This is a book about knife combat – it is about carrying a knife as a deadly weapon and, when the need for deadly force arises, knowing how to use it. It is about a fighting knife, how to carry it, how to draw it and how to engage it in a kill-or-be-killed situation." Bob Kasper left no doubt why he wrote this book. Many of you may already be familiar with Kasper from his writings in Tactical Knives magazine; his knife designs, especially the Scorpion; or his practical instruction in the tactics, techniques and procedures of edged-weapon combat. Those of you who never had the chance to train with, correspond with or read his writings are in for a treat. Paladin is honored to be able to offer Bob Kasper's Sting of the Scorpion to the public for the very first time. In it Kasper imparts his considerable knowledge about knife design, selection, carry and draw; but, most important, he reveals his time-tested principles for using the knife on the battlefield. In his exclusive foreword, training partner and friend Kelly McCann sums it up best: "Bob Kasper's Sting of the Scorpion was written by a guy who had both been stung and had stung – something too important to overlook against a backdrop of ever increasing skilled, but perhaps not experienced, instructors. We're all fortunate Bob wrote down his thoughts, beliefs and training methodology regarding edged weapons or his untimely passing would've left an even larger void than it did.

The Long Range Desert Group was Britain's original Special Force in the Western Desert long before the SAS burst onto the scene. Sting of the Scorpion is the exclusive, authorised, inside story of the tough LRDG raiders of the Second World War, drawn from the unpublished records of the famous force. The unit won unrivalled mastery of the North African desert in their wide-ranging and heavily armed trucks, earning grudging praise even from Rommel, the Desert Fox himself, for their skilful reconnaissance, punishing raids and powers of evasion.

MURDER AND RAPE AT A REMOTE MILITARY BASE. . . Conflicts tear a defense counsel as he learns his client is innocent, or is he? It is the height of the Cold War. An Air Force Bomb Wing is stationed near Oscoda in northern Michigan. A brutal rape and murder of a local girl shocks the community. A witness identifies the killer as a black male, which can only mean that he's from the base; one of the men in blue. Two weeks later, the Blue Scorpion strikes again; savagely raping and murdering a local waitress. The evidence all points to one suspect, a black airman, George Torrance. Oscoda's Mayor insists on a searing notice sent to all black airmen to avoid local women; the Air Force commander agrees. The court martial panel is selected to insure the guilt and execution of Torrance who insists he's innocent. A veteran JAG trial lawyer is flown in to prosecute. The appointed defense counsel is the least experienced judge advocate lawyer on base, Lt. Tony Jeffries. As the trial progresses, Jeffries waivers between believing that his client is innocent and having a gnawing sense that he is guilty. The court's verdict stuns everyone, as do the events that quickly follow. This is a taut, compelling story of military justice at a remote base where the usual rules of evidence and burdens of proof may or may not apply and the reader, like Jeffries, will wonder until the very end whether the verdict is just or not. While fictionalized, the story is based on a true event.

No creature has quite the sting in our mythology and folklore as the scorpion. From the dawn of human civilization they have been a dangerous figure in our imaginations—poisonous, precise, and deadly quiet—but as Louise M. Pryke shows in this book, their bad reputation has overshadowed many exceptional qualities. Scurrying across hundreds of millions of years and across every continent except Antarctica, this book gives the scorpion its due as one of nature’s longest lasting survivors. Indeed scorpions are older than dinosaurs. An ancient arthropod, their form—notable for its pair of pincers and an elegant tail that holds a menacing stinger high in the air in a permanent striking position—hasn’t changed since prehistoric times, though today there are some 1700 different species. Throughout our existence scorpions have served as a powerful cultural and religious symbol—sometimes dangerous, sometimes protecting—from the Egyptian goddess Serket to Zodiac astrology to folk medicine. A fascinating tour that takes us from the art of North Africa to the American Civil War to the markets of Beijing, Scorpion is an homage to one of earth’s oldest residents.

With all my degrees and knowledge, how could I have lived with my head in the sand for so long? I'm thinking of nicknaming myself 'Ostrich'... head in the sand, backside flopping around in the air, going around in circles, tripping over my own long legs and awkward feet, never getting anywhere at all. it certainly seems an appropriate label, especially given the latest mess I'm now working my way through.Dr. Magdalena LaSige, a thirty-three-year-old criminal archepsychologist, throws herself headfirst into finding a kidnapped Carmelite nun—the sister of her former professor, The handsome and wealthy Dr. Peter Janus. She is given ancient pictures and symbols sent from the kidnappers, clues in an archetypal trail of deceit. The Pyramids of Giza, DNA codes, constellations, medicine, money—these symbols, stories, and legends all combine to challenge everything Magdalena has taken for granted as truth. And the truth seems to be the last thing Dr. Janus wants to discuss. What is his connection with the pharmaceutical companies he consults for, and how does that play into the kidnapping? is the 'scorpion's sting' a medical project or something much more sinister? Painfully aware of her limitations, Magdalena uncovers religious, medical, and governmental lies while racing against time. Will she solve the mystery, or will the truth behind the deceptions leave Magdalena paralyzed by the scorpion's sting?

But as the day progressed, the march turned violent, sparking a military revolt that led to the temporary ousting of Chvez. Over the ensuing, turbulent 72 hours, Venezuelans would confront the deep divisions within their society and ultimately decide the best course for their country - and its oil - in the new century. An exemplary piece of narrative journalism, The Silence and the Scorpion provides rich insight into the complexities of modern Venezuela.

Entomologist Justin O. Schmidt is on a mission. Some say it’s a brave exploration, others shake their heads in disbelief. His goal? To compare the impacts of stinging insects on humans, mainly using himself as the gauge. In The Sting of the Wild, the colorful Dr. Schmidt takes us on a journey inside the lives of stinging insects, seeing the world through their eyes as well as his own. He explains how and why they attack and reveals the powerful punch they can deliver with a small venom gland and a "sting," the name for the apparatus that delivers the venom. We learn which insects are the worst to encounter and why some are barely worth considering. The Sting of the Wild includes the complete Schmidt Sting Pain Index, published here for the first time. In addition to a numerical ranking of the agony of each of the eighty-three stings he’s sampled so far (from below 1 to an excruciatingly painful 4), Schmidt describes them in prose worthy of a professional wine critic: "Looks deceive. Rich and full-bodied in appearance, but flavorless" and "Pure, intense, brilliant pain. Like walking over flaming charcoal with a three-inch nail embedded in your heel." Schmidt explains that, for some insects, stinging is used for hunting: small wasps, for example, can paralyze huge caterpillars and then lay their eggs inside so that their larvae can feast within. Others are used to kill competing insects, even members of their own species. Humans usually experience stings as defensive maneuvers used by insects to protect their nest mates. With colorful descriptions of each venom’s sensation and a story that leaves you tingling with awe, The Sting of the Wild’s one-of-a-kind style will fire your imagination.
