Where will we get our electricity when the oil and coal are gone? Why should I care? Abundant cheap electricity is a key element in getting and maintaining high human living standards around the globe. Stated another way, electricity is the foundation of modern technology. Without it, we go back to sailing ships and the horse. Anyone who thinks for a moment that we could feed and clothe our 21st century population using 18th century technology is nuts. Everything in your world depends on electricity either directly or indirectly. The food you eat, the water you drink, the car you drive, are all possible because of electricity. This cannot be overstated. Electricity is civilization. The world consumed 20.1 trillion kilowatt hours of energy in 2010, up over 3% from the year before. Of this, 13.9 trillion kw-hrs comes from hydrocarbons, 2.6 trillion from nuclear, and 3.1 trillion from hydroelectric. Earth-bound renewables hardly make a dent. The EIA predicts world net electrical consumption will increase to 25.5 trillion kw-hrs by 2020 and 35.2 trillion kw-hrs by 2035. Even if you don't fully understand the enormity of the numbers, just remember that we are using more energy today than we did yesterday, by a lot. I repeat, where will we get our electricity when the oil and coal are gone? I wrote this book to draw attention to this disaster looming on the horizon. Electrical energy is the one thing our civilization cannot live without and sooner or later the oil and the coal will be gone. Nuclear isn't the answer on many levels and the conventional earthbound alternative energy sources are simply not capable of sustaining our present demand. So what are we to do? I suggest we need to think big now so that we don't crash big later. Building a system of satellites capable of delivering 50 trillion-kilowatt-hours of pollution free solar power from space every year will also produce a robust global economy. It will be like Columbus rediscovering America but instead of just another continent, we will open up other worlds for us to conquer. Open up the High Frontier and we open up our children's future to endless new horizons. There is only one power source capable of meeting humanities energy needs and all future demands, the SUN, and the best place to harness its power is collecting sunlight in SPACE. Without it our civilization will collapse but does America have the political will to even attempt such a project? Or have we already started? Find out when you order your copy of Out of the Cradle.

Bonita Wagners page turning novels, Called From Darkness and Date With The Devil, first brought you into the life of Chyna Wilson. The gripping tale of Chynas struggle for her life as she tries to escape the satanic cult in which she was raised, kept readers sitting on the edge of their seats from the first page to the last. In Cries From The Cradle, Chyna is placed in unimaginable terror. Her secure family life is revisited by an evil everyone thought had been destroyed. Ian Foster, Brandon Fosters brother, revitalizes the satanic cult and a human sacrifice is chosen. Halloween will culminate their revenge. Once again, Texas Rangers, Travis Bonham and Manny Ruiz are called in to help. Its a race against time as they set out to stop the cult before its too late. But, ultimately it is Chyna who must face down her past...even if it means death.

A “superbly plotted” (Los Angeles Times) page-turning classic from the undisputed Queen of Suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark. A minor road accident landed county prosecutor Katie DeMaio in Westlake Hospital. That night, from her window, she thought she saw a man load a woman’s body into the trunk of a car...or was it just a sleeping pill induced nightmare? At work the next day, Katie began investigating a suicide that looked more like murder. Initial evidence pointed elsewhere, but medical examiner Richard Carroll saw a trail leading to Dr. Edgar Highley. He suspected that the famous doctor’s work “curing” infertile women was more than controversial—that it was deceitful, depraved, and often deadly. But before Richard could tell Katie his fears, she left the office for the weekend and an appointment for routine surgery...in Dr. Highley’s operating room. “A harrowing tale” (The New York Times Book Review) that’s “indescribably suspenseful” (San Francisco Chronicle), The Cradle Will Fall is a page-turning thriller of the highest order.
