One of South Africa´s most astute social and political observers of his time wrote Being-Black-In-The-World in 1973 at a time of global socio-political change and renewed resistance to the brutality of apartheid rule. Publication of the book was delayed until he had left the country to study at Yale University as his publishers feared that the apartheid censorship board and security forces would prohibit him from leaving.
Captain James Holland is the pilot on a routine flight from Frankfurt to New York, packed with people eager to be home for Christmas. When a passenger collapses from what appears to be a heart attack, Holland is forced to request an emergency landing at London´s Heathrow Airport. But to his great surprise, the air traffic controllers will not let him land in England - they tell Holland that his sick passenger has contracted a dangerous new form of influenza and that the plane must return to Germany. But when German officials also refuse the landing, and other European countries follow suit, Holland begins to suspect that he´s in much more trouble than anyone´s letting on. In fact, his sick passenger is carrying a deadly virus accidentally released from a Bavarian laboratory, and it is feared that everyone on board is now infected. At the same time, someone with access to the CIA´s computers wants to shoot the plane out of the sky, and there is a United States ambassador on board with powerful terrorist enemies who want to see him dead. While the panic on the ground spreads from the White House Situation Room to a small airport in the Ukrainian Republic, Captain Holland has only one concern: Where and when can he land? 1.

During the 1840s, America and many countries all over the world began to embrace a new mode of thinking. Countless newspapers began to report individuals who could communicate with the dead. Rather than feared as something dark and unnatural as it once had, many individuals all over the globe began to embrace this new wave of spiritualism. Seances were not only accepted but became quite a common pastime in American households. In 1886 a new device hit the scene, guaranteed to allow just about anyone to communicate with spirits who had passed on. The talking board was thus introduced to everyday society. Some believed the original Ouija board was a genuine channel in which to communicate with the dead. Others were skeptical - but enjoyed playing with talking boards nonetheless. Everything changed, however, when the film The Exorcist hit theaters in 1973. For the first time, the Ouija board was not seen as an innocent toy or device, but as a means to channel Satan himself. Seemingly overnight, the Ouija board was considered an evil object - a cursed object. To this day, the Ouija board continues to produce mixed feelings in people all around the world. But what most people fail to realize is that these historic talking boards are not the only objects in existence that are believed to be evil or cursed. In fact, there are many objects scattered around the globe that leave a trail of terror, paranoia, and even death in their wake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Blake.

Kate Daniels is a co-pilot aboard the space shuttle Liberty. Liberty is to deploy a space defense system satellite created with the latest American technology. The shuttle crash-lands in the uncharted, mountainous frontier between North Korea and China. As the ranking able-bodied officer, Kate takes charge, evacuating the crew from the crash site. A mountain warlord captures the Liberty´s crew, intending to sell the shuttle and its cargo to the highest bidder. On the world stage, this crisis rapidly escalates. The North Koreans forbid an American search and rescue operation, sending their own troops into the region instead. The technology on board Liberty is invaluable to both the North Koreans and the Chinese. The U.S. President orders American armed forces to full alert, preparing for a military incursion to locate the shuttle. This could be the flashpoint for the long-feared nuclear showdown between North Korea and the U.S. Monitoring these spiraling events with a personal interest is Major Trev Galt, Kate Daniels´ estranged husband. Since his breakup with Kate, Galt has become romantically involved with Meiko Kurita, White House correspondent for a Japanese news agency. Galt had thought he was over his wife, but Kate and the shuttle disappearing without a trace re-ignites his unresolved feelings for her. While Kate and her crew struggle to survive, Galt and Meiko risk their lives to untangle the Korean Intercept; a race against time that pitches them into a labyrinth of treachery reaching from the corridors of Japanese corporate power to the blood-splattered back alleys of Tokyo, from the White House to the barren, hostile mountains of North Korea. 1.

Eva Webb didn´t know what she´d find the night she secretly followed her fiancé. She had feared he was meeting another woman. But it was so much worse than that. The man she loved betrayed and kidnapped her, packing her onto a truck destined for the black market to be sold to the highest bidder. But when the vehicle is ambushed, she is delivered into the hands of her fiancé´s enemies: mercenary brothers who would stop at nothing to take him down. For Gabriel and Syn Rivera, hijacking the truck and stealing its cargo was another job, another way of taking back what was stolen from them. Discovering Eva on board was an unexpected bonus. They now held in their grasp the one thing that could bring down an entire organization, making her a pawn in a deadly game - a game in which she´d need their protection to survive. But that protection would come at a price. Now captive to the brothers, Eva would learn that they have always shared their women, and she would be no exception. They would keep her safe. They would protect her. They would make her theirs. But in a world where criminals often wear two faces, where putting your trust in the wrong people can get you killed, will Eva find she has mistaken lust for love, or will this unlikely union survive? 1.
