About the book: Mari Shu, a factory drudge in the year 4000-­something, must choose how to protect her sisters, her purity, and her own conscience in a bleak futuristic society that’s been polluted by smog, rampant commercialism, tacky jumpsuits, sexual perversions, unjust socioeconomics, interstellar travel, and inconsistent use of the Oxford comma.

In this second jubilant outing, Mari Shu decides to desert Olde Earth for the unfamiliar comforts and sexual practices of Mars...­and possible elevation to the elite Martian rover class.

Warning: Book contains offensive material. Buttloads of boatloads of offensive, vulgar, disrespectful, and possibly triggering material. Sexual, political, economic, racial, physical, typographical, religious—really, trying to hit all the big ones. Please make sure to sign your correct name to the hate mail so we can give proper credit in the follow-­up volume entitled, “The Hate Mails to Mari Shu”.

They were the medieval ancestors of two U.­S. Presidents, but were they the ruthless, land grabbing rogues history has painted them, or did they simply take up arms in defence of the Irish clans they had sworn to protect from the bloodthirsty hordes that surrounded them?

The love story, cradled in their saga, so enthralled another U.­S. President that he devoted many hours in composing a long poem entitled: 'The Conquest of Ireland'.

This historical novel is a tale of betrayal and love, slaughter, mayhem, and deception and you, the reader, will find it hard to believe it is closely based on a true story!

****************************************

The book contains many references to the Pagan culture which, despite the naysayers, existed in Ireland during that period; including the reason for wearing vizards on Hallowe'en, which is based on local homelore. It is also an attempt to regain ownership of a tradition which once was uniquely Irish.

This rugged new translation--­the first entirely new English translation in half a century and the only one based on the most recent critical edition of the Guatemalan MS--­allows Diaz to recount, in his own battle-­weary and often cynical voice, the achievements, stratagems, and frequent cruelty of Hernando Cortes and his men as they set out to overthrow Moctezuma's Aztec kingdom and establish a Spanish empire in the New World. The concise contextual introduction to this volume traces the origins, history, and methods of the Spanish enterprise in the Americas; it also discusses the nature of the conflict between the Spanish and the Aztecs in Mexico, and compares Diaz's version of events to those of other contemporary chroniclers. Editorial glosses summarize omitted portions, and substantial footnotes explain those terms, names, and cultural references in Diaz's text that may be unfamiliar to modern readers. A chronology of the Conquest is included, as are a guide to major figures, . . .

This is a comprehensive history of William the Conqueror’s conquest of England and the Norman takeover, the last time a foreign invader successfully subdued England.
From the intro:
“The principal states of modern Europe have at present attained a high degree of territorial unity, and the habit of living under one same government and in the bosom of one same civilization, seems to have introduced among the population of each state an entire community of manners, language, and patriotism. Yet there is perhaps not one of them which does not still present to the inquirer living traces of the diversity of the races of men which, in the progress of time, have combined to form that population.

By the summer of 1704 Louis XIV's vast armies threatened to dominate Europe.

Two men conspired to save the continent from French rule: John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, and Prince Eugène of Savoy.

Deep in Germany, these two committed allies sought to engage Louis's superior forces.

At Blenheim, their daring plans came to fruition.

The French were utterly destroyed.

From the deliberations of kings and princes, to the eyewitness accounts of frontline soldiers, ‘Blenheim: Battle for Europe’ is a compelling account of an often overlooked but major turning point in European history.

Pyrrhus Press specializes in bringing books long out of date back to life, allowing today’s readers access to yesterday’s treasures. This is a history that details the conquest of Egypt in the wake of the Roman Empire by the Saracens, the name given to the Muslim empire founded by Muhammad during the Middle Ages. From the intro: “For this book, so far as its purpose is concerned, perhaps no apology is needed. It aims at constructing a history, at once broad and detailed, of the Saracen conquest of Egypt. No such history has yet been written, although scattered essays on the subject may be found from Gibbon onwards—brief sketches or chapters in some wider treatise upon the Roman or the Arab empire. Indeed the fact that no serious and minute study upon the conquest exists in any language is not a little remarkable: but it has been mainly due to two causes—the scantiness of the material accessible to ordinary students, and the total want of agreement among the authorities, familiar . . .

Join the expedition of explorer, Hernando Cortez and meet Diego Orteguilla, a 14-­year old Spanish boy who signs on to sail from Cuba to the land of Mexico. Rumors abound of strange animals, exotic plants, a beautiful, whitewashed city surrounded by water and a people who own gold—lots of gold.

You will see Diego and the Spanish soldiers fight their first battle in Mexico and learn of the great Aztec empire and the king who rules this empire, Montezuma. Diego meets two young Aztec nobles, Tonacoatl, a prince of Tlacopan, and the brash, Cacamatzin—a prince of Texcoco. Diego also learns about Aztec life through his contact with Chiameca, sister of Tonacoatl.

The saga unfolds with Cortez’ far-­reaching decision to burn his ships, the only means of escape, and march inland to meet the mighty Montezuma and see the Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan. Many adventures await the reader as you witness the gigantic clash of cultures and ideas.

Pyrrhus Press specializes in bringing books long out of date back to life, allowing today’s readers access to yesterday’s treasures. This is a biography of one of Spain’s most notorious explorers and conquistadores, Francisco Pizarro. Naturally, as one of the best known conquistadors, Francisco Pizarro (1471/6-­1541) is also one of the most controversial. Like Christopher Columbus and Hernan Cortés before him, Pizarro was celebrated in Europe for subduing the Inca Empire, a culture that fascinated his contemporaries. At the same time, naturally, indigenous views of the man have been overwhelmingly negative. . If Columbus and Cortés were the pioneers of Spain’s new global empire, Pizarro consolidated its immense power and riches, and his successes inspired a further generation to expand Spain’s dominions to unheard of dimensions. Furthermore, he participated in the forging of a new culture: like Cortés, he took an indigenous mistress with whom he had two mixed-­race children, and . . .
