In the early 1900s, author Peter Newell wrote tow special books for children to enjoy along with their parents. For the youngest, these were a "read to me" books. For children with a few years of experience, they could be read privately and enjoyed. Every page of story is accompanied by an illustration showing exactly what Newell pictured happening as he wrote the story. But, each book had something very special about it. For THE ROCKET BOOK, right in the middle of the text, from page to page, special pictures showed how the hole being made by the errant rocket grew and grew! For THE SLANT BOOK, Newell had everything set at an angle. Even the book was trimmed at an angle so the outside matched the inside. We are uncertain if these ever were published together (it is doubtful) but here they are. Together. To enjoy. Please note that because of their age, these stories are in the Public Domain.

Big names have always dominated baseball, and one of the biggest in recent history is Roger Clemens--the Rocket. As a baseball great, he has shown what it means to succeed, both on the field and off, in his near quarter century of major-league service. The Rocket: Baseball Legend Roger Clemens journeys from Clemens's humble and sometimes difficult childhood through his illustrious career in Boston, Toronto, New York, and Houston. Clemens rose through the ranks, setting a new example of devoted work ethic and responsibility to team and fan alike. Through it all he remained a dedicated family man, not a trait usually associated with the free-for-all image of a major-league baseball player. Joseph Janczak traces Clemens's career from his high school days; through his University of Texas collegiate baseball (where he was given the pre-Rocket nickname of "Goose"); and on to his minor-league and major-league career. Baseball's image when Clemens first started in the halcyon days of the mid-1980s quickly dissolved into that of a sport saddled with crises and scandals, such as gambling, steroids, strikes, and fan distrust. But Clemens rose above it all and has set an example for the fans, who he says are the reason for his hard work on the mound each game. The Rocket includes thoughts from teammates, opponents, and Clemens himself on his legendary career. Janczak also discusses the ongoing steroid controversy and the Rocket's philanthropic endeavors to the community. Written for baseball fans of all ages and all levels of knowledge of the game, The Rocket shows why baseball is America's pastime and why some stars still deserve to be idolized.

WINNER OF THE DEXTER PRIZE OF THE SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY Launched by the Third Reich in late 1944, the first ballistic missile, the V-2, fell on London, Paris, and Antwerp after covering nearly two hundred miles in five minutes. It was a stunning achievement, one that heralded a new age of ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles. Michael J. Neufeld gives the first comprehensive and accurate account of the story behind one of the greatest engineering feats of World War II. At a time when rockets were minor battlefield weapons, Germany ushered in a new form of warfare that would bequeath a long legacy of terror to the Cold War, as well as the means to go into space. Both the US and USSR's rocket programs had their origins in the Nazi state.

"The annual county fair. The one time every year that residents of Bluffside come together in holy matrimony to celebrate the creation of fairs. Unexpectedly, three girls showed up at my door and convinced me to attend the fair, because the mayor of Bluffside had taken away their titles of former-Miss Summer Solstices. They were also kind enough to provide me with a shiny new rocket launcher, so how could I say no? So with my sidekick Albert, we set out on a grand adventure to this beloved county fair to see what I could to do make the three no-longer-Miss Summer Solstices once again official-former-Miss Summer Solstices. The county fair would never be the same again. At least, not until next year."

That "one small step for man" in July 1969 was made possible by a small group of Germans captured by the Americans at the end of WWII. The Rocket's Trail is about one of these men, his direct links to crimes against humanity, and how US Cold War Warriors went to extreme lengths to cover them up. The story is revealed through the eyes of Jim Black, an English scientist drafted in to the secret post-war intellectual reparations programme. Black's personal ambition leads him into a deception that denies the German rocket scientists to Britain and delivers them to America. Black joins them there but when he discovers the truth about one of his new colleagues, he must choose between his new career and complicity in covering up unimaginable crimes. Can he find redemption, and what price must he pay as Washington sets about suppressing the barbaric back-story of one of their prize rocket scientists? The Rocket's Trail blends a fictional hero with real historical figures including Wernher von Braun, J. Edgar Hoover, Eli Rosenbaum, and Arthur Rudolph, the Director of the Saturn rocket programme and the only former Nazi eventually expelled from America.
