and is now available as an ebook for the first time.

Heck challenges the conventional wisdom that the Wahhabi movement or classic Islamic doctrines are the root causes of terrorism in the Middle East. Instead, he argues that modern Middle Eastern terrorism stems from aborted efforts by Western intelligence agencies to co-opt political Islam as an opposing force against other emerging global ideologies deemed more politically dangerous at the time. The greatest chance to neutralize these fringe elements lies not through the imposition of Anglo-American democracy but in the creation of constructive economic development programs that ensure the distribution of wealth to the economically disenfranchised.

Some Decisions Change Your Day. Some Will Change Your Life. While the headlines screamed “Hollywood Heartthrob Marries Girl Next Door,” the public relationship of Jack Harrington and Grace Winslowe never revealed the private struggles that threatened to pull them apart–and when celebrity biographer Jada Eastman starts digging, she discovers that there’s more to this couple than anyone could guess. Their relationship began like a scene from one of Jack’s movies. Leaving behind a dead-end relationship and the bitter Chicago winter, Grace had moved to Southern California to start a new life. Meanwhile, Jack had established himself as an up-and-comer with considerable acting talent, and a private heartache. When a fateful accident pulled the two of them together, they couldn’t avoid their initial attraction or the vast differences in their values and lifestyles. Now, against the backdrop of Beverly Hills and the 24/7 nature of the entertainment world, Jada grapples with her own beliefs as she encounters the spiritual chasm of this famous couple. Can Grace and Jack face the consequences of their own personal histories–and can the biographer avoid being affected? As the three of them examine the couple’s bittersweet story, it becomes clear that everyday decisions can carry lifetime consequences when individual worlds collide.

Warning: Mad World Collide is an outrageously zany sci-fi comedy that will laugh you into the funny farm.In year 2021, Robert Davichi thinks he has the worst computer job in the world-until a hacker threatens his life and starts bringing down corporations and governments. In the midst of this the military tries to conquer America via the Internet, a neurotic computer gains consciousness and starts communicating with evil harebrained aliens from afar-and the President finds an abundance of gas in his alimentary canal. Robert's life is thrown into cosmic chaos trying to solve one disaster after another. The story careens between Japan, America, and a spaceship orbiting near the moon."The book will entertain a wide range of readers" according to Peter Heyrman, a fiction writer who is published in Twilight Zone magazine. Peter, with a sense for the warped, edited Mad Worlds Collide stating it is "funny, and on the edge".

This fictional work tells the story of a unique and lasting bond that develops between three individuals from very different backgrounds, whose worlds collide in Manchester, England in the late 1980's. Although set mainly in Manchester, London and Nassau, Bahamas, pivotal parts of the story are set in Los Angeles, California and New York City. Stephen Taylor is a young West Indian man who tries to loosen the shackles of a small town upbringing when he moves to England to attend university. He is troubled by the guilt that stems from his inability to accept his homosexuality and does everything in his power to hide from himself. Despite developing a powerful bond with Suresh Patel, a young, gay British man of Indian extraction and Tanya Collings, a troubled Canadian young woman, Stephen eventually returns to The Bahamas, where old demons resurface to haunt him. His path to self-discovery is fraught with challenges, which include a nervous collapse, a loveless marriage and the rejection of the man he truly loves. Ultimately, however, he finds redemption - and himself. Tanya Collings is a young Canadian woman who has endured unfathomable physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her parents. She meets Stephen and Suresh soon after escaping to England and develops a special bond with them that ultimately helps her to heal her damaged life. Although she generally distrusts all men, with the exception of her friends Stephen and Suresh, she eventually meets Michael Rouse, a young Englishman with whom she falls in love and finally marries. Suresh Patel is a brash (often coarse), self-assured British man of Indian parentage who is aware of his homosexuality from an early age, and accepts it completely. He moves to Manchester, after being rejected by his family and suffering a succession of tragedies. Suresh is the glue that holds the story together, providing a source of strength for Tanya and Stephen despite the challenges that he himself faces. Ultimately, the story is one of hope, of how the power of love helps three very damaged people heal their lives - and those of the friends who come to mean more than family. It is a story that transcends the boundaries of race, colour, class and sexual preference and will likely appeal to men and women everywhere who have had to grapple with issues of incest, sexual and physical abuse, bisexuality, homosexuality, violence and AIDS. In the author's view, the story is particularly pertinent to the current international debate on issues surrounding gay relationships. In the United States, the catalyst for the current discussion has been the subject of marriage between same-sex partners; but at its foundation, the matter is far more complex than that. Cultural and religious taboos, intolerance and ignorance are all a part of the current global pre-occupation with gay, bisexual and trans-gendered persons and these are all subjects that are explored and debated in When Worlds Collide.

The Inuvialuit region is the most under-reported and least-known portion of the North American Arctic, beyond its immediate community of anthropological/archaeological practitioners, and this book helps address that lacuna.
