Last Hope for Survival: Unofficial Graphic Novel #1 for Fortniters
For young Fortnite players, this might be the ultimate reading experience-a graphic novel adventure with hundreds of full-color images that takes them into the world they love best! The mission is simple: Four kids must save what's left of humanity by crossing a Husk-infested landscape to a secret government installation packed with volatile rocket fuel and state of the art security systems. Then, they must launch a satellite into space before a gigantic maelstrom smashes them to bloody splinters. If it were easy, it wouldn't be Fortnite. When 98% of the world's population disappears in the blink of an eye, the isolated survivors, four teenagers named Cody, Sarah, Idris, and Kiki each cower in the ruins of their homeland, pounded by strange storms and hunted by ravenous monsters. One by one they discover a hopeful sign of life from afar, a Beacon, that calls on to them to keep moving in search of answers. In their pursuit of the source of this signal, they find each other and struggle to get past their differences. It won't be safe or easy, but their survival, and that of humanity, relies on them learning to work together in search of answers. They are, after all, humanity's last hope. Will they find a way to survive and start again in the aftermath of the deadly storm, or die trying?

Improve Your Word Power: Test and Build Your Vocabulary
Put your vocabulary skills to the test with this witty and engaging book. Improve Your Word Power is primarily a collection of multiple-choice challenges in which the reader is asked to decide which definition of a given word is correct. But it's actually so much more than that. Each topic is themed - from words borrowed from French to words about colours; words from Shakespeare to words that sound alike - and the answers are wonderfully informative and accessible, each giving readers the chance to say `Gosh! I didn't know that!' even with quite familiar words. Interspersed throughout are boxes that feature odd definitions, confusable words and fun facts that make the language come to life. Written by Sunday Times bestselling author Caroline Taggart, this is a book that is aimed at readers who want to improve their vocabulary for the sheer enjoyment of it - and have fun doing so.

Blackjack Insiders: How Two Pit Bosses Beat the Casinos at Their Own Game
The public is fascinated by professional gamblers who know how to beat the almighty casinos. Blackjack Insiders takes it a step further: The author and his mentor aren't only professional gamblers, they're also gambling professionals. The book shows exactly what the steely-eyed sharp-dressed casino executives behind the tables are looking for and thinking as they size up players. Blackjack Insiders is more than just a memoir about card counting. Many of the insights into advantage play at blackjack from the casino's point of view have never before been revealed. Card counting has been a hot topic for decades and, with the proliferation of casinos throughout the country, it remains so-with a twist. Unlike the old-school counters, the new breed of blackjack advantage players are out for blood. Readers can't help but get caught up in the drama that awaits the author and his partner in every casino they hit. The book also shows that inside knowledge of casino operations gave the author an edge, but any average person with an affinity for arithmetic can become a successful blackjack player. Blackjack Insiders will be heavily promoted on the author's blog, Behind the Curtain, and on gamblingwithanedge.com, which receives more than 2,000 unique visitors per month. The author will appear on at least three popular Las Vegas and gambling podcasts. Andrew Uyal will participate in open-mic nights, book signings, and local book events. Huntington Press, Las Vegas Advisor, and publisher Anthony Curtis have long-established relationships with a diverse and extensive network of media contacts, including major national and international outlets such as USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Cigar Aficionado, Spike TV, TMZ, Vice.com, Good Morning America, the Today Show, and the Travel, Discovery, and Learning Channels. Huntington Press' primary website, LasVegasAdvisor.com, attracts approximately 300,000 uniques and 4-million page views per month and is frequently employed to promote new and topical Huntington Press titles. This ability to profile and promote products via our own online (and print) publications is supplemented by opt-in interest-specific email lists comprising 100,000+ customers and members of the media.

New York Crosswords: 50 Big Puzzles
From New York magazine, a spiral-bound collection of fifty recently published crosswords--plus a bonus one created by beloved American composer Stephen Sondheim, the magazine's original puzzle constructor, for its first issue in 1968. Every year, millions of people attempt to complete a crossword puzzle, whether in print or online. Recent studies have even shown that the actual number is growing, owing to a rising public desire for less screen time and more activities that keep brains active. A number of research trials have found that regular crossword activity is among the most effective ways to preserve memory and cognitive function, and a recent trial from the NIH found that these benefits can last as long as ten years. For fifty years, New York magazine has published some of the most entertaining, addictive crossword puzzles in America. This spiral-bound book collects fifty New York puzzles by master puzzle creator Cathy Allis; adds a classic from the New York archives, created by Stephen Sondheim in 1968; and puts them together with a covered spiral binding for easy, stay-flat solving and portability.

Japanese Culture Through Videogames
Examining a wide range of Japanese videogames, including arcade fighting games, PC-based strategy games and console JRPGs, this book assesses their cultural significance and shows how gameplay and context can be analyzed together to understand videogames as a dynamic mode of artistic expression. Well-known titles such as Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter and Katamari Damacy are evaluated in detail, showing how ideology and critique are conveyed through game narrative and character design as well as user interface, cabinet art, and peripherals. This book also considers how `Japan' has been packaged for domestic and overseas consumers, and how Japanese designers have used the medium to express ideas about home and nation, nuclear energy, war and historical memory, social breakdown and bioethics. Placing each title in its historical context, Hutchinson ultimately shows that videogames are a relatively recent but significant site where cultural identity is played out in modern Japan. Comparing Japanese videogames with their American counterparts, as well as other media forms, such as film, manga and anime, Japanese Culture Through Videogames will be useful to students and scholars of Japanese culture and society, as well as Game Studies, Media Studies and Japanese Studies more generally.

A Complete Guide to Practical Play
Experts agree that regularly solving tactical exercises is a vital component of chess training. However, it's also widely acknowledged that there is one major drawback to traditional chess puzzles - students know for sure that there is a genuine tactic in the position waiting to be found, whereas during a real game there is no such guarantee! In this workbook, Volker Schleputz and Grandmaster John Emms offer a unique framework to practise chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and - most crucially - even the definite existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analysing carefully selected games, from beginner through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, searching for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. ------ Are you making the most of your chess talent? Do you always perform to the best of your ability? Do your results match up with your understanding of the game? If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then read on!In The Survival Guide to Competitive Chess, Grandmaster and experienced tournament player John Emms reveals the secrets of how to maximize your potential and improve your results. Drawing upon his own over-the-board experiences, Emms tackles the all-important aspects of practical play: concentration and behaviour at the chessboard; playing for a win or a draw; winning good positions and saving difficult ones; handling time trouble; avoiding silly mistakes; understanding your strengths and weaknesses; building an opening repertoire; using chess computers and software; preparing for opponents; understanding and utilizing the finer points of the rules; and much more besides. Read this book and play every game with the confidence that you really can give it your best shot.
