The Goliath Stone is a visionary tale from Larry Niven and Matthew Joseph Harrington. Doctor Toby Glyer has effected miracle cures with the use of nanotechnology. But Glyer's controversial nanites are more than just the latest technological advance, they are a new form of life-and they have more uses than just medical. Glyer's nanites also have the potential to make everyone on Earth rich from the wealth of asteroids. Twenty-five years ago, the Briareus mission took nanomachinery out to divert an Earth-crossing asteroid and bring it back to be mined, only to drop out of contact as soon as it reached its target. The project was shut down and the technology was forcibly suppressed. Now, a much, much larger asteroid is on a collision course with Earth-and the Briareus nanites may be responsible. While the government scrambles to find a solution, Glyer knows that their only hope of avoiding Armageddon lies in the nanites themselves. On the run, Glyer must track down his old partner, William Connors, and find a way to make contact with their wayward children. As every parent learns, when you produce a new thinking being, the plans it makes are not necessarily your plans. But with a two-hundred-gigaton asteroid that rivals the rock that felled the dinosaurs hurtling toward Earth, Glyer and Connors don't have time to argue. Will Glyer's nanites be Earth's salvation or destruction? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Goliath Stone is an action/adventure thriller set in the First World War & based on factual occurrences. The protagonist, Lieutenant Miles Armstrong, is a Canadian who enlisted in the Canadian cavalry & later transferred to the Royal Flying Corps. The story starts with Armstrong, who is multi-lingual, being recalled from front line service & seconded to the Foreign Office. He is told that he will fly to Rumania to rescue their queen from the Germans. Queen Marie, wife of the ineffectual Ferdinand of Rumania, is a one-time sweetheart of George V of England. Marie was a noted beauty who created as much interest in the society pages as the late Diana does in our time. The second motive of the assignment is to assist the Rumanians to recover their national treasures that had been sent to Russia for safekeeping when the Germans took Bucharest. But now the Tsar has been deposed, Russia is in revolutionary turmoil & Marie wants her country's treasures saved. Armstrong's third & secret assignment is to separate to the others. He is told that in 1907 the Irish crown jewels (the property of the English crown) had been stolen from Dublin castle. The German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, acquired them & gave them as a gift to Ferdinand, king of Rumania. Armstrong is told that he is to attempt to remove the Irish jewels & get them back to England. While being briefed in London he meets the lovely Anna-Marie DeCourville & has an affair with her, unaware that she is trying to steal one of the Irish jewels known as the Goliath Stone. With his mechanic, Sergeant O'Reilly, he flies to Jassy in Rumania, the new capital, now that Bucharest has fallen. There he meets Marie & her Canadian lover, Klondike Joe Boyle, now a Colonel in the Canadian army. Armstrong, Boyle & other go to Moscow but arrive as the Bolshevik revolution boils over, forcing them to break into the Kremlin during the fighting & recover the jewels. Armstrong again meets Anna-Marie & promises to give her the Goliath Stone.

STARTLING EVIDENCE THE EXPERTS IGNORE ... The arrowhead hunter descended a flight of stone steps leading from the cave floor to a chamber below. In this chamber were a number of stone boxes. He opened several of them and found they contained thin metal plates bearing characters in a script unfamiliar to him. But the chamber contained another surprise as well -- two huge stone sarcophagi. He removed the lids and beheld the mummified remains of individuals he estimated were about 9 feet tall. Remnants of leathery skin still clung to the bones, and the remaining patches of hair on the heads suggested one had been a blonde and the other a redhead.

4GW (Fourth Generation Warfare) is the only kind of war America has ever lost. And we have done so three times – in Vietnam, Lebanon, and Somalia. This form of warfare has also defeated the French in Vietnam and Algeria, and the USSR in Afghanistan…As the only Goliath left in the world, we should be worried that the world’s Davids have found a sling and stone that work." – Chapter 1, The Sling and the Stone: On War in the 21st Century. The War in Iraq. The War on Terror. These types of "asymmetrical" warfare are the conflicts of the 21st century – and show how difficult it is for the world's remaining superpower to battle insurgents and terrorists who will fight unconventionally in the face of superior military power. This change in military conflict may seem sudden.
