Wings of Ice is a true life story of a young man growing up in a farming community in southwestern Washington. After incurring two devastating broken backs prior to the age of twenty, he and his new wife moved to Alaska where he graduated from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and embarked on a life full of adventure as a teacher, Alaska State Trooper, Protection Officer for the Department of Fish and Game, homesteader, bush pilot and guide for fishermen and hunters. It is a tale of survival and perseverance against the forces of nature in Alaska, and his battles with the bureaucrats within Fish and Game, Bureau of Land Management, Federal Aviation Agency and the United States Park Service. Wings of Ice also details his fight for survival after being mauled by a grizzly bear, struggling to remain alive after falling through the ice of a river in the middle of winter at minus forty-five degrees as well as losing power to his aircraft engine over a forest fire. The story is told with frankness, insight and humor that will provide the reader with many hours of enjoyment.

In a gloomy valley deep in the Transylvanian Alps there lay an isolated village and an imposing castle. Numerous men had lost their way when travelling there, and none had ever been seen again. When Heike Lind and his companions, Mira and Peter, arrived there they soon discovered that the villagers lived in a constant, paralysing state of fear – a fear that was somehow connected with the ladies who lived in the castle, the Princess Feodora and the stunningly beautiful Nicola …
This book is about entering, surviving and discovering the truths and the untruths of suffering deepest depression and the vicissitudes of life so far. It is a humorous, some times heart-breaking and yet a heart-warming story of mind over matter, of medical miracles and life - changing events told by a pilot as viewed from his cockpit of life. Having no medical training, the author describes the symptoms in aeronautical terms which are analogous to the conditions directly observed during this serious illness. Depression has overtaken heart disease as the world's No. 1 illness. I know. I survived both. Little is known about depression. There is much theory. Few facts emerge from direct experience as the few survive to tell their true story of the uncontrolled spin of this deadly unstable condition we call depression. The expression 'Ice on your wings' is part of the friendly but competitive world of banter often used amongst military aircrew in meeting the challenges of their profession, remaining in high spirits and above all maintaining their sense of humour about the risky business of living and flying. In reality, it is of course, a very dangerous aerodynamic condition. John Farron is a Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve (Training Branch). He is a Qualified Gliding Instructor and holds a Private Pilots Licence. He holds an appointment as Special Projects Officer for Headquarters Air Cadets, Royal Air Force College, Cranwell. He was appointed MBE by the Queen in 2001 and is a 'Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society' and runs his own Business Development Consultancy.
Flights have been made with an airplane in icing conditions in order to test the effect of exhaust heat applied to the wings as a means of preventing ice formations. Other ice-prevention equipment, including an exhaust gas-heated pitot-static head, hot-air-heated windshield, and an inflatable de-icer of recent design, were also tested.

Following the bestselling novels The Left Hand of God and The Last Four Things comes the final installment of Paul Hoffman’s stark, epic trilogy. Thomas Cale has been running from the truth…. Since discovering that his brutal military training has been for one purpose—to destroy God’s greatest mistake, mankind itself—Cale has been hunted by the very man who made him into the Angel of Death: Pope Redeemer Bosco. Cale is a paradox: arrogant and innocent, generous and pitiless. Feared and revered by those who created him, he has already used his breathtaking talent for violence and destruction to bring down the most powerful civilization in the world. But Thomas Cale’s soul is dying. As his body is racked with convulsions, he knows that the final judgment will not wait. As the day of reckoning draws close, Cale’s sense of vengeance leads him back to the heart of darkness—the Sanctuary—and to confront the person he hates most in the world….
